We ate at Jake's last night, which was disastrous. Your comments stated it was Italian, but even though it has a couple of Italian dishes, it's mostly eclectic. Wine by the glass was reasonably priced, and my wife and I ordered soups as our ?appetizers?, and she ordered her main course with the wine and soup request. I told the waiter - in Spanish - to give me 5 more minutes, which turned out he came back after we ate the soup and she was served her main course. Eventually I was served the Zarzuela de Mariscos, delicious, but she had to send hers back to keep warm until I got mine. At these prices, they should have cooked hers over. We ordered mousse, which turned out to be a week old, and had the consistency of fudge. I complained to the owner, Jake, who made a looney comment that at first he ?thought I must be drunk? since I was complaining about a waiter who has been with him the longest. ??
I think Jake should visit Tamarindos or Camille, or Jean Francois, who are priced about the same, but put Jake's to absolute shame.
