“Best sushi ever!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

The Dolphin is a quaint little sushi restaurant in Poipu that provides not only an outstanding sushi selection, but also a wonderful wine list and an amazing grill selection for those adverse to sushi. Service was fantastic and during our stay I Kauai, we actually visited here twice because the food and service were so remarkable. The prices are fair for the quality and amount of food you get. Great dinner choice!

“Best grilled Mahi mahi sandwich”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Ate here twice because I had to have that sandwich one last time before we left.
We also tried a cold fish sandwich, which was also very good.

“Gotta havethe Poke”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you like Poke, this is the place to go. Reasonable prices for a sit down restaurant and fantastic view of the Kauai sunset if you go in the evening.

“Good food, goofy server”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We drove to this restaurant after hearing some good things, thinking we would have a late lunch/early dinner at 4:00. Dinner service doesn't start until 5:00, but they did offer a nice happy hour menu, so we stayed. We ordered a variety of sushi, sashimi, and other unique appetizers, along with some drinks.
Our server, although very friendly, was not quite all together. My husband ordered Asahi, the server commented "good choice," then brought him Sapporo. Oh well. We ordered the artichoke crowns (amazing!! must try) and stuffed mushrooms. He brought the artichokes, telling us they were the mushrooms. We figured it out... All the food was very good; the sashimi was excellent.
Our bill was amazingly low. We did not receive a detailed tab, so we chalked it up to a super great happy hour. On our way out, the server caught us, saying he had given us the wrong bill. We squared-up with him, and laughed it off.
Bottom line: we will return and hope the server is on his day off.
