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

We arrived at 6:30 for a 6:30 reservation. We were told to stand on the porch or in the 3X3 vestibule. I asked if they had a bar where we could wait and get a drink and she said no. We walked out on the porch and there was a couple also waiting who had a glass of wine. I... More

We have been away from western NY for several years and our first trip back to Daniels was Mother's Day. First up ordered two martinis which arrived barely cold, followed by oysters that were not cold; the freshest oysters, served oceanside are cold served on ice. Hamburg NY may want to take note. Rolls and salty butter were delicious! Rack... More

This is a very small restaurant in a former home. Tables are close together and it is reservation only. The food was excellent. I was there during restaurant week and took one of the specials offered. It was $40.50 and included Amuse Bouche (mini vegetables with a raspberry mouse -fabulous); appetizer, (escargot in a creamy, tomatoey garlic sauce,-delicious); entree (NY... More

Great place! Great venue, food, staff, & ambiance. Not cheap, but worth the money. Not for small children. Chef does a marvelous job with the Menu.
