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.

Everything we ordered for dinner was amazing. The chowder, crab cakes, halibut and lobster ravioli - cooked to perfection. The wine list was comprehensive. Service was first class. No complaints. If you're willing to pay $150 for two, make a reservation. Highly recommended.

Recommended to us by staff in a local store and we were very pleased. Great service, and pretty presentation. Salads were delicious and dessert enough for 4 to share. Will go again!

Had lunch here while in the city. Was looking to have a great lunch but turned out to be just a good lunch. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. The patio was full outside so we got a window seat to people watch. The chowder was very good and tasted great. Had the fish sandwich, a little messy because it was grilled and fell apart.The fries with the sandwich were very small and over cooked. Salmon salad was just average and a small piece of fish. They were serving lots of lobster dishes and that looked very good. Good lunch or dinner choice if you are in the city.

We ordered and split an appetizer of grilled scallops served as a salad. The portion is huge, so it's best if you split this. The scallops were perfectly grilled and tender, among the best we ever had. We also ordered sea bass and their version of a lobster roll. The lobster roll, served cold, was overstuffed with fresh lobster chunks- delicious! The sea bass was cooked perfectly, was fresh, but could have used a bit more flavor. Our dessert was served with a scroll saying "Happy Anniversary", a nice touch. Although the restaurant was crowded that night, service was excellent. We'll be sure to return!

So it might have lots of tourists, but so what! Locales love it and spread the word with those of us that arrive in their beautiful city.
Inviting interior that resembles the old classy places near The White House in DC. Menu has a wide selection but we wanted "lobster something". While I ordered their
"small lobster", I had plenty to share. Delicious, fresh, and I went the lazy route and they pulled it all out for me in advance. Friend had an excellent sea bass with lobster pasta and it too was delicious.
This is another MUST DO restaurant for fresh fish lovers!
