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.

Reviewed November 3, 2012

Had a great lunch at Jake's. Staff knowledgeable about the food and it was very good. No better place for an ocean view while dinning. A must if you are in the area. Great warm bread and service.

“Love the location and view. A bit pricey”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Excellent location for any meal. Great place to bring a date. Food is very good, but a bit expensive. Only pet peeve is that they don't provide free drink (soda) refills.

Parking can be a bit of a challenge at times.

“Great view of the beach”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Jake's has a line of tables at the long window along the beach which are very enjoyable. Food was good at a reasonable cost.

“Great Brunch”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We came here on a Sunday for brunch. The wait is long so be sure you have reservations. The view is nice since it is right on the beach and the libations well poured. The food was excellent and creative. Even though very full the service was excellent. Parking is very tight and you will almost surely have to use the valet service to find a space.

“Great food, great service, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. Everything was excellent. The waiter overheard that it was her birthday and brought us an amazing dessert to top off the meal...on the house. Couldn't have had a better experience!
