Spanish
Owners Mario Leon and Tamara Bourso introduced traditional Spanish cuisine with a Dali twist to Boston in 1989 and the concept of pairing/sharing tapas quickly spread throughout the restaurant community. Dali offers a full liquor bar with Sangria, original/vintage Cocktails, and Bottoms Up Shots. The interior is personalized with quirky decor such as the Crying Gold Wall, Lost & Found Clothesline, and a LED Interactive Table that cozily seats 6-10 convivial guests.

Reservations available Wednesday thru Sunday from 5:30 to 10 and we invite you for a memorable evening.

    As always, Dalí delights for a birthday celebration. The noise level was SUPER high this time because of a boisterous 6-top in the main dining room, and after they cleared out it was still lively, but that's all part of the vibe at this restaurant. Highly recommend!

    I have been to Dali once before and loved it, but sat on the patio that time. Inside was a much different experience. The decor and cozy atmosphere that was presented was beautiful. The food was great, although the baked goat cheese was not as amazing as it was during my prior experience (watery, not much actual cheese?) However, the noise level was so high (two anniversaries and two birthday celebrations with singing and tamborines) that I’m not sure I would choose to come back for the same experience. Also, our table had to be physically moved in the middle of dining to accomodate another party that “showed up with an extra person” which was very uncomfortable. As a former waitress myself, please attempt to treat your respectful customers with more grace. Thank you!

    The food came out right away and was already prepared. Some things were not hot. It seemed like they wanted us in an out. I have been going to Dali for 20 years and love it. This was my first disappointing experience.

    A not so hidden gem in Somerville, close to Davis. Authentic, great variety of Spanish tapas, there should be something for everybody - the vegearian, meat lover or anything inbetween. Pork tenderloin in mashroom/blue cheese sauce was delishious, the fried cauliflower/brokkoli puffs awesome as usual, love their Baked Goat Cheese with Tomato & Basil with a slice of their bread etc. So many items to mix and match, many things still to try. Would bring anybody visiting Boston here for the atmosphere, food and service.

    My friends took me to Dali for my birthday. My daughter and I have been there in the past, but my friends were new to the restaurant. The food was fantastic, the service exceptional, and we had a wonderful time. My smallest critique would be how loud it was which made hearing each other difficult. We will all certainly return.

    we had been here before and had a good time, last time we had tapas (always good choice) and had 3, 2 of them fantastic, shrimp and beef, one the marinated olives seemed as were not marinated for long and were super hard and no marinated taste. the sangria and wines were great, so were the desserts, but the paellas were not, not very tasty or fresh. the rice was old and dry, the seafood paella rice was burned at the bottom, had one piece if everything was supposed to have (i.e. one shrimp, one scallop, etc.) for the price, overprice. the traditional paella was also dry and old and had barely or none of the meats it was supposed to have. Overall, this time was a tossed out, we will go again but were not entirely satisfied.

    Dali is one of my favorite places to dine. Love the food and the atmosphere. Service is always so good-from the warm greeting to the swift greeting of your server, to making suggestions about the varied menu, refilling glasses and generally keeping track of your needs I have never had a service fail. Trying not to order everything of the menu is the hardest choice! Delicious food means you can’t go wrong and I love their Sangria that perfectly matches your food selections. Dali’s is always a great choice for any day or any special day choice of where to dine.
