Everything was great
We are so thrilled to hear it. Thank you so much for the five stars! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.
Daniels Bellevue never disappoints. Made last minute reservations due to Covid and Emperor Inslee’s order to close great viable businesses. Steak cooked to perfection and service was exceptional as always! My only regret is the limited menu due to Covid and social distancing. A 10 star rating on a 5 star scale!!!
Hi there. Thank you very much for sharing your review and we're happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. We appreciate you stopping by and we hope to see you again in the near future. Have a great rest of your day!
A nice booth and great food. Service was very good, not many people in the restaurant. Underground parking and a nice elevator ride to the top.
We are so happy to hear it. Thank you for sharing! We truly appreciate the kind words. We look forward to serving you again soon.
What we could order was great as usual, but the menu lacked our 2 favorite sides. Creamed corn and lobster mac, both weren't being served apparently due to covid. Also, the menu was at LEAST 30% more than we usually pay. To be fair, we haven't been in months, but a usual bill for us is around 200-225, and this time it was 340 and we couldn't even get our favorite dishes. Disappointed.
Hello Ben, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear that your two favorite sides aren't on our limited menu. We hope to be able to go back to our normal menu soon. We appreciate your feedback about our prices as well and will be sure to let our team know. We hope you have a good rest of your week!
Servers are really great. They make sure we enjoy our date :)
Hi Young, thank you so much for this feedback. Reviews like this bring a smile to our face. We hope you can enjoy another dater at Daniel's Broiler again soon!
Everything pretty much as expected. They were a understaffed so service level was a little under expectations, especially considering they ding you for a 20% service fee upfront. However, our server was very personable and tried his hardest.
Thanks for the review, James. We appreciate your feedback about the service and the service fee. We'll be sure to check in with our team to make sure we're always providing the level of service that we want for our guests. Have a good day!
Service was great, we were seated immediately, food was wonderful. It was so nice to get out during COVID. Thank you!
Thanks for the five-star review, Christine. We're so happy to hear that you loved the food and enjoyed dining out during COVID-19. Have a great day!
Steak was delicious, shrimp over cooked and paid 16$ for only 2. Plus there was a 20% additional service charge I was not made aware of until bill came. Will not be going back.
Heather, thank you providing this honest feedback. We're so sorry to hear you are disappointed with your shrimp. 100% of this service charge is retained by Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. If you'd like to chat with us about this further, please send us your name, name on the reservation and the best way for us to contact you and we'll have management reach out. Thank you!
Nice place for date night and/or special occasion
Hi Robert, thanks for the review. We're glad you like to stop by for date night or any special occasion. Hopefully, we'll see you again soon!
Staff was friendly and professional. The steaks are expensive but it was the best steak I ever had in my life so it was worth it!
We are so thrilled to hear it, thanks for sharing. Our staff works hard to create a memorable dining experience! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon.
Food excellent, service excellent, value ok and really wished we we sat at a window table, they were available.
Hi Dayna, thank you so much for sharing this. Next time, please be sure to request a window table and our team will be more than happy to accomodate. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Daniel’s is a family favorite. The service was great. The food was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, desert and after dinner drinks.
This is lovely to hear, Zachary. Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know about your dining experience. We hope to have you join us again soon!
Celebrated my wife's birthday at Daniel's. The food was good, but I agree with the rest of the reviewers that the prices have skyrocketed (72 dollars for a ribeye steak is pretty extreme). The 20% service fee (where the server only get's a small percentage) makes it hard to tip the waitstaff unless you want to pay a 40% tip (20% for Schwartz bros and 20% for the wait staff) which doesn't make sense. I understand times are tough during Covid, but gouging your customers for every last penny does not make sense in the long term. In addition, there was no "card" on the table indicating the additional service fee as Schwartz bros have indicated in other reviews.
