Perfectly prepared tuna steaks and squid pasta, along with excellent service provided an excellent dining experience.

Excellent restaurant, everything is excellent. Tried a great seared tuna special, shared fried calamari. Mussels marinara are terrific. Hard to go wrong. If there was something to complain about, it's that many of the dishes are overpriced, for example $29 for a basic tuna steak.

I went with my husband and three children. We all had something different (including the specials) and everything was excellent. The atmosphere was also nice as it is such a small place. One of our new favorite places!

Food served hot and fresh, in frying pans, quite fun. The pasts are generous in serving but the seafood on top is a very small portion. They serve their own black squid pasts which has a slightly different flavor to regular pasts but not worth the difference in cost. Friendly people but not particularly caring about service. The kitchen is... More

I have come here many times. The fish is always great. Usually, the service is very friendly, making the experience complete. Last week, however, there was a waiter who had never learned the word please and was indifferent to people waiting outside even though there were empty clean tables available. Left a message for the owners but they never replied.

We were able to walk right into this tiny restaurant but I would suggest reservations. We saw several parties turned away and a few people waiting outside in the cold (which infiltrates the restaurant every time the door is opened). Most of the dishes are pasta based which suited us just fine. Good service, reasonable prices, we would return.

We dined here 2 days ago. Luckily for us it was a quiet night being a Jewish holiday. Usually there is a line up outside the door. Always a good sign. It is small, discreet and popular. We chose the Littlenecks for starters. Very nice! I had the Linguine and Scallops for mains. My husband opted for the Blackened Tuna... More

This small and crowded restaurant serves tasty fish and pastas. I like the calamari meatballs and Pasta Vongole (with clams).

The Daily Catch in Brookline is a delightful little Mom & Pop restaurant that seats about 20 people (so come early!). The menu here is absolutely delightful and exquisitely prepared. The wife and I took our daughter and could NOT have possibly been more pleased that we had sought out this phenomenal experience! The wife had a shrimp/penne in red... More

Great seafood in Brookline. I love the fish dishes, as well as the black pasta. Nice fried seafood too. Expect long waits, as they don't take reservation and the restaurant is very small.
