One of the greatest restaurants in New York City, different menu, very good service. The chife like to add pumpkin of the dishes, it was very nice and tasty. Very good atmosphere in the restaurant. I think, that I'll recommend Daniel to our friends.

Best restaurant in NYC. Nice to see Chef Daniel making an appearance in the dining room to greet his guests. The food quality and presentation are second to none, but it is the warm service by the personable staff that makes Daniel such a wonderful dining experience.

The finest dining experience I've ever had. We did the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Each course was better than the last and the wine was paired to perfection. We had many dining attendants checking on us and we wanted for nothing. I highly recommend for an incredible night out. Also very friendly for food allergies.

There was no other experience I've had in fine dining like Daniel. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the manner in which we were treated was like royalty. Ending the evening with a photo with Chef Daniel made it a perfect night!

Sure you will pay for this experience. And I am sure that some will not love the set prefix options versus choosing your own distinct meal. However, it is not one of those overpriced small serving prefixes. Not only will you enjoy the setting, the décor, and the employees, you will be full from your prefix as well as the many chef add-ons throughout the night. I don't splurge on these type of restaurants too often but if you are in the same boat, CHOOSE HERE!

While we always eat well at all of the myriad Boulud outposts, our last two experiences were throughly unsatisfying. At Bar Boulud on a saturday, we had a reservation for 10:15 after a concert that started at 8. The concert ended early and we showed up at 9:45 requesting to be seated early with a smile. The unsmiling greeter responded that she had many patrons with 9:45 and 10:00 reservations that she needed to sit ahead of us, and to please wait in a very narrow space in front of her podium at the top of the stairs. We did, for 20'. After all of the 10:00 had been seated, we went back to her (she was seating people with no reservations), and she said that since it was not 10:15 yet we should continue to wait. Instead, we left (great service next door at the Smith!).
Two days later, we went to Daniel. Our reservation was 10:30 so we would catch a show. They called us in the morning to see if we could go earlier, so that the kitchen people could get an earlier train home. We obliged (and missed the second act). We were there at 9:45 and were immediately seated and quickly served..., until the 2nd course, at which point time seemed to freeze over. It took 20' to get the 3rd and an additional 20' to get the desert. By this time, it was midnight, and we were begging for the check and asking our waiters to eat our desert for us.

I was given dinner at Daniel for a wedding gift. I got married 6/18/2016. What a dining experience. The staff and service was excellent. Top Shelf. They made us feel very special and made sure we were always taken care of. I would definitely go back. They now have customer's for life....

Our second visit to Daniel's and it never fails to impress us. From start to finish it was fabulous. We had the 4 course menu which was impressive to say the least.Our main course was the Foie Gras Stuffed Scottish Grouse, highly recommended. It truly deserves its michelin rating!

The most outstanding dining experience I have ever had. We ate here because of Chef Daniel's reputation. The staff is extremely attentive. The food and presentation was without parallel. We never felt rushed. Meeting Daniel was for me the highlight of my visit to NYC. We will eat here again when we visit. We intend to visit his restaurant in Lyon.

I leave in LA and made reservations for my parents 50th anniversary who are currently traveling from Europe. The entire process of setting this very special evening went without a hitch. Id like to thank everyone at Daniel from the polite and courteous ladies I spoke with over the phone to set it all up, to the amazing staff who made sure my parents had the most outstanding and amazing experience. Their feedback to me was nothing short of spectacular. Thanks you Daniel Restaurant.

Amazing on all fronts. Food, service, ambiance - all top-notch. One of the most amazing meals we've ever had. The service is impeccable. The food is incredible and so beautifully presented. The dining room is beautiful and, although quite busy, the acoustics allow for quiet conversation. I can't think of one negative about our experience except that it was over too soon, despite taking our time and savoring every single bite.

We had an amazing dinner at Daniel. The service in particular was perfection. We were given a private tour of the kitchen, Daniels office and the private dining room. The food and wine was beautifully chosen and prepared.

We came to Daniel to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We have traveled extensively throughout the world and have eaten at many fine restaurants. Daniel tops the list in every category. It was fascinating to watch how the waiters presented the food, to see how guests at our neighboring tables were enjoying the experience and, especially, to enjoy the exquisitely well prepared presentations that arrived course after course. Unexpected taste treats were offered to us from time to time and each one was superb, both in how it was presented and in how it was conceived. There were so many interesting treats offered to us. We were there for three hours, but we were never without something to talk about and savor. It was a magnificent experience, from start to finish. We really can't imagine how the meal could have been improved at all.

The main disappointment is the entree. My friend and I ordered bluefin tuna and veal. The bluefin tuna was not well seasoned and the veal was better, and these two dishes proved to the lowlight of the whole meal. The cheesecake, I have to admit, is one of the best I ever had. A very modern take on a very classy dessert. I alway like going to Daniel's other restaurants like Cafe Boulud and Boulud Sud, but this one doesn't impress me.

Daniel is simply top drawer. From the cocktails through to dessert this restaurant is number 1 on trip advisor for a reason. You are made to feel special, it is more a performance than dinner service. Expensive but you need to try it before you die. A taste sensation .

We came a long way to eat at Daniel's-from Slovenia:) For those who are clueless where that is, check the map (Melania Trump is our product yes, but we don't like to brag about it). We enjoy good food and we try to visit well known chefs and their restaurants wherever we go for our holiday. This year it was NY so I booked a dinner at Daniel's and we brought our fancy suits with us in our suitcase. The ambiance, the service, lighting, overall experience was 11 out of 10. The food was also very good, and the way they put it on a plate was just exceptional, the lay-out, colours. For an European guest to spend 900USD for a dinner for two...friends say we are crazy. Our coutry also has top chefs known worldwide like Bratovz Janez (his restaurant is on the San Pellegrino's list of 50 top restaurants in the world), Jagodic Igor, Volcic Bine, Ros Ana. Bratovz Janez also has two Michelin stars and you would probably be surprised if I told you that his 9 tasting menu costs 80 eur - it's just the difference if you say New York or Ljubljana (capital city of Slovenia). So all in all an experience for a life time, like many others before and after Daniel. We also wish all the best to a friend from ex-YU that made it possible for us to see where the magic happens-the kitchen. Thank you again.
