We came for my birthday and as usual had a fabulous meal! There’s seafood pot is to die for. They seem to be doing Covid right - though I was a little nervous because it’s not entirely outdoors - just all windows opened on patio for air flow . Even brought Hula pie for my birthday .
Always a wonderful experience from the moment you walk in until you regrettably have to leave. We had stuck with cocktails and small plates for this visit: calamari, grilled prawns, short ribs and candied walnut apple mixed salad. All tasted great. Can’t wait for our next visit.
Jake’s is a stunning location on the sand in Del Mar. With the OpenTable reservation we got a window seat right on the sand. The food and drinks were delicious!! AJ was an outstanding server and we thoroughly enjoyed our special occasion. Highly recommend!!!
Great venue and better food
Nice views. Excellent service. Loved the Hula Pie.
Have been coming here for roughly 20 years and must say that the quality of the food and its preparation has gone downhill. Really want to see this restaurant make it through the current pandemic but in order to do so the chef will need to step up his game. Additionally, when 3 ppl go out to enjoy a Saturday brunch and have a check that's almost $400, I would suggest waving the 2 hour time limit instead of kicking them out of their seats.
Go only if you need the view or you want to have one of their seafood dishes. Calamari was average at best, drinks were overpriced and non seafood options really plain. That said the view and the scallops were hard to beat.
Great Seafood Pot and Prime Rib Sandwich. Good Service. Friendly Host. Awesome View.
Food was great. So was the service. We sat and talked a long time and the chairs were a wee bit hard after awhile. That wouldn't keep me from going there again.
Can't beat the view!
Wonderful birthday lunch celebration! The seafood stew dish is amazing!!! Calamari appetizer great too. And they split a hula pie for us, celebrating two birthdays. Service was excellent, felt like we had special treatment. Perfection!
The service was excellent and the food was superb. It could not have been a better experience!!!
Great location...right on the beach. The patio is Covid friendly and Team Jake’s has done a beautiful job on the from side of the restaurant as we head into winter. The service, as always is friendly and efficient. While my chicken and farro salad was “good”, others in our party had various seafood dishes....excellent!
The food and service was great, Had great beach / ocean view.
Great night and friendly staff! Our favorite spot for our anniversary.
The service and food was great. The view over the ocean was incredible.
Very good service. I just wish seating would be assigned when at least 1 party arrives rather than having to wait outside.
Beautiful view! Excellent food and service!
We love going to Jake’s for Sunday Brunch! We were seated immediately at our favorite table. The seating was socially distanced and the waiter attentive. The appetizers were delicious along with the main courses. We always enjoy being next to the beach watching the waves, wild life and people! The desert never fails! Finally, the valet parking was so convenient. As you can tell, as regulars for over 30 years, we love this place!
Great food, service, cocktails and ambiance. New to the area and is my new go-to place!
We dined at Jake’s for my boyfriend’s birthday. He had been once before, but it was my first time. The views were stunning and the wait staff was friendly. The seafood we ordered was outstanding. The calamari we ordered was the best we’ve ever had. We ordered the mixed seafood pot and the surfing steak. I can’t recommend the mixed seafood pot enough. The waitress advised ordering a side order of crispy bread for dipping in the broth which made the order that much better. If you do dine at Jake’s, don’t bother ordering the steak. We’ve had much better steak, but the seafood is on a whole other level. All around a great experience!
You just can't go wrong with Jake's, on any level. ENJOY!!!
My wife and I were here from Texas... we don’t get the sun setting over the ocean so that was great! Food.. service... all so good!
Loved it. They made it very special for our anniversary! Thank you!
Came to celebrate my birthday and was placed in the back without a view. Host stand filled with staff had an attitude and gave preferred view seating to others and let view empty tables sit. Really disappointing as this was my favorite restaurant.
Overall amazing experience. They took great care of my fiancé and we will definitely be back. Made him feel super special on his bday!
We had a nice time and it is always a beautiful view at Jake’s. However, I was celebrating a birthday and had asked to be on the patio, and we were not. They gave us a nice table but it was very large for four people so a little bit awkward. The food was good, and dessert even better!
One of my little favourite places.. you won’t ever get disappointed. Best place, best food, best service. We celebrated my friend’s birthday. She was extremely happy. With this special place, special treatment.
Service and food were perfect. We felt very comfortable with the way Covid restrictions were being adhered to.
Wonderful experience. We have been wanting to go to Jake's for a long time. Finally did...for my wife's birthday. Everything was great! We will definitely be back.
Wonderful anniversary celebration with my husband. Food was delicious, service was fantastic, and everyone wished us a happy anniversary. We’ll be back!
