Daniel??s is a very versatile location for everything from date night, to celebrating a special event. The dining room with its amazing views of Lake Union is the perfect setting for a celebratory dinner ?? birthdays, anniversaries, holiday gatherings. Food is cooked to perfection, and then served by experienced, attentive waitstaff who stand tableside while you cut into your meat and make sure it is cooked to your liking. Their specialty is steak and you will see why when you taste the wonderfully tender, flavorful New York, heavenly with the addition of the peppercorn brandy sauce. The lamb is melt-in-your-mouth amazing and seafood is fresh and delicious.

The bar is a great choice for a date. Get cozy and pull up a comfy overstuffed chair by the fireplace. There is an early as well as a late happy hour, seven nights a week, where you can enjoy half price appetizers, and great deals on beer, wine and martinis. Try the steak strips, popcorn shrimp, and depending on how things are going, the oysters on the half shell. Live entertainment in the piano bar is offered on certain nights for even more ambience.

For your very special occasion Daniel??s also has elegant private dining rooms on the lower level with their own private outside deck. Or just hold an afternoon soiree in the piano bar. The catering staff is amazing with a range of budgets!

Our first visit to Daniel?s was for a birthday celebration (a party of two on a Thursday night). The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. We were seated at a both that had a nice view of Seattle's waterfront and city lights. The entrees were perfectly timed/spaced. We had read the reviews and were prepared to look for free public parking, high-end prices and not to expect birthday cake. Our dinners (filet mignon, lobster, New York steak...) were cooked perfectly. The lights were nice and dim, and to our surprise the waiter used a small flashlight to ensure that our steaks were cooked to our liking. We got another very pleasant surprise at the end our meals - we received a nicely presented chocolate mousse cake with white chocolate flakes and a lighted candle, the waiter even sung along to Happy Birthday with me - how sweet:) The atmosphere was cozy ? you could hear the live piano music and the bar-life in the background. Overall, we would go to Daniel's again for any special occasion. Our waiter, Thomas, really made the evening special.

Cons: Charge for parking

While looking at a great view, enjoy some of the best steak in Seattle. The teriyaki steak is to die for, and they are very good about cooking your meat just how you order it.

Another one of my favorite restaurants. I like this better than some other steakhouses in Seattle/Bellevue. I'm not sure if they cook it differently or use less butter but I love it. They have a wonderful teriyaki steak appetizer and I have friends that love their oysters (I'm not such a fan of these little friends). It's a nice location and has great views right on the lake.

What a wonderful dining experience. The food is presented in a very attractive way and the steaks are excellent. The waiter was neatly attired, very polite and efficient. The visit to Daniel's exceeded our expectations and I would certainly recommend the restaurant to friends and relatives.

My husband & I went here for Thanksgiving dinner and I have to say the food wasn't even mediocre. The service was great - we had a fantastic bottle of wine, and they accomodated our request for a table with a view, but the food wasn't even as good as we could have gotten at Marie Callendars and cost 2.5 times as much. My turkey was dry and lukewarm and my husband's prime rib came out cold and cooked medium (bordering on well done) when he had asked for it medium rare. He returned it and got back the same piece now hot, but completely overdone. The 'creme brulee' for dessert was a thick eggy custard; at least the pumpkin pie was palatable. Neither one of us ate our whole meal, nor did we bother to take anything home (very, very unlike us). Luckily we had a gift certificate because if we had actually paid for that food, I probably would have cried. I'm really surprised by how unappetizing that meal was - it wasn't like the place was packed with people (there were a few empty tables that i could see) and the food wasn't anything unusual. All we wanted was a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to make up for being far from family, but instead we got good wine and good service but horrible food. I will definitely not eat there again - especially at those prices.

To begin with,Daniel?s Broiler is NOT a top-notch steakhouse at all,especially not in Seattle;the Metropolitan Grill has the best steak in town.Anyway,my first and final visit to Daniel?s Broiler was last night;my girlfriend and I were celebrating our birthdays so we invited ten of our closest friends for a dinner.I was disappointed immediately after arriving at Daniel?s Broiler with their valet parking employees and rules;I had a better customer service in Les Schwab a day before.I was mad when I was told that I have to pay $5 for parking or to go somewhere else and park my car myself.I was embarrassed that my friends will have to go through the same regime so I had to organize parking for everyone before they arrive,I paid for each car.The second disappointment was our small table; there were 12 of us sitting at the table for six.It was hard to move and impossible to fit all plates,glasses,and vine bottles at the same time.The food quality is average,I had a better steak from Costco,and for this reason prices are absolutely ridicules,too high for nothing.Atmosphere was fine except for the air-conditioner blowing ice-cold air directly at our heads,I wish I had my hat for skiing last night;everyone was freezing,after complaining to our food server the air-conditioner stopped for a moment.Our food server was nice but semi-professional and the biggest disappointment came from him at the end of our dinner.At some point he asked me what is the occasion and I told him that we are celebrating our birthdays.Through my experience from previous birthday parties at Hilton and Four Seasons I was expecting that he will come back with a small cake or bottle of wine on house,and this felt really nice,but the best joke ever was that he brought as two little empty plates with small candles burning in the center.For a moment a felt so embarrassed and everyone was stunned,but then I started to ironically laugh to break the silence. Wow...that was so creative - thank you.

