If you want a real experience at the Daily Catch go to the one in the North End......

Only good thing about the Seaport location is the view, they’ll make a reservation and they take credit cards.

That said the food was OK. When I told them my shrimp was over cooked...... no solution other than I’m sorry

We came here to celebrate a special occasion and despite the TERRIBLE weather, we had a lovely, cozy evening with excellent food and ever better service. The team at Daily Catch knew we were celebrating so they paid us special attention which was 100% not necessary but 100% appreciated. Just sweet people serving good food with a great view (even from inside during pouring rain). We'll be back!

Food very disappointing. Only fried calamari app was good. Black pasta was decent, but we ordered shrimp as an addition an got 3 overcooked shrimp for $9. Tuna vinegarette was bizarre. Decent sized tuna steak with heavy, black balsamic vinegar reduction, which completely masked and overwhelmed the fish. Will not be back.

Food was amazing! The scents from the kitchen caught you as you walked in. Great ambience. Ben amazing waiter and Louie quite gracious. Little Neck Clams from RI WERE OUTSTANDING. Swordfish perfectly cooked. And Cappuccino the best.

The fish portions were small. Being in Boston, I had hoped to have some fresh fish. I got the idea that nothing was fresh. Our server was very vague. The clam chowder was like broth - not the best clam chowder we've had. The calamari meatballs were interesting - worth trying since they are unique. Our server was very friendly.

We were very disappointed with our experience. We have wanted to try The Daily Catch in the North End for a while, but we were staying in the Seaport area and were able to walk to The Daily Catch Seaport, so decided to try it. We should have ubered to the North End. They don't offer cocktails as they have only a cordial license. I ordered a vodka citron on the rocks that was sickeningly sweet. Absolut Citron is one of my "go to drinks" and I have never had this issue anywhere else. I feel it should have been disclosed to me that this wasn't a normal vodka citron. My husband would have loved a martini, but settled for a glass of wine. The bread that was brought to the table was stale. The lobster/crab cakes that we had for an appetizer were the best part of our meal. I had grilled swordfish with seasonal vegetables for my main course. It was absolutely terrible. The fish had no flavor whatsoever and the vegetables were overcooked. My husband's pasta dish was better than my meal, but nothing at all special. I was still hungry because i had only picked at my $28 dinner, so I wanted dessert. They were out of the warm gingerbread sundae that I wanted, so we got a bowl of gelato. It was a very tiny serving for the price. My advice: don't go! There are many, many wonderful restaurants in Boston where you can get a delicious meal and not feel ripped off.

I used to go to the original Daily Catch on Hanover Street years ago but it's always so hard to get into that small place, and then the one across from Jimmy's until the redevelopment of that area. Food was always special if you love Italian style seafood - including their special dishes, Lobster Fra Diavolo which is loaded with different seafood and a flavor fest, Monk Fish marsala, which, if you've not had Monk fish or even if you have like me, this dish is a killer! I prefer their "served in the pan" dishes- any of them! The sauce is dead on, chowders really flavorful. Can't miss here. I was so psyched that the food was as good as when I used to visit. I'll be back soon. Keep it up guys and please don't change..............

The food was pretty good, but not really hot. The service was not very good at all. I specifically told the waitress I need to eat gluten free (as my reservation indicated) but she still brought the appetizer with bread on it. She was slow to get orders and she did not check back much at all. This is a casual restaurant with prices a little upwards of that. I chose it because they are recommended for their mussels, which were average.

The food is reasonably good at this Daily Catch location. The ambiance doesn't live up to the charm of the other locations. The main course came out two secs after we received our salad so we had to send it back. Also, the server wanted to clear the salad while we were still chewing!

6 of us went for a guys night out. The food and the service was exceptional. Tried black pasta with scallops for the first time and it was amazing. The meal was served in the pan it was cooked it. Of the six we had 5 different entrees and everyone enjoyed theirs. The Sicilian Fish Stew is off the charts good! First time there, we all will be back.

I've tried the black ink pasta in the north end location and it was delicious. Ordered the same thing in the Seaport location and was disappointed. It has really bitter taste and the flavor just wasn't the same.

As for service, our server didn't check on us until we were about done eating. There was only 1 other table in the restaurant so not sure why we weren't checked on shortly after the food was served.

Overall- disappointed and would go back to the north end location instead.

There were a lot of family and visitors at the restaurant when we went because it was around the Christmas holidays. Waiter was friendly. Oysters were great, pasta was really good! When I asked for spicey, they really made it super spicey! Ambiance was alrightm I think it would be a lot nicer in the summer when you can actually sit outdoors.

We have tried many seafood restaurants in Boston but this is absolutely the best in terms of quality and value. The owners have their own fleet of fishing vessels and provide daily freshly caught seafood. The Seaport location is wonderful, with outside waterfront dining. A party of four, we dined on Dec. 27 and my wife and I ordered the LOBSTER FRA DIAVOLO for two which had very generous portions of shellfish, calamari, squid and lobster. It was served over spaghetti prepared al dente and a very delicious "spicy” seafood (with ground calamari) tomato sauce. The consistency and flavor of the spaghetti was the best I have ever eaten. Shane, our bartender and server, was fantastic. He was very attentive and responsive throughout the entire evening and made our dining experience a complete satisfaction.
