"Last Night's Dinner"

On our last night in Santa Barbara we didn't have dinner reservations and just decided to wing it. Decided to give Jane a try and they were able to seat us, didn't get the best table. The upstairs area was closed not sure why maybe because it was a weeknight so we were seated right by the front... read more

We are here while visiting Santa Barbara and had an excellent meal. The seafood and vegetable stew was delicious. The wine selection was very good. The decor was charming. They support local growers. The staff was so pleasant- made for a very nice evening

Service definitely needs training.... We ordered water and got bread. When we ordered two salads we got one. WE never saw the wait staff unless something was be delivered. No how is it or can I refill your one and only water. They are proud of the burgers but I have had better.Many more choices on State street.

a charming decor with nice upstairs seating overlooking the restaurant---even balcony tables, but a little noisy on the street. Excellent food with many fine dishes---the specials are really special particularly the pork loin roast---a fine place that gets busy later in the evening also

Jane is a very busy restaurant so we always make reservations. I like dining upstairs as it is quieter and conversation is easier. Delicious dining is available on either level. Staff is helpful and pleasant. Two theatres are nearby and the staff is helpful in getting you served in time for a performance. However the dishes are very tasty and... More

This is one of those places you hope you can find when you travel. Every single item was spectacularly good (we passed around the table and tried them). The service was amazing, the location is in the heart of a fun part of State Street, and most importantly, the food was among the best in town.

Jane, run by the same family that owns/runs the Montecito Cafe, has a totally different restaurant and experience from the Montecito Cafe. We went there for lunch. Sat up on mezzanine -- highly recommend the four small (two person each) tables outside on the balcony. SB weather usually cooperates -- rain is something we now only can dream about. The... More

We ate a late lunch at Jane based on recommendations from Tripadvisor and the concierge at our hotel. We ordered the Half Papaya & Dungeness Crab Salad, a burger and the Fettuccine & Chicken Pasta Bowl. We were disappointed that it took so long to get our entrees (about 40 minutes), since it was past the busy lunch hour and... More

we had dinner at Jane on a beautiful spring evening and were lucky enough to get a table on their outside balcony. It was quaint and charming. The food at Jane was really tasty and perfectly prepared. My wife and I both got steaks that were done exactly how we wanted. The sauces that complemented the entrees as well as... More
