We asked the concierge for a recommended place to have Lobster in Boston. He recommended the Atlantic Fish Company as it was within walking distance of the hotel and in his opinion we could travel further and not get better. The general selection and standard of the Seaford was good. It was not the cheapest place in Boston but I... More

I have been to this restaurant several times for business dinners. This last time was on the spur of the moment, without a reservation. We had a long wait and settled at the bar. Food is reliably good but not great. Vegetarian sides seem limited and uncreative. Wine list is decent.

Everything from the raw bar to fish and chips was amazing! Portions were perfect and the wait staff was knowledgeable about wine pairings, food recommendations, etc. Money and time well spent!

Dined here twice in a week on recommendation of my wife and daughter who had been here before. My daughter is studying in Boston. All dishes were excellent, service unobtrusively attentive.

Don't get me wrong, we had a lovely meal here and it would have rated 5 but on our travels we visited other restaurants and had much nicer tasting seafood, and for a lot less money. But it was a lovely restaurant, a nice setting, the food was good (my husband had the lobster stew which was amazing), and being... More

After reading all the great reviews of this restaurant, we were very disappointed with our experience there. We ordered a crab cake appetizer and two entrees. After waiting 30 minutes, a manager came out and said they were out of crab cakes and we had to wait until they had more. Really? That is like a steak house running out... More

Atlanta Fish Company was the last restaurant I had a meal at during my recent visit to Boston. As you may see from my previous reviews, I was on a shrimp & scallops quest. Atlantic Fish Co. did not disappoint, make reservations and do not hesitate to include the kids. My family and dined inside, but I could have enjoyed... More

Looking for a local seafood restaurant, we were not disappointed. The crab spring rolls were one of the best appetizers I've had in a long time. The San Francisco cioppino was also excellent. It was perfect for a business dinner, but would also be good for a group night out or even date night.

Food is good but for the money would expect better. With so many seafood restaurants in town thought this was suppose to be the best. Service was amazing but food was average. My girlfriends lobster was good but pretty hard to mess up lobster.

Took some colleagues here for a seafood meal while in Boston for work. We all loved it, everything is so fresh and unique. The clam chowder was delicious and the tuna tartar was very impressive. Our waiter was excellent. Great wine menu too, very extensive with some lovely reasonably priced options. Highly recommended for those looking for contemporary seafood.