Hey there, thank you so much for reaching out with this feedback! We are sorry you were disappointed and we will absolutely be passing this feedback to our team. We would like to let you know that 100% of this service charge is retained by Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Thanks again!
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. We just happened to have reservations just before sunset, so the view was beautiful.
Thank you very much for your response. We really appreciate you sharing these additional details with us and we value your business. We'll be forwarding your information to our team and someone will be in touch.
Great meal and lovely view from the Eastside towards Seattle
Service and everyone that works there was fantastic. One of my favorite restaurants to go to every time I’m in the Northwest
We're so very delighted to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us! Thanks for letting us know and we'll definitely be looking forward to your next visit. Have a wonderful rest of your day!
Daniels now charges $70 for any piece of meat, and the 20% gratuity should have been said. The $72 Ribeye was chewy. I had to spit out several pieces. Prices are way way up and the single vodka drink was weaker than my 25+ years there. So its gone downhill. Still a warm place if money doesnt matter. But apparently it will for me. I've ate there almost weekly and now I live in LA and came back to find it overpriced, tough meat, and bad drink. SO I cannot recommend like I have in the past 25 years. Its changed. I know COVID is tough. But this review is without that acceptance. $250 for 2 steaks and a drink is too high to return. Sorry.
Hey Mark, we are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed! We absolutely never want you to feel this way at Daniel's Broiler and we apologize for letting you down. We will be passing this feedback to our team. We'd like to let you know regarding the surcharge that 100% of it is retained by Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Thanks!
Our server Ryan was excellent.
That's great to hear, SamM! Thanks a lot for letting us know. We appreciate your feedback and we hope you have wonderful day!
I was upset when I got home and could actually see the receipt in decent light, that the server didn't get the 20% tip instead of Schwartz Bros. That is a reason we will not return to your restaurant, including the horribly high prices.
Hello Lynn, we're sorry for any confusion about that 20% service fee. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is not expected and purely optional. If you'd like to chat with us about this further, please send us your full name, the name on your reservation, and the best way for us to contact you and we'll have management reach out.
The food was great, however the 20% ‘service fee’ was a total surprise with no warning. This ‘service fee’ was explained to us by the server when dropping off the check with it explicitly saying none of it goes to the server and all of it goes to ‘Swartz Brothers Restaurants”. Which then leaves us feeling guilty because the server didn’t get their usual tip. This should have been CLEARLY explained in the menu, and insert or by the server upon being seated. I didn’t order a $140 steak just to be surprised by a 20% service charge. Ridiculous, and felt very shady. I cannot recommend that people come here until this practice is changed to not sneak onto your guests without any warning.
Hi there, we appreciate this feedback. We're glad that you enjoyed the food but are sorry that the card explaining this was not at your table- there should be one at every table. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is purely optional. We'd be happy to discuss further. Please to send us your full name, the name on your reservation, and the best way for us to contact you. Thank you.
Prior to this last dining experience I had never had a bad meal. Unfortunately our server was distracted, almost annoyed at our being there. Ojr stakes were butterflied unnecessarily and over cooked. Even the children stated it was like Applebee's. We spent nearly 600.00 and honestly questioning if we will return.
Hello there, we're sorry to hear that this experience was disappointing. We certainly want our guests to feel like the top priority and to get a meal that lives up to the Daniel's Broiler standard. We'd like to chat with you further about this experience. Please send us your full name, the name on your reservation, and the best way for us to contact you.
Love Daniels but we are disappointed in the changing of their house bread to rolls. Honestly changes the experience. They spoiled us for so many years with amazing bread.
Thanks for the review, Lida. We appreciate the feedback about missing the house bread and we'll be sure to let our chef know. We hope you have a good rest of your day!
20% surcharge and wait staff saying none of that goes to them. Not OK
Hello Marty, we're sorry if the service fee was disappointing. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is not expected and purely optional. We'd be happy to discuss further. Feel free to send us your full name, the name on your reservation, and the best way for us to contact you and we'll reach out.
