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.

Clam chowder excellent. Some dishes very ordinary with high price. Service simply terrible. Do not recommend for high price charged.

When we arrived, the table was not ready, we waited for approximately 25 minutes. They didn’t allow me to take the stroller to the table, although I mentioned in the reservation that I need it with me. My baby is 6-month old and can’t sit in high chair.
They were not helpful, not nice, and rude.

We loved the restaurant. Service was outstanding. Our waiter’s advice about food preparation was perfect. We had delicious clam chowder, halibut and sea bass, among the best I’ve had, and an outrageously decadent peppermint ice cream pie for dessert. One of my favorite restaurants ever.

We come up from NY to eat here regularly and everything is always exceptional. Last night we dined and had a mediocre experience. Our appetizer crab cake came out cold and wet. The waitress replaced it with a new one within 3 minutes but this one was only slightly better - warm at best. Our entree proteins (swordfish and cod) were both very good but both of the sides on our plate were cold. My husband had corn pudding and I had spinach and rice. Waters were no refilled during our meal and the service was lackluster. Chalking it up to a busy night due to graduation weekend but it was a disappointing meal.

My overall experience was good. The only part of the night that I wasn't happy with was the host. We had reservations for 4 at 6:45pm. We arrived on time and the host asked us to stand to the side and wait and as we did, other guests were sat as they came in.

I totally understand the set up of the dining area is a combination of tables for different size parties, however after I had to go back to the host and ask what was the hold up, we were finally seated and there were tables available to seat a party of 4....

Great buzzy place in good Boylston St location. Service was excellent. Mixed reviews on the food. Choose carefully. My Atlantic Halibut simply grilled was delicious but my partners Cod was too underdone. Vegetables were not done well, root veggies were underdone and broccoli was bitter and burnt tasting. But they do serve great fries! And some of the House Specialties we saw going past looked more appetising. Excellent Margaritas and a fantastic Sancerre, but at $218 we expected better.

Atlantic Fish doesn't get a lot of buzz, but I find it to be the most reliable, higher end fish restaurant in Boston. From the delicious bread, wonderful appetizers to the generously sized and expertly prepared main courses, I'm never disappointed. It's always busy, but I've never had bad service either.

The food was very good, I would highly recommend the crabmeat artichoke dip. The only reason it doesn’t receive a 5 star is because of the service. Our server disappeared for like 20 minutes when we were done with our meal.

We had a business dinner with an acquaintance this week. He requests Atlantic Fish whenever he is in Boston. We arrived early so started with a glass of wine at the bar. Promptly at 7:30 we were shown to our table near the kitchen. We shared a dozen local oysters (Duxbury and Westport). Our friend is not an oyster lover like we are, but he said they were the best oysters he had ever had! For entrées I had crab cakes, my husband had grilled salmon, and our guest had blackened tuna. Everything was delicious. Atlantic Fish has a good wine selection and we ordered by the glass. Though I did not get our waiter's name, service was impeccable. Thank you, Atlantic Fish, for another successful and fun dinner!

Cioppino and lobster risotto were delicious. However that lobster bisque was a little bit salty for me. We wanted to have a kids’ meal more quickly. We should have given note to them.

Opening Night at The Boston Pops

Dinner at The Atlantic Fish Company was the perfect way to start opening night at The Boston Pops’ 134th Spring Season. Getting to experience two of Boston’s venerable institutions on a lovely evening in May was wonderful. The staff at The Atlantic Fish Company are very attentive and professional. Our server, Eddie, and his table staff made us feel like we were “royalty” and his suggestion to try the freshly caught Striped Bass offering proved to be a great choice. My wife loves the Lobster Ravioli which never disappoints. Great restaurants continuously provide a total dining experience with excellent food, service and ambiance. Well done for 41 years.
