If I wanted fast food, I would have gone to McDonald’s which I never do. The mozzarella sticks look and tasted like they came the grocery freezer. Our main course chicken was obviously not cooked fresh for us. It appeared that the chicken was pre-cooked and sauce added after. We were rushed, the appetizers were brought out and then the main courses were brought out before we were done. The meal was expensive for what we received. I will not return and do not recommend.

We got there an hour prior to our reservation and they took us with no problem. The food was outstanding. I ordered the veal Daniela as my main and it was very tender. Delicious! The white sangria was also outrageous! The staff was very friendly and extremely attentive. Would definitely visit again.

not only did open table accept our reservation request for Daniela's we also received a confirmation. when we arrived at our destination - Daniela's was papered with a sign saying closed for renovations Will reopen mid February! Not sure if I should be disappointed with open table for accepting the reservation or Daniela's for not informing us they were closed

this restaurant was closed. I was pretty upset with Open Table for allowing me to book a restaurant that was closed. We then had no reservation and had to find a place as a walk in.

When I made the reservation, I added that it was my anniversary. Upon being seated, my husband and I were given Champagne. Nice! As soon as the server took our order and walked to place the order, our salads came to our table within two minutes. The salad was fresh. Soon after we finished our salads, our entrees we're brought to the table. The food was delicious and hot. Utensils were clean.

Ambiance was very good. Dim lighting and candles in jars on each table. If possible, ask for a seat on the right side, towards the back or upstairs of the restaurant because it was a cold day and every time the door opened, the wind came in. Otherwise, awesome dining experience!

Very disappointing. The food is just ok at best. The menu is not the same as the one online. Prices are much higher for ok food and mediocre service. For the level of food we got, you may as well go to Olive Garden in Times Square and save your money.

Pre-theatre dinner was right around the corner from the theatre. Food was yummy but a bit pricey but your in NYC. Downstairs more crowded...glad we sat upstairs it was a little more manageable. The only negative is I felt rushed but I think it’s because they do their best to get you fed and out the door for show call time. I would go to this restaurant again if I were in the theatre district.

Waiters hovered, and were not friendly. Rushed you out. Food was pricey and not delicious. If you're looking for a quick expensive bite before the theatre this place will do the trick.

Restaurant food is very good but the place is too small, much too noisy so conversation impossible, and tables are so close the waiters can hardly get by. I understand plans are underway to expand. That is mandatory.

Good place in the theater district. Typical Italian food. Nothing particularly original about the dish. I had pasta primavera. Boring white rolls were also served.
Service was fast and attentive. I ate there between 2 Harry Potter shows.

Very good food and good portion size, awesome location, service was the only issue, as the wait staff constantly bugged you like they wanted to rush you out of the restaurant. Ate a 3 course meal in 40 minutes. Overall an awesome place to go before a show or just while being in Times Square.

The service was terrible they rushed us in and rushed us out they were hovering over our table the whole time, basically trying to take our plate before we even finished I had to hold my fork in my hand So they didn’t take my plate away. I would never recommend this place there’s a gazillion places in the theater district don’t go to this one and I did also complain to the manager and he didn’t say anything

The only rrally good thing is that the food was delicious. The restaurant is small and we cramped. The service was barely adequate. However, I deducted two stars because the sodas were nearly $4 each with NO FREE REFILLS which they failed to disclose. $32 of our bill was for soda (4 people who each got one "refill"!) Free refills are common practice and not informing customers is disingenuous.

Disappointing! The Open Table reviews led me to expect a delicious dinner but my meal was decidedly only fair. We were staying in the Theatre District and wanted a tasty pre-Theatre meal. We ordered the price fixe meal but the third course was quite limited. Although presented with a dessert menu only a few of the options were actually available. When in NYC there are many excellent dining options but Daniela’s is not one of them. I wonder who posted the rave reviews of this restaurant. The disparity between the reviews and my actual experience was troubling.

Great restaurant, especially conducive for families. Lots of options, extremely friendly and efficient service. Food was phenomenal. Only complaint was the noise level - we sat downstairs and it was a bit cramped and loud but upstairs is beautiful and much quieter if you’re looking for that. Highly recommend.
