Went to restaurant with a group of 10. Booked on short notice using your app. Restaurant was packed and we were taken right in. Our server was great! All dinners and deserts were very good!

LSF is one of those great restaurants that always offers a sure thing. Certainly, it's quaintness is gone and has been replaced by an upscale decor and tweaked menu. The food is very good and the menu offers exactly what you would expect from LSF. It has the standards plus many new offerings that appeal to a more sophisticated palate. The restaurant was packed and everyone was happy. We have always enjoyed a meal there knowing that the food will be great! Highly recommend for big tables or occasions.

No trip to Boston is complete without coming here.

Great food and good value
Only complaint was that our server seemed to be in a rush to get us out of there - but otherwise great, fresh fish that was perfectly prepared.

Good for the most part
My mother and I went to Legals on Mother's Day. The noise level was to be expected and it was a little busy. Our server was okay. She was running back and forth, seemed a bit disorganized and, while I understand it was busy, we did not feel that she was our waitress but a chicken running around with her head cut off. She did redeem herself a little with the entree and told the staff to divide our order into two meals without us having to ask. We took the dessert to go and the chef has changed for the Boston Creme Pie. It just doesn't taste the same - it's not as good. Overall though, my mother had a wonderful experience and we went for her, so that's what counts.

Food nice - service can do better
Waitress showed not once to refill wine glasses, waiting time for coffee and desert not acceptable. Coffee served first, desert 10 minutes later.

Always good food...
Whatever LSF we've been to, the food is always great.

Great food but too loud.
Legal seafood is one of my favorites. The food doesn't disappoint.
I was there for graduation celebration and it was a bit too loud for my taste.
One more thing. I used to love the bluefish at legal. Too bad they took it off the menu.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
High Quality Fish/Seafood
The fish at Legal is always very fresh. I had the mixed assorted grill and everything was perfect; the scallops, shrimp, salmon, and swordfish. The vegetable sides were fresh and simply prepared. The wines that our waiter helped us select were excellent. I had a 7pm Sat. reservation and was taken to our table immediately upon arrival and served promptly.

A constant Favorite each time I come to Boston; partly because it is a very good restaurant, partly because I love lobster. Make an OpenTable reservation and you will get right in, even if you come early. Good selection of local fresh oysters. The lobster comes with two sides, but some of the sides, like the veggies, are not listed on the menu. Sauteed spinach was excellent. And now for the lobster....I ordered a medium size...large enough to have sufficient meat to make the cracking and the picking worth while, small enough so as not to be too sinewy and chewy (sp.?). The tail and the two claws presented a lot of meat, but the tail was a bit tough...might have been an older lobster. Nonetheless, a great meal.

I am never happy eating out....but
This was nothing complicated which is why it was good.
Good service, good food. Oysters were yummy as was the clam chowder and mains. It's a chain but at least it's consistent!!
Only thing is that some of the tables are super close together...might share a conversation with your neighbours depending on where you are sitting.

GREAT CLEAN QUALITY SEAFOOD...
THE SEFOOD WAS AWSOME,VERY FRESH..I ENJOYED MYSELF
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great dinner
We started with the shrimp coctail appetizer - 5 jumbo sized shrimp, cold and tasty with a cocktail sauce that was just right on tank/bite. I had the 10 oz filet mignon - cooked perfectly (med rare) mild seasoning that did not distract from the flavor of the beef. My wife had the steamers app as her meal - some very large steamer and quite a few of them at that. Our server was exceptional - just the right time between courses and attentive to us throughout our dinner.

Went here for a small family
Went here for a small family gathering and both the service and food were Outstanding!
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect location and something for everyone on the menu. We had a lovely waitress and our order came perfect even with all our special changes. The table for 6 was ready when we arrived and a good meal was had by all. Key Lime pie was delish...
6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bar is the best
Place is consistent, with great food. I work in the building, but definately better to sit at the bar then go into the huge dining room
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
we were treated like VIPs
Excellent meal. Servers accommodated substitutions very pleasantly. Would go again.

Great food, lively atmosphere!
My husband and I love this restaurant, especially when we attend Boston POPS concerts each week during the spring and at Christmas. The location is convenient to Symphony Hall, the atmosphere is lively and the food is fantastic! The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. We especially love the muscles, steamers and grilled fish dishes. Service is appropriately fast but not rushed, thereby allowing us to enjoy a pleasant meal at 6PM and still make the 8PM concert on time. This week, we dined with our adult children (including a non-seafood eater) and two 9 year old grandchildren. It was a perfect setting for a multigenerational dining experience. The free validated parking is a huge plus.

