Second time a charm!
This is my second time at Latitude 43. The first time I was not impressed, but because I LOVE Gloucester, I wanted to try it again. Glad that I did. First off, the service was so much better than last time A+ to the staff. Second, the sushi improved, very tasty. I also had a signature salad that was fresh and out of this world. Let folks know that this is a great place to eat.

Comfortable Dining/Great View
We are regulars at The Serenetee Group Restaurants. The food is always very good and Mark McDonough
has worked very hard on training the staff up to a very high level. It worked.

Good food good service
First time there. Food was very good and the service as well. If the weather was nice, it would be fun to eat out on the deck

Spectacular Dining Experience
We have been to Latitude 43 several times with special guests and the quality of service is exceptional each time. The entree selections boast unique, creative combinations, something for every palate. All the resturants related to this chain have a familiar design that makes you want to stay longer to drink it all in. The sushi bar is simplictic perfection and balances the menu perfectly.

Good food, not great value
Food here is quite good, but overpriced...$20 for fried pollock ?!?!?
Cmon folks! However, the appetizers are lovely and you can get 1/2 sized entrees. Just make sure you order correctly because they will not ask if you want the 1/2 size! Overall, it's a good place (kid friendly too) for fresh fish & sushi.

We dined at Lat 43 while vacationin
We dined at Lat 43 while vacationing in the Gloucester area. We ordered from the traditional menu. The food was outstanding. Just a brief recommendation on the service. Our waiter, Brett was rather abrupt in his presentation and seemed preoccupied. When describing the local fish of the day, we did not hear him clearly, however when he repeated it, he did so with impatience. We then saw other tables being brought bread baskets, so had to ask for ours. Overall, we would return to your restaurant based on the food quality and would hope for a different server.

Dining harborside in Glouscester!
We had Lat 43 recommended to us by a local merchant as a great place for an anniversary dinner with fresh seafood and great atmosphere. We weren't disappointed. Everything from the seating to the service was impeccable.
The food was fantastic, a real culinary treat and authentic to the region. Would recommend highly for those wanting the other end of the "local" experience than Woodmans.

Relaxing lunch on the deck
We visited Lat43 for lunch. The weather cooperated, so we sat on the deck that overlooks Gloucester harbor. Very nice! Our server Monique was terrific - friendly, efficient and with a sense of humor. The service was excellent. We ordered sushi (from the "Sushi Pit"), grilled swordfish and a fish burrito. Everything came well prepared and tasty. The food is not high-brow, but great for relaxing and enjoying with friends and a drink. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Gloucester.

Absolutely great meal in every
Absolutely great meal in every way. Our reservations were exactly as requested. Our server was gracious, helpful, professional, whimsical, perfect. Our food was delicious--served quickly to our group of 7--everything well prepared and hot. Everyone loved it! My particular favorite is the sushi roll--Nori's. And the carrot soup was fabulous. We return again and again--both for a romantic great dinner just the two of us, and with friends and business groups. Bravo!
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had friends visiting and we all enjoyed the evening together at Lat 43. Have been there before and was hoping it would be as good as it had been and it was! Although it was a busy Saturday night, we were seated pretty promptly and received excellent service. The atmosphere is lively but we didn't feel imposed upon and the food was delicious. Looking forward to the next time!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service, ambience excellent. Will definitely
Return. Great waitress , bar menu, presentation!

Wonderful Spot in Gloucester
Terrific meal - both the generous portions of the fried seafood platter and the sushi rolls. Great beer selection - waterfront views of tte working harbor. Outstanding time. Parking lot and also cheap meters on the street.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lat 43 is always a positive dining experience, especially its sushi and grilled dishes. Traditional fried seafood entrees are only so-so and ours arrived overly salted (but very hot). Delivery of entrees to table is faster than any restaurant I've been to. Service staff is prompt and attentive.

