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

I don't usually write repeat reviews, but Jane is really that good. We recently visited with family, and were, once again, blown away by the outstanding food and service. I go back to Jane every time that I have an opportunity to visit Santa Barbara, and I'm consistently overwhelmed by how good the food is. It's not complex, unapproachable cuisine.... More

This restaurant is located on State Street, the main street in SB. The service was good. The food and wine list were just OK. We expected more out of this place because of the backstory of the restaurant. But really it was pretty expensive for the quality of the food. Everything we ordered was overcooked. Dissapointing.

Our group had a myriad of entrees and everything was very good. I had the seafood stew. Very tasty and generous portions. Waitress was spot on with her recommendations. Highly recommend
