3 Star Rating Your typical Irish Pub/Sports Bar, it's a lot bigger than it looks from the outside. Service is decent, but not anything to really get excited about, and it can get a big crowded in the front when Hunter students stop by. The burgers are tasty, especially the BLT. Be aware that you'll probably have no phone service if you go to the back. Overall, a nice place to grab a drink, especially since there aren't a ton of bars in the area.

3 Star Rating Phoenix is good as a sports bar, but fails as anything else. The staff is super unfriendly to the point of belligerence and disappears for hours. We ended up having to go to the bar for drink and food orders several times. The food is also not great. The wings, while large, were just doused in red hot sauce, leaving them soggy and way too vinegary. The nachos were huge and looked a bit better. Beer selection was average, but nothing special and slightly disappointing for NYC. The only non major brand offered was Lagunitas which isn't exactly a tiny craft shoppe these days. The others were all domestic staples that were not at all exciting. I guess it is supposed to be a traditional Irish pub which is supposed to allow for a rougher atmosphere, but I just found it slightly dirty and sticky. The patrons are not people you'd want to associate with for the most part and a few verbal scuffles broke out toward the end of the night. There are better bars in the area.

5 Star Rating Great Happy Hours, Great Wings(HUGE BTW), Next to a cheap parking garage. Pool table and outside patio are a bonus. Bartenders are always great, Waitresses can be a hit or miss. This was one of my stops during my bachelorette party, The girls working that night paid the bar drunk to molest me via lap dance, good times..good times. Guy below me couldn't sound anymore like a pompous douche.

5 Star Rating From the second you walk in, the experience begins. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I think I got 10 good evenings on the way to my table. The restaurant is beautiful and so elegant. Service was impeccable! I ordered the 9-course tasting menu and it was incredible. The entire evening was truly amazing and the staff was perfection. I was also given a tour of the kitchen which was so impressive to see everyone in action. I made one last stop at the bar and had a wonderful drink. Incredible evening in NYC!

5 Star Rating The whole experience was phenomenal - starting from very warm welcome, ambience, service and especially the food. The tasting menu options were all encompassing with their best dishes and we really loved all of them. The desert experience was out of the world! Lastly we would like to note a special mention for Javier (captain for our section) - he made sure we had the best experience on a special day including a kitchen tour! Overall totally loved the Michelin 2 experience at Daniel’s and we would highly recommend it.

5 Star Rating This had to have been one of the best dining experiences in my life. I have eaten at so many Michelin restaurants around the world and the service at this place was absolutely outstanding. A 200/10 rating in terms of service. our waiter (Matthew who is now a Maitre D there!) had been working there for many years, gave fantastic suggestions on what to order, helped us figure out if we want a whole bottle of wine what type of wine, and how much of it we should order in conjunction with our meal. What really pushed the service over the top was that everything was perfectly organized, and our waiter went to the back room to even ask if they had extra leftover pastries for us as they had some freshly baked ones earlier that day. We left this restaurant so ridiculously fooled because of all the free dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. The interior was beautiful. We got a great side table where we could people watch and enjoy, the wine was superb. 100% would go back again and definitely recommend. I even felt that the price was actually quite fair considering the ingredient quality and amount of food you get 10 out of 10 place. Update 2024: we returned and were served by Matthew and Jorge, service, food and ambiance still exceptional. Will definitely return as usual!

5 Star Rating This past Sunday I had the great pleasure of dining at Daniel with great friends in celebration of my birthday. We had the four course tasting menu and we were stuffed. They had several extra little nibbles come out in addition to the ordered courses which was really great. The food was presented creatively and was delicious. The flavors were well balanced and the menu offered a broad range of choices. The drinks were presented beautifully and were equally delicious. The service was outstanding and what I expected at a Michelin star restaurant. It really makes a big difference to be taken care of with such care. This was the perfect restaurant to bring in a special birthday or other occasion. Thank you to the team at Daniel for making it very special and I’ll be happy to come back.

5 Star Rating Superb ambiance, a true feeling of Italian hospitality in a fun way. Loud, welcoming, over the top and even extravagant. The food was great (we had octopus and buratta) but the service was even better. We had a minor inconvenience during our dinner and waiters went out of their way to make up for it and make our dinner memorable (they did not have to).

Came here for lunch/brunch today and the food was fabulous - I went with the eggs benedict and the home fries are crisped to perfection, the english muffin toasted and buttered to everyone's delight, and the brioche french toast was light and airy with the freshest berries! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere incredibly cozy - the host was kind and welcoming and our server, Pete, was great! The coat check was a nice plus for a blustery day.

We were asked to leave even though we’d been there less than two hours. But, it was odd because nobody was lined up waiting for another table. Service was pretty great, and the restaurant was cute!

Thought there was clearly a mistake and they thought I ordered a bigger platter. Then her manager came over and said it was different prices for credit card and also different on the menu. I felt belittled by her tone and it was very sneaky. Update your menu Apart from this, cooking staff were very nice. Food was just okay

3 Star Rating I love this place, good price, delicious. I would love to give 5 stars. But today I buy 7 breakfast platter, each has 2 egg, some bacon, 2 hash brown, and French toast. I paid $113+ in cash. It means each one is $16.2 after tax and cash discounts. Their lunch is only $10.8…for 1 meat and 2 sides. There must be something wrong with my receipt lol. Sadly I lost my receipt and cannot go back. I strongly suggest they change their menu. It’s too old, hard to read, and no price on menu. Price can be more transparent. Hunter college students are the new generation. You will have more business from them if you update some of the store. If the owner see this review today and still remember me, please recalculate the price for me lol. I will go back to take a refund if there is something wrong and change it to five star lol. I will buy only the lunch if the $16+ for breakfast platter is correct….

4 Star Rating $4 is high for this one. This is basically a slice of grilled cheese. And burned on the bottom to boot. Medium thin, chewy crust, with a crispy, airy edge and good flavor. Kind of dry though. You need something to drink with this. Can't tell you what kind of seasoning is in the sauce, because I can't find any. In fact, can't taste any sauce whatsoever. This slice is... Okay. Give it a rating of 83.
