Amazing food!We celebrated my wife's birthday, the food was excellent! The place was quiet and cozy..
Great experience!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect birthday dinnerBeautiful, romantic setting - small, quirky, elegant but not polished. Every item on the short menu of fresh local ingredients sounded good. We had flavorful salads of butter lettuce and roasted beets, scallops over minted pea puree, sturgeon with garden vegetables, meringue and chocolate ice cream, strawberry crumble. Interesting, reasonably priced wines. Very friendly service. The front room is next to the open kitchen, the rear room is quieter - both are nice.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSecret Gem!This is place reminds me of the REAL San Francisco. Local glamour and amazing non pretentious, clean, local food. No wannabe hipsters here-true SF glamour and money crowd. The place is small, chic and quaint. Its like having your own personal chef.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAll the ingredients were ultra-fresAll the ingredients were ultra-fresh and exquisitely prepared. Even the green salad tasted as if the lettuce had just come from some p-patch right outside the door. Nothing pretentious about Woodwards Garden -- focus is on the quality of the food. We would definitely come here again, next time we visit San Francisco.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite place for a specialOur favorite place for a special anniversary dinner.

Love it.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful eveningWe had a wonderful evening at Woodward Gardens. The building is old San Francisco and the moment you walk in you feel like you have entered someone's home. We sat in the back room which has a grand piano. The service was excellent and the meal was great, especially the desserts. We had the fried artichoke appetizer and liked it so much we order 3 for our party of six. Everyone liked their main courses but the short ribs and the duck leg were juicy and tender. Overall a great meal and a hidden gem that has stayed special for the past 10 years.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, inventive, freshDelicious, inventive, fresh foods! Love their menu & they treated us so well.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time andWe had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Kept Secret is Out!I still think this restaurant is one of the best-kept secrets in the city. The food is beyond compare--fresh, creative, and delicious every time we've dined. Service is helpful and informative, patient, and eager to please. Food comes out well timed--not too fast so that the wine is poured and then the appetizer served IMMEDIATELY (always a downer as it's nice to linger a bit over the wine and not feel rushed), no extra charge for the (delicious) bread, and portions are ample so you don't feel you've been served a tapas dish when you've ordered an entrée. Wine list and advice on wine parings are great. Prices are reasonable and as for the setting near the overpass--get over it! It's more quiet here than in those trendy noisy joints.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
