We had the pleasure of eating at Dali in Cambridge tonight. My wife and I have been loving this restaurant for 25 years. Such a special place. Tonight we ordered 50/50 - half of things we know we love, and half things we've never tried before. 100% were delicious. On our way out our usual waiter, Rafa, saw me as... More

A group of 5, we ordered from a variety of tapas as well as a group of vegetarian options along with a seafood paella. All was superb. The ceviche was sweet as well as sour from the marinade. The lamb chops, rabbit, eggplant in crepe were standouts. The seafood paella was outstanding with sublime saffron flavor and great seafood selection.... More

We were in Boston for an event, and made a reservation at Dali after reading others reviews. When we pulled up, we were a bit skeptical, as it is a hole in the wall location outside the city, but after we walked through the door we knew we had chosen well. It's a medium sized establishment, but the space inside... More

Amazing atmosphere with fantastic choice of tapas, paella and whole fish prepared at your table. Our favorite tapas were the Espinaca Catalana, Setas al Ajillo ,  Gambas al Ajillo, Conejo Escabechado, and the Costillas de Vaca.

In the old zagat ratings they gave separate ratings for food, decor, and service. At Dali the decor is very interesting. Even the walls are funky and artistic. The service was also good. I give high marks for both. The fish is served in an amazing salt display on a large tray. Once it is excavated it is not very... More

This place came highly recommended, and for me, it hit it clear out of the park. Three of us arrived on a chilly winter night in a steady drizzle. The entrance is compact and doesn't reveal the surprises that await. If you are looking for a serious formal atmosphere with starched linen and even more starched waiters, turn around and... More

This was our second visit - we were there first in August and this time in January to celebrate my husband's 75th birthday...both times were exceptional. We were a party of 6 - 4 adults and 2 kids. We had a reservation and got right in - very crowded both times, very noisy the first time, better this time. We... More

We stayed at this place which interiors are not even kitsch but only driven by bad taste and distraction along the years. And the food is prepared with no care and love. Too much garlic everywhere covering any taste, oily fried dishes, not very qualitative ingredients. Not worth its reviews at all.

Excellent tapas restaurant with an incredible menu. The tastiest of dishes with friendly prices. Highlights to the muscles and lamb. Outstanding service, great atmosphere, romantic setting. If reserving a table, ask for the corner window seats for the most intimate seating (for two). Truly recommended!

I took a group of 8 for my sister's birthday on a Saturday in December 2017 and I have to say it seemed like we were a bother to the waitstaff. Althought we had a reservation they first tried to put us in the front room near the bar at a row of two-tops that were pushed together but were... More
