Too Many Rules!! Our night started when we entered Just Janice with a Groupon and were escorted to the back of the restaurant (we were told that the front of the restaurant was reserved for handicapped customers but we are highly skeptical). Another couple came in who also had a Groupon and they sat right near us. We had overheard... More

For the first time I was completely underwhelmed with the food. Granted, it was the pene a la vodka and bolognese..but it tasted like the cream was a bit sour..I wonder if it was just reheated food. That can happen to the best and I get it, but the big turn off was the "suggested gratuity" on the bill, written... More

We go to Just Janice as often as possible. The food is always delicious, and the atmosphere is warm and intimate. Janice is a wonderful chef and never disappoints. We have tried most everything on the menu and always have had a wonderful meal, although it's hard not to get the trout every time! I highly recommend Janice's. It will... More

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
