My friend loves this place and says they have the best burger in town. It was an afternoon lunch and not too busy,. Plus, it was quiet,. Score!!!! I had a salmon salad. It was yummy and a good portion. My friend was not disappointed with their burgers, The service was on point and I would come back again. The... More

Wanted to try this place after viewing TripAdvisor reviews - as well as a few local recommendations. What the heck is the hype about??? Tried their fare with four - had a papaya crab salad - mediocre - lackluster dressing with boring one of a kind lettuce. Also, the chicken piccata - chicken pounded to a 1/4" of blah -... More

My friends and I were in Santa Barbara for the day from our cruise ship and went to Jane for lunch. It had been recommended by a friend of a Facebook friend so we thought we'd try it. It was so much fun! We chatted with the owner, Jane, during our meal. What a sweetie. She told us about her... More

I went to Jane for lunch today. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. The decor is cool, the service is always attentive and the food is always excellent. Two of my favorites are grilled chicken & Brie sandwich and the trout salad. Burgers are a fave of the guys in my office, and none of us... More

Went their for our last night on our recent trip and was very pleased with our meal. Despite it being a "quiet" week in SB and a Monday night, they were turning people away. Very lovely setting, quite upscale yet prices were very reasonable. Notable was their Sangria and veal piccata. Very attentive service, fairly priced. Some of our dishes... More

This was probably the best restaurant we ate at in Santa Barbara! Varied menu and great wine! We sat on the little balcony upstairs overlooking the street and enjoyed our dinner.

I have eyed this place for 2+ years, but never got around to eating here. So I was looking forward to trying it when I was in town for business. The space is nice. Upstairs tables with a few outdoor seating options. Spanish decor inside…it was very nice. I listened to other people in the restaurant who were clearly regulars…... More

We dropped our daughter off at college last week, but first had an amazing dinner at Jane. We wanted a variety of choices, plus a Santa Barbara style restaurant. We were delighted with both. My husband and I each chose fish-mine was a halibut served on a pesto polenta. My husband's was also halibut but served with a berry sauce.... More

Jane is one of our favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. It's small, charming and the atmosphere is so comfortable. They have a great wine list with many available by the glass. Menu appeals to everyone. I love the filet mignon and the chicken piccata (my favorites) but salads, burgers and sandwiches are also very good. Be sure to leave room... More
