Gracious and hospitable staff, beautiful views, easy listening live music perfectly blended into the background, and exquisite fine dining—all the flair without the fuss. It was a perfect dining experience. Ask to be seated at one of Remy’s tables. You’ll be treated like a VIP!

Our food and service was excellent. The only complaint was the table behind us had a guest who was extremely loud and obnoxious. No fault of the restaurant but it was stressful until they left. We could not hear the waitress or each other while he was there. But overall experience was very nice.

We were disappointed to see that the creme brûlée is not served in a praline bowl anymore. And we would like to see the pork belly app brought back to the menu.

This was our anniversary dinner at what had been touted as the best restaurant in Mobile. I was certainly not impressed. The hostess seemed confused and overwhelmed. We had 7:00 PM reservations but we’re not seated until 7:15 PM when we could see many empty ready tables.
The website made much of the dress code - no open toed shoes, collared shirts, et al. This code was not enforced by anyone.
The food was only average and not hot when delivered.
Even if I were a resident of Mobil, I would not return given the quality and service for the prices charged.

This is seriously one of the better restaurants in Mobile! From the view, to the drinks, to the service, and menu everything was seriously on point. Bonus points even get awarded because the executive chef herself came out to our table & personally spoke with each every one of my dining companions!!! Now that doesn't happen everywhere you go does it!

It is a beautiful view and the food was good albeit a limited menu for entrees. The steak was delicious as was the fish special and the appetizers and desserts. The sides are mediocre. Service was very good.

Our second time at Dauphin's, the first I couldn't have been more pleased or impressed, everything was outstanding, this time, not so much. I do not mind paying the price for my first experience but the food was mediocre at best and with the price I paid, I really want better. The steak was almost flavorless and the crab claws were overcooked (Had to struggle to get the meat off). My fish was pretty good, the martini's were good, the bread good, the pink butter, nectar of the God's. The ambiance is so good, the music was perfect and everyone was friendly. Perhaps the chef was having a bad night, but with several more fine dining options, I am going to have to be talked into coming back.

We had a party of 6, friends and family celebrating Mardi Gras with friends from out of town who had never been to Mardi Gras. We thought the view, food and ambiance of Dauphins's would be perfect for our last night downtown and we were not disappointed. We topped off the evening with a trip downstairs to the Speak Easy run by the same group. Fabulous night cap with the amazing Roman Street playing their signature Jazz fusion in the perfect setting. (Side note, we were told we could bring our wine from Dauphins's downstairs to the Speak Easy, but be warned, that is not the case! We had to discard over half a bottle of very nice wine!) For great food, wine, and ambiance, Dauphin's is one of the best choices in Mobile!

The service and ambiance are top rate. We were there for a wedding anniversary, and all the wait staff wished us a happy anniversary, which was a very nice touch. We had a reservation at 4:00 and were the third couple seated. The table with a view that we requested was perfect. The service was as close to perfect as you could get - Steve was great. The meal left something to be desired. The gumbo was almost cold, and even though it listed all of these different types of meats, there was almost no meat in the gumbo, just collard greens. Still, the flavor was good. The filet mignon was overdone, but still tasty. The complimentary dessert was also a nice touch. All in all it was a nice anniversary dinner, and even though pricey, we will likely be going back.

After having to cancel two previous reservations due to last minute circumstances, we finally made it! We now see what we missed previously. It was outstanding from the moment we walked in until we left. Drinks were perfect, the appetizers were delicious as well as dinner and dessert. We are already making plans for the next outing.

Great atmosphere and ambiance. The food was good but they should have more menu choices. The service was great. The hostesses gave all the women roses for valentines but I didn’t get one. I probably wouldn’t go back.

Went for my birthday. The wait staff was great. They were busy, so it took a little time at first to get drinks. After that, they were very efficient. The head waitress remembered it was my birthday from earlier in the conversation and had the gentleman who plays at the restaurant on Saturday nights come and serenade me with the guitar and sang Happy Birthday. Very sweet and unexpected surprise! Will definitely be back!

We had great service and a great meal
I had shrimp and grits and it was delicious.
I’m so glad they serve wild caught shrimp and NOT IMPORTS
Foreign shrimp have no taste and they’re nasty.
My husband had salmon and it was also delicious.
Also the view it’s awesome
Go there you want be sorry
