Gary Danko is a taste of a fancier, older San Francisco you're probably not used to. Fortunately, it's a very delicious taste.
Awesome food, great service. Wonderful overall experience for our anniversary. Would highly recommend to anyone!
We celebrated my friend’s birthday here on a weekday. The place didn’t seem too crowded. There were many seats open at the bar which also serve full dinner menu. The host was unfriendly. Bartender was probably the highlight of the night. Once we got to the table the service just went down hill. Not once we were checked up on. The waiter/waitresses literally took our order/ dropped of the food. They seemed understaffed so I didn’t even bother. The food was excellent. I preferred most of the apps over main courses. Food: 4 stars. Service: 2.
What an experience.
wir hatten das 5 Gänge "Menu de dégustation". Das Essen und der Wein waren hervorragend. Die Portionen waren ausreichend und ich hatte beim Dessert kämpfen müssen. Anfangs war leider ziemlich viel lärm was sich, nachdem einige Gäste gegangen waren, jedoch schnell beruhigte. Alles in Allem hatten wir einen sehr schönen kulinarischen Abend. sehr zu empfehlen.
Gary Danko’s Michelin-starred contemporary French restaurant in the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood was a luxurious dining experience to be sure. The clean, stylish and modern exterior was a strong juxtaposition to the dark, moody atmosphere within, where massive floral arrangements, contemporary art, and Buddha statues created a Zen oasis for the mindful contemplation of food. It was a busy night, but Jake and all the staff were extremely welcoming and attentive. Jake immediately put me at ease about my gluten-free concerns informing me that there were many items on the menu that were gluten free and the kitchen was willing and able to make modifications without compromising the essence of the dish. We decided to order four courses and each beautifully plated course was brought to life Chef Danko’s attention to detail and creative use of fresh, locally-sourced products. (Special kudos to the kitchen for getting their hustle on when I realized that I was still hungry after my third course and decided to order a fifth just before the cheese cart arrived!) The wine list was an excellent compliment to the menu and the cheese cart did not leave us disappointed. Overall, we would recommend Gary Danko to anyone looking for a delicious fine-dining experience with personalized service in a Zen atmosphere.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner here. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend for a special occasion.
Always an excellent experience, with items changing on the menu by season. Worth every penny!
Great experience with the meal and service.
The food was delicious as always with excellent flavor combinations on offer for every choice. The service was pleasant and the atmosphere relaxed. They do a great job of making the experience special.
The food was fantastic but the service was too much. They have waiters floating around where anyone can answer your questions or take your order. It sounds nice but it seemed like we would get someone checking in or delivering food every 5 minutes. So it was really tough to have a fluid conversation and relax.
Excellent experience, delicious food excellent and attentive staff .
Lovely, a great place to celebrate a significant event.
We brought a group of 6 to Gary Danko for a family reunion. The food was exquisite as has been our experience in the past. The wait staff were super helpful in wine and cheese selection, and very clear and friendly. This remains one of our favorite spots in San Francisco.
Sommelier was very helpful. I’ll be back.
Best food I have ever had. Service was phenomenal. Prices were very reasonable for the quality you get. Amazing, really made our night on our honeymoon.
This is my the best dining experience in the San Francisco Bay area. The service in top notch fun the minute you arrive until you leave. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is stunning. Yes the prices make it a special occasion place but it will deliver for that occasion.
The waiter customer service very bad ... feel disappointed :(
I noted that it was my fiancee’s birthday when making the reservation, but there was no acknowledgement. While I did not expect anything, I did notice several tables had their birthday acknowledgement with a small cake. It was disappointing that our table did not, especially when my fiancée saw other tables get something and became a little sad that she did not. It made her birthday a little bit disappointing.
Wonderful experience! We strongly recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing. The service is excellent and kind. We will be back for sure.
A great unforgettable evening!
Thank you very much ❤️❤️❤️
When it comes to the finest dinner experience in SF Gary Danko is In the top 3 !!! I have never been disappointed !
Graduation dinner. Awesome as always. This place has been my family favorite for years!!!
Absolutely spectacular! Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone and anyone.
This restaurant is a great place for foodies. Each dish is a great one. Service should get a bit better. We were not asked if we have any food allergies (usually in such restaurant it is the first question), when we were served bread, we were not told what type of bread is it. Some other small issues, but overall the place is really excellent.
One of the best resturant for a while that i like that didnt have to broke your wallet to get this quality dish.
The tatste is spot on and the price is very affordable.
Service is exellence
It was my 2nd times dining at GD. The recent dining experience was rushing rushing and rushing...I have made reservation, not walk-in. We have 4 courses menu all done in an hour. I was not much enjoy the meal!!
C etait,parfait; Élégant ;
Our experience could not have been better. Although this is quite pricey (for the average person like me), it is worth it for a special occasion. The service is impeccable as is the food although I gave 4 stars rather than 5 because my entree, the lamb, was unremarkable. If this wasn't a celebration dinner with friends/clients, I would have sent it back. Otherwise, everything was out of this world and offered generous portions for a restaurant of this caliber.
There’s a reason Gary Danko is my favorite restaurant! It never disappoints!
Glad we were able to experience Gary Danko! Food was great, service was impeccable and overall a nice place! We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary by having dinner there. Dennis, our server, was very nice and explained everything. Even gave me this book with top restaurants around the world because we mentioned that we were going to Prague, Italy and Greece next year. He did point out that Gary Danko's was in this book ;-). Thank you very much for making our evening very enjoyable! Liza & Fred Prado
Gary Danko never disappoints. The menu is flexible and food is delicious and beautifully plated. The staff goes out of their way to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
The best night in San Francisco!
Gary Danko is not that easy to book, but it’s worth it! Worth every penny you spent!!! Outstanding food and service! We will definitely go back again next time visiting SF!!!
Birthday for one of the guests.
The 3 or 4 course menu was outstanding. Would highly recommend the foie gras selection. Service was excellent.
The food and service was exceptional! Thank you for a perfect evening. Everything far exceeded our expectations.
Awesome. Hands down the best restaurant I have eaten at!
Everything was perfect. Staff was attentive but not overly so. Food was outstanding.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to restaurant Gary Danko twice when we visited San Francisco in May 2018! We were so impressed by the fine food, wine and friendly staffs. Thank you for the unforgettable evening before our flight back home.
Highly recommend everyone for your great experience.
Lovely dinner on every level!
The food and service was AMAZING. This was my second time here, brought my friend and she was blown away. What a great dining experience.
