Spanish
Casa Dani translates to Dani's House, derived from southern Spain's naming of small family restaurants as if they were the Chef's home, and that is precisely Chef Dani Garcia's intention, opening the doors to his house through avant-garde cuisine and a menu featuring items inspired by Spain's Mediterranean south. One of Spain's most internationally renowned chefs, having achieved 3 Michelin stars and the Bib Gourmand in 2015, Garcia's culinary style mixes surprising flavors, textures, and even temperatures without losing sight of his culinary roots.

    Fuimos a este restaurante porque conocemos los otros locales de Dani García en Madrid. Aunque la calidad no nos decepcionó lo que sí nos sorprendió es la pésima acústica de la sala que impedía mantener una conversación normal. Pedimos varios platos y todos nos encantaron a excepción del txangurro. El gazpacho de cerezas, la brioche de rabo de toro, el tuna belly, las croquetas, los chipirones en su tinta y la tarta de queso nos encantaron.

    I’ve been wanting to try this place for for a while since it is more of a tapas spot. Working with the hostess went smooth but once at the table the waitress was a bit inattentive. There are a lot of Spanish words and the guest I brought really didn’t understand the concept of the restaurant, when she came back I asked her to breakdown the menu for me. She suggested 6 tapas each which is a bit excessive and suggested that if we bought the paella we should also order 3 tapas as well. I KNEW that was way to much food so instead my guest and i split 1 tapa and the paella. However the paella was quite disappointing. They only included 1 octopus leg in the paella. The rest was black rice. For $78 you would think maybe it would be 2 legs, since rice is quite cheap for restaurants to make. So my expectations were a bit disappointed but I would be open to going again for some of the other tapas I just won’t be back for the $78 paella.

    Staff was very friendly and on time, food was delicious no complaints, love the Spanish wine list selections. Only complaint is the location is awful - it's in a nice mall basically, which it seems may hurt them. It was fairly dead inside...a Sun night, but still.... we were only ones in the bar. Dining room was busier when we arrived but that was more families wrapping up. If this restaurant were downtown or a more standalone venue, I suspect would do much better.

    From the moment of our greeting to the end of our evening, the team @ Casa Dani surpassed every standardized expectation and elevated our entire dining experience! Rob, our Server was beyond amazing; making us one of the best salads I’ve ever had table side, while also serving an entire section. The food is spectacular! The tuna belly w/ pan con tomate is a must have. It is an understatement to say that I look forward to my return.

    Good food but terrible service! From not communicating to his team about the olive allergy one of us had to not ever coming to the table to check how we were, to stuffing on a box of chocolates the table in front of us left with his coworkers. We actually had to call him to order dessert because he was too busy eating. We also ordered two espresso martinis and as soon as we got them I asked if it had any type of cream/milk and he said no. I asked him to please check because I drink this every time and I know how it looks, he said no. I still didn’t touch it and I asked to please have the bartender make it with just vodka, Kahlua and espresso and he said he would bring the manager because that’s all it had to which I responded “ok”. The manager never came and eventually he brought the right telling me it did have milk. This took 15 min of me arguing over a stupid espresso martini instead of him just asking “how would you like it made?” Please please train your staff!

    There is no questioning the quality of the food. It is superb. A feast for gourmets. The problem is the absolute lack of coordination between kitchen and servers, and the inexplicable forgetfulness of the staff. We were a party of four and ordered some tapas to share and one main dish each. Two of the ordered items never arrived, even after we reminded the staff of the fact. Then, the temperature of most of the main dishes, when they arrived at the table, was tepid or cold, a sign that they had been languishing on some counter while the staff tried to get organized. For a chef who achieved 3 stars in Michelin in his Spain restaurant, the whole show was a bit farcical. But, the food, the food... No question we will return, and soon. And as a consolation, the friendliness of the staff is truly remarkable, making up for the messy experience.

    Great food. But the service need to match the environment and the chief’s reputation. Very little service we got and waiters there are not familiar with the dishes. We have children and they gave the wrong size and quantity suggestions. I was awkward since I was treating my classmates didn’t meet for 20 years. Also the round table are too big for 6ppl serving food.

    Although the food is generally good, it is pretentious and overpriced, and not THAT good. Paella was especially disappointing-- for $68 it should not have tiny shrimp. Service was friendly but not very attentive. Fancy gin & tonics were great.

    Casa Dani is right across the street from where I live, and when the NYTimes reviewed it I was excited to give it a shot. In most ways, I was not disappointed: the ambience was chic, the service was top-notch, and it was quiet--a rarity. But the food, while probably flawless from a foodie point of view, was not really for me. I started with a pear G&T. With bitters and maybe a touch of anis, it was not what I expected and though I found it fussy at first, it grew on me. Artichoke hearts with Iberian ham came next--vaguely disappointing. The ham was too insignificant and the artichokes had an uninteresting texture. For me the patatas bravas were the best thing served; though gussied up in a tomato sauce and...something else, this dish was flavorful and satisfying. We finished with the pork and mushroom paella, which was, I'm sorry to say, underwhelming. Though cooked just so, the pork needed, dare I say it, salt. The mushrooms were bland and chewy. On the whole, this is subtle, elegant cuisine, and very fine; maybe I'm just too trashy for it.

    I live next door and was excited to give a 2nd try. (I came around opening when they were still getting settled.) This time we wanted to try their seafood paella called Marisco. I asked about the ingredient “salmorreta”. The waiter seemed annoyed I wasn’t ordering drinks and just said it’s a kind of pepper. He said it would take about 45 minutes. Those were the last words we heard from him. We started with calamar frito (slightly undercooked) and the paella came out in like 25 min, fine to be early, but it wasn’t what I ordered. Instead it was the arroz con costilla. My waiter, absent, required us to explain to the food runner. A woman manager came and said the waiter told her we ordered the pork. She would be happy to change but it would take at least 30 min. We didn’t want to wait any longer so we said we’d eat the pork. Not what we came for but we were hungry. She said she send dessert and apologized. While the pork had good flavor it wasn’t what we wanted and we left half behind. I went to find the lady, still no waiter, and told her we don’t want the dessert and just wanted to go. She said she’d be sure to charge us for the marisco instead of the pork which was $12 more. When they bill came she charged me for 2 paellas. I had to find her again to remove. She had several opportunities to make this right and never did. Most of the staff are very nice and the ambiance is lovely. In this industry one person can ruin the experience - or make it. In this case both the waiter and manager lost us a future customers.
