    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

    Was great. Family really enjoyed the atmosphere. You really get a lot of food for the cost. My kids shared the bone in rib eye and I shared with my hubs porter, had massive left overs. We did have extra sides and appetizer.

    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).

    Really pleased with our dinner here at Daniel’s. Seated very quickly, friendly server arrived almost immediately for our drink order which is really nice. The views north across lake Union are stunning and our booth was situated to take full advantage of this. Our waitperson helped us with a few questions. The food came quickly and was excellent I ordered the bone in ribeye cooked medium-rare and it was perfect. The creamed corn side was delicious and plenty to share with my companions. Too much food for me to finish so I have lunch for tomorrow! We opted for dessert, cheesecake and crème brûlée, also excellent. Was it expensive, yes but worth it for a special occasion. I highly recommend.

    Beautiful view, steaks done to perfection. The steak add on with blue cheese made the meal, get it and avoid the ‘meh’ hollendaise topping. Service and ambiance were stellar. The maître d tried to explain the imposed ‘gratuity/service fee’ but it was confusing.

    The food was good, and the server was accessible (a little over the top, as a matter of fact), but the background music was so bad that we were laughing about it. The music seems to have been chosen to appeal to fans of Frank Sinatra who don't actually want to hear Sinatra's songs - instead they want to listen to the other people who were recording when Sinatra was popular. That would suggest someone who was young in the 1950's, so apparently Daniel's is creating an experience optimized for octogenarians. It was simply bizarre to hear two separate covers of "Mac the Knife" during a single meal.

    Steak ordered “medium well” but undercooked, then overcooked. Food way too salty including steak, chicken, potatoes, sauces and bread (which was also stale). $18 drink was under-poured. Wait staff and manager were great, apologetic and accommodating. They were clearly embarrassed. For the prices being charged for their food this was an incredibly poor experience. This experience at the Lake Union Daniel’s is in sharp contrast to the exceptional food at Daniel’s in Bellevue. We won’t be back.

    The service during dinner was amazing. All of the staff we encountered were incredibly friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. But I was so disappointed by the lackluster food. It was not worth the cost at all. Add to that disappointment was my further disappointment at the dismissive treatment I received from the GM the next day regarding a “lost” phone situation at this location. I will not be returning to Daniel’s nor would I recommend it to anyone looking for a fine dining steakhouse experience in Seattle. You had an army looking for it and no one could find it! Yet somehow it miraculously turned up the next day when I threatened to ca the police. Like I said. I will never spend any money at your establishment again. Cheers!
