About Atlantic Fish

Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature New England Lobster Feast ( 2 lb. Steamed lobster served with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn on the cob, and new potatoes). The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

I had heard wonderful things about Atlantic Fish, but hadn't gotten the opportunity to check it out yet since moving to Boston a year ago. Three of my friends were visiting from TN and their top priority was to check out a great seafood offering in the city. We ended up adding one more person to our reservation, going from 4-5 people- which the host staff accommodated immediately for us. Our server was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire experience. Each of our meals were amazing- we got the Salmon, Sea Bass, Scallops and Arctic Char. Not to mention, all of the portions were huge- including the salads. Even the desserts were to die for! I'll absolutely be back here, as I felt that the overall experience was 100% worth the cost.

I have visited Atlantic Fish twice in one week. The food is that great. The restaurant is always full as a result. I must say 'the steak' is also good. This is a restaurant that I will bring customers to eat because both seafood and steak works at this restaurant. I am amazed at cook's ability to execute fine cuisine on both venue. No complain on wine selection either... \nPlease keep up the good work.

Ingredients were fresh and the service was friendly. And the bread was warm and tasty but other than that it wasn't anything special. Food was okay. Good wine selection, though. It was crowded and noisy. And except for a clean table setting, it was like a regular restaurant in your town, just more expensive.

Food was absolutely fantastic - everything from the bread and butter to our main courses. Two of us had the clam chowder and lobster ravioli while my husband had the filet, which was cooked perfectly. The only thing I was disappointed in is that we were there celebrating a birthday, which was noted on the Open Table reservation but was not acknowledged by anyone at the restaurant.

Atlantic Fish needs no review because the restaurant is always full, that is the proof. The reason it is always full is because, first, located in most convenient neighborhood, just across Prudential Shopping Center. Second, it has a very convenient valet parking considering the prime location. Third, most importantly the sea food is very fresh and presented very artistically... this has to be ranked among the top seafood restaurant in the entire Boston. Fourth, price performance is by far the best and very generous quantity. The ambience is so vibrant that you feel energetic as soon as you enter the restaurant. I am going back there again with my wife this coming week! Please keep up the good work!

We were also on a time crunch with a meeting to go to and they were more than happy to help us make that meeting. Very good place for a business lunch.

Food was OK. It was a little pricey but not particularly so for Boston. There were certain service problems, not the least of which was a very rude hostess. This was not adequately resolved to my satisfaction though the issue that she refused to fix was subsequently fixed by a manager. At that point the person who was rude should've come to apologize or if the manager didn't think she could get that to happen she should've comped a round of drinks. Also there was a problem getting seated within 15 minutes of our reservation even though we came in significantly early. Other diners who walked in exactly at the same time our reservation was were seated before us. Finally we were in the middle of a conversation while eating and the waiter came over to find out how everything was. He should've at least waited until there was a break in the conversation Instead of interrupting us in the middle of a sentence. This used to be one of my very favorite fish restaurants in Boston.

Took my mom to Atlantic Fish Company for a birthday dinner and the event went very well. We were seated immediately (had a reservation for 5:45 and arrived slightly earlier, 5:30ish). The service was very professional and friendly. We received suggestions on wine and the food and both were appreciated. The food was delicious (bacon wrapped scallops, cup of clam chowder, pan seared cod, and roasted swordfish). I would recommend many times over!

Even with reservation we had to wait for almost half an hour. The service was ok, the waiter was overwhelmed with quantity of tables. The food was ok, to be honest nothing too exciting. We had the shrimp and scallop risotto and lobster roll. Risotto was very good. \nThe appetizer was horrible!!! It was crab and artichoke dip and it had a really funny smell to it. Drinks were very basic and overpriced for what they are.

Had better experiences in the past. Unfortunately nothing was hitting last night, the mussels were slimey and undercooked, the whole belly clams were not fried thoroughly and the crab encrusted cod was mediocre. Nothing to make me return ever again. My boyfriends captains seafood platter was skimpy and we were hungry when we left. Sangria and warm bread were only items we were completely happy about, for over a hundred dollar meal, was not pleased. We did not complain, just won't visit again.

We stopped in for an early quick dinner before a Bruins Game at the TD Garden. Service was outstanding - Roza, our server, could not have been more gracious. My husband's giant scallops were cooked to perfection and my seafood linguini arrabiata had just the right amount of spiciness. Delicious basket of fresh bread and a crisp bottle of Mulderbosch Rose hit the spot. We were in and out quickly and had adequate time to get over the the Garden. Thank you Roza for a wonderful experience!!

