    Our experience at Jake’s was amazing! The hostess was very accommodating and we got an amazing table by the window just feet from the sand. The waves crashing outside the window were mesmerizing. There was a heat lamp above the table so even with the sea breeze we were quite comfortable. The waiter was excellent and explained the menu well. He made excellent recommendations. We both loved our dishes. I had the Sumac Crusted Salmon it was prepared perfectly and was so delicious. My husband had the Mixed Seafood Pot and he raved about it. We shared the Hula Pie for dessert, it was such a treat to have it outside of a trip to Hawaii. We loved it!!

    We were seated promptly and served promptly. A bit noisy but tolerable. Had the 3-course Restaurant Week meal - too much food! Would have preferred a lighter 1st course rather than BBQ ribs and Calamari. Entrees were good but no cream, cheese or butter in the au gratin potatoes! Hula Pie is out of this world! Wines are OVERPRICED. Overall though, a good experience.

    Since it was restaurant week, I had the calamari as an appetizer, the short rib with garlic mashed potatoes and veggies, and hula pie for dessert. The food was great. The short rib usually is not on the regular menu but it should be because it was perfect! Service was very good and the staff were very friendly.

    Great on the beach ambiance as usual! Just for the beauty of eating by the sea makes this restaurant worth going to but wished the food were as exceptional. It’s good enough.

    Great deal for restaurant week! We loved the options and were so satisfied with our meals. The lemony brussles sprouts and seasonal sorbet were the stars of the show. Our waiter Todd was so personable and made our night great - two thumbs up! Gotta love that they have blue cheese olives for martinis. Can’t wait to go back!

    First time at Jake’s. Great restaurant. Our waitress, Lucy was a real gem - showed she loves her job. It was our anniversary and they recognized it with a card on the table. Lol. Food was delicious. My only disappointment was not having fresh vegetables as an option with my mahi-mahi.

    Great wait staff. However I ordered a wedge salad with steak and bacon. First steak was way over cooked. They brought me out a second one which was prepared properly about 10 minutes later. I was expecting it to be sliced like I have had at many restaurants before. Instead it was literally a steak on a separate plate. The bacon wasn’t crumbled either on the salad. It was just 1/2 pieces of bacon thrown top. Weird interpretation of this salad. My spouses meal was excellent and they have a Fantastic view and ambiance.

    You say you can't go back, I guess that to be with Jakes"s. Had a great experience there years ago, not so recently. Uninspired menu, service so so. Patio now enclosed. Went for a birthday, so noted with OpenTable. Hostess wished me a Happy Birthday. After two meals that cost $100.00 and very average not even a Happy Birthday. Next night went next door to The Poseidon. Much better menu and service. Plus patio is open and much larger then Jake's .Food was great. At the end of meal was given a free dessert for my Birthday. I also was given a Birthday discount on top of that ( that's class) The choice is yours!

    Absolutely bar none dining experience. Waves crashing outside your table and watching the passerby surfers provides for an extraordinary dining experience. The painkiller cocktail was HUGE and heavenly. Calamari and Brussels sprouts appetizers were delicious and generous portions! Steak was so tender and juicy and deliciously seasoned with black pepper around the edges and on top of a delicious teriyaki sauce Demi glaze. The famous Hula pie was the bomb as well. I enjoyed my San Diego Restaurant Week experience and will definitely be coming back again soon!

    Jake's for lunch is a very nice place. Make a reservation and be there when they open to get a window table. In late Spring, most of Summer and early Fall the windows may be open and the ocean, sand and gentle breeze are great. The food is ample, delicious, and reasonably priced considering the location. The service is good, but the place was so noisy with the dozens of conversations, ocean and beach sounds, that our server made to mistakes, likely due to miscommunication. Otherwise, a fine place for lunch and I'll go again, following my own advice, reservation and in line at opening.

    The steak was not a good cut kind of tough and the potatoes and vegetables where over salted really bad. The ceviche was not lemony enough. But the hula pie was great and our margaritas too.

    Can’t go wrong with that view! Great service. Had brunch and everything was good- eggs benedict on a biscuit not English muffin; avocado toast, pancakes. They didn’t have sugar free syrup which is good to know if diabetic. Also used to love their orange Margaritas…. Now it is a mango margarita in a can 🤷‍♀️. Didn’t try it since it did not sound tasty.
