It was my first time there. We got sat near the windows. I had to walk over to check out the scenery. It really does have the best view of Mobile bay and downtown. I ordered Flounder strips for lunch and got the squash and fries as sides. All of my food was delicious. Our server was very friendly, she made sure if we didn't like something, we could swap it out for something else. Overall, I highly recommend to check out.

Food was very good but disappointed in the main course, the prime rib was cold in the center... apparently had been refrigerated or frozen before blackening, and did not warm it enough for serving...

As a NY/NJ person, I found Dauphin's to be a fascinating and delicious dining experience. Its setting on the 34th floor of the Bank Building is so sophisticated and elegant. The food presented was delicious -- both the fresh oysters and fish of the day with unusual accompaniments were great. However, I'm not used to Mobile's super friendly service, which seemed a bit too easy going and friendly for the formal, sophisticated setting. What the heck, who cares, it was a lovely meal.
My one problem was with dessert: the super-special, berry passion & ice cream thing that is prepared on a cart in front of your table. Please eliminate the 1/2 of butter that is put in the cooking pan to start its preparation. This is not necessary. It made the otherwise delicious, flaming dessert much too rich.

Have eaten at Dauphin's numerous times with excellent food and service. This night was not a good experience. Both my wife's fish and mine were tough and the sauces were gelatinous. The crab on my Oscar sauce was not fresh and had a strong odor. Really, the only thing good was the brulee for desert.

3 appetizers and dessert. Tuna Poke, pork belly, beef carpaccio, creme brulee. The appetizers were presented beautifully, delicious, and clearly prepared by experienced chefs. The creme brulee was a large portion, presented in a edible caramel bowl and the best brulee we have ever enjoyed. Prices very reasonable and they offer a "quick lunch" on the menu that we will attract folks working or visiting in the downtown area.

The view is from the 34th floor, stunning as you take in the shipyards and passage into the gulf. This is white tablecloth dining; dress is casual but you won't be out of place if you dress for a special occasion. The parking garage is adjacent and convenient, since on street parking is typical downtown scarce.

The bar looks very nice and included a pianist on this Saturday evening. For casual or special occasion - we were impressed and will return soon.

I went yesterday with a friend. I tried the bread with coconut butter. I thought the butter was inventive and it was a fine prep to the meal. I had the gumbo, which was great. They bring it out with a hot sauce and I wish I could remember the name of it because the sauce was really good. I tried two entrees - the shrimp Po’ Boy with fries and the catfish with cheesy grits and greens. The Po’ Boy was excellent, but a little difficult to eat. The catfish was good. The greens and fries were good. The standout was the cheesy grits. Service was pretty terrible. We had reservations, but still had to wait quite a bit before we were seated and the place was fairly vacant. Our server was having a rough day. I’m sure he’s a great guy. He asked us how we were, which we responded politely and then asked him the same. He quickly responded, “not great”. He didn’t seem in the weeds or anything, he was just having a bad day. He told us it was his first lunch shift, which explained his lack of knowledge of the menu. When I asked for fries with my Po’ Boy, he looked at the menu and asked, “do we have those?” He was pretty unwelcoming and obviously not excited to be there, which unfortunately impacts a restaurant experience quite a bit. I was a server for several years and I get it. But if I’m rating the place, I gotta be honest...
