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.

We ducked out for a quick dinner at Jake's without reservations on a Tuesday night, and were pleasantly surprised. The setting is spectacular, overlooking the bluffs and the ocean, really something to see. We were seated quite quickly despite the busy restaurant, and the service was excellent. We had a wonderful meal- lots of good options for the kids as well as for us, and we loved the experience. A beautiful spot with great attention to detail.

Jake's overlooks a lovely stretch of beach in Del Mar. The food is excellent, as is the service, and the prices are not unusually high for fine dining. They take reservations, but not before 5PM. Until then, the only service is at the bar. (I wonder why. They could fill the tables at 4PM.) Be sure to ask for a table next to a window when you phone for a reservation. One of the very special perks is valet parking for $5. There is never an empty parking space in this part of town, so that's important.

The location, views and ambiance are unbeatable. Service was excellent. Food was just OK. Fish was overcooked for two of our group. And, the "seafood tower" is but a morsel. Despite its name, it is laughably small. Shrimp were excellent.

Took a short drive up from La Jolla and stopped and ate here for lunch. Great views of the surfers and beach goers. The appetizer choices were wonderful. Good menu and good service. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the views!
