Only way I’d ever go back here is if I wasn’t paying for it myself - even then maybe not. 3 orders came back as “not in stock or available -1 bottle of wine and 2 on menu items”. The addition of 20% for a party of 4??? Plus a confusing expectation that there be an additional tip over and above?? Seriously it wasn’t earned. To top it off I waited for 15 minutes for my coat that, in the end out of loss of patience, I just went into to the coat closet and retrieved myself. Been here before, never was it this bad. Our waiter was solid, food was Ok (not deserving of the prices charged) but overall after this experience I’d find somewhere else.

Bread served was cold and hard. 20% gratuity was included in the bill which amounted to a 52$ tip. Server reminded us of the autotip. But didn't fail to remind us to feel free to add this amount. Lunch was 210$ tip 52$. Have had great steaks at other other places and better attention to detail and discretion. Went on the recommendation from radio personality.

Unfortunately they were out of almost everything including oysters and prime rib. Management was nice and they comped us crab cakes for not having what we wanted.

I ordered the double lamb chops and compared to the Capital Grille they were approximately 1/2 the size and 50% more expensive.

Nice setting, very expensive, small portions.

I have always liked Daniel's. Truly. We had Thanksgiving dinner there, and decided not to have turkey. They had a list of dinners for the day. All but one of those dinners came with stuffing- not just the turkey. Our dinners came, no stuffing. Then I found out that we were the only ones who mentioned it and asked. The kitchen was only giving stuffing to those who'd ordered turkey. Like they didn't know their own menu. I liked my food ok- it was pork roast- but really was a bit too dry without some gravy. It does not come with gravy. I asked for some, and they provided some turkey gravy, which was all they had. A bit odd of a taste combo. My husband's prime rib was excellent as were the salads, chowder, mixed drink coffee and sides. My takeaway from this experience is don't go there unless you're doing drinks or steak.

Bacon-wrapped scallops, bacon was over-cooked. Calamari was overbreaded. Spinach salad was, over-dressed. Lobster was over-cooked. Companions steak was good. To top it off, we were seated in a room with large and noisy groups. Adjacent was a six-top with three couples celebrating a gender-reveal. Possibly, one of that group was neither, not drinking nor intoxicated. They were all speaking loudly and boisterously to be heard over one-another. This is a table better suited for a private room. My companion and I could not engage in conversation. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed. I’ll be right back with that was the recurring phrase. All-in-all, not impressive and most-disappointing.

Ma friend and I went to this restaurant last night. The restaurant is really beautiful, i asked the front desk girl to set a table for us with a view to the lake and she showed me her favorite place in the restaurant and I love it, it was right next to the fire; facing to the beautiful view of the lake. The overall experience was excellent. Ma friend ordered the pan-seared Miso Ahi Tuna, she said it was good. And I ordered the Eye rib steak with out bone, I love steak , but I dont know for some reason mine wasn't as delicious as I expected it to be, it was good tho, just okay. And I think the restuarant is a bit pricey in fact very pricey. Their service is perfect!! I had a little surprise to ma friend wiz a birthday cake and they did a good job in that part. Maria came with her other coworker holding the cake lit wiz candles and it was awesome. By the way I gladly like to announce Maria knows how to give a good service. Her being there to take care of us makes the overall experience awesome.

The price vs the quality of food received just doesn’t make sense. I don’t mind paying a high price for something excellent, but the food here was mediocre at best. Also do not appreciate an automatic 20% gratuity. In my opinion, that takes away the incentive for great service when they automatically get the money no mater what. Probably wouldn’t eat here again.

Our server did not come to our table for an order for 20 minutes and when he did he was very rushed.
Both of our steaks were so char broiled that they tasted burned...certainly not worth the $170 we spent on 2 steaks alone!!! Very overpriced.
The service did improve slightly once we got our appetizer.
The pear martini was exceptional and the service in the bar before being seated for dinner was excellent as well.

There was a 5 year old child being allowed to climb under an empty table and go in and out of the back deck door. Food was alright. One of our steaks was overdone and one was ordered by server incorrectly (we ordered bone in steak and they brought a boneless) so it took 15 minutes to get a new steak. When we received our bill, we were charged for both steaks. There were no concessions offered for these inequities. $756 meal did not live up to Daniel's standard. Disappointing.

I would not recommend Daniels. The service was good although I forgot about the 20% (included) gratuity. The food was good, but WILDLY over priced. I thought I was in Beverly Hills or mid-town Manhattan. The restaurant was almost empty. Not sure your radio campaign is working to entice customers to visit your location(s).
I hosted clients for dinner at the Leschi location. Four people was nearly $700 with limited alcohol. I was once a loyal customer - no more. Good luck to the Schwartz family to right this ship.

Can't say enough good things about Daniel's! We recently had a dinner for a special occasion. Since we were hosting, but from out of state, I called to get help/guidance with flowers, cake, champagne, etc. Everyone was so helpful and just handled everything for us. Shelley was especially helpful in arranging all the extras and it gave us piece of mind that all would be good. Our waiter, Kevin, was also amazing - he even shared an appropriate personal story with us, that made the evening even more special.

After a tasty overpriced meal with an automatic 20% gratuity they tried to double charge me on my bill for valet parking, argued with me when I asked to have it removed, and then made me wait while they ‘checked with the server’. After shelling out $450, and having to deal with pettiness on an $8 mistake that was theirs, needless to say I won’t be going back.

I took my wife and my 7 year old daughter to Daniels for our 13th anniversary. We were seated promptly and received our drink order quickly. I ordered the ribeye which was amazing. My wife ordered the filet and lobster for her and my daughter to share. The fillet was burnt on one side. The server tried to explain that it was charred. My steak was charred the fillet was burnt. They replaced it with another. The lobster tail was over cooked and rubbery. Even the server commented that it was overcooked while trying to cut through it. They took her meal off our tab which was very nice. We did not expect not ask for that. The issue we had was once we commented about the fillet the speed and quality of service changed. My wife had a sprite and cranberry. She finished it about halfway through the meal and was never offered a refill or if she wanted something else. She even moved the glass to the edge of the table. We were quite surprised when we got the check, yes they did remove the fillet but they automatically add a 20% service charge regardless how the service was. What incentive is there for the staff to provide exceptional service you would expect from a restaurant like Daniels? Our tab was still north of $300. I have been to Daniels several times and will still be a guest there. I just hope they get it right next time.
