Jane Ratings and Reviews
Pastry Basket (Good) - Sticky Buns (Very Good) - Jane Burger (OK)
American Menu - Atmosphere was good - Food was ok, not great - Service was massively disappointing - Similar type restaurant to the Smith and if you have to choose, choose the Smith every time - Bloody Mary (OK - lacking garnishes and strength) - Waiter forgot to brings sides we ordered, we did not bring it to his attention - Was not very attentive at all - The burger sounded good on the menu, but ended up being a very boring burger - overall we were all massively disappointing besides the sticky buns - would not go back
We we’re pleasantly surprised with our experience at Jane. Last minute dinner plans on Saturday night limited our options so we were just happy to find a table in our neighborhood. But the evening turned out great! Lovely atmosphere, good food and quiet enough to have a conversation. We would definitely go back
I have come to Jane several times and love their French toast. As soon as we were seated we were informed that the delivery truck hadn’t arrived so they weren’t able to make the French toast. I was extremely disappointed but found something else that I was satisfied with.
It’s usually very loud as the tables are very close to each other so you can’t help but hear your neighbors’ conversations. This particular morning, however, one of the waiters was cursing so loudly at one of his coworkers that everyone could hear it. It went on for several minutes and started in the back but when the coworker tried to walk away into the bar area in the restaurant,he was followed by more cursing. Very unprofessional and disturbing to hear when you’re trying to enjoy your brunch.
A group of us went here after a show knowing that we could still get a good meal even after 9p. The service was friendly and knowledgable and the food was spectacular as always. They even tempted us to get dessert - we practically ordered one of everything.
Service was slow. Waited over an hour after ordering and people who were seated after us were served before us. Waiters never came over after we placed the order. I had to flag them down sand was told a chicken sandwich took longer than other food. We left without ever getting our lunch as we had to get back to work. Front of the room staff asked how everything was but when we told them they just said ok.
Will never go back
We went on a rainy Tuesday evening so the restaurant was only half full. The ambiance was relaxing and conducive to conversation. It was really great to be able to talk without shouting and rushed to leave. We all ordered the brick flattened chicken. The chicken was wonderful! It had just the right amount of spice and was so moist. We will definitely go back.
We were sat downstairs with a few big parties and it was incredibly loud and we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. I think the experience would have been better if we were sat in the main dining room. Otherwise, service and food experience were good but nothing special.
We were sat down 15+ mins after our reservation time and our server didn't bring us any bread. Then there was a 25 minute wait for our tuna tacos that we were told was going to be complimentary because of the wait. This was not the case as they didn't take it off the bill. The flat iron steak with rosemary fries I had was fair but my wife's lobster roll was very bland and tasted watered down. The roll itself was good but not the filling. It was also way too loud to have any decent conversation at the restaurant. Given all the options in the area, I can't say I would return to this establishment any time soon. Just a very disappointing experience overall.
went here for a sunday brunch. waited for half hour for our food to come out. Salad was not fresh on my dish. no where to find our waiter during entire brunch, only when we are ready to pay. host was not welcoming, no greeting at all. not in the begining, not at the end.
Overall disappointing brunch. Eggs on my husbands Benedict and my avocado toast cooked through! Not runny. Waiter fixed but surprising error for an expensive brunch. Second avocado toast had large glob of Unripe avocado stacked on it. Service great and responsive to problem but I did not enjoy my dish to the fullest.
I came here for Sunday brunch looking forward to a great meal but was very disappointed. After having a reservation for only 2, we still waited 15 minutes to be seated. It took about another 10 to be recognized by a waitress and another 15 minutes to order our meal. The black coffee alone was 8.50 on top of our 2 bloody Mary’s I was already annoyed that our menus sat on the table for that long. The food was mediocre honestly, I was expecting more based off the reviews and menu.
Jane was clearly having a rough night. I had never been before but anyone I had spoken to only had good things to say. The person who sat us (I’m guessing the manager or supervisor) was very nice and I had high hopes as we were sat. The waitress was horrific - one of the worst I’ve ever had. She took our drink orders (their lemonade + kettle) and app orders. She then took our menus away.... We tried to stop her but she grabbed them insisting she could bring us one if we needed when ordering mains.
Our hot appetizers came out in the right amount of time and were pretty good. About 5 minutes into those our first round of cocktails came. They came with apologies that the bar was backed up. We then tried to order our mains but couldn’t remember the proper names so the waitress went away and came back with the menus. Food was served and was great. We had ordered another round of cocktails with dinner and they came when our check came. We were not eating fast. The Manager comped us a round of drinks which was helpful.
In between all of this they smoked out the dining room twice (smoke so think it made your eyes tear) and they had to open the doors to air out the restaurant. Let’s just say my girlfriends and I went to the bars that night smelling like smoke, satisfied with our food but not with the service.
Been here before and loved it, went back and left disappointed. Went around 5 and got the sunset menu, disappointed it didn't have steak and frites, but the waitress talked to the kitchen and got us our steak. Was super happy but she left after taking our order and gave us to another waitress. The steak was cooked perfectly but seasoning could have been better, the buttery steak sauce that I had last year was gone and got a steak sauce that didn't compare. On top of the the fries were way too salty it was hard to eat. Though the agave lemonade is amazing! The waitress getting us our steak was a highlight but the food could have beed so much better especially when it was amazing the year before.
We had a great experience here! We were looking for a place that we hadn't tried on OpenTable and we selected Jane based on the Open Table ratings. So happy we did! Delightful waitress and waitstaff. Good service, but not rushed. Terrific drinks and great recommendations from the waitress. The food was good. We would definetly return. My husband and adult daughter were visiting the city. They were on business and I tagged along. I made the choice and they were both delighted with it. Both said they would be happy to return.
The space is packed with tables but it doesn't "feel" packed. We couldn't hear anyone else's conversations and we were able to converse comfortably during dinner.
I've been to Janes many times and have always loved it. Unfortunately this time the staff wasn't as pleasant especially the hostess...or welcoming and the service was mediocre. I think our waitress was hungover and messy.She had a beyond messy bun in her hair and we were concerned her hair would fall in the food! Ugh.
Had brunch at Jane on Sunday with my friend and her husband. The menu looked so good, I had a hard time choosing between the French toast (touted as their specialty) and the Jane Benedict. The waitress said both were great, BUT she loves the Jane Benedict which is eggs benedict but on crab cakes instead of an English muffin. I took her advice and was NOT disappointed. Absolutely yummy! The complimentary Bloody Mary was a nice surprise. While Jane is quite "energetic", my friends and I could still carry on a conversation without screaming at each other. Would highly recommend Jane and I'm sure I'll be returning.
