“Contemporaryn San Franciscan cuisine”

The award-winning restaurant GARY DANKO is moving into its seventh year with a flourish. The restaurant has received its sixth Five Star rating from Mobil as well as a Relais & Chateau designation, and reviews continue to extol its delights. At this point, most chefs would relax and count their blessings, but not the unstinting Danko. 

"We may be three thousand miles and twelve blocks off Broadway, but what we do here is definitely theatre," explains Danko. "We work hard to ensure that each evening's 'performance' is seamless and magical." 

The well-trained staff has been chosen from the city's most dedicated and professional servers. Their elegant suits complement the restaurant's décor, a mélange of relaxed California modern and Upper East Side chic. This mix is also reflected in the restaurant's style of service, a graceful blend of polished professionalism and straightforward friendliness. 

Danko has created an enveloping, intimate space. The two adjoining rooms are elegant without being stiff, and the banquette seating provides both luxury and comfort. Taupe-toned walls are the perfect backdrops for museum-quality modern paintings from artists Hunt Slonem, Erin Parish, and Angelina Nasso. Dramatic pin-spot lighting sets the stage for the multi-act meals. "I spent endless hours in high school building and painting stage sets," explains Danko, "and I love the drama of New York restaurants. This is the only restaurant I've ever wanted, and I am constantly adjusting it to match my vision of the perfect room and the perfect meal." 

"You don't just open a great restaurant," confides the hard-working Danko. "It's a constant work-in-progress." He continues to hone the experience at GARY DANKO with some striking changes. A handsome cheese case now allows diners to view the restaurant's carefully aged cheese selection. This case is just a slice of the restaurant's expansive cheese service. With a global selection of artisanal cheeses and ongoing classes and tastings for the staff, Danko's cheese service is one of the best in the country. Here, attractive granite cheese carts arrive tableside with an array that includes favorites such as Brillat-Savarin and Reblochon, as well as limited-production "handmades" from Vermont's Willow Hill, Sally Jackson in Washington State, and California's Laura Chenel and Cypress Grove creameries.

My husband took me here the night after he proposed . He said that you need to make reservations well in advance. The food was superb! I would definitely go back if/when I'm in the San Francisco area. It's a pricy place but we'll worth the splurge.
