We had a truly fantastic meal here. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time (6:30) and were seated promptly. We had requested a booth when we made our reservation, and they accommodated our request. Service (by Jay) was prompt and friendly. The meal started off with the best bread we had in Boston. I always believe that if... More

I think what I did wrong was visit this place after I've been to Legal Harborside, therefore my expectation for the clam chowder was really high. The bread bowl had already absorbed at least a third of the soup that it made the bread soggy. It still tasted pretty good. The entrees though were really huge and very tasty! However,... More

Great place for excellent sea food. Waiters are helpful and well informed. Place fills up quickly and its not fun waiting outside in the cold for a table to open up but the staff give realistic estimate of wait times. We have been there twice and both the times did not have to wait long- less than 15 min or... More

The food is your typical American seafood. Served in a nice atmosphere and a great place to also grab a drink at the bar. The staff and servers are excellent the food is very good but pricey. I would definitely visit here again and enjoy the local fresh fish.

Had dinner here mid week with friends. Had to make reservations. We were seated in the front. Tables were packed together and it was pretty loud. There were booths in the back and a bar on the side. We had raw oysters which were very good. I had clam chowder and a lobster roll which were good. My friends had... More

Brought my family here for a dinner and the advanced arrangements were excellent a see had a party of 8. Sadly airline issues caused two to miss the dinner but the staff was super accommodating. The food was good and everyone enjoyed it but clearly it was not the "the best sea food ever"...

It started off really well. The appetizer was amazing - tuna tartare was outstanding! The service was slow - very slow and my salmon entree was WAY overcooked and kind of unspectacular. Very expensive for not such a good meal. I had heard great things about this place and expectations were not met.

Had the opportunity to eat at this wonderful restaurant while staying at the Marriott. The food was fantastic. It was a warm, sunny day in Boston, so we were seated just inside the open seating area and it was a perfect lunch. I had the crab melt, and my friend had the salad special (cod) and both meals were fantastic,... More

I look forward to going to Boston next month. The Atlantic Fish Company is my favorite restaurant. I love the lobster bisque and the steamed clams. Is fabulous and close by Marathon Sports where I buy my sneakers.

Every time we visit our son in Boston we eat here. It's a bit pricey and not easy to get a reservation, but the atmosphere and the food are worth it! Call ahead to book your reservations, we ate there on a Wednesday because Monday and Tuesday were booked!

Thank Holly K

Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
