We celebrated my husband's birthday at Jak's Laurelhurst. The service was stellar. The cocktails were excellent, the wine list was fairly short with good choices and reasonable prices. The only reason that I didn't give the food 5 stars is that the New York and rib eye were a little thin, resulting in my New York being closer to medium than medium rare. Otherwise, everything was great and we'll be back.

We've been to all 3 JaK's restaurants a number of times and this was probably the best experience we've had. Our server, Skye, was outstanding. It was my mom's 83rd bday and she was treated like a princess--they even let her take her wine glass home! We hadn't been in a couple years and the food was absolutely delicious. There was another gentleman who helped at our table, too, and he was also fantastic. I don't remember getting service like that at the Issaquah location--ever!

My wife and I came to JaK's to celebrate her birthday and were not disappointed. JaK's is her favorite steakhouse in the Puget Sound area so I knew thatshe was going to enjoy her birthday treat. She had the ribeye and I had the Delmonico and we both had the house salad with Bleu Cheese dressing. Our steaks were a perfect medium rare as requested and our bottle of Northstar Merlot was a wonderful accompaniment.

We are blown away every time we visit. Every dish we ordered last night was delicious! The onion rings were crispy, flavorful and fresh. The Skewers were to die for and the Surf n Turf special was out of this world yum! The service is second to none - Becca is so personable, always on top of things and predicts our needs before we know them. Every staff member greets you with a smile on their face and a clear desire to make your visit memorable. JaK’s creates a warm environment with the best food in town! We can’t wait to come back.

Well, mixed frankly.

1.) Good atmosphere and immediate seating. +
2.) I asked for lemon wedge and Sweet n' Low in my water. I got a slice, not a wedge and no sweetener. "Bar help" came to table with slice, not wedge and I asked again. He came back with wedge saying, "Third time's charm." What?
3.) Crab cakes were nice size, but mediocre flavor.
4.) Onion rings were plentiful but didn't seem to be "panko" fried. +
5.) Bone marrow were delicious, but no spoon to get to them. +
6.) Yorkshire popover (main reason to come to JaK's) was hard and dry Hiss, Boo. -
7.) Carrot and broccoli side were very good. +
8.) Prime rib was done as per request. Lot of gristle + -
9.) Rib cut was smaller than twelve ounces.

Okay, that's enough. We'd possibly return to try your varied selections, but not for the Monday night special.

Thank you in advance of your response.

I kind of hate to drive even more people to the best steak house in the area. My family & I are from Omaha, NB and I try out the best Steak Houses on trips all over the world. I cut my own steaks and smoke & sear them.

Jaks has the same or better quality meats as any of the other local steak houses, at like 50-75% of the price. Whenever I go into any of the regional fancy houses I usually feel ripped off now because of Jaks. Occasionally they have something special, but other than that you can’t beat Jaks in the Seattle area.

The staff in Laurelhurst are excellent, especially Bill. He maybe the best waiter in town.
