What Insiders Are Saying
Gary Danko is a taste of a fancier, older San Francisco you're probably not used to. Fortunately, it's a very delicious taste.
Delicious meal with outstanding service. Menu has a nice variety of foods to select from. Staff anticipates all needs. Food was cooked perfectly with seasoning that complimented the flavor.
Very fancy with great service. Price outstrips most other restaurants in the city
Awesome! Delicious food. Attentive service. Enjoyed a fun cocktail before dinner at the bar. Gary Danko is a rockstar! We will return.
Waiting a long time to get in and was worth it. Enjoyed the evening, service outstanding
Amazing as always
Gary Danko is an exceptional culinary destination; simply put. The food and the service are exquisite - deeply rooted in the traditional French style, but executed in a way that feels modern and approachable. Menu items can be ordered "a la carte," but all guests are encouraged to create your own 3, 4, or 5-course tasting menu. My wife and I spent 5 glorious courses being pampered in every way, and I wouldn't recommend anything less. For the price and the amount of freedom you are given there is no better way to experience a Michelin Star restaurant!
After 20+ years, Gary Danko’s still got it. A flawless experience with amazing food and service at a reasonable value.
I have been going to Gary Danko for over a dozen years. Although not the most creative they have always excuted their steady menu, until now. In order to limit food costs I am guessing, the portions have become quite small. Seared foie gras was small and not well seared, the torchon was poorly salted and lacked flavor, scallops needed salt also, and the rum cake recommended was way too sweet. This is not the Gary Danko I am accustomed to.
They executed their dishes beautifully in the past with the highest quality ingredients. This time too many rookie mistakes. And who sent out dishes without quality checks? It wouldn’t be Gary Danko. Disappointed.
Andrew was amazingly knowledgeable and guided us through the menu effortlessly.
A great find when on holiday and a perfect way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
From the amuse bouche to the dessert, the food was top notch especially the Ahi Tuna starter.
A choice of Tasting Menu or 3/4/5 courses, the staff were knowledgeable and keen to offer advice.
If we ever get back to San Francisco we will return...
Food well presented and great service. Being in Michael Mina last night Gary Danko is far much better!! There was never a no in any request.
Love the food here! Service very good! Perfect for special occasions!
Excellent service and food was good.
As usual, Gary Danko never disappoints me. It was my Birthday, so decided to be safe and go to my all time favorite restaurant. Everything as expected, very happy!
It was a wonderful experience! Great service and friendly staff, the food looks and tastes good!
Have celebrated birthdays each year and always a special meal. Love the ability to try so many dishes that are creative and delicious 😋
Best food I’ve ever eaten! Will come back every time I’m in San Fran
Everything you think it would be. Food was amazing and service was top notch. Can't wait to go back!
Excellent food and service. Great variety on menu. Great ambience where you can carry on a conversation with your date. We go every time we are in SF
Was there celebrating my boyfriends birthday. He ordered a drink and immediately noticed that there were fruit flies in his drink. I think the server noticed as he was putting the cup down but didn’t say anything. My boyfriend told the server about it and they replaced it. Typically, a restaurant would give you a discount or take it off the tab; neither happened. The expectation at any restaurant is not to have fruit flies, let alone a Michelin star rated restaurant. There was a fruit fly roaming around the entire time throughout dinner. Not worth the $355 tab for two.
One of the finest restaurants in the country, Gary Danko never disappoints. Impeccable service and delicious food perfectly portioned. I have never had a single bad bite from this amazing place. It’s a must when in the Bay Area. Don’t miss it!!
Such a fabulous, memorable evening. After years of wanting to go, we wish we hadn’t waited so long. A wonderful experience of fantastic food and drink.
The food was excellent as always and restaurant staff welcoming and pleasant. Our dining area felt slightly cramped but otherwise enjoyed our meal.
We don’t live in San Francisco so this was only our second visit. If Gary Danko were in our city, we’d frequent it much more often. What we like most about it is the expansive and very approachable menu (we each could have selected 5 items in each category). In addition, everyone who works there from the hostess at the front door to the maitre d’ to the person who took our order, the sommelier, and the people who bussed our table, the service was professional and exceptional. Our anniversary dinner could not have been better, more delicious, served more beautifully or enjoyed more.
was a beautiful moment to celebrate a biz team job well done . babette’s feast without the lottery part ;)
We chose their 5 item option. You can choose a combination of five of any appetizers, salads, entrées and dessert. We love this because this is a great way to taste a lot of different things and the portions weren’t too small or too big, just right. A wonderful wine selection and wonderful service. We will definitely come here for another special occasion.
This restaurant is absolutely fantastic!! The filet was to die for—delicious, and the service was superb!!
Thank you for all the special attention you give your guests! We especially enjoyed the special birthday dessert!
We will definitely be back!
I have read many reviews of restaurants in San Francisco and Gary Danko is always highly rated. I’ve never been to a Michelin Star rated restaurant and wanted an exceptional experience to celebrate a special occasion. This exceeded my expectations in every way from the knowledge and attentiveness of each and every person there to the incredible menu, making this a truly unforgettable dinner. The portion sizes leave you more than satisfied which is sometimes untypical for a fine dining establishment.
Amazing food. Impeccable service. I don't really share on open platforms but if you get a chance I definitely reccomend coming to this place, book early.
My favorites of the night were the foie gras, the scallops, and the lamb, but everything I tasted was just so good.
My SO and I have chosen to celebrate 2 special occasions here already, and we foresee many repeat visits in the future.
The greatest.... as always.
We were stuck in traffic and arrived nearly 40 minutes late but they were so accommodating and we were able to be seated once we arrived. Service was top notch and the food was so well done— my boyfriend is a very picky eater and he enjoyed all of the dishes. They have a great selection of cheese for the cheese plate and the tableside-prepared cherries flambee was a treat. Thank you very much for taking care of us and we will definitely be back! I have a feeling my dad will go nuts over the glazed oysters!
Bartender could not get the dirty martini right. Restaurant felt a bit dated. Food was nice but just felt like it was 1999
One of the most phenomenal dining experiences I’ve ever had, anywhere. Super helpful & attentive staff. It’s unusual to find such a high-end restaurant that feels so comfortable. Chef Danko’s creations are amazing ... I can’t wait to get back to San Francisco for a return visit!
We had a crab appetizer that was excellent, as was the smoked salmon and caviar on buckwheat cake. The seafood risotto and bison stakes with German dumplings were also excellent. The only (small) disappointment was the lemon mousse cake. It was very good but tasted more like cheese cake than mousse, and did not appear to be made during the time we had dinner. My friend had a chocolate mousse which tasted like mousse, and I would recommend that.
Juan is the best!! I enjoy his service and chatting with him every time.
Great birthday experience
Service and food were both outstanding. Splurged on an anniversary dinner and very glad we chose Gary Danko. Hope to come back again when we visit San Francisco in the future.
As always.... superb! From the foie gras to the chocolate soufflé! Perfection again and again! Anyone can present a super meal. But it takes sheer talent to do it every night and with every dish to everyone! I adore Gary Danko!
Amazing meal celebrating our 48th anniversary... and the staff was superb!
