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.

Steamers and San Francisco Cioppino were some of the best I've ever had, really worth it. Everything is also presented beautifully and you can tell it's all fresh. Must also give the corn pudding a try, it's great!

We have been coming here for years and it never disappoints - fresh seafood that is beautifully prepared. The staff is helpful and efficient - maybe too efficient at times because the pacing of dinner feels quick. Here is a tip - do not miss the peppermint ice cream pie!

The food was very expensive, and portions were moderate-sized. Our food came out tepid at best, after waiting quite a while. The food was tasty and the fish was cooked well, but, really not worth it.

Went looking for lobster in Boston and found it! Paired with crab cakes and a good bottle of wine opened by the somalie. A great combination of good food and service. A bit noisy but I guess it’s because of so many guests even on a Thursday.

This was our third visit over three years. We had higher expectations. The service was limited, the Branzini disappointing (Bones and overcooked almost to the point of being mushy), and the Haddock with Crab? was cooked to the point of being dry. The fruit (peach) cobbler was delicious, but the Boston Cream Pie was all custard and very disappointing. All in all, it was mediocre at best and not worth the time or money.

Food was very good but service was extremely slow. Arrived for lunch at 11:30am and didn't order until noon.
"Award winning" clam chowder was good but not stellar. The potatoes were mushy (overcooked, obviously) and the clams were a bit chewy (again...). The fried oysters app was delicious as were the calamari (although could have used a few more tentacles). Crab artichoke dip was served in a bread bowl (which is not described on the menu) and we would have skipped it if we'd known.
Lunch mains were very good: fresh salmon and fresh bream were really good. As were the sides (brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes and fries).
Overall, a good lunch!

On a beautiful afternoon we reserved a 2:15 pm lunch at Atlantic Fish Co on Boylston St. We arrived earlier than expected at 1:50 pm however, the manager was happy to seat us at the perfect place on the patio as we requested within a couple of minutes. It was buzzing inside and out with people.

Our waitress was very pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable about every dish on the menu as well as the cocktails. She never rushed or pressured us.

The yummy bread basket was filled with several varieties of crusty white, nut/fruit loaf and petite blueberry muffins with a soft whipped butter.

My husbands dark and stormy was perfect as was his meal. He ordered Grilled swordfish, his choice of sides were steamed new potatoes and corn pudding. We both HIGHLY recommend you try the corn pudding as it was fabulous!

I ordered a Bloody Mary that was freshly made (not a premix) and Grilled Seafood Medley with chopped vegetables, feta cheese, avocado and toasted pepitas in a lemon thyme dressing. It was not only beautifully presented but absolutely delish. I would even order this again, and I always like to try something different at every dining establishment.

We honestly thought it was one of the best lunches, at the perfect location, with the most friendly manager and waitstaff we've experienced to date. When I stated this to the manager I think he was pleasantly surprised. It made us wonder how often do diners thank restaurant staff for good service and wonderful meals? I try to do so every time we have a nice experience and I hope others do as well.

I had a fabulous dining experience. The service, food, and ambiance was over the top. I took my teenage nephew who is a 'Gourmet' foodie for his first time. He absolutely loved the Ahi Tuna and I had the Swordfish which was delicious. The Chef was kind enough to prepare with the Pistachio Pesto on the side.

We will return again and again - I Highly recommend.

To be fair, we arrived much earlier than our reservation and the staff did cheerfully accommodate us, the overall experience was average. We sat. The waiter was very busy and we felt rushed. Here’s your (fill in the blank), I’ll be right back was the mantra for the night. Dirty plates were occasionally removed but stuff just piled up. Our bill for 2 adults and one 13 year old well behaved kid was 300 bucks. For that, I expected to feel as if it were special. The food was average for the area and the service was on par for a busy “greasy spoon”. Been in Boston for a week now. Dining out 3 meals a day. I was hoping this would be the highlight of the trip. Sadly disappointed.

We were celebrating a birthday and had a horrible meal. There was a hair in my fish. Mussels were super fishy and smelled. Our waiter was arrogant and was more concerned about watching the baseball game than waiting on our table. They did comp our entrees and we instead ordered a crab dip to share, which was excellent. Not a favorite anymore

Second time visit for lobster. The lobster was above the average but not as good as the one I had last time. The fried oyster was juicy but a little bit salty. So did the steam mussels. Crab cake really surprised me. It was the best crab cake I had.
