    I was there to take a few of my business clients to dinner. WHAT A GREAT CHOICE. I was wanting to impress my client and with the help of the awesome staff they did just that. It was my first time there an I was IMPRESSED at how I was treated, great service! I requested a table by the window and it happened (thanks)Ryan the server was outstanding and the food, OMG best that I've had since I moved to Seattle a year ago. Thank you and I look forward till the next time I am able to impress. Todd Gockley

    My wife always has a 9 oz fillet mignon and this is the second time I had the (huge) prime rib. Both are superb, truly prime. The wine list is extensive with choices for every budget and taste. The staff is very efficient but not intrusive. Since it was our anniversary, our waiter brought us a complementary chocolate torte dessert -- nice touch. For a high-end steakhouse, this is our favorite restaurant when we are staying in Seattle (we live a couple of hours away). We have never been disappointed.

    While all the food was quite good, the service at Daniel's stood out. Our server proposed a number of options to let us try more items by ordering half-orders. Shared items came out split for us (right down to the bernaise sauce). And the sommalier took quite a bit of time to propose an exceptional wine for our dinner.

    Superb! We recommend it to everyone! We just had to wait for a bit for our 8:00 pm reservation but it was understandable, being a Friday night.We were able to walk to the boats, us trying to impress our son-in-law who was here for a meeting in Bellevue(he's a Marketing Director for Verizon) so he will move here with our daughter and granddaughter from So.Cal. The manager kept updating us of our availability, took time to come talk to us ( too bad I didn't get his name).Our waiter ,George, was very nice, explained all our orders; food and wine!( It turned out that he patronizes our store in Lower QA,Underdawg Records.)We also come here for your happy hours with our realtor friends from Windermere and Westernhomes,but not through Open Table.

    We had been to Daniel's many times before; the New York strip was far below average, tough and grisly. Onion in tomato & onion salad not sweet and mild, but strong and pungent. Should be taken off the menu until you can get the right produce. Looks like we'll be taking a break from Daniel's for awhile and perhaps explore some other places.

    My steak wasn't what I've come to expect from Daniel's, and the waitstaff graciously took it back and replaced it with a steak that was among the best I'd ever had. I'm not usually one to send food back, and I was pleasantly surprised with how much the staff went out of their way to ensure I was happy with the meal.

It was briefly mentioned and, yet, the staff listened and then, on their own, delivered a birthday dessert on the house. Our waiter, Kelly was excellent. Even a young maitre de came by to thank us for choosing Daniel's to celebrate. Awesome! The drinks, appetizers and entres were top notch. Can't wait to come back.

    To pay $15:00 more for a bone that is designed for a caveman, I think it was rather funny. That being said - the ribeye steak with out the bone was probably the best I have ever had.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/13/2008
    It was very good but I requested a booth with a view, which I know they have because I've sat in it before, and I made the reservations a week ahead of time at a non-busy time. They gave the booth to another group and put our group in a table that had a panel that blocked the window and the view for half the table, so I was pretty disappointed about that, especially considering we spent over $350 on dinner. The steak was very good but I've had better at El Gaucho and The Metropolitan Grill. Two in our party ordered the prime rib and the portion was overwhelmingly huge and hard to cut into. The appetizers were very good, especially the tuna. Our waitress was excellent, very personable, but I probably wouldn't go back.

    We felt rushed though the whole meal. The waiter was "pushy" like he was trying to get us out of there as quickly as possible so he could get on to the next tip from whom ever had the table next. The meal was good, but didn't justify the cost, even after the lengthy regaling of how good their prime cuts were. We've dined at better places with impeccable service, have never been rushed and at a more justfiable cost.
