For years Jane was my wife's favorite restaurant, but recently we have noticed a real discrepancy in the food quality. We visited twice in 2 weeks and on the first visit, the food was perfect. The calamari was literally the best I had ever had....More

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.

We recently enjoyed a lovely dinner at Jane,, with quick and friendly service, and a helpful, smiling waiter! The atmosphere is charming, and the food is always special!

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...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.

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)....More

Hi! Your restaurant is absolutely adorable! I was wondering if it was possible to either rent out the restaurant for a few hours for a wedding dinner, or basically have a reservation placed for all your seating for dinner? I am not sure how many you can seat, but we are a small party and wanted to have a meal after getting married at the courthouse :) Thank you for any information you can get back to me with! Thanks again for your time! Heidi
