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.

Excellent dining in the city. Very friendly staff, reasonably priced. We were there on Monday for dinner and it was not crowded at all. Try the cauliflower appetizer. Very unique preparation. It had a slightly crunchy coating with a semi spicy sweet and sour flavor. Excellent!

I was a regular customer but I haven't been there for a while. maybe about a year.
I was there because I really wanted to have their French Toast which is my favorite.
All menu price raised (understand because it's been a year..), Portion of beef salad were smaller than before and my french toast wasn't taste same...was really dry inside and the place was not cozy anymore. like something missing and empty. but i finished it because i was so hungry...
I had to wait all the time at least 15mins even i made a reservation in advance before but i didn't wait this time. i kind of know why there's no wait now.
I was really sad that I might lost my one of favorite place so I always take my guests from other countries or states.
Dear Management Team of Jane, please consider my comment and give me a chance to try it one more time.
Thank you.

Got the eggs Benedict - over cooked eggs, dry ham, dry muffin, thick hollandaise. The greatest bloody Mary is good, bit not the greatest. Jane used to be great, now it feels like a tourist trap.

Disappointed in the Eggs Benedict. Cold and the yolk was overcooked. Sauce was like cement on top of eggs.

My family did enjoy short ribs hash though.

Maybe it was too busy for the staff

Unfortunately, we did not enjoy our experience at Jane. The food was generally over-priced and mediocre. The tuna tartare tacos we had were unseasoned and did not seem fresh. Furthermore, we were charged over $20 for a standard serving of french toast. I did not find this restaurant to be of great value. The service was also a little slow.

I was disappointed in the experience I had at Jane. It started off poorly and nothing was done to make it any better, resulting in an overall poor experience. While they acknowledged the reservation and sat us in a timely manner, it took 15 minutes for our server to stop by. When he finally did stop by, he asked if everything was okay. I said no, we haven't even been waited on and it took hi another 5 minutes before he returned to wait on us. I tried the Vanilla Bean French toast, and it came out lukewarm at best. It was also chewy and tasted like they used stale bread. The portion sizes didn't measure up to what I would have received at a cheaper, better-tasting option for brunch in NYC. I wouldn't recommend going here for brunch. Try one of the many other options in Greenwich Village.

I love Jane every time I go there, but this was probably the best yet. Had the deliciously juicy brick-pressed chicken which came with an amazing broccoli and farro combination. All amazing. This is far from the prettiest restaurant around (don't go there for ambiance -- you will be disappointed), but the food is so good it doesn't matter.

We both ordered French toast and Bellinis. The drinks were just okay, hard to screw up a Bellini - neither of us finished our drink. French toast was good, very sweet, but still enjoyed it. We were there on the early side, around 930a. We ordered, and in about 4 minutes it arrived - a bit fast, but we didn’t mind. They didn’t rush us through our meal, despite the quick serve. Continues to be a good and easy spot for brunch in soho.

Delicious! I had lunch with my 2 teenaged daughters here, after a tour of NYU. Perfect place to get great food, rest and rejuvenate. We had the seafood cobb salad, french toast and avocado toast. Each meal was fantastic. I personally had the cobb salad - loaded with tons of seafood. Service was terrific and friendly. Would definitely recommend and go back.

It was a great dinner, last minute planning for some recent college grads about to embark on their first jobs, and another couple of students, one doing her first city internship and the other about to take off for a humanitarian project. It was celebratory as well as a send off and the staff could not have been more cordial or sweeter. Really relaxed atmosphere with delicious food. Great time had by all.

I love Jane for their vanilla bean french toast! My husband and I came specifically for it this time. The flavor was still good, but it was overdone. The edges were rather hard to chew. But I know it’s not usually like that so I would still go back.

Quite disappointing! The famous French toast had deteriorated in quality - not soaked through, not cooked through, not even warm.
Been with Jane since it opened, am now afraid to recommend to friends & out of town guests as I’ve done in many years.
