Seared tuna starter excellent, shrimp rice bowl good. Amongst the group all food was, fish stew is also very good. Service was ok but not great. It's a good chain with food as you would expect.

I always go to this place when in Waltham on business. The seared tuna sashimi starter is great. Nice atmosphere as well.

This was my first visit to this establishment and the food was great! The atmosphere was comfortable and friendly and so was the waitstaff. There is a great variety of food on the menu and would recommend to anyone who does like fish and seafood! They do have other things on The menu for people who are not fish fans.... More

I had been to a different Naked Fish years ago and remembered it fondly... but this time it didn't seem that great. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, but just wan't that impressed with the food. The margarita was good at least. We shared scallops with balsamic glaze for an appetizer. They were served on a bed of bland... More

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!
