We stumbled upon Jakes by accident. We were actually going some where else close by, but it was closed for renovating so we had to change our plans. Jakes was right there so we said let try it. Upon looking through the window we weren't sure we should go in. We thought it may be out of our price range,... More

We went to Jake's for brunch. It is a large restaurant with white table cloth service and prices to match. The waiter was a bit dozy and the service was slow. My egg scramble was okay but all in all, there must be a hundred better places to go for breakfast or brunch in Portland. We walked by about ten... More

We visited on a Saturday. Nice old style atmosphere. Disappointed by some of our food. There were shell pieces in the crab/scrimp cakes and the beef used in the beef stroganoff was of very poor quality. Greater attention is needed for Quality Control!

Called for reservations just hours before arriving on a Saturday night and still got a window seat. My wife and I split the porterhouse, and could not eat it all. It was really good, just a tad overdone on the thinner filet side, but very good flavor. Also had a shrimp cocktail with beautiful, flavorful prawns. And, their wine pours... More

The best salmon luncheon salad ever - freshly grilled and served on a bed of wild greens. Subtle dressing and reasonable priced.

We wandered about the food truck block that is kitty corner from the restaurnat. It was a hot day and nothing there appealed to us. I guess we wanted somewhere to sit, eat and cool off. We saw Jakes and decided to give it a try. We were seated at a window table and it was fun to watch the... More

We often have lunch at Jake's after a visit to Powell's book store, as they have a varied, well-priced menu - even a "blue plate special." It is in an old turn-of-the century building with a nice bar, overlooking the busy food trucks. Though service was good, this time our food was not: the shrimp and Dungeness crab salad was... More

Jake's Grill was incredible! We had a melt in your mouth steak and I had a decadent beef stroganoff paired with the server's recommended red wine. The décor is very charming with that nice 1920's feel of elegance. Wonderful service with a romantic setting!

Food was delicious and service was exceptional. Highly recommend. Crab and lobster dip was excellent as was the stuffed salmon and filet mignon. Yummy!

The food is basically the same as at Jake's Crawfish, but the atmospher is more elegant. We met a close family friend and had a booth with a street view, we went early and made a reservation. It was quiet enough for a good visit, the food was fabulous.
