    My family planned a special Mother’s Day for me at this restaurant. We reserved an indoor table as it was a very hot day and I get ill the heat. When we arrived we were told there was no way for us to have an indoor table. We were given an outdoor table in the sun in a 100 degree weather with flies circling us. Our waiter was good, but we were told the pizza oven was broken and we couldn’t have the pizza my children wanted. Other food took forever to come as they seemed to have no bussers. Food was oversaulted. We were charged high prices after all that. I would never recommend this restaurant.

    The food was delicious and the service great. My only recommendation is to serve the bobaganosh with pita or bread or crackers. A stand alone dip with nothing to put it on was disappointing

    The service was a mixed bag. The host was very kind about accommodating our reservation (we called to notify them we'd be late) however once we arrived and were sat, it took a long time before someone took our order. After the first 15 minutes, we discreetly waived a staff member down and they assured us someone would come soon. After waiting another 10 minutes, my guest lost their patience and called out loudly to a passing server "Can someone please take our order, we've been here for 20 minutes?" Awkward, but someone came soon thereafter. The waiter was polite and apologetic and explained that all their other tables were outside. It wasn't a huge deal but having worked in the hospitality industry myself, my impression that the waitstaff attending to their own tables around us had the attitude of "not my table, not my problem". When our food arrived, we were missing one of the dishes that we had ordered. This didn't seem to warrant mention but once we got halfway through our dishes, we asked the waiter to just cancel it. They apologized and said the kitchen was running behind. Not a big deal, but we did suspect that the waiter never placed it in the first place because they had popped by our table 15 minutes after we ordered to double check they had gotten it right. The waiter was friendly but otherwise service was ~meh~. On to the most important thing—the food. All of the dishes we sampled were really quite delicious and the hummus is hands down the best I've ever tasted. The menu really is worth the trip all on it's own with one caveat: I had ordered a salad dish and there were lots of little old gooey bits of lettuce slime mixed throughout the field greens. That is an inexcusable way to present a salad in my book. I couldn't finish it, it was too much a pain to keep picking around the slimy bits. Finally, it should be noted that atmosphere/ambience is positively charming. The lovely location warrants a visit all on its own. I'd probably go again. Overall 4/5

    Mother’s Day dinner celebration. Cocktails were well crafted, delicious and a wide variety and thoughtfully curated menu offers plenty to enjoy. The food menu is of high quality, unique and savory ingredients and pairings. Flavors are unforgettable and super satisfying. Service was attended by more than one server which demonstrated a high level. Excellent location, is a favorite and must-do in SA. The carriage house ambience is just lovely and elegant, cozy and being surrounded by beautiful plants of the botanical garden adds another level of gorgeousness!

    Service and food were terrible. Portions were extremely small for plates and each dish was over cooked. They made the tables purchase a prize fixe menu with shared appetizers but brought the same portions regardless of your table size. (I.e. 2 people vs 6 people). Our waiter didn’t come to the table for majority of our meal and we’re uncomfortable as the only question we were asked was are you comfortable with the price. Overall, not a great experience

    Mother’s Day. For a Prix Fixe menu, the food was super slow to get to the table. We appreciate taking our time to enjoy the experience, but 2.5 hrs for a four-course meal is too long… and we got our dessert to-go. The wait staff was great, and the food/drink is consistently very good, whenever it gets to your table.

    We had a 3 1/2 hour brunch on Mother’s Day. Our waiter literally had flop sweat he was so stressed. The food was interesting in concept, but poorly executed. I just don’t know how you can have a Prix fixe menu, and have to wait an hour between courses. Seriously. Shouldn’t the first and second course be ready to go since they were cold courses? There’s some big problem in the kitchen. I don’t know what it is, but maybe fire everyone and start over. That being said, the staff was very nice. I’m very disappointed we missed something we had planned to do in Austin- thinking we would certainly be finished by noon with a 10 am reservation. Not even close. I liked when the waiter brought us dessert in to go containers. What? Like scram? Make like a tree and leave? It’s just such a lovely place. Get it together.

    Food was ok, we did the 6 selection Mezze plates, a focaccia pizza, and the Beef kefta. Beef Kefta was just ok( seasoned but needed salt), the Hummus was chokingly dry. The single best thing we ate here was the grilled cheese sandwich, i don't even like goat cheese but this was a delight. We were seated indoors and the floor where we were seated was dirty and oohh so many flys. The service was a letdown, there were several times, I literally looked and waved at my waiter walking back and forth serving other tables and she looked dead in my eye and walked right away from us. Water glasses sat empty for 15 minutes,i know it was 15 because i started the timer on my phone and waited. pretentious without cause, the staff at the snack shack on the garden's grounds were more welcoming and accommodating

    The atmosphere, menu, service and food was all on point. Very special. We started with six small portion appetizers. Butternut squash. Bruschetta. Naan bread. And three others that don’t come readily to mine. One was two fried Italian flavored balls. They were fantastic. All of these were really nice. The portions are small. We also ordered some hummus. The Greek hummus was fantastic. And we ordered one entrée dish. Salmon. I definitely recommend it. Lived here six years and don’t know why I just found this place now.

