A word from Daily Grill - San Francisco
Daily Grill is located on Geary, near Powell, only a half-block from Union Square and in the center of San Francisco’s theatre district. Comfortable and clubby with booths and high ceilings, Daily Grill is a great place to take a break from the bustle of Union Square. The large menu and comfortable decor makes the Daily Grill a favorite stop before or after the theatre. Daily Grill is an updated version of the San Francisco grills of the past, providing generous portions of classic American dishes, such as steaks, chops, chicken pot pie, and meat loaf...a neat, friendly place where one can get crab cakes or a burger, cobb salad or a ribeye along with martinis, single malts, microbrews and a good bottle of wine. The ambience is lively and clubby, with comfortable booths, dark woods and high ceilings. Continued

  • "We come to S.F. every couple of months to see Broadway plays. We also stay at the Handlery Hotel, adjacent to the Daily Grill. We eat all our meals there. The bar is friendly, the food is good as well as the service. Affordable prices. Comfortable setting."

  • "We had a nice lunch at the Daily Grill - good service, food was cooked to order and tasty. We came back a few days later for breakfast and were underwhelmed - service had to be flagged down for coffee refills and the check, my omelette came with extras I didn't order (and I was charged for them after pointing it out - rather than waste time arguing we took it out of the tip) and was greasy. DH's pancakes were fine, but nothing special. Part of the service problem was that the restaurant is where some hotel guests redeem vouchers, and it was full in the main area. Our waitress just had an attitude, which was in marked contrast to our excellent lunch waiter's cheerful demeanor and efficient service."

  • "Upon checking in, the hostess said I didn't have a reservation. I told her I booked on open table and she informed me that they are no longer using this site for reservations. Our reservation was honored but I was not impressed with how the hostess handled the situation. The service was a little slow but the food was good."

  • "While we have eaten at The Daily Grill many times, this was the first for breakfast. Eggs benedict sauce was sparse and the potatoes cooked but not browned. Hubby's omelet was bland. Lunch and dinner better bets. Fun bar, great bartender with World Cup soccer on TV's. Will return but not for breakfast."

  • "Great menu. Something for everyone. Wait staff asks if you're going to theater so as to assure prompt food delivery, etc."

  • "Terrific lunch with outstanding friendly service. Don't let the outside appearance fool you...good food and they even have a lite menu!"

  • "A great meal, start to finish! They graciously accommodated an eleventh hour request to change the reservation time, and seated us on arrival. Setting was comfortable, with photos of notables past. Service was professional and very thoughtful. Menu is huge and varied. Salads were fresh and well-dressed. The chicken pot pie lived up to the hype--rich, creamy sauce, perfect, flaky crust, and tons of chicken. Would definitely recommend, and look forward to trying their venues in other cities."

  • "One block from ACT, The Daily Grill has a full bar, nice and competent wait staff, generous portions of tasty food and a wide range of size and cuisine options, decent coffee, and a couple of homemade desserts with in-season fruit."

  • "The Daily Grill is conveniently located near the Geary Theater, and I enjoy going there after a matinee. The service is fast and efficient. I had one of their 600 calorie or less meals, with grilled salmon and asparagus. The salmon was pretty good, but the asparagus was much too tough. The free bread was very good. The price at $25 seemed a bit high, but not unreasonable for downtown SF."

  • "Mediocre food at ok prices. I would not go back except maybe for lunch. It had the atmosphere of a chain."

  • "The restaurant ALWAYS has outstanding food, service and atmosphere."

  • "The majority of the seating are booths for 2-4 people. In my opinion, this is great if I had an intimate party. Unfortunately, our party wasn't large enough to accommodate a private room, and yet too large for a booth...we had a party of 5. Our table was at a turn in the restaurant between 2 walkways and another walkway coming from the kitchen door. Despite the constant traffic around us, we enjoyed our company. Overall, the food was good as expected. Our waiter, Andre was terrific. Our only recommendation is to have him check with his servers, to assure that they are taking care of us. We frequently had to look and ask for them bread + to refill our drinks (water, coffee, etc.)."

  • "I booked a table for 10 at Daily Grill for my cousin's bachelorette party. We were staying at the Grand Hyatt and had a VIP booth at Ruby Skye. The Daily Grill was in a perfect location! Everything was within a 10 minute walk . From the front the restaurant does not look like much, and the hostess table is set a little far back. Coming into the restaurant I wasn't sure what to expect, but it is very elegant! They put us in a private room near the wine cellar in the back. Our server was OUTSTANDING! Great explanations and confidence. We all ordered different items on the menu and everything was delicious. I had never been to a Daily Grill before, but I will definitely be back!"

