The extra touches that the staff added to commemorate this anniversary dinner were very special and well-received by my wife. This includes the customized dessert and especially the specially printed menus that reflected all of our selections of the evening. Thanks to everyone!

Daniel is my favorite restaurant in New York. Food is great and so is atmosphere. I love the menu---both great seafood and meat. You can order an appetizer and two entrees. I love the fish---branzino and dover sole. Vegetarian items are also good. Staff is very friendly and efficient. We love the decoration. Price with tip comes to less than $300 per person.

Service was excellent. It was the birthday of my wife and they made everything to make it special including an additional dessert with candle. The food was very good, cannot say differently but compared to other michelin star place was not the best we ever been. Dessert was excellent. Wine was very good and the maitre was very nice and helped selecting a very nice one. Overall very good

Went for our Anniversary, lovely formal dining room. Had the 7 course meal with premium wine pairing which was perfect for the occasion. The sommelier paired all meals perfectly starting with the foie gras to the veal. Highly recommended.

Excellente service, Eeven though our table was not ready on time. Jorge was excellent, he knew everything about the wine and took exceptional care of us. Lived the added touch of the extra puff for our purse.

A delicious evening of exceptional culinary delights, with a memorable wine paring which left us with a most pleasant glow, in an inviting comfortable setting with impeccable service. The graciousness of Daniel's staff was abundant as we found ourselves lounging and talking until 1:00 A.M. We were the last to leave their beautiful dining room, never feeling that they were about to usher us out; it seemed that we could have remained all night long. The only thing missing was an invitation to Daniel's 2nd floor suite, for one more apéritif. We've been before and we will surly return - for another magical NYC evening where graciousness resides in abundance.

Our favorite course was the King Salmon with Japanese seaweed, it was a very exciting experience. It was my wife's birthday and there were many delicate surprises at the end of the dinner, we enjoyed it a lot. The place was elegant and pleasant, perfect for a romantic celebration.

Daniel was a real disappointment, the flavors in our plates were missing, out of 4 dishes, only one was at the level we were expecting from a place with such high standard. The service was very thoughtful, with a lot of little attentions but again, we chose to go to Daniel for the food, not for the service.

We went to Daniel for our Daughter's 12th birthday. The food was exceptional, the service was outstanding and we highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back when in NYC again. We had the 4 course menu - every single dish was superb and served in a timely manner. The cocktails were amazing. They even had "fancy" cocktails for the children, which they loved. We really enjoy fine dining and this would be up there with one the best restaurants we have been to, including fine dining in Paris.

Very very pricy. Sole was not the best I’ve ever had nor was the beef. I think you really have to be in the mood for the three courses. It was just too much put in front of me.

The food and the service were great. The only thing I would mention is that there are stairs there. So if you have a problem getting around it can be an issue. I had the lobster appetizer. The foie gras second course is wonderful. Well worth paying the extra $14 for. It melted in our mouths. It was two birthdays so we ended up with another two desserts. Quite a treat for sugar lovers.

The cocktails are well balanced. The food is complex (fancy French) and delicious. From start to finish, one could not ask for better quality food or service. I particularly enjoyed the mushroom dish. The poppy seed gêlée was a nice touch for the king crab salad. The little extras for dessert as well as the personalized printed menu to take home were a nice touch.
