    This is a hangout for mother's with baby carriages and crying kids. They come in carrying containers of coffee from Starbucks - a quick turnoff. You can't get through the aisles because of the baby carriages. I had lunch there with a gentleman and couldn't hear what he was saying. It is a large restaurant and they should segregate the "mother/kid" group from adult patrons. Never again.

    We love the Atlantic Grill and have eaten there more than a dozen times. We no longer live on the upper eastside, but whenever we are in town, especially with friends, this is where we take them. On this occasion, we had the diver scallops, the grilled tuna (rare), and the blackened swordfish. All were well prepared and every plate was empty at the end of the meal. Portion sizes were good and in the words of one of our friends, "the diver scallops were the best I've ever had." The service was also very good. The only complaint I would have is that we had to wait for a table even with our reservation. This was the first time that this situation has happened. But the meal was worth the wait.

    We eat at AG often and the experience is usually good, but can be inconsistent. On Fri nights they are really packed with large groups, and the service gets spotty and noise level goes way up. It is not a suitable choice for a relaxing meal anymore because they need to turn over the tables quickly and there are just too many diners squeezed into the space. The bar area has expanded to accommodate extra tables too, so you walk into a crowd. It took forever to get my guest's coat and we were standing in the way because there is no extra room. I dont think I will go back on weekend evenings again for these reasons. Weekday eves and weekend brunch are more enjoyable.

    I have dined here several times and it is a reliably good place for lunch or dinner. The food is well done, if not spectacular, and the service is friendly and attentive. They do not do well, however, with special requests. For example, instead of offering an alternative sauce for a salmon that came with a lobster sauce, they presented it without any sauce; also, every item that I ordered came with a sticker on it that said "allergies to shellfish", which made it seem like an airline special meal. Although I ordered my fish "medium", it came medium rare (with parts still glistening with rawness), which is the way that my companion had ordered the dish. The early set priced dinner menu ($35) is a very good value.

    We enjoyed our first dinner at the Atlantic Grill on a recent trip to NYC so much that we went back the next night. If you love fresh fish and seafood prepared imaginatively, fine wines and excellent service, then you should really try it. I wish there was a comparable restaurant in San Francisco.

    Very few restaurants specialize in sea food and I'm glad that Atlantic Grill does. Most of the menu is standard seafood fare which is done well. It's been around a long time and it's packed every night. That tells you that they have the right formula-good food, reasonable prices for seafood and a nice place to dine. You don't seem to mind that the tables are on top of one another.

    Haven't been to Atlantic Grill in 2 years and it's just as great as my previous visits. Just wish the restaurant was a little brighter so the menu could be read more easily. Wonderful ambience and comfortable booths. The branzino was so terrific that I thought I was I was in Provence. Tables aren't one on top of the other. Couldn't have asked for better service.

    Ate lunch at a cafe table outside on a beautiful fall afternoon. We ordered two large salads - the seafood cobb looked beautiful but was bland & pretty tasteless - not sure about my friend's chopped salad with very mini crab cakes. Very pleasant & very good service, but way too bad that there wasn't much taste to the food.

    This main room is huge and therefore very noisy. On the top of it, they stuffed as many tables as they possibly could. Despite this big crowd, service was reasonably good and the food as well, albeit unimaginative. The wine list is unequal, with French wines overpriced (stick to Californian). All in all, you'd like it if you do not mind the noise and the crowd.