First time visitors to Lat
First time visitors to Lat 43 - we were very pleased. I chose it to celebrate M's birthday. He ordered the Asian calamari & loved it (I tasted it & liked it also), He also ordered seared tuna & liked that. I ordered SOTD, a white bean puree -- delicious & refreshing -- plus the Crisp Potato sushi roll & a salmon/avocado sushi daily special -- all were very good although the Crisp Potato sushi also had tempura asparagus that were room temperature. That's my only slight complaint (except for the close-by table with the loud & annoying little kid - blame that on the parents). ). I prefer the tempura to be at least warm if not hot. Our server was very professional, attentive but not pushy. Overall, nice find in Gloucester & we will come back.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
great outdoor seating overlooking the harbor. The Sushi Boat for $58 was just great. Good wine list, though perhaps a touch overpriced.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Check the nightly specials!
We had plain old seafood in mind when the waiter suggested the "surf and turf" special for the evening. Absolutely delicious and big enough for two. We split the entry, the César salad, but managed to select a pair of deserts to top things off. Great meal, lovely service. I'm planning to go back soon.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great outdoor dining
This was my first time at "Lat 43" and my fiancé and I loved it. It was a beautiful summer evening and we sat outside overlooking the beautiful boats in the Gloucester harbor. The food was amazing and our waitress was fun, knowledgeable, and catered to our every need. The scallops in truffle sauce was to die for! Will definitely be going back!

Great sushi and a very knowledgable staff. Sushi was very fresh and the presentation was great!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE. IT WAS NICE TO HAVE A SMALLER PORTION ON THE SCALLOP ENTREE AS AN OPTION. WE CHOOSE TO EAT INDOORS WHICH WAS LOVELY.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Seafood on the Deck
The food was delicious. And I loved the outdoor heated deck - right on the water. Just the kind of place you would hope to find in Gloucester.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
LATITUDE 43 is off the Charts!
Excellent Meal! Cannot wait to return for another unique dining experience.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Latitude 43
We discovered this place while we were in the area just walking through town, we went in and decided to try the lobster roll. To our surprise it was huge and at the same price others charge for one 1/2 the size, not that we have to get a huge meal but when you pay a ton for a tiny sandwich near the ocean its just a rip-off in my opinion. We always have great service at Lat 43 and everything we have tried there has been great, we go back every time we are in Gloucester.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and wine experience
As frequent visitors to Gloucester every two years from Texas, Latitude 43 never disappoints. From the unique seafood preparations to the great wine list, we agree that it's one of the top restaurants on the North Shore. Great ambiance but can very loud, which seems to be something nearly every dining out experience has become today.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never been out of a restaurant from a sit-down meal in just over 30 minutes! We were not, however, rushed.
Food was good as was the service.

This restaurant has a good
This restaurant has a good many components to make it a good choice for lunch or dinner. We have been several times with different people and have not been disappointed. Not into sushi but they are and I hear it is quite good.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had our 21st Anniversary diiner at latitude 43 in Gloucester. Overall it was very good. The only exception was each course came too quickly. More than once, we were not finished with the previous. Seemed rushed. Also, in our online reservation it was asked if it was a special occaision, to which I answered yes, our anniversary. No mention from the waitress of it. Why ask? Despite this we would go back. Thanks.

