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 in every way, from the bar to the service. Truly exceptional service, although the menu was limited at 10pm.

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...

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

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.
