Wonderful experience. Our group was treated well with exceptional service and very well prepared, interesting dishes. A taste delight. Ambience of the room was lovely and the quiet and good table spacing facilitated conversation.

Simply the best restaurant in New York and maybe the best in the country.
The menu includes a wide choice of french specialty items.
The service was excellent.
I recommend the four course option.
For a romantic dinner for two ask for the side seating . This area is private & elevated above the main dining room.

I booked the Skybox at Daniel for my husband's 50th birthday celebration and what a memorable experience the night turned out to be. The Skybox is tucked away, quiet and cozy with lots of Daniel Boulud's personal memorabilia, with a clear view to the kitchen below as the chefs are preparing dinner. We enjoyed course after course of creative cuisine and there wasn't a single item that wasn't delicious-- Chef Eddy Laroux and his team outdid themselves and I am personally grateful to everyone who made my husband's night so special. At the end of the evening, my husband and I were given a book listing each wine and course we had for the evening. Each member of Daniel involved in our experience went above and beyond to assure it was an evening we would never forget. We have always enjoyed dining in Daniel but now that we have dined in THE SKYBOX, I'm not so sure we can go back to the dining room....we've now been spoiled beyond compare. The Skybox is the way to go...Daniel is our favorite NYC restaurant, needless to say!

Absolutely fantastic! The whole experience was incredible. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was spectacular and the wine was delicious. It is expensive, but you absolutely get what you pay for!

I went here for Thanksgiving "dinner" at 2:30pm. The service was excellent, but I was very disappointed with the food. The amuse bouche (bite sized appetizers) tasted stale, like they had been made the day before. For the main course I had the turkey and my boyfriend had the venison. The turkey was unpalatable, I swapped plates with my boyfriend who could at least eat the turkey. The stuffing was burned and difficult to eat. Wait staff did not come by in a reasonable time after the main course was served to check on us. The venison was cooked wonderfully, and the desserts were delicious, but not good enough by themselves for a $500 price tag. My boyfriend left a review that we had lunch there and did not have a good experience. The restaurant responded that they haven't served "lunch" in 15 years. This was an annoying, snobbish, and irrelevant response considering that first of all, the name of the mealtime was not the point of the review, and second the woman at the coat check, and our server both used the word "lunch." I will not be going back here and I will tell my friends their money can be better spent elsewhere.

We arrived at Daniel at 21:45h, just in time for our reservation. We were greeted by the waiter who explained the options of prix fixe menu: 4 or 7 dishes, with or without wine pairing. We choose the 4 dishes option ($142) with wine pairing ($82), and it was the most incredible gastronomic experience we ever had (thank god, since is not cheap!). The dishes were really works of art, with really fresh ingredients and technique for each plate masterful. We ate lobster, duck, wagyu and they even had an extra dessert to comemorate our engagement! Overall, an incredible experience! I would like to thank especially to the waiters that were very helpful and nice with us.

Quelques lignes pour vous redire que nous avons passé une excellente soirée hier chez DANIEL.
Toutes nos félicitations pour votre chaleureux accueil, toutes les charmantes attentions dont vous nous avez comblées, le décor du restaurant, l’excellent service et le délicieux dîner. Mille mercis à toute l’équipe !
Nos hôtes et nous mêmes avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à rencontrer le grand patron et de le voir aux commandes dans ses cuisines. Certes c’est dur d’arriver à une telle perfection mais quelle réussite !!!
Bravo, merci et à bientôt ! Happy Thanksgiving !

The dining experience is almost too amazing to describe at this iconic restaurant in NYC. The food and service are excellent, for a special occasion or amazing dining experience I do not think Daniel has an equal.!

Seriously, what can I say? Yes, possibly THE best food you will ever eat. But the main reason to go is the total immersive experience. The staff is attentive but never intrusive. There is even an odd "family" vibe to make you feel welcome. Make no mistake: this is high-end cuisine and you need to dress up (and sacrifice a paycheck). But you will be treated like royalty, with no whiff of condescension. THIS is what fine dining is all about.

I really, really wanted to love Daniel. The restaurant is beautiful, the service was perfection, but the food left much to be desired. My husband and I both ordered the 4 course dinner and neither of us really loved any of the dishes. I found most of my dishes to be very salty. I noticed there are two other reviews that echo my own sentiment from about the time we were there- maybe just an off week?

My experience at Daniel was once in a lifetime. Everything from the food to the service was outstanding. It was easy to see why this restaurant is one of the top in NYC. Thank you for making my night one that I will never forget.

Daniel is a fantastic upmarket restaurant, more than worthy of its Michelin Star status. Beautifully adorned dining room sets the tone for what lays ahead. Price is high but great value for what you receive. Highly recommended.

A truly badass night. Our mixologist Marcy was darling. Really enthusiastic about the cocktails she was making, and it showed all the drinks were fantastic. The tasting menu with the second tier wine tasting was perfection. The pork trotters and the wine it was with definitely was my favorite of the night. The somm Aaron was so friendly as well as the waiter Chris. The cheese selection was vast and impressive. Being a moderate cheese addict it was like heaven when they rolled that funky cart around to our table. You guys are great and you should feel great. Thanks again.

The service is impeccable and Daniel will offer up an exquisite dining experience. However, on the occasion we dined, the food was good, but not as flavored as hoped. Many of the tastes were more subtle and sometimes almost tasteless with little seasoning. Will I dine again? Absolutely. Will I hope for a more dynamic menu of flavorful dishes. For sure

This s one of the great gastronomic treats of the world. It's a 2 star Michelin, I believe; that's very high praise. We went 'cause I got it on Open Table. I've never been able to get in on the phone. It's always worth t! Delicious elegance..,and the night we were there on a Tuesday, it was mobbed!
