Daniel's Broiler - Lake Union Ratings and Reviews
Meats and sides were wonderfully cooked - but slightly over salted. If they have apple or blackberry tart for dessert - order it. If they only have pear tarts - skip it. Service was excellent. I’m always ticked when I have to pay for parking after spending several hundred on dinner.
We had a double date here last weekend. Daniels never disappoints! We have compared the steaks at other high end steakhouses and we always go back to Daniels. The steaks are exceptional and melt in your mouth. My boyfriend doesn’t even like seafood but we always order the popcorn shrimp and calamari appetizers because they are amazing! We haven’t tried anything we don’t like and they always make us feel special. Daniels is the best!
We were a little disappointed because they brought one of our group the wrong lunch item. He said he would eat it and not send back, so the table was not waiting for him. That said, I thought they should have comped his sandwich or at least offered a free dessert. They made a mistake and did not seem very concerned about it. I also noticed that the quality of the lobster club salad has changed. Not as good as it used to be.
Wehad not been to Daniels in a while and it was excellent. We showed up for a 7PM reservation and were seated promptly. The server was good, gave us the run down of the menu and things to consider. I had the rib eye, cooked medium rare. Nice touch that the waiter has you cut into it and inspect to ensure it is cooked to your satisfaction. Overall great experience and look forward to another date!
We had an excellent experience. Great food. Great waiter! Great atmosphere. This is a very expensive restaurant and we could never do this on a regular (even semi-regular) basis. But we knew that going in. We were able to use gift cards we had purchased on a promotion. If you can afford it- I highly recommend Daniel’s Broiler!
I have been to this restaurant a lot and its has slipped from a year ago. One of the biggest challenges they have is adjusting to the minimum wage issues in Washington, and unlike a lot of restaurants, they have chosen to include a 20% service charge on the entire bill for all size parties. This includes wine and a huge oenophile, that spent and spends a fair bit on wine - at least $100+ per meal and usually a lot more, tipping 20% as mandatory rubs me the wrong way. When asked the Manager said there was a form on the table explaining this policy - At Friday's I guess you read the stuff on the table, at a first class steakhouse I think this cheapens them and assumes their clients faster food eaters. Also this should be clear on their wine list - which is fantastic. The manager made it clear I was in the wrong and the restaurant had to maintain its margins with the new minimum wage law - I hat minimum wages because it drives bad behavior for all. Its clear that is happening here. We also had an overcooked steak which we chose to keep just given the continuity of the meal. Bottom line - there are better places for grilled seafood and steak in Seattle that I's sure have more customer aligned onsite management and better service and at least as good if not better food. As for the wines - they will sell a lost less high end wine given this situation - my days of spending 500-700 for wine for a party of four are over at this restaurant - come to think of it - my days going to this restaurant are over all together. And in looking at the expense reports for myself and my employees that used the restaurant, that is about $10,000 that will spent elsewhere this year in Seattle. Thank goodness we have such a great evolving restaurant scene in Seattle for better options.
Exceptional customer service from the time you walk in all the way to the end. Very welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff and the food are excellent. Compliments to the Chef. Our experience here for our anniversary is way better than our experience at Ray’s Boathouse.
I've dined at Daniel's South Lake Union many times, and have never been disappointed until I went for brunch. The food was so-so, meaning the entire table, aside from 1 in the group, ordered some form of eggs benedict. The eggs were all overcooked. Clearly the chef(s) do not know how to poach an egg. The other issue we had, which was not a big deal, is that one dish had to go back as it was not as ordered. The server was apologetic and very nice - however we were not approached by the manager to check in - as normally would be the case - nor was that meal comped, which again, is pretty standard in restaurants. We certainly had no issue paying for the mistake, however they also have started adding a 20% gratuity to every check - and this was not the case due to part size. We were only 5 people. I am a good tipper, if the service and experience warrants a good tip - but when food needs to be sent back, they should not force a tip so high. 20% is for stellar service. That was not the case. I will continue to go to Daniels for dinner on occasion, but never will be back for brunch.
We have been to this location multiple times - this visit the food was average, but charged a premium price — $62 for filet mignon, $55 for prime rib etc.. they now charge a 20% gratuity automatically - unfortunately we did not receive service that would be expected for a 20% automatic gratuity - our server had an attitude and was quite condescending, my filet was okay but my husband’s prime rib was tough. Overall experience was med to low and mainly because of the service and the price for two with a drink, bottle of wine and 2 dinners was $285 - definitely not worth the price and even though we have come here for many visits - will not come back again
We went to this restaurant for a very important business meal with a high level VP. They started out by bringing him out the wrong soup, then there was a hair in my manager's food, and my Crab Louie came with dressing on it even though I asked for it on the side. I have been there before this and it was good but yesterday was quite embarrassing with these food malfunctions.
Visited Daniel's Broiler for brunch, frequent diner for dinner. The portion was small for the premium breakfast price, the service was fair, and the food took about 45 mins for eggs to come out of the kitchen. It was not busy at all. I would recommend passing on their brunch.
Great experience, will go back. The only nitpick was the value. $125 for Lobster(13oz) and Filet Mignon(8oz) wasn't quite worth it. It tasted fine and they did a great job of preparation but something closer to $75-80 would've been more realistic. Maybe I'm off target...
Service was poor. I asked what comes with the grilled salmon and server told me it comes with what's written on the menu. I ordered the grilled salmon with no onion even though onion was not listed as one of the ingredients in the sides. I get my food and before the server put it on my table, I smelled the onion. The server argued there's no no onion until I scooped out a few pieces and showed them to him.
When we were done, server brought us the bill without even asking if we wanted dessert!
All in all, we did not feel welcome and well attended.
Wait staff is excellent, food is definitely on the pricier side but comparable to most other high-end steak houses. Meals were well prepared and presented.
If you are considering Bellevue Daniels, take the extra few minutes and travel to S. Lake Union the service is way better.
