Brunch at Jane lately?

I'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews from earlier on in the life Jane. Has anyone had brunch there lately and have any comments?

    Went there a ton in the summer and loved it. They respected my reservation, did not rush us, and the food was terrific.

      I've only been twice. First time last winter was very good. Second time this summer was not so good (overcooked eggs benedict). It's a pleasant place, though, so I'd give it a try.

        I have been there several times in the past few months and the food and experience has been good. I personally enjoy their burger, which I believe is a little underrated and they have a very good grilled chicken salad. It can get crowded and noisy, but not to an uncomfortable level. Reservations is recommended, the wait can be long without them. I know from experience.

          Jane remains a solid place for brunch (or dinner). Not mind blowing, but solid. No matter how crowded they are, they always honor your reservation.

            Actually, that's not true. I had to wait once. It was New Year's Day brunch, but I still had to wait.
