If you go to Gary Danko you can expect perfection from the moment you walk in. I recommend doing the tasting course. The cheese tasting is hard to describe how great it was, just a "you have to be there" kind of experience. The food was just perfect and the dessert just capped it off perfectly. I can honestly say... More

We were visiting San Fran for our 10th wedding anniversary and had booked a special dinner out at Gary Danko. It didn't disappoint! The food was divine - prepared perfectly and the flavours amazing. The staff were attentive and knowledgable and the wine list was impressive! But it was the little extras that made the night for us - a... More

This was our fourth visit to San Francisco and our fourth dinner at Gary Danko over the years, probably at least 10 years. This restaurant just keeps improving and it started from a very high level initially. The glazed oysters with osetra caviar, asparagus, leeks and lettuce cream were sublime, sweet and juicy, barely poached oysters with the contrasting briny... More

I was an invited guest to a business dinner recently while attending a conference and had no idea where we were going for dinner. What a wonderful surprise!!! We arrived for 7pm reservations on time & were informed that there would be a short wait. No biggie, I'm a people watcher & the company was good so no shortage of... More

Gary Danko is THE BEST fine dining option in San Francisco, where the food tastes incredible and the price is a lot cheaper than restaurants of comparable caliber. Their service is also exceptional; all restaurants should aspire to offer services like Gary Danko. They offer great flexibility and customization in their menu: you can choose from 3, 4, or 5...

Gary Danko is one of San Francisco's 'signature' restaurants and thus I was expecting a spectacular culinary experience. The service was prompt and chilly. Perhaps because we brought our own wine. They obviously don't like that since their wine service has a three-times mark up. The food, which is what it should be all about, was average, just OK. Certainly... More

Gary Danko's menu allowed us to create our own prix fixe set meal, and each of us chose three dishes from the selection. My mom and I were the only ones who included dessert: strawberry souffle for Mom and lemon souffle cake for me. The other dishes I chose were the Coconut Thai Curry with Seafood and the Seared Filet... More

I have been going to this restaurant once a year, since it opened approximately 16 years ago. Every time my wife and I, or several other chefs and I go to the restaurant, Gary amazes us with his culinary talent. The potato gnocchi is so light it almost floats up to your mouth. The restaurant sous chefs go to the... More

Oh my goodness...this is on our top 5 restaurant experience list!! The food was amazing. I will say, do not have lunch that day and have a light breakfast.
