This is a multi course, price fixed, fine dining experience. The chef was Paris trained and the atmosphere is subdued and for those who take food seriously. Make reservations and plan to spend a couple hours at least. The menu is fixed - you get to choose between one or two items and it comes with 4-5 courses. Make sure... More

Chef Daniel created an exceptional meal for our anniversary! The meal, the ambiance and the service were flawless. Authentic, sublime French cooking at it's best. If you're a foodie, this is your place. No jeans or collarless shirts allowed. Dress up, old school as befits such a delightful experience. We can't wait to come back!

The room is a little small. It appeared as if they staggered the seating so the single waiter and kitchen staff could give close attention to all their guests. My guess is a later reservation would get the best service though there was nothing wrong with the earlier service. There were two soups so 2 onions and 2 veggie purees-they... More

Dinner at Chez Daniel is perfect for any occasion. Fine dining at a wonderful value. The cozy location provides two seatings per night with the chef and waiter to cater to your every need. The later seating is like dining on a cruise ship where the table is yours for the entire evening. The food and service are unparalleled! The... More

Plan on a minimum of two hours, a bottle of wine and lots of conversation. The service is excellent but at a very slow pace. One server [Alien], one chef [Daniel] for the 20+ seating. So set down, relax and enjoy. Truly for special occasions or an important business discussion. A chance to unwind. The price of entrees is $30... More

Chez Daniel is a hidden gem tucked away in an aging mini strip mall across the street from the Folsom Police Dept. It's a small 9 table restaurant which offers Prix Fixe meals that excel in taste and even more so in value. Reservations are a must - a single waiter is the lone server, so reservations are staggered to... More

This small restaurant is big in taste, service and atmosphere. The food is fresh, tastes fabulous, and portions are perfect size. The service is impeccable. Music, mood lighting and a strict dress code ad to the ambiance.

Had dinner at Chez Daniel last month with friends. The onion soup was amazing, the salad was great and perfectly dressed and the shrimp and scallop entrée was perfect. The service was, as always, impeccable. It was a wonderful evening!

Everything about this tiny little restaurant (8 tables) is beyond perfection. One waiter, Alain, one chef, Daniel. The food was to die for, each of the 4 courses. There were 7 items on the printed menu plus 3 specials. Making a decision was the nearly impossible. Alain is a fabulous waiter; attentive, articulate, charming, and more. We were delighted when...

World class cuisine in an intimate, unpretentious setting. Wonderful service. Menu is prix-fixe for a four course dinner. Meat is cooked according to your taste. Centrally located near Folsom Town Hall. Varied wine selection.
