We had about 32 people dining. There was NOT enough room. We had to split into many tables, even in different sections of the restaurant. It took 15 minutes for the wairtress to even ask about drinks. It took another 20 minutes to get even water. The waitress couldn't even remember who ordered which drink. Then it was another 20...

A special on the menu, the "Homestyle Meatloaf" is fantastic comfort food. Served with gravy and mash its fine on its own, or you can have additional vegetables. Its the only thing we order when we visit. There are a good variety of other options should you want to opt for something else .... but why bother, and be warned... More

We were invited to dinner here and waited in the bar. My gin and tonic was delivered by a surly staffer and was really gin and soda; which was quickly replaced. We ate dinner in the bar booths which are terribly uncomfortable. The food (chicken parm) was mediocre and the service about the same. So glad we were were someone's... More

Great place for lunch. Takes reservations. Generous portions. Hard to have a quiet conversation. Excellent service and well prepared meals.

Had the kale/chicken Caesar salad. Awesome, but do sit at the bar and ask for Randy as she is so friendly and just great service!

I had the opportunity to visit the Daily Grill with some friends on a Saturday night. With the craziness of the Santa pub crawl going on around us, an early dinner was planned. We sat at a booth, enjoyed our drinks and meals (they were well prepared, pretty standard meals, served promptly), and headed out. My friend who lives in... More

The lighting, booths, and location of this restaurant are all very elegant. We ate in the bar section, however, and the service was poor. The waiter acted like we were a total inconvenience and actually sighed when I chose not to order a cocktail. The food was amazing!!! Just what we wanted. Angel hair pomodoro and trout amandine were worth... More

The Daily Grill is an attractive place, very nice decor, good looking menu with some entrees under 600 calories, we decided to try it out for dinner. We were seated right away, in a very attractive booth overlooking M Street with huge glass windows. It took a while for our server to show up, but we explained we needed to... More

The food was ok when we finally got it. Took 10 minutes to get water. Never came back to refill any drink. Had to ask for silverware. My wife was so aggravated. Left no tip. We owe rent even sure who was our waiter. Worse. It wasnt busy at all. All the wait staff was black. I honestly thought they... More

Ate lunch here the day after the Inauguration. I had the French toast which was very nice. Husband had a hamburger - great fries. We also were served the monkey bread which tasted very good. Our waitress was very proficient and food came out quickly. My fave part of the whole experience was the ambiance. Nice and quiet. I would... More
