We have spent many pleasant dinners and brunches at Jolane's, but today was not one of them.

The new brunch menu demonstrates a plethora of extremely poor decisions by a chef who does not appear to understand Jolane's market. Many of the best items were replaced by unattractive choices. The chicken salad and fruit was outstanding, but now it is gone! The cheddar and bacon omelet was exceptional and is now gone! The new brunch menu includes too much "new age" and drops many of the best (and simplest) items that have been outstanding for years.

The "breakfast burger" perfectly illustrates the point. It includes a burger patty, arugula, cheese, grilled onions, tomatoes and a drippy sunnyside-up egg sprawling across a 3" stack on an English muffin. This might work if the arugula and tomatoes on the side as a salad and a softer bun replaced the scratchy toasted English muffin. The grilled onions could be an attractive option. A much simpler presentation would let the customer to choose how much "adventure" to put into this item for those who do not want the unwieldy mess we were served today! Few are likely to choose the drippy egg if this is clearly offered as an option.

The shortrib hash (which is not new) is another example of overdone with drippy eggs over a "hash" that is surprisingly disappointing. An accent of sliced tomatoes would add flavor and color in place of (or as an alternative to) the messy, drippy eggs. If eggs are to remain part of this mix, invite the customer to select among egg preparations such as scrambled rather than assuming that messy yolks are everyone's favorite!

I strongly recommend placing a large, prominent sign in the kitchen -- SIMPLER, WELL-PREPARED JUST TASTES BETTER!!!

This was my first visit with a friend for Sunday brunch! I ordered the veggie omlet & it was light & fluffy. I was easily seduced by the biscuit that came with my coffee & the little chocolate that came with the bill! I loved the ambience & everything in between.

I definitely will be visiting again!

Menu has been the same for a long time. If you eat there often the menu is boring. Need some new food items in the lower price category. Also need some gluten free options.

One big room, bright lights, children running around, babies crying, table after table of unhappy older North Shore couples not talking to one another -- all packaged in the strip mall made by Abt like a total manufactured life for snobs. My cocktail was $16 and barley a splash of spirit.

What a gem of a restaurant! Excellent and freshly made food. Not your run of the mill brunch joint. The quality of food is a cut above and the European flair can't be missed. I drove from the city to meet a friend who lives out that way, and it was my pleasure to do so.

I found this place online. Didn't know it existed. The food was quite yummy. Our server was very accommodating. It was a business lunch and we both enjoyed it very much. I'm a vegan and liked the portabello sandwich with a couple of modifications. Delicious coffee!

This is one unique restaurant. The food is slanted toward Austrian which is excellent and a very nice change of pace from the wave of steakhouses currently invading the restaurant space in our area. Very nice ambiance, great unique menu, wonderful service and fair prices. By all means, visit Jolane's. They also have a great lunch menu. Go and enjoy!

Overall, the food is delicious, wine was good, our waitress was nice, but could have been slightly more attentive. When we go back we will definitely ask for the front room - however, they should really turn down the lighting in front because it is way too bright for dinner.

Jolane's never disappoints me! The service and food are always fantastic. We did have a little glitch with the grilled calamari appetizer. It was a bit bland, which wasn't that big of a deal. But, then two of my children (ages 21 and 16) each ended up with a piece of plastic in their mouths. The moment out server found out, he reported it to the manager. They were quick with a fresh replacement, on the house. It was clearly NO ONE'S fault! It was a piece of the plastic packaging. No harm done! I was impressed with their quick response and apology. Their homemade cocktail sauce is unbelievably delicious and fresh!!!

The rest of our meals (all five of ours) were unbelievably tasty! The scallops are amazing (and low carb, if anyone is interested). The parmesan crusted cod was fabulous, very light and delicate. The chicken pot pie is a lovely spin on the old-fashioned favorite. My son had the filet medallions - fantastic! My vegan daughter had the veggie burger. The server immediately told her there was a bit of cheese in it. She gave it a try and it was delicious, and enormous!

I don't think anyone has ever been to Jolane's and not loved it!

Always great!. Every time we visit Jolane's I'm thinking about when we should come back. The food and service is always spot on. We have had several menu items, but the steak is always perfect and the meal comes with everything(Salad/Soup and side) . I would come here before Morton's or Ruth Chris. Put this restaurant on your list of places to go.
