Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "We had a great dinner at Dalya's. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. The restaurant was full, and you could tell that the staff were very busy, but they made every effort to make sure that we were served promptly."

  • "What a wonderful luncheon we had. 9 of us from our neighborhood had all the choices available to us. Great variety. The wine list really allowed for everyone's individual preference. Our server was very helpful and pleasant. We all chose to dine from the PF menue. All were very happy."

  • "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 fideu√† 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."

  • "Four of us went out for dinner. I got the Moroccan Lamb Loin, and it was superb. My friends were all impressed with their meals, as well. I ordered a Lemon drop, and it was also very well done! This is a great place to go for a celebration, or just a special dinner."

  • "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."

  • "We went to Dalya's Restaurant for a business dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food. There were no complaints. The server was a very attentive and the food was delivered quickly. As a vegetarian, there were options and they were very good."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "I've been coming to Dalya's for decades, both for lunch and dinner and I've never been disappointed. The food and service are consistently good, with a quiet and soothing ambience that is good for relaxation and conversation. It is especially cosy in the winter, with a welcoming fireplace. I always look forward to eating here."

  • "As a lamb fanatic, I'm extremely judgrmental about quality, preparation, and presentation. Without a doubt, their Morocan lamb loin was the finest lamb I've river had the pleasure of consuming in my 75 years. Awe inspiring hardly does it justice."

Very pricey for very average. "
