SO DELICIOUS!! GREAT SERVICE!! I wish I could eat here Every Day!!

Worst

If this is Atlanta's best for seafood, Burger King would make a good steak house! The food is substandard at best. It looks like seafood. It tastes like seafood. Yes, it's sea...

Great Food; Execellent Service; Lackluster Ambiance 12/9/2010

The food at AFM is delicious. I had a chilean sea bass and salmon combo and my wife had the surf and turf special. \r \r The service was excellent as well. When I made the reservation I told them it was my wife's birthday, and several times throughout the evening the staff would wish her a happy birthday. They even brought out a free dessert for her.\r \r Our only issue was the ambiance. If you are looking for a romantic dinner, this is not the place. The atmosphere was akin to a food court environment, and the decor was abysmal and out-dated.\r \r So as long as you don't really care about a romantic environment, we recommend Atlanta Fish Market. more

I Love the Fish Market!! 10/22/2010

SO DELICIOUS!! GREAT SERVICE!! I wish I could eat here Every Day!! more

Everything was wonderful! 9/27/2010

Delicious food, from the Fish Market Hot Tower appetizer to the Blackened Atlantic Salmon (awesome!), AFM ""Chopped Salad"", Black Grouper, wine, and dessert... combined with spectacular service and excellent atmosphere! \r \r Everything together created a perfect background for an enjoyable time for our whole group! more

Great Food and Atmosphere 3/25/2010

Ate lunch here yesterday and it was great as it always is. Will definately frequent again! Pros: Great Oysters more

Full and Satisfied 1/31/2010

love love love this place! I have been about 5 times and always leave filled to capacity. The yummi yummi sushi rolls are the BEST! please try them on your visit. The entrees have never disappoointed and the servers are always attentive. If u make a reservation before 9 there is no wait even on a saturday. The tables in the back are extremely small though; the server had to shift things around just to make room. But other than that I love the place! Be careful; it can get pricey. We always end up paying at least $80 for two people not including tip. Pros: Yummi Yummi Sushi Roll is a MUST! Cons: small tables more

Go to the bar, ask Joe for the BOCA, start your night off with a boost!\r \r moved onto oysters, then sushi...hubby got the stuffed lobster. all made to perfection...fresh, and fun!\r \r waiter..was odd, but very attentive.\r \r we ended the night with an oreo cheesecake- yummy, and the apple crumb cake with ice cream...friend thought top should have been crunchier...however, that didnt keep us from finishing it off! Pros: always a winner! more

Quite the Birthday dinner 7/20/2009

I celebrated my birthday yesterday with my girlfriend and I have to say that the food surpassed my expectations. After rave reviews from parents and friends, I finally decided to check it out. Highly recommended was the calamari. The best I have ever had. Not too oily or fishy. Quickly flash fried and served with a great sauce. I had sushi , fried lobster tails and the wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese. Everything was super fresh and cooked perfectly. A nice ambiance throughout the restaurant. I will be visiting again shortly. Pros: Wonderful atmosphere, extrodinary food Cons: Serving portions could be more generous more

Best Seafood in Atlanta 2/9/2009

I really love this place. I've been there about 4x's and each time I go we leave full and satisfied. Everything was great from the appetizers all the way to deserts. They make great alcolohic drinks too. I ordered the King crab legs that came with asparagus and mashed potatos. Excellent choice if you are a crab llover and plenty of food to take home. My husband ordered the stuffed lobster. YUMMY! OMG you will be in heaven when you taste either entree. I recommend this place to anyone new in town or just looking for good seafood. The servers are very knowledgable as well. I'm going this Saturday for Valentines and I just can't stop thinking about it. My mouth is watering now...... more

A Must for Atlanta Seafood! 12/10/2008

When I want seafood in Atlanta, I always think of the Atlanta Fish Market. With fresh catch flown in daily, it is by far the best option in the city. They have a large menu selection for both lunch and dinner, with personal favorites such as the Peruvian Sea Bass, Grouper Francese, Crab Cakes (hands down the best I have ever had), and the legendary Fried Lobster Tail. Also, don't miss out on the Blue Cheese Caesar Salad, Fish Market Iced Tower, or the fabulous sushi menu! \r \r As a native Atlantan and frequent diner of AFM, I have never once had anything but exceptional service. The wait staff is friendly and personable and very attentive. The atmosphere is perfect, fun and airy but also quiet enough to enjoy your conversation. Pros: Fresh Seafood, Attentive Servers, Complimentary Valet more

Disappointment 10/20/2008

The decor was out of date. As soon as you walk in you can see the floor tiles are all broken off. Tables are put together so it looks like a cafeteria, not a romantic restaurant. We ordered the tuna carpaccio for an appetizer and all you could taste was the oil and onions drizzled on top. It was too oily for my liking. My main course of halibut tasted okay, but the green beans tasted like they were from a can (they were overly cooked) and the potatoes had a gamey taste. I'm not sure if they put chicken stock in them. The only redeeming quality was the good service, but it wasn't enough to bring us back. more

Highly Overated 10/7/2008

I went to AFM on 10/4/08 because it was my sister's birthday and she wanted seafood so AFM is regarded highly for having great food. Firstly, we made reservations for 8:30 we didn't get seated right away because the whole party hadn't arrived yet. Okay, so once we all got there we still weren't seated. We got seated at about 9:15. What's the point in making reservations if we were going to have to wait anyway? Okay so we got the the Hot Tower appetizer for free since we complained about them not seating us on time. Then when we got our food.... for the price they charge for fish they sure don't give you enough. My waitress was very nice and the atmosphere was nice. The drinks were okay but other than that..... Not very special Pros: Location, Atmosphere, Drinks Cons: Pricey food and you don't get enough more

