This was very convenient for a pre-theatre dinner for an event at the Pantages. The menu is short and to the point and the 3 of us really enjoyed our food. The service was good and very welcoming.

Your pretty standard cafe, coffee and pastry place. Although a beautiful setting the food was fine but not fantastic. Service was outstanding and delightful.

Starter was just ok. Pizza for the kids was good. Fries were cold. My husbands steak was poor quality for the price. My mussels were so over cooked they had just about evaporated.

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.

One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. We ordered from the DineLA menu. Would definitely recommend the chicken, pork meat balls and salads. The desserts were also fabulous. I will definitely go back for dinner or brunch.

Good pizza, not a good burger. Great gin with blackberry. Not muddled. A bit watered down. Ot was good though.

Wife had a vodka and soda, but if there was vodka in the drink it fooled me.

I was a bit underwhelmed by this place. We made a reservation to eat there before a show at the Pantages. The salmon rillettes were very different than we thought they would be by the menu description and the beet salad was just okay. I ordered the salmon entree and although it was good, I wondered where the rest of it was. It was literally a 3 inch square piece with some fennel and olives. That is all for $32? My husband got the cheeseburger and added bacon. That was over $20 and came with nothing else.
That being said, the service was great and I think the Happy Hour deals seemed pretty good. I just found this place expensive for what you get, albeit very convenient if you're going to the Pantages.

Jane Q is a modern restaurant that is part of the Kimpton Hotel. We dined during happy hour which made pricing awesome. 4$ Pinot Noir and 6$ appetizers that were very good. The dinner menu is limited, but the options we tried were really good. I had the salmon with a beet salad. Delicious. Our server was very helpful in making decisions and recommendations that fit our taste and budget. The happy hour is the best deal and highly recommended. Very nice and friendly staff. I would definitely dine here again.

Enjoyed dinner at Jan Q's prior to a show at the Pantages theater. It's a short walk from the theater so I was able to get good parking at theater lot.

Happy hour and prefix menu's were great. Staff was very attentive and being that this is in a "pet friendly" hotel, we were able to meet some cute puppies between courses.

Flat iron steak was great, garlic knot appetizer was addictive.,....save room for the bread pudding!

I would recommend this restaurant for date night or theater night.

We had dinner here before going to the Pantages. It will now become my go to pre-theatre dinner spot since it's conveniently located a few blocks from the theatre, the food and service was great, and we took advantage of the prix fixe theatre menu, which was a great deal!

Loved the quaint restaurant. It's in the hotel, so you will miss it if you don't know where it's located off Yucca St. We shared the margarita pizza and the cheese board and they were both fantastic. The waiter was attentive and nice. Would recommend to friends and family and would go back!

New York strip for $40 should not be dry.

Appetizer of shrimp and yoghurt made absolutely no sense

Beef carpaccio reminded me of lunch meat

Bone marrow was very bland

Service was lacking

As a new alternative to a pre-movie meal before heading to the ArcLight Hollywood, Jane Q is a good option. The casual setting with a full & interesting cocktail bar with a menu of lighter fairs is quite nice. However, the meal portions are small and some reinterpreted items (like the truffle calzone) just don’t work. The deserts are plentiful and sweet.

My wife and I were able to get last minute reservations (booked 3 hours before we dined) which was a great since there was a show at the Pantages that night. We needed to be in and out in 45 minutes since we were heading to a show at the Pantages down the street and the staff did amazing to serve us quickly without feeling too rushed eventhough we showed up a few minutes late.
The food was very good, great place to get a few shareable and try many items on the menu. We had carpaccio, meatballs, pear & burrata cheese, and a small pizza and everything was delicious. This will likely become our new pre-theater favorite and we would recommend for any date night night.

Beautiful modern decor. Menu is inviting and accessible. Food was excellent, really enjoyed my forest mushroom pizza. My dining companions both had the steak and thought they were excellent, perfectly cooked. We each indulged in a dessert and no one left even a morsel. Of course, I had a lot of pizza to take home so I would have room for dessert. It was great the second day too.

We had wonderful service and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was just okay.
The sea bass was very dry and the steak was thin and undercooked. The garden salad and sangria was excellent.

Had only 45 minutes to catch a bite before Pantages Theater event. Server was so a accommodating and helpful. He alone made our night.

Food was amazing. Huge portions. Drinks were out of this world and truly delicious.

We got the $29 open table menu deal which was such a good deal - the entree alone on the menu was 26.
Oh and surprise - FREE champagne just because we told our server we were headed to the Pantages to see Wicked!!!

Can’t wait to go again - really sweet spot with great atmosphere and super close but totally removed from Hollywood Blvd

My date and I were LITERALLY the only 2 people in the restaurant and it was 7pm which seemed strange. Nobody there to greet us, and we needed to find a server to order with. The bar on the next level up was exciting and great atmosphere and since the ambiance there seemed so much better we skipped eating and had one glass of wine and went upstairs to have some fun before going to see “WICKED” which is right around the corner.
We really thought the place had closed or gone out of business.

Jane Q is a hip and delicious cafe/diner. The cheerful lower level may be fully occupied, but there's plenty of comfortable open space on level two. Order and pay at the counter, take your number and they'll find you. I highly recommend the chicken and waffles, fresh croissants, or anything off the dinner menu. All excellent!

So surprised by this wonderful food at a new restaurant I had never heard of. Love the octopus with white beans, crispy on the outside. Love the brussels sprouts love the salad with pistachios and it’s wonderful French Parisian style dressing. Loved my glass of wine and the salmon rillette. Yummy! The service was fabulous. Will be back
