Actually, everything is in the subject. I relly liked the food, srevice was fantastic and it was quite late for Santa-Barbara, whe we came for dinner (aroubd 21.00). All the nearby restaurants refused to serve us.

This place is different in a good way. A two-story restaurant, it has an unusual faire and excellent service. You pay for that, and the real estate being on State Street, but it is well worth it. Not for the budget-minded, but wonderful dining if you are willing to spring a little bit for the wonderful atmosphere this quaint, epicurean... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here on a Saturday night and were able to get an upstairs table without a reservation. We shared a delicous salad and the flat iron steak entree and both were amazing. We also had the flourless chocolate cake which was great. Will definitely return here!

We had a delicious dinner at Jane. We had the squash soup followed by the Greek and Asian entree salads and finished with chocolate cake. The Grigio wine went well with all courses. Service was excellent as well. Perfect dinner!

A sequel to the family`s Montecito Cafe, this is consistently a very good restaurant with polite service and a varied menu to please most palates. The prices are very reasonable. It`s not as wine friendly as I`d like= poor stemware, limited selection of class wines.

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!
