Well done.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFood good, music terribleThe problem was the background music that was, well, very unpleasant. And we were told the restaurant had no control over the music that was played and there was nothing they good do about it "sometimes it is better, sometimes it is worse".5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentGreat oysters.

The appetizer sampler is great mix of their best. The seared tuna was my favorite while my companion enjoyed the crab cakes. We also indulged in a dozen raw oysters. My friend and I both are oyster fans and agreed these were the best we have ever had. No exaggeration here. They were clean and crisp, salty just the right amount, incredibly fresh tasting. Very impressive. We ordered the lobster and the grilled fish special. Both were thoroughly enjoyable. I will be back for sure and my companion said he is going to add Legal to his list of regular spots to take clients. Service was excellent, too. Ask for Opal if you go, she was great and very helpful. Thanks for a great time, Legal!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafoodI took my mother to LS for Mother's Day it was a nice experience. The service was good, nothing over the top, and the food was very good too. The only complaint would be the food seems to be a tad bit overpriced for what they are offering.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMJust okay!The food was very bland and pricey! Not what I exprected5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService and Food were Great!We had a very nice dinner while our son and daugther attended the Taylor Swift concert. We were right across the street from the Verizon Center and the setting, food and service was top notch. Highly recommended for all!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent staffI received a call to confirm a reservation I had made the week before; we were a few minutes late, but the sat us right away. The waitress was friendly and even change one person's order when she changed her mind. All that and the food was great, I highly recommend the clam chowder and crab cakes.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood seafoodGreat spot next to Verizon Center in D.C. Good seafood, good service! Reasonably priced for the location.

The waitress we had serving us was one of the best that I have ever encountered in the area. She was prompt, efficient, friendly and, attentive.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMStill best lobster rollJust great.

Nice mix of cheap and higher end wines.

They were attentive as well as timely. Food was delivered at an efficient rate of time and hot when delivered. I would recommend this spot for anyone wishing to have an excellent seafood dinner at a fair price. Blood Mary's were 5 star.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent. TheService was excellent. The halibut was perfect. My granddaughter had shrimp and pasta and it was a hit, and my husband had perch which he really enjoyed. We were made to feel welcome and felt like the restaurant was glad we were there. We love seafood and for a chain we were very pleasantly surprised at the service and quality. Great coffee too.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Fish PreparationIf you want to eat fish this is always a good place. You can virtually pick your fish and the method you want to have it cooked. One of us had Arctic Char wood grilled and the other sea bass baked. Both were perfectly done and a treat. The sides were also just right. If you want breaded crustaceans or other breaded things from the sea the place is OK but not as elegantly cooked as fish. Breaded anything cooked in boiling oil is pretty much the same anywhere as far as I am concerned. Come here for good cooking.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy eating thereAlways enjoy eating there before Caps games! The food is superb and the service fast.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food, greatConsistently good food, great service, and very allergen aware.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the restauranteWe went to the restaurante on a Wednesday night.

The server was great, and the meals were just as we hoped. They let us drink before and after, staying around pretty late. The vibe was just good. I had a special, very tasty.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winner when we areAlways a winner when we are in town, especially on Good Friday, although service was spotty because of crowds.

We were disappointed with the kids mac & cheese. Maybe kraft shouldn't be served at this upscale of a restaurant! My kid wanted to eat more of the cream of crab soup instead.
It would be nice if we could get a kid size soup instead of a giant bowl.
Staff was super.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPrior to CAPS game ... Great locatiMy son and I ate at this restaurant prior to a Captials game. Very convenient location. I had the seafood casserole and my son had stuff shrimp. The food was very good. Maynard was our waiter. This man was great. He had personality and was on time with everything from the appetizer through dessert. He even promised us the Capitals would win, which they did.
We requested and were seated in one of the window seats which was great for watching the sights on St. Patrick's Day.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pre Caps dining!Crab cakes are fabulous and so are the chocolate/ice cream bonbons! Service very speedy.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as Boston. AlwaysAs good as Boston. Always busy, but with a great staff to make the wait short. Food is well worth it.Open Table helped get in on a busy Friday evening.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent!This place has a consistently excellent experience. On this particular night there was a concert across the street and so they were extremely busy, but the experience was seamless. I was glad I made a reservation to avoid a long wait.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional service and veryExceptional service and very helpful with regard to food allergies.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne word: chowdah!The clams were served on a bed of ice, nice and chilled. Delicious. And they're opened nicely so they just slide off the shells.
Lobster is lobster. I mean, what's not to like? Yummm. Kind of pricey, though.
Chowder: Delicious! I mean seriously awesome and I'm a New Englander so I know my chowdahs. It's pretty filling, too. Next time (when my boss isn't paying!) I will probably just get a big bowl of chowder and be more than happy with that. So good!2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service & Great DrinksI'm very happy at how accommodating the service was. The drinks are awesome. It's a great place to grab good drinks with friends or family. The taste is consistent and that's an important factor when revisiting a favorite spot.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
