Phenomenal! From the moment you walked into the dinning room, to the house-made cannele in a gift box for patrons to enjoy in their own time. The service and food were impeccable. The attention to details was unsurpassed and it was evident in every single dish presented. You could tell everyone at DANIEL is passionate about their work. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and we couldn’t be any more delighted. Very reasonably priced for such an experience. We were still talking about it the next day! More

I had been to Erminia once or twice before, years ago, but had forgotten how lovely it was just in terms of decor; it is magical as soon as you step inside. This time I took two teenagers, a brother and a sister, to dinner there. They knew how good it was (and teenagers aren't always easy to please). I had what were possibly the best soft shell crabs that I had ever eaten. Everything, food and service and ambiance, was as good as could be desired. More

I have been here many times and the food is always very fresh and tasty and this time it was very good.I had the Livraki and it was sweet and tender. My friends enjoyed the salmon and chicken kabobs. However, the wait for the food was unusually long-40minutes. We asked the waiter repeatedly and then had to go to the manager to complain. Once the food came out- we were happy. The restaurant was very full and the kitchen was jammed. Overall, I would go back since the food is very good. More

The water cress salad, the fish and desert were all wonderful. Of course the wine list is extensive and the sommelier choose a great pairing. All in all a great experience and should not be missed by anyone in NYC. More

Irish | Upper East Side, Manhattan

I came here with a group of nine, including a toddler, for brunch. The restaurant was not at all busy when we came, so thankfully they were able to accommodate our obnoxious group! 1) They originally set up their back private room for us, which is nice. Since the restaurant was empty, I asked them if they could instead seat us in the main dining room — which they did without any complaints! 2) Half of our party was an HOUR LATE — but the servers and waitstaff did not complain. Instead, they were very attentive with water, coffee, and drinks to ensure we were comfortable. 3) We had a couple of order issues (one of our pickiest eaters had surprise ingredients show up on their plate) but they fixed it. Everyone else thought the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this as a fairly cheap place to brunch in the city—not to mention comfortable and no fuss. I definitely would like to come back with just my husband during football season! More

My 2nd time here, both for dinner. Lovely, small restaurant with good service. The food was consistently good both times. The gazpacho is excellent. Veal dishes are tasty with nice size portions. Since my dining partner & I only had wine on the first visit, I didn't realize that they do not serve mixed drinks ( only beer & wine). That was disappointing to two of my dining partners ( who wanted martinis). Since I prefer wine, it really didn't matter to me but others might want to know that. The chicken scarpriello was also well liked. Overall, an excellent restaurant which I would recommend & definitely return to. More

The waitress was very nice and upon asking her suggestion recommended one dish over another. It was a great meal and sitting outside was great. They did not rush us out at all and we were able to sit and catch up. The crostini appetizers are really good and could be a full meal paired with a glass of wine. The asparagus appetizer was great. My friend's tuna was very salty and my cacio e pepe pasta was delicious. Overall, a great hidden gem on the East Side-just be aware it is not an inexpensive dinner. More

The staff is attentive and thoughtful, the food creative but not crazy, and quickly arrived after our orders were placed. We enjoyed the Swedish pancakes, a tuna dish, avocado toast with a perfectly cooked sunny-side up egg, and the full breakfast with eggs, cornbread, and bacon. Coffee was tasty, drinks were delicious. We enjoyed our first visit, and if we're back in the neighborhood in the future, would likely return :-) More

We sampled two salads and the tiramisu. The salad with the shrimp, beans and asparagus was very appealing. The chicken salad, not so much. Dry strips of chicken tossed with romaine and other ingredients, visually unexciting. The pesto always tastes good but I was hoping for chunks of chicken. The tiramisu, however, was one of the best we had every tried. More

Marco and team did a phenomenal job as always. Our waiter was new but was very helpful and knew how to take care of us. The food was off the charts as always and the bartender sent us some limoncellos, curtesy of the bar. The meal wasn’t over priced and you’re far enough up the east side to not feel like you’re eating in TS. I highly recommend and will continue to frequent this spot. Amazing food. Wonderful service. Welcoming atmosphere and all at a fair price. They know how to take care of people. More

We ordered the filet rare but it came medium. The waiter did not charge us for after lunch coffee. This is a lovely, quiet dining room and some slip ups are easily forgiven. More

Phenomenal! From the moment you walked into the dinning room, to the house-made cannele in a gift box for patrons to enjoy in their own time. The service and food were impeccable. The attention to details was unsurpassed and it was evident in every single dish presented. You could tell everyone at DANIEL is passionate about their work. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and we couldn’t be any more delighted. Very reasonably priced for such an experience. We were still talking about it the next day! More

I had been to Erminia once or twice before, years ago, but had forgotten how lovely it was just in terms of decor; it is magical as soon as you step inside. This time I took two teenagers, a brother and a sister, to dinner there. They knew how good it was (and teenagers aren't always easy to please). I had what were possibly the best soft shell crabs that I had ever eaten. Everything, food and service and ambiance, was as good as could be desired. More

A wonderful, hidden gem. Our reservation was honored promptly. The service was impeccable from start to finish. We were not rushed at all. Time was taken between each course. Wonderful wine list. The decor was beautiful and the back pillows were an elegant touch. Well done, Sistina. More

Discover Upper East Side

Just a few years back, the stately neighborhood near Central Park was mostly stale, white-tablecloth spots with very little to attract the foodie set. Well, times have changed, and the area has a slew of fresh places to experience. Not-too-fancy French brasseries include favorites without the stuffiness, California-inspired fish tacos bring a golden glow to winter afternoons, and creative tavern fare undo the top button. But since this is the UES, there are still high-end sushi institutions. Uptown is still refined in its inimitable way, it’s now just a bit more accessible and vibrant, just like a foie gras mini taco.
