One of the best meals we have ever had. Tasting menu was excellent plus lots of extra chocolates, madelines, petit fours etc at the end of the meal. Service was fantastic too.

The place is just amazing as almost every review points out. We knew going in that the place was traditional French cuisine in a beautiful, conservative place. Everything was on point. The entire staff were so courteous and well trained. The sommelier made some unexpected and memorable recommendations. Of all the truly fantastic dishes we enjoyed, the scallops stood out the most. They should change the name because it is unfair to future scallops I will eat. I will never be the same. I can't say enough good things about Daniel. Do yourself a favor and dine here at least once in your life.

We have eaten at all 1,2 and 3 Michelin Star restaurants in NYC and Daniel is certainly one of the best of the best. The ambience and decor of the restaurant is simply stunning and it is a treat to just sit in the restaurant and admire it for itself.
Service in the restaurant is faultless. On entering guests may check their coat with a staff member before moving to the reception desk where a very warm greating is provided. Another staff member will show you to your table and then 2 staff will assist in ensuring guests are properly seated. Your waiter for the evening will then assist with providing wonderful insight into the menu for the night. The detailed explanation of the menu will make any mouth water.
The food is exquixit. Al a Carte or fix prix are offered. We chose the fix prix and courses arrived seamlessly and each, explained by our head waiter, was a work of art and a taste sensation.
We chose to accompany each course with a recommended glass of wine (2 levels are offered and we chose the top level). The wine selected was a perfect foil to the food.
We have been to Daniel on each visit to NYC and recommend it to as a must for any foodie. It is not a cheap place but excellence is not cheap.

Daniel is an amazing restaurant.Excellent service,unbelievable interior decoration,myriads of staff pampering you,imaginative dishes.
Every single piece of ingredient in your dish is a work of art of its own.Can anyone fault this?
No,but can you actually eat there every day,supposing you could afford the 200+ Dollars per person tab?
My answer is no.Daniel is like poetry.It is a multilayer,complex work of art.Good for the experts.Personally I am inclined to say that I prefer simpler food,with amazing ingredients,perfectly cooked

As written in the title, my wife and I expected nothing but excellence and the restaurant delivered just that.The tasting menu was perfection and the service matched. Daniel was in the kitchen when we went and he was a very nice person. This is a destination restaurant.
