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!

15 years later, it didn't disappoint

We ate at the Daily Catch 15 years ago and hoped to repeat the unique experience. Our 1 hr + wait was worth it! Excellent calamari, shrimp and pasta, all served in the saute pan it was cooked in.

Let's start with the food. I had the oysters (delicious) and the aglio and olio which was out of this world.. The fisherman's brew was also a great beer choice. Now to the service. I went there without a reservaiton (because open table doesn't allow you to book for 1 for this restaurant). They were pretty busy but still found... More

My friend and I visited the location across from Mike's Pastry and waited 20 minutes for a table of two, not bad for Boston on a gorgeous Sunday. We ordered the marinated squid salad and the black ink pasta while I heard three orders of the Seafood Fra Diavolo around us. The chef was a one man army cooking for... More

There are 3 or 4 Daily Catches in Boston. One is in the North End across from Mike's Pastry and seats about 15. I went to the one in Seaport. When we got there, I realized I'd been there the year before after a company event, we all went over there for dinner. On that occasion, half of us were... More

There are 3 locations in Boston. I ate at the newer Seaport location. This is a fa,ilc-owned and operated business. Italian and seafood. Note, - if you don't like seafood, this is not a pace for you. Only 2 chicken dishes on the menu that don't contain seafood. Great service, reasonable prices and this location has a huge outdoor (covered... More

The setting is very nice, on the harbor, covered but essentially open air with nice cross breeze. Service was prompt and efficient. The drinks are well priced and good. We only had appetizers, but they were of excellent quality and quantity.

The squid ink pasta was itself was great, however the white sauce was bland, chunky, and overall bad. The fish and chips was pretty decent, but again a little bland. The service was terrible. They opened up late, and were very rushed like you were inconveniencing them. All of that being said, I was recommended this place because of the... More

We waited a long time. It was nice to get inside this warm friendly restaurant that feels like moms kitchen. We shared a table because theres only seating for 22. The calamari were perfectly, lightly breaded and fresh. The black ink pasta was the best. I will be back. Great customer service.

Second time around and I still enjoyed dining in this restaurant. My first experience was excellent! Our server was attentive and accommodating. It may be because it was late in the evening and there were not much diners. Wasn't quite the same today but the place was packed. I've read a lot of reviews of how people are having to... More

The room holds 20 diners so you wait outside until they have room for you. The space is tight - our chef was cooking in the same space! The menu is written on a chalkboard and features lots of seafood options - many things are squid based. The best thing was the black pasta made fresh everyday with the ink... More
