Excellent food in the expense account league. I don't drink and hubby had a cocktail. Once the waiter realized we weren't going to be big spenders in the alcohol department, I could see a change in his demeanor, as if "this ain't gonna amount to much of a tip so why bother?" Um, guy? Hubby WAS on an expense account... More

Just loved wearing the bib and getting stuck into the lobster diablo. My wife enjoyed the lobster ravioli and my daughter loved her blackened catfish. All cooked to perfection with excellent service and a great bottle of wine.

Read good reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it. It is better to book a table so as not to be disappointed. Food and service excellent. Lobster ravioli was to die for! Food so good went back two nights later and had another wonderful fish dinner!

Awesome meal and everyone's sea food was fresh and prepared perfectly. The clam chowder is phenomenal and the mint ice cream for dessert was a pleasant surprise. Worth every penny.

First of all, make a reservation early. We didn't, but we decided to try anyways. Luckily, we were able to be seated almost immediately outside. It was late October, so a bit chilly, but the heaters kept us warm enough. Service was a bit slow, but overall not a problem. Food was very good. We enjoyed our dinner and time... More

One of the best meals we've had! Tried the clam chowder -- it won best clam chowder in Boston and that sure was the case. For the meal, I had the Crab Crusted Haddock served with truffle salted potatoes, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, light cream sauce. It was wonderful!. For dessert, we shared key lime pie and peppermint ice cream pie.... More

We were suggested by one of our local friends that if we were looking for a good meal around Boylston street, we had to go to the Atlantic Fish Company. We spent the whole weekend working at the Hynes Convention Center and were finally ready for a good meal. I jumped on Trip Advisor and saw that this place was... More

This time we came for lunch ... clam chowder in the bread bowl is a meal in itself!! Caesar salad had a vinaigrette-like Caesar dressing rather than creamy. Fries are always cooked perfectly. However, one female server(who brought food, didn't take orders) seemed to have a cold and kept coughing into her (ungloved hands). Watching her, she just kept walking... More

This is a busy restaurant in the trendy up-market area of Boston, on Boylston Street. I am happy to report this is a place well worth seeking out if you are not on a budget. Our waitress had the typical Bostonian charm (I love this city); warm, friendly and eager to please. The food was superb! Try the Lobster Bisque... More

We had a very nice dinner with friends, and enjoyed the very tasty lobster roll, with homemade french fries, that were just perfectly fried! Staff was friendly and we had a wonderful time. We'll definitely come back when we'll return to Boston!
