The food was ok, the building was beautiful...but our waiter was a piece of crap. He was nice until my fiance ordered a salad and bowl of soup for her entree. We instantly became lower class citizens because we weren't spending as much as the other people he was serving. I never had my water refilled once, he didn't offer to box up my leftover food, and he frequently rolled his eyes at our requests such as splitting our bill with the other couple we came with. When we first arrived at the restaurant, we were asked by the manager if we'd be willing to change tables so they could accomodate a large group. He brought us out an appetizer for being willing to move. At the end of the evening, our waiter still charged us for this, however. I suppose that it is needless to say that our waiter got the tip we was expecting from such a poor group of college kids. The manager actually called us later and apologized for our bad experience. Overall, I think our experience would have been great if it hadn't been for the horrible waitservice.

Someone clear the dust off of this place. It's in serious need of a modernization! The food is 80s era "fancy" dining with crazy high prices for what you're eating. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.

Much like other old, famous Portland institutions, Jakes is riding on the coat-tails of it's own former glory. The food was pretty good, the service was pretty good and everything cost WAY too much. It was certainly edible, but somehow, it should have been more. I'd rather go somewhere else, frankly.

For the kind of reputation this place had I was a little concerned that I might be out of my element, and while scanning the menu I felt a little apprehensive. Definitely a place for people who enjoy fish. I settled on the clam chowder and was surprised to find it was a great price AND a great meal. (Nice choice too, for some one watching their pocket book.)
