“Best Meal in Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

I read about Daily Catch on Tripadvisor and it lived up to its review. Plan to not go on the weekend, as you will stand in a line for more than an hour. We went on Wednesday and were seated immediately. Your order is cooked on the spot...both of our dinners were delicious. Exceptionally delicious...the best we had in Boston!

“We have been coming here for more than 30 years”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Yes it is chaotic and the lines are often long. But the Fra Diavalo and mussels with linguine are why we return and always have a great meal and a great time.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is a super tiny little place. Only seats about 20 people, at communal tables. The food was ridiculously good. Best linguine and clam sauce EVER.

“Come here for the experience rather than the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

For the price they charge, I do expect great seafood dishes. Yes, the seafood is fresh, but if I want just fresh seafood I would have gone to fish market.

I won't recommend anyone who is looking for great food to come here, because for the price you pay, you can get better than this.

However, I would recommend anyone who like an experience to come here, the atmosphere and the service are good, and watching the chef at work is fascinating. Yes, you might have to share a table with other diners but that's part of the fun!

We spend around USD 100 for a dinner for 2, so if you like an experience and think it worth the price, then this is the place for you!

“Dish served straight from the pan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

A delicious decadent dish served straight from the pan was served sizzling hot.
Seafood and pasta combination cooked fresh for you is amazing, Daily Catch is definitely a great italian/seafood restaurant in Boston Seaport. Friendly staff always a great experience.
Expect lines, small restaurant full of flavors.
