Amazing on every level. I came during peak so was seated at the bar. The staff was incredible - super welcoming, almost apologetic about the wait.. a couple seated next to me waiting for a table was greeted twice by a hostess who on her own initiative kept them updated about the status of their wait. Bartenders were great. This... More

Liked the clam chowder, loved -loved -loved the lobster salad! The skinny pineapple mojito was very refreshing after a long afternoon of walking. It was very busy, full of locals, who offered great suggestions on the food. Bar set up was a bit weird, I felt like I was sitting in the middle of the aisle. Service was ok.

Food was outstanding and service was 5-star! We had oysters, a bottle of Decoy 2011, scallops, filet mignon and lobster. Each dish far surpassed our expectations and I found that the restaurant's pricing was very reasonable! Crammed many 5-star restaurants into our trip, this was the #1 highlight of our trip! If you go, tell Jess that Jojo from Toronto... More

I wish I had known about this restaurant before my last day in Boston. All I had room for were the fried clams and they were FANTASTIC!!! The kind I remember from 25-30 years ago that I used to get at the amusement parks in the coastal towns....loved them!! They even came in a brown paper bag :)

On a recent trip to Boston, we were looking for good seafood and fish and boy, did we find it. We had an absolutely delicious dinner there and went back the next day for lunch and again the night before leaving Boston. The food was so fresh and we enjoyed entrees and salads. Julie, the personable bartender, gave us great... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Atlantic Fish Company. The oysters were fresh and a great selection. All of our seafood was cooked perfectly and although the chowder was not the best we found it was still very good. The service was a little more standoffish than we are used to but no complaints either.

I recently accompanied my husband to Boston on business and after a disappointing meal the night before at Abe and Louies, we ventured into our reservations at Atlantic Fish with a bit of trepidation ( I do think both restaurants are owned by the same group but luckily Atlantic Fish is the better choice of the two) As we walked...

We had dinner recently at Atlantic Fish Company and were very satisfied with our meals and with our general experience during our time at the restaurant. However, I had called Atlantic Fish Company earlier in the week regarding parking, and was told that the garage charges a flat fee of fourteen dollars after five o'clock. We were not informed either... More

We had a really great meal at Atlantic Fish Company in Boston. The clam chowder was absolutely delicious and the service was terrific. All our meals were well-prepared and it was a very lively atmosphere. Our children are 12 and 16, but it probably would not be a place in the evening for younger children as it's an upscale restaurant.... More
