Jardenea is a freshly new, “Farm to Fork Concept,” that practices sustainable environmentally friendly techniques. Our goal is to bring a better awareness of food, health, and well-being to your life while insuring to leave the land a better place for the next generation. We strive to give the complete dining experience with not only the cuisine but our signature cocktails and our seasonally changed wine list. The Cuisine that we create is globally influenced and locally produced whenever possible. Our chefs have a deep appreciation for farm fresh products but also realize these products could come at a great cost and leave a large carbon footprint. While keeping this in the forefront we only source products from the finest farms, fisheries, foragers and artisans that believe in the same vision. The menus are changed with the season and reflect the regional flavors to maximize freshness and minimize the carbon footprint.

Love this place. Quiet so you can hear your friends, great food, attentive staff, nice ambience. I am always surprised that it has not really been discovered by others.

My wife and I went to Jardenea for dinner before a NSO concert at the Kennedy Center. We both had the 3 course pre-fix dinner which was delicious and a good deal. The environment was quiet and relaxing. The wait staff was attentive and made sure we left on time to walk to the Kennedy Center (10 minute walk).

Lovely quiet meal. The server was very good and helpful but unobtrusive.

Jardenea offered a really great lunch menu at reasonable prices and attentive, but not over-bearing service for a business lunch in a quiet setting.

I will go back on future trips to DC.

Have dined here 5 times and each time every dinner has been excellent, also nicely presented. Menu changes seasonally. Quiet, off the beaten track.

Ate here before a Kennedy Center performance. Service and food were both excellent. Had a great 3 course pre-fixe dinner for $44, especially for pre-theatre. Highly recommend it, took an Uber to the Kennedy Center afterward, very close by.

We ate here on New Years Eve before a show at the Kennedy Center. It was very close to the theater and worked out well for timing. We informed the staff about our show tickets upon arrival and they did everything to accommodate our departure time so we would not be late to the show.

The Food was amazing! Everything was cooked to perfection, locally sourced and you could see the attention to detail put into each dish. The Fois Gras and Duck Confit Tartlet were perfect starters. For our main course, I ordered the Strip Steak and it was cooked to a perfect medium rare with a savory crust and tender, moist center! My wife ordered the Sea Bass and it couldn't have been prepared better. The prices are astonishingly low considering the caliber of food at Jardenea. I recently spent about double for a similar meal at another D.C. restaurant and the food at Jardenea was bar far prepared to a higher standard!

I will definitely eat here again and I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an exquisite meal.

Service was pretty bad. Our server was not attentive at all. He completely forgot a couple of requests and other servers stepped in for him for other basic duties. He just disappeared several times. We watched another server that was definitely attentive to his table. He described dishes and offered specials. Ours did not. The other server even had to pick up our check to process payment

The food was okay. Appetizer was better than the main course. The intermezzo was super sweet orange sherbet-like that did nothing to cleanse or refresh the palate. The main course was duck that was rubbery in a chewy/soggy dough. Not worth the price. The experience was disappointing.

The pre theater menu was amazing - the crab cake was artful, large portion and fantastic. The steak was a perfect medium rare and high quality piece of meat. The chefs menu was an impressive deal that did not compromise on quality. (Available 5pm-7pm — appetizer, entree, dessert ...$44). Highly recommend.
