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.

The food is extremely well prepared and all the preparations are visually artistic You are only offered pre fixe choices. The wine list is as big as the manhattan telephone directory. Try to find a wine by the glass. We opted for the 4 course pre fixe diner w wine pairing. For a tourist it is an event. Possibly worth doing W tip for 2 over $600 However what got me was the supercilious , pretentious Maitre De. It was obvious we were out of towners. We were given a peripheral table not part of the main dining area and close to the kitchen. If you decide to eat here take an umbrella because you will be soaked!!

Exceptional service and highly tasteful foods that looked like art. This was our first time there celebrating an achievement and it was a memorable experience. We were impressed and the wine tasting was a great idea, we were very surprised at how much knowledge everyone had about the ones we were drinking.
Overall I would recommend this place to my friends and family. Thank you for following through on my request to write congratulations doctor on my husbands dessert plate it was the perfect finish to a perfect evening.

This was such an amazing experience! Daniel Bouloud is my husband's favorite chef so I treated him to Daniel for his birthday. This restaurant did not disappoint. Everything from the food to the service and decor was top notch. It was a very warm and inviting place and they not only brought out dessert for his birthday but surprised us with 2 extra dessert plates wishing us congratulations when they saw I was pregnant and having our first child. AND they gifted us with a bib. They were amazing! Definitely worth it!

Amazingly the waiter served us from the right side, not the left as it should have been

The signature crayfish appetizer was drowned in heavy sauce. Dessert was ultra gooey. When I couldn't get anyone to share their red snapper for two, they prepared Dover sole for me, less than two inches long and 3/4 inch wide, the size of a small piece of chalk with tasteless tiny potatoes and some awful seaweed. Fish was tasteless as well

Foie gras was good as were the rolls and wine. Really awful dinner

It was absolute perfection. From we arrived at the host station and were seated, every detail was impeccable handled with warmth and professionalism.
Our 2 year old daughter was welcomed with a special gift wrapped package..a beautiful Daniel bib. She glowed as she put it on feeling extra special.
The wait staff, the ambiance, each course, the non-alcoholic specialty drink for my wife (little girl #2 is due September 6) & the immaculately presented dessert with the personal message welcoming them to the restaurant... all of it handled with the utmost care and affection.
Our evening was 2nd only to dinner at the Waldorf Astoria at Versailles Gardens in France. That’s exceptional company to be in.
We look forward to coming back soon.
Merci Beaucoup❤️👏

Overall was a nice experience, great food and ambiance. Staff was very friendly. The only shortcoming was the inconsistent service, took 10mins for anyone to come by our table and get us water. Got one refill the whole evening, and that was only after flagging a server down. Same situation with my tea, inattentive service.

The service is not service... it is hospitality. Very few places truly make the distinction, but DANIEL is one of them. Pressed duck is also at the height of excellence, while the rest of the food is quite different from what you're likely to find anywhere else (ranging from average to exceptional across 14 courses - according to my personal taste).

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Daniel's and could not have been more pleased with every aspect of the evening. We were seated in the booth in the back of the restaurant which may not be to everyone's liking but it was perfect for us as it gave us privacy and was quiet for my husband who is hard of hearing. The food we ordered was delicious but the little surprises they indulge you with add to the evening and the waistline. The salted butter from Brittany is dangerous and the warm Madeleines following dessert are sinful. They made the evening even more memorable by printing our our menu and wine selection. We have lived in Paris and been fortunate to experience French fine dining before but Daniel's certainly is at the top of the list.
