I love seafood, so no trip to Boston would be complete without a lobster dinner... or three. While Legal Seafood seems to have cornered the market, and I did eat there twice, I also had two meals here since it was close to the convention center. I must say, I like it better here. Not that Legal isn't a good... More

We went on a Monday evening at 5:30 and walked right in to a table. We tried to make a reservation online 15 minutes earlier and the only available time was 9:15. The food was good ( we had the Cioppino, lobster feast, and crab haddock). Our server was excellent (Glen), and we would definitely return. We could walk from... More

We have yet to find a better seafood restaurant. Everything we have had on numerous trips has been fabulous. The lobster feast, with clan chowder and mussels is a great choice. Even though I don't like the idea of surf & turf, it did look great. The service has been prompt, attentive without being too attentive and the dining comfortable... More

We went to Atlantic Fish with family. Ambiance, food and service were all great. Don't know what else one would expect. Will surely go back.

Outstanding food...impeccable service. Salad was fresh and crisp. I had fried sole with gnocchi and vegetables which were delicious, fresh and perfectly presented. It was remarkably busy for a Monday night, which is a testament to the wonderful dining experience this restaurant provides.

I wanted my children to eat sea food, especially lobster while we are in Boston. And we ended up with the perfect location. It worths every penny we spend there.

My family and I visited for a Saturday lunch. We arrived at 12:15 and, surprisingly for such a popular location, there were a few empty tables available for immediate seating. We sat at a nice booth in the back part of the restaurant. A nice server, Ray, promptly took our drink orders told us the specials, and took the order... More

I know a good steak. I had the best filet I have ever had! The clam chowder was excellent. I would definitely order both again!

The staff was very friendly with me. I ate very well, as always. I liked very much the raw fish, always fresh!!!! Not to... More

One of the best meals I have had! From the grilled Chilean Sea Bass to the peppermint ice cream, everything about this meal was outstanding!
