Great ambience a little loud though. We had a wonderful dinner and our waitress Amanda was superb. We had the bacon wrapped scallops as a starter they were excellent. My husband had the fish and chips and I had the New England clam chowder and a salad.

Great time and you could see that it was a local favorite. Packed restaurant.

Took my mom here for her 89th birthday. Lobster Thermidor and strawberry margarita did not disappoint. Crabmeat encrusted haddock and lobster risotto were very good, but quite expensive. The manager had to help us with a little issue, but she was very helpful and professional. If you’re looking for top quality seafood, I’d recommend. Would definitely return. Best freshly baked bread I’ve ever had!!!

Weekend in Boston to see the Red Sox. Dining here has been on my bucket list for years. The excitement was well rewarded. The food was on top of the world incredible. The chowdah, one of the best I’ve ever had. Crab Crusted Haddock, oh! To die for! Captain’s Platter, definitely not just any deep fried seafood. The flavor, delicious. Service was fantastic. This restaurant is not just going out to dinner, it a true scrumptious dining experience. I will definitely go back the next time I’m in Boston.

The service was amazing, but the food was flavorless and the drink weren't good at all. Super overpriced. I don't get the hype. I do not recommend eating here.

We each had two very good starters—the bacon-wrapped scallops and the lump crabcake with a, fresh, original side of slaw, accompanied by a carafe of alvarinho white. Wait staff are clearly told to hurry diners so they can turn the tables over asap. Plates are pulled even before you’ve finished, if you don’t grab hold. Unless you require gargantuan portions, the two starter option works perfectly well, and your wallet will also thank you for it.

Service and food were outstanding. There was a wide choice of fish; the lobster was $5 less than a local “dive.” I should have gotten it. I’m sure it would have been prepared perfectly.

Great location to eat at. Nice to sit outside with spaced tables. The service is consistently excellent. Great bread. The clam chowder is terrific as was the scallop salad. The only reason for not giving 5 start is that some of the lettuce in the beet and goat cheese salad was a bit slimy.

Beautiful patio...lovely garden with pines and flowers...nice lighting.
Immediate and friendly service...staff checked during meal to see if we needed anything.
Lobster risotto was delicious and included two small tails as a garnish. Seafood Diablo was spicy, but equally outstanding. Shared a slice of carrot cake which was one of the best ever ordered anywhere...frosting was creamy and crunchy. All around perfect night.

There were 4 of us. Three meals came out perfect. Mine did not, my tuna came out way over cooked. They did replace it and it was good. The service was good but I had expected a little more attention. We had to ask for additional water and we’re not offered additional drinks. Overall it was a very nice place.

The meal was great, but since we were out-of-towners we decided to try the "Boston Cream Pie". It was a great disappointment, nothing like to Boston Cream Pie we've had elsewhere (including previous visits to Boston). We recommend staying away from that dessert.

I chose Atlantic Fish to celebrate a birthday luncheon with relatives from out of town and I wasn’t disappointed! Despite the lunchtime setting, our service and meal was exceptional, down to the creme brûlée complete with happy birthday script in chocolate sauce and a candle! Amanda, our server was attentive without being overbearing, making recommendations for wine and accommodating a non-drinker with fun mocktails. Hands down the best seafood restaurant in the city!

We had a wonderful dinner at Atlantic Fish last night. It was full to capacity, but service and food were both excellent. We started with oysters followed by wonderful crab cakes. Our server was Nicholas and he did a great job on a crowded night. We will definitely return to Atlantic Fish, one of our favorite Boston restaurants.
