    Restaurant overlooks Lake Union; great view day or night. Food is fantastic; steaks are the best you will ever find anywhere, and they offer some original seafood entrees as well. Desserts are just plain great; we had an excellent Granny Smith apple tart. Wait staff are personable and they know their menu. Recommendations were always spot on. Large variety of wines and spirits, from pricey to inexpensive, traditional to adventurous. Atmosphere is surprisingly quiet for such a busy location. This is a great place for a romantic dinner or to take special friends and out-of-towners.

    We went to Daniel's Broiler to celebrate my husband's birthday. We got caught up in terrible traffic around Mercer and were about 30 minutes late for our reservation and they still our table waiting for us. Our waiter was attentive and the sommelier made excellent recommendations. The food was really delicious and perfectly prepared, and they provided my husband with a (complimentary) birthday dessert. We also ordered the seasonal pumpkin flan, which I highly recommend.

    My boyfriend and I were going out for a fancy evening. We had a gift card to this place from a friend and decided to try it out. It was fantastic. My boyfriend had the filet and Lobstertail and everything was cooked to perfection. I had the prime rib which was amazing. I always judge a steakhouse by their prime rib and this was one of the best I'd ever had. It was melt in your mouth tender and bursting with flavor. The horseradish sauce wasn't overpowering and the bernaise on the side was smooth and just enhanced the flavor of the meat. The sides were all fantastic as well.

    Ordered the filet mignon which was fantastic. The charring on the outside of the steak was great, and it was flavorful. The mashed potatoes that came with the steak was okay. The appetizers were pretty good, we ordered the calamari and dungeness crab legs. The fried calamari was not too greasy, and the legs were cut for us and tasted fresh. The coconut ice cream we got for dessert was fabulous. It was not a cheap place to eat, but we were expecting that. It was worth trying it out.

    Ok, what is it with Seattleites? This is a high end steak house, could you at least dress up just a little? Thank you, - Rant Off. Seriously, the food was good. Our waitperson, Sara M, was very knowledgeable and very personable. There were two of us. Started with the clam chowder, and it was tasty, but a little too thick. For the entrees, I had the 8 oz filet, my wife had the swordfish. The filet was tender, as you would expect and nice flavor. My wife liked the swordfish, but my tasing of it was while nice, needed a little something extra (not sure what, but a little something extra). Deesert, we both had the creme brulee. With 3 glasses of wine and a Bailey's and coffee at the end, the total was $180. It was a good evening.

    We go here every year for my husband's birthday and it never disappoints. We always start off with the deep fried artichoke hearts which are amazing. They are perfectly fried with a garlic aioli sauce. Then onto crisp salads and a great steak! The wine list is fabulous, service is impeccable and the ambiance is perfect.

    Daniels was excellent. We had never been to Daniel's before and were very happy with our choice. We both had steak which was cooked perfectly and so tender. seasoned superbly. The service was excellent, everyone that came in contact knew it was our Anniversary which was kind of the staff to make a note of. The only tiny thing that wasn't up to standard was the Caesar. It was soaking with the dressing and the dressing wasn't what I would say was up to the rest of the meal. But that's so tiny compared to everything else! At the end the server brought over a dessert with a candle, it was so thoughtful. Excellent meal, and date night! We will be bringing our out of town guests back for sure.

    We had a fabulous time at Daniels. We were early so we had drinks and starters in the bar before dinner. Our table in the dining room was at the window and we had a great view of Lake Union watching the sea planes, crew teams, kayakers and boats. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious, the steaks were so tender and flavorful. The service was perfect; the staff was attentive without being obstrusive or annoying. We are looking forward to going back.

    Service was excellent, wine selection is extensive, views of lake union are beautiful. Our table was ready soon after we arrived, and we enjoyed the bar/lounge area after dinner to watch the end of the Mariner's game. My wife ordered the 8 oz Filet Mignon and was pleased. I had the 12 oz New York - it was tough. Granted, the New York cut is not as tender a piece of steak as the Filet, though it was still tougher than what I expected. There are better in Seattle for less. Expect to pay a premium at Daniel's for dinner for two + a bottle of wine.

    You can certainly look around and spend more for a wonderful steak dinner, but honestly, it won't beat the experience of Daniel's Broiler which is by far my favorite steak house. There is a high level of consistency between the 3 different locations and they each have their individual perks. We were treated to THE BEST table in the restaurant when I requested a view table after I had made my reservation. What a treat!

    Value for the money you can get as good if not better meal at the keg. While nothing really stood out as bad nothing really stood out either. Steak wasn't the best I've ever had. Appetizer ahi tuna was difficult to eat presentation wise (large slices, too thick, difficult to share) I wouldn't tell people not to eat here, I just wouldn't tell them to go out of their way either. It was overall a good time and a decent meal just not for the cost and time.

    We dine at Daniels frequently and love the view, service and food. That said, this time the food was fair at best. My husband ordered prime rib medium rare but when the food came the prime rib was cold. The prime rib was replaced and was warm but well done. Another member of our party was served dry salmon. I have never had such experiences at Daniel's! My husbands dinner was comped....but we were crushed as this place has been gem for many special occasions!
