I only ate here once as I was only in town for two nights. The food was good and the service friendly. Only a 10 minute walk from my hotel too.

In a town that often caters to tourists, this thoughtful, good, solid, restaurant with excellent food that is designed to make diners come back. Jane may not be on the cutting edge of new cuisine, but you will always get a good meal with strong service and know that this is a restaurant that does things well and tastefully.

We enjoyed a relaxing four hour meal. The duck breast was outstanding. Everyday the chef changes the duck breast recipe. Next time I would like to try the fresh fish (last night fresh local halibut). We sat upstairs overlooking State St. It could have been New Orleans or Rio - a total escape. The server could not have been more... More

The owners are by far the greatest restaurateurs in SB! So a little history is in order. As a young couple they opened the Montecito Cafe over 30 years ago - In the Charlie Chaplin hotel on Coast Village Road. The cooking was always perfect. They carefully crafted the dishes and then monitored the product to ensure it was prefect.... More

Jane is one of the restaurants my wife and I go to all the time. Everything on the menu is good, but our favorite dish is the Chicken Piccata. So good. The inside is quite noisy, so if you want a quite experience, request one of the small outdoor tables on the upper balcony.

Good menu choices. Nice ambience. Sweet server. Good food. Cute place. Treated my grandson so sweetly. I had the chicken curry salad and it was very good. All of the meals the others got in our party were also tasty. I look forward to coming back here again.

I keep trying this place - only because friends like it. But out of 5 or 6 tries, the food is always awful! There are so many great restaurants in Santa Barbara that I don't quite understand why this one survives!! Last night we went for a pre-theater dinner. So we were there right when they opened. So there should... More
