Our experience at Gary Danko tonight fell far below expectations. Immediately upon arrival we noticed that the noise level was much higher than one would expect for a restaurant of this caliper. We were seated in the room with the bar - so noise there came not only from diners but also from those at the bar and those entering... More

Was our meal and wine costly? Was the restaurant very busy, even on a Tuesday evening? Yes to both, but it was still an amazing dining experience that we will never forget. The layers of flavor in each dish were amazing! In addition, we have never experienced the level of service that seems to be the norm at this restaurant.... More

My husband is a real foodie and he was just so excited this restaurant that I arranged to have dinner there on his birthday. Just terrible! First, the restaurant is super dark, with orange lighting, or as he put it, "is this early or late brothel? I get those periods confused." Then, we ordered. Because I ordered the chess course...

First class service, sophisticated and impeccably served food, first class quality and delicious! Presentation is awesome and surprises abound. A must do for anyone that appreciates excellent food, service and a lovely locale.

Went here with 3 other friends. Waiter is really good and friendly. Food is delicious and you could choose how many dishes you want. This is a must for your list of restaurants to eat at if you are visiting SF.

Finally got around to trying the venerable "Gary Danko's". Can scratch it off the list. Nice experience but way too expensive for what we received. Was expecting a "French Laundry" experience but it just didn't measure up.

expensive, way too many choices, and dismal quality: that's it in a nutshell. indifferent service, and a strong smell of fish when entering the restaurant. drink ordered misunderstood. we will never patronize this place again.

We expected a fine dining experience but the food tasted more like a buffet restaurant. After sending my husbands appetizer back as it was just awful and tasted like Vinegar ( tuna ) we received our entrees which were awful. I could have made them myself at home and they would have been 100 times better. We called the waiter... More

From the moment we stepped through the door we knew this institution / restaurant was going to be truly great and it was. From the supremely light Glazed Oysters with Caviar to the delicious decaffeinated coffee and petite fours this meal was superb. The Seared Branzini was wonderfully crisp and beautifully cooked. The Creme Fraiche Cheesecake with Strawberry Ice was... More
