The rude management and staff made me feel as if I was downtown at a swank hotspot. Well AG you are not.
You are pretty much an overpriced chain restaurant on the UES. We were greeted by a rude hostess that looked like she hated her life,

My friends took me here for my birthday and I still remember the place vividly. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was so calm, so pleasant. The sea bass dish was delicious, like it was fresh fish out of water. The price was also reasonable for us. Recommend if for special celebration.

I cannot rave about the job BOG does with this place. I've eaten at most of their other restaurants and have never been disappointed but Atlantic Grill stands out from the others IMO. I live on the UES and always choose this place for a special occassion or a spontaneous dinner out with someone special when you want to truly be pampered with great food and service.

The service from the host/hostess to the bar staff to the wait staff is nothing short of superb. The food is always consistent, always fresh and the wine list outstanding. The lobster salad with the roasted peaches is amazing in the summer. The sushi, though some non traditional, is very good (try the house special sea bass roll ) As for entrees the sea bass and crab crusted snapper are my faves but the scallops are great too.

Their wine list seems to have a lot of boutique offerings that are high quality or some vintages from producers that you know but that aren't available retail. The markups seem less than most restaurants too from what I can see, about 70-80%, not 125-150% like many, but that market is always changing season to season.

I live on the upper east side and Atlantic Grill is the BEST restaurant in the hood. Be sure to make reservations, otherwise you will find yourself standing in the crowded bar area for quite some time. I've tried close to everything on the menu and recommend the crab cakes, spicy crunchy tuna roll (unreal) and the sea bass. My friends LOVE the chopped salad too. The service is top-notch and really attentive (in a good, not annoying way) Can't wait for the summer, a glass of chard + a few rolls = A fabulous night on the UES

I've eaten at Blue Water Grill several times, but wanted to try someplace new. Atlantic Grill did not disappoint! The miso chilean sea bass roll was one of the best rolls I've ever had and the nori wrapped big eye tuna was a nice twist on a favorite dish. Everything was delicious! We finished off a great meal by ordering the carrot cake with ginger ice cream, which had amazing flavor. The ginger ice cream was a surprise and delight and like nothing I have ever had. The restaurant had a great vibe and atmosphere and I will definitely be going back.

Normally I don't write reviews, but for whatever reason the majority of CitySearch critics are unbelievably picky and negative that you can easily get turned off by Le Bernardin and Per Se's write-ups. Having said that, Atlantic Grill was perfect. From the atmosphere (felt like we were in Florida near a marina) to the food (my mahi mahi was insane)...perfect.

And definitely go with the banana dessert tower to close out your night.

My husband and I visited Atlantic Grill for lunch on his birthday and we had a wonderful experience. I called at 11:45a and got reservations for noon. By 1:00 the place was packed so I was very thankful. Our server was excellent and the food was wonderful. We had crab cakes for an appetizer. My husband had the salmon burger and I had the ahi tuna salad, which was a very generous portion. We will definitely return on our next trip to NYC.

I went to Atlantic Grill with a friend on Memorial Day for late lunch and we had a lovely time! Prompt service and a great little table in the outdoor seating area! Our kind waitress Jacqulin was very helpful & kept our waters & bread basket full on a very warm holiday. Great outdoor atmosphere & very clean bathrooms inside! The sweet potato chips were a lovely addition to the salmon burger! And the ice cream flavors were so creative when it came time for dessert! Reasonable pricing & friendly service will for sure bring me back to Atlantic Grill - but then again, all the BRGuest resturaunts have really impressed me! Thanks for a great meal!

Went here for a friend's bday brunch. Service was excellent from start to finish. They allowed us to do a prix fixe menu, which included a seasonal fruit plate, entree, dessert, and one beverage of your choice (mimosa, bloody mary, etc.). The food was excellent, our server Brenda was excellent, the mgmt was accomodating. I can't say too many good things. One of the best meal experiences I've had in NY in a long time! Will plan on coming back here despite the fact that I live nowhere near this place and parking is hard on the weekends...

