Disappointing. Only good thing was the service. Very limited brunch menu. Overpriced for the amount of food. Plus the restaurant automatically added 20% tip and 2.9% covid recovery cost- pre tax.
No thank you…… I will not be back nor will I recommend.

Atlantico was a pleasant surpise. I only picked it due to its proximity to the Imagine Van Gogh show which we attended. The food was amazing--we had petite clams, prawns, mussels, cawliflower, and a caesar salad with chicken. Every dish was flavorful and great. And the warm olives with citrus were outstanding. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I would definitely go back there.

Most restaurants choose music and volume to accommodate the staff. The music at Atlantico was monotonous and too loud.

Happy to find such a good restaurant open for lunch- the Mariscada
was a hit- 3 out of 4 ordered it- and the other opted for the Portuguese kale soup- very tasty and filling- especially with the huge basket of bread we were served- the wait staff was friendly and courteous and checked on our needs without being overbearing. Looking forward to dinner there- had a daytime event so that’s the reason for the lunch.

Great service, beautiful place and convenient location. We went there for brunch and the brunch menu was pretty small. They also serve everything from the main menu all day long, so you won’t leave starving, but I wish they had more breakfast options. Overall it’s a very nice place and I definitely recommend it.

We’ve been here twice and sat at the bar both times. Both times have been lovely and we honestly loved every single dish we had. Incredibly fresh seafood, friendly and helpful service, great drinks. You have to try the patatas bravas and the hamachi crudo! Will definitely go back and sit at the bar again for date night

The food and drinks were absolutely amazing! We went for brunch and I had a cocktail with dehydrated skittles in it, which was very good. The guacamole, empanadas, and waffle tacos on the brunch menu were wonderful. The service and ambiance were excellent.

The appetizers were fabulous- Brussel sprouts, potatoes, and cod cakes were amazing. . The Portuguese soup was a little bland- needed more meat, kale, and potatoes. The chicken was good, not great but the steak was excellent.

Creative, fish and vegetable centric small plates. Delicious specialty cocktails. Don't forget to order the seafood heavy paella right when you get there (has a 30 minute lead time.) You won't be sorry.

This was a new find for me & is now on my “go to” list! The warm greeting, prompt and attentive service, beautiful decor and generous, tasty, FRESH servings were all assets. Nearby, on street parking (in Boston?!!) was another plus! My friend’s sandwich contained spicy peppers which she had not expected. Because there were very few diners, the chef was able to quickly prepare a fresh one (without peppers)! My salad was huge, tasty, beautifully plated and delicious. The spacious, light filled setting suited our enjoying a leisurely meal. I will definitely return!

Atlantico always impresses me. I’ve been for casual lunch, date night, birthday. The food is consistently excellent, creative with flavor and texture. The service here is probably some of the best in Boston. Great wine list and a staff ready to make recommendations and always accommodating. I would send anyone to Atlantico, definitely one of my go-tos in Boston.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing drinks and our server was great as well with help from a great manager. Food was rough. The first scallop dish we ordered was delicious and we loved the broccoli salad and soup until we found hair in each dish. They were sent back and taken off the bill. The pork steak was delicious and then I ordered the scallops and they were so dirty that I was chewing several grains of dirt with each bite so those had to go back as well. Left so hungry we had to go to another restaurant for the night.

Cute spot for drinks and maybe it was just an off night, but, it was a rough dinner for us.

I've dined at Atlantico twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch during the week as in a fairly quiet restaurant - the service and food really good.

Dinner the food was good - a wee bit pricier for the entrees compared to size. When I had dinner the restaurant was very full and busy. Staff was challenged a bit to get things out. I didn't have an issue with that as it was good to see a restaurant so busy during these times.

Only advice I would suggest is if you want your sides at dinner to be hot, ask the server to have everything delivered at once. Menu items come out when they are ready. Our sides came out well before the entrees so the sides needed to be redone.

I'll certainly return - the food is really yummy and the staff is nice

We had a perfect dining experience. The food was cooked in accordance to my food allergy- pepper. Not easy.
Wait staff was as good as it gets.
Food was fabulous.
My only regret- I'm not familiar with many wines on the menu.
But I continue to eat here, and will have to keep trying new ones!
