We love the unique food selections. The quality of the food is very good and the service is excellent. We have our favorites, but Katie made some great suggestions.
Wonderful as usual! And it was so nice to be able to sit outside on November 8th! Food was fantastic, drinks were fantastic. Keep it up Dancing Marlin!
Fantastic as always. It was my first dine out experience since the pandemic began, but with weather in the 70s we couldn’t pass up a chance to eat on the patio before the temperatures turn for good. Social distancing measures were in place and the staff was masked, but that didn’t dampen our enjoyment one bit. Emily was wonderful — she was in great spirits, was very attentive, made great recommendations, and arranged for the bone marrow (our favorite) to be available for us even though it isn’t on the lunch menu. The food was phenomenal, as usual. We can’t wait until we’re able to visit again.
Very easy to make reservations
Very nice atmosphere
It was my second time visiting Dancing Marlins, but my husbands first! We loved it!!!! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so romantic! Due to Covid the place was a little quieter than the last time I was there, but it we have absolutely no complaints. Our server was adorable and so kind and patient with us!!!
Service was outstanding. The food was so fresh and delicious. The drinks were superb. Can definitely taste the quality of food and dedication by chefs. We were so happy that oysters were a special! We will be back again.
We tried a variety of dishes. Chicken bites, cauliflower and calamari are excellent choices to start your dining experience. Entrees and drinks did not let us down. Good service and good food made a wonderful dining experience.
Loved that there was outdoor seating and everything followed social distancing guidelines. Although a bit pricey, food and service were amazing! Had a great time1
We love this place!
This place never disappoints. Our service was outstanding on this visit. I love their cocktails and seasonal flavors. The tuna nachos are my new fave!
Great food and service!
This is the first time I’ve been to Dancing Marlin where I had a poor experience. All the other times I’ve dined there have been fine. Unfortunately this time, it was not good. It first started when I received the wine I ordered in a very visible dirty wine glass. There were greasy finger prints all along the glass. I asked for a new glass from who appeared to be a food runner because I couldn’t find our server (I’m sure he was busy though since it was a Saturday evening). I received my new glass of wine and that one was fine. The appetizers were brought out quickly and were good. No problems there. My boyfriend and I each ordered the special that night, which was a surf and turf. I ordered the filet medium well with the lobster tail, and he ordered the filet medium rare with the crab legs. For the price you pay for that dish, you would expect that it would be done correctly. Sadly, both of our steaks were undercooked, mine was more rare to medium rare and my boyfriend’s was practically raw. I asked the server if I could have mine fixed. My boyfriend just kept his. The server said yes and took the first steak. The second steak, which I believe was just the first one again, came back to me exactly the same. I then said something to a manager. She offered to have them cook me a new one. Honestly I was kind of over it at this point, but she was trying to make it right, so I said fine. The third steak came back, yet again, the exact same! I was shocked. At that point the manager took my meal off the bill, which I appreciated. I had just signed up for their emails, and they emailed me an offer for a free a dessert. I didn’t even want to be there anymore as I was frustrated at that point, so we left without dessert. I’ve always ordered their share plates every other time I’ve been there, except for my friend’s dinner reception for her wedding last fall. If I return, I’ll just stick to ordering their shared plates because my first experience ordering an entree was awful.
Enjoyed our food, drinks, and service. Only issue is seating.
Not COVID safe when you seat 7 couples in a very small area.
We had the chopped salad which was huge and tasty and the halibut dinner which was also a large portion and perfectly done. For two people it was more than enough food. We also had well made cocktails: Bombay Sapphire Martini up and a rum mule. we prefer to dine later when it is less crowded but sometimes specials are sold out. One of our go to places for gluten free dining.
A fun place to share plates with a friend!
Dancing Marlin was very accomodating during this time of Covid.
Unfortunately my experience was not good today. I meet a friend for lunch today as I wanted her to try the impossible burger that I really enjoyed last week. The burger was extremely salty. I was disappointed that the restaurant didn’t really do anything to really compensate in regards to our concern for the meal. I felt like they could’ve done a little something. We also didn’t get much feedback from the kitchen in regards to why the onions in the meat were extremely salty.
