We ate here tonight at the recommendation of our concierge at the Hilton Torrey Pines, and were happy campers afterward. This is a busy restaurant, and we found that getting a reservation with a guaranteed spot in valet was much easier on a Sunday night...More

Great restaurant in Del Mar on the beach. I have had a lot of Calamari over the years, none as good as the Calamari at Jakes. The rest of the meal was great too. Make reservations. Tends to be packed.

Hate to give a bad review based on one dinner. So will just say the restaurant was packed, so must mean something. Fabulous view and jumping happy hour.

The ribs are gluten free, the burger has a gluten free bun option and almost all of the seafood dishes are either gluten free on the menu or can easily be made gluten free.

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.
