I frequently am at Duke’s La Jolla, family was visiting from Florida. They were impressed with the food and the service. They were happy to become aware of the TS restaurants in Hawai’i for a future trip. Great evening!
Great food, amazing service and the view is to die for! I love Dukes💓
The atmosphere is awesome! Our server was excellent; professional, friendly, and attentive. Our food and drinks were very tasty, although pricey. We love it here and will for sure return.
Our server was outstanding as well as all the wait staff. Even the person bussing the tables was very friendly and he had a great demeanor. The dinner was delicious and the view was beautiful. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and were allowed to relax and enjoy our meal and conversation without feeling rushed. Even the staff at the front, where we bought some shirts, was very kind and accommodating. We’ll definitely be back!
The lavender coladas and macadamia nut crusted fish are amazing!!!!
Great first time experience since we weren’t able to eat at Waikiki location on our vacation last year. We plan to return again.
Dukes was so accommodating and they have awesome service!!!
Duke's was delicious (both dinner and cocktails). My only current issue was that this was a special occasion dinner and they only allowed pictures at a place they labeled "Duke's Lookout" which was a terrible lookout and did not allow you to see the ocean from the pictures. I am completely willing to socially distance and not be close to other guests, but they picked a terrible place for photos. Terribly disappointing.
W love coming to Duke’s. Service is always fast and pleasant!
Great time overlooking the Pacific. Duke’s does a fine job on the burgers.
Great atmosphere and amazing view on the patio. Super service!!
Birthday for GF. Herb crusted fish was amazing and the fish tacos was unbelievable. Truly an amazing experience to sit by the water and enjoy a perfectly cooked dinner! The birthday desert was incredible. Gotta love Dukes.
We had fish tacos.
They were not up0 to Duke's standards. The wedge salad was good
Have been to Duike's in Hawaii many times and was not disappointed with the La Jolla location. Due to Covid-19 there was only outside seating. But that was great because the view of La Jolla Cove was spectacular. I enjoyed my Ahi salad and my husband his hamburger. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a casual lunch.
You can't beat Duke's! Great food, attentive service, and the VIEW! I never get tired of this place.
Food is always so good and they are very accommodating with food allergies.
The food was OK. The Poke Tacos were the best. The fish tacos didn't have a lot of flavor to them, The coconut shrimp was over cooked. The Mai Tai's just did not taste like Duke's Mai Tai's. Not sure what was missing but they were bitter tasting. Our server was from Oahu and was amazing, he did a good job.The atmosphere was quiet. I made a Anniversary reservation and requested the railing tables. There was a walk in couple who was in front of us and the hostess put them at one of those tables and put us at the back of the restaurant.
Opentable saved the night. Was able to place a reservation as we walked into the location. Confirmation was received when they told us they were booked for the night. It worked out very nicely.
We had a wonderful evening at Duke's. All staff members were super nice and helpful. We felt extremely safe dining here. The food was great and probably the best we had on our trip to San Diego. The atmosphere is very tropical and feels kind of special. We ordered two apps (crunchy shrimp and crab cakes), cocktails (mai tai, coconut mojito, and the lemonade), and dinners (kids mac and cheese, ravioli, mac nut fish and fish of the day) and of course dessert (the hula pie and key lime pie). EVERYTHING was delicious!
Food was amazing. Romantic. They also seem to be very clean.
Staff was very nice and helpful. We had a reservation for 1pm, and got right in on time!
Food was awesome, and the view from the outdoor table was great. We really enjoyed our meal there.
Wonderful restaurant! The view is worth it alone,the food and drinks are delicious! Our server Shannon is amazing and elevated the experience. We love this place and look forward to going back
If you love the hawiian vibe and great food this is the place. Wonderful view of the ocean. Loved it
We absolutely LOVED Duke's La Jolla. We will definitely be back next week. From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out! Amazing! The "Loco Moco" plate was delicious! See you Sunday for brunch!
1st Anniversary Night!
Duke’s was a great stop for us. We anticipated going there before we ever even arrived in California and it didn’t disappoint.
We started with the calamari frites which were cooked perfectly. Crispy and leaving you wanting more. A lemon on the side might help elevate the flavors but still great overall.
We followed it up with the crusted sea bass with jasmine rice and asparagus plate for my wife which she enjoyed and the filet mignon for myself. The corn, wow! That was so creamy and fresh. The filet mug on had a bunch of flavors going on. I could have used less garlic underneath in the cilantro sauce, but the onion jam was perfect. Awesome flavor. The steak itself was a little over from my medium rare request, but not tough so still very enjoyable.
We took some pictures with the cove behind us. So picturesque. When we sat back down, the waitress provided us with a hula cake on the house. That was a nice touch and we really appreciate the gesture.
Made a reservation 3 weeks early. Told them was a special occasion.They tried to stick us wIt’s the worst table next to bus stations. They did accommodate us to better table upon request. Our waitress was super A+
Visiting our family coming from La Quinta. Our server, Ciera, very attentive and friendly. Food nice and simple. Korean ribs a bit too hot. Loved the key lime and Hulu pies. Nice family get together.
Beautiful atmosphere and good view from our table. Jen was an attentive server with a great attitude
16th bday celebration
Enjoyed lunch on the patio at Duke's. Beautiful view, excellent food & great service.
The weather was perfect and the ambiance was so nice! Food was yummy & the cocktails were tasty
One of my favorite spot for brunch
Wonderful Experience! Phenomenal service.
My wife and I love coming to Duke’s for the Hawaiian atmosphere and food with a gorgeous view of La Jolla Cove. The balcony gives a breathtaking view and was especially welcome with current health restrictions. We ordered the ahi tuna steak and macadamia nut crusted fish, finishing with a Hula Pie ice cream cake slice for which the restaurant is famous. We have come several times over the years and find the food and service a real treat.
Always a fantastic experience
Always great food and service. Lots of Aloha!
We had a beautiful view of the ocean. Our server was awesome!
Great lunch with na keiki - Hawaiian casual and completely enjoyable
Great time on our anniversary! Service was outstanding! Thank you & we look forward to coming back!
