Excellent Italian cuisine, great service and courteous/friendly staff. Small parking lot, however, if you are strolling in the village of Carlsbad, it is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner.

Finally had some great food on the west coast on our last night. Great pizza and pasta!! Pizza very similar to what you would find on the east coast. Nice little place in Carlsbad village. Definitely recommend it!

Love this place & when in Carlsbad always eat here 2-3 times. Great, fresh pasta & fish selections daily. The place is cute, but the size of a shoebox. Don't let that fool you. The way this place pumps out food from a closet is amazing in itself. Always busy, outdoor seating available. Love their bread basket & homemade Italian... More

Visited Jay's as we usually do and the consistent quality of the product and service still exists. Have been coming here for over 15 years and it is always a hit. Little overpriced but so is everything else near the beach !

I went with friends, a couple, we ordered one order of the Pescatore for $30.00 and shared it. They brought us each a salad to go with our meal. That one order was more than enough for all three of us. It had crab, shrimp, clams, mussels, calamari and halibut in a yummy white wine garlic sauce with linguini. With... More

Had Mr doggy man with me, so was looking for a nice lunch on a dog friendly patio. I had no idea what I was in store for when I stumbled upon Jay's Gourmet Pizza and Seafood. Pretty easy street parking available even for a busy summer weekend in Carlsbad Village. Super laid back dog friendly eatery right near the... More

Went for dinner with my girlfriend Christina. The staff was professional and nice, the food was great - huge portions! Manage to get a bottle of wine half off on their weekly deal, always a plus :) I would go again....

Don't let the location fool you. People stand in line to enjoy the eats here and don't mind sitting in the parking lot.

We spend at least one week every year at our timeshare in Carlsbad, Tamarack Beach Club. And we always have a dinner at Jay's Gourmet. This evening we split the special, sea bass with calamari with a pesto sauce. The portions are generous so splitting is not a problem. Dinner comes with a salad and garlic toast. It was delicious....
