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 in Santa Monica is a nice place for a good meal. They have different on different nights. We went for the Friday nite Prime Rib dinners. The portion size of the Prime Rib was quite nice, although a little overcooked for Medium Rare. The accompanying potato was wonderful.

The bartender in Santa Monica could use a little more personality. He works there in the evenings he sort of a tall slender gentleman. Otherwise the service and the food are fantastic. We always have a lovely time there

Daily Grill is a great option in Santa Monica when you’re looking for a sit down waiter experience without the tourist vibe of the Promenade. The menu is varied with salads, sandwiches, burger and fish. The warm sour dough bread is delicious! This is our go to for business lunch. Great service from start to finish.

Arrived to a bar filled with LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS attendees and an overall noise level that would exceed a Super Bowl viewing party.

No way that we will ever attempt to eat here again at this time during the week.

Easily a standard. How pleasant to have somewhere with a varied menu with many choices. The noise level was very calm and the seats were comfortable. What a concept! LOL
Service was good, food was good and as advertised. I will remember to add this one to our list when we want to pick a place where we can talk!

The food was good. The server was very good. However, there wasn't enough help. The server had many tables has to take orders, take checks; serve food, tend to many things without any help. Therefore service was slow, long wait for bread and water. This is not a reflection on the server but on the management who do not provide enough employees to have a good standard of service.

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.

They have really limited their menu and taken off what seems to be the most poplar items. Also, the prices go up and the quantity has gone down. It's noticeable. Okay for a quick business lunch. Not someplace I would really decide to go if I had other choices.

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.
