The extensive menu features timeless favorites and unique preparations to suit all tastes while providing unrivaled hospitality and stellar service. In a comfortable, yet upscale environment, Daily Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bar is a favorite stop for Happy Hour seven days a week, from 3pm - 6pm, where craft beer and hand-crafted cocktails are paired with eclectic appetizers. Modeled after the great San Francisco grills of the '30s and '40s, it is an ideal spot to dine or drink while shopping, enjoying a night out or for a great meal before a show.

“Easy Going”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Not sure what to expect, we settled in to two tables with a view of Geary Street. I had the crab cakes, and was careful to ask before if this was going to be loaded with flour and bread crubs I was assured no. My sister had the talapia, served over a brown rice. The fish was wonderful and delicate, the brown rice well done and the sauce it was served in left it feeling like a nutty risotto. I truly enjoyed the crab cakes, no flour or bread crumbs here, wonderful bits of crab. My dish also came with shoe string fires. Nothing soggy or feeling like it came from a frozen bag. It was a good starting meal for our visit to SF. It was a few minutes walk from our hotel. If you are also in Union Square take a few steps up and try this one.

“Good Bar, Good Food, Good Wine List”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We decided to eat here as it was close to our hotel and we didn't fancy venturing very far having spent the day exploring the city from Lombard St to Haight Ashbury, and hitting the shops round Union Square and Market Street.

Had to wait for a table, but enjoyed a drink while people watching in the bar.

The food was very good, with portions on the large side. I had crab cakes to start, which was becoming a habit! The pork chop I had for my main course was excellent, juicy, succulent and very tasty. A very nice bottle of Sonoma Pinot Noir went down well too.

Busy, bustling restaurant with good service.

“Good solid breakfast”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

We had the Belgium Waffle, sides of eggs- (any style), toast coffee and orange juice. The servers were very accommodating- they had no problems in splitting a Belgium waffle amongst the children. The orange juice despite stating "freshly squeezed" on the menu is just bottled! Food was great, very filling, and the service was efficient.

“Good flank steak”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Wife and I were staying at the Monaco hotel for our anniversary. We pasted the daily grill several times walking to union square. We had no problem getting a reservation about thirty minutes in advance. We were sitted right away

We didn't like the first talbe they offered due to it being two inches from the person eating next to us. The hostes was nice and offered a better table. While sittibg ac taller older manager with a goatee yelled at us like one of his employees. The hostes appeared very afraid of this manager. Almost left but stated

Had grilled artichoke which was on special. Tge artichoke was not seasoned at all and was the worse I have had. I had the flank steak which was good. They served it with a side of head of broccoli. My wife had the filet medallions, which tasted like chicken marsella.

The manager pushed my rating from a four to three.

“Great little restaurant close to Union Square”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Came across this great restaurant just off Union Square while we were wandering around looking for a place for dinner! The service was fantastic. The waiter was very attentive. The menu was varied and catered for all tastes. The portions were very decent! The food was fresh and was cooked to ordered. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone going to San Francisco who wants great food at very reasonable prices!
