Janices' Bistro HoHoKus, NJ

Has anyone read the NJ Monthly review for Janices' in HoHoKus? It was horrible they gave them 1/2 star and their comments were really bad. the Bergen Record gave them several months ago 3 stars. Why the major difference between reviews? I actually like the place. What does this say about the reviewer?

    it says one reviewer liked it better than the other i suppose. it could also say a lot about the restaurant.

      Personal experience trumps a magazine review...

        The place is great for breakfast (french toast), lunch (sandwiches) dinner (specials), dessert (coconut custard pie)!

        Who cares? The reviewer had a fight with his or her significant other. The palce rocks! Give it a whirl! It is only a meal!

          I've been there a couple of times and have enjoyed the food and would reccomend it to anybody interested. It's small and cozy inside.

            Got a bad piece of Chilean Sea Bass--rubbery, horrible. They replaced it with another miniscule piece that was slightly better! For $32 they were not all that accomodating. A slight apology. I will not be returning for dinner. In this economy, they should have done better!
