    Nice location, service was good, food was ok. Restaurant seemed really dated and not the cleanest. No atmosphere at all. Did not understand the price point here.

    We had a wonderful time with my father in law. We enjoyed the wagyu filet and the Daniel s house cut the most along with the Jirdori chicken. The margarita wasn't great but the old fashioned was top notch. The bay shrimp salad was delicious and the desserts were lovely.

    Friendly and attentive service. Lobster bisque is to die from. And so is the hot cookie dessert. Seriously one of the best desserts we’ve had in a long time.

    Overall average experience. The waiter was continously hovering over the table as if he wanted to smell our hair. The food was good, we especially enjoyed the bacon wrapped scallops. Steak was cooked perfect, and the king crab tasted very fresh. We decided on the cheesecake and it wasn't special but was still tasty. I just really would have preferred different waiter for 400 dollars I hoped the waiter would be a little more involved and not just a lurking creep.

    Daniel's has excellent steaks. I ordered medium well but received well done. The flavor and char of the meat were delicious, but it was a bummer that mine wasn't medium-well.

    Mother’s Day dinner. All in all disappointing for $800.00. Ordered two appetizers: Calamari was good, artichoke hearts were like something from TGIF. Caesar salad was really bland and had no zest to it. Wedge was decent. We ordered Rib-eye, 2 NY’s and a filet. Preparation was fine but nothing special. Meat could use more seasoning during the cook. Peppercorn sauce was very salty with a strong Anise aftertaste. I guess, but would skip for extra expense. Desert we ordered the oven baked cookie and the outside was burned (dark brown/black in parts), and the center was raw. Gross. Automatic 20% that goes to restaurant to pay employees based on sales. So I guess not to the waitstaff? Seems like not a great way to treat waitstaff, but maybe it does work. Seems weird to me. You can leave extra if you want but the auto 20% and overpriced food makes it difficult to pay even more. Won’t go back to Daniel’s. Way better steak houses in Seattle for special occasions and if you really want a prime steak.

    This was always our go to place for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries etc…we hadn’t been for a couple years and were disappointed with menu (way smaller) and prices (way higher). While I realize everything costs more these days we left disappointed with our meals. Drinks were excellent though.

    parking is minimal, or pay to park to spend $300 on a meal for two!...they do not validate parking for the lot next to their tiny one! the hostess was stuck-up, indifferent and rude. the steaks were not cooked as ordered. the lamp besides us had not be cleaned in 20 years, the shade on it had a quarter inch of dust on it. the booth seats were worn through and the walls of the booth were scratched and marked. not what i expect when spending $300 for 2 steaks. it also took forever to pay. i would never go back unless it was free.

    I have been to Daniel's Broiler twice now, once for Thanksgiving Dinner and once to celebrate my sisters birthday; both visits were fantastic! The food was excellent, and the service was top notch. I wish I could afford to eat there more often, but the prices (although worth it in my opinion) are expensive enough that it will remain a destination only on special occasions.

    Food was delicious, as always. Service was excellent, friendly & attentive without being annoying. But, wow, at nearly $200 each not sure it's worth it anymore. We didn't have appetizers or drink excessively - one cocktail and one bottle of wine but the bill was still almost $200 each. I love Daniel's, but just not sure I love it THAT much.

    The appetizer, fried calamari was fair, not bad, not great The steak was good, cooked as asked, The waitress did a great job from start to finish. Cocktails were average, I doubt they use fresh lemon juice, but bottled juice of not great quality, cosmopolitan was tasing like candy, whisky sour was average, and a Martini lemon drop was better but very light in vodka, limoncello was bringing a nice touch. Cocktails were overall disappointing.

    Incredible service. I ordered the bone in ribeye and it came perfectly cooked and seasoned. We also had lobster, which was also amazing, and the mashed potatoes were great and so were the vegetables. We had excellent wine and a dessert coffee that couldn’t have been better. It was an unforgettable meal. The cost might be intimidating but it’s worth the splurge to be treated so well!
