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.

It exceeded our expectations which were quite high after hearing about Daniel for many years. It was calm and beautiful, the food was simply gorgeous and the service was incredible. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who appreciates fantastic food and really wants to have a special night. You have the option of a four or seven course dinner- we chose the four course and had plenty to eat. Everything is so stunningly presented...it is impossible to describe. You just have to go!!

Clearly still on his game. Daniel has cured well with time creating a shrine to fine dining. As we followed him through his transitions in Manhattan his current spot is dinner theatre.
This present generation of fabulous chefs, cooks, waitstaff, and servers were professional, approachable, and kind.
The food was sublime.
Use of ingredients show efficiency and harmony with flavors popping with delight.
Hope Julie’s birthday was as nice as ours!
A tour of the kitchen made the night a dream!

 (México)·Dined on October 28, 2017

Food was excellent, i feel it could be overpriced but the amount of food of the tasting menu is huge, we thought plates were going to be small but by dessert we were full. The bottled water price its too much, they should ask or explain bottled water is priced and once you finish the first one they should have asked if we wanted a second one. Service is a little bit slow, we have to wait like 15 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation and they took a long time to take our order. I was not super delighted by the tastes considering is a 2 star michelin restaurant, maybe I could expect a little bit more for the price, but foof was good, flavors were good and new but nothing excceptional

We loved it, the experience was perfect from beginning to end. They seated us in a banquette as we requested in a perfect spot. The sommelier was focused on giving us the best pairing based on our food and tastes and not the most expensive bottle. We would definitely recommend Daniel and plan to come back. Every person that served us was so polite and nice, we enjoyed meeting everyone. Thank you for making our 10th anniversary one we will never forget.

The service is great! Staffs are friendly and attentive to any additional request if any. I gave a 4 star to the service just because the waiters served the wrong dish to our members twice.

Overall is a place to try in NYC. Will definitely go back again.

We are a family and my daughter has a special kind of diet. The restaurant forced us to eat a 4 course dinner and they were unable to change their meals into something my daughter would like ( she wanted to have Serrano plain with no gnocchi and Sauce ). The waiters laughed at us cause we chose one of The cheaper wines.... simply rude. Overall it's overpriced, and the bread is better than the whole meal. The dessert was not good too.
