    My friend and I ordered raw clams and oysters, both were delicious. I had short ribs and she had the swordfish. Yum!

    The food and service was spectacular. The food tasted as good as it looked, amazing. The waitress was so polite and gave us fantastic service throughout the meal. The prices are very fair considering the portions of food we received. The only drawback if any is the restaurant looks more like a banquet hall than a beautiful restaurant.

    I was somewhat disappointed but would certainly try this restaurant again. The service was exceptional, we had a fantastic waiter. I wanted to try their grilled octopus and truffle chicken only to find out when we arrived they had a new menu. I viewed their menu hours before I made the reservation and was very disappointed. The noise level was most annoying. There are no partitions or rooms, just one wide open room. When we arrived at 530 the noise level was just at the brink by time we finished dinner it was very loud. I will add the owner did greet our table and the service was excellent but very disappointing they did not change their web page and the noise is very distracting. We actually could not wait to leave.

    First time at Daniella’s even though we’ve lived our lives in Syracuse. Had a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to get a great table outside and the weather was absolutely perfect for it. I do think that elevated our experience as the inside looks nice but has a bit of a “venue” vibe. Like an awards dinner or wedding reception. Our waitress was great and the food was very very good. I had filet and lobster tail and my wife had steak with shrimp and scallops on top. The drink menu was fun and very Syracuse *orange* centric. Our bill was about $200 for two with possibly the two priciest meal choices and a few drinks.

    We have gone to the original Daniella’s Steakhouse for years and love it. This was our first time at their Seafood and Pasta House. We ate outside and it was beautiful! Though the inside dining looked wonderful as well! The food was fantastic and the staff was awesome! We enjoyed hearing live music from Pinky which we have enjoyed in the past at the Steakhouse. Now we have a second Daniella’s to love!

    Tricky finding which gate to enter @ the NYS Fairgrounds, but once you find it you will not be disappointed. Nicely decorated, the one man bank Pinky was delightful, not overcrowded nor noisy, classy, great service. Food was fresh, hot, nicely plated/presented (also plenty of menu selections and daily specials) and positively plentiful. Great atmosphere.

    Dining at Daniella’s Seafood and Pasta House was an enjoyable and amazing experience. The service was awesome, the food was delicious, and it was definitely family friendly for such an upscale environment. The entertainer, Pinky, was super social and was very attentive to our family and the small children dancing to his music. Overall, a beautiful experience.

    This was the fourth time we had been to Daniella’s S&P and we were not disappointed. We were greeted at the host station with a big smile and encountered friendly and helpful staff members during our meal. Hailey was our server and she did a nice job and always with a smile. We always enjoy when Charlie visits our table to say hello and chat. He is certainly a man who knows the restaurant business and he always thanks us for our patronage. We’ll be back soon to enjoy the excellent service, friendly staff and good food. Well done!

    The food was amazing and service was excellent. The large open dining area wasn’t what we expected but was well put together, tasteful and classy, and the live entertainment was talented, engaging and at a perfect volume, loud enough to hear but not so loud that it made it difficult to converse or hear our server. Excellent experience all around.

    My husband had the bone in pork chop with baked potato. The portions were huge and the meat was very tender. His meal was delicious. I had the lobster pasta and unfortunately the lobster was stringy and perhaps was cooked too long in a broth. It was OK to eat but definitely not the level of excellence I have come to expect from this place. We also had crab stuffed mushrooms and a peanut butter mousse dessert which were excellent. The servers were attentive and did a great job.
