The food is always amazing and the service was perfect.
Jak’s is a great neighborhood spot. Portions are large, satisfying and a great value. My steak medallions were served with a side salad, huge baked potato and vegetables. Bread is available on request. The meat was tender and tasty, with a delicious flavor of Moroccan spices. Will definitely return when they reopen. Understand they will continue to do takeout.
Perfect place to satisfy a steak craving. Menu offers a lot of choices and our food was delicious! Our waiter was very entertaining and provided excellent service. It was a great night for dining out!
One of my favorite Seattle institutions
Thank you so much! We're honored to be one of your favorite restaurants in Seattle!
A favorite of the family!

Great food, wine, and service
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, Tracy! We're glad that you enjoyed our food, wine, and service!
Service and food were fantastic!!
Thank you, Craig! We're happy to hear that the service and food were both fantastic!
First time eating indoors since February but we just had to celebrate a milestone birthday and the election! First time at Jak’s and it didn’t disappoint. Jak’s Benedict was super and the others loved their French toast & bacon. Great service, responsible servers and guests. We’ll be back.
Thank you so much for sharing your celebrations with us! We're glad that you were able to join us for brunch. We hope to see you soon!
Jak's is a great neighborhood steak house, with a wonderful atmosphere, extremely attentive and friendly waitstaff, and most importantly great steaks. The wine list and cocktail selection is top notch as well. We are very fortunate to have this establishment in the NE neighborhood.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We're grateful for the opportunity to serve such a great community!
I've been missing a great steak meal, and Jak's took care of me! The food was outstanding - perfectly cooked steak, and I like that the salad and veggies are included (not everything ala carte as many steakhouses). Our server was excellent - gave me a great recommendation on wine - not the most expensive, but perfect with my meal. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and I think their pricing is very reasonable for the quality. I felt very comfortable with the distancing and patrons wearing masks when not seated.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review! We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us.
My family misses our regular waiter. He is amazing! I forgot his name but he is an older gentleman.
Thank you for the review! I bet that would be Bill! He usually works Fri-Sun nights now. We're lucky to have him on our team! He is one of the best waiters out there!
We really enjoyed our meal at JaK's! The food and service was great!
Thank you so much for the review, George! We're glad that you enjoyed your visit with us!
Came with family. Ordered 3 steaks, a burger and the stuffed halibut. We are on a specific diet so asked for certain concessions on 2 of the meals. The server helped us with no questions asked other than asking if anyone had any food allergies (which no one ever asks). We enjoyed all the food, the ambiance and the great service. Thank you Jak's for a great experience!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Rick! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit with us!
Glad to see they have reopened! Food always is good & service excellent. Waiting for their Issaquah restaurant to reopen now.
Thank you so much for the review! All of our locations are back up and running now!
The food and service was amazing! JaK’s is our favorite!
Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear that the food and service were both amazing!
I absolutely loved it! This was my first time coming, however it was my sisters second time. She loved it just as much as her first experience. I will definitely be back. Food was delicious!
Thank you so much for leaving a review! We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us and we hope to see you soon!
I got the rib eye steak and the steak came with horseradish and the menu didn’t say anything about the horseradish.Other than that everything was great.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We do have "served with fresh horseradish" as part of the description for the Ribeye, but the print is small and easy to miss! We're sorry for the confusion!
Great to have this place open again. I had an excellent meal, as I have every time I have been to Jak's
Thank you so much, Evan! We're delighted to hear that you always enjoy your time with us!
I always order a filet mignon because I don't like dissecting my meat to eliminate the fat you get with cuts. I ordered the 10.5oz filet for $49 and I requested it to be cooked medium well. When I received it, there were 3 clear lobes of meat, divided by 2 large lines of fat. I've never had that with a filet, and I thought I was given the wrong cut. I decided not make a big deal out of it and dissected away. There was even more fat running through the steak than I thought, and it was cooked medium at best. I didn't even eat half of it because I was still getting fatty pieces in each bite. I told the server I was very unsatisfied and why, so he took it back to the kitchen. He came back and said the chef and manager agreed it was a poor cut of meat and they would be inspecting the rest of it, and they would therefore be comping us our $13 brussel sprout appetizer, but we would still have to pay for the horrible $50 steak. I've eaten here many times, and have never been had this kind of food experience before, but I guarantee I will never eat here again.
Hello there, Chris! Thank you for leaving such an honest review. Unlike most steakhouses, we do serve our filet mignons on the chain. It means you get more steak, but there is usually a bit of fat connecting the chain from the filet. Although, sounds like your steak had an excessive amount of fat. We always try our best to send out the best quality steaks, but sometimes a sub par cut makes it way to the table. I'm very sorry this happened to you.
I had the halibut stuffed with crab, and it was simply amazing. Makes for a great night when you can get a babysitter. Also family friendly if you want to bring thekids.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review, Timothy! We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us. The Crab Stuffed Halibut is a great recommendation!
