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.

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
