Jolane's is wonderful place for a lunch with friends. The service is attentive and the food is good. Just basic American fare. Plenty of parking and a very nice sort of enclosed porch. Very sunny in one room and old wood paneled in the other.

Service is always slow . Place was half empty and it was still slow. Getting a cocktail took forever. Spaetzle was greasy and way over cooked. I would give it a 2 out of 5. Stars 2.

European flavor restaurant great for lunch in the atrium. Excellent salads, albeit large, and sandwiches. Plenty for to go box. Drinks at night are pricy for area. In a strip shopping center so can be hard to find at first.

I find it hard to categorize this restaurant. I think that it is wanting to be cool and trendy but its location and decor just don't mesh. Nestled among a commercial business complex, it's not a place I would choose for a romantic night with...More
