We had amazing, attentive, invested service by Mari. The view was great, the service was wonderful, and the food was superb! Highly recommend! (Of note, we found it to be surprisingly kid-friendly, too, and appropriate for our 1.5-yr old.)6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPefect Water ViewLovely setting. Scrumptious food. Excellent service.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and SceneThe food is fantastic and the view and scene is great as well. Highly recommend!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy Crispy Fish TacosI tried something new this time, and the fish tacos were excellent! Topped with fresh, crunchy slaw, these were the best ones I've had on the East Coast. We had a table at the back of the restaurant and the walls were opened up so we felt like we were eating outside - it was perfect. We were there at 6 on a Saturday and the place was hopping. It was a bit noisy, but we were at the end of the room, so it wasn't bad. Great value and fun menu.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm weather hot spot!Perfect for dining al fresco. The views of the harbor are fantastic and the vibe is energetic. Our food was waterfront-appropriate.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMToo Loud for someWe enjoyed the ambience but my elderly father had a hard time hearing our conversation, and we were seated outside where it was a lot quieter than the inside.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food with a beautiful viewLegals continues to produce great seafood. This dining experience was superb as our two dishes of salmon and trout were cooked perfectly and the ambience and view of the harbor were great. Service was attentive and very friendly.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, but..We went there with 8 people for a special occasion, and had a fantastic meal, with great service. The view is gorgeous, and the open air was really nice. My only complaint is that is was so noisy that we couldn't hear conversations frequently, and we ended up yelling at each other to be heard.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite spot in the Seaport!The food was absolutely delicious and our service was fast but didn't feel rushed. We ordered the baked stuffed artichokes, oysters, mushroom bruschetta, fried calamari, scallops with chick peas, and the crab meat salad. The drinks were great ... We loved the Cucumber Cooler. Our server, Becky, was amazing! She didn't miss a beat and was very friendly. She also made great recommendations for the oysters. We had a reservation for the patio but when we got there it was very hot and humid. The hostess was proactive and very accommodating and offered us a table inside that had a great view and we didn't even have to ask for it. Overall, this was the perfect venue for 4 college friends to catch up over cocktails and delicious food.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Atmosphere!My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and we had a fabulous time! Food was delicious, bartenders were awesome and veiw was perfect!

Will be back and will def reccommend to others5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant, view, foodThe location for view is great and the layout of the multi-floor restaurant is outstanding. Food, as usual, was excellent and so was the service. The restaurant is extremely loud. Both the 1st and 3rd floor are loud enough you need to shout across a table.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHarborside LunchComfortable setting with great harbor view. Delicious lobster roll.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for drinks and lunchWe went there after my son's graduation. They were very accommodating and the service was great.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food on the first floorThe food on the first floor is good and the view is great!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, great foodWent to Legal Harborside Floor 1 on Saturday after graduation. Glad we had reservations, many people had the same idea. Arrived early so went to the roof top for a drink. Great view, really fun. Got beeped for lunch. Had a great waitress. Sat just inside, which was good because it was windy. Food was excellent, especially the steamers. All enjoyed their meals. Mostly fried food, but one pasta dish. All was good. Have been before and would go again. Great overall experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service!We made a reservation to celebrate a family milestone and though we were unavoidably 20 minutes late, we were still graciously seated at our table for 6 without waiting. The waitress was very friendly and the service was excellent. The food was delicious as always. Of course, the view was magnificent. The only disappointment was the noise level. The restaurant was quite full and there was so much noise at a constant level that it was impossible to be heard by the person across the table without shouting. It was even necessary to speak into the ear of the person next to me to be heard. Since conversation was practically impossible, it detracted from what we'd hoped would be a relaxing and celebratory dinner. Acoustic panels, perhaps?5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMsightsoundsA very good dining experience. My father loves Legal Seafood clam chowder, and that certainly did not disappoint. Additionally, the service was very prompt, considerate, and attentive. We even disputed a charge and it was taken care of in a judicious and courteous manner. Additionally, the decor and scenery were amazing. A very fun place to dine during daylight hours.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT SERVICE! GREAT AMBIENCE!I always love eating at the Legal Harborside!!!! It has such a great ambience! Food is impeccable! Service is awesome!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat family dinnerThis was a great spot to take our out-of-town parents to for dinner. The food was great, the service was friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed everything. The dessert "special" was ok, but nothing remarkable. My favorite part of the meal was the oysters, although the table bread and entrees were amazing as well.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive service. Great ambience.Attentive service. Great ambience. Overpriced and undersized raw bar selections. Diners need special access to rooftop which is disappointing5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!Two of us visited Legals for a business lunch. Enjoyed sitting outside as it was a wonderfully warm day with no wind off of the water. Watching the busy harbor was delightful as well. My dish (Portugese Stew) was outstanding. Ask for extra bread to sop up the delicious juice! The other diner had the seafood trio and commented how good it was. Bon Appetite!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to check out this newWanted to check out this new Legal's while I was visiting Boston and I was not dissapointed. The harbourside location at night provided the ambience. Food was as good as expected. Would visit again.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE place to bring out-of-townersI've been here at least 8 times, and it's consistently excellent for fun, informal dining with a vibrant, really fun feel from the fresh layout and design to the deck opening onto the working harbor. This is THE place I bring every out-of-town guest to show off the "new" Boston.
Service is top-notch. When I commented that I'd love more wine, just not a full glass, the waiter actually said he could sell me half a glass! I was floored! I like the Sausage & Shrimp Orecchiette, but without anchovies and with green beans substituted for broccoli rabe. They make the substitutions every time, even when it's busy. The wait staff, managers, hosts are all so friendly.
Gluten-free diners feel like royalty with their own rolls & menu.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster were delicious!The food was delicious and the wait staff excellent5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation partyWent there with a party of nine for a graduation (from graduate school) party.

Enjoyed a few cocktails on the rooftop deck before dinner, too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful lunchGreat experience at one of our favorite restaurants since the Inman Sq. days. Now we have a wonderful view, and a sparkling new building, but the food continues to be superb !

This is a Boston must.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Legal location and atmosphereBest Legal location and atmosphere so far - energetic with great views of harbor.

We ordered the scallop &Shrimp stuffed artichoke special for the app. AMAZING. We also split a lobster roll (you HAVE to when you're in Boston), again, Amazing. I had the Scallops as my main entree, perfectly cooked, would definitely recommend. My husband ordered the Arctic Char special, which was good, until we realized we got a bad cut of fish with a ton of bones (not their fault). The manager empathized with us and comped this entree, offered to replace with something else, but we declined- shared my meal instead. They also brought us a complimentary dessert since since one of our meals wasn't up to par. Great customer service and amazing food.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily AffairWe had an 8:30 reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. The restaurant was busy and it was close to graduation so we understood. Overall we had an enjoyable time. My only complaint is it took a while to be seated and took longer for our food to come. Our waitress was pleasant and the food was phenomenal!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceThe food, specifically the archtic char which was the day's special was great.

Food, as always, was very good. Some of our group was delayed and even though the restaurant was full, there was no pressure from the restaurant.
The views of the harbor are wonderful. Weather permitting the doors open to the "boardwalk"
Be sure to reserve way ahead of time when the weather permits outdoor seating.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreeting staff was friendly,Greeting staff was friendly, reservation was right on time, special request for window table was fulfilled, service was excellent - overall excellent. David Walsh4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelievable food & very consistentHonestly amazing food. The crab & pepperoni pizza and the crab roll are absolutely to die for. The Portuguese stew is also really good. Not crazy about their smaller plates like the hummus small bites but everything else is fantastic. We also had a great waitress and amazing view.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
