I've heard lots about the Dolphin and was very much looking forward to going. Great atmosphere and very nice wait staff. The menu was plentiful. Maybe I should have chosen from the 'plain' seafood offerings, but I decided to select one of the 'Chef Choice' options. I ordered stuffed sole with a lemon butter sauce. The fish and stuffing were... More

Good fresh fish but a little "pricey" for entrees! Mussels are great here and my favorite is Seafood Diablo!

Manager upset that I didn't want to pay for the dinner I never received. Pretty funny if my wife didn't want to start throwing things. Manager did finally agree... More

I was staying in Natick for work and am mostly a pescatarian. And, when you think Boston you think seafood (or beans I guess). I didn’t want the standard Boston area Legal Seafood because it feels so much like the big huge chain it is (and the servers never know anything about the fish) so The Dolphin was recommended by...

Two of us had fried clams and one had lobster, steamers & mussels. ALL EXCELLENT. The ambiance is very good and the prices are reasonable. Our waitress, Inna Fedortseva, was super--efficient, very...

We went to our bi-yearly luncheon of retired bankers. Always enjoy the Dolphin. They know us and know what we like. Service was spot on. Our waiter, Luis, was very cordial and brought us everything we needed. They even asked if we wanted separate checks! Can't wait for our October get together.

Getting fresh quality seafood at a great fair price and to know that you do not have to go to the bigger advertised seafood restaurants is a delight. Always the atmosphere and cleanliness of the restaurant is a sparkle in your eyes as well as a warm reception from the staff!!

Thursday April 10th 2014 joined a group of friends for lunch . First time dining there and it was a positive experience. There were three specials. Each was ordered by someone in the group. I ordered the lunch special of fried clams and they were excellent. Even the cold slaw was yummy. All five of us were pleased with the... More
