Lunch at the Daily Grill
We had a great lunch with limited time. Everything worked like clockwise and we were in and out. The food was great and our Server was outstanding. We had a 1:15 reservation on May 20th and they were ready for us when we arrived.

Retirn to Daily Grill
3 of us came to lunch on Monday, May 20 at noon. One had trout. One had fish and chips. One had chicken taco salad. All three of us felt that the food was first rate and very good. The portions were substantial. The service was very good. We were treated like any other customer. We were tended to with speed and concern. The noise level was energetic, but we overcame that. We have been to this location on previous occasions. We plan to return again. The Daily Grill is a very good restaurant for the area.

The reception desk at this Daily Grill is operated by someone who does a poor job at customer relations. He treats all customers, whether they have reservations or not, as if he's doing them a favor. I am a regular customer and I have brought numerous people to the Daily Grill over the years. Despite that, he is consistently rude and extremely difficult to deal with. This is a good restaurant with an excellent wait staff. But the check-in guy is a very big problem that needs to be fixed. He drives a lot business away and makes everyone feel UNWELCOME.

Family of seven. Lots of different tastes. Almost everyone satisfied. Good menu, good service. For some reason my husband wanted Chicken Parmigian?!?! Not so tasty sauce tasted like it came from s can. My meatloaf , kids burgers grest though.

There is a wide range of selections, something that will make even the pickiest eater happy. The spinach mashed potatoes were excellent and unexpected!

Excellent Service, food not good
The wait staff was very knowledgeable of the specials and recognized that this was a business lunch and did'nt do much interrupting.
Also, The daily special, mixed greens with blackened scallops, tasted OK, however, I expected the scallops to be hot off the grill. They were cold and caused some weekend intestinal distress for me. I took it as a subtle reminder not to order the special in certain restaurants as it is said that the specials are an attempt to get rid of old food.

We at here on a busy week night going to an event at 7pm. We were served promptly and very very well. Great water.
Food was very fresh and tasty. The music is a little loud, Bar noise was a bit loud with Baseball fans. Overall I liked it. Lots of local
business people. Some tourists.

I took my son there for a celebratory lunch and it was perfect. The restaurant was packed but we able to talk easily and were not distracted by anyone around us. Food and service were excellent. We got in and out quickly (he was on his lunch hour) yet we were not rushed eating. Food came quickly which allowed us time to eat and talk.

It was SO OUTSTANDING that I am bringing back a group of 4 friends Friday night!!!

Good Food & Light/healthier options
I love the consistency of the menu at Daily Grill. My only gripe is that it is quite noisy at lunchtime and may be hard to hear over the noise.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice dinner on the town
We were from out of town. We received excellent service from our waitress who was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food was very good and everyone left satisfied and full!

Daily Grill is a great place
Daily Grill is a great place for lunch and the food is good can be a bit noisy but thats because the place is so popular and people are always coming here for lunch so plan on making a reservation if you are coming for lunch or you can walk in but may have to wait for a table.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good dining business casual
We had a nice dinner--a tremendous scallop special, splitting an appetizer of beautifully fried calamari--lightly battered, tender, little oil. The ambience is casual, but more upscale than a diner. The service was good, especially initially. The wine list is short, but interesting.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
First Time Was Great
We went here mainly because they sent me a coupon for my birthday. But the experience actually was very nice. Our waiter, Jonathan, was very friendly and helpful. I chose the Brick Chicken Primavera. The dish was very tasty with lots of good-size chunks of chicken ... even a crispy drumstick ...and the pomodoro sauce was spicy, but not overly so. I would order this again!
Peter dined on the Baja Style Fish and Chips. He said it was very good; the "remoulade" looked and tasted like regular tartar sauce, though. The Peanut Cole Slaw was tasty; unlike the usual slaw, it wasn't sweet, but was tangy.
The cocktails were tasty, too! We'll probably dine here again.

Good food but noisy
Difficult to have a conversation. Too Noisy.
And the tables are too tight for a full-sized man.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were excellent. Would definitely go back. Really a vibrant spot.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service on top of great food
The service was world class and the menus extensive. We all enjoyed our appetizers which were made from fresh local ingredients... The Main courses were perfect in seasoning and quality...
All and all a great experience

Fresh, delicious, fast
5 stars for 2 key reasons: one, we needed to be able to have a somewhat serious business conversation, so we arrived early enough to be selective about our booth, which was an oasis of privacy in a very noisy restaurant. They pulled a waiter off one serving section and assigned him to us, just so we could have that booth. And two, we both ordered from the "under 600 calories" menu -- and both agreed our meals were terrific, fresh and delicious.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for lunch
The Daily Grill is good for a business lunch, or a lunch with friends. The menu is varied, the atmosphere bright, and the noise level is not so loud at lunch that you can't have a reasonable conversation. We had good food and service, without the server hovering over us.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good lunch spot
I have had a number of business lunches there. It is always good.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was excellent, professional and fast. The food was tastey and quick. The complementary home made bread was excellent!

Had never been there before and were very pleasantly surprised by the menu, the quality of the food and the overall restaurant.

