Good, but not amazing

I'm writing this review because I read TripAdvisor reviews before I went to this restaurant, and I thought my 2 cents might help. Honestly, most of the reviews I read were not complimentary, which gave me pause, but a couple were good, and I already had the reservation, so we went ahead. Our... read more

The restaurant looked inviting with sidewalk tables. We were shown to one by the charming Maitre d' and had a delicious lunch of sparklingly fresh seafood and fish. The same could not be said for the yellow pansies in the window boxes which had wilted. When we commented the waiters were quick to fill water jugs and give them a... More

High quality food in Copley. The place feels a little bit touristic but the food is great and there is good ambiance. I got the chilled platter and went home with a huge smile in my face. It was a great choice.

I've been to Atlantic Fish many times. The meals are almost universally good. I've had the occasional mediocre meal but never even close to poor. Saturday was on the exceptional side. But what moved it from 4 to 5 stars was the matre'd. We arrived just in time for our reservation only to find that I messed up the day... More

We arrived on a very busy evening and started with a warning that notwithstanding a reservation made by our hotel, we might wait a while to be seated. Although the wait was not as long as I feared, we were off to a bad start. The restaurant crowds tables together and service is efficient. The pace of ordering, eating and... More

Looking for a place to eat around the Prudential Center and saw the restaurant across the street. Great lunch value and our meals were amazing. Service was good and our waitress very attendant. They have outdoor seating but it's a little overcrowded. My tuna salad was fresh not out of the can and the greens and dressing complemented it very... More

I chose this place for dinner based on the tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. There were three of us in total who ordered a different fresh caught fish. Each of the fish were tasty and freshly cooked. I found the serving sizes to be just right. Out of the side dishes we ordered (fries, sweet potato fries, broccoli,... More

Had a quick lunch and had to try the lobster roll. On a quest to find the best in the city. I rate it better than legal. Bigger bun, toasted, and more lobster with a little lettuce. Service was ok given the busy lunch rush, and I'm glad I made reservation. I think there may be a better lobster roll... More

Ate here on a Wednesday night. Had the lobster cocktail and the blackened swordfish. Both were very fresh and prepared very well but certainly nothing extra special. Corn pudding side dish was actually the best thing I ate. Hand cut fries were disappointing. My guest had the lobster fra diavolo and said it was pretty bland despite the fact that... More
