Stopped here on the way back to LA from a family visit to San Diego. Found it online and received a warm welcome. It was Sunday evening so packed out but the team were working hard and we didn't have to wait too long for our booked table. Charming service in great surroundings. Best item on the menu was the...

When you are looking for a great meal overlooking the Pacific, Jake’s is the place to go. Make reservations in advance because this restaurant is popular and packed. The service is superb starting with the smiling, friendly hostesses at the front door. Derek from Hawaii was our waiter and he was magnificent. We ordered the scallops, onaka, and the seafood...

Loved Jakes. Great menu. The view was spectacular and the service was amazing. We had shrimp scampi and a nightly fish dish. Both were fantastic in taste and presentation. Ended the night with the famous Hula Pie, which did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

Jake's at Del Mar serves the best and freshest seafood. We had the Seafood Pot, with shrimp, scallops, fish and lobster in a tomato broth over a risotto cake - amazing. For desert make sure you have their specialty - Hula Pie. It's a very large serving, be sure to split it with a friend. Priced high, but not overly... More

Great food, great view, great service. This is a must come to place if you are visiting San Diego. It is a bit up the coast, but the beaches are nice in Del Mar!

Two different friends recommended Jake's, and we were glad we took their advice. We went on a Sunday and enjoyed Bloody Marys and their fancy deviled eggs at the bar. Dinner service started at 4:30, and we had a great table with a splendid view of the beach. We had a bottle of Adelshim Chardonnay with the calamari (my least... More
