Beautiful panoramic view of Mobile Bay with outstanding service. Food was some of the best seafood we have eaten since living in Hawaii.

Mixed bag. Great location that needs a restaurant that serves quality food. Service was inattentive. Quality of servings ranged from adequate to inedible. West Indies salad was a disaster. Steak fatty and and poor cut not able to pass for prime beef. The local Ruth’s Chris should move to this location. Shrimp farm raised. Suggest a drive to New Orleans for decent dining.

We enjoyed our dining experience at Dauphin’s very much. It was a birthday celebration. Our service was wonderful and the view was excellent. Although our intention was to be there at sunset, it was overcast but still beautiful. The West Indies salad, alligator bites, bisque, crab cakes were enjoyed by all. We enjoyed the flourless chocolate cake and créme brûlée also. Yum!

First, I would like to say the best customer service I've ever experienced. The staff care and are actually polite. The food was amazing and not a long wait time. The view was my husband and I's favorite part and I would definitely go again!

We took advantage of the outstanding value of the Early Bird dinner menu. We were celebrating a birthday and everyone involved in our service acknowledged the birthday with warm wishes. The food and service were excellent. We have a very enjoyable evening.

The overall experience was amazing! If I had to critique anything I’d recommend that they add signs inside the building on the first floor because we almost got lost looking for the elevators to go up to the top floor. Other than that, it was an awesome experience!

Manager told hostess to seat us. I made the reservation one month in advance. I requested table near the windows for the view. They sat us in the middle of the restaurant with no view. Our bill was more than $400 for three people. We saw the manager look us up and down before seating us. We felt they profiled us and sat us in the worst place. It was at a place near the kitchen. They ran into the back of my chair with their serving trays/carts 4 times. Clearly our server was fairly inexperienced and had trouble opening wine etc. and we felt over all they treated us as low class citizens. Although we tipped 20% and treated the server with respect we let the manager know about our experience. He said he was sorry but we know that he knew exactly what he did. I made the reservations through open table so he knew what type of customer we are. Yet he ignored that. The food was great but very unhappy with the management and training at this restaurant.

I ordered the Delta omelet and received the Garden omelet. My husband had to drink my water because his tea glass was empty. We are not complainers,so we said nothing,but we won't be back.

Once again our dining experience was outstanding. It was a Birthday dinner for my Wife but that seemed to largely go unnoticed by our server and the hostess. We requested well in advance a table by a window but that too was simply overlooked.
We dine at Dauphin's at least four times per year and it's a upscale fine dining restaurant that has a high price menu but well prepared food.

Wonderful service. Kenneth did a great job. I was a little disappointed that even though the reservation asked if it was a special occasion, there was no mention of my daughter’s birthday. In all fairness I brought this to Kenneth’s attention and he made arrangements for her to receive the Smoking Bon bons which were quite impressive. But I don’t think I should have had to ask for it. Secondly, I had the Cuban sandwich and while it was tasty, it wasn’t a Cuban sandwich. They are never served on a round bun, but on Cuban bread and the fried plantains were simply banana chips. If the menu had said something like Cuban style pork sandwich and banana chips, I wouldn’t have expected something different. Overall the food was good, and I enjoyed it. I will be a back and will know now to ask more questions before we order

I went here during a trip for a conference. The view is fantastic!! The food was excellent, and a good value for what you get. I went on Sunday morning, which is advertised as a "jazz brunch," however the musician didn't start until an hour after the restaurant opened, and my meal was done before the music started. The jazz for brunch should be the whole 4 hours the restaurant is open!

Drove 50 minutes from PNS, Fl. to dine for both lunch and dinner (same day) and very much enjoyed both: polite and attentive service and delightful food, well prepared.

Frequently, venues offering grand views fall down on the food quality; not so here.

Delightful! Highly recommend!

I have been there a number of times and have been satisfied but my last visit was not up to par. I ordered shrimp and grits, the grits were soupy and Luke warm, the shrimp was tiny and no worth the money

Poor service experience that night. Deserts were not very good. Wine selection was not satisfactory. Food and ambiance were good. Maybe an off night.
