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
  • "Good food (the brick-pressed chicken was moist and delicious), friendly service, widely spaced tables, an excellent spot for a long late lunch with friends at reasonable price. Instead of trying to get rid of us after more than two hours, the manager came over to ask if we were being taken care of. We were."

  • "We have been going back to Jane for several years now. Their salads are amazing. Same for the gnocchi. We are addicted to the steak frites (sp?). And we've always enjoyed the desserts. I recommend the milk and cookies. They also have homemade sodas that are worth trying. We are already looking forward to returning, and we just went last weekend."

  • "The Brunch menu proved difficult to make a decision. We had a really nice server. The atmosphere was open and inviting. The "Everything" Crepes are out of this world!"

  • "The good: Perfectly poached eggs & Crispy potato fries, delicious! Very attentive service! The not-so-good: Breakfast corn dogs' batter was 'freshly made' but the ingredients may have been sour :( Jessica, the very nice hostess, took it off the bill & gave us a basket of pastries. Thank you! :)"

  • "I love this restaurant especially for their brunch menu. My favorite is the Benedict Jane, always delicious. I make reservations because otherwise there is a wait, and I always get seated on time."

  • "The food was fresh and tasted divine. The only bad thing was I wanted more of everything! Our waitress was well informed and wonderful. The gnocchi's were done to perfection and the cherry pie melted in my mouth. Loved it."

  • "Ok...I've read the reviews, looked at the photos and expected a wonderful Sunday brunch experience at Jane but the famous vanilla French toast was just alright. I've had better in LA for half the price. The Benedict Jane was average (and I know my Benedicts) and the potatoes were too crispy. I'm really seriously bewildered by the hype of the reviews of the amazing food--did I go to the same restaurant? Sorry, Jane, but I'm not impressed."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Just a great place for two friends that want to catch-up and not feel as though they are imposing on the staff...we wanted to take our time and enjoy the evening. Everything was just precisely as we ordered, when we ordered and how we ordered. Just a perfect evening with wonderful food...service and care."

  • "Sorry, Jane was my neighborhood go-to place for brunch. My recent experience was disappointing and makes me worried that Jane has seen better days. The pleasant waiter seemed harried and clearly was more eager to wait on others than us. Entrees took 50% longer to arrive than usual. Benedict Jane was predictably good but my dining partner's chicken and waffle entry was dreadful. An overly seasoned chicken cutlet and dense I-swear-it-had-been-frozen waffle. The chef needs to check out a real chicken and waffle restaurant and revise this entree. Staff could not have been nicer about offering another entree but we just wanted to leave. No offer to comp anything on the bill, not even the extra juice."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food was good by New York-standards (aka I've had better meals, but it was still near the top of the list) and the interior was so cute. Our waitress was awesome too. So nice, very attentive, but not overly so, and she made the experience that much better. Absolutely recommend it!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I've been to Jane numerous times for brunch and it never disappoints. The food and cocktails are delicious and the service is consistently high quality. I've tried every eggs benedict on the menu and usually order a vanilla bean french toast for the table. On my most recent visit I tried the brunch crepes, which was on the lighter side and a great option if you're starting off with a french toast app! My friend ordered the steak and eggs which she was also raving about (it comes with a mac and cheese croquette). A little bit of a pricier option but if you're willing to pay for a good meal, this is a must-visit. Don't forget to make a reservation, otherwise you could be waiting up to 2 hrs for a table."

  • "Jane Restaurant was a great way to start the weekend. I had the Vanilla Bean french toast which was made to perfection. My party member had the lobster eggs benedict and it was equally wonderful!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We knew to order the gnocchi before we went and were not disappointed. We finished it off quickly and wished we had ordered more. We found ourselves even craving it the next day! The steak salads were good though too, so the meal overall was incredible. We were celebrating a birthday so enjoyed a sampling of desserts. Once again, even this was amazing! We would definitely recommend Jane!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I had never been to Jane and decided to give it a whirl since the reviews looked good. They were right. Watermelon salad was fresh and delicious and the gnocchi was creamy delicious. The main courses were a lobster roll and scallops... Another nice choice for both. My friend and I enjoyed hours chatting and so did the rest of the restaurant. I never felt rushed and very welcome. I am definitely recommending this place and going back. It's a keeper !"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Reserve online before you go. The wait is usually really long. Jane also doesn't sit you until all of your party is here. They don't have a waiting area indoor, so waiting outside in the winter is brutally cold. I went as a group of 6, so they sat us downstair along with other family with kids. The ambience is a lot better upstair. The food was hit and miss. I had the signature Vanilla Bean French Toast, and it was great. I tried what my other friends had and they weren't that impressive. Bottle line, it's supposed to be famous and the French Toast are good, just don't expect anything else. I probably will not go back again. There are many many NY brunch places with a lower price that is better."

