Atlantic Fish Ratings and Reviews
We were there for Sunday brunch prior to Red Sox game....were there ten minutes after it opened, with reservations....hardly anyone in place....host/hostess placed us in booth closest to door and adjacent to hosting station....????when place was empty.....felt like they knew we weren't regulars.....snobbish .....
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Atlantic Fish and would go back. Our raw oysters for an appetizer were delicious. The chowder was good, not great. Both the white clam sauce and fried seafood platter were very good, but the shrimp scampi wasn't. Very little flavor. Better to get it at an Italian restaurant, I suppose. My husband was very disappointed with the beer menu. Terrible selection & no craft beers. Don't go if you want good beer. I ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and upgraded to the 9 oz when offered. Had a second glass when the meal came. Imagine my surprise when the bill came and I noticed that each glass cost $22. Yes, $44 for 2 glasses of wine! Had I known how much it was I would have ordered a bottle of something more reasonably priced. It was very good wine, but far too expensive. The waiter should have told us the price when offering the upgrade. That was a huge rip off and I left feeling like I had been scammed.
Had a really wonderful meal recently with two friends whom I hadn't seen in some time. Although it's loud because of the size and high ceilings, the rest of our time there was great. All three meals (salmon, haddock and swordfish) were cooked to perfection. Appetizers were terrific too. Except for the specials, side dishes are a la carte, so be aware because this is not a restaurant where you're going to get away cheaply at all. But I'd definitely go back in a heartbeat, just not every week.
Ordered steamed lobster and my wife and I were disappointed. Lobster was somewhat tough and had no taste. The shell looked like the lobster was broiled not steamed. We showed this to the manager on call that night. She apologized for the lobster and surprisingly adjusted our bill. If you like steamed clams, their's were the best we've had in a long time.
We were very disappointed. I had pan seared cod that was dry and overcooked. My Brussel sprouts were under cooked and my sautéed spinach was blah and had no flavor.
My husband has pan seared sscallops. There were 5 small scallops and they were also overcooked and dry. We each one drink and felt for the price $100.00, it was way over priced and overrated. Don't waste your $$$
Went for lunch with my two teens. In town touring colleges. They ordered the lobster roll, they said it was the best they ever had! Overflowing with lobster. I had the lazy lobster (midwestern born), was really good. Will definitely be back next trip to Boston!
Well, it was very noisy, to where we had a hard time having a conversation. The service was great. Bobby was awesome. I had the fish stew, which had no flavor, and some of the pieces of white fish had a grey appearance to them, so it killed my appetite. I also had the seared tuna, which was cooked to my liking, but the entire meal was cold, which I knew by the veggies that accompanied the fish. My daughter had the clam chowder and lobster ravioli, which she really enjoyed.
I brought a group here for a business dinner. Our server was great with the group and all the various personalities and special needs. Everyone loved their food except me. I'm not a fish eater and didn't feel like wrestling with a lobster so kept it simple with a lobster roll. It was actually the worst lobster roll I've ever had so I would definitely not recommend it here. Considering the prices I would have expected more lobster for one. The roll was very dense and even hard to bit into. There was way too much bread for the lobster. There's a reason why they are usually on hot dog role type bread. I ended up just basically eating the lobster out of the roll with my fork. Most of the lobster was very overcooked and dry except for the last big piece that was very undercooked and kind of freaked me out. They give you a ton of fries but they were super salty and I'd have preferred lobster to fries.
To be fair, like I said, everyone else seemed to love their food. The scallops which were highly recommended were a hit. Some crab crusted fish was enjoyed by one person. As was the swordfish and goat cheese salad. I think the clam chowder is better at Legal's.
Oh, and we were all pretty skeptical of the corn pudding but it was amazing.
And while I didn't love my meal, the bread we got when we sat down was amazing and my key lime pie was amazing. THe rest of the table enjoyed the peppermint pie and creme brulee.
In general, it is a really good restaurant and a great place for a business dinner, especially if you have various food requirements. This was a difficult group in that way and I was able to satisfy everyone here. I just wouldn't recommend the lobster roll.
We got a seating near the kitchen window which allow to see the preparation of the plates . The service was very fast which was very appreciated after a long day visiting te city .
Restaurant fits for family visiting the city and it was the best Boston lobster of the trip
Very disappointed with this place. I've had good meals at Abe & Louie's next door and thought this would be a good spot for some seafood. Started the night out getting served a chipped wine glass, a dirty appetizer plate, and a really bad margarita that had to get re-made. We ordered the tuna tartare to start and the tuna steak and chilean sea bass for entree's. The tuna tartare was very average and nothing special. The sea bass was overcooked, fishy tasting, and without any flavor or seasoning. I should have known, but this place felt like a tourist trap bringing in vacationers for a sub-par meal in a very nice location. With so many good spots in the area we were frustrated to have chosen this one. On the positive side, the manager recognized our disappointment and very kindly offered to comp our meal. Maybe their chef didn't show up to work on Friday night? Who knows, but I wouldn't chance it again and would rather go to the capital grille or even Abe & Louie's next door.
I only tried Rhode Island style calimari which were delicious and the flourless chocolate cake. I craved the calimari for days after leaving Boston: lightly breaded and not deep fried, with pepperocinis and parmesan. Heaven. Probably the best flourless chocolate cake I tasted (and I'm not a fan). Great service too.
A very mixed experience. We generally like Atlantic Fish very much, and as Boston residents and "preferred guests" of the Back Bay Restaurant Group, we patronize both AF and Joe's American Bar and Grill (although we rarely bother to apply for the "reward" points). However, as "preferred members" we recently received an email from AF to "experience their three-course Summertime Menu for a limited time priced at just $35 per person." The ONLY restriction included with the email, as well as on their website, was "offer valid until 9/4/17, cannot be combined,..." My wife and I had a 6:00 PM dinner reservation. However, when we tried to order the "Summertime Menu" special, we were informed by the waiter that was only available at lunch time. When I pointed out (and showed him on my iPhone) that the issued email advertisement and their web menu contained no such restriction, the waiter offered no apology, just repeated that the item was a lunch special only, but everything is otherwise available on the (a-la- carte) dinner menu (but not for the same total price). To make a long story short, we otherwise enjoyed our (non summer menu special) dinners (I had ciopinno and my wife the fresh catch grilled salmon). The food was very good, although the waiter who generally was attentive, seemed to have a female problem as he was less than responsive to my wife's requests on a number of occasions. Had to be reminded by me several times. As for the bad taste left to us by our experience at AF, a day ago I received a request for review of our experience directly from AF, wherein I responded relating essentially the same disappointment with their misleading ad, but have not received any reply. We are now much less impressed with Atlantic Fish than We were before.
