Good value

We had a late lunch at Naked Fish. The food was excellent; service was adequate. My wife had had dinner there earlier in the week and was disappointed. Lunch did not not disappoint - excellent lobster roll and very good seafood salad.

After spending the night at the nearby Westin Waltham, we drove to the Naked Fish for a late lunch. The menu offered numerous excellent options, and all were very reasonably priced, roughly $14-17 per entree. I had the grilled mahi mahi, and my business partner ordered the stew on the waitress's recommendation. The seafood was fresh and very tasty. The... More

Great for business meetings they move quick to get you in and out. A very nice date night. Online reservations make things easy. This restaurant has a Cuban influence in their dishes and master grill work. Fantastic bar and unique cocktails. I love it because its fresh food, good servers, and most of all its not the normal New England... More

We were catching up with our son for Mother's Day and initially wanted a waterfront restaurant but opted for a highly-rated eatery that served seafood! Naked Fish was quite busy on this evening--which was a good thing!--and despite the last minute reservation they were able to accommodate our party of four. The only drawback was that our booth was right... More

This was my second visit and both times the food was excellent. I was solo this time so I sat at the bar and the service was excellent. The salmon was good and the portions healthy. Great option if you are traveling to the area for business.

We have eaten at the Naked Fish several times, and always have had a great experience. I also was given a complimentary entree because I made an online reservation in the past and joined their mailing list. A great deal! Wait staff was cordial and efficient, drinks good, and food great.

This was my first visit to the Naked Fish. My broiled scallops with lemon risotto was so delicious, I can't wait to go back for more! The atmosphere was eclectic and comfortable, and the staff attentive but unobtrusive. Wonderful!

After having read all the great reviews of the Naked Fish I was looking forward to a great meal. Their fried seafood platter was the best but the rest of the entrees were uneventful. The guacamole was grey and while the entrees were ok they were not worth four or five stars. The atmosphere is good and the restaurant has... More

I took a classic New England's Clam chowder and crab cake and it was pretty good, the chowder especially. The crap cake was a bit too greasy for me, but it was still pretty tasty.You can get your food to go, in case that it's too crowded or you prefer to eat in your hotel room.