The food was outstanding. We made a reservation to celebrate our 15th anniversary. We arrived a little early and had a drink in the Bar. When we were seated, we were seated in a small area that looked as if it were normally used for storage with a view of the city over top of all of the outdoor furniture that was stacked on the deck just outside the window. When we were looking at the menu we noticed that there was a 20% surcharge that would be added to our bill. It was explained that the server would receive minimum wage and an additional 8% and we did not have to tip but were welcome to. When the bill came we realized that the 20% was added after tax, not sure why we would pay a service fee on taxes? I will most likely not go to another high end restaurant that charges the 20% fee. I worked in the restaurant industry for many years and in multiple cities and with one exception I was always paid minimum wage plus tips. I am shocked that such a high end restaurant would not pay their staff minimum wage and let them keep their tips minus what they give to the cooks, bussers and hostesses.
Thanks for the review, Mindy! We're so glad you loved the food. Thanks for celebrating your 15th anniversary with us. We appreciate your feedback about the service fee. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is not expected and purely optional.
Views were fantastic.. Beautiful sunset. The food was excellent, but pricey. Overall, I think it is too expensive for the value. Did not like the 20% gratuity automatically added. Gratuity should be based on service, not an automatic add on in addition to overpriced food . Would only recommend for the view and food but only those that have generous entertainment budgets..
Hello Becky, thanks for the review. We're glad you liked the views and the food. We do appreciate the feedback about our pricing and the service fee. Our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is not expected and purely optional. Have a good day!
We didn't realize Swartz Brothers added a 20% fee onto your bill that they keep and then we had to give the server and extra tip on top of that. Makes it a little less worth going here.
Hi Fran, thank you so much for the stars. We hear you and appreciate your feedback. A 20% service charge is included. 100% of this service charge is retained by Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. We strive to be an employer of choice and our servers are paid a base wage and a separate commission based on their sales. Additional gratuity is not expected and purely optional. Thanks for understanding and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon!
Food was okay but should have been much better with this price tag.
Thanks for the review. We're sorry things were a bit disappointing but we appreciate the feedback and will pass it along to our team. Hopefully, we can show you a better experience in the future.
Went for a birthday. Fantastic place - everything was perfect.
Hi there, we're so happy to hear it. Our staff works hard to create memorable dining experiences for our guests, and are glad to know we did so for you on your birthday.
Daniel's in Bellevue is our favorite steakhouse. Its servers always ensure one's steak is prepared as you like. Its calamari and popcorn shrimp are taste wonderful. And the whole staff is wonderfully warm and professional. Daniel's Bellevue is our 'go-to' place for birthdays and anniversary celebrations.
Hello Gary, thanks so much for the five-star review! We're thrilled that our team did an excellent job with your steak and that you enjoyed the rest of the food as well. Hopefully, we'll see you again soon. Have a great day!
Dinner was outstanding. The view was terrific and Maria was a superb server.
Thanks so much for the five-star review, Scott! We especially appreciate the shout out for Maria. Have a good rest of your day.
Had a birthday dinner and it was excellent. Had great service. Explained anything I was confused about and when they brought out the food they even offered to heat it more or fix it before I dug in, asking me to cut the steak to make sure it was perfect. The only downside really is the price (for me and my +1 it was about $310. We both got a meal, shared an app, I got 3 drinks, and a side(everything is al la carte)). But definitely a great experience.
Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your honest feedback with us. We sincerely appreciate your review and we're very delighted to hear that you had an excellent birthday dinner at our restaurant. This is the way it should always be! We hope you'll be back to join us and we hope you have a wonderful day!
It was good but I was excited for a better ambiance. I put in the notes on the reservation that it was a birthday yet we were seated right next to a very loud kitchen right where all of the staff was running in and out.
The table was next to the window but it’s not a great view (mostly construction) so the gesture fell a little flat. We moved to a booth but the kitchen was still pretty noisy.
