This restaurant has an impressive menu and decent food. I ate there 3 times in 3 days and tried many items on the menu. Overall, the restaurant is over rated; the best part is their warm bread. Sheraton Boston Hotel has better lobster rolls and...More

The seafood was fresh and very welll prepared. The clam chowder and the lobster are among the best I've tasted in Boston. The service is very professional, responsive and quick, and the ambience one of casual sophistication. I highly recommend this restaurant to seafood lovers.

Steamers were good, soup was good but that's the best I can say, service while very friendly was lacking in every way. No fork, no spoon, wine was late coming. Not sure I would go back there are better options.

Atmosphere is precisely what one should expect from a top seafood restaurant. Servers are experienced, and food is high quality.

Located in Boston’s Back Bay, Atlantic Fish Company has been serving the freshest catch since 1978. All selections are exquisitely presented by a knowledgeable and efficient service staff in Atlantic Fish Company’s wood-lined dining room or on the outdoor patio. A few favorites include the mouth-watering Lobster & Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese Omelet at brunch with the full lunch menu available; crab and lobster rolls at lunch; and the New England Lobster Feast or San Francisco Cioppino at dinner. Repeat guests enjoy experimenting with specials and kids can order from their own special menu. The balanced wine list highlights more than 255 bottles of white and red varietals from all over the world, earning Atlantic Fish Company the 2017 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Atlantic Fish Company has also received a variety of additional high-ranking awards and accolades from notable outlets such as Boston Magazine, Serious Eats, Zagat, and Thrillist. Valet is available in front of our sister restaurant, Abe & Louie’s, two doors down at 793 Boylston Street. We validate after 5 p.m. Monday – Friday (you must enter the garage after 5 p.m.) and all day on Saturday and Sunday for the Prudential Center North Garage for $14. The fixed rate is only valid for four hours. If you surpass the four hour time frame, you will be required to pay full price. Please present your parking ticket to your server.
