Atlanta Fish Market Restaurant Review: A 60-foot fish sculpture, sheathed in weathering copper scales and fins, welcomes diners to this Buckhead seafood emporium. Start with a selection of fresh bivalves from myriad sources. If you want them cooked, we suggest the crisp fried version, but there's also an acceptable Rockefeller. Savannah blue crab bisque is rich with crab meat. The former Geechee Porch, a bar area, now is the sushi bar. Be firm about how well done you want your fish: the swordfish with crushed cashews and cracked peppercorns came a little overcooked for our preferences. Skate wing meunière pairs with mashed spuds and green beans, or choose a fish from a list of offerings and decide how you want it prepared, whether grilled, blackened or sautéed. Try the sea bass Hong Kong-style, steamed with soy and sherry and seasoned with ginger and scallions. King crab legs, stone crab claws and soft-shell crabs when available are first-rate; the mussels, though, seem small and tasteless. There are four steaks on the menu, and gluten-free options, too. Desserts are well-executed; make your choice the New Orleans bread pudding. AFM’s wine list features many wines by the glass that work well with the food, Albariño and Muscadet, for instance, although we miss a dry still rosé.
