I mostly only review hotels and rarely review a restaurant on Trip Advisor especially in my own hometown, but I felt compelled to write this one. Gary Danko had all the negatives of a chichi fine dining establishment and the drawbacks of a more casual SF restaurant without the positives of either. Yes, the food was solid, but in SF,... More

We all enjoyed the 4-course meal ordered off the regular menu. You had the choice of any items on that menu. Loved the concept. All dishes were expertly prepared and beautifully plated. Great ingredients that offered wonderful taste and texture. This should be 5-Star experience except that the Sommelier was rather opionated with his knowledge of his preferred wines and... More

This Meal was beyond words. Of course it didn't hurt that it was truffle season. I ordered the Lobster Avocado salad and it was heavenly. The truffle risotto was out of this world and the roasted lobster was something to dream about. For dessert I ordered vanilla ice cream with shaved truffles and it was the perfect end to a... More

Gary Demko offers two menus: a truffle centric tasting menu and an a la carte menu. Had the Ahe Tuna ap, delicious. Black sesame seeds, not mentioned, are delicious. The venison and quail are both wonderful. Both soufflés are excellent. The best feature is Jeremiah, the sommelier. Give him your price range and some wines you like, and he'll set... More

This year is the last for Gary Danko. We take my brother in-law to Gary Danko for his birthday every year for the last 12 years. Every year they ask us "is this your first time here?" The menu hasn't really changed in all of those years. While I admit that the food was good, it doesn't change the fact... More

This place is a definite place to go for a special occasion. Yes it's a bit pricey but well worth it if you can afford it, if not save up and treat yourself it's worth it!

This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time, top 3. The staff, food, and overall experience is great. So make sure you have a reservation a few months in advance. If not, you could get lucky and get a bar seat and have a meal there! Make sure you look ahead and know the prices... More

I can't recommend Gary Danko enough. The service is impeccable. The food divine. The atmosphere just right. All this adds up to an unforgettable 60th birthday celebration. Can't wait for my next visit to this magnificent restaurant.
