Simply delicious

Very popular place - chose to eat at the bar since it was a wait for the table. A bartender, Amelia, greeted me with a friendly smile and recommended the chowder and sole. Both were terrific and the service was excellent.

Atlantic Fish have the most wonderful Crab Cakes! I can't get enough of them and only wish I could eat out more often.

Beyond Yummy

I was in Boston with my boyfriend for Labor Day weekend and we had no dinner plans for our last night on Sunday. The concierge recommended Atlantic Fish and so we went in without a reservation.
We waited about 2 minutes and got a great table. The menu was a bit overwhelming because there was soooo much to chose from, but the food was great. I think I could have picked anything on the menu and liked it.
To start with we got shrimp (which were very fresh and pretty HUGE) and the Maine Crab & Artichoke Dip which was awesome. For dinner we split the Sea Bass which was very well prepared and cooked. It came with lobster pasta which was sooooo good.

I would definitely come back to Atlantic Fish and recommend it to anyone... the food was awesome and the service was really great :)

Great Seafood

I was in Boston this past week for work. One night we ate at the Atlantic Fish Company. They were really busy but since we had made reservations we didn't have to wait too long. I was impressed with the restaurant, they were very welcoming and even though they were very busy, we still had great service. We ordered the Maine Crab & Artichoke Dip as a starter, which was very good. I also ordered a bowl of their Clam Chowder which was amazing and I got the Maine Lobster for my dinner, which was cooked to perfection. Overall my dining experience was excellent and I will definitely be coming back here next time I'm in Boston

awful food

Appetizers were unexceptional. Glass of $12 wine was sour. But the $32 halibut entree tasted like reconstituted fiberboard - dry, tough, crumbly and flavorless, nothing like what fresh fish tastes like. My wife's striped bass was seriously overcooked. We returned both; the second bass was edible but ordinary, but the second halibut was no different than the first. A spoiled dinner experience.
Our impression was that this is a tourist trap - we went based on the recommendation of hotel's concierge and the fact that it takes a couple hours to get a table.

AMAZING SEAFOOD!!!

Absolutely wonderful melt-in-your-mouth fish.
Great attentive service, the waiter was constantly
refilling our water glasses for instance. My only
complaint is that the strawberry shortcake was
lousy. But it's the best fish I've ever had, at a
very reasonable price.

Great for a special occasion

My wife and I went back to Boston to visit friends, etc. and made a reservation at the Atlantic Fish Co. for our anniversary. Everything was great: service, food, atmosphere... I told them it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, so after a wonderful meal they brought us a free decadent chocolate raspberry cake. We even called the manager (Todd McCullough) over to tell him about our experience. We highly recommend AFC for any special occasion.

Yum, yep, yum

What can I say, this place does seafood well and our waitress was awesome. That's all I ask for in a restaurant, great food and a smile. Atlantic delivered. Was working in Boston in June and able to dine in this great establishment. I had a dip for an appetizer and loved it. The fresh bread as a great touch. My entree of swordfish was cooked excellent and my side of asparagus and spinach complemented my meal well. The east coast totally destroys the west coast in dining and Atlantic adds to that fact.

Very good Restaurant

We go to Atlantic Fish every once in a while and usually leave very satisfied. The food is great (I highly recommend the raw bar appetizer- $60 for 4 but we get it as a meal for 2). I usually make a reservation and get sat without a problem at the better tables. Service is prompt an courteous. The place is upscale and in a great location and I have never had problems with them food. If I ever want to get dressed up and go out to dinner this is the place I choose.
My only 2 issues are that I am pretty much always carded when we order wine. I'm 25 and usually there with parents and am the one doing the ordering, it just feels a little weird.. but I guess if it's their policy (just similar restaurants typically don't). We also once had a waiter who seemed to try to overcharge us, ordered a glass of wine and he insisted that he'd give us another one to try so we could chose which one to get, then charged us for both.. when he saw us looking at the check ran over and said he made a mistake and then only left the $13 one when I had originally asked for the $8.. felt a little cheated which was unexpected. I'm sure this can happen anywhere and we haven't seen this guy since. But had to write about it...

