Great place for lunch. They do a happy hour during lunch which is a great deal.

The food was fine but the service was rushed and it made us feel unwelcome. It was a quiet Sunday night and most of the tables were empty. It was obvious our server wanted to get out of work early. Drinks were removed before we were quite finished with them. Plates were cleared when not all of us were done eating. The check was dropped on the table without checking to see if we wanted anything else. What should have been the perfect place for a quiet meal between friends who hadn't seen each other in a long time was instead an experience that became more uncomfortable as it went on.

We made reservation for 1 pm and till 1:40 pm we were still waiting in the crowds. The receptionists even asked us to agree on finishing the meal before 2:30. While we were waiting, we saw many other groups who made reservations but not able to be seated and let alone walk-in ppl. Although receptionists apologizes couple times but it’s certainly unacceptable. Every time they said to wait for another 2 mins for cleaning tables but we actually had to wait for another 10 mins and asked them again about the table. And what’s next is still waiting. The food was okay and not nicely put together.

Wow what an experience this restaurant was amazing. The food was outstanding and possibly one of the best meals I have ever had..It was a special occasion for me and they made an exceptional effort to make my day beautiful and succeeded with flying colours. Thank-you so much to the staff.

All of the dishes we ordered were terrific, from the Tuna Tartare Tacos, to the Grilled Octopus and Kale Salad. Wonderful flavors, and the perfect amount to share between two people. Would definitely go back again.

Ugly restaurant. Too many tables crammed in there. Our table was literally 2 inches from the table to our left and 6 inches from the table to our right.

Tuna tacos were excellent, popover solid, and proportions generous. Service was perfect- quick, not pushy, very pleasant. Decor is plain but functional. Only complaint: I wish they had let us know happy hour drinks are made with well liquor and given us a choice to pay the uptick for better quality (resulting headache not worth the redux in price). Overall I had a great time.

Great brunch spot. All the classics can be found on their brunch menu, would highly recommend their “Big Salad”, which, unlike most NYC restaurants, are actually big. Very attentive staff and a great Bloody Mary top off a successful brunch

We walked in, waited 20 minutes and no server came to us. The place looked old and very used. Health code was a B and it seems everyone who has gone recently has said it’s no longer a good restaurant which is too bad. There are so many other good places around.

Brunch at Jane is a prerequisite every time I’m in Manhattan. The French toast is beyond and the egg dishes are fabulous. The energy is great as is the service.

The tables are too close together. I was claustrophobic sitting on the banquette. The food was fine but not memorable at all for the price. Service was a bit curt.

Very disappointed in the service throughout the night. We did not have a good experience from the check-in, bar, or the waitstaff. It seemed like there was a real lack of training based on how things went all night. Nobody was rude or inattentive but lots of little things were missed throughout the night.

My wife liked her food very much and would probably go back. My pork chop arrived overcooked in some spots and very undercooked in others. The vegetables were stone cold as well. Not sure what happened.

We sat in the basement with a draft that made it incredibly cold. My friend had to wear gloves. We were one seat short and we had to get our own seat. It took a long time to have someone take our order and for our drinks to come. On the other hand the drinks were great!

I totally over estimated this restaurant. Food was not as good as the reviews said, everything was just normal. Besides, the server asked if we want to start with the bread basket but didn't mention we have to pay for it! Some of the brunch places I went in the past offered free bread. Actually it turned out that the bread basket costs $10!!?? Although the portion was ok, I truly didn't feel anything special about this place. We drove from New Jersey to eat at Jane but felt super disappointed! Never come again and will not recommend Jane to others.

Very packed restaurant.. and tight seating spot.

Went on a week day for lunch/brunch. The coffee and food was not as great as it is hyped up to be. I had the classic eggs Benedict and it was very average and a small portion. Some of the other items from other tables looked better thought. Service was kind and attentive but overall an okay experience.

The restaurant was packed and I still had to wait despite having a reservation. There isn’t much waiting space so many parties were waiting in the middle of the dining area (not quite ideal for the servers). The food was ok - my friend got the chicken sandwich, which although had many delicious additions, the chicken itself was under seasoned. We also found a stray hair in the middle of the sandwich. The servers were extremely attentive and returned the sandwich, apologized profusely, and offered us something else on the menu free of charge. Although I won’t be back for the food, the staff made the experience quite pleasant.

We certainly enjoyed our brunch and the food was quite good. I only give 5 stars for truly extraordinary food and to be honest I can’t say it was but it was certainly very good! The crab cake part of the Eggs Benedict was disappointing and my only negative of the meal. The short ribs hash was very good the French toast excellent. The cocktails we’re delicious and the service exceptional. We were grateful that in what was a crazy busy restaurant at the time we were seated almost immediately and according to our reservation. We will definitely be back to try the dinner menu.

I did not enjoy my dish at all. I got pasta with veal ragu and it just was not good. There was no red sauce, which was strange and it was very liquidy and looked gross.

Came for brunch on a busy Saturday afternoon. Arrived around 1pm and it was booming. We had reservations and the hostess was kind enough to hold it although my date was late. The food was okay. I got the Jane Benedict and wasn’t overly impressed. Maybe I will get something else next time.

The server Eric (Which I later learned. I was calling him Deric the whole time smh) was great. Very attentive and friendly.

The ambiance was lively. It was pouring outside so that’s probably why it seemed much busier than it actually was when we arrived.

I will be back and maybe next time try something else.
