An "oasis of excellence" that "never loses its luster" , Gary Danko’s "stellar" Fisherman’s Wharf namesake manages to "mystically balance" "world-class" New American cuisine on a "brilliantly executed" prix fixe menu ( "don't skip the cheese cart" ) with a "superior wine list" and "synchronized service" , leading to a "warm, customer-centric" experience that manages to be "indulgent without a trace of pretension" ; it comes "at a price" , but for "a celebratory experience" in a "gorgeous" setting, you "get what you pay for."

Overall this was a very good dining experience, and I'd give it 3.5 stars if that were an option. Staff was exceedingly professional and attentive without being up in your business, and the atmosphere was nice. What you'd expect from a long-time Michelin star restaurant, and pretty reasonably priced for an expensive restaurant. Some of the food was exceptionally good, some was very good, and some was only okay. Seafood was the highlight; the low point was the main meat course, because more than one of our meats was noticeably overdone. That didn't put a damper on the evening at all, but it's something a restaurant this well-known should easily get right every single time, and the difference between a 3.5-star experience and a 4-star experience.

Exceptional food and reasonably priced for such a well reviewed and well known restaurant. The serving sizes were definitely filling and the quality, freshness and inventiveness of the food definitely rivals other two and three star establishments in the city. A full multi-course dinner for four people came to about $700 (we brought a bottle of our own wine - $50 corkage) which included a couple cocktails each as well (they make a good Manhattan). Two of our guests were piscatarian and were easily accommodated. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back.

Gary Danko is one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco, especially after having eaten a ton of them. Here are my thoughts: Pros: - Price - super reasonable. You can have a meal for $100 without booze, or $150 with some alcohol. That's not horrible in comparison to most places, especially with 5 courses. - Portions - if you order 3 plates or 5, you'll get full. The portions are very generous, unlike most michelin restaurants - Service - very professional workers. Although our group was loud/obnoxious (horrible) due to alcohol, they let us know that we were disturbing others. We toned down and respect their opinions - Living room in the back fits 8 comfortably - great place to have a business meeting - Dessert was amazing. They give you tons of candies/pastries to eat! Cons: - The food is not as aesthetically pleasing as other places. It looks normal, but doesn't have any visual uniqueness. No biggie at all! Overall, Gary Danko is an amazing place to celebrate a special event, or for a delicious meal. Highly recommended for SF. Better than every Michelin 2 star I've been to in SF.
