I can't tell you how many times the waiter and the table guy came over to our table. Probably a dozen times. It was very, very annoying. How many times do we have to be asked how is everything. Both
guys were just too much. Once is enough okay? It wasn’t even crowded and food that was not finished was taken away from our table I may have wanted to take those mashed potatoes home with me there was enough left over The cleanup guy was extremely annoying and rude Maybe he was just bored.

We found out about this place through word-of mouth, and were not disappointed. It is a mostly seafood restaurant, that is modern and trendy. The staff was great with our 12-year-old, but I could see us going back there for an intimate date night. There was live music when we went, which was an added plus that our friend hadn't told us about.

We visited for dinner during restaurant week. We walked though the long bar, found the restaurant part and a waiter seated us. The restaurant was smaller than we expected, is very casual but is toward the back of the restaurant space so guests cannot see the waterfront. Our meal was good and service was friendly.

This is my second time dinning at Dolphin Restaurant. I've always enjoyed the food, view and atmosphere. Only issue this time was the service was extremely slow. Not sure if they were short handed or had new staff but it took forever for food to arrive and I had to seek out the waiter just to get the check.

I will eat there again but I truly hope service speed picks up.

I found this place through Google search. Since I live in the adjacent city to Yonkers, I was specific about a waterfront restaurant. I was happy with the reviews. It was easy to find. I did want to sit outdoors by the water but the table were not set up. Not sure why? So you should call first if you want to sit outdoors. The inside was decorated cozy and I can see for a romantic evening where I was sitting could be very quaint. There was a candle on the table. The speciality drink (Dolphintini) I had appeared colorful, small but strong. Which was good! For dinner I had the salmon, which tasted fresh. My meal was plated very nice. The staff was very attentive to me and always asked if everything was okay. Oh boy ! Dessert! I love cheesecake but there's was house made. Every freaking spoonful I moaned in delight. It wasn't a slice neither it was little a mini cake covered with strawberry syrup and whipped cream. I did dined alone so my meal was under $50. Ill be back.

Food was very good. Two of us liked what we had very much. Waitress was very friendly and warm -- just forgot to enter my appetizer order, so I never got it. But what came was very good.

The food was horrible. We started off with crab nachos that smelt like Day old fish. My boy friend had one chip and he said the carb tasted like it was from a can. So we asked to send it back and just get our main dishes Then we get our meal I had ordered the stuffed chicken and it tasted like pure oil. His had a hair in it. When we got our check we noticed the nachos we sent back were still on the check. When I asked the waitress she rolled her eyes at us. A nice birthday dinner for my boy friend turned into a mess. We won’t be returning

I went to the Dolphin Restaurant this past Friday night with my husband, son and a friend. The service was fabulous from the bartender to our waitress. Liz was great, such a pleasant personality. She was comical and very attentive. There was a wedding going on upstairs so it was a bit hectic but overall the staff were directing the wedding guests and kept everything orderly and organized. The food was also delicious. The check was also a lot less than what I expected. So overall, extremely pleased with everything and will definitely go back (very soon). Must try the Dolphini - excellent.

I came here for my birthday get together and was highly disappointed! After waiting over an hour to get my food, it wasn't the greatest. Watching people that came in well after my guests and I did, get their food before my table and I, we were very upset! I asked for a new juice so I can drink it with my meal and I didn't get that until after I reminded the waiter, 30 minutes later. I understand the waiter was the only one for the whole section, but no one in my party ordered anything that took much preparation and the restaurant wasn't that packed. I must say, the waiter was very pleasant despite all of that. I wanted to speak to the manager and I asked another waitress to get the manager for me.........that never happened, so I just left and I don't think I'll ever come back!

Never attend this restaurant after 10pm. My waitress with the afro seemed annoyed that we had such a late reservation. We received our appetizer and entree at the same time. The food was cold the drinks were weak and our order was incorrect. I wish I never booked this restaurant. How dare you serve cold beef to people (steak). I will never return to thia restaurant: Such a nice restaurant and view and such horrible service.

The food was great and we had fun. The restaurant was very understaffed, especially since it was holiday. We sat next to a screaming child and the mother waited 20 minutes for her check. The waitress was very sweet and did the best she could under the circumstances. Everything else about our experience was fine. The crab, spinach and artichoke dip was delicious as was the crispy shrimp. I would definitely give the place another try.
