We had the 4 course meal both times and the photos below are from the 2 meals. Looking at the menu, we found ourselves in a dilemma as we wanted to try almost the whole menu and were hard pressed to decide as there were so many interesting options.

What were the best dishes? It is difficult to say as everything was good but if I had to choose, try the scallops, lemon pepper duck, the stuffed quail and the strawberry souffle. Gary Danko will be on my list every time we make it to San Francisco.
P.S Gary Danko is opening a Brasserie across the road at Ghiradelli Square - I will be looking forward to it.
