Our dinner on a Saturday night with friends was, for the first time at the Daily Dish, a mixed bag. We were probably the last reservation at 8:15 but our waiter, who was new to us, acted as though it was midnight and he had to get home. He brought our entrees while we hadn't yet finished appetizers and was intrusive through the meal.
Apart from that annoyance, the food was delicious and imaginative.

Our waiter, an "old hand" at Daily Dish, did a marvelous job of handling our multi-generational table. I think the problem was insufficient kitchen help, especially in delivering a brownie sundae as dessert that our waiter delivered swiftly but had been delayed by the kitchen.

We had family in town for the new year and made reservations at this little gem. When we got there, I realized I had been there years ago but didn't remember much about it. We were very satisfied with our experience, the service was great, the food was great and the ambiance was great.

Great food at a good price in a casual setting. Everything from gourmet entrees to pizza and burgers. The venison was a seasonal treat. My family comes every few months and we’re never disappointed.

We have been at the Daily Dish multiple times for Brunch and for Dinner. There is an excellent chef -- the food is always excellent. Friendly, non-fancy setting and moderate prices. A favorite place for us to go for an evening out or a brunch with friends.

Great meal last night at the Daily Dish, a neighborhood gem in Upper Northwest. Great menu items, ambiance and 1/2 price wine. The crab cakes and the salmon were BiG hits. I’ll definitely go back!

After eating here many, many times, it was really time to leave a review. We call DD the GS-14 hangout. DD is a mix of older, empty nesters, young families, singles watching the game and hanging at the bar. It's easy to get to, plenty of parking, and while it can be a little loud outside, it's lovely on the patio. During the week, everyone is still wearing their government badges and sharing a beer or a glass of wine and pizza. We love this place, whether we are with teens, with kids, with Grandma, with friends, with neighbors. The soups are always wonderful and seasonal, I love the mushroom app on the regular menu, the chicken and pastas are lovely, the burgers, sliders, pizzas are great and *always* leave room for dessert -- the ice creams are terrific and the bread pudding and apple crisp last night were excellent. From the daily menus, we've loved the short ribs, the risotto, soups, and the seasonal salads. Scallops and fish have been good too. I had the new apple, prosciutto, fennel one last night and it was delicious. We love the local beers. We've gone for New Year's Eve and it was terrific. The service is almost always attentive and always informative.

We hadn't been here before. There was a large variety of seasonal dishes in addition to the regular menu. One of us ordered a pizza off the regular menu and the other, a seasonal salmon dish (which was outstanding). Dessert was not as good as the entrees. Service was quick and helpful.

We were down visiting our daughter at UMD and just stumbled upon this online. Sounded good - thought we would try. AMAZING! If we lived close to Silver Spring we would be here all the time. Now we will have to wait until we come visit again - but there is no other place we will go to - It was absolutely delicious and the wait staff was incredibly friendly and professional.

Had a late dinner here with a couple of friends on Friday evening. Because I brought my dog, we braved the rain and sat on the patio. I did not realize the patio was closed, but the hostess and waiter were very nice and accommodating. The buffalo cauliflower and braised short ribs were absolutely delicious, and the patio is wonderful for dog owners. I will definitely be back.

I was there on a very hot day. The front wall was completely open even though the air conditioning was on. This is against the law in Washington. I don't know if it is in Montgomery County or in Silver Spring. But common sense requires that you simply don't waste electricity that way nor overload the a.c. unit. It did not work well near the front of the restaurant, of course !!!

My go to place when people want to get together. Great food choices that often change as chef gets creative. I don't live near the restaurant but know the neighborhood very well from years of working at the school across the street before it even opened. What a great addition to the neighborhood.

Service was perfect. I was expecting a leisurely meal and food was delivered more quickly than I expected. However, in no way were we rushed. Salmon and rock fish were prepared to perfection. Boy choy under fish and as side dish was mushy as opposed to gently prepared. Nice for casual dining.

Our service was unusually slow considering the restaurant was not nearly at full capacity for a Friday night. My wife ordered a salmon dish that she originally thought had a basil pesto sauce. We were told that the sauce shown was from the day before, and the current day's sauce was caper lemon butter sauce. She was generally OK with it. When the food came out, it had the basil pesto sauce, and this sauce did not at all go well with the fennel. She also asked for the fish well done and it was barely cooked medium.
