JRDN proved a very appropriate luncheon spot in Pacific Beach, practically on the beach. The glass wall protected all from excessive sea breezes. The lunch menu introduced a tuna 'sandwich' without bread; delicious and smart. Service was very courteous and caring. And: tea was served with honey!.

We went to JDRN's for the 3rd time for our anniversary. Every year for the last 6 years we come to Crystal Pier to celebrate. This year the restaurant was disappointing. I made reservations over the phone telling them when they asked that the occasion was our anniversary. Usually that is celebrated with dessert with written wishes on plate and... More

In town for business, taking a stroll along the beach and watching the novice surfers trying to catch a wave. I was looking for a nice spot to eat breakfast and had passed a number of snack shacks, packed to the rafters when I chanced upon JDRN. Wow - nice seating and a menu where taste and freshness matters. Seafood... More

We stayed at Tower23 and visited the restaurant at least 3 times during our stay - once for the fabulous Chef's Tasting menu for my birthday and couple other times for drinks. The food and service was amazing, they had great happy hour specials (including 1/2 priced bottles of wine on Tuesdays!) but after happy hours, cocktails could get quite... More

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

I was staying at Tower 23 Hotel so I actually utilized this bar and restaurant a number of times over five days . 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
