Chez Daniel is the only restaurant option in the Embassy Suites, Bloomington so it can get a little boring if your stay is any longer that 4-5 days. I stayed at this hotel for 10 days and was tired of Chez Daniel by the 4th night. The restaurant menu is the exact same as the room service menu, so you'll... More

This restaurant is touted as an innovative French Bistro. NOT SO!! It is grossly overpriced. Nobody speaks French. And, the food is far from what one would expect in Paris (or even Avion or Lyon for that matter!) The foie gras was far too sweet; the french onion soup was too bland and arrived cool. The escargots came in a... More

The Living Social menu at Chez Daniel was a 3 course chef's tasting menu with wine. Each course offered several enticing options. In addition to the delicious food, Chez Daniel has marvelous, quiet, romantic ambience with multiple intimate dining areas. Very elegant extras such as the palate cleansing raspberry sorbet and the chocolate dipped strawberries add to a beautiful dining... More

My husband and I had a great meal with our living social voucher. My beef medallions were a bit overcooked but everything else was exceptional. The atmosphere was great. It was very quiet and you could actually carry on a conversation. Not a place to go if you're in a hurry but we had a great, relaxing meal.

This is located inside the Embassy Suites and I was completely SHOCKED by the costs of the meal. The evening I was there was prime rib night. A 12 oz cut was $39.95. Reading reviews, I also tried the onion soup and I can say it was amazing as well. I was shocked that a cup of soup was $12.95.... More

I love the atmosphere and the service is excellent. I have dined here a number of times and have always had a wonderful meal. I highly recommend the onion soup, best anywhere. TB

Went here for New years eve with the wife and even though Im not a restaurant critic by far I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the place and the service. The food was very good and the Onion soup was the best Ive ever had even though I rarely order it. They take a lot of time between courses which... More

We ate here while staying at Embassy Suites Bloomington. The food was excellent. I had the sea bass and it came with a sauce that was to die for. They actually had fresh morrell mushrooms in the sauce and it was DECEMBER. I asked the waiter how they did that and he said they buy them from someone who grows... More

The potato was large and cooked perfectly but the prime rib was very... More

We stayed at Embassy Suites, because the food at Chez Daniel was so good. We ordered risotto, seafood pasta, and lobster tortellini - it was fantastic! That is, after we struggled finding anyone that would serve us. First lady who greeted my bf, was extremely rude, and said she wouldn't serve him because they were busy.....they had 1 big table...
