My husband took me to this restaurant for our 1 year anniversary. The decor was very classy. You definitely have to dress up to fit in. Of course, I wasn’t prepared for that. As for the food, it was great! We were given the muse bouche (sp??) and that contained bite sizes of hummus, asparagus jellie, and some goat cheese with parmesan crisp. Very yummy! For appetizer, my husband had the tuna tartare and he said he liked it. I had the pookeye crab salad. It’s basically real crab meat with avocado and some greens for one dish and crab meat with carrot froth in a cup. Very yummy indeed! For our main course, my husband had the duo beef (short rib and a beef tenderloin). I thought there wasn’t anything special with the short rib, but still very yummy. I had the black cod wrapped in potato gratin. My husband said it was a bit bland and I agree. Finally, the dessert was amazing. My husband had the souffle, but it’s really an upside down chocolate lava cake. I didn’t have any because I wasn’t up for anything chocolate at that point. I had something called the cranberry-lychee sorbet fanfair. The dessert had different forms of marshmallows and cream and sorbet. Very very yummy! Very Light too! I also had spearmint tea. One caveat…I don’t know why they did this, but they brought out a basket of little madeleines for us. The were Super Yummy!!! In the end, we were really stuffed. Food was great, even though we had a few glitches. I definitely recomment people trying it out here, if you have the $$$. We probably come back in our 25th anniversary. Hahahaha..

Not even a one star!

I have visited several 1-3 star restaurants in Europe and I can’t understand how Daniel is regarded as a three star restaurant. I spent $1000 on a taste menue for two. First it was only eight courses – I’m used to at least 12. The selected wines were good but out of the eight courses only one gave me a close “wow” experience. For a three star place ALL courses should give me a “wow” factor! Also one of the corses was ordinary duck/goose liver – what is that??? Even though it’s good I can buy my own can of goose liver…

Another thing, we didn’t wear our best but ok because we travelled light on our way to a djungle tour in Costa Rica. We were kind of treated like second class people. One recommendation: Spend your money elsewhere!

I expected more from Daniel’s reputation and the price. A few things were amazing (e.g. the amuse bouche and starters) but others were dissapointing). Petit fours were fabulous, as were the madelines. Overall, I’d prefer to go back to Cafe Boulud instead.

I’ve proably eaten here about 10 times or so over the years. “Back in the day” it was good, but I prefered Soltner’s Lutece and Kunz’s Lespinasse. For awhile they had this great sommelier named Jean-Luc Le Dieu (sp?). That guy was awesome. I’ll give an example why it’s not “over the top”: there used to be a $30 or $40 ‘supplement’ item of tuna tartare with ossetra caviar. Consider: for the same $50 (considering you paid for that course in the prix fixe), you could have Toshi Uezu’s TORO with BELUGA caviar! That used to piss me off.

The ambience of this restaurant was great. Sit in the lounge instead of the main dining room because it’s a lot cozier and you get to sit on couches. Boulud even came out himself to say hi to all of us!

oo la la~ great for special occasions. a bit too “chilly” for me, but why not? love the personalized service. garcon!

Unlike Per Se and Le Bernardin, this is much more suitable for a cozy romantic dinner— the perfect way to impress a date. The service and food is impeccable. This is the most beautiful and romantic restaurant in the city.
