Very nice outdoor dining. The food is good - not great. Even though we had a reservation we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. The waitress was very attentive - but the runners were a bit mixed up and confused (removing all silverware and dishes after only appetizers were served, mixing up the entrees among the guests, etc.)

Had dinner with a friend there. Vegetarian option (eggplant) was very tasty. Their deserts, mile high cakes and many varieties are so good, always save room for them! Love their "dining room" with only the open sky for a ceiling! Was noisy during dinner but every restaurant is noisy now - unless they are not busy!

Valentine's day. They seemed overwhelmed. Service was poor,. Slow fake friendly but dismissive. Amuse bouche was 1/4 of a med. size shrimp! Took desert order, then bought "free" choc. covered strawberries. My steak was grossly overcooked but all too busy to send it back. We still like Jake's but stay away on occasions!

Nice brunch spot. I'm gluten free out of necessity, and the restaurant was very good in accommodating my needs. It was a lovely, sunny day and it is always my first choice to eat outside, especially when coming from cold, snowy winter at home. Jakes accepts walkins and reservations. Many brunch spots require lining up for hours: not my style! And Jake is named after a lovely little dog named Jake! Now that's a winning combo. Good food good service and fun people watching!

We were a large group, and Jake's accommodated us with separate checks. The service was friendly and efficient. The entrees were good, but not extraordinary, and the menu was not real creative.
What was extraordinary was the cake! One piece was enough for 4 - 5 people, and everyone agreed it was amazing. It seems as if many people come to Jake's primarily for the cake.
Jake's should think about adding a restroom. One shared male/female one-person rest room for the entire restaurant is ridiculous, considering the population. No fun having a continuous restroom waiting line. Detracts from the experience.

Really enjoyed dinner at Jake's. The food was great - try the swordfish it's fabulous. Service was a little over attentive, but I'll put that down to me being European and not being used to that level of interruption. Still, I would recommend Jake's for dinner and especially for a special occasion.

The only problem with the menu is WHAT to order!!! Everything sounds so great. There were 4 of us and everybody LOVED what they ordered. Salads, main course, AND save room for dessert. Great service, ambiance, and food. What more could you want!!!

jakes is consistently good and the service is steady.
Be forewarned the portions, at least for what we ordered, are quite generous.
Unless you have a hearty appetite, you'll be taking home leftovers.
The meatloaf mac and cheese entree comes to mind as an example of abundance.

Jake's is consistently one of my favorite restaurants in Palm Springs. This latest meal was a Sunday brunch and my crabcake benedict was the best I've been able to find on the West Coast (I'm used to Maryland crabcakes!). Fortunately I had reservations as there were several conventions in town and all restaurants in the area had long waits otherwise. Even with the crowds we did not feel at all rushed although their service is normally first rate so this was not unusual.

My partner's pork chop was done to perfection, which, to his fussy standards, is a great accomplishment. My filet was done just as I like it, too. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, the owner adjusted the outdoor heater as soon as I requested it, and the cake, oh the cake, was delicious as always, even though it wasn't the salted caramel one we love so much.

Jake's is the best al fresco dining in PS!
We had a group of 6 - some of whom were coming from golf and were going to be a little late and Jake's was great in changing the reservation and in communication. We were chatty at lunch and were never rushed. Salads were delish! Deserts are HUGE - four of us split an apple pie!

Absolutely delicious Sunday brunch with out-of-town friends. Varied menu, great beverage list, and I challenge you to walk out without trying one of their gorgeous and delicious cakes. We took ours to go because we were full from brunch. Not only do the cakes look spectacular, they are also very fresh.
All of the serving staff was so gracious and anticipated guest needs.
We recently moved to the valley and this is our new favorite restaurant!

We had Sunday Brunch at Jake's, and had a wonderful time. The setting is Palm Springs casual with a laid back "funky" feel. The best seating is out on the patio. It's less noisy and not so dark. I had the Croquet Benedict, and although the portions were small, the dish was very good. My companion had the Miami Vice Salad. The romaine lettuce was somewhat bitter and the salad was underdressed. They were happy to provide additional dressing. There were generous portions of tasty jumbo shrimp mixed into the salad. The waiters were attentive and pleasant. The highlight of the meal were the tangy and tasty bloody marys, and the coconut cake was scrumptious. I would return to Jake's. There were so many unique menu items I'd like to try in the future.

Jake's serves excellent food from an eclectic menu. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting, with both indoor and patio options. Service is good tho occasionally erratic. I've only had lunch here, which I've enjoyed very much. You may have to walk a bit since parking is at a premium in this neighborhood midday.
