Had one of the worst dining experiences coming to this place for dinner tonight. Was greeted by a hostess who was on the phone when we walked in and then proceeded to take another call after she acknowledged us. Seated outside. Due to weather from...Hurricane Ira, we asked after being seated if it’s ok to move to an indoor table instead. The answer was no since they already booked our indoor table spot to another customer. Reminder that this is a Wednesday night on a bad weather night in the last days of the summer. The kickers was when I went inside to use the bathroom, there were 5 empty tables and the hostess was playing candy crush! Waitress was visibly angry when we did not order appetizers and made us feel extremely uncomfortable by this. Waitress only offered “a hunk of cheese” as a vegetarian option. Surprisingly the food was solid and the busboy was the only decent employee we encountered. To add, my side vegetable dish came out 7 mins after my entree arrived and they lied on the menu that the flambé would be table-side. Advice for the chef there - go to another restaurant- your current front end staff are dragging you down.More

We had a wonderful family dinner at Daniel’s Bistro and enjoyed the food, service, atmosphere & friendly staff. So nice coming out of Covid & back to dining here. I enjoyed the barramundi and shared a crab cake appetizer & haricot vert side. My husband...raved about the halibut special with its light citrus wine sauce, shrimp & asparagus. Everyone enjoyed their varied menu choices. A nice bonus to Daniel’s Bistro is the BYOB option, which allowed us to share a few bottles of wine together. The wait staff was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. It was a nice fifteen minute walk for us from the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk, but there was parking on the street and in their lot on a Sunday evening. Recommended.More

Karen the owner was super sweet, I’m a very food finicky person. But she made sure I was taken care of, the food and the services were the best. The duck was super good. Can’t wait to come back’

We were given a gift certificate just prior to Covid 19. We didn't want to wait any longer to use it as we didn't want any trouble if we delayed any longer.. I am so glad that I read about 5 pages of reviews before...going there to pickup a takeout order. Before placing our order I asked how much it was worth. I was told $100. When I arrived and the female owner took one look at the certificate she said that she could not honor it. It was blank. She didn't check her book or the computer. Just told me that (our son was out $100). When I told her that I had called a little before placing the order and the dollar amount was confirmed, she repeated that it was blank. It was mailed directly from them to us, I had the envelope with me thanks to the reviews putting me on alert. She then decided to honor it. Be aware if you huy a gift certificate there to make sure they fill it out in front of you. This could be a scam. Collect the money, mail out a blank form and refuse to honor it. SO glad I had the envelope with me. That said, the food was really good. Still hard to believe one can spend $95.00 and get 2 pieces of asparagus with 1 meal and no salad unless ordered separately. Pleasant atmosphere, well done. Food was perfectly cooked.More

Well Covid 19 stalled restaurants but Daniels reopened and didnt forget who they were! This restaurant continues to impress everyone we bring here! We went for the cowboy steaks last night and i would rate them with the best steakhouses in the US! Appetizers were...great as usual and service was top notch. Karen and Daniel aim to make your experience the best everytime and they still hit the mark everytime! Great job Kelly on great service also. We will be back as often as possible!More

We were discussing before we arrived how infrequently we have had a really special, well prepared meal in all the times we go out to eat. This was the one to remember. The ambiance, the better wine we brought with us, the hostess, the service...- excellent. The best part, though, was the food. The quality, the presentation, freshness? This sets the standard. Everything was outstanding. We were all more than pleased with our selections and all argued we had the best meal. Since I am writing this review, I had the winner, lol. Duck with black currant sauce - to die for. The PEI oysters were decidedly fresh, the salad, excellent. And dessert? Diet be damned. A dining experience well worth the cost - highly recommend it.More

First visit to this highly regarded restaurant 15 min. from our beach house. Our expectations were fairly high based on our local host’s comments and we were not disappointed. The ambiance is very pleasant and the menu focused but with plenty of options. I had...a fillet with au poivre sauce which was perfectly cooked, seasoned, and of very high quantity. The other three had short ribs and very equally impressed. The service was excellent and the restaurant is BYOB. I understand reservations are a must so plan ahead.More

We ‘re lucky enough to have a number of outstanding restaurants in our area. One of the very best is Daniel’s Bistro. It’s very hard, if not impossible, to find better food and service. We went again this week and were glad to see that...everything is still up to its high standards. Danny, Karen, Rachel, and Deena make a great team. We’ll be back again early in 2020.

Not having a Daniel's is one of the few reasons we regret leaving NJ. Both the one in Avon and the one in Point Pleasant were absolute top notch - all the way around! The best food and service we've ever had in the 25 years... More
