What Insiders Are Saying
Our favorite place for fine dining in Manhattan. Daniel is an absolute classic. Save it for a special occasion and eat in the salon, where things are a bit more laid back.
Amazing night. Dannielle, Víctor and Ian made our visit the most memorable one
Excellence in every detail. Superb food and wine list.
Nice pleace in New York. Best food & best wine. I recomended
I’ve always loved Daniel. The food is superb and the service is top notch. They tend to every detail. If I’m ever in the neighborhood I’ll be sure to stop by. I’ve always ordered a la carte but the tasting menu is a great option too. If you love French food, this is a main stay in NYC.
My favorite restaurant in NYC, and that is a high bar. Great space, service, wine, and cuisine. Grateful that I can afford the occasional splurge and that my family loves it as much as I do.
Daniel is one of the finest eating establishments in the US.
Excellent food, wonderful flavors - put together with mastery. Friendly yet on-point service. What's not to like?!
Amazing dining experience nog to be missed!
Excellent food and service! We will surely come back.
Como siempre todo muy bien y el servicio excelente.
Daniel was everything I had heard it would be and exceeded expectations. It's not a meal, it's an experience. A true institution.
Food felt too prepped. Not fresh, seasonal and delicious. Ordinary. Not modern. Too bad because Daniel is an excellent chef (clearly he was not there) and the space is gorgeous. The restaurant has seen better days!
Simply sublime. Each course was a feast for the senses. We had the 4 course dinner and honestly by the 3rd course we were stuffed. Be sure to pace yourself The best special occasion restaurant ever. The servers are very helpful and attentive
We enjoyed our special dinner...a special place for a special day.
This is our third visit and we will be back
Excellent dining experience from food over service, perfect evening.
Great food, nice experience at Daniel. The service there is awesome! Love it!
The service and ambience were great!
The extras were generous and numerous.
BUT, the food was just ok and the portions were seriously small. I had a steak which to my surprise was miniscule and tough. The prices were pretty high.
We had a much better meal at Boulud-Sud were the food, service and price were very good. The only caveat was the noise level was high and the ambience was not nearly as good.
Food wasn’t memorable or outstanding whatsoever. After dining in several restaurants on par with Daniel, this was my least favorite. The service was impeccable but the food was disappointing. Not one dish was something we were amazed by, which I think is necessary for a Michelin restaurant and for the dollar amount.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Daniel's. We were seated at a wonderful romantic table. The service was impeccable!
It doesn’t get better than this! The ambience started with the door greeting person who then personally escorted us to our table. The staff was knowledgeable, accurate, and friendly. Food (and multiple amuse bouche) was a work of art. Allow at least two hours.
The red snapper was the best piece of fish in taste and texture I’ve had anywhere. Also best French food, including most I’ve had in Paris and Arles France.
Cost is prohibitive. Would love to come again but just wouldn’t be able to cover cost of another dinner for two on my retirement income. What a pity but at least I had this wonderful experience once in my life.
Thanks so much!
Everything was superb. We had the 4 course option with pairing wines which matched the food perfectly. The cheese/garlic bread rolls was the best bread I’ve ever had.
Second time around, exceedingly impressive.
This is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints! The food and service are outstanding ! The setting is beautiful, elegant and calming. The Precision and attention to detail is magnificent,
A tasty French with luxurious but relaxing atmosphere.
The most amazing dining experience ever!!!! I am sorry I did not get to thank Daniel for his amazing work but maybe next time. Truly a memorable experience.
It was mine and my wife's first time at Daniel. It was highly recommended by a friend. We had an amazing experience, and the icing on the cake was running into Daniel Boulud himself in the lobby on our way out. He was kind enough to take a photo with us, and he was very kind. We highly recommend.
amazing restaurant serving new flavor of french cuisine as well as providing high level table services throughout my stay. Also, experience of seeing around the kitchen was so impressive. Will definitely come back to Daniel when we revisit nyc in the future.
An outstanding restaurant not only with exceptional food quality and ambience of the venue but an exceptional service which impressed me the most .
Giovanni è un eccellente maitre, Karim un superbo GM
Daniel is one of my absolute faves in New York every time I go there which is three to four times a year I go to Daniel I can't Rave enough about it. It's not for the faint of heart financially but as the old cliche goes you get what you pay for.
This was one of many dinners at Daniel everything was a 5 star experience with the exception of main course meal for the first time in many years was not up to previous and expected standards. Also was the first time that chef did not stop by table, he spent most of our time dining at one table, attention and amenity that is assumed when one spends over $750.00 for a 2 person dinner.
Overpriced for similar tasting courses. Everything tastes like split peas. The signature white cosmos was delicious. That was the highlight of our experience. Service was very good. Takeaway treat was a nice touch.
Superb. We live close by but it’s not always easy to get a reservation. We went early because we were leaving early the next morning for vacation. The food is beautiful and over the top delicious. The service was spectacular. The room is so elegant. We may have been in the “cheap seats” but I didn’t care. One of New York City’s treasures. And I can walk home!!
