I had a new waiter, who told me so. He did a good job. A little too attentive, but he was trying hard. Ordered a Mai Tai. Not authentic, but big and tasted good. The really good items I had were broiled scallops and the rolls. Where they killed it was the oysters. Blue Points and Welltons? were both good... More

Overall I like the atmosphere at the bar, but on a recent visit the bar staff was anything but attentive. I had order a light appetizer and a mixed cocktail. It took almost 10 minutes from the time I sat down till I had that drink in front of me. It was too bad the bartender was too busy talking... More

The Dolphin restaurant in Natick, Massachusetts has been a long standing establishment but this was our first time dining at it. The restaurant features seafood and we were looking for freshness and good cooking. It was not bad but we were expecting better. Our food preparation showed more convenience than care. Our fried entrees were all dipped in a heavy... More

We visited Dolphin on Oct 12, 2016 and were quite disappointed in both the food and service. We waited over 55 minutes to get served while others seated after us were served before us. Our waitress was nice but not with the program. Ordered the seafood stir fry but did not like the sauce at all. Only 2 small pieces... More

GREAT BAR and pub room, very popular, great bar snacks, if you want something lighter than a full meal. The bacon scallop appetizer with a small salad is delicious, and an order of the spinach pie makes it more substantial.Sometimes there is a Fresh Tuna and seaweed available..there is lots more!

The Dolphin is a consistent go-to for us. Similar quality to Legal Seafood at a significantly better price, in an ambience that has gotten steadily nicer over the years. Quieter than Legal, easy parking, good food and bar - my wife chose it for her birthday. Service was great: seated right away, every step prompt, no rush through dinner -... More
