We found Jake's on Tripadvisor and had a fabulous meal. parking is limited but they have a valet. I'm gluten free and they were very accommodating and had a lot to choose from. My daughter loved the hula pie for dessert

Had read this was a must try restruant in the area and just happened upon it during a sunset beach walk. The staff were very friendly, professional and accommodating (w/o a reservation, I requested an oceanside window table and got one). The calamari was excellent as was the hula pie. I had already eaten all early dinner; I was just... More

Hadn't been to Jake's in a few years and wasn't thrilled to return. Was I wrong! Love being right on the beach. I had the beet salad and a lovely Rosé wine, husband had the fish tacos and an ice cold beer and he loved it. Service was fantastic, food was fresh and a great place for lunch. We will... More

Gorgeous views - walk onto the sand after. Concierge at hotel suggested, but thought I would find my own spot - until I arrived here. Ate at the bar, great service!

Wife and I consider ourselves foodies. We're LA natives and We just came back from spending the weekend in La Jolla and wanted to find a place with a good Brunch and a great view. After some research, we found Jake's. Have to say this place exceeded expectations for both. Stopped in for Sunday brunch and found seating pretty quick(would... More

Ate here twice during our stay in Del Mar. Delicious food, great service and a beautiful location. The fish tacos were fantastic as was the fish pot. They were very lovely about our kids coming in just for another piece of hula pie. One of the highlights of our holiday

We read reviews that Jake's was the place to go for the beach side dining experience. It did not disappoint. We scheduled the time of our dinner to coincide with sunset. It was breathtaking. Our meal was delicious and our waiter was great. Everything about our experience was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant and when I return to San... More

Amazing service from start to finish. Gorgeous views. Appetizer and entree were good, but I definitely recommend the hula pie for dessert. Utilize the valet service.

Description
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.
