has anyone eaten here? were you pleased? food? price? ambiance?
We were there for lunch early in the summer and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Last week we went back without calling only to find the place closed for vacation.
There could be nicer gardens around town but the total experience, friendly waiters, good food, good wine, and good prices makes it very nice. The overhead grape vines give nice shade and sprinkles the place here and there with sunlight.
Last time we went to le jardin we were treated poorly. When we asked whether there was a table available in the garden the host responded with a curt "No." He did not offer to sit us in the main dining room and just walked away from us. We walked out, never to return.
One of our favorites. Solid , unfussy bistro cuisine served in a warm, relaxing atmosphere by very friendly French waiters that have never shown us any attitude. Great in the warm weather for the garden and very cozy during the winter months in the front room.
thought it was only OK. friendly but absent-minded service, sporadic flavors (v.good mains, bland sides), not-so-good house wine, but an affordable bistro dinner. prolly wont return with all the bistros to try in the 'hood.
