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.
Saturday 5:00pm – 10:00pm
Happy Hour and Special Appetizer menu starting at $4 in the bar. Hours from 4 – 7pm Monday – Friday; 5 – 10pm Saturday
We have been here several times over the years and it never disappoints.
On this night, however, we wanted to try the Friday night special of
the prime rib dinner.
We arrived early to be sure they did not run out of the prime rib,
as they did once with another special.
It was delicious and came with potato and creamed spinach.
We started with soup or salad. We had one of each. They
were both good.
The servers were attentive and checked back often.
We enjoyed the meal and felt very comfortable there.
Our favorite couples and also, with friends, place to go for dinner. Any day or on weekends.
consistently good basic American comfort food we go often
The Daily Grill is exactly what it is: a great place for simple, straight-forward food in a comfortable setting with professional, attentive service. What’s not to like?
We enjoyed our lunch although the Cobb Salad was lacking as there wasn't enough blue cheese and Italian dressing would not be my preferred recipe. The bacon was more like bacon bits than bacon pieces. And, there wasn't much avocado. Seems to me they cut back on the higher cost ingredients to improve their margins but the overall experience was poor as a result. The rest of the food was very good including the vegetarian black bean/quinoa burger and the grilled artichoke. The heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad was uneven as the tomatoes were great but the mozzarella was rubbery and tasteless.
The service was great and the ambiance was very comfortable.
Always enjoy dining at The Daily Grill in Santa Monica. Took my 30 year old grandson and his friend for steak dinner and they loved it.
I thought it was great...too bad they did not check that I had made a reservation.
That left me feeling quite odd.
The food and service at the Daily Grill in Santa Monica was quite good. They do not have a huge menu but most diners will find something to their taste. The regular menu burger seems a little overpriced.
Very good service; good food
will definitely visit again
Boring menu and over priced
Went for the prime beef special and it was inedible.....could not chew....sent it back. Manager was very gracious and did not charge us.
The serving portion was plentiful with above average taste. Good for every day dining.
Value was excellent as my guest had the Wednesday pork chop special and I had the DineLA menu. We shared that dessert, and I even had pasta left over to take home!
Friendly and adept service, too. Plus free parking!
Good food with great service. Can get a bit noisy.
They make a great hamburger...to the requested specifications of doneness. In our case one person had very rare and the other medium. Both were perfect.
We went there for Dine LA. Everything we ordered tasted great especially the fish(barramundi). I would highly recommend the Daily Grill
was trying their DineLA meal and was really disappointed. I have been there before and don't remember the food being so bad. I had the Chicken Marsala with angel hair pasta and it tasted like Rice a Roni mix. The beef tenderloin was okay but kinda dry. The desserts were bad (strawberry shortcake was like a scone and the carmel apple sundae was really sweet). The gazpacho soup and watermelon and cucumber salad weren't too bad. I won't be back
Waiter was too intrusive...kept asking "is everything alright?" Very annoying.
One of the better places in the area to go for lunch. Service is always great, and the food is better than most of the food trucks that park nearby. While the trucks cost less, I consider this a better overall value due to the comfort and quality of the overall dining experience.
We met some friends who were visiting from out of state. We were all comfortable and each chose delicious entrees. The waitstaff was delightful and took excellent care of us.
SINCE THERE WAS A LARGE PARTY IN THE BACKROOM THE SERVICE WAS NOT UP TO PAR. WE ASKED FOR BREAD WHICH THE WAITER BROUGHT IT BUT NO BREAD PLATES.
I ASSUME THAT THE COOKING STAFF WAS OVERWHELMED WITH THE LARGE PARTY SINCE OUR FOOD TOOK SOME TIME TO ARRIVE.
Portions were on the smaller side.
Great service every time but Patricia and Jennifer are my favorite!
Great food, great service, great parking, great prices. An all around great neighborhood restaurant!
The food is always spot-on....and the service was fast and available when needed.
Good food at fair prices with attentive service. This restaurant is good for coupes and families.
Good food and good service. The trout is excellent as are the fish and chips and the filet mignon. Friday prime rib dinner is wonderful
This is our go to restaurant, just the two of us or meeting friends, birthday lunches with cousins, etc.!
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.
food isn’t great. used to be so much better. still love the hot bread and butter. wish they could be as good as they used to be!
Good seating. Great menu and food Excellent service
Very noisy. Should have gotten an outside table
Great prime rib and good service in Santa Monica. Their happy hour is also excellent.
Ordering rare beef and actually getting it is rare. The daily grill did a terrific job on that part.
Service was not quite As attentive as it should be... but OK. Yes, we will return...
Wonderful staff love having lunch here
Always good food and service. We appreciate the quietness although we know it’s noisier during the week which is why Saturday is perfect.
You have one of my favorite dishes anywhere: The trout almandine Is my favorite dish in ANY restaurant! CONGRATULATIONS!
THE CHEF'S SPECIAL DINNER (ROAST BEEF LEFT A LOT TO BE DESIRED). MY CUT OF ROAST WASN'T VERY GOOD; IT WAS THIN, CHEWY AND WASN'T APPETIZING AT ALL. I HAD THE SAME DINNER LAST WEEK AND IT WAS EXCELLENT!
A favorite restaurant.
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
Really nice to be able to have a conversation unlike most restaurants these days.
