The mahi-mahi special was delicious; perfectly cooked and flavorful. The large dining area allowed a good spread between tables, so noise levels were low, making it easy to converse. Service was friendly and attentiive.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent local restaurantI've enjoyed dining at Dalya's multiple times for lunch, dinner, and also private events, and every time, they delight with great food and service. Their menu over the years has grown as they've added more new items, particularly with more vegetarian and seafood entrees. I highly recommend Dalya's for either personal or business occasions!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming restaurantThere are many options to choose from - small portions, entrees, vegetarian.

The food is delicious and the waitstaff is very friendly and efficient!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMwe go to Dalyas several timeswe go to Dalyas several times a year and always find it consistent and reasonably priced (see the 3 course prix fixe for $38). House wine was fine and the small (5 oz) fillet is always excellent.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemDalyas is wonderful, every time we go. The atmosphere is so comfortable, as is the menu. My favorite is the Prix Fixe where you can get my favorite of Appetizer of Sizzling Crab Cake w/ remoulade and grapefruit sections and avocado w/pesto drizzle, Half Roast Boneless Chicken w/Skin and potato, peas, carrot/onion, and baked stuffed tomato with spinach and feta. Then one of their fantastic desserts like Cafe Louis w Bedford Farms coffee ice cream, homemade coffee brandy sauce , chocolate bits and whipped cream. Drinks are well made, generous and chilled. We can't wait to get back . Dalyas Lovers, John & Margaret5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMOTHER'S DAYThe menu had an extensive list of choices. Food was very good. It was busy but everything was served hot. The
atmosphere felt like one big family celebrating. The waitstaff had a lot of people to wait on but we didn't feel
either rushed or not cared for. Have had lunch at Dalya's many times and the food is always very good. We'll
have to start making Dalya's a special occasion destination for us, too. Thank you for making Mother's Day special.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMost excellent 90th Birthday Party30 of us assembled in the "library" for Helen's 90th party. We started with appetizers and drinks before moving to a sit-down 3-course dinner. Frans had prepared the menu for us earlier, and we did not need to make a single change. Two wonderful staff took care of our every need, and the food was top-notch. The party girl was beaming at the end, and I heard some of the cousins making plans to come back for dinner again. Highly recommend Dalya's for your small party.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWedding lunchWe took our friend and co-worker out for lunch to celebrate her upcoming wedding. The staff was very accomodating, considering I messed up the number of people attending. The food was so good and we didn't feel like we were making too much noise disturbing other diners.
I have been to Dayla's before and don't know why I don't go more often.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Outstanding!I've enjoyed Dalya's since my first experience there about 7 years ago, when I moved to this area of Massachusetts to work at MIT Lincoln Lab. Being completely new to the area, I did a web search looking for highly rated restaurants. Dalya's looked great on-line, and was nothing short of outstanding in person! The food and presentation are excellent, along with the wine list. The service is also outstanding and you will enjoy a quiet and romantic ambience if you're with that someone special (as I was this past weekend). I expect that Dalya's will continue to be my highest-rated, fine dining experience thanks to the owners, Frans and Mita, the chef (of course) and the exceptional staff .5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMescargotThe apetizers of crab cakes and escargot and the entre of Salmon were excellent. I Had spagetti Bolognes whic ranked on the bottom of that dish I had eaten at many retaurants. It was flat and lacking adequate ingedients to suplement the pasta.It seemed as if they had run out of tomato, meat etc but plenty of spagetti4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Little bit of Provence in BedfordDalya's offers a bit of French country dining just a few miles from home. What a gem -- close to major highways, easy parking, and once inside, voila, we are in Provence! The service is efficient and friendly and the menu diverse and reasonable, with offerings classically French to choices of fresh local seafood and vegetarian options as well. We chose the Prix Fixe three course dinner and were not disappointed. While there is no children's menu at Dalya's, a simple pasta dish was offered for our granddaughter. She was welcomed and served as warmly as the three adults she was dining with. We have dined at this restaurant many times over the years, even at it's first location in Lexington as Le Bellecoeur. I highly recommend Dalya's.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, wonderful food andAs usual, wonderful food and service.

