We loved the ambiance of this place. Originally, we wanted to be seated at the only available table left on the street but when the hostess encouraged us to look at the indoor terrace which is still outdoors we were glad that we settled on this. We had a fabulous table and really the ambiance at this place was one... More

One of the most charming restaurants in Palm Springs, they also serve delicious food with gracious service. The menu is varied with something for everyone's taste. Rack of lamb, various fish preparations, steaks. And then there are the deserts! There is a beautiful outdoor courtyard and indoor seating, too. You won't go wrong with Jake's. But don't tell anyone.

We were referred to Jake's by our Resort-they preferred it over Copley's (and we agree). The menu is exciting-the food and presentation were "over-the-top". Shaun, our server, was excellent. The service was very slow, but it was crowded. Only real complaint is that it is very crowded with small tables. We felt "stuffed" into the table we were at. This... More

Food and service fine, but do not...I repeat, do not do anything that requires interacting with the manager. At the end of our meal, our group of three requested separate checks, as our totals were very unequal. We were told Jake's did not offer that service and we should figure our own totals and tell our server, which we did.... More

Am writing this review because this is to be helpful for other travelers, not to bash an establishment because I know the food is very good having eaten there before and with the recommendations of local people that eat there often. I ticked off the center circle ( average) so as not to skew any statistics for poor to excellent.... More

I like : the food, particularly the pad Thai , very good. Cocktails very good, atmosphere good. Only bad thing I can say is they have the awful spray coming down on you when it is hot. Also the tables are way too small for 4 people, it is a small place though. These are not big deals as the... More

Jakes has a good busy atmosphere and is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike. It's food is very good American and it is a good value for money place. There were quite a few families and groups there as well. Check it out

Jake's is about a lot more than citrus cake, to be sure, but it deserves a place on everyone's bucket list. The restaurant is casual but somehow special, perhaps because the first thing one sees upon entry is a lovely patio. The staff is excellent, very knowledgeable about the varied ang eclectic menu, which has numerous vegetarian options. They are... More

Whenever we head into Palm Springs we make sure to stop by this place on our way in or out. It helps to make a reservation ahead of time! The food and service here is great! It's a small space but every seat in the place is a good one (tons of outdoor seating too). Do get the Sangria and... More

My favourite place for lunch on N Pal Canyon. Went there for lunch quite a few times since 2013 and I must say it beats the others. It does not try too hard and the garden like terrace is great.
