Service and food were great!
Kudos to our sever, Nathan, and our Valentine menu!
Excellent all the way around - highly recommended!
After a number of good experiences over many past years, this visit was disappointing on several levels. The hostess kept chatting for 5 minutes with a friend before passing on the word that we were waiting for a booth (there were a couple ready, but for some reason we had to wait for a booth that still needed to be set up). The appetizers we ordered were fine and tasty, but then they were trying to sell us a well done skirt steak as a medium rare filet mignon. The side sauce we had ordered was missing as well. After waiting some time to catch her attention, the waitress actually said "this is how our steaks look like" as argument that she thought she had brought the correct order. We are steak lovers and know our meats, mind you, so back to the kitchen it went. Speaking of sides: one used to get a generous portion of each (be it creamed spinach or mash or veggies); now there was plenty of white left to look at on ones plate; we felt like we were served a lunch portion at dinner cost. To be fair: when the actual re-ordered filet mignon arrived, they had added more generously to the sides as well, so that at least was something. The waitress also never offered us bread or water; we finally asked for the latter with our after-dinner espressos. She also never asked if we wanted another cocktail or glass of wine. Feeling ignored and underserved was sort of the theme of this outing. For what they charged, that was not acceptable, and our tip reflected our disappointment. I hope this was an "off" night for them, but we won't be back to find out.
A broad menu with something for everyone, good service and perfect location to ACT.
We ate at the bar -- trout for my partner and angel hair pasta with shrimp for me. Excellent food. Friendly, efficient female bartender. We were early (4 pm?), so missed the usual crowds.
delicious food, average service and servers were nice
Great food, but our server due to language issues had a hard time understanding my drink order and tried to close us out without coffee and dessert. Warm, cozy atmosphere. LOVED my salmon Casaer Salad and Apple Cobbler. Great spot for lunch. Will definitely be back soon!
Great to grab a good meal before the theatre And at prices that won't having you take out a loan
Our waiter Nathan was awesome. The entire restaurant had a very cool “Old School Chicago” vibe. Will definitely come back again next time in town.
This was the perfect spot for dinner before a play. The food is very good, lots of choices, and fairly priced. We had amazing service from Elliott - once he knew we were going to a play, he made sure everything was ready in a timely way without our feeling rushed. And when the kitchen forgot the garlic butter for the steaks, he went and grabbed it himself. We will be back.
T he food and service at the Daily Grill was exactly what I expected having heard about the restaurant from friends and through Yelp. We were a party of 6 and we all ordered different entrees. They were all good enough that we kept offering each other tastes of what we ordered. To point out a few different dishes that are worth trying, we loved the Chicken Pot Pie (HUGE!!) and the mac and cheese was insane.
The waiter was a little off-putting—seemed to question our dining needs almost every time we had a special request for dietary reasons.
Service was a little slow. Ambiance was nice and it was quiet.
This is a good location for theater goers. My party had tickets for a 2 night performance of Harry Potter. A great menu with lots of variety. Great service & food. Piped in music a little loud, but overall 2 very pleasant evenings.
My perfect kind of restaurant for a nice dinner with a good friend: quiet, upscale with great food and service. My filet mignon was perfect and we enjoyed everything from start to finish. Definitely recommend.
Ate here before seeing Harry Potter with our grandkids. Good exoerience
We were going to see Harry Potter with our grandchildren. Service was friendly and timely. Something for everyone on the menu. Food was very good.
Horrible service and overpriced/mediocre food. Server barely attended to us. Was not worth the money.
Food was very good. Service was fine but a little slow.
Went for Christmas dinner with our family of 5 (3 kids). The food and service were great. It was busy so glad we had a reservation. It wasnt too pricey by our NYC standards. We would definitely return.
The martini was watered down. Not crowded waiter slow
A.O.K. Serves an important need, Right place, right price, right times
Would recommend for casual meals. Ambiance was less fancy than what I wished for a date night, still food and service were nice.
The prix fix bargain is the way to go.
We had a lively lunch between shows at the Curran theater
Loud music piped over speakers, mediocre food, and not much ambience.
