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.

Am so grateful this tiny restaurant has stayed put in Brookline! Your quintessential neighborhood restaurant. Food consistently yummy. Best calamari anywhere. And you can't go wrong with any pasta with the white sauce. Yes, there is always a long line. But it is worth it. Try it.

Skip the over-priced and plain vanilla Legal Seafood and head straight for Daily Catch. The seafood is a fresh as it gets and preparation is outstanding!!! Just be prepared to wait on a weekend...the restaurant's small.

got in without a wait, its rare but it worked out. My swordfish was cooked perfectly with tasty horseradish mashed potatoes. My partner enjoyed her shrimp scampi with plentiful number of shrimp cooked perfectly. Shared a yummy lemon cake dessert which a perfect end to a perfect evening!

Thank albnh
