Consistently good food with a caring, efficient and professional staff. One of our favorite restaurants. Even visiting family members look forward to returning there!

The only reason I gave a 4
The only reason I gave a 4 for food was that the calamari was good but below the very high expectations I had since it is known to be their specialty.

Delicious fresh seafood, well
Delicious fresh seafood, well prepared and reasonably priced, in an unpretentious setting with friendly service. The chef was happy to prepare my scallops sans garlic, even though garlic is a main ingredient in most dishes here. Scrumptious! Just remember to bring cash...

When deciding to go to The Daily Catch, the main objective is to have excellent food at a reasonable price. That reality is true, athough the lobster fra diavolo sounds expensive, it feeds two quite well, in fact, finger-licking good. It's loaded with lobster, mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and linguini, all in a spicy red sauce. I can't think of a better dish.

Overall good experience
Have gone to other locations but this was the first time here. Only reservation was at 9:30 pm. However the place was empty when we got there. Food was decent. I had the halibut special. Presentation was very good and flavor decent. My boyfriend has the fried seafood platter and it was pretty good. Nothing to write home about but not bad. Wines by the glass were okay too.

Excellent food and good service.
Excellent food and good service. When the weather is warm, outside dining offers an excellent view of the harbor. Prices are fair and portions are generous.

Excellent Sicilian style seafood
Excellent Sicilian style seafood restaurant that serves very fresh fish all the time. The outdoor dining with its harbor views makes it especially nice in the warm weather. And the reservations always guarantees you a seat!

The black pasta is fantastic.
The black pasta is fantastic. Too few employees for the number of customers.

SO glad we went
Warm, caring service. Every one of our four different entrees was spectacular. We had swordfish vinaigrette; monkfish marsala; pasta with scallops; shrimp, and broccoli; and a halibut on spinach special. A bottle of "Rustico" Prosecco was reasonably priced. Even though our table did not have much of a view, just glimpsing the harbor view was a treat.

Slice of Seafood Heaven!
A coworker and I went to the Daily Catch for lunch on a beautiful Thursday afternoon. She ordered a Caesar Salad with seared scallops on top and it looked delish; she was very pleased with it and ate the entire salad! I opted for one of the lunch specials of the day, it was a Salmon Panini with roasted peppers, spinach and some sort of mayo based, yet thin sauce, all on a perfectly toasted garlicky bread. I must say that it was AMAZING! The waiter was charming and the view was outstanding. I would definitely go back to the Daily Catch again & again!

Always happy at TDC
Been eating here back when they were located at Northen Av and each time we leave happy. I usually eat the black pasta puttanesca because I love it so much, but this time we shared the lobster Fra Diabolo and it was AMAZING.
Service is always friendly and attentive, managers even more so. A place not to miss and to keep returning!

Not much ambiance inside but
Not much ambiance inside but outside seating overlooking the harbor was great. Food was very good but portion of scallops in the fried scallop plate was measly. Only served 4 scallops and the rest was fries. Restaurant should be more generous with the fish portion. After all, it is a seafood restaurant! On the plus side, our waiter was marvelous!

The Seaport area provides a scenic walk to help digest the great bread, appetizers, and entrees. The wine selection was limited but the drinks went well with the bread, calamari, and oysters. Everyone in the group had something different. Whether it was shrimp and pasta, salmon, or surf and turf (crab n fillet); everyone enjoyed their meal. The waitress was attentive and helpful if a selection or special was not available. It was early so inside seating was quiet.

Best Seafood in Boston
Great Seafood and Pasta plus one of the best views of the city!

What a wonderful experience!
What a wonderful experience! Louie, the server, was attentive and the food was terrific. We were a party of 7, joyfully celebrating my daughter's graduation and were probably a tad difficult to manage. That didn't impede Louie and team from attentively caring for us. I called in advance to ask if a specific item was on the menu and was told while it was not a standard, the chef would be consulted and the item would be ordered for the day of our reservation. Sure enough, the most delicious RI oysters were listed as the daily special and my daughter was able to enjoy the only thing she asked for for graduation! Thank you Daily Catch!!

Top-notch Seaport dining experience
My boyfriend and I were very excited to try this outpost of a Boston staple. It was a bit chilly so we got a table inside by the window and still had a great view of the harbor. The service was excellent and our food (monkfish medallions and black pasta) was tasty and unique. They also had a great selection of local craft brews on tap and in bottles, which was a pleasant surprise. Will definitely be back there to eat on the awesome patio in summer!

Day Manager and some times
Day Manager and some times chef, Doug Pollander does a fantastic job of making every guest feel like family. The food is fresh and delicious; the view across the water is the perfect accompaniment to the seafood. Will definitely be back!