Aside from that I still love the restaurant so I'd definitely recommend it.

Couldn't Have been Better

My family never goes out to eat because they always are left leaving dissappointed and usually say they can make better food at home. I was given the task of finding a place to eat for the 6 of us for Father's Day Brunch. Needless to say I was nervous, but we all love seafood so I figured everyone would find something they liked. Boy was I suprised! We all got an appetizer, entree and 3 of us got dessert and I could go on all day about the unsurpassed freshness, creativeness and classic taste the food had but I must comment on the supurb service. The staff is really very knowledgeable. Everyone at out table had smiles all day. We had a 12:30 reservation and stayed till around 4. It was relaxing, and enjoyable for very second! Everyone had a wonderful meal, My sister is a bit of a conniseour and she was floored by her salad of salmon,sea bass, shrimp and scallops, My mother got the scallops and didn't stop to speak till it was gone, my father, the sea bass blackened and he has impressed, me and my nephew got the swordfish and it was truly the most succulent steak of swordfish I have ever had, finally my brother in law had the crab cakes and he said that it was like BUTTER! It was a great experience for my stomach,my family and I can recommend this place to anyone without a doubt to be the BEST seafood in Boston. BAR NONE

Back Bay's Best

Went there on New Year's Eve with my girlfriend. Delicious food, amazing service and a wonderfully lively (but not too noisy) atmosphere. What's more, the bill was more than reasonable. Definitely a great spot and we'll definitely return the next time we're in Boston.

amazing

We had a 730 reservation, got there a few minutes early, and beacuse of the red sox game, the place was packed, everyone was waiting till the game was over. we didn't get seated till 745. The manager kept apologizing and gave us our dessert for free. Had he not acknowleged us and kept checking in with us, we would have left, but his attentiveness made all the difference. Our waiter was friendly and informative. Our food was outstanding. Make a reservation if going on a weekend.

Business Lunch Must

Atlantic Fish is among the top places that I take my clients for lunch. I am never disappointed with the quality of the food and the portions. Our waitress, Nicole, was very pleasant and made terrific recommendations based on our dietary restrictions and personal preferences. She was also very prompt in responding to our requests, which is very important at lunch when there are time constraints.

The presentation of the food was exceptional and the wine list was appropriate for the menu consisting of mainly seafood. I was also impressed with the management. It is very rare to have a manager come and see how your lunch was and check to make sure you are enjoying your meal during lunch. Atlantic Fish management team does this well and consistently.

My only complaint is that they don't have black napkins for your lap. It seems evertime I dine here, both me and my clients are in black or dark gray suits that end up covered in white lint from the napkins. This isn't such a big deal at dinnertime, but when you have to go back to work with a white lap, it's annoying.

One of the best seafood restaurants in boston!

Everything I have ever eaten here (and believe me I come here often, so I have had a lot), from the chowder, to the seafood linguine, has been beyond delicious. The waitstaff is also excellent.

Excellent lobster and bisque.

On a recent trip we dined at The Atlantic Fish Company on our first night in Boston. It set the standard for excellent food and service (thank you, Amanda!) for our trip to Boston and Cape Cod. The food was excellent and the service, on a very busy evening, was impeccable. The wine list is good and not too pricey.

This will be our first stop for dinner on our next trip to Boston.

AMAZING SERVICE, wonderful food

this is my favorite resturant out of the entire boston array of resturants!!! I would have to declare that our server Grace was absolutely amazing. She is the sweetest young waitress I have ever met. She was so helpful with ordering a bottle of wine and suggesting what wines would go with which entrees and appetizers. Everyone MUST order the seared ahi tuna, it was absolutly incredible. And for entrees, the pan seared sea bass over a bed of escarole with a side of lobster ravioli was to die for. The resturant is always busy, but never too busy to attend to all of your needs. Grace was incredible, I'd even request for her at the door because she is such an amazing waitress. Also, don't forget to order dessert, because the peppermint stick candy cake is the best thing in the entire world. ENJOY YOUR FOOD!!!
