    We arrived on time but learned that they never got our reservation because their software is not compatible with OpenTable. Nonetheless, we were seated quickly. Great atmosphere. It has a bright, airy, elegance that, in some nostalgic era, could have been an eatery in Grand Central Station. We were very pleased with the service. The wait staff was attentive, polite & friendly. The food had great potential and we can't help but wonder if maybe we just ordered the wrong stuff. My wife's omelette was good, but over done & rubbery. My French Toast was topped with glazed berries, butter, maple syrup & powdered sugar. It threw my palette for a loop. Over all, not bad. We'll try it again and hope it hits the mark the second time around.

    WE GO WE THE DAILY GRILL VERY OFTEN...HOWEVER SOMETHING HAS CHANGED IN THE MATTER OF DELIVERING OF FOOD WHICH IS EFFECTING THE SERVICE. WE WERE WATCHING AND THERE ARE NO EXPEDITERS FOR DELIVERING THE FOOD WHICH IS A AFFECTING THE QUALITY OF SERVICE. WE ASK ABOUT THAT AND WERE TOLD THAT EXPEDITERS AND BUS SERVICE HAS BEEN STOPPED. IF THAT IS TRUE WHO EVEN MADE THAT RULING SHOULD BE GIVE SECOND THOUGHTS TO THAT WHEN IS EFFECTS THE SERVICE AND SEATING OF GUESTS WHEN THE DINING ROOM IS VERY/VERY BUSY.

    Normally we sit in the bar area where Bruce, Gabe, Mike and Dan take excellent care of us! We dined with guests so we sat in the main dining area. We didn't feel the server was very good. Maybe she had a lot of other tables to wait on. We don't know. However, the food was excellent as always and Gabe said hello to us and made us feel welcome! Thank you, Gabe! We had Sand Dabs, creamed spinach, French fries, meatloaf and blackened Talapia. Everyone loved their meals!

    One of my favorite places because I am never disappointed when I dine at the Daily Grill, and always feel like I am with the "in" crowd. Reminds me of big city special gatherings and definitely the service people make me feel special. (and I love the big cities feel) We were a party of 7 and each person was delighted with their tasty dish. Always go there when there is a special time to be had.

    The Daily Grill is one of my favorite places to eat. I always go there when I am in the neighborhood. My dad and I took my one and two year old girls there for lunch. They sat us in the back overflow area where another family with a toddler was eating. They had white paper covering the table and crayons so the kids could draw and color. As always the service was wonderful. My dad's BLT sandwich was great. Portions are large enough to share too. I had the cold tuna sandwich and it was very dry and bland. I have had that sandwich before many times and it has always been very good. I would recommend The Daily Grill as one of my favorite places to eat.

    I always feel good eating at the Daily Grill. After moving to Palm Desert, which has so many good restaurants, I searched for a place that had a good vibe and decent food (at reasonable prices) so that I could feel free to dine out often. Daily Grill fit the bill. I love that fact that if you sign up for a free "preferred" card you can bring in your own wine and have it served with no corkage free. That is great customer service if you ask me.

    My husband and I went to Daily Grill for Mother's Day- it was a madhouse! However, the staff kept their cool, we were seated promptly for our reservation at a table we liked and our server was incredible. She took our orders accurately, even though it was really noisy in the restaurant, brought us this unbelievably delicious Monkey bread and a luscious drink called a Ginger Mint crush (yum!) and then got us our food quickly. We were very happy and I loved my gift card the restaurant gave us as my mother's day gift!

    Daily Grill really means it ! Open daily, Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner. Whenever your'e ready to eat, they are ready to serve you. Had Sunday Brunch on 5/4 with good friends. From French Toast to Egg's Benedict,and Bagels and Lox. Add Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and Bellini's to the mix and you leave a happy diner. Dinner on Friday 5/9 with cousins from LA area. WOW ! Too many delicious things to mention. Specialties include Chicken Pot Pie and Grandma's Meat Loaf. Always busy so Open Table works best. Try it , You'll love it. !!

    I wanted to treat my son to lunch for his graduation. It was the most wonderful time. We spent two hours over lunch and the food and atmosphere and service were unbelievable, even better then I imagined. Michael tended to us as though we were the only two people there - all of our needs were met and I can't say enough about the experience. My father had taken me for lunch there as a young girl and I never forgot the experience and I can honestly say it was once again a never to forget event. My son was presented a special congratulations dessert that was unexpected and so appreciated. Thank you Polo Lounge for the best time ever!

    Dined on 4/26/2014
    Very disappointing to say the least! Did not recognize our anniversary nor did they accomadate us based on my request! I asked for a romantic booth for 2, and instead got a booth for 4 nest to a window to an outdoor patio that was unused! Ugly view! Across the aisle was the exact booth I was hoping for, and I took it upon myself to see if we could move to it! It was a booth for 2 and had beautiful romantic ambient lighting. I'm glad I was able to salvage the evening! Also no one even made recognition of our 18th anniversary, which I stated on my initial reservation, so along with that and the service, I was not too impressed. That was the 2nd time I have eaten there. Not a place for celebrations! Sorry!

    I get to the area every year or so, and I keep going back to the Daily Grill. The food is delicious, and they have something for everyone. They even have an extensive list of items that contain 600 calories or less. My cousin and I last went there about 16 months before this visit, and the waitress remembered us, including some important details that proved she wasn't just humoring us. She was fun but not intrusive, a remarkable trait.

    This is our regular restaurant! The food and service are always great no matter where you sit. We ate at the bar this time and were served by GABRIEL who took extra special care of us! Even though every seat in the bar was full and everyone was ordering multiple items, Gabe took great care of everyone there! We highly recommend him! We ordered Rose which was crisp and light. It was perfect with our Sand Dabs, creamed spinach and French fries. You can't have a better meal than this!
