“Good Meal at Daniel”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

We have dined at Daniel before and it has been perfect. This time, while it was very good, we did not leave feeling that it was as special as before. The atmosphere and service are excellent and could not be better. We had the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Some menu items were amazing but overall the food did not meet our expections. Maybe our exectations were too high based on previous experiences, but for the price paid it was a good meal and not great. The wine pairings were spot on as usual.

“Special”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Daniel is a restaurant that is perfect for a special occasion. The ambience is chic and lends itself well to good conversation and the food is superb. The small portions a la francaise would lend you to believe that you'll go home hungry, but they are surprising filling and very rich. The service is impeccable. While elegant, the servers were also extremely friendly and helpful in their suggestions---They were also right on the mark with everything. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but worth every penny.
