Description: Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.

How can you miss with a wonderful ocean view and excellent service. Even the food was tasty and fresh. Love to enjoy Del Mar from this restaurant for special occasions or just fun. Can't miss with a tasty salad and fresh fish,, Grammy Sharon

Amazing location and perfect food! If you get a chance, go about 2 hours before sunset, as you can't get in the place as the sun gets closer. This wonderful place is perched on the end of the bluffs and the entire back side is glass to allow you to soak in the ocean. I ordered the fish tacos and... More

This, like most of the TS restaurants, has a spectacular setting! The food is always superb and the atmosphere is inviting. My lunch today was no exception, from the soup, to entree, to dessert it was excellent. The reason I didn't give it a "5" was the service was not as attentive as I've come to expect!

We enjoyed a very nice Sunday evening dinner at Jake's Del Mar. The parking lot is small with valet parking, but there is ample street parking available (although with parking meters). Our table looked out on the flood-lighted beach and surf. A very nice setting, indeed. My wife had the seafood chowder, Mahi Mahi fish and a crème Brulee dessert... More

We love this place. It is literally right on the beach. You cannot beat the view. We like to eat light so always date in the Lounge. Everything we've tried was excellent. Our favorites we can recommend: the ribs are the best I've ever had. They are fall of the bone tender. The steak and wedge salad is awesome. The... More

My wife and I love Del Mar and its European feel. We had been to Jakes in the past, which experiences were at least good. We visited recently on a busy Thursday night, packed house. The restaurant is charming as are the employees. Rather than having a specific meal, we decided to share five different "courses." While everything looked appetizing... More

I live in this area but going to Jakes is special, being able to see the ocean "they light it up at night" is awesome...take a walk on the beach before or after dinner or lunch, they valet park your car..OH and the food is GREAT!
