This is our favorite restaurant in Santa Barbara. Along with the sister JANE - The Marketplace in nearby Goleta, every dish is tasty and affordable with friendly staff. Don't miss it when you are here!

Dined at Jane last night with my wife. Both of had delicious salads, shared the eggplant and olive tamponade, and each had a lovely dessert (soft serve vanilla ice-cream with caramel and toffee for her and a thick chocolate mousse with whipped cream for me). She also had a perfect glass of local wine and I had a nice iced... More

We had lunch at Jane and thought it was good but not great. Very popular and always busy. Service was excellent and it was reasonably priced.

This place is pretty and unpretentious with a nicely varied, yet very reasonably priced and not overwhelmingly diverse menu. I saw several items I would have liked to try but settled on steak sandwich with 1/2 side arugula salad with house vinegarette, and 1/2 fries. The split sides was the helpful suggestion of the server. They both complemented the sandwich... More

I've been going to Jane for awhile now and every visit is a pleasure. There are no long lectures about artisanal construction or hidden sources. Yet the food reflects a simple commitment to fresh local ingredients prepared simply with a deft touch. The scallops never disappoint. The staff is ready at hand with impeccable timing. Kudos to the Jane crew... More

Happened on this place. Got in just at end of lunch time. Great food. I had Jane burger while grandchildren had pizza which they loved.

Jane has been around for awhile and when you eat there you will know why. They have a wonderful staff and simple menu followed by great food. A must for any visitor or local. I had lunch with an old friend and loved it as usual.

Our family of 4 had a delicious dinner at Jane while on vacation in Santa Barbara. We sat at our own table in the main area downstairs (there are two balconies upstairs with a few tables on each and a large, communal table in the center of the main downstairs area). The service was excellent, as was the wine and... More
