    This used to be one of my favorite restaurant in San Francisco, but now that I came back after 2 years it seems like their quality has gone down. The service is not as good as it used to be either.

    You MUST try the impossible burger, I couldn't tell the difference. Also the tomato salad was cute and the glass of the tempranillo was amazing.

    The tasting menu was like a marathon... took us over 4 hours to get through the 10+ courses but worth every minute.

    Jardinère is mediocre for its price. A salad, a chicken, a chocolate dessert and two half glasses of wine are not worth the hundred dollars charged.

    Monday night special theme dinners. Get a table overlooking the bar downstairs- much more interesting than the street life outside.

    Monday night tasting menu, the burger, the cocktails, the staff. It's just a classy place you can enjoy simply for the food but I go back for the experience.

    One of my SF faves. Gorgeous bar (with full menu). Come at 745 and the bar will clear out as patrons head to the opera and symphony. Best burger in town--if you can resist the rest of this fab menu.

    Jardinière has 3 private dining areas available to reserve. The best is probably the wine room, where stacks of wine line one side of the table, leaving room for you and 16 of your closest friends. Read more
