    The waiter told us he almost forgot about us. He told us he wasn’t able to make modifications to the drinks as they’re pre made. And yet, We received drinks later than the people who sat after us.

    Exceeded expectations! We ordered Ahi Nachos and 2 different sushi rolls and everything was amazing. We ordered 2 drinks, a cucumber one and a blood orange one and they were both so light and refreshing and perfectly balanced, not too strong or sweet. Reservation was definitely needed, the place was packed. We were seated right away, greeted promptly, our server was outstanding! I wish I remembered his name, he was so good, efficient, personable, professional and attentive. Food came out really fast which was a surprise because they were very busy. The only thing I could possibly complain about was the noise level. It was really loud, definitely difficult to carry a conversation with my boyfriend sitting right next to me. But it might not always be that way, we were seated between a bachelorette party and a big group but I don't think they were all to blame, it seemed pretty loud by the bar too, outside looked like it was more quiet, but as the night went on the noise level did subside. This would not at all denture me from going back in the future, who needs to talk when your mouth is full of great food and drinks!

    I love good food and service. I come her often because of that. For the price if the meal i believe matched the quality. I’d love a little higher end like grass fed and farm to table but it is just a preference. I also walk away very happy. Starting with the valet, Bryan, was exceptionally polite, quick and friendly. Everything flowed from there. I did write Bryan’s Name on the back my parking ticket so I would remember because he was exceptional. Set the tone for a whole experience

    Love love love this place! Why three loves? Food. Service. And location. Just doesn’t get any better. This is my daughter and my favorite place. And we eat at a lot of places. Sushi is to die for, but you can get other things in case you’re with somebody who doesn’t eat sushi. I would hear every day if I was closer

    We reserved a table outside. They placed us at a table with a horrible draft that we had to request to be moved to the next table by the boardwalk. They rejected saying that they don't have enough servers in the area. Then they gave the table to some newcomers. We were moved inside. We had to wait more than an hour for our food. The mimosas were so bad I had to order extra orange juice to get rid of the cheap stale champagne taste. The chicken sandwich that came was so bad that we had to go to Popeyes after the experience to clean our palate and stomachs. The ham had uncooked cartilage in it. The waitress had an attitude. Worst experience ever.

    Sat outside with excellent views of the sunset. Great people watching. Our server, George was attentive. Food was delicious. I had a sushi roll. Hubs had the brisket with the pureed potatoes that he raved about. We shared the cheesecake and nearly licked the plate. Ambience was perfect for our date. Not too stuffy... casual and tasteful. Would come back.

    JRDN is rather loud but we ate outside which was much better. Our table was right by the boardwalk. I had the halibut which was dry, but tasty. We go a lot of sides and they were all good.

    Always the best place to eat when having a beach day in San Diego! The food is great and good value! The view is amazing!!! Drinks are perfect! The parking is validated for 2 hours when eating there so gives you a little time I check out the beach after your meal. I love this place! Staff is always friendly!

    This was our third visit to this restaurant. We ate there twice a year ago on vacation. This time the food was ordinary...nothing compared to last year. We had the fried calamari which was good. And a caesar salad with salmon. The salmon was spiced with something similar to Old Bay seasoning--and tasted farmed. Grilled to well done. Not recommended for foodies. This is a place to be seen, not heard. The noise level was like a bar. On the positive side, the view is spectacular; this is a restaurant for tourists. Eat at the restaurant, then take a walk to the Crystal Pier.

    For Ocean Beach, this is a “nice” restaurant, which should tell you something. Food is overpriced. Some of the worst sushi I’ve ever had. Very slow service. Restaurant is beginning to show its wear and tear. Skip it.