I've been to Daniel's Broiler a few times and I've never been disappointed. My mom and I enjoyed Thanksgiving Dinner in 2005 at Daniel's and were thrilled with our meals. They offer the traditional turkey with all the fixings but we opted for the Prime Rib. It was to die for! They also have delicious surf and turf entrees that I wish didn't hurt the wallet so much! This place is great for business dinners.

Ok. So I have my own "Best of Seattle"list. And this place gets my vote for offering the best service. I've enjoyed dining at each of the Daniel's locations ,which have their own individual style of comfortable atmosphere. The menu offers plenty of choices and will please even the most discerning tastes. (I must recomment the Lobster Bisque! )The entire staff at any of the Daniel's Broilers are friendly, helpful and they'll even remember your favorite table.

Hands down the best steakhouse in Seattle. It is better than El Gaucho, Metropolitan Grill and The Brooklyn. For those that don't want steak, there have the wonderful crab cakes. The lobster bisque is excellent. Desserts are also amazing!! The Valrohna chocolate cake is superb!!!
You will never be disappointed here.

Our favorite spot to go for every anniversary or any other special occasion. Their steaks are PERFECT, If you love meat this is the place to go. Their view is gorgeous also if you get a window spot and my absolute favorite is when we get to catch the live pianist. Service is usually spectacular and for me, it's a very romantic place. :) Definitely recommend for a special occasion or if you feel like splurging a little. Oscar style is the best!

I have been to Morton's, El Goucho, The Metropolitan Grill, the Union Grill, and I have to say that Daniels was not even close to touching any of them for the quality of food. The maitre d', as well as Alex our waiter were outstanding. My steak was overcooked and my friends steak didn't even look like a steak. Not sure why they charge for parking either.

I absolutely love this place. My boyfriend and I take each other there for every birthday and every once in a while treat our parents to dinner at Daniel's. We only wish it was closer and a bit less expensive but if it was, we might just live there. I recommend it to everyone I know.

Well, we had a gift certificate and were looking forward to visiting this "famous steakhouse". I'm REALLY happy I didn't spend any of my money there...Costco ribeye's on a Weber eclipse the steaks here and cost 90% less.
Like Morton's, and Ruth's Chris this place feels like a chain and is, I guess, designed for soul-less drones with expense accounts to take other soul-less drones who need to be impressed with the prices on the menu.
If you want good steak, there are many, many better choices.

I am encouraged to see some other reviews mention half-priced wine - I know that Sundays they do that for the lower-priced bottles. Selling wine as they have, at 4x retail, is something that will alone drive me to other places that don't. At least they now use appropriate stemware for it, which is another 2005 change.

Having said that, the food has always been very good, and the view from either Lake Union or Bellevue is very nice.

We celebrate all our special occasions at Daniels, we love the special attention we get.The food and service are great. The Lobster Tempura appetizer is so tasty and 1/2 price during Happy Hour. I was surprised on our last visit that all bottles of wine were half price, such a deal. We will keep going back to Daniels.

Cons: Lack of Parking, View not Guaranteed, Smoke in Lounge

.

A place that has one of the best views on Union, and probably in Seattle allows smokers to ruin the experience for the 75% that don't smoke. In a progressive city like Seattle, this restaurant seems to be stuck in the past. Until they move into today's realities concerning second hand smoke, this place is rated by me to be a NO-GO!

I beg to differ with the last review. Yes, there is cigar smoking in the lounge. But, if you eat in the dining room - you will not even notice the smoke. The lounge was very well ventilated and I was sitting with three cigar smokers.

The food is wonderful - by far the best steak I've had in Seattle. It truly melted in my mouth. The service was great (except our waiter was not very well versed on the wine list) and everything from the appetizers to dessert were phenomenal.

Daniel's Broiler is the best of the best when it comes to steak. You will have one of the most memorable dining experiences as you're waited on hand and food. The steak is absolutely mouth-watering. The restaurant overlooks Lake Union and makes for a great view. This is the perfect place to go before the opera.

First, the good news. The steaks here are terrific. The lobster is very good (but at $80 it should be better) and the service is better than average. However, when your are spending over $200 on dinner for two, you shouldn't have to put up with cigar smoke from the bar. Even worse, it was smoke from cheap cigars. Neither I nor my date will ever return. If you want a great steak, try one of Seattle's many steakhouses. The view may be much better and you won't have someone puffing on a stogie just a few feet away. If you want lobster, try any of Seattle's great seafood restaurants. Few things ruin the taste of a lobster more than cigar smoke. If your date doesn't like stogies, don't even think about trying Daniel's for a romantic dinner!

