Valentine’s Day; the special menu was astronomically priced even in relation to other fine-dining NYC tasting menus

One of five must go spots in Manhattan for special occasions. Very pricey but you get what you pay for. Our Valentines Saturday lunch was superb with unmatched seating due to the earlier time. From the reception to departure the highly trained staff makes you welcome with knowledge and lack of pretense. All the four courses were elegant to behold and a symphony of flavors. The dessert course is a profusion of riches crafted under the supervision is the Pastry chef Ghaya Olivera and is equal to the best in the world. Drinks are special with a stellar and expensive list of curated wines. Very highly recommended for anyone’s bucket list. Bravo!

Dinner at Valentine’s Day.
The food was great as always. Price was double due to Valentine’s Day. Table was close to the entrance door. Rush service. Unfortunately, I felt it was a sloppy night.

Daniel is a special experience to be enjoyed as a couple or with friends. They made our evening special and paid attention to detail. The reason I gave the food a 4 vs. a 5 was because the courses over the 7 course tasting looked very similar. There was not a delight and surprise for any of the courses I have experienced at other Michelin 2 star restaurants. The colors on the plate were similar (sauces/placement) and cannot recall one that really stood out for me. My past experiences as 2 stars are notable and memorable courses. That said, the wine pairings were delicious and the overall experience for our table will be happily talked about for years to come.

Food was solid with the use of good seasonal ingredients. The duo hamachi and venison are particularly nice. The vegan chocolate dessert is also very delicious. Wine are also good value.

Service was incredible, servers were knowledgeable and offered great suggestions. The food was OK. Nothing was unbelievable as I was expecting. Quail Breast was one of the best items.

Stunning ambiance and supremely curated menu. Staff was impeccable and definitely made the evening all the more pleasurable.

$12 for a coffee is unfashionable and out of touch.

The service of course is top notch, but that opening bite reaffirms that the food makes the cost worth the trip. The whole experience was well worth it and perfect. Not one complaint from me or my wife. The staff went above and beyond to make our night special. The touches were so nice and added an amazing note to an already amazing culinary experience. The suggestions from the staff were superb along the entire journey.