Last night, my boyfriend and I had valentine's dinner at Atlantic Fish company. We had a namazing time and could not stop talking about the incredible service we received. We have an 8:30 reservation with no issues at all. They provided us with coat check, we grabbed a drink at the bar and before we could pay our table was ready. \n\nWe opted to order a starter of oysters. There was fresh selection of 3 types on the daily raw bar menu.We ended up getting a second order, they were so fresh. F or our meals, we ordered the New England Lobster Feast for two. The waitress asked us if we wanted the lobster cracked and the meat taken out for us. Because of the small size of our table, we opted for this. Our meal included a bowl of clam chowder, mussels, corn, two potatoes and steamers. It was incredible and actually too much food for us. We took home the access lobster to make lobster mac and cheese with later. \n\nAs I mentioned, the table was a bit small. Additionally, it was oddly placed kinda near the hostess stand. Due to the high volume of people at the restaurant that night, it was a bit of a squeeze and a couple times customers had bumped into my boyfriend. Honestly, though, we hadn't much of it. But when received the check, the waitress had taken both orders of oysters off the bill due to the table. We couldn't believe it. We never would have even brought it. On our way, the manager asked if everything was ok with our meal, apologized for the table (again!) and gave me a rose for the occasion. \n\nWe could not give the restaurant a higher review. The food was awesome and the service was second to none.

My husband's fries were wonderfully crisp and served in a short brown paper bag to absorb any extra grease. His pan sauted sea scallops were large and juicy while my blackened sea scallops were considerably smaller and some were a little tough. I must highly recommend the caesar salad. Plenty of freshly shaved cheese and anchovies galore! So tasty!! Service was very good and our server was friendly.

First visit to this excellent restaurant was eye-opening and encouraging. The room is beautiful, not unlike being aboard a nicely fitted-out yacht. Tables a bit too close to each other, but not terribly cramped as can be elsewhere. A broad menu of seafood offerings, many with very interesting preparations. Evening's special was broiled lemon sole stuffed with Maine crabmeat with a beurre blanc sauce - quite elegant. Broiled scallops with sautéed spinach and corn pudding was another home run - impeccably fresh and delicious. Excellent and attentive service from Glen was an added plus. Good wine list. Lobster bisque and sea bass chowder as starters weren't up to the standards of the entrees. Parmesan French fries were outstanding. Vanilla creme brûlée was top drawer and served with fresh raspberries and blueberries. All in all, a seafood experience that we'll certainly repeat, Though a bit pricey, it was worth the expense for the combined package of decor, food, and service. Well done, Atlantic Fish!

He recommended a delicious sounding special and I was drooling just over his description of it. We ordered the bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers... SO GOOD. I then got a Caesar salad and he got New England clam chowder. They were both amazing. We each got surf and turf with filet mignon and lobster and that was to die for. I ordered my steak medium and it came a little too rare for my liking, which is the reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for food (I didn't complain because it was still delicious).

3 of us had dinner at Atlantic Fish last night, and, on the whole, our meal was very good. The best items were the lump crab cakes, the jumbo sea scallops (pan-seared, at the suggestion of our waiter), and the swordfish. We also like the unusual side of corn pudding, which was like a small souffle. The rose Provencal wine was good, and so were the desserts--creme brulee and N.Y. style cheesecake. Our waiter was helpful and cheerful, but he was often distracted by all the other tables he was serving, so we had to wait a few times to catch his attention.\nThe prices were rather high, but given the location, that was understandable (a very high rent area of Boylston St.), and the generous size of the portions made the prices not outrageous.\n\nWe will definitely go back to have some of the same dishes, especially the crab cakes and the scallops.

We have been coming to Atlantic Fish for over a decade, so know what to expect in terms of ambiance and the quality of food. The seafood is always good and the portions are large. This time our server never told us about any specials off the special printed menu sheet for the evening, so we assumed there were none. As we were finishing our meal, the server for the adjacent table started discussing specials and it sounded like they had lobster thermidor (my all time favorite dish) or something very similar! Had I known it was available, I would have ordered it, so in this instance I left the the restaurant disappointed and slightly disgusted.

This was New Year's eve early dinner and despite a large crowd of those waiting in the lobby, we were immediately shown to our table and our drink order taken. Atlantic Fish is one of the very few restaurants that garnish their caesar salads with anchovies, and we so appreciate this !

I had very high hopes for this place based on other reviews and I am never one to leave any type of negative review (as in ever). However the food was not at all what I expect for the price point. The food was cooked well but lacked any flavor at all. It was extremely disappointing especially considering we paid nearly $200 for just two people after food and drinks. Our waiter was great and the restaurant itself is nice. However the food was so disappointing that we won't be returning.

Also, there was a large 8 person round table next to us and after that party left the waiter decided to sweep the floor and noisily move all the chairs around for cleaning.

Had a great group dining experience at Atlantic Fish. Actually, it dawned on me the next day that none of the 7 people complained about anything. I guess what can go right will go right. And, everyone ordered something different - Lobster, Filet Mignon, Sea Bass, Sole, swordfish, risotto and haddock. In addition we had appetizers, chowder, salad, coffee, shared 4 desserts and killed 3 bottles of wine. So, we had enough different foods to eat and no complaints. I've eaten here many times and recommended it - 4 of the attendees had never eaten there. My oldest son, who lives out of state, was there for he first time. He was very impressed. I value his opinion on food. He's worked in the food industry all his life, including a stint as an assistant sous chef. And he's eaten in many fine restaurant in the U.S. and overseas. Bottom line, he knows food and wine. He was impressed with our sever Lenny for his knowledge and the pacing of the 3 hour meal. He said his swordfish piccata was excellent. I'll have to try it at some future visit. Obviously, besides Lenny kudos are also in order for the chef and all the staff. And no, I'm not a shill for this restaurant. This was an honest review. It's just rare that everyone in a large group would be completely satisfied.

