On the beach in Del Mar with big parking. Great beach view for eating or drinking. Wide range of dishes. Good idea on week end to have reservations.

My mother and I decided to go somewhere fun for lunch and I suggested Jake's Del Mar right on the beach. We weren't disappointed. The quality of service, ambience and food made it a grand slam. The view from our table kept distracting us from the conversation, but once the lunch arrived it became the focal point. We began with... More

We love going to Jake in Del Mar. The location is beautiful, they have valet parking and the food is delicious. Ask for Daniel as your waiter...he is awesome!

My family and I had dinner at Jakes this even. I was disappointed. The service was fantastic - very attentive and friendly, without being pushy. Calamari appetizer was outstanding!...maybe the best I've ever had. I had scallops as the main entree and was stunned at how far they missed the mark. In short, for $32 I got 3 average sized...

What a great place for dinner and sunset view. The restaurant offered a wonderful menu and wine selection and fun wait staff. An impromptu volleyball game on the beach, sunset and the sound of the ocean made a perfect evening! I highly recommend Jake's.

It's hard to get a reservation during racetrack season. We secured a table and promptly got table 39; that is the code word for sitting next to the service station so we had no view of the ocean and had waiters, bus boys, and waitresses lingering near the table from time to time. Other than that, this was a very... More

There is "eating" and then there is "dining".....Jake's is a perfect venue for relaxing, enjoying the ocean waves, and having wonderfully fresh seafood prepared perfectly. Dinner, here, was a combination of excellent service (with recommendations...from Trey) and superb seafood....the scallops seared perfectly, the seafood stew with great taste (and perfect for dunking those fresh-baked rolls). Appetizers were an excellent start,... More

Can easily see why this is one of the top restaurants in San Diego. Incredible views from most of the tables. Bar scene was pretty incredible too. Lots of movers and shakers in this crowd and fun watching them "work" the bar and the room. Our meals were fantastic; especially the fish, but I have to say that the vegetarian... More

Make sure you call for reservations as the restaurant is very busy. We wanted a table by the windows looking out on the beach but none were available when we arrived. Had a nice booth that did have the ocean view. Service was very good. Out of three different entrees one was great (seafood pot), one good (scampi) and one... More

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.
