Jake's Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Jake’s many times over the years and always had a great experience. This time not so much. The scallop entree that I ordered was not the same as what I had ordered many times previously and I really did not like it. The special, corbina, was very bland. The service was not so great (compared to our previous experiences) but the Hula Pie was delicious as ever. Think we’ll take a break from Jake’s for a bit in the hopes that maybe this was just an “off night”
Jakes is located in Del Mar with incredible views of the beach and water out the window. It is definitely worth paying a little more money for the view. The server was delightful and attentive. The lunch portions are on the smaller and a little pricey but worth the view.
From the hostess's smiling face greeting us to our waiter's final goodbye, everyone was friendly and helpful. We ordered the grilled shrimp appetizer and the apple and candied walnut salad as lunch and there was more than enough and wonderful tasting. My husband had the Caesar salad with sashimi and was quite pleased. The cocktails were strong and refreshing and the setting was lovely.
The view is amazing! Especially on a beautiful day like today. The parking is pretty challenging weather you valet which got backed up or park in the pay lot across the street. The food was amazing and so was the service with only one comment, even though we had a reservation we had to wait in the bar for a bit until our table is ready. Two of the three people in our party were there so although they would not seat us until we were all there they should have set aside a table knowing obviously we would need one. Not a big deal though and drink in the bar is still a good way to pass a little time.
we request a change of seating as the first table assigned to us was in the dark corner with no sea view, the attraction of the restaurant was its location on the beach. However our request to change table was happily accepted by the host and we were able to move to a much better seating area.
I think the reception might forgot to note the change of table for this reservation
Had great food and service. Selected the Calamari for app which was fresh and delicious, main course we had the seafood pot which had plenty of fresh cooked seafood but the broth was a little pan, could have used some spices and I got the special; Swordfish over greens which was outstanding, only wish the piece of fish was a little bigger. ended with a hula pie for the table and it was good, but certainly not as good as Dukes in HI . Server did a great job, and knew the menu and how to be available but didnt press us which was perfect. Overall great quality, service and view. thanks
We went to Jake’s Del Mar to celebrate our anniversary. We were greeted with a “happy anniversary “ by all of the staff. Our waiter, Dustin was friendly and attentive. After we finished our meal he brought us a delicious dessert of ice cream, hot fudge and nuts topped with a candle. Needless to say, the location and food at Jake’s is superb. Thanks for a very special anniversary celebration.
Jake's has wonderful windows that let you feel like you're on the beach when you are comfortably inside. The food was excellent! We were celebrating a birthday, which we noted when making the reservation. It was handled wonderfully. There was a card and seashell for the birthday person as well as a complimentary dessert - all very discrete (no singing) so even the shyest person would enjoy it. They even let the birthday person choose their dessert from the regular menu. We went with the Hula Pie and there was plenty for all 5 of us.
Outstanding food, great wine list, and impeccable service and attentiveness. The waiter had great knowledge of the cuisine and made some fantastic suggestions along with ensuring that the all of our needs were happily met. To top it off, my table had a direct view of the beautiful ocean and beach.
