The service was phenomenal, server was so nice! The food was so amazing, I got the chicken BLT it was the best I highly recommend! There Buffalo Chicken Dip is also to die for! I also recommend the Watermelon Rose Sangria it was very tasty and such a nice drink for a night out with the girls. Would definitely 100% go back for dinner.

Food was good but they’re still using a limited menu which does not include my regulars. But still it was good. Drinks were good. Sat outdoors which was nice.

We were not offered the High Table option that we selected when we made the online advance appointment but rather the six-seater-lower-table and yet we were ONLY TWO.
Two high-4 Seater tables were vacant from our entry time till our departure.

So,why weren't these tables offered to us and what's the use of making advance-online-appointments if we aren't offered seats per one's selection?

After our experience I would recommend to anyone but with CAUTION.

Thank you for taking the time in reviewing us. It seems as though the table requested was available at the time of your reservation so I can understand the frustration on not being sat there. I will review this with our host staff to make sure we are doing our best to accommodate seating preferences, especially with social distancing being a top priority right now. Sincerely, Mike Boucher General Manager

The service was good. My first cocktail was not tasty, however, it was replaced by something more satisfactory immediately.

The Greek Salad was very good.

The outside patio was a bit too hot. Maybe consider the water misters.

As always, we had a great time @ J&J. It was a little different, but our server was fantastic, the food was great as always, the wine & wine glasses were nice & cold, & J&J has already figured out how to make all this craziness work beautifully. Thanks. J&J’s has been our “go to” for a long time now & looking forward to continuing that relationship......BTW, the managers are THE BEST as well!! Jimmy & Deb Auld

Due to dusting off cobwebs from re-opening or not, the SERVICE seemed excessively slow for a reduced volume of seated parties. From a CLEANLINESS perspective, although I give credit for effort, we couldn't help noticing the cleaning crew repeatedly reusing the same washcloth to sanitize the dining tables. From an AMBIANCE perspective, it was disappointing to hear inappropriate and profanity-laced music playing on the speakers and insufficient management responses to turn on their outdoor heating lamps after several requests. The FOOD itself was great, but the aforementioned kept us from enjoying the dining experience and sticking around for dessert. It was great for the family to finally get out of the house for some restaurant dining, but my opinion Jake & JOE's in Waltham can hopefully do better to set or raise the bar.

I made a reservation using Open Table at Jake N' Joes in Waltham, Ma. I specifically requested a standard table and not a high top table, as I have 3 children 4 and under. After checking in with the hostess, we were told they only had high top tables that could seat 7 people and standard tables were not available, and that a high top table was requested. The manager eventually came over and was absolutely no help at all. The only two options that were given, one of which was a high top table and the other was to split up the party to two tables, which were close to each other, which did not make sense, as we were getting together with family for dinner. I was very disappointed in the service we received and that we were forced to wait 30 mins for them to figure out where to seat us. This was especially difficult with 3 children under the age of 5.

Always enjoy Jake n Joe’s. Great halfway point for meting our friends who live north of Waltham while we live south of Waltham. And we always do a Market Basket run before meeting them.
