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.

Overpriced for similar tasting courses. Everything tastes like split peas. The signature white cosmos was delicious. That was the highlight of our experience. Service was very good. Takeaway treat was a nice touch.

Superb. We live close by but it’s not always easy to get a reservation. We went early because we were leaving early the next morning for vacation. The food is beautiful and over the top delicious. The service was spectacular. The room is so elegant. We may have been in the “cheap seats” but I didn’t care. One of New York City’s treasures. And I can walk home!!

This was the finest dining experience that I have had to date. The service was perfect. Johnny was our waiter and attentive and helpful, while not being stuffy at all. The matre'd (not sure how to spell that) was amazing and helpful. Everyone genuinely seemed happy that we were there. The pairings of flavors and textures were amazing. I mentioned that I did not like onions and each dish was served without onions for me. It is pricey, but well worth the splurge! I mentioned that I had a grandbaby coming in the next couple of weeks and they gave me a darling bib to take home. We also got little cakes and a printout of the evening menu that noted my friend's birthday. I had scallops for my appetizer and they were perfect. Main course was sole that was prepared tableside. And the desserts were all amazing!
Thank you Daniel for a wonderful evening!

My husband and I have gone to Daniel for anniversaries and birthdays since we got married over 13 years ago. While we’ve tried many other Michelin Star restaurants in NYC through the years, Daniel remains our favorite - warm hospitality, impeccable service, and delicious cuisine with seasonal ingredients from around the world. They’ve also added nice touches like your menu with name imprinted to help remember the occasion. And the perfectly chilled water that’s refilled just when you want it.

Es la cuarta vez que vamos, pero lamentablemente en esta ocasión la experiencia no estuvo a la altura de nuestras expectativas. De entrada, a pesar de haber contado con la reservación desde hace más de un mes y medio, se nos hizo esperar más de media hora para pasar a la mesa.

En cuanto a la calidad-costo de los alimentos, la cuenta fue exageradamente cara (más de usd 1000.-) para los platillos que probamos, así que en adelante vamos a probar otras opciones en NY.

It was our first time there and it was great. We will definately return when we are back in New York. We had the four course dinner and there are great choices for each course. There are some nice touches through the meal especially at the end. We took the wine pairing which was dissppointing as I felt the pouring was lighter than I would have expected. We would have been much better sefved ording a bottle of red and white wine.
We were late arriving and they did everything to accomodate us.

Daniel is extraordinary for the quality of the food and creativity and craft for the cocktails. It is extraordinary for the service - from the first moment you arrive you feel attended to but not in a stuffy formal way but with an incredibly friendly, clearly well trained, highly intelligent and attractive staff - all of whom handle what they do with the utmost professionalism while still being warm, good human beings with pretty remarkable memories. I have eaten all over the world including Noma etc. when it was #1. But Daniel to me is literally the best restaurant with the best food and drinks and the best staff I have ever been to - and it's now 3 times in the last 2.5 years. Many more visits to come. Kudos to Elaine and Greg in particular.

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.
