    This was a special celebration, my birthday. The food was incredible and the service was the best of any restaurant we have used. The staff was professional and extraordinarily friendly and helpful. I think of no other place to celebrate any special occasion.

    I took my hubby here for his bday and this was his second time. I’ve been here a couple of times over the years and this by far was my favorite experience. Our server Aaron was outstanding! Everyone was super attentive and welcoming. Food was absolutely delicious and good portions, too. Can’t wait to come back.

    This was our first visit post-COVID and we were delighted to see that the quality of food and service remains excellent! LOVE the unique "choose your own" menu. A few of the extra touches that make Gary Danko special: When the restrooms in 1 area had a (short line), the hostess appeared, called me by name (!) and escorted me to one in a different area. We were struggling to divide the bill among 1 couple and 2 singles, when our server appeared, whisked away the bill, and returned with 3 perfectly itemized bills - much appreciated!! And that parting gift of a pineapple breakfast cake - so happy to see it again! It was a great evening, and we will return!

    We absolutely love this San Francisco staple and go on an annual basis for a celebration. We have dined at this beautiful establishment since it’s opening. With that said we’ve seen a lot of changes and also not seen any. Would be great to see a menu change, and there was a time that this establishment was so well known for such an amazing cheese cart. They had amazing cheeses, the wait staff would describe them in detail, it was served with grapes, toasted bread, honey, and the works. Now, you get a few pieces of very thin bread, a few grapes and nobody really explains the cheeses. They just get wheeled up and you make a choice. A little sad to see that go as that was one of the things that continued to draw us there. It has been that way for some, but we continue our patronage because it holds a lot of sentimental value for us. It would be wonderful to see some new menu items on their menu. That said, whatever you choose will be amazing. The ambience is wonderful as is the staff.

    Filet of beef was one of the best I’ve had. Oysters were amazing, ordered it twice. The lobster salad was a bit of a disappointment as the lobster served was chewy. Overall a great place to celebrate my birthday. Appreciated the slice of cake and mini pastries provided. The pineapple cake was a nice touch!

    Had a delightful evening with cherished friends at Gary Danko. The welcome amuse bouche was truly delightful. The attentive and top-notch service added to the experience. I savored poached oysters, scallops, a selection of cheeses, beef fillet, and the exquisite meringue. The scallops were a pleasant surprise; a first-time indulgence for me. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. We certainly plan to return to one of our favorite spots in San Francisco. Kudos to Gary Danko for a job well done!
