    The food at the restaurant was fairly decent. We ordered a whole roasted baby snapper with pan-fried leader prawns and some chips & salad. The snapper however was cooked nicely, but in taste, it felt a bit bland and lacked some seasoning. The portion size was okay, but we would have loved it more if there were some sides along with it. We had to order the sides separately because we just couldn't just eat the fish alone. Everything else was great and especially the cocktails. We loved the Apple crumble and Lynchburg lemonade and also, the dessert Snickers Parfait (this was the best dish of all).

    A little too rushed as if we where being booted out for next shift. Understood we had two hours but suggest place drinks on table so people can settle THEN place food rather than all together. Geoff Harris

    This was a Birthday surprise for my Partner. 500 words is not enough to describe the poor and disappointing experience. Food was very poor and sub standard. Prices were expensive. Service was poor . Table placement was in front of a walkway. Will never visit or recommend this restaurant again.

    The Atlantic sound lonely on paper, however the quality of food was extreamly poor. The seafood at the local markets is better as is the fish and chips.

    What more can I say other than thank you from the bottom of my heart for an amazing night to celebrate my partners birthday. From the moment we arrived she received birthday greeting and all the staff acknowledged her special night. The food was on point and they sure know how to make a dirty martini. Service was immaculate from start to finish. Can not thank the team enough for ensuring my parent felt spoilt all night. Can’t wait to come dine again.

    The company of my wife and the food was good. But the level of service was below par. Took nearly 30 mins to place a drink order. Had to ask for food menus about 10 mins after sitting. Almost always had to get attention of a waiter. Otherwise we were constantly over looked. Been come here on and off since The Atlantic opened. Was very disappointed with the service.

    The welcoming from the staff was exceptional, but it just stopped there. The entrees and wine were good but the mains were very average. We got our food at a reasonable time but the rest of the service was mediocre. We were not offered coffee but they did ask if we wanted the bill as we were finishing off our dessert. Not what you would expect from a place like this..

    We were shown down to The Den as our table wasn't ready for us at 8.15pm. At 8.45pm I asked if we'd been forgotten. They showed us to our table in an area that was basically empty. They had forgotten us. Although the food was beautiful, the service was atrocious. The staff abrupt even to the point of being rude. Probably because they were serving us so late. It was their mistake not ours we were there on time. Never again. There are many better seafood restaurants in the city.

    Nothing made it special. The venue is nice but the food was fairly putrid for the prices charged. My first 3 oysters had bulk shell in it. The oysters at Nobu are 100 times better and that’s not a designated seafood restaurant. I think it’s fair to say I was left extremely underwhelmed. The platter was the best part but is way overpriced. Octopus was half decent but 50% of it was as tough as the soles of my shoes.

    Food was average, we ordered a 1.2 Kg Wagu steak to share, ordered it medium rare and it came out medium well done. also ordered 1.2KG Snapper, but it was well under that size, really just enough for 2 people. Drinks took forever to come even though there were plenty of staff checking on us.

    The food was incredible, we had entrees of oysters and sashimi platter. Mains of baby snapper, morten bay bug spaghettini, and fish and chips- it was amazing! Service was not great- we were constantly waiting for the server to fetch our wine that was kept in a fridge, (we did ask to keep it to make it easier, but she was worried it would get warm... we were more worried about getting thirsty) Noise- was ridiculously loud. The music was a best of the club scene in 2000. But would go back!
