Description: Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

“Lovely!”

Lovely dinner on the patio.... everything about the experience was pleasant... Great food and ambiance, excellent service. Fun neighborhood too in the Back Bay- lots of fun boutiques (and other restaurants with terraces)...would definitely go back!

“Great chowder and fish dishes in Boston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

1. Ambience - beautifully presented restaurant - wooden effect, clean and dimly lit with full view of the kitchen. Busy but not intrusive.
2. Food - as fish goes, very fresh and well prepared, super portion sizes but no compromise on quality. Chowder was one of the best I've had in Boston and lobster roll was very tasty.
3. Value - a little higher than average but not out of reach and lb for lb probably ends up cheaper than most places.
4. Service - exceptional and attentive. Special mention to Shawn C.

Would highly recommend to others.

“Great Food, and a Super Server!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Fresh oysters, lovely soft-shell crab for me; excellent chowder and perfect scallops for my partner - who's not happy? And a special thanks to our server Michelle who is one of my best in the last 3 years at least.

“Popular place for very good seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

You need reservations here as this place is very active. We waited a few minutes at the bar for our window table. I went for the lobster which was taken out of the shell for me, prepared simply and served with the classic drawn butter, corn and boiled potatoes. Just perfect. I also had the clam chowder for a classic Boston experience. The service was attentive but not overbearing. I will repeat my next time in town.
