Daniel is a great asset to your brand. My wife and I, as well as our guest, thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
A very enjoyable lunch with friends in a beautiful setting
We had an amazing waiter, Christian- he treated us to dessert as we have just gotten engaged! The food was amazing and the vibes were chic.
We were just visiting the Del Mar area and chose this restaurant out of the blue; we were surprised to see how crowded it got, and in the middle of the week; glad we made reservations. They had to stop their valet parking ($6)which was a bummer, because we then had to pay twice as much in the public parking. I think people come here partly to enjoy the sunset from the large windows facing the beautiful beach and for the lively bar scene.
We scored one of those windows don't know how, but we sure enjoyed it, along with the food; the ahi tuna was excellent, though a little more dipping sauce would have been even better, and the mixed seafood pot contained a generous serving of lobster. The salad was very good; a little less dressing would have been even better.
All in all, we recommend it, crowded and noisy, but worth it.
Very small portions for the price
Our dinner was excellent, the service was divine and the view was spectacular. The food was amazing so it was a great night overall. They accommodated my allergies and i was very grateful. We put it was a birthday on Open Table which apparently they can’t see. So...make sure if it is your birthday you say something to them in person.
Our party of four each had a different selection, and all were delicious. We also celebrated a birthday, which they made special.
And, service was excellent.
Restaurant set right on the beach with beautiful views during brunch. Vibrant atmosphere, excellent waitstaff, and contemporary menu. A good time is guaranteed for all.
lobster for three of us came cold and not very tasty
Perfect evening with sunset view and great food and service!
It was our first time there and we'll be back! From the moment we checked in it was awesome!
Our waiter Daniel was fantastic; super friendly, funny, efficient! The food was excellent as were the cocktails; I had the grapefruit martini and my husband had the Man Tai.
The view was phenomenal as mother nature put on a show at sunset!
At the end of our experience, Daniel brought out the complimentary Hula Pie for our anniversary and it was soooo good! The card and seashell were such a nice touch as well!!
Thank you to the Jake's team for making our 14th anniversary such a special one!!
We had our wedding reception at Jake’s almost 26 years ago. We came back on a trip to visit family, and it was my wife’s birthday. She was greeted with a birthday card from the “Jake’s crew,” and we enjoyed a delicious meal capped off by a free piece of Hula Pie (mmmmm!). Jake’s is probably our favorite restaurant in the world!
The service and food were both wonderful.
The restaurant was able to accommodate our request for a window table with a spectacular view. It was a lovely lunch.
Fabulous dinner at Jake’s! The food was fantastic and the wait staff was very attentive. Great ocean view during dinner was a bonus. Will definitely return.
What a wonderful evening we enjoyed! Amazing food, wonderful service, and an unforgettable view!
Visiting from Canada, great find. Beautiful surroundings, nice atmosphere, very good food and great friendly service by Daniel !
Jake’s, while very good, is perhaps too popular. It was very crowded when we arrived for lunch, with people waiting for tables in front of the hostess station. It was consequently also quite noisy. Although we had a 1:00 p.m. reservation, we had to pass time at the bar until a window table became available. (Jake’s will not allocate a window table in advance.). Once seated, however, all went well. The view over a grassy sward to the ocean is memorable. Our food was excellent, and the service efficient. So, we recommend Jake’s, but suggest that you dine there at off-peak hours.
We have been frequenting Jakes for more than 30 years. It has a terrific location on the beach. The restaurant is always very clean. Food is always very good and nicely presented.
Wait service is always well trained in table etiquette & the Wait service is always well groomed, courteous & as friendly as your personal preference prefers them to be.
I am a very critical person especially having been brought up in the restaurant business.
In my opinion it is an overall well run establishment and worthy of your patronage.
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.
Jake’s in Del Mar is a great location. Jake’s staff is outstanding, from door to table and points in between.
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!
Jake’s is my favorite restaurant and they never disappoint.
Beautiful view! And the food was good. We went for brunch My friend and I didn’t care for the macadamia cinnamon roll but their take on breakfast potatoes was unreal! So good! I’m expecting so I couldn’t try their POG mimosa but they actually had a couple mocktail options that I tried and that was good too! Literally so good that I’m making my husband take me ASAP
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!
