Our server, Wesley has been here 14 years. It showed. Absolutely flawless service. Stuffed salmon was cooked, served and seasoned to perfection. Don't know why we waited so long to come here!

It's been a few years since we were here but Jakes is always On our list. Blueberry lemon drop martini to start, is the tradition for us. Make a reservation! They are always packed. Stuffed halibut and the salmon were amazing.

Jake's is excellent! We had crab cakes for an appetizer and I had the halibut special for dinner. It was a perfect meal with excellent service. The crab cakes were possibly the best I've ever had!

Hi Kim I parked nearby but didn't validate parking so I'm not sure but I would definitely book as it is often packed so you can ask them about parking when you book Sandy

Yes, a McCormick and Schmicks gift card would work there. If you happen to have a Jake's gift card, that too would work obviously.

There was plenty of street parking. Taking a taxi is another option. We actually walked from our hotel. Walking was the better option since their portions were wonderful.
