Sorry but have to write this: a wine list that is completely overpriced. We are being served by the sommolier who opened our second bottle, let us taste the bottle in new glasses, great, and next he grabs the old glass and poors that into the new glass. This man does not deserve the title of sommolier. Never again!

It has been a couple of years since we have been to Jardiniere and wanted to try it again since it is such a lovely place

We arrived early and were accommodated nicely, since we had tickets to the ballet. The oysters, Champagne, foie gras with Sauternes, duck, Russian River Pinot and the chocolate dessert were all superb, and our waiter and the sommelier and others were helpful without imposing themselves. This is our fourth visit and we will doubtless return.

Food is outstanding with lots of flavor, texture, and depth. Good wine selection. Service is great while the noise level can be much depending on where seated. Conversation of other patrons seems to travel. In all, highly recommend fine dining, great date night, and good value compared to similar priced restaurants in the area.

Service was so slooooow for us. Had to remind them I’d ordered wine, ask for a dinner roll (not offered), etc. Pur waiter was nice, but seemed preoccupied by the tables around us (where he was attentive). Didn’t ask how food was or check on us at all. The food was disappointing. I ordered the chicken after seeing it ordered at table next to us. My plate looked like I received somebody’s leftovers! The greens were missing and piece of chicken was teeny tiny. So odd. I also had ordered a side of polenta, but I found it tasted funky. Maybe it had some truffle oil going on, but this was not mentioned on menu. The almond cake was very good. In addition to all this, unfortunately we were two tables away from a very drunk man who would yell profanities (political in nature) and other rude conversation. No one at the restaurant did anything about this, and I thought they should have. It was yelling above the din and meant to attract attention and to offend. I didn’t appreciate this sort of ambiance. So... all in all, sorely disappointed. I had remembered this restaurant for 15 years (the last time I was here), and was so eager to return with my boyfriend. Based on this visit, I do not plan to return or recommend.

delicious food, good service, tons of vegetarian options (even if they are not on the menu). A bit pricey for the food quality,

One of the best meals I've ever eaten in my life - and I say this after having meals in Michelin-star restaurants all over the world. This place was fantastic - from the cocktails to the wine to the service to the end-to-end meal (including coffee and dessert). Loved it!

Perfect restaurant to attend before the symphony. Great service and great food. We’ll be back for sure

The food was good but the service was really slow - especially the wait for our entrees. Luckily we had allotted plenty of time before our show. I also felt that they were a little snooty about the corkage. I brought a very good bottle of wine and always check the wine list ahead of time to make sure what I bring is not on their list. The $40 corkage was not a problem but both my wife and I thought they were a little condescending the way they acted and we have been to a lot of great restaurants over the years.

Food quite good, but not up to past experiences. Winter veg soup was blah. Companion said duck felt like it had been under heat lamp, rather dry. Took 30 minutes to be waited on! Missed past dessert of various small treats. For $, not great.

Have been to this restaurant before a few years ago. Enjoyed it then!!
We weren’t disappointed this time either.

Fantastic. Consistently. Stellar service. We asked for something special, because this was a special occasion. A tasting menu was formed on the spot. All was superb. An epic dining experience for an epic celebration.

We four celebrated a friend's milestone birthday. We had a wonderful, semi-private table to the left of the entrance, so it was lively around us, but we were able to enjoy each other's company, and nothing disrupted our dining experience. The Old Fashioned was ordered and praised, and the rye manhattan straight up with bitters was smooth and most satisfying. The little gem salads were excellent, as were the duck and short rib entrees; the short rib was so tender, it melted in one's mouth. Even the Acme bread rolls were wonderful. The chocolate pave for dessert was incredible, and the red Mencia wine paired perfectly with the entrees. The service was excellent, attentive but not rushed. The valet parking is a great plus. I would very much like to dine at Jardiniere again.

I’ve been a fan of Jardiniere for 2 decades, and always wonder why we don’t go more often. Not tonight, thpugh. The food was adequately prepared but utterly uninspired and downright bland. This classic restaurant needs a shake-up if it wants to retain its old glory.
