What Dear John’s is to steak, Dear Jane’s will be to seafood. Seasoned chefs and entrepreneurs Hans Röckenwagner and Josiah Citrin have teamed up again for Dear Jane's. Taking full advantage of the stunning marina view, the focus is on classic American seafood dishes prepared simply with the highest-quality ingredients by seasoned chefs. From Oysters Rockefeller to Shrimp Louie, Surf ‘n Turf and Crepes Zuzette, the menu hews to those of some of the most legendary seafood restaurants of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. It will feel familiar and upscale, yet updated and approachable.

This sensibility will be on full display with hand-mixed tartare, classic caviar service, and professionally fileted whole fish. The layout of the split-level room and spacing between booths and tables are ideal for this personalized service that is begging to come back in style in this dining room.

    The patio is sublime -- overlooking the marina and on a quiet part of it. This is a tucked-away gem for good food and pleasant dining.

    Friends dinner for dine LA week. Came early for happy hour, and were lucky to score a table. Waited 20 minutes without anyone even addressing us. I had to grab someone to ask for a menu. 10 minutes more with no one giving us the opportunity to order. Ended up going to our table and ordering the same round of drinks we would’ve had in the bar for 20 bucks more. Probably would’ve had another round of cocktails had this not been our welcome experience. The service was OK, but our waiter was not particularly friendly. It almost felt like he was annoyed to have to be there. Everything we had was good, and the special menu was a great value. We would go back.

    Service was great. No waiting for our table and we were early. The food itself not good like the first time we ate there. The Seabass was swimming in a type of demi-glace sauce. Not appetizing at all. The Sand dabs were very good. The Shrimp Scampi had no flavor and the shrimp was tough. Very disappointing & expensive for the quality of food that was served.

    We were seated right away. Ambiance was very easy and relaxed, loved it. Server was AJ and she was very good. We had the Salmon, Ahi Tuna and the Mushroom Ravioli and some sides. Everything was excellent! Even the noise level was low to medium, not an issue. Will definitely return and recommend highly. The only small negative is their restroom. Considering the level of the restaurant I would have expected a much nicer restroom.