The food is okay but takes a long time after ordering and the service is very slow.
Waitress was very nice. Food was good and filling.
We went here for a date night and sat in the outside patio which has a nice ambiance. We got out drinks and the martini was half full, the waitress took it back to the bartender and the bartender insisted it was Poured in the right amount! They gave us half a drink. Also the halibut was overcooked, shrimp tostadas were just okay. My husband did like the
Bone marrow. Not worth the money.
I have been to Dancing Marlin many times, and enjoyed the experience. This time, our waiter was not very good and seemed like he was either pre-occupied or just not really wanting to be there.
The Halibut special could have been tasty had it been hot.
Bottom line... it was $130 I would have rather spent elsewhere.
Not likely to go back there for quite awhile.
Excellent variety of choices on the menu and all we tried were great. Gyro meatballs and brussel sprouts to die for! Cocktails excellent as well.
Always amazing food and service
The perfect date night location. When dining at a restaurant we have never been to, we like to share several small plates to try a variety of menu items. We had about five different items and each one was spectacular!! Our favorite was the Tso's Cauliflower. We have a gluten free daughter...I would say over half the menu offered gluten free options. Can't wait to go back!!
We have dined here plenty of times, but we're majorly disappointed with our most recent visit. Our service was terrible. It set the mood for the whole evening. It took 10 minutes to order drinks and they were quite small. It took another 15 minutes to get the bottle of wine we ordered. We usually love the oysters but they were mediocre at best. The garlic shrimp were great. Unfortunately, all the waiting and the subpar meal really put a damper on our favorite date night spot in the suburbs.
Food was great, but the server was so busy, we sat and waited in between ordering our next choices. Seemed like we waited a while. Never had service like that before. The hostess was doing her best to help.
Our server was very attentive and pleasant.
The food was hot and delicious. It was a nice quiet dinner. We will definitely return
This was my first time here and I felt safe outside during Covid. I liked the selection of wine and the wide range of food choices. The Mac n cheese was great and the brisket sliders were tender and flavorful. I would definitely return!
Carly was an amazing server! She went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience and we did!! Great food, great atmosphere!
Excellent food. Great meatballs and garlic shrimp.
This place is one of my favorite dining experiences.... Service is fantastic , food is out of this world and staff is amazing
This is a small plate restaurant with food that stimulates the taste buds. Smaller place. Tab about $ 45 a person.
Excellent service and prompt seating. The only thing I was disappointed in was the update to the Gnudi recipe. It was not as tasty as the previous dish which had andouille sausage and a different sauce. The new version was awful.
Everything we ordered was amazing and was brought to our table promptly. It’s hard to go wrong here... great selection for everyone.
Nice to sit outside for a wine and shared plates.
Food excellent...as per usual...service good...pricey but worth it...will keep going back...Like to see menu changed up a bit more...
Myself and my daughter both vegetarian decided to give it a try as someone recommended the general tsio cauliflower. Maybe if it wasn’t so dry we may have enjoyed it? She ordered ratatouille. It’s spices were something that would have went well with pasta but having sweet potato’s in it was way to clashing of flavors. The vegetarian tacos I thought were decent but the impossible meat was cooked to jerky texture. The last dish was the Brussel sprouts. Very bitter. I normally don’t write reviews because we usually find something to eat we enjoy anywhere even being vegetarians. We weren’t going to ask about dessert nor to go boxes but we did pack up the leftovers for our son and fiancé to try to see if it was just us and our taste buds as they have more open eating tastes. They agreed with us. I feel horrible giving such a review but I feel I must be honest on our part. I know many people love your dishes because it was packed. It just wasn’t for us
I loved the outdoor patio. It is so pretty with all of the greenery and lights hanging. The fish tacos were amazing. My husband and son both loved what they had as well. Would definitely return!
Dancing Marlin is a true dining experience you should not miss. They have interesting small plates and entrees to suit every palate - fish lovers, meat lovers, and vegetarians. The wine is excellent and the service is efficient and friendly. They observed all COVID protocols and delivered a safe and fun experience for me, my husband, and our friends.
Their outdoor patio is beautiful and the food is delicious!
