Perfect midweek date

Very friendly staff, server was great, sangria perfect, tapas on point, I must say you have to try the garlic shrimp even if this is the only thing you'll eat. Already made reservation for valentines day.

We love this place, and love tapas, and love the crowd, and love the crowded festive atypical atmosphere. But those little plates add up and I'm always shocked at the bill! I need to reduce my expectations!

This place is pretty good but also expensive for what you get. It's tapas, but the prices per tapas were about what I expect to pay for a lower price meal ($10-15) so assuming you have to get 3 per person, the tab adds up pretty quick. Overall the quality is very good though.

I liked Dali -- the bar is festive and eclectic -- and so is the restaurant. It was quite crowded when we went there, but it was so warm and welcoming that it wasn't an issue at all. The tapas are great -- we stuck with vegetarian/seafood -- all good.

My wife and I have been visiting Dali for almost 25 years now and we have not had a bad meal here. Classic tapas with a few new twists. The sea bass cooked in a salt crust is awesome (and not salty). The table side presentation of the whole fish always garners envious looks from other tables. We brought out... More

Waiter anxious to give us history and answer any questions we had about the menu. Loved the atmosphere and decor. Shared a bottle of wine and 6 tapas. Plenty of delicious choices and it was nice to be... More

Do go and sit at the bar. Ignore the dinner items and order from the tapas menu. Have a big variety and share with your companions. Sip sangria and spend several hours. Lovely.

Delicious choice of tapas including many vegetarian options. Great mojitos, wine and beer. Sumptuous dessert, try the homemade dulce de leche ice cream!

Dinner here with friends from out of town visiting son. Nice atmosphere and decor. Friendly and attentive service. Shared tapas with wife. Somewhat mixed results. Short Ribs were excellent. Eggplant fair. Garlic shrimp very small in a butter garlic sauce. Overall good meal. The real problem is the noise level which made it very difficult for conversation without yelling. This... More

We walked from my daughter and son-in-law's new apartment with our granddaughter to this wonderful restaurant. Very friendly service and our food selections were very filling for a table of five. The Gorditas and Buñuelos de Verdura were a table favorite out of the seven tapas we ordered; but they all are so delicious. We tried the wine samples and... More