I went here with my family, who unlike moi, aren't the most cooth of people. However annoying I am sure they are, they don't deserve an eye roll from the jerky waiter after asking for dressing on the side.
The food was alright, nothing to write home about, but the atmosphere itself was nice, very bright and sunny and a good place to take a client for lunch. Just beware the waiters, for if you aren't uber-chic, you will definitely get some attitude!

We visited Altantic Grill during resturant week. Having read the reviews we were expecting something special. We were very disappointed. We had booked the table in advance, but had to wait 45mins to be seated. Having ate out at several different resturants during resturant week we felt the resturant week menu here was the poorest we had seen, very little choice. I had the fish offering which had a very poor flavour and texture. My wife had the ribs which were quite fatty. For dessert I had the chocholate tart with ice cream, again poor flavour. My impression is that the resturant sacraficed quality for quantity during the resturant week promotion.

A friend and I shared a lovely dinner at Atlantic Grill last night. We started with the Florida Roll (crab and shrimp) which was paired with a delicious sauce. She and I both ordered off of the "simply grilled" menu - I had the tuna, served medium rare, she had the salmon served well. The medley of vegetables was just steamed brocoli and carrots, nothing memorable. The fines herbes relish was delicious if not a bit on the oily side. Our dessert of the banana tower (I've had before at Blue Water Grill) was of course delightful as this is a staple. I will always recommend the banana tower! Compared to Aquagrill and Blue Water Grill, I would say that Atlantic Grill is not quite as good. The ambience isn't as interesting and the food wasn't as good as I remembered the others to be. However, the service was exceptional and I will definitely return.

The Food was good, can't say knock it. But the management has alot of nerve charging what they do. No big shot chef, no special history or story about the place, and not a historic location with lots of history. It's on 3rd Avenue between 76 and 77 streets, big deal! The service was good, not spectacular, but our waitress seemed like she just finished working at one of the bars around the corner, not a professional server by any means. I would not go back, can think of many places serving the same quality, similar menu, for much more affordable prices, and more suiting atmosphere.

I have eaten there twice in the last month. Don't ask me why I went back a second time. I sent back my first meal because it was badly over cooked and tasteless to boot. My wife's dish was also overdone. The Nori Tuna was excellent. On our second venture we had 6 people with us and only one, the Nori Tuna orderer had anything nice to say about their meal. The moral of the story is, everything will be fine if you only order the Nori Tuna and send everything back that isn't prepared in the manner you requested. I am very dissapointed.

I enjoy great food but also what is important to me when I go out to dinner is a restaurant with a great atmosphere. Atlantic Grill has a classic look with a warm feel. The menu had a great selection of seafood items: sushi, lobster, and several types of fish to please anyone. The food was delicious and I truly enjoyed my meal at this place. I would highly recommend this place!!! The wine list is a little pricey but well worth it. We shared a great bottle of wine - La Croix St. Laurent - Sancerre. Beautiful!!

Been going here since it opened & have seen the quality & value decrease considerably. The portions are now very small, the sauces are overly-ambitious & usually inedible & while the service is still good, the restaurant, due to its popularity, seems frantic. Recommended: appetizer calamari, beautifully deep-fried, but served with 2 awful sauces--ask for an alternative sauce. Best dish is nori-wrapped tuna. If you live outside the neighborhood, don't bother!

Just don't do it. Three strikes and this restaurant is out. Everything that happened was not even up to mediocre. They did not have mayonnaise, forgot our toast, left out ingredients (ie cheese in an omelet), below hot temperatures and the bacon was so over cooked it crumbled on the plate when you touched it. And at the conclusion of this culinary nightmare the check was given to our table by knocking over a glass of water.

A former asst mgr. at a 5 star NYC restaurant,my judgement is fair. I've been here several times. Ambiance is nice; music is CD 101.9 - needs a revamp immediately. Crowd is scene-oriented: young, preppy hipsters and 50-60 year-olds.
Food is bad and the tab is quite high. Service is adequate: there is an attempt at traditional French "table service", found in high-end restaurants. Their attempt is a failure.
Reception at the front is rude. I was there 2 weeks ago on crutches. Made a 9pm reservation, arrived exactly on time. Was told to wait 15-20 minutes. The hostess' manner was cold, rude and frankly, unacceptable. There was no where to sit and no one offered me a seat.
You are better off dropping $200 at a 4 or 5 star establishment rather than at an amateurish venue like this.

