Jake's - Palm Springs Ratings and Reviews
The food was delicious as were the cocktails and the appetizer. I had the steak wedge which was a petit filet and a blue cheese wedge salad. My husband had the scallop appetizer which has 3 different toppings: black pepper, red pepper coulis And basil. He liked the black pepper the most. He had the swordfish as his entree which was a big serving of fish although it was a thin piece. Everything was good. Great waitress very attentive. It was loud in the small enclosed patio. The guy that was taking the dishes off the table tried to take my plate 3 times. When I was through. He says " your finally done.". Which I thought was rude. Aren't you suppossed to enjoy your food? Everything else was fantastic. I would go there again but ask to sit on the open air patio where the bar is.
We have been to Jake a few times and enjoy the food and ambiance. Unfortunately they only allow 90 minutes for a 2 person reservation and we were rushed at the end. Our waitress actually asked if we wanted desert half way through our main course. It was evident she was trying to get us finished for the next reservation. So sad to a potential wonderful evening. jim and susan.
Awesome place !!!the food was exceptional !! Truffle mac and cheese!! Watermelon gazpacho soup with feta cheese and avocado sooo divine !! The soft shell crab sandwich and the 3 big layers of chocolate cake ! Outstanding ! Great friendly service! Quite a good crowd ! Helpful to make a reservation !! A great place while your in Palm Spring!!
overall experience was very positive -- unfortunately we waited for 1/2 hour for them to honor our reservation -- after that everything was excellent -- the food and service were both excellent -- we were in a corner or the noise would have made it very hard to hear-
Usually my meal and service are excellent as this is a very convenient location for a client lunch. True I did order an egg white omelette with turkey instead of ham - they brought a regular omelette with the turkey on top - I started to eat it as I was with a client and will never complain in front of them. I did finally tell the waiter then half way through the meal another server came with the egg white omlette also the waiter said he was going to take the charge off for the egg whites which he did not. I paid the bill - they never came back to even fill our ice water. While this was an unpleasant experience in all due respects I have had much better service with above average meals there.
This was our first visit in quite a long time so we weren't sure what changes to expect in the menu or the service. The menu was good as always. We both had salmon and it was terrific. But we noticed most of the way through our meal that other diners seated after us were offered an "amuse bouche" to start and bread service. A couple of the tables seemed to be friendly with the staff so perhaps these were special gestures for regulars. We had to wait a while for our reserved table and were thanked for our patience. Even so, it would have been nice to try the amuse bouche and offered the opportunity to decline the bread service. Maybe if we go more often, we'll get the regulars treatment.
Probably our 10th visit, alone and with others. Obviously a favorite. But even friends can have issues and tonight unfortunately was one of those nights. Food was wonderful as always. Service was either distracting or non-existent. Every other table got bread and we had to ask- twice. Busboy was great at filling water glasses and fixing wobbly tables but not so good at clearing dishes. It was just an off night. Will be back
Every so often we like to have our 'date night', still so after 7 years! It's always at Jake's and tonight was as good if not better than ever. As starters, the watermelon gazpacho is addictive, the seared scallops were perfect and for entrees, my partner had the cioppino and I had the pad thai -- each with very generous amounts of seafood and simply delicious. A shared serving of their chocolate cream pie completed a lovely evening. Thanks Jakes!!
We went to Jake's based on Open Table reviews. The atmosphere was nice and the manager, Lola, was very helpful and attentive. The food was served lukewarm and we sent it back. When it was returned, my selection was dry and tough. Lola offered to replace it and I took advantage of the offer and switched to a pasta dish. The desert was a delicious lemon cake. Jake's did not charge us for my dinner, which was very professional of them. Perhaps an evening other than a Friday would have been a better choice for our first visit.
Although we generally enjoyed our dinner, we felt rushed when the servers kept coming to take our plates away before we had finished eating. A lower level of music would have made it easier to talk. A bit more light on the patio would also be helpful since it was hard to see what we were eating.
This was our first dining experience at Jake's. I was a little disappointed that the patio area was so small. It felt rather cramped. The food was good, we split a wedge salad and we both ordered steaks. Although we did not partake, the desserts looked fabulous! Trying the dessert is most likely what would bring me back to Jakes.
We didnt have a great table. The distance between the chair backs just wasn't enough for the wait staff and patrons to pass without bumping us constantly. The ambiance... No ambiance really unless staring into a cake fridge is your thing. The underside of the table was unfinished, and somehow I brushed it and got a load of tiny slivers in my dress.
The food was fantastic, the service too. We'll try it again for sure.
