Very nice restaurant. I celebrated my friend's law school graduation at here. My friend was from S. Korea. She enjoyed the environment and foods. Especially, she was impressed with the desserts. I can't say anything bad about their meals. Truly amazing course meals. I would like to come back if I come back to SF.

I have eaten in many restaurants around the world including Michelin Star establishments, I would have to say this ranked as one of, if not the best meal I have eaten! Every course was superb, the presentation excellent and cooked to perfection! The Tuna and Lobster fish dishes were a really delight! You will not be disappointed if you book here

It's sad, but GD isn't what it used to be. Throughout the numerous times we've dine here since 2005, our experience has gone from superb, to decent, to dismal. Not sure what happened, and when I raised it with their manager "Brian", the response I received was essentially a denial that anything went wrong. Francis, Foreign Cinema, La Folie, and Octavia are much better bets.

Extremely diverse menu, with options for those whom love seafood and meat. Really enjoyed the scallops and filet. Cheese cart was phenomenal, with the waiter selecting four different cheeses to compliment our taste preferences. Service was impeccable. This is an extremely elite restaurant, one of the best dining experiences.

An "established" restaurant - nothing to prove and not a victim of fashion.
Great service and beautiful food with a lot of attention to the little things that make the difference between eating out and dining.

Overall the food was okay, no special Wow effect. Disappointed with the bread, it would be great if they are warm. A big disappointment with the service. We make a change on our dessert choices before our meal start, but end up there was a confusion and they send the wrong dessert for my friend. Though the server come to clarify but she didn’t even say sorry or admit that they might have make a mistake, they just simply say there might be some confusion as we changes our choices. Was it my fault? She make it sound like it was. Pretty disappointed for a Michelin 1-Star restaurant.

Delicious Danko! Our meal was absolute perfection as was the service! Best way to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We had the seafood risotto, which is the best risotto ever, crab salad, lamb, lobster, salmon medallion ( amazing!) quail and filet mignon with grand mariner Soufflé for dessert. It is in our opinion the best restaurant in SF! The only negative is the bread- need to do better on that Gary Danko.

Very nice. Beautiful decor and ambiance. The restaurant is surprisingly small but this is not to say that the dining experience is cramped in any way. The service was perfection and the food was outstanding. A lovely experience.
