Legal Sea Foods - Long Wharf
Very good experienceIt was our fisrt dinner in Boston and we enjoy a lot. Table was prepared when we arrived, and the wairtress was very nice and explain everything very well. It was avaible the menucard in spanish (goog point for us). Lobster was delicious, and with good size.
Having dinner here was a success.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGenerally goodThe striped bass I had was to die for and so was the chocolate mousse parfait. Our waiter was very attentive. The only downside was a screaming child at the next table which, in addition to the overall noise, made it difficult to chat comfortably.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! Would go back everyday!Fresh and delicious sea food at a very reasonable price!
Good bottle of wine also at a very reasonable price.
The smoked salmon was pure delight.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMalways deelishalways great food - fish is cooked to a T; servers are outstanding; too cold to sit outside, so we moved inside and the servers were so accommodating. The wood grilled choices are excellent and we loved the presentation in the Chinese take-out box6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything you expectWent with a friend from out of state at 6PM on a 90-degree Friday. Place was hopping, but our server never missed a beat. I simply asked about a different combo from what was shown on the menu; she came back with full details for a special order that was just what I wanted. The food was, of course, just right. A nice Australian Shiraz was recommended and much enjoyed. Though it was busy, and my friend and I spent an hour talking after the meal, the staff didn't rush us out; really appreciated that.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch....needed a nice place to bring an out-of-town co-worker....we went for lunch (made reservations) and had a great meal. The prices were more reasonable than I expected. The food and service were both exceptional!! Nice job - thanks!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbienceIt was a bit loud for my taste, but not excessive. A great place to celebrate with my family.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHilary's visit from EnglandWe had appitizers and a salad for dinner. Tried several. Calamari, oysters, polenta, and Ceasar.

