My husband and I love Gardenia! The atmosphere is cozy and romantic, the service is very attentive, friendly, and professional, and yet casual. The "couvert", a small bread basket with it's dips comes fresh from the oven, and we always have to strive to not order a second one in order to leave room for the starters and main dishes.... More

An excellent restaurant in the Alphaville area. Lamb is the specialty and is very good. However, I also tried the tuna encrusted with sesame and was excellent. The Lemon Rissoto was great. The Nutella cheesecake is very good also. Many options in a very nice place. Excellent!

Gardenia has the best lamb plate in São Paulo. The atmosphere is fantastic with a great service and a wine list with affordable prices. I strongly recommend a visit to this fantastic restaurant.

This is a really nice restaurant. They have a good wine list and the staff was very helpful. We had the lamb, risotto and the potatoes au gratin. Everything was very good and the portions were perfect. Our waiter and the staff was very attentive. We will definitely be returning.

We dined several times in Gardenia and loved all the menu items, especially the lamb plates and risottos. The moqueca was also quite creative and tasty. Prices are reasonable, ambience and service is pleasant.

I visited this restaurant last year with my wife when we were in Sao Paulo visiting family. It was so worth the trip out of town. The restaurant's decor is sophisticated yet relaxing. The service fantastic. We had the lamb, it was the best lamb I have ever eaten. The wine cellar...in clear view to diners is exceptional... We return... More
