    This is my favorite place for a nice dinner out or lunch with friends. I had lunch recently with friends, who were delighted with the room and the menu. The room is cozy and not too brightly lit; overall feeling is warm and relaxed. I am a vegetarian fish-eater and love the fact that there are always at least two fish dishes and something just veggie. The fish is always fresh and beautifully prepared. You can't go wrong with the salmon with grapefruit and orange slices. My friends had grilled chicken breast and were pleased with it. My sea bass came with a wine-butter sauce and pumpkin ravioli. Service was gracious and seats were comfortable. For dessert, the Coupe Lydia can't be beat. Highly recommended.

    My wife and I took our two year old son to Dalya's after I read a few reviews (1 of them unnecessarily negative) on OpenTable. Upon entering the service was terrific, and the patrons were all quite friendly. Our son got many compliments regarding his appearance, behavior and manners. I had a chicken dish that my wife described as "rich with flavor" and she had lamb that I would simply say was delicious. Dante had soup and whenever he requests more, you know it is good. If a restaurant gives timely and friendly service, has good food, and the regular patrons are warm, sweet and welcoming, then you know it is a place that should be frequented as much as possible. I give Dalya's an A plus!!!

    One of our party of 4 had an allergy to garlic and asked about a few dishes and whether or not she could have them without garlic. The waitress acted as if this we were asking her to sacrifice her first born. After telling the person she was in trouble because "just about everything here has garlic," she went to the kitchen and asked the chef. I think the chef was willing, but information came back sporadically from the kitchen. One item he offered was a different sauce on the swordfish special. When another person in our party asked for the sauce the chef recommended as a substitution instead of the regular sauce, the waitress insulted us with, "I have been a waitress a long time and this is the most confusing order I have ever taken."

    Dalyas is always dependable for everything…delicious food and warm welcome. They've added a Tapas menu, though we had lamb and a tenderloin…both were perfect!! The waitstaff are always so nice…we LOVE Dalyas!! Not for young ones, but just like dining in your living room, but you don't have to cook!!

    I had the seafood risotto and the seafood was overcooked, and the dish lacked any flavor. My husband ordered the swordfish special which was advertised as grilled but did not appear to have been grilled at all. It was a disappointment to hear that the restaurant no longer offers any bread with the dinners but it is available for an additional cost.

    Second time to Dalya's Restaurant and visit was just as sensational as the first time. Wonderful appetizers, enough variety and main dish entrees to please most. Duck was superb and desserts were lovely. One of those restaurants you could drive by forever and simply not know it was there. Make a point to try it out as the food is a step above on all accounts.

    Dayla's has always been consistently good. We have been going here periodically over many years. Had not been for a couple of years. Still good. NOthing makes the food really outstanding, but just consistently good. Service was very good,attentive; let us sit and talk and relax. Lovely evening with old friends.

    Having dined at Dalya's a couple of times in the past we were very much ambivalent about dining there again. We needed a spot for 5 people on short notice and they had availability so we decided to give it another. The decor has been refreshed and we received good service from the start. The food was very good and there is a pre fixe option that is a very nice value. Three of our party opted for the pre fixe and the bill was quite reasonable. We will go there again.

    This expensive restaurant is worth it for a special occasion. Very pleasant service, interesting menu. I had two English friends as guests and they enjoyed it, I had two starters which together certainly made a full meal. The salad was overdressed but otherwise interesting. My friends had entrees, both good, and they loved the "coupe Lydea' (sp?).

    Dalya's as long been a favorite of our although it is a bit pricey. They were having a problem with their air conditioner that night and the host came to apologize and offered to move us to another area where it wasn't as warm. Our server, on the other hand, was brusque which was a first for us in this restaurant. Maybe she was feeling the heat also. We will definitely go back again and again.

    Our evening at Dalya's was more than "very good", but we reserve 5 stars for that rare totally memorable dining experience. That being said, our meal was excellent, the service friendly but professional, and the ambiance relaxing. Will return to Dalya's and would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant.

    Once again, another great dinner at Dalya's - phenomenal food, mostly great service, and some good revisions to the menu. The only negative thing to note is that they now charge for bread, now focaccia and flat bread in lieu of the terrific sourdough bread they used to serve for free. A place of this caliber should not charge for bread, butter, and hummus. There must be a better way!

    Came here with a friend to check out the DineBoston 2014 offerings. She had never been to Dalya's, while it's been a while for me. I had Caesar salad, the friend had soup. Yum. I had crab cakes and the friend had the chicken breast for entrees. We both agreed that the meals were excellent. We were full, but we had desserts, since it was part of the prix-fixe menu. My friend said the bread pudding was different, in a good way, that is and she ate it all, and I had a pumpkin bread type of dessert with ice cream which was stellar. Now that Dalya's is back on my radar, I'll have to come back more often. Our server Kathleen was outstanding, too. My friend left with a very good impression of Dalya's.

    The reason I came to this restaurant was them laving arancini on the online menu, however, in reality they did not have them. I chose fideuà instead, which is missspelt on the menu. It was closer to spagetti alle vongole with a couple of shrimps and fish pieces. Decent as such but far from the real thing. The wine they offer as special by the glass selection was beneath every possible criticism.

    I recently had my second meal at Dalya's. I was equally impressed both times. The selection, though not huge, is diverse. Everything we had was artfully presented and well prepared. The Prix Fixe menu is an excellent value, and we were absolutely overwhelmed by both the quantity and quality of the dishes. I would never think to stop there based on driving by; from street it looks almost like a little cottage next to a big ice cream stand. But once you get inside it is a 4 to 5 star experience.

    I must say the Prix Fixe is a real bargain with a lot more choice than one would expect in terms of main course, and dessert and appetizers. The service was good and I liked how we were given time between courses so that we could enjoy each one without someone putting another dish in front of us while we just finished another.
