The crème brûlée is the best thing on the menu. The special filet with crabmeat and shrimp was delicious. The staff is definitely mostly new but pretty friendly. We really enjoyed our date night here.

The waitress never brought water to our table until we finally asked

The Bloody Mary I got didn’t include the usual decorative toppings either

We had a wonderful dinner at Dauphin’s. We were greeted right away and taken to our table with a lovely view of downtown Mobile. TJ provided us with wonderful service throughout dinner filling us in on menu highlights while also giving us some alone time to enjoy our wine. I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly and my partner had the tuna steak (medium rare), also very tasty. We had a very savory fried green tomatoes & shrimp appetizer that I’m still dreaming of.
I’m not one to “rant and rave” much over bread service since I usually skip it but of my goodness their bread is amazing (served warm with two types of butter, one being Hibiscus butter, both made in house). We traveled to Mobile from Atlanta looking for a nice fine dining experience and we believe we found it. Can’t wait to come back to Dauphin’s.

Dinner was nice. Our waitress was nice, and did her job.However she was friendly, no extra conversation, her energy was if she didn't want to be there
.Our waiter last time was outstanding, so that's what I was expecting this time. Overall, my daughter enjoyed her birthday and we will be back

Our service was outstanding. The poke appetizer was one of the best issues I've ever had. My husband's cheese plate was the saddest cheese plate I've ever seen. Both of our soups have the exact same base with just different meats so we weren't impressed there. My entree was definitely not as described and was lackluster. My husband however enjoyed his. The creme brulee was great except for the lace cookie basket that it came in. It was clearly burned. I could tell just by looking at it but the taste after a few bites was too much. My husband's key lime pie was amazing. So overall we were not tremendously impressed with the food. However, our view was spectacular and we cannot praise our server enough. Remy was amazing.

The service was great. We arrived and received excellent service from waitress, Kel. She was very professional & courteous. The food was also delicious. My husband’s steak was over cooked but the flavor was nice. I enjoyed the shrimp and grits and they were delicious. It was a nice dining experience with a beautiful view of downtown Mobile.

Our food was delicious and well cooked but the steaks both desperately needed seasoning. Our server was excellent, friendly and attentive. However there was a mixup with the tables and we were not served for quite some time. The hostess rectified it quickly once it was brought to her attention.

Views of downtown from the top of the building are incredible for Mobile, AL. Service was very good. Food was ok all-around. I ordered the rooster chicken sandwich which was the best of the three meals we had. The steak was decent but under seasoned. The bacon wrapped oysters came out a little cool and seemed like they'd been sitting in a warmer for a while. This place is really cool for its views of downtown and the port and has a nice bar. Good place to meet for a drink.

Beautiful view of Mobile, AL! Sunday brunch menu is at a moderate price point. Selection might be a bit weak, but portions are good. We had a very accommodating waitress. Food was a bit on the average scale, but this is the place to get a spectacular bite of the city and bay! We’d come again if in the area.

Everything about the restaurant was amazing!!! The food was beyond delicious. My fiancé had the Red Lady wine and I had two La Pinas. Which were spot on!!!We were celebrating our engagement and the restaurant was the cherry on top.
Our server, Kel was awesome!!! Very courteous and knowledgeable about the entire menu including the drink menu and specials.
And to double the cherry on top, before the bill came out, the restaurant gave us a congratulatory after dinner treat🥰!!!!
We will be celebrating our one year anniversary back at Dauphins.
