Eclectic and delicious.

It doesn’t look like much from the outside but Dali is excellent. You’ll find an well crafted spanish ambiance inside – lots of red, lots of candlelight, and small rooms that make everything feel a little more intimate.

Dali is a neighborhood institution. Luckily I live around the corner! Their small plates/tapas style menu makes it a great place to stop in with friends for a drink or nosh. Delightfully ornate, glittery, and fun, Dali is also awesome to take out-of-town guests for a fun night out. The staff is warm and attentive. The food, divine and diverse.... More

Our bacalao was extremely salty, much saltier than bacalao should be. Other than that, the food was average - I enjoy the tapas at Barcelona and Solea more. Points go to Dali for having more authentic food and a quirky, lively atmosphere. I wouldn't dissuade anyone from going here because I enjoyed the experience, but I'm not sure I'd go... More

Went here with friends who frequent this restaurant. My girlfriend and I were the only non-Latinos in a group of four couples. I had been a Spanish exchange student many years ago and loved the tapas concept but had never found anything that really measured up...until Dali. The sangria is a sweetly fruity and potent concoction that is delicious. We... More

We had mostlyl vegetarian ones --cauliflower and broccoli in cheese puff pastry, spinich with raisins and nuts (really good), crepes with eggplant ragout, saffron battered fried shrimp,... More

This restaurant is not cheap but it has all the right things to make you pay for the value. It has fantastic food; great service and nice ambient. The waiting time can be long on weekends but if you go early enough you will be fine. The manager is very nice and friendly! I love going there! I would go... More

Went with a friend and his son and girlfriend -- all of us enjoyed the experience immensely, despite our age differences. The sangria was delicious and each food dish had clearly been prepared with care. There's something for everyone, from meat and potatoes to grilled asparagus, seafood of all types and preparations, and creative combinations that you wouldn't think of... More

Love, love, love this place! Small and quirky, it has a cozy atmosphere and amazing staff. The food is great and the sangria is the best in town (order it by the pitcher. no, really). Say hello to Señor Frog while you are there as well!

Dali transports you the second you enter - it is a beautiful, romantic, the food is out-of-this-world.. I would go every night if I could, if only to feast on the Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimp). I've loved this restaurant for romance, friends, a Bachelorette Party, family - you can't go wrong. All are welcome and the menu is tremendous.

If you can get past the lines and the noise in Dali, the meal makes it well worth your visit. With an oustanding variety of tapas-style dishes, everyone in our party had a chance to try something new. The food is all fresh and very tasty. The noice is overwhelming at times, making me wish I could go back on... More
