    authentic cool place. excellent quality tapas. I only ordered the vegetarian ones, I think there were about 4 or 5 veggie options. ALL of them were so good

    Dali is always the right choice for a romantic night out. It's lively, the tapas are delicious and meant to be shared, and it'll make you think you're in Barcelona. [Eater 38 Member]

    Love the ambiance! Lively and romantic. The magic number is 3. Most of the dishes come 3 to a plate - ie. 3 scallops, 3 raviolis, 3 stuffed articokes. Makes it a lil difficult for a double date.

    Dali is perfect for a romantic date. The tapas are unique and ideal for sharing, but if you want to try a main course, go with the sea bass baked in a crust of salt or paella for two. Read more

    Dali is muy romantico, so take your special lady here for some beef short ribs in a Rioja wine sauce. Add to the romance w/ pitchers of sangria. Read more

    Killer spot to take a special someone. The food is great (but not cheap) and the ambiance is hard to beat.

    The tapas are really hit-or-miss so try to order plates with strong flavors, you really can't go wrong. Also, the white port on the dessert wine list is fantastic.

    Get the fresones (fried strawberries) before they're gone! They only make them for a few months during the summer. Not always on the menu so ask.

    Good food but the waiter and host were terrible rude tu us. They didn't respect the reservation and send us to the bar where the service didn't improve. The waiter throw the plates to our table.

    Was not impressed with the service, the wait time before being seated. The food was good. Service sucked and as soon as the bill was paid we were asked to leave it go to the bar.
