The service was remarkable and outstanding. The hosts, the sommelier, and the servers went over and beyond to ensure our comfort. We had the four course tasting. The dessert course was amazing and kept getting better with each offering. However, the other three courses were very disappointing. the presentation was good but the taste was not what we expected from a restaurant of this caliber. It was not pleasing to our palate. Considering the price we pay at this restaurant, we were expecting a lot more in terms of taste.

Without a doubt one of the most outstanding meals of our lives. The finest combination of cuisine, service, and ambiance in the United States, if not the world. We were awed by the tasting dinner. Every staff member was superb. Special appreciation to our sommelier who recommended a wonderful wine that was also a good value. We’ll always remember this great evening at Restaurant Daniel.

The experience at Daniel was absolutely AMAZING. Everyone was very kind and thoughtful for our special day.

The Chef even sent us a customized "Congratulations" desert made with white chocolate and exotic fruits - we very much appreciated this attention. As well as the fresh and warm Madeleines, a delicious french Canelet and mini home-made chocolates using the finest chocolates from all over world. And Thank you again for the very pretty customized menus printed in grand elegance for us.

Daniel restaurant is a true highlight for people who want to experience something which is truly special and unique. We will come back soon. Merci infiniment.

Thank goodness there is still an exceptional dining experience around. I’d almost given up on dining out. Every place was the same uninspiring Upscale gastro pub trying to put a new spin on old recipes. So many places didn’t live up to the hype. Daniel is the definition of fine elegant dining. Every bite was creative and perfectly balanced- a foodie’s dream. Checks all the boxes of what I look for when seeking a new exciting experience.
1. He created things I would never imagine- familiar flavors blended into something new and sensational.
2. I could never create this in my house.
3. Creates a whole world and experience. For three hours I was removed from time and space and enjoyed one Devine culinary sensory sensation after another of taste smells and textures.
Hit every note perfectly like a symphony- the room decor, the lighting, the service, the timing, the wine, and of course the food.
If you are a true foodie ( in search of the next great bit- no matter where - fine dining to food cart) then you must experience Daniel and if you miss and are in search of a whole true fine dining experience put Daniel somewhere top of your list.

One of five must go spots in Manhattan for special occasions. Very pricey but you get what you pay for. Our Valentines Saturday lunch was superb with unmatched seating due to the earlier time. From the reception to departure the highly trained staff makes you welcome with knowledge and lack of pretense. All the four courses were elegant to behold and a symphony of flavors. The dessert course is a profusion of riches crafted under the supervision is the Pastry chef Ghaya Olivera and is equal to the best in the world. Drinks are special with a stellar and expensive list of curated wines. Very highly recommended for anyone’s bucket list. Bravo!

Dinner at Valentine’s Day.
The food was great as always. Price was double due to Valentine’s Day. Table was close to the entrance door. Rush service. Unfortunately, I felt it was a sloppy night.

Daniel is a special experience to be enjoyed as a couple or with friends. They made our evening special and paid attention to detail. The reason I gave the food a 4 vs. a 5 was because the courses over the 7 course tasting looked very similar. There was not a delight and surprise for any of the courses I have experienced at other Michelin 2 star restaurants. The colors on the plate were similar (sauces/placement) and cannot recall one that really stood out for me. My past experiences as 2 stars are notable and memorable courses. That said, the wine pairings were delicious and the overall experience for our table will be happily talked about for years to come.
