    The lobster risotto at Gary Danko is a signature favorite. It is always perfectly cooked, rich, and memorable. Read more

    Great food and excellent service--nice for a special occasion. However, the space is a bit out dated and pretentious. None of the dishes were really that memorable

    The food was great! It was my birthday and they gave us a free chocolate cake + muffins for the morning!

    Cannot make risotto. Shrimp were good. Again, how can you be a good restaurant that cannot make risotto?

    What can I say? The food is spectacular. The crispy egg appetizer and Filet of beef were phenomenal. What really capped it off was our knowledgeable, friendly and professional staff.

    The place is small and cozy. We had the five course and left extremely full. The dishes were excellent but the service was one of a kind. Chef Danko really likes to please his guests for sure!

    The butter cake is the BEST. And I have had Maestros and this is better. Great service in the private chef's room. Great champagne and wine choices. And the cheese was superb.

    Awesome experience from start to finish. The 3, 4, 5 course menu gives you flexibility to mix and match (you could do five course dessert). Try their lobster and fillet, you won't be disappointed!

    Awards galore, sublime service, a name that echoes five-star ratings, a killer menu. Yeah, yeah. For us, it's all about the little muffins they give you at the end of the meal, wrapped in gold foil. Read more

    Yes the risotto was damn good, but the Dungeness crab salad and the scallops stole the show.

    Have to do the cheese course! Pick the craziest cheese on there. You may not like it, but when will you ever get to try something like that?

    Corkage fee is $40 and can bring down the cost of the meal... But the sommelier is very good (and cute, young, and Australian!)
