When we discovered (to my dismay) that Anthony's Pier 4 has closed, we came searching for a new great seafood restaurant in Boston. What a fantastic dinner! From the grilled swordfish to the clambake for two (highly recommend; and next time, I am ordering the tower!) to a delightful (recommended) bottle of Prosecco and a fantastic waiter... well, everything was...

We went to Atlantic Fish on the Boston Restaurant week as we had done the previous year. In 2013 we thought it was wonderful with Gazpacho, Salmon Kebab and a Flourless chocolate cake (Fondant). This year the menu was not memorable. there was a seafood salad and to be absolutely honest I cannot remember the other courses. This was such... More

THis is a restaurant that fully deserves its reputation for producing great food in a busy but enjoyable environment. The initial squeeze is worth it because you have chefs who know how to cook fish properly, and efficient unobtrusive servers. Wine is reasonably priced too which is a bonus

Visited Atlantic Fish Company on a Monday night, with a friend while our husbands were attending a conference dinner. We had a terrific waiter. We both had salmon, but prepared differently. The food is very good. You are able to see the kitchen through the huge glass windows at the rear of the restaurant. You should make reservations, the restaurant... More

Atlantic is the fish restaurant locals tend to prefer over the more famous one beginning with "L." The ingredients are always fresh and first-rate, the treatment creative, and the service excellent. There price/quality ratio also beats outs the competition. I have eaten at Atlantic for years now and can honestly say I've enjoyed every single meal. Long may it wave... More

This is a great choice for anyone looking for great chowder, fish, steak etc. There were 8 of us at the table, and we ordered everything from Lobster to salmon, and sea bass, and everything came out prepared perfectly and was very fresh.

Time and time again we dine here whether for lunch or dinner and every time they do not disappoint. The food is always fresh and very tasteful, while the atmosphere is terrific, indoors and outdoors.
