A very pleasant experience. Staff dedicated to please your taste and overall comfort.
Excellent meals and drinks. Well worth the trip whether coming from the city or from far away (we came from Orange county upstate NY)!
A little afraid of "high end" atmosphere when walked in, but the service and staff is exceptional and makes you feel so welcome we moved to bar after dinner to enjoy yet another drink!
Definitely plan on going there again soon...

Daniel is always a phenomenal experience. The decor is very charming and elegant, the food is wonderful, and you are treated very well. Even though there are a multitude of options, we try to get here whenever we are in the city. Save room for the dessert courses.

Restaurant Daniel is one of the finest dining experiences in New York, in my opinion. And Chef Boulud has earned his Michelin stars not simply for his culinary flair and attention to detail but for the impeccable service that is, quite simply, exceptional. It is hard to fault his restaurant - the ambiance, the welcome, the attentive but unfussy service, the amazing food and wonderful wine pairings. And to see a master Chef quietly walking around the tables during service chatting to his guests ...it was a wonderful experience. Thank you!

The raw hamachi was perfect, The cooked hamachi was overcooked, loved the lamb chop in salt with merguez and the beans (generous portion and great flavor). Scallop dish and tuna were ok but not great. The bread and butter are delicious as were the amuse bouche, petit fours, the madeleines and mini chocolates. There is plenty of service and attention and the space is gorgeous. We will be back.

We have been dining -- when we can afford it, with chef Boulud since he opened the first Daniel, now Cafe Boulud. Never disappointed, it is always the most splendid dance across the palate. We keep going back. It is the evenings event. Give him back his third star.

I was gonna propose to my girlfriend here, but I chose not to.
It's not because Daniel is not romantic place. I just had another plan.
But, I mentioned about the proposal when I made a reservation, so they cared a lot.
I appreciate that.
Without that, they provided great service and food.
I'm not a foodie, and I hate to spend so much money on fancy restaurant, but this is the first time I think it's worth.
I think this place will be perfect for anniversary event.

We enjoyed our evening at Daniel. Notably the foie gras presentation is really great. The scallop dish was fabulous. The lamb and veal were both perfect. They sent us home with lovely madelines and petit fours we couldn't finish. They also carefully noted the wines that were paired at our request and gave us the list when we left. The dining area is very nicely done, white table cloths etc. but is not really a warm space. More formal really. We were seated on the upper level so had a great view of the dining room. I guess any criticism would be that the whole evening felt a little too staged as per the service. It did not feel personal, although it was very well executed. Bouley felt more intimate, as has the Inn at Little Washington, both restaurants on par with Daniel. We are glad we went, if you haven't been and you want a very formal setting and very good food then by all means try Daniel.

One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. I took my daughter here for her birthday and she was in heaven. The food and service are second to none. We had an excellent waiter and were pleased with all of his recommendations. It is a wonderful place to go for a special occasion.

Awesome experience. From the concierge to the dessert. David. Mark. Jorge and the rest of the staff made our evening (Aug 1st ) awesome. Will return when in NYC again.
Top notch. Great people loved it David and Jorge were fantastic
Keep up the great service

Remarkable experience. My grandmother and I went out for a dinner-date and we were treated like royalty. Every bit was fabulous: the food theatrical, the service warm, the ambiance luxuriant. We'll just have to be back someday!

We had a lovely time from every entree to service. We opted to have the chef's tasting menu. Worth every penny not to mention, we were given a booklet copy of every dish we had that night. Such gesture is priceless! I highly recommend it, but ready to pay an arm and a leg.

Food was sublime better than any of the reviews and the service was over the top super attentive above and beyond anything we have ever experienced in our many years of fine dining everywhere. They were especially sensitive to and prepared for any and all food allergies and gluten issues from the bread through the desserts. An absolute delight from start to finish in a gorgeous setting. The champagne made especially for Daniel was exquisite.

Absolutely superb in every way! Stunning food and attentive service that helped and guided without being intrusive. The perfect blend of exceptional quality and an unforgettable evening. My daughter was made to feel so special!. If you don't enjoy your evening here, it's you not them!

Daniel is truly wonderful. Just stepping into the dining room is an experience. The service was superior and the food was truly delicious. We were there for my birthday dinner and they didn't forget, making me feel very special. I highly recommend the White Cosmopolitan cocktail (a flower petal in the round ice cube!), and the bison was exceptional! A lovely, special evening I won't soon forget.

Daniel was a favorite fine dining spot every time when we visited NYC in the last 15 years.
With much anticipation, we visited New York this year with reservations at 4 top rated fine dining spot. Daniel was one of the them. Others are Junstix, Soto and Marea.
Daniel was a big disappointment. We were asked to sit at a table by the door initially until we asked to sit at another table. The room was very warm, felt like their air condition was not working. The lack of elegant ambience was immediately notice by our party. I must said that the service and food were still very good.
Half way into our dinner, two little old lady showed up and were seated at the table behind us. Lots of loud giggling and little girl talks soon after they settled down in their seat. we could hear the loud DNC convention speech blasting from their table. Not a single server, manager if they were, bother to stop by to tell them to put their displayed IPone on their table away. This went on for the entire meal.
Daniel by far was the worst experience we had on this NY trip. The chance of us returning to this high end restaurant in the future is very slim.

Fantastic experience. I caught up with old friends for dinner and the wait staff, from the bartenders to the Matire'd to the servers, all took amazing care of us. The food met or exceeded all of my expectations, and we were absolutely stuffed by the time we finished our 4-course tasting menu. One of my friends wasn't fond of seafood, and so they offered him the vegetarian menu and he said it was some of the best food he had ever had even though there was no meat!
A sublime experience I won't ever forget. All future dinners will be held against this standard!

Quite simply the single best dining experience I have had in my entire life. The service--no fewer than a cast of 8 took care of us--was over the top. But, not in a subservient way. Almost invisible characters helping us maximize the Daniel experience. The food was out of this world. I can't imagine anything more that could have been done to make our evening more memorable.
