Daniel et Daniel

  • 8

I posted this afternoon and the post dusappeared so I am trying again to see what would happen.
Grilled beef tenderloin:
My wife's portion-medium well
My portion- grilled on the outside but tasted like steamed to totally well done on the inside.
Another guest at our table gave her dish to her husband because it was inedible.

Based on that, they will not be getting a job to cater for a large professional meeting next spring.

So disappointed.

  1. "guest at our table gave her dish to her husband because it was inedible."

    That's not very nice to give your husband something that is inedible, no matter how hungry he is. I go to tastings often for weddings and events and D&D is one of the most consistent in town.

    1. This place is a joke... I don't understand how they get any business.

        My one and only encounter with them was about 4 years ago. They were so rude I vowed never to return. We stopped in a few days before christmas looking for some unique items for our new years eve party/dinner. I guess they were in the weeds at the time but that doesn't excuse their attitude or behaviour. They pretty much told us to take a FF if we expected to place an order for NY this late in the game.

        I ended up at my usual haunts: Summerhill Market, Patachou, Cumbrae's, the Five theives and was able to get everything I needed and more.

        Daniel et Daniel sucks! I've never known anyone to use them actually, and besides that, nothing in the shop or menu appealed to us. I don't think I'm missing out.

          I went to a wedding last night catered by Daniel et Daniel. The food wasn't amazing, but it was pretty good wedding food. I would certainly give them a shot for catering in the future.

      2. This is too bad. I've worked with them many times for large professional events (400 plus people) and have always had a good experience.

        There are many good caterers in this city so just keep looking. You'll find one that fits your needs without too much trouble.

          1. I have been to many events where D&D has catered. The food has always been passable,, not very good, not very bad, not even particularly interesting.

            You could claim this is because of what the hosts have chosen as menu items, but after 20+ events, it can't *always* be the hosts.

            From what I understand, they are also very expensive (according to commentary by hosts), so expensive and mediocre, to me, means I would never have them cater an event
