This restaurant was a very pleasant find (within our hotel). The food was amazing! Sunday Brunch is a must if you plan on being in the area on Sunday. I am a total foodie and I was so pleasantly surprised. Service was great too. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely return :-)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Been here a few times for drinks and apps. The drinks are very good, the apps we have had are good. The service has always been good. Prices are high/average for good cocktails. Will go back for the pisco sour.

“Delicious food in an awesome setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

We recently ate at JRDN after a recommendation from our hotel and we were so pleased and delighted with this place. It is right on the beach and it is cool and eclectic. The service was incredible and the menu was unique and the food delicious!! It has a great drink menu and our server was very knowledgable and his suggestions were spot on with the entire meal. Make a reservation and request outside overlooking the beach. We would definitely return there if we ever have the opportunity!!

“Outstanding Seaside Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

I'm not usually a fan of hotel restaurant dining, but we were staying at Tower 23 and decided to try JRDN. This turned out to be a great decision! Despite our skepticism, we were glad we took the hostess's suggestion to eat outside on a 60 degree evening. The large heaters kept us toasty, and we were able to dine by candlelight with the sound of the Pacific surf in the background. Tuesday is half price wine night, so we had a nice $30 Russian River Pinot Noir marked up to $75 and then reduced to a pretty reasonable $37. The food was excellent. Salad is a design your own specialty where you choose the lettuce, dressing, and add up to five "goodies," such as olives, blue cheese crumbles, half hard boiled eggs, and dried cranberries. The salads were fresh and huge. My wife loved her salmon, and they even allowed here to substitute sautéed mushrooms for bok choy. My NY strip was done perfectly and accompanied by smoked mashed potatoes that made the meal. The service was excellent and the price reasonable for top quality dining.
