    My first restaurant will always have a spot in my heart. Go for the tasting menu with wine pairings and let our excellent team of chefs and sommeliers guide you through an enchanting meal.

    The food was perfect, they offer a 4 and 5 course menu as well as single choice if you sit in the lounge area. By far the best restaurant I have ever been to. The service is amazing.

    Service, food, ambience--this place is amazing. Came for a special occasion & tried the 4 course tasting menu. While it's only four courses, they fill you up with other goodies during your meal.

    Incredible French restaurant - experienced flavors and textures I never thought existed. Good for verrry special occasions :) cocktails are top notch, I enjoyed the "pass the buck".

    Do yourself a favor and order a white cosmopolitan. 7 course meal is the epitome of glutton; recommend you skip lunch if you plan to go for 7 course. The same goes for your entire table

    Get the three course tasting menu! Then you can add extra appetizers or desserts a la carte if you want to try more plates! Absolutely unbelievable food and service!

    This was a fun experience but I'm not sure the 7 course tasting menu is worth the price tag. Everything was good and perfectly presented, but I wasn't blown away by any of the dishes.

    A variety of menu options, including the standard 3 course prix fix and a number of tasting menus, are available at Daniel. With superb service and well-executed plates, and it's a guaranteed success.

    Top notch services. Professional, friendly yet not too formal. If you are getting the 4-courses menu. Highly recommend the foie gras but avoid the Wagyu.

    This Michelin rated restaurant makes for a great special occasion dinner. The best value is had in the 3 course prix fixe, or you can splurge for the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing.

    If you decide to go a la carte, try the meyer lemon royale with sea urchin, followed by the slow baked arctic char and if you have room, the warm guanaja chocolate coulant is a must!

    It is one thing to be in love. And quite another to be in love and seated in one of the world’s greatest French restaurants. A sumptuous and sensual experience by celebrated chef Daniel Boulud.

    A classic French restaurant at its best, its famous chef adds unusual twists and influences to traditional techniques. If a full-course meal isn't your style, dine a la carte in the lounge.
