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 chowder because it was quickly absorbed by the bread. I ordered a grilled salmon but... 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 but it is quite large and a very good selection for an "unfussy" business dinner... More

I came late to dine with friends. Service was prompt and friendly. Because the kitchen was about to close I think that my scallops were a little underdone. However the chowder in a sourdough bowl was excellent. This is a bright cheerful restaurant.

Very good lobster salad on greens. The atmosphere is great and the menu is one of the best I've found in Boston. Convenient location to shopping too!

We had a lunch today but clam chowder did not taste that good. Lobster roll was very disappointing. it was... More

Delicious place for some Boston award winning chowder and fresh oysters. I also had the fish and chips and the cod was very fresh. After thoroughly enjoying our meal we sampled the peppermint ice cream pie with fresh whipped cream...just saying it makes me drool! Truly a five star experience had with reasonable prices. Enjoy and if your not a... More

We has reservations for 7:15 and we were seated promptly and it only gets better. Glen was our waiter and he was helpful and attentive throughout our meal.The raw oysters, steamers and lobsters were delicious and prepared and served perfectly. This was our last dinner in Boston and was a a wonderful way to end the trip! Highly recommended!!!!

This is Boston and seafood, right? How can they not have a clue. Granted, this was a private group, but no one had a good meal. I had: Crab cakes (sic, there was just one) - mostly filler and not fresh tasting. Clam chowder - mostly cream and the few clams were overlooked, tough and chewy. Lobster ravioli- continuing a...

We spent our last night in Boston at this place. Food was excellent and presentation was A-1, thanks to our server, Timothy. He was very knowledgeable with the food choices. We have a wonderful meal and a great time.

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.