My husband and I were visiting Boston for the weekend and wanted to find a nice place with great seafood. We found what we were looking for. It was perfect for a date night and was fairly casual. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for for a night out. The only negative to our evening here was our waiter, who barely introduced himself to us. At one point towards the end of our meal, my husband and I recalled that we never learned his name. He was not very attentive and was gone as quickly as he came, even though it was not really that busy. We were willing to overlook this until the very end of the meal when I was finishing my glass of wine. Without a word, our waiter took the carafe away, which was about 1/3 full and that I was going to finish. We weren't happy about that, considering the amount we spent on a single glass. However, everything else was great and the positives definitely outweighed the negative aspect. We would still most likely return next time we are in the area based on all the positives.

I frequently go to Atlantic Fish and previously have always had a good experience. We ordered Mussels to share and nearly 1/4 of the mussel were closed tightly, meaning the mussels were bad or they were uncooked. The serving was generous, the sauce good and the mussels were larger than I prefer. I ordered halibut and would have returned it had it not been that I was entertaining and did not want to ruin the experience for my guest. It appeared to have been under the heater for a long time and the top was crusted not with a roasted crust but a clear crust and the fish was not nearly as moist as fresh fish should be. I also ordered the spinach which was bitter and not good. Unacceptable for the price. My guest had lobster that appeared to be very good, the corn was not the best. The cocktails were very good. The hostess could not have been better, we had a table by the window as requested even though we were late...I did call to change the time an hour before my reservation.

Had made a booking and was given a cramped table not far from the door, which I said I did not want in the booking. Two couples straight after us were walk ins and were given bigger, more comfortable tables. After experiencing the waitress trying to squeeze the items onto this small table, I asked to move. The Maître D' continually argued that he has no complaints about these smaller tables and moved us as a concession. He was just short of being outride rude. Expect he wanted us to just eat and go. \nThe food was fine but this place is full of casually dressed one-course eating customers some of whom do not take their outerwear off. Although I have eaten here for a number of years, I feel those that take their time and make the meal an experience no longer fit into this enterprise.

One of my favorite seafood restaurants in Boston. Fresh seafood galore. If you're into fried clams, they delicious ones from Ipswich with an appetizer or full meal sizes. The grilled fish is also good and there's usually a special of the day. Save room for dessert - peppermint ice cream cake stands out. I'm not usually a peppermint fan but will make an exception for it. Make sure to book early. They also have valet parking as an option, although if you're lucky you can find metered parking on Boylston or Newbury.

We have dined here numerous times before. This visit was notable for two reasons. The server was great. He was attentive,professional, and aiming to give us a nice experience. It was the food that was just average. The beets in the toasted goat cheese salad were overlooked, although the goat cheese and dressing were very good. My partner and I were most disappointed in the fish. His swordfish and my crab crusted haddock were tasteless. So it was a really disappointing dining experience.

Twice now my daughter has ordered the wild salmon grilled and twice it has been good taste wise but the size of the piece has been very small for what they charge.

Went here for lunch/ brunch. Service was excellent and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu, including the raw oysters selection. \nWe ordered steamed mussels and a sampling of oysters to start. Both these were excellent, I especially liked the tomato based broth in the mussels.\nI ordered the lobster Eggs Benedict, and it was only OK. The eggs came out a little undercooked for my taste, and the overwhelming flavor of the Benedict was butter. This may be because lobster dishes run buttery anyways, but my impression is a lot of the food is like this. \nOthers in my party ordered the lobster roll, fish and chips, crab roll, crab cakes and a seafood pasta dish. These looked pretty good, but I can't speak to their taste.\nPresentation was excellent and the food did look delicious, I just wished it lived up to how it looked and the price.

For dinner, I had the mixed greed salad, with portobello, roasted red pepper pine nuts and goat cheese, topped with grilled scallops. I asked for the dressing on the side and it arrived on the side, as requested (amazing how often they get that wrong in restaurants) Hubby had the shrimp scampi, nice flavor, perfect shrimp and a little kick to the sauce, very nice. Before dinner was served, Nicholas brought us a glass of bubbly for our anniversary, very nice! \n\nThis was our first time at Atlantic Fish and we would definitely go back when we are in Boston.

The restaurant is a good but a bit over-rated. The food is wonderful but the same quality as somewhere such as legal seafood. The oysters is not as fresh as expected. The waiter forgot some orders at first but were quick to amend. Overall, good dining experience. However, what brings it a 3 star is the absolutely horrific parking condition.

We were in town from Philly. I examined OpenTable closely for a good restaurant that my husband and I could enjoy--both food quality and relaxation. Atlantic Fish provided it both. Our waiter was great as was the fresh fish selection. Not being a 'townie' I always have to have Scrod, so it's probably way too common for some. But it was prepared so well and I enjoyed every bit. My husband went for the Cioppino. He raved about that. Fresh was the operative word--perhaps fine as well. It was worth the taxi ride from our Financial District area hotel.

