On a very cold and wet day (11th March 2017) we took the train from Central Terminus to Yonkers, we arrived at the Dolphin at lunch time and were wondering if we should have travelled the 30 minutes to get here on such a freezing day! We received a very friendly Welcome, offered a choice of tables, we ordered a... More

Went here after being treated indifferently at best over at X20 across the street. Had a nice brunch and we were nicely treated even though we had a small baby who was making a little mess by dropping puff snacks on the floor. We would definitely recommend the Sunday brunch.

We liked the Dolphin for coffee and dessert, but dinner was average and high priced. In fact, two coffees and two desserts set us back about $40 with tip (service was good). View south down the Hudson River was, we assumed, part of the price we paid. A pleasant stop in the "new" Yonkers.

Admittedly we were a group of 5 couples but when we got there for our reservations at 7 on a Saturday night, the place was nearly empty. We were seating at 7:30 partly because one in our group was late but then it was as if they did not expect us. We were asked to wait more to have the... More

I enjoy the seared salmon every time I visit. But I go more for the bar area. Nice low white leather couch where you can sit back and relax with the best bar made drinks.

We went five couples. We were the only ones. Twenty minutes to take the orders. 45 minutes for a salad. More than an hour for the entrée waiting time. More waiting for the check. Are they nuts? Food was good and the prices were also reasonable. They are not going to see my pretty face any time soon.

The title sums it up. It was certainly not impressive. I would not go rushing back. It is not convenient to reach or to park, and not special enough to return.

We visited after the Friday Jazz concert @ the waterfront. Our wine and food were very nicely done. We were served with great care, interest and smiles by "Jessie", I would say to ask for her if you could. Thing is..she wasn't actually our server. She was just "taking care of us" because our server was elsewhere. He may have... More

My husband and I visited Dolphin for appetizers and drinks and to sit outside on a hot summer evening. The chef's soup of the night was a cold avocado soup with shrimp salsa. It was absolutely the best cold soup I have ever had; cool, creamy, perfectly seasoned and the shrimp salsa and tortilla chips served with it were a... More
