Jane is the place to go when you are in the mood for a predictably and consistently good meal. It is not haute cuisine, but is good honest food.

I went to Jane for dinner with colleagues. It was a fairly large group (~15) & we were seated at a lovely long, communal table, in the centre of the restaurant. It was a very comfortable space, as the table wasn't too wide, allowing for easy conversation (i.e. didn't have to shout to be heard). The room is beautiful with... More

Early Monday PM dinner, seated in the warm balcony on a cold night. Server was personality plus, food was perfectly prepared (strip steak & duck) and timing was perfect. No wonder they were full by 6:30. Very intelligently affordable wine list. Good value.

This highly rated restauarant deserves the praise. We really enjoyed it. My husband had the veal and I pasta. One of the best meals during our month in Santa Barbara. Go early, the restaurant gets busy.

Upper State St. has several of the best restaurants in Santa Barbara and Jane is certainly on that list. We were seated on the back, upper loft, which was a perfect location away from the busy entrance. Our servers were outstanding—friendly and perfectly attentive. We began our meal with a shared order of excellent steamed clams in a delicious broth... More

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.
