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!

Long wait, small place. Good food

We waited about an hour to get seated due to the small size of the restaurant, but once seated, service was fast and efficient. Dishes were very good. We had calamari and a black pasta dish that we both enjoyed.

For some reason we don't see squid ink pasta very often, but if more people visit this place and try their delicious version of the stuff it will catch on. We couldn't get enough of the Aglio Olio with ground calamari. The little necks siciliano was also outstanding. Good wine list and good cocktails with a nice view of the... More

Food was fresh and unbelievable... One of a kind kitchen... Cash only but worth it. Place only seats 18 and smells like garlic which was good for the appetite.

We chose this restaurant as our 'get dressed up' dining experience while on vacation. We placed our order and waited while other tables ordered and received their food. When we asked the waitress about our food, she went back to the kitchen and discovered our order was lost and had to be re-entered. When our food arrived, my husband's dish... More

This was one of the best meals I had on my visit to Boston. My mom and I came here for a late lunch but the place was still packed. Tucked in the North End area of Boston, I am so glad we got to eat here. This is not a place for a romantic dinner, but instead is a... More

Our party of 3 arrived to dine just before 6 pm. We were seated outside overlooking the water. Pleasant view. We ordered a round of beers, oysters, a starter (as a light main course) & 2 main courses. The starter came first. I asked where the oysters were & was told apologetically that there was another big party that was... More

The small size of the this flagship restaurant on Hanover Street, contributes to the lines, but the MAIN REASON IS THAT THE FOOD IS GREAT. In the many, many times I have enjoyed a meal here, I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY COMPLAINTS. I actually come up from New York City, to come up and enjoy a meal, and enjoy some... More

Get there early and avoid the lines, not only because they serve great food but also because there are only a handful of tables in this one room restaurant with an open kitchen. As amazing as the food is, Calamari and black pasta are my favorites, watching the "show" is just as incredible. One chef handles all the orders, and... More

Stopped for a glass of wine. No wine glasses so I was served a $10 (over priced) glass of wine in a plastic cup. Tried to pay with cash only they didn't have change. Don't think I'll risk having dinner here. Might have to eat off a paper plate.

The atmosphere is the best. Hidden in a quaint little corner of the harbor right on the water. Very peaceful setting. Food and service were the best.
