Why don't you just call the restaurant?

They MAY have a table for you but you won't know if you don't try.

Ordinarily IF you go early (before 6PM) you can often get in without a res.

This is racing season in Del Mar so I'd expect it to be quite a busy time there!

I'd prefer to have a res so I don't have to wait and not know if I'll be able to eat.

There are lots of other restaurant choices.

It depends on the kind of food you are looking for and if view is more important than food.

Other spots in La Jolla to look at for good food are Nine Ten, Tapenade, The Marine Room and The Sky Room. Really good food, but less expensive are Whisknladle, Prepkitchen, Table 926 and El Pescadore Fish Market.

Del Mar has some of the best restaurants in the county, in the same area as Jake's check out Kitchen 1540, Flavor Del Mar and Pacifica Del Mar. If the view is what you really want, look at Poseidon.

While I like Jake's, I like 910 in the Grande Colonial in La Jolla or, in Del Mar, I, as does Scott, like Pacifica Del Mar. You can see my review of Pacifica Del Mar here: tripadvisor.com/…REVIEWS. Also: in the same plaza (very nice shoipping as well) is Il Fornaio which (though a chain, that one has a very nice outdoor patio dining area and I've alwyas enjoyed it. Also, if you are going to be staying in the Del Mar area Pacifica Del Mar has a sister location (Pacifica Breze Cafe)outside that serves a very nice breakfast. (They do allow dogs outside if that means anything to you.)

BTW, if you like arts and eclectic shopping, just north of Del Mar is Solana Beach and a shopping area called Cedros Avenue with a number of restaurants among the stores. You might enjoy ZincCafe & Market. We are lucky enough to have one in Newport Beach as well as Laguna Beach. www.zinccafe.com
