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.

Kristen was our waitress, she was fantastic. Our food was excellent. The Sea Bass, Scallops, Tuna Tartare, and Clam Chowder were all among the best that I’ve had.

First off worst waiter ever. He was more interested in hanging out with the kitchen staff and eating a bowl of soup than checking up on our table. Bisque was awful and side dishes were cold. Won’t go back.

Every Saturday evening they have Lobster Thermidor This was a recommendation from the waiter and it was out of this world good. To die for would be an appropriate phrase! Everything was good. Clam chowder was a little bland if I was to be critical of anything.

Absolutely devine bread, crab cakes and halibut ceviche. The ceviche was just ok, not amazing although it was a big serving. The service was attentive and we did enjoy our meal. Was expensive for lunch, but as we were visiting Boston we indulged!

We truly had the best time at Atlantic Fish company. We enjoyed our first meal there so much we came back two days later. We loved the cold appetizer platter, the lobster feast, the pan seared seabass and of course all of the desserts. Our second experience at Atlantic Fish Co. was even better than our first thanks to our sever Tony. He was friendly, personable, made excellent suggestions and anticipated all of our needs. We only wish we were going to be in town tomorrow night so we could come back and request him as our server! This restaurant is fantastic! A must visit if you’re in Boston!

It's rare to find an American restaurant of this quality, where much thought has gone into the cooking and where even the children's menu offers alternatives to the usual variations on a shade of brown . The service here is professional and efficient and our waiter's wine pairing recommendations were spot-on.

I can always count on a great meal at Atlantic Fish. The fish is fresh and perfectly prepared. The side dished complement well. The servers are knowledgable and efficient. The place is always crowded - and a bit noisy - but not unexpected given the quality.

I have been in Atlantic fish many times for years. Recently I felt this restaurant push you to finish your appetizer, main dish and all by delivering within a very short time so can get more people.
Sorry but I will never use this restaurant again. What is the point to have a dine in the high-end restaurant if you can’t fully enjoy your time?

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Our server was great. Our food was great. And. we will definitely go again the next time we are in Boston. Manager walked by us three times and did not say hello or ask about our meal, but otherwise a great place.

Locale di fascia alta nel cuore di BackBay. Accoglienza cortese e gentile. Il tavolo che ci hanno riservato non era dei migliori come posizione (accanto uscita cucina). Atmosfera del locale molto bella, e rilassante. Cameriere gentile. Cibo buono ma non eccezionale. Prezzi ovviamente in linea col n il livello del locale (alti). In definitiva é un buon ristorante molto ben frequentato. Ma non so se ci tornerei.

Our table was a big round for 10 but we were there on a business dinner, so this wasn't the best set-up. We couldn't talk to anyone except who we were seated next to. However, the food and service were amazing!! We would definitely go back.

I go to Atlantic Fish often, it just wasn’t as good as other visits. Our lobster was tough; over cooked. Our waiter, Glenn was very good. Crab cakes were fishy. The young lady delivering our food spilled lobster water on our dining companion. Just enough to startle him, thank goodness not enough to burn.

The restaurant was excellent if a little noisy. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed the food. However, there was no toilet paper in the stall in the men's room and the wastebasket for the hand towels was overflowing in both the men's and ladies room. There is no excuse for this and it makes you about the sanitary conditions in the restaurant.

Got to be honest. When you are paying top dollar you expect more, I didn’t feel that way about Atlantic Fish. The food was good, but not fantastic. I ordered Lobster Bisque soup and it wasn’t hot, had to ask a different waiter for bread. I had a 2 lb Lobster which was great, but pricey. Gave me melted butter was was cold by the time I was eating the tail. For$180 (with tip) and no booze for 2, I expect more. I’m going to try some other places when I’m back in Boston next month.

The boiled lobster and sides were very tasty. The oysters from PEI were also delicious. The service was very good.

The cocktails, on the other hand, were extremely disappointing. The club soda was flat for one drink and another drink was way too sweet. This was our second visit this year and the cocktails were poorly executed that previous time as well.

The food and service are top notch but I would suggest others to not waste money on the cocktails and stick to wine or beer.

One of the best fish places in Boston, pretty hard to get a table at the last moment. "Fresh catch of the day" is what one should aim for!

I would recommend for the drinks and appetizer, I wasn’t to pleased with the Captains Platter. It just wasn’t what I expected and the presentation was Mediocre. Other than that the staff was AWESOME and the drinks were GREAT‼️
