“Great place”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The service and food selection was wonderful as always. Killer desserts, too! When in the area, we always try to have a dinner at Jakes at least twice.

“Sweet surprise”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We accidentally parked outside Jakes and decided to venture in. Aside from the condescending maitre d, the experience was superb. You must try the coconut cake - heavenly. We had the stuffed shrimp and the swordfish - both cooked to perfection. It was a lovely evening under the stars.

“Good Dinner Spot”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Jake's for both breakfast and dinner. Both were good but dinner was better. I don't know I I would come back for breakfast/brunch. The food portions were too small and just not my cup of tea. Dinner, however, is great. The food and desserts are great.

“Poor atmosphere but pricy anyway”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Party of 4 for Valentine's Day. Restaurant appears to be a converted Deli with dirty looking tile floor. Tabels were white, 30 inches to a side, with white plastic lawn type chairs. The menu must have been special for Valenbtine's Day as it was not to same as what appears on the web site. In fairness, pricing was the same as what is listed on the site. Service was prompt and the food was very good, but did not overcome the lack of atmosphere commensurate with the pricing. There are numerous restaurants in the area and my personal suggestion would be to try one of them,

“Not for us”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We never did eat here. We decided to leave, after being seated, because of the indifferent and dismissive response from one of the staff (the owner?). There are several great restaurants in Palm Springs. No need to patronize one that doesn't seem to want your business.
