The dining experience at Tarsan I Jane is based on trust. We trust our diners to be open minded, adventurous, and inquisitive eaters. In return, guests can be confident our kitchen will provide a one-of-a-kind cuilinary sampling that draws on local producers, seasonal crops, and a deep passion for mixing modern techniques with traditional cuisine.
Our ethos draws on the Japanese concept omakase or chef's choice. This means dishes are presented as the chef intends, and you are in good hands. Each dish is carefully planned, lovingly crafted, and meticulously presented using the best ingredients available each day.
Our staff will guide you throughout the meal, describing each dish and sometimes even advising you that a dish is best enjoyed with your hands. Our menu is constantly in flux, as ever changing as the Chef’s inspiration and the kitchen’s evolution. We’re constantly experimenting with new flavors, new projects and creations and the menu reflects that.
Food is more than just sustenance. It can satisfy in ways not only physical, but emotional as well. We encourage people to see the ingredients, preparations, and presentations of food as we do -- as art. Particularly, as something uniquely delicious and memorable.
We offer a tasting menu that changes frequently, dictated not only by the seasons, but by what is particularly inspiring to the kitchen team at that moment. There is always an emphasis on wild and indigenous ingredients. The menu reflects our commitment to constantly evolve and our reverence to the incredible product and produce found in the Pacific Northwest.
Guests have two options for dinner; our twelve course menu for $140 per person, or our more immersive eighteen course menu at the Chef's Counter for $250 per person.
On Sundays we celebrate with Valencian paella served as part of a five course meal at $60 per person. Please note that one type of paella will be offered each Sunday. The paella cannot be modified to accommodate dietary restrictions, however the other courses can.
Beverage pairings are available for all menu options.
We serve dinner Thursday through Saturday. We offer a seasonal twelve or 18 course tasting menu with optional beverage pairings by reservation only. Dinner reservations are available Thursday through Saturday starting at 5:30PM. We serve a five-dish pre-set paella lunch every Sunday with our first reservation time 11:00AM and last seating at 2:00PM, reservations recommended.
Reservations are currently taken up to three months in advance and can be booked online. By requiring pre-purchase of bookings, we minimize the frequency of no-shows, and ensure that we create the best possible dining experience at the best possible price for what we offer. Tickets are not refundable and can’t be switched to a different date or time, however, they are transferable to other guests. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, ball game, or movie.
Guests are welcome to bring wines that are not represented on our wine list; however there will be a fee of $45 for each 750ml bottle with a limit of one bottle for every two guests at the table.

Our name is as unique, personal and irreverent as the restaurant itself. Spelled in the traditional Catalan language, Tarsan is a nod to Perfecte’s grandfather’s restaurant where he grew up. It is also meant to represent him, coming from a small village in the Valencian countryside. Jane is meant to represent Alia, who is from the city of Los Angeles. Together they make up the distinct elements of the restaurant’s allure; both rustic and detailed, a marriage of technique and artistic expression.
