Really a perfect evening with my parents... we all loved what we had from the scallops to lamb chops to veal and rib eye. Perfectly cooked and presented with creative, delicious and nutritious sides. All was wonderful including the popovers which are included in the bread basket. Highly recommend the desserts, as well.

Friends went for lunch to celebrate a birthday. The menu had ample choices. One friend and I had the half sandwich combo, she soup of the day with a pear and Brie sandwich, I the chopped salad with Tuscan chicken panini. Both were very good, although I would have preferred thinner bread slices. Our other friend had the pulled pork... More

Always a refreshing, enjoyable and delicious option. Jolane's menu items are exciting, well presented and never disappoints. Half a portabello sandwich with the freshest side salad of avocado, chicken, and seeds and craisins was exceptional. Husband chose chicken chili with shredded cheese and onions on top. The serving was large enough for filling a to-go container. Love this place and... More

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.
