Went for New Year's Eve Dec 31, 2017.
Seated right away @ 10:45 -that was the best part of the evening.
The place was almost empty with a live jazz band playing.
The menu- didn't know the usual price fix was 3x the normal price and not everything on it was truly available. It definitely was not worth it, I will never do this again.
Server was short with us at every touch.
They did not have the desert i wanted- it was on the menu but they "ran out".
We were not served bread. the server was surprised there wasn't any bread on the table.
Later, when the server came by asking how we like the apps-we didn't get them yet so she scrambled to deliver.
When we did get the apps, the Crab appetizer was a plate of lox topped by a little bit of crab.
They rushed my date's 1st course practically taking it away while she was still chewing. She couldn't help but laugh out loud uncomfortably because it was so surreal we were being treated so poorly.
The main courses came out very quickly-but were somehow already dried out?
The server came over ready to give me the bill -but we had to tell her we didn't have dessert, yet. We also didn't have the champagne for New Year toast.
Dessert was served, again not the apple tart that was on the menu but something else i did not like or eat.

I asked for the check, paid-tipped the 20% because I used to be a server and know how hard the work is(especially on a holiday).

Shockingly, throughout dinner we overheard staff talking negatively about the guests who were there earlier in the evening. They were discussing these things like they didn't even see us or care that we were sitting there.

I consider this a lesson learned.
This was an awful way to bring in the new year.
I would not recommend this experience to anyone.

We went here to celebrate New Years. We were greeted with an underwhelming overpriced special New Years menu. Our waitress was very rude, brisk, and did not seem to want to serve us this set a horrible tone for the evening right out of the gate. The food was well cooked, but very bland and for $50 a course that equates to horrible. Could not have been less impressed. We rarely feel like we wasted our money on a night like this, but we for sure did this time.

Atlantic Grill is always a great place to come too since their food is so great and their services are wonderful.
We even went there for New Years Eve like so many other people, families, etc, and they even had a band playing- which was fun!

Happened to be a PreFixe menu because of NYE. Just a reason to charge more? Didn’t offer any better service than usual but the food wasn’t as great as the last time we dined there either.

We were there New Year's during the prix fixe menu time. The appetizers were all very good. Some of the main courses came out cold. There was not surf in the surf and turf. The lobster tail was devoid of lobster and there was a tiny piece from the claw on the plate. The filet was delicious and a very generous portion. The langoustine also had nothing in the shells. Thank goodness there were scallops in the dish. Desserts were tasty.
During much of the meal we were cold. The air conditioning was blowing (it was a frigid night) and we asked for some heat which came on for a short time and then the air was back.

Service could have been much better...we were charged a lot of money for small portions and they weren't very accommodating when we mentioned we had a food allergy. Food was ok but took a very long time and wasn't worth the price. Wouldn't come back.

We went for an early New Year’s Eve dinner. Perfect! We also had our first date at your restaurant one year ago. So far, so great!
I think we were even seated at the same table as our first date. Happy coincidence.

I had family come to town for the weekend and I was very excited to take them to Atlantic Grill for brunch. Once we sat down we were told that the brunch does not come with a complimentary drink during the holidays. What kind of anti-holiday policy is that? When i asked why the waitress said, “i don’t make the rules”. We should have left and went to another restaurant.

Sushi was sub-par, food was lukewarm and not fresh, and potatoes were soggy. I ordered a side of bacon that never came and when I said to take it off the bill the waitress said she can wrap it to go, what? The second drink I ordered never came.

This place used to be so great, today it was a waste of time and money.

Had a wonderful meal here with three business colleagues. The service was spot on and the fish was fresh and cooked to temperature. One small suggestion is that they offer a better selection of wines by the glass. Other than that, I can recommend without hesitation.

The quality of the food is always quite good here. However, my favorite room which has windows out to third Avenue was curtained off for a private party, so the rest of the restaurant was quite dark. The sea bass sushi roll was quite tasty and very filling. My friend had a Caesar salad, which is no measure of a restaurant's chef! We lost power for a few minutes, and the restaurant was packed. Surprising for a mid week lunch. Still a quality restaurant.

Gave another chance to this place who has been around for quite some time. First review wasn't good, this one unfortunately isn't better. We ordered a big seafood tower and noticed pretty much everything in there was old or low-quality. The crab claws were watery and the lobster had zero taste. The consistency of the seafood was not firm. A disaster. Very expensive place for very low quality ingredients. It was basically inedible and the cost of it exuberant. Needless to say, I am taking this place out of my list forever.
