Food was excellent. Service was very good. Very loud and difficult to talk. Overall we would go back.
The food was awesome and our server, Carly, was great!
While expensive very much worth it
Food was amazing:)
The Dancing Marlin is a wonderful dining. We love the wine flights and so many tasty dishes. We had the Fall specials - an amazing apple/cheddar flatbread, scallops on a pumpkin sauce (amazing), and the seasonal pork dish. A great dining experience.
Food and service was excellent. We went to Dancing Marlin to celebrate my husband’s birthday. First time eating at Dancing Marlin and we will be back. Our waitress was so informative and super sweet!! My husband had a great bday!!
Have not been to he Dancing Marlin since 2018. Dining there last Tuesday was as we remembered the experience. Great food and half priced wine night. Service was excellent. We will try to dine there a little more often.
Sat downstairs, in a basement with no windows. Although it was clean and decorated, it was still a basement. The service was extremely poor and unbelievably slow. Received a cocktail after 25 minutes that had absolutely no taste. Asked the waitress to replace the cocktail and waitied an additional 20+ minutes for the cocktail. The food was served minutes after receiving the original cocktail. Asked for ice in between so we could drink water and that took 20 minutes to be brought to the table. Absolutely horrific service. Food was good. Paid full price for the tasteless cocktail and its replacement! Not returning. Plenty of other restaurant options that provide above poor service and fairness in their charging practices.
Wonderful wine selections and delicious fresh food. The beet salad was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone I know
Awesome as usual.
Everything was delicious and the service was great. Can’t wait to go back!
Great food, but the restaurant itself is way way way to small. Expand please!!
This was such a fun experience! I went with my family to celebrate mom's birthday, and Carly was so helpful and fun. Thanks for everything!
Annual birthday celebration, only this time we chose the dancing marlin. My third visit I was never disappointed and boy was this the winner. Our server suggested the scallops, I was on the fence. Yet, after the first bite I was beyond over it I was in someone else's yard. Pleasant fall notes were added to compliment the season of autumn. And then... we had the carrot cake. So untraditional, so well thought out, so delicious.... just get the carrot cake first. And throw out the idea of a diet and open up. The menu is a compilation of delicious ideas. Just bring a friend or two
Our waitress Katie N was attentive without being intrusive, and the food is always outstanding!
Bar service while waiting on a table was fair at best. Table we sat at was stuffed between two other tables and not very comfortable in that setting.
I am a long-time customer since they first opened. They have a good business model with an ever-changing menu with many unusual and interesting items. The quality is always high and the service is upbeat and effective. My criticism is it tends to be a little pricey and the noise level can make conversations difficult.
Dancing Marlin is a true south suburban gem! From the unique dining options to the wonderful wait staff and ambiance this is not a place to miss!
We are seated right away... The blonde server came over and gave us water than ignored us for at least 10/15 minutes. During this time I watched her wait on another table taking their order and to go to the bar where she was nibbling on food. My husband had to stop her as she going to check on that other table and asked her if we could order. Shortly after she brought the wrong order to our table and acted annoyed when told what she brought was incorrect.
Food was amazing. Great quality. Server seemed a little new. Will definitely go back again.
My husband and I have been going to Dancing Marlin for years. Always excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.
Food and drinks never disappoint!!! Literally anything you pick is excellent. Personally I would try the brisket and gnudi! Ask for Carly. She’s an excellent server!!
Great food. Great service. Love how attentive but not over bearing the wait staff is.
Great food. Good service
Great food great drinks...good times
The atmosphere is lively, not a place for quiet conversation. But that’s fine because it’s a great restaurant with outstanding food and drinks. Service is excellent and I’ll be back for sure.
Fantastic experience and amazing food!
We like this place and we arrived at 8:30pm, 30 minutes earlier than our reservation but they were able to seat us. The only frustration is that by this time on a Saturday night, they were out of 8 of their dishes. I can understand running out of a few items but the waitress kept rattling off what they were out of. I feel the kitchen needs to do a better job of inventory planning. I realize that items that are smoked and take a lot of pre-planning may run out early and they could not replace. But many basics were sold out relatively early in the evening for a weekend (Including Kale!).
Service was fantastic - thanks Martina. We tried several dishes and all were delicious would definitely go back maybe try sitting outdoors if weather permits.
I treated my husband for his birthday. We booked a reservation early so that we could get a quiet time together without the kids. Everything was perfect. We come here about once or twice a year. We would come more often if the menu changed, but we still find this to be a 5 star restaurant that all couples should visit.
We love this place, so much variety and the food is delicious. The one downside is that it’s pretty tight seating and very loud, hard to focus on your conversation. Otherwise wonderful, we love the place!
It was pretty loud and the food was pricey but delicious.
Been here several times and have never had a bad experience. Food and service is always great.
Our server, Katie K, was great. So friendly and had great suggestions. The food here never disappoints (neither does half price wine bottle night!)
Amazing as always my FAVORITE restaurant ❤️
Service was excellent, food was phenomenal - even something so simple like pancakes were spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg really nicely! I’ll definitely come back.
Fun sharing little plates and trying different things!
We had such a great time! The variety and quality of food is excellent. The cocktails are fabulous. We love it here.
Enjoyed the experience. The lighting was a touch too dim for my liking, but otherwise I enjoyed the small plates to share. It made for a more interesting experience.
