Jake's will satisfy your steak craving without having to go to midtown Manhattan!

I had lunch at Jake's this past week. The restaurant is located on Broadway, across the street from Van Cortlandt Park in the North Riverdale section of the Bronx (a few steps from the last stop on the #1/9 trains (242nd St). The decor is polished old world steakhouse (wood and brass) and large... read more

The filet mignon at Jake's might be the best in the Bronx. So juicy and topped with onions and high quality blue cheese.

This restaurant seems like a popular spot for birthdays! I was here for a relative's birthday, and everyone had a nice time. the service was exceptional. My appetizer was the calamari, which was great. Several of us shared plates of baby back ribs, so those were clearly a hit!

We went for a Saturday afternoon lunch. We were promptly seated by the bar area, but the best location to dine is on the second floor near the window overlooking the park. They have an excellent selection of beer and liquor and an elegant bar. The chicken wing appetizer was meaty, yet crispy and cooked to perfection. The hamburgers and... More

We had a private party for my Dad's 90th birthday and they were just great with the chaos that came with having 6 little kids running around and adults arriving at different times. The food was great (steak, salmon were the ones I tried) with garlic mashed potato and vegetable sides. The desserts were served family style and were also... More

I have been here 3 times with the last 2 visits being on Valentines day and this past weekend 3/21/15. Jake's has 3 different levels of tables set with the main bar being on the first floor. This restaurant in... More

I was taken there for my Bday, had steak and crab meat. Had the steak medium well, the crab meat with the steak was very good. My bacon appetizer was real good and thick. We had the angry sangria, but it was ok.

Always dependable for excellent steak and service. Free valet parking makes Jake's stand out among NYC restaurants. You cannot go wrong.

Came to dinner with a colleague. This is a two story restaurant. We sat on the first floor in a classic wood booth. The restaurant is cozy and it was fairly quiet. I enjoy a quiet restaurant to make conversation comfortable. Our server was very helpful. We had the salad with greens and goat cheese. It was served with balsamic... More
