Dinner at Chez Daniel is perfect for any occasion. Fine dining at a wonderful value. The cozy location provides two seatings per night with the chef and waiter to cater to your every need. The later seating is like dining on a cruise ship where the table is yours for the entire evening. The food and service are unparalleled! The entrée price (less than $30) includes soup, salad, and dessert. I had the Beef Tenderloin topped with Gorgonzola and a Red Wine Reduction Sauce, and my husband had the Scampi & Scallops with a White Wine Lobster Cream Sauce. (Excellent choices!) We both started with French Onion Soup and Salad, and finished the night with Crème Brulee and Decadent Chocolate Cake. Together with friends, we enjoyed the French Champagne and Cabernet Sauvignon recommended by our server for less than the Napa selections we had initially chosen. A great evening!
Just be sure to note there is a dress code (jackets required for men), and they accept cash only. Well worth it!

Plan on a minimum of two hours, a bottle of wine and lots of conversation. The service is excellent but at a very slow pace. One server [Alien], one chef [Daniel] for the 20+ seating. So set down, relax and enjoy. Truly for special occasions or an important business discussion. A chance to unwind. The price of entrees is $30 and under which includes soup, salad and dessert of their choice. So great food [French portions] at a great price and ambiance.

Chez Daniel is a hidden gem tucked away in an aging mini strip mall across the street from the Folsom Police Dept.

It's a small 9 table restaurant which offers Prix Fixe meals that excel in taste and even more so in value. Reservations are a must - a single waiter is the lone server, so reservations are staggered to insure the service is always excellent. Parties of 4 max, so not good for groups. A nice, reasonably priced wine list, though some vintages have changed so you might want to inquire if this is important to you.

Meals range from $25 to $30 and include soup and salad, entree with vegetables and starch, plus dessert. You simply can't find better food in Folsom at any price.

There is a dress code - jeans are not considered appropriate.

This small restaurant is big in taste, service and atmosphere. The food is fresh, tastes fabulous, and portions are perfect size. The service is impeccable. Music, mood lighting and a strict dress code ad to the ambiance.

Had dinner at Chez Daniel last month with friends. The onion soup was amazing, the salad was great and perfectly dressed and the shrimp and scallop entrée was perfect. The service was, as always, impeccable. It was a wonderful evening!