My steak was cooked incorrectly twice. It was supposed to be cooked medium well and the first time was delivered very well done and dry. The second attempt was rare The server left my side items to snack on while they recooked my steak - but then attempted to deliver the new steak on a small plate - to be transferred back to my plate with my now very cold sides. Then we ordered dessert and it was burnt and soggy (creams brûlée). We had to choose a different dessert (apple cobbler) which was a huge disappointment - do not recommend. The manager had zero customer service skills and the waiter seemed to think that the fact that “they talked to the cooks multiple times” somehow made up for our horrible experience. There was no attempt to even cover the cost of the dessert until we brought it up as unacceptable. Errors can be made - and the blame for this terrible experience lays directly with the manager - who was unable to successfully manage a bad experience and ensure her clients felt talked care of - even in a less than ideal situation. Her ending comment was, “well - we didn’t seem to hit the mark with your order tonight.” I give this experience a 0 star - and I’m usually a huge fan of Jaks - but this was a total disappointment.
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave such an honest review. We would like to start by giving you our sincere condolences, as it sounds like your entire experience with us did not meet any of our standards. I would love to speak with you about this further.
Staff was great, steaks and sides were not up to par.
Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We'd love learn more about how our food was sub par!
We had an excellent meal. Portions are large. Our waiter was great. Food was delicious.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Julia! We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us!
Always a great place and meal.
Thank you for the review!
Monday night Prime rib dinner has always been a Good deal and Comfort food
for My busy family
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! We're glad to hear that you enjoy our prime rib special!
The Haystack (?) burger could easily be named best burger in Seattle, outstanding! The salmon was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Had a great time as always!
Thanks for the lovely review, Heather! I do believe you are speaking of the South Hill Haymaker burger on our to go menu!
Our go to for special occasions. Steak is always on point and drinks are excellent.
Thank you for the review! We're honored that we're your go to restaurant for special occasions!
We had spectacular service and great food.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review!
It’s always a good time at Jak’s. I’m a lunchtime regular, but with the pandemic, they’re dinner only right now. It’s good to know that the staff still know your name and your preferences, as well as maintaining an attitude that keeps you coming back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review!
The food is okay but really quite overpriced
There was a family 2 booths down not wearing masks, talking loudly and singing happy birthday- not cool given the Covid situation.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! If you have any suggestions on how we can be better, we're all ears!
As always friendly consistent and tasty.
Thank you for the review, Lara!
Premier food at affordable prices. Competitors give you less food of lower quality at higher cost. We've recommended Jak's for years. We dined in this time, but a week earlier we did takeout and it was extraordinary.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, Greg! We're honored to be one of your recommendations!
Bill the server was amazing, food was delicious, huge portions. Even during these uncertain covid times, their restaurant was immaculately clean, well spaced out seating, had digital menus you can look on your phone or single use paper menus available. All employees had mask on and lots of sanitizer stations through out the restaurant. I also liked their sanitized pens and used pen area. As well as their protocol for having us box our own left overs (i prefer to box my own normally). I would highly recommended all to come by and enjoy Jaks!
Thank you so much for writing such a great review! We are taking Covid very seriously, and we're glad to hear our cleaning standards and protocols don't go unnoticed. Bill is the best! We're very fortunate to have him on our team. He is one of the best servers out there!
Fantastic food. Melt in your mouth steak (we had the skewers and filet mignon). Service was warm and enthusiastic.
*COVID compliant - all employees wore masks and we sat ample distant away from other patrons.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review! We're taking Covid very seriously, and we're glad that doesn't go unnoticed!
Delicious steaks. Only complaint is service is a little pushy on add-ons and drinks.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're sorry to hear that you feel that way, we just always want to make sure you have everything you need!
Great for a date night!
Thank you for joining us for date night! We're glad you enjoyed your evening with us!
Happy to have an excellent meal same high quality as pre-pandemic.
Thank you so much for the review! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us!
The food was great I come there once a year sometimes twice a year I have not been disappointed not once the service is excellent
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We're honored that you keep returning, and that we get the opportunity to continue to serve you.
Celebrated our belated anniversary dinner on a weeknight to miss crowds and succeeded. Service and food were amazing! Can’t wait to go back soon!
Thank you for joining us for your anniversary! It's very belated, but I hope you had an amazing anniversary!
We had such a great time at JaK's Grill in Laurelhurst! The food was incredible and like we've never had before. The bartender was also excellent in making a drink of their choice for us. We enjoyed the Porterhouse steak between two people and an appetizer and dessert. We will definitely be coming back here in the near future to enjoy this lovely establishment.
Thank you for taking the time to write us such a great review, Mia! We're very glad that you enjoyed your visit with us. Can't go wrong splitting the Porterhouse!
