This is a must go restaurant if you want to experience good seafood. Raw Bar is fun place to hang out. May be a little pricer, but worth the cost.

If you're in Boston you have to go here. Food is wonderful, staff are great. Second visit during our holiday - Christmas Day and it didn't disappoint.

We are fortunate to come form the land of fresh and magnificent seafood ... This is the best lobster we have had. Ever. A very generous serving with accompanying corn on the cob and potatoes, the lobster to share is nothing short of sublime. Meaty, generous and oh so fresh, it is delicate and perfect lobster at its very best.

I have been a few times to Atlantic Fish. Tried their seafoos and blackened swordfish. Everything is very very good. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a high end seafood restaurant

I ordered swordfish and it was the best I had ever had. I live on the west coast and have high expectations when it comes to quality seafood and Atlantic really knocked it out of the park for food as well as exceptional dining experience.

What a beautiful restaurant and ambience. We have eaten here a few times and are always happy when we leave. The food is flavorful and there are many selections.
