Beautiful Flowers and Fantastic Service – I contacted Mark at Podesta 15 minutes before closing time after FTD fumbled my order and still charged me for their mistake. I told Mark that I needed Beautiful flowers that same day because it was my sweet heart's birth day. Mark made for me the most beautiful arrangement that was very fragrant. I have been ordering flowers for many years and this was one of the best arrangements I ever purchased. All of this was done just 15 minutes before they closed and delivered the same day with out any mistakes. I Highly recommend Podesta Baldocci and I will be using their services whenever I need flowers here in the Bay Area. I guess you can say I will be a life time customer. Believe me when I say that I am a Very harsh critic and I am not very easily impressed. I am Totally impressed with Podesta Baldocci and Mark took very good care of me in my time of need. I know that all guys can relate to this situation so if you are in a pinch like I was when it comes time for your anniversary, birth days or any other special day that you miss; Podesta Baldocci is the way to go. My Lady walks by and smells her flowers and smiles at me.

San Francisco Elegance – I grew up in San Francisco, and one of my most vivid memories was of dressing up during Christmas time - wearing white gloves and hat - and going to Podesta Baldocchi, a small, sharp dash of holiday color and fragrance. It was San Francisco elegance. Although I've moved away, I order flowers to send to my mother for special occasions, and thanks to the fact that Podesta Baldocchi has maintained that elegance, the fresh bouquets always mean twice as much for both of us.

If you need high-quality bouquet ... even on Sunday! – We needed a good bouquet for our pre-wedding photo shoot in a Sunday afternoon in SF area. And, I tell you, there are not many florists open on Sundays! After frantic search, I finally found Podesta, which is open half-day on Sundays. The flower designer whom I spoke with on the phone was very pleasant, and I placed an order of my bouquet, my fiance's boutonniere, and a couple of flowers for my hair. On the photo shoot day, it took us for a while to find out the store, because it's located at a sort of hidden place. But, when we got there, our bouquet, etc., were already there for pick up, even though we actually arrived there a little earlier than the pick-up time. The flowers were FANTASTIC!! Definitely much better than I imagined. That was a good surprise to start with, and having great flowers made huge difference in the high-resolution digital photographs. Thanks, Podesta!! I recommend your store to anyone who needs high-quality flowers in SF area. One last thing I wanted to mention is that most of the bouquet flowers stayed fresh in our vase for more than 2 weeks after the photo shoot (other bouquets usually start wilting around 3-4 days). This shows how fresh their flowers are.

The Most Beautiful Arrangement I've Ever Had!!! – Podesta Baldocchi is the finest around.

For my 33rd birthday, I received the most beautiful arrangement ever from Podesta Baldocchi! It was breathtakingly beatuiful. Notice (not for lack of better words) how many times, I've used the word beautiful?!? :-)

The design was fabulous.

The delivery was timely.

The service was friendly.

I would definitely recommend Podesta Baldocchi to anyone looking for that special something, for that special someone!

Stunning flowers, AMAZING customer service – Now that I have experienced Podesta Baldocchi I will never call another florist in SF again!

I called PB with a truly last-minute request for a very important meeting my company was holding. I had two criteria to work with: I needed the arrangements to be stunning and unique and I needed them delivered at a very specific time (with no margin for error). When Mark picked up the phone I can only imagine his thoughts when I told him what I needed ('high maintenance client' alert!) -- but he immediately said he would do whatever it took to help me out. How rare is that these days! He worked hard to get all the specifics of the meeting so he could pick out the perfect flowers, greenery, etc. And even though my budget wasn't huge and I had never ordered from PB before, he still made me feel like my order was as important as one from his oldest and best customer. Wow!

The flowers were delivered exactly on schedule and the arrangements were truly gorgeous. It felt like they read my mind as to what I needed and yet they delivered something I never could have imagined or described....they're artists! In a meeting room filled with about 20 "been there, done that" fashion execs virtually every one made a comment about the flowers. I was told there was even some competition at the end for who got to take them home.

I seldom get excited enough about a service to write a 'thank you' note, but this experience was so out of this world I had to make the time to write this review.

Podesta Baldocchi rocks.

Most Beautiful Flowers in San Francisco – I just received an arrangement today and they are hands-down the most gorgeous flowers I have seen in my life. Not only is the arrangement original, but they are classy, modern yet timeless and just breath-taking. A co-workers wife has been laid up with a broken foot and I immediately jumped on the phone to order her flowers from the same place! I spoke with the owner who was helpful, courteous, fast, very very friendly and just pleasant all around. I will, from this day forward, be ordering flowers from this fantastic find. Great service, superb quality, you get what you pay for!

"We're too successful to care" – I placed a phone order on a Monday morning, well before the 1 PM "cut-off" for same-day delivery. The arrangement, though beautiful, arrived Tuesday (late afternoon). The date of delivery was significant, as I had added a thank-you note to the flowers which referenced the time spent "yesterday". So the message for a delivery on a day other than Monday made no sense. Had I known that the promised delivery would not have been that same day, I would NOT HAVE PLACED THE ORDER.

I call PB. The woman I spoke to reviewed the order, and agreed that the delivery was late, had no explanation, and agreed to refund my money. She then went to speak to a "supervisor", who refused to allow her to proceed with the refund.

A joyous experience – The perfect floral arrangement was created for our hospitalized coworker. Our Controller went to visit the recipient and to describe the arrangement in a word, STUNNING! It seems everyone who saw the arrangement left with a bit of envy. From the polished, professional person who took the order to the brilliant designer and the delivery staff, my experience with Podesta Baldochhi was a pure delight. Simply put, another example of why Podesta Baldocchi is considered the definitive, premier florist!
