Went there to celebrate my sister’s birthday on her actual day. Made Rez for two, and at the restaurant requested that it be for three. Host said they’d add a chair at the table first for two. I said that would be too cramped.He said there weren’t any other tables, as everything else was reserved. I said we had reservations and he said but it as for two. We went around and around. Finally,he asked if we could wait 10-15 minutes and I said sure.he found us a table and the rest of the birthday lunch was great. Great service, limited choices on a Sunday brunch/lunch time. Nice birthday sundae. My sister was happy on a snowy birthday. The waitperson made the meal very pleasant.

Kettle One was watered down, never use a wooden pick for olives. The $10 chardonnay was terrible.
The food was mediocre at best. This is the first negative review for a Restaurant I have ever written!

What a great place to have lunch--been here many times and the food is always good. Right next to ABT (in fact I think part of the ABT "empire") so it's nice to go to Jolane's before you go over to ABT (and get great service there also!) or just go to Jolane's for a great meal (done that many times without going to ABT).

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Jolane’s. The food was especially delicious (we had the salmon and a halibut special). Service was excellent and the wine was perfect. It was a lovely night out. We always recommend Jolane’s as one of our favorite restaurants.

My scallops were excellent. One in our party wasn't as keen on the pork schnitzel, but another person liked it. Popovers are a nice treat. Our dessert was really good.

Nice atmosphere. Not so loud so it's easy to have a conversation.

This was the first time we had dinner here, and we enjoyed our visit very much. We thought the food was very good. We had the cedar-planked salmon and shrimp with a spicy rice dish. I thought the salmon was cooked perfectly, and the asparagus and carrots were still crisp and perfect to eat. Our dinners came with a light salad with just the right amount of additions on it. Our waiter was excellent; always there when we needed him but gave us plenty of space when we asked to wait. We shared the opera torte which was also excellent. The prices were right in line with any comparable restaurant. We all agreed we will come here again.

Went based on a review by a local newspaper. He said it was eastern European food and the beef brisket was just like homemade. 1/3 of the briscuit was very tender and delicious. The other 2'3 was dry and tough. My wife had a beef tenderloin. Nothing special about it as far as tenderness was concerned or flavor. In short, over priced. Will not go back.

Met my girlfriend for dinner. I had the fillet with parm crust and it was cooked to perfection. The popovers are out of this world with the sweet butter. We didn’t have room for dessert but they looked delicious. Our server was friendly and took good care of us.

As usual Jolane's delivery quality and service! It's becoming quite the popular spot and because of the Private Sale it was really packed! 2 showers were also going on so HIGHLY recommend reservations so you won't be disappointed. Service was great and attentive, making sure drinks and meals were fab. Hats off the to the kitchen staff too, for keeping up with the orders. I'm sure to be back!
