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.

    It seems if you have a reservation after 6PM you have a chance of being seated in an adjacent dining room which is really luxurious and quiet, very nice. Great menu, good food.

    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.

    for lunch, the special was $23 but much too large for a lunch dish, would have been better to reduce portion and price accordingly. drinks are very expensive, ended up with a $95.00 bill for 2 senior women!! too expensive all in all for what we had; but must say the seafood portions were very large and very good..

    Our waiter was Elliott. He made the entire evening very special from the getgo. He asked if we were going to a play which we were and explained all specials perfectly. (Some waiters do not). He was extremely pleasant about everything. I believe he was our waiter the last time we were there, and he is definitely a keeper! Oh, by the way, the food was exquisite-- a lobster ravioli to die for and a salmon and asparagus special that was large enough for two dinners. The leftover is still in the frig.

    Awesome food and service. Wifey had Long Island iced tea that gave her a buzz before half finished. Her Filet Mignon was incredible. I had the Moroccan Chicken kabob; the best value in the place, quantity / buck. Came with greens and a wonderful rice (pilaf?) that had hearty brown rice, sliced almonds and something that went crunch. The chicken on the kabob was just spicy enough, with a cool cucumber dipping sauce. Our son had his first fish & chips and devoured it. Water glasses were kept filled. As it was my wife's birthday, our waiter brought a complementary brownie sundae that the 3 of us could barely finish, though it was nigh impossible to put down our spoons, it was so good! All that came to $90 inc. tax. Highly recommended!

    The Daily Grill is always good for food, service and atmosphere. The last time we dined at Daily Grill, I had the trout, which was cooked just right, and so tasty. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine list and found a lovely pairing. The location, just off Union Square and near the theatres, is a perfect one for theatre going or shopping or just browsing in the art galleries. We ask for a booth in the back to have a quieter experience when we are with guests. We've had brunch in the front room as well as dinner and enjoyed that area as well. We'll continue to return!

    I had a hard time answering the question above (What do you recommend this restaurant for?) because none of the boxes resonated with me. What I wanted to answer was 1) Good for people who are in the area already, and 2 ) Good for groups up to six--because large booths are great for that, (can't remember actually if big booths can fit 6 or only 4), and 3) Good for business meals for 2-6 (or 2-4 depending on capacity of large booths) people, because booths are quiet and perfect for "working lunches". I'm a reasonably frequent patron ( ~75% for business, and ~25%for personal). If reasonably priced valet parking were available, my patronage would likely be ~3X current. Then I'd consider/recommend it as "destination worthy".

    Table service for 6 in the bar: terrible. I got the check way before I got my drink, (bottle of beer). They ran out of well vodka so had to pour call, came back and changed the check (!), and still hadn't brought the drinks. Server was so worried about us closing out a tab before we were seated she lectured us, 3 times. That was the bad. By the time I finally got my beer it was time to be seated at the table. We were seated at a circular table which was very nice as we were having a reunion of sorts, and it was more than comfortable. The service was not rushed..Cobb salad was shredded lettuce, plank salmon and asparagus ($ extra charge) was cold. Other dinners were good. Waiter was very good, we were not rushed. I'd try it again.
