I brought my triathlete vegan nephew to Dali. They were incredibly helpful in finding him vegan dishes on their menu, and also asking the chef to make vegetarian dishes vegan. Well and beyond their normal level of great service and wonderful food.

Everything at Dali is outstanding. I've only eaten out on the patio, but the food is fantastic, the service superlative, the ambiance terrific.

I particular commend Murad for his exceptional service. He is always attentive, thoughtful, helpful, and generally delightful as a person.

All of their tapas are delicious with unique flavors. The shrimp, calamari and scallops are a favorite accompanied with the spinach tapas.
The ambiance is fun and festive and the sangria is great!

Had the octopus, chicken kabob, tenderloin tostada with chimichuri, olives, vegetable turnover.

Everything with the exception of the olives was extremely under seasoned and had no flavor.

The bartender was really nice, and took the steak of the bill but took a long time to check on us.

Dali’s has such a great variety of small plates-all creative, interesting and delicious. You can mix and match plates that provide a satisfying meal or accompaniment to creative cocktails or a glass or bottle from their lists of a variety of wines and beers. Noise levels are subdued allowing easy conversation. The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable. And the decorations set the mood for fun and conversation. Worth keeping on your list of fun/ food/ and atmosphere list.

We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with a trip to Dali, the site of our first dinner date over 20 years ago. Traffic was awful driving in from Metrowest area on Friday night, but the host was kind enough to save our table for an extra 20 minutes. The food was amazing. Everything tasted just like we remembered. The server was very kind and paced the tapas in a way that we always had room for another plate! We finished the night with a chocolate mousse and an anniversary serenade by the staff. Perfect night. Thank you Dali!

Highly recommended, & highly recommend. We started out with suggestions from the waitress. And then ventured into the unknown. Everything was good. Certainly try the garlic shrimp and the potatoes. Tapas requires alot of foot work and the service was outstanding. The red Sangria was the perfect complement- not too sweet. So much enjoyed just getting out again.

We sat outside and loved it. The tables are spaced nicely and they had cute half umbrellas. The food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly. We didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed our sangria and a cafe con leche afterwards. A lovely meal!

Dali is incredible. Time and time again I dine here and am blown away by the service and the food. My boyfriend and I always come for our special occasions (birthdays, anniversary’s, etc) and they always make us feel special and welcomed. On our anniversary they sang to us and gave us the most romantic table! 100000/10!

My wife and I had our first valentine's date at Dali... so many years later, we brought our kids who loved it too. The outside dining area is great, spacious and fun. Despite a very brief rain drizzle, we enjoyed all of the dishes. Highly recommend Dali.

Probably my favorite place to eat in the Boston area - fun ambience and great food. Not cheap, so not somewhere I go often. But great for a special occasion
