Food was amazing! The ocean view at night was also amazing, but I gotta say our server Daniel was outstanding. He made my boyfriend and I laugh up a storm his humor was the best!! In a industry where it seems that the service at a lot of restaurants are going downhill this guy stood out!! Thank you Daniel:) My boyfriend I both work in the restaurant industry and we highly recommend Jake’s!
Nice dinner out, table had a beautiful view. Food was very good, my friend had the scallops and I had the halibut. Our only criticism would be that this restaurant is pretty noisy when it’s busy and although the food was very good the portions were on the small side for the price of each entree. Overall we had a nice dining experience and would come back again.
Our server was great both at our table and in the bar. Sorry, I forgot their names. Both of them were men. Thanks
We enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Jake’s. The setting is very beautiful on oceans edge. The menu itself is limited but they were definitely enough choices available for fish & meet lovers. Desert also with only 4 choices.
Lunch for seven: Food was delicious as well as two shared deserts. I had the Beachside Vegan meal and it was so tasty that I had the leftovers for my dinner the next night too. Maggie, our waitress was professional, personable and a true positive addition to the magnificent setting and delicious food. Not our first time at Jakes and certainly will not be our last. Thank you.
Jakes has location for sure but the food and the service were really great . Go....
Jakes is a fantastic restaurant—Today was particularly awesome! Great food, great wine, great company, and great service! This restaurant is a must in the San Diego area!
Fabulous! You are missing out if you miss out on Jake's
one of THE most incredible places in north county to eat dinner. The food is great, the service is great and the view is great. I do not make recommendations, but I recommend Jakes.!!!!!
Have enjoyed dining here for many years. Great ocean view, tasty food, nice bar selection and good prices. Special place for my wife and I.
We had a great experience from the hostess, bar service, dinner service and manager. We had an amazing table with amazing food. We will be back very soon. Thanks for a great evening!
We always go to Jakes each year to celebrate my friends birthday. I am never disappointed and the food is consistently good!! Can't say that for many restaurants.
Been there several times .Always had great service and food,this time we were disappointed. Halibut over cooked,steak was chewy.
Server was great. My steak salad was good and cooked correctly but very tough.
We were there for a birthday lunch. Staff was exceptional-friendly, courteous and attentive. Food and drinks were great! Atmosphere can’t be beat.
I was not aware that they shut down the dinning room between 3-5. We drove all the way from phoenix to specifically celebrate my birthday and were told we could only sit in the bar even though it wasn't even 3 yet. The waitress in the bar was not friendly and service took forever. It was extremely crowded and definitely not the experience I had previously. The manager basically told me I was just hangry and I would feel better when I got some food.
I have eaten at this restaurant before and had an amazing experience. Unfortunately this last dinner was incredibly disappointing. Our waiter was very bad. He was borderline rude, and very slow. We watched other tables be served as we waited for our waiter to acknowledge us. He was condescending and made the experience worse than it needed to be. Our food was also disappointing. When we ate here before my daughter got the scallops and they were delicious. This night they came out raw. I am vegan and have ordered the curry multiple times. This dinner the rice and sweet potatoes were cold and there wasn't enough curry sauce to even coat the bowl. When the waiter finally came back to ask us how our dinner was, he was defensive and rude when I complained about the food. My daughter's scallops came back completely overdone this time. There should be a happy medium between raw and inedibly chewy. My curry was warm when it came back out but wasn't good as it had been a few weeks prior. All in all for a celebratory meal and over $130 dollars for the two of us very disappointing.
Average food quality. Paying for the view and not the food.
Love the mixed seafood pot. Never ordered it before, but will likely have it every time I come. The broth and risotto cake makes it so yummy! Also, love that you are keeping the tradition of serving up the birthday hula pie. So delicious and greatly appreciated since it was my birthday. My Mom and I had a great time and will be back for her birthday. Thanks!
Food and service and view were impeccable. The music was a bit loud to visit with people at your table. Overall, I love my dining experience at Jake’s.
For our wedding anniversary, they reserved a table with the beautiful ocean view for us!
Great atmosphere, great service and great food. It was our first time to dine there, however we have already decided that we would come back very soon!
Love Jakes! Food is always amazing! Calamari one of our favorites
Best view in town!
Our server was very friendly, the food was delicious and the view of the sun setting on the ocean was breathtaking. Would definitely return!!!
They don’t honor reservation. Food served cold.
Every thing was going great until the check came. The server took my credit card and returned with a smile and said “good news, Kathleen, your card went through “. I looked at him weirdly and said “ why wouldn’t it?” He chuckled and left the bill. I was insulted and embarrassed by what I can only imagine was a joke on his part. Really ruined a lovely birthday dinner for my husband. Disappointing
Great view, Scallops were excellent, the halibut special was really overdone should’ve sent it back. A little disappointing.
The best tuna ever!
As always, great fun and very good food and drink!
It's rare that a restaurant can sustain a level of exceptional excellence over a long period of time. Jake's has done just that. It also feels like an indigenous Del Mar establishment, even though I was surprised to learn it is not. Usually the above qualities seem to come from a single owner who continues to be personally involved on a regular basis, so I am impressed by the established priorities of the owners and their evident commitment to this excellence. Well done.
We'll be back!
It was very busy but staff made use feel like there was no rush. Just the right amount of attention. Looking forward to our next visit!
They are absolutely amazing every time I go and the manager JR is incredible! Love this place! Staff and food and location are as good as it gets!
My husband and I recently dinned here for our anniversary. They placed an anniversary card on our table which was nice. Our waiter Ashley was great, he was great with suggestions and checking in but not too often. View is amazing, right on the water. Only criticism is that it is really loud inside! We were almost yelling at each other because it was so noisy!
Always and excellent time!! Simple delicious food, great service and unbeatable views and location.
A classic spot that guarantees a great time.
I make sure to reserve a table at Jakes anytime I am in Del Mar! Can’t beat the view nor the food.
Went twice on family trip. Great romantic dinner spot with ‘window’ table - beautiful!! Came back the following day for lunch with the kids. Food, ambience, everything was fantastic! Hint: use the valet parking.
Beautiful setting next to the beach and food was excellent. Will definitely be back.
Amazing place. We love all the restaurants in this restaurant group. We've also been to Dukes and Keoki's in Kauai and to Duke's in La Jolla. They all have amazing views, ambiance, and great food.
Our server was fun, answered all our questions, was attentive and helped us enjoy the special occasion. The food from the appetizers, to the entrees and then dessert were fabulous!
After searching for a good restaurant online, I wasn't disappointed when we ate at Jakes in Del Mar. The bar scene was hopping, bartender attentive and friendly. Menu diverse enough to have many choices. Prices reasonable for dining on the beach in Del Mar. Our server was delightful and available. I'll be back again.
