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

The atmosphere is a little rustic, indoors but reminiscent if being on a patio. We both had the chicken piccata , which came with squash and fettuccini. It was tasty & light. I would definitely come back & order it again

I had a papaya and Dungeness salad...very good. My husband had the fish and chips and thoroughly enjoyed them. We loved the freshness of the ingredients at Jane. The wine selections by... More

It was our first night in town, and first time in this beautiful city. We did not have a reservation, but were seated fairly quickly for a Saturday night. We ordered mussels, coconut shrimp and caesar salad. Caesar had (surprise) tomatoes, which I always add at home. Mussels were tender and delicious. The shrimp were also well prepared and crunchy...
