    When visiting Boston we always try and have dinner at the Atlantic Fish Co. Our meals have always been wonderful. Fish is very fresh and nicely presented. Always willing to honor any special food requests or diet restrictions. Service is excellent. Looking forward already to next trip to Boston and dinner at the Atlantic Fish Co.

    Another pleasant visit, as far as the food and service was concerned, but slow seating with our 6pm reservation. Packed house and quite noisy. For the really important issues, excellent food and prompt service, no complaints. They have been consistently good over the 3 years I have lived in Boston. I believe their prices are quite fair too given what their competitors charge.

    Though our dinner was fantastic, we were seated 48 minutes after our reservation time on Open Table, despite arriving 15 minutes early. It was a cool evening, the doors were open and they kept trying to get us to take a table outside or at the door. Why they wouldn't just close the sliders when many people refused the 'outdoor' seating is beyond me. As usual, there is always a crowd waiting for tables, and we knew this because it is our 4th time at this restaurant, and hence why we made a reservation in the first place. Too bad they did not observe it. The seafood is among the best in Boston, but the experience was marred by the unnecessary delay. Not sure we will return.

    The Restaurant was very busy on the Friday evening we visited. The were no free tables and we had to wait 15 minutes even though we had booked a table 3 weeks prior to our visit. However, the food was very good, imaginative, and the staff were pleasant? With a bottle of wine, we felt it was quite an expensive meal, but maybe it's just a case of you have to pay for something good in Boston. We would definitely return.

    There are plenty of options for seafood in Boston. This just happens to be one of the better ones. I've been here multiple times, and the food is always good. The only downside to Atlantic Fish Co is sometimes they are too popular for their own good. It can get very crowded, and therefore the service is sometimes not excellent, but I've never had bad service either. Just... delayed good service.

    We went there for the second time in two weeks. We are from Ottawa and we were meeting a couple from Manchester, UK who we have known a long time and are very special to us. We wanted to end our visit with a special meal and we were not disappointed. The food was great, the server was a lot of fun and we had a most enjoyable evening.

    Bustling atmosphere and large but good menu. Great Lobster Ravioli and good chowder to start. The special of herb crusted halibut with shrimp mash for a main was very good. Misleading menu meant I got a plate of fried seafood. Very disappointed. Waiter was unsympathetic but eventually offered to change it to a piece of plain grilled cod (the cod was cooked beautifully to be fair). The waiter in general was brusque and patronising - evidently in a hurry to turn the table even though we had a 9pm booking. Poured two huge glasses from our nice bottle of white wine and didn't bring a wine cooler for the remainder of the bottle. Had to request one twice before it came and then saw our waiter roll his eyes as he walked away. Not impressed at all.

    We were really looking forward to dining at the Atlantic fish co after reading the reviews and checking it out on line The seat we were shown to was covered in bread crumbs ,my wife's cutlery was dirty.I ordered a bottle of water as we sat down which took at least ten minutes to arrive .My wife ordered scallops wrapped in bacon which was fine and Chilean sea bas in garlic and breadcrumbs (average).I ordered the fish cake which was bland and poorly presented.The main course was the captains platter,I have had better presented and better tasting food off a street vendor,wish I had taken a photograph.The wine I ordered finally arrived after three attempts towards the end of the meal. All together a very disappointing experience for ourselves

    We were seated immediately after we were given a choice of inside or outside, booth or table Our waiter was pleasant, very knowledgeable about the menu, and willing to follow our dining pace. She brought delicious bread right away to have with our drinks. The food was fine but the cod was not quite as special as it usually is. One person raved about the Atlantic Haddock. The sides were special.

    We were visiting from dc and wanted to have a special meal on out last night as it was my boyfriends birthday. The food was awesome and the service was great. Everyone was very friendly. The portions were much larger than expected. The only thing I would complain about was that there seemed to be a lot of oil used for cooking everything; it didn't taste bad but was all over the plate. Sole was excellent and my boyfriend enjoyed his surf and turf; said the lobster was one of the best he had. Would love to return if we visit boston again.

