Service is wonderful and the food is delightful. There is a large selection of wine available; you can order by the glass but the selection is smaller. Also available is mixed drinks, the sangrias have changed in recipe recently so I don't recommend getting those. Not a large raw bar but the... read more

Whilst on holiday in Boston we visited the Atlantic Fish Co for brunch and on another occasion for lunch. Brunch was pancakes with fruit and freshly squeezed orange juice. They didn't have strawberries on pancakes on the menu but I asked for it and they said that would not be a problem, it was yummy! Lunch was even better, the... More

We enjoyed our meal here, service was great, food was yummy and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio. Absolutely loved the bacon wrapped scallops, clam chowder and the shrimp/scallop risotto was amazing! One of my favourite meals this trip. Key lime pie was a yummy dessert too. Not a cheap dinner, but worth it for some yummy seafood in... More

We had early reservations, and it was still busy! Almost everything we ordered was amazing. The winners were the clam chowder and the cioppino - both were true standouts! Delicious, perfectly prepared, and promptly served. I would skip the sesame tuna... It just wasn't as special. Enjoy the sangria too!

We tried out a few of their dishes (had both lunch one day and dinner another). This is one of the better seafood restaurants I've been to. A bit on the pricey side but well worth the cost.

The location is great right on Boylston St. The blackened swordfish was excellent but the vegetables were inedible, I told the waitstaff but was ignored.

We lucked into two seats at the bar avoiding a long wait for a table on our first night in Boston--a Friday. We arrived early and the restaurant was already packed. Bartender was friendly and efficient. Menu is extensive and replete with fresh seafood choices cooked to your own taste. Husband really liked the on-draught IPA selections. The single malt... More

Delicious clam chowder and lobster roll. A little on the pricey side but very enjoyable nonetheless.

Had lunch here with a colleague. It was during the heavy snows so no problem getting a table. Friendly staff and a really nice menu. Chefs that know how to cook fish. Really enjoyed it
