I had made a reservation through open table for the outside seating at the restaurant and when we got there they tried to seat us inside and I said then I had asked for outside seating and they didn’t have a table so we waited a few minutes which was fine and then they gave us a table but the server we had was not very attentive. They brought drinks to the table fairly quickly but then never brought any bread And we had asked for that and asked for them to take her order we waited a long time. The server didn’t have a great attitude. But the food was excellent as always

We have always had a very good experience at Jolane's because of the food, service and atmosphere. It is always a good choice regardless of an everyday meal or a special occasion.

Dinner delicious altho some of our favorites were off the menu
Server could have been a little more pleasant-slow to take order and bring our popovers‼️

Chicken pot pie was recommended, but very disappointing. Was like having chicken-ala-king. Dry pastry and very little gravy and meat. Squash side was cold.

Jolane's is one of the few restaurants that you can count on for a great meal in a quiet, classy setting.

We enjoyed our dinner at Jolane's. The server was attentive. The popovers, as always, were a nice treat. The salad was a decent portion and crisp, with good dressing. I order the salmon on cedar plank and it was the perfect portion size. Thanks for a nice meal!

Service was overall very good, just lacked automatic offering of refills. We stayed at the table for a few hours to catch up with friends, yet even early in the meal we had to ask for refills even though he must have noticed the empty glasses. Food was delicious as was the atmosphere.

Service was terrible. Our server seldom checked on us. The food runner was told some of our orders were incorrect, but our server did not follow up. Our party did not drink alcohol and other tables that did seem to get better service. Food was average. We were seated in other room that was noisy.

Lunch here on 9/26/19 was a good experience--great and friendly service; good food at reasonable prices; an excellent dessert list of fresh baked delicious items; while dining room fairly busy no pressure whatsoever to leave (my guest and I were there about 2 hours catching up on things). Have been to Jolane's 3 or 4 times in past and never been disappointed.

GREAT CHOICE FOR SUNDAY BRUNCH!

We were entertaining out of state family and as part of our tradition of taking them to ABT, made a brunch reservation at Jolane’s. We locals come often for lunch and had been here a couple of times for dinner. All six of us were very happy with our selections.

The menu had a nice variety and our choices were Ahi Poke, Lox Plate, Veggie Omelette, Blueberry Pancakes, Pear & French Brie Sandwich and Tuscan Chicken Panini. Everything was delicious!!!

Our young server, Yuliia, was great! She had an apprentice trainee who was very nice and helpful as well. The training methods here are working - all staff politely greeted and thanked us. Management deserves a commendation.

Our guests asked to make a visit to Jolane’s part of each future visit!

We like Jolane's a lot, but I think on the evening of our visit, they must have been understaffed because attention from wait staff and food delivery time were unusually slow. They comp'd an appetizer due to the delays, which was thoughtful, but not as nice as things running on time.

I made a reservation and we were seated on time. However the server was not friendly and was slow to refill waters and coffee and to take orders. I felt like we had to wait quite a bit to get our orders taken for entree and dessert. The price is quite high considering there are far better brunch places for better price.

Food was delicious and came out promptly. Service was ok, but the waiter didn’t check on us as often as we would’ve like so our dinner took a lot longer than expected and we basically ran out of time and couldn’t enjoy our coffee.

Our waiter was Alex. It took a long time after we were seated for him to come over. I actually flagged a waiter down and asked him to please send our waiter over. He took our drink order. Took him another 15 minutes to bring it. We both ordered salads. I had a harvest salad. Very little protein. I think it was chicken or turkey. So little lettuce for $15. Wildfire chopped salad is a great value instead of this place for salads. We had to ask for bread. Why do we have to ask when it’s suppose to come with? Wine was excellent. Disappointed this time. Maybe was a bad day for the waiter. Maybe he was new. I’ll try one more time.

The quality of the desserts has fallen off somewhat, since the last time that I was at Jolane's, which was about 6-months ago.

The food is very good. At lunch the avocado toast is excellent and there is a nice mix of salads and sandwiches. The dinner menu is not as extensive. Burgers are good. They big and rich, and the sides are big too. Even the burgers come with soup or salad at dinner, which makes for a lot of food. Crispy shrimp makes for a good starter at dinner.
Service on our most recent dinner visit was disappointing, with a very long wait for the food and a request for an extra empty plate that the waiter forgot about.
The fine selection of first-rate pastries is always a reason to go here.

Our food was great as always we love dining there but our service tonight has never been so poor it almost makes me not want to go back after the way our waiter had forgotten about us and even after we asked someone to get him it took a while for him to get over to us a little sad since we love it so much

Although their strength is lunch and breakfast we found the dinner menu variety interesting and everyone at our table of 5 was happy with their meal. The server appeared to be new and struggled a little with the drink orders but overall was very good.

While we had no intention of eating our dinner at the bar, we did. The bartender was quite the sommelier! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I plan corporate events and will definitely be looking into booking this restaurant.
