My friends and I went to JaneQ after we saw Hamilton at the Pantages Theater. The restaurant is a part of the Everly Hotel and has a great modern and sleek ambiance. The food is a mix of Mediterranean/Italian and is absolutely delicious! We had the brussels sprouts, margherita pizza, crab dip, and papatas fritas. The wine selection was great, and the servers were very nice. The only bummer was that we waited a solid 15/20 minutes to be asked what we wanted to order because there was a mix up between our two waiters. Other than that, it was overall a great experience!

While the food was fairly good, the ambiance, especially the noise level was beyond energetic - it was deafening. The 3 of us felt that the acoustics really impacted the enjoyment of the meal. I can’t recommend Jane Q’s for a special occasion or dinner. It may be fine for breakfast or lunch, but if you’re out for a special occasion, this is not the place.

Do not expect a fancy sit down dinner at this Cafe. It is not a restaurant. My son was given a very greasy chicken sandwich, doesn't come with any side. I ordered the Margherita pizza thinking that would be the safest. It had an insane amount of cheese on it and it was a greasy soggy mess. We really should've eaten somewhere else.

The restaurant was very good! We like the originality of the menu. However, the restaurant we're shortstaffed. Which we understand with Covid. They forgot my husband's meal. we had to sit and wait in the way in the corner because of the noise level. Overall a good restaurant. It was in the hotel that we stayed at and we are going to the theater so everything worked out perfect. Her waiter was extremely nice and attended in spite of the situation.

Cocktails were well balanced and delicious. My husband got the braised short ribs and I got the bahn mi. Both were so good that we were still talking about it the next day. We parked across the street in the Pantages parking garage for $15 because we were seeing a show afterwards.

We visited for dinner before Hamilton and had a very pleasant meal. The pizzas were delicious, the lobster spaghetti was excellent, but the star of the show was the Short Rib - those of us who didn't order it were mighty jealous. My husband and I will be returning just for that.

Service was very pleasant but confusing - none of the plates came out at the same time, and we had to ask twice for my daughter's pizza to be served. Luckily we gave ourselves plenty of time before the show and were enjoying each others' company, but this aspect was definitely a problem. We were comfortable but there was only one other table; with all the hard surfaces, I can guess it would get pretty loud in the restaurant. The biggest drawback was the hard sunlight coming in from the western windows; I spent the meal in my sunglasses as the sunlight was hitting me square in the eye. I strongly suggest Jane invests in some shades similar to the ones on the southern windows.

Overall we enjoyed our meal and will be back again.

It's a hipster cafeteria or a convenient place to eat if you're staying in the hotel. The food was not great, not bad, but not great. No real atmosphere to speak of.

Thanks for dining with us! You're correct, while we almost always have room to take any walk-in group, we do like to recommend making reservations on the weekend for brunch (which yes is counter style service) or for dinner (which is traditional dining service) so we can make sure we have a table available. We hope you enjoyed your meal, and we look forward to seeing you again Warmly, Jane Q

It was fine. It was less of a restaurant than we coveted. It is more of a drop by or take out. Maybe caused by COVID.

Food was very disappointing. Have had the steak there several times pre-pandemic, and it was delicious. This time both of our cuts were tough. Sprouts were delicious but not hot. Potato cube was also cold. I'm sad I forgot to order the delicious bread but it was probably for the best. We were too tired to deal with a redo...

I'm going to say that I would recommend JaneQ simply because I have enjoyed lunch and dinner in the past. I really enjoyed the two weeks stay at the hotel.

I'll be back, but I won't hesitate to return an unsatisfying meal.

We have had several meals at Jane Q in the past and decided, having not been there since before the March 2020 lockdown to return for dinner earlier this week. We were warmly greeted and all appropriate protective measures were in place. We ordered two salads including a gem lettuce caesar salad and we shared a steak. We had ordered the steak to be pink/medium, and it came to the table closer to medium well. It was still delicious but it was not cooked as ordered. The salad lettuce looked tired and brown on the edges. We were hungry and chose to just eat it. Giving it thought after the fact, we should have sent it back. As we left we noted that the chef was not the usual who has always been there before--the one with the abundant tattoos. We think he may have been a substitute. We will certainly return, though next time we will likely return food that was not up to par. Usually the food is great there, but this time the service shined and the food was disappointing. Hopefully it was a one time thing, and the regular chef will be behind the counter soon.

