We had swordfish / seafood stew and a nice bottle of Cotes du Rhone. Shared a pecan tart and ice cream for pud and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It is a very pleasant restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. The service is good.

Jane has two locations, one downtown on State Street and another in Goleta. We have eaten at both and the food is consistent between both. The State Street location is much harder to get in when there is a show at one of the theaters...More
