The fried calamari is wonderful as are most of the pasta dishes. But beware of their "no"reservation policy. You can stand in line for 30-60 minutes and think that you're next in line. All of a sudden, someone will show up and be escorted to the next available table ahead of you. The wait staff plays favorites with those living... More

I have many time walk past both the Daily catch in Brookline and in Boston's North End to see long lines waiting to get into the restaurants. Last night, Walking down Harvard Street in Brookline, we saw the line stretching down the sidewalk and decided to give it a try. One hour and forty five minutes later we finally were... More

Get to the restaurant early since there is limited seating. Once you get seated the service is very good and the food is great. I had swordfish and my wife had shrimp (came in a frying pan) and both came with pasta. Place is small so one waitress and one cook, but do not let that fool you, they are... More

Thank God for little monkfish, especially when it's prepared in marsala à la Daily Catch Brookline!!! Come se dice "scrumpdili-icious" in Italiano? Smiles and twinkling eyes after savoring the flavor of a perfect meal is universally understood. All appetizers and desserts, too, and the many dishes shared by a table of five of us, were all superb. Problem is we... More

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
