Dolphin is an institution in Natick, but it has seen better days. The service is mediocre, and the food takes too long to arrive. The value for the money is about average, but definitely headed in the wrong direction.

Relatives recommended this restaurant as our preferred seafood place was closed on New Year's Eve. The salmon was overcooked and we got the tail piece. The fried clam strips rubbery, greasy and tasteless. The vegetables were cold. We will never go back.

Entered the restaurant to have a Sunday dinner having just flown in with several colleagues for a business trip. After we finally found someone who could seat us (no one was around when we entered), we sat in the restaurant in which the decor was modern and nice, but the bar dominated the entire experience. They were playing a strange... More

Just had a fantastic dinner of Swordfish and Swordfish Marsalis with shrimp over pasta. Dinner was cooked perfectly all entries came out on time and were delicious. Our server was prompt courteous and cordial. Great place for an evening out. Check out the fireplace room absolutely beautiful.

I went here last week with my wife. I enjoyed the warm atmosphere. We felt very comfortable and each enjoyed our fish entrees. Absolutely we will go back.

We tried Dolphin optimistically for a local seafood restaurant. My wife had the Haddock and I had the seafood mix pasta, the food was utterly bland and tasted like the kitchen reheated frozen seafood. Service was proper and decor is a bit dated, but the food was a huge disappointment. It is unfortunate as it could be a good local... More

We often find ourselves meeting friends for dinner at The Dolphin Bar. We always receive a warm welcome from the manager. The menu is great because the food is very good and the bar menu prices are really inexpensive for such great seafood. We recommend the lobster sliders, the bacon +scallops and the pork sliders , the best in the... More

Whenever I desire fresh seafood, the Dolphin is the place to dine. They serve the freshest seafood including a nice selection of oysters. The bar menu is a fantastic value. I usually order the lobster sliders with a side of fries and cold slaw paired with a sauvignon blanc. The service is great. I highly recommend the Dolphin.
