    Pros: excellent blue cheese burger--DH said it was the best he'd ever had. Was about 6" tall! Waitstaff were friendly and service was prompt. Sushi was good. Con: very noisy, even when we were in the smaller side room.

    Been here many times and always satisfied. Tried rib eye this time and should have stuck with usual fillet mig or strip. Meat could have been purchased at local pathmark. Garlic mashed not ip to par either. Average at best. No bread for table might have been a fluke tonight or might have a new chef or might be heading downhill. Might pick a new restaurant for restaurant week.

    Although we gave our waiter an ample tip, I was very disappointed with his attitude, I ordered a Gibson on the rocks, he came back with the answer your bar had no onions. How could a well established restaurant like yours not have cocktail onions. so I ordered a Cosmo on the rocks. It came back without the rocks. I sent it back for ice and when it returned it was thrown in a glass of ice spilling all over, therefore, the drink was weak. Also, the water we were served had no ice. Why didn't I say something, I was with friends I had not seen in a long time and did not want to make a big deal.

    We have dined at Danny's on numerous occasions and often recommend it to friends. This time, however, we were very disappointed. Perhaps because it was a Friday night, the noise level was disturbingly loud. There were a number of very loud tables, but then, inexplicably, the restaurant turned on incredibly loud music! Even after they lowered it, it was impossible to hear each other after that. The food this time was also disappointing: the pork chop was dry and tough and the sushi did not have its usual texture and flavor. Everything seemed very rushed. We might try Danny's again, but I would advise others to definitely avoid it on a Friday or Saturday night. Not worth the money for the unromantic atmosphere and mediocre food.

    Danny's has been in Red Bank seemingly forever, and its easy to see why. Danny is always on site and attentive to the customer base. Food is high quality for the most part-- better than many people give it credit for. Sushi menu added in recent years is more than decent. Wine list is serviceable and well-priced, although not exrtensive. Service is always attentive and professsional. Don't disregard this place just because its one of the Old Timers in town. Sometimes they trump Trendy.

    I never heard of a resturant not serving a burger until 9 pm. The price of a burger was $17.00 and main meal was 22.00. A 5.00 difference? We ordered alps and 2 were going to eat main and 1 wasn't very hungry and asked if they could order a burger and they said no! This was the manager and we were not happy . We paid for the alps and went somewhere else to eat dinner. Terrible service ! Good wasn't good either!

    I really wanted to love this place, but it was just okay. Sweet and spicy shrimp was tasty, but you only get four medium sized shrimp for what, $15? Tastes exactly like the Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill...except there you get an easily shareable mountain of popcorn sized shrimp. Eh. I got a filet mignon, which I know, is not the most flavorful cut of meat, but a little seasoning can go a long way. A good steak doesn't require steak sauce to make it taste like something. My boyfriend was much happier with his meal: he enjoyed a seafood chowder and the ribeye. I was most thankful to the management for not giving in to the horrendous woman next to me who would not stop complaining about their 'no burgers between 5-9 on weekends' policy!

    Maybe the kitchen was having an off-night because all the pieces seemed to be there but the preparation and presentation were not. Our order was pretty simple - two salads, two steaks, two sides. The salads were good but served warm in warm bowls (not the way greens should be presented). Our filet mignon (ordered medium-rare but served medium) was flavorful; our grass-fed strip (also ordered medium-rare) was served almost well-done. Our waiter made some excuse as to why it "appeared" more done than ordered but offered to replace it. The replacement steak was a grisly, flavorless piece of meat served nearly raw.

    We went with six people and we ordered salads for appetizers and the Grass-fed Ribeye, Lamb Chops, Pasta Bolognese and Filet Mignon. Everyone loved their food. We had a show to catch so didn't hang around for dessert. This restaurant is not on our normal Red Bank rotation but we will be returning soon.

    Our meal for the most part is fine. We sat inside. If you choose to sit outside you are actually basically in the street so be prepared for car exhaust as they park next to your table. My steak a porterhouse was less than stellar and very tuff. Would suggest stay away from that steak and stick to the sushi which was nice

    Had dinner here prior to a show. We enjoyed a meal here about a month ago so expected to do so again. The ribs were very good but the chicken franchese was not. It was a huge portion (2 big breasts) but it was very thick and the sauce was also thick & gloppy. The chicken was tough. Chicken franchese should be pounded thin with a delicate sauce. Ordered a salad with dressing on the side. Came with the dressing on the salad & way too much. Should have sent it back but hate to make a fuss especially when dining with others. Although the waitress was pleasant, she seemed untrained. Will think twice before returning.

    Although our reservation was honored, we were immediately brought to a table by the kitchen doors. There shouldn't be a table by the kitchen doors. Anyway, we then had to wait half an hour for another table and at that point there were so many tables available to choose from because the restaurant seemed to be deserted. EXCEPT for a large party of grownups and children who were extremely noisy. The service was very slow and it took forever to have our food delivered. Had they known that this would be an issue, because of the party, they should have offered us something to make up for it. In the end the food was very good but I don't think I would go back.