Overlooking the Sea
This is a great restaurant if you're up in the Gloucester area. It sits right on the water and in good weather has great outdoor space. We were there for lunch in September and it was very crowded outside but room inside. It has a wonderful pub as well. Parking can be challenging so give yourself plenty of time.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fall lunch on the water
We have been regulars at Lat43. We are happy to see some new items on the menu - this always makes a restaurant seem fresh and entices us back.The sushi at lunch was excellent and beautifully presented. Lats special feature is sitting on the deck on Gloucester Harbor on a beautiful fall day - hard to beat.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great New England fare!
My out of town guest had a wonderful lobster! This was preceded by excellent parsnip soup! We had wanted to sit outside on the spacious deck, but it was too cold. The staff nicely placed us right up to windows so it felt like we were outside with a view of all the fishing boats.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband had scallops that were excellent and I had superb lamb chops. The ambiance was very upbeat and creative. The next time we are in the area, we plan to have sushi, as the raves were all around us and the sushi bar was really cool looking! Also, loved the view of the harbor! It was past "outside dining" when we were there but in season - it would have been my choice!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
great meal after work
I am new to the area and don't know what is a good restaurant from a dive. So I heard about the outside deck at latitude and since it was a beautiful afternoon, thought I would try it. Food was fresh and came out quick. I enjoyed it completely.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are so glad to find this
We are so glad to find this spot on OpTab. We loved the outdoor seating, such a nice building inside! Menu was ideal, the classic dishes were tasty! Our server was attentive, but the kitchen took a while. Close to 45 minutes.. but it was worth the wait out in the sunshine!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining place
I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The baked haddock was delicious and the Asian style calamari was very tasty. There were some tourists sitting around us who were also enjoying the ambiance of the restaurant. Everyone loved the pumpkin cheesecake. Service was friendly and helpful to the tourists who were asking for directions to other places.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
New Fall Menu a hit
Some great additions to the menu especially for vegetarians. The Avocado salad in the sushi section is excellent. It goes well with the butternut squash ravioli which is cooked with Brussels sprouts and oyster mushrooms. The Tuna tartare and seaweed salad are both great dishes.
After a rocky summer, Lat43 has regained its footing and is back on our most favored list.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best sushi around!!!! Great ambience!!!! Love the lounge/bar!!! A favorite!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
from the moment we walked in we felt as if we were the only one there. we had reservations for 6 and were seated early(about 15 minutes). our waitress was very couteous and explained all of the specials of the day. our appetizer was the Spinach & parmesan Arancinis and it was absolutely delicious. my wife had the Butternut Raviolis. they melted in your mouth. I had the bolognese. one of the best dishes i have had. all in all, our experience was nothing short of amazing. will definitely be returning.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night at 43
I had an outstanding presentation of scallops; spouse loved her dinner as well. Great service. Everything was exceptional except for a snarky busboy, mocking my "OMG" comment. Great artwork incorporated into room design, comfortable booths....what's not to like?
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very good but...
Food very good but swordfish special skimpy.
Waitress not particularly attentive, She didn't deserve 20 % but the overall experience did.
Very expensive even with shared appetizer and dessert.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and ambience
Our first visit to latitude 43 . We had a reservation but chose to sit at the bar. Loved the room and the fireplace . Very nice menu selections as well . We had met the bartender before at mad fish grille and the service was excellent ! We also loved the food , and will visit the next time we are in the area ! We would recommend it to friends and family.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
A very enjoyable dinner
The food and service were excellent. There were several gluten-free options, and our waiter asked the chef to confirm that certain items were gluten. I highly recommend the scallops.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous place. Great food--love
Fabulous place. Great food--love the sushi. Wonderful ambiance and view. Gracious service. We return again and again with joy!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
great place to eat
This was our second time here. Both times the service was gray and the food was fresh and wonderful tasting. We will be back
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a great night! Food, Drinks, And Service were all outstanding! We
Will definitely be going back real soon! The Minglewood Tavern was great as well. Could
Have used another bar tender, but great night! Soul Rebel Project was amazing.

This is one of the best restaurants
This is one of the best restaurants for seafood and the staff are very polite and accommodating. Servers are the best.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the best meals ever
A booth by the window, great food, great service and nice ambience - a great experience. Anne had the Fennel dusted Tuba, which she said was the best dish she has ever had. On my side I took two of the vegetarian options - The Spinach and Parmesan Arancini and the Avocado salad with seaweed from the Sushi pit - a great combination. Megan was our server. She is always pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. This restaurant is well managed by someone who knows food. Nice job Matt.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dinner before Shalin Liu concert at 7pm in Rockport. Waiter John was very attentive to our need to get to Rockport on time; he even alerted us to dishes that took a bit more time to come out of the kitchen. Our party of four shared the beet salad to start and we all ordered the roast salmon, plated with chard and sweet potato. It was delicious. Lat43 is usually more lively than it was on this late Sunday afternoon, with snow expected later on. So we had no distractions for our lively table conversation.
