We were visitinng NYC and our friend took us to this restaurant. We took the subway and got off one block from the place. It is a small restaurant and it sits on the corner of a quiet neighborhood. The place is charming in an old world-like way. We thought the food was excellent and our waitperson was first class.... More

The moment we stepped into Jane's, we knew we had found a gem! The bar and restaurant were both buzzing! We were seated along the banquette, at a sweet little table for two amongst other couples. It is a very intimate environment. We started off with the calamari served with a roasted tomato wasabi dip (to die for), then shared... More

I love Jane street, it's full of fun old restaurants and bars that really epitomize what's great about the west village. Tavern is no exception as its casual but elegant menu has something for everyone. I really think the tuna club is my favorite and it's just an excellent idea.

We stopped here for a drink and ended up staying for the evening. Great range of drink from larger to spirits. Friendly staff and good service helped create a great atmosphere. We did not have a full meal but had some chips but the menu looked great.

Stopped off here after a show at the Village Vanguard on our way back to the Jane Hotel up the road. We didn't eat, but had a few (too many) drinks. Some whiskey, a glass of wine, a bottle of lager. Enjoyed it, atmosphere was great. Very friendly clientele. Had to have a chuckle about the guy who warned me... More

Tavern on Jane is really a great place to go on a chilly winter night or a fall evening. They have a few fireplaces going and comfort food galore. The Raspberry Habanero wings are awesome! So is the Yellowfin tuna club. Highly recommend!

Disappointed in the food at the Tavern on Jane. The restaurant was crowded, as it was one of the few restaurants open on the night of the recent snow storm, so I should cut it some slack. Still, the food was only so-so.

Realiably tasty dishes in a warm atmosphere. I love the fish tacos. My partner the burgers. Nice to have a neighborhood meeting place in the west village.

If you're looking for a really good place to eat near the Whitney or just south of Meatpacking, then this place is it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The brick walls, tin ceiling, authentic bar and cozy tables all add to atmosphere. Colorful artwork adorns the walls and the chair are comfortable (and the tables are not on... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
