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.

Charming welcome followed by knowledgeable and skilled service and overall warm hospitality.
Decor is muted elegance highlighted by tasteful art, floral displays, impeccable crystal and china, etc. Food is creative, idiosyncratic, often lush and savory without going to extremes. Portions are sized so that it is possible to complete the four-course menu and feel satisfied, while making the seven-course menu a perfectly reasonable choice for diners with a heartier appetite. Presentation of each dish delivers a visual delight that is photo-worthy. The sommelier was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and made a substantial contribution to our enjoyment. This restaurant will reward repeat visits.

One of the most over-rated restaurants in NYC. Almost everything was over-the-top. The Chef tried too hard to be creative and just plain missed the mark on too many of the combinations. Even though most of the courses were disappointing, the $151 for a fixe price dinner was to be expected at a restaurant with such a vaulted reputation . . . But $13 dollars for a cup of watered-down mediocre coffee was the final straw. There are just too many great restaurants in NYC at all price points to waste a meal at Restaurant Daniel.

We dined at Daniel on Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. Wow! This is a very elegant and special restaurant. We have eaten in the Lounge recently but it's been a while since we've eaten in the dining room. Everything during our lovely evening was perfect or nearly so. We particularly enjoyed the wine pairings with our tasting menu, which were expertly planned by the very knowledgeable sommelier. I highly recommend Daniel, especially for special occasions. It was a really lovely evening.

You hear the hype for a restaurant and then go to have a meal and get disappointed. Daniel is the exception to this rule completely living up to the expectations. We had the chef's seven course tasting menu, enjoying dishes like Abalone which I normally dislike. All the tastes were excellent! I think next time we will go with the normal prix fix menu to enjoy a larger taste of selected dishes as the tasting menu sometimes left you wanting a bit more. However at the end of the meal, we were completely satisfied.

Very good NYC restaurant possibly one of the best. Very good service, elegant ambiance not loud. Prix fix menu was tasty, well balanced. Amuse bouche were exceptionally tasty. Wine list although extremely rich is French oriented and generally expensive which is the only down side of this restaurant. Service was very good

Very high end service and selection, an orchestrated teamwork of service, this was a memory-building occasion for my friends. Each menu item was explained with great precision and care, and as small as the servings 'look', a four course meal does fill you up!

De entrada quien nos atendería hablaba en español, un lugar muy elegante pero dejándote sentir cómodo. El menú te lleva cada vez más alto y al final de la jornada el chef Daniel pasa a saludar y preguntar si todo estuvo excelente, como cuando recibes a alguien en tu casa. Espectacular velada, los niños también lo disfrutaron mucho!

We went to Daniel for my father's birthday and it was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was excellent. There were many extra items throughout the meal that really made an already wonderful meal even better. The presentation of each dish was so artistic. If you're really looking for a fun experience order the foie gras!

our group had a very good time, first time diners were really impressed. the service was brilliant and the food was very good. between the 6 of us there were a few dishes that our group didnt love, but that didnt detract from the evening at all. i am looking forward to going back, this place is really good for a special occasion.

We went to celebrate our 51st anniversary, and although we had not been to Daniel for a few years, we found it to be at the same standard of excellence. The room is lovely, the service is exceptional and the food beautifully presented and delicious. We had the three course tasting menu plus dessert. So many little extras were included that it seemed to be much more than three courses! The price was very fair-surprisingly so. We won’t wait as long to return.