Daily Grill Business Lunch
Vibrant crowd with exciting conversations all around. Food was good and well presented. Kitchen expediter was unskilled and wait staff could have been more attentive. Overall a good experience.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am glad we picked the Daily Grill for dinner and will definitely keep it on my list of places to dine when I am in DC. Loved the food, services, and ambience. You can't get much better than that.....priced well too!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best business lunch spot
...in town. Service and food are great and they take into account if you need items quickly.
Recommend it for the next lunch spot that isn't too pricey.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food but pricey
I've never had a bad meal here. The restaurant is a bit loud, but otherwise always a pleasant experience!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistant quality in preparation of my favorite entrees.....great staff!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best One Yet
I haven't been in a while and it was worth the wait. My experience today was the best one yet. I was immediately seated, the food came fast and was smoking hot. The chicken was so tender and juicy, no knife was needed. I was too satisfied to get dessert but will go back just for that.
9/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
As if my wonderful experience wasn't enough two days prior, I just had to go back and see if I get the same treatment. I did. The food is always a treat and the servers are great.
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
excellent customer service
The service was much better than my first experience here, unfortunately I chose a dish that takes longer than everything else to prepare (chicken pot pie). My coworkers food came out well before mine and I guess they tried to rush mine along because it wasn't done when they brought it to me but they whisked it away as soon as I told the waiter. 10+ minute later my delicious goodness was brought back (in a to-go container because the waiter read my mind). It was overall a great experience. I'm giving the food 4 stars because the pot pie crust wasn't done initially bit I'm sure if you don't go on your hour lunch break everything will go smoothly.

As always, large portions,
As always, large portions, reliable food, and good service. I had the gazpacho and the endive/candied walnut salad (no need for entrée) and was not disappointed.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have been to the Daily Grille many times (in Bethesda and DC), and while always very good, this visit was the best ever. Our waiter was outstanding--friendly, helpful and responsive---and the food was simply delicious. I highly recommend the DC location and will definitely be back soon.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten-Free Options Are Great
Daily Grill at 18th and M Sts NW has an excellent gluten-free menu, and the food is superb, but most importantly the staff understands and practices safe handling, including special delivery to the table. The selection, the taste, and the special handling keep me coming back.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
P - cubed
P3 (P cubed) stands for Pot Pie PLEASE!! The chicken pot pie is unlike any kind of pot pie your mother used to make. It was the BEST I have had in YEARS!! Actually the last pot pie that I ate that was purchased was back in during the frozen tv dinner days (Swanson) which I hated so I started making my own - which I haven't done in years - and now I will NEVER do again - because when I want one - I am coming to YOU GUYS!!!! DE-LISH!!!!!!

Good Lunch Spot
Very efficient during the lunch rush. Good food. Good service.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice atmosphere, good food, pricey
We enjoyed the ambiance and location of this restaurant and liked the large menu with a variety of options. The food was very good, but also very pricey. Would recommend for a special occasion!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Variety
The Daily Grill is a great place to go for lunch with a group of colleagues and/or friends who have varying tastes and dietary restrictions. There is something on their menu for EVERYONE! Service is attentive and professional, and the food is always excellent. Loved my Manhattan Clam Chowder :-).

Lunch with Staff
A group of co-workers gathered and enjoyed a nice lunch together. The food and drinks were good and we were able to have a lively discussion in this atmosphere.

Awesome restaurant Manager
The Daily Grill has been a favorite for years; the food is always good, the staff is great and on Friday night the Restaurant Manager was on his game. We had four adults and two kids; ages 7 and 4, so we wanted a seat as far from the bar and the noise as possible. After being seated, we were still struggling to hear each other talk; we had asked the host to see if he could get the music lowered in the restaurant section, but nothing seemed to happen. I don't enjoy going to dinner if you have to shout at each other over the table. Within minutes of asking the Restaurant manager to lower the music volume, our request was granted. We had a peaceful dining experience.

nice selection of food and
nice selection of food and desserts., bar section has televisions and is section off..
service is always good. Good for Groups-but call ahead

Gluten Free Glory
Daily Grill continues to make it easy and safe for me to dine there. As a serious Celiac, I relish the care and attention they provide to safe handling and control of ingredients. In addition, the food tastes great!
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Lunch
Food, service and ambience-always excellent. The service at this restaurant is only top notch, as well as the food. This is a great place for business lunch at a reasonable price.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Highly recommended, with caveats
Food is great, although portions are too huge. And ambience is lively and fun, but WAY too noisy.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently good food & service
The Daily Grill has terrific food and a wonderful waitstaff. It's my go-to place for business lunches. Their lengthy list of interesting selections for 600 calories or less is something that sets this restaurant apart from the competition. It doesn't feel like a "diet" menu, yet I can--and often do--choose to eat healthy. (The California chicken burger with grilled asparagus is a frequent choice.) When I want to indulge, I choose a crab cake with the DG's excellent french fries. This place has the best crab cakes in downtown D.C., bar none.

We booked a table for four
We booked a table for four because we had tickets to a concert at Nat Geo nearby. The food was delicious, especially the chicken potpie, and the service was outstanding. We enjoyed it so much, we came back after the concert for a drink and dessert! We would definitely come back again.
