    One of my favorite PB/SAN restaurants with a creative seafood oriented menu. Nice wine. Love the outdoor patio. The service is wonderful. Philippe our waiter was thoughtful and attentive. We'll be back!

    Table for 4, outside on terrace, extremely good service, waiter very knowledgeable about the food, extremely pleasant and helpful. Really one of the best places to eat at PB. It's busy and casual but the quality of the food, drink and service was very good.

    This place is great outside, but due to the materials used by the interior designer, it gets very loud as alcohol flows into guests' blood!

    Got a couple appetizers and couple rolls. All solidly great. Service was slow, so much that we had to ask a different wait staff to put in entree order because ours hadn’t returned for a long time and no one ever really checked in to see if everything was ok. But folks have off nights, so would definitely try again.

    We had an enjoyable lunch. The view and atmosphere were terrific. The service was very good. We ordered the mussels to share which were outstanding. The rest of the food was above average but nothing to write home about.

    Wound up eating on patio to curtail noise level inside. Heaters made it ok. On my original reservation, I requested George as our server. He was there. They said we couldn’t sit in his section cause we were a party of 3 instead of 2. He was only serving 2 tops?? Really? I wasn’t happy and Martin was our server who was personable but slow…….. not happy with service.

    Great ambiance and our go to restaurant when we come back to San Diego. Friendly service without being over the top! Drinks are generous and the food is very good. (big portions though) The only slight fail on the food was that the tuna nachos were very salty...the wontons had a lot of salt on them...an easy correction though.

    Very accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. Our food was really good and I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. The only issues were a loud table and some undisciplined kids. Overall, an outstanding value since the food was so good and the prices were reasonable in an attractive environment!

    The seating was very good. Adele our server was excellent. The only complaint was my side of yams was not hot, and only lukewarm at best. I didn’t want to tell her for fear of waiting too long to get a replacement. Otherwise the price fixe meal was very good. My only suggestions would be for more side choices, and more dessert choices as the 2 desserts was satisfying, but not excellent. The cookies were good but the 2nd choice was just okay and NOT special. Thank you for the input.

    Came here for Christmas Eve dinner. Appreciated the staff being there but that was it. Only thing good was sushi. Two of us ordered 70 dollar steak that we were pretty sure was microwaved, it was tough. It was literally a steak no sides nothing else. I personally ordered the scallops three for 38 dollars. They were cold and soo salty I couldn’t eat them. Daughter ordered a ceasar salad with chicken it was very soggy with too much dressing. Drinks were mostly ice at 16 dollars a piece. Our bill was almost 500 dollars and we without tip and it was worth about 20 dollars. gave it two stars because the sushi was good but others side it would be 1

    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.

    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.
