A Lively Restaurant On A Saturday Evening

I always stop by Jardiniere after attending a performance at the War Memorial Opera. I like sitting with friends at the lively bar and sampling a few items from their salad/appetizer/dessert menu. The service is friendly and prompt; the ambience beautiful.

This restaurant is very close to where you can see Broadway shows in SF. We were off to see Eddie Izzard and decided to have a nice dinner. The prices are very high, the service is kind of snooty and the food is not worth the prices they charge. I can think of much better meals that I have had... More

We had the Monday night taster menu. God value for money and excellent friendly service. We had to ask for our wine to be topped up, but they agreed willingly.

Our supper was incredibly nice. The staff was so attentive and even gave us a free dessert for our honeymoon. The food was delicious and worth the trip!

We had a fabulous dinner for our anniversary. I let them know with our reservation that is was our anniversary dinner, and they did not disappoint! We had a lovely corner table and since we wanted to try everything, they let us split everything we ordered. We started with the peach and cucumber salad - deliciouses!

Reservation noted we were celebrating early birthdays for two budding chefs--children (13/16). While this isn't the normal family dinner spot, the manager reserved the best table, arranged for a nice peek behind the scenes, the chef sent a complimentary appetizer specially made for them. Service was quite professional and friendly. Thank you TDJ team for executing this special evening so... More

We were at Jardiniere for a dinner to celebrate multiple birthdays. We had been there before and expected a special evening, and were not disappointed. My wife is a vegetarian, and there were plenty of choices for her. And the service was extraordinary. I'll always think of Jardiniere for special occasions. One hint about Jardiniere: It is very close to... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood 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.
