The food is always great. We had a reservation and were a little early and wanted to grab a drink and sit at the bar and they said that was reserved for walk-ins only so we weren't allowed to sit at the bar. Kinda strange. That being said the food was great, our waiter John did a great job, and the sunset view was spectacular.
Nice food, great service. Very enjoyable, pretty place with beautiful view of the sunset.
Food was great. View was beautiful. Service a bit slow but worth the wait. Will definitely go back
Great food and service as always and you can’t beat the view of the pacific!
Great food, service and location! Will be back
Best brunch I have had in years. Old school beach vibe, large portions, super fresh seafood chunks of crab, great shrimp, fresh local fish…. Amazing cocktails and unmatched service…. OUT GO TO PLACE
Enjoyed our experience from start to finish.
They knew it was our anniversary and we got to sit by the windows. Nice!
Alicia was wonderful. We will always request her as our server, from now on.
The food here is always very good, love this place and can highly recommend it both for special occasions and as a Del Mar neighborhood gem. Thank you.
Great food. Great drinks. Great service. Can’t beat the view. We’ll be back.
Cannot beat the view or service. Great special occasion resturanf.
Jakes is such a pretty place with an amazing view of the Pacific and the setting Sun! Food was awesome and our server was super knowledgeable! We love this place and will be back soon!
The staff were sweet to recognize the occasion- our anniversary. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset over a delicious meal and bottle of wine. We were relaxed and had a great time.
Food and service were good, but we were tucked inside in the back with a minimal view. We booked Jake's to be on the water and were disappointed not to get a seat anywhere near it, but in dark corner.
Birthday lunch made special by every staff member we interacted with. Service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed each dish. A sunny day with a spectacular ocean view only added to our enjoyment.
Great dining experience. Food and service was outstanding!
Awesome! Thank you 😊
Loved this place and the service was amazing. Loved that you can get such a cool yet nice beachy vibe with 5 star food!
Love the view. The staff are friendly and fast. Good was good but not great. Could have been as it was late for lunch and on the verge of restaurant switching to dinner service.
Great place for that special night out. Food is always great.
Great service, delicious food, beautiful view
Great food; Great service.
The menu has changed a lot since pre Covid. A lot of our favorites are missing, and the portions seemed small. Noise levels were extremely high, and we could barely converse with each other....
The cocktails were excellent.
Maggie our server was great! Very friendly & professional as were all the staff. We love the TS restaurants for both the amazing food & the well trained staff. Great job to all those responsible for maintaining the high level of service even through these difficult times!
It was great to sit and watch the ocean. Our server was lovely and gave us suggestions for the next day as we were visiting and had not been to the area. Food was delicious!
The staff was amazing!!
Great service, better food, remarkable experience.
Thank you for making my 70th Birthday so special!
I have been there before and I will be back again
Everything about this restaurant is always perfect! In town for an event and I took my clients and everyone loved it. Food is always amazing, drinks are incredible and the view is amazing.
Jake's is an institution in Del Mar. The ambience is stellar - beach front. The food is consistently excellent. Just stay away during racing season.
Our server Dennis, was the best part of what was otherwise a forgettable meal. Bread was almost inedible. Entrees were OK but very small portions for the price
The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. This is always a great place to eat. Make sure to get reservations as this restaurant is always busy.
Service was great, food was good but very limited menu. Bit too noisy for a romantic dinner. Overall we enjoyed our dinner.
Every year for six years we have come to Jake's Del Mar on the anniversary of our first date here. The food is always excellent and what better view than the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
The staff welcomes us with anniversary greetings and we are treated to a luscious Hula Pie, gratis!
We would highly recommend Jake's Del Mar---we will keep coming back!
Outstanding food service and ambiance. Not a quiet place but that’s ok as it makes it suitable for children. Excellent Mac and cheese. Cucumber spicy margarita on point. As were fish tacos and Poke.
We love Jakes!! It is always delish!! It was my friend’s birthday and she got a free dessert!!! Exceptional service!! Always a favorite place of ours! Bring the happy hour back when you can!!
My wife & I enjoyed lunch at Jake's. We shared a lettuce wedge and split a very good hamburger with fries. Add glasses of Chardonnay. We had a window seat overlooking the beach and ocean. It doesn't get better! Here are a few tips... the restaurant opens at noon. Make a reservation and arrive 20 to 30 minutes early to have a chance at a window seat overlooking the beach and ocean beyond. Valet parking is available for a fee. I recommend Jakes for a pleasant meal experience.
Best ambiance, food, service! Been visiting San Diego for 50 years and this is my number 1 recommendation. Don’t leave San Diego with out dining and visiting here.
Fantastic food, service and location
