We had lots of meals in lots of restaurants in Santa Barbara, and hands down, Jane was our favorite. Small but comfortable, Jane is charming little restaurant. GREAT ambiance. We had a lovely waitress, and really great food! Fantastic wine list as well. I will certainly return to Jane - in fact, it will be our first reservation when we... More

Food is B - B+. We had lasagna (OK) and chicken piccata (very good). Ambiance is really nice. We ate at one of the two 2nd story balconies. I'd go again . . . maybe.

We stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. We both had the Turkey Club Salad. It was so nice to get real turkey instead of chopped deli turkey. There was a girl training with our server, who did an excellent job taking care that our water and tea were refilled and making sure we... More

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
