Gary Danko has been known for its good food and posh atmosphere - but what the ratings don't tell you is the poor service and lack of appreciation for customers. Servers and managers at the restaurant alike don't treat customers like customers - and unless you want to willingly fork up $100+ per person on an average meal, while feeling... More

We revisited this excellent restaurant and were not disappointed.It certainly is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco and amongst the best around the world and not a Michelin star in sight, and yet very worthy of at least 1 star. The restaurant is best described as dark and moody, great for romance or assignations!It really is worth making... More

We made a reservation at 8:30 and when we arrived we being told that they still don't have table available for us and asked to wait near at the bar area where a few people also waited for their table(crowded, elbow to elbow). We waited for good 35 minutes before being seated and we're very staving by then. The place... More

GD is an institution in less than 25 years in business and always packed. But it really is a glorified bistro with a menu setup that is one of a kind anywhere! You can choose 3 items (ex-dessert) from any of the three categories. So you want 3 salads...fine! 3 caviars...fine, 3 steaks, fine! Nobody probably does that but hey... More

Great menu, great service, what else can one say? The menu is broken down by category - fish, meat, cheese, dessert, etc. but one can choose from all categories freely, ie. all meat dishes, all,fish courses or just 3 or 4 desserts.

I have been here multiple times with friends, family and just my husband and me. The food is reliably excellent. Service: When they are good, the service is outstanding, but when they are not, it does not feel like a special experience at all. They are at their best for parties of 2, still quite good for parties of 4... More

We went to Gary Danko's based on the reviews in TA and were not disappointed. We had a great time and actually had a lot of fun. It was a very lively scene with lots of happy people. The staff was wonderful. We have limited exposure to these types of high-end French menus, but the staff was extremely helpful and... More

The food is awesome and the staff was even better. Great night out in San Francisco if you are looking for outstanding food. Get ready to pay for it. Not a place to go if you are looking for a cheap night out. Special place for memorable occasions. Really made my family feel welcome. The waiting staff could not have... More