    I came for lunch on a weekday with a group of six friends and a service dog in training. We were seated indoors in a private nook with large oval table. It was quiet, and the table allowed for easy conversation. Some of the group are not adventurous eaters, and were slightly intimidated by the menu. I ordered a selection of mezze plates for the table. Standouts were the arancini and lemon ricotta spread, which we slathered on homemade Naan. My lamb burger was cooked to perfection, and the Mediterranean bowl with edamame falafel was springtime on a plate. Some of our group were satisfied with the grilled cheese. The Focaccia was disappointing -a large portion, very thick & bready. (Flatbread or tartine would be a better substitute). Our charming server Brandon was attentive and well-versed in the menu. I’ll definitely be back soon to take a deeper dive into the dinner & cocktail menu, and next time I’ll save room for dessert!

    I love this place! I have dined here twice. Both times, the food was very good and the Server was outstanding. They really do train their staff on how to do their job. I like the menu because they have some very interesting items that are not the run of the mill foods. The wine was good and cold and they have a nice selection.

    Honestly I’m being generous with this rating… the only reason I gave two stars was for the appetizers. Apps were amazing; we ordered every one of them. Everything else was mid at best. I work in fine dining where customer service is a top priority. The Jardin is not a low class restaurant, so I do expect a level of service that’s above a Waffle House at 1am For starters the hostesses seem to lack costumer service skills. I respectfully called ahead and let them know my table may be running behind, even though we were only 3 minutes late to our 11:45 reservation. One of the hostesses made a comment about me calling which I think was odd. Then we get sat and the menus were not clean. Seeing smeared food on the menu is just gross. We ordered every app and they seemed to have missed one of them. Ok that’s fine, mess ups happen. However, it seemed like they had just thrown plain lentils in a bowl and it did not appear as it was described. My parent’s ordered their food and my sister and I’s plates arrived 20 minutes later. My sister ordered the salmon plate with a side salad. They gave her the dinkiest cold piece of salmon with what appeared to be a handful of baby greens thrown and undressed on a plate. We addressed the situation and they came back with a bunch of sauces. Okay great, what are these sauces for? We expected a dish that was as pictured and we did not receive that. We asked to speak with a manager and she didn’t even admit they had made a mistake. She just said “oh ok so we’re just missing the couscous”, when really they just missed the whole dish. She did not offer to re-make the dish or anything, so we just told her to take away the dish. Going back to the service, dirty plates after apps were left on the table even after the main course was served. This restaurant has low energy and their manager is not cut out for the position. Customer service should be priority a, but that doesn’t seem to be of concern. Establishment was a let down.

    Jardín was not the jardín I know. It seemed like a cluster today. The service was not up to standards, and the food was very subpar compared to normal. The focaccia pizza was poor compared to any other time I have been there, and every item came out at a different time. It took 30 minutes to get a drink from the bar, and as I sat, I saw food sit at the window for over 10 minutes. I have been many times, and I will be back, but please have you standards back to where they usually are.

    The main waitress had an attitude. She's the one with red hair. I asked to be seated at the table NEXT to where she wanted to seat us as it was more on the periphery of the dining area; I wanted to be away from people. The waitress said she didn't have anyone to wait that table. So that was a no. My partner and I wanted to drink just water. The waitress gave us two small glasses. I asked if we could have bigger glasses, and she said there weren't any--whatever that meant. That was another no. I asked her if she would keep an eye on our glasses, and she said yes. She did not. Another, taller, white-haired lady noticed our empty glasses and asked if we'd like larger glasses. We got them and she kept the glasses refilled. The red-head waitress didn't bother to take care of the glasses until we were almost finished with the meal. I tipped her, but with the lowest option on the ticket. You give bad service, you get a bad tip. My only regret is that I tipped her at all. I usually tip VERY generously. I have a membership with the Botanical Garden. If I go back to the restaurant, I'll not let that waitress wait on me again.

    Food was average and service was poor. Waitress was not friendly at all and you could see the irritation in her face when we asked for things such as lime to go with my beer or champagne flutes for our bottle of champagne rather than the 2 small glasses she brought us to dring our champagne with.

    It was very warm in the restaurant at 6:00. The server was excellent in addressing this matter and it did cool down some by the time we left at 8:00. I ordered the chicken and the breast was a little overdone but the other piece was perfectly cooked. This was not my first time to dine at Jardin and had not ordered the chicken previously.
