my husband and I were there for lunch. Big view from 34th floor over one of the ugliest parts of Mobile, AL. But the restaurant itself was nice, great service and good (not great) food. Had the paella which was different. Don't expect it to be like any you've ever had before. There were little piles each of rice, chicken, 3 or 4 very tiny shrimp, mushrooms, sausage and peas. I always object when the shrimp you get in a Gulf restaurant are small when you practically step on shrimp when you wade in the water. While the ingredients did not work together to form a dish, each element alone was okay. My husband had the pot roast with mashed potatoes, greens and spicy white corn. The pot roast was good. The salad with strawberries was okay as was the shrimp/corn chowder. Staff were friendly and professional. Prices were inexpensive. While I have no specific complaints, I do not see any reason to go back. I just personally prefer a more imaginative menu and preparation.

I had reservations at 730. I arrived at 730. The hostess told us to have a seat in a common area while we await our table. At 743 I went to the host station and asked "what's the purpose of having reservations and still have to wait" I was told they could be preparing a table. But w/ reservations the table should be prepared ahead of time I thought. Well as we were walking to be seated, I couldn't help but notice all of the empty tables, even with every other table, tables were still available for us to had go straight to our seats. The waitress was awesome,.food was good. But I still don't know the purpose of reserving there

Great view and ambiance. Waitress not very attentive, especially in coming to get our order after providing the menus. Excellent food. Cost at the high end for this area. Bill for two persons, each with one glass of wine, no appetizers, no desert, was $95.

This was our 2nd trip to Dauphin's. Our first trip was amazing! This time, our food was not as good. The Paella was dry and the peas were pretty much burned. The shrimp in the omelet were so heavily seasoned, I had to take them out and not eat them. So this trip, the food was disappointing, but the atmosphere, service and view CANNOT be beat!

The things our teens ordered were much better, so you might opt for those. The Royal Rooster chicken sandwich and the Shrimp Tacos!

Had a birthday reservation for 6 but when we arrived they’d given the table away. We had to wait. The food is just okay. It’s not great but not bad. I’m from New Orleans and worked in the hospitality industry so I’m a harsh food critic. They put sweet and sour sauce in the fried alligator and my fish was unseasoned and not fully cooked. The waiter was a bit preoccupied and had a couple issues but he eventually got our drinks out. The piano player was amazing and the view is spectacular. This is a place I’d go for drinks again. I’ve eaten here twice and I just don’t wanna keep doing so. Lol.

Overall my first experience here was awesome !! My server Kaitlyn was amazing and I will definitely request her service the next time we dine in. We were a party of 5 and we really had an amazing time. Great atmosphere, great drinks & great food!! The only suggestion I have is that the Menu is expanded. I had to settle for pasta for my entree because the food selection was very vague. That’s the only disappointment that I encountered. Will return. 😊
