The front desk told us when we called that the patio was warm as there were heaters over the top of the tables. So we dressed accordingly. It was FREEZING. We huddles and drank several hot beverages and ate our entire meal in less than hour to get out of there. Daniels should not be eaten that quickly.

DB's done a great job adapting to the restrictions that the pandemic has put on everyone. Food was still just as amazing as it's always been.

Unfortunately, I can't say I'm a fan of their recent changes regarding service charges and commissions. Giving servers a bonus based on sales just incentivizes them to be pushy sales people rather than attentive servers. Over half of our interactions with our server were spent declining attempts at upselling our meal with extra food, more expensive options, or additional cocktails. The additional drinks I was particularly worried about, as it has the potential to lead to overservice in the interest of sales numbers.

I hope DB's will take the time to address these concerns and make sure patrons can enjoy their meal without feeling like every visit from a server is a pop-up ad.

Service was perfect, our Martinis perfect, splitting our Caesar salad at no extra charge nice, and steak was served medium rare, exactly as ordered. My only wish was that so much sauce had not been applied. Ordered the Daniels’s Delmonico, and the menu said topped with our signature steak butter. It was tasty, but this is a case where I think less would have been more. The meat flavor was so good, less sauce would have been a better choice for the chef to have made. My wife and I love going to Daniels’s and the South Lake Union location is our favorite, we often take out of town company and will continue to return. I just think every one of my Daniels’s reviews don’t need to be perfect.
