I tried to get reservations about 2 weeks ahead of time but had to be put on a waitlist. I was called a few days before we left saying that a spot opened up for us. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time so we got a drink until our table was ready. I love the idea that you... More

My wife and I loved restaurant Gary Danko! We had the four part tasting menu for the wonderful bottle of wine and a cheese plate. My favorite was the oysters with caviar, the lamb was also delicious, my wife love the salt cured for Foie Gras and the quail. The service was extraordinary. Most expensive meal I've ever had, but...

I've been lucky enough to eat at some of the top restaurants around the world: from London to Paris to Sydney, and I can safely say that Gary Danko is up there with the best of them. The ambience is laid back but refined, and the service reflects that - we enjoyed chatting to our waiters, but they were also... More

Gary Danko has been a favorite of mine in San Francisco for the last decade. I dine here about once a year and it's always fantastic. Service is spot on, but never intrusive. Dishes revolve around what's available locally and you are guided thru the menu by the extremely knowledgeable staff. The wine list is extensive and the Sommeliers are... More

Had Dinner here with a great friend for my birthday last year. The entire staff was very attentive, but not overly so, from the moment of our arrival. When I realized I had forgotten my reading glasses in the car, which was parked with the Valet, the Maitre'd immediately brought to the table a display box of reading glasses of... More

Great food and service but a bit pretentious. I would only come back for a special occasion as it is not a relaxing spot.

Over priced and under delivered. That's it in a nutshell. Just not worth the money. There is nothing noteworthy about this restaurant except that somehow they have become the special occasion restaurant - it must be because you have to spend a bundle

I've been to GD a few times and loved it each time. Service and food is impeccable. Very pricey, but well worth the dining experience. Make reservations well in advance. This is one of my most favorite restaurants in SF.

We were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary so naturally picked our favorite celebration spot. We have been to Gary Danko about 3 times before and are always impressed at the amazing cuisine, ambiance and service. This is definitely incredible food with every dish completely unique and amazing. Even the small starter sent out by the chef before you order has... More
