Good for seafood

It's been around for years and the fish is quite good. The staff are nice and generally service is good. The plainer meals are best. The stir fry and pasta dishes are not recommended. The small bar is fine and seems to be popular. However, the overall ambiance is kind of strange - the... read more

Went in on a Saturday afternoon. This place was dead but that wasn't the problem, it smelt really fishy and the decor was very outdated. We sat at the bar and the bar tender was very non attentive. I ordered a mixed drink and it was very sugary and little alcohol. After waiting for a longtime to get the attention... More

Over the years we have eaten at Legal, Fish, and other seafood restaurants in the area -- but have always found Dolphin to deliver the best. Dolphin serves it plain - or nearly plain so you can enjoy the taste of the fish -- unlike others that want to want do cover it with all sorts of sauces to hide... More

The Dolphin is not what it used to be. My wife and I went to dinner on a Tuesday eve and before 6:30 the restaurant, which was not crowded or busy, ran out of their signature lobsters. Both our cocktails had to be returned as they were made incorrectly and the second round was incorrect as well. The manager demonstrated... More

Went on a recent Tuesday night with family and my has this placed changed. The interior is classier and has some historic Natick images (thumbs up!!!)

In Natick for a concert at TCAN. Dinner before the gig at Dolphin,s. Food well presented and tasty. Warm bread was a nice touch. Price / quantity ratio as expected for a $$$ rating. Atmosphere with mixed ages of patrons was interesting to observe. We had a corner table near the bar yet could hear our conversation Did not need... More

We enjoy this restaurant very much. The food is consistently good and the waitstaff are very nice. They have early birds and even early, early birds so everyone can get a bargain! They have a large menu and even some items for those that don't like fish or seafood. You can get a delicious meal for much less than Legal's... More

We arrived at 5:45 and were seated at a quiet booth in the back. Perfect for a couple who haven't had a lot of down time this week. We ordered a nice bottle of wine that wasn't outrageously priced and ordered our dinner. The rolls were fresh out of the oven and piping hot. Delicious. The atmosphere was nice. There... More
