Everything was just okay. Price not out of line for market but the overall experience was mediocre. Everything was under seasoned and Greek chicken salad came with cold chewy chicken breast.

Party of 3. All 3 dinners were very good. My pork chop was tender and delicious, and the mashed potatoes under it were hot. The seafood pasta had a delicious sauce, which also was hot. The Mediterranian Salmon was very good, with a great presentation - also hot. Clearly this restaurant knows how time and serve main courses. Food was delicious.

I can always count on Jane’s bistro to sit me and my daughter in the worst possible table even with advanced reservations. Women do actually tip well Jane’s Bistro. It wouldn’t hurt you to give a full time resident and frequent diner a half way decent table.

I came for the coconut cake and mentioned this to server. However, when I went to order it after our meal, he reported that they were out of it. Ugh.

Busy restaurant - and no wonder, food and service is excellent! Try to make time to lunch here whenever I'm shopping at Shelter Cove. This time we were here for a reunion of former neighbors. Our reservation was perfectly attended to despite the busy , and our friends (some who required walkers) were comfortably seated. All thoroughly enjoyed lunch and our waitress did not rush us, giving us ample time to catch up. Thanks, Jane, for a great day!

I am a visitor to Hilton Head Island, multiple times per year. On this particular visit, seems that a couple items on the menu the recipe has changed. One notice was with the pecan chicken salad. Now seems to have scallions in it. Prior to this visit, scallions were not a part of this item. Long time eater of the pecan chicken. Also I am missing the uptown grill cheese. Hate that it is not on the menu.

Time we went in for lunch, got busier as the time went on. Which in turn made our waitress less with us. Drinks got low/empty and such. With that said, we are customers that will return and understanding that having staff during this time can be hard to come by, especially on certain days/times.

Restaurant always very clean, staff is always very friendly (even on this day). We will return

We travel to Hilton Head every year and had no eaten at Jane’s until this year. The photographer who took family pictures recommended it. On the second attempt we secured a reservation. Everything was perfect. We will be back next year.

I am gluten free and Jane's has very few choices for me so when I want a good salad I will go there but would go more often if they had some gf choices.

I always enjoy going to Jane. Our server, Karen, was awesome - helpful, friendly and energetic. The Butternut Squash soup last night was amazing (a special). One thought my friend and I had was that the lighting could be dimmed to be more ambient in the evening.

This is my favorite restaurant! I was so surprised that I got a disappointing dinner; chicken and feta swimming in a salty pesto sauce. They kindly replaced my dinner and comped dessert. A fluke. As in almost all restaurants they were understaffed but the support staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back.

Two of the meals were really good and the other two were not. Pork chop seemed like it came out of a package precooked. It had zero flavor and absolutely nothing special. Cheeseburger was prepared wrong and we sent it back. Another came out within a few minutes which was very strange because there’s no way they could have cooked another one that fast. We believe they scraped off the Mayo and put it back on the grill. The bun was almost ice cold and certain it came directly out of the refrigerator onto our plate. Server was good up until we told him about the issue and he just looked at us and offered nothing to make up for it. I think even an apology would have sufficed.

The restaurant t was really cute and we were thrilled with the decor and the appetizers. We won’t be back because 2 of the 4 meals were terrible.

Jane Bistro's patio is absolutely adorable! The hostess and our server were both friendly. We went for brunch and got salads (that were very generous size portions) and bottomless mimosas. For batch mimosas, they were actually quite good! Good variety of menu items and I'm sure some substitutions could easily be made for vegetarian/vegan options. The seating area is not too far from the parking lot, but not too noisy, as it was off-season. I would definitely recommend for brunch or lunch.

We were quite impressed with the menu choices. We were served promptly. We did find the meal was rushed with the main arriving while still having our appetizers. Portions are large but well presented and they provided containers so we brought home what we couldn’t eat.

Food mostly good, nice presentations and somewhat different combinations.

One person had the steak-frites, only steak on the menu, and it was a surprisingly thin t-bone. Next, it was mostly well done after a careful initial chat with the server about how the chef executed a rare steak. ?

They were very apologetic and offered strongly to redo it, but that's never ideal as the rest of the table eats, then you eat 10 mins later on your own. They did cut the price in half... All helps, but better to just do it right.

Will go back.

Had a great Friday night dinner at Jane, started with an Oban and "The Therapist", both were outstanding. I had Crispy Snapper and the Czarina had Shrimp and Grits, which we both enjoyed immensely. Shared the Chocolate Moose tort for dessert.

All in all we were very impressed and will definitely return

The chicken salad here never disappoints! We've been here many times as it's a must when we are on vacation in Hilton Head. We learned you can actually buy it to take home so that will probably happen next time.
