Food is just ok, ambience is great, enjoyed patio dining with open windows. Food presentation could be improved. Would go again for the views, miss breakfast!
Only reason it’s not 5 stars across the board is due to Covid. Food and service were outstanding. If they maintain at this level when things are “normal” I’d give a 6 th star.
Love this place for every day dining and for special occasions!
Love this place. Staff is wonderful. What's not to like - GREAT food, right on the sand overlooking the ocean!
FELT THEY DID AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH SAFETY FOR GUESTS. For lunch would have liked a few more entree options, its been awhile since I was there but overall it was wonderful and our server was excellent and very friendly, helpful and professional.
Had a great waiter and good food.
Love Jakes. Table we were shown too was not 6 ft apart from the next TVs but the hostess let us choose a different table where we felt comfortable with no problem. My salad came without the chicken but the server took it back and added the chicken. My salad was very tasty when I did get it back. Always a beautiful ocean front view at James’s.
It was my birthday so the perfect setting for that..Wonderful service..
Relaxing beautiful setting with exceptional cuisine and flawless service.
Getting to the location is difficult as traffic is nasty but has spectacular views. They need more vegetarian options.
Excellent meal, excellent service.
Great service from Denis! Great food and view!! Great time. Thanks!!!!
great location. food was amazing. waiters were extremely attentive. use the valet parking. do not park in the lot across the street. lot across the street starts at $15 minimum. Valet is a value at just $6 plus tip
Accommodated window seating request. Great experience.
Rude receptionist. Wait with no water, no table, felt like I was invisible. Was treated as though I didn’t have a reservation. Not coming back soon, there are better places to celebrate a 30th anniversary.
This was our first visit to Jake’s but it won’t be our last. The food and service were excellent , but the view of the beach was amazing. Great food, service and ambiance— equals two thumbs way up.
I was really in the mood for some Hula Pie. Of course, we couldn't go just for that, so we decided on lunch. Hubby got the steak and wedge, loved it! A great value at $19 (and for a Keto diet). I got the crab cake, which comes with a great remoulade (I wish there was a bit more of it), and a nice little salad.
Their social distancing was great, and the ocean view and breeze was enjoyable and relaxing.
We'll be back soon!
Awesome views and friendly service. We very much enjoyed our Sunday Brunch here.
hadnt been to jakes i a while was pleased to see the quality friendlyness and service were as nice if not better
OMG! Love Jake's! Always a must when in Del Mar.
Excellent from the moment we walked through the door. Fast service, high quality food and friendly people.
Phenomenal calamari and fish tacos. Great chicken grain bowl. Can’t beat the view and awesome servers
Prices are way too high, the social distancing at bar seating is ruining the ability to have happy hour
In these Covidian Panic times, nothing is what it used to be (or perhaps, will be). We have been many times at Jake's and always 10% enjoyed it. Not this time. My wife's Aztec fish tasted as if it were prepared in that age; following her complaint it was substituted for a most excellent Lump Crab cake. My top sirloin ordered RARE twice first came as well-done and then medium rare. I understand that these are very tough times for dining-in places and so I don't want to tear jake's apart, but they could have done better. Hope they'll survive our Governor's quirky edicts.
Great ambiance, Great food and the waiters/waitresses were very friendly and helpful! cant wait to go back!
We had reservations for 2 and we wanted and requested a table for 2 looking at the ocean. The hostess said No and sat us at a big table in the middle of the restaurant that could of sat 6 people. We still requested a smaller table for 2 with an ocean view and the hostess said No. There was a lot of empty tables available that could of sat 2 people and the Hostess did not accommodate our request. We asked our Server to get relocated to a smaller table for 2 and our server asked the Hostess and the Hostess still said No. We felt very uncomfortable sitting there. The food was good though !!
Have been going to Jakes for over 15 years. Love the place for Lunch, Happy Hour, Dinner or Celebrations. I cannot remember a time I have been less the totally pleased and happy. Love Kimo's and Duke's as well!!
Our favorite spot for over 30 years!
