Jake’s Del Mar brings new American cooking to the edge – to the water’s edge that is. Located right on the beach in Del Mar Chef Duvinh Ta uses fresh, seasonal products as the inspiration for updating classic preparations of fresh fish, shellfish and premium meats. The lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch menus showcase clean, eclectic flavors and local, sustainable products that are complemented by Jake’s jaw dropping location on the sand. The nightly Chef’s Special is a seasonal creation that features the best seafood, meats and produce available and through the Legacy of Aloha program, Jake’s donates a portion the proceeds from the Chef’s Special to the San Diego Food Bank.

I held my husband's 42nd birthday at Jake's last week. Jake's is a perfect place for a fun gathering of friends for great food with an outstanding view of the ocean. The food was cooked perfectly, each dish we had was amazing, and the service was superb. Christian, our server, went out of his way to make our event memorable and exciting. Our beverages from the bar were perfect and the prices were very reasonable.

We had an excellent meal in a pleasant atmosphere with great service. A Mahi Mahi special was absolutely delicious and served elegantly while my wife’s ravioli with shrimp was exquisite. Good wine selection made the evening special. A must stop for anyone visiting the Del Mar area.

It was a wonderful experience. Great service, excellent food and drinks, and beautiful sunset. Seating by the window is perfect for a special occasion.

We were celebrating a birthday and requested a seat for 2 near the window. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect seat. The views of the ocean were fabulous. Service was great. Food was very good. Our fish was a tiny bit over cooked. We mentioned it to the waiter and he was kind enough to comp our first two drinks. The hula pie dessert is very tasty and more than enough for 2-4 people. It’s gigantic. This is one of my favorite restaurants when visiting San Diego.

Jakes is always outstanding. This time we had a group of friends and family who hadn’t seen each other in awhile. The food was awesome, (especially the seafood pot!) and the service was great from the moment we arrived. Shannon was very accommodating on this busy night and we didn’t wait long. Got a great table with a view of the ocean and really enjoyed that. Our server, (Daniel was his name I think) was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Really nice to be treated as “special” in a place that has tons of loyal customers. Anyway, Jakes is #1 on my list in the San Diego area for sure.

Our group had a reservation and we were seated right on time. Dustin our server was delightful. I had steak with shrimp. Excellent choice, steak very tender and cooked perfectly. My husband had burger, enjoyed flavors just messy. My sister had vegetarian dish and was quite pleased. As always, parking can be complicated.

If you reserve a table for several people they keep the whole group waiting at the entrance until the last person comes. Good food, good waiters, rude management.

The service and the view were outstanding! The food was lack luster, however: the Brussels sprouts were overly sweet, the lobster roll uninteresting.