Delicious Sicilian seafood
We started with the Sicilian fish stew -- scrumptious -- then everyone else got a pasta dish. Clams, stuffed calamari, swordfish with black pasta -- all good. I had grilled scallops and shrimp with vegetables (asparagus, zucchini, tomato) delicious. We did not get apps this time but loads of good items on the menu. Our waiter, Sumner, was great. He helped with our wine and menu selections. He recommended the calamari appetizer and we will be sure to get it next time. The desserts are varied and our chocolate something (forget right now) was out of this world. The view across the harbor to Rowes Wharf is very enchanting. Going back in two weeks.

I was looking for a nice place to bring a large group of friends and family for graduation. My father is in the food business and rather picky to please with food and restaurants in general but I had hope for the Daily Catch since it pride's itself in being family owned and serving only the freshest seafood. I was not disappointed and neither was my dad, which I realized when he ordered a second round of the mussels for appetizers. There was a large assortment of dishes around the table but everyone was fully satisfied after their meal. It was a wonderful experience from the food to the staff, who were willing to go outside in the rain and try and flag down a cab for my parents.

Great night on the waterfront
Beautiful view of the city on a perfect night to be eating outside. Food was very good. Halibut special was delicious. Pan of linguini and shrimp was great. We were able to take our time as the evening went on, enjoying the food and the sights. Well worth a trip on a nice night. Inside seemed a bit small, but the food would still be good.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view is stunning, the service was great, and the food was amazing - two words: aglio olio. My only complaint? We were told the shrimp were big...yeah no, quite small, but still tasty! Highly recommend this place, and can't wait to go back!

Worth a Try
My first time to DC. A business lunch with a colleague from Switzerland so a New England seafood experience was important. We all had the "black pasta" which was better than advertised. We each had different choices and all were excellent. The service was great; Molly was a gem as well. It was a beautiful day although hot. The breeze off the harbor funneled through the covered patio which kept the temperature down. Good jazz was playing on the sound system. I had made a 1 o'clock reservation, mid-week, so crowding and noise were not an issue but might be at other times and days. All and all, it was a great experience and I will be back.

A good meal in a great spot
Best black pasta dishes in Boston area and best Caesar salad ( anchovies in dressing as they should be!).
Excellent food and wonderful atmosphere - open air but under cover with great views of Boston Harbor, evening sky, lots of activity along the waterfront.

Awesome food, and good view
The food was awesome, especially black pasta with calamari and clams. Clam chowder was thick and very tasty!! I love the food at this restaurant. Only on thing that I was disappointed was the workers there... The service was not bad, but servers (waiters/waitresses) looked so unhappy, didn't smile much...
But I highly recommend this place if you like seafood and want to enjoy ocean view :)
Also it was kids friendly, so good for family. But probably not romantic date place.

Tasty and scenic
We sat outside and was able to view the scenic waterfront that surrounds the Daily Catch Seaport. Our dinner was wonderful. Starting with the calamari appetizer and caesar salad. My husband and I shared the Lobster Fra Diavolo for two. The dish had plenty of fresh seafood, clams, muscles, shrimp, calamari and a full lobster. The pasta and sauce was light with a kick of spice. The lemoncello cake was to die for. I have never been disappointed with our meals at the Daily Catch.

Sicilian Seafood at its best
Located on the water, casual atmosphere and the best seafood in Boston!

Reasonably priced good food
Pasta dishes were good. Seafood cooked appropriately. Reasonably priced for the city of Boston. No complains.

Great food at The Daily Catch
Six of us recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Daily Catch Seaport in Boston. The selections were all great and each of us really liked our meals. It was also great to be able to sit outside and look at the seaport.

Served right in the pan, seafood is fresh and the dishes burst with flavor!

Squid Ink pasta with a view
we had the squid ink pasta as well as the clams casino and tuna steak. everything was outstanding, including the view and our attentive servers. You can tell that this place is well managed - I would highly recommend.

Top notch place for brunch. Casual atmosphere and excellent service. Hannah was a superior service person and made us feel great even with a baby as one of the guests. My guests had the pris fixe omelets. Mushroom leeks and the American cheese were the favorites. All adored the cinnamon pastry. I ordered the salmon benedict. Over the top delicious. They let me sub fries for the brunch potatoes, and they were way better than most others I've ever had. Bloody Mary's also very tasty. I'm not a big brunch fan in general, but this one was what all brunches should emulate.

If you like fresh tasty fish,
If you like fresh tasty fish, simply prepared, and want a lovely view of the waterfront, this is your place. The only downside was the parking. Parking lots in the area are $17.

Good Food, good Time.
We had a party of 6 and everyone had a very good meal. We arrived early without 2 of our party, and they didn't seem to care about our reservation, but got us the table we wanted right away. We had to wait for 20 min for the last of our party, but the service was excellent and we got the drinks going and they kept checking back. The food was great, fancy (specials) to plain (Fish & Chips) all were good. They added 20% tip to the bill, which I didn't mind, because we got excellent service, but I didn't see the notice about this on the menu. We spent about $50 / person. I would go back.
