My wife and I shared the lobster Fra Diavolo, and it was one of the best meals we've ever eaten. Also, the service is excellent and they have some very good wines. We had to wait a little while for a table -- they don't take reservations -- but it was definitely worth the wait!

We had a fantastic dinner here with great service. Our table was literally within arms reach of the kitchen. It was fascinating to watch the chef - she was amazing. The bad part was it was a bit warm back there. There were 6 of us and everyone raved about their dishes. They offered a few specials in addition to... More

My daughter and I went to the Daily Catch for the first time on a Friday night in January. It is a small restaurant with only one waitress and one chef, but everything not only works, it is a very pleasing dining experience that exceeded our expectations. We started off with the appetizers of fried calamari with sauce and the... More

The seared Peppercorn Ahi Tuna was fantastic! tender, meaty, plentiful with just the right touch of pepper and other spices as not to overpower the ahi. The Salmon was crispy cooked, light and tender placed on a grilled potato bar on top of steamed spinach. The salmon was topped with dijon mustard and a fried egg! Outstanding flavor combinations!!!

The Daily Catch was one of the restaurants listed near our hotel. When we inquired at the front desk for a recommendation of this restaurant, it was given an immediate 'thumbs up.' We walked the several blocks, nice weather, and were fortunate to be seated immediately. Shortly after the restaurant was full. We never heard of Calamari meatballs, but tried... More

Love, LOVE the Daily Catch. Please understand that this location is truly a hole-in-the-wall -- a few tables, very casual with a varied crowd of patrons, all practically in swoon at the flavors. Trust me: It is wise to arrive early and secure your spot in line outside. If you are with a group, have the driver drop you off... More

My perennial feeding pilgrimage in this fantastico italian Brookline post still sends me to pasta ecstacy. The food is simply 'mama mia',delivering the freshiest seafoods and pastas. One slurp of the linguine with its perfecto white clam sauce gives me the chills down the stomach, most satisfying indeed! BEWARE, SEATS ARE LIMITED! EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORMS!

Ever since the demise of The Village Fish in Brookline/Arlington/Needham, we've been looking for a high quality seafood restaurant. This fits the bill perfectly. The food was outstanding. Several of us had the Vongole Neapolitan and were not only pleased, but surprised. The red sauce was full of flavor. This place is the original Brookline seafood joint. A small, intimate... More

Recently visiting Boston, staying nearby, and wanted a good seafood restaurant. Based on TA recommendations, gave this place a try, and were not disappointed. Small (8 tables) place with open kitchen and I really enjoyed watching chef and chatting with him a bit. Good basic seafood (e.g. fried calamari appetizer), inventive specials and sides (e.g. marscapone risotto), and friendly service.... More
