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... read 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

Just a few years ago the Dolphin was the place your grandparents went. It appears that the next generation took over, reinvent the menu and seafood cooking methods, making it into a hidden gem of a place. You can now get a tuna steak that is appropriately raw in the middle, and clams that are flavorful and delicately handled. What... More

The people who go here have been going here for at least 40 to 50 years. They are loyal, but not looking for a great meal.

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.
