“Fantastic Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The food was absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend the clam chowder and scallops. The service was outstanding! Fair warning, make reservations, otherwise you'll be waiting for at least one hour like we did. It was very much worth the wait!

“Excellent Meal and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

My wife and I walked around the Back Bay area and ate an early dinner in the bar at the Atlantic Fish Company. The service was great and the food was excellent. My wife had the seared Halibut and I had the pasta with lobster. Had read great reviews on Tripadvisor for this restaurant so all I can do is add one more glowing review.

“heavenly lobsters and new england clam chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

a great place to dine after a great day at Wrentham premium outlet. The new england lobster feast seved with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn on the cob, and potatoes serves two was simply awesome. There'salso a wide selection of wine to go with the mains. You can park along the street leading to the restaurant, but the wait can be long if you have not make your bookings. Service is sttentive and speedy.

“Fish and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant on 2 occasions during a recent visit to Boston, at lunch and dinner. If fish is your thing, then this is the place for you. The chowder is outstanding, rich but not over heavy and the scallops wrapped in bacon are definitely a moresome dish. The mains are substantial, tasty and full of flavour. While this restaurant may not be the cheapest place to eat, you gain in fresh produce, excellent service and a busy buzzing restaurant.

“A Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I've reviewed this restaurant before, but here's a follow up from our visit last week...it's still GREAT!

We stopped in for a lite lunch after visiting the site of the marathon bombing memorial and donating to OneBoston fund. Super service, nice salads and a huge shrimp cocktail. It's fun to see a place operating on all cylinders.

A tip is to visit for lunch rather than dinner. The food is just as good, the prices are a bit lower, and you can linger without feeling rushed.
