Don't know what's more disappointing: the bland food or the obnoxious service! This is the Upper East Side! Not snootyville! No reason for a place to act like they're too good for customers.

I came here for restaurant week with my bf. The place was packed! I ordered off the restaurant week menu and it was pretty good: arugula salad with parmesean cheese, walnuts, cherries with a red wine vinegrette...the flavors did an excellent job @ complementing one another. My swordfish was cooked just right and was really good. My bf did not order off the restaurant week menu but got the teriyaki sea bass with vegetable soba noodles, recommended highly by our waitress....the sea bass was cooked to perfection and my bf thoroughly enjoyed it. The waitress told us the sea bass was one of the most popular dishes and I can see why. Service was very good and we were not rushed out even though the place was so full. Would def come back to this place.

Apparently this used to be much better. My wife and I had our first date here, so it has some sentimental charm for me. That said, it's still a top quality seafood place. The less fancy the better for me. Sushi is fresh, Oysters are great, shrimps are plump and juicy. Once you start getting things with multiple ingredients instead of simple fresh seafood, you're probably going to be led astray. I've had some great meals and a few clunkers. The crab cakes are fantastic. Simple sushi a la carte is a no-brainer. Oysters don't disappoint and seafood with rice and light herbs is always great. Had some nicely cooked tuna once slathered in some weird oil sauce which messed it up, but that's the kind of stuff to avoid. Go and have a lobster. Hard to screw that up! Recommended!

This restaurant is coasting on its past. The prices have gone up considerably & the portions have been reduced even further. The food, while certainly edible, is boring & bland & very predictible. There's nothing innovative about the place. I used to be a regular but there are other restaurants FAR better.

We've go to Atlantic Grill several times a year, usually on Saturdays for bruch/lunch. The food is consistantly good and the wait staff is always attentive. One of my favorite Mahattan restaurants.

this place is always delivers a quality seafood meal for a reasaonable price. the menu always has plenty of options on top of the specials and at the $26 range you really can't complain. service is yet to be a problem, aside from usually having to wait 10-15 minutes later than your reservation is for, but in NYC that's normal at most places. one thing to bear in minds is the house white, pinot grigio they charge $8 /glass can be bought in a liquor store for $6 or $7/bottle. But if you're looking for a good seafood place where with a bottle of wine you'll be well under $200/couple then look no further

I took my wife here for her birthday. She had the lobster and I had shrimp/scallop entree. While the lobster and scallops were tasty, the shrimp were not. They were overseasoned and not worth the $25 I spent for the entree. Furthermore, the side dish was a mushroom couscous (same thing came with the lobster) that was bland and hardly what I would expect for the price. It is a very pleasant spot, particularly at the outdoor tables but my $175, including tip, could have bought more somewhere else I am sure.
