This is where you dine when you've crossed over into "adulthood." It's mellow-casual yet romantic with a beet salad to die for.
Chicory Salad is Amazing – The other day someone asked me where to get a good salad downtown. I couldn't really offer a good answer off the top of my head. While there are quite a few restaurants with good salads, none were exceptional enough to recommend. I suddenly remembered the Chicory Salad (with bacon, gorgonzola, and a warm vinaigrette) at Tavern on Jane. I used to go to Tavern years ago but hadn't been in a while and I really remembering really liking that salad. So I went back and pleased that the salad was as good as before. My friend and I also ordered the deep fried oysters, Fish and Chips, and the Cheeseburger. The food was really good along with the service. Sometimes it's nice to see that some things don't change much.
Best Tavern in NY – I finally am writing a review after being a regular at the Tavern for years now. It just NEVER disappoints! The ambiance and staff are so welcoming and friendly. I can always go in, have a seat at the bar and have a fun conversation. The food is always fresh, innovative and damn delicious. The brunch kicks butt and includes a drink.
This truly is a New York treasure.
Tops in the Village – My favourite spot for a casual stop in the Village. Outstanding value, great service, excellent food. Highly recommended.
Great food in a friendly neighborhood environment – Ate here last night with a table of 5. Tavern on Jane feels like a pub with locals chatting at the long bar, people squeezing past each other, it's casual and unpretentious. Don't let the pub-like atmosphere put you off - the food is excellent, and everything I tried was delicious. We shared the fried oyster appetizer and Thai spicy shrimp which were both very good. My main was the almond crusted Salmon special with Brussel sprouts and spinach, now this dish was perfect! Prices are well worth the food and if you can tolerate the noise, want somewhere with good service, friendly faces and are hungry don't wait another second. YUM!
"That won't work for us" – We had a bonvoyage party for a friend the other evening and she recommended this place. It turns out that a lot of people weren't able to come at trhe same time, so we had so come and some go. At one point, everyone was sitting down in this casual atmosphere on a non-busy monday night and we had one exta person come in... we wanted to join another 2 top table to ours and the manager abruptly said, "that won't work for us!" I was surprised since we had been sitting there for an hour buying food and drinks, but we went on an enjoyed ourselves anyhow... for the company only because the burger was dry and the food was so so.
User review by frap – The place was warm and cozy with very quick service. Don't know what the previous reviewer's remark about "no fireplace" was all about since we were seated right in front of a very nice warming fire which added to the ambience.
The food was good and so was the wine.
Where's the fireplace? – The food was excellent. The wine list was excellent and the waitress was very helpful in choice that went with each meal. There was no fireplace to cozy up to on the cold friday night that I was there, but that was okay because the quiant restaurant was nice for a first date.
My favorite spot in the village – This place is amazing, I live close to it so I make a stop here with friends at least once a week. I am a sucker for their Hanger Steak (always cooked to perfection, never dry) and their Au Grat. Potatos! As said before, it's a beautiful cozy little tavern in a great location and for the food the prices are GREAT. Best spot in the city for casual dining as far as I'm concerned.
A neighborly West Village pub that pushes the basics a notch above ordinary. – The Scene
This modest, friendly destination places a premium on food rarely found in casual neighborhood joints. The space itself, with brick walls, fireplace and long wooden bar, has a slightly New England feel to it. Service is always warm and relaxed, and if you show up more than a few times, count on the bartender knowing your name.
Inventive nightly specials complement a menu stocked with dependable basics: roast chicken with garlic mashed potatoes, mixed green salad with marinated grilled steak, a variety of pastas and a worthy hamburger. The classics exhibit thoughtful touches as well: The grilled chicken club is enlivened with roasted red-pepper mayonnaise and arugula, and comes with homemade fries and coleslaw.
BURGERS ROCK – If you're in the mood for a phenomenal burger in a super cozy West Village spot, this is it. I'll take their burgers over those at Corner Bistro - a scant 2 blocks away - any day. I know that's sacrilege to some, but seriously - nice toasted buns, cooked to perfection, amazing bacon, and great fries? What more could you want? More $$ than Corner Bistro, but WAAAAYYYYY better, all around...