My partner and I visited Daniel's for our one year anniversary. Since this was a special day for us, he made the reservations. I swung by on the way home from work and dropped off a bouquet of flowers (to surprise him). The host staff was very helpful with taking the flowers and 'staging' them for our arrival. From the moment we arrived, until the time we left, we were treated like royalty. The flowers were on the table when we arrived (which was a real treat). Our waiter was the phenominal Ryan - didn't miss a beat. We were treated like we were his only table, which wasn't the case at all. We enjoyed an amazing dinner, great ambience with a view of the water, and wonderful memory of our evening together. I highly recommend Daniel's (and Ryan) to everyone wanting to make that 'special event' memorable!

Being college students, my fiance and I don't have all that much money to spend on nice dinners out. That said, I do not begrudge a penny spent on our amazing dinner at Daniel's Broiler! My New York with peppercorn sauce was charred just perfectly to medium rare, and their mashed potatoes are a perfect compliment. Don't forget to save room for dessert! The seasonal tart (ours was apple) was the perfect end to the meal.

First, during happy hour 4:30-6:30 PM the house wines and, more importantly, the appetizers are half price. The latter is the deal: generous filet mignon steak sandwiches for under $10, steamed mussles or clams and an amazing lobster salad under $10! Second, it's a great looking after work crowd. Forget the expensive dinner menu and stop by happy hour. We do every week or so!

My friends and I decided to meet for drinks on Monday night after work. When making suggestions about where to go, one of them suggested Daniel's on Lake Union. Most of us thought that Daniel's would be, how shall I say this... a bit too "stuffy". But, my friend insisted that it would be fun because they have live piano. So, agreeing to expand our horizons a bit, we met there. It was GREAT! The piano player rocked (I found out his name is Joe Carolus). He played great music, the waitress was fantastic, and we even caught the tail end of happy hour before the show! We had such a good time that I thought I would spread the word. Everyone knows that Daniel's has great food, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find out how upbeat and fun their lounge is. We are even going back tonight!

Pros: Up-Scale, Good Energy, Live Music

Cons: Crowded

.

I've eaten at all 3 Daniel's & had office parties up to 25 people, and have never had a poor experience at Daniel's. Tip: if you've got 8+ diners, spring for the private room upstairs!

The service is warm & friendly, with a willingness to answer questions without hovering. The steaks are aged & tender & usually perfectly broiled.

The Heirloom Tomato salad is delicious, with Maytag Bleu Cheese. We usually split enormous lobster tails, or crab cocktail, which in Daniel's case has huge chunks of crab & a tangy sauce.

It's true that meals come ala carte -try the fantastic creamed spinach! - but many restaurants do the same thing. I'd rather do ala carte, since I know what I want to eat!

For deserts try the liquour-infused, chocolate-covered berries!

BTW, when you leave Daniel's, they've already valeted your car for you, without you waiting. That's service, my friends.

Well, we went in, parking was easy, the hostess was very nice, the service very good and we had good food. Oh.....we had a view of the lake too!

Job well done!

I went with some friends to check out their happy hour~ the food was good & the prices can't be beat. The cocktail server was on it, she never let our drinks run dry! Been there a few times for dinner before, service has always been terrific.

I will give it to them on service and appetizers...they were excellent! I have never had better service than I did at Daniels Broiler. One problem...the steaks were sub-par. You would expect a $35 dollar steak would taste like a $35 dollar steak. In fact, I have had better steaks purchased at Top Foods for $7.50. Plus they nickle and dimed you on every little item. Such as paying for vegitables when they should be included in the meal. I didn't understand that at all! If the meals were half the price, I would have gave it a better review...but no such chance this time. A real let down!

Pros: Service, Appetizers, Ambience

Cons: Food, Prices, Parking

Whilst on vacation in Seattle from London (UK). My partner and I were drawn to the views and location of Daniels Broiler on Lake Union, although we hadn't expected quite such a 'high class' restaurant (being located next to Burger King). Well the ambience was great, shame about the gum that some SOB had stuck under the table which then got stuck to my girlfriends pants. Anyway....Food was superb My girlfriend had the Lobster Salad and I had the best steak west of the Rockies. Only problem apart from the gum....Don't shine a torch on my dinner plate when I'm eating, alternatively get brighter lightbulbs. If the chef is that good he should know how a rare steak is cooked.
PS the dessert was to die for (Chocolate..Hot and gooey) Mmmmm

My family and I recently went to Daniel's to celebrate our Grandma's Birthday and had a wonderful experience. The food was fabulous and the portions were huge! Since my Grandma has a smaller appetite the server even offered to bring her smaller portions! We were treated like regular guests and greeted by name by our server who made the night extra special by providing a Birthday cake for our party even though we had not thought to pre-order one. We'll be back!

Pros: Parking, Service/Food, Piano Bar

.

This is the place to go! The service is personable and quick; the food is always perfect, and the atmosphere encourages you to stay "for one more brew". The piano can get grating, but it's do-able. Get to know the bartenders; they're the best!!!
