Baby shower celebration
Fubulousnsishi and wine with outstanding service with a smile! Consistent and great vibe, ambience and scenery, both inside and outside:)
Got good poisoning and was very sick after eating sushi there. They were also out of avocado and said there was a shortage!
Beautiful place on the beach. We waited 15 min for a waiter but once we had him he was great!
Food excellent, atypical Thanksgiving choices made it nice for everyone with a variety of choices.
Great food, great service great atmosphere.. loved it
We have loved JRDN in years past but were disappointed this time. They went through a huge re-invention last year and we missed the 'old' menu (some items are the same) but a couple of our favorites were gone and the ambiance has also changed.
This restaurant was really pretty. It was dark on the patio if you sit against the “window”, and you can’t see out. All you can see if your reflection, not the water or people on the boardwalk. They had a light blue glowing block on the table was was hard to see the menu , so we moved one table closer to the restaurant and it was perfect lighting. We went to try the tomahawk which was recommended, we asked how long it takes, she said 45-60 mins followed with “but were out, we ran out yesterday”. Bummer!! We settled for the Rib eye and the skirt steak! We asked for bread & butter in the meantime. That part was not tasty at all. The bread was stale and had a weird texture, the butter was mixed with something, so when she came around to see if we wanted more butter, we said there was still some in the basket, no thank you!! Altho we were looking forward to trying the tomahawk, Both of these choices were delicious! Food was delivered fast also! Waitress was great, she kept checking on us. We will have to make another date, and make sure they have the tomahawk for us
Enjoyed a great meal with good service! Good choice for California cuisine and people watching.
We stayed at the fabulous Tower 23 Hotel and were thrilled to dine at their beachfront restaurant. We had dinner there one night - sushi, 2 breakfasts - enjoyed the avocado toast and eggs and had lunch one day - salad with grilled chicken (grilled chicken not on menu but they accommodated request without hesitation). Prices are great, food very good. Location perfect!
Jared, aka Lenny Kravitz, was awesome.
Love it anytime for any occasion love the sunsets ❤️
Always good! The brunch is always very relaxing with the view. Food is excellent.
We used to live in SD and moved two years ago. We went to JRDN often and loved it. We did not like the changes to the menu.
Noisy inside, nice on the patio. Ford was delicious, service was great.
We were down in San Diego for the Notre Dame - Navy football game on Saturday. It was going to be a busy weekend of football and tailgating. We wanted some time near the beach, so I booked Friday’s lunch at JRDN. It was perfect. Wonderful food and wine with superb service while sitting outside enjoying the beach views. My friends also thoroughly enjoy this experience. Thank you. We also were very appreciative of the 2 hrs complimentary valet parking since parking in PB can be challenging.
Fantastic place, the Tomahawk steak is a must!! Would definitely come back.
Loved it. Have walked by it and never stopped. So glad I did. Had a delicious meal outside with the sounds of the ocean. Everything we ordered was perfect
Great food and great service, though I was disappointed. I was really looking forward to the surf and turf roll but they were out of wagyu beef by 6:30 p.m. We were also looking to have some Oysters; however, those were not available either.
Our server was excellent! We told her we only had a short time frame before we had to be back at our conference, and she was very kind and accommodating of our needs.
Great location, interesting menu, and solid bar with good mixed drinks. But over priced for the food we actually got with crowded seating. "Good" overall but not very good and not outstanding.
We had a great brunch at JRDN! We had the Lobster BLT, Biscuits and Gravy, Chicken & Waffles, and the Chicken Sandwich - all of them were delicious. The service was great and we had a beautiful view of the Pacific Beach Pier. Will definitely be going back!
It looks like a restaurant in South Beach Florida. They had no oysters which was a big disappointment. The sushi was good but not memorable. Same with the cocktails. I'd go to the bar again but it didn't make me want to try the restaurant.
The food was amazing. We ordered almost all the appetizer offerings, including a sushi roll. For our entreé, we ordered the carnitas plate for the table and we had enough for 5 people, plus some! The service was excellent, as our server made sure our table was always tended to. I will be returning here for sure!
They were out of several items listed on the menu (although our reservation was early in the evening). I received my dinner ten, or maybe even fifteen, minutes before my husband received his.
Food was great. Waiter was great. The remodel looked good.
We've been there many times, as it is great ocean views and valet parking with 2 hours free with validation - the $12/hr. afterwards is a bit steep. The food is always great, and during the week it's not too crowded. Our waiter was great, he spent time with us on the food selection, which ended up being perfect. The only comment I have is he never came to refill our drinks.
Great location and outdoor seating. The calamari and ahi tuna nachos were crispy and delicious.
It used to be the place to go... now the food sucks, they couldn’t get a hamburger right... service is sub par, we were sent to wait 1/2 hour for a table on a half empty retaurant on friday afternoon because “they didn’t have more than one server”.
Food was delicious and worth the price. Staff is friendly and quick to tend to your needs.
valet parking is easy to overlook but the place is great and food is always delish!
We arrived at JRDN for a reservation and were seated promptly. Following this, though, nothing arrived in a timely manner. Several tables around us that arrived long after received their food ahead of us. We ordered drinks and appetizers at our earliest opportunity (about twenty minutes after being seated) and didn’t see them out for nearly an hour. Likewise, our entrees took almost another 45 minutes.
It seemed based on our server’s “I took your order, right?” that our ticket had been lost, and expectations were never set. It seemed to be a busy night but rather than reaffirming that, the staff insisted that everything would be “right out.”
The food itself was mediocre at best and absolutely not worth the price. During our long wait we joked about getting up, leaving, and going to ramen across the street which would have easily been a better option.
Overall a really nice place with good food. I had a berry fruit salad. The berries tasted stale, like they were sitting in the fridge uncovered and picked up the taste of other foods. Quite unappetizing. The avocado toast was very good.
We have been back in here for years
Won’t be back
Server told us executive chef in vacation and it showed
2 hours for basic items
Food is mediocre
Service- we’ll he was more inside then out until we paid
A horrible experience
Want my money back
The view - always amazing but unless you ate their for drinks and apps
Avoid as a special occasion
It was my best friends 25th birthday and she requested a nice
Food was far from special. Shrimp cocktail 🍹 while large was basically blah. I am a fan of dog patios but don’t believe a restaurant serving meals at this price need to have a dog friendly area, especially when the dog barked off and on for ten minutes
Would not recommend nor return
Fried chicken sandwich is bland
It could use a Cajun type spice or...... anything!!
Nice place . Had Breakfast 🥞🍳 . Dinner is more expensive. Nice people watching
JRDN was very good. Our server, Sophie was great. The menu is interesting with some unique items. The food was well prepared. The wine list was very good. Overall, we were very pleased.
Great view, excellent food and service!
