id go back4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dining experience.Fabulous dining experience. Very attentive service. Food was perfection with lots of extras- tastes, desserts. Highly recommend. We did lounge seating because we were going to the theatre and they were very accommodating.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful. IThe food was wonderful. I had the duo of beef and my boyfriend had the milkfed veal. It was wonderful. I've been to many high end restaurants and this was definitely worth the money. They are willing to rearrange and make substitions and if you don't like something i.e. my dessert wine you can switch it up to champagne - which I did. Will definitely be going back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I recently returnedMy wife and I recently returned to Daniel for our anniversary dinner and sat in the lounge area. It was wonderful. Pascal and Jessie gave us exceptional service and the food is always amazing.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYou get what you pay for:You get what you pay for: you pay handsomely, and get a dinner that you'll remember with pleasure and excitement for a very long time. The lounge area at Daniel is more casual than the formal dining room, but it's exceptionally comfortable, it's quiet and it has a casual chic that easily matches the studied elegance of the main room. The menu is the same, as are the prices. Note: if someone in your party has trouble with stairs, book this room, as it on the same level as the entrance; both the bar and the main dining room require going down a short flight (maybe 5 steps) of stairs.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is excellent but portionsFood is excellent but portions are small. Great service. We dined in your original locatiion in the mid 1990's and it was a memorable experience.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWear a jacket! Lounge is inaccurateI don't think it should be called lounge. That is very misleading because it is suit or maybe jacket minimum. When I called I asked the difference between the restaurant and lounge and they said the lounge is less formal. That was not true! It is not a lounge it is an added formal dining room. How embarrassing!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat in the lounge sinceWe sat in the lounge since I thought the menu would be a bit less expensive and perhaps smaller plates (we had been here before I thought I recalled such a menu). It turned out you could order a la carte from pretty much the regular $116 pre-fixe menu or order the pre-fixe (which ended up to be less expensive than a la carte). We didn't really go there wanting a 3-course meal and if we had, we would have chosen to eat in the main dining room. That was the notable disappointment. Most other fine restaurants in the city (Le Bernardin, for instance) have a lower priced, more "casual" lounge menu.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDaniel's is a fatastic etablishmentDaniel's is a fatastic etablishment. We were 5 in our group and were treated with such care and attention. Everyone was impressed by the service and food.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe asked for a romantic tableWe asked for a romantic table during reservation but was placed in a crowded row. the mistake was quickly remedied for a corner romantic table with great view.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMJust fiveService are super, food quality are expected not super impressive, still need to refine some area2/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!Have been to Daniel's before and of course he never fails to amaze me. His frog legs were prepared so tastefully and deboned to perfection. The Lamb Chops were exquiste and full of flavor. We sat in the Lounge Seating for the first time and I have to say I did like sitting on the top floor of the bar area. It was very romantic and quite. I felt very intimate with my spouse and would recommend sitting in the lounge seating again.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for special occasionsBrought my fiance for dessert and cocktails for her birthday with some friends. They really went out of their way to take care of us. Great mixologist and we found ourselves swapping plates because everyting was so good.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, food at DanielAs always, food at Daniel was outstanding. Beautifully presented and creatively thought through. The Lounge is a cozy, more casual option to the main dining room with the same menu. Only drawback is that the tables are so close that you are part of neighboring conversations. This is certainly the rule, rather than the exception in NYC, but not usually at such a wonderful, high end restaurant. Our experience was compounded when we were seated next to a larger party with other tables open.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but worth everyExpensive but worth every penny. Lounge seating hard on people with bad backs as banquet 'bench' too soft and not enough back pillows. That said I'd return and request more back pillows!1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and greatOutstanding food and great service, with a terrific vegetarian menu.1/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, Better Staff!The Lounge at Daniel remains my favorite high-end dining location in Manhattan. I'm a regular at Jean Georges, 11 Madison and the other top spots, but the lounge's intimate seating combined with service bordering on perfection result in a dining experience superior to the others. The service is unobtrusive, allowing you to focus on the people you are eating with, but the staff somehow always knows exactly when to appear with more bread, wine, or the next course. They focus on your overall experience rather than just the food.1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPurely outstanding. UnbelievablePurely outstanding. Unbelievable service which tends to your every need. This restaurant is an absolute must for anyone visiting New York.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDaniel never disappoints!Everything was perfect from the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left.
The service, food and ambience were top notched.
