Cafe Jardin at Sherman Gardens
ExcellentThe beautiful gardens are a wonderful backdrop to the excellent food. Service is A1! It was an overcast morning while we were there and, while we could sit on the patio, it was nice to have the heaters on. It is not a large, varied menu, but everything is superb. You just can't go wrong. It is quite a refuge in the middle of all that Pacific Coast Highway traffic and congestion. You don't hear any of it and just breathe a sigh of relief once inside the garden.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food---nice selectionExcellent food---nice selection and wonderful ambience5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGourmet lunchMaking a reservation on line was so easy. The staff at the restaurant were so pleasant and helpful, making our experience very relaxing and enjoyable. The food was outstanding, truly gourmet and the 3 course meal was excellent value. The beet salad was fantastic, and the flour less chocolate cake was divine!! The view while we ate was beautiful. Our waiter brought everything to us at perfect intervals, allowing us to enjoy our experience. My only advice is to make sure that the hostess clears your name on the reservation when you arrive, which ours did not. I received an email from the reservation service stating that I was a no show. It was soon cleared up, however and no harm done. It was a perfect day at the Sherman gardens!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulAs always Cafe Jardon out did themselves. Food was perfect. Service as five star. Only problem was the wait time between taking the order and the arrival of the food, but with such ambience does it really matter?

Great every time!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Food at the Finest GardenAbsolutely charming and wonderful. Everything about it was perfect. Beet salad was a highlight. Trout amandine was one of the best I've ever had -- cooked perfectly. Thin apple tart was lovely. The service was excellent. We weren't rushed for a second but they came with everything promptly throughout. Definitely my new favorite lunch spot in Orange County... and that's saying a lot! The restaurant pairs with Sherman Gardens' beautiful location the way a fine cheese pairs with a good red wine.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's all good here. FourthIt's all good here.

I HIGHLY recommend Cafe Jardin.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful oasis in the middleA wonderful oasis in the middle of our busy world --- a lovely lunch spot during the week! Always treated like royalty.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Place, But Not The PriceA unique place to splurge and enjoy! Second time went here for brunch, but it's been awhile. They cooked our steaks very rare instead of medium rare. we accepted it. But the mandatory 20% tip AND tax on tip was an unpleasant surprise. Total price for brunch deserves good steak! Will always love Sherman Gardens, though.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect lunch spotCafe Jardin is located inside a gorgeous flower and plant-filled garden setting. The floral display in spring is unbeatable for ambience. We enjoyed our lunch of salmon, crab cake, and beef sandwiches. The menu is reasonably priced and the food tasty though not particularly adventuresome. We stayed quite a long time and the staff were courteous and attentive to the end. There is a $3 per person fee to enter the garden even with a reservation unless you are a garden member.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
