I am a fan of shrimp and grits —- the dish I had Sunday was the best shrimp and grits I have had in Mobile

The food was fabulous the ambiance wonderful and service was flawless. It was my wife’s birthday and the entire staff made her feel special from the minute we walked in the door. The view is spectacular located on the 34 floor of the Bank Trust Building in historic downtown Mobile.

I was hoping for a better food experience than I had last time. I was here. The view is magnificent, the bar is very cool but the food misses the mark every time. I had the Tuna Dauphin island. The tuna was relatively bland, I had 2 bones which is very unusual for Tuna. The asparagus ALMOST tasted canned and the potatoes were gummy. My son had the shrimp and grits and they tasted like they had cinnamon in them or something weird. I’ll go back for a drink and the view but that’s it.

Love the setting and the free parking. Service was excellent. The salad tasted like it was made the day before. My chicken was ok. Bread was nothing to write home about. Deserts, bread pudding was fair. Husband sent his stuffed flounder back and they took it off the bill.

I visited Dauphin in the past and the experience was awesome. I was so excited to bring my friend for her birthday because I bragged so much in the service but this time it was horrible. I will not return

The ambiance may be the best in Mobile, and the service was very good. But, if you are going to charge over $40 a plate then it best be amazing otherwise you are just arrogant. I could've had a betrer tasting meal at a restraunt that would charge considerably less, and because of that I would probably not comeback or recommend the restraunt to anyone.

1. Too loud.
2. Wish dress code was enforced. People in t-shirts.
3. Chardonnay was not buttery as advertised.
4. Steak had no flavor. Had to order black and blue horseradish sauce. Flounder was good.
5. Always looking around for servers. Wine empty a long time.
6. $50 for a steak? I can buy 4 much better filets from Mosley's.

I have already discouraged others from patronizing this establishment. We were underwhelmed by the atmosphere and food. The food was subpar. Steak lacked seasoning, and why ask if we are celebrating something special (which we were, birthday and anniversary) if you aren't later going to acknowledge in a classy manner. The atmosphere was offensive for such an exclusive restaurant. We wore cocktail dress and coat. Yet others wore tennis shoes, shorts and ball caps. Half way through our meal we both began sweating as if the air conditioner had gone out. Needless to say, we will not be patronizing Dauphins again and I will not recommend. And this review is written with my regret bc we were both excited to try a new place in Mobile. We will stick to Ruth's, Felix's, Camilla Cafe or Tamara's. However, we enjoyed the view of Mobile Bay.

We went to Dauphin’s for our anniversary. The view of Mobile was absolutely beautiful. We ordered the cheese plate as an appetizer and it was delicious. I ordered the Swordfish for my dinner and my wife ordered the eggplant. My wife thought the egg plant was too spicy, so I asked if she could order something else. They were very apologetic and brought out the menu for her to review again. She really didn’t see anything else she would like on the menu (she is very picky). She asked if they could just do a pasta without the seafood. The chef asked her if she would like an Alfredo pasta that wasn’t even on the menu. The pasta was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I were celebrating our 4th Anniversary while also on vacation. We decided to eat here for our celebration. Using OpenTable, we made a reservation. We were seated rather quickly and immediately were assisted by our waiter Stevie P. His recommendations were amazing. The drinks, appetizers, bread and butter, entire meal, and dessert was worth every penny! My filet minion was cooked perfectly and so was my wife’s lobster tail. We ordered the cream brûlée for dessert and was blown away. The decorated the plate for our Anniversary. The also brought out a second dessert as a token of appreciation. Oh and did I forget to mention the view? It was breathtaking!

All around, one of the best high end restaurants we have ever been to! If you’re in Mobile for a special event, definitely check this place out! The price is rather high, but with everything mentioned above, it’s completely worth every penny!

My wife and I had two different fish dishes. Both unique. Literally the best tasting fish we’ve ever had. Great view and great service. Go just before dark and dine until after to get the best view of the bay.

The food was delicious. My husband had the cowboy steak cooked medium and I had Tuna cooked medium with a added lobster tail . Asparagus was not good but my mashed potatoes were good. The alcohol beverages are over priced. The key lime slice was over priced and not of good quality. The view was amazing. It reminded my husband of Seattle Washington back when he was in the military. The service was great. The complimentary chocolate at the end was not good. Y’all should at least give a piece of pie .. especially after spending 200+ dollars.. still I say the food was delicious..

Pretty good place for a date night with the wifey :)

The food we had was really good, my wife had the filet mignon and myself the NY Strip steak, both were excellent cooked and very tasty. Might not be the cheapest place on earth but in my opinion definitely worth every penny. Something (most) people won't do every day anyways...

Upon arrival one elevator was out of service. Which would be ok, but is it necessary to show the work being done to patrons? Close the door until work continues. When walking into the restaurant to the right of the hostess stand is a filthy galley. They could easily use a partition to hide the unsightly area. When seated at our table the wall was covered in white spot stains from cleaner or something and the window frames were dirty. These items could easily be cleaned up if pride was taken in the establishment. It makes me wonder, if what I can see is this dirty, how clean or dirty is what I can’t see? The head waiter hardly knew how to properly greet or approach guests, while the assistant was very kind and respectful. The food was another disappointment. I have had swordfish many times, never has my steak been sliced to half thickness and overcooked to well done. I have been to many fine dining establishments. The only thing that makes this restaurant “fine dining” is the view, and only if you are seated on the bay side. Overall I would put this in a moderate dining category and am not likely to return, because I can find better service and food at other restaurants.
