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... More

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).

We happened upon Jane while strolling down State St. and we are glad we did! The restaurant had such a cool vibe- wood floors and nice lighting, great service. Our entrees were PERFECTLY prepared and arrived in a timely manner. Not to be missed.

Ideally situated on State Street. The interior layout, design & decor of this restaurant are fabulous. The service was terrific: our waitress was the perfect blend of helpful & involved but respectful as well -- not hovering but nearby. The food was delicious and their wine selection for our lazy Saturday luncheon was great. Will be returning!

Many people we met recommended this restaurant for lunch or dinner. We easily got a table on a Wednesday night. Great selection of entree salads, many with seafood (trout, ahi, scallops); Jane also had a good selection of pasta dishes; chicken, duck and steak entrees. Loved the coconut shrimp appetizer. Nice atmosphere. Would be good to have more than one... More

I prefer Jane for lunch but dinner is fine as well. They have great entree salads and in general, the food is top notch. Fun atmosphere but watch out, they are closed on Sunday

I reviewed Jane last November. But now (May 14) I went back, this time with 15 people, a rowdy bunch that can be the nightmare of any waiter/restaurant. And they didn't bat an eyelash! The food was great, the service impeccable, the wine very special. How does Jane do this, serve such good wines at such affordable prices?. And my... More

I can't get enough of Jane when in Santa Barbara. We have tried many of the items on the menu and have not even had an average meal, they are always very good. The service is excellent, they have a good wine list , and good beers. Deserts are very good. I like their pastas and the steak is super.... More

We have eaten at Jane 3 times and each time we agree that this is a very good casual upscale restaurant. This time the veal was perfectly done and the pasta and vegetables were nicely done. The limited wine list always has something interesting. We will return. Reservations are necessary.
