Great Experience !.
My husband and I are L.A. locals and came to Del Mar or the week end. We wanted to eat close to our hotel and stumbled on to Jakes, resistant to eat at a chain ( though we have eaten at their Dukes in malibu, Hula Grill and Leilanis in Hawaii ) we did any way and went in and ate dinner. The view was amazeing!
The food was good, scallops were great, seafood cocktail fresh and delicious, the rolls, dangerously delicious.
What stood out to us was the amazeing customer service, the friendly host and wait staff, the manager who would stop by and GENUINELY ask how we liked our food and even pour our water !!!! The big smiles on everyones faces and the 500 goodbyes as we left the building.
Steaks, fresh fish and a sparkling ocean view await patrons at Del Mar's waterfront grill, a local favorite.. In Short Part of the Pacific chain of restaurants that includes Hula Grill Waikiki and Duke's Malibu, Jake's is set right on Del Mar's shore. The restaurant has valet parking and fine cuisine, but the atmosphere stays California casual with a lively bar and afternoon happy hours. Dinner favorites include lamb, strip steak and roasted lobster tails. Finish with the hula pie--a decadent mess of macadamia nut ice cream, fudge, and whipped cream on a cookie crust.
