The food was tasty and the service was great

A little pricey for the small portion but very good nonetheless

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

We had planned to eat at Dolphin and then attend the outdoor waterfront concert. Due to rain, the organizers had to scramble to find an alternate location. As it turned out, Dolphin stepped up and offered their 2nd floor dining room, so we got to eat and enjoy the wonderful Alita Moses and Hudson Horns at the same time! Huge kudos to Dolphin’s GM Jimmy who rallied his staff to accommodate all the additional patrons who came to see the music. Not only was the service excellent, but the kitchen rocked it also - the food was outstanding!!! Our table had the cod, short ribs, and shrimp & scallops - all VERY well prepared and presented - and both the Almond Cream Cake and the Bread Pudding were AMAZING!! Definitely check out this great restaurant in its fantastic waterfront location!

We wanted to dine outside near the water so we chose Dolphin. It was too hot so we ended up inside, but the decor and great service in addition to the food was on point. The Tequila shrimp and crab nachos were the favorites for us. The raw clams were fresh and washing everything down with delicious wine was divine.

We plan to visit again ver soon.

Food was wonderful. Thai curried muscles, guajillo pepper tequila shrimp, very delicious. But I think they were a little overwhelmed by the number of customers the night we were there so service was a bit disorganized. I think management was aware of the problem. I would definitely go there again.

Horrible service
Entrees served after main course
Drinks took too long even with reminders we had. It gotten them
Chicken sandwich was dry and over cooked
Calamari is frozen and not very good
Shrimp tacos were decent
Truffle fries good
Bartender looked too be running things
Drinks were ok with affordable pricing
Place has great potential and has a very cool night life ambiance to it. Would love to see better quality and see this place take off

Because I know the food is a hit or miss at times, we kept it simple (2) apps. baked claims and fried calamari. Main course was the fried asian rice and the shrimp tacos with fries. The food was very good as well as the cocktail. Our waiter was very nice and professional. Their was some wait time between every request, but I noticed that not only did our waiter have other tables inside, it appeared he had tables outdoors. I am assuming this was the cause for the wait time.