Atlantic Fish is located really close to the Hynes Convention Center where the Boston Marathon Exposition was happening. It's a great location for runners who don't want to walk far right after picking up Bibs. We ordered the lobster roll and a fresh catch of the day - Halibut. The Lobster roll comes with slaw inside the roll already, but the bread was highlighted instead of the lobster being the star. The meal comes with fries as one would expect a lobster roll to. The halibut came with 2 sides of your choice. We picked wild mushrooms and steamed red skinned potato. The wild mushroom ended up being the best item on the plate. We thought the hero of the lobster roll meal was not highlighted, and the halibut flavor did not pair well with the sides we choose. The service of the restaurant was great! We came in with luggages, and was immediately asked if we would like to check our bags (for free). This was really helpful in a crowded and popular restaurant!

My friends and I typically do a once a month 'men's night out' to dinner. This usually involves some form of steak place. However, we decided to venture out and go for seafood this time. This place did not disappoint. I asked for the waiter's advice between the pan seared sea bass and the shrimp and scallop risotto. The waiter suggested the sea bass. The pan seared sea bass is probably the must have item on the menu. It was served with spinach and lobster ravioli. The sea bass was prepared as a foodie would expect it to be (you know how this is, if not, then it probably wouldn't matter to you). The salmon is good as well, but not as good as the sea bass.\n\nOf note, the lobster bisque was a little 'soupy'. I wouldn't order that again if you like lobster bisque. The crab cake was very good. But not as good as DelFrisco's, per my buddies. The clam chowder was good.\n\nAs expected, the service was excellent. He was attentive, but not hovering, and knowledgeable about the menu. Great prompt service. I would definitely come back here on other occasions with my family and business as well.

I have been to Atlantic Fish several times already. The food is consistently good, way above 'average good'. The service is also professional and efficient. What always turns me off is a lack of character and ambience during dinner hours. I would expect that such restaurant, with white clothes on the tables, proper utensils, a proper wine serving etiquette, etc would want to have a little bit better dress-code requirements for dinner clientele. Nothing really extra conservative; just 'Smart-Casual' would be sufficient. It is not really proper to have upscale dinner (with the upscale prices to match) being surrounded by people wearing gym clothing, or even jogging clothing - coming straight from jogging to the restaurant.

I last went to Atlantic Fish Co. about 6 months ago and had a great experience. Sadly, this last experience was not so good. Though we had a reservation, we had to wait about 20 minutes and then got a table right at the passage between the dining room and kitchen, so the entire time 2-3 waitstaff were standing around and either flirting, talking about their last sexual escapade or discussing where they were going drinking later that night (I have nothing against sex or drinking, but you don't want your customers to have to listen to it). Our waiter seemed to have little experience--he rattled off menu items, specials, etc. without noticing that none of us could hear him over the noise. He took off after only two of us had put in a drink order assuming (I guess) that the other two didn't want a drink (and we did, we were just looking over the wine list). A couple of us asked for vegetable substitutions and he wordlessly noted it (apparently, as they turned up as requested) but didn't acknowledge the request. Very brusque without much table-side manner. Food was fine. Not a bad experience, but not a place I will be eager to get back to.

This is my second time to Atlantic Fish in three years. The freshness of their oysters cannot be overstated. Their clam chowder is also excellent. However, it was clear that the lobster in the lobster roll I ordered was not freshly shucked. It was still fine but not excellent as expected in Boston.

This is the second time I eat here in as many years. The first was an amazing experience with a delicious meal. This time, the meal fell short of the mark.\n\nAs usual, the service was outstanding. Our server was attentive, accommodating and very kind. The meal however, was not as stellar. I had the clam chowder, which I know is usually unbelievable there from what I've heard, but this time something was just off and it lacked some flavor.\n\nI then went with the Sea Bass, pan seared with the spinach and the bottom of the bowl was watery, spinach was low on flavor, as well as the Sea Bass. \n\nTo top it off, I had a Pinot Grigio which I think was actually bad and had to exchange it for something else. The server was very understanding of this and had no problem exchanging it for me. \n\nI think it was just an off night, so I still recommend the restaurant, but I will be very attentive next visit.

Overall a very good meal, good food and nice atmosphere. However, service for some reason was inconsistent, even though we had a later (1:30) weekday lunch reservation. On the one hand, our waiter was very nice and attentive in the beginning, but after the lunch crowd thinned out, there were times when we could not find him (even asking another waiter) and bread at the start and desert at the end were very slow in coming. The main course a bit slow as well. Since I noted as we left that he was waiting tables at the very front, as well ours at the far inside, maybe the restaurant was short of wait staff that day. I still gave a good tip, although reduced it (only) $1 for the slowness.

Absolutely loved this place! Its expensive, but worth it for special occasions. The service was excellent, our waiter was fun and engaging , and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. \n\nI really like the daily catch option on the menu, where you can choose any fish, how its cooked, and two sides. It was GREAT for a picky eater like me.\n\nAnother thing of note - my bf ordered a side dish of risotto, which didn't come out when the rest of the food did. We weren't bothered by this at all, but when a little time had passed and he asked our waiter if the side would be coming out, our waiter went ABOVE AND BEYOND and after he brought the side dish, he comped my bf's meal. We really didn't mind the dish being late at all (he just loves risotto), but the way the restaurant handled the non-issue was very classy and gracious. I will definitely be back here for a special occasion.

