With only a weekend in New York, we had only one chance for a date night meal. We chose Daniel. Being from the west coast (where things are much more casual) and only packing for a quick trip, my husband borrowed a jacket for the dinner service, which they were very gracious to do.
Our waiter was wonderful. He took the time to explain the service and the menu. We have had many meals at michelin rated restaurants, and are familiar with tasting menus, however the waiter was very professional to go over how service works. This is a nice touch if you have never done a tasting menu.
We decided to go ala carte and enjoy a three course meal. The food was great. Each course was clever, unique and very tasty. The oysters in sea water gelee was new and surprising. The beef course was cooked to perfection.
The room was beautiful. It had elements of organic design and elegance. If you can't make it for dinner, I'd certainly recommend stopping in for a drink at the bar.
