Jaynes is San Diego's trailblazing first and only Brit owned Gastropub. The eclectic menu features gourmet takes on pub classics using local, organic and sustainably farmed produce, meats and seafood. Beverage highlights include the city's most avant garde wine list from wine director Jon Erickson, a world class craft cocktail program and a broad beer list on draft and in bottles. The beautiful old world interior and garden patio is reminiscent of London and San Francisco and rates among the most charming in the entire city. Utterly non-corporate, Jaynes is the local's secret darling on North Park's 30th street.

The noise level was above normal. Too loud for table conversation
The service was slow. We ordered and waited at least 60 minutes for our food.
The waitress didn’t come over until I reached out to her. She made an excuse for the kitchen. We saw numerous tables seated, served and leaving before we received our meal. The waitress offered dessert on the house but , again, we waited 20 minutes for the dessert and coffee. Adding insult to injury. When my guest complained on the low service her response was “ really?”. Another mistake.
Overall I would never recommend this restaurant.
Our guests were long time dear friends from out of town. It was an embarrassment for my husband and myself.

We've been to Jayne's twice, once for their special Thanksgiving Day menu, and the second time for dinner with friends. The entrees are inspired and delicious. The vegetarians and meat eaters alike were content with the selections offered. One complaint, the Shepherd's Pie did not contain much lamb. The dish was overpowered by the mashed potato.

I made reservations for Easter brunch. I wish the menu was available online so we had a better idea of what to order. I ordered the brioche French toast and I loved it.

Sat outside for brunch on a tiny patio on Easter Sunday next to a large, loud party of 12. Not fun. Ordered famous fish & chips which were soggy ☹️

Went here for first meal in San Diego, visiting from Seattle and Denver. Father daughter dinner, choose the patio to chat. Little noisy inside. Heated patio. Attentive servers, warned when ordered a longer prep dinner entree. Shepherds pie was delicious, perfect comfort food after a day of travel. Dad had the fish and chips and raved about them. Fresh side of peas stole the show.

I was drawn here primarily by the news that Jayne's had added the vegan Impossible Burger and also that it was a pub-style atmosphere. We found the place was very cozy and darkly romantic. The server was very attentive, and informative.

The burger's preparation was so good, I was fooled into thinking that it was meat.

The meal was excellent....everyone enjoyed their selections. The wine was outstanding and only equaled by the great service. The only problem is the noise level and I am not sure that it could be remedied given the space. Perhaps if Jayne’s could expand that issue would be taken into consideration.

I hadn't been to Jayne's in a few years but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. A good, simple menu. Delicious food, good service and a great atmosphere. It's very comfortable and inviting here.

This restaurant is very small so the place gets loud very fast in a full house. Not a good spot if you want to have a conversation. Ordered a medium rare burger and it came out rare :/ At $20 I expected a great, perfect burger. It was tasty and I did not send it back because I didn't feel like dealing with another hassle. My drink order (gin & tonic) was made wrong twice. On top of that, I was questioned if I was "sure" the alcohol was not gin! Seriously?
To be balanced, my friends said their halibut was good.

Most places call themselves “gastro pubs” when they’re really just fancy pubs. This is the real deal. Eclectic menu. Everything done very well.

This was my second visit, and it did not disappoint. I ate the special which was perfectly cooked scallops with risotto. My girlfriend had the steak frites. Both dishes were unbelievable on their own, but combined nicely for surf and turf. The wine was great, the wait staff was great, overall 10/10!

Our men's book club meets frequently at Jaynes lured by the ambiamce, great service and superior quality of the food. We prefer seating either at the front table facing the street window or the charming open air courtyard in the back. The book club members are a 'happy go lucky' group, and the staff generally adds to the bonhomie spirit. We've enjoyed the excellent wine list and drink selections. The appetizers and special menu selections are generally superb, whil pricey. We alternate our book club venues monthly, but we regularily return to Jaynes as our favorite. We generally meet monthly on Tuesday evenings.

Beautiful spot, but a bit loud. Overall we had a mediocre at best food experience. My steak was supposed to be medium rare but was rare through half. Server didn’t ent check in, so by the time we got his attention we were just ready to wrap. They did comp a dessert that was nice. Won’t be going back unfortunately.

We went for the Restaurant Week dinner and were very happy with everything. The cocktails were particularly good and the food was excellent. I had the filet mignon which was perfectly prepared and accompanied by a nice vegetable selection. Staff were great. This was one of the most enjoyable meals I have had for a while.

Food and service was great. However, so many hard surfaces made the sound very loud. Very difficult to hear each other. We ordered a glass of port after the meal. It was excellent but the glass I had was a bit "unclean".