On our last day of vacation, my husband and I indulged at Atlantic Fish. He ordered the lobster and I had swordfish piccata. The meals were both delicious.

Our server was extremely attentive without being bothersome and made it a point not to rush us.

Atlantic Fish provided pleasant service with tasty menu selections. The beet salad with goat cheese was a hearty start. A member of our group asked for a modification of his salad to include gorgonzola instead of goat and the request was cheerfully granted. The sea bass was expertly done as was the lobster appetizer. The opportunity to select cooking methods (e.g. pan seared, baked, fried, etc.) is a nice accommodation to individual preferences. The grilled asparagus side was also done to perfection. However, the roasted sweet potatoes had too much brown sugar or molasses added that was not necessary and made the side 'sickening'. Sweet potatoes are sweet and need no alterations.

We went to this restaurant a few years ago and were so impressed with the service and the food on our first visit we went back a second night. On this visit we were promptly greeted by our server, however our experience went downhill from there. It was evident that our server was way over loaded and our service seemed like he only had time for quick visits. He did not spend time reviewing the menu and the possibilities for our meal. We ordered an appetizer and soup. We were planning a multi course meal and were looking forward to enjoying each course. We were served our wine and we waited and waited for the appetizer, when it finally came it was served with the soup at the same time. We requested that the appetizer be returned and be brought back after we completed our soups. Instead we were served our dinner and the server never noticed that we did not receive our appetizer. Our server never checked on our dinner to see if we needed anything or how our meal was. Our main course was very good but not excellent. When we discussed our lack of appetizer with the server when the bill was brought to the table he apologized and offered to comp a dessert which he did. This however did not make up for the lack of overall service and the general quality of our meals..\nPrior to this experience I have recommended this restaurant to anyone that I knew would be visiting Boston, however I would not ever make this recommendation again. We had reservations for this and a second night months before going, expecting the same prior experience. On our second night our expectations were greatly reduced and the lower expectations were what we saw a second night to our great disappointment. \nBottom line if you are looking for a average white tablecloth meal not expecting any more than this is what you will get. Average service, good food, noisy environment, high prices. But not the 5 star type restaurant that this was a few years ago.

I just felt this was overpriced for the food quality. The ambiance was nice, service was on point if not a little too good, but everything on my plate required salt and pepper. We started with bacon wrapped scallops and a bottle of white. For $16 you get 5 medium sized scallops, no garnish, no great presentation, just scallops and bacon ala home cook. For our entrees my fiancé got filet and scallops and I got the bay scallops with two sides. The scallops and steak were cooked to the proper temperature but everything lacked seasoning, everything. Also zero garnish or presentation. I work for a large restaurant group and our $6 plates look better than my finances $44 steak did. Overall a bit disappointed in our $175 dinner. Taste your food, parsley goes a long way.

Atlantic is a little tourist-y, but the food is pretty good and there is something for everyone (if you like fish). We shared the calamari and crab dip apps and the three of us each had a different main: sea bass, halibut. etc. Everything was delicious. Drinks were nice, server was good. Not a cheap place but exactly what I would expect given the location and type of food.

This lunch was amazing from the menu to the presentation (all at the perfect temperature) and serving sizes (generous). My cup of Sea Bass Chowder was a BIG cup. I never expected that but I finished it all. The Beet Salad was excellent. The Crab Cake (all crab) excellent and the Brussels Sprouts charred and perfect. I cannot say enough. It was my last meal in Boston, but next time it will be the first. PHT

One of the most consistent local seafood stops in the Back Bay for years \nQuite extensive menu and very strong servers make it easy to dine here. \nSense of busy-ness always present but there is a personal nature in many parts of the \nrestaurant . Restrooms (downstairs) are nicely attired and easy. Open kitchen in rear \nis a little 'passe' but the bar scene is comfortable and good for quick stop.

Normally a restaurant like this deserves at least 4 stars, but I am comparing a $$$ to $$$ restaurant. If this restaurant was cheaper sure, I would rate it 4 stars. First make sure if you want to get a table here, book a table ahead of time. I would say at least 2-3 days ahead for a prime time spot. They do give you a call to confirm the day before. \nI came here with a reservation for 5 at 845 on a Saturday night. We came in exactly on time, we were seated within minutes. The restaurant is PACKED at this hour and there is no waiting area, basically you and your group are standing over other patrons eating at their table towards the front of the restaurant. \nClam chowder was not award winning, it tasted watered down and lacking in creaminess. The seabass chowder was fine. Lots of potatoes but also lots of fish chunks. Not really good bite sized pieces, more broken up, overly cooked fish. We also ordered lobster, and a few not so memorable dishes. I know we ordered enough for 5 but cant tell you what we ordered. I was here 4 days ago. \nService was a bit slow, but I guess for a busy Saturday night its expected. I would definitely not come back and not really recommend this spot to others. Find another less popular place and enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere.

