Daniel Ratings and Reviews

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.

As far as my wife and I are concerned, this is the best restaurant in Manhattan, and much further. Five stars are not enough. This is at least 10 stars out of 5. The food is amazingly creative. The service is impeccable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Thank you.

We celebrated our anniversary at Daniel last week, and the experience could not have been more wonderful. This is a restaurant where every detail is considered and every effort made to make the diners feel like they are special, and each occasion even more important. The food was spectacular in every way, and more expert gourmets than I have described every delicious morsel, but for this special event -I would like to truly thank the staff - a highly dedicated group who worked together magically - and with a true sense enjoyment. This additional engagement must be somewhat new to fine dining - I can recall endless waiters parading in constant attention but never seeming to react as people - that trend is clearly gone - and good riddance! The professionalism and courtesy extending by the staff was wonderful - they are engaging and caring and helped make the evening an even greater joy. They were happy that we chose to spend our special event at Daniel, and I can assure you so were we. Magnifique!

We went to Daniel for a 50th Birthday celebration having eaten in many fine dining establishments in the UK. I can honestly say we were all delighted with our choice of restaurant for a special occasion. The standards of service from arrival to departure were fantastic, whether the front of house staff, table waiting staff or the sommelier. The food was outstanding with fabulous extra tasters between courses and interesting and varied dishes, all beautifully cooked and presented. The wine list is extensive but there is good value to be found and the quality at all levels is fantastic. We all agreed that this was the best culinary experience we had ever experienced. Thoroughly recommended!

Beautiful food, outstanding service and delectable wine. What more could you want?! We visited on our honeymoon after visiting Miami and Florida Keys. This was by far the best meal we ate and we did eat at some very nice places! It is pricey but when you have experienced it, you know is was actually a bargain. A must go to place if you're in the area and enjoy good food.

When you enter the restaurant, you're not impressed with the décor, but you can already feel you're in a temple of gastronomy. Everything is classy, the staff is very courteous and welcoming. We decided to stay at the bar first, to enjoy some cocktails. Amazing. We had a cosmo like one with an orchid in the ice cube... Beautiful. We took the 4 courses menu. Everything was breathtaking. I had the lobster to start, you would not expect the way it is prepared. Which is what I love about gastronomy, it is not your typical anything. Then the snacked foie gras from the Hudson valley. It definitely competes with the best ones in France (believe me, I'm French). The bison was soooo tender and full of taste! To add to this wonderful cuisine experience, Daniel Boulud himself came around the tables and chatted with us for a good 15 mn. He is absolutely charming, very simple and funny. He was so kind to offer us a bib for our baby daughter which we had mentioned casually during the discussion. We had an amazing time!
