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.

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.

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.

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

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!

We came for brunch the day after my son's wedding and had a wonderful meal. The menu had something for everyone. The whole branzino that one person had was perfectly done. The shrimp and grits another had was the best she ever had. Others had the lobster roll - one traditional and one hot dipped in butter - I have to say that at Atlantic Fish, I liked the hot version in butter better. I'd recommend this anytime!

Excellent food. Tried everything my wire and friend has orders. Enjoyed all of it.
Our waiter was really nice. Not overwhelming service, but everything was on time and with proper observations and reactions to our needs. Very nice gentlemen
The only one cons was unexpected waiting time for about 20-25 min pass our reservation time.

Best blackened fish I’ve had in Boston. My cocktail was incredible as well. If you’re looking for absolutely top notch food, go. You won’t be disappointed. If you’re like us (and this truly is being nit picky) we’d prefer less of a “chain feel” and a better ambiance. Nevertheless, good food is good food regardless of the setting!

We had eaten here several years ago and wanted to give it another try. Food and service was very good but major complaint about seating. if you got a booth you were ok but way too many tables stuffed into central dining space. Hardly room for waiters to carry food through on serving carts, some dishes were being handed across corner of our table so the cart wouldn't have to try and make the turn.

Great ambiance, amazing staff and service, great spot for lobster rolls and clam chowder bread bowls. Everything was convenient since we had a hotel close by and it was easy to reserve a table for 4 on a Friday night. Definitely would recommend to a friend visiting Boston and staying in that area.

We had a wonderful evening. The food lobster risotto and seafood fra diavolo were amazing. The clam chowder is the best in town. Radesh and Ginger were attentive and delightful and made the evening that much more enjoyable. I will definitely go back there again.

Our waiter was excellent--Nicholas. The bread was to die for--tasty and so soft! I had the lump crab cake with a serious amount of crab in it--one of the best I have had. We both had the sea bass which was excellent.

We were so impressed that we joined their frequent dinning program.

The manager runs a customer focused restaurant the shines on food, service and cleanliness--the three pillars of an excellent restaurant. I was at one time in the business. Mr. Battafarano works hard and it shows.

Everything was delightful. I personally think Atlantic fish has some of the best salads in town! The Caesar is tremendous. We also had the fried clams for an appetizer which were cooked in a very light better and were excellent. The service was excellent and overall it was an awesome lunch.

Our meal was absolutely excellent but the service was even better! Our server, Tony, was amazing and he took our experience to another level. He was attentive, made great suggestions and he and his manager even comped us a 2nd appetizer when we couldn't decide which on to get. They wanted us to be able to enjoy both! We will definitely go back the next time we're in Boston and request Tony's section!
