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.

“Great Fresh Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had a very good meal at Atlantic Dish Company. We started with a nice selection Raw oysters which were very good. We enjoyed fresh fish as our main course, it was wonderfully prepared. The restaurant was busy, and a bit noisy, we had a table in the back which allowed for pleasant conversation. Would definitely return to Atlantic Fish Company.

“Best Seafood Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I had the San Francisco Cioppino which was excellent value. Loaded with all kinds of seafood with large chunks of sword fish, scallops, clams, prawns, mussels, lobster and crab in a delicious saffron broth. My wife had lobster. I also had to have a cup of their award winning clam chowder. I would highly recommend this place to anybody going to Boston who wants fresh seafood in a fine dining establishment

“Gracious Staff, Yummy Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The day was sunny and crisp. The greeting at the reception was enthusiastic and friendly. We had made a request for a window table and to our delight they had reserved one for us. This started the luncheon on an upbeat note and things only got better.

Our waiter Jared was cordial and efficient and provided excellent service.

We shared the Spring Rolls, then I had the Lemon Sole and my husband had the Seafood Chowder and the food was delicious. The portions generous. It was a wonderful afternoon.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Few restaurants compare to Atlantic Fish Company. On a packed Friday night, we have no wait with a prior reservation (make a reservation!). Service started a bit slow, but immediately picked up. Champagne was delivered in a bucket stand and remained ice cold. Our glasses were never empty. Calamari appetizer was fantastic. The crab stuffed lobster was top notch and well worth the (reasonable) price. The couple joining us each had the cioppino and it looked amazing!

Can't recommend this place enough for a 5 star dining experience!

“Again, one of the best dinner of the year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Every time I travel to Boston I try to get dinner at least once in Atlantic Fish. It is always as good as I remember. Food is great, service is superb, and prices are more than fair. Just go and enjoy.
