Our server Amanda was so nice and explained any questions we had. They were blasting Caribbean music the whole time that we were there which was definitely unexpected but appreciated. Definitely recommend but warning all meals are about $30!!

This Daily Catch location is small and cozy and strict Covid precautions are in place with each table completely sectioned off by plastic from others (which was fantastic to see). The small staff of three was very pleasant and friendly. Our food was simply phenomenal. The pasta is made in house and the seafood super fresh, like it was caught that day! We ordered the fried calamari with a house made sauce as an appetizer, two Aglio Olio black pasta dishes with scallops (a white bolognese with crumbled calamari, olive oil, fresh garlic and parsley made with fresh homemade black squid ink linguine), Alfredo black pasta with shrimp (homemade black squid ink linguine in a traditional cream sauce reduction with butter and romano), a side of linguine and cream sauce and a side of fries. Every dish was beyond incredible and the table was even raving about how crispy and delicious the fries were! All portions were plentiful and the service was excellent. I highly recommend The Daily Catch Brookline and can't wait to come back!

Service is ok given there were only 3 employees: cook, host/waiter and the dishwasher. We ordered the $27 calamari appetizer listed on the menu as “famous for 27 years”. They give you a huge portion but it looked like they could have changed the oil as they were all fried to a brown and lacked taste. The squid ink pasta w ground calamari was good. The fried scallop platter with fries again was brown. It was just ok. Certainly not as good as years past and definitely overpriced.

The clam appetizer was the best I've had in Boston and the pasta was so divine. The prices weren't bad either. I didn't catch our server's name but she was so so friendly. It was my first time there and I'll be back again - with friends!
