    We celebrated our daughter’s birthday at Daniel’s Lake Union. We requested a table with a view and were seated along the windows overlooking the water on a gorgeous night. Our server Curtis was great, the food was great and we had a wonderful evening:). We had a variety of appetizers and entrees and everything came out on time and tasting delicious.

    Food was good, steak was a bit chard. Plus the bus boy kept coming around to often and took our plates Whoo we were still eating. He kept stopping at our table over and over again. We had to stop conversations multiple times to say we were not done yet It was odd

    Daniel's Broiler - Lake UnionResponded on March 27, 2024
    Dear valued guest. I think you misunderstood the 20% service charge. It goes go toward compensating the staff with higher wages. If you need clarification as to how it works, feel free to speak with a manager that would be happy to assist. As to prices, we cannot control inflation. Best,

    I am not happy with either the giving a credit card in advance to hold the reservation, nor in the automatic 20% service fee. Had I not already invited the guest, I would not have booked here. Otherwise a good place. Wines are pricey, food generally expensive. Can be quite noisy. I have been there many times. Likely my last given the first two issues.

    Food and Service were top-notch (as usual at any Daniel's). Ambience and Noise levels were also very good, just right for a weeknight dinner. I rated the value "low" or "lower" than past visits. It's been some time since this particular work colleague and I have been to Daniel's, but we have done so many times pre-Covid. We ordered roughly the same meals this time as in pre-Covid visits but were really surprised at the total cost - significantly higher. To be fair, the bottle of wine was a bit more than past (+$50), but all other food/drink same. Guess we chalk it up to inflation. It's disappointing, but long-term will not keep me away (maybe fewer future visits).

    I treated my clients to dinner last night and had a 20% gratuity added, in my case that added tip was about $150.00. That's a big tip since we only had one server. I did not appreciate the attempt to explain away my $150.00 tip as some kind of service fee that goes to the millionaire owners, as if they did not make enough profit on a $700.00+ meal and drinks? Instead they hit me with an "Additional Gratuity Line" and in front of my clients I felt obligated to add $20.00 more, but WHY? I would have much preferred to just tip extra on my own, based on the service, and I don't mind the 20% mandatory tip. What was egregious and the first I have ever seen in my lifetime is insinuation that my $150.00 tip did NOT go to my server and so I had to tip her even more? C'mon guys! This seems like greed. Your prices were certainly high enough to earn the owners a profit without having to take my gracious tip away from my server. And then guilt me for more money. Shameful.

    The service was incredible. We’ve had really great dining experiences in the past but this one was just “ok”. My steak wasn’t cooked enough and they promptly took it back to let it cook a few more minutes. The issue was that when I got it back the outside was charred. The burnt taste ruined the steak for me.

    We have been huge fans of Daniel’s for over 20 years. I worked for Audi of America and hosted multiple events from small to large groups. I have given my adult children Daniel gift certificates every year for Christmas. Unfortunately, I will never dine at Daniel's again as long as the automatic service charge is in effect. I don't believe in the concept and will never eat at a restaurant that uses this extremely deceptive practice. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me at 206-295-3112. Sincerely, Steve Kohn

    My girlfriend and I had reservations on Valentine’s Day for dinner. The entire experience was a miss. I rarely take time to write reviews but this resturant rang true to the fears I had. I am a local and have eaten at most of notable steak and seafood establishments over the years. This one does not compare food quality and service wise. My steak was just ok and was undercooked, the Oscar I added to it was terrible my girlfriend tried it as well and we both found it to be bitter and terrible flavor. The Ahi my girlfriend got was not fresh and tasted like no tuna I’ve ever tried befroe it was flavorless other than the purred basil they put on top. Getting over the food, our service was bad. We were left with our plates sitting in front of us for over 30 minutes waiting to get a dessert menu or to have our waiter check on us, so I got up and found someone else waiter and he helped us get boxes. She was not friendly and did not make it a special occasion at all but that’s not her fault Daniel’s did nothing special for the evening as a whole. There were no dinner specials ( that’s a first at a steakhouse) I would recommend going somewhere worth and with exceptional service , Daniel’s is not even in the same league that if you have been to similar priced: The Met, Ascend, John Howie, Bateau…etc Very disappointed, although two things were pretty good our cocktails and the bacon/scallop app. I don’t get how this place has so many good reviews have you all been to the places I listed above!?!?

    Nice location on Lake Union. Food is typically great, but not so much this time. My premium Wagyu Filet Mignon was undercooked and quite gristly for a Filet Mignon. They took it back and cooked it more, but of course the gristly part remained. When I told the server, he brushed it off as just depends on what part of the tenderloin you get. What? This was a very costly Wagyu and I could only eat half of it. Very disappointed.

    My husband and I just came here for an early Valentine’s date and had a fantastic time. We shared the porterhouse and got the split servings of mashed potatoes and broccoli. Pearla (spelling?) was our server and was very attentive and sweet. The steak was cooked beautifully and the sides had great flavor. The wedge salad and complimentary rolls were delicious, too! All in all, a great meal at a reasonable price for a date night (especially if you get the Costco gift cards).
