Ambiance is so fun...decorated colorful with tequila bottles throughout. Sat in the enclosed patio area and the sun and wind coming was amazing. We got a kick out of the fact they have a public phone in the hallway to the restrooms...they should build a frame around that as a collector’s item. 😆

Service...Juan Carlos was great as he made solid recommendations and the rest of the staff was helpful and all seemed to be happy.

Food....the octopus is so tender. The shrimp avocado appetizer dish is so healthy and flavorful. Highly recommend both.

The food is excellent. Dining room I think is being updated because it was rather odd. Waiter cleared the table when we stepped away from the table. Waiter was great!! Overall great experience besides all that.

Had a friends’ get together for dinner and to watch the sunset. We sat on the patio and had delicious cocktails with dinner. The sunset was lovely and dinner was so good! Highly recommend JRDN for any occasion big or small.

We love JRDN, and have been there many times, graduations , birthdays and anniversaries. . The menu had changed, seemed smaller, probably due to Covid/reduced staff issues. Brought two local friends who had never been there but had been wanting to try JRDN. Derrick was an awesome server. Drinks were great, valet service great, staff was very welcoming. Unfortunately. I was very ill later that night, through this am. Must have been the clam chowder, which was my main entree. I was the only one who had it. The other people were fine. And we had shared appetizers.

Our server was fabulous! She was fast, knowledgeable, and such a sweet heart. I didn’t like a drink and I never send a drink back because I feel terrible doing so but without hesitation she took it back and got my something else. Her recommendation was perfect. Food is always incredible!

Great food, great service, parking is a nightmare. If valet is open, then it's no problem. Problem is that valet is hit or miss. If it's closed you're stuck with street parking. drove around for 15 minutes and found nothing.

Great food, and met the executive chef/new front of house person and gave him feedback on the new menu for restaurant week - because it was awesome! But they asked, so we shared our gentle thoughts around improvement. And it was my birthday, too, and thy were so sweet about it. And COOL lights on the table. Just loved it.

It had been 2 years since we visited this restaurant and there was much change. I made a reservation for an outside table and yet when we arrived (and for the next 30 minutes) there was no outside table available. The food was mediocre, the choices very limited, and the noise level was so high that we couldn't carry on a conversation. I won't go back.

The food was fantastic, but the service was slow. We visited twice for dinner during the past week (both on weekdays), and there were big gaps of time between starters and mains.

When we arrived at the parking lot, we were told the Valet parking was closed. That would have been good to know in advance. We have dined at JRDN many times prior and had no trouble with the parking. Finding parking during Spring Break weekend was a mess! We were seated outdoors, although the tables were not 6 ft apart. I didn't feel safe during dining. My hamburger was loaded with salt. Our server was pleasant but she had way too many tables to serve. Not sure we'll be back any time soon.

What a great experience at JRDN! My guest and I sat on the patio all afternoon drinking wine and people watching. We had an amazing server (shout out to Arnold) who took great care of us and was super attentive. Our brunch was amazing and the ambiance can't be beat. If you have a guest in town, be sure to make a rez here and relax on the patio, you won't be disappointed.

GRÉÂT service. Our servers were cheerful, fun, very efficient ..
Everyone was fabulous. And , at the end,someone who appeared to be a manager cheerfully asked us how our brunch was!
We had a beautiful outside table tucked in the corner and it was perfect. Outstanding brunch food.
Can’t wait to go back!
