The Jardiniere is a beautiful restaurants that spread over two floors. It provides top class friendly service, and a nice but rather small menu of fresh dishes. The food was good and we had a great evening. Prices are rather high, but not outrageous.

This is a very romantic and beautiful restaurant that is great for the SFJazz, symphony, opera or ballet. Gorgeous food and nice drinks.

It was pouring rain the evening I arrived at Jardiniere. The restaurant provided a welcoming respite from the storm. We ate at a table on the second floor and I was really struck by the beauty of this restaurant. The tabes were set around a central atrium the ceiling of which glowed with tiny lights. Our dinner was perfectly timed... More

It's location. It's the high arts. It feels like our version of Rome. But it is just a business. Some magic . . . maybe. But it is a very, very distant destination from Rome.

Beautiful decor, very attentive service, good wine list, limited menu. Shared delicious appetizer of chunks of crab in light lemon sauce with small pieces of sweet orange. Enjoyed short ribs with spinach; whole grain polenta. Also chicken with sweet potato chunks, and kale with pomegranate seeds.

A foodie friend of mine says that one of meals in the city is at Jardiniere. I finally made it. For appetizer we shared the crab dip (chunks of crab, really good) and the spaghetti squash (also excellent). They didn't have duck the night I was there, so I went with the short ribs. I also got some polenta. It... More

I booked this place for a romantic dinner for my husband's birthday. We had planned to go to the opera right afterwards. I had requested (twice on the phone) for a romantic seating if possible so that we wouldn't be close to other tables, the lady on the phone said they could arrange something for his birthday so I was...
