The fish was good. Everyone liked the food. Our problem was with the service. We had to ask for almost everything. It took 45 mins for our food to come out. It took 20 mins to get our drinks. Our server seemed like college age seasonal help and she didn't care much about us as patrons.

We live near Naked Fish and go there frequently. The place is comfortable and welcoming and the Cuban-inspired dishes -- especially the seafood -- is delicious! Last time we went we shared a great fried calamari appetizer, which was followed by a grilled seafood salad with shrimp, scallops, and calamari. Healthy and delicious!

What a great restaurant. Wished we found it earlier. The paella valencia had a lot of seafood and was delicious. The latin style ribs were very good too. The lobster roll sandwich was not bad for $19. Would definitely come back when we are back in the area!

After along road trip in the rain from Cleveland we three were ready for some good food and friendly atmosphere. The Naked Fish, with which we were unfamiliar, popped up on our route on Trip Advisor so we plugged it into the gps, and were glad we did; The gluten free scallop dish was succulent as were the haddock entrees....

I have been to this location often due to business in Waltham. Usually, I enjoy my meal, but this time things did not work out well. The biggest disappointment was the NE clam chowder. None of us that ordered it thought it was good. There were hardly any clams and even the potatoes were not cooked properly. The seared tune... More

During a weekend stay in the Boston area, I asked the hotel clerk for the name of a good local restaurant. One of the places she recommended was The Naked Fish. Since it was very close and I was in the mood for fish, I decided to try it. We were seated immediately, although the restaurant was quite busy. Meanwhile,... More

I have been to this restaurant multiple times. My favorite is their fried oysters...to die for! I had the catana (not sure of spelling) stew and it was great. Our waitress Carol was very attentive. Looking for to a return visit.

Went with colleagues for dinner. Was very excited to have some great fresh fish. The waitress was inattentive....tough to find. The fish was average at best. Very disappointed. I've had GREAT fish in Boston but not at this restaurant.
