    Not what I expected from a restaurant in Clearwater. Felt more like like a high-end restaurant in LA or NY. The food was very well made and the ambiance was cozy and romantic. I would highly recommend for a date night.

    My husband and I had such a great dinner at Daily News. The food, the ambiance, and the exceptional service made it a win win! We will make this a tradition every time we come to Spring Training.

    We chose Daily News since they had some good write ups and had an open slot for our reservation. Glad we went- had the house salad, delicious creamy soup, rack of lamb and shrimp scampi. All were uniquely tasty, and as a whole dinner was a treat. Service was prompt, but slowed as the restaurant filled with other diners.

    From the moment were were greeted at the door until our departure all was exceptional. Our young server was knowledgeable of the menu and provided good service without hovering. The menu has a wide selection and our veal dishes were delicious. I would also say their portions are quite ample. I recommend this hidden jewel for any occasion as well as a simple dinner.

    Cozy and warm. Inviting and intimate. It feels like you’re out having dinner with close friends. The attention to detail, personalized care, and exquisite food makes Daily News a new favorite - we will definitely be back. Do yourself a favor and try a little of everything including a delightful bottle of wine and an incredible Croatian dessert. Everyone was so hospitable and passionate. ❤️❤️

    Indulge in a culinary adventure at this remarkable restaurant that seamlessly blends captivating decor and a cozy, intimate atmosphere as you are greeted by tge most beautiful Yugoslavian accent. Prepare to be amazed by the exceptional quality of dishes, delivered without a hint of pretentiousness but presentation of a Michelin five-star presentation. Let me start by applauding the outstanding service provided by Alan, our exceptional waiter. His recommendations were nothing short of extraordinary, elevating our dining experience to new heights. One dish that stole the show was the mouthwatering house made bread. The explosion of flavors and spices left us awe-inspired and craving for more. And oh, let's not forget the star of the show - the grouper egg roll! With each delectable bite, we were transported to the shores of Croatia, thanks to the exquisite tartar sauce that accompanied it. Prepare to be dazzled and tantalized by a culinary journey that promises to leave your taste buds dancing with joy. This restaurant truly embodies the perfect balance of unique decor, a cozy atmosphere, and unforgettable flavors.

    I am alergic to potatoes, asked if I could have pasta noodles instead of mashed potatoes. The answer was, "I can do that for you." When the bill came I was charged 5.00 which was the full price of the pasta side item. I questioned and Ken said that was correct. Based on his answer I did not expect a charge at all. An upcharge would have been more palletable. Yes, Ken was aware of my allergy. The tables for two that border the curved windows have no privacy. You can overhear the conversation from the table next to you on both sides. We asked to be moved as the one couple next to us was trying to have a private conversation, so we asked to be moved. We were accomodated with no problem. My friend had the salmon and loved it. I had the chicken Picatta and it was good. Will probably get the marsala next time.
