My daughter was treating her dad for a belated Father’s Day. We had soup, salad and sushi. Destiny was our server. She was fun and professional.

We went for a special occasion and knew it would be more than we usually spend for a meal. While they have a nice and clean venue with a beautiful view, we were not impressed with the service for the high menu prices. A manager had to bring us water after asking how we were doing. I would not go back, but my sister's salmon salad and mother's scallops were good...just too expensive without the attantion to service I would expect.

We went for lunch and we’re NOT disappointed! Chicken sandwich was a tad spice for the wife (she is not big on Spivey). Our friends had the blacken tuna sandwich and tri tip sandwich. I had the yellow fin tuna. The three of us were very happy and pleased with the meal. Can’t beat the venue and location. Yes, we will go back again and again and again!

We chose JRDN for a special event dinner for 2 during a vacation trip to Pacific Beach in San Diego. We couldn't have been happier with the results. From drinks at the bar (first come / first served, btw) with Armando through dinner and dessert at a table just inside the glass wall along the boardwalk with our server George, both the food and the service were exemplary.

We were especially delighted with the shellfish platter. It was served as a two tiered tower which was a dynamite presentation. Highlights were the shredded crab salad, and the fresh Pacific oysters. The platter is very nearly a full meal for two, or a perfect appetizer order for 3 or 4.

My wife is a big fan of carrot cake. The offering at JRDN may be the best she ever had.

In addition to the assigned servers, JRDN uses roving floor managers who check on all diners along with the servers. This results in a noticeably elevated level of attention and service.

We only wish we lived closer and could visit more often.

The service was awful. Waited 30-40 for our table and we had reservations!!!! Our waitress was overwhelmed. It seemed like everyone was. Took forever to get a drink. The food is very filling and thick. Every dish at our table tasted like curry. I like curry, but it shouldn’t be in every dish. Glad I tried it out but the experience was not what we expected at all.

Our meal was very tasty but our steak could have been cooked a little more. Asked for medium and it came more rare to our liking.

Misguided by website and menu. Does not explicitly state that breakfast is only served on weekends, we drove all the way down there from Julian, an hour and a half, to find out they didn’t serve brunch.

Only my second time there, but the food is really good and the large range of choices (sushi to steaks)
It may become a regular stopping point

My biggest complaint is the amount of time it took for our server to first acknowledge us and take her order. And then it took an extremely long amount of time for us to get her food. We got there at noon her food came out to us by 1245 so from the time we got there the the time we got our food was 45 minutes. My friend that I brought to lunch had a doctors appointment that she had to get to so we didn’t have as much time as we had hoped to spend together and eat. I brought her to lunch there because she is starting chemo therapy in a week and II wanted to take her mind off of what she is going to be going through.

We had the most wonderful experience at JRDNs! From the efficient, valet, to the sweet hosts who set up the perfect table for us, to the incredible service and food, we were just floating on air when we left.
I was meeting an old friend for a special brunch and our server never rushed us, or made us feel like we weren't welcome to sit there and catch up on old times. Thank you again for the wonderful afternoon! We will most definitely be back.
