this place is buzzing all the time, literally. In the evenings, especially on the weekends, they do have great music. The tequilas are excellent, and this is a great place to hang out on a lazy afternoon. Or, if you're crazing about tequilas and dancing.

A great place on Santana Row to enjoy an outdoor cocktail and Mexican entrees or appetizers. The drink menu has a great variety of margaritas and other specialty drinks. The watermelon margarita is refreshing.

We were staying in San Jose for the weekend and after walking Santana Row we wanted to sit and relax. We stopped in here and just loved the place. The outside seating was fun and the food and drinks were outstanding! There wasn't anything that we didn't like. Their fresh mojitos were the best we've ever had. The tacos, burrito... More

The food and drinks here were wonderful. The service was very good. The outdoor atmosphere made it very pleasant. As is typical with this type of location the prices are a little high.

Nestled amongst large green shade trees in the middle of Santana Row. Great atmosphere with average food. We were a little disappointed that we were not told by our server it was happy hour during our visit.

The menu is limited but the food is good. The margaritas are exquisite! We tried the chile mango one and it was delicious. The raspberry chambord was sweet and yummy! Would come back just for the drinks.

The setting was amazing. Seating is outdoors, under a majestic shade tree. We were there for an early dinner, and the place was hopping! Then, the live music started, and we felt like we were on vacation in some vibrant location. I closed my eyes, and pretended I was in Puerto Vallarta, enjoying happy hour with the other carefree tourists.... More

No reservations accepted. If you are able to grab a table, make sure your friends arrive around the same time. Because once they hit capacity, your friends may have to wait outside until someone leaves before they can come in. Can get very loud if live music

Last time we visited El Jardin was for cocktails and dinner. This time, we just stopped for a light appetiser and drinks. I had an amazing Margarita that had Chipotle in it I think and the rim spicy. Great service and the waitress told me how the drink was made - clearly forgotten since then. I highly recommend this place... More
