Daily Grill - Downtown DC Ratings and Reviews
Here on vacation . . . this place got us seated right away as their were plenty of tables open! However, no server came to even give us water. The one that actually looked at us for about ten minutes, didn't even bother to say "Let me find the individual responsible for this section". Just looked repeatedly and then looked away and ignored us. Horrible experience . . . we ate at District Taco instead and it was fantastic.
The waiter was not interested in us at all. He tried to push the most expensive items on the menu and wanted to rush us to order. The short ribs were underwhelming and more like an appetizer portion. He then rushed us to pay but I was not ready to do so. I ate here years ago and it was nice, now I will Never go back.
Place was not busy at all - maybe around 20-30% full. Waited 20 minutes to get water after having been seated, 30 for our order to be taken. Waiter occasionally stopped by - didn't seem particularly concerned with how long we had been waiting. Food was fine - mimosa was... Fine. Don't intend on going back
Keep trying to go back and have a better experience and it's not working out. This time waited 15 minutes for our glass of wine. This after waiting 15 minutes for our waiter to take our order. Our salads arrived long before our drinks. Absurd. The food is consistent and the location is convenient. The service is mediocre at best.
The Daily Grill is a dependable, comfortable restaurant -- a cross between a traditional diner and a somewhat more upscale bistro. Lots of comfort food, good breakfast fare, good salads. Service was excellent and the ambiance is unpretentious and very pleasant.
Love this location of the Daily Grill. Large windows for great people watching. Great menu and delicious food. We met friends that are vegan and there were choices for them as well as great selection of burgers, seafood, pot pie, chicken dishes, soups and salads. Everything is delicious - have been going here for years.
great time at Grill. Started at bar waiting for my friends. Relaxing and great service as always. Once at table, awesome Server. Started with salads and main dishes were fish and steak. Food was perfect. First time for one of my friends and they enjoyed it as well.
I love the food but the last few times I've been to Daily Grill, the service was terrible. We waited almost twenty minutes for someone to take our order. The previous time, we waited 20 minutes to get the check. They need to step it up on the service and keep the quality of the food!
I've been to the Daily Grill a few times in the past and it was excellent. This time is was awful. The service was terrible (the server didn't have the qualifications to work at Applebees), the food was barely so so (the meat came out straight off the grill and had no time to rest, and was the fattiest pork chop I've ever had. The pesto had no garlic and the basil they used was not fresh by the taste - I get better from Costco), the wine list only had 3 bottles available (if there were more, we were never offered another list). For the price they charge, I expect much, much better. If this would have been my first time there, I would never go back. Now that it's my 4th time there, I will still never go back.
We've dined at various Daily Grill venues and have always experienced a good meal at a decent price. However, our recent experience at the downtown DC location was a real disappointment. The food was mediocre, the service perfunctory and the wine offering pitiful. While it might have just been an off night for that particular restaurant, the experience was bad enough to warrant our not returning anytime soon.
