Jolane's is an interesting place with a great physical layout and food to match. The menu has many choices and a couple of great specials every day. There's also a full bar, wine list & beer available. Though I haven't availed myself of it, there is a pastry case with some wonderful-looking selections for those who have room left after... More

I'm in love with the Julius Meinl cafes in Chicago. However, they are so far from where I live, so I was absolutely thrilled when they opened up Jolane's in Glenview a few years ago. I've been there numerous times and they have excellent coffee/espresso beverages, pastries, and food. The food can get quite expensive there, however. So, I suggest... More

Jolene's is my go to place to meet with friends and enjoy an excellent meal. They have a wide variety of delicious salads as well as full entrees for lunch or dinner. The ambience is lovely and the food is alway prepared well. There is an atrium setting where you are surrounded by windows or a quieter dining room.

Great sandwiches and prompt service. Wide menu selection and excellent customer service. Clean and pleasant atmosphere. What more could you ask for in a lunch spot?

My wife and I had checked out of a nearby hotel and saw this restaurant online had rated well so we decided to give it a try for lunch. The atmosphere was very nice and the restaurant was clean. Our server was there almost immediately and answered all of our questions. The menu had plenty of options which was good.... More

Jolane's has the variety of food, atmosphere, and white table cloth service that one would expect in Chicago but it is in Glenview. With a full service bar and high end cuisine, a date night is also a great option. The small variety of pastry are also delicious along with a coffee on a silver tray.

Seven of us met at Jolane's for an evening business meeting, and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating! We were given a table off to the side so we could talk freely, and our server gladly split our checks. I had the minestrone soup which was excellent!

We go here every few months, its pricey but the food is really, really good. I've tried quite a few items from the menu and they are all excellent. The specials are also very good.

This is really quite a nice place. Even when it is full, the noise level is very manageable. The food quality is very good. I had the burger with blue cheese and bacon. It was very good with a real excellent sour dough bun. My wife had the salmon prepared on plank. She said it was really excellent. Decent wine... More
