Best Crab Cakes in Boston! – Atlantic Fish have the most wonderful Crab Cakes! I can't get enough of them and only wish I could eat out more often.
Beyond Yummy – I was in Boston with my boyfriend for Labor Day weekend and we had no dinner plans for our last night on Sunday. The concierge recommended Atlantic Fish and so we went in without a reservation.
We waited about 2 minutes and got a great table. The menu was a bit overwhelming because there was soooo much to chose from, but the food was great. I think I could have picked anything on the menu and liked it.
To start with we got shrimp (which were very fresh and pretty HUGE) and the Maine Crab & Artichoke Dip which was awesome. For dinner we split the Sea Bass which was very well prepared and cooked. It came with lobster pasta which was sooooo good.
I would definitely come back to Atlantic Fish and recommend it to anyone... the food was awesome and the service was really great :)
Great Seafood – I was in Boston this past week for work. One night we ate at the Atlantic Fish Company. They were really busy but since we had made reservations we didn't have to wait too long. I was impressed with the restaurant, they were very welcoming and even though they were very busy, we still had great service. We ordered the Maine Crab & Artichoke Dip as a starter, which was very good. I also ordered a bowl of their Clam Chowder which was amazing and I got the Maine Lobster for my dinner, which was cooked to perfection. Overall my dining experience was excellent and I will definitely be coming back here next time I'm in Boston
awful food – Appetizers were unexceptional. Glass of $12 wine was sour. But the $32 halibut entree tasted like reconstituted fiberboard - dry, tough, crumbly and flavorless, nothing like what fresh fish tastes like. My wife's striped bass was seriously overcooked. We returned both; the second bass was edible but ordinary, but the second halibut was no different than the first. A spoiled dinner experience.
Our impression was that this is a tourist trap - we went based on the recommendation of hotel's concierge and the fact that it takes a couple hours to get a table.
AMAZING SEAFOOD!!! – Absolutely wonderful melt-in-your-mouth fish.
Great attentive service, the waiter was constantly
refilling our water glasses for instance. My only
complaint is that the strawberry shortcake was
lousy. But it's the best fish I've ever had, at a
very reasonable price.
AMAZING! – Best seafood in boston!! Great service, great restaurant, great location, love love love this place!!!
Boylston Street's bastion of seafood offers a handsome environment in which to enjoy its varied, satisfying menu of fresh catches. – The Scene
A favorite of locals and conventioneers (the Hynes is located down the street), this popular eatery serves as one of the Back Bay's most dependable spots for seafood. Warm woodwork and colorful murals provide the gaping interior with a calming, nautical feel. In the summer months, patrons abandon the dining room's welcoming booths for the sidewalk patio. Personable waiters recite the daily specials with great detail.
Seafood lovers of all stripes enjoy a far-reaching menu--the daily "Fresh List" features over a dozen varieties, including local catches (hefty New Bedford sea scallops) and flown-in cuts (Hawaiian Mahi Mahi). After a starter of velvety crab bisque, try the Maine lobster pot pie or one of the daily catches (served every way, from baked with olive oil and lemon to Cajun pan-blackened). In keeping with the local theme, finish with a slice of sinful Boston Crème Pie.
Great for a special occasion – My wife and I went back to Boston to visit friends, etc. and made a reservation at the Atlantic Fish Co. for our anniversary. Everything was great: service, food, atmosphere... I told them it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, so after a wonderful meal they brought us a free decadent chocolate raspberry cake. We even called the manager (Todd McCullough) over to tell him about our experience. We highly recommend AFC for any special occasion.
Yum, yep, yum – What can I say, this place does seafood well and our waitress was awesome. That's all I ask for in a restaurant, great food and a smile. Atlantic delivered. Was working in Boston in June and able to dine in this great establishment. I had a dip for an appetizer and loved it. The fresh bread as a great touch. My entree of swordfish was cooked excellent and my side of asparagus and spinach complemented my meal well. The east coast totally destroys the west coast in dining and Atlantic adds to that fact.
Very good Restaurant – We go to Atlantic Fish every once in a while and usually leave very satisfied. The food is great (I highly recommend the raw bar appetizer- $60 for 4 but we get it as a meal for 2). I usually make a reservation and get sat without a problem at the better tables. Service is prompt an courteous. The place is upscale and in a great location and I have never had problems with them food. If I ever want to get dressed up and go out to dinner this is the place I choose.
My only 2 issues are that I am pretty much always carded when we order wine. I'm 25 and usually there with parents and am the one doing the ordering, it just feels a little weird.. but I guess if it's their policy (just similar restaurants typically don't). We also once had a waiter who seemed to try to overcharge us, ordered a glass of wine and he insisted that he'd give us another one to try so we could chose which one to get, then charged us for both.. when he saw us looking at the check ran over and said he made a mistake and then only left the $13 one when I had originally asked for the $8.. felt a little cheated which was unexpected. I'm sure this can happen anywhere and we haven't seen this guy since. But had to write about it...
Aside from that I still love the restaurant so I'd definitely recommend it.
