I had my husband's 65th birthday dinner here on Friday night. They were all set up for our small group of 10. I was pleased with the assortment of dinner entrees and doubly pleased to learn that now each comes with choice of soup or salad. Everything was outstanding. The only negative (and this is very small) is that one person had a gnat in their cream. Will definitely be returning more often. Everyone left happy and satisfied.

The service was great, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect for good conversation. I love it when you are with friends and you don't have to talk over obtrusive music.

I have never had a bad meal or bad service at Jolane's. Everyone, from the bussers to the hostess are friendly and accommodating.

This was our third visit to Jolane's. We enjoy shopping at Abt and visiting this lovely European-style cafe with its good-to-excellent food. Best are the salads, dinner entrees, indulgent pastries, and the rich Julius Meinl coffee. If their BLT Club is available as a lunch special, go for it. The other sandwiches on the lunch menu? Meh. Most pubs and sports bars serve better sandwiches.

Unfortunately, Jolane's service remains deplorable. Leisurely pacing is one thing. But when soups, salads and entrees are ordered, the table remains bare for 45 minutes, and then the server brings everything to the table at one time, that's unacceptable. Ditto a 20-minute wait for one cup of coffee, followed by a 15-minute wait for the check. All of this when the restaurant was not crowded.

Lots of convenient parking.
