We went here to celebrate my birthday while in Boston. The food, service and experience is top notch! I splurged on the lobster special with no regrets! Everyone enjoyed their entrees and my daughter earned me a free birthday treat for answering a fun trivia question! The oysters are the best I have had in awhile. Lovely wine list. Nice... More

Fam took me for my birthday dinner while we were in Boston last week. We did this a couple years ago when my daughter was starting her freshman year. I must say, it was worth every penny! Not cheap, but the quality of the food and impeccable service made it a value experience. Our waiter, initially from southern Cal, was... More

The dinner is a bit on the pricey side for me but the lunch and brunch are well worth it. The fish n' chips are the best I've had in a long while. Great selection and tastes fresh

Our family ate a late lunch at this lovely restaurant. We ate inside in the beautiful cherry paneled room. The service was outstanding. our waiter was attentive and answered our every question with patients and a smile. I had the crab cakes and they were very good but not the best I ever had. I would order them again. The... More

Atlantic Fish is a requirement when we visit Boston and our latest lunch more than met our expectations. Outstanding food. Lobster roll - check, perfectly cooked cod- check, and a fine selection of Chardonnays on the wine list -as always. And from the moment we arrived, every staff person from the hostess, to the busboy, the waiter (awesome) and the... More

I'm not sure where to begin. I really wanted to like this place because of all the best reviews. We drove from Jersey to Boston and figured we couldn't leave without having some New England lobster. I should have known better after drinking that horrible tap water. Clam chowder tasted more like watered down celery chowder. Ordered the lobster which... More

This restaurant offered many good seafood choices. I enjoyed my crab crusted haddock and my husband had sea bass with lobster ravioli that he enjoyed. Service was good, nice atmosphere and took us right on time for our reservations. My only complaint was wine prices by the glass or bottle were very high

Went for dinner before attending If/Then at the Paramount Theater. Super fresh seafood and a great selection. Had the sea bass that was so moist and perfectly seared. Served with delicious lobster ravioli in a cream sauce.Shellfish tower that was incredibly fresh. Actually tried an after dinner sampling of cognacs that was a wonderful surprise along with a creme brulee.... More

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.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
