Also good for vegetarians,Also good for vegetarians, vegan, and gluten-free...6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, well conceived and serveEarly, pre-theater dinner on a Saturday evening before the crowds. Greta was lovely, attentive, and helpful. The food was creative. Gazpacho would have been better had it not been completely pureed; the dish needs some crunch. Lovely classic Caeser. My scallops were perfect: seared on the outside and just barely cooked on the inside. My lady love's strip steak was tender, just as ordered. Nice well constructed vegetable melange accompanied both dishes. Love the wine pricing policy for which every glass and every bottle (except for the premium stuff) was the same price. We sat in the window: my favorite spot.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMForgotten Gem!Friend's who hadn't been to Jane's in years thought it might be nice to try again as they loved it way back when. Maybe because so many new places have opened since then, they forgot to go back but without a doubt, it was worth it and will be one of our regular places again.
The food was outstanding, loved the atmosphere (apparently a great date night place) and the drinks and service. Can't recommend this place enough...!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGret FoodGreat meal, friendly service, great drinks says it all!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Favorite of oursWe love their great grilled salmon salad with fresh ginger. We are, also, happy to be able to take our own wine on Wednesdays. The staff is good and friendly.
Unfortunately, the outside dining has no shade from the evening sun.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMKane's is quickly becomingKane's is quickly becoming our fav restaraunt in Chicago.

I'm going back for the dinner menu!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMComfort RestaurantJane's markets itself well as a comfort food restaurant. This is a great restaurant to go to when you want an easy dining experience. It's close to home, easy parking, comfortable atmosphere, variety and yummy food on the menu, great selection of wine and beer, and the service is quick and dependable. This is a comfortable place to go when you just want to eat out without any hassles.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time I go to Jane'sEvery time I go to Jane's and want to order a wine, my first and second choice usually are sold out. It's happened on weekdays as well as weekends..That is very disappointing that they don't keep a better watch on their inventory. The corn chowder is excellent but has thinned out a little this last time. The black grouper is amazing!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was really good,The food was really good, but service was lackluster and absent.

Great portions,Janes is awesome! Great portions, great options, something for everyone! Their cheeseplate is amazing!! Just a great place to go!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOn an early Sunday eveningOn an early Sunday evening in March Jane's was uncrowded but this small, intimate space began to fill up by the time we left. Reservation would be a must later in the evening and a challenge for those that want privacy. The creative menu didn't overwhelm with too many choices (which I consider a good point) but did have a great variety sufficient to please all tastes. Our scallops with curry risotto and chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and with a divine sauce were both perfectly done. The warm truffle brownie for dessert was to die for. Of interest to foodies, the open grill behind the bar gave the opportunity to watch dishes in preparation. On street parking in the immediate area is pay to park but a block away we found free parking3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHamburger was small and dry.Hamburger was small and dry. Steaks and pork chops are very good.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMJanes is our goto placeWe love this place. Chef Tony doesn't miss. The food is great and the place has 2 personalities; one side is dark and rustic the other side is bright and more formal. My wife and I go here on date night. they regularly have groupons. We take friends from out of town here to share great food and a Chicago institution.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Janes!Jane's was a delightful experience!
