This is a beautiful restaurant that should be avoided. The food was poorly prepared and the service was lacking. I should have looked at Trip Advisor before going as I now see that many people have had similar experiences. There are so many fine eateries...More

Almost every seafood restaurant in Boston does lobster and shrimp well. It is how they do the other seafood that sets them apart. Atlantic Fish Company has the best quality seared tuna I've ever experienced. The swordfish is solid although I prefer a more simple...More

We had the fried oysters appetizer. I’m from Louisiana and I’d say I know my oysters. These were perhaps the best fried oysters I have had. We also ordered the lobster roll, which was very good, and the house made lobster pesto pappardelle, which was...More

An excellent choice of fish, seafood and beef with tasty morsels usually with excellent service. The only negative is that it is packed and you often have to wait 30 minutes or more even with a reservation.

Very good food, nice waiter, waiting time was fair. Book a table on the edge of the restaurant not in the middle otherwise it is pretty noisy and no space between tables

Located in Boston’s Back Bay, Atlantic Fish Company has been serving the freshest catch since 1978. All selections are exquisitely presented by a knowledgeable and efficient service staff in Atlantic Fish Company’s wood-lined dining room or on the outdoor patio. A few favorites include the mouth-watering Lobster & Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese Omelet at brunch with the full lunch menu available; crab and lobster rolls at lunch; and the New England Lobster Feast or San Francisco Cioppino at dinner. Repeat guests enjoy experimenting with specials and kids can order from their own special menu. The balanced wine list highlights more than 255 bottles of white and red varietals from all over the world, earning Atlantic Fish Company the 2017 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Atlantic Fish Company has also received a variety of additional high-ranking awards and accolades from notable outlets such as Boston Magazine, Serious Eats, Zagat, and Thrillist. Valet is available in front of our sister restaurant, Abe & Louie’s, two doors down at 793 Boylston Street. We validate after 5 p.m. Monday – Friday (you must enter the garage after 5 p.m.) and all day on Saturday and Sunday for the Prudential Center North Garage for $14. The fixed rate is only valid for four hours. If you surpass the four hour time frame, you will be required to pay full price. Please present your parking ticket to your server.