    We sat at our reserved time of 5:30 P.M. but overall service was so slow, we needed to skip dessert and coffee to make an 8:00 PM concert on time a few doors away. It almost appeared that Danny's was understaffed as service was inattentive, glasses went unfilled, and several times we needed to ask the hostess to send our server to the table. I looked forward to my medium rare, grass-fed rib eye. How disappointing when it was served beyond well done! The iced tea I ordered was served as a Sam Adams beer - the waitress thought I said 'Sam' instead of 'I'll have the same' after my wife ordered an iced tea. All-in-all, a disappointing meal, especially when we were so looking forward to Danny's.

    We had a nice dinner on a quiet Sunday night - except for the large groups with kids in the place - sending the noise level off the charts. Steak was very tasty and my husband enjoyed the full rack of ribs. Apps were good as well. What was missing? Well .... it was almost like no one cared what the plates looked like. No presentation or effort in the serving of the meal. When I'm paying $33 for a steak, please throw some parsley or something on the plate to make it look like you take more pride in what comes out of your kitchen. In the scheme of things, it may seem like a minor detail to many. But to me, it shows a lack of effort and that bothers me in an otherwise enjoyable meal.

    This was my third return to Danny's. The restaurant was empty which was unexpected for a Saterday night at eight. I ordered a rib eye( I always do) but it was over cooked, not medium rare.. I ate as much of my steak as I could( I was hungry). My garlic mashed potatoes were cold and too heavy. We also ordered creamed spinach, it was terrible.. Fresh spinach floating in watery milk- tasteless. These are dishes your kitchen staff must master at a steak place. We let our waitress know about the spinach and she was kind enough to remove the charge from our bill. I most likely will not return to Danny's.

    Return visit for me with a few girlfriends, one of whom struggles to find a decent neighborhood steakhouse. No longer - she's found it. Tried Danny's last month when went our mid-week for dinner with work mates. Loved the food (& owner Danny - attentive to his diners) then so came back with friends. Kitchen service a little slower on a Thur. (Indep. Day weekend) but still worth the wait. Appetizer & mains are great. Only negative would be on desserts / couple of us tried the Creme brûlée & flan - texture great but felt like they'd forgotten the vanilla essence! We never mentioned it so our fault for not speaking up but not a showstopper. Will be back.

    My husband and I celebrated his 50th birthday here Sunday night, and we were happy we did. We had the chateaubriand for two, and it was melt-in-your mouth delicious! Loved our salad (honey roasted pecans, pears, and gorgonzola over field greens and sherry vinaigrette), and the three sides we chose with our entree were perfect (roasted garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach, and especially the wild mushroom risotto - the best risotto we both have ever had, by far). We split a decadent piece of chocolate cake, and they were sweet to include a candle on top and "Happy Birthday" message in glaze on the plate, which included strawberries and cream. Decaf espresso and cappuccino made it complete, as did the cabernet we had with our meal.

    Went for our Anniversary dinner before a show at the theater next door. Food was a good value for the price. Service could have been better. Our waitress never gave us the specials for the night. We only knew there were specials when we heard them being offered to the next table. A waitress takes your order and servers bring the food. Our server did not know the tables. Tried to serve us a salad while we were still reading the menus and tried to bring our appetizers to another table. Finally, he must have brought our desert to another table since we never received it and were charged for it. They corrected our bill and even deducted the coffee. Very noisy throughout the restaurant especially outside noise since windows were open.

    I like a good quality steakhouse and wanted to try something in Red Bank. I thought Danny's would do it, but the noise level did not make it an enjoyable meal. Since it was a nice day the restaurant opened their bay windows to have an open-aired feel. the problem is they don't face the river or the ocean, just a busy street. Combine that with the patrons who could barely hear themselves think trying to talk to their tablemates and the resulting decibel level would make construction workers cringe. As for the food, the quality was very good, but I felt that they need to see dining as a full course affair. Their dessert list fell flat and didn't round out an enjoyable meal. I wouldn't write them off for that, but it dropped one star.

    From name, thought might be old/ stuffy but was not. Lamb excellently prepared. Colleagues' steaks came as ordered. And option of sushi/sashimi for those guests not wanting red meat was good to have on menu. Danny's grill even satisfied a NYC foodie so that of itself speaks volumes.

    This was our first time eating here and we loved it. We have some unique dietary restrictions and we were all able to order things that enabled us to completely enjoy the meal and not stress whether it was going to be prepared okay. The meat was cooked to perfection and the Dragon Roll was delicious. The additional sides were moderate in serving size, so you didn't feel overwhelmed by portions. The staff was courteous and very attentive, without being overbearing or giving a sense of hovering around the table. Will definitely dine there again!