Very nice experiences on two occasions 8/14/2008

I've been to the Atlanta Fish Market twice, and I've enjoyed the quality of the food and the service both times.\r I went the first time for a business lunch several months ago and also had dinner there last week. For dinner, my husband and I started out with the Calamari and an order of sushi. Our entrees were delicious and the service was top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant. We did make reservations and did not have a problem getting our table right away. Pros: Service, Food Quality, Menu Selection more

as my birthday dinner 5/11/2008

The food here was good and my service was wonderful. Our server was very attentive and we were asked how we liked the food and everything from who I think is the owner. I would say make reservations for dinner time and they have normal seafood and also sushi, but I did not try the sushi. Recommended for seafood lovers. Pros: food, service more

What a disappointment! 3/16/2008

I am relatively new to Atlanta and have been very impressed with the quality of the restaurants in this restaurant group. I took a visiting freind to AFM for dinner, expecting a very good experience. The service was poor. We had to wait what I considered a long time to order (for a Wednesday night when the restaurant was not crowded). The salads came before the appetizer course - no big deal. However, we sent the entree back when it arrived and still no appetizer course. When we did get our ceviche, it was warm and would have been much better chilled. When the entree arrived the second time it was barely warm. Overall, the food was mediocre. I won't be going back. Pros: Comfortable atmosphere Cons: Service more

pretty good for atlanta 3/9/2008

we eat here a bit its pretty good for atlanta being atlantas not a city for seafood. but the service is nice the quality is good and its a nice place. the oysters there are wondifull we have them often Pros: good seafood Cons: crowed on weekends more

Good food & service.......... terrible atmosphere & seating. 12/28/2007

We had a reservation and were seated after 1 drink at the bar. It was just my husband & I for our anniversary dinner, we had read all the rave reviews & had to come here.\r We were seated at a McDonalds style 2 seater cafe table. Servers were rushing past us the entire meal and our food only just fit on the tiny table! We pretty much felt we were in the way and like sheep herded to one side. My husband ordered Crab legs on a steak, but they had run out (at 7pm), so he ordered crabcakes instead. I got the lobster & both meals were brought out prompty & cooked perfectly. \r We had no complaints about the food or the service. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly & was knowlegable of the menu. The atmosphere of the place was just terrible, there was no ambience. Definitely not a romantic restaurant, they packed so many people in there to maximize profit that all you could hear was a mixture of conversations & the clanking of plates and cutlery (i felt like I was in a mall food court). I would maybe come back here in a large group, but that's it! Pros: Good food, great service Cons: No ambience, bad seating more

does not live up to so-called high standards 12/21/2007

I can?t tell you anything about AFM?s food because I didn?t get to taste it. My husband and I walked in during the afternoon (day after Thanksgiving) and they were not busy at all. The hostess was on the phone taking a reservation. I was a bit taken aback that she never once smiled and acknowledged us when we walked up to the hostess stand. She didn?t even lift her head once. A friendly smile would have been sufficient to let us know that she saw us and that she would get to us as soon as she could, but that must have been too much to ask. Perhaps she did not want to be there on that particular day, but she needn?t take out her frustrations on the customers. The ?hostess? finally did put the phone down and only asked us for our last name and how many there were in our party.\r \r The ""manager"" was rude and condescending. It seems that some other folks have posted negative comments about him. I am assuming that it is the same person because it sure sounds like him. Anyway, I lost my appetite by a comment that he made about me to the server. Apparently he must think that he knows me somehow (we?ve never met). She came over to the table acting a bit sheepish. She started to take our order. I told my husband that he could eat but that I didn?t want to. He protested, saying that I should eat something. He had not caught on to what had offended me. We then agreed to leave without ordering anything. We told the waitress that we would pay for the drinks and leave. She said not to worry about the drinks. The same hateful manager came outside to try to ask us if there was a problem and try to convince us in a cheesy, weak, and pathetic way to come back and give them ?another chance.? I responded to him that he was actually was the problem, and that I refused to eat at a place where I am not treated with respect. Will I ever go back there? That remains to be seen. I just hate to give my money to Buckhead life and make those folks who are so undeserving any richer. Cons: doesn't live up to high standards it claims to have more

TRAP 12/21/2007

Food and presentation were very average. Prep. for shell fish was not good. Sevice was not so bad. more

Worst Experience in Atlanta Yet! 11/29/2007

We went because my father wanted too. That's all I'm going to say. I knew better. Nothing was good from the time we entered the door. One note I need to mention, servers should NEVER have bad personal habits like- Telling us about ""their"" personal stuff. Cons: Horrible Company, but I knew that before going.... more

nice space, fair service, high price 10/18/2007

Firstly, the decor hasn't changed much over the years and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The ceiling is high and the main room is spacious. There are more intimate dining areas towards the front. Whatever you do, do not let them seat you in the back room which has the feel of a basement. The bar area is fine for drinks or dining. Second, the service is OK. Not too bad, but not great. The food was too rich, either too salty, or too buttery. Therefore if you do try this restaurant I recommend sticking with the bare bones broiled or Hong Kong style. But stay away from the overly cheesy whipped potatoes. Because most dishes were highly fattening and too rich to eat I do not plan on returning. However, smart choices of salad w/ light dressing can be ordered. Pros: fun decor Cons: pricey, most dishes overly buttery or salty more
