This is fine dining with a set fee based on the amount of choices you want. Excellent food. The dungeness crab salad was especially tasty.

I was reluctant to try this restaurant with my tween and teen thinking it would be too stuffy for them but we were delighted from beginning to end. We were seated promptly and the maître d was friendly and spoke to us for quite a while before introducing our server. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the service is exceptional.... More

Some high-end restaurants leave you feeling oppressed by the formality and pretentiousness. Not so with Restaurant Gary Danko. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. The staff welcomed us enthusiastically and sat us at a romantic table for two. Unlike Le Bernadin, which we had visited in Manhattan a few years earlier, Gary Danko is small and... More

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...
