Latitude 43 Ratings and Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised by this place. I was excited for the good New England seafood but the sushi turned out to be a wonderful addition. The service was great and the decor in the space is very unique! For people who love old boats of or anything nautical themed Gloucester is a great place anyway but the addition of the old boat hull integrated into this space is really outstanding!
This is not our first time at Latitude 43, and we always look forward to eating here when we are in the area. This time, it wasn't quite as spectacular as it has been in the past. Most dishes were oversalted, and a medium steak was dangerously close to well done. I hope it was just a bad night.
We were looking for something on the North Shore and this restaurant had wonderful reviews on Open Table. We went for Easter brunch which was a departure for them as they are a seafood restaurant - but the food was so terrible that it would be surprising they could make their regular menu well. The breads and pastries tasted like they were purchased from a supermarket - cold, bland, and generally awful. The other breakfast items (scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, french toast, etc.) reminded me of the institutional cooking of a hospital cafeteria. The coup de grace were the carving station meats - roast lamb - so dry it was inedible; roast beef so bland why bother eating; ham - I just gave up at that point. But, great coffee!
This was our third time at this restaurant. The first visit was great. The second was not good but we decided to give it another try. We will not be returning. The service was poor. Calamari was overcooked and tasteless. Our meals were ok but for $25 we got five very small scallops and some rice. The hostess was pre occupied and was not attentive when we arrived or when we left. Not a good experience. Too many restaurants to choose from that we are happy with to waste time and money at Latitudes.
First of all, the food was exceptional, which is the most important thing to me, and the cappuccino was the best I've had anywhere. Our server was also terrific and answered all our questions, adding both information and perspective without going overboard. The deduction of a star for service comes from our arrival experience, which was slow and confused. The moderate noise rating is a compilation: conversation was easy, but the background music (radio?) was somewhat unpleasant and intrusive. However, the food was special enough that I would happily go back.
As usual, Lat 43 met expectations. The menu had changed since my last visit which is always a great surprise. We started with the beet salad. Nice presentation, but the beets lacked punch - they were a bit bland. The ciopino was fantasic, and filling. My wife opted for the pan seared scallops and rissoto which looked and tasted great, although the scallops were a bit on the smaller side. Overall a great meal.
The sushi was a bit less than fresh tasting. I suppose that is what you get with "chef's choice"...the chef seemed to choose the old stuff.
Not entirely kid-friendly, we were looked at as a bit of an anomaly.
Atmosphere was trying to hard to be something...not sure what, but just trying too hard.
Since we had eaten at this restaurant on two earlier occasions, we were very disappointed with the meal.I ordered one appetizer and two sides. The appetizer, short rib ravioli, consisted of two large, tough ravioli stuffed with dry, super-lean meat; the accompanying root vegetables consisted of four pieces of small chunks of over-sized poorly-cooked carrots. The planked sweet potatoes (three "planks")sounded interesting, but one of the three was so hard and underdone, that I had no tool that could handle it. My wife's pasta was underdone, and did not have a pleasing taste. The creme brulee was tasty. We do not expect to return.
Not sure what happened this weekend but the restaurant looked a mess with all the ceilings ripped apart. Not sure if there was a flood, fire or some problem being fixed but something should of been done to make it look more presentable. This was a minor inconvience compared to the restaurant not having enough menu's for all its patrons or enough staff to cover all its tables. Sharing menus was a new experience but all in all the food was great, hopefully it was just an off night.
I've only had the sushi, but we are always very, very happy with it. You get what you pay for, and this is sushi worth paying for. I'm a traditionalist so I can't speak for their innovation with sushi, but my daughter likes "exotic" rolls and she is always happy there too. For me, it comes down to the fish, and their fish is the best!
By far our favorite restaurant on the North Shore. The sushi is absolutely incredible and the rest of the menu is amazing as well. Great selection of wine, beer and cocktails. We've never been disappointed after several visits. Wonderful atmosphere - not to loud, not too quiet. The view is beautiful during the day, but going at night is just as special. To top it off the service is fantastic.
Lat 43 has taken an old restaurant icon of Gloucester to a whole new level. The efforts they have made to upgrade the entire Rogers Street pier area is outstanding. The ambiance of the building from the outside carries into the interior with the layout of a sitting area with a granite fireplace to the Sushi pit overseen by a beautiful steel sculpture octopus. Then the semi open cooking area with the rescue boat hanging in the ceiling makes it uniquely Gloucester. Oh Yeah - the food is excellent both in taste and presentation.
A beautiful restaurant - we were there after dark so verdict is out on the view of the harbor. Drinks were delicious - the cocktails were generous on the alcohol, so you didn't feel like you were drinking juice. The steamed clams were delicious and I loved the skirt steak with lobster salad and sweet potato "tots." My husband was too busy scarfing down his pasta bolognese to comment, so I'll have to assume based on his clean plate that it was tasty! The desserts (which were included in a coupon we used) were okay, nothing I'd save room for next time but we had no problem eating them. It was pricey, but you expect that for a fine dining restaurant. Service was prompt, water glass was always full without feeling rushed. Check it out!
It was our first time eating at Latitude 43. It was a nice, clean restaurant. Our service was mediocre. He didn't seem to care whether we were there or not. We had soup to start, the taste of it was good, but it was barely warm, as if it was sitting for awhile, which it probably was since it took about 10 - 15 minutes to get our soup. Our entrees were seved hot. They were good, but lacked presentation.
The food is great here. I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed with the food. My boyfriend, who is a food snob, said the clam chowder and salmon was by far the best he had ever had. I had sushi and it was delicious. Service was ok. the waitress was a bit slow, but it was very busy. I will absolutely be going back.
I was looking forward to this restaurant...the waitress can make this a bad experience as in our case. Poor and unattentative service. First started with Fried calamari appetizer which was serve cold and not crisp. I asked for a new fresh order and was answered that it was fresh.Was finally served a new order with tomato sauce instead of Asian sauce, but asked for extra sauce., did not come until we're were finished eating with limited sauce. ( it would have turned cold again ).My entre was swordfish,advertised with garlic aoli and lobster broth preparatio,.mine contained a red pepper coulie. I don't eat peppers.Again, I questioned the buser who severed ,never returned.Waitress never came back either. Not an experience I would recommend
The menu was varied and made for some very tough choices, but everything was delicious! Soups stood out as being especially inspired. Cocktails and sushi were a delicious start. The rest of the menu need some serious exploring and enjoying. The fish was fresh and beautifully prepared. I love more than 30 minutes away, but will definitely make the trip back.
