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...

Our party of three visited this restaurant in the center of Natick, MA (route 135) and were thoroughly satisfied with the seafood and the efficiency of our waitress. 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!!

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

Previously, we have had positive experiences at the Dolphin. This time, I ordered a lobster roll. I am very particular about my preferences for a lobster roll. I want both tail meat and claw meat. So many restaurants are using just claw meat and it really doesn't measure up. I checked with the server and she assured me that the... More

This was a familiar name from movie theater advertisements and coupon books, and the "early bird" deals were intriguing, but overall our experience was disappointing. It was large and impersonal and the food wasn't anything special.

I frequent this restaurant a few times a month. The service in the lounge is excellent. The food is always fresh and high quality.