After that, he avoided COMPLETE eye contact from me.. super rude. We dined for almost 2 hrs just for lunch- took them 20 min to take away our plates, 10 min for him to offer dessert, 10 min to ask for our check, & another 10 min to bring it back. The last straw was he didn't even ask if we wanted our change, he just expect that we'll give him 30% tip for terrible service?!

The food was stellar, I had the San Francisco Cioppino and it was one of the best value dishes I have had in a long time with tons of seafood for $38. Both my husband and I thought it was done quite nicely.\n\nHowever the service was one of the worst I have had made even worse considering that this is not a fast food establishment. My main issue was with the host which seemed very arrogant and pompous. When I asked for a table and told him I had no reservations he basically scoffed at me and said I have no chance to get in for at least 2 hours\nand implied that I go elsewhere. i asked him to put me on the wait list anyways. I got in after about an hour. And after I checked in I could tell that he was talking about me with his co workers and my spider senses tells me it could have been racist, in any case he was horrible and I can't believe he is the first point of contact for customers. I'm sure I'm not the only one that left with a bad experience with him.

One of the great restaurants of Boston, the Atlantic Fish is a must. Arriving a little early for our reservation (the place was absolutely packed) we had a couple of beers (which we later found the Fish threw in for free!), and had a great table for two next to the window. To start we had Clam Chowder, renowned to be the best in Boston to which I can attest. Next, I had Salmon and my partner Swordfish - both superb. I was tempted by the Lobster Special but sounded way too much..Half a bottle of merlot accompanied us on our journey. Our waiter was attentive without being overly intrusive - the perfect mix; he even recommended places to visit during our stay.

We visited Atlantic Fish for the first time in about a year and were disappointed with the changes. My meal (clam chowder to start then crab cakes) was very over seasoned such that I couldn't tell what I was eating except a highly spiced soup and set of patties. My friends also felt that their meals were adequate but not near the quality that we received in years past. Additionally, the desserts were quite disappointing. The peppermint ice cream pie is about half the size it used to be for the same price. We also tried the red velvet cake, which was one of the worst red velvet cakes we had tasted. Overall while the service and atmosphere was pleasant, the food was disappointing compared to our previous experiences at Atlantic Fish. Sadly it's no longer worth the price compared to Legal.

I have been dining at Atlantic Fish for many years. This time I was surprised by the prices. Have they been increased? Much higher than I remember and as such, I don't think it was good value. The tuna tartare was disappointing. So little tuna and too much avocado.

We had a business meal for 2 and were advised to go here. The place was crowded and nowhere to sit at the bar before our table was ready, not relaxing after a day of work. The portion size of the appetizer was ridiculous, not even as a main course I could eat all this...it does not feel good the see a nearly full plate go because you know the main course still has to come. The main course, lobster feast was nice but not mindblowing. After all just a main course would have been more than enough, price-value was ok not more than that.

Been to AF many times and always very pleased with service, food and attention to detail. Last time was meh. Most recent experience will be the last. Requested a specific table weeks in advance for our special event. We arrived a few minutes early only to see our table being given away! The manager said there was nothing he could do. Not much of a manager! So then we are seated in the most high traffic spot where one of our party was bumped into repeatedly by staff and patrons. To add insult to injury one of our party had a truly sub standard piece of fish! Waiter was great and did what he could but all in all a big disappointment.

We had two orders of the risotto with shrimp and scallops and they were overdone. The sea bass was tasty. The lobster roll though generous in portion, was almost tasteless.

I had wanted to dine at Atlantic for many years, but it's not easy for us to get into Boston. We arrived a bit early and were seated promptly. It was a warm night and we sat outdoors. I ordered swordfish picatta, and my husband ordered fish and chips. My husband was very happy with his meal and really liked the battered fish. I was slightly disappointed with my swordfish, as I had asked for it 'just barely done.' It was a very thin piece of swordfish, and it was cooked more than I like. Also, most of the sauce was on the accompanying rice, so I asked for more.

Two of our party had the lemon sole and they thought it barely okay . . . would not recommend the lemon sole as there are many more wonderful entrees on the menu.

Made an OT reservation for four more than a month in advance -- noting our 25th Anniversary celebration. Upon check-in, requested a seat outside and were told that there was an hour+ waiting list? When we took the inside table, we were promptly led to a seat just outside the busy bus station and kitchen. We proceeded to dine on oysters, bacon-wrapped scallops, stringy tuna tartar and sub-par chowder, followed by the 'lobster feast' with the sandiest clams ever and a Captain's Platter worthy of Joe's Crab Shack. After the hands-on, bibbed meal, we were offered dessert menus even before the wet towels, which we had to request. Not once in the two hours was the celebration acknowledged nor celebratory mood noted -- despite the waitperson witnessing my son's anniversary toast. Marginal food, lousy service on a long-time reservation, and a night that will be long remembered for the poor taste left by Atlantic Fish.

Very good with outstanding red & gold Beets. For my main, I had the 'Crab crusted Haddock' Not really crusted, more like 'encased' with crab meat. Really great meal.

