“Great Dining Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Went to Dolphin for a birthday celebration and was very pleased with restaurant choice. Dolphin is located by the water, quite close to X2O. We had early dinner reservations for a large group and were immediately seated upon arrival. We had not realized that it was Restaurant Week so it was very busy but service was excellent and we were not rushed. Menu has good selections and prices are reasonable. Overall, a great place to enjoy a great dinner. Only caveat ... parking is a bit of a problem but they do have valet parking and they validate ticket so it's very affordable; if you do use the valet parking, be prepared to wait a bit for your car but we assumed this was due to going on the weekend and Restaurant Week attracting more people. Again, really nice place with good ambiance. We would like to go back when the weather turns warmer as we understand there is also outdoor seating.

“Fabulous Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I am hooked! Absolutely love the dining experience at Dolphins. Starting with the personable staff and decor, you are put at ease the moment you walk in. I have gone several times and had consistently good food and drinks. Must try Elio's signature cocktail and the Lobster ravioli.Always a good time!

“Great experience at Dolphins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The food is awesome I recommend it to anyone. The waitress Carrie is great she is very helpful, if you don't see what you want on menu special orders are easily granted. The drinks are tasty, overall experience was great.

“Great Dining Place for Yonkers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I was told that the Dolphin was a very good restaurant in Yonkers, but not until I tried it could I confirm what I was told. Food was very good, from the Lobsters to the steak and the seafood salad. The appetizers were good although a little skimpy but overall it was a fine dining experience.
