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

The dining environment is warm and embracing. We were seated by the fire place which was especially nice. Our server was engaging and proficient. All of our food was obviously prepared with fresh ingredients with great care. The shrimp and ahi tuna salad couldn't have been more perfect. The pasta and linguini was sauced just right with an added spark... More

Used TripAdvisor and found Jane, 1311 State Street, walked 5 blocks after parking on Ortega and Chapala; we loved it. Lucky for us there was a table at 6:00 on Tuesday night. Every table was reserved. Some brought their own wine. Cater more to academia and retirees. We saw take-outs and delivery. Two of our seafood dishes were cooked perfectly... More
