Daniel Ratings and Reviews

Daniel lives up to his reputation as one of the leading chefs in New York. Save up and go for the four course prix fix menu. Ask for help with the wine list. It's like the Manhattan phone book.
We had a gift certificate from our daughters and still spent hundreds. But for once every couple of years, if you can afford it- Go.

We were on a trip to NYC to celebrate a significant birthday and anniversary and Daniel was recommended to us. It did not disappoint! The food, of course, was truly outstanding but more than that, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The ambience was relaxing and they made us feel special - an amazing experience. If you get the chance - go there!

What an amazing experience. I just took my wife here for her 40th Birthday. Every moment was an experience. From the initial reservation to our departure from the restaurant. This is a must for anyone who loves fine dining. We each had the 7 course tasting menu. I had mine with the wine paring. Each person who we interacted with was so professional. Every course was so well presented. The wine chosen for each course was just perfect. Although this restaurant is very expensive you absolutely get what you pay for. We have no problem paying for such great food and world class service. I hope that we have an occasion to come back. Thank you for a very memorable experience.

A consistently disappointing restaurant that I return to every few years vainly hoping to experience the excellence a young Daniel Boulud uniformly delivered as chef de cuisine at Le Cirque. After an hour's wait a fill in dish arrived by way of apology as we waited for our first course. An uninspired terrine of chicken and foie gras eventually arrived. Later, one postage stamp morsel passed for 'sweetbreads'. Then a tiny medallion of wagyu beef that after two attempts was still overcooked and flavorless. When the bread is the best dish of the night you need not dwell on the rest.

The service was very formal and very well informed. The lady is off gluten and as i mentioned this when I made the reso, they were careful to point out the desserts she could have, but honoured the request with out mention before that point. The wine pairings included some not obvious wines, and were all delicious. The food was outstanding..... intelligently designed, perpared and presented.
Easily our favorite meal this trip to New York!

Extremely elegant restaurant with amazing and creative food, supported by outstanding service, close to an old world style. We have enjoyed the food several times before and this time was just as good, but the service was even better than our last visit. Everyone was so welcoming and attentive, it made you feel very much at home.
The wine list is also incredible but don't forget to bring your black card if you plan on ordering a special bottle.
Despite the higher relative price for a dinner at Daniel than many other restaurants, it is an outstanding value for what you get.
We hope to be back soon and at the same table with the same captain-Victor.
Thank you, Daniel Boulud

We enjoyed the food but as with all Tasting Menu's there will always be some courses that stimulate and others that don't.
What really impressed me was the wine pairing. Some of the wines I would not drink on thier own but with the food they were excellent. Well done!
The restaurant is pleasant and welcoming but most of all I love the noise level. No loud music to stifle conversation.
All in all a very good experience and I hope to return on my next visit to NYC.

We needed to interrogate the server to understand what to order, my husband showed discontented with his wine and food and little was made after paying almost 500 between food and wine he just asked for the check and it was his birthday, no one tried to fix anything.

We enjoyed a wonderful Birthday celebration at Daniel. The tasting menu was incredible and delicious even though the courses came a bit too fast for my taste. The wine pairing was very well done, even though once again a bit too fast to fully enjoy. We had a seat at a table with a lovely view of the whole dining room, which made us feel special. The atmosphere is quite calm and relaxing. The staff was very attentive, although once in a while stumped when I asked about a specific ingredient or more information. Everyone was very polite and considerate, but could have been more warm and less clinical when addressing us at the table. It is definitely a place for a special occasion unless your pockets are lined with cash, but it was well worth it. The lovely touch of receiving a printout of our menu and a delicious canellé to take home made it extra special. We ate it the next day and it reminded us of all the delicious things we had the night before.

If you are looking for an amazing food experience & the best customer service, this is definitely the place to go. I Did not love one of my plates & they wanted to make me a different one but I was just too full. Mynor and his team made this dinner one to remember! We look forward to going back.

Daniel exceeded my expectations. The food and service were outstanding. The homard first course, the escargot for the second course and the lapin for the third course were all excellent. The cheese course was memorable and the wine pairings were all extremely good. Although we have dined at a number of Daniel Boulud's other restaurants, Daniel is in a class by itself and will now be one of our favorite restaurants throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Just an excellent experience from the moment I walked in the door until the moment I left the restaurant. The service, the ambience, and of course, the food all were top notch. Restaurant Daniel deserves all the accolades it has garnered, and based upon this experience, will continue to excel in the years ahead.

Service is exceptional and there were a few personal touches as they knew it was our anniversary and made us feel special (thank you). Also accommodated for pregnancy diet which was really appreciated.
Courses are larger than expected for a fine dining establishment so try to leave room for the phenomenal desserts. Restaurant is stiff, but to be expected. Would recommend a drink in the bar beforehand. Great mocktails.

This was our first visit to Daniel although we have been aware of its wonderful reputation and ratings for years.
My first impression upon entering was that of dignified elegance.
The staff made us feel as if we were honored guests. They efficiently and professionally served us but were never intrusive. They seemed to sense our needs even before we were aware of them! The level of service was the most impressive that we have ever experienced in a New York City restaurant!
Overall the food was excellent, although the first courses were a bit too subtle for our palates.
Naturally, this was not an inexpensive evening. However, it was wonderful and memorable.
We are looking forward to our next visit.

The food for each course was prepared perfectly, with exceptional finesse and a lot of creativity. The service was impeccable. The wine pairings were sensational. The only detraction from our experience was the perceived need to go overboard with each course - e.g. utilizing obscure ingredients or the perception that adding caviar or black truffles makes the dish. We truly appreciate the opportunity to select dishes and individual foods that are outside of our "comfort zone" and are items we likely would not order normally; however, preparing something that is simple, but doing it exceptionally well, is also highly-enjoyable, perhaps more so.

Absolutely excellent meal. We go to Daniel's each year to celebrate my wife's birthday. In the many years we have dined at Daniel, we have never been disappointed. Wonderful tasting menu, great wine pairings and fantastic service. If you plan to visit NYC or have the opportunity to try Daniel's, it is one experience to nit miss.
