  • Not as expected

    We were expecting a dining experience with good food and ambiance ("casual elegant", "business casual", according to OpenTable). The food was excellent; the ambiance, not so much. I would describe the ambiance and dress as just plain casual. The restaurant understandably wants to squeeze as many people in as possible, but that does not allow for any privacy or quiet for conversation. Table next to us had an unruly child which did not help, either. But the food was quite good - fresh and well prepared. Our waiter was also very attentive, although he obviously was a bit flustered by the number of tables he had to handle. Overall, expect good food, but not a lot of ambiance. More of an expensive, family seafood restaurant.

    We recently dined at Atlantic Fish Company while on business in Boston. The food: scallops and corn pudding especially were exceptional! Had a Back Bay Sangria that I would recommend. The server was well-informed and friendly; service was prompt and attentive. I would encourage everyone to eat here if in the area!

    Hi, my son and I had a great time at Atlantic Fish this past Friday. It was his birthday dinner celebration. We enter the restaurant that was packed but the hostess was very pleasant and show us our table that was waiting for us and congratulated my son on his birthday. Karina was great and made us feels comfortable during our dinner. From the clam chowder to the scallops and the lobster was delicious. At the end she came in with a piece of cake with a candle and that made the night even more special. The smile in his face was priceless. We definitely will be back when we visit again our son in Boston.

    I don't normally write reviews, in fact I generally don't care too take the time to put forth my opinions about a restaurant even if everything was excellent. The fact that I'm taking the time to post a review says this place is notable. I had the Swordfish and my dinner date had the Salmon as well as an order of the bacon wrapped scallops and it was really tasty. I would recommend this place to any seafood lover out there in a heart beat. Cant wait to come back and try the Tuna and Chilean Sea bass dish they have.

    Came here based on reviews I read online, and couldn't have been happier. Amazing service from the moment we walked in the door. Try the sesame crusted tuna, grilled calamari, fried shrimp, and the corn pudding. Surprised at the great value of what you get for what you pay for. Can't wait to return!

    I went here with a coworker / friend to quietly celebrate my 58th birthday. Carla, our waitress was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the offerings on the menu. To start, I ordered the Oysters Rockefeller paired with the Atlantic Fish martini. Very nice. For the main course I had the Surf and Turf consisting of a 10 ounce filet paired with a split lobster tail. The steak was prepared a perfect medium rare as I had requested. The lobster was delicious though a little on the small side. Sides included grilled asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Both were excellent and not overly grilled flavored or garlicky. I drank my dessert in the form of an excellent Grappa.

    Visiting Boston for a long weekend and selected Atlantic Fish for a quality seafood dinner. Our experience included great tuna tartar and lobster bisque, excellent lobster entrees, a quality wine list with plenty of reasonable options and a knowledgable, attentive server. We were seated in a booth near the back of the restuarant and we both felt that the ambiance and noise levels were excellent. I will return to Atlantic Fish on my next visit.

    Service was hit or miss and the food was merely OK. My wife had the lobster. It was flavorful and cooked properly. I had the ciopinno. The flavor was OK, but ckeary the seafood was fully cooked before being added to the broth. As a result, everything was over cooked.

Our server Kristen went above and beyond and the service was excellent. A service manager also checked on our food as well.

    Oysters were fresh, clean, well-prepared, and absolutely delicious. Tuna tartar was perfect temperature, delicately flavored, and thoughtfully prepared. Bacon-wrapped scallops were perfectly done. Plump & juicy - not over cooked at all, and bacon was of high quality. Spring rolls were light and crisp. Wine pairings were excellent - found some new favorites, courtesy of the excellent bartender. Service was quick and professional, managing to be unobtrusive and attentive. The only downside was the noise. At 8pm on a Friday night, the place was jamming and the noise level was high.

    my husband and I visited Boston for our anniversary and the only thing we had planned beside the symphony was a visit to Atlantic Fish. It was a highlight of our visit! Our amazing server recommended the special, a pan-seared halibut with a lobster risotto and cream sauce, and it was incredible. I had a seared tuna steak that was out of this world fresh as it was part of the catch-of-the-day menu. The ambience was romantic with warm mahogony paneling and copper fixtures. We sat at an intimate table-for-two looking out on the streets of Boston and were able to talk comfortably. I would recommend this for anyone wanting great seafood with wonderful company.

    I last visited in 1994 and had what I recall as one of the best seafood meals ever. It has been a long time but managed to get back there on Sunday for a family celebration with my son who has just moved to Boston. A classic recipe for disappointment; but it was just as good as I remembered, everything fresh and cooked to perfection, with attentive staff and a great atmosphere. Thanks to you all!

    Our second visit to this wonderful place amid restaurant hub of Back Bay. From the clam chowder to the Key Lime pie, everything was fresh and delicious. The shrimp and scallop risotto main dish was the best risotto I've ever had. My husband loved his crab crusted haddock as well. The corn pudding side dish is worth the trip all by itself. We received excellent menu advice and timely service. Hot dishes arrived to the table piping hot. Bar choices are sufficient with many wines offered by the glass or as half bottles. We will plan to eat at Atlantic Fish Co. anytime we visit Boston. Reservations are a must. Outdoor seating also available out front.

    My mother and I had previously eaten at the Atlantic Fish Company and were very impressed by the food. So I made a reservation for my family to return for her birthday. The food was fresh, well seasoned, and our waiter was superb! He was very attentive, personable, and courteous. I loved how he used a guessing game to trick my mom when he brought out dessert with a candle for her birthday. She was so surprised and laughed at how he was able to fool her. We really had a wonderful time and the meals were just amazing. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants quality seafood and great service. It's worth it!

    We've been to Atlantic Fish numerous times before and the food has always been consistent (the Sea Bass is to die for) but unfortunately, we can't say the same for the service. Our waiter was possibly the worst waiter in the world. We were sat by our hostess and we were acknowledge by our waiter. Great. Unfortunately, the waiter was in and out of our area, refilling waters for everyone but failed to bring our bread for another 15 minutes. There were no apologies whatsoever. He took our drink order and disappeared for a while before he would even come back to take our appetizer order and dinner order. He disappeared after that until it came time to pay. Never came to check in on our meal, never took another drink order. Are you serious?
