We just went there this week by recommendation of my nearby hotel concierge for a good seafood restaurant. We had reservation at 6PM but didn't get the table until 620PM and we felt a bit down because this restaurant had been packed since earlier evening. However, once we got to our table, service was excellent despite the crowd and we... More

Great seafood RR in Boston. Great service. Great area on Boylston St. I really cannot find anything negative to say. Sat at the bar with a friend. Wonderful barkeep. I will be back again.

We had great service at Atlantic Fish Company - our waiter was excellent. We ordered oysters as an appetizer. Instead of getting 6 of one type of oyster, we asked him if we can sample the three types. No problem at all. When I wasn't quite sure of which wine to get, he brought out a taste so I can... More

Having read reviews on this site we pre-booked for our first night in the City. Although it was a wet Tuesday night at the start of October, the place was very busy so we were glad we booked. I had oysters to start and the shrimp linguine. The food certainly lived up to the hype and the drinks were reasonable.... More

We went to this restaurant on the basis of reviews and in particular for lobster seeing as it is in greater abundance here and better priced than back in the UK. We went on a Sunday night and the place was heaving, luckily we had booked and only had to wait about five mins for our table. We decided to... More

RESERVATIONS are a must! We had them, but we heard the hostess telling people at 7:30 that there wouldn't be tables open until after 10pm! The meal was great and the service was excellent. Nice wine and cocktail list, great mood and ambiance inside.

When we travel we usually only visit a restaurant once to ensure we enjoy as many as possible. Here we have the exception. The food is beautiful, creative and a taste sensation. Staff top notch and great and affordable. Justifiably one of Bostons top restaurants, so convenient to Copley Square

It was OK. Nothing fantastic and our fish was overcooked. The spearmint pie was the best and clam chowder was not bad too

We returned to this restaurant (close to the Lenox hotel) and it was another wonderful meal. Caroline at the front desk was very helpful and welcoming as was our server, Nicholas. Scallops were delicious as was the blackened salmon. The corn pudding side is not to be missed. Only criticism would be on the gnocchi- I didn't care for lemon... More
