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

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

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
