Twenty years after opening its doors in San Francisco’s iconic Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood, Restaurant Gary Danko continues to refine its award-winning combination of classic French cooking, thoughtful and inventive use of local ingredients and personable yet impeccable service. “You don’t just open a great restaurant,” says Chef Gary Danko, “it’s a constant work in progress.”
This commitment to excellence and innovation has earned Restaurant Gary Danko its twelfth Five Diamond rating from AAA as well as a coveted Relais & Châteaux designation. The Michelin rated restaurant has also earned several James Beard Awards, including Best New Restaurant, Best Service and Best Chef – California. In a warm, enveloping space overhung with orchids and vibrant artworks, an evening at Gary Danko is both intimate and theatrical—a loving nod to an old-world dining experience with its heart thoroughly planted in the new: fresh, locally grown and raised foods drawn from the region’s vast seasonal offerings, prepared with precision and flair.
