    Food was underwhelming for Bolyston street. While we enjoyed the oysters and calamari, the quality of pasta was quite poor. The vongole sauce was decent, but the pasta itself was not good…. Not al dente at all. We almost sent it back but wanted to leave early. The only redeeming aspect was Christopher, whose service was outstanding.

    A good place. Food is good .it would be nice to have more choices for the grilled fish. It seemed limited. But what we had was well prepared and fresh ( branzano and halibut). I liked the corn pudding and my husband liked the potatoes gratin. We both liked the Caesar salad and the martini, good service.I’d recommend if you are used to big city prices.

    We arrived at 4:30 on Sunday and were able to sit outside. Service was stellar and the food was as good as always. Even though the restaurant filled up, we were not rushed out . It was a lovely dinner with friends and we will go back again...

    Overall a good experience. Service was good and food was also good. We started with Grand mimosas which were very good. Clam chowder and scallops were tasty. Ahi tuna was overcooked and not seared as requested. This was unexpected since our waiter knew we expected it raw and seared. Overall a nice lunch but not exceptional.

    Had a late dinner with my adult son and 17 year-old daughter. We ordered littleneck clams for appetizer and the dish had 6 large clams with breadcrumbs and Parmesan and in a scampi sauce. It was not the appetizer I expected, as I thought it would be in a broth, and the clams were large. Overall the dish was not appetizing. Would not get again. My daughter ordered steamed lobster which was fine. Not sure if it was warm as I did not try it. I had the branzino - very meaty but a bit tasteless, and the spinach side tastes a bit smoked and bitter. My son loved his halibut. Overall- food was ok. Dessert was not great. We had creme brûlée and it had a very hard biscotti inside- didn’t make sense. I had one scoop of peppermint ice cream. Not sure I would go back. The waitress was very efficient and was diligent about pouring water in our glasses. But came to take our order when my son had gone to restroom, and then came back to get our order but didn’t ask if we had questions. Overall not a five star experience.

    Menu change was disappointing. My favorite dish was the Chilean Sea Bass with lobster ravioli. Had the Branzino with two sides. Wasn’t great. Won’t go back until menu changes back. I do understand inflation and need a to change due to cost. I would pay more more the old menu.

    I'd gone to Atlanta Fish for years but Covid hit... Not in Boston much so not much dining out in town. Nice to be back. Great hosts, servers, food, drink and atmosphere. It's nice if not critical to be able to carry on a conversation and they have plenty of quiet tables. Keep up the great work... PG

    Appetizers were both good and "meh". . .. the calamari did not taste fresh. tasted reheated... the carrots fritters were quite good .... mybfathers clam chowder had 3 clams in it. I brought it up to waiter and he went into kitchen and brought a small bowl loaded with class to refill what was left. At the price and scale of restaurant, I would expect better quality. these were disappointing. The saving grace for me was the Chilean sea bass. and the goat cheese salad. these dishes could not have been more perfect. I would return for these two items. Service was quite good. all but the deserts ce out in a timely manner. we finished our coffee by the time the deserts arrived. vagain, disappointing at these prices.