Fantastic food and service.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive and enjoyableNot an every day type of place for most people, but for giving a visitor a good send off, or welcome, or celebrating good news, this place is great.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SeafoodHad a noon, then moved it to 12:45 because we were running late and ended up showing up at 12:20. The place was packed but we were seated right away. This was a very pleasant surprise. Then we got our food and everything was good. We got the lobster bake and shared it with 4 people and it was moore than enough. Mom got the seafood casserole and she said it was really good too. Only thing I would really complain about is at some point our server was nowhere to be seen and we all needed refills. Other than that it was a great experience."5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls weekend - perfect!!!Fabulous food...amazing service. We made reservations and sat right away. Everything we ordered was amazing and they were incredibly attentive and super friendly. One of the best dining experiences I've had!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood fresh seafood. Not theGood fresh seafood. Not the fanciest preparation, but good. Flounder Imperial quite good. Service is always great. Chocolate pudding cake is to die for.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!Ate there twice on my 3 day trip to Boston! once personally and also entertained a client for lunch.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fresh seafoodWe went here to celebrate our son's college graduation for dinner. We had crab cakes, fresh wood-grilled haddock and a lobster. Fish was excellent! Lobster was super fresh. The crab cakes were good but not great. Always had oysters - raw. Very tasty. We have never had a bad meal at Legal. Very good service too. This location is crowded so that was the only downside but it did not hamp0er service.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had my son's college graduationWe had my son's college graduation dinner at Long Wharf. Service was excellent we all enjoyed our meals and the waiter was very attentive. Would definitely recommend, may be a bit pricey but we enjoyed for a special occasion.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable but far betterLegal Seafoods at Long Wharf, 101 State Street, exceeded our already high expectations. They took us in immediately with our Open Table reservation, seated us with a charming waiter named Rick, then did everything right: the seafood was excellent, the menu offered great choices, the scallops were amazing, and Rick has apparently learned everything there is to know about seafood in his ten years at Legal. The timing of service was right, nothing was pushed on us, and Rick was there to get us what WE wanted, and the menu was just a guide. It was a beautiful night for college graduation. Have the bon-bons for dessert.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatBeen coming here for at least 10 years and always have had a great meal with great service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation nightI made a reservation for 10 people for the special occasion of my graduation because I knew there is usually a long wait (at least 1 hr) on weekend nights. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. We ordered the Rhode Island style calamari to start and a couple bottles of moscato which was fresh and light. Even the bread rolls are fresh and tasty. I shared the filet, shrimp and scallop dish with my significant other. I definitely recommend it and the Boston Creme Pie for dessert! It was noisy but that is to be expected since everyone loves the food!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation lunchI made a reservation for a gratuation lunch. The day of I had to call and make is a little later from 1245 to 1 115 and the vocie on the other end was very rude and hung up on me before I could even say by. When we got there at about 1245 I though maybe our table would have been ready since we were there at the original time but we waited about 10 20 minutes which was no big deal at all cause the food like always was amazing!!! The food was so great and the apps and bread per usual were out of this world, but out server was less than out of this world. Server was slow and not friendly at all and hits were very rude and not helpful. All in all we had a great time but drinks need to come before apps and meal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeAlthough they are all over town, the location of this one is amazing, near many other activities.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, good foodArrived early for a reservation, and were seated immediately although it was busy. The service was very good, but it was very loud. The food was good, but not as good as we were lead to believe. We wanted to love the clam chowder, but we enjoyed what we had in the Quincy Market more. It wasn't bad - nothing was bad - but not the best.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dining in BostonWe have a dinner on Mother's day, the food was excellent and supprised the service on that busy day of the year was very good. I would come back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service TeamMy 1 year old was having a tough day but your team literally did everything they possibly could to help. Very helpful staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's day lunchI will start by saying in the end we had a very enjoyable time, but this restaurant was completely overwhelmed by the afternoon Mother's day lunch.
When I got on the highway heading in to Boston from the South Shore it was nearly a parking lot from Randolph into the City - I realized that the 45 minutes I had allowed to get into the city was not going to be enough. I called the restaruant to let them know I was going to be about 15 minutes late. When I arrived they had given away my table becuase they said I didn't call. I told them I did call and the hostess gave the other host a guilty look. They got me a nice table in about 10 minutes after my arrival.
My wife loves their baked stuffed - it never disappoints, waiters were excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Family Brunch or Lunch SpotLegals's just knows how to do it right: fresh seafood, good service an a fun vibe! Reliable and fun. Great for out of town guests.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunchWe went for my daughters 15th birthday, mother/daughter lunch alone. The appetizer was great. The lunch took a little long to come out (backed -up we were told) but it was worth the wait. I had the seafood casserole. It was very creamy and good. THe waiter was not hurried or rushed. He was very polite.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Order what YOU wantGreat food and for the most part great service. The only negative thing I'd have to say is our waiter really tried to "push" us towards some food items and wines. His recommendations were of course the more expensive option to what we were originally trying to order. I gave in to his request to get the more expensive wine. I stuck to what I wanted for food. I'm sure the clam chowder is amazing as it is world famous, but I knew we didn't need that much food and had to refuse it at least twice.
Other than that the waiter was great and it was a wonderful experience. Make a reservation!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood QualityThe waitress was excellent. The food was high quality, prepared simply.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. TheThe food was very good. The only drawback for me was the intense traffic to get there and the price for parking was very expensive.
35.00 for 90 min.
I would not come back because of the cost of parking.
I would try your other restaurant that is out of town. I don't know if you have to pay for parking there also5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!There were so many outstanding choices it was hard to decide what to order. We chose the Woodgrill Sampler and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, our waiter, Alex, was outgoing and professional and was attentive to our requests. He helped to make the atmosphere fun as well. Definitely a place we would go to again when we visit Boston again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food, excellent servicegood food, excellent service and reasonable prizes.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation Lunch DeliciousThree of us had a wonderful graduation lunch recently. The food was outstanding. The waiter was great. The service was fast and the water glasses always full. The prices were reasonable. We sat by a window looking out at the harbor, which was nice. And it was warm, which was a relief because the temperature had dipped 20 degrees from the previous day, and it was windy. My only complaints are the noise and loud/jarring music.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten FreeWonderful Gluten Free Menu!!

It was overall a 9 out of 10 experience.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was quite commendable.Food was quite commendable. My only minor complaint was there were only 4 shrimp (although large) on the stuffed shrimp dinner entree and I felt it was short one or two for a dinner portion. We dined atb7:00 on a Saturday and as expected it was crowded. The noise was a bit more than I would have liked and I attribute it to the tables places close together. Not unbearable but noisier than I would have liked.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great andThe service was great and the food was terrific.

We were seated in the dining room initially but it was so dark and dingy looking that I asked to be put up in the "lounge/bar" area.
