Jake's - Palm Springs Ratings and Reviews

We had to be at Jake's for the last dinner service of the season. Closed until SEP, so we're counting the days when they reopen. Two of us had the filet, both a perfect temperature, and two had the cioppino, which is full of seafood and the broth is super delicious. Started out with crab cakes, excellent, and watermelon gazpacho, which doesn't seem to be on anyones menu elsewhere and very refreshing on a hot day. To everyone at Jakes, have a great summer!

we live in palm springs and eat brunch here often. they have a small outdoor
patio, which has a garden look. the bar is located outside and the bartenders
are great. there is also a dining area inside. this is a great place to enjoy
a meal outside when the weather is good. they close for the summer months.
when you are visiting the area Jakes should be on your list.

They had no air conditioning which made it a very unpleasant experience they say they had it on but I do not think they have one I believe they only have a swamp cooler which does not work very well for a room fill of people trying to relax and have a cool pleasant time.
They had a single overhead fan on for a room filled with people which was just moving air around.

The only fault I've ever found at Jakes is getting a good table. Even though my wife and I have reservations and are the first to arrive at the restaurant, we can never get a table we ask for. It is always reserved for someone else. Food is always good and fairly priced for Palm Springs. The atmosphere is busy but not extremely loud which allows for casual conversation. Wait staff is always good except for the hostess that never puts us where we would like to sit and never has a good explanation as to why.

We took friends for one last Jake's brunch before summer break. The food is excellent and the owners and staff are wonderful. Sadly, we can't get our fix again before they reopen in September. But we'll be there when the doors open!

We wanted to go someplace different for Father's Day brunch and found out about Jake's online.
Fabulous food, outstanding service. The brunch menu was very diverse with interesting choices. The best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Incredible We will definitely be coming back in the Fall.

It was our first time at Jake's, but definitely not our last. A beautiful courtyard setting with great attentive staff. Try the caperberry martini! OMG, it is so good! And a perfect companion to the lobster tempura appetizer....The sea bass was perfectly cooked. My dining partner had the meatloaf and scarfed down every last morsel. Said it was some of the best. Highly recommend Jake's. We look forward to a return visit!

I had the special manila clams entree, which I spooned up every bit or broth and my partner had the always-great swordfish entree. We usually share the tuna tartare and the wedge to star, which we did again. We are very regular diners at Jakes --- never disappoints.
Starting to go through Jakes' withdrawal symptoms as currently closed 2 extra days and soon will be closed for summer break. We start counting the days soon until they reopen in the fall!!

Should not have had to wait 30 minutes with a reservation! A comped glass of wine would have gone a long way. Locals remember things like this. Food was well presented and tasty. 3 of our party of 4 enjoyed their entrees, the chicken marsala quite tough and rubbery. Unusual for Jakes, maybe too busy during Restaurant Week.
A Palm Springs Tradition
Jake's is really a bit of a Palm Springs landmark. Gorgeous outdoor seating in the heart of the design district with an eclectic menu. The service is always excellent and friendly. If you're in the mood for a salad, the trio of salads that you a select from their wide number of choices is truly delicious. We enjoy lunch and dinner at Jake's and dine there regularly. The only reason why I don't rate it with 5 stars is that it's just not that type of restaurant. Jake's is casual and unpretentious and the prices are reasonable for all of their dishes and drinks. You can't go wrong with Jake's.
Great Food - Uncomfortable Table and Seating
The food at Jake's is always very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers, entrees, and decadent deserts. The outside tables and chairs do not make for a comfortable experience though. A table for four is no bigger than a table for two. There is no room for beverages, plates, and utensils when four people are seated at such a small table. The chairs are also hard as a rock. Cushions would be nice.
Parking is difficult - majority is patio seating
Although the food was better than average, the parking situation does not lend for an enjoyable experience. Drove around 10 minutes before we found a spot and this is off-season! Service was spot on - until the server who was refilling water and beverage wiped his nose first with one hand and then the other and never went to wash his hands! It was a triple digit evening and most of the seating is on a patio -- very warm. Our first time so did not know to reserve inside seating. Distracting music increased the level of conversation.
Tried once... will not go back.

I normally give Jakes 5 stars across the board but food was tad off. Ribs were dry (and I love their ribs). I got more bbq sauce and ate them.
Ashley was fabulous as always.
Thank you for doing Restaurant week once more and keeping the lower price point!
