Jane has a great menu, many items that we can agree not to agree. What I mean is dishes that my wife is wanting and dishes I want. We can find a menu that satisfies both our hunger needs. Reasonable wine list, great deserts! fun place good staff!!!

When dining at Jane, you should take your time to savor your wine and dinner. The food is excellent and the wait staff were great. It is priced appropriately for what it offers. So if you want to join friends and family over good food that adds to the evening, I heartily recommend this restaurant. I'll be going back again... More

Jane had a great ambiance. Fun, energetic, great decor. The food was excellent. My Salmon was served on a wood plank- cooked perfectly. The other five diners thoroughly enjoyed their meals: salads, duck, chicken piccata. Desserts were great, too. I would definitely go back.

Jane is one of those places that you know when you walk in it is going to be good. It is on State Street, consequently I was a little skeptical , but the locals definitely eat here. Everything was good and the portions were large enough that we skipped dessert.

Very good food. I had an excellent salad and swordfish sandwich. A bit odd that my sandwich bread was square, like from a Trade Joe's loaf, but the taste was great. Pricing is in line with a upscale ambiance. Our server was just OK... a little too obvious that he was miffed that we did not order drinks. My one... More

I've been to Jane many times and it never fails to impress. From burgers, to salads, to their outstanding chicken piccata (my all time favorite) they do everything well. Make a reservation on the weekends or for special occasions but you can often walk in on week nights and not have a long wait. Jane is definitely one of my... More

Jane is a fun, yet simple restaurant on the main street of Santa Barbara. The menu consists of a nice variety of salads, entrees, pasta and burgers. They serve only wine/beer, no liquor. Our server was pleasant and efficient. Strongly recommend reservations on the weekends as those without were told they would have over an hour wait. Our table was... More

We loved our lunch here. Great service, very solid food and a welcoming environment. Eager to try it for dinner. Really accommodating with kids, though most diners were adults.

The duck breast was sensationally prepared. If you get a chance try her goat cheese pancakes with sour cream and caviar! To die for!

Dinner was relaxing, good food, great service very nice atmosphere. We were upstairs and could look out the window to the lanai and also look over the restaurant. Very good value for the meal and would go back.
