A special restaurant for a special occasion

This is the finest restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to eat at. We made reservations 60 days in advance which is necessary. When we arrived, the table was ready. Service was very attentive.

We dine at Danko's every time we visit San Francisco. This time we shared this amazing experience with two friends. Danko never disappoints! The decor is beautiful, the atmosphere inviting and relaxing, the service superb and the food outstanding. I particularly like having the opportunity to choose a 3, 4 or 5 course meal with the lead way of selecting... More

Went here for a birthday dinner and turned out to be a meal I will never forget. The service and food is impeccable. They have an amazing wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. Special thanks to Andrew who's recommendations and service were spot on!

We were really looking forward to try their soufflés and we are a group of 6 adults and 2 kids. We found out that this is not a place for kids as we felt not welcomed at all. The pasta that they made off the menu for my son was not cooked through. We were charged handsomely for it. We... More

This restaurant is located near Fisherman wharf (walking distance from Ghirardelli square). Reservation is recommended. We ordered 5-coursed menu. Waiter and waitress were very friendly and great service (better than some 2 Michelin stars restaurants). Food is very good and delicious.

This is my second visit here, and was even better than my first (in 2012), inspiring me to make a well-deserved review. Gary Danko has no Michelin star, but is clearly superior to most of the many M* restaurants I've visited. The atmosphere is lively without being overwhelming, and the service is exceedingly friendly and relaxed. The great thing about... More

From the time we stepped into the restaurant, we were warmly greeted and led to our table. We had the 5 course menu with wine pairing and I was delighted to know that we could pick and choose any 5 courses - did not have to be from any specific course and as the waiter pointed out, we could have...

During the fall of last year our family had the pleasure of dining again at Gary Danko. We have been fortunate enough to have had dinner numerous times and have never been disappointed.
