A nice place in downtown Natick, good staff and good prices. Raw oysters for $9/half-dozen, Wellfleets and Bluepoints, which is better than a lot of places. I had the Trout Picatta, which was very good but could have used more sauce. I don't remember what...More

I really like it at the Dolphin, fresh well prepared seafood every time. My favorite is the Ahi Tuna. We like to sit in the bar side of the room. The service is always very good, enjoy having George as a waiter.

The Dolphin has good service, very good food and a very comfortable atmosphere, right in downtown Natick. They do an excellent job hosting events in their upstairs function rooms.

Extensive menu, which was nice. Service was fine. Food came out hot, but there was nothing special about this place. Was good, but was missing the wow that would bring me back. Parking around the restaurant (small lot, and street parking) to me makes this...More
