Traveling and my first time in Mobile. The views were amazing and the food incredible. It is dressy casual which I loved. We had the fried green tomatoes with shrimp for an appetizer and the filet mignon. You must try the Thyme Lemonade! Service is top notch and we will definitely visit again when in town!

We decided to drive from Pensacola to Mobile to have lunch here at the suggestion of a colleague. We were looking for someplace very nice for the day.

The setting is spectacular, on the 34th floor of a downtown building with a panoramic view of the harbor. It was also a crystal clear day and you could see forever. The inside is modern elegant. We were seated right away.

Service was very good. Bread was provided at the table with two types of whipped butter. Wine was delivered promptly and our selections were served professionally and in good time.

Food was just ok. The shrimp chowder was more of a thin soup and the shrimp were very overcooked. A no no for this part of the country. The shrimp and grits were just ok with the shrimp again overcooked. The shrimp, chicken, sausage La Palle bowl was better, but not great. Marinated chicken was quite good, the shrimp over cooked and the sausage small but spicy. We had thought about dessert, but the meal gave us pause.

Prices are average for a nice lunch. The bill was $80 including 4 glasses of wine.

We had hoped for more.

Sunday Brunch. This was our second try and likely our last.
Setting is nice and we are always hopeful. But I think we have given it up now.
We had to just flat refuse the “ LA Paella”. It looked totally unappealing. It had been under the heat lamps long enough to dry out but yet was not hot. And was not interesting anyway. Small shrimp in some white sauce, thin slices of sausage that looked more like pepperoni. Just not OK.
They replaced it with fried shrimp platters. Our expectations by then were low, but even those were not met.
The shrimp were small, the fries were odd. It was edible but that is not what one comes here for. We didn’t even bother with desert.

Caesar salad (gloopy dressing with no flavor) and shrimp chowder were inedible (the shrimp were so over cooked they fell apart in your mouth — something we don’t wish on any human). The alligator appetizer was good.

Service was lacking, especially when you pay the prices that Dauphin’s requires. Multiple times we were without drinks. Took a VERY long time to get our food, which has not been typical of Dauphin’s in the past. There was a larger party who created a lot of unnecessary distraction. They were going between the tables against the windows and posing inappropriately (seductively) for photos. They were up and about the restaurant multiple times throughout our dining experience. It was inappropriate considering the ambiance you expect to have at a high end restaurant. Although the food was delicious, it was not the high end experience that you expect at Dauphin’s. Disappointing.

My wife and I had another wonderful dining experience at Dauphin's! The menu had multiple interesting choices, our selections were well prepared to our specifications, and our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were not rushed, and our food came to us at the appropriate times. The tables were well spaced - so we could talk comfortably. Also, the spacing was very COVID appropriate. The piano music added a very pleasant, upscale ambience to the experience. It was very enjoyable.
