What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

Head spinning after a long day of getting dragged around Soho with the female? Find salvation in a crisp Blue Point Toasted Lager draft and steak frites at Jane. It'll help restore the equilibrium. The predecessor to fratty East Village favorite, The Smith, Jane is its slightly more sophisticated older sister.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Worth a visit. a few standout dishes and drinks. I know it sounds crazy but they have a cauliflower dish that is really good. For drinks go with some called Janes secrete recipe cocktail.

Nothing was terrible, but most of the meal was mediocre and not worth the price. Clams in the chowder were very rubbery. Mac n cheese had raw onions in it. Had to wait 25 minutes to get check and pay it! Won't go back.

Stopped by Jane for dinner. It was surprisingly empty for a Tuesday night.

Pros:
Great food and drinks
Quiet

Cons:
Service - They were slow to deliver our drinks and sat us at a table right next to the kitchen when the entire restaurant was empty.

After hearing great reviews about Jane, I thought about having brunch with a friend. Service was terrible on a Sunday morning afternoon. I had to get the main person in charge not the wait staff to take my order. My friend was looking forward towards the Jane Benedict. What a big disappointment when the crab cake was not “that hot” when it was served. My short rib hash was just “bland”. Drinks were great but it’s only complementing since the rest of the meal was terrible. My friend and I decided that this would be our last and only time at this place

Service very poor, kitchen got backed up yet waiter was just standing around later blamed it on servers for the delay. Brought apps and entrees at once, stuff got cold. It was a special occasion that was not so special. 3/5 for okay food. Otherwise pretty meh.

Crowded on a Saturday night- staff and kitchen didn’t seem up to the challenge!
Waiter was polite but a bit clueless about service. Ordered the pork chop that arrived very under cooked ( or uncooked as the case may be).
I’ve been to Jane several times and it’s usually pretty reliable, so would chalking this up to a bad night and untrained staff.

It was a complete waste of calories and time. 20 minutes to get the wrong drinks and to be served bland food that needed a huge dose of salt. Literally nothing was good even the rosemary French fries were bland and limp and probably out for an hour. Not going back .

Jane is a great place for Sunday brunch, be sure you make reservations as it fills up quickly after 12 noon. The bread basket was excellent along with the salmon Benedict and the French toast!!!

Lovely restaurant with relaxed but funky atmosphere. Food was delicious. Only down side was that three mains arrived cold. Waiter was fantastic and rectified it immediately, and even unexpectedly comped two glasses of wine. Best cauliflower starter I've ever eaten :)

Really not sure why there are such great ratings for this brunch hotspot. We checked it out for Sunday brunch. Place was packed. Food was served very quickly-almost too quickly as if it was pre made. We ordered the wild mushroom omelette (which came with potatoes) and the eggs Benedict. The omelette dish came with toast that was cold to the touch and the food was lukewarm. Everything was just MEH. The bloody Mary’s were good but nothing to write home about. I think this place is resting on its laurels and their reputation precedes the actual quality. Not going to return.

I went here with my family for my birthday brunch. It was a great choice! Lots of options. I chose the vanilla bean French toast. We also got a carafe of the Hawaiian mimosa which everyone enjoyed. Delish! We didn’t get dessert but they gave me the milk and cookies dessert on the house for my birthday. Great restaurant with excellent service. Highly recommend!

We have been meaning to try Jane for ever.
Finally got some friends and a table and made it a night.
The drinks were excellent and the beers well chosen. We had the gnocchi as an app for the table. SUPERB! We almost arm-wrestled over the last one :)
Then came the only hiccup in an otherwise stellar meal; it seemed like we had something on the order of a half hour wait between the appetizer and getting the rest of our meal (our mains). We were able to fill the time catching up with one another, but the gap was noticeable.
Guess we'll all have to go back for another wonderful dinner and see if it happens again.
Go to Jane and try it for yourself.

The eggs in the eggs benedict were overcooked & came on an untoasted bun. Not very sppetizing. The maitre’ d was very nice, comped our order & let us order something else from the menu. I ordered a hamburger & it was very good. My friend reordered the eggs & they came only marginally better. The cappuccinos were very good.

The service was terrible. The waitress was nice but never around. Took 15 minutes to come over the first time. 10 minutes to get my friend's drink and then another 10 for the iced tea I ordered to arrive. The French Toast wasn't soaked in egg/custard AT ALL. It was really just plain bread. The rosemary fries were under cooked and had no rosemary. We could see the tables next to us had rosemary on theirs, but they must have forgotten on ours. All in all, it was $75 for two orders of plain bread and one order of undercooked, underseasoned fries. I used to love this place, but wow! It's gone way down hill. Sad.

Jane used to be good. This time time food took forever, drinks came after food, the food was poorly done. While waiting for our drinks and food the couple next to us got up and left without paying because their food hadn’t even come out after an hour (ours came out first and we had arrived after them).

Used to be a good one to go to for good brunch food, after this overall TERRIBLE experience not returning and absolutely not recommending to anyone who asks about it.

We had a reservation for 7 for brunch on Sunday. We were seated on the lower level, which was much quieter but didn't have the pretty natural light setting of the upstairs dining area. Food was very good - a couple of people had the French Toast, a couple had burgers- large portions, very tasty. A few had the veggie/avocado sandwich with goat cheese and side salad- ingredients very fresh, wonderful. For dessert we split the bread pudding, is v. good but you can taste the whisky in the sauce and the apple pear upside down cake which was absolutely delicious- must order. Service was okay,, we had to ask twice for coffee refills and our server seemed a bit annoyed to have to serve us.
