Latitude 43 Ratings and Reviews
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!
Nice location on Gloucester's waterfront -- it feels like you're a part of the ebb and flow of Gloucester's fishing fleet. The restaurant is clean and nicely appointed, but not overstated or stuffy -- lively and comfortable. There's a choice of indoor or outdoor seating on the deck by the water -- and the outdoor part can be under a protected awning area or on an open deck with an umbrella for each table. Servers were friendly, efficient and fun. I'd go there again.
Our waiter disappeared literally after taking our orders. We had to catch the hostess to ask where our drink order was, and also to tell her they brought the wrong sushi that one of us ordered. Never saw the waiter again until he brought us the bill. Over rated place.
The food is excellent - tuna is fabulous - all fish was so fresh and delicious - everything was great We sat at the outdoor dining by the harbor - so it's a great atmosphere - service was perfect - you won't regret this restaurant We will return on our next trip to Glouster
The food used to be much better. The fried fish was overcooked, heavy and the mussels had too much garlic. The lunch menu is very limited with no grilled sea food. The overall quality is not like it used to be. In the past the food was light with an Italian influence and distinctive items on the menu. Now it become medium standard food.
Latitude 43 is a decent seafood restaurant, nothing spectacular but overall the quality is good. I had the fried whole belly clams which were very good. The whole belly clams were a special, the fried clams that were on the menu were clams strips which I assume was a prepared product. The clam strips are described as local but that doesn't mean anything because Gorton's of Gloucester is across the street so an industrial clam strip could indeed be local. A proper fried clam is a whole belly clam so if you don't see them on the menu ask for them. I also had the clam chowder which was also good.
This restaurant is not what it once was.
We used to go there for the Whole Bellied Fried Clams, but they rarely have them anymore (this time was no exception). They were the main reason (other than the view) that we used to go there.
The menu is very limited, with no Hamburgers, Pizza, Tacos, or other America-style Comfort Food. There is a lot of Sushi, which I don't eat. But if it is something you enjoy, Latitude 43 may be right for you.
I have the Fish and Chips (over $20). The Fries were average. The Fish was good, but bland. If the Fries were hotter and tastier, and the entrée a little cheaper, it would have been good.
My children got Kid's Burgers with Fries, which at $9 was fairly priced, and which they enjoyed.
My wife had a Shrimp Salad. She tells me it was better than last time, but nothing exceptional.
Other than the water view (and maybe the Sushi) there is little to recommend Latitude 43 over other restaurants.
We arrived at the restaurant five minutes early. Parking was easy as there is a restaurant-owned lot next to the building. The greeter was friendly, the person who seated us was friendly, and the waiter was also friendly. Special thanks to the waiter, Alex, who was very tuned in to our needs, questions, and just very accommodating. Our entire dining experience was exceptionally pleasurable.
I rarely do reviews. I'm doing this one because the bartender got our drinks right, which happens only 50% of the time. And she gave us a proper pour, which happens only 5% of the time. The table next to us was one of those that gets invasively boisterous before the first round is done. Otherwise, the ambience was pleasantly family noisy (fun on a Saturday night).
Meals were excellent. All portions were too much (not my preference, but the doggie bag takeaway was today's lunch.
We'll go back again.
