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!

Walking down the Boston Port, my friends and me decided to stop at this very well located bar/restaurant near the Fan Pier. It was just to take drinks while appreciating the view on Downtown Boston and Seaport. Host was friendly and show us to our table. We looked at the menus and then, the waiting started. It took nearly 30... More

If I am in the North End just before when most people would eat lunch or dinner, I scamper to the bank machine and make a beeline over to The Daily Catch to beat the lines! I have never had anything but the shrimp scampi with linguine here, and that is because it is so good! Mmmmm... garlic.... butter..... It... More

This is a great restaurant to eat at if you're not in a rush! The first time I ate there, I had booked a table (good idea!) and we were given one with an amzazing view of downtown Boston. The waitress was efficient and took our orders quickly, returning within ten minutes with our drinks. Unfortunately, despite no one ordering... More

We were a party of 6 that had reservations (highly recommended). We were on a 10 night round trip journey to Maine and this was by far the worst service we had. The watress had zero personality which also did not help. We waited, and waited and waited for the food to arrive. Drink refills were only done at our... More

We decided to try lunch when it opened to avoid the long lines at this tiny twenty person spot. After a short twenty minute wait, we were seated with travelers from Portland ME who raved about the marinara and yes they were right. Wine in plastic cups doesn't bother us…we were there for the food. We ordered a small fried... More

We happened to be walking by at lunch time and noticed an empty table. We came in out of the rain and tucked ourselves into a little table in the corner. Our waiter recommended the black squid pasta and it was served steaming hot to us in the frying pan that it was cooked in and was delicious. The entire... More

I trust that most of the foodies are 99.99% accurate on restaurants, and their 0.01% wrong may be about this Daily Catch restaurant in North End Boston. My family and I had dinner at this restaurant last week, mainly because of the rave reviews from the experts. What a disappointment!! Starting with waiting line, the waitress told us that the...

Based on looks hard to believe people wait almost 2 hours for a table in this little restaurant that seats 20 with the kitchen right in the corner and menu on the large blackboard on the wall. Luckily I was in the area while the line was short enough to get in the first time they sat people. I do... More

This is MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT! Normally, I do not eat Italian food in restaurants, but, this is the exception. The seafood, especially the calamari, is the best I've ever tasted...this coming from one who used to work in the fish business. Very small, which leads to long lines (not my forte), but, get there early enough, and it's not a... More

Italian seafood restaurant in North Boston with about eight tables, so there may be a line. Well worth the wait. The black pasta with seafood was very popular. Entrees come in regular portion or appetizer portion. The smaller portion is usually more than adequate. Especially if you want to save room for dessert at Mike's Place across the street for... More
