My wife and I visited this restaurant the day before Thanksgiving. I had read that it was in the top five restaurants in the United States. I got a reservation two months in advance. It is an interesting menu with diverse choices. There is something for everyone. Yet at more than $130 a person, I thought it would be extra... More

After a search for the "best restaurants in San Francisco" and a quick look at some reviews and menus, Restaurant Gary Danko came out as a clear winner in our book. As this was to be a 60th birthday celebratory dinner whilst visiting San Francisco for the weekend, we wanted something truly special. Fortunately my husband's birthday was on a... More

Lovely fine dining experience in San Francisco. I went for the tasting menu - as I usually do at most fine dining establishments. But I found this one to be slightly on the heavier side. In my opinion, it was the meat. So I left feeling absolutely stuffed. The food was delicious though! Definitely recommended for a romantic night out.

I get the 5 course and my wife gets the 3 course. We sit at the bar so we get to observe what others have ordered. It's a little pricey, but worth it. Danko is as good as any restaurant in Napa Wine Country

Both of us our own 3 courses then split the grand mariner soufflé plus they brought a chocolate treat with lighted candle which was also over the top..this place is not cheap but I feel for the quality of the food, it should be back at #1 in SF.. Plus a plate of small desserts and take home cupcakes for... More

We are never disappointed and love the food here. Seasonality makes for nice differences. Great service and the Maitre d' Juan Carlos always makes you feel welcome! We never seem to have enough room for dessert, not a bad problem!

This visit I was not as intimidated by the menu and was able to branch out to more ideas, and, of course, that is the whole point of having a 3 or 5 course meal having ti be whatever you want it to be. Again, the food, the service, the atmosphere were simply astounding!!!! Not inexpensive, but one of the... More
