Diner Reviews
  • "It was excellent, and worth the price. I would only suggest that you make a reservation in advance because the wait time for walk ins is very long."

  • "We had a spectacular meal at Atlantic Fish. We decided to try AF on the recommendation of a friend who raved about it. We were not disappointed. Our waitress Lauren was great. She was was easily able to answer our questions about the menu. We ordered based on her recommendations and were thrilled with our meal. We will definitely visit AF again the next time we are are in Boston."

  • "We chose this restaurant after reading other Open Table reviews and looking for a moderately priced outstanding seafood restaurant. We were led to Atlantic Fish. We were staying in Back Bay so the location on Boylston near Exeter was great, as was the overall experience. My wife and I shared sea bass and blackened cod and both were very good and extremely fresh. We also enjoyed a crab cake appetizer which was enough to share. Excellent bread too. Also very nice outdoor seating. The restaurant has been around for over 20 years and it's easy to see why. I definitely recommend it tourists and business travelers alike."

  • "With several visits for dinner in our experiences with Atlantic Fish, it was great to discover that lunch is also a good time to enjoy the food. The only drawback is the lack of valet service, but the food and service were the usual high standard we have come to expect at Atlantic Fish. It is rapidly becoming our favorite place to take guests for a treat."

  • "The Atlantic Fish restaurant is more than a neighborhood gem -- it is a first class experience, one of the very best in Boston. While it has been discovered, and requires reservations well ahead, Atlantic Fish delivers a very high standard of service and a reliably excellent dining experience. Note: by using their own unique cart delivery system, anxiety about safe delivery to the table is reduced markedly, and the elegance of presentation is enhanced."

  • "I went to Atlantic Fish with my mom before heading off to the airport. We had to return a rental car, and so we were in a bit of a hurry. After telling our server this she made sure we knew exactly how long it would take to prepare some of the longer dishes and tried to get the kitchen to get them through to us extra quickly. Meanwhile, everything was still delicious. A fantastic meal."

  • "We have dined at many restaurants and Atlantic Fish is definitely one of our new favourites. The food was fresh and delicious and the service was outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely be back when in Boston."

  • "Brought my boyfriend here from Toronto for his birthday celebration and it was fantastic! Ray was an excellent server and the service was nothing short of 5-star! There when we needed him, gone when we didn't. Also meet Jess, who made our experience memorable! Food is unreal, and i found it to be very reasonably priced. Would go back tomorrow if I didn't have to fly! Thanks for making it great!"

  • "I went to Atlantic fish to celebrate two fantastic years with my girlfriend. We were seated at a table in front of the restaurant with a beautiful street view. We were served a couple of cocktails promptly and ordered a beautiful appetizer (Lobster Crab Louie) that was absolutely delicious. For dinner we ordered the pan seared sea bass and the Lobster Thermidor (special on Saturdays). The waiter was kind enough to plate the sea bass onto two plates and serve the Lobster Thermidor in between us so that we could share. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic! Overall, the service, ambience, and food was absolutely spectacular! When I'm back in Boston, I will certainly be back at Atlantic Fish !!!"

  • "Our first visit to Atlantic Fish. My husband had the oysters from the raw bar and loved them. He also had lobster. Very fresh and tasty. I had the chilean sea bass. Well seasoned! My daughter had the salmon. She enjoyed it, but felt it was a little over cooked. The clam chowder was also tasty. Will return!"

  • "The food was top notch. I had the sea bass. One of the best prepared fish dishes I've had the pleasure to enjoy. The Hubs had filet and lobster. His was good, but mine was the winner. Appetizer was lobster Louie. We didn't leave a crumb. Now for the true showstopper...the peppermint ice cream pie. No matter how full you think you are, there is room for this palate cleansing and truly pleasing dessert. Kristin was our server. Best we've ever had. She was a pro at interacting with each table in a way that met their tone and energy. Fun, quick, witty & helpful. There when you needed her, not when you didn't. Gave us at least a dozen tips of other great restaurants in the area. A real gem. I'd hire her to work in my business in a heartbeat."

  • "Food was great. The restaurant was walking distance from our hotel and near great area of Newbury St. Food was better than our expectation. We ended up going to the same restaurant for lunch the next day."

  • "Great lobster and very good value. As a lunch venue perfect. Shame no outsisde table as asked for on the open table site and far too much cutlery on the table. Also did not recognise birthday. That was a shame."

  • "We have eaten here before but this time we waited at the bar until there was an outside table. I chose the cod with lobster ravioli. It was superb. My wife had the lobster salad which was also superb. The ambiance is lively but the service is friendly and professional. I will be back on my next visit"

  • "I reserved a table via Open Table and was squeezed in a corner. The table was clearly split off another and did not have enough leg room, which made me wonder what was the point in reserving a table. The food and service was very good but I noticed every so often someone walking around clearly recording a survey, I guess all restaurants do this but not as obvious as this."

  • "Exceptional waiter Ryan and excellent food and dinner experience! We made a reservation and got our table just in the expected time. Only one complaint: I would expect more kindness from the hostess."

  • "I eat here once every 2 weeks. Neither myself, nor my dining companion, finished our meals because the seafood (2 very different dishes; sea bass vs. seafood platter) was very ordinary. This is the first time it has happened, but very disappointed in Atlantic Fish."

  • "Outstanding restaurant in Back Bay area of Boston! Very busy. Probably the BEST clam chowder I've eaten. All portions of our meal were delicious. The sea bass with lobster ravioli will have me coming bac to this restaurant the next time I visit Boston. All courses were served very hot, which sort of surprised me with the open plate being rolled to the table on carts. Hadn't seen that before but they made it wor. Service from Glen was attentive with out being annoying. Highly recommend!"

  • "The waiter Jim was as good as it gets. Friendly knowledgeable and right on. appetizers were good except the clams casino came out burnt The lobster bisque and New England clam chowder were excellent. The dinners were mixed the mahi mahi was fabulous and the sides of mushrooms and corn pudding were real good. You must try. The corn pudding as it was exceptional. It is a combination of corn bread pudding and I'm not sure but just great. The problem was the lemon sole American out fairly cold and not great. The linguini with clam sauce was excellent. The steak was good except for a major section with fat in it. Over all pretty good but those few problems. The manager did buy deserts."

  • "The food was outstanding and the wait staff was great as well. The only thing is that it was a fairly hot evening and the A/C at this restaurant is terrible. Sweating during dinner was not pleasant."

  • "Went there on a Friday evening, had a 9 PM reservation, but it took them >20 minutes to seat us, and only because I complained to the hostesses (who were visibly overwhelmed...). The server was very friendly and efficient and did a great job. We shared a lobster - clam bake, it was ok, nothing special; the tuna appetizer was nice. Dessert choices were uninspired. It's a bustling, busy place, with decent food and service - noise level is real high, you might do much better for romantic dinner going to a place like McCormick and Schmick or Turner etc... but might be found with loud group."

  • "Had two lunches last week at Atl. Fish. First day everything including service was very good. Second lunch service was somewhat slow, but not to the point of being poor. Sampled many items and had no complaints, some more flavorful than others, but all good. Spring rolls appetizer were very good."
