    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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!

  • Lori L.
    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Epicurious
    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.
    Epicurious · August 24, 2010
  • Summer K.
    Boulud clan, hits French cuisine out of the park with this UES spot. Their tasting menu is something that everyone should try at least once, as is their extensive list of wines.

  • Mashka
    we did the 8 course chef's menu, they made sure to adjust the selections for my friend that doesnt eat meat. Staff very friendly and not uptight. Def. an "experience." And the dessert wow

    Nobody delivers the full-on French haute luxury experience quite like Daniel Boulud. From the moment you step through the revolving door, you'll finds yourself expertly cosseted, regularly delighted.

    The food was beautiful to look at, cool place for people watching. Food was ok, yellow tail in yuzu stood out no need for dessert as they give u many mini desserts at the end.

    Daniel Boulud hangs works from his private collection, including Valdés, Genoves, and Conroy. There is also a suite of photographs from Weingarten's 6:30 AM series featured in the Bellecour Room.

    Few restaurants can fill the dining room during an economic downturn. Daniel has firmly positioned itself as a gastronomic institution worldwide. The white Alba truffle tasting took my breath away.

    One of the finest New Frenchies in the nation. Be careful, but don't dawdle -- that edible sculpture made from seared foie gras with sliced kumquats ain't gonna dismantle itself. [BlackBook] Read more

    One of the best French restaurants in Manhattan hands down. The food is so beautifully presented and ACTUALLY tastes as good as it looks. Incredible place! Save room for desert!

    Beautiful food, warm dining room, low sound levels, hospitable service -- these are attributes hard to find in a New York City restaurant. Daniel manages to get all of them right.

    A treat to eat here. Loved the 7-course tasting menu. It's expenisve, but well worth it. One of the best dinners so far. : A+

  • Juicy Couture
    Another amazing restaurant by Daniel Boulud. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but we suggest you splurge and go for the 6 course tasting menu, you won’t regret it!

    The lounge provides a more diverse dining experience than the restaurant. Service/attention to detail was on point.  The amuse bouches were inventive and delightful.

    An elegant and high-end French eatery. The staff is always friendly and conversational. We love the eight-course “Grand Tasting,” which is paired with wine flights!

    The chef's dishes reflect an approach that is inventive but grounded in old French tradition — the slow-baked striped bass comes with artichoke barigoule and lemon arancini. Read more

    Good vegetarian offerings, amazingly creative drinks with impeccable presentation. One person had a white cosmo with a orchid frozen in a sphere of ice in the center of it.

    The sea bass is spectacular! Also, I highly recommend the White Cosmopolitan - ice ball with a live orchid inside it! 😯💛

    Great French restaurant, always a special occasion. I would pick Bouley if I had to pick between the two but Daniel makes for a lovely evening as well.

  • VORM Holding
    Complety overrated, not worth a detour. In europe it won't even be mentioned in the press. Chef is only talking with returning guests or probably guest who are spending a lot of money.

    This is serious, old school dining: Order a dish like canard à la presse or guinea hen & you'll get a tableside show. – Green Guide Editor

    One of the best in the city, but not my favorite. Service can be a bit stiff- hard to get them to crack a smile. Food is very good.

    Time to celebrate with the special 6 course tasting option. Include the Black Sea bass in your order to get an incredible light fish covered with delicious syrah wine sauce and crisp from tempura.

    Amazing food, amazing service. Everything I've had here is delicious, but the artichoke ravioli is one of my favorite dishes of all time.

    Great value white: Jurancon Sec (Southwest), based on gros manseng grape; yields intensely flavored wines. For a big red, consider the Mas Jullien (Languedoc), a grenache blend. Brilliant! agwine.com
