Manager Michael was cordial and helpful. Saw him cleaning hand rails personally due to current virus situation. Unfortunately only 5 tables there at 7 pm, so i am glad we supported them, Good foods at high price point of course (It is Daniel's after all), but you can buy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot for $40, cheaper than at Costco.

The views are wonderful, the service was good, the food was good but not great. I think they have priced themselves out of the market for me. Steaks starting at $80 per? I don't think so. Only tree tables in use, others may think the same. Plus they add 20% and keep it themselves to pay help as they want.

Lovely location and a great place for "Sunday supper," as most of our table had the Prime rib. Attentive service and spectacular views across the lake. This is a family favorite for us, a more intimate experience than some other Daniel's locations. Would enjoy a few more offerings for cold non-alcoholic beverages suitable for a special occasion.

Danials Leschi has always been a go to spot for us. The location on Lake Washington is perfect and the food and service is very good. They also had a great happy hour menu. But over the years their prices have steadily increased. Went for dinner the other night and were shocked at the cost. Their prices are significantly higher than the best steakhouses in Seattle. We’ll go back for happy hour but skip the dinners.

Food was good however they were not able to substitute anything without paying the full price for both sides. I wanted veggies instead of mashed potatoes and they said I would have to pay for both. Also they couldn't substitute lobster for anything else in the salad. Disappointing to pay so much money and not get what you enjoy. I'm not a big fan of mashed potatoes or brown rice.

Pleasant place with a great view. Tasty food. My server felt a bit of something like aloof, detached, reserved, or having had a bad day the day before, although other staff were cheerful and willing to help. We had to ask for their signature cinnamon rolls supposedly included in the meal, while waiting for our orders to be prepared, which took a long time . other tables were provided promptly after diners were being seated. Can’t say the waiter was rude, but the vibe was unpleasant. With 20% service charge automatically included in the bill, the server still hinted me to leave a tip. I thought this was a high-class place, judging from the bill presented.

My Husband and I were celebrating valentines day and a successful January for both of us at work and couldn't get a reservation at Bellevue Daniels (our usual) so booked at Leschi. The service overall was pretty poor. From sitting down, it took about 15 minutes to get our server to come by with water and greet us (I had to ask a manager to call her over because she walked past us several times). Our appetizers did not come together, and they almost missed us--another server/expediter almost gave them to someone else, and I watched him to the same to two other tables, as well as with another one of our dishes. When our steaks came, my husbands was great but mine was overcooked (we both asked for medium rare, mine definitely came out medium). Loved the brussel sprout side though. They remade my steak and when I finally got it, it was sitting in the largest amount of butter I've ever seen on a steak. it was pooled on top and pooled beneath it on the plate. I eat my fair share of steak at restaurants including and similar to Daniel's, and I've never had a steak with that much butter on it. the steak's flavor only slightly came through due to the overwhelming butter flavor that overpowered it. When I asked about it the person who delivered it (bald gentleman) said that all steaks come with butter like that (contradicting, because both my first steak and my husband's steak did not come that way). Later he came back to give us a longer explanation of the steak not sitting for long enough so the butter "just looked like" it was more than usual. I appreciate that some of our meal was comped but honestly the entire experience made me never want to return to this location. The high standards of Daniel's Broiler service was not even close to being met at the Leschi Location.

What we ordered is not what we received. We asked for baked potatoes and my husband and I received mashed potatoes! My husband is lactose intolerant so the mashed potatoes got on his meat, the dish has to be recooked and he had to watch me eat while waiting for his meal to come. It was his birthday and I wanted it to be special! I felt so bad, however, the restaurant did comp both our entrees. Also the tables were so close together that we could hardly move with the waiters walking between us and the other patrons! Very poor setup.

We love dining at DB- Leschi but this time was definitely off. Service was so-so, and not as attentive. We ordered my daughters food from the children's menu and the server came back to us 3x to ask what we ordered and what drink she would like. It shouldn't be that difficult and if it is, then write it down! ... we come to DB pretty often and this time the food was definitely not as good as before. My hubby ordered the bone in rib eye and I ordered the reg rib eye. Steaks tasted good but the sides were terrible (which was odd). We ordered the mushrooms and the crab Mac and cheese. Mushrooms tasted like plastic and crab Mac and cheese tasted very runny in cheese and no crab in sight. Our bill came out around $300, which was expected but definitely not worth it and we probably won't be returning to DB -Leschi for a long time, since the food wasn't that good.

Was very nice that they were able to accommodate our party of eight, but the experience left a lot to be desired. Everything appeared to be in slow motion. Took about half an hour to get drinks and about an hour to receive our meals. The steaks were expensive and not cooked as ordered. Medium well was essentially rare and medium was raw. They wanted $40 just to cut a cake we brought in and nothing else special was done for a birthday. The bill had a 20% mandatory fee added regardless of the level of service.

Booked a reservation here for my boyfriends promotion. We ended up doing brunch instead of dinner and maybe that’s where we went wrong. We really didn’t need a reservation. Entire restaurant was empty. Food was very mediocre (potatoes weren’t even seasoned) and there were only a few options. Wasn’t worth the price. I do not recommend coming here for brunch-nothing like their dinner menu. Lady at the front was pleasant. No one else really had a smile on their face. Won’t be back.

We had a $100 gift certificate to kill. While I love a great steak, I’m not one to spend $80 for a piece of meat. Instead, we chose 6 fantastic appetizers and one drink a piece. Followed by a shared dessert. The view is great, service great, and food great. If money is no object, this place is awesome.

Sardine seating made private conversation impossible. Excellent Crab cakes, Mushrooms and Steak. Felt rushed to order and then when ready, waiter walked by and did not ask?! Even though menu was opened on table - then forgot Mushrooms. Did not know of automatic 20% tip added. Not a problem except with less-than-stellar service as expectations are then set high. Staff shift change brought more attentive waiter and the mushrooms. We were surprised with a 9:45pm last order call as dining room was closing. Seemed very early for a Fri. Both staff members were pleasant. I would dine here again but ask for a different table and arrive much earlier than 7:30pm.
