Our waiter, Ray, was fantastic! I had the grapefruit martini, it was awesome!! My friend and I split the goat cheese salad and tuna tartare. Excellent portions and they were both very good. The menu was extensive and made it difficult to choose what to order! We tried the lobster bisque and clam chowder. We liked them just not the best we’ve ever had. We both liked the carrot cake too. We really appreciated being seated early as well. We both recommend Atlantic Fish!

What a great experience. Me and wife went there for our 10 year anniversary and were blown away by the service and the food! I got the 2 pound lobster and she got the Wagyu steak. Both were the best we have ever had anywhere. Little pricey (for us) but you get what you pay for and it was worth every cent. Dinner and 3 cocktails plus tip 275$ not bad at all considering the quality and service. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I mistakenly reserved a table for the wrong date. On the day my wife and I arrived at Atlantic Fish, thinking we had a reservation, they quickly resolved the error and seated us within minutes. Mind you, this was Valentine's day 2021. My wife and I have frequented Atlantic Fish numerous times since 2014. The food is delicious and top shelf. The service is always first class. The wait staff are courteous, friendly and very knowledgeable about what they offer.

My fiancé and I originally found Atlantic Fish online, and we were pretty excited to have our anniversary dinner here upon reading previous reviews. We were traveling to Boston from Western, Ma to spend a weekend away! However, to say we were greatly disappointed is just an understatement. First of all, I am not normally someone to leave negative reviews but I want future guests to be aware of our experience. So, with that said - Atlantic Fish is a profound “rip off.” They claim to be a “high end” restaurant but they are FAR FROM. They are completely and utterly over priced for the quality of food you get. If you are anyone with fine dining experience you will know exactly what I am talking about. I ordered the crab cakes and I am almost positive they were simply frozen food. My fiancé got the lobster risotto and the entire dish tasted like margarine and the lobster was fake and rubbery. Also, the presentation of the food was lazy and “thrown together” looking. The atmosphere was almost chain restaurant like - and the service was only mediocre. We ended up so sending well over what we thought the whole experience was worth and left very upset. I would never go back nor would I ever recommend this place. Save your money and go else where!

Dined out last night on what I believed would be a quiet winter evening. We sat down and were greeted by our waiter who took our cocktail order. Drinks arrived, but no water. We ordered our appetizer and main course and still no water despite two requests. Calamari was too chewy and overdone but still had good flavor. After summoning a host, we finally got water. The meals were fresh cod and were decent. Nothing exciting or disappointing about them--just average. The biggest issue was there was a group of young women (college aged) that arrived and were seated next to us. They were loud and obnoxious--constantly getting up to take pictures without masks. Singing loudly and making us and other patrons quite uncomfortable. Even more disappointing was that the bartender and one older male at the bar (who clearly was intoxicated) kept staring at them in a creepy, perverse manner. Even at one point sending them drinks and loudly posing questions to them from his seat at the bar fifteen feet away. It was disappointing to see so many staff members including what appeared to be managers turn a blind eye to the Covid protocols. For average fish that is already overpriced, I won't be returning soon. I have dined at this place for many years but it's a shell of what it used to be
