    Service was not what you would expect at a Dady restaurant. Our party of 5 was crammed into a table of 4 with the restaurant completely open. When we asked to move to larger table they said “sure, go wherever you want”. Food was really good, but just the lack of quality service (and lack of cleanliness of floor and table) just left us disappointed with what could have been a great experience.

    Wasn’t busy when we were there so we really enjoyed being able to chat in normal voices. We arrived on time and the table was T ready even though reservation was made. They quickly set it up. We were very disappointed with the Chef Salad-just a wedge of lettuce with some cashews on it, no meats or extras. Also disappointment with the Turkey avocado Sammy. There was a tiny little bit of avocado in the spread. Would have thought sliced avocados. Peach Belinis were fantastic!

    A pleasant but mixed experience. Was recommended by a fellow foodie, so we tried it. Amazing Rising Sun cocktail with my favorite spice: Saffron! So many layers of flavor! The saffron chicken dish, however, had no saffron whatsoever. The mezze dishes are petite but definitely the highlights here. Home baked pita was incredible. Stuffed dates in very exotic chili oil had me almost licking the plate. The arancini were flavor bombshells. Will definitely be back to give it another try. The large plates are quite generous. I am a fan of the Dady restaurants, especially the ones located in notable spots like the museum and this one in the botanical garden. Open kitchen means you get to have an olfactory sampling of all the menu. Expect your clothes to hold on to the those scents for a while.

    Great experience for ambience and food. The "Greek Hummus" with Naan is great as an appetizer for several people or it could easily serve as a main course for one person. It's a large serving! The restaurant bakes the Naan bread onsite. Good stuff.

    There was no indication when the reservation was made that it would be for outdoor seating - it was over 90 degrees when we arrived at 11:30am, we were first sat with our backs in the sun, upon our request, we were moved to a more shaded table - the hostess said they could not accommodate indoor seating even though there were plenty of empty tables. The service started off pleasant but quickly went downhill - an appetizer was ordered as an entrée (and noted as such to the server) but it was served with the appetizers for the table. Our second round of drinks took over 10 minutes, again the restaurant was not overly busy. Two entrees were served while three others waited over 20 minutes, this was noted to the bartenders as our server could not be found. The other three entrees finally arrived but the other three guests were already done eating - this did not make for good first impression. There was no explanation or apology for this oversight. The food was fantastic and in the end, all six guests said we will give the restaurant another try.

    We were one of 2 tables that were seated outdoors and it seems they were short staffed for the evening. We went in greeted for about 15 minutes. It’s ok because the area is beautiful in the evenings and we knew the food was going to be good. Drinks were not correct when they were brought out and the server seemed a little flustered. It didn’t ruin our date, but we know to expect slow service since this is the second time dining there and the service was about the same the previous time.

    I was on time for my reservation for lunch on a Sunday. We were promptly seated as there was not an overwhelming crowd of people by any means. After sitting there for literally 25 minutes (I kept count of the time after about 10 minutes) without water or a visit to our table, my husband got someone’s attention and let him know we had not been seen. He let us know he would get someone. Another 7 minutes later, a waitress came over to our area but went to a table that had been seated almost 15 minutes after us. This was the point in which I decided to get up and leave. Since I left 25 minutes into my reservation I am being reported as a “now show” which can affect my ability to make reservations on Open Table. I am so disappointed in this experience and expect more from a Jason Dady restaurant. I want to remind anyone reading that the crowd was NOT overwhelming by any means (several open tables, no one really sitting outside) and they seemed to have a reasonable amount of people to be able to cover the floor. I do not think this was an issue of being short staffed. This also isn’t a unique experience for Jardin- this is the 3rd time I’ve visited and the 3rd time I’ve had awful service. As much as I love the food- I can’t return.

