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.

I was there with my husband for our anniversary for the first time and it was great.
The food was good, service was excellent, enjoyed my dinner. I stated it was an anniversary but did not get a complimentary cake or even cholcolate.

Great meal. We had a person in our party who was highly allergic to certain ingredients and the staff was very accommodating and made sure everyone had a great experience.

The place is neat. I looked the look but the food was middle of the road. I had the lobster roll which was nothing to write home about. Not much lobster salad. My gf had the Asian crunchy salad which had way too many onions. There were so many onion she smelled like them for hours. I had to break up with her. Thanks Atlantic Fish

The service was great—these are clearly experienced waiters. Brunch was delicious. From the blueberry muffins and mimosas to the lobster Benedict and clam chowder with freshly made chive bites we loved it.

I do not typically submit reviews, but felt I must. This was possibly one of the best dinners I have ever had in my life. The clam chowder was fantastic, and the lobster risotto was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted in my time on this earth. I will travel the 6 hours JUST to get back to this restaurant.

It was great.
I got there early and the reservation was for 4 people.
They didn’t make me wait. They allowed me to sit by myself and get a drink.
The sangria was amazing!
The food was just phenomenal. We tried the crab cake, the lobster loui and the clam chowder. It was all amazing.
I had the swordfish I asked for it to be seared with garlic.
And at the end ordered a crème brûlée with a capuchino.
It was all top notch.
Will definitely come back!!

As someone who would come here relatively often, I was honestly very disappointed today. It’s the first time I am back here since restaurants reopened and I am hoping this is a transient dip due to COVID.
Today I ordered things I have ordered in the past and that I consider some of my favorite items.
The lobster bisque was extremely salty and had 2 2cm slices of lobster. If you’ve been there before, you know that’s not their usual. The server noticed me “fishing” for the lobster and asked if it was okay. I appreciate that he brought me a little extra lobster to add in.
The creme brûlée was definitely “brûlée”.
Decorated with lots of beautiful berries to cover up the scorched bits. Unfortunately it did not hide the bitter burnt taste.

My partner and I came 15 minutes ahead of our reservation and were seated and served very promptly. The clam chowder was delicious and our crab-crusted haddock and Seafood Fra Diavolo were excellent! Atlantic Fish is a great location for couples, families, and anybody looking to treat themselves to quality seafood.

Dining at Atlantic Fish was a pleasure after all of these last few months of restrictions. The restaurant and staff clearly take social distancing and health guidelines seriously, but still manage to be warm and accommodating. For example, menus are available via QR codes on the table, but between the small print and soft lighting, my waiter noticed that I was struggling, so he brought me a paper copy of the menu, which I genuinely appreciated.
The oysters were fresh and local, I had cod, also well prepared, not rubbery or overly done, just right. The brussel sprouts with bacon were especially delicious. The wine list was long enough to provide choice without being overwhelming and offered a good range of price points and varieties.

Was concerned about social distancing as our table was close to the street end of the bar. There was a group of 4 or 5 people standing at the bar, no masks, they were close to us and they were loud and acting irresponsibly. Host and bartender were acting like they knew them well and not concerned about protocols. We actually pushed our table away from them as much as we could.
