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.

    This is the best restaurant in the world. Food is absolutely delicious, decor is somewhere between eclectic and outrageous, service is charming — and attentive to dietary restrictions. Júlio will take good care of you whether he is tending bar or serving tables. We hardly ever venture beyond the wide variety of tapas. Excellent selection of wines, sherries, ports, and both original and traditional cocktails.

    We had a good dining experience at Dali. The service was very good, the food was delicious,. It was a little noisy inside, but not as bad as some other places we frequent. The desserts were very good. We also enjoyed the Sangria we had. The price of the Tapas dishes we had also seems very reasonable. All-in-all, we has a nice time at Dali.

    Dali is everything I remembered it to be - great food and a fun environment. It’s many years since I’ve been here since I no longer live in the area. When my dear friends suggested Dali I was excited to return. Thank you for a great evening.

    We've dined at Dali several times. It's a terrific funky tapas and sangria place. The most recent visit was for a law school graduation for our son. Dali was fun, festive, funky....and delicious as always. The service is on top of it and very gracious and we had three rounds of small plate selections brought to us promptly; everything was hot and perfectly prepared. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic place, Dali is not that. It is busy and can be raucous and loud but in a good way. Everyone is having fun. Except for the 80 year old couple seated next to our table of five, which was one among many in the restaurant. If you want quiet and sedate, this is not that.

    The food is terrific. The service was quite capable and thoughtful. The ambience in the room was destroyed by the extraordinarily high level of noise created by the patrons. Your highest level in this survey suggests that it’s a energetic noise level when it’s extremely high. No, it’s worse than that its ear damaging stuff. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone for Friday night or weekend dinner.

    We’ve been to Dali before. Always a good time. It’s a must go if you’re visiting the Somerville/Medford area of Massachusetts just outside of Boston. The food is fantastic. Service is outstanding. Decor is fun, eclectic and true to the name - Dali. And, price is more than reasonable. We were celebrating our daughter’s graduation so we started with a glass of Cava for each - Very good. We had several rounds of Tapas. I have to say that many of the Tapas were so good I forgot to take pictures until we were almost done eating them. Most notable: The ham was melt in your mouth good. The Potatoes Gravas were as good as what we had in Madrid and the Saffron Rice reminded us of an excellent Paella. The chorizo was the best I have ever had. I also highly recommend trying the red wine flight. Excellent value for 4 really good wines. Lastly, the service was wonderful MJ our waiter was really good, the host (unfortunately I did not get his name) was outstanding and the bartender (Julio) was even better. A really wonderful time. I highly recommend Dali.

    We had fond memories of great meals at Dalis when we lived nearby. When we went recently after many years, we realized that sometimes you should not try to relive the past. Atmosphere was as fun as ever but food wasn't as great as our recollection. The sangria did live up to expectations. I was sad to see the usual gorgeous bouquets of flowers in the bathrooms were no longer on display although completely understandable given necessary cost cutting. Our sever was pleasant but she had to return three times in order to finally get our correct check to us, we got a cc belonging to another patron, then we got the wrong check and finally on the 3rd attempt we got both the correct check and cc back. We were there pretty early so her section wasn't full. We put it down to just a bad day but it was annoying to then have to keep checking our bank account u til we saw the correct charges come in. We would still recommend Dalis as a good experience for folks new to this style of restaurant.

    Dali was one of our absolute favorite restaurants when living in Cambridge 20 years ago. Visiting Boston for the weekend our #1 “to do” Sorry for calling you was have dinner at Dali and it did not disappoint. The ambiance, the sangria, the food all were just as we remembered. It’s a happy place. Such a great destination for just about any occasion!
