SF Weekly's Description

One of San Francisco's most famous and honored restaurants, named after its award-winning chef-owner, Gary Danko offers prix-fixe meals from its long and tempting seasonally changing menu of French and new American cuisine. There are appetizers, fish and seafood dishes, meat and game birds, an amazing cheese cart, and desserts at this Fisherman's Wharf restaurant. Choose whether you want three, four, or five courses, as many as you like from each category, and they'll size them appropriately (you could try three starters and then a cheese course, if you so desired). Everything will be exquisitely prepared and served, in a charmingly formal (but not lugubrious) setting. There's an impressive wine and spirits list that suits the food. And, though by no means cheap, the tariff seems reasonable for what you're receiving.

    Amazing cheese cart and wine list! -Mary Schmidt Amons, Real Housewives of DC

    Michaele Salahi loves this place! -Michaele Salahi, Real Housewives of DC

  • Always a tough reservation, solo diners and couples can grab a seat at the small bar to enjoy the same three-, four-, or five-course tasting menus the rest of the room waited weeks for. - Inspector

  • Cathy A. on 01/03/10

    Don't skip the cheese cart, it's fantastic!
