Seafood
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 New England Lobster Feast ( 2 lb. Steamed lobster served with clam chowder, mussels, steamers, corn on the cob, and new potatoes). 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.

We had a wonderful time. Hostesses were accommodating. Chalice had the Crab Cakes and I had the Captain's Platter. Both excellent. We shared the Toasted Goat Cheese Salad and loved the variety of flavors. We spent far less than what we thought we would. This meal made our three days in Boston an unforgettable trip.

Our business takes us here but once a year. Atlantic Fish Co always comes through. Appetizer tartare- fab, Chilean Sea bass - awesome Drinks - great & strong, waitress really good, attentive and smooth. Attention to detail fantastic. No photos because we were too buisy eating to remember to take any.

Love Atlantic Fish - consistently delicious and a little more upscale than Legal Seafoods. I was a little disappointed that we missed "halibut season" by a few days, but otherwise had a great time. My only complaint is that the bathrooms are downstairs. Not sure what you do if you cannot walk the stairs! We had a great server who was professional and attentive, but not intrusive. Perfect.

A night to remember!

We were celebrating a birthday and a night at the Symphony with our very best friends. The only way to make it better was to start with dinner at The Atlantic Fish Company. Our Server Carla was so pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive that it was as if we were her only customers. Her understanding of the menu offerings and wine pairings was spot on. The support staff matched Carla’s attentiveness and dedication to customer satisfaction. The food was outstanding. The Mediterranean Swordfish, Shrimp Scampi, Seafood Fra Diavolo and Lobster Ravioli were beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and enjoyed with dessert for almost two hours. A perfect start to a memorable evening in Boston.

Delicious, fresh seafood! We enjoyed Chilean sea bass, lobster rolls and swordfish. Great drinks as well. The fried calamari appetizer was the only (slight) disappointment - it felt heavy instead of light and crisp. Other than that it was a truly excellent meal.

The reviews of this place caused us to go here to eat. I ordered the lobster bisque soup. It was creamy, a little spicy, and had good sized chunks of lobster in it.

I ordered the Lobster Roll. I expected warm lobster drizzled in hot butter on a roll. There was plenty of lobster meat in the large sized roll. The disappointing part was that the lobster was served chilled with just lemon drizzled on top. Our server didn’t ask me how I wanted it made, so I’m assuming all lobster rolls are served this way. There was too much bread in the size of the roll, and when I got down to the last bite, there was a tiny bit of cole slaw in the sandwich. I’m guessing it was supposed to be distributed evenly across the roll, or that was an entirely a mistake.

I ordered the creme brûlée for dessert! It was huge! Large enough to be split between two people. That was perfect! Good consistency, glazed sugar top coat with raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries! I highly recommend this!

I would go back here again. I just wouldn’t order the lobster roll. Our server was friendly. He didn’t try to rush our meal and we were able to enjoy our company.

Make a reservation, then you won’t have to wait a long time to eat!

This is by far the #1 seafood restaurant in Boston!!! The seafood from New England Clam Chowder, Lobster Salad, … all the way to Maine Lobster... are second to none for Boston. On top of the food, service is excellent, you have servers working together to make sure used dishes are removed so the table is not cluttered. The atmosphere is very lively and upbeat. The only thing is that I wish the restaurant is bigger... as Atlantic Fish is always FULL!!! Must reserve early to get a table. BTW, the valet parking also works well. Please keep up the good work!

The service was great, I asked on opentable reservation to put flowers on my table, since it was my Anniversary, it wasn't done. The food was good, but on expensive side. Overall I would go back but on a special occasion, since its pricey.

Very nice restaurant, bustling on a Saturday evening. Food was excellent, a little pricey but that’s to be expected at a place like this. Would definitely come back. We made a reservation in advance and still waited 10-15 min to be seated though.

Went for my lady's birthday dinner - food was awesome and our server was super nice. Mussels were rockin. She had filet w/ lobster tail and I had pan-seared tuna from the "fresh catch" part of the menu. Mashed potatoes were really good too! I left a note on opentable that it was her birthday and I wasn't sure anything would happen... Sure enough our server came with a small dessert with a candle in it - no cheesy song thank goodness :) Would definitely go back!

We were greeted promptly, had our reservation , with a request for a birthday celebration. Our server, Morgan, was fantastic. She was very attentive, didn't rush us, and came out with 2 great desserts for the table. Valet parking was so convenient. We definitely will come back soon. Food was VERY good. So impressed with the service, including the sommelier. Thank you Morgan for making this a fun evening.