This hotel cafe is trying to be fancy and hip as befits its location just up the street from the Pantages on Hollywood Boulevard, but does not quite rise to its level. The best thing about it is that it is a roomy quite space to talk.

I came here to take my boyfriend out for a Valentine’s dinner. I read about Jane Q on Yelp and saw they had a pre fixe Valentine’s dinner. This place is so well done! Beautiful clean lines and great use of the lofty space. The lighting was perfect and romantic. Our server was friendly and attentive. My boyfriend (who rarely sends anything g back) had a flank steak that was over cooked and our server got him a new one and put the overcooked one in a container to take to our dog. Very thoughtful! Everything was delicious except for the raspberry pannacotta, which was pretty bland. After dinner we went upstairs to play pool at the bar/lounge area. Such a cool spot! We will definitely be back.

We have been to Jane Q for lunch so thought it might be too familiar for Valentine's eve: my mistake. Jane Q amped up by creating a softly lit atmosphere, white tablecloths, sparkly lights and the evening sparkle of Hollywood's surrounding lights in the evening glow created a wonderful ambiance. The service is always good and my husband's grilled salmon was a "memorable" experience. I had the $45 3-course special dinner and loved the hazelnut, frisee, pear salad; roasted chicken and refreshing raspberry sorbet with accompanying fresh fruit. Thank you Jane Q for surprising us and giving us a memorable Valentine's eve experience.

Great Happy Hour throughout the dining room. You can order happy hour then at 530 the rest of the menu opens up to fill out your dining options. We love coming here before a show at the Pantages just a quick walk down the hill. We've been here twice before shows and will do it every time!

Good choice for the area; quality food, but pricey. Ambiance is nice and modern. Food is delicious and fresh. Bar offerings at the restaurant could be more comprehensive, but there is a full bar just above at the hotel lobby. Service is attentive but non-obtrusive. A short walk to the Pantages makes it a great pre-show spot.

This restaurant accepted a reservation for my night, and then without letting us know, closed the entire restaurant for filming. The only other option was to eat at the noisy, crowded bar. Don't have open timeslots if you are gonna close your restaurant.

It was empty which should have sent me away. And yet they were all out of pizza. There was a DJ in the adjoining room which made it impossibly loud. I get the deal about serving shared dishes as soon as they are cooked but they brought a hamburger well before the other mains. The smoked salmon appetizer was very good. Eggplant parm tasteless. But there was no read for the restaurant to be open adjacent to a dance floor.

I appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback. At the moment, we are currently working on pushing back the music times to give diners more of that relaxed vibe. I apologize that we had no pizzas on the night of your visit. I can assure you that its a rare occurrence especially since pizzas are a big commodity here in Jane Q. Come join us for our brunch hours which are everyday until 3 PM. You'll find it to be more relaxed with our counter service and delicious array of espresso drinks.

Hotel had v hip aesthetic. We were looking for restaurant near Walk of Fame....in hindsight we should have eaten on the Walk of Fame as it was quite a walk. Service staff looked v surprised that we had made a reservation as it had a v casual vibe and was not necessary....there were lots of free tables. Wasn’t quite what we were expecting from reviews, bit more casual than we had thought, but would definitely be good to eat there if you are staying at hotel. That said, the food was tasty and the staff made a lot of effort to make the evening pleasant.

We were looking for a restaurant near the Pantages. We were dining with two other couples. We saw this place listed and decided to try it. What a wonderful surprise! We made it in time for happy hour. The food was amazing. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The biggest surprise, the man we were dining with happened to be the architect of this Establishment and hand never eaten there. He was very happy that everything turned out. Would definitely go again.
