I have been working in restaurants for over 10 years, and I finally made it into Woodward's Garden after hearing praise for it for years. The food was wonderful, creative and reasonably priced for the upscale fare. The owner was waiting on our table, and was very sweet and considerate. I had a salmon dish that was delicious, with a great salad to start.
This place is great- romantic and unique. Check it out!
The ONLY restaurant in SF that never disappoints. the service is kind of...er, weird. Not bad but just strange. However, I think the absolute world of the women who run this place. i have never ONCE had a bad meal in five years. I don't go that often but Margie always remember me and what I like to eat and drink. WG has a small, interesting menu, i.e one pork, beef, chicken, one/two fish and vegetarian option (that non-veg folks would also order, as I did on Sat night). They do meats especially well here and the ingredients are top quality. Its the kind of cooking where you taste every ingredient and yet they blend together harmoniously. nothing too fancy or over the top, yet they don't skimp on the rich or the flavorful. The wine list is interesting, affordable and has a few more risky items. Desserts SHINE.
