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.

Good food. Good menu. We were 20 minutes early for our reservation but they were able to seat is, which was good because the bar was packed! We order the lobster feast for two and split a Caesar salad. they brought the two salads I had to remind them we we're splitting one. They had already sit for us and both plates were full! Bread was excellent with salted butter. Good salad, good chowder, great lobster, clams, corn and potatoes. We opted for extra clams instead of mussels and could barely finish all the food. Nothing's cheap but all was delightful! Would recommend!

While dining this evening asked waiter to put our business receipts for 3 couples on three separate bills each indicating 2 guests. Meal was delicious until bill came and two receipts showed 2 guests and third showed 1 guest. We reexplained what we needed, manager came over and left trying to make third receipt show 2 guests. There were six of us. She could not do this, became unfriendly and ended up reringing the third couple and still couldn’t get it to read 2 guests so took a salad, not a meal salad, off the bill and it worked but now we had four receipts and fourth was salad and 1 guest ?? Which probably will not be reimbursed. The friendly atmosphere changed, she was no longer friendly and we left with stares from the staff after spending a few hundred on dinner meals, dessert, coffee and a bottle of wine. We explained what we needed up front. We always visit here when we come to Boston but think it’s time to find another favorite restaurant.

The food was A M A Z I N G!! Took my family out to dinner for my dad’s birthday and we had a nice night. It was a little crowded and a little loud but we got over it. Connor, our waiter, was so sweet. Highly recommend if you’re looking for some quality seafood and service.

We live in New Orleans and fine dine a lot and while in Boston we ate at this restaurant twice because it was that good. The fish is fresh every day and the clam chowder was fabulous. I highly recommend this place. We would definitely eat there often if we lived there.

Dinner and service was excellent. Tons of food, we had lobster feast. Had mentioned on yelp that it was our anniversary. Restaurant never acknowledged it. That and a couple of minor service lapses kept them from a 5 star.

Recommended restaurant.
Service was very good.
Prices were tourist level high.
Food was good but not special. Clam chowder was good. Lobster was lobster. Muscles were a bit over cooked and clams were “dirty and gritty” still. Poor wash job. Tons of food on the combo $92 or $96 shares lobster platter.

So for a $175 meal with drinks, not really good enough.

We had lobster ravioli and sea bass for entrees - the food quality was excellent and portions generous for the entrees. The goat cheese salad was unimpressive. Had to search for three beet slices that were sliced so thin they seemed shaved. The goat cheese was heavily breaded and greasy, as though cooked earlier and left to sit under a warmer. It was a flavorless, uninteresting salad. The warm bread basket with sea salt butter was delicious and came with beverages right away. Service was attentive. We were seated a a small table in the rear of the restaurant, and it was so overbooked my back was basically at the table behind us. They booked a few too many reservations, which turned a special celebration into dueling conversations, which was unfortunate.

The food was excellent and the seafood selection was outstanding! The timing for bringing our wine was a little late while they brought our main course before we were even done with our appetizers. Service could have been better, though our waitress was very helpful and friendly.

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. We could not have picked a better place. When we arrived, our table was ready and waiting for us. Dinner was impeccable, The Lobster Risotto was the BEST I have ever tasted. The waiter was outstanding. We would rank this up to one of the best meals we have had.

We have been several times but this time ask if they could prepare haddock baked which is not listed on menu and the wide dishes were excellent. They also accommodated my husband getting 3 oysters instead of 6 because I don’t eat them. Great waitress and food.
