Owners Mario Leon and Tamara Bourso introduced traditional Spanish cuisine with a Dali twist to Boston in 1989 and the concept of pairing/sharing tapas quickly spread throughout the restaurant community. Dali offers a full liquor bar with Sangria, original/vintage Cocktails, and Bottoms Up Shots. The interior is personalized with quirky decor such as the Crying Gold Wall, Lost & Found Clothesline, and a LED Interactive Table that cozily seats 6-10 convivial guests.

Reservations available Wednesday thru Sunday from 5:30 to 10 and we invite you for a memorable evening.

    Have been there 3 times previously and all were very good. Unfortunately, this time was disappointing. Went for a birthday. Stated that in the notes in open table when we made the reservations and informed the host when we checked in. The host stated he saw it in the reservations and stated the server was aware. If she was aware she forgot. She also forgot our spiced chicken kebabs, our glass of wine, our cup of tea,…. Like I stated, have been there 3 times previously. Until this time,I always thought of Dali as an easy choice, will reconsider going forward.

    The place is atmospheric, fun, and lively but the food is barely mediocre. The quality of ingredients is quite basic and nothing tastes fresh or particularly flavorful. The service we had was pretty good and it’s a unique experience overall but definitely don’t come for the food.

    I remember Brian from 25 years ago. Our waiter was great. The food was outstanding as I expo. One of my friends was not happy with the paella. It was the perfect place for the birthday celebration of Mark and mine.

    Most of the tapas plates were excellent. However, I asked for iced tea as it was a 94 degree day. I was initially told they could make it and then was told they could not. I asked for hot tea and 2 cups of ice and was refused. If you are interested in alcohol or water it’s great. Don’t expect more.

    This is a great place to come with a group. We have always enjoyed the drinks, service and the food. This particular visit was fine. Paella was not piping hot when it arrived; and shrimp in the garlic oil was not quite done when it hit the table. We let that sit a minute to cook. They are tiny shrimp that they must place in the hot pan just as it leaves the kitchen thinking it’ll cook up on way to table. Small details, but they were noticed. Still a go to place for us!

    The garlic shrimp, the focaccia, the sangria,and the service were all standouts. The only surprise was that although cooked perfectly, the tenderloin didn't have a lot of flavour. Huh. Overall a lovely experience and we'll be back!

    A great place to bring a visitor to town for wine and tapas. We like to sit at the bar. The bartender has been there for at least a couple of decades. He’s great. Very tuned in to his customers and fun, too.

    Have been celebrating my birthday at Dali’s for the past 25 years. Never been disappointed. Love the classic Spanish tapas selection and excellent sangria. The personnel is always outstanding and friendly. The ambiance is great and I am thankful that the restaurant kept its character and decor. It’s fun, clean and special. There is no other place like this one senor Mario would be proud.

    Absolutely amazing service, with a head waiter who was a magical teleporting demigod. Lively and upbeat without being overcrowded or too loud to talk. The interior is a beautiful, eclectic, artistically textured experience with each different room of the restaurant a different feel. Every dish was delightful; you *have to* get the churros. And for tapas in the city, their prices are great. If you're looking to impress a date, or share bottles of wine and sangria, I cannot think of a better place.

    Dali is a fun restaurant to go to. The minute you walk in the door, you are greeted by welcoming staff and and room decor and decorations that evoke a sense of artistic joy. Dali provides a feast for the eyes as well as a feast for the stomach. The food is delicious and it is so much fun to try a variety of the tapas (small plates). There are a wide variety of choices; enough to please any palate and service is thoughtful and attentive.

    This is the best restaurant in the world. Food is absolutely delicious, decor is somewhere between eclectic and outrageous, service is charming — and attentive to dietary restrictions. Júlio will take good care of you whether he is tending bar or serving tables. We hardly ever venture beyond the wide variety of tapas. Excellent selection of wines, sherries, ports, and both original and traditional cocktails.
