    I booked a reservation for my fiance's birthday and it was both of our first time trying it out. My fiance ordered the ribeye and I ordered the filet mignon. I ordered a medium and it was AMAZING!!!! Our waiter Richard was fantastic and really engaged with us as customers making the experience that much better. We will definitely be returning customers.

George, our server, was very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable about all dishes on the menu. Our meal was timed perfectly and our steaks were cooked as requested. Our dinner was enjoyed by all. We will keep Daniel's on our top list of Seattle restaurants!

    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!

    We celebrated our anniversary with dinner on Sept. 9 at Daniel's, and they honored our request to have a window seat, which was wonderful. Our server was very warm and friendly. My husband got the Delmonico steak ($65) ordered medium and I got the ribeye ($53) medium rare. Unfortunately, the Delmonico was served almost rare and the ribeye medium. The side dish of sauteed mushrooms we ordered weren't hot, and my second glass of wine was not delivered to our table until the check came, with the waitress saying, "Oh sorry, that had been sitting up there for awhile!" (?!) We should have said something then, but I didn't want to ruin our anniversary evening with a scene. I gave feedback on the Daniel's website, but they never followed up.

    We had a reservation for 7:15pm and it took them about 15-20 minutes to be seated. We requested a table by the water, but were seated no where near it. The service we received was outstanding. When my steak came it was way under cooked so they had to take it back. My husbands was actually more on the over cooked side than what he stated in the way he wanted his steak cooked. We both ordered the 12 oz. Filet and when our steaks came to the table they looked more like their 8 oz. Filet, then the 12.oz. When my steak came back the second time it was actually tuff on the outside of the steak and dark looking around the edges. It was a good steak, but I have had better for much less. Do I think our steaks were worth $65 each, no I do not.

    I have been to all three Daniel's Broiler restaurants, but I am very fond of the Lake Union location. The drinks here are first-class and it is easy for me to say that the steaks are wonderful. I go here several times a year and can't wait for an excuse to go back with friends or family. I do miss the old days when we could go into the side bar and smoke a fine cigar after dinner but now that we can't smoke cigars anywhere, I still like to go to the bar for an after-dinner drink. The special room for cigars is now a beautiful whiskey/scotch bar.

  • Overcooked steak
    Jonvilliers
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    I was surprised that Daniel's Broiler overcooked our steak (12 oz. filet). I ordered mine medium rare (as did my wife) and both were at least medium, possibly closer to medium well. No red at all, about half brown, half pink. That's not medium rare. I didn't send it back, since we had a party of 10 people and I didn't want to hold them up for their meal. But I was surprised that they would overcook what otherwise could have been an excellent steak.
