    The food was amazing! The service was very good as well, our waiter was patient attentive and friendly. The environment was open but intimate. We sat on the upper floor and enjoyed the view.

    Our first time at Jak’s but it will definitely not be our last! Delicious food and amazing service. We had the bacon wrapped scallops and the ribeyes-one cowboy style and one Gorgonzola bacon topper-both delicious and cooked to perfection. We made a reservation at 8:45 without realizing the kitchen closes at 9 but they did not make us feel rushed at all. Would highly recommend.

    one of my favorite steak houses in the PNW. I've never been to their other locations but the West Seattle location is great. The service is top notch from smiles starting from entering, to great waiter personality, and consistent topping off of drinks ect. A great date night option. Its casual and quiet enough to be comfortable and have a conversation with your party without having to yell or give those yes nods to non understandable dialogue. Then theres the FOOD!!! oh boy the food from the starters to the main to the desert is amazing. My steak people this place actually cooks your steak correctly. If you want a medium rare youll receive a medium rare. If you want a medium itll be medium. If not looking for a steak or your not at that date level of paying for a filet then go for their burger. You cant go wrong with the menu. Even the their bourbon pork is great. I have yet had a negative experience here. 100% worth checking out. Thanks Jak's!!!

    Everything was great except the 1/2 chicken dish we got. The chicken wasn’t good at all I can’t explain it. The sauce wasn’t good and the quality of chicken was bad. Loved our waitress. She thinks the chicken dish should be removed from the menu because multiple ppl have complained about it. She didn’t charge me for it which was nice. Everything else was really awesome

    I have been to Jak’s only one other time and that was at Issaquah about 6 years ago. I knew about the restaurant before dining there by their seasoning salt (WARNING-best seasoning in existence, bar none). I love their West Seattle location. It fits well into the Seattle vibe with its’ city rustic decor and early 20th century ambiance. The service was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. I will be back!

    I celebrated my Birthday on Saturday February 10th with 5 of my best friends. . Everything was perfect due to our server Gaylyn and the manager Scotty. They went above and beyond to make our celebration special. We have been goings to Jak’s since it first opened back in 1996 and are never disappointed. I hope I’m back for many more birthday celebrations.

    Connor was our server. He was very gracious, courteous and attentive. The food was good but very expensive. Also, a bit too seasoned with pepper flavor. On the negative side, the noise level was horrendous. We have dined at Jak's many times over the years. Last night was probably be the last time for two main reasons: Too expensive and very noisy. We do not want to repeat this costly and noisy experience.

    The service was great, but we were very disappointed with the quality and quantity of food. This restaurant is extremely busy so obviously doing well so I don't understand the "cost cutting" measures particularly with the sides. One side of Mac&Cheese was no more than 3-4 oz. and a side of grilled mushrooms consisted of 4 small/halved total 8 small pieces. The wedge salad appeared plentiful, but it's 85% lettuce. The prices are extremely high creating the expectation of something really special, it was far from that! I guess they get away with it because there's no competition in West Seattle. Next time we'll just go to Ruths Chris for a much better meal at comparable prices.

    Jaks is reliably good. A real steakhouse that cooks steaks the way they should be. Their side dishes are great as well as. I love their roasted Brussels sprouts. Ample to share at a table of 3-4. Great ambiance though a bit noisy. I prefer sitting in a booth.

    Every single time we come in here something is wrong with our order. This time our fries were cold and our $85 steak was cold the only good thing on the plate was the mac and cheese. The server had to remake our fries and my girlfriend on her birthday didn’t even want to re make the steak because we had already been there an hour. Last time we went in the chef couldn’t cook a $85 steak medium rare so we had to get that redone as well. This will probably be our last time unfortunately, circa has better steak and service than this place. The server was good and efficient though.

    As always the steaks were wonderful. I would caution those expecting more from the Bacon Wrapped Scallops - only 3 very small scallops making it an overpriced value for the quantity and quality.

    Was disappointed the Sandpoint location closed so when an event took us to West Seattle definitely had to dine here. Located in a happy urban area it did not disappoint. We both had the Bavette steak which we loved. Food and service were outstanding. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for that steak diner experience at a reasonable price point.

    All around good place to eat, especially for special occasions (cholesterol or general health might be a concern for regular dining). The only reason why we might not come back is that it is really hard for them to accommodate our family members who eat whole-food plant based. There were limited vegetarian dishes and no vegan dishes on the menu. They do have some nice vegetables there (we had Brussels sprouts), but would be nice if there was a hot entree that was vegetable- focused. (Most vegans are sick of salad and veggie burger suggestions). I think this would be pretty easy to do.
