Food was very good but service was slow. Our waiter was so nice but we felt like we were sitting there forever. Brunch menu is delish!

LOVE this restaurant! This one in Carytown and the one in Short Pump are phenomenal. I love their healthy options :) HIGHLY highly recommend! And the aesthetic is great as well - super cute, bright, cozy, and modern.

This is actually a regular haunt on the request of my five year old daughter. She loves their food and Limeade. I quite like it too.

We loved our dinner at The Daily. The staff is wonderful. From the minute we arrived, they were incredibly helpful and friendly, giving us a table adjacent to the patio with lots of fresh air, when we were worried about Covid and there were no more seats outside. Also, our waiter, Sean, who was the absolute BEST. The portions are huge, and the food is very delicious. Menu options are varied, and the drinks are fun and yummy. It is located in a neighborhood that is wonderful for walking around after dinner.

Don’t waste your time eating here. The service was nothing short of atrocious. The waiter took our lunch order and came back to the table 10-15 minutes later and asked my friend and I if we were ready for him to take our order!! Just LOL. I ordered iced tea with lemon, and the lemon was not brought, so I had to ask for it again. Not once was my iced tea refilled, even though my glass was empty while I was still eating my meal. The food itself was mediocre at best. I will not be returning to this establishment.

We ate a Saturday lunch at the Daily; it was our first time trying it as we live in DC. The service was excellent and the food was very good, our only wish was that there was a better beer selection and that it wasn’t quite so loud. There were several table of college girls around us and their voices were so loud you could hear little else. Nevertheless we would return here and do recommend it!

We checked out the menu online prior to making the reservation. When we arrived the menu was limited, however, it still included photos of some of the items they were not serving. The service was horrible and I had to get up and grab something I asked for after a long while without getting. Would never go back.

The food was delicious and felt healthy but filling. The cocktails were unique and tasty. The highlight was our waiter Sam; he was casual and comfortable but gave good advice. We never felt rushed and it was just an overall good time.

Perfect Brunch at the Daily! We started with Mimosas and shared the Tuna Tower, a tower of layered diced fresh Tuna, mango, cucumbers, avocado, micro greens, Sriracha and Wasabi Aiolis with sesame wonton chips. YUM! I enjoyed the avocado, white cheddar and mushroom Omelette which was perfectly prepared with berries on the side. My friend ordered the Huevos Rancheros, a hearty dish with eggs sunny side up, chorizo, black beans, white cheddar, pico sauce and corn tortillas with a side of home fries. It totally hit the spot. Always excellent service and great food.

Group of loud women seated right next to us? Heard of COVID? Fish tacos had tiny pieces of MAHI MAHI. Our waiter left and someone else took care of us. Done with THE DAILY!!

I was excited to visit the Daily Kitchen and Bar when a friend recently invited me to lunch. I had been there many times in the past and felt secure in choosing this establishment due to the excellent food presented during past visits (pre-Covid). I ordered the hummus platter and although the beet hummus and the pita bread were good, unfortunately, the accompanying carrots, cucumbers, and feta crumbles were not fresh. The food was presented on a large plate with lots of empty space between the food items - it just looked hurried and unprofessional.
Our waiter was attentive and the atmosphere was ok, but my dish was definitely a disappointment.
In the time of Covid, I give restaurants all the props I can and I'll give The Daily Kitchen another try someday in hopes that this was just an off day for the kitchen crew.

Great spot! The food is healthy and delicious. We started with the Buffalo cauliflower appetizer and it was delicious. We both ordered the Kale salad with the eco Salmon and we devoured it. The Salmon was cooked to perfection and the salad vinaigrette brought out all the flavors in the salad. The lighting was just right, the music selection had a chill vibe and the service was attentive. Enjoy!

Service wasn’t as good as you expect. Our drinks were never refilled. The table was not pre-bused. When we got there, the restaurant was mostly empty but it took 20 mins before our drink order was taken and another 20 for the waitress to take our food order. We also asked for 2 checks in the beginning which the server forgot and told us we basically all got the same thing so just split it in half ourselves. One family’s bill was $140 and the other should of been $85. We noticed we were charged for 2 glasses of wine that were not ours. She said she took them off but realized after we got home that she still charged us for them. The food it amazing but service needs some work.
