Jane is one of the best upscale restaurants in Santa Barbara, where classic American dishes and fine wines are plentiful. A well-lit dining room with specials on the chalkboard and flower centerpieces at the center of every table keep the dining experience vibrant and classy. Jane also offers outdoor seating with views of Downtown Santa Barbara, which can be enjoyed year round here in sunny Southern California.


Jane is located in the heart of Downtown Santa Barbara on State Street. Guests of Hotel Milo can easily travel to a meal here by taking a ten-minute drive or taxi ride. The restaurant is within walking distance of some of the city’s most sought after attractions including the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Alameda Plaza.

What to Try

A local specialty, the grilled Pasilla chiles are a dynamic appetizer option with swiss cheese, fresh cilantro and tomato vinaigrette. Those looking to share something with the table should try a bowl of steamed local mussels served in white wine and light cream with tomato, basil and garlic on top.

Moving to the main course, Jane has a number of enticing seafood options including a Grilled New Brunswick salmon served on a cedar plank and a fresh fish-and-chips option served with a chipotle ketchup and creamy dill dip. There are also plenty of meat-based dishes like the grilled Indiana duck breast and veal scallopini. The restaurant also serves a number of burgers, sandwiches and pasta bowls.

While indulging in your meal, also be sure to ask the server about the number many locally produced wines on the menu, and zero in on the blend that best serves your taste.
