Description: 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!

This was nearby when we did a search of best seafood restaurants. So we went along early before 5.30pm and were able to get a table in this tiny restaurant in Little Italy. Both couples near us had seen the queues the evening before and returned early the next day to be sure of a table. It's a very low... More

After being left hanging at "The Barking Crab" for lunch we found our way to Hanover Street and found "The Daily Catch." It is a very small resaurant hidden in a store front. You could miss it to your loss. We had to wait on the sidewalk for a minute while the waitress, receptionists, assistant chef all rolled into one... More

The atmosphere is great, but after reading so many great reviews, we were a little disappointed in the food. Appetizers - the Clams Casino were excellent, but the Clamari Meatballs were just OK. Main dishes - the Clams & Calamari Combo was overpowered with a bitter garlic taste, and the Aglio Olio was good, but not great (probably an acquired... More

We waited for 45 minutes for a table, on a weeknight; but our meal was worth every minute. I ordered calamari and shrimp dish, served on pasta in a red sauce. It was served in a skillet; it was fabulous! My friend ordered 'black' pasta; that was interesting! Great service, ambiance, and of course ... north end ambiance! We will... More

This is the best italian place i have ever been. Fresh Black squid ink homemade pasta combined with homemade sauce of your choosing. These guys even go off the standard menu! Small place is a downer, but WAIT IN LINE FOR THIS PLACE! You have to wait in line for this place and they don't give you an estimated wait... More

True to form, if we'd arrived any later than 5:05 p.m. We probably would have had to wait for the entire restaurant to finish the "first seating." I'm a native and this was my first visit. I took a friend from the Upper East Side and we both had similar meals and a similar reaction. I had the clams and... More

This review is for the restaurant on Hanover Street. You do have to stand in line on the street to get in, but they turn the tables quickly - we waited about 45 - 50 minutes on a busy Sunday night. Food is really fantastic - simple, fresh. Way better than many of the overpriced pasta joints on the street.... More

We waited about 45 minutes outside the restaurant to be seated on a Thursday night. You do not put your name on the list; you simply wait until there is room for you to be seating in the restaurant (this is typical of the area). While we waited, my husband walked across the street to the famous Mike's Pastry for... More

Note: This review is for the North End restaurant on Hanover St. This a pretty typical small Italian restaurant you would expect to find in this area of town. It's not Olive Garden so don't expect a lot of choices or friendly service. You better know what you want when you sit down otherwise you're just holding up everyone else.... More

A friend of ours, a Bostonian brought a few of us from work to the Daily Catch. It is near the federal court house. There is no big signage and as soon as you walk into the restaurant, you'll understand why it is a catch. It faces Rowes Wharf and is near the Harborwalk, perfect for an evening walk right... More
