We've been to Daniel last December, and there was absolutely nothing we could possibly complain about. The food was great, and so was the service, and the venue is really nice to see! I will definitely go back once in NYC!

After dining in NY for over 25 years This restaurant has become our first choice for dinner when we are in the city. The service is terrific and the atmosphere is nice and the people watching is a lot of fun. We always choose the 3 course prix fixe dinner, and we have never yet been disappointed. It's a bit...

This was our first visit to this renowned restaurant and we were giddy with excitement. We had to resort to the hotel concierge to secure reservations as I could not on my own. The service at this restaurant was impeccable. There was a certain precision and professionalism that I had not experienced at any other restaurant in the US. The... More

You will miss out if you don't visit this restaurant. I booked several months in advance, which is clearly mandatory if you want a table, and it was worth it in every way. The service, wine and food was faultless and nothing was too much trouble for the service team. I guess this is to be expected for the prices... More

Service and experience was 5*. Ambiance was as expected, high end and stuffy. Food, some hits some 'misses'. I put quotation marks on misses b/c even the misses at Daniel are good, just not great. Scallops, Swordfish excellent. Lamb bland. Dinner was $800 for two w wine. Worth it? The experience yes, the food, maybe. I'm a tough critic who... More

We were escorted through the unassuming yet elegant entrance to the most beautiful dining room. The food, service and wine recommendations were exceptional. This is human sophistication at its best. Frock up.
