I’d long heard amazing things about Dali and can hands down say this is the best restaurant I’ve ever visited nit just in Boston but in all of Massachusetts.

The ambiance itself was second to none, and the food itself so varied, creative, and flavorful in ways beyond the expected. The rabbit dish blew us away but everything we touched was exquisite!

However, all this was made truly unforgettable thanks to an amazing staff from the minute we stepped through the wooden double doors. Yoli was so kind, vibrant, and helpful in every single way and truly helped make this experience one to remember always!

Don’t dally, go to Dali!

Who knew Dali had an outdoor patio? Well, now you do - and you should go before winter hits.

Same great food, drinks and service - just outdoors.

The food was outstanding. We ate outside, the outdoor area is very pleasant; it was a little chilly but the heat lamps really worked. I can’t say enough about how nice and competent the waitstaff are. It was a great evening, I’m looking forward to going back.

I am so happy with our visit to Dali! We had a very attentive server, the atmosphere was great (under a little half-umbrella at our table for 2 and with a romantic soft light), the drinks were perfect, and the food was outstanding. We're pescatarian and it was so easy to find lots of different tapas to try - my favorite were the queso de cabra and the vieiras al azafran! Definitely planning to go again!!

Dali is a favorite of ours, but we hadn't been since things got locked down. It's wonderful to see what a great job they are doing during this difficult time. The quality of their food has not slipped one bit, and their service is still warm and friendly. They've done an excellent job of spacing out their restaurant as well as providing outside seating. Dali is an institution in this neighborhood, and I hope that they weather this time and go on for a very very long time to come.

As with most traditional tapas I've had, one of whose purposes is to sell booze, the food here is lively and tasty but quite salty in general. Unlike most traditional tapas, the servings are generous to a fault. Servers were pleasant and eager, and the space was as quirkily charming as ever.

Our food was good for the most part, not sure if the fryer needed to be cleaned or something but all the deep fried food tasted a little bitter. Especially dissapointing with the churros. Our service was poor, it took 20 minutes to get a glass of water after we were seated. Another table being served by the same waiter got up and left because the waiter never came and took an order for so long.

Absolute gem of a restaurant! The food makes you feel as though you’re in Spain. Perfect for date night, with a large group (pre-COVID) or to treat yourself! During COVID, their precautions made me feel safe. They had outdoor patio seating in the back and it was nice. They brought out cool lights when it got darker.

Dali is always a wonderful experience, in part because of the excellent food (the garlic shrimp and the deep-fried chicken croquettes are special favorites of mine) and delicious vintage cocktails (try Aviation). Plus, the waitstaff are always courteous, even courtly. Two takes were having birthday celebrations the night I was at Dali with a friend recently -- there's a reason that people choose Dali for celebrations -- birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine's Day!

This was the best dining experience we’ve had since the pandemic began. They take the guidelines seriously, and dining here felt safe and relaxed, with tables spaced much farther apart than just the bare minimum. Their new patio provides the same cozy atmosphere as the interior, and the food and wait staff were amazing!

Been coming here for over a year now and it's now my favorite restaurant.

Everything about this place is awesome. The food, the atmosphere, the staff, and the experience as a whole! The waiters and waitresses go over the top to make sure that you have the best time. The flavors are out of this world, like nothing you've had before. It's the closest you can get to Spain while being in Boston.

I highly recommend them! Please support this family owned business! They've taken a major hit with the pandemic and it's one of the best places around.

We have been coming to Dali for over 30 years and it never fails to meet our highest expectations. There are now a great number of Tapas style restaurant restaurants in the Boston area but none come close for authenticity, high caliber of food and service. Bravo!
