WE loved the location on the water right next to a large free lot. We enjoyed huge lobster rolls that really filled us up. They offered a number of draft local craft beers and a full bar with an outdoor dining area. We did not try the sushi although they have a large sushi menu if you are so inclined.

We had a Groupon for Lat 43 and decided to use it on one of the hottest days of the year. We booked a table for a 2:00 pm lunch on a Saturday, arrived 1/2 early and were seated immediately. Our waiter was fastidious and his timing was spot on. He also let us know what type of fish the 'catch of the day' was and also let us know what dishes it was being served in. We both opted for the haddock fish and chips and were very satisfied with our choice. We had started with appetizers of mussels with leeks and fennel and also 1/2 dozen oysters. Both dishes were fabulous! A lovely ending was the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee - delicious! Except for the strain on the A/C with the above 90F temps outside, we had a delighful lunch and will give Lat 43 a thumbs up this go round.

My husband and I visited Latitude 43 for dinner. We arrived about 5:30 and asked for a table with a view. The hostess said, " I can seat you in the main dining room." Our two-top was tiny - smaller than most restaurant tables I think - and really close to others. The size of the table made it look crowded when the menu, bread and water were brought. Would there be room for food? We asked for a "view", but were seated one row in from the window.
The room was busy, but not full by any stretch. Having said that, it was quite noisy. Servers passed us by, never making eye contact or acknowledging our presence, taking care of customers around us. Ten minutes passed..then 20... all done. We got up and left. As we passed the front desk, we remarked to the hostess that we seemed to be invisible to her staff. She apologized and said she would send a server over right away. We told her not to bother.

Check the other reviews for a description of the esthetics, my focus is on service and food quality.

We ate at Lat 43 over the July 4th Holiday weekend. Considering the amount of people up and about we had a reasonable wait for a table which was totally expected. Our server (waitress) was incredibly responsive...exceeded our expectation. Our three menu choices included a haddock dinner, fish and chips (also haddock) and sword fish.

Fish and chips got a great review from one of the people in our party, my haddock dinner was fair with the asparagus cold and chewy, swordfish was overcooked with a very firm consistency.
According to our waitress swordfish was supposed to be one of their signature dishes. We don't share her view. Raw oyster appetizer was great.

Our experience was just OK...not sure we'd go back since they're other Gloucester restaurants to check out.

BTW...our waitress claims that sushi is very popular. Our observation of the number of diners eating sushi substantiates her claim. Not being too familiar with sushi I asked her where it came from since it appeared they were making it fresh at the sushi bar. She checked...told me it gets shipped in from Japan. Not sure of the significance of this relative to overall seafood freshness.

After being stuck in the traffice caused by the bridge opening we noticed Latitude 43 and decided it was time for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and the setting. Nice to look out at the harbor and all the boats. The interior is nicely decorated and has a sunken sushi bar in the middle of the floor. We had the usual lobster rolls and such which were all very nice. The sushi was also good. Give it a try.
