Got booth as requested. Service excellent!! Havent had this server before but he was on top of it. Prices have gone UP, since I last ordered trout, $18, to $23, now $25. Big piece of fish though, took 1/2 home but still too expensive.

We love the Daily Grill and make it a point to visit every single time we're in the area. My only complaint is that when we visit during the hotter months the restaurant is unpleasantly warm. The wait staff is obviously suffering so I know it's just not a personal preference. The AC needs to be adjusted for the temperature outside. Can't complain about the food, staff or anything else. On the last visit, I had the pork chop with blackberry sauce and I felt the meat was a little overbrined. Better that though than dry :-)

Louis took excellent care of us during our most recent lunch at Daily Grill in Palm Desert. We like to sit in the bar area for great service! We had the Sand Dabs with cole slaw and steamed carrots - delicious!

There were 5 of us celebrating 2 birthdays. We had sand dabs, liver and onions and pork chops. All were prepared perfectly and were delicious. Our service was terrific, which made it especially enjoyable.

Decent food and service was good, probably wouldn’t rate either as exceptional. Had a hard time finding someone to refill my water glass. Little things like that do make a difference. My wife had Salmon which was little over cooked and dry. I had fish & chips which were fine.
I will come back.

I am a full time resident of Palm Desert and eat out frequently, including the Daily Grill. Recently, we went there and had the worst server in the world. We waited 55 minutes for our dinner, and he forgot to bring things to the table which we asked for. Then, we waited, with dirty dishes on our table for 40 minutes to get our check. I went to see a manager and let her know that for educational purposes, she needed to work with this server and teach him the art of waiting a table, commensurate with the reputation this restaurant has developed. I gave her specifics and she said she would take care of it. In 10 minutes the server came over (awkward moment) and said sarcastically that he was sorry he did not meet our expectations and wanted to know if there was anything he could do, since his manager just talked to him. I told him to get us our tab, so we could leave. By the way we started to clear our own table and another waitress helped out. One bad experience does not erase years of going someplace, but for the price we paid for our dinners, I will think twice about going there again.

We frequently return to Daily Grill for their Nightly Specials And fabulous personal service.The Manager Miranda remembers our family from when she was a server it makes us feel special. Tonight Eric was our server very attentive and on top of our table. My father only lives in the desert 4mos out of the year, and during that time he chooses to eat here 2x a week because of your great staff, it started with Miranda as our server

We eat here almost ever my Saturday and decided to go today even though it was a holiday.

All the beverages came with hardly any ice. The waitress noticed immediately and about ten minutes later brought all new beverages but didn’t remove the others. So the table was packed with 12 glasses for four people.

The starters came after a significant wait. Then predictably the entrees came before anyone had finished their starters.

The food was terrible today. I had the same salad I always get, Crab Louis, and the crab was frozen on half the salad. The romaine was all tops and not crunchy. The tomatoes were squishy.

My husbands burger was greasy.

My daughter had surf and turf tacos and she fell ill within 15 minutes of eating and we had to leave the restaurant.

Today’s experience makes us considering changing our most favorite lunch spot.

Come here frequently. When in town one of my go to's. Food is good overall. Service was excellent. My only gripe was we had a party of 5 and had a table. Location was in an area that was busy, so the noise level was higher. Plus it's in a walkway area, would of preferred a less trafficked area.

I dine at the Daily Grill in Palm Desert weekly, sometimes twice a week. I always have a wonderful meal with great service. Their sourdough bread is to die for, best in the valley.

As usual, dinner at the Daily Grill was wonderful. The prime rib is remarkable - so far, the best in the desert including the steakhouses. Service was accommodating, professional and friendly. Menu is varied. A bargain considering the quality and quantity of the food. Try to save room for dessert!

Yes of course, it;s our favorite place. My husband and I love "Happy Hour " too
We live here full time and come when we can, as we are both retired but active, it makes our summers go when we have dinner to look forward to.
Thank you

We had reservations and should have booked a booth. We were at the first table of four in the center between the double and quad booths. It noise level was so outrageous that I was in some discomfort. This was our first dinner with this other couple and I missed almost everything he said. If I can't get a booth, I won't dine there. We are members and come ofter with small and large groups.

Been coming to the Daily Grill in Palm Desert 2-3 times per year when we are vacationing. Service this trip was seriously lacking. Also they didnt have a table for us when we arrived and were trying to squeeze 6 of us into a 4 person table at which we complained and were placed in the banquet room and were ignored most of the time we were there. May be looking for another spot to take the family.
