    My family and I visited Christopher Daniel over the weekend to celebrate my mother's birthday. We had a party of 7 including a child and we were blown away by the brunch served. Between the choices, the quality and the bottomless drinks we were very impressed. We all agreed as we left the restaurant that we will be returning after such a wonderful experience and an excellent meal.

    Can't comment on the various categories for which I would recommend this restaurant, because we were only there for dinner. However, I liked the quiet ambiance on the evening we were there. The dishes ordered, all in the seafood line, were well prepared and tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. I'm sure we will be back.

    Very disappointing for Sunday brunch. Food did not appear fresh and they did not put on a good presentation. The price is reasonable, but the price is irrelevant if the food is not good.

    I made this reservation from the Baltimore County Resturant Week web site, so I expected to order from the Resturant week menu. When we got there, we were told that they didn't honor the Resturant week lunch menu on Sundays because they had brunch on Sundays. The brunch was fine, but I was looking forward to the wonderful dishes shown on the Resturant week menu. I also brought a friend from out of town and the only reason we were dining out was to sample the Resturant week menu. If the posted menu was not available on Sundays, it should not have let me make a reservation through the Resturant week site

    Our party of 4 was welcomed warmly at the door, and seated promptly on a Saturday night. The server was a delightful woman who chatted with us in a friendly way, but maintained professionalism at all times. Two of us chose Restaurant Week offerings, and two opted for the regular menu. The timing of the meal was perfect. Everything was delicious. My husband had the lemon, thyme infused chicken and is still talking about it because it was so moist and flavorful...best he's had in a while. Another diner, who was visiting from Florida, said the calves liver was outstanding. We will return, and not just for special occasions.

    We looked forward with anticipation the chance to dine at Christopher Daniel, but were still pleasantly surprised. I expected great food, but with great cost. Instead, I found the prices to be a bargain, from both a quality and quantity standpoint. And presentation was superb. The service was beyond attentive, being warm and personal also. I wish space permitted some dividers in the dining room, because it would have made for a more elegant and intimate experience, more befitting the level of food and service. But that does not discouraging me from returning.

    My Grandaughter will be 10 on Sunday but we started the celebration on Friday with lunch at Christopers Daniel's. We were greeted warmly by the hostesses and our waiter was awesome. Both acknowledge her birthday which made her feel very special. They have the best kids meals. Both grand kids ordered chicken tenders with broccoli delicious as before althought they really wanted fries (lol). My husband ordered the crabmeat omelet and he loved it. I had a cup of to ota basil soup and trio salad. This is the second time there and we love it. Of course at the end of the meal my granddaughter was brought flourless chocolate cake and the waiter brought her a small cup of fries that she wanted earlier plus ice cream. She enjoyed her b day start.

    CD appears to be hit or miss with the food quality recently, today was a miss. The coleslaw was way off and the tuna salad was not up to past renditions. The apple salad had a brownish hue.

Dinner was delicious as usual and the attention to Dad when bringing out his birthday cake was so nice, we'll be back for next special occasion for sure. Dinner was delicious so we look forward to making another reservation in the near future!

    This was our third time there. Although the food is consistently AMAZING, we (in our 20s) have always been the only people in the restaurant under 60. Its not a "hip" or lively scene by any means, but for a nice quiet dinner, or to bring visiting parents to, its a great choice!

    We had seven people, two at the last minute, which the restaurant accommodated on the spot. EVERYONE liked the food, even my food-compromised sister who can eat hardly anything but was able to mix and match whatever worked for her. Our server was terrific. When I made the reservation, they asked if it was a special occasion. It was, and they brought out two desserts for our two birthdays, chocolate, chocolate, wonderful. I've always like this restaurant, but on this occasion, it really was special. Did I mention that the food was just excellent?

    I was there to celebrate my 70th birthday with 2 close friends. We were seated where it was more 'intimate' a.k.a. private which was perfect. Brandon was our server and he was superb!! The food is always outstanding and it was so that night. We each had something different both for appetizers & entrée. I know that even when everything is excellent, the experience can rise or fall depending on the level of service. Again, Brandon was one of the best waiters I have ever seen. I wanted to try lobster, but the 1/2 lobster tail was only on the luncheon menu. All I did was mention that to Brandon; he checked with the kitchen and they did it!! Can't wait for my next visit. Thanks to all for making it so special for the 3 of us!

    Had a 1pm reservation for Sunday brunch (which is advertised from 10-2). When we went up to the buffet it was empty chaffing dishes and trays of pastries that were mostly depleted. What food was left was unappetizing looking and I expected the dishes to be replaced with more food but most of them never were. The food I did have was not even good and definitely not worth the money for the prix fixe price. I had actually heard great things about Christopher Daniel but I ended up being embarrassed to have taken people there for brunch and will not be going back.
