This is pretty much what you would expect from a chain. It is consistently decent but never outstanding.

After a long flight where we no longer get a meal, I was starving when I checked into my hotel. My cab driver suggested the naked fish and after a 5.5 hour trip, why not?! The food was fresh and amazing! They have an extensive bar, any bar that carries my favorite rum always wins points. Food and drinks are... More

I was not impressed on my last visit to Naked Fish. My starter of crab cakes was served quite cool in temperature so I had to send them back, then afterwards the side (plantains) on my main course were also served cold. This happening once was bad enough but twice on the same meal is ridiculous. This shows a lack... More

This is on the Tottel Pond road, Waltham, MA very close to the Interstate 95. The restaurant offers a wide choice of seafood ranging from salads to starters and main course. Tried tuna salad, fried calamari, sandwich and old fashioned fish and chips. Was told by a colleague that oyster soup was good. The service is fast and the quantity... More

The fish was good. Everyone liked the food. Our problem was with the service. We had to ask for almost everything. It took 45 mins for our food to come out. It took 20 mins to get our drinks. Our server seemed like college age seasonal help and she didn't care much about us as patrons.

We live near Naked Fish and go there frequently. The place is comfortable and welcoming and the Cuban-inspired dishes -- especially the seafood -- is delicious! Last time we went we shared a great fried calamari appetizer, which was followed by a grilled seafood salad with shrimp, scallops, and calamari. Healthy and delicious!

What a great restaurant. Wished we found it earlier. The paella valencia had a lot of seafood and was delicious. The latin style ribs were very good too. The lobster roll sandwich was not bad for $19. Would definitely come back when we are back in the area!

After along road trip in the rain from Cleveland we three were ready for some good food and friendly atmosphere. The Naked Fish, with which we were unfamiliar, popped up on our route on Trip Advisor so we plugged it into the gps, and were glad we did; The gluten free scallop dish was succulent as were the haddock entrees....

I have been to this location often due to business in Waltham. Usually, I enjoy my meal, but this time things did not work out well. The biggest disappointment was the NE clam chowder. None of us that ordered it thought it was good. There were hardly any clams and even the potatoes were not cooked properly. The seared tune... More
