This restaurant is beautiful inside and offers delicious food. It has a great scene and is right across from the Prudential Center. Great for lunch if you're shopping in the area. The service was good and we had a nice time.

We came for dinner and even though we had a 8:15pm reservation, we had to wait another 20mins because the owner gave a table to a family with a 8:30pm reservation first. The clam chowder in the bread bowl was nice but there wasn't sufficient...More

It's a good restaurant. Location is very central, close to Copley Square. Nice ambiance, service was great. Food was tasty. Dishes were not very original but the fish quality was great. It's a bit expensive but a nice option for good sea food.

I had dinner here with 3 colleagues and we all ended up getting the lobster rolls. Absolutely delicious and we were all very happy with this choice and the lovely sauvignon blanc we paired it with. The place seems like it can get quite busy...More

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.
