    There was no menu, they told us that they had had an accident in the kitchen and there was only what they had on the table. Very poor service, no one was on the lookout.

    What a cute place and delicious food! Went for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Reservations are a must unless you want to sit at the bar which is first come first serve. The portion sizes were very generous but could have been a little hotter. The photos on the website look exactly the same in person...adorable! Will definitely go again when I'm back in NYC.

    This place is really cute! Beautiful outdoor and indoor seating with enough space between tables to easily talk. I got the corn pancakes (liked didn’t love) and the bacon (usual, good thick bacon) and my friend for the avocado toast and side of scrambled eggs. Servers were kind and timely, volume was low enough to easily talk. Great spot for a girls’ brunch!

    We were staying at the One Hotel there, so it was quite convenient. We (my wife and I) have very different tastes, and she's vegetarian. We both loved the coffee crumb muffin, the coffee, and our entrees (I had the deconstructed -- sans english muffin -- eggs florentine). Our service was friendly and efficient.

    Our server eventually walked over to our table and then stood there. He didn’t acknowledge us whatsoever. My friend asked if he were there to take our order. He nodded and again-just stared at her he was annoyed (or seemed to be) annoyed when I ordered a cup of coffee after he’d taken our orders. My frittata was cold however, according to my friends, the bagel & lox & French Toast were delicious. While the cost isn’t out of sorts for the neighborhood, the experience made it not worth the cost.

    Went for brunch - superb! Gorgeous garden surroundings with sophisticated wood furnishings and bar. Kind, attentive staff happy to receive you. Menu filled with delicious offerings. Had Asparagus Benedict and Mushroom Frittata. Beautifully presented with freshly squeezed orange juice. Benedict eggs perfectly poached and atop the dreamiest Hollandaise ever tasted! Frittata full of flavor, no need for anything on the side. Coffee flavor just right for us. Beautiful place to enjoy your morning - was within two blocks of our hotel.

    Food was okay at brunch, although the menu choices are limited and a bit odd. Menu could use a few more options. The dining room is pleasant. Service was not good. Our waitress was surly for no apparent reason (and never returned to our table after taking our order). We had to ask the hostess/manager for more coffee and the check (which she provided). Maybe the waitress was just having a bad day? Or perhaps they were short on wait staff? Not sure I'd return; there are other options with better food & service nearby.

    The waiters were not attentive and they were defensive when asked for items. I came for the chicken. It was terrible. The skin seas flaccid and not crisp. The meat had no flavor or texture and seemed steamed not roasted. Could they have reheated it? In a pot? I got a replacement which was not too bad. Seemed hurriedly prepared and not elevated for presentation. The service was strange hard to get a waiter. Just a major disappointment. I was looking forward to you chicken for years. Pretty place though. Where was flavor. Boo hoo.

    It was very disappointing as the advertised a buffet brunch for $45.00 dollars. When we got there they gave us a A’la carte menu with astronomical prices which is for tourists. I was furious and straightened it out with the manager. Of course I’ll never go there again

    Food was good. Service was horrible. Our server walked up to our table and asked how our meal was, 20 seconds after it got set in front of us. She laughed and said she would come back to check on us. Never saw here again, anywhere in the restaurant. Finished our meal and after about 20 minutes had to flag someone down to clear our plates, had to then flag two people down to get our bill, then again to give our credit card. In the middle of all that they brought nuts to our table for someone else and added them to our bill. They are an appetizer and clearly we had been there a while. Never got an answer to what happened to our server. It wasn't busy maybe they sent her home? They did offer us a dessert. And after they added the nuts to our bill they offered us a drink. By this time we just wanted out. Put a whole damper on some great food. Go for the food and atmosphere with low expectations for the service.

    I'd eaten here before and remembered two dishes especially fondly: the kale salad that tastes like a more interesting Caesar salad and Jams signature chicken and fries. The salad was still fabulous but the chicken, while juicy, was under-seasoned and kind of bland. And the fries had an off taste. Perhaps they were fried in animal fat? We asked for bread which was presented warm with a whipped Miso butter and garnish and was delicious...until the check arrived and I saw that one bread was $11! Our server took it off the bill because, when we asked for bread, there was no mention of a charge. while it was good, it was a ridiculous price to pay for what is often served gratis elsewhere. Cookies for dessert were fine. So next time, I'd order the salad and skip the chicken in favor of the bread! Beautiful setting, especially in the summer. Bon appetit

    I have not been to Jana since pre pandemic and the quality of both food and service has declined in my opinion. The menu options are limited, my short rib entree was dry and uninspired. The bill was steep for essentially appetizers and limp kale salads and one entree. The olives were good.
