Jake's Del Mar
We love Jakes’s. Food, view and service were great. Our server had some issues with our check but eventually, it was correct and we left pleased, as usual.
Beautiful settings, seaview, great seafood and vegetarian dishes
The location could not be better, the drinks always good, valet great, service staff awesome, food negative. Each person at our table agreed, come here for the location and view. Food always disappoints.
Fantastic food, great view and the waitstaff was excellent
Jake’s never disappoints! The food is always excellent and the staff is always awesome. We’ve been going there for almost 20 years!
Great spot right on the Pacific. Good food and service. Bit noisy but still an excellent experience.
This was the perfect place to celebrate my wife’s birthday. From the moment we walked in with the greeter who when asked if we could have table facing the ocean who said “No Problem!” To our table which had a Happy Birthday Card signed by the staff to everyone who waited on ask asking who’s birthday it was. Making my wife feel special and our food was perfection in every way. Our server even brought my wife out a piece of ice cream cake with a candle. Could not have asked for a more perfect evening. Thank you Jake’s!!! Outstanding job!!!
fantastic healthy food.
great views and service.
not to be missed.
Excellent food, great service, and scenery that proves that San Diego is the best place to live, in CA, or anywhere!
The food, service, and ambiance were fantastic! Great to enjoy brunch with friends while taking in the beauty of the Pacific Ocean! I cannot recommend it more highly!
Jake's was probably one of the very best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at. The fish was incredibly fresh and the lobster tail was outstanding. We had deep fried calamari as an appetizer and it was absolutely delicious. Nice choice of wine and beer and the service was five star. We had a view of the crashing waves only a few feet away from our table. Will be back for sure!
Service was excellent! The hostess and waitress were extremely friendly and pleasant to talk to. The food was amazing as well. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Good but very noisy.
Amazing as always!
Really, enjoyed dinner. I have been there 4 times. Everyone raves about the ice cream pie. Very sweet if thats your thing. I really liked the seafood stew with the potato cake in the middle. OMG, was it a great piece of comfort food heaven. Give it a try.
Enjoyed lunch on the enclosed patio with views of the beach and ocean. Service was good and food was great. Recommend just for the views.
Great food and service
I really enjoy Jake's, and it's a good place to bring clients because the location and food are so good. It does get a little noisy, though, and so it can be difficult to hear my guests at times. In general the prices seem to be fair for quality of food and service, I've always been pleased with the food.
Delicious food from the calamari at the start to the hula pie as dessert. We had a very nice table with ocean and beach view. Perfected cooked and seasoned fish tacos were the highlight of my meal. We really enjoy the friendly wonderful service - always a great experience. We did miss the delicious sourdough bread though.
I would recommend Jake’s since the shortcomings were slight. We had the Caesar salad, fried calamari appetizer, both excellent. Dinner we had the beef short ribs, really tasty but overly fatty. My husband had the scallops, perfectly done. The place was packed at 5:30, many like us for the gorgeous sunset that didn’t disappoint. After all, Jake’s is right on the beach! Shortcomings? All the servers acted like we were lucky to be there for dinner and let’s hurry up. Lots of rushing around so not relaxing for the diners. Oh, and another $6.00 to park? We did know it was as extra unless we parked across a busy street. Since I’m handicapped we didn’t feel it was an option.
Out of town business associate was impressed with the beautiful view, calamari and swordfish!
The noise level was extremely loud. Waitress was very busy and didn’t check on us but only a couple of times. Drinks went empty. My file mignon was over cook (well done instead of medium). By the time the waitress finally came by to ask how our food was, the rest of my party was finished eating and I had not touched my steak. She offered to have it remade but it was pointless to make everyone else wait for me to get my food (again) plus eat it. Once we were all ready for the bill, we waited another 18 minutes for the waitress to come by again to ask for the check. Thankfully my order was not charged on the tab but I really would have liked to eat dinner instead of grabbing food on the way home after paying $150 for my family to eat. I doubt I will come here again. Thank you for ruining my mother’s 66th birthday dinner.
Great restaurant and great food. Seaside venue makes this restaurant lovely.
Overall fairly good accept we received our meals just warm. Looked like they had been sitting a while before served.
Noisy, steak wasn't done but was replaced, water spilled and slow cleanup. Food otherwise excellent and service otherwise very friendly after we got wait staff attention.
We loved the location and the views; the staff was superior. The food was very good, but not very original and the menu was limited. Having said that, if you feel like being on vacation, if you feel like being in Hawaii this is the place. They have mai tais and cool breezes. Jake's is a lovely spot.
Server was great, but we waited a long time for our food, and others around us were having a similar experience
Jakes has a good ocean view and good service. The prices are commensurate with the food, which is delicious. The real problem is the deafening noise level at dinner. I could not hear what my guest was saying even though she was seated directly next to me. I would not bring a guest here on a Friday or Saturday evening if you expect to have a conversation.
Great place. However, they messed up our reservation time and we didn’t get a table until 15-20 minutes past. That was disappointing.
A long time favorite of ours for special occasions. Food was outstanding especially the Ahi, waiter very attentive. Great view of the sunset over the ocean. A bit noisy if that's a concern. Otherwise, Jakes has never let us down and this was no exception.
Good times great views
I have been going here for many years but this visit was disappointing. I had the seafood salad which had very little seafood and nonexistent dressing. The chowder was bland. The service was great and the view worth the hour drive.
We brought friends who live in Palm Springs, so we knew they would enjoy eating near the water. We had an excellent table and the staff gladly closed one of the windows so the cool air would not blow on us. The whole experience was excellent.
Fantastic view and food. Outstanding and attentive service!
Usually love Jake's but the last few visits have been a disappointment. This time, the service was so atrocious it was embarrassing... the food was not tasty to me, either. My salad was drowned in dressing, the potatoes overcooked. :(
They pay no attention to regular clients as to seating location or promptness.
This always the same. Will not return!
We had a great evening watching the sun set and enjoying good food. Overall a nice dinner. The waiter could turn down the acting a notch but he was efficient and, if anything, the pace of the dinner was too fast. So. Cal and not Europe, of course.
Jake’s is always a great place to dine. I come to Jakes frequently with family and friends. I use Open Table to make a reservation. The view of course is fabulous. The staff is always pleasant and the food is excellent.
Front desk very ‘Rule Bound”...Waitress & location terrific. Food- fine.
