Outside/garden seating in SF/Peninsula (like @ Brix)


Can anyone please suggest a restaurant in SF or on the Peninsula that serves lunch/brunch in a garden-type of atmosphere? (I love the outdoor area at Brix in Napa, but it's not a convenient location for my group...)

Empire Tap Room is one option, but there food is just OK. Any ideas would be appreciated! This is for a birthday celebration.

  1. Foreign Cinema-Outside patio but not a garden.

    1. Blue Plate has a cute little garden.

      Blue Plate
      3218 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

      1. Madera at the Rosewood Resort in Menlo (Sand Hill Rd and 280) has a great terrace with views of the Santa Cruz Mtns.

        1. Bistro Elan on California Ave. has far better food than Empire Tap Room and has a very nice garden patio in back.
