Latitude 43 Ratings and Reviews
Everything was perfect..... had seared scallops with cauliflower and brussels sprouts.... shucked oysters and a muddled cucumber martini. The baked haddock was outstanding with broccoli and potatoes. The waitress was knowledgable, very observant and polite. One of my favorite restaurants on the Northshore.
First bad experience at Latitude 43. My martini was tasteless. We had to ask for bread. These were 4 of us, we got 4 small pieces. We asked for a refill. We had to ask twice more before anyone remembered to bring that refill. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night, the waitstaff was busy but not slammed. We all ordered salmon, two well done and two medium rare. We got two well one medium well and one medium. I had to send back my medium well. It came back still overlooked and very bland bit did not taste like fresh salmon. Very small portions of fish and way too many potatoes. Not the way Latitudes had been in the past.
We had a wonderful experience at Latitude 43 while visiting Gloucester. The food was fabulous, very generous portions, and the menu offered a great selection of choices. The service was superb, and everyone was very friendly. We didn't get any sushi, but it too looked amazing. The bar, Minglewood Tavern, looked like a fun atmosphere and we returned for take-out which was also fabulous! A definite must if you're in the area! We were there for only a weekend and ate there twice!
Picked this place for its location to take our daughter out to dinner for Parents Weekend at her college. We were very happy with the location, and atmosphere. Dinner was delicious --- 2 of us had scallops and the other fried clams. Parking was a bit tough (Friday at 7 pm). The private lot was full. We were lucky to find a spot on the street.
We were seated promptly and our server was very good and attentive from start to finish. The beer was served nice and cold. The app we ordered (Asian-style calamari), the outside batter was too soggy for our liking. My wife and I both ordered the swordfish with risotto. Though tasty, we both thought the swordfish was over cooked. The risotto was very good. Dessert and coffee was good (brûlée). Atmosphere and overall dining experience was good. Surprisingly, the restaurant was fairly empty for a Friday night.
We've been meaning to get to Latitude 43 for years and may have overhyped it in the process as we were very underwhelmed. The ambiance is not on par with other Serenitee restaurants - overly bright lights, cramped spacing, boring decor. The food was just so-so. My husband's fish was good, but we expected a place in Gloucester to do better. I had 2 sushi rolls which were fine, but no better than what you can get from your local takeout place. Also, I noticed a little swarm of flies hovering around the sushi rolling area - I definitely wouldn't order it again here for that reason! Finally, our waiter was very friendly and offered good suggestions, but he was so slow: it took 10 minutes for him to come greet us and another 10 minutes (probably a little longer even) for him to take our order. There are better options in Gloucester so I don't think we'll be back. We absolutely love so many of the other Serenitee restaurant, but they could do better here!
An all-around great meal/experience. James H. took exceptional care of our table of 6 (including 2 young children). Beautiful presentation of fresh Oysters, accompanied by a wonderful Hendrick’s Martini; on to the delicious Spicy Tuna Rolls, the Fire-roasted Gazpacho, and the Scallop Entrée. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, they had two dessert specials: Coconut Cream Pie and Tiramisu – two of my favorites, couldn’t decide, so had both – glad I did. Best Coconut Cream Pie ever.
We've eaten at Latitude 43 many times before, and always enjoyed our meals. A little pricy, but you ARE on the (working) waterfront. Both indoor and outside seating, and the staff was very accommodating when one of our party changed his mind about where to sit. Good wine list (and a knowledgeable server) and great seafood. Others had sushi, the best around Gloucester, they said.
We were excited about going to a restaurant with a water view. Upon arrival we were seated promptly outside as requested. Our waitress took our drink order and those came out quickly. When it came time to order, asked our waitress why there a shrimp dish on the menu and our waitress proceeded us that we could order shrimp even though it was not the menu. So she ordered grilled shrimp but was told she could only get mixed veggies as she had wanted another one that was being used in another entree. Long story short, the meals came out via another server without the requested side of cheese. Eventually our server who seemed to be enthralled with a larger party came by and we told he cheese was missing. She promptly returned with side of cheese but nothing to serve it with. Her meal was very basic, shrimp with mixed veggies and sweet potato, not too exciting My short ribs were very good. Bill came and we were shocked with the $26 charge for her meal. The manage came by and we expressed our concern only to be told they use very expensive sweet potatoes. Our lasting impression was that we were overcharged and nobody cared.
We had several orders of Clam Plates, which were $26.00. That was not a problem. However there were only seven to eight clams on each plate. The plate was 3/4 full of french fries.
The view is lovely, but I think they take advantage of tourists and the season by skimping on their clam plates and probably other food entries.
The sword fish, my wife had was very good. The fisherman's plater one of our sons had was okay, but lots of squid, which is cheap to buy and again lots of french fries.
We were excited to try a new place on the waterfront of Gloucester . Upon arrival we waited almost 10 minutes to check in with our reservation and while we were checking in the hostess took a phone call. We were seated and our friendly waitress came right over to take our beverage order and to answer questions - she was very friendly and helpful. We split a fritter appetizer and shared the seafood platter. The seafood platter was overloaded with calamari with only a sprinkling of clams, haddock and shrimp. All in all the food was greasy - we love to order fried seafood when dining out but we're very disappointed in the greasiness of this platter. We waited 20 minutes after we were finished dining for our waitress to come and check on us - it seemed like forever . We were never asked if we wanted our drinks replenished and the wait time at the end was disappointing .
We have so many quality seafood restaurants to choose from - probably not returning to this place.
We have eaten at Latitudes over the years and find the food quality declining (except the sushi) and the value declining.....expensive for the quality of food. The service is just ok, but not exceptional and we had to ask for everything...the waitress did not offer bread, no additional water, no salt, no pepper - and our glasses were empty, and it was not at all a nice dining experience for my husband's birthday. The sushi remains very very good, and we agreed on leaving that that is all we will return for,a dn the food is not so great, especially for the high price tag retained as the quality of food has diminished over the years.
The waiter was very nice and extremely helpful, particularly in separating out our checks.
However he seemed spread to thin. IT took a long time to get menus, to get a drink order in, and then get the food. I ordered coffee after the meal and never got it. I think this waiter was working hard but it seems you do not have enough staff on to provide quality service.
Food was ok.
We were disappointed last year at our dinner visit to Lat43. This time, very good! The decor is lovely, and if the weather permits, outdoor deck seating is a treat. The service was five abd the foos was good - fish and chips, salmon, and chicken Caesar salad were all enjoyed. Try Lat 43 - you will like it.
We ate here Mpmday jul 18th, It is great location for a nice night of outside dining. But best for drinks and apps or a lunch in our opinion. The food is average, But nothing spectacular. The service was very good and everyone was helpful and friendly. The interior is nice but would benefit from updating. Overall an ok dinner but nothing that would make me come back again.
