    We stop at Daily Kitchen every time we are in Richmond because we love the ambiance, creative menu and quality of the food. It’s always a highlight of our trip. Starting with the beverage menu, cocktails are one of my favorites things at DK. Creative combinations and my too strong. My beer snob companion likes the diverse selections and local breweries represented. Food is top notch quality and portions are generous. Flavor is evident on every dish. Love the Brussel sprouts. Dessert menu could use a little attention. Nothing on there makes ya say “gotta try that”

    Took out of town guests to The Daily for lunch, they loved the choices on the menu. I love how many vegan/vegetarian options are available. The Buffalo Cauliflower was to die for.

    Excellent gluten free options! The gluten free pizza was excellent. Fish tacos were pretty good, but standard fare. Was excited to try some gluten free desserts, but our server dropped the check unprompted and left. We never got a chance to ask for dessert or coffee. No refills the whole time either. Service made me feel kind of unwanted there and uncomfortable, but I'll still go back if we're in the area because it's a rare place with extensive GF options. Also, be aware the patio does not allow dogs. Ours had to stay in the car, which was fine on the mild night.

    Service was subpar, waitress brought water and coffee but never refilled coffee and wasn’t very present. Appetizers took 35 minutes for a very small portion and entrees took another 15 minutes after that. Food was decent but not outstanding. Patio seating is kind of cramped but very nice if you enjoy watching the bustle of Cary Street.

    Steaks were undercooked. Mashed potatoes were hard. Sides generally lacked flavor. Kid's meal came out 15 minutes after table entrees. Cocktail was bland. Server was good, but they were short-staffed. Hostess was bussing tables. Buffalo cauliflower appetizer was DELICIOUS. CHICKEN MARSALA SPECIAL was very good.

    It was a Saturday... and the kitchen was slammed. Took about 40 minutes to get our eggs. The wait staff was very nice. The Avocado, cheese omelet had a few pieces of air-dried avocado. The fruit cup was tiny. I'll give them another chance on a less busy day.

    We were able to be seated early. We had a great table. However, all of the tables seem to be present a nice view and comfort level. The outdoor seating also appeared to be nice. Loved the variety of food and drink selection.The bathrooms were very clean. The hostess and our waitress were very sweet.

    We chose The Daily Kitchen because it offered a wide variety of gluten and dairy free options, which can be difficult for someone with food intolerances. We were thankful for a restaurant that offered these options. However, the flavors were sadly underwhelming or off. The hummus tasted heavily of lemon, the guacamole tasted pre-packaged, and the tomato bisque tasted like jarred pasta sauce.

    Seated between two crowded tables, one with a high chair and toddler sitting inches from our table. Very loud. Service was slow, not a big deal, server was awesome. Food was just okay. Tuna poke missing quinoa, steak tacos very tough to eat (steak difficult to chew). Based on this experience I probably will not return.

    Overall, a good place. Vodka martinis were well made. Tuna Tower was good. Maybe not the best tuna I've had but the serving was generous and the mango and other accompaniments were quite good. The chopped Salas was excellent. Very generous. Could easily have been a meal, especially if you add a protein. The salmon entree was excellent. Finally found a place that will cook it medium rare. The Mahi Mahi in the fish tacos was disappointing. Well overcooked.

    We booked based on the menu that we saw online; it wasn’t the same menu when we arrived. Disappointed that the site for carytown wasn’t updated as the short pump location did have their menu up-to-date. Waited for almost 1.5 hours for our food; granted we tried to understand that they were staffing issues; didn’t have utensils and my family had finish half their meal before I got a fork and had to wait for a missing part of my order which was received after I had already finished my meal. Hoping when we go back; things will be better; service more attentive and menu updated.

    Sadly, the food at The Daily — once a favorite of ours — has really taken a nosedive. The hot honey pizza was so bad that it recalled an elementary school cafeteria. The uninspired buratta was served with mediocre tomatoes…during local tomato season.

    Our server was good, but everything was very slow. It was Sunday brunch and steady business, but not packed. It took 10 minutes to get water and we were there almost 20 minutes before anyone even took a drink order. It was at least 50 minutes before we saw any food! Fortunately, there were 5 of us and the conversation was flowing, so no one was upset. We have only been there a couple of times, but this seemed even slower than before. Our server checked on us several times and we got the feeling the slow down may have been coming from the kitchen? Anyway, we will probably go again as it is a good place for Sunday brunch.

    Mediocre food. Low quality tuna. Worst service I’ve ever had. Ordered plain lemonade and got charged for mock tails. Waiter took my credit card to pay bill without first leaving me an itemized receipt. When I asked for it, that is when I figured out I’d been charged for mock tails. When I asked for a correction, he argued with me until I had no choice but to ask for a manager.
