Excellent dining experience. Great for special occassions. Incredibly friendly, knowlwdgeable and attentive staff. Wonderful view of downtown Mobile day or night. Be aware it is a bit pricey for the dinner meals compared to lunch menu.

I was looking forward to an awesome evening at dauphins. I was a little disappointed. The view and ambiance are amazing.

Our food was very slow to come out. My chicken was like rubber and I was afraid to eat it bc I thought I may get sick or something. I literally never send things back and I felt terrible having to do so.

I then had to order a steak bc I didn’t want to wait forever for another chicken to cook knowing it would take too long. My steak was tough and not cooked to my request but at this point I felt horrible and wouldn’t dare send it back. I don’t like having to send anything back ,much less two things!

My husband had fried shrimp and said it was wonderful. I thought maybe they would comp my meal or at least charge me for the chicken instead of the steak. They did not. Instead they offered to give us dessert on the house

The dessert was absolutely wonderful!!! I think now I would go back only for dessert. I have seriously had much better food at restaurants far cheaper than this.

I was disappointed bc I truly expected to absolutely love it and want to go back. $120 of food and about two hours of time that I feel was on overall let down.

The server we had was great and we tipped him well bc it wasn’t his fault the food wasn’t cooked correctly or the bill wasn’t adjusted to our liking.

This was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. It was the first time my husband has ever been there and I have only been there for lunch. We have now found a new favorite restaurant. The views were fabulous from our perfect corner sit. Our food was delicious and the service was spot on. Dauphin's is certainly a gem in downtown Mobile.

Another teacher and I were in Mobile for a conference and she had never been to Dauphin’s. I wanted to her have the experience and it was wonderful! She was in awe of the view. The food was fabulous as always. Service was great! Such a great treat for the two of us as we are usually eating lunch with little kids!

Excellent experience. The only flaw was a baked oyster dish that was dramatically overcooked. They did not charge for it and offered to replace it. Raw oysters were great. Entrees were very good and service was attentive and engaging. Beautiful views. Very good wine list.

Surroundings, atmosphere, happy hour and service was very good, however its goes down hill from there. Happy hour included a purchase of a cheese tray but the only crackers available were saltines. I felt like I was at Wendy's. C'mon guys, your an upscale place, serve some assorted crackers with the cheese tray. One of your associates said they have regular negative comments about this issue, but "our management does not listen".
The food was WAY TOO spicy. You really could not taste the food because it was all covered up with hot spices. Isn't the food the most important at any eating establishment? You flunked. As a side note I was asked when making the reservation if this was a special occasion and I advised it was our 52nd anniversary. Was asked the same question at check-in, the same question when seated--gee, this must be important, right? Wrong? Why didn't the GM get off his/her you know what and come out and at least offer congratulations? You guys remind me of the Raiders NFL team. They are in the big league , but don't play like it. I am sure you will be successful without my business. Oh' how important word of mouth is. THanks for asking about my experience--now go figure it out.

Have been here numerous times for both dinner and Sunday brunch. Food and drinks have always been excellent. We always ask for Stevie for his professionalism and knowledge of the menu and ingredients. We always have interesting discussions with him. Dauphin's is on the top of our list and well worth the drive from Pensacola.

The service was marginal and my entree of Pecan Crusted Fish was so tough that a knife barely cracked the coating. Management replaced it but the overall experience, from the minute we called for directions as we drove around the city searching for a stand alone building, was disappointing.
