Just amazing. Best service I have ever experienced. Not at all snooty, very smart, polite, and fun staff. Food was outstanding and an experience in dining! Atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. Just an overall wonderful place.

The staff were very friendly and attentive- they made you feel as if it were your local restaurant. Food was amazing and wine list was huge. The lounge was quiet and very comfortable.

Absolutely great. A chance to put together your own abbreviated, somewhat more casual Daniel “tasting menu”, with the same attention to detail that you’d expect from the dining room.

There is a casual, sophisticated elegance in the Daniel lounge. The food is superb and fit for foodies in spite of all of the food sensitivities I have. The service was possibly the best that we have experienced at other 5 star restaurants in other major cities.

Excellent fine dining experience. Special thanks to the Sommeleier for the well chosen wine pairing. I would highly recommend lounge seating over the standard seating for parties of 2.

One of the most amazing places we have ever dined. Inpecable and unbeatable service. Beautifully presented food. And the many tastes delights the buds! If you are looking for some place special to celebrate something big, then put this at the top of your list!

Last night I fulfilled the dream I've been cherishing for over half my life, of having dinner at the celebrated restaurant Daniel of Daniel Boulud. I wish I could tell my 16-year old self that it was everything I'd dreamed it would be and more. My husband and I each ordered the 4-course vegetarian prix fixe, and we actually got to choose every one of our courses from a dazzling array of options. The flavors of everything that we had were exquisite, the ambiance (we were in the Lounge) was beyond lovely, but what was truly divine, that made the experience better than I could have hoped for? THE SERVICE. I had heard great things about the service, so I expected professionalism and attentiveness, but I was not prepared for how NICE and lovely the servers would be! Beyond the four courses that were the formal part of the menu, we were regaled with an array of delectable treats - amuse-bouches, breads, delicate sweets, all kinds of miniature (but rich!) delights, and all of the servers who attended to us were so warm, friendly, and devoted to making sure everything was perfect. When the head server asked if we'd enjoyed ourselves at the end of our meal, I gushed about how after years of anticipation, I was finally dining at Daniel with my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary, and then as we were finishing up they surprised us with an amazing anniversary gift! The entire evening was magical, and an experience I will never forget.
