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

I have frequented this restaurant for lunch but have only been there for dinner a few times. I will only return for lunch. During lunchtime, the service is good and the salads and sandwiches are fresh and delicious. During the dinner hours, service is very mediocre, as is the food. Highlights of the dinner food include the Crimini Mushroom and... More

My wife and I went to Abt, and the salesperson recommended Jolane's. It is owned by the Abt company. The food and service were very good. They had a good selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and panini's. I had a Flatbread Panini with soup and my wife had a quiche and soup. Both more then met our expectations. If you... More
