The fresh pasta was delicious and a lot of lovely thoughtful sharing plates. Had the Ray fin and Lamb Shoulder which were tender and mouth-watering. Highly recommend 🙌🏽🙌🏽

We live locally and come here all the time- every time we bring someone new they're instantly just as obsessed as we are. Food is seriously amazing, service great, atmosphere lovely too. Highly recommend.

This was our 3rd visit to Jolene and sadly we weren’t as happy with our experience this time. I booked a table for my boyfriends birthday and we were surprised to be seated at the bar when we arrived, as the booking didn’t specify this. We were directly opposite to where all of the drinks were being made and served which wasn’t ideal. We then were told that the table was needed for another booking at 9, at 8.50 so we had to rush our desserts and wine. The food was amazing as always though, just a shame about the other points as we’re big fans of the restaurant so chose to book it for this special occasion.

Great venue, very atmospheric. The member of staff who served us was brilliant. Very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. Dessert portions were large but pasta portions were too small.

Jolene is a beautiful restaurant with a really relaxed and warm vibe.
Went there with my friend and we ordered the pasta with sausage, shared the beef and had 2 chocolate tarts for dessert and that was enough food for us. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Service was great, they didn't rush us with anything, just left us to enjoy our food and wine, and catch up.
We had a very nice experience , would definitely recommend.

What a lovely restaurant, so pleased to find this in Newington Green - on a Sunday evening the cured brill and fennel was light and lemony, the chard with pine nuts and raisins was a generous plateful of sweet, tangy yumminess. But the piece de resistance was a whole plaice cooked with tomatoes and croutons - soft, tender and falling off the bone but full of flavour and more than enough for the two of us. We ordered a salad with it which came with a good dusting of parmesan, and the bread though lovely was possibly unnecessary. We shared the plum and almond tart, which came in a rich, crumbly pastry base and was excellent though if I was being picky I'd say it could have done with a higher ratio of plum. The coffee came in earthenware cups, which didn't impress my partner. All in all, a very good meal at a reasonable price. The service was eager and quick if a tad unpolished. But full marks for effort.

Not for brunch. Menu is very small compared to dinner menu and they run out of dishes half way though the service

In a word, amazing. I absolutely loved this meal from start to finish. I do think the pasta dishes could be a tad bigger, but like, that's the worst thing I could say? Everything tasted so, so good. Service was so friendly and spot on. Room is obviously gorgeous. I can't wait to come back.

The ambience and aesthetic of the restaurant is incredibly attractive and in no way pretentious. The staff are attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food seems to draw from mostly traditional European style cooking, and the menu is well thought out and well executed.

Jolene, alongside its sister restaurants, are the kind of places which you could eat at every week and every occasion would be special.

Booked Jolene for my birthday. The atmosphere / service was great!
But I didn't realise that they only have very light dished for Lunch. We were all hungry
and wanted to order dishes like pasta but they didn't have any.

We all enjoyed the Chicken dish but again it was more starter so we ended up going to another restaurant to have pasta afterwards.

I would highly recommend it though and would love to try dinner next time.
