    Cynthia was our server and was very pleasant, attentive & expedient! Our drink glasses were never empty. It was a very nice meeting spot for adult fanfare (we had relatives who has just come in from Hawaii) to dine and NOT feel rushed although the meal price was a bit high. Food was very good & we were treated with a complementary appetizer because of making the reservation on line.

    Legal's is my favorite east coast restaurant for stuffed lobster. Probably eaten it 20 times in the Boston area, D.C, and Atlanta. This was my least favorite food experience of all the locations.

    Nicely greeted by hostess and seated at our favorite booth. Shrimp and garlic meal very disappointing as it was far too salty. Salt overpowered even the garlic, so much so I couldn't eat more than a few bites. Salt aftertaste lasted in my mouth until the following day. Restaurant did reduce the price of the meal by 50% and also offered to replace the dish. Having eaten here many times in the past, this was really the first poor meal so we will have to try again another time.

    We both love good & fresh seafood, so there is no better place for great seafood that this restaurant. We are also hard of hearing and the sound levels in the dinning room were great and the music that was playing was just loud enough, not overpowering. That is important to for a fine dining experience. Our waitress was lovely and very knowledgeable about the dishes we asked about. Our meals were delish, served in a timely manner, and brought hot to the table..a lovely dinner for our anniversary, and thank you!! Mr & Mrs. George Stolasz

    When I go out to eat, I simply looking for great ambiance, great food, a smart friendly server and excellent food. I like to eat quickly rather than spend the night having a "dining experience". Our server met us promptly and was very efficient and friendly throughout. Kudos to her. My wife and daughter both ordered the Seafood Casserole with cream sauce. It's a large serving for one. They both loved it. I ordered the Swordfish Piccata. The swordfish was served as two smaller thin breaded pieces - hence, piccata. The taste was fine, I thought is a bit lacking in flavor and a bit soggy. The linguini, served with lemon, capers and maybe a bit of broccoli, was genuinely incredible. It was one of the best pasta sides I've ever had anywhere.

    The service was outstanding. From the hostess to the waitress to the manager, very attentive. Food was awesome as always and the bruschetta appetizer on the house, as thank you for choosing Legal for lunch was a great touch. The outside décor was different from any legal that I have eaten at including back at Inman Square. My guests from the Midwest were very impressed for their first ever Legal meal and I am sure not their last from the comments. The bar is set high for the other Legal restaurants to match Warwick.

    LSF is fine dining with a neighborhood feel. The food is great and the variety of dishes assures that there's something for everyone. I entertain out of state customers at LSF and they always rave about the food and service. Be sure to make a reservation and ask for Sue as your server. You won't be disappointed.

    We were a bit disappointed with the quality of food compared in the past - it did not come up to my expectations especially we were celebrating our 20th anniversary. We also had dined in other legal seafoods restaurant in the Massachussetts area. However, the service was outstanding - our waiter Keith was super friendly,funny and attentive. The manager was visible and showed interest with the patrons.

    We have eaten at LSF many times and this is first time we were disappointed in the food. Re the appetizers: I sent back the fish chowder ( way too much cream); the stufies had too much filling and the salad was just okay. The entrees were good ( salmon, halibut, chicken ) but the side vegetables were all very bland. Waitress was excellent.

    We've been to Legal Seafood a few years ago for our anniversary celebration and haven't been there since because it is expensive but you really do get what you pay for, if you want fresh, great tasting seafood you have to be willing to dish out a pretty penny. But it's so worth it! And our waiter is outstanding! (Wish I could remember his name) I was too busy being hungry lol to remember it. Definitely, when you go to Legal Seafood you will not be disappointed!

    My recent visit to Legal Seafood was the best experience. first of all the ability to make a reservation on line helped since you cannot find a place last minute on a Saturday evening in Warwick to eat.I was happy to see this business flourishing but the numerous customers did not take away from our excellent service. ordered wood grilled wild caught Faroe Island Salmon with spinach and corn on the cobb. All of this was incredible in presentation and taste. Did I tell you I had the house salad of field greens with sunflower seeds on it?

The service is always fantastic. This time Sue was our waitress & she was not only efficient but also charming. We will continue to dine here & will keep recommending it to our friends. Thank you for another memorable experience!

    Our dining experience was wonderful. Because we reserved a table on open table, we got a free mini bruschetta appetizer. We both ordered baked stuffed lobster and it was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. The only complaint that I have is that it seemed like the lobster wasn't cleaned out as well as times we have gone in the last. There was some green mushy stuff in it that I know shouldn't have been in there, but we both just avoided it and are the food around it. The waitress was prompt and friendly. We choose Legal Seafood for special occasions and enjoy It every time!

    We dined at Legal Seafoods to celebrate the 17th birthday of my son, just after picking up his grandmother from the airport. My mother-in-law had a long day of travel delays, and welcomed the attentive service and relaxing atmosphere and excellent food to be able to enjoy her first night with us and celebrate. We appreciated the flexibility of reservations when her flight was delayed twice. It was a wonderful beginning to our visit and made my son feel special as well.

    Legal Seafood is consistently excellent, and this meal was no exception. The new clam cake and and chowder appetizer/small plant is outstanding. These are the best clam cakes I have ever eaten. Shellfish (oysters and cherrystones) were perfectly shucked and served. The service is always great, and our server this time was excellent and charming. The new desserts - salted caramel cake and strawberry pound cake were amazing. I love the lovely little tasting dish we get from Legal for booking through Open Table. Always a great experience at Legal in Warwick, RI.

    My family is allergic to gluten, dairy, and egg. The manager and our waitress worked together to make sure we were safe. We brought our own butter substitute and they melted it for our lobster. Both our waitress and the manager came to our table about half a dozen times to check to make sure we had everything we needed. The service was outstanding and we feel very safe eating there with all our different food allergies. The food was wonderful too. My daughter and I had the surf and turf and my husband had the Cioppino. The Cioppino sauce has dairy in it so, the manager said they could make it with the sauce from the fishermen's stew which is dairy free. My husband was still raving about it the day after. This was at the Warwick location.

    We patronize Legal a lot, usually in Boston or Warwick. Have always liked everything. This time was an exception. I'm a nut for clams (being from the midwest), so I ordered steamers, as I usually do. They were fresh, but a little undercooked. Some were translucent and very watery. Should have been left in the steamer a bit longer. Maybe it was the experience with the steamers, but the subsequent fried clam plate I didn't think was up to its usual. I hope that this was just and aberration, not the future of Legal. Management offered to make me another batch, but we were on a timeline, so I declined. The steamers were, however, taken off the bill.

    I dined at the Legal in Warwick Rhode Island (Mother's Day) and recently wrote a review expressing my disappointment in the management for not answering my requests for soy/almond milk for my coffee. I was quickly contacted by the corporate office and we first spoke in email and then it was followed up by a phone call from the corporate office to further discuss my requests. After an extensive conversation, I am very pleased to say that the corporate office has made the commitment to always have soy/almond milk available in their Warwick location and if I was planning to dine in any other location, the corporate office said they would go out and have it ready for me provided I used open table. This is customer satisfaction at its finest.

    Legal Seafood is always dependable for a good meal, but today's lunch was especially wonderful. First, the amus bouche we received as an Open Table guest is always creative. It was a shrimp/crab crisp with an Asian slaw and sesame seeds. The clam cake and chowder was wonderful and warming - mix of textures, great seasoning and satisfying. There was the freshest raw bar, with a wonderful mix of oysters and well-shucked cherry stones. Our server was lovely and efficient. Wish we had had room for dessert.
