The service was excellent and swift. Maybe too swift sometimes. We had a feeling of getting us trough as soon as possible.
The expectations were very high, but the food did not live up to it. It looked like art, but had too little taste in our opinion. We har the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. The reds did not meet the standard we expected, but the whites were perfect. All in all a nice experience, but not worth the money compared to other great restaurants we have visited.

We decided to celebrate our 42nd anniversary at Daniels. We arrived approximately 15 minutes early. The host found us a table in the lounge and took our drink order. At exactly the time of our reservation, a hostess arrived to take us to our table. We enjoyed the five course tasting menu, which was amazing (some photos attached) The service was also outstanding! The sommelier was very helpful in guiding us to a wine the was perfect and within our budget. Daniel’s is not inexpensive, but the food and service makes it worthwhile. Highly recommend for a special evening.

This is our second year going to Daniel for our wedding anniversary, it was truly remarkable and we were not disappointed at all.The food was exactly what was expected and the service was above and beyond. Everyone was so friendly and took very good care of us during our visit. Definitely looking forward to going back again to celebrate our anniversary again next year.

We had a reservation made long in advance for a birthday, we arrived 15 minutes early, and they sat us at the bar to wait for our table to be ready (normal). However, we ended up waiting for an hour! They never offered us drinks or anything to apologize for the delay. After that, the food was very mediocre. Everything was very heavy, and with a lot of sauce and the meat was hard to chew. Especially with it being a tasting menu you'd hope for a little levity, but we were already full half way through. And at the end of course the price was exorbitant. The place itself is very beautiful and peaceful, so I would recommend going for drinks only.

Food and service was great once we were seated at the restaurant. We arrived early to have to cocktails, but the bar was crowded and service slow. In general, it was a nice experience, but for the price tag I was expecting something even better. Not sure I would come back.

Overall quality is 6/10. We had to wait 20 mins before we were accompanied to our table. They offer jackets for men to wear in the dining room, and I found a used napkin in the pocket of the jacket that I rented. I had a tasting menu: waiting time between dishes reached up to 20 minutes - it was a little boring to wait (looks like kitchen processing is not optimized because I noticed other people waiting with empty tables). Wine pairing was pretty interesting. Food is definitely good but I would not say that the restaurant deserves 2 Michelin stars and prices of up to 1000 usd per meal for two.

We had a romantic dinner on Friday night but most of the customers seemed to be business meetings. The 7 course prix fixe seemed a bit much so we opted for the 4 course with the wine flight. The mackerel dish was superb, the garnishes perfectly complimented the mackerel. I opted for two appetizers (rather than the heavier second course), garden snails simply didn’t work, the sauce conflicted with the flavor of the snails and there inexplicably were dollops of mashed potatoes (!) I guess Daniel is taking style clues from KFC bowls. My wife did like the rice paper ‘chips’. The tuna main was excellent, fresh, perfectly cooked and complimented by the sauces. Both desserts were excellent.
Three out of four courses is a disappointment at a Michelin starred restaurant where dinner for two comes to over $700.

This was me and my moms and two friends very first time going here for my moms 61st birthday. The service was outstanding , everyone was so helpful, pulling back our seats, taking coats and jacket. They were so pleasant to be around. We enjoyed every minute of it. The food was extremely scrumptious. We are all coming back again before Christmas.

Whaat can you say about the best restaurant in America? Everything was perfect. The seven course tasting menu was delicious and the kitchen accommodated us by letting us substitute other chef's recommendations for a couple of the meat dishes which we do not eat. It was also great to see Chris again who has been promoted from server to lounge manager. We couldn't believe that he remembered us from two years ago. The service was impeccable and the timing of presentation of the various tastings were punctual but not such that we ever felt rushed. The wine list is more like an encyclopedia of world class wines. This is fine dining at its very best. Highly recommended for special occasions or just for a time when you feel like you need to really pamper yourself.

An exquisite, extraordinary restaurant with presentation, cuisine, wines, service, ambience worthy of more than the 2 Michelin stars it has had for years. Expensive but worth the experience if it's a special occasion and more often if you simply want to feel special.

Have been to mote than my fair share of Michelin-starred restaurants and Daniel is the only one I go back to. Other places may have another star, but Daniel truly embodies high-class dining across all aspects.
