  • "I was pleasantly surprised by the massive menu. Anything I would have ever wanted was on this menu. The restaurant was absolutely packed. I had a 7 pm reservation. I got to the restaurant at 640 and was seated at 6:58. Right on time. The wait staff was knowledgeable and curtious. I was amazed how fast the food came out. I ordered surf and turf and my wife ordered scallops. Both meals were incredibly delicious. The crab and artichoke appitizer was incredible also. I would love to eat here again."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Our dinner was wonderful. From the service to the ambiance and, of course the food, all was top notch. You must order the lobster ravioli and crab cake appetizers, they are not to be missed."

  • "All of our entrees were delicious. Service was fantastic. Desert was outstanding."

  • "It was either Legal or Atlantic in Boston for fresh seafood so we chose AFC. Decided to splurge and start with the $19 shrimp cocktail. We were immediately disappointed in both the "jumbo" size and quantity. Basically, $5 each for large shrimp. Fresh? Yes. Tasty? Yes. Six should have been the minimum. We already had chowder at Union Oyster so we went with the Bisque and Bass Chowder. Thought the Sea Bass Chowder would be a cream base but it wasn't . Not much info from a server who was basically mailing it in. The entrees, filet/lobster and Sea Bass W/ Lobster Ravioli were excellent, although the lobster tail was on the small side. I would probably try other places before going back but definitely worth a visit."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary on July 7th and planned to spend the day in Boston doing special things. A great dining experience was a must. I did some checking beforehand and found Atlantic Fish very well rated by Zagat and the meals were moderately priced so we booked noon time reservations. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent; the wait staff was attentive; the ambience was lively yet not intrusive to conversation. We have raved about it to our friends and would definitely return."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "This is our favorite fish place in Boston. It's hard to choose between the specials and what you know you already love on the regular menu. Waitress very attentive. Scallops cooked to perfection but lobster tail a little tough. Risotto was excellent. Flourless chocolate torte (forgot name of it) was delicious without being too sweet."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Hotel suggested this place and we are so glad they did. The food was so good. Our server was amazing. Timing between our order was perfect. We didn't want to be rushed and she made sure nothing came until we were ready. I would definitely visit this place every time in Boston."

  • "My husband and I took our son (18mos) here for an early bird dinner. It was terrible weather outside which must have drawn other people in early as well. The restaurant was lively but not overcrowded. This is a fan favorite so we went in expecting great things as always. We started with apps - chowder and caesar salad. Delicious. For dinner we both got the seafood risotto. The shrimp and scallops had great flavor but the risotto was bland with zero flavor. This experience was average but it won't deter me from returning. This restaurant is one of the best in the Back Bay. It's not one to miss - great food and great atmosphere. I made reservations months in advance just to be sure that we got a table."

  • "Great food, wonderful. The waitress recommended the perfect wines to go with our dishes. Definitely a go-to place for a special occasion"

  • "It was my 3rd month anniversary with my girlfriend, so I wanted it to be romantic. We were given a table by the window and loved the ambiance of the restaurant. We were very happy with the service and the selection of wines. We ordered a grouping of seafood appetizers including shrimp cocktail, oysters and New England clam chowder. All were excellent. We then ordered blackened swordfish as an entree to share. We were both very disappointed with this as it was really lacking in taste."

    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Based on other reviews of Atlantic Fish, we decided to give it a try. Great service and ambiance, but the seafood left something to be desired; the lobster bisque and crab cake were good, as was the crab-stuffed lobster tail, but I guess we were expecting a bit more fabulous for a place that had such high praise. We also ordered the filet mignon and were more impressed by it than any other part of our meal; it was cooked to perfection, tender and quite flavorful. A little disappointed we seemed to be the only table not given a bread basket (we were starving!), but the perfectly-crafted Old Fashioned cocktail made up for it. I probably would try something else the next time to get my lobster fix, but would go back for a nice steak."

  • "We were very surprised that inland city restaurant would have such spectacular cold fish platters. The cold lobster was sweet and bursting out of the shell. The shrimp were pink, large and bursting with flavor. It is a medium size restaurant with a bar and outside patio. The ambiance is perfect with white table cloths and dark wood. Our server was great. We live in the back bay and considered going back the next day for lunch."

  • "I dined here for the 1st time while visiting Boston w/ my wife & 12 yr. old daughter. the food lived up to the reviews, as everything was delicious. What I did not expect was having such a personable, attentive, & outstanding server as we experienced w/ Karina. She truly made for an enjoyable & memorable dining experience. We will definitely dine here again on our next visit. Thanks again,"

  • "What was once nice a Resturant has become the new tourist hot spot. . We Had a reservation . Not honored. This was a Tuesday night. Finally left after one hour and thirty minutes. We had one drink, and an order of appetizers between us during that time. Could not even get bread, we were hungry. They want the tourist and the one time visitor. This could never be a multiple visit Resturant. Manager apologized and comped our app. Wow. Scratch another Resturant. Go to legal, Neptune B&G. Merrill. Lots of choices and much better."

  • "We ate outside and the food was absolutely delicious, the service was very friendly! My husband had a fried soft shell crab special, which was very good. I do not eat any seafood, and was delighted to be offered an outstanding custom order of chicken scampi linguine. Our server Bradley was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food and drinks are reasonably priced, so there you can't do anything wrong eating here!"

  • "Great food, great service. The meal starts off with fresh baked bread made in house. piping hot on the inside with a chewy centre surrounded by a hard crust. oysters were fresh and divine. the scallop and bacons were a bit small in size but came in a portion of five. had an,excellent honey dijon mustard dipping sauce. The pan,seared sea bass (catch of the day) and blackened cod in,their specialties made for excellent entrees. Will definitely go back again when I visit Boston. Not too outrageously priced but definitely not the cheapest place to it. Wide selection of fresh fish available."

  • "Seated us promptly and service was great. I ordered the blackened swordfish, which was delicious, although portion was a little smaller than expected given the prices. Still one of our favorite seafood restaurants in Boston and highly recommended."

  • "Was in Boston for a convention and wanted to have lobster before we left. Went here on the last day. Ordered the two pound lobster, it was huge! Came with corn on the cob hitch was very good and sweet, and red skin potatoes. The bread served was really exceptional. I the tray was three kinds, the best was a wheat breat that was sliced thin and was toasted. It was coated with butter. Salt, pepper, and sugar a combination I never had before. It was addictive! Would recommend this place highly!"

  • "Fifth time at Atlantic Fish in the last several years, but first time for lunch. Crab cake for my wife, fried oyster roll fro me. Spring rolls with crab and corn to start, and two sides of spinach and grilled asparagus (gotta have those green veggies!). Wine makes it an expensive lunch, but, hey, we're in Boston for the day to see "Into the Woods" just across Copley Square, so treat it like the special occasion it is. I picked Atlantic Fish because I knew the quality, it was easy to get to (walk up Boylston from the Copley stop), close to the theater, and took reservations (1:00 PM on a gorgeous summer Saturday, after all). Probably my favorite experience at this always dependable place (beats Legal Seafood handily)."

  • "My wife and I recently ate at Atlantic, and the entire experience was great. We were sat promptly at our reserved time, and the manager offered a table upgrade when he thought our spot looked cramped among the others. Food wise, everything was great, from the lobster ravioli appetizer, to our fried entrees. The only lackluster items were side items-fries etc. Great people watching as well. Highly recommend."
