    I had read good reviews, so we were expecting a good meal with good view. The deck was closed and the food was nothing to write home about. The clam chowder was a notch above the typical landlocked rendition, but the corn fritters were both tasteless and way too greasy, and the Cobb salad was just ok in that chain-restaurant way of compensating for mediocrity with an excess of cheese and bacon bits. On the plus side, the drinks were better than average. I might stop by for a quick lunch if I was in Gloucester and the deck was open, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We arrived at 9...dining room stopped seating at 10. The only bad part was that the side bar put the stools up on the bar about fifteen feet away when they closed. There were at least ten tables in the dining room still waiting entrees. It made me feel rushed to leave. It seems like it would take only a few minutes to stack stools and should not be done until all patrons are out of the area. Otherwise, the place was great.

    We've eaten at Latitude 43 several times, and are truly pleased by the effort to keep improving. The food selections are imaginative and well executed. And the sushi bar is one of the best in the Boston area - really fresh and delicious combinations. The staff is friendly and helpful. I do not hesitate to recommend Latitude 43 for foodies, and if you've got a disparity of food preferences in your party. You will find something for every diner.

    Appalling food each for all four of us. Fried food looks like something from a frozen food package. Not a single dish was even good. Hard to understand how a group with at least four restaurants on the N. Shore cannot manage to cook even at the level of an airplane meal. There is nothing to recommend this place except the decor is nice - so have a drink but eat elsewhere.

    But the food was disappointing. Ordered scallops with asparagus. Asparagus was very, very woody and an hour later let's say I had an upset stomach, so I'm thinking something not right with the scallops. For the money I would expect more. Nice location on the water though.

    Seafood aromas greet your entry. We had a good view of the sushi "pit" and also of open kitchen. Very friendly and attentive service. Shared an amazing lobster sushi roll as appetizer – breaded and fried, with a hoisin & ginger sauce. The wine and cocktails were generously served and very good. Entrees: an overflowing basket of the best fried clams I've had in recent memory, beautifully battered, served on a bed of french fries, with a dill-speckled tartar sauce that was just right; and scallops with a truffled mushroom cream sauce, delicious, except that the accompanying asparagus and potatoes were overdone. We ended with a strawberry rhubarb dessert in a walnut crust, served with ice cream, great ending to a memorable meal. We'll be back.

    my girlfriend and I took a chance on this place after her favorite restaurant closed for reservations. we were not disappointed. the menu was small and simple yet with exquisite variety and many items featured local fare (since this is coastal New England, local fish was obviously a large contributor to the menu). we arrived a few minutes early and they still accommodated us quickly. our server was very attentive and took care of us very well. the fish fry and broiled scallops were both perfectly cooked and delicious to boot. my girlfriends mango cocktail was also made perfectly.

    We met at Latitude 43 as a group of 3 friends celebrating a birthday. Having the 11:30 Saturday reservation gave us a good selection of seating possibilities. Two members of our party preferred to dine indoors, but our booth near the window gave an excellent view of the harbor, and breezes from the open windows helped us to feel connected with the beautiful weather outdoors. The food was excellent, and our server was congenial and very helpful. The entrees were delicious, and the desserts of the best quality! An excellent experience overall!

    For over 7 years, Latitude 43 has dependably offered a menu of depth and breath with a menu that has something for everyone. A full sushi program offers selections for th re novice and veteran alike. Local seafood prepared in classic New England recipes shine alongside more unique offerings such as the park kushiaki and the corn zeppolis. Service is attentive, informative and warm. What's not to love?

    We started with oysters (from New York) on the half shell. The oysters were mediocre. The main course was excellent - seared scallops and broiled swordfish. Although the table was nice - harbor view from a window table - it was crowded in between two other tables in a very tight squeeze.

    The food was good, but not spectacular. Since the restaurant is a 20 min. drive from where I live, I wouldn't make a point of coming back. I'll try out the rest of Gloucester's restaurant offerings first. The decor is worth seeing, though. Overall, I and the rest of my party had a good meal and experience; it wasn't enough to make this a destination restaurant.

    Disappointed. Given the reviews we expected much more from the food and Service. Service was pretty bad and Food was just good but not memorable. More traditional dishes than anything new and fresh and modern. The restaurant has a lovely location right on the water but it doesn't really compensate for amateur service. Noise level a bit much to enjoy a relaxing evening and the ambiance left something to be desired. Might be a better spot for lunch. In the height of the summer, on a saturday evening the restaurant had avaiablity which is somewhat teilling.

Our waiter, John B, was knowledgeable, friendly, and polite. We were two hours early for our reservation but were seated immediately.

    There is a lot to like about Lat43. They treat their regulars very well - so of course we keep coming back. They have exceptional wait staff - John, and for a short while, Ginger. Food quality has been getting better and better. My wife reports that her fried clams and tuna tartare were excellent. I had the black bean soup with tacos and avocado which was very tasty and an exceptionally good vegetarian risotto with grapes and fennel. The addition of the grapes gave it a sweet taste and some texture. Let's not forget the ambience. How many places in Gloucester can you have Great food and be outside? This is the only one. Other places, we have tried, are seasonal and just can't compete for a foodie's attention.

    We made a reservation on Open Table for Latitude 43, and arrived 15 minutes early. We were given a beeper that was to vibrate and light up when our table was ready. The hostesses were very flat, no smiles, unwelcoming. After waiting on a bench for 55 minutes, and seeing others come in and be seated almost immediately, I went up to the hostess station and asked when our table would be ready. The hostess grabbed the beeper and looked and said they tried to reach us two times. I said it had not lit up or vibrated she insisted it must have. Remember we were sitting right in front of the hostess station. She tried to make it vibrate, no lights or vibration occurred. She said "It must be broken"no "I'm sorry" or "We can seat you now"we then left.

    Ate on deck which was great!!! Not too noisy but able to hear our fellow diners conversations. Drinks were good, service not that bad. Loved our appetizers but my husbands baked haddock had a bone -- so bad that he choked on the bone. Our waitress came over to check on us, I told her what was happening as my husband was still trying to cough up the bone -- she offered us bread to help. My husband had to use the restroom as he did not want to bother the other diners with his coughing. Eventually he returned but for obvious reasons did not want to finish his meal. Waitress said nothing more about his meal -- didn't even comp a drink or take money off the bill

    Nice view of the harbor from the patio tables shaded by an umbrella. Selection fried clams and fish and chips provided an ample lunch. Prices were moderate to high depending on the selection, but worth it for a special occasion or before a Gloucester Stage show. Nice sushi selection, if you like it.

    We had never eaten here before and was surprised to find out how good the sushi was. Not many exotic varieties, but the varieties we ordered were quite good. Interesting décor, including a large metal/blown glass octopus over the sushi bar. The attached bar was very busy and had a live band - but the building is well insulated so it was loud at all in the restaurant.

    Gerry
    Dined on 6/22/2014
    The scallops were well prepared and enjoyed. Bread was outstanding. The only real disappointment was the dessert item described on the menu as velvet cake. What appeared was a meager sized cupcake sliced in in half with whipped cream and bits of raspberries. To present this as velvet cake and charge $8.00 is an insult. If the restaurant insists in keeping this item on the menu, it should at least be honest and describe for what it actually is.To charge $8.00 is really a bit much!
