I think the this restaurant is getting back on its feet after COVID - the food was not up to the usual standards that we've come to expect. Service was fine- they were training some new wait staff who were lovely but this does tend to make things a bit uneven.
This used to be one of our special occasion sites but I think we'll put it on hold for a while and look for another seafood place.
Really great food and service!
Such lovely, lovely people! Great food, great value and calm, relaxing environment for a nice meal with our parents. The chowder was amazing!!!
excellent menu selection, food was very good,staff were friendly and assisted each other however there were gaps in service with long waits between seating to getting drinks to odereing and then getting the bill, overall however i highly recommend
the menu need to be updated. I went because I search for the menu at OpenTable when I got their it was a complete different menu. I asked the waitress and she told me it was change the I should check their website instead. other then that the food was good waitress was very nice.
Good exceptional waitstaff attentive
Great food and service. Will definitely come back!
Always excellent food and service at the Dolphin Restaurant.
We have loved this restaurant ever since they opened. Great food especially the seafood and great prices too!
Family Valentine’s dinner. Service was great. Pleasant staff and attentive. Nice selection of food. Even though it’s mainly seafood they still had plenty for our non-seafood family. Food was great. Would definitely recommend.
Martini🍸was perfect and big. Great oysters, and all the food is excellent.
Dolphin Seafood is a gem in the Metrowest and it is heads above a lot of the other seafood restaurants in the area. The fish is really tasty and the pricing is very reasonable. I recommend checking this place out right in downtown Natick.
Excellent dinner all around! Appropriate social distancing, pleasant and attentive service, and delicious food. The cocktails were exquisitely made! We will be heading back soon.
Went to celebrate Friend’s Bday midweek. Exactly what I was looking for. Good food, service and socially distant! Will be back!
Absolutely love this restaurant!! The food is always amazing! The staff are always friendly and they do a great job!
I will be back soon!
Great place with fresh dishes and great service! Highly recommend
Just not what we expected. A lot of salt and a lacking environment. Its a place for the older generation.
Their food and service are both really good. Due to the pandemic, we sat outside, which is why I didn't rate the ambience higher. It's under a tent with plastic walls that keep out rain or wind. They also have a heater for colder weather. If you like raw oysters, there prices can't be beat if you arrive during their daily special hours.
We were not impressed with the food. The swordfish was generous but also overcooked and dry. The Maryland crab cakes were mushy. It’s like food you’d cook at home if you were following a new recipe for the first time and you weren’t an experienced cook.
Open table not accepted, we arrived at the reservation time and they were closing.
A wonderful dining experience with delicious food, a lovely environment and a pleasant and efficient server. A perfect 10!
Great cioppino, so much seafood. Shrimp, lobster tail, scallops, clams, mussels in a tasty broth with tomatoes and onions, big portion.
We are never disappointed when we dine at the Dolphin. The food is always exceptional, as is the service. Prices are reasonable for the high quality of the meals. The drinks are fabulous and a definite bargain!
Delicious fresh salmon
Ahi Tuna special was excellent -- perfectly prepared. Steamed mussels were also very good though the broth could use a bit more seasoning -- garlic or fresh herbs??
We made reservations via open table and were promptly seated by a courteous person at the restaurant. Our server was very attentive and personable. Helpful and available without being intrusive. The food, as always, was good and reasonably priced. We met friends there and were able to speak with one another without raising our voices and could discuss things of a confidential nature without fear of being overheard. Over all, a fine experience. We have been to the Dolphin many times in the past and will continue to patronize the restaurant.
Good seafood and atmosphere. Has a bustling bar area that is in close proximity to the dining area
Best Broiled Swordfish ever!
Very friendly staff, but mediocre food and setting. Convenient if you’re going to TCAN, but other than convenience, no big reason to go there. Disappointing to find old school fried food in an up and coming neighborhood.
This is definitely a restaurant for an older crowd. The food was fine, but on the blander side. Not remarkable or memorable. The ambiance of the room was just okay.
Great food. Wonderful entertainment at bar but at a volume where you could still have a conversation
Great dinner. Swordfish portion was excellent. Don't remember what my friend ordered but it was excellent too :-)
As always, the food and service were exceptional! The dinner was a special occasion to celebrate a friend’s birthday and everything was perfect.
Only disappointment was that when we asked for our senior discount, we were told since we ordered the special we could not have the discount. there is no indication on the add for the discount that there were exceptions.
Food was not very good. Will not be going back.
We have dined at Dolphin several times in recent years, and always find the experience to be extremenly satisfying. Great choice of seafood, reasonable prices, friendly service.
One friend returned her meal - a fish dish. No flavor at all. Replaced with a scallop dish which was okay. Two of us got crabmeat filled ravioli with lobster sauce. It was just okay but was luke warm. Steak tips were good. My husband had a fish dinner but said it was that good. Some of us ordered coffee/tea, but no dessert. Tea was hot but the coffee was bordering on very cool. Won’t be running back here.
Our waitress was very nice and apologetic but maybe she should have not charged us for one of the meals and the coffee. She did offer to get more coffee but by that time, we were ready to leave. I understand it was New Year’s Eve, but think the chef could have done a much better job. Won’t be going back there anytime soon.
Two birthdays. Always enjoy eating there. Reasonable prices, good food & friendly service
Food was terrific as was the service. Only complaint I had was it was super cold inside and the hostess wasn’t exactly well put together. But again we came for the food and the fried oysters were terrific
