About Daily Grill - Santa Monica
The Daily Grill in Santa Monica is a great place to gather for lunch or dinner. The appetizers are always cooked fresh and include the famous cutting board. This is a special chef�s selection of meats that have been cured, along with a sampling of artisan cheese. Also popular at Daily Grill is the seared rare ahi tuna.
The main course consists of a range of items with chicken, seafood or beef as the primary staple. The parmesan herb crusted chicken is always popular, as is the New York strip steak grilled to order. Daily Grill also has a full bar, making it a great place to gather for those after work cocktails.

Daily Grill - Santa Monica Ratings and Reviews
We had fish and chips and shepherd’s pie. The pie was hot and it was pretty good. However, The fish and chips seemed distinctly old, like it had been warmed over from lunch. It was cold and so I returned it and it was clear the fries were returned to the fryer and sent back out, so they were hot and soggy. The dish comes with a side of peanut Cole slaw, which was horrible. It seem as though it was yesterday’s salad that they had put in refrigerator overnight (with the dressing on it).
The service was very nice but was slow.
Too bad, Daily Grill used to be really good. Won’t go back.
We were seated immediately upon arriving.
Our server arrived quickly and took our beverage orders.
Bread and beverages arrived quickly.
We ordered our entrees and they arrived within
ample time. Our food was served fresh and hot.
We enjoyed our food and the ambiance was
comfortable and relaxing.
portions shrunk prices up and parking after 3 hrs week nights pricey..Over last yr this location : cut portions, eliminated off menu long time favorites, raised prices, cut back by eliminating hostesses and busboys and some nights servers. Corporation should at the very least considering prices comp parking for however long dining during week nights. Wed spend more of we could park free longer
I usually order the delicious skirt steak and shoestring fries and did so this time as well. The steak was great cooked just how I ordered it but the fries were look warm and not crispy. I ate it anyway but mentiioned it to our server who suggested he get me a new order of fries; he did but when they came, they were the same. Don't know what happened but can tell they were not made fresh out of the fryer. Great cocktails!
We've been to other Daily Grill locations and were happy to eat at the one in Santa Monica, but unfortunately we came on a night where their staffing was not enough to meet the demand. Our waitress did her best but everything from ordering, drinks, dishes, refills, and bill each came out about 10 minutes too late. Food was good, and some excellent. The blue cheese filet mignon was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately due to the delays the side dishes and Mahi Mahi were cold. This dinner was in celebration of my daughter's dance recital performance, so it was a disappointing experience.
Service by hostess was so so ... not very friendly... they always ask for reservations... it wasn't even busy but they made us sit at bar... they said all the tables were all ready reserved so I opened up this handy app... booked reservation and 10 minutes later we were seated... by the time we finished our meal all the so called reserved seats were still empty.... things that make you go mmmmmm
The food and service here are always consistent.
Servers are attentive.
Food is served fresh and hot.
On this occasion it was very crowded and noisy
with customers. We were seated immediately and
I would recommend this restaurant for dinner or
lunch any day of the week.
Haven't been to a Daily Grill in many years. Last time was @ the one in Studio City (of which I wasn't a big fan). What a delightful surprise to find the one in Santa Monica - spacious, modern, exceptional food, great service. My guest came from "beautiful" downtown Burbank & we all really enjoyed lunch. Will surely be going back.
It was a "girls night out" and an opportunity to get caught up. There was a chance to try a new
restaurant - I previously enjoyed The Grill on Hollywood/Vine. The Daily Grill was great from the wait staff to the food. Definitely plan to return for another really great meal.
Had an enjoyable meal with excellent service on Saturday night. The food was superb with salmon and chicken/ribs combination coming out hot with great flavor. Our server was enthusiastic and friendly with a great attitude. This is one of our "go-to" places for a reliable meal that is a step above the ordinary.
It was extremely noisy when we entered. The bar area was completely
full and energetic.
We were seated immediately at a booth near the window.
We waited more than ten minutes for a server to arrive.
When he arrived, we asked about the Monday fried chicken
special and that we wanted to order it. He returned and
told us they were out of fried chicken. It was before 7PM.
We were surprised and very disappointed.
We ordered other things but were not enthusiastic about
any of it. We may try another Monday for the special.
I was seated immediately and my server approached quickly.
When my guest arrived the server came and took her drink order.
We ordered our meals and they were brought in a timely manner.
The food was good, fresh and tasty. Our server checked back
to see if we needed anything more.
When she learned that we were celebrating a birthday,
she said she would bring us something
sweet. She delivered a little brownie with a scoop of ice cream and
wished me a "happy birthday". She was very nice and friendly.
We enjoyed our lunch completely.
Two couples went. Our friends ordered the short ribs. they found them tough and fatty. They complained to the waitress. She offered to get them something else. They declined as they didn't want to wait while we ate. I would have sent them back.
No financial compensation was offered and the manager never made an appearance. Shame on them.
The negative part was it took 40 minutes to get our food and one of the three dishes had cold rice because of this. And the steak was overcooked because of this on the second dish. Two problems were corrected after a while and we were given free desserts but it was also a birthday celebration for my lady friend. Food however was excellent!
The service was a friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. The food was tasty and well-priced. Try the chicken pot pie if they run out of meatloaf (limited daily offering), get a lemonade and don't forget the bread and butter to start the meal off right.
