Service was perfect, our Martinis perfect, splitting our Caesar salad at no extra charge nice, and steak was served medium rare, exactly as ordered. My only wish was that so much sauce had not been applied. Ordered the Daniels’s Delmonico, and the menu said topped with our signature steak butter. It was tasty, but this is a case where I think less would have been more. The meat flavor was so good, less sauce would have been a better choice for the chef to have made. My wife and I love going to Daniels’s and the South Lake Union location is our favorite, we often take out of town company and will continue to return. I just think every one of my Daniels’s reviews don’t need to be perfect.

As always, Daniels is a wonderful dining experience and this visit did not drop that bar. Covid precautions can vary from place to place and you never really know what youre going to get but Daniels did a wonderful job with all employees wearing both face masks and gloves. What truly stood out here tho was despite the precautions, our waitstaff did not let it deter from an excellent meal, banter, and care. This visit was for a calm dinner with my wife for my birthday and we are so glad we came here to celebrate. Thank you, Daniels!

When my husband and I want to have time out for one another, Daniels is one of our favorite spots for steaks.. our steaks are almost always cooked to the desired temperature-the food doesn’t disappoint and service is great. During this pandemic, this is one spot we feel very comfortable dining at. Face masks, gloves and social distancing are clearly a priority.

Great location, great food, great experience. Be aware tho, Daniels Broiler automatically tacked a 20% service charge to our bill that was not the servers tip! We asked our server if he got any of that and he said no, so we tipped him cash separately. I’m still confused as to what the service charge was all about and it will put me off going to DB again.

Patio dining was very nice. The 16 oz ribeye was delicious and cooked just right. The bacon wrapped scallops are wonderful, perfectly cooked and buttery. The crispy brussels were not as successful. Not crispy and too sweet for me but the calabrian peppers were a great addition. The jumbo baked potato with the steak came with butter, sour cream and bacon in mini ramekins. Definately a nice place for a splurge/special occasion dinner.

The meat was great as usual and we had a wonderful evening. The waiter was absolutely wonderful. The mashed potatoes- meh, too fluffy for my taste. The side dish, brussel sprouts, was very good but a little undercooked and did not ‘knock my socks off’. What I really really did not like is the policy of automatically charging a 20% service charge which is not given directly to the server but retained by Schwarz Brothers, the owner. They do claim to pay their staff well. Still, the tip is part of an intimate relationship between the server and the customer and it should not be usurped by the management. I ended up leaving our waiter cash tip anyway. This policy may interfere with my choosing this restaurant again.

We love going to Daniels, the view is amazing the food is outstanding. I do have to say the price it a little over the top. Two dinners, two drinks each and we split desert and it was $400. Was a lobster tail "really worth" $125, not really. We love going there but maybe we'll knock it back to just drinks and apps next time. Not sure if prices went up due to Covid - we can get steak and lobster other places for a lot less. However, again, the view, wonderful, the staff, great.
