A bit pricey!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable but expensiveWe went on Mother's Day. It was packed, of course. Even though I had made a reservation well in advance for 7 people, we had to wait at least 15 minutes for the table and the receptionist was snippy with me when I went to ask how much longer the wait was. Aside from that, we love it there. Once seated, we did have excellent service. Food was great as usual. Kids menu very healthy serving both fruit and vegetable with the entree.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TreatSeafood is excellent - we had the shellfish, seafood casserole and mixed seafood grill and mussels in sauce as an appetizer Grilled tuna and salmon were a little dry. It might be a good idea to specify medium rare. Everything was delicious, including the sides. Good wine list. On a busy Mother's Day afternoon the wait staff was friendly and efficient, wishing all the Moms a happy mother's day. Although it was a bit hectic due to the special occasion, the noise level in the booths was low - we still had a sense of privacy because of the well-thought out dining layout and good sound proofing. We had a tasty, relaxing and enjoyable family dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways love legals, with groupAlways love legals, with group of gals or the whole family.

For this, we were very grateful.Legals is one of the safest places for me to eat. Many restaurants are not nearly as accommodating.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCame here with my friend KatieCame here with my friend Katie on Saturday since we hadn't been here before and she is visiting from Utah so I wanted to show her seafood. It was great! Our server (Kevin I think... tall skinny guy.) was really helpful with the menu since we didn't really know what we wanted, and his white wine suggestion with the oysters was great. Everything was prompt, and I liked the little touches in the service and the overall friendliness of the staff. I got the crab cakes and LOVED them, and my friend liked her lobster roll. The place was overall pretty noisy though especially for an afternoon, but I guess that's not the restaurant's fault. We'll definitely come back to try out more of the wine list and hopefully we can request the same server.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat basic seafood. ChoicesGreat basic seafood. Choices are varied and prepared well in a basic way. No fancy artwork on the plates, etc. A reliable seafood experience that can become a regular event.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningGood experience as always, was a bit loud in the bar area, but not overwhelming.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and the serviceWonderful food and the service was terrific! Had a nice kid's menu as well for my two children. I made the reservation that day, and was pleased there was still a table for that time slot. However, our table was right next to the entrance/ waiting area and was a bit noisy and cold. Overall, was a very nice dinner!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I dined atMy husband and I dined at this location recently for the first time and it lived up to the quality dining experience we've come to expect and love from LSF. Our wait was surprisingly short for what seemed like a busy night. The service was top-notch. Our waiter Kyle was very charming and professional, offering terrific suggestions of his favorite menu items and great wines to compliment them. Being long time patrons of Legals, it was nice to deviate from our usual menu choices and try something new.
A manager stopped by our table and offered a small appetizer before the meal which was nice. The noise level was a bit loud as others have mentioned, which is common with busy restaurants. Overall a great time and we hope to return soon!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI always enjoy my meal atI always enjoy my meal at Legals. This time our server seemed to lose track of us towards the end of our meal, leaving empty plates on the table for about 15 minutes and taking another 15 to get desert and coffee out. It was not very busy, the waitress just seemed distracted or perhaps a bit inexperienced. Not rude or terrible service, just inexplicably slow this time. I will go back to Legals many more times.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMTom was great!!The food was excellent and arrived at a timely manner. Our server, Tom, was great, polite, helpful in every way!Would recommend him to anyone to any of my friends who go there for dinner. I cannot say enough about him!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIn spie of a large crowd,In spie of a large crowd, our server made us feel as if we were his only table! Large crowd on Easter Sunday afternoon draws in people of all ages; I must say that I was impressed a their ability to keep children setled and quiet; many older couples and multigenerational families...they must be doing something right. Oh, by the way, the food as always was terrific.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCame for a special EasterCame for a special Easter treat with various family members (a party of 8). We all loved the food, the presentation was very nice, it arrived after a reasonable time, and our waiter was just great, took care of various small issues and made great suggestions, despite being very busy. Only difficulty--it was very loud, especially in the room where they put us (special request due to hearing issues.) The echoes made sounds even more difficult to interpret. It was kind of them to try, though. A wonderful outing.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. However,The food was excellent. However, the decaf coffee my wife got afterward was undrinkable. The service was reasonably good, but there were several delays in getting dessert. The biggest reason we won't be back except for VERY special occasions is the high prices.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI wish the waiters would askI wish the waiters would ask before they take the plates away. we had someone who was eating by themselves for the last 10mins - and so felt rushed...3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMwe were all happy with ourwe were all happy with our meals!! Prompt seating with our online reservation (and I had called in 2 minutes before making the online reservation and they told me I would have to wait until 9 pm for a table for 4 (put name in for that), than saw that online you could do a reservation, saw they had a few openingins one at 8:30 booked it and it was confirmed. not sure why able to get in earlier online instead of a call in time?3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great.

My server Meghan was attentive and easy with our party of 7 which included my grandmother who sometimes has trouble hearing. The food was wonderful. My sister and boyfriend had a steelhead trout special with sweet pea risotto and they loved it. My tuna sashimi with wasabi cream was out of this world. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back to this location.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable seafood. GoodDependable seafood. Good service.

Our waiter was very good. The back room where we were was tucked away from the noisy bar scene. My only complaint was the the table was too close to the next and they could have spread us out as there appeared to be room.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredibly gluten-free friendlyIncredibly gluten-free friendly ~ A wonderful menu with thoughtful, considerate waitstaff!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to meet and haveGreat place to meet and have lunch, food was great,did not rush us out.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery reliable and high quality.Very reliable and high quality. What a chain restaurant should be.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening here!!Very busy on a Tues night....so glad we made reservation 8-) My husband & I started by sharing a plate of delicious blackened tuna sashimi w/ seaweed salad. For entrees, he had the wood grilled arctic char & I had wood grilled trout. We both enjoyed them very much. They were both cooked to perfection & simply seasoned. One of our side dishes was sherry mushrooms & that was buttery delicious. We also finished off a bottle of red wine. Can't really remember what it was, but for $35, it was pretty decent tasting & my pocket didn't hurt. I also have to acknowledge our waitress, Ashley. She was exceptionally awesome! As I had mentioned earlier, it was very busy, but she always had time to make sure our wine glasses were never empty. Thanks!2/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
