Jane has two locations, one downtown on State Street and another in Goleta. We have eaten at both and the food is consistent between both. The State Street location is much harder to get in when there is a show at one of the theaters nearby. The hamburger has a reputation as being the best in Santa Barbara, but we didn't try it. My wife and I had the duck. It was prepared perfectly and the serving was so large that we split it. The wine selection is not the best. Actually, we have been disappointed in that aspect of this restaurant. The service is excellent. The atmosphere is much better at the Goleta location than State Street. State Street is one large room that is fairly noisy and on the night we were there they kept the front door open which cooled the restaurant off more than was comfortable. We have found the Goleta location to be quieter and more comfortable.

A very simple, understated restaurant on the Main street of Santa Barbara BUT what an amazing place.
The restaurant is a family restaurant and they have held on to the traditions of quality in their ingredients and simple fare with a twist; so successful!
We canceled all our other reservations and went back here for lunch and dinner during our stay in this lovely town.

I have been to Jane's many many times. It seems there is an attitude at Jane's. It goes between being haughty to slightly rude. I thought this was a one-time only thing, but I have been there so many times and have noticed a consistent rude attitude. Whether we were in a rush and needed the check right away, or needed to move our table away from the front door draft or wanting to upcharge our lunch selection. Just don't feel comfortable eating there anymore.

We dined at Jane the night of my friend's birthday having just arrived in Santa Barbara. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and we were seated upstairs. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter even placed candles on the cake for my friend at a moments notice. It was a night to remember!!!!

Great local restaurant, food and menu change with the season and it's always fresh and well prepared.
Reservations are recommended.
