My friends and I really enjoyed this restaurant. The dishes were inventive and tasty, a pleasure on the palate and to the eye. Service was very good and attentive. Our waiter was well-versed on the menu. The building was charming. We all really enjoyed our meals. Two things stand out, however: When our table of four asked for more rolls,... More

It is quite the small and intimate restaurant. Not much parking, but can park in Plaza across the street (currently under construction Sept 2016). They have a very good "special priced" menu on Tues-Thurs. Lobster entre is amazing! $50. They serve organic & farm to table. Small plates, Lunch & Dinners. All breads, desserts, pasta and sauces made in house!... More

This restaurant has been in Hamburg for quite a while but a year or so ago, it changed hands. Even so, it remains my favorite restaurant in the area.The food is wonderful and they even have a pastry chef Who creates great desserts. A meal at Daniels is a special experience for all lo era of really fine food.

This was by far my favorite restaurant of all time. It was expensive, but worth the price. I was devastated when I heard they were going to close and so happy when I heard they were reopening. However, I have been disappointed each time we have gone since then. It was nice to see the old servers back, but the... More

All food is of good quality but sides can be small and prices are the highest in the South towns. Unique but affordable to few on rare basis

I've loved coming here for over 20 years. This was our first time since new ownership. The food presentation was still excellent. Our waiter took time to personalize our visit with small talk and welcomed us back for wine pairing night. Still a great spot!

We view this as our go-to for special occasions. Very simple yet elegant interior, very knowledgable servers and very much a "grown-up" restaurant. Perfectly paced service. Servers will make you pretty much any drink, the rolls are to die for and you will never feel hurried in any way. If you're looking for the perfect place without loud music or... More
