It was my wife’s 58th birthday and we enjoyed sitting with Andrew at the bar greatly even though we had a table reservation.
Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. Service is always professional and attentive. Most of our dishes on this visit were very good, although a few were sadly under seasoned. Regardless, we had a lovely evening, and will return soon!
Without a doubt the best fine dining restaurant in San Francisco. The food is fantastic and always interesting. The service is impeccable. It’s a little pricey but worth it.
As good as the first time.
Excelente comida, excelente servicio. Recomendable
It just does not get any better than Gary Danko. The food and service were both superb. Friendly, but professional service, and food prepared uniquely and intelligently to let the natural tastes shine through. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special night out.
It is always a treat to dine at Gary Danko. Food and service are always over the top.
Amazing dinner and food! Might just be my favorite meal and restaurant of all time.
The food and wine was fantastic, even for my vegan friend! Very nice service, attentive and polite.
There is a date on the bottom of the goodies(to-go-cupcake). We asked the waiter what that date was. The answer given was the date the cupcake was made, he said it proudly emphasizing how fresh the cupcake was due to it is always made fresh the same day. BUT we have 4 cupcakes at the table. Two had today’s date, the other two had tomorrow’s date. SO two cupcakes were made IN THE FUTURE!!!
Awesome food, drinks, service !!!
A regular favorite for us for special occasions. Never fails to impress!
We were celebrating my twins birthdays and mine as well. This was the only thing they wanted to do to celebrate their birthdays.
Service is excellent and Gary danko delivers. The attention to detail is amazing from coat check to food. It is a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion but as far as food being memorable I definitely can’t say that. But thanks for making our experience memorable.
We waited years for reservations when we finally got them it was worth the wait.....FANTASTIC
Always the be best. Friends love it. I’d eat there ever night if I could.
Always a amazing experience, we have been going to Gary Dankos for years. Food is extraordinary, service is great and is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time.
Heard a lot about this restaurant and it is one of the legendary ones in San Francisco. The food was excellent. As expected, it is expensive and a splurge. The service is impeccable but I gave it 3 stars for service because I asked for a table by the window and was not given one. As we were seated, 2 window tables opened up, both of which remained open for over an hour, so I am not sure why my request was not granted. Our table for 2 was in the middle part of the restaurant with lots of traffic going back and forth that did significantly diminish the experience. Overall 4 stars and of course, at least one visit here should be on the San Francisco restaurant bucket list. Restauranteurs need to be aware of how important seating request are to clients.
Fantastic service and delicious food.
Gary Danko- consistently good food, service and great attention to detail. Thank you for making my parents 50th wedding anniversary so special!! I am so grateful that you allow patrons to set up payment in advance to avoid what I refer to as the classic Asian argument of “No- give ME the check” - what a relief! Also, being able to have a special floral arrangement on the table for when we arrived- absolutely wonderful! Thank you for all that you and your team does!
After 20 years this restaurant has not missed a beat. It is an incredible fine dining experience and is consistently outstanding. The only reason I gave food a 4 star is because we received the wrong dish but it was still delicious and we ate it. You can spend this kind money at other more trendy fine-dining restaurants in SF but Gary Danko remains a gold standard and cannot be beat by newer, less established places. Hands down favorite.
Absolutely one of the best dinners in the city. Service is outstanding and the food is balanced, delicious and always beautiful! Thank you again to all the staff for always somehow making each visit more memorable than the last.
This was my second visit to this restaurant. 1st time was amazing. Maybe it was an off night but the food was not spectacular as I had hoped and way overpriced.
Wonderful evening...fabulous food and service
Another amazing dining experience!
Expensive restaurant but worth the price. Fantastic service and exceptional food.
Food was amazing and the service was equally good.
This is my 2nd time dining at Gary Dankos. And this experience did not compare to the 1st visit. Food was excellent!
I was disappointed in the servers. It felt like they were rushing us thru courses, trying to take plates when we were not finished with that course., and a bit rude at times. They just didn’t seem to like being there. Not sure if I will ever go back.
I’ve been to Gary Danko many times and I always appreciate the great service!!
We had a wonderful time here. We went for our anniversary and had a fantastic meal paired with some lovely wines.
We both had a four course meal paired with four wines. It was especially nice as we both could pick and choose any four items off of the menu. Thus we each picked different dishes and had an amazing time sharing each throughout the night.
The service was superb and atmosphere was very romantic.
My only criticism is the styling seemed dated and in need of a revitalization.
Otherwise I highly recommend!
Excellent food and impeccable service! Our 3rd time back but some patrons can be a bit loud for an upscale establishment.
They were great with our babies! we were a little worried about taking our two years old there, as they had no high chairs and is more of a fine place, they give us bench seats was accommodating and the food was good. Even the baby pasta had good cheese and the kids loved it.
Glazed oyster dish was exceptional, scallops and lobster were very good, duck breast with duck hash was good and fillet of beef was ok. Grand marnier soufflé was over the top.
Kept rushing us to order, would seat us for 3/4 attendees , food only only ok esp for price
Fantastic service! Energetic ambience. And amazing dishes. But very pricey...!!!
Anniversary the evening was stellar
One of the best restaurants anywhere. I'm a foodie, and San Francisco is a foodie town, and Gary Danko still standouts. The food is amazing, with plenty of choices, and the service is outstanding. There is always someone to help you in a friendly and accessible way. Truly an outstanding experience.
The food was incredible and the service was also unbelievable!
Good food and ambiance but very rushed meal. We were in and out in an hour and fifteen minutes. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and should have provided a more leisurely, enjoyable dinner. Two nights later, we dined at Acquerello, which is a MUCH more fabulous restaurant.
Been coming here for years.. Gary Danko is a master and his restaurant is his masterpiece. Everything was perfect. Cant wait to go again.
