    I live in Northern Virginia but travel to Boston frequently to attend sporting events and always make sure I get to Daily Catch. Been there twice in three weeks. The food is always outstanding (Especially the Lobster Fra Diavlo), as is the service. The last two times my guest and I had Danielle as our server. She is the best.

    Never miss a chance to order the Black Pasta Aglio e Olio when I come here. Easier to bring guests to this location when we don't have time to wait for the more traditional experience over on Hanover.

    The service was excellent. Melissa was very knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions about the food and drinks. Everything we ordered was excellent! We started with the calamari which was fried perfectly, taste and texture was excellent and the warm tomato sauce for dipping was really good. We shared a Caesar salad that was really good. I did have to ask for the anchovies we ordered, they didn’t come out with the salad. Two of us had fish and chips. The fish was really fresh and cooked perfectly. Fries were also cooked perfectly. Everything tasted great!! My brother in law had the Aglio Olio with shrimp. He said it was really good, and enjoyed eating all of it. My other brother in law had the ciopinno and loved every bit of it. It was his 75th birthday, so he thoroughly enjoyed Tiramisu for dessert. It was fabulous!

    Sat at the bar with a friend. Bartender was excellent. Willing to make an interesting drink based on my request to have low carb/skinny drink. He combined expresso infused vodka with Spicy Vodka. Came out great. Shared a tomato salad based on bartender recommendation. Was excellent. We then shared a lobster Fra Diavolo for one with clams, muscles, octopus and pasta. That was delicious. It was a perfect amount of food for the two of us.

    I sat at the bar - great bartender who made me a fantastic low carb ghost Tequila drink. I had the tuna and it was prepared perfectly. Rare in the middle and slightly seared with a delicious sauce and some greens so I didn't need to order a salad. Perfect dinner!

    Overall a great experience however we were seated outside on the patio. There were heaters and a roof but there were no sides so the wind made it hard to be consistently warm. Had I know there were not sides out there I would not have booked it. Certainly fine on a warmer night but not when it is in the 40s. Seems that the portions may be less then our last visit but certainly plenty.
