    Todd was our server and one of the most pleasant, attentive and just all around one of the best servers I think we have had in a long time. The food was good but we are both simple eaters and would like to see a little bit better variety of dinner and appetizers choices. We visit Jakes for the summer Del Mar races and our first though it always make reservations for dinner as soon as we get our preferred seats reserved.

    I was recommended to try Jake’s bc it was so good while visiting San Diego with family. I previewed the menu and thought it would be good to give a try. Glad I did bc the atmosphere was great with the view of the beach & ocean. Wait staff was good, friendly and helpful… knowledgeable with the menu. Food was so good. Different flavors and not the usual run of the mill seafood menu/recipe.

    Appreciated the availability of valet parking because the beach was crowded! Seated promptly by an open window with lovely beach view and sea breeze blowing in. Staff all super friendly. Drinks great. Food ok. Chowder wasn’t hot, just kind of warm. Caesar salad had absolutely no flavor nor did the seared tuna on top of it. Ribs were ok. Should have gotten the tacos-it looked like that’s what every other table got!! Let’s face it, the reason to go is the fabulous setting right on the beach! So enjoyable overall.

    We booked this venue for dinner after being recommended on a few sites as one of the staple restaurants in Del Mar. I’m the time leading up to my reservation, I started to read a lot of mixed reviews. Based on these, we decided to make a meal of appetizers and pass on the entrees. We got a nice table for 2, and even though it was a late reservation and it was dark, they light up the beach so you still see the ocean. Fried Calamari: not your usual ones, but interesting with the sweet chili sauce Brussel sprouts: delicious, you a black garlic aioli sauce to die for The Shrimps: DELICIOUS coated with basil pesto and wrapped in prosciutto The Ceviche: was OK, but missing a little something on the seasoning, maybe a little bit more spice. The guacamole that comes with it was a little bland as well. For dessert, their infamous Hula pie did not disappoint (especially if you love ice cream). Our waiter Dennis was very nice, super reactive and knowledgeable about the history of the venue. Thank you for making it a great experience.

    My wife and I were vacationing in Del Mar and had eaten previously at Jakes but had seating away from the ocean views. However, this trip we made reservations a few weeks ahead and received a front ocean side table. - Excellent views and great food! Our server was actually named “Jake” and he was terrific! Will return again in near future.

    Came this time for lunch and got a completely different vibe. This time we were sat on the patio so we were that much closer to the ocean waves and the people on the beach. Felt like I was on vacation. Loved it.

    Crispy calamari appetizer was not crispy but thick and rubbery. Halibut special was flavorless and accompanying vegetables uncooked. Really a big disappointment.
