Seldom do we eat in the restaurant of our hotel, but this was really nice with good food, very convenient, pretty friendly folks and relaxing. Outside seating has good views, sunsets are great, can be a little noisy, We are headed back.

A friend and I had breakfast here during a recent visit to Pacific Beach. The food was very good - a little expensive but you're also paying for the location and view. Our server was pleasant and attentive. I wish we had been there on a weekend so we could have tried the brunch.

I enjoyed dinner with my daughter JRDN on a recent business trip to San Diego, CA. She lives in San Diego, and she selected this restaurant for us, as she lives nearby. We started with JRDN salads, handcrafted to our specifications, and the salads were quite good. My daughter then enjoyed the day boat scallops entrée, and I enjoyed the... More

Devine weekday breakfasts and wonderful weekend brunch! Complete with mimosas! Very classy, but casual. Highly recommended!

The night times are high-energy from what I hear and quite the hip scene..... but I'm more on the lay-low, lunch with friends. Either are great at JRDN. I love the beach-side dining to enjoy the people-watching along the PB boardwalk. It's fun to gather with friends because everyone can find something to enjoy on the menu. I like the... More

JRDN must have new owners. Bad service, limited menu, managers very argumentive. We have been to JRDN almost every time we have been to San Diego and it used to be our favorite place. Very disappointing. Won't go back.

Best brussel sprouts that I have ever had! Cocktails and food were great. Sitting looking at the ocean right by the boardwalk.

Watched the sun set from this beautiful restaurant under the warmth of the outdoor heaters. Shared the colossal platter with succulent crab, shrimp, lobster, oysters and clams. Great special; half off any $40+ bottle of wine on Tuesdays so we shared two. Definitely a beautiful place to take out of town guests for fresh seafood with views!

We were excited to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday at JRDN (pronounced Jordan). Since we are the Jordan's it was a quirky and fun way to celebrate this special occasion. I called months in advance and made the reservation and we planned a trip around this highly anticipated dining spot. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. We had Saturday brunch and the... More

True fine dining in a slightly more sophisticated setting right on the shore. Excellent and creative food, great service, good wine list - a nice contrast to Garnet bar / taco / pizza scene. Just know it comes at a price.
