Overall we had a great time. But our table was right next to the automatic door to the patio and it was super distracting.

Latitude 43 was great. The service was very responsive and the food excellent (except for the braised short ribs which were not as tender as they should have been--probably happened to be a bad cut that day; get the seafood!). The managers were dynamic and responsive. Handled expertly a surprise birthday cake which we had brought in. We'll definitely be back.

The fisherman’s platter was excellent and abbondante. I had the scallops which were also very good. Would like to try the sushi next. Very good service and food and ambience on the water.

I had seen Latitude 43 on Phantom Gourmet and decided that while staying at the Beauport I would go there for dinner one night. The food was not worth the price and I would have been better off spending my money else where.

We always enjoy Lat 43 and the service was great for our special event and generally everything was really good except for this time and the last several times when I have ordered any variety of salmon sushi, it is fishy and stringy and I couldn't eat it. The tuna tasted metallic as well. Sometimes the fish buying is just better than others I guess. Spicy salmon press box used to be my favorite sushi of all time. I hope it gets better again.

My partner and I were visiting town and a few locals suggested here. I loved the clam chowder - with bacon! My boyfriend did not.
We both enjoyed our dinners - pan seared scallops and haddock - both cooked to perfections. The vegetable were seasoned just right and were delicious.
A bit high priced but it is on the water and in a tourist town. We would go again!

In the past Lat 43 has been a great place to eat. Saturday 3/17, hopefully, was an aberration. We had 6:30 reservations and everything (drinks, apps, meal) came so quickly we were done by 7:05. The waitress rushed us out of there, even though the place was half empty. And the food was subpar, I was sick the next day. I will give the place another chance since it's been spot on in the past. But I won't go until the weather is nice enough to sit outside and be served fresher seafood than what I had the other night.

Good meal. The service is always a bit disjointed here. Didn’t take drink order. Food took a long time. But friendly. They need to develop a more team oriented approach to service.

My wife was given a giftcard for Latitude 43 so we went on New Year's Eve. Food was wonderful. They make great scallops. I liked the sushi. Lucas, our waiter was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. Really nice dining experience!

The drinks were watered down. My whiskey sour was the color of water. My husband had ice in his beer. The restaurant was mostly empty. The host was sulky and unwelcoming. A disappointing evening. The food was just average and they brought our main courses when we were just half way through appetizers

This was our first time visiting Latitude 43 - we've walked past it several times on visits to Gloucester and never had gone in for whatever reason. Now, we will be driving to Gloucester to specifically eat there! The food was delicious... we had a picky eater with us who was thrilled to find lots of options, and the sushi (what my husband and I wanted to try) was exceptional. (I can't wait to go back and sit at the recessed sushi bar!)

Very confusing place. Doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be. Sushi bar + tavern + Oceanside dining + upscale dining prices. Decor and ambience matched that theme. Multi layered white drop ceiling with missing tiles and low sushi bar.

Food came out REALLY undercooked and had to be sent back. Beer was OK. Server was nowhere to be found for most of the meal even though we were trying to track him down to send the food back. Would rate this fair at best

All the food was delicious. Got the muscles, chowder and a half dozen oysters to start and everything was fresh and delicious. Couldn't stop dunking the bread in the broth of the muscles they were fantastic.

For dinner latitude 43 chicken and, on our servers suggestion I got the short ribs. Neither of these dishes disappoint in the slightest. The short ribs were very tender and flavorful. Didn't even need the knife. And the chicken was fantastic along with their amazing corn bread and Mexican sweet corn.

Desert was great! Flourless chocolate tort and tiramissu. Both great portions and delicious.

Our server was Andrew he was very engaging and knowledgeable with his suggestions which were all spot on. He was attentive and was never rushing even though we were there toward the end of the night. As a former server myself this guy was great.

My only complaint, which my gf disagreed with, was I felt the atmosphere was clashing. It had a cool waterfront feel outside the restaurant and sometimes in, and a Japanese/ sushi feel just in the middle of the restaurant. But that's something I can get over and will go back.

Sat outside on the deck near the water and seagulls. I had the jalapeño margarita which was delicious and the lobster roll with fries. The restaurant had sold out of fresh lobster during the day. Their lobsters come straight from the boat as do some of their fish. The waitress was amazing!

For a restaurant that is right on the water and has the opportunity to get it's seafood right from their backyard, food was not that fresh. Lobster roll and sushi we're a disappointment.
