    Awesome from start to finish!!! We make it a point to dine at JRDN every time we visit SD. The food is spectacular and the dessert to die for. Lobster rolls were my fave this visit but haven’t had anything I didn’t like. They even have a kids menu now which makes it so family friendly! Highly recommend this gem by the ocean.

    This might have been an off night for this restaurant. The pre- fix Thanksgiving meal was not outstanding. The dessert was lackluster and the turkey a bit dry. The appetizer soup was cool, not warm.

    The ambiance and the service were great, and the food was good. Loved the tuna nachos, and enjoyed the sushi rolls. Inside was really loud, but outside under the heaters was perfect and almost quiet. I’d recommend this place

    I love going to lunch with friends at JRDN. It has free valet parking, exceptional food, choice of seating to accommodate every guest, and the service is wonderful. So many of my friends who don't live in PB don't know about it. It's a well kept secret. I will be going back very soon. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    JRDN never disappoints! Every single bite of every single dish is outstanding! Wines are perfection and service is truly top notch! The sashimi is off the chart. Only other place that measures up for fish is In Hawaii 🐠🐟🐡. I would have to say this is the best food in PB.

    Whilst service was excellent and of course the location, the rib eye was just awful - cheap cut and certainly inexperienced chef. Their sweet and sour Califlower - not good. It was douced in that sauce. A simple Drizzle would have been suffice. Sushi and drinks were good.

    Plenty of food to eat if you order the salad and sides. The main course was a tad bit on the skimpy side. I can only taste two types of cheese in the "Dope Mac & Cheese". The dessert and coffee were great to end the meal. As far as the ambience went they need to get a better sound system. Throughout the night it sounded like broken washing machines running endlessly.

    Exceeded expectations! We ordered Ahi Nachos and 2 different sushi rolls and everything was amazing. We ordered 2 drinks, a cucumber one and a blood orange one and they were both so light and refreshing and perfectly balanced, not too strong or sweet. Reservation was definitely needed, the place was packed. We were seated right away, greeted promptly, our server was outstanding! I wish I remembered his name, he was so good, efficient, personable, professional and attentive. Food came out really fast which was a surprise because they were very busy. The only thing I could possibly complain about was the noise level. It was really loud, definitely difficult to carry a conversation with my boyfriend sitting right next to me. But it might not always be that way, we were seated between a bachelorette party and a big group but I don't think they were all to blame, it seemed pretty loud by the bar too, outside looked like it was more quiet, but as the night went on the noise level did subside. This would not at all denture me from going back in the future, who needs to talk when your mouth is full of great food and drinks!

    I love good food and service. I come her often because of that. For the price if the meal i believe matched the quality. I’d love a little higher end like grass fed and farm to table but it is just a preference. I also walk away very happy. Starting with the valet, Bryan, was exceptionally polite, quick and friendly. Everything flowed from there. I did write Bryan’s Name on the back my parking ticket so I would remember because he was exceptional. Set the tone for a whole experience

    Love love love this place! Why three loves? Food. Service. And location. Just doesn’t get any better. This is my daughter and my favorite place. And we eat at a lot of places. Sushi is to die for, but you can get other things in case you’re with somebody who doesn’t eat sushi. I would hear every day if I was closer
