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.

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.

I always enjoy dinner at Jayne's. It's one of my favorite San Diego restaurants. Great food and drinks and ambiance. We never miss the wiener schnitzel. It's a special treat when it's on the menu. Excellent selection of beer and wines here too.

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.

Excellent cocktails. My salmon was good; my companion's lamb was way too gamey for me - but then, he ordered it, not me! Service was very good, and I love the atmosphere in the rear patio.

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.

Tried this place during SDRW. We weren’t disappointed. The food was great... filet, lamb kabobs, goat cheese soufflé. The Halibut was over cooked and dry but the rest was great. Cute restaurant with outdoor area too. We’ll definitely be back.

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".

We love this restaurant in our neighborhood. However this time the fish of the fish and chips was soggy. The short ribs were tough, grizzly like. They were hard to chew and cut. The Italian wedding soup was outstanding. We bought three $50.00 bottle of wine,plus beer. To compensate, they gave us free desserts. The waitress said she would tell the chef. No visit by chef or manager or voice of appreciation and or sorrow. Our friends said they would not return.

The ambience, the service, the food; all wonderful. The patio is a very special at night with high hedges, string lights and heat lamps to keep you warm. We had three dinners and all three of us loved our meals from fish and chips, to sole, to the amazing (vegetarian) burger. The toast with white beans as an appetizer was perfect. My only complaint, and not really a complaint, is that it is a bit pricey. But the value is certainly there, because everything was so good!

Dinner was good. It was a quiet Tuesday night. Didn’t really need a reservation. The burger special was $18 and included a draft beer. It was tasty and well prepared. A little greasy, but good. My wife had fish and chips that were good at about $21. Daughter had pasta that was fine. Added a garden salad that was good. Everything was good. A bit pricey for what we got, but that’s North Park.

We were very fortunate Jayne’s was open on Christmas Eve. We were able to lock in a reservation at a perfect time. The food was wonderful and menu was very descriptive. Service was on point: polite, and attentive. I look forward to heading back on a Tuesday for their Famous burger special. Thanks again guys!

The food and the service was very good. What we (all) didn't like was they had it so dark (6pm) that we had to use our phone light to see the menu and by the time we got our food, the noise level had reached such a pitch that we were almost shouting at each other to be heard 1 1/2 feet away. That is the one thing I really dislike in a restaurant, having to shout during dinner. Please spend some money on some sound absorption panels!!! Oh yes, the prices not so clear on the menu. A "special" that was listed was $18 but the others in the same spot on the menu ran $24 but wasn't listed as such. A bit of a surprise to the person who ordered it. Probably won't be returning.
