We hosted a private dinner to celebrate a business matter. The food and service were remarkable. Only draw back (and it is minor) is that the private room was tiny. Nonetheless the staff served us like ballet dancers and we dined with gusto.

Had a nice dinner at the bar. the food was delicious. Would definetely go again. The spot at the bar was not the best due to the draft of the door opening constantly. Next time taking a table.

after hundreds of amazing meals in many. countries , Gary Dankos still holds the title for me . we had the tasting menu where you pick general categories, which was wonderful and allows you to avoid foods you dont like .

Service is great. Salmon with horseradish is overwhelmed by the horseradish. Sorbet is too sweet. This restaurant is overrated and trendy. Go only if someone is paying the bill. Not worth the wait. However, the staff are wonderful.

This was the best food expirience in a long, long time. Better than sex. Service staff is great and has a great humor. Would recommend to anyone who loves great quality food and a fanciful cuisine.

As a foodie and a picky eater…..this was amazing! You can choose over a 3 course or a 5 course meal and it was all simply PERFECT! Great wine selection and I even think it was cheap considered to the quality of food I was given. They send you home with banana bread baked by angels. Service is impeccable and... More

Fine dining at it's best! The food is truly outstanding here. We had the scallops, foie gras, duck and dessert. Every bite was delicious. The service is impeccable. Love to celebrate special occasions at this restaurant.

Your standard fine dining - delicious. The decor is a little dated and it is mostly an older crowd but it is great for special occasions.

The beauty with Gary Danko is that you can either select the restaurant's 5-course prix fixe meal of the day or literally whatever you want for your 3- or 4- or 5-course dinner - you could theoretically just eat 5 dessert courses, but do you really think that's worth it? Granted, I ate 3 entrees, but regardless... * Lobster on... More
