Lovely building, decor and food

Quintessential Portland Bar and Restaurant, specializing in Seafood. Different menu printed daily. Great ambience and wonderful Blackened Salmon Salad. Service was slow.

Party of 6 for a business dinner. Service was attentive, although the food was maybe a little slow in arriving. All the entrees were good. I had a stuffed salmon which was excellent.

We recently went here for breakfast and were seated quickly and had great service. Breakfast biscuits were fresh and warm. Our other meals were average with the food being a bit lukewarm. All in all a good experience for quick seating and service.

I had a couple of hours to waste. Starbucks, across the street and part of the Portland Target complex, looked downscale, too public, uncomfortable, like a train station waiting room. I saw Jakes Grill's welcoming awning, heard some of the inside music spilling outside. I ventured inside the lovely old building to an expansive room with a beautiful grand bar.... More

I love a restaurant that takes the time to make things special for the diner. My hubby made the reservations and told them it was our anniversary... we received a personalized menu with our name and the event. I believe every employee. Wait staff, bus boy etc., wished us happy anniversary. The food as always was goof with a very... More

But that is what the food was, just average. Two out of two meals had a problem that had to be remedied by the kitchen. For example, that is no au poivre sauce for your steak, it is chopped garlic with some peppercorns and a thickening sauce to thicken, inedible! And then it seems like the kitchen washed it off...

I just went in for breakfast while my wife was in the dentist. I was pleasantly surprised that breakfast was just a little more expensive than your average Denny's. The food and service was excellent and I would definitely come here again if I ever get downtown.

Sunday at Jake's Grill is their prime rib special night, so my husband wanted to have dinner there. Interestingly enough, he rated the meal just so-so, while I loved my salad. Our waiter was great and very attentive and our service was outstanding. Of special mention is the building itself. Jake's is located in the Sentinel Hotel, a turn of... More
