Description: Daily Grill is located on Geary, near Powell, only a half-block from Union Square and in the center of San Francisco’s theatre district. Comfortable and clubby with booths and high ceilings, Daily Grill is a great place to take a break from the bustle of Union Square. The large menu and comfortable decor makes the Daily Grill a favorite stop before or after the theatre. Daily Grill is an updated version of the San Francisco grills of the past, providing generous portions of classic American dishes, such as steaks, chops, chicken pot pie, and meat loaf...a neat, friendly place where one can get crab cakes or a burger, Shrimp Louie or a T-Bone, along with martinis, single malts, microbrews and a good bottle of wine. The ambience is lively and clubby, with comfortable booths, dark woods and high ceilings.

“Looks like a good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Daily Grill is onsite restaurant at the Handlery Union Square - came in after late arrival/check-in at hotel for a drink/snack. Friendly bar staff, good selection of beer, wine & cocktails. Menu looked interesting but we got there after the kitchen closed. Would try it for sure next time we're there.

“Unimpressive ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Ate here as part of a business group so we only chose from among a small number of menu choices, but top notch restaurants make sure that ALL of their menu choices are tasty. I have eaten at many other restaurants as part of a professional/business group and this experience was underwhelming. The dinner salad was rather mundane, the Morrocan chicken was dried out and hard to choke down even with the house wine, which was good. The rice was tasty but people rarely dine at a restaurant just for the rice. Even the dessert (cobbler and ice cream) would have been much better if the cobbler had been warmed before serving. Overall, this was an unimpressive dining experience and certainly not worth the cost.

“Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We ate at the Grill our first night in town. My husband absolutely loved the home style meatloaf and I had the penne pesto chicken, which as pretty tasty. We were able to get a table without a wait and the service was really good. The prices are a little above average, but worth the money.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This restaurant is right across the street from the Westin St. Francis and reasonably priced. The food is very fresh and the service is good.

Do not expect gourmet cuisine, the restaurant specializes in "comfort food" (they have homemade chicken pot pie and meatloaf on the menu, as well as steaks and lighter fare. I had the chicken picatta and my daughter had the sautéed vegetable plate. Portions were large and food was quite good.

Returned the last day for a burger before heading to the airport. They grind the meat fresh in their kitchen, and the fries are made from real potatoes. The peanut cole slaw was very tasty.

A good spot if you are not in the mood for fancy and expensive.
