My family and I came here for restaurant week. It was quite busy when we arrived for our 8pm reservation. The hostess was very amiable, warm, and welcoming. After being seated they us out a complimentary small plate of bruschetta crostini and tomato soup, which was a nice start to the meal. Their bread is really good, hot and fresh.... More

Everything we had was excellent. Good bread a small taste of bisque to start. Clams and salad were very tasty. Even though we ordered the restaurant week specials, portions were very good size . The sea bass and the pork chop were very good. A complimentary brownie topped it all off. Service was very attentive.

I went there last night with my boyfriend to celebrate an event. The food was terrible. We started with seafood salad. It had mostly rubbery calamari, no scungilli and 2 shrimp. Absolutely tasteless. I ordered shrimp dish and shrimp were not good and small and no taste whatsoever. My boyfriend had the special pork chop and it was not tasty... More

Wonderful! Been there several times, I bring wine but they have a small selection, and no corkage fee. You're gonna cough up some dough, but it is worth it. Go for one of the specials, be brave, you can trust this place. We've had fish and red meat, never disappointed. Brought our newborn, and they were great about her and... More

Our third time here, love the food. The interior is a bit dark and could use a little spiffing up, but don't let that stop you from the great dishes they produce. Our waitress was attentive and experienced. My husband ordered the mussels in a wine/ garlic sauce, was probably the best mussels I've ever tasted and we shared a... More

I was a repeat customer to Daniels. My sisters and I spend a weekend in Avon annually and looked forward to our dinner at Daniels. However after our recent experience I'm not sure we'll be returning. First of all, I called and left a message to make a reservation per the message on ther answering machine. I never received a... More

Excellent food and service, ByOB an extra bonus. Oysters, zuppa de clams, escargot, and spinach salad all presented well at a comfortable outside table. Service was particularly gracious and attentive. We hope to return soon.

I had an excellent first time experience. I ordered the duck and it was probably the best duck dish in NJ. All the entrees in my party of 4 were superb. The Saturday night table was last minute, but we were offered a 8:4 5 reservation. The place was packed and the tables were tight. It is lively and loud,... More

We invited 2 couples to join us, as we have a good experience the last 3 times we visited. The quality of the food was excellent, however the quantity left a lot to be desired. We have dinned at several 4 star restaurants around the world and understand toy sacrifice quantity for quality. I ordered Oso Bocco and literally had... More

Mid afternoon on a day trip to the shore, we decided to have a (very) early dinner. So we identified Daniel's Bistro and saw that they opened at 4 pm. We walked in at 4:01! (lol) We hadn't eaten since an early breakfast so we were ready to eat and that we did! The Artic Cod and rib eye steak... More
