A word from Jane
Jane is a casual American bistro located between Greenwich Village and Soho. Since April 2001, neighborhood regulars and destination diners alike flock to Jane for its value-priced brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Jane also serves as an ideal location for private events, from business dinners to baby showers.

At Jane, the menu showcases an affinity for local ingredients with what New York magazine calls “cleverly tweaked but unpretentious American cuisine.” To complement the food, Jane offers a hand-selected, extensive wine list and seasonally driven cocktails.

Jane is the sister restaurant to The Smith East Village, The Smith Lincoln Center and The Smith Midtown.

Diner Reviews
  • "Decided on a whim to have a weekend dinner at Jane after being amazed by their brunch a few weeks earlier. We both agreed, Jane will definitely be a regular restaurant for us. Everything we've ordered thus far has been delicious - and there are so many more items that sound mouth-watering. Service this time was impeccable as the wait staff was highly attentive and helpful throughout the evening. Again, we look forward to coming back!"

  • "This restaurant has very good food. This is not a place to eat comfort food. Most of the menu items tend to be unique and not run of the mill. Excellent service."

  • "The reviews are accurate. The food was really good with lots of interesting choices and a complimentary drink ( which can be alcoholic after noon). Te bread and service were good. Started with the baked good basket which was good. We split the baked eggs and the frittata, both good."

  • "My husband and I wanted a tasty brunch in SoHo, and luckily made a reservation ahead of time--it was packed on Sunday mid-morning (and the weather was lovely). We were seated right away and received wonderful service. My husband loved his chicken and waffles, and my Sicilian baked eggs (a recommendation from the waiter) were fantastic--the perfect amount of spice. The orange juice was fresh squeezed and the bread basket was rustic and delicious. The ambiance was lively, lots of young people and a few families, good music (not too loud). They also brought out a complimentary plate of fresh chocolate chip cookies and "milk" (milk poured over vanilla bean gelato) for my hugely pregnant self. Highly recommended!"

  • "Crab patty benedict, bread basket and breakfast cocktail of your choice all for $20 is a great deal. Food is quality and well portioned, staff is friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is lively and energetic. Very busy, definitely make reservations."

  • "We have dined at Jane thee times, always for brunch. It's a must-go. The food is outstanding. Our table had Eggs Benedict, the Benedict Johnny, the Benedict Jane, and the Vanilla French Toast. All were beautifully presented and delectable."

  • "I have been wanting to come to Jane for a long time and decided to go for brunch on Saturday with my 4 friends. Had a 12pm reservation; but ended up waiting for more than 45 mins before we got seated! Also the seats were so close that you can actually hear the other table conversation :(. Those were the only part that I didn't enjoy!! Apart from that the food was amazing. We got the bread basket and rosemary fries for the table and bread basket was really good! Had the gnocchi and the famous French toast and they were to die for! All in all the service and food were up to the mark. If not for the wait time, we would be back again!"

  • "Made a reservation through Open Tabe and was seated immediately as we walked in... no wait, although the place was packed. make a reservation for 12:30pm get seated at 12:30pm. Had the Benedict Johnny, great plate!!! taste so good. this will be my once a month Brunch spot. I think I will try their burgers next :-)"

  • "1. I was very impressed at the efficiency in seating guests. However, there is a problem waiting. There is no waiting area especially since Jane has many seats (it has moderate seating capacity). Because of this, customers must wait in a cramped area and it is difficult to leave or enter. It can also be annoying to guests sitting near the bar or those who have tables near the door. 2. The waiters and hostesses are very polite and efficient and service is great. They are casual, friendly, and make sure all needs are met. 3. Portions for orders vs the amount paid is a huge disappointment.$25 for Lobster Benny with two small chunks of lobster and eggs on top is robbery. I understand you have overhead costs but at least add more to the dish"

  • "Was in town for a few days and needed a nice place for dinner with daughter, who is a pescatarian. Jane Restaurant had lots of fish options, was accommodating by taking the bacon off her preferred entree, the restaurant is charming, and the rest of the food was very good (my tuna was a little salty for my taste, might want to mention it to the waiter if you are ordering that entree.) We were able to get 7:30 reservations with just a day's notice, but the place was packed by the time we left. I feel we got lucky! Check it out if you need a place to eat in the Village."

  • "I wanted to do a brunch bday celebration but brunch places usually don't take reservations but u don't want to wait in line with a group... But then I found Jane accepts reservations! I booked through Open Table and requested for an assorted dessert plates with a birthday message and candles for my friend. I confused the party # when I initially made reservations - usually at a popular brunch place like this they give u a hard time and say no to changes but Janes was super nice about it and just accommodated it in a smile! The jane Benedict was awesome and so was the peach Bellini! Dessert plate was absolutely perfect!! They are the best and I will def come back again and reccomend it to any foodie , pretty grls brunch, date, etc! Thx!!"

