    Fiance and I came for late dinner on Friday for restaurant week. Was disappointed to find they were out of the only restaurant week item I wanted to order- the black sea bass, so I ordered off the regular menu. I enjoyed an outstanding soft shell crab with lobster bisque, and calamari, and our attentive waitress was so sweet to bring us an awesome creme brulee on her, as she knew we were celebrating some good news. Service is always the most important part of my dining experience, even over food, so I was glad to have chosen Atlantic Grill of all the many options in the neighborhood that night and we look forward to returning.

    My fiancé and I wanted to take my parents out to nice dinner, in advance of their upcoming birthdays. My parents know good food and are game to try new places so we thought Atlantic Grill would be a great spot. We had a wonderful time. Our server was great. My dad was trying sushi for the first time and she had fun with us while ordering and checked in to see what he thought when he tried it. My parents were impressed (sushi, swordfish entree, oysters, crab cake all hits) with the food and overall it was a great night.

    We enjoyed our lunch at Atlantic Grill from the first bite to the last. The cucumber yogurt soup was just right -- not too salty, the perfect amount of cucumber to give a crunch to the yogurt. The salad was beautiful and tasted great. The cold salmon was a bit on the rare side for our taste but was delicious and the deserts were indulgent and memorable.

    We were a group of four who took advantage of Atlantic Grill's Restaurant Week offer. The restaurant is large and airy, but there is plenty of room between tables. The waitstaff were friendly and professional Each of our food selections was delicious. Although filled to capacity, our food was served quickly. We will definitely return!

    I took my wife for her 68th birthday here. We had a 7:30 PM reservation and we were seating within 90 seconds after we arrived. The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. The waiter was very attentive to my empty water glass. The ambience was also first class than my wife and I could actually hear each other. Another, "gift", was not too many people their cell phones or other electronic devices.

    Having visited at The Atlantic Grill many times throughout the years, we know that they are better than the less than appealing dining experience. The platings were presented well but lacked vibrance and flavor. Really? this event is the time to shine and make believers out of us. If we were first time diners during the current Restaurant Week samplings, a return nor a recommendation would be offered. Wow, what a disappointment.

  • Small Portions
    Robert
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    Atlantic Grill one of the nicer restaurants in our neighborhood. My comments about their small portions porbably won't make a difference in their business since they are always full, and it's not meant to. My wife and I both ordered sauted soft shell crabs, a special. The 2 crabs served were embarrassingly small. The price was sharp and even with a dozen raw clams and a salad to start, the meal left us unsatisfied. From past visits to the restaurant, I've experienced small portions as well although this time it was ridiculous. They have captured a mature croud that apparently cares more about the atmosphere than the portion size. I think they get away with it based on not much competition in the area that has such a pleasant environment.

    One of the reasons I keep going back to Atlantic Grill is the delicious food and helpful waiter staff. You know you are always going to have a fine meal. They change the menu and the wait staff always has a new selection to recommend. This time it was the stone fruit cobbler (which replaced the strawberry rhubarb dessert). It was yummy and delectable. So familiar yet changing and always delicious, Atlantic Grill collaborates with her clients to keep them happy and full!

    This is the type of place which has great but not fantastic food, but is priced for the fantastic dining experience. In other words, you'll be more than satisfied with your meal coming out, particularly any of the straight fish dishes; however, your wallet will feel much lighter on the way out. Save this for a special occasion or for when your parents or boss is taking you out.

    Service was poor, food was mediocre. In terms of the service, they never brought us the basket of bread which they did for other tables, our waiter disappeared for long stretches of time, our finished plates sat for 10+ minutes and I had to ask for the check twice. As for the food, the pancakes were good but tiny, my friend's eggs were ok but the side potatoes were undercooked and hard. Overall, not the best experience.

    My wife ordered her salmon entree medium and twice it came out very rare. My pricey soft shelled crabs (2) were micro in size notwithstanding the waiter's assurance upon ordering that they were substantial in size. The mgr. that evening could have cared less. He never returned to the table to see if my wife's entree finally came out OK. This restaurant has gone downhill big time since Steve Hansen ceased his involvement in the operation. This opinion has also been confirmed by some of our friends whom like us had been frequent patrons of Atlantic Grill!

    Went here on a second date around 8:30. Great ambience and was seated right away. One of the best waiters I've ever had at a restaurant - down to earth, honest with food preferences, not too pushy to order...I got the blackened swordfish and it was delicious, perfect amount of spice as well. Stayed until close and they did not even attempt kicking us out or rushing us. Overall 10 out of 10. Fantastic dinner and great seafood.

    Service was fair. Except for the initial greeting, unless we specifically tracked down the waiter we were mostly ignored. Also, the air conditioning was not working properly, it was a hot humid day and uncomfortable sitting in the dining area. All I wanted to do was eat and run instead of enjoying the restaurant. Also, I did not appreciate paying $150 for the experience, despite that my fish dish (branzini) was excellent.

    Went with my wife on our Anniversary. The air condition was broken on a very warm and humid day. It had been broken for more than a day which we were not told until the middle of our meal. When a restaurant charges what this one does but is not considerate enough to tell their patrons when calling to confirm their reservation, it is a sad state. The food was okay. The service was less than good. We had a different server come to our table for each course of our meal. It was total confusion.

    The restaurant itself is very good. However, there is a foul sewage smell in the area in which the restaurant is located. I don't know how anyone could bring themselves to eat outdoors as the sewage smell was overbearing. We ate inside but our appetite was hampered by the smell outdoors. The food seemed good and service was great. Perhaps the local business owners can get after the city to clear up the odor.
