Come for a meal right after visiting Roosevlet House. This restaurant specializes in French cuisine. The advisable dish is the spectacular sea bass. If you like wine, order it at Daniel, it's excellent here. The friendly staff meets you at this place all year round. The amazing service is another important point. Beautiful decor is appreciated by guests. It's a nice place with the awesome atmosphere. This two-star Michelin restaurant is to provide you with showpiece meals cooked by a well-known chef. This spot was honored to receive 5 red knife-and-fork symbols and be named one of the best Michelin addresses because it gives a feeling of real luxury.

I would have preferred to not write a negative review, but, sorry, in this case Daniel restaurant could not care less about my experience and I'm very disappointed. Maybe it's because I'm a native NY'er, maybe it's because I don't speak French even after 7 years of study. We showed up without a reservation the other evening, enjoyed cocktails at the bar, and mentioned that if a table became available in the "dining room," we'd love to celebrate my "birthday" at Daniel. We were offered the lounge. I have dined at Daniel in the "restaurant" various times previously and was hesitant to sit in the lounge. We asked about the menu and I told the m'aitre de I would never sit "upstairs" for a price fixed  menu...the room is just too casual. He assured us that though it's the same menu, we could order "a la carte." We figured for a couple of courses with our drinks, why not. We were seated in the lounge and had the lovely experience of watching waiters  running around the table of 10 guests seated next to us. Not an intimate experience, not a relaxing experience, most certainly not for a Birthday. The a la carte menu is ridiculously priced. Though the The 7 course meal is $225 and the 4 course is $151, We were charged $82 not including tax or tip for that same "2 inch" piece of beef a la carte. Other than the $35 tiny portion of gnocchi, all the other items on the a la carte menu were priced over $60.  Yes, all these items are 2 ounces of food. The desserts are $24. Clearly because of the price points, the lounge is not for a la carte dining. Btw: out entrees were brought out while I was in the ladies room. That 2 inch $82 piece of beef was served cold. We spent over $400 and my husband was starving. Btw: the bread is GREAT!!! And the food is quite good (other than my dessert) BUT, How desperate is Daniel for diners that they'd push us to the lounge when I clearly stated I would not do a price fixe menu in the lounge because I don't consider the lounge a place for a fine dining experience!!! When I called the manager, his response to me, was that next time I should make a reservation. Yes, I was punished because I didn't make a reservation. Shame on you, Daniel.
Absolutely amazing! I made reservations here for my fathers birthday and it did not disappoint. I chose to make the reservation to sit in the lounge area as the formal dining room only has the option of the tasting menu, and I wanted to be able to do a la carte from the menu. The space itself is beautiful, with lots of plush velvet and leather and a gorgeous bar when you walk in. The menu was varied in its offerings and everything we ordered was incredible in presentation and complexity of flavors. Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours on dinner as it is truly an experience. I would also say to make sure you make reservations well in advance of when you want to go, as they fill up very quickly. I would highly recommend if looking for a special occasion to celebrate.
This is one restaurant that will always set the standards in the city a classic that you would never go wrong.