  • "I was here with my brother and sister-in-law....we arrived around 7 and the place was nearly empty. Within a half hour it was filled. The noise level got progressively louder but not intolerable. Food was great....gnocchi appetizer was very tasty. Strip steak, lobster and homemade squid ink pasta were the chosen entrees and were all wonderful. I was really impressed with the service....even the guy taking away water glasses after the meal was approachable and chatty. I cannot recall another restaurant in NYC where I felt that the wait staff took time out to chat a bit. It made the experience much more enjoyable."

  • "As I had been warned, it was very crowded with lots of people waiting. Luckily I had made reservations and was seated right away. The staff was very attentive and the food was very good. It was the perfect setting to catch up with an old friend who I hadn't seen in years. We were well fed and therefore well prepared for what turned out to be a high impact day. I will certainly be back as the food and service was very good and the location is so convenient."

  • "Everything about this place was perfect! The wait staff were all super friendly and provided excellent service. I had the Vanilla Bean French Toast with strawberries, which was the best French toast I've ever tasted, and the portion was huge. We all got the pastry basket as an appetizer and that was delicious as well. This place was overall, a very cozy, and enjoyable spot to have a celebration with friends. This will be my new go-to place for brunch. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "Came here for brunch on a whim after wanting to try this place for quite some time. I have to say it did not disappoint - the brunch was definitely one of the top we've had in NYC. My partner had their famous Vanilla Bean French Toast and it was delish! The flavor was spot on - enough vanilla essence without overpowering everything. Texture was great with a nice crunchy edge followed by the soft middle. I had the Benedict Johnny - basically Eggs Benedict over chicken sausage on a bed of grits, and it was definitely another winning dish. Poached eggs cooked beautifully - sauce was an excellent consistency. Drinks are also included in the cost of an entree! Can't go wrong here - looking forward to returning!"

  • "i have been here for both brunch and dinner and both were so so amazing. brunch was probably the best meal though. definitely coming back here again, but you definitely need to make a reservation at a least a week in advance for weekend brunch."

  • "It took making a reservation 4 weeks in advance, but I finally scored a table at Jane. Worth the wait - I initially made the reservation for 6 people, but when a couple of extra friends wanted to join, the staff at Jane were happy to accommodate us (we called ahead). I was nervous our now-party-of-8 would be squished somewhere in the dining room around a table for 6, but that was not the case at all. We were seated downstairs, where the larger parties seemed to be, at a table that probably could've seated 10 - it was great. Our waitress was super professional, nice, and attentive - and did not rush us when we lingered for a little while finishing our cocktails (delicious bloody marys, by the way!). Everyone raved about the food!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I had reservations but my seated more than 30 minutes late. The hostess was very rude and wouldn't tell us how long it would be or apologize for the wait. Our waitress was very nice and helped me through the menu and explained the specials of the day and the best things on the menu, along with her recommendations. She was very attentive; however the restaurant itself was packed and very crowded and uncomfortable. I felt rushed the entire time. The good was good, not excellent but it was good. The portions were not too big but enough to fill me up. I didn't felt the portions justified the costs, however. The food was neither god enough or big enough for the prices. In the end, it was a decent experience but I don't know if I would go back."

  • "Jane is my favorite brunch destination for a lot of good reasons. My decision to try it for dinner left me sorry for the choice. While brunch at Jane is packed with people, We were the only patrons at a 5:30PM dinner. When we left at 6:30 there was one other table occupied. My crab cakes (the Tuesday night special) were disappointing. The crab had not taste, the cake under-seasoned, although cooked well, and there was such much mayo in the prep that it was almost spreadable. My friend's steak frites was okay. The service was excellent which is understandable because the server had nothing else to do. I will be back but not for dinner."

  • "I've gone to Jane for brunch 3 times now, and it never lets me down! I absolutely love the fun sunday morning ambience, and as packed as the restaurant is, the service never disappoints. The brunch selection and quality of food is phenomenal, so you'll definitely see me back there again to eat those delicious "house fries," which basically taste like heaven in my mouth."

  • "I have only eaten brunch at Jane. It never disappoints. Tasty take offs on Eggs Benedict with lobster or crab, thick cut french toast, omelets, and just regular eggs are well prepared. Complimentary juice the last time we ate there. The service is competent, friendly, although coffee and water refills were slow coming at our last outing. Totally love Jane. Reservations are always a good idea on Sunday."

  • "We had a 9:00 PM Saturday reservation for 3 people and did not get our food until 11:32 PM. They said the "kitchen was backed up," but our food came out 3 minutes after we threatened to walk out (something I have never had to do before.) I have enjoyed Jane in the past, but unfortunately doubt I will be going back, despite how good the gnocchi may be."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Nothing special, and certainly too pricey for what it was. Food was average at best, but service was very chaotic. Had to ask for bread (although it was being brought to other tables that arrived well after we did); had to ask for spoons for the bouillabaisse whose broth, by the way, was excessively salty to the point where it detracted from the seafood itself, which was otherwise quite good; had to ask for steak knives for the steak; both dishes arrived without these utensils. Given the price point ($25-$35 for entrees), servers should have been far more attentive. Overall the place was just "ok" but with the myriad of eateries in NYC that we haven't tried, there is no reason to go back to this one."