We have been here many times, and have always had great service, food and drinks! Our favorite place to go for lunch and drinks in Union Square. We were very disappointed this time, the drinks were subpar and took at least 20 minutes to get. Our waiter was unattentative, and the floor was a mess with leftover food from the previous patrons. May try another place next time if the staff is the same.
The service was slow, and when the food finally arrived after 45 minutes it was mediocre. A Caesar salad consisted of a small handful of lettuce and a sprinkle of chicken for $18. No one checked back with us. It took three tries to get water and bread, and we had to tackle another waiter to pay. Loud, crowded, slow, mediocre and poor value. We have patronized the place for years because it used to be great value, but now we are done.
Good food---- great service-------- lousy music which ads to the noise level
Had a lovely time with my wife, one of our fave diners. Recommend the short rib fries - so yummy! Bring back the onion rings please!
We've eaten here before and were very pleased, about 2 years ago. Always felt the food the worth the (somewhat) high prices. As of Saturday's lunch, I would not recommend this place - not sure if new management or what. We had our rez for 1230 on a Saturday, didn't get seated until about 1:15; they seemed slammed when we arrived (and being an ex-restaurant owner, I know you don't have total control over being slammed). But as we're shown to our table, there were NUMEROUS tables in the same station as our table, so what the heck? The seating hostess checked on us sitting there several times (we were only 3 people sitting at a 4-top booth in the back) and finally took our drink order, and then our lunch order (without writing it down, how DO they do that?). Can't remember her name, she was worth her weight in gold, and needs a raise and/or promotion - Beautiful black girl in her 20s, I'm a married white woman in her late 50s, so I'm not her friend trying to get her a raise! LOL. While waiting for that, our server checked in with and we had to EXPLAIN to him that we were 'handled' and to check with the hostess. My Cobb salad was actually very good, buy my husband and mother in law thought their meals were so-so, not up to the standard we were used to here. Their meals were the Santa Fe Chicken Wrap and the 1/2 Santa Fe Chicken Wrap with side - both said their chicken was dry. On the the way out, the 3-person group sitting across from us had a very similar experience with service and quality, as we talked to them on the way to the front door. Before we got there, my husband had been telling me, "next time we'll stay at the Handlery, there is a 20% discount here in this restaurant when you stay here". After this experience, we will not be going out of our way to stay at the Handlery.
The ambiace and food were good, however, the service was abismal. The server finally came to take our order and then walked away in the middle of the process to help someone else.
The service was good, although a friend had told me that the service is spotty. i was surprised at how bad the food was. i ordered a caesar salad with chicken and dressing on the side. the salad came very, very overdressed. it was as if extra dressing had been added. my friends orders were also incorrect: the full dinner instead of appetizer crab cakes, sauce all over the plate instead of on the side, etc. also, limp fries that looked like they had been sitting around for a while. it was really disappointing.
We absolutely love this place. We have been here many times for dinner as well as breakfast. This year we stayed in the City and went here for dinner then for breakfast the next day. After a day of shopping coming here for dinner and a glass of wine then to a show is the perfect day. Love the ambiance and the staff has always been top notch. This is one of the best restaurants in the city.
Daily Grill is our go to dining place when going to see a show at the Curran Theatre. The food is ALWAYS good with a nice selection of comfort food. Waiter was super non attentive this time around...she must have been having a bad day. Other than that, dinner was nice and on time.
We had never been to the Daily grill and thought we'd give it a try. I even wrote that in my reservation info. Thought that might perk an attentive person up that it was our first time, aka make a good first impression. Had to ask in the bar for the server to clear a table for us to sit. Cleared the table, but didn't look down to see all the trash on the floor. At dinner had to ask several times for water, waitress was nice but seemed overworked and frazzled. Food was good, but annoying that you had to order "add on's" if you wanted a vegetable with dinner. It was good but not fabulous. I'd try again and make my final decision.
Always a good meal, good service and great ambiance at the Daily Grill. A terrific brunch/lunch location if shopping or sight seeing at Union Square.
