Jake's - Palm Springs Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic as always. Love, love, love the Soft Shell Crab sandwich. Also shared a humongous piece of Coconut Cake, delicious. It was very warm yesterday but sitting on the lovely patio with the huge umbrellas and the misters, it was very pleasant. Will return as soon as possible. Wish we had a restaurant like this in Rancho Mirage.
The food and the service was great. Had the tricolore salad and the poke, both were excellent. The highlight of the meal was my server, who was funny and interactive and just plain fun. I was a little self conscious dining alone, but she made it a fun and comfortable experience.
We love Jake's and they always have great food. We love the outdoor dining and the fact that we can bring our dog. One staff member was great and brought our dog a bowl of water and a doggy biscuit. We would have given Jake's Outstanding on everything, but there is one problem with the service. Although the staff is very friendly and very accommodating, they always need to ask the guest who ordered what. That always bugs us. There is a very simple way to correct that and that is to number the seating positions at the table and on the check. Other restaurants in Palm Springs use that method all the time and it's a sign of a great restaurant. Also, the host at the desk seemed gruff and curt when I talked to him. He could be a little more friendly. Just a thought.
I should have realized that when I received a call to confirm my reservation and was given wrong information, I was in for a bad meal.
I was told the corkage charge was $15 when it was actually $25. I told this to the hostess who wouldn't even listen. Furthermore I had to fight to get a table away from the entrance when there were several open ones out front.
I told our sever that I had a butter allergy at the onset and she assured me that was no issue- she was wrong!
My wife ordered the chicken Marsala which was tough and rubbery but she didn't complain as we had a beautiful night outside and a lovely view. I had the pad tai also with tough and rubbery shrimp but delicious scallops- too delicious in fact not to have butter. I asked the server if she was sure there was none and she confirmed it. She was wrong as I discovered through a long and sleepless uncomfortable night. I probably should have trusted my instincts but I did not and regretted it later.
There is no excuse for not adhering to a customer request regarding food allergies
We will not be back
My lobster roll had a hair in it. I sent it back and while they brought me a new one, there wasn't much of an apology and nothing comped. No manager came over either. I think that's a very rare but serious issue. Lobster roll bread was basically a subway type roll not the delicious buttery bread you want for your lobster roll. They put lettuce and tomato on it which I actually think takes away from the lobster too. It was more of a lobster sub than a lobster roll in my opinion. Plus, my first one had hair.
Met a friend for lunch.....we enjoyed the outside patio dining with plenty of shade. Our waiter was outstanding and we received great service. We ordered one of the specials of the day the Caprese salad and it was delightful!!! We will be returning during Restaurant Week.
I love Jake's. Simple as that. The whole crew there, from the host to the runner (Matt is a special favorite) to the servers to the owners, they all make us feel welcomed and appreciated. The food is very good, with the Miami Vice and Ahi Tuna salads being my favorites. But I've tried most everything on the menu, and like everything I've tried. It would be hard to name a bad dish. The outdoor dining experience is pure Palm Springs, and always provides the best people-watching of anywhere we dine. Hope Jake's is always there, 'cause if they are there, I want to be there, too. (Alas, summer is coming, and they usually close for a little vacation. They deserve it, though.)
Ordered a Manhattan and they only had the cheapest Makers Mark bourbon and nothing else. Ordered a medium rare fillet and got a well done fillet. No faster way to ruin a steak. Would've told the waiter but he never came back after bringing our meal. Offered us a big chocolate cake to make amends but I don't eat sweets - thanx anyway. Ate the steak cause it was getting cold and I didn't want it to go to waste. Not affiliated with the awesome Jake's in Del Mar. Bye Jake's of Palm Springs.
We came for a Mother's Day brunch. We waited a half hour for our table. They were busy, but a half hour is too long to wait. Service was ok as well, there seemed to be lots of people working the dining room, but had to ask for a few items that should have been brought (milk, toast that came after our food was cleared.) Food was ok, but not worth the prices. Cake was good. It just seemed like they were overwhelmed by the holiday. Might come back just for cake.
Very attentive wait staff..no waiting for mothers day brunch. Very busy.accommodated our request reservation perfectly the food was amazing just enough but NOT skimpy portions😎love the garden setting and view of the bakery on the side tempted my 2 yr old grandson!
Everything was great as usual until the end of the meal after we paid. The waiter came over and told us people were waiting so if we could go ahead and free up the table that would be great. The problem is we had not been finished with our meal long at all and were visiting with an old friend. We left immediately after his request but thought it was kinda weird and rude....
There is too much to say accept, if you are in Palm Springs and you do not go to enjoy the ambience , the service the literally perfect food, the wine even the butter is good.
It is a gem in our city, unpretencious however great for a date or a super event. There are no more words. Please eat here you will end up going every night.
I ate at Jake's with two friends on a Wednesday night. The patio is very pleasant. I had not been there in a year or so, so I was pleased to see that the food quality is still very good. The wine list is better than many places in Palm Springs and the waiter was friendly, efficient and knew something about the menu. Altogether a good dinner and experience.
