Enjoyed an excellent meal at Gary Danko. We ordered à la carte, and everything was exquisite. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, and our table took a little while to get ready, but we enjoyed some pro secco at the bar and were offered a complimentary hors d'oeuvre. Service was so good. Really so good. Not condescending at... More

Restaurant Gary Danko is probably one of the most reviewed dining establishments in the Bay Area on this site and many other sites on the web. The menu is constantly changing, so the food experience can change seasonally course-by-course. The one constant is the level of service and most of the fare; RGD truly deserves its place as one of... More

If you are planning to visit SF, make sure you book a dinner at Gary Danko. You have to reserve ahead. The food and service is excellent. It is close to the waterfront, if you are staying in the Fisherman's wharf area. If you are downtown (near Union Square), it is right on the cable car line,

My girlfriend and I treated ourselves to an evening at Restaurant Gary Danko on our last night in San Francisco. A truly wonderful dinning experience. Quite simply the best meal we've ever had. The service, attention to detail, choice and quality of food is staggering. Every aspect of the whole evening could not have been improved on. We both had... More

Loved the concept of choosing dishes and they will prepare as appetizer, main, etc. Great cheese selection. Flavored are all there, fresh all around. Vale parking a must.

After you get past the pretense ("This is the menu which you can use to build your meal by choosing from the items listed. Get CREATIVE with it, ENJOY it!" which is at its core no different than any other menu at a restaurant and the Gary-worship ("Gary always like to add a little [ingredient] to this dish to make...

Hubby and I toddled down to Danko's place last evening, and we dined like royalty, served by highly competent persons in bespoke suits. We went for broke, both choosing the 5-course meal with wine pairings. Well played, diners. There began a hypnotic ebb and flow of delicious foodstuffs and then empty dishes; showing our best manners, we declined to lick... More

I loved every bite, I loved the service and wine. It was three hours of heaven. I had to be hand trucked out to my cab. Seafood Risotto, Tuna Appetizer, Seafood Curry, the duck and the bison were wonderful. There is a huge selection and lots of direction to go. Sit back, relax, and let the Gary show begin. You...

Now if you want to impress someone special or need to entertain a high end business client than look no further... this is the place to go. The service was superb, the food was to die for, the atmosphere was decadent. you'll not be disappointed here my friend. I would entertain here every time.
