Let me start by saying I live in Dubai which is a great foodie city. Atlantic fish has great service, great menu and pretty good drinks. We were very happy with it all, from the prompt seating to delivery of our order. And to top it off, a great feel good atmosphere.

Not very impressed with the food for the amount it cost. The service was great though. Nice atmosphere. The lobster dinner was good. Overall I was disappointed unfortunately. Food just wasn't good enough.

I felt like I was at an upscale yacht club by the ocean when in Atlantic Fish Company. The food, decor, and service all attested to that. The bread was delicious, and everyone enjoyed the appetizers (I had the Lobster Crab Louie) and the main dishes as well. There is not much else to say but try it!

There are better restaurants for seafood in Boston, although it's not a bad option at all. Service is very average, takes a while to be waited on, even for a spoon. Nice atmosphere.

The restaurant offers a wide selection of fresh fish and shellfish dishes. For our appetizer we had grilled calamari and then the fish of the day with a choice of 2 sides from the menu. The portions were more than adequate and cooked to perfection. Well worth a visit.

We travel all over the world often and we love good restaurant. I research the restaurant and always find terrific restaurants. This is the second bad experience we have in over 12 years. Almost all the good restaurants I find are wonderful. We had friends come to Boston from Houston to experience Boston, NH and Maine. They arrived today and... More

As a Florida resident, I visit Boston rarely, but ate at Atlantic Fish in 2009 and returned this trip, Surprisingly for me, I had no memory of the restaurant or the food until I saw the outside of the restaurant. I then recalled a pleasant experience in 2009, and the food was excellent again on this visit. The fish &... More
