Diner Reviews
  • "Eight of us booked our reunion. The presentation are special. I've been there before and never had a bad meal"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Food was excellently prepared for the cost. The dishes were tasty particularly the oysters. The peach cobbler was also a hit."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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?"

  • "The meal was great and Mary our server was very good as well, but we miss the option of the tuna ap. as well as the entre."

  • "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."

  • "Took the family there for father's day. My daughter spilled chocolate milk everywhere and the wait staff was so helpful and immediately stepped in to assist me in cleaning the mess. The food was delicious and the best part was the unlimited mimosas."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Caesar salad was not very tasty! It was very bland with only 1 crouton. The cucumbers with the Ahi Tuna were not very fresh."

  • "Met a friend for lunch. Service was impeccable & spot on. Food was delicious. Will definitely return."

  • "Food was very good and the service was very friendly and attentive. The menu had some interesting items, but our group was mainly interested in the steak choices, which were tasty and priced well. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food was very good. The service was good. Loved the "formal" look. However, I am not a fan of carpet in restaurants. The carpet needs attention and does not match the other decor. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Our experience was wonderful. Our poor waitress had too many tables and she was stretched too thin. No faught of hers. She was very responsive to our needs, and the food was wonderful!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Dinner was fantastic! The service was impeccable. We wound up singing "Happy Birthday" Stevie Wonder style to my great friend and another table before we left. I would love to come here and dine again. The food was super fantastic. I guess next time we sing we should get a meal free. Thank you for the experience. Chef Barr"

  • "Every time we go to Christopher Daniel, I have to order something different. Everything I have had is amazing. The staff goes above and beyond and you can't go wrong!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This was our first time Dining at Christopher Daniel. Everything we ordered from the lamb chops to the tenderloin was perfect. The server couldn't have been more friendly and attentive, without being overly attentive. I am so glad we went here to celebrate a special occasion, it will be a memorable experience. "

  • "We were a group of five and had a wonderful experience at Christopher Daniel on Mother's Day. The food and service was outstanding! We will absolutely return."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This is the 3rd or 4th time I have dined at Christopher Daniel and, as usual, everything, especially the service, was outstanding. We were over 1/2 hour early for our reservation. At first we were seated at a table that was kind of tight due to the fact that there were two large groups at nearby tables. The hostess noticed this and asked if we would like to move to another table which would give us more space. Also, our wait person didn't pour our coffee until we sat down with our food. She didn't want our coffeee sitting on the table getting cold. I can't imagine getting such great service anywhere else."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Excellent, prompt service with courteous staff. Food was excellent at the brunch and replenished immediately. Mimosas and bloody Mary's were included! Fabulous oysters! Our party of 8 were all very pleased, especially on such a busy occasion."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "First of all, the restaurant served red wine in a white wine glass. Not what I'd expect from fine dining. The tuna tartare appetizer was amazing, and we expected the rest of the meal to measure up. The seafood unCobb salad was good, although I didn't expect it stacked like that - I thought it was pretty, but I would rather have had it in a bowl. No big deal, though. My husband's steak was okay, nothing outstanding, but he asked to sub brussels sprouts for his starch (he low-carbs) and thought they'd sub the brussels sprouts/bacon dish listed under sides. They brought him boiled brussels sprouts. We mentioned it to the waitress and she replaced it, but still - it wasn't something I thought would even be on the radar for fine dining."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I had ordered the soft shells sautéed. They arrived and after the 1st bite I sent them back. They were inedible. Mary ( our server) took them back, came back and said she had also tasted them and they were inedible. She too my order for a replacement and was simply great thru out the whole process and the meal."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Have had excellent meals here in the past but it had been at least two years. My wife and I each had the Caesar salad. The dressing was bland and just didn't have a Caesar taste. My wife's crab cake was very good with nice lumps of crab and not too much filler. My short ribs were overcooked and dry. The wine reduction sauce tasted from too much wine and too little beef taste. The accompanying mashed potatoes had too much horseradish for my taste but I don't blame the restaurant as I was forewarned. The desserts were good. All in all an average but not great meal. I've had worse locally (Da Mimmo's) and much better locally."

  • "Good food, excellent service; can't wait to return! "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "We were in a mood to just chat and catch up on the week. The food was just what we wanted and the service even more so. Just right to keep us attentive to the food but more attentive to each other. Waitress was there when we wanted her to be but not there otherwise. Perfect."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "From the very pleasant hostess's greeting to the final chocolate mint on leaving, the lunches I enjoyed at Christopher Daniel were wonderful. I recommend the asparagus and scallops with mashed potatoes, but the house burger and fries are far above average. Even the cole slaw is special. Always interesting specials, and a standard menu that begs to be sampled further. The waitpersons are very attentive but not overweening. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The dinner opened with the waiter suggesting a nice red wine only to be served in a small wine glass that was not appropriate for a red wine. The salads were average, the entrees were average and nothing special about anything with this meal. Waitress was friendly but average at best. Host was too busy texting on his cell phone when we left to even look up. For the price it's got a long way to go to catch up to other similar options available in the area."

  • "Wide variety of seafood and breakfast foods. Mimosas a bonus."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food ,our waiter James was great ,however when I made the reservation I mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday gave the person's name and description. When the waiter really encouraged us to order a dessert and gave the menu to me- I was sure he had gotten the message from the hostess. WRONG !!! The dessert came it was B Day girls choice, but no effort to recognize her as having a Birthday. I fully intended to pay for whatever she ordered and did. Very disappointing communication. "

  • "The cocktails are perfection. Service is wonderful. Food leaves a little something to desire. I ordered the salmon. It was perfectly cooked and served with a lobster risotto that was very tasty. It was supposed to come with asparagus, but for some reason it was served with haricots vert. Asparagus would have better suited the dish. My wife got the braised short ribs served with horseradish whipped potatoes. In theory, it sounds amazing but the potatoes had way too much horseradish, I could smell it from across the table. Even dipping the meat into the potatoes before taking a bite didn't help, horseradish took over the dish. "
