Had celebrated Easter for Brunch but was totally disappointed with the food. Eggs benedict was overcooked, grapes were sour, potatoe was undercooked and hollandaise sauce was sparce. Like Daniel's Broiler went for quantity instead of quality. What happened? At $60.00 a person, totally over priced for the food we got. Presentation of the strawberry was appealing but the fruit was not sweet, barely ripe.
Daniel's Broiler, you could have done better...maybe you should just stay with steak.

As a vegan, I appreciate that Daniel's has a pant based menu but I have to say the food on that menu is not good and the price you pay for sub par vegan food is high. The produce was not fresh.

While the food was good, it was not worth the $350 tab for 2 people. We had an appetizer, soup, salad and our main courses and a couple of glasses of overpriced wine. I have had better steaks at restaurants that don’t want your first born as payment. Everything was over priced. First and only time I will go there. I do have to say the service was excellent (automatic 20% tip is on your bill as well). Overall not worth the hype and cost

Everything was excellent. From the moment we entered and were seated at the lounge to await our table until we finished our dessert at our table with a beautiful view. Of course, for what it cost us ($310 including 4 drinks), the experience was what should be expected.
The steaks were excellent, the garlic mashed potatoes delicious, the wine delightful. For a once a year experience, I highly recommend it!

Daniel's Broiler is a great restaurant with a lovely ambience overlooking Lake Union. We were a party of five and we enjoyed a lovely window-facing table. Food and drinks were excellent, service was friendly - although it was very slow between the starter and main course and one dish was forgotten which was disappointing. Overall, a great restaurant and a lovely location.

Waiter talked very loud
Steaks were not done as ordered - took 2 of the 3 steaks them back and both came back charred
After waiting for 2 of us to get our re-done steaks while the other person ate really diminished the experience
The sides were getting cold as we waited for the steaks so we asked for them to be warmed - they did it but when they returned the sides to the table they still weren’t hot
We were well prepared to pay the high end prices but the food and dining experience was definitely not worth the $400 for 3 people (incl tax tip and only 3 drinks)
The table next to us had kids (5-10 yrs old). The kids acted up, the parent tried to control them but it became an altercation/ The parent gave in but the child repeatedly stamped their feet on the floor (we could feel the floor shake). The staff did not assist or intervene at that table nor did they acknowledge the disruption it was causing to us and the others around them

My wife and I were not able to fit comfortably in a booth and the staff were great at not only accommodating us but not shaming us. We were seated in a dining room with no other guests and felt like queens. Our server (John I believe) was lovely and really made the experience great.

My partner and I come here every year for his birthday dinner. Always incredibly delicious food and a great wine selection! He almost always gets a filet mignon, I explore the seafood options. If you can save room, dessert is well worth it too! The coconut fudge sundae is possibly the best sundae we've ever had. The ambiance is upscale yet comfortable and welcoming, and the views of Lake Union are lovely before the sun goes down.

The food and service was great, but there was lipstick on a glass we were served, and the arm of the chair in the bar was ripped. If you’re charging $15 for a drink, you should ensure the glass is clean, and when I order an $100 steak, I shouldn’t be sitting in a ripped chair.

Excellent!
Close proximity to I-5.
Valet parking.
We were sat immediately (reservation through open table).
The host/manager was authentic and down to earth and made us feel comfortable immediately.
We had a beautiful view of lake union and were sat next to the fireplace. My wife really liked that.
Our server was right kind of attentive; he didn’t hover, but was there to make sure we had what we wanted when we wanted it.
The food was perfect; king crab legs, New York steak, wedge salad. Cooked perfectly and hot upon arrival.
Huge drink list, I only looked seriously at the list of bourbons, and it was huge. I ordered mine neat and it was a generous pour, just the right amount for me. My Wife had a (I think) whiskey martini; her words, “that’s how I always wanted my old fashions to taste” lol. The bourbon soaked cherry was a great touch.
Dessert was great
Irish coffee was expertly balanced.

Every time I drive into Seattle for a nice dinner, I get anxious about feeling ripped off and wasting my time. I am seriously impressed with Daniels Broiler. No pretentious staff, no parking debacle, no undercooked/overcooked food, no soft pours, no bait and switch on the whiskey, no loud obnoxious parties. I got what I paid for here and am looking forward to going back.

Hopefully it was just an off night but the meal was terrible. The lettuce in the salad was old, the asparagus were woody, and the bone it rib eye was tough. $110 for a bad piece of meat. On a brighter note, the lobster mac and cheese was delicious.

Daniels food is solid, and the atmosphere is nice. I do, however notice the attire of some of the women there (very short and tight dresses) and the creepy old manager walking around giving them hugs. Took my daughter there, and was not something I’d like for her to see.