    The special was striped bass from Nantucket in a tomato based lobster sauce. The dish was perfect. The amount of lobster in the sauce was a surprise...it could have been a lobster dish. The fish was seasoned perfectly and lemon ricotta gnocci were superb. They had the texture of a cloud, soft and creamy. Loved the entire experience. This is a must stop when in Boston.

    I love this place, unfortunately my recent visit did not meet my expectations. My husband and I made a reservation to celebrate our 2 year anniversary; once we got there the place was packed, the maitre D was super busy but nice enough to help me find my table ( my husband was already there) . Our waiter took some time to arrive and he was always in a hurry; he didn't even go over the special ( until we asked); he never came by our table through the whole time; while I understand how busy it gets I think a place with this level should always serve the customers with high standards, this time it didn't

    I went to Atlantic Fish for the first time this weekend and my experience was nothing less than wonderful! I live 5minutes outside of Boston and cannot believe I have not been to Atlantic Fish before! For a high-end restaurant they have a very large menu making it hard for anyone not to love! I was extremely pleased with the service we received from all staff members from the moment we walked into the restaurant. My company and I were also very happy with the appetizers, drinks and entrees! I never wrote a review on a restaurant before but this one definitely deserved it!

    Dined on 9/3/2014
    Atlantic Fish was very busy and our party of 4 had to wait a short time for the table, it happens. The team style service was slow and unorganized. The biggest disappointment was the food quality. We ordered two Lemon Sole and two Halibut dinners. The Sole was mushy and cold and the Halibut was very dry and tasteless. We were very disappointed and expected better for the money. My wife did not touch her entree (the Sole) and the waiter did not even ask if everything was alright with the plate. This restaurant may be cruising on a reputation.

    Had dinner at Atlantic Fish August 31. The atmosphere at Atlantic Fish reminds me of a Morton's Steak House but for fish. They serve large quantities of lobster, oysters and all kinds of fish prepared in all ways imaginable. Carts are whizzing up and down the aisles stacked with food. The fish is fresh, well prepared and delicious. Our waiter was outstanding and we had an enjoyable evening. This is the kind of place you go with friends....loud and boisterous. I would not recommend this as a romantic or serious evening for two, as the place bustles. I'd definitely go again...Come with friends. have some fun and enjoy some well-prepared, fresh seafood!!

    The food and the ambiance were both excellent, and the service was exemplary. However, I would only go here for a special occasion because you can't get a reservation between 6 and 9 unless you plan at least a week ahead. So, if you are an early bird, or a late nighted, you can just drop in for a very nice meal (figure on $50 a head without drinks), but otherwise, the place is too popular for a spontaneous drop in. The crab cake appetizer was excellent. The breads were high quality. Had tuna steak, rare, and it was high quality cut of fish, done just right. Shrimp scampi with perfectly cooked pasta--many places miss on the pasta, this was done right. Parking is an issue, and even though they validate for a $10 discount, it's EXPENSIVE.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We are frequent visitors to Boston. Boston is of course, famous for their seafood and there are many fine restaurants, but we feel this is the best. The seafood is fresh, the menu is creative, entrees delicious and service is exceptional. The hardest thing is making a choice, but we have never been disappointed! It is located in the Back bay on Boylston and if you get a table on the sidewalk, you can watch fans streaming to Fenway. But do not bring anyone who does not like seafood- there is no steak or poultry on this menu! Bon appetit!

    The food here is absolutely the best!. The pan seared scallops are simple amazing (my favorite thing on the menu)! I highly recommend them. However, there are several items on the menu that are great. A friend dinning with us ordered the Lobster fra Diavolo with linguine. He raved about the spicy sauce and sweet lobster. Also, the staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The Atlantic Fish Co. simple can't be missed. ...Make reservations, it's really that good.

    This is a well run restaurant. We were seated right away with our reservation at a very nice table. The wait staff were really helpful in guiding us and making suggestions. My wife had the scallops that were gritty and a little off in taste -- she was not impressed. I had a lemon sole that was well prepared and very tasty. The baked potato sides were really good. We are moving to Boston so that this will become a good choice when we are eating out.
