Went for Vanentine's Day dinner. We arrived 10 minutes early, and we were seated immediately.
The food was excellent, and the portions were reasonable for the price.

The only issue that I had was that the tables were much too close together, and out table was perpendicular to a booth, so I was looking at a the back of a woman's had as I looked across the table at my wife.

I was also a bit surprised that they didn't give a flower to the women, as most restaurants that I have gone to on previous Valantine's Days did so.

It was a nice restaurant. The waiter, Paul, was good. Unfortunately, the $45 Jake's filet was overdone. It was supposed to be medium but it was very well done and dry. This restaurant is a bit far for us and it is located in a dangerous place to drive out of. The ambience was nice and I think locals would like it.

Went for Restaurant Week because they offered a wide variety on that menu. We found the food that we chose to be excellent! They also have this menu as a pre-fixe menu during the week. I would recommend this and will do it again. Eddie was our waiter. He was attentive and he gave very good suggestions.

I ate at Jake's Steak House for Long Island Restaurant week. The food was absolutely incredible! For starters, I had the Bang, Bang shrimp. My husband had the mussels in white sauce. Both were delicious! For my entrée I had the short ribs! It was the most tender, delicious dish! I didn't even have to use my knife! My husband had the stuffed pork chop! Amazingly tasty! Dessert was Apple crisp ala mode! And even the coffee was fabulous! I highly recommend this restaurant , and will be eating there again soon.

Having read many reviews I expected better We were there for restaurant week, our waiter
never spoke to us other than to ask for our order We all ordered the skirt steak, mine and my husbands was excellent, my friends was terribly overcooked I would not go back at regular price Jake's is on a par with a local pub

We went to Jake's for Restaurant Week. Our appetizers were delicious - the bruschetta and the shrimp. My husband's strip steak was very good. The skirt steak was disappointing - very chewy. I was also disappointed that there were NO reasonably priced bottles of wine. Bottles started at $45 and went up from there. No reason you can't offer $30-35 bottles of wine.

I went for the LI restaurant week and while the meal size was ample it paled in comparison
to the meals at other restaurants we tried during restaurant week. We had the ribs and the
skirt steak and they both suffered from way, way too much sauce. I doubt we will try them again.

I LEFT THIS FIVE STAR REVIEW ON YELP:
Went to Jakes tonight with friends. The three of us all ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. We each had a choice of starter. We had a Wedge salad, bruschetta, and a bowl of mussels.... all tasty, good quality served in generous size portions. Next two of us opted for the marinated skirt steak which came with mashed potatoes and frizzled onions and the other had stuffed pork chops. They were terrific, tasty and a good size portion. The third course was dessert. Two of us had an apple crisp ala mode. This was fabulous and once again, a large enough portion that we could’ve split it. The third dessert was a great tasting Creme Brûlée. Our waitress Nicole was friendly and attentive. I really can’t think of one thing about tonite’s dinner that could have been better. It’s been a while since I felt that way about a restaurant. Kudos to Jakes.

My husband and I have been to Jake's 3-4 times and always enjoyed it. This time, though, it fell short of expectation. Though my husband's skirt steak was excellent, my strip steak (on the price fixed menu) was tough as well as bland, without the crust or pop of flavor usually associated with the cut. The sangria we ordered was watery and without body or flavor. The apple crisp, though, was excellent. I also indicated on the Open Table form that we were celebrating a birthday. But no acknowledgement was made of that. I was not expecting a free dessert or drink (though it would have been a good PR move); even a Happy Birthday greeting would have sufficed. What is the point of having a place to identify a special occasion if no one acknowledges it. There are many steakhouses on Long Island and we will be trying another one next time around.

We have been to Jake's numerous times as it is a neighborhood favorite. We never have had a bad experience here. This past Monday night we took my son and daughter in law out with us for a celebratory dinner. The t-bone steak was outstanding as were the sides. They are very creative with coming up with new ones that are very delicious. Our waiter Eddie was fantastic. Very attentive and seemed concerned that we were satisfied with our meals and wine selection. The restaurant offered a 20% coupon for the meal as it was MLK Day. We will continue to patronize Jake's, be it for drinks and appetizers at the bar or full course dinners. It is a neighborhood jewel.

This was a family get together with our niece visiting from Oregon. Food was excellent, especially the lobster tails and filet mignon and creamed spinach. While the waiter was attentive, the food took extra long to arrive. There were 6 of us, but it seemed unusual and the waiter offered no explanation or apology.

As always the wine, drinks and service were all top notch. The salads were terrific. New to me, tomato, red onion, avocado was perfect. Tossed salad and whole baked clams oregenata were delicious. T-Bone, Lobster tails and lolliop lamb chops came out perfect. The fried onions, creamed spinach and sauteed mushrooms were the prefect accompaniment. Dessert of fresh tiramisu and creme brulee made the whole night a success.
