Lobster night out

My husband and I had dinner there two weeks ago and really enjoyed it. We had broiled lobster that was delicious and we shared crab nachos that were huge and also delicious. My martin was oh so good and being on the Yonkers waterfront was perfect.

I wouldn't brag about it, but the Cesar salads are great and the atmosphere is nice.. Visit when the weather is nice, so you can enjoy your meal outdoors.

Had been at this restaurant before and had a good experience. Well, not this time ... service was terrible! Some of the menu choices were not available and server was not able to suggest other options as she did not know the menu. She keep going back to get answers and would forget what we ordered. We were not happy... More

First encounter was an impromptu lunch for someone's birthday. This ultimately led to same person booking their next year's full-blown birthday party. Lunch was great! Servers are good but could have been more attentive. Birthday party was really great -- private upstairs! Bartender great. Most servers for birthday were good to great. Sound system glitch... But it worked out fine.

Joined a group of friends for lunch there late Summer, Good service - clams on the half shell and a fish entree were fresh and delicious, They parked the car for less than I would have paid at the municipal lot!

We have been to brunch a few times at Dolphin. The mussels in creamy garlic sauce are fantastic!! Meatball appetizer had amazing sauce, and the fact that they have a whole wheat pasta on their menu is a plus. Can't beat the Brunch special on drinks either!

Dolphin is a good spot. I have had lunch and dinner there. Food is always good and service is fine. It's not too expensive either.

Tried Dolphin for the first time last Saturday. Truth be told, we were shut out of a previous restaurant choice and went here as a backup. The bar scene is quite active. Eating areas around the bar are more desirable, but can be noisey. When the weather is warmer, I've always seen a good outside bar/restaurant scene. Food was good... More

First off let me say that the food was excellent. Wait service was excellent as well. In general I have no complaints. That being said if you find yourself in Yonkers down by the water The Dolphin is a good bet. We did go there for lunch and it was during "Restaurant Week" on Wednesday so we did not have... More

The atmosphere was great, location beautiful, and food was delicious. The service was A+. The place was clean. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I went during nighttime but I'm sure during the day it would be just as amazing.
