Jane is a casual American bistro located between Greenwich Village and Soho. Since April 2001, neighborhood regulars and destination diners alike flock to Jane for its value-priced brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Jane also serves as an ideal location for private events, from business dinners to baby showers.

At Jane, the menu showcases an affinity for local ingredients with what New York magazine calls “cleverly tweaked but unpretentious American cuisine.” To complement the food, Jane offers a hand-selected, extensive wine list and seasonally driven cocktails.

Jane is the sister restaurant to Sarabeth's Restaurants and Docks Oyster Bar.

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.

Firstly, our server was outstanding. Very attentive and explained any changes to the menu [there were several we were unaware of heading in.]

But that is about where my positive recommendations end. Outside of my girlfriend's gnocchi, the first was very below-average. Especially considering the price.

The brussels sprouts appetizer was unsatisfying. They were barely cooked/charred. Most were still pretty firm inside, which is not desirable.

The single octopus was also subpar. Chewy is not exactly the consistency I am looking for with octopus.

And finally, my NY Strip, though cooked to the requested temp [med-rare], tasted like char off the grill. The steak itself had no taste to it, including the accompanying red wine sauce. Also, the asparagus had barely touched heat apparently.

Again, the server went above and beyond. But I would not recommend anyone I know to visit here for dinner. Uninspired menu, coupled with poor execution from the kitchen and overpriced to say the least. Hard pass.

Made a reservation for 11:30am (which is when they open) and they opened precisely on time. No wait to be seated and was helped by our waiter as soon as we sat down. Overall, the french toast was great and the mimosas we ordered were excellent.

This restaurant is way too overrated. I sit for 10mins before someone brought my server to me. The meal was just okay. I mean it looks okay maybe for a picture, but too salty. I waited another 10mins for my bill, the server handed me the dessert menu instead. And one more 10mins for the check. Bad experience, would not come again.

Very disappointed in the meal. I haven't eaten there in a few years but I remember it being much better. Had mushy, undercooked, very sparse amount of calamari and a teeny sliver of salmon. Had to fill up on fries which were the only food that was abundant. Full disclosure: my friend had steak and said it was very good. We also had teeny, tiny scoops of melting ice cream that was okay, not great.

Food and ambience were quite good, although we thought it was a little overpriced (we were there for brunch). It was the service, however, that was excellent. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu offerings, made great recommendations, and everyone who checked on our table was super friendly and helpful.

High, high marks for all the servers at Jane!!!!

Jane is reliable the food is good and if you use Open Table you will
likely get a reservation for a decent time.
The noise level and music was just awful when we were seated but surprisingly the staff agreed and did the right thing.
And that my friends is no less than a miracle in NYC !

My friends and I were celebrating a birthday brunch for two of our friends. The food was delicious, and the drinks were delicious. Our waitstaff were prompt and accommodating. Although it was rather noisy with three other big tables celebrating birthdays, we didn’t really mind. My friends enjoyed the food and the overall brunch experience at Jane.

We returned to Jane after about one year. We have always been satisfied with the food, service and atmosphere. We were disappointed with the food. The kale salad was not edible and the mussel dish was small. We arrived at about 7:15pm on a Sunday, and the restaurant was virtually empty. The dishes have become overpriced. Management offered to replace the kale salad and removed it from our bill. We decided not to order anything additional. It was not a great dining experience. In the past it was a great go to Village experience. Not sure if management has changed.

Restaurant was empty. Only 3 or 4 tables with people. Service was very poor. Servers were standing at the bar talking to each other and paying no attention to the few tables of people. The good as usual. What happened to all the customers? Maybe it’s the lackluster service. No one seems to be in charge.

5 of us had Sunday brunch at Jane and we all loved our meals, service, and vibe. We were running late and did not get any attitude about late arrivals. Waiter was attentive and accommodating about special requests. We tried/loved the kale/quinoa salad, bennys, egg popover, pastry basket. Biscuits were good but not as good as the pastry basket. Bacon was a great side. High energy place but not too loud (I have hearing impairment). Nice variety of choices, including for our gluten free friend.

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.
