    We had a truly wonderful dinner at Jake’s. Phenomenal food, service and a great table with a view of the ocean (waves lit up at night was a special touch). Will definitely recommend and return.

    We had the best time. "Little" party at 630 1.31.23. Every single thing was perfect. I ate at Addison 6 months ago, regularly dine at Mr A's. On and on. . . I would have preferred a window. Luck of the draw. Waiter was great, food from the crab cakes , to the cesare & 3 fish entrées with cheesecake + mud pie. My Grey Gooses were spot on also. Loved it.

    Visiting from Seattle for the first time, I have to say the experience was absolutely phenomenal. The atmosphere both inside and out and the food was better than anything expected. Making a reservation for a window seat is a must. The bartenders and wait staff didn't leave us wanting for anything. The food was light, fresh, and seasoned to perfection. The valet was prompt and attentive! Definitely a must do in Del Mar.

    Ok. Very nice view of the ocean. Portions are very small compared to the price they charge. Also, the waitresses need to learn how to open wine and not spill it. It took forever for her to open our wine then she spilled at least a couple dollars worth on our table (no apologies, discounts given of course).

    We were seated behind the one part of the wall facing the ocean that isn’t a window after being reassured we’d have a view, and it was absolutely freezing inside. The food and service were great as always though.

    What a disappointing outing to a favorite place. My wife's Caesar salad had no dressing and when we asked for some they brought airlines rather than dressing.. My crab cake was not a patty but rather loose stir fried crab. Our gran daughter's hamburger was overcooked and dry. MacKenzie was a good waitress but overworked with too many tables to overcome kitchen failures

    Food was excellent, especially the steak. Valet guys were also excellent. However, we felt rushed from the moment we walked in from the table assignor at the check in area to the busboy to the waitress, to the annoying ladies walking around every 5 minutes with their iPads checking seat availability ( who does that? can’t say I have seen that in other restaurants) . When you order a $100 bottle of wine why rush it?

    As usual, food and service were wonderful. One star off for seating us next to a very loud, very disruptive family with singing, screaming, jumping children. They were so loud that we could barely carry on a conversation. Put a real damper on our overall experience.

    The food was not as good as it used to be. Salmon sauce was metallic tasting. Ceviche was a unique flavor, no shrimp either. They used to serve bread, there was none offered. Not the same experience we have always had when we have gone many times previously. Disappointed.

    We arrived at 5PM to see the spectacular sunset at 5:15! Unfortunately they had no outdoor seating as we had requested. We noted every window in the building was closed, and restaurant was very full. We were told that others felt it was cold, and had no concerns for Influenza/ RSV/ and Covid. Not a mask in the place. As we were not comfortable with this, we left and did take-out elsewhere! Simply a sign of the times. Could have put us next to an open window, or suggested takeout from Jake's, but they were just doing one thing, and it wasn't outs.

    We had another amazing meal at Jake's Del Mar. Our server, Velma was outstanding! She provided excellent service and was very attentive. The albacore caesar salad, the salmon caesar salad, and the fish and chips were cooked to perfection and tasted excellent. The view was absolutely gorgeous! We would highly recommend Jake's Del Mar if you want an amazing meal with outstanding service and a gorgeous view.

    Went to Jakes to celebrated our 1 year anniversary and it was an amazing time! The hostess wished us a happy anniversary, there was a nice card on the table, our server Karissa incredible, and the food was delicious! We had a great time and are really grateful for Karissa and the entire staff at Jake’s. It made the night really special.

    Amazing food! Such a beautiful setting with views from every table. Service was a bit slow but I think that’s because there were so many large parties. Eh, no big deal. Food was delicious and the hula pie was huge and yummy. Really one of my favorite restaurants and we’ll be back.

    Dennis was our server. He was always making sure we we’re enjoying our meal and had drinks. We’ve had him before. He’s excellent. The only little bit of disappointment was we were in patio area and thee was a post which made it difficult to view the sunset.We dine at Jake’s not only for their delicious food and Mai tai’s (the best) but to see the sunset. Never disappoints. The view is spectacular.

    Excellent location, great service, everyone was friendly. The prawns with basil were great, as were the Brussels sprouts. Mahi mahi and sea were both prepared perfectly. To top it off, we got there early enough to watch the sunset (beautiful). While somewhat pricey, overall worth the cost.
