We celebrated our 27th tonight. Very special experience. Steve Lande is an elite General Manager. He runs the show...We enjoyed the crab salad, fois gras, seafood risotto, branzino, lobster, cheese course, and chocolate souffle. 99/100. Brian is a very knowledgeable Som. Cole an exceptional server. *Flawless...

Had eaten here several years ago and we were looking forward to being able to eat here again. Ate at the bar as we enjoy a bit of interaction with bar staff. Food again was excellent but felt over priced especially being Australian and having to add 5% staff healthcare then 20% tip and then add 33% to all that... More

Gary Danko restaurant. The food was delicious and everything else about the restaurant failed miserably! I never had the feeling that I was in a fine dining restaurant. The noise level was terrible. I was stressing to hear the person across the table from me. The guests around me were crude and loud. I understand some things cannot be helped.... More

Went with my 3yo the waiters were amazing with him from the first second! We started with the oysters with caviar, the rissotto is just perfect! Then we had the amazing scallops and the lobster which was not as perfect as the orher plates, but we ended with the branzini fish and the bison, both were the best of the... More

A late dinner that wasn't necessary after flying 28 hours (including transit in Vancouver) but I can't imagine coming to San Francisco without dinner at Gary Danko - been doing it for more than 20 years. It hasn't changed a lot, not cutting edge and innovative like Saison, Crenn or Coi but the quality is superb both in produce and... More

We ate here during our recent holiday from the UK. Our host, Suzanne, was very helpful and friendly. The food was great, lovely atmosphere, we had a good evening. I asked Suzanne if I would be able to have copy of the menu to take away with me. I wasn't until I got back to our hotel that I saw... More

This is a beautiful place where we have dined before. While the food overall was good, the Vindaloo was too mushy and lemony for my taste. Service was generally good but not outstanding as it has been in the past and as one expects for such a fine dining establishment.

A friend recommended me this restaurant a while ago and now it is on my top 10 list from San Fran. The place is cozy, sophisticated and the food is one of the best I have ever tasted.

It was just the wife and I for dinner. We walked past the restaurant after doing some shopping, I had read of the place and it seemed fortuitous . We walked in the door and asked to book for the next night, only to be told they didn't take reservations directly and we would need to call the central office.... More
