One of the best experiences all around for a great dinner, whether it be business, a date or just friends wanting to be catered too in an extravagant, courteous and professional way. The execution from being greeted and the front door, all the way to receiving the check (not for "budget" minded diners) was superb. Excellent Wine List, and there... More

We have been to quite a few michelin star restaurants around the world and this was great. The service was excellent, very attentive but also friendly and helpful. For a michelin star French restaurant the portion sizes were quite big, but it is America! It was our wedding anniversary and we were given a free third dessert with happy anniversary... More

I can only describe Daniel as an extraordinary dining experience. It lives up to its reputation as truly a first class restaurant. Our waiter listened attentively to us and we followed his suggestions for menu selections. Our meals were exceptional and the wine selections/pairing offered by the restaurant were outstanding. Yes, it is not a budget friendly place but you... More

Third time here, and I always try and visit when in NYC as my wife and myself love the place. Everything was as expected for a 3 star, our waiter, whose name I have forgotten unfortunately, was engaging, courteous and made us feel very welcome during our visit. Food wise I have never had a bad experience here, I opted... More

We went to Daniel for our second anniversary and it truly was an experience in addition to a meal. We both ordered the seven course with wine pairings and boy do they know how to do that well! First, with extra courses we ended up with about 10 - every course was perfectly timed, tasty, and so different! I was... More

Firstly, we booked online, 30 days ahead, for the Lounge option, as the dress code is more relaxed, and we did not want to take a jacket to NY in the summer. We chose the $125 menu option, which comes with numerous special treats from the chef. Also factor in the cost of drinks. The service was outstanding, as we... More

Daniel has become our go-to place for important occasions. Expensive but worth it. Very, very good food and exceptional service in an elegant setting. Outstanding wine list to boot.

We went for a really special anniversary. The entire staff was perfect from the moment you entered the beautiful restaurant to the moment you left. The wait staff was really helpful in explaining the menu and the wines. Dishes and cutlery were placed on the table (and removed when the course was finished) with synchronized artistic flourish in our case... More
