Been waiting a few years to eat at Gary Dankos. The wait was worth every 250 dollar bills we spent. The service is probably the best we ever had. We actually read Trip advisor reviews on some of the best things to order. Every thing is absolutely incredible. I will say if anyone can eat more than three coarse meal,you are a animal. I am sure, no one goes away hungry at Gary Dankos. Thank you providing us with such a fun place to eat.

Had dinner at Gary Danko's in San Francisco celebrating a good friend's 40th anniversary. What a wonderful dining experience. Great menu, absolutely perfect servers with very friendly personalities and helpful menu tips. All in all, we had a really great meal and very memorable night.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary here 8 years ago. We were hoping to relive the experience. It is still one of the most amazing restaurants we have ever been to. Our sommelier Freddy, was completely spot on in his suggestion of wine. Something I had never tasted before, but perfection with the dinner. The waitstaff is simply fantastic, always there without hovering. Our appetizers were a bit late, apparently we didn't notice, so Annie brought over some Chardonnay as an apology. The food was wonderful, especially the Roast Maine lobster, which I was dying to have again. It did not disappoint. The beauty of having food that is not over seasoned, allowing the flavors to shine through is an art form. Salmon was also wonderful.
Portions size perfect. Dinner lasted 2 and a half hours and we never felt rushed, only like a welcome guest. Kudos!

Dined here with friends while on vacation in Monterety Bay, San Francisco and Sonoma areas earlier this year. Made reservations 60 days in advance. They called us to confirm and we called them to confirm, leaving nothing to chance. Service was reliable and impressive, not snobby in the least. Was somewhat concerned that the prix fixe menu would equate to small portions. This was not the case. Three in our party choose three courses and the fourth person in our party choose four courses. We were not disappointed in the quality, taste nor quantity of the dishes. The wine list is outrageously expensive, in my opinion, with an expensive corkage fee putting the kibosh on taking your own. Not much room to wait in the reception or bar area so do not arrive too awfully early. We are looking forward to another visit this Fall.

Okay, this place is great. We were only in SF for a couple of days and made reservations for dinner here and at Fleur De Lys. Gary Danko won hands down EVEN THOUGH we had reservations and then had to wait like 25 minutes for our table. Why, you ask?

-They felt really bad we had to wait and checked on us over and over to make sure we were okay.

-They gave us a discount on the bill.

-It was around the holiday season and the ambiance was impeccable (glittery horse, baubles, etc.).

-Oh yeah...every amuse bouche and course was delicious! I liked the food better here.
