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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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!
