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.

    The original Tapas restaurant in Boston is still a charismatic and unique dining spot, well suited for special occasions. Flavorful classic tapas selection with an enticing selection of cocktails and wines.

    Fantastic tapas and desserts, great drinks, great vibe. Terrible flavorless paella, though - my recommendation is to skip the paella. (Weird exception to the rest of their food.) Will be back!

    Dahli is my most favorite restaurant in the area. The service, the food, the atmosphere is the superb! Great selection of tapas, fabulous beverages, and the tapas always come out fast, fresh, hot. You can tell nothing sits around in the kitchen and that everything is cooked fresh with quality ingredients. Their prices are also very reasonable. For me, there is no second best exclamation Dali is the best! It’s a great place to take a friend or relative for a birthday-they put on quite the celebration! They truly appreciate their customers.

    Food was great, the place is very loud and energetic. They sang happy Anniversary to us and it was sweet. Some food takes longer to come out so you may want to check if you’re ordering a dish that could take a while when you order.

    Everything was wonderful. Food came out timely and delicious. We had 4 adults (one vegan) and a toddler. All left completely stuffed and satisfied. The atmosphere is energizing, like you're being invited into a special house party... completely engaging from the time you walk through the front door. Staff service and enthusiasm are off the charts. Can't wait to returnl!

    Fantastic and authentic Spanish tapas in a fun, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. This place is a gem that’s been around for decades and simply has no equal in New England. As good as the food is though, and it’s really good, the staff at Dali are the secret ingredient. They all add so much to the overall experience and make everyone feel special.

    The place is cool and has a nice vibe. The wait staff is very friendly. The sangria was great. The food was mediocre. Also I asked about gluten free dishes and wasn’t given their GF menu until after we had one round of tapas.

    This was such a great spot! I have been wanting to eat at Dali for years and am sad I've waited for so long, it is now a new favourite. My partner and I ate their vegetarian and had no problem filling up our table with all types of delicious plates! Will absolutely be back. The staff also do a wonderful birthday cheer FYI ;)

    My girlfriend and I have been here many times for dates, social gatherings and nice dinners with family. No matter the occasion, Dali has always been a 10/10 experience and leaves us smiling. Julio has helped us several times and he brings the best energy we could hope; with him, Dali feels like home! Highly recommend the absinthe.

    Always a favorite, we hadn't been back to Dali for at lease six years. The place looks the same, but why would they change? The place has been decorated well for the 25+ years I've been going there. The variety of tapas are terrific though there apparently our waiter had some confusion about our order. The first of three tapas ordered came out very quickly, but the other two hadn't arrived when our entrée was brought out. I questioned it and not long afterwards they came out. That was a letdown. So was the fact that each of us ordered dessert. Mine came out quickly but when the bill was presented not long afterwards, we asked about the other two desserts. Again, our waiter screwed up. We enjoyed sharing those two 5-10 minutes later.
