During one of our other trips to San Francisco, we had eaten at Jardiniere, and loved it. Not so much this time. I don't know if we were in no man's land or something, because we had two waiters who said they were helping the...More

we continue to frequent the restaurant as in terms of quality it used to lead the pack in the SF-Symphony/Opera/Jazz center area. In its 20th year (and yes we were there back in 1997 when it opened), it is losing it's leadership. The menu is...More

Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.

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.
