Expensive. Elegant. Perfect. Jardiniere is a place my friends and I enjoy every year before a ballet performance. It is a wonderful experience and no matter how busy they provide top-notch service, high quality food, and a memorable meal.

Got to the War Memorial a little early so wanted to have a quick drink. Excellent service in the bar and very cozy atmosphere. We will have to come back to get the full experience and have dinner. Highly recommended.

No Michelin star with good reason. So so recent tripadvisor and yelp reviews with good reason. While the environment is lovely, the food was just mediocre. Not bad but simply not at the level a restaurant such as this should provide.

We stopped in after a fabulous performance of Turandot for a drink as the kitchen was closed. We sat at the bar, where the bartender acted as if we weren't there. Very little contact and virtually no conversation. Maybe it was just a bad night...More

Jardiniere has been a family tradition before the Nutcracker Ballet. Last night we went and were very sad to see that it is a very unsocial place compared to years past. Service was very poor from the start, our table had been already given to...More

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.
