Service was lackluster and slow; ingredient (avocado) was missing from Santa Fe wrap; coffee not good. But great location for the theater, nice atmosphere and meatloaf was good.

This was my neighborhood spot during the early 2000s. Good food, good drinks and good service. It could get touristy, but I never minded. The staff was always professional and courteous. I haven't been here in a while, but it's so good to know that some things in this town stay the same.

Rude. Rude. Rude. I recognize that we came to dinner on a busy night, but that doesn’t excuse our server being EXTREMELY rude to us when we followed up on orders after waiting over 30 minutes without seeing her once. Asking about when our food might be done doesn’t warrant “don’t you see how busy we are? Don’t you see that I’m doing the best I can? I mean, you see how busy we are, what do you want me to do?” There are several ways to convey this info without being rude. Not cool. We will never come here again.

We had a group of 9 for lunch on a very busy Saturday during the holiday season. I knew it would be very busy in the city so I made reservations 2 weeks in advanced. The restaurant was very busy as expected but even with our reservations we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. The hostess was not very helpful nor approachable when I inquired as to how much longer we would have to wait. The food was good but not really worth the wait.

Food was served cold, bacon was barely cooked. Waitress surupy sweet, but uncaring to food conditions. Manager apologized and customer changed order to hamburger. No consideration offered on bill for poor food conditions or mediocre waitress (lonnie.)
It will be a long time before we return. There was 6 of us at 11:15 a.m. so no noontime rush involved.

The chicken Parmesan tasted like old chicken that was just heated up with the Italian sauce covered over it, making it hot.

I had not been to the Daily Grill in quite some time and I chose it for convenient pre-theater dining. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good both the food and the service was. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this place! Every December we come to Union Square to commemorate our engagement and shop? We stay at the Handlery Hotel which so well located just a block from Union Square. Have eaten at the Daily Grill several times and have never been disappointed.
Menu is varied but has lots of comfort food items.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 3, 2017

Service and food were subpar at best
Very disapppointed as we have been dining here for 10 years

Service was lackluster and lazy. There were 4 of us and 2 of our dishes cane and were ice cold...no mention of other 2 meals. We flagged down our server and told her our food was cold and she shrugged her shoulder with no apology or no mention of other dishes. Our pasta dish came and it was hot but how we had person with food. Finally 20 minutes later 2 dishes came, 4th dish came with wrong side. Server peeked around but didn’t check back. We had to flag her down again and told her wrong side dish...steamed veggies which took another 15 minutes. Worst service and food as subpar

Asked for a managed and told one was not available. We were late for a show so couldn’t wait. Not sure if we will be back

We had a big group for a special family holiday dinner. The service was incredible and they were very accommodating! Amazing back room that gave us private space with kids - can't say enough about the service, especially little touches like timing on dishes for such a big group. Our waiter was proactive about suggestions to help kids meals too (brought food early, crayons/mats, special cups, extra napkins, etc). Food was good as well. Great location half-block from Union Square.

It was Thanksgiving so they were extra busy but personnel was really nice. I ordered their thanksgiving menu and it was really good, nice arugula kale salad (with cranberries and apple) and turkey breast with gravy and stuffing. The only downer was the dessert, pumpkin pie was not so good but all in all it was great food.

I was at DAILY GRILL enjoying my Thanksgiving meal with a friend. The food was delicious and just what I wanted for this special day!!

I was NOT happy with the choice of Rock N Roll musice...Come on...Maybe soft jazz or standard songs or classical...It was too loud for a while also..I love Creedance Clearwater band but not on Thanksgiving Day!!! I don't think many Restaurant managers, servers, etc....know the value of creating an ambience with really sophisticated music.

Thanks for sending me the survey..I am going to eat lunch at the DAILY GRILL on 12/16 so if I don't like the music I will talk to the server...I paid over $70 for my special Thanksgiving meal and would really appreciate someone taking the time to pick better music to play!! Thanks

We had an issue with the host inviting us to go to the bar for happy hour for half-price drinks while we waited for our table. We had arrived early and pointed out our request for a booth in the back room. Turned out there is no happy hour on Saturdays. Shouldn't the host have known that? Anyway, after our meal, we spoke to the manager, who gave us a gift card for part of our bar tab. We paid cash so we weren't able to take her up on her offer of crediting our card. As for the food, I had my usual filet mignon with blue cheese crust but the menu no longer includes mashed potatoes as a side. You get one side and I opted for vegetables. Same price, less food. I would have preferred a 6 oz. cut and had the mashed potatoes come with the dish. Our server, Armando, was acceptable, not exceptional. We had been going here annually but will likely go elsewhere now.

Traffic on a busy Saturday delayed our arrival but staff was very accommodating. The food was wonderful and absolutely cooked to order. Our server was Elliott and he did absolutely everything right. He asked what our plans were in order to better gauge our timing, he made sure he understood exactly how I wanted my food prepared and then made sure it was right, and he was simply charming and engaged. I will definitely come more often and make this one of my "out-of-towners" stops.

This was a good location to meet up with family in San Francisco that we hadn't seen in a number of years. The service was excellent and the menu selection was broad enough to satisfy everyone's taste. The restaurant was a little louder than I was hoping for, but overall an excellent evening. I'd recommend the Daily Grill and/or dine there again on my next visit to San Francisco.

We should have left as doon as we arrived. Sign read wait to be seated. We waited and waited, bar was not bust nor was the dinning room and we had reservations! We were asked if we eould like a table or a booth. We answered booth, many visable open. No sooner did we answer were told " no booth waiters available.... why ask then? Eventually we were seated at a table for 2....by a person visiting with staff, yes unbelievable! Waiter arrived a few minutes later with menus and asked for drink orders. I ordered a specialty beer and quicly the waiter said and water tp my wife and hurried off...ummm, really! Hereyurned and wife asked for a glass of wine and he hurried off again...we would like an appetizer and we have already decided on dinner order....where did you go? Place is pretty empty, so whats the hurry?? Waiter returned and asked for order... I was in mid sentence when he looks over and shouts hold on one minute to another table? Staff? He looks back at me says dorry and says you want what? Again, this is not a busy restaurant at the moment. I would like the hummus looks at my fairly empty beer and asks if i eoild like another. He came back with my wifes wine finally, but no beer, no hummus. Hummus is eventually briught out by another staff member. Waiter returns and takes our order. Grilled veggie plater for my wife and steak and asparagus for me. No one checks on us during dinner, still haven't received my second beer ordered with appitizer. Dinner is finished and waiter returns with beer and asks how steak was " cause the guy vookingnit usually dries it out" I kid you not! Then asks if we would like a dessert menu...ummm no...check please!!
