When we went to Gary Danko for the first time, I telephoned to make a reservation for that evening. We were told we could eat at the bar. We opted to do that. It was a wonderful experience. We got to see the food going out to the tables, the bartender was fun to talk to, and the food was... More

It's been a few years since I've had the pleasure of dining at this fine restaurant so I cannot remember a single morsel but I can assure you I will never forget that the food was absolutely incredible. I believe I selected off the prix fixe menu which offered several delightful options. I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy... More

This is a restaurant for a special occasion. The menu pricing is broken down by courses and based on the number of courses you choose. They have a price fixe menu where you can make substitutions. The wine list is enormous. They ask you to order all the way through dessert at the beginning. My wife always starts with Osetra... More

I'm sad to say how disappointed we were. I bought my overseas relatives here because we wanted a really classy experience. Things got off to a bad start when our table wasn't ready. We waited quite a long time, without seating. it was very awkward to be shown the table, but to see the previous diners still eating, wishing they'd... More

Dinner last week at Gary Danko was a wonderful dining experience. The room is gorgeous, the service exceptional and the food is amazing. The staff are all professionals, each one knows his/her function and performs to the letter. The dishes are different and interesting with portions a little larger than you might expect in a restaurant of this caliber. From... More

I wish I could give this place more than a 5. We couldn't get a reservation, but the hostess suggested we try to come in a get a seat at the bar. We did. It was amzing. The chocolate souffle is a must. We had filet with house made gnocchi, soup, salad, and a cheese course. Greatt cocktail. impeccable service.... More

Gary Danko has been on our bucket list and we finally got our act together to book two months to the day in advance to celebrate my husband's birthday. Table of 6, at 5:30 pm seating. We had the five course tasting menu with wine pairing. I had called in advance to request that the menus not have pricing since... More

Long planned dinner for four, made a reservation weeks in advance. Short wait upon arrival then led to a 'corner table by the passage' that was cold and drafty throughout the evening. Nice surprize straight from the beginning: should you consider the set menu, the other guests at your table must NOT make the same choice, but can opt for... More

We were coming to the end of a 2 week holiday in California and apart from a couple of highlights nothing compared to Gary Danko! Strange name but this was a class act. Despite a late booking and a vegetarian requirement for my wife everyone and everything was perfect. Great bar for a cocktail before we sat down to eat.... More

Restaurant Gary Danko is one of the finest dining experiences that I have had. The service was impeccable. We were shown to our table by a friendly host, then were greeted by another staff member who took a drink order. Separate staff brought bread, water and answered menu questions. There was always someone within range if something was needed but... More
