Had a wonderful night at Dali to celebrate my birthday. The food and atmosphere were great. I come here a lot for special occasions because it’s just consistently a great spot. It all feels really authentic - and one of the best parts is the service. You come here and they don’t rush you and just let you enjoy your night. It’s also nice that it’s a little tucked away because it feels like a hidden gem. Can’t wait to come back again soon.

Wonderful ambiance; great diversity of very good and well-prepared foods in manageable sized plates that are shared by all; excellent and friendly wait staff that lets you enjoy yourself for 3+ hours. For me, the only down side is that it is - and always has been - very noisy.

Best tapas outside of Seville and Barcelona!! My go to restaurant when I visit Boston (used to live there and miss it dearly). It is always outstanding. Was there on a Monday night. Not too busy at 6:30; by 7:30 packed!!

Some dishes were INCREDIBLE and others were basic. My suggestion is to go for things with interesting ingredients and nix the shrimp that everyone raves about - it’s just garlic shrimp. Go for the saffron scallops x2 - AMAZING!!!!

Amazing, authentic food at Dali that was highly delicious and enjoyable. These plates are small though, they are true tapas. We initially ordered 6 between two people and were still left a bit hungry, so be warned that you may need to keep ordering! Great restaurant, would go back.

Dali Restaurant and Tapas Bar is a visit to Andalucía. The tile work at the bar and the table tops is exquisite as is the rest of the decor-most of which is Spanish in origin. The food was delicious - all our favorite tapas: tortilla española, cheeses, jamón, empanadas, etc. And some new discoveries - crepe filled with eggplant, grilled pear, melon, goat cheese and jamón Kebabs. Excellent wine and beer selection and coffee beverages. Our waiter, Gustavo, was efficient and charming. The entire staff was welcoming. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

For a while I had been looking forward to visiting Dali. I had heard wonders about this place. Tapas and drinks were great. Unfortunately I can't say the same about the service and the paella valenciana. Yolanda B. was our server. I had to ask her twice to bring us water. Our drinks came out before she finally filled our glasses with water. When the food came out she never came around to check on us and see how the food was. At the end when we were done with our food we expressed our dissatisfaction with the paella. It barely had any seafood or flavor. I was shocked at her response. She simply said "that's too bad" and cleared the table. There was never an apology or anything. I'm very disappointed with my experience at Dali and I don't think I'll be going back.

What a fabulous evening! This was our second time at Dali and were even more impressed than the first time. Wonderful service and the staff was so accommodating of our infant (we did let them know in advance that we wanted a space for his car seat). Never was he seen as a nuisance. The food was nothing short of delicious, too. I highly recommend the duck, beef tenderloin, queso miel, and paella. The churros with dulce de Leche are to die for. The sangria was perfect, too. We will be back many a time after consistently great food and service!

We had high hopes for dinner at Dali. The initial welcome was warm and the staff was nice. When my husband expressed concern about his drink not being made well, the waiter took notice but did nothing. At the end, the drink got charged on the bill which we paid for and later went to the manager to mention very humbly, that this is not the way that cocktail is made and served. Upon this the manager was very rude and said that he knows what he is doing and doesn't need suggestions. The food was fine, not exceptional, but we are not going to this place ever again.

Dali was outstanding on every front. We ordered about 12 different dishes, and each one was superb. No disappointments. Everything was hot and fresh and incredibly tasty. There are many vegetarian options to choose from. One of my all time favorites is the spinach with browned garlic and pine nuts. It is the best spinach you will ever eat. Other highlights were stuffed artichokes, eggplant crepe, and scallops. No, actually, everything was a highlight. I don't know how they manage to deliver so much good food to the table so quickly and flawlessly. Our server was lovely and attentive. Festive atmosphere with lots of birthday celebrations. Refreshing sangria. Looking forward to going back soon!

My family of 3 had at least 9 different dishes and they were all shaired and all great. The last time I was there was over 20 years ago and it was fantastic then and is fantastic now. At 5:45 on Saturday the on street parking was surprisingly easy. It's too bad I'm a half hour away.

Dali is almost perfect. The food is sublime, and the service is terrific. The noise level, however, in the back room is a bit out of hand. It would never stop us from going back again and again.

Another wonderful meal at this truly original Camberville classic. One of those places where it pays to take your waiter’s advice because he’s been working there for years and he knows what you want better than you do. Favorite dishes: chorizo with onions and butter beans, braised beef short rib, bacalao croquettes, and, for the love of all that is holy, take MY advice and have the octopus. Already looking forward to our next visit!

Celebrating our sister’s birthday at Dali was perfect and a memorable one from beginning to end. Greeted with smiles and amazing hospitality. The fun and decorative atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Spain. Our waiter Gustaf was excellent and made my sister feel very special. We enjoyed delicious tapas and with the best red sangria!
Our overall experience was amazing and can’t wait to return!

Love Dali!
We visit every few month, as we crave their hospitality, colorful ambiance and flavors! Dali delivers every time. Sunday evening , dinner with the family has an added pleasure from the warm , witty service. Food prepared and beautifully served at a peak of freshness and flavor. Variety of tapas would satisfy any finicky gourmand.
This time garlic soup and prunes stuffed with cheese and almonds left a delightful lingering memory. mmmm delicious!

I've been going to Dali since it opened 30 years ago. It has always been my favorite restaurant. When you're there, you're not in Boston/Cambridge anymore. Because of the wonderful and authentic atmosphere, friendly staff, and delicious food, one is transported fully. Dali is my go-to for special occasions and whenever possible in general!
