It's kind of like an English garden. Very pleasant, hostess will seat you promptly. American menu. On Sunday afternoon we were able to order breakfast (Veggie breakfast is loaded with 'em) as well as afternoon turkey burger from the menu. They also have an enclosed porch used for parties as well as guests. The young waiters bring the food themselves... More

For its location, you'd think it would be average at best, but it's much better than that. Excellent food and service, and a decent wine list too.

Jolane's is a wonderful place for lunch. It has good fresh food and attentive service. The soup/salad/sandwich special is a favorite for the group. Can be a bit loud. They also do a very nice job with larger groups for lunch or dinner.

I have been to this restaurant several times for lunch and dinner. The food and service are both really good. The Harvest Salad is one my favorite meals!

This is a nice little neighborhood bistro, oddly located in a strip mall next to a large appliance store. The chicken chili is very good, as is the angus burger. The Norwegian salmon burger was a bit overcooked; but otherwise OK. Wines by the glass are a bit pricey

Good food, can't decide if it's trying to be a bistro or a bar or both. Wings were good, salmon cooked well, pastry was ok.

Absolutely loved the Earl Grey loose leaf tea which was served in a cute teapot. Nice touch! Nice selection of desserts... liked the macaroon with chocolate.... wish I had bought several more! Sat at a booth inside which had... More

Four of us had dinner at Jolane's yesterday and as always everything was very good. Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in selecting our dinners. I had the Branzino which was lightly pan fried perfectly. Two of the others had steak entrée's and were both very happy. They have two dining rooms. We were in the first one... More