Atlantic Fish Company partnered up with Prudential Mall to offer 4-hour parking validation for $14. According to our server, it's crazily busy everyday. I was grateful to have made a reservation online ahead of time to avoid the 30-45 min wait. This restaurant reminded me of Legal Seafood & The Oceanaire. For drinks, we got Left Hand Milk Stout & Arnold Palmer's. We felt the Arnold Palmer, which consisted of iced tea and lemonade, was unsweetened & very sour. The bread basket consisted of cranberry, raisin, and nut bread & a barely sliced white boule bread & was served with freshly whipped butter. It's interesting that they serve drinks and dishes on wooden, multi-deck carts but it's probably due to efficiency. For entrees, my dad ordered the Classic Caesar Salad, which consisted of fresh romaine lettuce, parmesan, and croutons, tossed in their homemade Caesar dressing. He liked how his salad wasn't drenched in salad dressing. My mom and brother ordered the Local Jonah Crab Cakes with different sides. They liked how the crab cakes were flavorful & didn't have much filler. My mom's crab cakes came with corn pudding & coleslaw. She liked how the corn pudding was light - less starchy than most places. My brother's crab cakes came with corn pudding and roasted sweet potato. The roasted sweet potato coins were heavily glazed in cinnamon maple syrup & reminded him of Thanksgiving yams. He felt that the roasted sweet potato was too sweet to be enjoyable. The Lobster Ravioli consisted of 7-8 oval-shaped lobster filled ravioli, topped with fresh lobster, shiitake mushrooms, & alfalfa sprouts, in basil cream sauce. They were one of the kind delicious. We felt like each entree was just the right portion. For dessert, we ordered their signature dessert 'Peppermint Ice Cream Pie', which consisted of a chocolate Oreo cookie crust, filled with pink peppermint ice cream, & coated with a layer of milk chocolate ganache. I felt like I was eating a large York peppermint patty.

I picked this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. If you think $255 for a party of 5 isn't too bad, then this is the place for you.\n\nWe waited about 20 minutes past our reservation time on a very busy Boston night.\n\nOur hostess was pleasant and showed us to a decent table towards the back of the restaurant. It's a big place.\n\nOur waitress was also pleasant, but not overly friendly, very matter of fact, as if we had been there before. Had she asked, we would have said no. If there were specials, we didn't hear about them. \n\nShe never offered us the option for a bottle of wine.\n\n2 of our party members ordered wine at $11 per 6 ounce (their cheapest offering.) Upon getting the wine, we looked around and saw nearly everyone else had a bottle. It probably would have been cheaper.\n\nI had 2 Stella Artois at $6.50 each. My son had a Harboon IPA for $6.50. Not bad for beer in Boston. \n\nLobster Bisque was excellent, as was the Cup of Clam Chowder.\n\n2 of us had Classic Caesar Salads at $11 each---which were delicious.\n\nFor my entree, I had grilled Salmon (as did my daughter) which was very good. Let's give it a 9 out of 10 stars. \n\nMy son had Sea Bass, which was billed as Chilean Sea Bass. It was a bit on the slimy side---good, but not excellent. I tasted it and gave it an 8 out of 10. \n\nMy wife had Shrimp Scampi for $25 which sea really enjoyed.\n\nOur fifth traveling member had Swordfish, which she enjoyed. \n\nWe ended our night by visiting the downstairs restrooms, which were very clean and well maintained. \n\nAll in all, a very nice place, but for the $52.50 in billed wine and beer charges, we won't be going back.

Based on reviews from tripadvisor we decided to eat there on Saturday night 9-12. Make a reservation or you'll wait an hour or more for an outside table. We had a table inside but the hostess was kind enough to mention that they had a 'no show' for a reservation outside- we jumped on it! The server was outstanding...not pushy and let us take our time deciding on wine selections as well as main courses. I had the swordfish with capers and asparagus and my friend had the shrimp and scallop risotto. Both were delicious!!! Would order both again. The only thing we didn't like....which is no fault of the restaurant's is that if you choose to eat outside...the street (car) noise can be rather loud and annoying. Loud radios, screeching tires, and revving motorcycles often were way to loud ...enough so that we had to discontinue our conversation until they passed. This however would not keep us from going again. The restaurant is on the Back Bay Area and after dinner it was a beautiful walk back to the hotel. The homes and architecture are amazing!

My husband and I have enjoyed very good service and great food in the past. On Saturday night after a show we tried getting dinner at 10:30 and had a negative experience. Inattentive waiter, long wait for food, overcooked and chewy fish was sent back. No apologies. Replacement meal had no seasoning--while original was seasoned--and vegetables in replacement were half of what was in original meal. When we mentioned issue to manager at end of night, he did not respond--basically shrugged shoulders. I know it was late, but they accept reservations at that hour and are open to midnight so we should get the same food and service as earlier customers. We pay the same price. A shame since we have recommended this restaurant before in part because of great food and extremely friendly and attentive service.

No problem substituting sauteed veggies for the corn and potatoes that normally come with the lobster. My brother's wife had the lobster chopped salad and it was beautiful and came with half a steamed lobster. My brother had the fried seafood platter and loved it.

