    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!

    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 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.

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.

    This is our second time at this restaurant with my wife. The first one we were invited so we did not realize how expensive it is.we took the fix price option but adding drinks, dessert and tip it went over 60 dollars per person. It is woth the money because the food is excelent as well as the service. We definetly recommend it for special ocassions.

    3rd time there. First 2 were great. This time very average. Very good corn chowder. My chicken meal did not match what the menu said. No spices on chicken, very plain mashed potato and steamed broccoli not at all as described on menu.Could have come from Market Basket Also,online menu does not match actual menu. Won't go back. Very pricey for very average.

    Dalya's in Bedford is a wonderful spot for lunch or dinner, right in the neighbohood near where I work. I found many items on the menu that looked both healthy and delicious and I was delighed with my selection, the Mediterranean Open faced sandwich on Foccacia. The quantity was so plentiful that I saved half for lunch on a second day. I am looking forward to returning to Dalya's so that I can try another delicious item on their lunch menu. Thank you, Dalya's!

    Though I have nothing negative to say about Dalya's I had hoped to have more positive comments. The experience just did not match the pricing or the buzz. Re the pricing, go with the PF menu: somewhat limited choices (though good variety) and more affordable all around.

    This was my second time at Dalya's; both were for a special birthday. Both times I chose the pre fixe (Spelling?) menu. The Caesar salad is ridiculous! It is SO delicious and a very generous portion with just the right amount of dressing and few delightful anchovies. It would actually be large enough for two people to share. For dinner, I chose the salmon with roasted vegetables and couscous. It was hot, cooked perfectly, and delicious. I had the apple and cranberry crisp with vanilla ice cream for dinner and it was a nice way to end a lovely meal. My friends were equally pleased with their meals and the service. We were not rushed nor were we waiting at any time for service.
