    The food was delicious, spiced perfectly. We had the arancini to start, then butternut squash ravioli and the salmon. The use of fresh herbs was abundant. I would definitely dine there again if in the area.

    We avoided the rush and reserved for 5pm on New Year's Eve. The service was very friendly and we were not rushed. There were mostly families when we arrived, but by 6:15 couples and small groups were starting to fill in the tables. The seafood entrees we selected (seared scallops and broiled salmon) were perfectly done and well presented. We both had half entrees and also ordered small Caesar salads. We both were well filled. The wine list was good with a variety of price points available in all categories. Our server was attentive, friendly and let us set the pace. All in all a pleasant way to start the evening before we went up to enjoy "New Year's Rockport Eve.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I was surprised at how highly rated this restaurant was on OpenTable! The food here is only OK. The only real reason to try this establishment is the view from the porch -- they overlook the water. The sushi is just passable, the swordfish over-done and the salads about what your own home kitchen could hastily produce. Not worth the price, unless you want to dine on the dock on a beautiful day.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The food at Latitude 43 was really great. I got the Seared Sesame Tuna which was cooked perfectly. And my date got the Shrimp Scampi which was a deliscious treat as well. So, no complaints there. Our server; however, seemed so busy that when she did check on us it seemed forced and rushed. But, hey, It was busy and the place had a lot of good energy so it didn't take too much away from the experience.

    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.
