We ate lunch at Jakes on a Saturday while in La Jolla celebrating our Anniversary. Fortunately I called ahead and booked reservations. The food and service were both excellent but the view of the ocean is awesome. I highly recommend.

Had not visited Jakes in 3 years and forgot how picturesque the location is and the fresh seafood is fantastic! We had the Mixed Seafood Pot which was excellent along with the Cesar Salad. Sunset was unbelievable...

Terrific location right on the beach. Excellent food - had dinner and then also brunch there. Try to get a table on the window facing the beach - booths are not as comfortable. The salmon and steaks we ordered were fantastic. Crabcake and calamari appetizers...More

Business casual. Dress Jeans/Pants/nice top is fine. Nothing too fancy... The views of the ocean are superb so people often go walking on the beach before or after dining - so its dressier casual, but in no means formal.

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.
