    Daily Grill's high standards live on at the Studio City location! In recent years, the service and food at the soon-to-close Brentwood location have been a great disappointment, but it was just like old times at Studio City this week. Superb service, generous portions, excellent ambience. Our server Terry redeemed our faith in the Daily Grill.

    This restaurant is being dropped from Open Table since they are starting up their own reservations system. Open Table should drop them entirely. Instead of denying me the time I wanted, they should have sent me an email telling me to use the restaurant's reservation system. I was denied a 6pm time and took 5:30. I walked into an empty restaurant at 5:30 and couldn't believe my eyes. The hostess told me that since they are leaving Open Table, that Open Table doesn't release the prime times so as to not duplicate reservations. This still didn't work for me since it made me look like an idiot to my guest that I had said that we couldn't dine at 6pm due to the restaurant being booked.

    Everything we ordered was excellent. I especially loved the trout almandine. Fresh and meaty. Delicious.my husband had chicken pot pie Which is always so special. A little noisy as a large group near us, but ambience is like a NewYork Grill.

    My friend and I have been going to the Daily Grill before attending the various plays at the Ahmanson or Pantages Theaters for years. They always accomodate our need to leave in time for the respective venue. Food is always good and Rick is our favorite server who tends to our needs almost before we know what we need. Food Good - house wine good - service excellent.

    We reserved a week in advance for Mother's Day dinner at 6:30. Arrived on time, and the hostess said "You reserved online. We don't have booths for five people." I was taken aback because I thought they would call or email me with this information prior to our arrival. When I asked where they planned to seat us she pointed to a tiny table at the very front, next to her station. I called my husband over to intervene and when he said we should go to Loteria Grill next door suddenly a (slightly) better table appeared. They made us wait for 20 minutes before seating us when clearing a dirty table should take 5 minutes at the most. Terrible treatment for mediocre food. We won't be returning and I am warning everyone i know about this dump

    Daily Grill is on a downhill slide - the food is worse and the prices are higher than ever. The courses are served too quickly, I guess they want to turn the tables one more time. Our waiter became arrogant when we mentioned the fast service - it will be a while before we return and we usually have dinner there once a week.

    We visit this Daily Grill at least once a month and usually have a very good meal. This time we were 1 out of 2. My friend had the salad/pot pie lunch combo and both were great. I had one of the worst Hamburgers ever. The meat was way overcooked and dry.....the lettuce was wilted....the tomato was mealy and tasteless. Horrible. If it weren't for time restraints, I would have sent it back.

    We seem to go here for special occasions, birthdays, anniversies, etc. Even though there are fancier places. I guess the food is always as expected. My wife gets to scold me for eating too much of the bread, but she's been doing that for 52 years. We find that our friends seem to be picking it also, most likely for the same reasons, it just fits.

    This was the first time we had dinned at the Daily Grill in Studio City, as our party had only experienced the food from the Daily Grill next to Bob Hope. The restaurant at Studio City looked nice and the people were friendly, but that is all that this restaurant had to offer. Let's start with the drinks...two of us had the Arnold Palmer, which tasted like stale water with a hint of lemonade. The appetizers were lacking seasoning and the shrimp tasted like it was old with a weird smell. If you want to have a good dining experience, drive a little longer and dine at the Daily Grill near the Burbank Airport and not this place. This place should reconsider what the main objective of a restaurant is.

    The good -- the good is tasty. But what I really liked was the menu section for plates with 600 calories or less. It can be so difficult to go out to eat and not put on the pounds. The bad -- it's so dark it's hard to read the menu. A man at the next table used the flashlight app on his phone to read the menu. He tilted his phone so that blinding light was always in my eyes. I had to ask the waiter to talk with him about it, and then I got a real dirty look. The bad -- the restaurant is very loud, and it's hard to have a good conversation. if you can, ask for a seat on the patio (if the weather is nice).

    I always liked the Daily Grill -- they have a good menu and nice ambience. I'm glad that they started a Simply 600 menu -- calories fewer than 600. Good choices. I had the smaller hamburger (smaller bun) with tomatoes, onions and lettuce -- really delicious. It comes with fruit rather than french fries. Yum My cousin had a crabcake appetizer which she really liked and we both had the gazpacho which was really good. Not spicy. I would recommend this restaurant.
