Atlanta Fish Market has, by far, the best Seafood and sushi in the city. I've tried numerous items, including the Hong Kong salmon, friend lobster tail and Greek salad, but the sushi is the real winner. Tyson, the sushi chef sometimes has these specials that are unbelievable. The one I most recently had was the sushi grade salmon over fried ponzu rice, topped with tobiko and a chipotle cream sauce. It was PHENOMENAL. I came back a few days later to get the same thing. The main dining room can be a bit loud, so I opt for the tables near the front of the building next to the windows, or a seat back in the bar area where there's a sushi lounge and a relaxed feel. There's valet parking for $2 which is less expensive than I've seen in this area. The service is always excellent, and the bar tenders are friendly, ready to impress you with your cocktail.
I took my husband for lunch on his birthday, it was awesome!! The food was outstanding and the waiter was great!

The food at AFM is delicious. I had a chilean sea bass and salmon combo and my wife had the surf and turf special.
The service was excellent as well. When I made the reservation I told them it was my wife's birthday, and several times throughout the evening the staff would wish her a happy birthday. They even brought out a free dessert for her.
Our only issue was the ambiance. If you are looking for a romantic dinner, this is not the place. The atmosphere was akin to a food court environment, and the decor was abysmal and out-dated.
So as long as you don't really care about a romantic environment, we recommend Atlanta Fish Market.

Delicious food, from the Fish Market Hot Tower appetizer to the Blackened Atlantic Salmon (awesome!), AFM ""Chopped Salad"", Black Grouper, wine, and dessert... combined with spectacular service and excellent atmosphere!
Everything together created a perfect background for an enjoyable time for our whole group!

love love love this place! I have been about 5 times and always leave filled to capacity. The yummi yummi sushi rolls are the BEST! please try them on your visit. The entrees have never disappoointed and the servers are always attentive. If u make a reservation before 9 there is no wait even on a saturday. The tables in the back are extremely small though; the server had to shift things around just to make room. But other than that I love the place! Be careful; it can get pricey. We always end up paying at least $80 for two people not including tip.

waiter..was odd, but very attentive.
we ended the night with an oreo cheesecake- yummy, and the apple crumb cake with ice cream...friend thought top should have been crunchier...however, that didnt keep us from finishing it off!

I celebrated my birthday yesterday with my girlfriend and I have to say that the food surpassed my expectations. After rave reviews from parents and friends, I finally decided to check it out. Highly recommended was the calamari. The best I have ever had. Not too oily or fishy. Quickly flash fried and served with a great sauce. I had sushi , fried lobster tails and the wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese. Everything was super fresh and cooked perfectly. A nice ambiance throughout the restaurant. I will be visiting again shortly.

I really love this place. I've been there about 4x's and each time I go we leave full and satisfied. Everything was great from the appetizers all the way to deserts. They make great alcolohic drinks too. I ordered the King crab legs that came with asparagus and mashed potatos. Excellent choice if you are a crab llover and plenty of food to take home. My husband ordered the stuffed lobster. YUMMY! OMG you will be in heaven when you taste either entree. I recommend this place to anyone new in town or just looking for good seafood. The servers are very knowledgable as well. I'm going this Saturday for Valentines and I just can't stop thinking about it. My mouth is watering now......

When I want seafood in Atlanta, I always think of the Atlanta Fish Market. With fresh catch flown in daily, it is by far the best option in the city. They have a large menu selection for both lunch and dinner, with personal favorites such as the Peruvian Sea Bass, Grouper Francese, Crab Cakes (hands down the best I have ever had), and the legendary Fried Lobster Tail. Also, don't miss out on the Blue Cheese Caesar Salad, Fish Market Iced Tower, or the fabulous sushi menu!
As a native Atlantan and frequent diner of AFM, I have never once had anything but exceptional service. The wait staff is friendly and personable and very attentive. The atmosphere is perfect, fun and airy but also quiet enough to enjoy your conversation.

The decor was out of date. As soon as you walk in you can see the floor tiles are all broken off. Tables are put together so it looks like a cafeteria, not a romantic restaurant. We ordered the tuna carpaccio for an appetizer and all you could taste was the oil and onions drizzled on top. It was too oily for my liking. My main course of halibut tasted okay, but the green beans tasted like they were from a can (they were overly cooked) and the potatoes had a gamey taste. I'm not sure if they put chicken stock in them. The only redeeming quality was the good service, but it wasn't enough to bring us back.

I went to AFM on 10/4/08 because it was my sister's birthday and she wanted seafood so AFM is regarded highly for having great food. Firstly, we made reservations for 8:30 we didn't get seated right away because the whole party hadn't arrived yet. Okay, so once we all got there we still weren't seated. We got seated at about 9:15. What's the point in making reservations if we were going to have to wait anyway? Okay so we got the the Hot Tower appetizer for free since we complained about them not seating us on time. Then when we got our food.... for the price they charge for fish they sure don't give you enough. My waitress was very nice and the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were okay but other than that..... Not very special
