We came here again because a chinese friend of ours really wanted to come. Last time we found that the place was too noisy (impossible to hear the person across from you), not child friendly (they asked us to leave the crane outside and sit the baby on a chair......), very expensive and too crowded. In a word, not pleasant.... More

One of my all-time favorite restaurants. From the pitchers of sangria to the community canva flutes, you can't pass up on the best sets of small plates you'll have. Gotta order the garlicky shrimp (sizzling hot, we order two), duck, red sauce with goat cheese, pork tenderloin with blue cheese, lobster ravioli, or any of there other specials. Great for... More

So, this is a place to experience. Outside, it's deceiving, but step inside, have some Sangria, then get seated out there beyond the friendly bar. It's like you have been transported to some small place in some other part of the world! I don't know how they did it, but it's like a Harry Potter tent! The place seems huge... More

When we were in Barcelona, we had some very good tapas. But frankly, no better than Dali's! This is a treasure. The only downsides - they don't take reservations and on weekends there is a line waiting when they open. And parking can be a challenge - try the lot next to the Comcast store on Hampshire.

We have eaten at Dali's many times over the past 15 years, but it has been 3 years since our last visit because we now live 3000 miles away. I cannot remember a return visit to Cambridge that did not involve a dinner at Dali. The food is simply divine - every time! We dined on 10 different tapas plus... More

Wow! The atmosphere is awesome. It's classy but different than anything you've ever seen. The food was unbelievable. My friend and I split 5 tapas and every one was delicious. The rabbit and chicken croquettes were to die for. The prices were very fair as the portions were bigger than I expected. Highly recommend checking this awesome spot out. Would... More

I came with my wife and parents to try all the different tapas and sangria and we enjoyed it all. The grilled lamb, beef empanadas, and jamon serrano were my favorite dishes- but realistically try everything. You will not regret it! Also the sangria was tasty. Definitely go with some friends and don't worry about submitting multiple orders to the... More

I see my daughter, who lives in Somerville, a few times a year down her way. We usually eat at an upscale Boston place (e.g. Hamersley's Bistro, Atlantic Fish). On her recommendation, I tried Dali, a little further outbound from Union Square, her locale. Fantastic! We shared five dishes -- shrimp, spinach, rabbit, pheasant, and artichokes, all very good --... More

Lots of options on their Tapas menu. Enjoyed the Sangria too. Service for a group of 8 was very quick.
