Amazing restaurant. Ones you go you will want to come back every time. Great drinks and plates. Superb ocean view and ambience. A most in Del Mar and one of the best places for brunch and dinner in Southern California.
We got there early and had a drink at the bar, and the We got a sunset table in the corner it was very nice. We come every year.
Service was great. View was amazing! Atmosphere very nice
Jake's has been one of my favorite restaurants since I moved to
San Diego 20 years ago. I love the oceanfront view, the comfortable
ambiance, casual but classy. The food and the service have always
View was spectacular with ambience to match. Food was tasty and serviced at a pace that promoted a casual lunch. Plenty of time to visit. A very relaxing experience.
Just slightly underwhelming. Long wait for our table (they were obviously WAY overbooked). Packed and noisy from wall to wall. Had a lovely table overlooking the beach, but by the time we were seated, the sun had gone down completely. Service was relatively efficient but you could tell the guy had too many tables. The food was tasty enough but nothing really spectacular.
All in all, it was... meh. Would have been fine for a normal dinner, but it was my mom's birthday. We wanted to enjoy something really special.
We love this restaurant! It has outstanding food, the service is always great, the view of the ocean and the beach is beyond belief, no matter the season. I dine here every 2 or 3 months and I'm never disappointed. The only downside is that it can get noisy, so it definitely is not someplace to go for a quiet meal. Other than that...5 stars!
Birthday celebration with friends. Wonderful view; good food, great service. Jerardo was our server and he was excellent. Great piece of Hula pie for birthday.
Wonderful as always. Our server was JT (2 intials but not sure if I am right) He was very attentive and friendly.
Jake's is a find; a great waterfront location, excellent service, interesting and innovative meals, happy attitude.
Go to Jakes once a month. Normally great service and great food. Our server might have been having a bad day as she couldn’t remember anything. She seemed to be overwhelmed as it was very busy. The salads were subpar but the meals were excellent.
Celebrated our daughter’s 5th birthday here! We love the Hula Pie!
The only change I would like is for the brunch menu to include some foods that would fit into the weight watcher's diet program. Everything had cream or sauces or dressings and it would have been nice to have a few choices that had fruit, veggie omelets with no sauce on top, or simple scrambled eggs.
Loved this place! We were visiting SD for the weekend from Sacramento! If I lived in San Diego area, I would eat at Jake's every Sunday brunch! The scenery, staff, service and food were all excellent!! Thank you! I am so glad that Marriott's in Del Mar recommended your place!! I have already recommended Jake's!
Wow, the view from this place is incredible! There’s tons of parking around and Sunday morning brunch is delicious. Everyone that works there is super friendly. Many stopped at our table to talk to our twin toddlers. We will be back!
Great service as always. Outstanding food. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Jake’s never disappoints. Excellent food, great service. Reasonably priced.
Didn’t care for the hostess at all. We had a 5:45 reservation and we checked in a little early. She said she couldn’t seat us yet. Then she never called our name. The tables all filled up so we went to the desk to check. She said she forgot, & didn’t know where we were. We we sitting at the high table right behind her, couldn’t have been too hard.
It’s just okay!
This was my first time at Jake's and I will definitely be returning. My next trip may need to be for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal choices along with the 3 different appetizers we ordered. We didn't have any complaints.
Been to Jakes many times, and always a treat. The direct view of the Del Mar beach and ocean adds to the ambiance, and the food is consistently good. Sometimes the service has been iffy, but lately we've been very happy all around.
Valet parking is tight, but get there early and no problem. Otherwise, there is parking not far away on the street, although it is metered.
Interesting menu, always a treat!
Jake's always delivers exceptional service; great ambience; delicious menu selections and wonderful setting. Jake's never disappoints!
For 3 years I have eaten here 75 times or more a year while in town in business, usually at the bar but at a table with friends. I have never had a bad meal or service. This is my all time favorite restaurant and I travel a LOT. I have met fascinating people at the bar from all over the country. Never a dull evening!
Great , fun place! All the wait staff was friendly, caring and attentive!’
Food was good!
Very nice staff and food
Jake's is amazing! This was my second time. Wow, my steak was good. Calamari app was great too. Must be one of the best restaurants in San Diego.
Our recent Sunday girls' birthday celebration at Jake's was fun and delicious! The restaurant and bar were very crowded, but we had no problem getting a pre-lunch drink before being seated. We were given a corner table that had a great ocean view and we felt somewhat set apart from the crowd which was great. Despite how busy it was, service was good, food was great and the birthday girl was treated to a complimentary Hula Pie dessert that was fabulous. Only downside to Jake's is parking. Valet seemed backed up because there were so many people arriving. We took Uber so had no problems. Jake's has been and will continue to be our go to place!!
Very nice, very good
Took my family from out of town here for brunch. Perfect view of the beach, great food, excellent service. They want to go back next weekend!
Sunday Brunch Celebrating my Wife’s Birthday.....We has a Wonderful Time...The Food, Ambiance and Staff were Great. I would highly recommend Jake’s for Special Occasions.
One of our favorite restaurants. Always a wonderful experience.
We had a terrific time at Jake's for dinner on a Saturday night. Glad we had reservations as they were very busy. Food was excellent, as was the service. We stayed a long time to visit with friends and never had anyone try to get us to leave. Valet parking is a bargain at $6, cheaper than the meters across the street, so don't skip that thinking you'll save money. The only slightly negative thing was that it did get very loud by the time we left, but they are busy and popular so what are you going to do?
Wonderful dinner with the family welcoming one of our sons back from college at Penn State. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, wonderful food, and great service. Our table ordered Mahi-mahi off of the menu, along with salmon, and shrimp ravioli, all which were prepared with impeccable flavor and style. The Hula pie was special, I only wish I could work my spoon as fast as my two sons!
The best food I've ever had!! Amazing location with waterfront ocean view. Next time we are in San Diego we will for sure be going back
What a great view. The service was amazing and the Hula pie was to die for. It's HUGE
Hostesses happy & accommodating. Waiter gave great service & helpful. Sunset was beautiful. Menu had a lot of choices & dinner was delicious!
We had a later lunch (at 1:30) on a Friday. Valet was easy, we got there a bit early so we had a drink in the bar and the hostess let us know that once the window tables cleared she would call us. Better than that, she came over to the bar and grabbed us. Server Danielle was amazing, informed and friendly. The food was great, (we had the salmon and the ceasar salad with seared albacore tuna). It was a bluebird day so the view of the ocean was unbeatable. We would return in a heartbeat!
Jakes is a great spot to dine. It has a wonderful view with a thoughtful staff and tasty food.
Always great food.
Great service and food. Positively surprised by the anniversary card and the free desert. Thanks a lot, a very nice gesture indeed!
