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.

I enjoyed my dinner at the Atlantic Fish, my waiter was exceptional, the food was great and the desert was fantastic, the PO lace was quiet which allowed us to eat and enjoy our time there. I can't wait to go back and try other amazing things that they have on the menu.

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.

While the service at Atlantic Fish was excellent -- our server, Connor, was knowledgeable, personable, and attentive -- the food was unimpressive. The lobster crab Louie was so mild as to be almost tasteless. The Fisherman's platter contained some dry, overcooked pieces of whitefish, some tiny mussels, and some overcooked shrimp and scallops. The atmosphere at Atlantic Fish was lively and congenial, and the wine list was excellent, but the food was so lacking that I would not go back there again.

Our waiter, Christopher, was phenomenal! Very personable, humorous, and he valued our time. He truly treated us as if we were his only responsibility, but what was even better was we had the pleasure of watching him in action, responding and interacting with his other tables! A true gem of an employee! They are extremely lucky to have him!!!

I made a reservation well in advance but stuck in a corner with a small bench and chair. The sea bass recipe apparently changed since my last visit back in 2018. Did you change a clean healthy dish into a rich heavy cream with pasta dish?

We had a reservation for 2, Thursday at 8:15pm. We arrived at 8 and the hostess said we would be seated at 8:15 and we could go to the bar for a drink in the meantime. First impressions, it was very crowded and loud, , I had a bit of covid anxiety but we found a spot to have a drink....as I said it was crowded. The staff were so nice, we were seated at 8:25 at a fabulous table by the window (no outdoor seating this night as it was pouring) We had a lovely bottle of wine and I went for the baked stuffed lobster which was gorgeous. My husband said at some point later that it was my birthday and the brought a delicious slice of key lime cheesecake (my choice)with happy birthday written on the plate in chocolate. Go for it! It is a bit pricey, but the staff were great and so was the food! We had a wonderful night!

Our waitstaff were personable & efficient. The asparagus side was surprisingly smaller than expected (4 stalks). The raw oysters were well done. The fried whole belly clams were well cooked w/ a tasty tartar sauce. The clam chowder was solid. I think that the noodle side that came with the octopus was a little flat. The wagyu carpaccio was the dish I enjoyed the most.

The lobster meat was just thrown in a bowl and the crabmeat or crab cake whatever was on top and was burnt on the outside, the Lobster had absolutely 0 taste and the presentation was so poor that not only will I never go back but I will tell people to never go there. We were offered a free dessert for a birthday but instead drove to Chart House for dessert and after dinner drinks. This was after 3 weeks of planning and calling and ended with the worst meal and service ever.

This was my second time having dinner here and it was not as good of an experience as my first. Being seated right next to the kitchen entrance with carts of dirty dishes rolling by constantly was not pleasant. Or food was good and timely however our waiter disappeared for a very long time after we were done eating and we were left staring at each other saying “ if you see him call him over”. Yet we never saw him. When he finally returned we just asked for the check. We were no longer interested in finding out about dessert or coffee. We had been waiting too long. The start of our meal up till dinner was good until that point. The noise level also bothered me which is irritating when you’re left there for a long period of time waiting for your server. I would go back. But I would refuse the table near the kitchen and pray for a more responsive wait staff. My first experience here was awesome and so was our waiter.
