“Fresh food, European feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The tables are a little close together for my taste but it's more of a European feel. The California fresh cuisine is very good and they were very accomodating to our loud girls' night out.

“Reliably wonderful!”

When visiting friends ask for restaurant recommendations, I always suggest Jane and they are never disappointed. Always a treat, always delicious.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

Despite the high ratings, we were very disappointed. The lamb was overcooked, the seafood stew with coconut milk was thin and too mild. The duck was OK, but nothing really special.

“Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

A very nice place that is very popular. I don't remember what I had but it was really good. I have been wanting to return and will do so soon. My husband really enjoyed his food as well.

“Bad Day at Jane”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

Wow - what a disappointment! Had a great experience in Sept so went back again for lunch - yikes! Disinterested / distracted server, and really bad food - steak paninin arrived barely warm & looked raw - sent it back & it came back to the table looking like a "steak-um" - Chicken paninin was literally soaked in pesto and fries were limp & greasy. Wine was nice but should have been @$12/glass. Such a bad experience - sadwares are done with Jane & won't return however charming the atmosphere.
