Enjoyed the meal very much, but the wine list is too expensive. I always appreciate some high-end choices, but would like to see some bottles around $38-$42 price point. This is North Park, should be more affordable.

Jayne's is great. I adjusted
Jayne's is great. I adjusted my table size from 6 to 11 that morning with no problems. Service and food are always excellent. Sit outside! Everyone in our group had a great time, and those that had never been there before were very impressed.

There were 3 of us and we all had "specials"--sea bass and fried chicken. Sea bass was and order of white meat chicken were raves -- dark meat chicken not so much. We'll go back.

We were really impressed with
We were really impressed with the high quality of the food. The service was truly outstanding and knowledgeable. We sat on the outside patio which was extremely pleasant. It was obviously a quiet evening so the noise level was low - I'm surprised they have quiet evenings with food (and drink - they have great beer choices) this good.

I ate at Jayne's during my last trip to San Deigo for work. Service was friendly and quick. I had the bangers and mash, which was excellent. The Italian meatballs was a nice first course as well. It would be a fun place to bring a large group as it is pretty loud and vibrant (in a good way).

We loved our visit to Jayne's.
We loved our visit to Jayne's. We have passed by this place for years and kept saying, one day we will stop in. We finally did and what a little hidden gem! From the food, the ambience and their knowledgeable staff...they all made it a great experience and we can not wait for our next visit. We highly recommend Jaynes.

Excellent - except for the Salmon
Everything was delicious and fresh and really nice... duck gnocci was a standout. Only complaint - my grilled salmon was dry and hardly worth eating. The salad it came with was really fresh and well prepared and balanced and I kept waiting for the flavors in the salad to do something magic with the fish. Didn't happen I'm afraid... I don't know if it was simply a bad salmon or if it was overcooked. No flavor - even a slight marinade or a lemon would have helped. But I will go back.

We return to Jayne's again and again to enjoy their outdoor patio and for their fish and chips!

All a great time with great food!
Eating at Jayne's is like eating at the home of a good friend. The food and atmosphere are excellent. Also, the owner (Jayne) can always been seen at the restaurant, walking around and talking to folks. The best part is getting an opportunity to say hi to her adorable 2yo daughter, Romy who is a fixture at Jayne's.

We have been going to Jayne's for several years and love the food and the ambience. The service and servers are always great. Jayne herself is often around and is so nice. BUT, it seems as if their food prices have really gotten gone through the roof. Four of us ate there last Saturday night and for 2 of us (1 appetizer, 1 entree, 1/2 bottle of a too expensive bottle of French wine - $48) it cost us $94. I personally feel that this is a bit much for the quantity and quality of food we received. This is really just a neighborhood restaurant, a gastroPUB after all, and the prices should reflect this. We're not talking about a downtown restaurant on the top floor with huge rent and other costs. And the wine list has tilted towards high prices.

My husband and I came in to celebrate us killing it at life! The food, service and wine list were all amazing. Ariel made a cocktail for my husband and it was probably one of the best cocktails I have ever tried! Thanks Ariel! and the ambience was just wonederful. I think I found my new favorite restaurant!

Our absolute favorite in SD; highly recommended! On this visit we ordered three of the specials and all three were magnificent. If the mussels with chorizo is available beg, borrow or steal to get a dish! Wonderful experience for our fifth wedding annivesray, we couldn't have been more pleased with the entire experience.

Best schnitzel in San Diego
Jayne's is one of favorite restaurants period, nonetheless when they have schnitzel week, it is the best! best schnitzel in town and home made Spätzle as well with their home made schnitzel and of course excellent beers and great wine.

Our Favorite Neighborhood Place
We've been going to Jayne's since it's opened and love the cozy, neighborhood feel. Everyone seems to know everyone and Jayne makes everyone feel welcome. The menu is consistently good and keeps standard favorites on the menu while refreshing with seasonal dishes. Handcrafted cocktails also change a bit with the seasons so there is always something new to try. Their hamburger is my favorite burger in all of San Diego, hands down.
Check their website from time to time as they often have special occasions going on such as holiday brunch and wine/food tastings. If the evening is warm enough, try to get a seat on the outside patio. It's cozy, great ambiance, perfect for a romantic date and much quieter.

Great food in a casual atmosphere
Fish and chips were the best in town. Service could not be better. Highly recommended.

Been meaning to check out
Been meaning to check out Jayne's for some time now, had heard great things. I put together a dinner party for 6 and the food/ambiance/service definitely lived up to all of our expectations! Wonderful experience, will certainly be back again!

We were here for our anniversary dinner and I had the chicken under brick which was delicious and my wife had the fish and it was OK.

Great food and vibrant atmosphere.
Great food and vibrant atmosphere. Prices a little on the high side for the lack of great service and for a regular dinner out but would return for a special occasion.

Great place to go for a delicious meal& drink.
Really two venues in one place. Inside a real bustling pub.
Patio calmer&white table cloth atmosphere outside.
Specials are just that. Wine list small but expertly assembled.

We come here for their burger and it's evidently what they are known for. Rarely do I take any burger home as a leftover meal. I took my three bites of leftover to have for breakfast the next morning. It is amazing in my opinion. The caesar salad is also something I keep ordering. It's full and fresh leaves of romaine lettuce, each dressed perfectly and topped with a delicious sprinkling of croutons. Wow, we love Jayne's Gastropub!

wonderful weekday dinner
Dinner was really nice on Thursday night. Jayne's dining room was not busy so we got undivided attention. Can't complain. The crab cakes were delicious. Mussels was flavorful , stronger than I'm used to in terms of seasoning but not in a bad way. Frites could have been thinner and more crisp. We were thinking mjoules et frites, the French style. I'll go back there again for sure. We also saw the inviting backyard so we'll probably go again for weekend brunch or lunch.

Jayne's is reliably good
Thank goodness for Jayne's in the neighborhood! They can be counted on for a great experience.

In search of.....
We a e trying all the places listed in the UT article about Fish and Chips. This is our third and the winner so far. Excellent fish, bass not haddock or cod, and chips crispy. Sauteed snap peas as an homage to mushy peas (ick) much preferred. One of us doubted the bass so ordered the fried chicken special. Cleaned his plate! We started with mussels to share and hoovered that. Ended with sticky toffee pudding which was a disappointment. It was three tough Madeleines and gelato with maybe a hit of caramel sauce. Somehow not what we expected, but tasty. VERY NOISY but service is attentive even if the entree, as predicted by the server, was at least 25 minutes in coming. Parking is a nightmare so go on a weekday if you can. We will

Noisy but good
Very popular, so it was loud. The food was interesting, but not out of this world. Cheese plate left a lot to be desired and was quite pricy.Dopped $100 on a drink each, cheese plate, and chicken... in retrospect doesn't sound worth it.

Jayne's had a wonderful menu. Thank you for great food and time.

We went to an early dinner as we had theatre tickets. Jayne's was great. We sat on the patio. It was very romantic and the service was great. The food was amazing and we will definitely return.
