Janice has consistently been one of Bergen County's best little places to eat. Formerly a diner with traditional counter & booths it is a fabulous find & totally unexpected. Janice is the owner/ chef & she is most creative in her preparation of meal entrees. Seafood & pastas are great as are the pork chops & rib eye steaks.

Wasn't sure what to expect with the slight changes to decor and the new name (previously, Janice a bistro). But any concerns we might of had were immediately dismissed as the atmosphere is still warm and inviting, whether you choose to dine al fresco in the warmer months or grab a booth or table inside. The staff continues to be... More

Went here for the first time with friends and family for dinner, all of meals were excellent; the lamb special was very tasty, the Mahi Mahi with broccoli rabe risotto was fantastic! I would suggest trying the specials! The service was very attentive and friendly! We got to meet Janice and found her to be very friendly and passionate about... More

Saw this on Trip Advisor so thought we'd give it a chance since we were looking for a good brunch spot. The atmosphere was charming. The coffee was good, although I had to catch the waiter's attention to get a fill up. Their cappuccino machine was broken the day we were there. I got eggs benedict, topped with pulled pork... More

"Janice" morphed overnight to "Just Janice" with the same decor, same address but a new management and new chef. Providing breakfast, lunch or dinner in this suburban New Jersey town with an Indian name, Just Janice provided our table )booth) of four with four different appetizers and four varied entrees, each receiving a thumbs-up for presentation, service and most importantly,...

I had been to this restauraunt years ago and although it was good I wasn't in a rush to go back....there are many good restaurants in the area to pick from. However I was meeting a friend for dinner and she suggested we meet here. The restaurant had been redone and the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. I always like... More

The restaurant had recently been redone so it tries not to look like the diner it once was. Nice try but it is still dark and could use more touches. I ordered the short ribs only to be told that they were not available. Of course, when the waiter was telling use about the specials, he did not mention that... More

Where to begin . . . went for 'brunch' - one person in our party had French toast - for $10 - two pieces of regular, twin bread, served with Kraft pancake syrup - not even real maple syrup - and they had to wait for a forgotten, miniscule amount of 'berry sauce'; eggs benedict $12 - southwest eggs benedict...

Although the food is not bad, although over-priced, the manager is very rude, to put it mildly. I made a reservation for 6:oo pm (the last time I will ever go there). The manager called me earlier in the day to confirm the reservation, and to remind me to be on time because he had the table booked for 8... More

Walking in the atmosphere was nice. We were seated and given menues. Apparently there was much confusion as to who our waiter/waitress was and was completely unorganized. By the way be the end of dinner still could not determine who our server was. The food was nothing special, tasted looked like I would make at home. My wife ordered the... More
