We had a table for two and were seated quickly. That was the only good thing about today’s lunch. We waited 40 minutes to be served. Both meals were not warm and the waiter checked only once during the 40 minute wait. At the end of this meal the wrong check was presented and had to be corrected. It will be a VERY LONG TIME before we return.

Very cute restaurant and not too loud or crowded for a family birthday dinner! A few mishaps with food and service. My brother’s wine glass was dirty, the guys delivering the food brought us someone else’s food twice, our french fries weren’t served hot but they happily took them back and brought us new ones, and the menu said the steak came with arugula salad, however it was just a regular arugula-less salad (the waiter said it was a typo on the menu? Ehh). Luckily my family doesn’t get phased too badly by imperfect service, but overall had a nice experience in a great area of town.

Jane lived up to its name. Plain Jane. Omar and his new Assistant bar tender were the best. Irma our waitress as well. We had the iron steak -scallops -lobster roll and mussels. Eh—just ok. Barely .The avocado lettuce wrap(?) and Branzino special were very good. Good time —nice meal , place is tired and begging for some new clothes. There are tons of places to eat average at $ 90 a person. Drinks included😎

So we found out they changed management and all i can day is WHY?! Food does not taste the same. The Jane Benedict that used to come with these awesome potatoes now only comes with a salad and you have to order a side of potatoes. And the potatoes are even the same as before. The food lacked flavor, bland. All in all, new management messed up a gem of a restaurant that had flavorful food. My wife and I travelled all the way from the Bronx, in traffic, to be disappointed. On the Positive, staff was great and fast.

We went mid afternoon and it was very crowded. The food though was fantastic. We ordered off the brunch menu- the popover, steak frites, avocado toast- excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Will be back!!

Jane is a neighborhood favorite of mine that rarely disappoints! With delicious food and excellent service, dinner there is a pleasure! The decaf cappuccino I had was so flavorful, I was sure it was caffeinated but it wasn't. Salmon with couscous was perfectly cooked and hit the spot.

I visited Jane for a lunchtime get-together. While other reviews speak of the place being crowded (like for brunch), the place was pretty empty. I ordered the full pasta dish of gnocchi and found the sauce had a pleasing taste on first bite or so. However, by the time I'd eaten about half of the dish it was no longer warm and the sauce had congealed in an unappetizing way and I no longer wanted to keep eating. My friend did well with her mixed drink but she found the lobster roll she'd ordered ($24) was quite skimpy. All in all, I'd have to say it was poor value and I will not be returning.

The food at Jane was wonderful, and the servers were friendly, polite and apologetic--but it took over an hour for our food to emerge from the kitchen, while diners on all sides of us were being served much more quickly. The hostess brought an extra bottle of wine as an apology, but the wait was annoying.

Very busy place. We were only a very few minutes early and had to wait quite a while for our table which was a problem because there is no place to wait and we were constantly having to move for the waiters. When we were seated, the waiter seemed like he was in a rush to take our order and then ignored us completely.

The food was good. The ambiance and service was not.

Perfectly fine, but certainly nothing more. $26 or so for four scallops in an undistinguishable pureé. Ordered roasted brussels sprouts; they were roasted to the point of being ver, very burnt.
Decaf coffee was weak and watery. Charming service people: this includes the woman who seated us, the woman who waited on us, and the man who replaced her when she announced that she was going off duty and Ahmed (?) would be our waiter for the remainder of the meal. I don't think that it is "that charming little place in The Village" that it wants to be.

Came here for brunch with two friends on New Year's day. The place was packed! We were also late and had one extra person (my reservation was for two) but they were very accommodating. The drinks are great (bellinis!) and the food is perfect for brunch. Overall a great time.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on January 1, 2018

We picked this restaurant for brunch because they were listed as gluten free. When I asked for a gluten free menu the waitress said she’d ask the chef. She then told us we should probably stick to a salad. That was pretty disappointing considering this is NYC, and most places offer something other than eggs and potatoes for gluten free offerings. My friend who is not gluten free enjoyed his meal quite a bit.

I got a tear in my eye the first time I had the French toast and have had it several times since. Alas the last two times the French toast was just okay, and the newbies I brought with me weren't impressed enough by their meals to match the hype I created. To top it off brunch no longer comes with a brunch drink (and reductions on other dishes) which drastically changes the value calculus for this meal in the wrong direction. I hope an in attempt to increase profit the quality of food doesn't drop anymore. Please get back to the days of tear-inducing gastronomical delight.

Although as always the service was great.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Jane. We were recommended by two friends and it was worth going out of our way to eat there. Try the toasted ricotta gnocchi as an appetizer and be sure to have milk and cookies for dessert. Food was delicious, waitress was attentive and the atmosphere was fun with some groovy music playing in the background. I’ve heard the Sunday brunch is awesome!
