General Tso's Cauliflower
Crispy buttermilk dipped cauliflower bites, general tso's famous sauce. A little spicy
Greek inspired gyro meatballs, with ground lamb & beef, fresh oregano & garlic. With house made tzatziki. Opa!
Food was great. Server was fantastic. Personable and friendly while maintaining a very professional demeanor
We started with the beet salad, huli huli chicken, and gnudi. All were fantastic. Then we had the brisket and meatballs, both excellent. We finished with the shrimp and chorizo tacos and bulgogi sliders. They were both great as well. We didn't have a single clunker.
Service was outstanding and food and drinks were amazing as usually. Have never had a bad experience at Dancing Marlin! Love the changing of the menu, have tried something new each visit.
As always the Dancing Marlin does not disappoint. Danielle was great helping us decide what cocktail to have with our Fig & the Pig, Ahi Tuna, and calamari. All were delicious! Can't wait to go back.
The food and ambiance was excellent. The seafood is so fresh and tasty.
The food was excellent! Can’t wait to visit again soon and try more options!
Great food and service!
Simply delicious.... can’t wait to bring many friends and family so we can keep coming back!
Great food and great service. Sean was our waiter and he was the best. Very personable, funny and hit it out of the park with all the recommendations. The food is absolutely amazing and we just love the place. Highly recommend Dancing Marlin.
FOOD IS WAY TO HIGHLY PRICED. WILL NOT BE BACK EVER.
The servers here are all really good and can help with selections. The food options vary by season and the latest change favors meat dishes. There are still gluten free options as well as vegetarian. We like this restaurant for being able to get small plates and share when we are not really hungry.
Always great food & beverages as usual!
Food was great, as always. Can't go wrong with some General Tsao's cauliflower! Our server Carly was very kind and attentive. Great experience all around.
Very nice! Kids love the all you can eat Brunch!
The food here is very good. We could see ourselves coming back again & again to dine around the menu! We have made the mistake twice to meet friends early to grab a drink before dinner. The bar area is very small and not very accommodating for that. Overall, though, we had a great experience.
Our waitress, Danielle, seated us early and she was fantastic! Very attentive and funny. We loved the oyster happy hour last Friday night. So delicious. Great food and great service.
Food excellent ...prices a bit steep for special but still great...
Always a good experience.
Great, love Dancing Marlin
Great service, Great food!!! We’ll be back again soon.
Everything was delicious, drinks and food. Service was great and answered all questions about food items. Amazing dinner overall!
Everything was amazing....
Came for brunch and chose the all you can eat option. I enjoyed everything except I didnt care for the sausage. Will be back soon!
Always an outstanding experience at Dancing Marlin! Food was delicious and Becky at the bar was attentive and friendly. Great recommendations. Staff is always kind!
Great as always!
The food never disappoints and is always delish! The service was a little slow but they were super busy and our waitress was very accommodating.
Great food and service but gets real loud and is too small of a space for such a great restaurant. Will go back for sure tho!
Great food, oysters were on happy hour special so they were a buck. Server was awesome as well.
Great dinner. Madison best server!! Drinks are awesome!
Our server Carly was very good. We enjoyed interacting with her all night. Unfortunately that was about the only thing we enjoyed. We had been here twice before and enjoyed it, though the cost of your meal can add up quickly with the small plated and their prices. This time we were very disappointed and had a major problem. The food was not up to past standard. The spicy garlic shrimp were just ok. We had them before and they were much better. The sliders were just ok. We had the mahi mahi fish tacos. They had absolutely no taste at all. It needed something to kick it up and give it any flavor. The ahi tuna was the best thing we ordered. Very good but small for the cost ($17). Now the major problem. We ordered the Octopus and when it came out we could not even cut it let alone eat it. It was so hard I have no idea what they did with it. We showed Carly that we could not even cut through the octopus and she couldn't believe it. At least she went back to the manager and got it taken off the bill. The least they could do since we didn't eat any of it anyways. I may try it one more time because we enjoyed it the 1st 2 times but I am wary. I have a lot of other restaurants I like and would probably go to any of them before coming back. We'll see. Hmmmmm.
Great service, Great food!!! Great place for date night or any special occasasion.
The menu was so interesting and everything tasted amazing! I can’t stop telling people about it! I’m excited to come back and try the rest of the menu.
Good with kids
Great late night date with my husband. Our server was excellent and made our experience terrific!
First time there. Great food, awesome waitress. Definitely returning soon.
Great food and a fun new experience! Our server seemed annoyed with us though. Too awhile before anyone even greeted us
Service was nice but slow. Food was overpriced but delicious. Would come back here for probably just cocktails. Food is good but small portion not worth price won my opinion
The service was fine, but the food was just ok. Food got to the table fairly quickly after ordering.
Great food, great service, I am always completely satisfied with my dining experience when I dine at Dancing Marlin.
