Very quiet due to a snow storm, had the seafood payah which didn’t sit well with my stomach when I got home (it only takes 1 shrimp)

The 3rd party valet was VERY rude asking for the pre pay fee before giving me a spot (take cash) after doing that and eating dinner, then wouldn’t give me my keys until I gave him a tip (even though I pre paid a fee)

I tip is earned by good service ..... it wasn’t there

It was a good meal and good value. There wasn’t anything spectacular that would make me want to go back but I wouldn’t rule it out either.

It's a dissent place, food was acceptable, bill not too high for quality of food and service. We expected Hudson view since it's waterfront, but you can't see water from inside the restaurant. I would recommend this place to gluten-free folks since they had a pretty good selection of GF dishes on the menu.

While I really, really want to love the Dolphin due to the location and wanting to support Downtown Yonkers I leave disappointed every time. The food is okay with the highlight of my meal being the oysters - cold and fresh. The paella, while abundant with seafood and chicken was a little bland (would have loved more of that delicious chorizo).

It's the service that leaves me baffled. On a lunch visit over the summer the only server also seemed to be the bus boy (and would be absent for long periods of time) and a simple summer lunch took over 2.5 hours. Not a manager in sight and tables grumbling all around us. During our most recent visit after waiting for our order to be taken I asked our server if there were any specials and he asked if we had received the menu insert, which we had not. Throughout the meal the server would disappear for long periods of time and when at our table seemed annoyed by the whole process. I will go back for the reasons listed above and I hope that the next visit will be better.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The curry corn soup was fantastic, and the salad was refreshing. We had the raw clams, oysters, and shrimp. We loved it. Service was well-timed and friendly. The infused liquor was a great twist and complimented our lunch.

My sisters and I really enjoyed our drinks and food. One suggestion was to lighten up a little on the slat but otherwise, we were happy with the service and the food.
The Thai basil mussels were to die for really great.

Dirty restaurant floors, walls. Bathroom sink look like a moldy morticians sink. Food was like a step up from baby food. The smell of either bad cologne or cheap cover up spray in the dining area was inescapable. I should have left just after being seated, but i didnt due to being w another who never said a word about what was obvious to me. Typical hungry man... food drives him. Thinking back, i should have dissed this place.

I had been to Dolphin in the past, and felt their food was okay. I returned after two years, and was pleasantly surprised by their new, more creative menu. We visited during restaurant week to celebrate my friend's birthday. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered and found it to be a fun, relaxing experience. I had the goat cheese/Kale salad and the salmon entree. Both were fresh and delicious. I also had the cheesecake berry dessert which was light and tasted divine. Overall a pleasant experience in a non-rushed atmosphere. The only negative is that parking increased from $3 to $5 (that's with discount from Dolphin without including valet tip). This additional cost could discourage customers, but I still recommend the restaurant.

Food was ok, paella had minimal flavor. Prices were high for the quality. B
Not many people in the restaurant but service was slow anyway.
