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!

Went here for lunch today. Sat down at 12:04, told the server we needed to get out by 1pm. Took 20 minutes to order so we asked for whatever was fastest - she had no suggestions, and was not helpful. We ordered what we thought would be fastest - soup, sandwiches and re-iterated that we needed to be out by... More

Had dinner with a bunch of people. Appetizers of steamed mussels and fried clams were good. Had main entree of fresh Haddock which was delicious and it came with fresh sauteed vegetables. Dessert of cannoli and tiramisu were delicious. One of the best Tiramisu I had and I eat lots of tiramisu. Had a great view of the bay habor... More

A business associate made reservations and recommended we do a late lunch. The restaurant was not at all crowded. We were quickly seated at an outside table but as far from the water's edge as could be. We asked for a table closer to the water, but were old they were "reserved for dinner patrons." (It was 2:00 PM, were... More

The Daily Catch had rave reviews from a friend who was a regular many years ago (different location) but this first visit for us was pretty unimpressive. While the food was okay, the portions were small and WAY overpriced for what you get. If the idea of sitting beside a harbor is worth doubling your bill, you might have a... More

After going to the Barking Crab to find that all the tables were occupied, are family decided to go to The Daily Catch. We only had to wait a few minutes for the waiters to seat us, there was a beautiful view and we could see a lot of the city. The scallop Alfredo was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! It was creamy, and... More

We were tourists in Boston, walked by (July 3), read the menu. and sat down for a late lunch. I love linguini with clams, and these were outstanding. We went back for dinner on July 5, even though we had planned to visit another restaurant. Our dinner experience was outstanding again. We chose to sit outside both times, and it... More

We were close by and this place looked fine with a great view. I should have looked at Tripadvisor first...as you can't judge a book by its cover. Inspired: nothing Service: awful - 20 mins for a beer minimum Atmosphere: nice with a harbor view Food and drink: ok Return: never Discovered: via our water taxi captain

I went for the first time a couple of weeks ago on recommendation from a friend. I have to say this is by far some of the best quality seafood and Italian food I've had in Boston and I live here! It's right on the water but that isn't even the best thing about this restaurant...it's the food! The seafood... More

Food was fantastic - frequented by locals, but restaurant only holds abour 20 people so there's a line (first come first served). Only 3 people running the site, cook, dishwasher and server - but they have it down to a very efficient system. Fun getting to chat with the other patrons since you are in such confined quarters - but... More
