What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.1

Our favorite place for fine dining in Manhattan. Daniel is an absolute classic. Save it for a special occasion and eat in the salon, where things are a bit more laid back.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

We informed the restaurant when we confirmed that we had a show at 8:00pm. We both had the tasting menu and I had the wine pairing. The food was mostly good - a couple courses were over salted. By the time 7:20 rolled around, our 5th of 7 courses comes out and I had to stop the dinner because they obviously lost track of time. We missed the last two courses and were charged full price. We made our show by 2 minutes. I would not recommend.

Best service in my life so far. My wife had a throat ache, and they organically offered her some hot water with honey and lemon, just by hearing her voice. Food was perfect and interesting. And they gave us a small gift for our anniversary. Magical.

A must when visiting New-York.
You can relax, speak quietly with your party, and enjoy a fantastic dinner as you can find in the best French restaurants. The staff is excellent, gives good advice if needed. Will come back, definitively!

A return to Daniel’s just validated why he is one of the best. The food is a pleasure to both eye and palate. The wine pairing of the younger wines are exceptional. The service is formidable without being too stuffy.

We booked this reservation two months in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary. Although the food was outstanding and the service was without fault, we were placed at a table in the far back of the restaurant, where we could not see much of the restaurant or the other tables in the restaurant. We felt that we were not giving the table that we should have, since we made this reservation two months in advance. So, not really feeling that we were a part of the rest of the restaurant diners, being back in a secluded corner, it diminished our expected experience that we should have had from a restaurant of this caliber.

Perfection is the best word for describing dining at Daniel's.
The creativity and innovation with ingredients results in outstanding dishes such as the Ceviche of Maine Scallops w/ Finger Lime Wasabi Vinaigrette, Cilantro Avocado Mousseline, White Sturgeon Caviar is but one example! It was sublime. Diners can actually have a conversation without raising voices and the ambiance is elegant.
The service is gracious by everyone I came in contact with but especially by Kattarina, my server, with an assist by Siraj. Everyone should eat here at least once.

Very disappointed in this meal. The food was very good, but it was not amazing and nothing left us saying "wow." In fact, we didn't like a single dessert they brought us (and they brought us many when we said we didn't like our original desserts). Unfortunately, Daniel failed to live up to expectations and did not match other top NYC restaurants. I also felt like it wasn't a good value. For example, we did the wine pairing along with the 4 course menu and the wine pours were tiny. For this amount of money, would much prefer other restaurants.

Absolutely extraordinary work of art. From the time we walked in until the moment left was such an amazing experience. We were visiting from out of state to celebrate our daughters 16th Birthday. She has a severe food allergy to shellfish and nuts. Her request for her birthday was a fancy dinner in NY. We came across Daniel. I was worried because I know she wanted this amazing food experience but not sure if the Chef would be able to work around her needs. The entire staff did! It was an unforgettable night that she hasn't stopped talking about. Thank you for such a wonderful evening and stunning courses of edible art:)

Beautiful setting; top notch service. Food was very good. We had 4 course tasting menu. Almost no accommodations for any alterations of preparation. Small but very tasty portions
Had the wine flight. Even with the upscale flight for $150 pp the wines are very cheap; the Bordeaux offering was from a $30 bottle non classified property
Bottle prices on the wine list are beyond absurd. 2000 Lynch Bages is $950 (paid $40 on release).
We had a lovely evening but doubt will do this again

A lovely meal. The dining room was full and quite buzzy on the Thursday night that we visited. We were surprised to see most tables turn over durring our meal. Food was as expected and well timed. We enjoyed the step up wine pairing with our meals, and found most choices to be well appointed. I think the one that fell short for me did so based on trying to accomdate the greatest number of pallets. Our evening was enjoyed and on par with meals we have had in Lyon, Paris, the Champagne region and Per Se here in New York.

Best restaurant, service, food ever! The waiters, sommelier, and everyone else was amazing to myself and my family. Had our 2 teenage daughters with us and it was definitely a highlight of our New York City trip! Will definitely be going back next time in town. We did the 7 course chef tasting menu and it was incredible. They even made virgin white cosmopolitans for our daughter. Beautiful and yummy evidently.

Amazing spacious dining room- made it feel private as nothing was cramped or too loud. Service was impeccable right down to the server assistants. The professionalism showed in every aspect. Food was incredible, I recommend the foie gras because they flambé it tableside! But nothing beats the service, I felt like a queen.
