A word from Legal Sea Foods - White Plains
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Our restaurant is located in the heart of downtown White Plains because we know that Westchester residents love seafood. Legal Sea Foods is located on the ground floor of the City Center complex. Guests may choose to eat in our dining room or make waves in our lounge. Our patio seats are a popular lure for those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker. We’ve received a boatload of accolades including being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Legal Sea Foods - White Plains reviews from OpenTable diners
  • After we received our drinks
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIP
    Dined on 11/29/2013
    After we received our drinks we were informed the restaurant would be closing at the end of Dec. & their stock was being depleted so they were very short on tap beers , bottle of wine. The seafood casserole was listed with several seafood items, but only had shrimp. The worst part was the tails were all left on!

    To start with we had a party of seven and there was no Lobster available at 8pm on a Saturday night in a seafood restaurant, the service was TERRIBLE the drinks were wrong several times, At one point the waiter said you can tell the difference between the brands of liquor. the waiter also spilled oil on one of my guests.This TERRIBLE service after spending $700 dollars for dinner.

    Service was very poor. We had a problem with one of our meals and we could not locate our waiter for 20 minutes. A second glass of wine ordered during our salads showed up when we were almost finished with our entrees. Eventually, the manager brought over the missing portion of the entree, but he was not very pleasant or apologetic. We spent allot of money on a disappointing meal.

    Whats not to love. The menu had plenty of choices for everyone's taste. The service was great and the waiter had plenty of suggestions to help us select a variety of items to please us all. We will definitely be going back again. It was a last minute decision to go out to dinner of Father's Day and no one was dissappointed.

    My wife is always very specific, do not crack lobster, they cracked the lobster. So she sent it back and of course that throws off the flow of the meal. I am quite sure the chef did not listen to the waitress. The waitress was excellent.

    We're definitely not fans of chains and the decor is a little generic, but the food was very solid - the clam chowder is quite well-known and really is top-notch. Tuna was good, crabcake combo was nice and the desert was good. Wine list reasonably priced and well-curated. We'd go again if we're in the area

  • UNHAPPY BIRTHDAY DINNER!!!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/16/2013
    I have never written a review before but I feel that I should do it this time. This was my birthday dinner party with my family. I made resavations just to make sure that the wait would be minimum. I was pleased with the wait and the services we received. But once we were seated that is where it went down hill. First let me tell you that five out of six guests ordered shrimps with fries and to wait an hour. This is unexcpital. To wait that long was unthinkable. The waitress seemed uninterested and some what bothered. We needed water and was told to ask anyone that we see if she is not around. The food was ok but how could you get fried shrimps and fries wrong. Just to let you know the fries were very salty. I would not go back
