I was a bit underwhelmed by this place. We made a reservation to eat there before a show at the Pantages. The salmon rillettes were very different than we thought they would be by the menu description and the beet salad was just okay. I ordered the salmon entree and although it was good, I wondered where the rest of it was. It was literally a 3 inch square piece with some fennel and olives. That is all for $32? My husband got the cheeseburger and added bacon. That was over $20 and came with nothing else.
That being said, the service was great and I think the Happy Hour deals seemed pretty good. I just found this place expensive for what you get, albeit very convenient if you're going to the Pantages.

Jane Q is a modern restaurant that is part of the Kimpton Hotel. We dined during happy hour which made pricing awesome. 4$ Pinot Noir and 6$ appetizers that were very good. The dinner menu is limited, but the options we tried were really good. I had the salmon with a beet salad. Delicious. Our server was very helpful in making decisions and recommendations that fit our taste and budget. The happy hour is the best deal and highly recommended. Very nice and friendly staff. I would definitely dine here again.

Enjoyed dinner at Jan Q's prior to a show at the Pantages theater. It's a short walk from the theater so I was able to get good parking at theater lot.

Happy hour and prefix menu's were great. Staff was very attentive and being that this is in a "pet friendly" hotel, we were able to meet some cute puppies between courses.

Flat iron steak was great, garlic knot appetizer was addictive.,....save room for the bread pudding!

I would recommend this restaurant for date night or theater night.

We had dinner here before going to the Pantages. It will now become my go to pre-theatre dinner spot since it's conveniently located a few blocks from the theatre, the food and service was great, and we took advantage of the prix fixe theatre menu, which was a great deal!

Loved the quaint restaurant. It's in the hotel, so you will miss it if you don't know where it's located off Yucca St. We shared the margarita pizza and the cheese board and they were both fantastic. The waiter was attentive and nice. Would recommend to friends and family and would go back!

New York strip for $40 should not be dry.

Appetizer of shrimp and yoghurt made absolutely no sense

Beef carpaccio reminded me of lunch meat

Bone marrow was very bland

As a new alternative to a pre-movie meal before heading to the ArcLight Hollywood, Jane Q is a good option. The casual setting with a full & interesting cocktail bar with a menu of lighter fairs is quite nice. However, the meal portions are small and some reinterpreted items (like the truffle calzone) just don’t work. The deserts are plentiful and sweet.

My wife and I were able to get last minute reservations (booked 3 hours before we dined) which was a great since there was a show at the Pantages that night. We needed to be in and out in 45 minutes since we were heading to a show at the Pantages down the street and the staff did amazing to serve us quickly without feeling too rushed eventhough we showed up a few minutes late.
The food was very good, great place to get a few shareable and try many items on the menu. We had carpaccio, meatballs, pear & burrata cheese, and a small pizza and everything was delicious. This will likely become our new pre-theater favorite and we would recommend for any date night night.

Beautiful modern decor. Menu is inviting and accessible. Food was excellent, really enjoyed my forest mushroom pizza. My dining companions both had the steak and thought they were excellent, perfectly cooked. We each indulged in a dessert and no one left even a morsel. Of course, I had a lot of pizza to take home so I would have room for dessert. It was great the second day too.

Had only 45 minutes to catch a bite before Pantages Theater event. Server was so a accommodating and helpful. He alone made our night.

Food was amazing. Huge portions. Drinks were out of this world and truly delicious.

We got the $29 open table menu deal which was such a good deal - the entree alone on the menu was 26.
Oh and surprise - FREE champagne just because we told our server we were headed to the Pantages to see Wicked!!!

Can’t wait to go again - really sweet spot with great atmosphere and super close but totally removed from Hollywood Blvd

My date and I were LITERALLY the only 2 people in the restaurant and it was 7pm which seemed strange. Nobody there to greet us, and we needed to find a server to order with. The bar on the next level up was exciting and great atmosphere and since the ambiance there seemed so much better we skipped eating and had one glass of wine and went upstairs to have some fun before going to see “WICKED” which is right around the corner.
We really thought the place had closed or gone out of business.

Jane Q is a hip and delicious cafe/diner. The cheerful lower level may be fully occupied, but there's plenty of comfortable open space on level two. Order and pay at the counter, take your number and they'll find you. I highly recommend the chicken and waffles, fresh croissants, or anything off the dinner menu. All excellent!

Love the brussels sprouts love the salad with pistachios and it’s wonderful French Parisian style dressing. Loved my glass of wine and the salmon rillette. Yummy! The service was fabulous.

My friend and I loved our meals--pork meatballs for me and sea bass for her. Mine was called "smallish" but was way too much for a small portion. Rather than too much of one thing, it would have been nice to pick two or three actually small things for a variety. The sea bass was perfect...good preparation and presentation. Dessert was a huge portion, much too much for one person.

We really appreciated the attentive service before our theatre evening--in and out in an hour with no feeling of being rushed. One other very good point--Jane Q is a short walk from the Hollywood & Vine Metro station and super convenient to the Pantages.

Ate at Jane Q before seeing a show at the Pantages. The atmosphere was just OK for dinner. And the dinner was just OK as well. I think this would be a fine place for breakfast or lunch, though. (But not dinner!) We ordered the grilled octopus appetizer, which was actually very good. My husband ordered the short rib, which was OK. I ordered the halibut, which honestly was pretty terrible. There was grilled fish (tasteless) with random other ingredients on the plate - sliced green olives, a few mandarin orange slices and some sauteed (bitter) fennel. No sauce, and the ingredients just didn't seem to go together or taste very good at all. (blech) For the price, I expected a better put together meal. The drinks before dinner at the bar, though, were quite good.

All around great food and service. The avocado parfait, octopus, garlic knots, salmon rillettes, and garden of greens salad were killer. The smoked cauliflower was great on the first bite, but was a bit over smoked and became bitter and inedible with successive bites. Try not to come in the late afternoon/early evening as the westward wall is windows without shades, and the tables in the shade are a hot commodity!

Service was slow and food arrived at different times for the four of us dining. Menu is limited. Side of meatballs excellent; pepperoni pizza was super greasy; sea bass was good; and polenta with shrimp, couldn't find the shrimp. Probably will not be back for at least a year and then see if any changes because this place is sure convenient to Pantages.
