So California too! The house salad was so fresh and just delicious, with a unique vinaigrette dressing. For... read more

We sat at the bar, by choice, instead of waiting for a table. It was fine, except there was no bartender, all of the back bar lights were off, so it lacked welcome/warmth. Food was good for sure - fresh, fun, menu made with thought.

It was rumored this restaurant was owned by the owner of one of my favorite Montecito restaurants, the Montecito Inn, so I tried the same dish, a lamb sausage pasta, and was not disappointed. My wife had a chicken dish and raved. I'm not a fan of aldente pasta and forgot to ask for it to be cooked through, but... More

I'm always impressed at the wealth in Santa Barbara and on a weekday lunch this place was packed with affluent ladies meeting for salads. The food was pretty good so I can't blame them ;-). But it was an interesting set. The breads, buns, are all made on site and wonderfully fresh and delicious. Soup was also very good.

We stumbled on this quaint place while looking for a dinner spot. We lucked out when we were able to get right in at 8:00, because it was the day after Christmas. We had chicken piccata and veal Marsala with fresh vegetables and pasta. Each bite was delicious. We will be going back during our 5 day stay in Santa... More

Dinner on a Friday night, buzzy atmosphere but friendly and attentive service. Great menu choice, all of the food was delicious, well presented and great wine list to compliment our selections. Lovely restaurant.

I had a special of swanky seafood stew in a tomato like broth so exquisitely delicious. The birthday person had truly tender pork tenderloins and the wine was quite a compliment to the dinner. We were at a long table on the first floor at the opening of the restaurant at 5 pm.When we sang Happy Birthday the guests fell... More

The atmosphere is charming - high ceilings, bright skylights - just lovely. Service was truly outstanding and the food was terrific. Also, parking was a breeze - right out front. Our lunch at Janes was absolutely a highlight of our trip.

We were warmly greeted by the hostess when we first arrived, which is a big plus in my books. Our waitress was very attentive and our order and bill were spot on. My associate and I both had salads, Cobb and BBQ Chicken, both were tasty and well priced for Santa Barbara. The only draw back to the entire meal... More
