Gary Danko *****


800 North Point at Hyde

Cuisine: California-French

S.F.'s only Five-Star Restaurant
Chef Gary Danko's critically-acclaimed 65-seat eatery is the only Five-Star restaurant in the city. It boasts a prestigious Relais & Chateaux designation
and is a past winner of the
James Beard Award as "Best New Restaurant in America."

Award-winning sophisticated classic California-French cuisine includes a wide variety of dishes, offered in three-to-five course settings. Portion sizes are adjusted accordingly depending on the number of courses ordered — a perfect way to sample a selection of Danko's creations without overeating.

Standouts include: Seared Ahi Tuna with Avocado, Nori, Enoki Mushrooms and Lemon Soy Dressing, Roast Maine Lobster with Chanterelle Mushrooms, Horseradish Crusted Salmon Medallion with Dilled Cucumbers, Seared Sea Scallops with Truffles and Leek Potato Purée, and Herb Crusted Loin of Lamb with Winter Vegetable Tian and Farro Risotto.

Cheesecarts featuring up to 20 selections of Imported and Domestic Cheeses are presented tableside. What a treat! The last time we experienced such an impressive selection of cheeses
was during our last visit to Paris.

Selection of Imported & Domestic Cheeses

Whatever you do, save room for dessert. The Baked Chocolate Soufflé with Two Sauces is yummy! And if you really want to create a "flaming" sensation, order the Flambéed Pears with Cornmeal Crepes, Toasted Almonds and Vanilla Ice Cream, prepared tableside for two or more people.

Exceptional wine selection — the wine list is over 50 pages and includes over 1,400 fine wines. The Cosmos are pretty terrific too!


Private Party Room
Entertain VIP Business Clients, award your Top Performers, or celebrate a special occasion and enjoy an unforgettable meal in Gary Danko's private room upstairs — the round table seats up to 10 people.

Birthday Cookies

The restaurant's adjoining dining rooms have sleek interiors and an elegant understated ambiance — ideal settings for business dinners and special events. Full bar — they make a mean Cosmo!

Dinner Sun-Wed 5:30-9:30,
Thurs-Sat 5-10pm
Bar 5pm-12am

Reservations are essential. Make them well in advance, especially if you're trying to get in on a Friday or Saturday night.

Food is also served at the bar — a good alternative if you can't get a reservation.

Valet parking is available. Street parking or nearby Ghirardelli Parking Garage.

Excellent service. The waitstaff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Service is efficient, yet not rushed — during our last visit, we enjoyed a leisurely 3-hour dinner.
