The New England clam chowder here is becoming more and more famous, and it is paired with the tender Calamari. We had lobster rolls and Haddock for dinner, and we left full. Although it was crowded, the service was fast. Parking is difficult if you...look for your own on the street, so we did valet parking.More

Very popular place,definitely recommend reservations. We arrived at 9pm for our reservation and the place was still packed. We were taken care of by Tony. He was funny, charismatic and very attentive. We each started with their award winning clam Chowder; it was delicious, creamy...and the perfect blend of all the ingredients. Then we had the lobster crab Louie, yum!! That was delicious too, fresh, refreshing and the avocado with tomatoes really gave it beautiful combination of flavors. We shared the New England Cioppino. It was big enough to share and I’m glad we did because we were able to finish it and still room for a bite of dessert. That we could not finish. They gave healthy portions This place is a seafood lovers dream. So many great seafood options. Will definitely be returning when we come back to Boston!More

We went for lunch and sat outside on a sunny day. The ambiance inside is quite nice but the outside felt somehow more cozy. Service was prompt and good. The clam chowder in bread bowl was good. You can tell they use fresh produce. The...crab cake was pillowy and delicious. The baked oysters were delicious! They had a catch of the day Sole, served with beurre Blanc sauce which was nice too. I think if you are visiting, it's better to order more plates and share them rather than have one dish per person so you get to try more in one go. Portions are pretty generous and we shared 3 appetizers and 1 main between 2 and it was perfect portioning for lunch. It isn't cheap but the quality is there and the location is great too.More

My family and I were visiting Boston on a week-long trip to tour several colleges in the area. We had made reservations many days in advance to have dinner at Atlantic Fish Co on our last night. A few hours before our reservation, we received...an email that our reservation had been canceled. We called to get an explanation, but we reached their voicemail and never received a return call. Placing new last-minute reservations somewhere else was not how we wanted to spend our last afternoon in Boston.More

This place has a great atmosphere and a real buzz about it - modern and clean it certainly must be well subscribed to by visitors Service was excellent but food mediocre I’d say, scallops were over cooked and over seasoned with a strong mustard so...couldn’t really taste the delicate flavour Crab crusted haddock was ok but nothing special for $50 price tag - I wouldn’t go backMore

This spot represents the best of New England. I had the "Lobster Thermidor" and my guest had the "Lobster Risotto". The "Lobster Thermidor" had tender chunks of succulent lobster covered in a rich creamy sauce that did not overpower the lobster. The "Risotto" had fresh...chunks of lobster in a hearty sauce bursting wit flavor. The "Boston Cream" pie is a must! This is not the Boston Cream from the supermarket but a gourmet treat with light and fluffy cake sandwiched between a light cream with a fine chocolate icing. This was a great meal...left nothing to be desired. The service was attentive. A nice ambiance - modern nautical them. This place is classy but not stuffy!More

I vaguely remembered the great meal I had here 10+ years ago. So we went back for another round and BOY do we NOT regret it. What a great meal!! Classic restaurant. Nothing needs fixing. Same amazing service and meal that I remember from 10...years prior. Does that mean it's dated? Nope. Because good food and good service never goes out of style. Amazing food. Amazing service. I'm celiac gluten free and ate like a Queen without concerns. They were very allergy aware. We tried to pay with the code on the receipt, then it maybe didn't work, so we paid by card. Then realized both went thru when we checked later. Just a quick call to the restaurant and they fixed the issue easy peasy. Tip: just pay normal, and don't use the bar codes. I know this but my tech-loving husband couldn't stop himself. oi.More

Absolutely fine dining at fair market prices. The staff was brilliant, the food well prepared, and the atmosphere wonderful. There's not enough praise that I can heap on Atlantic Fish. We had the whole fish that came with sides topped with a fresh Guinness. Everything...was expertly prepared. Dessert was through the roof. Great restaurant, attentive staff.More

We’ve been here for many Christmas dinners. It’s always been excellent, but this year AF dropped the ball on food, not service. The bay scallop appetizer was disappointing. The delicious morsels were overwhelmed by the risotto with truffle oil. Think delicacy, folks - but it...wasn’t to be. Two of us ordered the tuna - rare - and at best it was medium. And no wasabi, and no ginger. Who does that? For the AF prices, they need to consistently knock it out of the park. Calamari and fritters were superb, but they didn’t compensate for the tuna and bay scallops.More

Expect to spend $100 per person for a nice meal and drinks at dinner. It is a crowded and lively environment in the upscale Back Bay district.
