With our black pasta dish: Aglio Olio rated top 100 in the country, The Daily Catch - Seaport is considered by many as the best place to enjoy Pasta, Seafood and most importantly Calamari in Boston. Footsteps from the water, you can enjoy the ocean breeze while sipping wine or cocktails on our Outdoor Patio. Or you can sit in any of our newly renovated dinning rooms with stunning views of the Boston Harbor and City Skyline while taking in the aroma of fresh ingredients from our open kitchen. We are the #1 Seafood Restaurant in Boston's Seaport District according to Zagat Food Ratings. Your reservation is only a click away! Please note: The Daily Catch - Seaport gladly accepts online reservations for our indoor dining-room. We are, however, unable to accept online reservations for our outdoor patio due to our inability to guarantee favorable weather conditions. Patio seating is offered to patrons, as weather and availability permits, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank You!

Waked right in with a party of 4 at 2pm on a weekday. This place gets packed with a line down the street on weekends or peak meal times. Although it is definitely worth the wait, it was nice to walk right in and sit. The food was fantastic! With only a few tables, there is one waiter and one... More

This place is ALL about the food! No frills, 20 seats in a 10 seat restaurant, served in the dish your meal was cooked in, wine in a plastic cup. The homemade black pasta was amazing, highly recommend if you like your food unique, fresh, and minimalist.

Tucked in the North End, across from Mike’s Pastries, The Daily Catch is probably one of Boston’s best-kept seafood secrets. It's a cozy restaurant with an open kitchen and maybe 20 or so seats. Seriously no-frills. If you’re expecting a sophisticated atmosphere and butt-kissing service, this is not your place. When he served the fried calamari appetizer, the manager pointed... More

I was a bit surprised about the long waiting line in front of the restaurant. Waiting time was about 1 hour, but it was worth every penny. The Place retained the atmosphere of a retail fish market with an open kitchen right in the middle of the room. The calamari I had was just perfect. The wine was quite good... More

I've never been here. I thought it was good. The staff did a nice job. The swordfish was great. The food took awhile but worth the wait. We found this place by GAS it's sort of hidden.

It is a familiar and cozy restaurant. The black past with calamares is fantastic! The team is very friend and the taste is very good. Near Quincy Market and Market Green Line, It's worth a visit!

We timed dinner just right at the Hanover Street location. With close quarters, people WILL wait outside in the Boston cold for this. fried calamari app was tender and fresh, small size is enough to share. Broiled haddock best I've ever had, owner said fresh off the boat that week. Black squid ink pasta is homemade and with the chopped... More

I learned about this place by seeing the lobster fra diavlo on the Food Network. I told my friends we had to go with our wives. It is a Sicilian seafood restaurant so know that before going. Had the calmalri as an appetizer which was simple but good. We got the lobster fra diavlo for 3, the more who go... More
