Fabulous evening here! The food was wonderful. Ambience was wonderful. The server was wonderful. Didn’t rush us. We sat and enjoyed dinner and conversation for almost 4 hours. I highly recommend!

The restaurant was nice and bright. Nothing anyone at the table got to eat was very good. The one in Carytown is so much better. Disappointed that it didn't stack up.

Our daughter is a vegan. We asked her to choose a restaurant for the four of us that evening. Thus, she chose The Daily. Plus, she had given us a gift card a couple of years ago, so we used that. We had a reservation and were happy that we were placed away from the crowd and near the windows. Three of us were happy with our dinner selections, but one said his hamburger was too dry.

One of my favorite restaurants in the Richmond area—everything I’ve eaten there was great! Only drawback is that it’s a little noisy in there, but service and food are fantastic!

Regardless of what you order or when you come, The Daily is fantastic. The cocktails are fairly priced and delicious, the spinach and artichoke dip is probably the best I've had, the brussel sprouts are delicious, and the seared salmon with the chimichurri has the right amount of kick and is cooked perfectly. The happy hour menu is top notch, as well.

I would recommend this place to anybody!

Crisp, clean and perfect. We came for brunch and the entire experience did not disappoint. The avocado toast was hearty and delicious. The potatoes were delicious and cooked to perfection. The wheat toast was chewy and had a hint of sweetness to it. My daughter couldn’t say enough about her cheesy grits. Service was impeccable as well.

While my meal was good the service was erratic - our appetizers were forgotten and then delivered after the entrees and then the lettuce for my wife’s salad had flies all over it from not being properly washed. We politely let our waitress know at the end and were barely acknowledged.

We've been here many times because of the varied menu which is good for us and my vegan son. Our last visit wasn't good. They were moderately busy but not overly so. We were seated right away but not greeted my the waitress for over 15 min. At 35 min in, we still didn't have our drinks and my husband walked up to the bar to pick them up since the waitress hadn't brought them over. Salads that were to come out first came with the meal. We hurried to order refills,etc when the waitress came because we weren't sure when she'd be back. Food was good. This was the 2nd slow experience withing 10 days- last time was when my son and husband met for lunch. It will be a while before we give this one another try.

Some of the charm of the Cary Street location is lost since the Short Pump location is not on Cary Street! Food was ok but nothing spectacular. Not sure I would go back.

Service was AMAZING and always is. This is the main reason I continue to go The Daily. It's still just too loud and hard to have a conversation sometimes. My oysters were overly salty (breading), but the chickpea salad was delicious.
