Diner Reviews
  • "We decided to eat a late lunch/early dinner at 4:00 on a Saturday. We started with the Steamers which were excellent. They came with a beer broth, a nice twist. My wife had the hoison salmon with pad thai and I had the scrod. Both were outstanding, cooked perfectly and generous sized portions. The waitstaff was very attentive but gave us our space so it was a nice relaxing meal. Highly recommend the Legal-C Bar in Dedham..."

  • "Good food and service but quite slow and VERY noisy. The kitchen couldn't seem to keep up with the flow."

  • "We made reservations at Legal C bar but did not specify what type of table. We were led on a crowded evening to a shared table in a very noisy section of the restaurant. When we explained it was a work related dinner, they graciously reseated us with a reasonable wait. Our server was enthusiastic and accomodating and we had a delicious meal. If you are looking for a quieter table at this Legal, definitely mention that when you make the reservation."

  • "This was the most disappointing meal I have ever had! The food was gross. The menu was very small and way too overpriced! My parents came up from Florida, and we went expecting some great food. None of us liked or finished our meals, nor did we take home any leftovers. The bill for 3 people came to $200!! It was so loud in there that we couldn't even hear each other talk. We sat in a both at the back of the restaurant, and it was so loud. Then there was the heat from the food cooking right next to us. Overall just a bad experience. I feel so bad that my parents paid so much for this lousy meal. None of us will go back again. What a shame :("

  • "Two traveling families met for lunch at Legal C Dedham, which was a convenient mid-point. The online reservation process was quick and easy, the food was great. Something for everyone in our party. The restaurant was clean and modern, staff was attentive and food was prepared correctly and efficiently. We'd go back!"

  • "We started off with great cocktails- enjoyed my Raspberry mule... Others had the sangria that was good too. Always love the food at Legal- fresh fish and a great crab cake appetizer. Since this was for our friend's birthday, I had asked for some kind of dessert with a candle in my reservation comments... Legal did not disappoint!! Dessert was a mouse/ cake with hot fudge - yum - and a pleasant surprise! Our server was terrific - attentive and friendly. Great evening! Definitely will come back!"

  • "Food was excellent-Tomato Buratta Salad and Fish Tacos. Noise level was much too high. Did not get the outdoor table as requested when I made the reservation. Was not a packed house so it would have been nice if they had held one for our reservation."

  • "Only negative was no family tables. Although the booths accomodated a party of 6 they were squeezed together with no room for expansion. The wait staff was amazing and the food was everything I thought it would be."

  • "the food at Legals is very consistent. This time i had the scrod and it was excellent. I thought the brown rice was tasteless and the beans were good but much too much oil or butter. My friend had clam chowder which was brought very hot - that's a good thing and then a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. That's all we ate. The waitress was very competent and friendly."

  • "OpenTable worked perfectly. (Haven't tried it before, but will again.) Everything about our waitress - and experience - at Legal C was outstanding. "Can X be substituted for Y?" "Whatever you want, we can do." So refreshing to be treated so well. Owner/manager dropped by the table to check on things, which was a nice touch. A very nice experience for a group of four friends for lunch. No leftovers/take-homes, which was not normal for us. All dishes were perfect... ocnj"

  • "This was my first visit to a Legal C Bar, and I wasn't sure how it would differ from Legal Test Kitchen or Legal Seafoods. I really like the vibe of Legal C Bar. It was much more hip, less formal and appropriately upscale casual. The food was great, well enjoyed by everyone at my table. We ordered the mussels, fried pickles, big green salad, a caesear salad, clam chowder and scallops. Everyone was really happy with their food, all the dishes were eaten in their entirety. I had the big green salad and the mussels and I was very happy with both dishes. The big green salad was a surprise ringer - I can't wait to go back and have the salad again. We each had drinks with our meal as well, and I was pleased with the range the bar offered."

  • "I took my husband there for his birthday. After talking to the manager on the phone, I was assured that we would get the free birthday bon bon dessert because they don't have birthday cakes available. I waited patiently and there were no bon bons."

  • "Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. I personally find the restaurant (atmosphere) cold compared to a normal legals. A bit too stripped down. Our server was absolutely excellent and super attentive. Food was excellent."

  • "Overall a good dining experience...food was good, waiter was excellent: friendly, was very helpful in our decision making. The hostesses seemed confused though at where to seat us. We were a party of two and the restaurant was half full. She wanted to seat us in the upper balcony where no one else was seated, then in the far back on the other end, again not close to anyone else. At first we were feeling a bit ostracized, but then looked around and realized they had almost no tables for two available... plenty of threes and fours. Am chalking this up to inexperience or cluelessness. Either way was awkward for us."

  • "I eat at Legal's a lot, but never this particular one. It was significantly inferior to any other Legal's I've been to, on pretty much every level. Don't plan on going back, which is a shame. Legal's might want to take a good look at this restaurant and fix the issues they're having."

  • "A great meal on a beautiful day sitting outside at Legal's C Bar in Dedham. As usual with Legal the food was fresh and delicious. The service was good and the price, well, you get what you pay for. However, $12.50 for a glass of ordinary wine? Our table of four had three glasses of wine. When you add in tax and tip , $46 for the beverages. Next time I'll skip the wine and stick with the sea food."

I have very severe food allergies and the staff at Legal C Bar is outstanding accommodating my needs. They take food allergies very seriously and also treat everyone well so that I never feel awkward. The server we had was amazing - professional, cheerful, attentive!!"

  • "The food here is always good. I'm actually amazed that the chicken dishes are as good as the fish dishes. Everything on the menu will taste good. The atmosphere and the servers make this place an awesome find for lunch, dinner, or late night drinks. Make sure to have reservations between 6-8:30 pm on weekends. It gets crowded."

  • "First hot night and off we went to eat outdoors. The bugs were flying everywhere but after we killed a few they settled down. Everyone always raves about Legal but I must say on this visit I was disappointed. The drinks were small and the mussels tasteless. Our waitress did not seem that busy but she was impossible to find when needed. It took over 15 min just to get our check. So sorry to say - when you pay their prices and are not happy - you will not go back "

  • "I have yet to go anywhere else that tops Legals fish! I can't stand it! They just know how to cook it right!! Service is always friendly and attentive. I am a pretty pick eater and they always make the dish however I want it. Bathrooms were really nice and clean too. :) I do wish they had mahi mahi on the menu but other than that you are pretty perfect Legals. "

  • "Our food was great. We were seated way up in the corner and the lightbulbs were out. had to use a flashlight app to view the menu. Our waiter told us the bar was too busy to pour our beers. twenty minute wait. our waiter brought wrong sides with entrees. waiter quoted the wrong desserts and when we told him he said "yea but you like it, right?" Our bill was close to a hundred dollars and I expected way better service. We will not ever go there again."
