I wasn't sure where to dine once I arrived in San Francisco, especially on my birthday. I came across "Jardiniere" in one of the cookbooks and thought of giving it a try. So I made my reservation and was welcomed by Nick on Aug 23, 2016 around 7pm. I was surprised to learn that they dig some info about me..... More

We dined here mostly due to seeing Chef Traci Des Jardin on many shows. The menu was very interesting with several unique components in dishes. Expect to ask your server about some of the ingredients from the menu. We enjoyed the halibut crudo, burrata, and duck entree. The wine selection is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. Jardiniere truly lived... More

Hubby took the entire family to celebrate my daughter's graduation. The menu was a bit limited while "tasting menu" was promising. I wanted to go for the tasting menu but having a nine-year old with us who couldn't appreciate it would be meaningless and not worth it. Also, everyone must order "tasting menu", in your group or it is not... More

We had a dinner for twelve in the wine room for a special event. The restaurant was good to work with and on top of things from the beginning. We had the chef’s special tasting menu and it was excellent, with many creative and delicious dishes. Our two vegetarian / vegan guests were given nice alternatives as well. The wine... More

We went here for our 40th Anniversary with our family. The ambiance was wonderful, the food was fabulous, and the service impeccable. Our waiter was the best we've encountered anywhere. The chicken and duck dishes were the hit of the evening. Appetizers and starters were all fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. It was a special evening with... More

Went out with a few of business friends when in SF for a conference. Great service, good food, nicely done - even for the vegetarians. The brazilians were so-so about the Salmon so only a four rating.

The location, across the street from War Memorial Opera house was what attracted us initially. We cut it close by getting a 5:45 reservation. Too close. We probably would have had time, if it had been just us. Not so. Pretty much everyone there was going to the opera as well. So the food was a bit slow arriving, and... 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.
