This restaurant space has been refurbished and feels warmer and more intimate. The front of the house is very professional, as always. Server Kiyoshi
was on top of everything ...
The outdoor patio and the beautiful bar area both serve as great eating options too. Super fresh seafood - with many options available daily.

The food was amazing! Our server, Randy, was fantastic as well! He was attentive but not intrusive, He brought us through the history of the building and the signature chef dishes which sounded great but we had our eyes on the haddock and the lobster ravioli’s from the beginning so we went with those! I would definitely dine here again. 5 stars!

Went with a party of 5 celebrating a birthday on a Sunday afternoon. It was busy with a lively crowd, comfortable seating, nice decor. Service, food, cocktails were all wonderful. Nice selection of seafood and every one our dishes was cooked perfectly. The key lime pie was delicious. Definitely will come back.

We had a lovely time at Atlantic Fish! My boyfriend and I have visited before but we were excited to return for his birthday yesterday and share a New England Clam Chowder! He got the 2 pound lobster with crab stuffing - delicious! I got the Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass with lobster ravioli - amazing!! For drinks, we really enjoyed the sangria and mango tequila martini. Randy, our server took excellent care of us. He offered to take our picture and gave us a birthday dessert on the house. He made our experience extra special!

This was our first time out to dinner since the pandemic started and believe me we weren't disappointed. I had fried oysters for and appetizer and my wife had the lobster bisque. Both were delicious! I had the swordfish and my wife had the cod and we could not be more pleased with both our dishes. When we are in Boston Atlantic Fish is always our go to!

The worst lobster roll I've ever had. I've never had lobster that was so tough to chew. And for that poor quality there wasn't enough dressing on it. The little biscuits with the chowder were hard and stale. The chowder was fine and fish and chips were serviceable. I don't understand the ratings.

Was visiting my Boston college student. Superb service - friendly and knowledgeable staff. Also quiet booths available among the louder main area - nice if you want to catch up and hear the people you’re speaking with. Good wines by the glass. Perfect neighborhood - good vibe overall. I’d call it relaxed chic with a hint of tourist. Shrimp salad perfect. Well blackened shrimp and perfectly cooked. Yet- my steak was overdone. Didn’t complain. It’s not the service. Cliché I know to order steak and lobster - the lobster was perfect. Streak cooked too much to be medium - I know it’s a seafood place and steak is always suspect at any seafood place- but that could have been better. Enjoyed the atmosphere too much and dinner conversation to interrupt with a steak correction so let it go. Also the Boston Pie was over ambitious. Too much cream - not enough cake and while it looked beautiful dipped in chocolate, it became a sloppy mess with the first cracking of the spoon - it’s a miss. Overall though, I will definitely be back. I’ll stay with fish.

Food and service was great! My only complaint is we were seated at the table next to hostess stand and by the stairs to bathroom so it was a little too busy with people constantly walking by. If we had we been a table or two back it would’ve been better.
