Legal Harborside – Floor 2 Dining Room
Not just for lawyersSometimes you walk away from a pricey restaurant feeling it just wasn't worth the money. This is not one of those places. The second floor dining room has a bright, modern ambiance that feels rich without being ponderous. The view of the harbor towards Logan is interesting and especially enjoyable at night. Wait staff are attentive and pleasant. The food was absolutely splendid. Portions are sufficient to satisfy a hearty appetite without being excessive. One of the best restaurants on my personal list.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything cooked to perfection.Everything cooked to perfection. Somewhat pricey, great views of the harbor.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood Could be BetterWe were a group of 3. One dish - a smoked lobster creation, was wonderful. The other two - a swordfish and a salmon dish that seemed out of season, were a bit disappointing. Service was tops as was the view and quiet atmosphere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience as usual.Great experience as usual. Food was excellent but with 1 concern.
First though, Sword Fish Steak with bone was out of this world as was the special Lobster Pasta dish!
Special Salad was also Great. I had my usual Abalone and here was the slight problem, it was not as it usually was. It was just
a little over cooked with too much butter sauce that took away from the taste of the Abalone.
Otherwise all else was great as usual including the wine selection and the dessert!
we will be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experiencePortions were perfect. The staff was extremely attentive. Ever course I ate was delicious.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionThe food and view were excellent!

He remembered us from my birthday visit 7 months ago!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful location, delicious foodStaff was very helpful, did not rush, and went the extra mile to give us chef's specials like soup and desert. Even recognized the party was for my graduation and wrote a beautiful "Congratulations" note on my desert dish. Food was exceptional and reasonably sized, not too small like other fine dining restaurants. Menu had enough options to choose from and not too many to overwhelm. Did not know alot of the items and had to look them up but that did not deter. Drink and wine menu was inventive and has something for everyone. Very pleasurable experience and well worth the money.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't work for usCelebrating a graduation. Place was certainly upscale in food and atmosphere but for our group we couldn't hear each other which did not make our experience one that worked.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise LevelWonderful with one caveat; too loud - difficult to hold conversation at table of 6.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA tad pricey for "everyday"A tad pricey for "everyday" but great choice for special occasion!

Both the food and service were exceptional.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I enjoyed theMy friend and I enjoyed the Chef's menu with wine pairings. Each course and each wine were perfect and served with excellent timing. We had to work to get our waiter's attention a few times because he was busy, but we still had a wonderful experience and would recommend the restaurant to other visitors to Boston.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery thing was very goodEvery thing was very good keep up the good work. I have a suggestion for the 3rd. Floor about the music is very loud and it feels like more for teen agers music you could use little mix of such as Buddha bar or cafe delmar music. Will make it more romantic. thank you.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, service andGreat ambiance, service and menu options with focus on seafood.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe second floor has a diffirentThe second floor has a diffirent menu from the 1st floor.

We asked for fruity white wine and he brought us some without us having to look through the menu and it was right on the money. We started with the lobster soup which is magnificent and then moved to the local fish which was also delicious. The amuse bouche was a very appreciated extra and we loved the bayside views at night!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThree of us for birthday dinnerThree of us for birthday dinner -- special service, delicious meals with special touches.

The smoked lobster was delicious - although a bit pricey for the amount of lobster.
1. Food could have been hotter - both appetizer and main dishes were lukewarm
2. I added comment in Open Table that it was my wife's birthday. I reminded the restaurant when I confirmed the reservation the day before. Our desserts came without a candle on the cake (even though the Maitre D said "happy birthday" to my wife when we arrived - worse was that right after her dessert came, at another table, a dessert came with a candle. Poor communication for a restaurant that is truly for a special occasion!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolutely stunning viewAn absolutely stunning view and delicious food! Wine list is very detailed with many choices. Only downsides were no raw bar menu (aside from oysters on the 1/2, which were fabulous), and waitress insisted on ordering our entire meal all at once. We were discouraged from ordering apps and waiting for entrees. Would absolutely love to go back in the summer.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI have also booked an eventI have also booked an event on your 2nd floor about a year ago, and it was excellent.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI look forward to this gemI look forward to this gem for fresh, innovative seafood every trip to Boston.