Beware though, we had a reservation and when I got there I asked to sit in the patio area and was told it was a 1.5 hour wait even with a reservation. The service is great though and so is the food, but it is definitely pricey. The main dishes are quite large, but the appetizers were not so much. We got the crab cakes thinking there would at least be 2...it was just one lone crab cake for $17 (though it was a great crab cake). I would recommend this spot for a special occasion.

We visited Atlantic Fish while on our honeymoon (on the recommendation of a friend) - and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing. Our server was friendly and efficient. And we mentioned it was our honeymoon and the restaurant gave us a little free dessert, which was totally unexpected. We will definitely be back again.

Food was great! Ordered the lobster ravioli which was amazing. Calamari app was ok, It was kind of missing that crunch that I like. My wife had the fra diavlo lobster and she enjoyed with exception of to many tomatoes. Drinks were strong just the way I like them. Parking was a pain in the butt ,wish they had valet parking.

We had a wonderful evening at Atlantic Fish. I asked for Swordfish Piccata without the flour and it was excellent. I had to insist on it being served medium rare, because they wanted to cook it totally through in case of problems. However, they acquiesced and it was wonderful. Apparently, swordfish can have problems while tuna can be served charred rare. Who knew? The tuna was also great. As were the warm crusty rolls!

I had the best tasting swordfish I've ever had! I don't eat much seafood, but this was cooked perfectly! Drinks were great and the atmosphere was lively, fun, yet still personal for a good date night.

Our first time in Boston started with this spectacular restaurant for an early dinner. The food was simply amazing. White tablecloth service with a more casual vibe. Our waiter, Jay, was probably the best we have ever had. He was engaging, attentive, and knowledgable. Great value. We'll be back in the future for sure.

Let me start by saying the food was absolutely great. And the recommendations were on point. And if I didn't see my server serve anyone else, I would have given a higher rating there. So let me explain the reason it was not higher. \n\nThere was an out of town couple sitting about 2 feet next to me, who except for maybe the wine, spent probably about the same amount (if not less) than I did per person. Yet when they received the check, they had received free sorbet and was showered with positive attention. I heard something along the lines of asking them to provide a great recommendation about the restaurant and tell their friends. \n\nI get it. Restaurants like these that have a lot of competition and want great reviews from out of towners, since that is a big part of the business. But to do that right in front of me was a bit rude when I can hear it all, see it all. I ordered a drink, an appetizer, an entree, and then a 2nd appetizer (because I stated I could only fit in a 2nd appetizer or dessert). When I said I was choosing the 2nd appetizer because I didn't have room for dessert, the response was asking if I want to order dessert to go. It would have been thoughtful if the server could have offered me free sorbet too, since it seemed to be free flowing otherwise.\n\nI used to live in NY and live in SF now - 2 big foodie cities. Does my opinion not matter, my recommendations to the network of friends in both cities? How is it that that couple 'earned' free sorbet before getting their check?

Easy to see why Atlantic Fish is a Boston Classic. Attractive dining area indoors and delightful al fresco dining in good weather. Excellent menu suits all tastes, including vegan and those not into seafood (pity). Starting with delicious complimentary bread and perfectly made cocktails, we chose lobster bisque and clam stew for our first course...both were rave worthy! For our main course we both settled on the filet mignon, mine with lobster tail and his with shrimp...both done to absolute perfection. Exceptional service (our Dominican server was delightful and made our evening perfect) and prices that won't break the bank make this the spot not to miss in Boston's lovely Back Bay.

Fish entrees were uniquely prepared and delicious. However the filet mignon was HORRIBLE. Came out cold and the second piece was only half edible. Shame as it ruined the meal as we had to wait for the new piece of meat and then it was awful. Honestly it ruined what could have been and A+ rated meal

We live 2 hours from the Atlantic Fish Company and every time we go to Fenway, we stop at this restaurant because we love the food and the ambiance and the beer. This occasion was different than the one experienced in the past. The food and service were mediocre. We were very dissapointed since we look forward to going to The Atlantic Fish company every time we come out to Boston. We even told friends about it! However, we will give it another try.

We've been to Atlantic Fish several times and we're always happy. Some of the best, freshest fish in Boston with great flavor combinations. I do recommend going with one of the menu items rather than simply the fresh caught up at the top (which you can get prepared a variety of ways) just because the cooked to order can be a bit plain. This last time I had the mussels, and they were outstanding. I definitely recommend them. The sauce is a little different--white wine with tomato and capers, so it's a bit more interesting. The roasted brussels sprouts were also delicious.

As always, we had an amazing meal at Atlantic Fish. It was busy and crowded, meaning we spent a little longer there than we'd planned, but the seafood is first rate. Definitely try their mussels and the grilled calamari, and the catch of the day is always a good choice.

Maybe coming from San Francisco we expect great seafood in Boston, or we picked the wrong menu items, but the only acceptable course was our raw oysters. Clam chowder was on the same level as the dorm version at Boston College the next day; steamed clams were gritty despite concerted efforts to remove syphon and rinse; main course scallops were overcooked; wine list was exorbitantly priced, e.g. Joel Gott Sauv. Blanc $45 (>3x retail - sells for around $10 at Costco/Trader Joe's). When dinner for two costs $215, we expect more than we received.\nWe will not be returning as Boston has so many other great offerings.
