Woodward's Garden [San Francisco]

I haven't eaten here in a decade if longer. I remember enjoying it. But I haven't been in a while, and it's not a place you hear about much. I'm considering it for a 5th year anniversary dinner... Will it deliver?

  1. I really wanted to love it. Charming, under the foodie radar, a women's business.

    But I was disappointed the one time I ate there, a year or two ago.

    The woman at the front of the house who also I believe took our order (and may be one of the owners?) was kind of officious, not as welcoming as I'd imagined such a place would be.

    And while I can't tell you what we ate, it was fine, but none of us was wowed.

    So, if it were a work-a-day meal out, I'd say, give it a go. Maybe you'll have a better experience.

    But for a special meal, I might look elsewhere.

    1. It was nice 10 years ago...but I wouldn't call it special occasion nice even then. I'd call it a very nice, low key neighborhood place with charm. Also the bar has risen since the opened.
