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.

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.

Outstanding service, the sign of a top restaurant. Fun ending- we were given a "menu" that listed all the dishes we ordered and a small boxed canele upon departure.

Perfect dining experience - Food, wine, service, pace. All perfect. If there were anything I would like to change it would be the sofa-type seating along the wall. Just not a fan as I prefer a regular chair. That being said, we had a wonderfully romantic corner seating, which was great. Loved it and will definitely be returning!!

The restaurant is gorgeous but a tiny bit tired. The real problem was the Waygu beef. The carrot and onion sides were cold and the beef overdone. Very disappointing and surprising. Other courses were delicious but this was a big mistake at these prices and level of dining.

Always enjoy any visit to Daniel. The attention to detail is outstanding. We also very much enjoyed the wines suggested to pair with our meal.

Daniel had been a restaurant I always wanted to try but never was able to make it happen until recently. When I first secured a 6:00 pm reservation I was slightly concerned as we were dining as a family with my wife and twin 12 year old daughters. My kids are very adventurous eaters and can hold their own in any restaurant, however, restaurants of Daniel's caliber are not always as enthusiastic when they see children. My concerns were soon put to rest as at every touch point in the restaurant our entire family was treated with grace and professionalism. We all ended up ordering the four course prix fixe menu. From the amuse bouche to the mini warm madeleines at the end and every course in between our experience was top notch. My wife and I also opted for the the wine pairings with each course only adding to our dining nirvana. When the last course was cleared and we were each handed a copy of the menu of the meal we just experienced. Thinking our night had come to a close we were pleasantly surprised one last time. The Assistant General Manager asked if we would like a tour of the kitchen and meet the Executive Chef. We were escorted through the dining room and had the opportunity to "look behind the curtain" and see first hand how a high end kitchen operates. Chef was gracious enough to put his expediting duties on hold and invite us all behind the line and have a group picture taken. As we left Daniel I could not help but think this could be one those dining experiences that may never happen again but I am so glad we able to share it as a family. Bravo Daniel!

Haven't dined at Daniel in a while, mainly because reservations can be difficult. In fact, I booked a table at the lounge since that's what was available. We had an amazing evening! The lounge is a lovely and a bit more intimate Daniel experience. We opted for the four course tasting menu, although ala carte is also possible in the lounge, and we did the wine pairing. Each course was more wonderful than the next and we added a cheese course before dessert. It was paired beautifully with a fortified French wine. All I can say is, we will be returning as soon as we can. Highly recommend!
