We loved it here. My boyfriend wanted a steak so we went to JRDN on labor day. They were out of 2 cuts of beef but the steaks we got were amazing. Mussel app also beyond expectations . Service was fantastic .

Our wait staff, George, was outstanding, as soon as we arrived we were seated promptly and George made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant he was so attentive to us. The food was incredible and the presentation was just as great. Complements to the chef over and over again as we continue to rave over... More

Drinks and small plates before 5 were a safe bet on Thursday, Friday night all we could get were drinks. No available tables for appetizers or anything. Crazy busy. Saturday was a repeat . Sunday was a... More

The quality of the food is great, service is fair. The setting is okay, but the bar is quite loud with no wall in between the restaurant and the bar.

We went to the restaurant and the view is nice but the service is so slow, our waitress Megan was rude asking us to leave, she said there was a reservation coming, food is mediocre and it is expensive. So first and last time here. Manager said he was Very sorry but didn't do anything.

I met a dear friend here for dinner and drinks while visiting for business. I arrived early and enjoyed the ceviche app and a glass of wine at the bar. The outside area and bar were full of beautiful people having a great time and beautiful views of the setting sun. We had lamb, crab, steaks and plenty of champagne.... More

I went here with some friends this past weekend for brunch and it was a great location, with a view of the ocean. We were able to valet, which was great considering how limited parking is. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the short rib meal. Both were very tasty. I also got a margarita that... More
