Uncomfortable & Untasty

vip
Dined on November 27, 2015

Not a great Saturday brunch. Back room was not vented. Food was bland and lukewarm. Tomatoe chunk in a breakfast burrito still had the grocery store sticker affixed. Table was sticky from prior patrons. Highlight of the meal was server's tacit recognition that we would not want to wrap up the plentiful left-overs.

Lovely place in the West Village

Dined on August 28, 2015

This place was a surprise, it was relatively inexpensive, but the food was delicious. The service was good, the staff was pleasant, and we felt really welcome in the restaurant. Our group had the fried calamari, soup, sandwiches, and dessert. Everything arrived in good time, and the food was really fresh. We'll definitely try this place again. So many places in the village cater to an upscale clientele, but this place seems like it's out of the "old days" in NY, no hype, just good service, good food, and nice, simple atmosphere.

Great food, service, and staff

Dined on August 25, 2015

This reservation was for a lunch for a small wedding. The back room can hold about 20 ppl, we had 15. The food, service, and staff were great. Our group had a lovely time!

Good for secret meeting

Dined on April 15, 2014

Perhaps we went at an odd time, but the restaurant was mostly empty. This led to very attentive service and the feeling that this would be a good place for secret deal making! Food was okay, nothing special.

Love this place!

Reliably good food always . They always have bananas foster for dessert and they draw an excellent pint o' Guinness; my favorite place to meet friends.

Tavern on Jane is an old favorite

Dined on February 7, 2013

Tavern on Jane is an old favorite that never fails to prepare food well, and it has a casual Village neighborhood ambience that we enjoy.

I take the subway to go here....

Went to meet a friend from Brooklyn here -- halfway between us. A cozy neighborhood spot with an above-average kitchen. An oasis of neighborhood friendliness in an otherwise trendy area for restaurants. Great prices and not just burgers -- unusual for a bar.

Inexpensive and well-prepared

Inexpensive and well-prepared food, and the bar looks like a nice place for an after-work drink. I like the relaxed, cozy atmosphere. The staff was friendly - I felt like a welcome guest. I will definitely come back if I am in the area.

Lunch Treat

I really enjoyed their menu - it was diverse, simple but interesting and delicious! I'd never eaten there and will go back. The portions were small but not ridiculous.

Tavern On Jane = Quaint...

Dined on September 30, 2011

Ate here Friday September 30, 2011. We went here because we got a deal for a discount 50%off /up to $25.00 off check (site will remain unnamed). We are glad we did! It is a relatively small, well kept good looking place. There is a fireplace in a back alcove dinning area (seems great for a group/party/gathering). There are 2 waitstaff and a busboy - due to the size and flow design of the room, but all help out. Our waiter was a nice person. The discount says "18% gratuity may be added to check" - it was, we gave him 20%! The food selection and quality for what is described as a "tavern" is excellent. Our waiter recommended a wine better than the selection we were thinking of at the same price when asked to help with our possible choice...
