Took visiting relatives there for lunch & requested a beach side/ ocean view table. We were accommodated with a front table. The food was very good as always.

We were seated just at sunset at a window table. Dinner and service was just top notch! Best dinner on our family vacation in the La Jolla area. Do not miss but make a reservation!

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.