    La comida normal, no había pizza y nos avisaron que no había 15 mins después de haberla pedido. El mesero nos atendió bastante mal, muy amable pero se le olvidaba todo, no marcó bien los tiempos de la comida y las cuatro personas que íbamos comimos a destiempo. Muy decepcionante

    Unfortunately the food has declined since opening and service is not mentally present. Short rib was old, tough and over cooked. Broth was fair. 4 of the 6 selections were incomplete to descriptions. As example, figs not stuffed with white cheddar. Asked waitress and she was surprised they were stuffed. Could hear her talk to a cook and they laughed as he stated that he forgot to stuff them. Wait staff and cooks were focused on personal discussions during our dinner and while not mean, just going through the motions as if ready to be elsewhere. We paid our bill and left prior to dessert. Will not return, shame for good when first opened. Horribly overpriced for the less than average food and service.

    Accommodated our group of 17 in the upstairs room rather than outside which was great considering the temp was approaching 100 degrees. Their daily special with added salmon was delicious. Friends enjoyed their meals. Blue crab hummus excellent. Service was good considering we had 17 of us.

    As usual, Jardin was great. It was an 11 AM seating, so we were worried it might be hot, but the shade outside was great and they had plenty of fans blowing as well. I had the salmon, which was excellent. All of their bread is great, too. This was the third time I have eaten there, and it has always been great. We had as guests two folks from Austin who are real foodies, and they were suitably impressed!

    My husband and I had a lovely early lunch at Jardin on Sat. Fans kept us cool, the ambience was perfect at our outside table, the food delicious and the service mostly good. Our only less than positive comment would be that our waitress did not check in with us once our order was placed or after our meal was served. However, we will definitely come again, and happily recommend Jardin to others, most particularly for its food and great outdoor ambience.

    We were Told their pizza oven was broke so we had to choose something else. Salmon was way over cooked as well as the chicken. Our friends ordered short ribs, after some time, we’re finally told they were out. Our reservation was for 5:30 and one of the first ones there for dinner. Service was beyond terrible. Was even told if we wanted dessert, there was no guarantee we would get it. No reason to go back.

    We had 5:30 reservations for patio. They call at 5:15 to say the patio is closed for cleaning. Could that be a surprise? We were then seated upstairs with no service for 20 min. I finally rounded up someone to drink orders. Not our server but at least she helped. We were first ones seated. As they filled other tables they were getting drinks and food. Finally drinks came. We ordered appetizer appetizers that never came. We were going to concert at 7:30 on the same property which they had no knowledge of and we’re not prepared for. We left at 7:20 with no food. Made contact with manager who made all the wrong responses as did the waiter. We will never go there again and will warn our friends.

    I was with a date for whom it was his first time visiting San Antonio. We had an early, 5:30 pm reservation. First off when taking our beverage order we were immediately told that they didn’t have any Tequila, or Emmolo wine or one other. In addition we were told we could not order pizza because the oven was broken. So we ordered several appetizers and small plates including babaghanoush and asked for pita bread for that. When they brought the appetizers they did not provide us with plates and they didn’t bring the pita bread until we asked about it later and were told “we are very short staffed tonight”. Some friends of ours came and sat next to us and after ordering they were subsequently told they were out of short ribs. The salmon was over cooked as was the chicken. We arrived at 5:30 and had tickets to a 7:30 pm concert in the building immediately next to the restaurant. When the server asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu she said “would you like to see a dessert menu, but even if you want dessert we can’t guarantee that you will be on time for the concert”. This was so disappointing as I had high expectations of this as a Jason Dady restaurant.

    Service was poor. Waiter seemed to be new. That's ok! But then she disappeared and the host served our food to us as if we were cows. Just threw it on the table no eye contact no "enjoy your dinner." We were sharing a dish, and asked for extra plates as the host walked away and gave us no attention. The couple behind us was irritated as well. And a table of 4 who was there before both of us never got served. I hope they retain good service because the location is amazing and the ambience is lovely.

    Nice, airy dining room. It was a bit noisy at times, but not excessive. Service was erratic - sometimes very good, at other times lackluster. The Mezze plates were quite good; subtle flavors that enhanced the main ingredients, not overpower them. I might suggest using something to give them a little kick now and then, but, overall the dishes were very good. The Yellow Gazpacho was outstanding.

    They were out of Mumm champagne and had nothing comparable. They were out of pizza. Waitress not knowledgeable about wine or food. She never came back to replenish my tea offer another drink to my friend. I had to ask for ice twice. It took 20 min to get the bill after we asked for it.