  • "Our dining experience was very disappointing. We told the restaurant that we were celebrating a special evening and it turned out "not very special." Upon arrival, There was no one at the host stand when we arrived and it took a while for someone to greet us (and others who gathered while we were waiting). Once seated we waited a long time for a server. Our server was not attentive, engaging or friendly which made for a bad dining experience. We never had a manger or anyone in charge stop by our table to ask how we were doing. Other than the host who sat us, no one acknowledged our special occasion. We will not be going back. There are too many good restaurants in union square. We made a bad choice this evening. Don't make the same!"

  • "Have eaten here before with good luck - although the bar is always rather slow. This time our waiter had us wait an extra ordinarily long time to acknowledge us - then asked if we were ready to order - slow and frustrating - food was fine but service was ridiculous "

  • "As many restaurants as i have tried close to the theatres, Daily Grill is the most reliable and best place to go. The food is always good. The service is excellent. The restaurant is well maintained and always busy enough to be fun."

  • "Typically excellent service. Tried a different dish (Ahi wrap) than what I usually order due to the time of day. 3 pm late lunch. Restaurant was not crowded except at the bar where the Giants game was on. Never disappointed here. Great selection for my vegetarian wife means we both eat here and leave w/smiles. Very reasonably priced and a great break from the crowded chain restaurants around the area."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Daily Grill again provided us with a wonderful pre-theatre dining experience. The wait staff is very attentive, making sure that we have enough time to enjoy our meal without being rushed but enough time to get to the theatre on time. There are almost too many choices on the menu that sound good. I selected one of the items from the specials menu (salmon with angel hair pasta) which was wonderful and a more-than-generous portion. My friend had a chicken dish off the regular menu, and they gladly substituted angel hair pasta for the potatoes it was supposed to come with. We shared a dessert (key lime pie), again, a very generous portion and delicious. We arrived early, but the noise level increased with time. Try this place soon!"

  • "New York style steak house ambiance. Best Manhattan style clam chowder I have ever tasted. Service and food quality exceptional. Price to value was way above par. All in all a great dining experience. "

  • "We took seven family members--including grandchildren--here just before Christmas 2013, (after a Nutcracker Ballet performance). We waited only a few minutes for our table, (reserved online days in advance), and even though it was extremely busy, the waitress and other employees were very patient and went out of their way to cater to the grandchildren, which was appreciated. The food and wine were excellent, and reasonably priced. Very enjoyable experience. "

  • "Online, before going, we joined their Preferred Club (no charge.) One of the benefits is free corkage - a big plus for us since we eat out nightly. Their bar was busy. Yummy dinner with outstanding service. The Daily Grill has a broad menu. This time we weren't disappointed with the artichoke hearts (a special of the day), grilled vegetables with balsamic glaze and Tuscan brick chicken. Enjoy!"

  • "Well, now, how many ways can I say it. Daily Grill in San Francisco has always delivered the goods. Friendly folks, fantastic food and excellent ambiance. Who could ask for more."

  • "We love the food at Daily Grill in spite of it being a chain. The skirt steak is one of the best. Try the grilled artichoke when it's in season (spring & summer). And the Daily Grill salad is always delicious. We have a favorite waiter who is the best we've ever had anywhere. Kudos to DG for hiring him, training him and keeping him!"

  • "This place was great. Came here the first night of our honeymoon. It was perfect. A nice restaurant but not overbearing. The pork chop and the skirt steak were fantastic! It's a solid place for a meal; not super unique but a good place to eat and unwind. "

  • "I used to be able to count on the excellence of the chicken pot pie at the Daily Grill. No more. The last two times I've eaten here, it was substandard. Crust is still OK, but the filling is gooier, with less chicken flavor and fewer vegetables."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "This was recommended by a friend on our recent visit to San Fran but we were very disappointed. The service was very slow and when I finally got my food it was not what I ordered. Then our waiter showed up a little later with the correct meal but didn't apologize and never checked back again until we were through and had our plates stacked up and credit card out. Very disappointing for the last night of our visit. "

  • "The Daily Grill is a family favorite! We have been there many times, and we always go there before seeing a show at either the Curran or A.C.T. The food is great, the service is top notch, and all staff are friendly and helpful. The wine list is good and the cocktails never disappoint! The ambiance is calm and relaxed, with the quiet chatter of other diners in the background. The menu offers a great hamburger and the Tuscan Brick Chicken is excellent!"

  • "The rib eye special was so touted by the waiter that one in my party went for it. It was so tough he couldn't begin to finish it. If we hadn't had theater plans he would have sent it back. They took 1/2 off but should have taken the whole thing off. Disappointing."
