I went here with an out of town guest. We had to decide whether to go to the Metropolitan Opera that evening or out to dinner. We chose Daniel and weren't disappointed. The food is extraordinary and every dish we ordered was sublime. The service is excellent, the kind of service where you aren't even quite aware of its happening,... More

After reading many reviews about restaurants in NYC, my partner and I decided to give this restaurant a go while on a short break in the city. Unfortunately, our flight from London was 5h delayed, so by the time we had our reservation we were both very tired. We asked to have the reservation moved but were told they needed... More

Elegant and classic yet modern with perfect personalised service and excellent food. Our waitress was top notch and instead of sticking to a rigid set menu like many restaurants, tailored a tasting menu to each persons preferences which I thought was outstanding given the stature of both chef and establishment. Menu and product knowledge of all staff was of the... More

In 1992, my wife and I were most fortunate to fill a cancellation at Joel Robuchon's Jamin in Paris, which was impossible to get into back then. The dinner was $500 and worth every dime of it. More recently, our dinner with friends at NYC's Daniel in April 2014 is indeed the second best meal ever. From the time we... More

Front start to finish the dining experience was near faultless. All dishes were executed with millimeter precision, and flavour combinations that would rival the best. The in house version if the Manhattan was superb with silky smooth combinations and quite possibly the largest ice block I have seen. After chatting with our server he sent over a gentlemen that was... More

Artful presentation and delicious. Side lounge on right when you enter permits patrons in less formal attire to order from main menu.

As the M Jackson slogan goes. Ok its the most presigious and its not cheap but compared to european michelin star restaurants this one is reasonable. they look after you, the decor is subtle and calm, sumptious. I had the scallops with a foaming sauce, i can still taste it !!
