JRDN was near our hotel in San Diego, so we had one lunch and one dinner there. The lobster, bacon and tomato sandwich was decadently good. Later we tried the squash soup, baby brussels sprouts fire-roasted to perfection and fresh seafood. Great wine list. Servers were very attentive. We found the prices to be comparable to others in the area around the hotel and the food much better.

If the location/views weren't enough, the food is almost as awesome. Best kale salad ever, fantastic brunch, and great service! Located right on the beach boardwalk in Pacific Beach, this is a gem of a restaurant!

This restaurant was truly the embodiment of what I expect from Modern California. Simple, fresh produce prepared in a stylish, yet uncomplicated way. Food that looks good on the plate, sounds interesting and tastes wonderful. The salads are very good, and service is good too. All this in front of a wonderful beach view. Paradise for some!

The views over the beach are good and the decor is well presented but the restaurant excels in its food. The menu is limited (a choice of 8 main dishes of which 5 are steak) but what they do is simply sublime. As a large group we ticked all the different steaks and each one was beautiful. Great meat cooked sympathetically. The patio heaters allow al fresco dining without the inevitable chill when the sun has well and truly disappeared.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the whole evening flowed well. Although a little daunting on prices compared to the bar food offered nearby the food is beyond compare.
