We come here every year for my fiancé’s birthday. It usually wow’s us! Although we enjoyed ourselves this time, it just wasn’t the top quality that we are used to. Most likely, this is pandemic related. But it the top notch Atlantic Fish like we’re used to.

Bad experience at Atlantic Fish First they were out of the shrimp for shrimp cocktail, when our entrees were served I ordered shrimp linguini. There was a shrimp vein left on my plate which I didn’t even mention and disregarded and then a hair was found 1/4 way into my meal and was not mine. At that point I had to mention the hair and they offered another meal which I declined and they did not charge me for my meal and glass wine and a shared dessert. Many apologies but I have to say I cancelled my reservation for tonight. We visit here every time we come to Boston at least once a trip so truly love it so we’re very disappointed in our meal last night.

Reserved a table for my wife’s birthday, we got the corner booth in the rear of the restaurant. The four of us (wife, son and daughter) had a wonderful time. Or server Kate was excellent, her timing on everything was perfect! We added oysters to our meals, they were delicious! Such a great place, we were able to take our time and be together for an incredible meal.

Service was excellent as was the food. I had the San Francisco Cioppino which was the best I have ever had with a half of a whole Lobster, 6oz of fish, 4 large Scallops, 4 Large shrimp, and a ton of clams and mussels probably the first time I haven't been able to finish my dinner. My wife had the Pan-Seared Sea Bass the star of this dish was actually the Lobster Ravioli Sea Bass was cooked perfect but just Sea Bass, that Lobster Ravioli was just something special. My 6 year old had the 4oz Filet which was overcooked but still had great flavor. Would definitely return next time we are in town.

The food was amazing! We got the lobster roll with perfectly toasted brioche, fisherman’s pasta which had the perfect level of seasonings and the clam chowder which was amazing. Noise level was low and the server was so helpful and easy to get along with . 10/10 recommend.

Overall, we had a great dinner with friends. There were a couple times at which I looked for our server, but staffing is a challenge with the pandemic.

Prices are a bit steep, but the quality of the food and preparation was excellent.

I would return to eat here and recommend it for a nice evening out in the Back Bay.

Avoid the 2 person booth unless you like dining in a straight jacket, very uncomfortable, very crammed. The salmon was over cooked . The Boston cream pie was the worst we’ve ever had, hard chocolate crust , stale inside; 2 bites was all we could take. Disappointed, will not return

We had a lovely dinner last night at Atlantic Fish. It was not very crowded and diners were seated pretty far apart. We started with Wellfleet oysters that were outstanding, followed by crab cakes with asparagus and spinach sides. Karina was our server and she was friendly and very professional. The wine list is interesting and varied. We had a fabulous evening which we needed during these trying times. Thank you so much! We shall return!

Food and service outstanding, however, the noise and cost were a little too much. We couldn’t have a conversation at our table of 5 because we would have had to yell, and we were not going to do that in a restaurant. My compliments to the chef though. Every order was perfectly done!!!

Have been there several times. The pandemic has caused some issues- service was slower than usual- lots of time between being seated and interaction with servers and between courses. This was not the usual service we have seen here but I'm sure that it will get back to normal. As always, the food was delightful. Strongly recommend the Atlantic Fish mixed green salad.as a starter. and the blackened swordfish as a main course. Suggested wine pairings for the main course were perfect. We will certainly return again.

If you expect to be treated as exquisitely as you are, dine at Atlantic Fish Co!
It is my destination for scrumptious seafood and exceptional world class service.
I return often, and have made Atlantic Fish Co my annual New Year's Eve celebration!
My guest and I enjoyed the pleasure of having Morgan attend to our dining needs, intuitively.
She is a gem who is knowledgeable of your menu, markets your food, chef and staff well, and made our evening and dining experience pleasantly memorable.
Every item Morgan recommended exceeded our expectations.
I take my hat off to your chef and staff for creating and serving fine cuisine and desserts.
My guest and I left Atlantic Fish Co satiated, and thrilled to usher in 2022!!
For the best seafood and service in Boston, dine at Atlantic Fish Co.

Had a great time with my wife and 2 daughters. Tony, our server, was fantastic. Very friendly and attentive but not overly attentive. He really made the night fun. We were able enjoy each course and digest before being served the next one. The good was great. A couprl oj f us had salads and we shared bacon wrapped scallops and an octopus salad. Really good. Entrees were great. I had the pan seared sea bass and highly reccomend it. Atlantic fish is a little pricey but worth the wee experience.

Incredible food and excellent service was provided by Morgan. We were seated next to a table of two high chairs and the little ones that were practically sitting at our table. The kids were cute but we basically ate lunch with them. Tables are very tight…too tight if you want to enjoy a somewhat private meal.

Great food but no mention on website or in the restaurant that there would be no lunch menu offered on New Year’s eve. We were there at 12:30. So our lunch cost $250! It was delicious but would have been good to know when we made our reservation.
