The restaurant itself is beautiful, unfortunately their food and customer service is below par for fancy restaurant. It states on their website they take very good care of their customers, but this statement is false. They could care less for a customer like me. I...More

Jardiniere is someplace to celebrate a special occasion. A little pricey, but worth the splurge. The food and service are outstanding. Enjoy!

This used to be great--on the 100 Best in S.F. list and certainly fine dining near the performing arts center. The whole experience has been declining and tonight was the worst. Had to ask three, maybe four times for bread. Food (both chicken and fish)...More

Expensive. Elegant. Perfect. Jardiniere is a place my friends and I enjoy every year before a ballet performance. It is a wonderful experience and no matter how busy they provide top-notch service, high quality food, and a memorable meal.

Got to the War Memorial a little early so wanted to have a quick drink. Excellent service in the bar and very cozy atmosphere. We will have to come back to get the full experience and have dinner. Highly recommended.

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

The restaurant opens its doors at 5pm so I don't think the bar can be available before that. Even if you try online reservations through their website, the time starts from 5pm onwards...so I doubt it.
