We went to Daniel's on the last night of our NYC stay - a friend had booked it and I didn't know what to expect. It was incredible. Every single dish the three of us ordered was so delicious and perfectly served - a delight for the tongue and the eye. Needless to stay, I have never experienced the level... More

This place is incredible. The service is perfect, the setting is very nice. The vegetarian food however lacks in variety, I felt that it could have been better, specially the entree. The rounds and rounds of dessert however makes up for it. You get the dessert you picked, in addition you will get a bag of madelines, additional chocolates, another... More

Had dinner at Daniel to celebrate the birthday of a colleague. We had a private room, about 40 people. Both food and service were first rate. I can only imagine what the total tab was, but I am sure it was pricey. We had a set menu with two choices for each course. I chose a braised artichoke salad, beef... More

Daniel is the ultimate dining experience--from the minute you pass through the revolving door until the minute you exit that same door--the personnel , the decor , the food and the service can be defined in one word " PERFECTION " We always look forward to dressing for the occasion and being greeted with the smiles and warmth of the...

Service impeccable, food absolutely amazing. We had the best dinner. When they found out we were on honeymoon they brought out extra dessert. They even offered to take a photograph for us even though they have a no photos policy. We had such a great time and always think back to that dinner. Cannot wait to visit again when we... More

Mr Boulud has obviously learnt from experience the essentials of good restaurant management, what with impeccable service, good PR by the staff, appropriate ambience and most importantly, good food. All at a price, of course. Found the food consistent with any 3-star restaurant but yet it was downgraded to 2-stars last year - wonder if opening too many outlets worldwide... More

We haven't visited Daniel for about 2 years. You know, New York has so many amazing restaurants, sometimes it is difficult to visit previous ones when there are so many new ones to try. However, one visit back to Daniel mad me regret that decision. It was outstanding. Definitely one of the best restaurants in New York City. The food... More