The waitress was amazing and so was the food. For the price though, I’d expected a better environment.
I’ll definitely go back but not for a romantic occasion.
Hi there, Brad. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. While we're very glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and service you received, it's disappointing to know that you weren't able to fully enjoy the ambience. Thanks for letting us know and we'll definitely be looking forward to showing you a dining experience worthy of five stars in the future. Have a great day.
Always love a night out at Daniel's! Look forward to going back!
Thanks for joining us, Lori! We'll be looking forward to your next visit. Have a wonderful day!
We have been to Daniel’s Broiler many times and have always had great service. Food was excellent! I tried the American Waygu this time around and it was wonderful! Our server was really friendly and helpful!
We are just thrilled to hear it! Thank you so much for this kind note. Our staff works hard to ensure we provide memorable dining experiences, and are so happy to know we are doing so. Thanks again for sharing this.
Due to Covid their menu has changed. I miss the lava cake and butter cake they use to serve. Hopefully they’ll bring it back soon. Also, they automatically charge a 20% service charge now as a result of Covid and that service charge is also taxed. Didn’t see any plexi glass barriers and didn’t get a good look at how tables were spaced out. We were seated in a small room with a table of 2 and table of 4. Felt a little uncomfortable with that.
Hi there, thank you for understanding our menu changes due to COVID. We are taking all appropriate measures to ensure our guests feel safe during these trying times. We're sorry that you felt uncomfortable with where you were seated. In the future, please let someone on our staff know and we will be happy to move you to a spot you feel a bit more comfortable. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We hope to have you back again soon!
I ordered the NY steak and it was not up to the quality I expect to get when I go to
Daniels, especially for the price they charge.
Not a good experience
Hello there, we're sorry to hear that the steak was a bit disappointing on this visit. We appreciate you letting us know and will remind our team to be more careful with that in the future.
Fantastic place to celebrate good times!! We chose Daniel's Broiler for our anniversary dinner, and DB did not disappoint.
Thanks so much for the review, Phil! We're glad you had an excellent time. As for the creme brulee, we're currently on a limited menu during these new restrictions but hopefully, we'll be able to add it back to the menu soon.
Ordered the Danielle's Prime Rib Cut. Requested medium rare and it was mostly rare (the center was bright red and cool). The waitress did ask me to cut it open when it was served to verify it was cooked to my liking, but it was very dark and I could not see how red it was or how cool it was obviously. It was difficult to cut the center part even with the steak knife because it was basically raw. My girlfriend ordered the Halibut with Blackberry Beurre Blanc sauce and what she received looked more like the fish was breaded and there was no sauce to be seen. Consequently, it tended to be dry. Overall the food was not bad, but not really worth the prices. The mandatory %20 fee was also a bit of a turnoff. The ambiance is excellent and the waitress was extremely nice and very knowledgeable. Our only disappointment was with the quality of the food for the prices.
Hello Tom, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We appreciate you letting us know that the steak was a bit off the mark and that the service fee was disappointing. We'll be sure to pass that feedback on to our team to see what we can improve in the future. Have a good day!
B day dinner- he stated best steak he’s ever had. Great service, great food, clean, quite and great views
We're so glad to hear that he enjoyed the steak for his birthday dinner! Thanks for the five-star review.
My husband and I have been dining at Daniel's Broiler in Bellevue for most of our special dates (birthdays, anniversary, etc) and have always had a great experience. This time was the opposite! Our waitress failed to greet us or explain any of the specials which we overheard her doing for another guests. We did not feel welcome. We will definitely consider another restaurant in the future.
Hello Rakisha, we're so sorry to hear that our team didn't make you and your husband feel welcomed. That's certainly not what we want for any of our guests and will be sure to check in with our team about this issue. Thank you for letting us know.
We had a great time and the food was absolutely amazing!
We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time and loved the food. Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review.