  • "My husband, 3 year old son, and I went for brunch on Father's Day. I made reservations ahead of time and we were seated right away. My husband ordered the classic eggs benedict (somes with homefries) which was delicious. I ordered scrambled eggs w/bacon & homefries, which was also great. The bacon was extra thick cut and cooked perfectly. We also ordered a basket of the glazed donuts for the table which I highly recommend. My only complaint was there was no options for my 3 year old other than to order off the regular menu. I paid $11 (plus his juice) for scrambled eggs and bacon ,which he probably ate 1/4 of."

  • "Jane has staying power and has survived changing trends in New York City. It seems to always please - no matter the age or sex of the guests. Beware, however, of long lines and lively chatter on weekends around brunch-time."

  • "Went here this past Saturday with a few friends for brunch. The service was excellent, the bloody mary's were spicy and strong, and the food was delicious. Good for any occasion!"

  • "I am a frequent diner at the jane (couple of times a month). All of a sudden their menu changed. No more complimentary drink, no more extended drink menu, running out of items at noon.... Not to mention to the food and drinks that were ordered were sub par. Service was great that was the only positive! For a lavish more expensive brunch there are much better options... They should go back to their old ways as maybe that's why it was less crowded on a a Saturday.... Too bad because it used to be a gem"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We arrived early for our reservation on a Tuesday (about 20-30 minutes) and they seated us within ten, and we had our orders in by our original reservation time. Staff was very friendly and brunch portions were very filling. Love the special soft drinks as an alternative to the alcoholic ones. "

  • "The waiter was completely inattentive to our party, and forgot our requests or to bring us what we have ordered several times. it is frustrating when you need to complain every time, and it is even worse when after each complaint you get prompt service (we waited a long time for our food but the moment we pointed this out they brought meaning our dishes were ready and waiting for us in the kitchen). That said the food was good and the situation improved significantly once the manager took charge of our table... But to be honest, I doubt I will be recommending this place."

  • "Had brunch here on Sunday with a party of 7, and everyone raved about their food. We started with a pastry basket filled with tasty donuts, scones, and muffins, plus fresh-squeezed OJ, tea, and coffee. The brunch menu was diverse with many savory and sweet offerings. Standouts included the French toast--a huge portion of custard-like triangles--and the crepes filled with eggs and smoked salmon. Sicilian eggs were very flavorful and the chicken and waffles were gobbled up. As a large party, we were seated in the basement, which lacked the ambiance of the upstairs dining room, but the service was attentive and we really enjoyed it."

  • "Usually go there for brunch, which is always fabulous, but decided to try it last night for dinner. The cavatelli with braised beef ragu was scrumptious, as was the flatbread, pressed chicken and the gnocci. Service was good and it was not overcrowded - especially nice for a Friday night. Will definitely go back and would definitely recommend this place."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Had a weekend to myself and came here for brunch. The biscuits and gravy were fantastic--haven't had them prepared this well in a long time. My one negative would be the bacon--overly smokey and unnecessary with the large entree portions served. I would come again."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Get the Vanilla Bean French Toast and any Eggs Benedict dish. You won't regret it. Each of the brunch dishes comes with a complimentary fresh-squeezed juice (grapefruit or orange) or a cocktail (on Sundays, only after 12pm by NY law). So the prices seem higher but really... they're not. Also try the strawberry butter they provide with the complimentary bread - but don't eat too much of the bread!"

  • "We made reservations for 1pm on a Sunday (highly recomend it) even still we had to wait about five minutes outside which wasn't bad, the weather was really nice and we were seated. To my surprise we were cramped up between two other tables and it was really awkward at first cause you can hear each other's conversations and it's the only reason I could've give this place a 5 star but as soon as the complimentary brunch cocktail arrives you forget all that I had the apple champagne which was on point!On to the food and service,I asked for the Mac and cheese croquette for starters,the croquette was delicious I had the Jane Benedict which was amazing but more so were the home fries that came with it.Our waiter David was the best!"
