We were vacationing at Crystal Pier and found this place! We went. 3 times in 3 days. Can I say Bloody Mary meal on a stick! Plus avocado toast and the market salad. Excited to return again!

Our birthday brunch was great. The food was terrific, try the lobster roll! Short rib hash was wonderful, lobster blt was great, fish and chips were great. Also the steak and blue salad was great. The only compliant was the french fries that went with the dishes that we had were not crispy enough.
Jared was a perfect server, very attentive and we found out that his family had come to surprise him and they were eating next to us. Lovely family. All in all, a good experience!

My wife and decided to take in a last sunset at Pacific Beach at the end of a 10 day trip to San Diego County and Palm Springs. We looked around for dining options and JRDN was literally right there. We sat outside and finished watching the last light of day. The food was great and the wait staff attentive.

They are always quite slow here with the food meaning it’s easy to polish off the wine too quickly and then you have to order more. Last night was no different and it was only sashimi

I tried the very fresh small menu for breakfast twice. The chilaquiles are mush, but the eggs benedict are great. Excellent service. Fantastic view of the ocean and great people watching on the trail by the beach with either inside or outside tables.

I started dining at JRDN in 2005. It was my favorite restaurant in San Diego and go to spot for years. My most recent visit was my first time back in several years. The presentation, quality and taste of the food is still amazing and above average! The restaurant is noisy but always has been and that’s just part of the experience. The service use to be as good as the food and I’m sorry to say that wasn’t the case on this visit which is unfortunate. Great food, beautiful sunset but not the same experience I enjoyed for years. Unfortunately based on the service and the “bad taste” it left in my mouth and especially my girlfriends we won’t be returning.

Location is good. Food could be better. I would recommend it for the views and ambiance. I reserved a table through OpenTable, but once arrived they had given all the good tables to walk ins. Not cool.

One of the three sushi dishes we ordered was a bit soggy. The service was very good. The atmosphere great! We were there for dinner and I want to go back for lunch or brunch if they have one, to see the whole beach atmosphere. Parking very easy, valeted with hotel and get it validated by the restaurant.

Ours was a most excellent experience. Mid-week, and a special occasion probably brought us a little extra attention, but it was pretty darn good at any price. A perfect evening from the weather gods helped, but again the real credit must go to management and the team that put it all together. Kudos! We will return. There’s no better recommendation than that.

If you have ever wondered if your special requests using Open Table can be met, let me tell you that with JRDN, they blew me away. May special request was "It's a secret. Proposing at sunset". The entire staff was eager to serve, the table selection and service were incredible, and the surrounding patrons enjoyed the show! Now one of my faves in the US - JRDN.

The view/location is fantastic. Unfortunately, the service was not so good. It may have just been an off night, but there were 2 of us and one of us was never brought his entree. The food runner brought my food, and then we sat there a while waiting, and finally I started eating so it didn't get cold. We never received the other entree. Our server did not check in with us until much later asking if we wanted anything else, at which point, we told her one of us did not receive their meal, and we just wanted the check at that point. Had she checked in periodically, we might have been able to correct this. It is unfortunate since reservations were made for this place a few days in advance for a birthday dinner. The atmosphere was great, but unfortunately, we left disappointed.

Timing was terrible. Wine arrived after the appetizer. Three of our 4 meals were not good. Lobster was dry and one meal arrived 5 minutes after the others. Beautiful view of the ocean, but that's where it ends.

Great local food. We got the lobster rolls and fried calamari - both were amazing and fresh. Drinks were excellent as well. Just in town visiting but will go back if we make it to PB again.

Came for brunch and it was great food & drinks! I got the Lobster BLT and a Bloody Mary. Very tasty! The noise level was very high and there is a high energy vibe to the restaurant. We had very good service. I loved sitting outside even though it was hot and the umbrella only provided some shade in the table but not in my side. There’s valet parking and easy access to PB beach.

I have always admired the architecture/design at the restaurant and hotel and the setting, right on the beach is outstanding. We ordered simple things, sadly, my eggs benedict--which I happily custom ordered via the choices on the menut--was cold! I didn't mention it to the server because my friend and I were under time constraints for our time together. I also had to ask for a spoon! and sweetener for my tea. But I would return to the restaurant anyway.
