Not my favorite dinging experience at Daniel's. I usually go to Bellevue location. Tried Leschi for dinner. Would not recommend going here for dinner. They are not at the top of their game at this location....and its very basic. Took forever to get our meal because they could not cook my steak properly.....probably had to wait an hour for a restaurant that probably had 5 other parties dining. Wont be coming back to this location again.
We were seated quickly but our server didn't come by for 10 minutes...but once we got our orders in, things improved. Until the special dessert arrived- which tasted great- but there was some plastic wrapping that somehow got in the dessert. The server responded quickly and Kay the manager comped the drinks and side dish. I'd give it one more try because the food was good.
I was surprised that the high priced steaks was not grass-fed and the salmon dish was farmed salmon. The food tasted very good and was prepared well but I was expecting that the origins of the food would be better. We had gift cards from the Holidays but I would not be going back.
Food was horrible, and expensive. Waste of money, and waste of time.
All of us ordered from a wide selection of entrees, the appetizer , teriyaki beef was great, my scallops perfect. One of us ordered hamburger with fries , he said it was the best he ever had, it wasn’t on the dinner menu but they accommodate him. Lobster salad very good. The view outstanding , my favorite restaurant .
We had a fantastic dinner at Daniel's. It was our first time at the Leschi Daniel's and we loved it. The ambience was lovely and although we dined at night, the setting and view looked beautiful. The meals were delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server was very attentive and didn't miss a beat.
I was seated next to the exit door to the patio. There were towels laid down to prevent cold air from leaking thru. I also noticed cob webs around the door. Food was so so. My ribeye steak was done fine but the sauce on top was a little rich.
Recommend thorough cleaning in the dining area.
The overall experience was not aligned with price. The view is great but the Restaurant needs renovation. Food was good but my ribeye was pricey for what was delivered. Cream of spinach and the jumbo aspargus, delicious.
For my budget it was very expensive ($125), but for our 37th anniversary it was OK. 37 is a prime number, so I thought prime beef would fit the occasion. It was the best Fillet Mignon I've had in years, and cooked just right. Service was very cordial. And we got a complimentary dessert since it was a special occasion. I did not like being forced into valet parking. I'd rather park it myself. And that added $5 to the bill. The view over the marina was good, but it was dark. Would have enjoyed more light to look at the boats, but that is not the restaurant's fault. Overall, it was a good experience.
The bacon-wrapped scallops were excellent! The shrimp "scampi" came without sauce, and the waiter neglected to inform us of that, or to recommend one of those which we (later) realized were printed on the menu. The Ora King salmon was adequate, 'tho the fig sauce was very good.
Overall, not worth the extraordinary expense.
However, with the one exception noted above, our waiter was very good.
