We had a great time! First tip is to order the grilled focaccia to dip into all the amazing sauces. Second tip is to try a cocktail...I loved my capirhina and he loved his French 75. Both drinks accepted as a palate cleanser in between courses. Some of the courses were robust like the garlic shrimp and the fried cheese... More

We visited Dali on a Friday evening. They do not reserve places on weekends after 18:00 but instead offered us to enter a list that will get you in before people who didn't register at all. We were told it will take up to 25 minutes. We arrived on the time we scheduled and eventually waited one whole hour. I... More

Dali is one of our go-to date night places. The food is always amazing and consistent. The drinks are wonderful and service is always inviting and playful. The atmosphere is artistic and romantic with Spanish nuances. Lovely place for a romantic date!

The plates were perfect sizes to mix and match or to try out new tastes. I loved the chicken skewers, the beef empanadas and the garlic shrimp!

Dali has a wonderful atmosphere and decor with a good bar (our favorite Spanish brandy was on the menu but no longer available) that also serves food. Apparently the restaurant is owned by an Argentine and Russian couple, Our waiter was from Mexico and had more than he could handle with a large birthday party and at least two other... More

We ate at Dali last week and I found the food to be very average. The fried items - veggie croquette and samosas were mediocre. The garlic shrimp were swimming in oil. Will say the rabbit dish had a nice sauce. The best part of the restaurant is the decor. Its lively and exotic. The service was good.

I've been going to Dali since 1995 and it the quality of food and ambiance haven't changed a bit, which is to say it's great. Get a large pitcher of Sangria and the Gambas al Ajillo (shrimp). The staff is friendly and are more than happy to sing you a song if it happens to be your birthday. Go there!... More

I love Spanish food, having spent some quality time in Spain. So it is with critical taste buds that I eat at Spanish restaurants in the US. We ordered a selection of items to share and washed it all down with sangría and it was a wonderful meal. We had the most interesting and fun waiter. Great service, great food.... More

I have a rule where if I run across a new bread pudding or flan, I've gotta try them. The brioche bread pudding was lighter than I normally run across. One of the best and different enough to avoid passing up. Excellent flan was also lighter than I normally run across. Never had candied citrus with it before - also... More
