Seafood
Atlantic Fish Company has been serving New England’s freshest catch since 1978. Located in the Back Bay, this Boston landmark is a fine-dining favorite of locals and tourists alike, serving classics like award-winning New England clam chowder and Maine lobster alongside more adventurous offerings like the signature New England Lobster Feast, a 2 lb. steamed lobster served with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn on the cob, and new potatoes. Fresh catch menus are updated daily, highlighting the hand-selected seafood options, sourced straight from the harbor every morning and prepared in-house.

The understated yet upscale interior decor is reminiscent of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. A wrought-iron enclosed outdoor patio is a favorite of diners looking to enjoy a meal al fresco.

Jay was our server and he was excellent. Looking forward to the time when all restaurants in Massachusetts are allowed to reopen. In the meantime, stay safe everyone!

It was our anniversary. We didn’t expect anything, so we were really surprised and happy when the waiter came with a “Happy Anniversary” Boston cream pie! So sweet! Food is as delicious as ever. Love the corn pudding so much!

I had a friend in town when the coronavirus shutdown was becoming very real but before we had been told not to eat out. We kept our reservations and everyone was very gracious. Food was amazing.

Atlantic Fish Co was delicious from start to finish. I would highly recommended the whole fish pan seared Branzino, brussel sprouts and roasted mushrooms,

Boston is a seafood town so I looked forward to my meal at Atlantic Fish. Most reviews were very positive and menu looked great. Ambience was attractive and service was also fine.
I ordered a cocktail and enjoyed the time before ordering.
I ordered the Atlantic mixed salad which was a half order and was impressed how large a portion was served. While it had a varied mixture of toppings it was bland in taste. I ordered the grilled cod with 2 sides. It was ok, but overcooked and again bland.
This is not an inexpensive restaurant and I was not impressed and do not recommend.

We love this restaurant. Always consistent, food is the absolute freshest. Service is impeccable and considering it is always so busy the entire restaurant is spotless!

The service was impeccable—this is an excellent restaurant to take a guest visiting Boston, a client, or a colleague.

Our favorite Boston restaurant. We don't think of going anywhere else when we come up from the cape. Food,service and atmosphere always at the top of their game. Missed the sea bass chowder on the last visit and hope to see it back (or send me the recipe). Planning a birthday celebration for my son in May.

The food was amazing, very flavorful and cooked perfectly. The value was even better. We got so much food for what seemed like a fraction of the actual price. I would highly recommend to seafood lovers, and food lovers of all kind.

We had to wait a long time for our table and when we were seated it was very small for our group. While some food was good, the presentation for some dishes was very unappetising and had no flavour. The wait staff were very pleasant but the food was poor overall

I have been dinning at Atlantic fish for 21 years. The quality of the food is always consistently good - same as service. A very friendly neighborhood restaurant.

Food was very disappointing. We ordered the chicken captain plate and it was terrible. Overdone and very limited. As frequent clients we were very disappointed

Birthday celebration that featured top notch service (by Glenn, our server) and warm, friendly “welcome” by Hannah, the hostess. My husband enjoyed the Fra Diavolo that was prepared with a generous quantity of shellfish. At Glenn’s suggestion, I had the “grilled to perfection” halibut with brussel sprouts and spaghetti squash—the best halibut I’ve ever had! Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience topped off with a gratis creme brûlée! Will surely dine here again when visiting Boston!
