But this place is a bit high.\r

Pros: The wine list, and the amazing food

Looking for a great restaurant then you should try Woodward's Garden. It's tucked away under the freeway overpass which makes it an interesting spot. We sat by the window and the cars buzzing by was reminiscent of a busy New York street

A friend recommended this restaurant. I loved the atmosphere of the place when we walked in. The menu looked great and the restaurant had a really comfortable, "locals" feel to it. I am not a high-maintenance restaurant go-er by any

Pros: Romantic and cozy.

Cons: The food left a little to be desired.

The food here was amazing. Although their menu is small everything sounded amazing and it changes according to what foods are in season. I am a vegetarian as well, so there were fewer options, but I didn't care because what I could eat,

Pros: Food, homey feel, small and locally owned

Cons: too pricey to eat there as often as you would want to!

I heard such nice things about the atmosphere of this place but it was nothing special. Most of the dishes were tasty, particularly the pork chop and the corn chowder. The wine list had very few moderately priced selections. I don't

Pros: yummy food and generous portions!

Cons: no cons

This place is a fabulous place that gets booked extremely quickly, their wines are great, their lamb is made to perfection--I really love eating it, and my favourite upside-down mango cake is made for your mouth to water! The atmosphere is very romantic and the waiters are extremely kind. You should get a reservation before going or else there will be no space!

The service was poor. The host had the manner and expression could best be described as 'limp'; like someone having a bad hair day. She came bearing the wrong entree altogether, but we were not charged for her "unforced error." Aside

After recently dining at Woodward's Garden, I finally understand what other reviews meant by "weird" service!

We were seated promptly (get a table in the front, not in the back room) and everything we ordered was delicious! Standouts

This is probably my favorite restaurant in SF, and I don't think it gets the attention it deserves. It's small & quaint. The chef makes everything to order & uses the freshest & finest ingredients. I've never had anything I didn't like

The food was delicious, the staff nice and profissional. It was quiet and nice, wouldn't go there with a large group of friends, more for an intimate dinner.

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
