Daniel was good don't get me wrong but its not an experience i will still... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Daniel for our anniversary. We ordered the three course meal which is $125 and well worth it. The special foie gras appetizer was the best I have ever had. I had the black cod for main course and its was very good but my husband had the rabbit and it... More

I've been shying away from writing this review. How can I do this restaurant justice? From the moment you walk through the door, you are just completely aware that you are in one of the world's great restaurants. We got the sense that we were welcome, that they were delighted to have us as their guests, and that they wanted... More

It is very rare, well, actually, it has never happened that an experience in a restaurant would bring me to tears, happy tears. My husband and I experienced the 7 course tasting menu and paired it with wine. Extraordinary is an under statement. You can't even imagine what the experience it like unless you do it yourself. It is perfection... More

If you want to experience a super premium food art this is the place. Very nice courses. The service was exceptional good. The atmosphere in the restaurant is more business oriented than cozy love couples. Very nice (but expensive) wine list with sommeliers who knows a lot. The wine list will get 9 out of 10 (9/10)

"Daniel" turned out to be the least exciting part of the US holiday... The short story: had way finer dinners in places with no Michelin* and of course I had high expectations for one with a constellation of them! (And no, I'm not the kind who thinks my mom's steak with chips is the greatest food out there, although my... More

Beautiful everywhere. Outside on the treelined street, in the spacious entry hall, but mostly in the drop dead gorgeous main dining room. Love the mix of modern elements like the lighting and art, with the classic ceiling and pillars. Service exceeded expectations. Never rushed or stuffy. Always anticipating every need. Friendly and informative without being intrusive. Ordered the 'Mayfair' tasting... More
