I've been wanting to eat at Daniel for ages, and finally made it there. It was well worth the wait. Yes, it is expensive. But my oh my was it ever worth it! The food was spectacular, the service impeccable and friendly. It was all beautiful as well as delicious. The bread alone was worth the trip. Everything we ate... More

Here you have an absolute classic gourmet restaurant, very french and very posh. And we were spellbound by the fantastic team working the front of the house. Make sure to have a drink in the bar before you are seated, the drinks were fantastic and the classic ambience of the bar is well worth a visit. The food was fantastic,... More

My husband and I have made it tradition to go to Daniel for our anniversary the last few years -- I believe this year was our 5th visit to one of NYC's finest restaurants.

My wife and I visited Daniel on our honeymoon and it was a real treat. The night was special from the moment we arrived. I had advised the restaurant that we were on honeymoon and they gave us our very own souvenir menu which was a lovely touch. We had the ten course tasting menu and it was divine! I... More

Been meaning to go here for a while and finally organized it. This really was an exceptional restaurant. It was also the most expensive bill I have ever paid and I still thought this was exceptional. I had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. I asked for one minor substitution and this was quickly met. I ended up paying... More

On our recent visit, the atmosphere was beautiful, the service was pampering, the wine steward skillfully led us through an extensive list. The only defect was the food - and this is, after all, a very highly rated restaurant. With the exception of the marvelous bread and the delicious baba au rum, the food was totally forgettable. We ordered a... More

After hearing about Daniel from friends and seeing it on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown show in Lyon, France we were determined to get a reservation and try out this palace of foodie pleasure. The coveted reservation was made a month ahead of time and confirmed for two at 5:45 on a Friday night and saliva flowed at the thoughts of... More

Did the 7 course tasting menu (I believe it was the Bellecour menu) Most of the courses were mediocre. The octopus salad was excellent but everything else was quite forgattable Maybe my expectations were too high

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
