Seafood
Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature New England Lobster Feast ( 2 lb. Steamed lobster served with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn on the cob, and new potatoes). The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

Waiter, Tony, was terrific. A treat for visiting family who really enjoyed the food. The lobster risotto received a rave from my daughter-in-law.

Fish somewhere else. We are here on Sunday evening of the a President’s Day weekend and were quite disappointed. Atmosphere is nice, server was professional and friendly but the food left much to be desired

The lobster roll meat had little taste and seemed almost stale. The crab cake tasted like it was made from farm-raised Southeast Asia crab and had no real taste to it. Fried calamari was over breaded and a bit soggy from some sauce.

If this is the best seafood Boston has I’m headed to Portland Maine next time.

Atlantic Fish was a great experience. It was a beautiful restaurant and great for a date night. The service was fantastic. Only negative in my opinion was the price was a little high for what you got (compared to other seafood boils I got in Boston). Regardless I would still return and try a different menu item.

I’ve been to Atlantic Fish a handful of times and it never disappoints. Nicholas was our server and he was super attentive (but not annoyingly so), pleasant with a great sense of humor. My husband and I live our Valentine’s Day dinner. Loved that it was not a fixed menu as well!

Food, service and ambiance is exceptional! Waiter was knowledgeable, genuine and helpful. Menu is massive and covers a lot of different categories. Food was fresh, delicious, served hot and presented well. Bartenders are able to make great custom-crafted cocktails upon request. While a formal atmosphere, it is still kid-friendly with a kids menu and small activity items to keep them busy/quiet. Highly recommend this restaurant!

I've been to Atlantic Fish many many times. The staff is excellent, the food is wonderful It's just a really really nice comfortable place to have great Seafood. Casual dinner with friends, a hot date or business lunch. It can all happened here. I am local to the neighborhood and I know many of the people who work in the larger hotels. I have them send Hotel guests to Atlantic Fish the great Seafood. The last time I was there was a couple of nights ago. I met a couple who live in Albany New York and have a house on Cape Cod. Every time they go back and forth they stop in Boston to have a dinner at Atlantic Fish. You have to do it. I guarantee you'll enjoy your experience.

Loud and crowded: had to squeeze past diners at other tables just to get to the bathroom/exit. Worse by far is the boring and uninspired menu. Fried haddock, ahi tuna, $95 for a lobster dinner for two... am I reading a seafood menu from 1995?

Dinner with my daughter was enjoyable despite average service and undercooked swordfish. The lobster risotto was tasty and there was a nice selection of wine by the glass. Prices are high by reasonable for Boylston Street.

While this was not a memorable meal, I will likely return as I have had better success during past visits to Atlantic Fish.

Very nice staff but this wasn’t up to their standards. The swordfish was over cooked and a bit dry. I should of complained but felt embarrassed to do so. Shame as this is my favourite restaurant.

The food was good. The fish quality was good but overpriced. Was told the pasta with the Fra Davlo was cooked fresh and al dente but was not. Mignonette with oysters was not prepared traditionally and was really just vinegar. Oysters had ice water in them diluting the flavor...at $21 per 1/2 dozen not worth it. But again if you want to be assured of quality fish and a energetic environment this would be a good place to go.

Atlantic Fish is one our favorite restaurants. A weekend in Boston is not complete without a visit to this restaurant. This trip we had dinner with our friends, who were first timers. The service, the food, the ambiance did not disappoint. A special shout out to our waiter Jason. He was exceptionally good.
