    Our group of four had an absolutely wonderful evening! It was for a special occasion (birthday) for my son in law. I can't recall when we've had a more special dining experience ----- from the hostess staff, bar staff, to our very special waitress, Mary. Our food was spectacular in taste and presentation. We will be back soon!

    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.

  • Mother's Day at Daniel's
    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.

    The steaks they were more like choice than prime. Needless to say we won't be back we'll stick with El Gaucho always good never an issue , And if your ever in Portland OR give the Ring Side a go BOTH it and El Gaucho know what a piece of Prime meat is suppose to be as well as top notch service. Also you'd think this joint wouldn't have a fly issue but it does. "Most unappetizing" I mean after all it's not a Denny's.

    Met with some friends from out of town for drinks in the lounge. Service, drinks and appetizers all superb. Moved to the dining room for meal. Again, service was excellent - waitstaff, sommelier, manager all very friendly and knowledgeable. Steak was truly excellent and we loved the wine pairing. Our only issue was the side order of brussel sprouts. Had to send them back because they were way undercooked. The second time around they had much better texture, but were really just edible, not very flavorful or enjoyable.

    Based on multiple recommendations, we dined at Daniel's Broiler on Lake Union during our last night in Seattle. We were in the neighborhood anyway for an early evening boat cruise and this looked the best among the local options. Pre-meal drink at bar was great. Service was impeccable. Very attentive and checked on the table at just the right times. Overall, food was very good. My wife ordered scallops and I had the filet Oscar. Both prepared perfectly. Maybe a Midwestern taste, but I prefer a little more char/salty taste to the stake, but it was still excellent. Lobster mash was a fun side dish, a little light on the lobster. We had gourmet, chocolate covered strawberries to end and they were scrumptious.

    We found the taste of the food excellent. The staff quite slow. The ambience exceptional along with the stunning view. All was for naught when my spouse exploded from both ends 3 hours after our meal of steak, and 2 sides of "fresh" oysters. Same experience we had at Chandler's Crab House. Losing our faith in Schwartz Bros. cuisine!

    Daniel's Lake Union restaurant is my favorite of their restaurants. The location as well as the management are so special and offer me and my guests the kind of treatment one would expect at the very best of private clubs or old school 5 star restaurants in any major metro city. The food is wonderful, the drinks generous and the staff from the Valet to Manager are the best in town.

    The service and staff were excellent. The view was gorgeous. The food was good, but it is WAY, WAY overpriced! We easily could have gone to another lesser name restaurant and had a meal that was just as good (if not better) for half the cost. I'm glad we went to dinner there at least once, but we won't be going again.

    Making reservations was a breeze. Daniel's took note of my request for a nonalcoholic toast. My brother, whom doesn't drink alcohol, was surprised and touched. Our server Darrin was attentive and knowledgable. His expertise in the menu added another level of enjoyment and confidence in ordering. The food was amazing! This was my second visit and it solidified Daniels as my favorite "steak house" in Seattle. My brother, he had never been, was impressed and will be bringing his fiancee' in for her birthday. Wonderful!

Everyone who came to our table was extremely professional yet warm enough to make you feel comfortable. and then there is the food.... amazing. we couldn't stop talking about our steak throughout the entire meal. I had the ribeye which was divine and my husband, who doesn't normally like steak, had the filet. we both were so impressed with the entire meal, it was simply unforgettable. George brought us a free dessert for my birthday, the drinks and wine were excellent and the whole experience was wonderful! we will definitely be coming back!

    I have to say I came in a little biased to Ruth's Chris steakhouse originally. But the steaks were amazingly tender and cooked to perfection with a nice rich mesquite flavor. The choice in side dishes all would pair well with my steak choice and made for a hard decision (poor waitress came to the table 4 times before I could decide). The service was impeccable and very friendly. I will most definitely be going again. Sorry Ruth's Chris