The service is not very good, but I find that we try Atlantic Grill at least once a year. The food is excellent. The sushi and fish are amazingly fresh. Everytime we've been there, they have had to make up for the lack of service. One time, they brought over every single dessert they had on the tray to apologize. Not bad! Hopefully this time, everything will be excellent. For the price, it should be!

The Sunday evening that I was here was quite busy. Yet, my party was seated seated promptly, and our waiter was very attentive. Don't go here for sushi, but for one of the other lovely seafood dishes, i.e sea bass, swordfish. Really great wine list, and the desserts were divine. I would go back here again definitely.

The Sunday evening that I was here was quite busy. Yet, my party was seated seated promptly, and our waiter was very attentive. Don't go here for sushi, but for one of the other lovely seafood dishes, i.e sea bass, swordfish. Really great wine list, and the desserts were divine. I would go back here again definitely.

Pros: attentive service, excellent seafood

I loved the place, our server was very attentive and effective, serving and removing quickly and always asking if there was anything else we needed and how everything was...LOVED LOVED LOVED the sushi, weird combinations that turn out to be absolutely fantastic, they change periodically but be sure to check them out!

Atlantic Grill has outside seating but don't try to make a reservation. The overly chipper person who answered the phone told me that I can not reserve an outside seat. The dining room is crowded & loud so outside is the best option. This is the second BR Guest foul up for me.

Pros: outdoor seating, oysters on the 1/2 sh, date place

Cons: loud inside, bar overcrowded, snide wait staff

Get the Red Snapper if they have it. It is the best dish I've ever had at any restaurant that serves fish hands down.

The food at Atlantic Grill rates a 9. The appetizers were great as were the entrees. The wine was great. The only thing missing was the service unfortunately. It was like our waitress was somewhere else mentally.
I would go back as long as I requested one of their best servers which I am sure they would do after we let them know what happened the first time. And we will be back!

Atlantic Grill has one of the best menus for fresh fish I've seen. I only had lunch here, but i had great shrimp and a spectacular lobster, and the dessert was heavenly. There was a nice atmosphere except for the few pompous patrons who looked way too gaudy or a lunch time meal, but overall its a great place to eat.

Aside from the Yuppies and Wannabes buzzing around the jam-packed bar, this is the place for an elegant, fresh seafood meal. Definitely call first for a reservation or you may have to wait a looooong time. You can also go in the summer when it is slow and more empty. Try the Sea Bass, Halibut and DELICIOUS sushi. Good for Bruch as well. Beautiful Chilled seafood platters (and I don't eat shellfish) that would make a Kosher person convert!

this is the best sea bass I have ever had--absolutely amazing. the restaurant is big, and not a whole lot of seating by windows, but you agree to that when you go. otherwise, service was adequate--not much personal interaction, but I will attribute that to our waitress gauging us (I was with family and were were talking amongst ourselves). It was busy so I understand it taking a little time for our second glass of wine or water, nothing too annoying. I'm going again tonight!

This place is good but food and service is presented for the masses, not much personalized service considering the price tag and that it is a
full-evening-out type of dinner place. Fish was fresh tasting but not really tantilizing with flavor.
At least the upper east side has one seafood restaurant up there, so you really don't have much choice if you're up there and craving seafood.

This restaurant being the same ownership as the famed Bliue Water Grill and Ocean Grill, is known and reputed for the freshest and tastiest sea food in town, no doubt, by far it keeps up to its reputation. The food is excellent, the service and ambiance equally up to its standards, just make sure to make reservations, this very popular and always crowded swanky restaurant can have long waits!

This Upper East Side restaurant refreshingly eschews the nautical trappings one finds in many seafood establishments. Its signature dishes include nori-wrapped big-eye tuna, crispy Thai calamari, and barbecued mahi mahi. The kitchen is…
