We have been several times to Jakes Grill and always enjoyed the food so when we were thinking of a place to celebrate Christmas Eve, we thought of and made reservations there. We were extremely disappointed with the food - in fact, each of our party of five felt the same way. The lobster bisque had no taste and was... More

We were here as part of a tour group. The dinner was good but the food and service levels would not justify the prices charged here if we had ordered off the normal menu.

I've visited Jake's multiple times while in Portland and was never disappointed. The atmosphere is fabulous and the bar has a fun ambience. Their French onion soup is amazing and a great addition to any meal. At my last visit for brunch, I ordered the crab eggs benedict which was fantastic: English muffin, crab, spinach, and topped with poached eggs... More

Didn't know this was part of the Landry's chain until we sat down. It's in an old Governor Hotel, which was a fabulous atmosphere. The Grand hotel atmosphere can't be beat; You sit admiring the details of what was. The waiter was very pleasant and quick. He took our drink orders and the drinks were made perfectly. I had Meatloaf... More

The atmosphere of the Governor Hotel takes you back to a classic time...the details of the decor remind you of the era when this was built. From the beautifully tiled floor to the ornate elevator to the breathtaking wooden bar with the dramatic mirror backdrop and the mounted pheasant, bison, and deer, this reminds you this place served the wealthy...

We stopped at Jake's after a great couple hours at Powell's Bookstore. We ate in the bar and the food and service were excellent. Table at the window was nice although a little chilly for us Atlantans. We could have moved but liked this spot...atmosphere is great so not a bad table in the place. My hubby had the French...

We come back here everytime we're in town. The fish is so delicious. Amazing salmon amd trout. The mac and cheese is probably top three I've ever had. Tasty drinks. And to top it off, the location is gorgeous! Old money opulence!

Located in the beautiful Governor Hotel, this sister-eatery of Jake's Seafood in the city of Portland, offers breakfast in a historic location of mahogany and marble. Great service, clean surroundings and the restaurant provides good value for good food. Breakfast Trio, $11.99. Eggs over-easy, fried potatoes, and home-made muffins. Latte was $5.00. Continental Breakfast, $8.00, with a medley of baked... More

The food is good, service outstanding and it's inside an historic building in Portland, Oregon. The architecture is interesting and the interior appointments (recently restored) are a treat to see but none of it would be worthwhile if the food and service were not good - fortunately both are excellent. Close to public transportation.
