We had a delicious dinner at Jane. We had the squash soup followed by the Greek and Asian entree salads and finished with chocolate cake. The Grigio wine went well with all courses. Service was excellent as well. Perfect dinner!

A sequel to the family`s Montecito Cafe, this is consistently a very good restaurant with polite service and a varied menu to please most palates. The prices are very reasonable. It`s not as wine friendly as I`d like= poor stemware, limited selection of class wines.

We often go here just for the coconut cake. It's delicious! Try it, you won't be disappointed. The food is good, the dessert is great.

I really enjoyed my meal. A nice mushroom soup on the specials menu, and a fabulous chicken picata. The wine-by-glass option of the Babcock cabernet (2010) was a very good selection.

Still, this restaurant is not up to its high potential. The wine was served in a glass inappropriate for red wine, and a request for a proper glass was met with news that this was the only glass they had. A good wine was left short of its proper expression for this reason.

The service was slow. No two ways about it. We spent 90 minutes on a 2-course dinner, finally deciding against dessert for fear it would take another 30 to 60 minutes. The food was slow arriving, but I presume that to be the kitchen's fault. Salad and soup should not require extended delivery time.

The wait staff was friendly and courteous...perhaps overly so...but failed to live up to words. A request for the check was met with "immediately', but still took another 10 minutes to show up. In total it took us about 15 minutes to get out of there from the time we wanted to leave.

Surely this could just have been a bad night for service. It was a great night for food, and I would go back for that alone...though would probably tell the wait staff up front that I want to move the meal along at a moderate rate.

Extra points for ambiance.

Many places have great service but struggle with food quality. Jane does not have that problem. Give them a shot.

We enjoyed the quite yet festive and cozy atmosphere. We both had the sliced grilled chicken breast in a wonderful, light yet tasty sauce with fresh veggies (brocolini on the night we were there).
