We went to Jake's for lunch on a recent trip to Palm Springs. We sat outside as we had my son's dog Dash along but it was a lovely day and not too much traffic on the street. Excellent menu had lots of choices and I really enjoyed my turkey sandwich special. We would certainly go back on our next... More

We enjoyed a lunch here, try the BLTA it is fantastic, and came back for a dinner. We both had 3 excellent courses from the fixed price menu. Book early it gets busy, that is probably the only negative the seating is close.

Good food and excellent service. Small dining room and a little noisy combined with above average prices.

Hands down, Jake's made the best BLT with avocado I have ever had. It's listed as something like the Turkey BLTA on but I had them leave the turkey off and it was fantastic. On the other hand, the tomato basil soup I had was just OK - I felt like it needed a little seasoning. My partner had the... More

I had crepes with fresh fruit and syrup and my companion had eggs and bacon and toast. It was great service and fast and done perfectly including the eggs! The environment was nice and comfortable. I will try dinner another time.

Jakes is wedged to the side of a historic building in downtown Palm Springs. The food is good (thus the above average rating) but seating outside is pretty cramped.... Prices are ummm, on par with Palm Springs.. Go try it and let me know what you think....

We celebrated my girlfriend's parents 50th wedding anniversary here tonight! I've been to Jake's a few times before, and they've always exceeded my expectations. The food was excellent. The service top notch. They served our party of 12 with no problems whatsoever. Thanks to everyone at Jake's for making their special night spectacular!

Stopped in while walking by. Had a lobster tempura appetizer and order the filet as the main course. Both were perfect. The steak was better than many steakhouses. The waiter was super friendly and helpful. A wonderful experience.

Went to Jake's and sat outdoors in the patio. Great ambience. Server was excellent. My wife and sister-in-law raved about the lobster appetizer that they shared. Jake's wedge salad was very good. Three out of the four meals were excellent, especially the rack of lamb, which we highly recommmend. nice basic wine list, too. All in all, a lovely evening... More

We did not even make it to a drink order! We had a reservation for 6.pm. Early but that is what we could get on 2 days notice for a Thursday night. There were 4 of us. We where seated next to the bar outside on a tiny two top next to an impeding plant. I requested to be moved... More

unfortunately we cannot control weather and when unexpected wind events happen we do the best we can. if we could have moved you inside we would have. the empty tables were for later reservations at 6:30, 7 and 7:15. we only have one size table, it is the same for all the four tops in the restaurant. If we could... More
