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.

Overpriced for the quality of food there. Very average. The fish stew I ordered was horrible. Whatever tiny pieces of seafood they put in it reminded pieces of a dry rubber. Will not recommend this restaurant To anyone looking for a good seefood.

The restaurant was closed when we arrived - just a note on the door saying unforeseen circumstances meant they would not open. A shame as we had looked forward to it and frustrating as it meant we were walking around looking for a table at peak time on a Friday night.
A simple email would have helped to inform everyone. Another couple behind us had the same experience.

Fresh fish!!! A delight with your basic fish dishes, bake, broiled, pan fried or blackened along with some creative options too. The ciopinno was excellent. Portions were substantial. Service was acceptable. Drinks and wine choices were respectable. Low noise level which counts so much these days. Will go back for sure!!!

Our last night in Boston, so we wanted something special. Had the lobster bisque, lobster risotto and fried clams. All three dishes were excellent. The lobster risotto ($40) had so much lobster in it and also a lobster tail on top, which made it a good value for the money. Would definitely eat at Atlantic Fish Co. again.

Atlantic Fish was a random choice. My friends, visiting from Ljubljana, Slovenia loved it, ate every morsel. The waitress was very nice, let us know what was local and, more importantly, independently let us know what was farm raised or wild caught. We had swordfish, fish & chips, and seafood medley. We were very happy. I was a taken aback by the Boston Cream Pie which, while excellent, seems a little fancy and being a Bostonian I felt obligated to explain to my friends that Boston Cream Pie is more homey-looking. Thanks for a lovely afternoon.

We had to wait for an outdoor table but the restaurant texted us which was convenient. The food was excellent, and the bread was so good too! The server was very sweet and happy, even though it was pretty late in the evening. Loved eating good food outdoors on a nice fall night.

For a highly rated restaurant, It was disappointing and I didn’t have the same experience. The Crab/Lobster Louie Salad was just okay. The crab wasn’t that fresh as it was a bit fishy. There were 2 SF Cioppino ordered and both of us agreed that we had better....the fish was dried and overbooked, the clams and mussels were not that fresh. But, the broth has a good flavor. My other friend’s grilled halibut was also dried. One positive is that the bread was warm and delicious. Overall, it was an okay food experience, not worth the price we paid. I will not return.

Traditional New England seafood presented appealingly. Flavor was good enough and service was adequate, but the food is only marginally better than that of seafood that is significantly less expensive. Went on a Wednesday night and it was packed and very loud. Nice ambiance and overall a good experience.

In celebrating my husbands birthday we call for reservations and we’re accomodated.
Though the restaurant was very busy we were seated promptly and the wait staff were professional and very knowledgeable regarding their menu. Offering great recommendations.
This was only the beginning, the food was prepared wonderfully, tasteful and served with outstanding side dishes.
We have eaten around the world and I can say I have never tasted a better entry than the blackened halibut!
We would highly recommend Atlantic Fish for a casual evening or a special occasion.

The appetizers were great!! fried oysters) however my friend and I were both I disappointed with our entrees, the sea base with lobster ravioli. The drinks were great, we both had dirty martinis which were fabulous especially with the crab meet in them. I dine at the Atlantic Fish Company and I always have a great time and the food is great, however unfortunately the sea bass did not impress.

The service and food were top notch. The quality and the amount of food they give you is worth what they charge. All the fish was fresh and they can prepare it many different ways and they give you a choice of 2 sides with the fish. The sides are great and full portions not liitle mini portions for sides. We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meals. Everyone was happy and full. You usually aren't full from eating at a seafood restaurant. I will be coming back when I'm in the boston area.

Food was okay, though not great. Had the coho salmon, wasn’t seasoned so had to add salt and pepper. Thought was getting just roasted sweet potatoes but the were doused with sugar and didn’t indicate that in the menu. I thought they would just be roasted potatoes. My husband had the salmon, felt the same. He added the broccoli which was uninspired, just like steamed broccoli your mom makes. The brussels sprouts were highly rated, and they were pretty good, but I feel at such an expensive place that shouldn’t be the highlight of the menu. My seafood at Saltie Girl and Post 390 were extraordinarily better so I’d recommend going there instead.

In town with family and went for dinner before catching a game at Fenway. Service (Andrew was our server) was outstanding, as professional as I have ever experienced and solid advice regarding the menu. Everything we ate was fresh and delicious; my husband said it was the best cioppino he had ever eaten. Very busy, but we were seated immediately upon arrival at our reservation time. Highly recommend!
