  • Fantastic Steakhouse

    This is a fantastic steakhouse, one of the best in Seattle. Great view of Lake Union, and terrific service. I'm a family of steak lovers, so this is an obvious choice, however, my sister who doesn't like steak still had several things to choose from and was very pleased with her meal. After dinner, we decided to head over to the bar. Love the live piano music and the ambiance of the bar. I definitely recommend this place, whether it's for a special occasion dinner or happy hour.

    Wow we were overly impressed with the food, wine, service, and view. Outdoor dining is a must but is given on a first-come, first-served basis. The view was great though, so I highly recommend waiting for an outside table. Our waitress (Nicole) was extremely knowledgable about the menu and very attentive to our needs. The food was delicious. Prepared to perfection. I highly recommend giving this place a try.

    Found the food and wine to be excellent but what really stood out was the frequent attention to our table to ensure our wine and food were served timely and just as we ordered. They read the special notes in the open table reservation and made special note to wish us a happy Anniversary and bring a special desert to commemorate it. Eric and Zack were fantastic. Excellent dining!!

    They know how to treat their guests and go out of their way to make your visit as delightful as possible. Make sure you are walked through the menu, there are a lot of great dishes to choose from and the seafood can be overlooked because of the delicious cuts of beef. Well worth a visit of two!

    Our reservation was for 6 pm. and when we ordered we were told that there was only one serving of Prime Rib remaining. I am not sure who is responsible for the kitchen but surely they can cook more than one prime rib per night. Even the waiters were complaining that they were not able to offer many other customers a full menu.

    I made reservations for dinner for my husband's birthday. It was truly wonderful. The view, the service and the food were all amazing! I made a note in the reservation that it was my husband's birthday and all the staff we encountered remembered to say happy birthday and he got a special dessert which was a very nice touch. Will definitely recommend this restaurant in the future!

    I have heard great things about Daniel's from friends and around town. I decided to take my wife there for our anniversary and I wasn't sorry at all. The food was excellent, the wait staff was literally at your beck and call (without it being weird and awkward). Overall I would recommend Daniel's to anyone who wants a great steak for any occasion.

    First time being at this establishment, and wow. It was easily best food I had ever eaten. While there menu looked spendy, me and my date split a steak ( 14oz steak 7 oz each) and uprated to lobster mashed potatoes. They presented us each with our own beautifully plated steak and potato, so while we were budgeted we had beautiful looking food without going threw the awkwardness of cutting the steak ourselves to split. .So just that made our dinner only 60 some odd dollars. We had dessert, and it was to die for. Will be coming back here year after year

    We took my brother to Daniel's Broiler after his graduation ceremony and it was perfect! We were very pleased with the close location to the UW, valet parking, quick seating, and of course fantastic food, wine and amazing service. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The staff shared my brother's accomplishment amongst each other, and congratulated him individually several times sincerely, and he was given a dessert on the house. I will return to Daniels and recommend it highly. Call early for reservations, as this is a popular place.

Delicious and very thoughtful! Service from there was excellent as always! They went above and beyond to make our dinner great! And it happened to be my daughters graduation dinner!

    The best service I have had in a long time from any restaurant. Steaks were good, but wish they had some type of steak salt/rub on them. They sell sauces to put on, but they always destroy the good flavor of the steak. The carrots were great. The place is great, but you pay for it. Steaks are all around $50 with a potato. Salad, sides, etc all extra. Our bill was $210 before tip for 2 steaks, 2 salads, side of carrots, 2 drinks for me, 2 glasses of wine for my wife, and coffee. The biggest surprise was the $18 per glass for my favorite, The McCallan scotch. I haven't paid that much since I had one in New York City. Usually most fine restaurants charge maybe $9 to $12. I guess you pay for good service and "Prime" steaks.

    Typically I enjoy dining at the Bellevue location (as I live on the Eastside) but my friend and I thought we would go to the Lake Union location to change it up. This was a early dinner for my b-day celebration with a close friend. Everything about our dining was great. Kristi our waitress was wonderful & recommended a great wine to try & Steve the manager was wonderful, engaging and charming. My b-day dessert was wonderful (can the chef come home with me and make those for me weekly?) lol. I even had a little to go container of their special made coffee whipped cream to take home (YUMMY - it tastes great on Chai Tea as well as coffee.) Great 4 hr dining experience. Thank you!

    It would be hard to fit my assessment of Daniels Broiler in this one review. I will do my best to summarize my experience. Upon arriving my party (my fiance and myself) were promptly seated. The server created us by name and gave his recommendations from his extensive knowledge. Through out the service the entire staff was both personalable and professional. The food came quickly as we had our entire meal served not one hour after arriving. However, we never dealt rushed. We felt plenty of time between the courses to relax before the next course. The food itself was delectable. It was an outstanding way fo end a special night. The only minor detial was the price. While expensive, it was worth it.

    Appropriate for a young crowd on expense account or conference attendees because of high noise level. Not so good for young hip, middle age or older small groups. Outside deck may be quieter. Beef entrees were good, but very expensive……in the range of Canlis and other "fine dining" restaurants. Again, good for folks on expense accounts. We would rather pay that sort of price for a truly fine meal and well made cocktail at a Tom Douglas, Ethan Stowell, or Renee Erickson restaurant. (While strong, my whiskey sour was not very good.) My prime rib was accompanied by a LOT of mashed potatoes, but they weren't great. Accustomed to spending lots eating out, but for a better experience. Probably won't go to Daniels again.

    Every single bite of food was pure heaven... even the crispy artichoke appetizer I got on a whim. I love a good rare steak and many restaurants overcook, but these were perfect. Best lobster-tail I've ever eaten, and they even send a sommelier when you order a bottle of wine - we chose the Hedges bottle that was specifically crafted for Daniel's - SO good. Best fine dining experience I've ever had in Seattle, and we go out A LOT.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    I took my 87 year old mother to Daniel's for Mother's Day. There were 6 of us, it was a beautiful day, and we had a table with a view. The food is very good and very expensive (think Canlis prices), but the service was certainly nowhere near the Canlis experience. What ruined this lunch for me is I was sitting right next to the door to the deck. People were going in and out constantly, and while the day was sunny, it was really quite cold. I should have complained and asked for a different table, but really they shouldn't have seated anyone there. The good news is my mom had a great time. I guess that's the most important thing.
