We always stop in at Jake's when we are in Portland. I had the seafood newberg and my wife had the seafood fettuccine. Both were delicious. The service was exceptional.

Jake's was very good but I expected excellent and it wasn't that. Service was good and our waiter was attentive. Outdated decor. I liked Seasons and Regions better but Jake's is still a good meal.

This is a Landmark spot for seafood with fish flown in daily, served in clubby digs with a busy happy hour. So if you want a personable bartender or friendly server for some awesome seafood then Jake's should be on your to do list!

Hi, I am having lunch with 2 other ladies on Saturday about 12:30 pm, do you validate parking and where do we park? Do you think we will need a reservation on Saturday Feb 4th at lunchtime for 3 people? Thank you- Kim

Hi Kim I parked nearby but didn't validate parking so I'm not sure but I would definitely book as it is often packed so you can ask them about parking when you book Sandy

Yes, a McCormick and Schmicks gift card would work there. If you happen to have a Jake's gift card, that too would work obviously.

There was plenty of street parking. Taking a taxi is another option. We actually walked from our hotel. Walking was the better option since their portions were wonderful.
