Just wanted to send a quick email to say the food at Gary Danko’s restaurant in San Francisco is fit for a king and queen. The service was impeccable. All of the dishes were beautifully displayed and mouthwatering. See for yourself: My favorite of the 5 course night: Branzini with Fennel Purée, Niçoise Olives and Saffron-Orange Emulsion = Oh so...

I cannot say enough about this small, under-stated, well-managed restaurant; the food is the best we have had in the country and we are foodies who travel all over the world. The service is impeccable and except for a small wait, everything that evening was perfection. It does not matter what you order, it is all amazing and we left... More

We stopped for a day in SF before heading to Sonoma with 3 other couples. We were lucky to get a 5:30 reservation to accommodate our somewhat large group. The service was spectacular. Everything was amazing. This is a must stop in San Francisco. If you don't have reservations, we noticed the bar is first come, first serve. Although, that... More

A couple of my all time great meals have been here. Incredibly good food and they do this really cool thing. You buy 5 courses and you can have any course 5 times if you want or 5 different to equal 5. So, as what happened to me was I had the Foie Gras appetizer that was soooooo good. I... More

The food is beautifully presented and delicious. All dishes are prepared to perfection and plated very stylishly without overbearing pretension. Ask and you shall receive the attention you request. All dishes are superb. A special place to dine!

Gary Danko's is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco! You can always count on getting delicious/amazing food! They have a great wine list and great cocktails on top of incredible food! The service is the best and you will never regret going to Gary Danko's! Cheers!

My wife and I came for dinner a few weeks ago. The food is good, the service is great, the wine menu extensive, the cheese cart extravagant. But with all of that, it was not collectively amazing. Living in San Francisco, you hear how Gary Danko's is the be all, end all of fine dining. That was probably true 15... More

I've been here several times and it's consistently delicious. SF has many great restaurants but Gary Danko is by far the best in the city. French Laundry is equal or better (more of a unique experience) but is in Napa. Pricey and hard to reserve. Elegant but not snooty or stuffy.

Everything is good , except a little bit too cold inside. The seafood risotto, foie gras, main lobster, stuffed quail are very impressive . We ordered chocolate soufflé and lousiana butter cake, both of them are really satisfying. The service is superb, oh don't forget to order espresso martini !
