“Favorite meal in Boston”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My husband and I popped in for brunch while on a weekend getaway to Boston. We were very impressed. The bread was incredible (and they use it both in the bread basket and to make the bread bowls for chowder). Matthew loved the chowder, and he said the lobster roll was good, even if it still doesn't edge out Red Hook Lobster Pound. I had the fried shrimp, and they were delicious. Tasted fresh, not frozen.

Service was prompt. We enjoyed being able to sit just inside to get the outside breeze (while hunkered in the shade). Highly recommend.

“Perfect Seafood”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It was a great dining experience - especially eating outside on a beautiful Boston evening. My swordfish was perfectly prepared and the wait staff was always on top of everything. It's a great place to dine.

“Dependable As Always, & For Lunch, Too”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Fifth time at Atlantic Fish in the last several years, but first time for lunch. My wife had a wonderful crab cake and I had an equally good fried oyster roll. Spring rolls with crab and corn to start, and two sides of spinach and grilled asparagus (gotta have those green veggies!). Wine adds to the price. Warning: not an inexpensive lunch, but, hey, we're in Boston for the day to see "Into the Woods" just across Copley Square at the Lyric Stage, so treat it like the special occasion it is. I picked Atlantic Fish because I knew the quality, it was easy to get to (walk up Boylston from the Copley stop), close to the theater, and took reservations (1:00 PM on a gorgeous summer Saturday, after all). Probably my favorite experience at this always dependable place (beats Legal Seafood handily).

“Fantastic Service!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Earliest seating was available was 10pm. My wife and I were in Boston on a quick vacation and we just had to eat here. The maitre'd jostled folks around at the bar to help us get seated...took all of 5 minutes. The raw seafood platter was amazing....well worth the price. If you're in Boston....you must dine here.

Thank Jason B
