Daniel was probably one of the best culinary experiences I’ve ever had. They made my Fiancé’s birthday extra special. They included a personalized menu with birthday greetings which listed everything we ordered from the tasting menu. The staff was very friendly, attentive , and did a fabulous job!

Quite possibly the best restaurant i have ever eaten at. Ambiece, presentation, services all truly exceptional. Not cheap, but also not overly expensive for a restaurant of this quality.

Our party of four travelled to NYC for an overnight trip featuring dinner at Daniel as gift for brother-in-law's birthday celebration. Our party of four enjoyed the seven course tasting menu with the sommelier wine pairing, and also slipped in an additional cheese course. The food, wine and service was exceptional - a fantastic special night. The experience was very comfortably paced over four hours. Thank you for the special night and making the birthday gift such a memorable occasion.

Daniel went above and beyond all of our expectations. From the service director, Alvir, ensuring we had the most romantic and private table in the restaurant and arranging a kitchen tour, to the attentive service of our waiter and sommelier, we could not have asked for better service. The food was outstanding as expected and the kitchen sent amuse bouche, an extra starter and an additional dessert course to celebrate our special occasion. We were completely satisfied in the best way possible. A truly memorable meal at an outstanding restaurant. First class and highly recommend. Thank you, Daniel.

Service in the beginning was pretty disappointing I must say. Think this was mostly because the restaurant was packed and it seemed like there was no adequate coverage of waiters. For instance, we had to wait at least 10-15 minutes to complete our food order after we had indicated we made our choice.

Also, we had to wait for about 30 minutes to be seated, even though we had a reservation and I let the restaurant know it was for a special occasion and after visiting a couple of months earlier. This was truly disappointing!

The food however was absolutely fantastic and had just the right balance of flavors and subtleness. Truly a masterpiece! Same goes for the wine pairing, which definitely was worth every cent. Absolutely phenomenal choice and all very nicely matched to the courses!

In the end, service improved significantly though as the restaurant emptied and was more up to the standard that you would expect.

In a nutshell: food and Drinks wouldn’t deserve a third star in my view and also by comparison to other NY establishments, the service should be improved to justify this though (maybe by not overbooking the space so much?). Still a great experience though!

The food is only exceeded by the service of the wait staff. Never have I been treated better. The service was a genuine, kind effortless type and very classy. Also it was a real swank crowd with lots of well to do types of people. We enjoyed every moment.

It was wonderful in every way. The service was impeccable - and the food sublime. We had a wonderful table and the lovely service made it a very special evening. Everyone who works at Daniel is so gracious, and that is why it ranks as one of the very top restaurants in the city.

We did the 4 course meal. We loved our first course selections but every dish after that was less impressive and less impressive. My husband and I had a better culinary experiences with 1 or non Michelin star restaurants. However the service was fantastic.

Absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. Service was superb. Did wine pairings with our meal and the sommelier was wonderful; gave us great suggestions that were right on the mark with the food. Everything we had was delicious yet unique. No doubt we will be back.

We wanted to go somewhere special to celebrate our anniversary and Daniel did not disappoint. Everything was perfect from the moment we entered the restaurant. All of the staff are friendly and efficient. We had the tasting menu paired with wines. Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented. Amazing flavors and textures. The wines they chose were perfect with each dish. I definitely would recommend the tasting menu. We absolutely loved the whole experience!

The food was very disappointing. I had been to another Daniel (not the main one) and the food there was great. I had also been to a special corporate function at the main Daniel and it was great too. But this time the food totally disappointed.

We have been to Daniel 5-7 times and have never been disappointed. It IS the best restaurant experience NYC has to offer. Yes it’s a few $, well worth it. I’ve taken my family as well as business associates there and they all felt the same way. Can’t wait to go again!!!!
