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...

the restaurant is on the corner of the concert hall; service and food are very good; they make sure you are ready on time; everything we ordered was excellent!

Overall very good restaurant with well prepared dishes and excellent wine service. Nice setting and good feel make this a nice choice in San Francisco. All dishes were tasty and the ingredients excellent. Short ribs were divine. Service was a little off but overall not bad. Nice spot in the city.

Years ago I had some decent meals at Jardiniere. Those days are gone. A recent dinner was embarrassingly bad. The dishes were overly fussy, seemingly struggling to make a statement of some kind. But it was the laughable portions the offended the most. A rabbit main course offering a single slice of stuffed rabbit, cut into a round no more... More

We planned to go to a concert and searched for a restaurant near the venue. Jardinere was across the street but more importantly, it was a wonderful restaurant. The brick facade was great looking and the restaurant carried the look to the upper level. We entered the restaurant near the bar and walked to the second floor to be seated... More

This restaurant is a gourmet's delight. Very fine food in a formal atmoshpere. Great for special occasions. Try to go when there is not a symphony or opera crown, because it gets more intimate and romantic then.

First timer and could not have been happier with the food and service. I prepared for traditional heavy french food and snobby service but saw nothing of the kind. While the menu is limited, the reason is clearly becuase each dish is very carefully thought out. If you want huge dishes, this may not be for you, but each of... More

Thank you for joining us. I am so happy to hear that your first visit was a memorable one. It is true...the chef takes time developing each dish with the freshest ingredients, and I am glad it showed. We hope to welcome you back to the restaurant soon. Best, Nick Di More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
