Wish I had read the reviews... – I am in full agreement with other reviewers regarding the owner/manager and the service. I was told that my custom was not wanted. Hmmm, in these days of slowing discretionary spending, but I guess if you do not believe in word of mouth and those who are resources for recommendations to travelers to Cambridge then Atasca should not change a thing. But if you believe a dollar has power then I would rethink my new customer retention policy or perhaps lack thereof. But the food was tasty but then so are hundreds of other restaurants who like one to return. Service
Different twist – I went here expecting tapas like food, but everything is in larger plates. The fish and the chicken dishes are very good and very flavorful. The lines get long on the weekend though so reserve early - we had to wait an hour even though we had reservations!
7/27/04 – The grilled sardines appetizer were someone fishy as the dish was brought to the table. It looked like fried rather than grilled. The calamari appetizer in a terra cotta dish was devine. The halibut was over-cooked. The so-so dining experience was made up by a very friendly wait staff.
Disappointing – I ordered the chicken with mushrooms in port wine with risotto, and I was less than thrilled with what I got. The chicken and mushrooms were bland and tasteless, in addition to being very tough and hard to cut. The risotto turned out to be rice with beans, and the beans were hard (i.e., undercooked). I won't be going back there again.
simply wow – like a trip to Portugal. The sumptous flavors, colorful dishes, charming staff and reasonable prices make a wonderful evening out of just stopping by for dinner. Great Wines at great pricesAll thumbs up!
