Very nice, as always. Open and spacious indoor seating is complemented by two outdoor dining spaces. The menu features varied cuisine, all expertly cooked and presented in generous portions. The staff is friendly, informative and always willing to please, without ever being intrusive. We find The Daily to be one of our "go to" Richmond restaurants.

We were very impressed with the covid guidelines being followed. We ate on the porch but we would have felt comfortable inside due to the social distancing. Food and service were excellent. Look forward to a return visit!

Overall it was good. Our waitress was very good and attentive. The Caesar salad was just "okay" as it wasn't as fresh as it could have been. The main dinner items, steak tacos and chicken were very good.

Prices were reasonable. We will try it again once this covid-19 pandemic is over with.

So nice to have comfortable outdoor dining options! We ate at the DAily on a rainy damp and cold day. The covered patio was so nice - the heaters provided enough warmth but not too much. Tuna Tower is always a fav and my friends said her curry bowl was delicious! Highly recommend the Daily!

The service was extremely slow. It took over 50 minutes to get our food and some of the orders were cold. The waitress was not attentive although the place was not crowded.

Sat outside on a misty Saturday night because a local youth soccer team was inside and the noise from their parent and children tables was unbearable. They were yelling to be heard over the noise. Once situated outside the noise was much more manageable for us all. It was a bit chilly so we asked them to turn on the large patio heater near our table. We were told that it didn't have any propane in it. My sister asked the waitress to share that with the manager and the reply was, "He knows". We ordered drinks and wine. The wine tap dispenser was not working so we had a narrower choice. Thinking a cocktail might be nice I ordered a Palermo to which the waitress replied, What is that? I explained it was a tequila drink. One arrived that was not a typical Palermo, rather off tasting, so I ended up not drinking it. We ordered a beet and arugula salad for the table which was delicious and plentiful. The salmon, roast chicken and Buddha Bowl were also large and delicious. The server was really sweet and made our experience much better.

Way too loud. We couldn’t have a conversation with family without shouting. Food was missing, and unfortunately what we did have was mediocre especially for the price.

Prompt seating, attentive masked server, delicious lunch. Although not guaranteed, they were able to accommodate our request for patio seating and we were socially distanced from our neighboring patrons. Our lunch was a trio of appetizers, my favorite being the roasted Brussels with pistachios and a balsamic reduction. Lovely way to enjoy life as we once knew it!

Went there for oysters, which they have served in the past and they were excellent. Was told they didn't serve them and to try the Carry Town restaurant. Defeats the purpose of eating where I live. Too bad. Hard to find good oysters.

Food is always very good. I ordered the omelette which I expected to be boasting with flavor but not so much. My friends ordered the Buddha Bowl and Teriyaki Bowl which were reported to be fabulous. Staff was awesome. Coffee delicious.

Bailey the server was great, cauliflower app was so so, fish tacos had very little fish about two bites per taco, salmon u der cooked and had to send back. So truthfully I should have rated the food much lower.
