You don’t need to cross the Pacific to get a taste of Hawaii. Duke’s La Jolla is San Diego’s island-inspired home, honoring the Ambassador of Aloha, Duke Kahanamoku, with coastal cuisine of Hawaii, craft cocktails and a genuine spirit of aloha. It’s the same authentic hospitality and panoramic ocean view that you’ll find at all of the California and Hawaii Duke’s restaurants, paying tribute to the Duke and welcoming you to celebrate life like the legend himself.

Had a wonderful server. Enjoyed Mai Tais, that tasted like real Mai Tais. Had the special fish dish that day, excellent. And the small piece of key lime pie was outstanding…perfect to share. Sat out on the deck, cool and breezy but the heaters were going. The place gets a crazy amount of business so felt it looked a little tired…Didn’t love having the table by the exit door the employees use, but a minor issue. Overall we recommend.

The staff are friendly, helpful and upbeat. We selected the coconut shrimp appetizer- how can you go wrong with fried shrimp. The macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi was light and good. However the special salmon dish was simply outstanding- the best item not on the menu. I would go back everyday to eat that beautiful burst of flavor. Of course the signature desert - Hula Pie - in the form of a wave was also incredible taste. This place was awesome. Impossible to overstate how great.

As close to the islands as possible without leaving home. Always makes me miss Hawaii tho. The POG slushie with rum is amazing. The poke tacos appetizer is a must. So delicious. The fish tacos are also delicious and so is dukes burger. And of course the hula pie is a must. The view is unbeatable. So def make a reservation and try to get seated outside overlooking the water.

The Baked Duke’s Fish w/Halibut was deliciously tender & the Mac Nut Crusted fish with Mahi Mahi was also excellent. I had the chef’s special togarashi crusted salmon with risotto cake and pineapple salsa which was good, but a bit too spicy for me & the stem ends of my asparagus were very green yet woody. Everyone enjoyed the green risotto cake! Hubby had the spare ribs & chicken plate w/mac salad, bok choy slaw, & white rice. It was huge but some of the rice seemed fine, other parts were a bit mushy. The waiter kept forgetting my husband’s POG slushie, but he eventually remembered. The garnishes were different: my son had a pineapple slice but hubby had a maraschino cherry. LOL! The b-day hula pie was a nice finish. We were all stuffed at the end. The view is wonderful by the glass wall overlooking the beach & bluffs!

Calamari didn’t taste great either. Atmosphere and view are nice. Service was good too.

The one major noteworthy item was how cold the place was. Went for an evening / sunset dinner which was lovely - and FREEZING with a wind that went through the whole restaurant all night (was in long pants and long sleeve shirt) - next time bring a good coat... (everyone at our table was cold despite even some having light coats on...)

You feel like you’re in Hawaii with the casual, beach atmosphere, tropical drinks & amazing Hawaiian inspired dishes like their Panko Crusted Calamari and Macadamia Nut & Herb Crusted Fresh Fish for dinner. We can never decide between the Banana Macnut Pancakes or Loco Moco when we’re there for breakfast. We’ve always had impeccable service from the hostesses to the waiters. Prices are very affordable especially for being in La Jolla with one of the best views in San Diego.
