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.

    The six of us all had wonderful meals and notable service. Our waitress (whose name excapes me regrettably) was wonderful-always there with Diet Coke refills without being asked and always attentive without being intrusive-a hard thing to accomplish- and always with a ready smile and an eagerness to please-for sure!! We will all be back-two "newies" and the rest "returnies" as well. Thanks for always being consistent and welcoming and for all the available round tables that help to have easy conversation and always add to the ambiance. All in all this restaurant is a highly recommendable place to be! Donna & Phil Wolkstein

    Nice meal. The somewhat basic fare was a little overpriced. Service started out great than went to average half way through the meal. Drinks from bar stood out more than the food. A bit more detail in the kitchen on the plating side might justify the price. Overall food was good just not extra special.

    Altough our waitress was very nice and friendly, she forgot about us. We were out of drinks, and some of us were STILL EATING when they came to collect some of the plates, at occasion even brushing sleeves over the food that was still being eaten. I find that very rude. They should wait until everyone is finished.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 5/24/2008
    I took my father there for his 78 birthday. We enjoyed the food and the ambiance as it allowed us to carry a nice conversation. There were just two things I wanted to bring up. One, we didn't receive any bread and butter at our table. I looked around and didn't see anyone else with bread so I thought we were not supposed to have any...but then noticed otherwise when we were about to leave. Second would be because our family is sensitive to MSG, the three of us had similar side effects after dinner...possibly reaction to seasonings?!? Other than, most importantly was that my Dad had a great time. Thank you.

    Daily Grill is one of our favorite "pre-theatre" dining spots. They are very aware of time contraints and get you in and out, without feeling rushed, in plenty of time. They are also very accomodating about splitting entrees, generally done in the kitchen, and nicely presented at the table. They also currently have a great pre-fix three course menu. There is nothing "chain-like" about this location. Walking distance to Curran and ACT as well as Union Square.

    The space is classic old San Francisco -- dark wood booths, leather seats, white tablecloths. The food is what you'd expect from a high-overhead restaurant in the busiest theater-shopping area of the city: not particularly good. Still, if you're rushed for a play and want that old vibe...

    Great place to meet and talk. Very good food, a sophisticated atmosphere, reminds me of some great old New York restaurants, classy but not pretentious. Though we were there on Mother's day we got some business done and had a great conversation, but never felt rushed (and Mother's day is a rough day in the restaurant business).

    Good place to go in the theater district. It was quite cold and the waitress said she wasn't sure if they could do anything, never got back to us. Signature Cobb which is typically great had way too much bacon and dressing even though light was requested. Halibut specvial seemed to have a smaller portion than usual and not inexpensive at $26.00. Dissappointing, but I would go again as I have had better experiences there in the past.

    We have enjoyed this restaurant many times, but on Saturday things were "off". The server was forgetful, we had to keep asking for items, and the buser crashed plates around creating more noise than was necessary. The food was not a disappointment, great menu, generous portions and cooked well. We will return.

    I ordered the crab cakes which were pasty, very bland and without a nice crust. They were not especially hot as if they had sat for awhile before serving. The string fires were pretty good, though not as hot has they should be and the coleslaw was ok. My husband had the blackened chicken ceaser which was better, with nice spicy pieces over fresh lettuce. The service was good and our waiter pleasant. We might go back as it is convenient to the theater and our waiter asked if we had a curtain to make.

    While I am a very avid fan of The Daily Grill chain, after a very dismissive waiter, the manager (via a telephonic conversation) made remarkable headway. Because of her, I will happily return to this particular location, just requesting not to sit in 'Robert's' station. Otherwise, I wish them all well. Paul Doremus

Wait staff attentive and food arrived quickly and all together, no waiting for others to be served before eating. Food was good and plenty of it. The only negative was my own fault. I choose a chair that was to the aisle. Being a bit heavy was brushed by several times. Should have chosen better and let one of the young girls sit there. Overall a good time was had by all.
