My husband and I tried for a table 6pm Friday evening (no reservation). They happily squeezed us in provided we could vacate table by 730 - no problem. Husband had the oysters - some of the best he has ever tasted. I had the crab spring rolls - beautiful and light. We had lobster roll and lobster pasta (spicy!) both... More

Good restaurant. We ordered four different entrees from the "fresh" list and all were very good. Good selection of beer. The service is good too.

This is a gem of a restaurant! Located in the heart of downtown Boston, it's perfect for couples and special dinners. We had a delicious lobster bisque and lobster ravioli for appetizer. Then for main we had the giant scallops and grilled cod. Both were beautifully cooked. Service was attentive despite the restaurant being packed and busy (good sign). Thanks... More

This was our 3rd time eating at the restaurant. It offers wonderful food, our favorite is surf and turf. Great wine list with good prices and products. Impeccable service even though the restaurant was very crowded.

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.
