Everything went well overall until my daughter and I saw a small mouse wandering underneath the tables. We were seated all the way to the left near the window. Looks like the mouse came from outside underneath baseboard. I told the waiter and all he did was apologize. Nevertheless, food was great.

We went for HVRW and were very pleased with the choices offered. 3 of us had the Hanger Steak, while the other had the Guava Chicken, all of which were excellent. We also had the Salmon Tartare, which was so tasty! The Pork Belly was a little disappointing as it was a bit overcooked!

For dessert, we tried all three and they were great!

We would definitely go back.

Our server Gorge was phenomenal; great service. we ordered mostly all the appetizers the only highlight was the Mac; everything else including pork belly and chicken wings tasted stale or old. The drinks so regular smh the entrees a 3 of 5, nothing impressive for me to go back or recommend this place. Sorry I expected better…

The location is great. We were seated outside to our request. The street is busy and noisy. Valet parking charged us $10 when all the signs indicate $5 for valet service. We lunched on Restaurant week menu. The selection is good, portion size are normal and the food, fantastic. Very pleasant to the eye, unique flavors and combinations and really tasty.
All 6 of us enjoyed it tremendously.

Have always had issues with the quality of their food but as it was Restaurant Week we figured it might be worth a shot as the place always seems to be busy regardless - to be succinct: the food was very tasty indeed, the portions were minuscule at best - seriously the appetizers & desserts were a few bit fulls - no more - the entre was small even if it were lunch but come on folks for dinner - just a cheap thing to do - poor form really - lastly although the servers are all very nice and accommodating - they ALL serve you - so beware miscommunications will occur - while the food seems to be better, not sure their overall performance would make me want to come back

Service and basic meals were great. I had branzino. It was cooked perfectly, with crispy skin. My wife had the pasta with shredded pork, also graat. My only complaint was that the apple tart dessert clearly had been microwaved one too many times. Couldn't even cut it with the spoon they gave us. They should supplied a cleaver. It was like eating rubber. Overall I would tentatively recommend it but skip the dessert.

Nia was the only person who actually treated my late reservation as if I sat at 5pm. I watched the servers get beer from the bar and sit on the side to do side work. Staff gathered around and gossiped in Spanish about how late we sat and how we needed to order our food because the kitchen was closing. The appetizers came with entree. There was no hospitality. The wings had sauce on the side but absolutely no seasoning. It was a rushed job so everyone could go home. Working in this industry I would be very disappointed with the service that was provided.

Our waiter was extremely cordial and informative re: all our menu questions. One of the first times a rigatoni with light on the meat sauce request actually came with a non- runny sauce that gripped the perfectly cooked pasta. Thai chicken and good old hamburger and fries all delicious. And the white sangria, made when ordered, not sitting all night in a jar, was more than enjoyable.

Dont like the idea of added `18% automatically. We're two people, not a party of five.
The waiter was ok, but I like to tip according to service. An additional charge for a way potatoes were cooked was not explained at onset. It was offered as a side which was included.

The food and service was excellent. My wife and I had a great time. The only think I would like to point out is that the steak was served on top of the fries and made the fries soggy. Next time, I will t the steak on the side so the fries don’t absorb the grease of it. Other than that, I wouldn’t change anything. I am definitely coming back.

Solid but medium level seafood joint - would be better to focus on fresh / raw / local seafood but they cater to a more bar scene crowd at least when i went. great service great drinks great location

We love Dolphin. The appetizers and drink menu stand on their own. Desserts are fantastic. Ambience music, brilliant. Most entrees are great - fish tacos and steak stand out. Fried rice and the shrimp and rice are really good but don't need 2 full cups of rice on the plate, I would still pay the price with half the food on the place! But I'm a huge fan and will continue to recommend and return... FYI some of the comments/reviews are simply mean and shouldn't be here... this is a great Yonkers restaurant and if you have the time, give them a shot.

Julian was great and very accommodating!
This is my usual spot that I bring my family and friends!
I had the Thai mussels - excellent! But the sauce is the true winner! Make sure you have some bread to dip in the sauce or their “OH SO GOOD” truffle fries ordered ready to dip it in there!!
My friend had the octopus! I would have ordered the same, but the dish has pork and I wasn’t sure if the octopus was cooked with it. They also had the crab cake appetizer…it was devoured! My other friend had the crab cake appetizer as well, but did not like the spice in the sauce (the sauce is good, they didn’t like anything spicy…not even a mild spice). Alternative, poor the Thai sauce from the mussels on top!!

Dolphintinis - too good (don’t drink and drive)

I be back next week with another review!!

Location is great, right on the water. The food was OK, but the service was really challenging. Had to chase the waiter down for everything - cutlery for our mains (since they cleared the table after apps), sauces, the bill.

@ noon on a Sunday ;

The food was extremely good. Quick and great service. The drinks were well prepared and mixed.

Due to the pandemic the menu is a little bit different which isn’t stated on the app. They do have daily specials available !

Beautiful view of the Yonkers waterfront
