The food here is amazing. The service was not but the manager made it right. Crab cakes and sea bass were some of the best I’ve ever had.

Was hoping to be wowed when we decided on Atlantic Fish. The colossal scallops were good, but overdone and tough. Still delicious, but didn't live up to what I had hoped. Service was great. Definitely worth a try if u are in town. I would...More

The decor is elegant but not stuffy. On their website they say they have a dress code, but there were guys in shorts and t-shirts. Mostly, however, people were dressed nicely. We had oysters that tasted like they had just been pulled out of the...More

Stopped for dinner. It was a pretty busy night, we were seated quickly, server was friendly. The oysters were extremely small. Maybe it was just their source but they were so small we couldn’t taste. The food was average. Not bad, just not great.

Nice atmosphere, good food in abundance. Even sharing a seafood pasta dish, two of us couldn't finish it. Our server was very nice and informative. Considering how busy they were, we had excellent service. Pricey, but worth it.
