Delicious and great service! Went here with my mom for a lunch spot close to new burry at and shopping. We both love seafood and this place does not disappoint! I have been here twice before on dates as well and every time the food and location have been perfect.

My only negative critique would be the outside decor does not match the dinning experience inside. Service was impeccable, light personal chit chat, but always moving. The entrees were perfectly cooked. However the star dish for us was the peppermint pie. Wow it was different in a positive sense of the word. I would rank the meal as one of... More

I strongly recommend this restaurant, if you are a seafood lover. I went with a friend of mine for dinner. The service was great, the food was very good. I enjoyed the mussels as an entree. Then the clams were delicious. My friend had the shrimps which she also said it was delicious. The portions were big. We were unable... More

Of the restaurants I've been to during my 5-day visit to Boston, Atlantic Fish is my favorite. I was impressed by the quality of the food they serve and the service they provide. Very welcoming even when it's crowded. I had the pan-seared Giant New Bedford sea scallops, which were perfectly cooked. My friend was also impressed with the Yellowfin... More

I visited Atlantic Fish for the first time on a recent Tuesday night. I was meeting one person for a business dinner and decided to make a reservation. I am glad I did as the restaurant was full by 6:30 with only bar seating available so definitely make a reservation. There is a good reason Atlantic Fish was crowded. The... More

Our group of 4 had a late lunch on 3/20. Easily got a table and was happy to have Dan as our server. Our guests were first timers and he is excellent at guiding people to great choices off the menu. Food and wine were great just like the atmosphere and service. Thanks Dan!!

Yes, this place is pricy even for Boston, but it is 100% worth it. As a displaced Mainer now living in Pittsburgh, I desperately miss good seafood. I went here for lunch and got some clam chowder and a lobster roll, and was EXTREMELY satisfied. The chowder was perfectly creamy and had just the right hint of briny flavor, and... More

Really nice waitstaff and attentive preparation of typical Atlantic seafood of our youth. Does for east coast seafood what so many west coast places have done. Create a unique personal style to the restaurant.

We had dinner here while visiting area colleges. We had the swordfish & lobster roll. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. The service was excellent. Our server was extremely attentive. They offer reduced valet parking rates as well as reduced parking rates at the Prudential Center parking garage which is a very short walk to the restaurant.

I previously wrote a stellar review for this place after my first visit several years ago. Since then, I have been back several times and made a point of stopping by almost every time I have been to the city. The quality of the food was always delicious and the service was excellent. Until now. This is the first time... More
