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.

I met a friend for lunch and it was a very pleasant atmosphere. The view of the Hudson River is great! I had the shrimp sandwich and my friend had the skirt steak and instead of french fries we opted for the salad. The food was very fresh and very delicious. I would definitely go there again and try the... More

We met another couple for dinner, two of which wanted a whole fish. We went on a holiday evening rather early (5:00). I cannot comment on how busy or service usually is because it was rather empty at that time. I suppose this is a busy restaurant at other times. Parking is difficult so bring at least ten quarters for... More
