On our way home to Poughkeepsie from NYC and seeing a Broadway show, we searched for a place close to the Henry Hudson Pkwy ..... Did we find a gem? You bet! Easy to get to. Slightly more difficult to get back on HHP due to the one way street/no left turn signs...but not bad.

The meal was great. The ambience was relaxing. The waitstaff was attentive but not annoying. Jake's Filet Mignon was one if the best I've ever had.....had a Bleu Cheese crumble on top with drizzled onions....the sauce was rich NAND complimented the steak perfectly.....honestly though the steak was so good, no sauce was needed. Side order of sautéed spinach was perfectly cooked - not too garlicky but just enough....came in a cast iron serving dish to keep it warm - nice touch. Mashed potatoes were heavenly.....light and creamy. They came in a covered bowl to keep them warm. Both sides were enough for two. Wines served from individual carafes to ensure you get your money's worth - exactly measured....downside to this is you only get what you pay for (not a little extra when the bartender pours too much)......great selection and perfectly temped! Our daughter (age 9) had the chicken fingers - not fingers at all.....beautifully pounded cutlet in light bread crumb - yum! No room for dessert. )= Next time!

Thank Poughkeepsie

The food here is fabulous! I had a Blue Cheese Stuffed Filet Mignon that was out of this world! Great spot to go to dinner after a yankee game! Its in a nicer area of the Bronx, so no need to worry if your driving there! Loved it!

Come on Jakes has to rate better than 19. It has the best steak ever. The sides are all excellent also. It is a nice little restaurants and the staff is very friendly. I rated service average because although the staff are very friendly they are busy and you may have to wait a few minutes for water top up or little things like that but to me is not a deal breaker because the food is so good. Peter Lugers steak does not even come close to Jakes!!

Jake's is a beautiful restaurant in the northwest Bronx, reachable by subway since it's a few short blocks north of the last stop on the #1 train. There is also valet service if you care to drive there.

The restaurant faces beautiful Van Cortlandt Park, which is a spectacular sight at any time of year from the window seats upstairs. The food is prepared to perfection and the service is impeccable. There is a bar and food service downstairs, so if it's a more casual evening you want, Jake's is prepared to help.

But upstairs is the place for a celebration, whether for two or for a large party. The petit filet served a la Jake is unbeatable, the frizzled fries exceptional, and garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach are just some sides that can be shared by two. And even though it's a steakhouse, the preparation of any fish dish is just as excellent.

Anybody who wants to quote "The Bronx, No Thonx" should come up and enjoy this classy restaurant.

The restaurant was very small, but the dining experience was amazing. The food was excellent, the restaurant was immaculate and the wait staff superb. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a nice dinner with a loved one.
