Daily Grill - Irvine
Great value, meal for restaurant week.............
Our experience was limited to inquiring of our server (who ignored us for over five minutes after being seated) about the Wednesday night pork chop special promoted on a sign outside the entrance. He knew nothing about it. He then came back and said it wasn’t offered. He gave us the Restaurant Week menu instead. We walked out. The hostess merely said she was sorry. We’ll never go back to Daily Grill.
Decent food and service, but nothing special. Server failed to inform us of the Wednesday special (blackberry pork chop at reduced price). Chicken pot pie is huge and very good.
This is the second time I’ve dined at this location and both times I’ve been disappointed. I told the server no mushrooms on my salmon, but it arrived with mushroom all over the plate. My husband’s steak was tough and had to be sent back. The server tried to correct the issues, but it was a very disappointing anniversary dinner.
The first waiter messed-up and didn't enter the order for appetizers so it was quite late. He kept complaining about vertigo problem. Vegi order on main meal was wrong. After a complaint, the second waiter did a fine job.
The service and food were disappointing.
Our food server Sebastian was excellent, so much so that it made an unknown experience into a great experience. We look forward to going back.
Always consistent food with wonderful service, which is what brings us back.
Excellent location and great food. Perfect for a business lunch in the Irvine area.
I've dined at Daily Grill many times. The Shrimp listed on the appetizer section is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Very tasty! Service was very good. It would have been outstanding if we had silverware when the bread and appetizer was served. Instead, we had to request flatware.
Always great food, freshly prepared and cooked perfectly. Whoever mans the grill at the Irvine location is a master. The salmon is perfect, vegetables are crisp and steads are great. Best baked potatoes and sour dough bread around.
Kayla was very attentive.
Outstanding service! Our waitress was fantast
We love the food and the restaurant always has our table ready. Beau is the best server ever!
We had a small booth at the end near kitchen. Too noisey. For 2 sandwiches it was $36 which was pricey.
First time there. Very good food and service
Very good everything (good, service and ambiance) except almost $200 for 3 people with a total of 3 drinks, 3 entrees (steak, pasta, short rib), 2 house salads, 1 shared dessert, and tip.
Fine service, as always. Good, plentiful meal, as always.
Our server was wonderful. My chicken was overcooked and they replaced it with a delicious New perfectly cooked piece and then comped us for the meal.
Cheeseburger was spectacular. The pork chop is to die for!
Christmas Eve dinner with my Mom & Sister.
Sandabs (coating was not cooked all the way through) were fair. Food is usually delicious. Potato, veggies & bread were delicious. Service was great.
Glad they were open
Great food and great service!
I love their fresh made chicken pot pie and now their butternut squash soup! Excellent service as well!
Perfect location and restaurant. Food was excellent and service was outstanding.
Terrific as always! Flat iron steak salad is great
It was my guest's first time dining at Daily Grill. It was so perfect that she commented she wanted to return the next day! So did I! The entrees, drinks, and dessert were delicious. The service was hospitable, attentive, and unobtrusive.
Beau our server was excellent and food was great!!
Our waiter, Beau, was outstanding and made our dinner extra fun.
Overall, our dinner met our expectations. One thing that is always disappointing at this restaurant is that the dessert menu is very limited and unimaginative compared to the other courses offered.
Great server and great food. This place is crowded, and reservations are a must at lunch
Very slow progress from kitchen. Lunch was served just over 45 minutes from ordering. Not good during a business lunch.
My reservation was at noon, so the restaurant was busy. The 1st table was unacceptable, and the hostess made a "face" when I asked if we could have a different table - she acquiesced, but made a "face." I did not expect that reaction.
Our server did not seem like she was covering another server's tables, but everything had to asked for...more ice tea, where's our entrees, can I have the check? From being seated to signing the check was 1 hour, 40 minutes...for a business lunch???
I was very disappointed with my entree and unfortunately my guest ordered the same item. We both ordered the sand dabs and they were mushy and not very tasty. The waiter gave us a free dessert, which was very nice, but I was embarrassed that I invited someone to dinner, and the entree was awful.
Daily Grill is always a great place to meet friends and business associates, however, this time our seating was questionable... we were seated in a small booth by the kitchen.
We have been eating here for years. The food is delicious. Even the bread is good. The trout with butter sauce is fabulous. As are the chop steak and skirt steak. Full of flavor. And you get two sides. They are all delicious. Great creamy cole slaw. No corkage either. That’s wonderful.
Noisier than ever and the Sand Dabs my friend and I always order was not as good as it usually was in past years. Over breaded and not as crisp.
We will likely be looking for another place to try in the area. My friend and I have consistently met at this Daily Grill for probably 5 years, so we find this especially disappointing that they have not only raised their prices, increased the noise level noticeably, but the quality of the food seems to have declined.
My friend and I both ordered a Cobb salad which is what we normally order. It was very disappointing. My friend’s salad looked like it had no dressing at all, & mine looked very wet but had no taste. It was as if they washed the lettuce and didn’t let it drain and basically I had water for dressing. We did ask for another cup of dressing that which helped a little bit but basically the Cesar salad dressing had no flavor.
On a positive note, our server brought my friend a birthday treat, which was very good!
Good for meeting with clients for lunch! Good variety of food to choose from.
I had not been to the Daily Grill in some time but this experience was excellent. The chef even asked us to try a special appetizer she was working on. Great food and service, and very clean.
Always great comfort food!
Good service. Good food. Easy for a quick lunch.