It should go without saying that the meals are excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMvery niceMy husband and I took my mom here for her birthday. We all had the $38 3-course prix fixe menu which we all enjoyed. The service was very nice. I hadn't been here in years but attended an engagement party here last August which was very nice so we went back again in September for our anniversary. It is now my favorite local special occasion restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMService wasn't up to par likeService wasn't up to par like it usually is. It took a long time to get our food. The waiter was caddy. The waiter read the specials, but didn't come by to see how the food was nor ask if we needed anything,refill the bread and water or ask if we wanted other drinks after we got our appetizers and ordered. Great salad offerings, and good mix of entree choices. We have been going to Dalya's for yrs. The FOOD is amazing and SUPERB. I had a seafood risotto, with a large portion lobsterm my son a sirloin burger. Some of us ordered thru the price fixe $38, appetizer,entree, desserts, a la carte, entrees ~$25-37, desserts ~8.50.Nice ambience, smaller, more intimate upstairs. Owner told other client on another visit, customer isn't always right.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!!This restaurant is consistently awesome!! We brought my in-laws here who were visiting from out of town & boy, did they feel at home. I'm often curious as to why this restaurant draws a much mature crowd than other restaurants in the Burbs. Anyway...
All of us enjoyed our delicious meal, especially the seafood risotto! My goodness what a fabulous entree! I'd like to mention the excellent service we received, thanks Kelley! We'll be back! Boston Strong!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Dayla's. We had passed by many times, since we frequent the ice cream place next door (Bedford Farm's.) When we arrived, the restaurant was quite empty at 6.30pm. Greeted nicely and felt the service was good and not too imposing. We had drinks, I ordered a prix fixe option and my spouse ordered a burger and salad. All of the food was excellent. Especially the seafood risotto and oddly, his burger. It was huge and juicy and seriously perfectly cooked, which always seems hard to get in a made-to-order burger these days...at least for us! I would go back.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMa great place for speciala great place for special occasions with friends or family. one of my top three favorite places.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Go To Restaurant - DELICIOUSDelicious and relaxing evening at Dalya's Restaurant. On a whim I made a reservation, as the restaurant is near where we live. We were very happy with the experience. The food was delicious, I had an 8 oz sirloin that was cooked to perfection, the au gratin potatoes were uniquely cooked and delicious. My husband had the seafood risotto and it was creamy and cooked to perfection, the chunks of lobster meat along with the shrimp and scallops added the perfect gourmet touch. We had the crab cake and corn and lobster chowder as an appetizer, and the melding of flavors was superb.
Great restaurant, we will be back to try the other items on the menu!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendedWe've returned to Dalya's many times.

As usual, it did not disappoint. The food was outstanding; the service was both friendly and efficient, and our group of seven thoroughly enjoyed itself. Dalya's is pricey, but not unreasonably so for special occasions, and you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommend.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here thanks toFirst time here thanks to seeing it as part of restaurant week in Boston. Always looking to try a new place and not being from the area (would never have known about Dalya's otherwise) and not wanting to go into Boston this fit the bill with a menu with more choices and ample parking than other restaurants. Service was very good and attentive. We'd return and I'd recommend Dalya's.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've lived in the area forWe've lived in the area for 18 years, but have never been.

The ambiance is very romantic and also wonderful for a group of people (have done retirement parties here and never disappoints!). The food is excellent! I would give it a 5+! Our server, Kelley, was attentive, but not hovering. Her suggestions and attention was perfect and she was correct everytime. We have been here for lunch and it was the first time for supper. We are also looking to schedule another dinner after the Easter rush and will bring friends. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant! Truly elegant.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent night out atAn excellent night out at Dalya's this past week. Having not been there in many years I was initially taken back thinking it looked crowded and would be noisy and congested. Fortunately, I was wrong, everything was excellent including the service.
