This is my second visit. How lucky to have it located right next to SF Jazz! Had an amazing fois gras appetizer, a hamachi crudo and a duck breast that was out of this world. Superb wine list with many choices by the glass and half bottles. Excellent service.

Superb food and excellent service, we had a terrific evening in the arts district. Nice decor, not over the top, romantic enough for a couple but comfortable for a family.

I eat at Jardiniere about six times a year and have never been disappointed. It's a beautiful setting that puts me in a celebratory mood and the food is excellent, but the best part is the accommodating service. I have had some special requests over the years, like asking for a vegan entree for a guest or needing quick service... More

As high-end restaurants in SF go (I.e. lots of $$$), this is a solid value. The cocktails were great (we had an old fashioned and a cosmopolitan), the food is wonderful (she had lamb and I had fish) and the decor is intimate. It's a perfect place to eat if you're having a swank night at the symphony or opera.

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.

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

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.
