Diner Reviews
  • "Daniel has great attention to detail in the presentation and flavors of the food and wine selections. It's an old world experience, the kind of place that makes you stick to the rules and keep your jacket on even if its 90 degrees out. It was very quiet by the time we got there for the 9pm sitting, I personally prefer a bit more energy and less formality but this was still a great experience overall. Come hungry, there are so many little extra courses we were bursting at the seems by the time we left!"

  • "Bouloud's Formal French dining cuisine and room are refined, lovely and delicious in every possible way. Price is "you get what you pay for" which is a special moment not a daily event. Whether you are known or new, waiters are friendly without being overbearing. Longevity is the result of a fine quality of cuisine and attention to detail from the flowers on the table to the last forkful of dessert. Both the food and wine lists are extensive and one's largest challenge would to to choose which delectable morsels one would wish to indulge in for this particular moment. A fellow foodie and I thoroughly enjoyed. My choice was the result of two previous meals, one lunch and one dinner, some years before, which were certainly rewarded!"

  • "Our waiters were extremely attentive without being overbearing and even engaged in a little banter with me, which is something I enjoy! We truly had a wonderful time. My significant other is vegetarian and they had a completely separate and developed vegetarian menu for him. We did the 3 course but really there are so many small surprises you feel like it is a 6 course meal. I was so happy with the choice we made to eat there while we were on vacation."

  • "My husband and I dined here during our baby moon to NYC. We were recommended this restaurant over all the other 3 star Michelin restaurants by friends and family in NYC. They did not lead us astray. We were welcomed with attentive and personable service from the moment we walked in. They definitely know how to make each patron feel special. We arrived with the intention of doing the tasting, but our waiter recommended the pre-fixe. We are so glad we chose the pre-fix! We had the freedom to order whatever we wanted and got an extra appetizer to share. I recommend this if you want to try extra food, but the normal 3-course is definitely more than enough food. The food was out of this world."

  • "Celebrated my birthday at Daniel, courtesy dear husband. I loved my appetizer more than the main course and vice versa for my husband. Highly recommend the CRISPY SANTA BARBARA SPOT PRAWNS and DUO OF BEEF. Judging by various reviews their BLACK SEA BASS is probably the best entree; to their credit our server did recommend it. Oh well, there's always next time."

  • "It's take me a while to write this review but my wife and I felt quite let by the restaurant in terms of food and service. None of the courses were standout. The waiter when serving our cheese course, didn't bother to talk us through the cheeses and just said 'here's a selection' when he'd spent around 5-10 mins with the table next to us explaining each one. They also opened another bottle of overpriced water without bothering to ask us. We left feeling disappointed given the amount if money we'd spent on the tasting course. We went to Le Bernardin later during our break and that was tremendous (for the same price)."

  • "Clearly one of New York's elite dining establishments. Classic French cuisine meets contemporary style. Food is amazing and the service even better. Great for special occasions or a fabulous night out."

  • "Everything, from the service, food and atmosphere was great. My wife asked for a Cosmo, on the rocks, they were able to form an ice ball from that mixture. Each dish was photo worthy, but more importantly the taste just danced on my tongue. I had the grilled halibut, which could be dry, but was perfectly cooked. I was very impressed with the whole experience."

  • "My wife and I love good food but our options and budget are usually limited. For our anniversary, we splurged on a really special dinner. I can't compare Daniel to any other Michelin Star restaurants because I've never been to one, but I can say that it met or exceeded our expectations in terms of food, service, and atmosphere. Though the price tag was substantial, we felt that it was completely worth it. We had a 6:00 reservation; we both ordered the tasting menu, so between the seven courses on the menu, the two extra amuse courses, and the two extra mini dessert bites, the dinner was our evening's activity and we loved every minute of it. The progression included seafood, beef, pasta, fruit, and chocolate. They were all outstanding."

  • "This was the second time I visited Daniel. First time i was with my daughter and I decided to go back again with my group of friends. It was definitely a great and a memorable experience everyone of us. My daughter loved the Duo beef and I have the sea bass. ..It was out of this world. I will go back again when I am in NYC."

  • "If any restaurant is perfect it is Daniel. From soup to nuts each course was creative and sublime. Service was professional, attentive, knowledgable and no detail was ignored. The dining area is elegant and luxurious."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We dined at Daniel this past Tuesday. We all had the 3 course pre-fixed. For the first course, the duck terrine, the hamachi and the mushroom salad were outstanding. We had the sea bass and the duo tasting of beef-Daniel's signature dishes, were superb in every way. With the amuse-bouche, the petits fours, it's more like a 6 course tasting menu for $125 per person! It's not inexpensive, but for a 3 star Michelin restaurant, it's almost a bargain! Our waiter even brought us a basket of madeleine cookies, still warm from the oven after the petits fours! We'll definitely visit this restaurant next time we're in NYC. Bravo, Monsieur Boulad!"

  • "My wife and I loved the place. The fois gras is awesome. She had the beef duo and I went for the sea bass, both excellent. Yummy cheese selection for dessert. The wine list is huge!"

  • "Daniel sets the bench mark on a truly fine dining experience. Everything from the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiles, very professional to the best table service and the highlight, the best fine and classic French food, great taste, amazing combination of Flavors and texture, lots of innovative ideas and lastly, beautiful presentation. It is an experience that sets a high standards in fine dining that will stay with me. I will return for more dining experience. Highly recommended. Value for money."

  • "This was a great experience with amazing food and wine. The service was also great and really professional. It was nice to have a table with a view over the entire restaurant. I would recommend this restaurant for a great food experience. If you want to have a drink at the bar before you get seated, I recommend the White Cosmopolitan. Great!"

  • "I picked this renowned NYC restaurant for an anniversary and could not have done better. The experience was as near to perfect as I can imagine, from exquisite good beautifully presented to service that was just exactly right in terms of solicitousness. I especially liked the leisurely pace. Unlike some top NYC eateries (I'm looking at you, Le Bernardin), Daniel conveyed no sense of urgency, no plain desire to move is along to make space for the next seating."

  • "This is my first trip to NYC and I got to know about Daniel online. I must say the staff there made us feel extremely comfortable and special. The food was unique and extraordinary. ..starting from the appetiser right down to the dessert. My daughter and I enjoyed it immensely. It definitely made our NYC trip even more memorable. Thank you Daniel restaurant for making our trip so special and memorable."

Even though I was with my mother anyone wanting a romantic ambience would not be disappointed. I let the staff know the visit to NYC was for my mother's birthday and they did a little special surprise for her. Highly recommended!"
