This was my first time visit to this restaurant and I can't wait to go back! Close friends of the owner joined us for dinner and ordered everything for the table (of 7) and everything was delicious and great. It happened to be the owner's birthday and he joined us - what a treat that was and his daughter who... More

Our group (5 adults) had dinner at Dali and it was wonderful. We were lucky that there was no wait and we were offered a table right away, which is pretty unusual for this place. The decor is quite unusual and there is lots of artwork to look at. We ordered a variety of tapas, a fish cooked in salt... More

Yes you have to wait if you go to the restaurant. Our 20-minute wait ended up being more like 40 minutes because there is no way to know when people are going to give up their table. But the hostess kept us informed and apologized for the late and there was nothing else that she could do. Quality restaurants are... More

The place outside featured cascading la vender petunias from the planters. Inside, the decor was busy but warm . The duck in berry sauce, goat cheese with tomato sauce with basil and sausage with beans were wonderful; as well as bacon wrapped prunes were knockouts. For the postre(dessert) it was the Torte de Santiago. The yago san gria gave the... More

We had a joint birthday celebration here, and we loved the food, the service and the decor, which is a melange of all things cod-Catalan and Spanish. Yes, it feels like a great little restaurant in Barcelona or environs, and even though they were short-staffed they did everything to please us. I can't say it wasn't pricey but it wasn't... More

My wife and I have been to Dali a few times. It has a romantic atmosphere. The food is good. We really haven't had any tapa's that we didn't like. We always get a pitcher of the red sangria, it's very well made. The service has always been acceptable but not fantastic. Also keep this in mind, Tapas are very... More

A quirky purple exterior and dark and moody cave-like interior really sets the stage. Lots of tapas selections, many of them vegetarian (plus some seasonal ones too). The food is consistently very good - we've been here many times over the years and have never ordered anything we weren't happy with. It can be a long wait for a table... More

This place is awesome. I went with an old friend for a "quick drink" at the bar, and we stayed for hours. We not only felt incredibly welcome, we were entertained. The bartender is hilarious! He also is a sweet and very caring man, and he took excellent care of us even though he was kept busy with drinks for... More

Dali has it all! Food, service and ambiance. Julio is a great bartender, so even just sitting a the bar you get a great experience. The rooms are decorative and the staff is excellent. This is one of my favorite places to go for a date night. All tapas are to be shared and are great portions and very authentic.... More
