Another great meal at Jane G’s. Love the dumpling sampler which my husband and I shared. I had the spicy perfume entree. A lot of food that is delicious and spicy. Prepare yourself, but totally worth it. Look forward to eating the leftovers.

Food was pretty good. Service was awful. Our first server had a little difficulty due to the cultural difference which wasn't an issue at all. The second server we had rushed us through our food and I don't think we got everything that was supposed to come with our order. Additionally, our food came out at random times. We ordered from the restaurant week menu. My appetizer came out about 15 minutes before my friend's appetizer. Then, our side dishes came out separately and then we got everything else at the same time. I would have given the place four stars (solely on the food) if our food came out together and maybe five if she hadn't rushed us through our meal. We were still eating and we hadn't even got the dessert that was a part of restaurant week when she was trying to bring us our check. Service could be much better. Really the service is the only reason I wouldn't recommend to a friend. No one wants to be rushed to eat especially when they are paying over $100 for a tab.

Party of 4 had a few small plates (wood ears and dumplings with chili oil), a spicy beef dish with rice, and sauteed pea sprouts. All were done well and hit the spot.

Delicious, authentic Sichuan food. We did a pre-fix menu forBew Years Eve. 4 course with 4 cocktails. Everything was outstanding and even our picky kids enjoyed their food as well. Worth the visit.

Delicious entrees prepared to your desired spiciness level, and presented creatively. Service was unusually slow, even though the restaurant wasn’t full yet when we arrived. But we’ll be back to celebrate the anniversary of our first date on Christmas every year, and hopefully in between!

The food was sub par. The presentation and flavor just wasn't there. The chairs look like they came from a closed down club- they definitely are an eye sore. The restroom was disgusting - makes me question the cleanliness of the kitchen.

The staff was attentive and the service was excellent. It just looks like they are good servers stuck working at an establishment where the owner is pinching pennies in the wrong places.

You need to spend money to make more money.

Definitely, will not be back.

I've eaten here several times. I highly recommend the Appetizer Spicy Beef and Noodle Soup (game changer!) and the Popcorn Rock Shrimp. I normally get the Sichuan style entrees. It's spicy, so I recommend getting 1 level less on the spice rating out of 5.

The service was ABYSMAL!!! It took 35 minutes to get water glasses. After the first glass of water, we asked several times for refills and never got them an hour later. Eventually we got up, walked behind the bar, and filled them up ourselves. Food good but overpriced. Will not be returning to this restaurant.

great duck and sizzling beef was super good. Jane G special fried rice you must get if you like friend rice and the dumpling sampler we shared and was very tasty. Place needs to be cleaned up a bit and get rid of those cheezy lanterns and make it more sleek. Service needs to be upped as well as I wanted a second glass of wine and our waiter was no where to be found. You also need to get chinese spicy mustard in not the frenchs yellow kind.

OUT WAITER WAS NOT SO GOOD SO THE EXPERIENCE WAS NOT THE BEST. I TOOK TWO PEOPLE FOR THEIR BIRTHDAYS. ONE ORDERED THE DONE.. WAS NOT GOOD. WAY TOO SPICY AND THE WAITER DID NOT SAY IT WAS.- BONE IS ALL THE DUCK PIECES TOO. NOTHING CAME OUT FOR BIRTHDAY AND THE WAITER SAID HE FORGOT TO LOOK ON THE RESERVATION.
I DO LIKE IT HERE..I GO REGULARLY AND I THINK THE WAITER MADE THE EXPERIENCE NOT SO GOOD BUT HIS LACK OF TELLING US THINGS AND NOT NOTICING IT WAS A BIRTHDAY.. WE EVEN EXCHANGED GIFTS SO IT WAS EVIDENT IT WAS SOMETHING.

As a first time diner I wasn't blown away, even after a friend's recommendation. The decor is attractive but they feel the need for loud music piped in, so it's harder to hear. The servers were good, except they didn't help with our first time ordering. The apps of rock shrimp and dim sum sampler were very good, but the entrees were less than spectacular. I ordered duck in beer sauce and asked for less spicy, but it was so spicy that we had to send it back. Chicken in cashews was just okay, and udon with seafood was not great. The fried seafood plate had no flavor whatsoever. I think they have to be better than this but we will give it one more try. Just be careful ordering as this is higher priced than most Asian restaurants.

Some reviewers felt the food here is not authentic but as an American eating Chinese food I thought it was more than fine. Everything we had was delicious with the only exception being the parsley rubbed spare ribs. Tender, but tasted too herbal and dry. The Dan Dan noodles were excellent. I liked the fact that brown rice is offered with entrees as well as the usual white rice. And any dish can be ordered spicy on a scale of one to five. Specialty cocktails were great. The food portions are quite large but very reasonably priced. Service very attentive without being overbearing. Recommended.

Food was pretty good. You can find better food in town but if you want Asian in that local area its a good choice. They were "out of" Sauvingnon Blanc and the only other white wines were Chardonnay and a slightly sweet pinot type wine-not too great. Their spicy food and soups may be best but we didn't try the soups. We were told the mushroom dish had long hot peppers and is a little spicy but it was just bland mushrooms in a white sauce. Nice Mongolian beef, salt and pepper squid and hot pot chicken but the chicken was a little salty and dry. Pretty good General Tsoas (sp?) chicken.
