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!

Great views!

I ate at The Daily Catch with a large group. We sat outdoors which I would highly recommend if available. Our group really enjoyed the food (portions were huge), but as a non-seafood eater the menu was a little challenging. It's not necessarily the best restaurant choice for a vegetarian.

This place is teeny - only seats 20 and the kitchen is open. But the food is wonderful. We went by a Saturday night around 9 am and the wait was over 2 hours b/c the restaurant is so popular. So the next day we went around 4:30 and no wait. The calamari was devine and the swordfish very fresh... More

I really don’t like writing bad reviews, but I really rely on TripAdvisor and wanted to share this one. This place is super small so you will ALWAYS have to wait. I went here with my parents (based on some many good reviews) and we waited an hour in the middle of the afternoon, which is no big deal. However... More

We were lucky on the night we went to the Daily Catch, because it was a comfortable night to stand outside and wait for our table in this tiny restaurant. The food was worth every minute of the wait! We watched the chef and staff work together as entertainment while we ate. Fantastic meals for everyone in our party.

We went for lunch and got lucky and didn't have to stand in line. Had the Calamari combination. It was very good. Its very very small. About 6 tables.

The nicest staff in Boston! So attentive & nothing too much trouble. Quick service, good menu choice & excellent venue for a private function! Can get a bit noisy.

I rarely give five stars to a restaurant because I think that should be reserved for the best of the best. The Daily Catch is a little hole in a wall. Seven tables. Not fancy. We stopped on for a late lunch (2:30) and we lucked out to the one table that was open. We shared an appetizer of fried... More

We came to the Daily Catch to celebrate my family visit for my graduation. We were a party of 7, and it was 8pm when we got to the restaurant (I reserved a table in advance, of course). After 15 minutes of wait, we were seated. It wasn't until 9:40 that we got our main courses! We sat there starving,... More

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
