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.

I traveled in here on a Friday night. The bar was busy, but I had great service and food. The drink I had was great too. All was ordered off of the Happy Hour Menu. The items were discounted by 3-4 dollars a piece. Prosciutto wrapped prawn and Seafood Avocado Salad were delicious. My drink, the Sunset Martini, was better than I expected and simply wonderful to look at. It looked like a beautiful sunset itself.

This is a beautiful restaurant and the food is great as well. The Hearts of Palm salad is wonderful and the Hula Pie is not to be missed. We also tried the mussels and the ahi poke roll. Everything was excellent.

Every time we come to San Diego this is a must visit. We always try new things on the menu. Overall, the food is always excellent. The view of the beach and water makes up for any shortcomings. The children's menu is workable. The wine list is doable. I suggest the salmon. Yesterday, we saw dolphins from our table.

You cannot find a better location, directly on the beach in Del Mar. The good news is that the food is just as good as the location. The seafood soup was excellent with a creamy base and a variety of seafood chunks. The pecan crusted sea bass was perfectly prepared. This is definitely a must go to when you are in the Del Mar area.
