Very pretty restaurant with a fireplace. Food was delicious. We had crab cakes, oysters, filet mignon and the trilogy of steak, tuna and shrimp - all very good. Service was impeccable- attentive and friendly. We will be back!
We dined at Jake's on a Wednesday night. It was basically empty, and so, the extremely SLOW service was kind of a surprise. We were seated quickly, but that was where the quickness ended. We spent almost 3 hours in the restaurant, and that was...More
I chose this restaurant for it's strong history and reputation of being a GREAT place to go. My expectations were clearly to high, however they shouldn't have been. We were greeted at the door and promptly seated. No one ever asked to take our coats....More

I love Albany for it's historic feel and Jack's is an iconic symbol from when I lived in the area. Most recent visit provided a decent dinner and friendly service. But there was nothing special (other than the rich, historic feel of the space itself)...More
I’ve been visiting this place for MANY years (almost 40 years). The Best service. Great food of course. The father and now the son - just class acts ! Hope to see the next generation Cornell Hospitality Grad to carry on the great tradition.
My husband has been raving about this restaurant for years. It was my first experience. The ambiance, the wait staff (thank you, Jasleen!!) and the food surpassed my expectations. An American Classic restauarant at its best. Can’t wait for our next trip to Albany!
