Superb shrimp cocktail w/ large but not oversized or tough crustaceans & 2 sauces. Crab bisque a bit short on sherry flavor, & martini not cold enough. Broiled snapper very tasty but in my opinion slightly underdone. Great atmosphere & better than average service.

Great food and great service. They are able to run a very large restaurant without making it feel like a large restaurant.

Unfortunately, after ordering and waiting for about 45 minutes, we were told that the kitchen had run out of a few things, and to please place our order again. Not a big deal—it was a busy Friday night. Second time around, we were told that several of our second choices were unavailable as well. Finally, upon the arrival of of our food, my meal was not what I had ordered. At this point, we were ready to make the hour commute back home. We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday, so it was disappointing that the restaurant didn’t live up to the hype, as I was trying to make it a special night for him. I’d like to note that our server comped our appetizers, which was very kind, but for the amount of money that was spent, we left disappointed overall.

My husband and I were going to dinner for a special occasion. For starters, the valet service was VERY slow at getting cars moved through and so after waiting in a line at 5:15 PM, just to get the car parked, I got out in the road and made my way inside leaving my husband to wait so I could make our reservation. First of all, the restaurant wasn't maxed out inside- so I don't understand why they wanted to seat us in a "half booth, half table" for a special occasion and a reservation? Then our server came over FINALLY - "Anthony" and honestly, after we told him it was our first time visiting the place and that it was a special occasion, most places that are this expensive and have the reputation that they do, would go out of their way to explain the specials, make a lot of suggestions, bu we felt like we didn't have his full attention and while we were ordering, he was looking around. Also, he never offered a cocktail or anything- we asked for an appetizer- the calamari and it was "average" and nothing like the picture someone posted online...we also ordered 2 broiled seafood platters for $48 EACH that came with Salmon, 2 scallops, only 2 shrimp, and 2 sides which were vegetable medley and mashed potatoes. The Salmon was good but again, nothing extra special that would have made me come here instead of Longhorn or Ted's...the Shrimp was like rubber and WAY OVERCOOKED- again not "special", the scallops and lump crabcake were AMAZING just wish there were more since they were really the only DELICIOUS part of the meal- The vegetables were WAY overcooked and soft. At restaurants like these, usually the server will bring out another glass of tea before you even finish the other. Nope. Empty for a good while TWICE. Also, the server forgot to bring the cocktail sauce and hush puppies I had asked for when we ordered. Pappadeaux is hands down way more flavor and better service- AND PRICES! We don't mind paying more at all but not $134 for this!

There are newer and flashier seafood restaurants, but we keep coming back to Atlanta Fish Market. The waitstaff makes you feel like a regular customer even if its your first time. Warm sourdough bread and butter shows up quickly so you can munch while you peruse the menu. We usually go for fried seafood, but on this visit, we tried the broiled seafood platter, shrimp cocktail, and wedge salad. Absolute heaven, with plenty to take home for lunch the next day. The kitchen knows how to cook seafood-just enough so its not raw but not so much that it gets that rubbery mouthfeel.
The main dining room can get noisy, so we usually ask for a booth in the side room. If its a nice evening, the rocking chairs in front provide a nice way to rest a spell before leaving.

Yes, I would recommend the venue but my concern was with reservation and time. I arrived at 6:21pm for 6:30pm reservation. I was not seated until 7:02pm (ticket stamped 6:59pm). Does it always take 40 minutes--or an extended period of time--to be seated? Thank you.

Atlanta Fish Market has the most beautiful fish around. Visible in an enclosed display case it is astounding. The multiple preparations never overpower the star. It was Mother’s Day and crowded but we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time and had a cocktail within 10. As expected on a packed day, it was a little loud but not unpleasant. This is the best fish restaurant in Atlanta with very reasonable price. I enthusiastically recommend.

The only negative to the whole experience was the waiter was sweating so bad that you could see the sweat dripping off his glasses. A huge concern was it may drip onto our food. Luckily for us another person brought us our food and bread. Otherwise we would have requested a manager. The restaurant's temperature was approximately cool as it should be.

We had reservations at 6:45 pm and at about 7:15 we decided to just wait at the bar. We told the hostess and she agreed to let us know when our table would be available but we ended up having dinner at the bar and no one ever came. Other than that the food was great and the bar service was excellent!!!

Went for my wife’s birthday celebration. Only complaint is I rely on the menus that are online. The menu
For Atlanta Fish Market online had two of our favorite items. My wife loves live whole Dungeness Crab and I have been looking for grilled octopus. When we arrived I went to order for my wife and found out they didn’t have the crab and hadn’t this year. So I ordered the King crab legs which were delicious. I then went to order my octopus, and they had not had this for quite awhile.
I use the information these restaurants supply to open table to pick were I want to go.
Other than the above, it was a good noise experience and very crowded.

For the very high cost the food was just, okay, at best. We've been going there for special occasions for many years but will go elsewhere next time. I don't mind spending the money, but give me a fair value and don't let me feel I was ripped-off. P. Miller

We are regular customers of AFM. Always a nice evening out. This time however the service was not what we have come to expect. The starters arrived after the soups, we barely started with this when the entrees arrived. When I mentioned it to the server, his reply was sorry want me to take something back? Felt very much like we were being pushed hard to eat and leave.
It was a busy night, so I'm chalking it up to the pressure of business. Hopefully our next visit will include better timing and attitude of service.

The dish I ordered was misrepresented in terms of the size. It was a very small lobster but was described as a very large dish. It was the special Saturday night before Mother’s Day. It was not worth the money spent. I ordered the lobster dish and added a salad. Then I had to go back and order some gumbo. Not worth it.
