    We were told (warned) just as we sat down that we would be limited to 2 hours, as if we were planning to take over for hours (tacky). We would have been done in under an hour, had the service been more efficient. It was a set menu with options, $75+ per person. It felt like we were at a cafeteria right away. We ordered drinks first. We got the drinks AFTER our salads were finished. All 5 of us ordered the caesar salad (choice of that or clam chowder.. meh). Mine had no croutons- actually comical. Finally the drinks came. The one cocktail was disappointing to all who tried it. Oh well. Next, our table had two prime rib- they looked like two different meals! One was gray and shriveled, the other was large and more pink, but it was missing it's gravy. So sloppy.. One of us ordered the delmonico steak- a huge cut of meat, ordered "medium." It was completely blue-raw in the middle. Cutting into it at the beginning to check doneness, as the server suggested, was difficult, because it was so big, and its rawness was discovered late. So, at over $100, that was disappointing. The two filets were fine (Jak's restaurant is much better). We waited forever for our dessert, which was ordered at the beginning of the meal. Our wine glasses were empty. Cheesecake finally came- every bit as good as Costco. I didn't mention the starter- Autumn Relish Tray, was sad and not worth discussing.This dinner was such a disappointment. Daniel's used to be one of the best. Never again.

    Daniel's Broiler - Lake UnionResponded 3 days agoDear patron, Thanksgiving holiday is a very busy day, with an overwelming volume of valued guests. To ensure that we can provide everyone with proper seating and time frame to enjoy their meal, we give everyone a generous 2hour time limit. Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful, as all of our staff worked very hard to provide a great holiday experience for our guests. -Management

    I was a smidge disappointed - basically no one in Restuarant because if the night before turkey day. The rolls were dry when I say dry they had the be sitting out all day and or weeks old and are not fresh. The butter with salt couldn’t even mask it. The wedge salad was the smallest item I’ve ever seen. The cost for 4 600.00 plus. It’s like they did all to provide little value and supply shortage on lettuce - weird honestly I would never return other places to enjoy with better value skimping on food for the amount is embarrassing

    I have been a patron of Daniels for over 20 years, and last night was a complete disappointment. From lack of parking and no valet, removal of all the classic seattle photos of the influencers who built the brand, the elevated costs, the removal of table linens, the lack of ability to time items appropriately and finally the complete and utter disappointment in good quality- it was very sad, and I will be sharing this experience with many including the people whose photos were removed. This Seattle icon is in trouble, except for the patrons who don’t know what it was and should be.

    We were celebrating an Anniversary and Birthday. Jeanette our waitress made the whole experience very enjoyable. Jeanette is an amazing waitress! All the food was delicious but the salmon I had was outstanding, cooked perfectly. We wanted to finish the evening in the bar, but it was closed at 9:00 on a Saturday. That was disappointing because it’s a fun, relaxing bar. Thank you for the great experience.

    Service was excellent, Carlos was great. The meal was great and bountiful. I used to wait tables and I always thought tipping should be dispensed on merit for service not mandatory, I always tip generously but now it's part of the bill. There is no other business which handles labor costs in this manner.

We can’t thank the staff enough for the extra special attention they give to every aspect of the evening! And of course can’t say enough about our wonderful server Molly!! It was raining when we arrived and one of the management came out and escorted us in with an umbrella! You can’t beat that for special attention! Thank you all! Roger and Virginia Gabelein

    While the restaurant did state up front about the 20% service charge and collecting tax on the charge - it was outrageous. The menu prices were insane - $80 for an 8 oz filet with a baked potato. The service was so incredibly slow for a restaurant that just wasn’t busy. We waited more than 20 minutes for cocktails, the food was underwhelming (at best), and the menu plain boring. The cost of the meal for 4 adults closed in on $675. I am happy to pay for a great meal and tip generously for good service - but we had neither and yet had to do both. We should have walked out when we saw the prices - a mistake I won’t make again. Buyer beware.
