No Michelin star with good reason. So so recent tripadvisor and yelp reviews with good reason. While the environment is lovely, the food was just mediocre. Not bad but simply not at the level a restaurant such as this should provide.

We stopped in after a fabulous performance of Turandot for a drink as the kitchen was closed. We sat at the bar, where the bartender acted as if we weren't there. Very little contact and virtually no conversation. Maybe it was just a bad night...More

Jardiniere has been a family tradition before the Nutcracker Ballet. Last night we went and were very sad to see that it is a very unsocial place compared to years past. Service was very poor from the start, our table had been already given to...More

The wait staff and servers did a very good job serving our large group. The food was very good, a nice selection of wines and good dessert to top off the meal.

Amazing ambience and incredible service with a wine list to suit everyone. Expensive and very popular. If you have the funds and want the best this is for you.

Before heading for our red-eye back home, we enjoyed an early dinner at Jardiniere. While we were with the early-bird crowd, we enjoyed a table on the second level. The foie gras appetizer was very good and we were both pleased with our main courses:...More

Great lay out. Fabulous food. UK size portions so not overpowering! Not cheap, by UK or USA standards. Personal space at tables good. Nice sommelier. Would happily go again.

numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to

The restaurant opens its doors at 5pm so I don't think the bar can be available before that. Even if you try online reservations through their website, the time starts from 5pm onwards...so I doubt it.
