Many reviews on TA tout aspects of this place, and I fully agree with the accolades. It is a very special place. Besides the excellent dishes, this restaurant has a unique warmth from the interaction between the waitstaff and the diner. Basically, the staff exudes a familial sense of caring that is hard to find nowadays in fine restaurants. Also,... More

Restaurant Gary Danko serves wonderful, creative food in an elegant but fun setting. There is both a regular menu and a vegetarian alternative. You can select from several options to create a 3, 4 or 5 course meal. Portions are appropriate for the number of courses you've selected. This is an expensive place to eat, but well worth it for...

We culminated our 16th BD celebration trip to SF for our son with dinner at Gary Danko. We are returning customers of the restaurant and were reminded as to why we return. The service was perfect: enough contact to address our needs without hovering: thank you Shelley. Each of our 4 courses were visually appetizing as well as unbelievably tasty.... More

We had a celebratory meal here at the end of our US road trip. We were worried about the dress code as we were travelling with teenage boys who didn't have smart jackets but received a reassuring message in response to our query, as it happens it didn't matter as several other diners were dressed casually. The service was very... More