Overall great night. Service
Overall great night. Service was wonderful. Waiter was very attentive. Entrees were all delicious. Highly recommend the crab cake dinner.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently Great Food and Service
We sat at the bar which is relaxed and lots of tvs showing sports. Bartenders are always friendly and offer suggestions on what to order, what are their favorites, etc. They were having a special on oysters and you can always expect that the quality is going to be good and the seafood and fish fresh. I am a fussy eater and always one to change things - preparation, side dishes, etc. and the staff there are always willing to make the changes and the meal comes out the way I wanted which sometimes doesn't happen at other restaurants where a special request throws the kitchen staff off their stride.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
...as the name suggests! Good atmosphere even though the restaurant is inside the mall and good wine list. We enjoyed all our food (and wine!)
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Casual seafood dining at its best
Great chain of resturants and most chains are not. Fresh food, great menu, excellent service, and don't miss the crab cakes!!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten free and kids
Our group of ten required a gluten free menu for one adult and one child. The menu was varied, the GF rolls are great! All of the children enjoyed their choices and each of the adults had different choices that were top notch. We are mostly Bostonians and must have eaten at LSF 200 times in our lives and are never disappointed. Our guests from Michigan were delighted too. The gluten free menu is important for our family, thank you. We will return.

Mall Locale But Awesome Food!
Everything we ate and drank was excellent! Our drinks - 2 different types of Manhattans - were great and the meal of New England Clam Chowder (one of my best ever) and Crab Cakes (THE BEST ever filled with real crab) and finally the assorted sampler of grilled fish (tuna, salmon, swordfish, and trout) melted in our mouths. Awesome place...I even took a mail order form home!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was awesome.....their clam chowder is fabulous.

Staff was incredible in meeting
Staff was incredible in meeting the needs of a guest with food alergies. Waitress, Manager ensured guest would not get any food with nuts, etc. In addition, another guest had blister from all the walking on fourth of July and staff brought a band aid. Meal was served quikly and cooked to perfection.

Delicious food impeccable service
This is a great place for people watching, with large windows facing the throngs in the Prudential Center Mall.
We enjoyed the atmosphere, the perfectly prepared seafood, and the excellent, attentive service from our waitress, Emily.

Great Seafood and Service
The best seafood in Boston. Service was outstanding - Bobby is an outstanding server!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good. The server was excellent. She helped us celebrate a birthday when I had brought cupcakes. She was very attentive. I found the noise level to be high. It was difficult to talk to each other at times. Otherwise it was a great experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good choiices, even without French toast or pancakes. Brioche bread toasted is special, and the American breakfast is huge. Fruit side is lovely, and service was excellent.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Seafood and Service
We had Jose and the service was excellent, the food fantastic, and overall it was a fantastic experience. Visiting from Canada its too bad we don't have an awesome chain like this in Ontario to replace some of the other chains that fail when it comes to serving fresh seafood.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The tomato and feta salad with watermelon basil vinaigrette was one of the most delicious things I ever ate.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Seafood and Service
Had the Mapleque oysters, and they were absolutely fabulous. Very fresh and flavorful. The service was spot on, and all are needs were attended. Thanks for a good experience!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for gluten-free!
They had an extensive gluten sensitive menu and were also accommodating to dairy sensitivity. They even provided gluten-free buns, which was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, and for once, I didn't feel like I was missing out while eating out. They even had gluten-free beer on the menu. We had small children with us, and the kids meal was excellent, and the setting was appropriate for children and we were seated in a nice spot where we didn't feel that we were disrupting others. We had a great dining experience. We don't dine out often between having the food sensitivities and young children, so this was a great treat!

Vacation in Boston
This was a really good restaurant. The food and the service were really good. We both ate the Crab Cake special and it was superb. I had the Calamari appetiser and that was also good. And the service was very efficient and friendly. Altogether I would really recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We ate there (family of 4)
We ate there (family of 4) before a Red Sox game. Food was very tasty. My 9 year old had a lobster dinner! How many places can you go where fresh steamed lobster is offered on the Childrens menu? The seafood was fresh, and the clam chowder was delicious. Very good--would definitely return next time in Boston.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the Lobster
We loved the awesome selection of oysters so much that we tried them all. The steamed lobsters were great too. I didn't want the meal to end!!!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great raw bar and service
We were in a meeting in Boston and visited almost everyday. Service and food was excellent, that is why we kept coming back,
Best lobster roll, freshest local raw oysters ,heavenly.

As always, perfect beginning
As always, perfect beginning prior the Red Sox game.

Spotty service but food hit the spo
Had a large group and needed a last minute table. The food lived up to the name though service was spotty at best. Water glasses were never refilled throughout the meal. Plates were cleared while still in use. Any request took 15 minutes to fulfill. That being said my salmon was cooked perfectly.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great selection for oysters and gluten food awareness and availability
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
After the Duck Tour
After our Duck Tour (also recommended) we arrived early for our reservation, no problem whatsoever. Staff accommodated a grilled shrimp and scallop combo that was not on the menu. That combo and the salmon were both delicious. Try the broccoli and cheese side dish. We ordered off the lunch menu and had plenty to eat. The Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake dessert was delightfully sinful.

Great Pre-Game Dinner
Seafood is top-notch. Highest Quality. Very good oysters. Crab cakes are excellent. Great staff.

Our server Nick was amazing and the food was delicious. Everything is always cooked perfectly.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we were greeted, the experience was delightful. The waitstaff was engaging. The food was served promptly. Our every need was solicited and met. At the end the manager delivered our bill and expressed his appreciation.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I can't remember our server's name but she was engaged, polite, and discrete (came to the table the perfect amount of time so we were attended to but our conversation was not interrupted). She wasn't pushy for drinks but was attending. Also, we were in those awkward two person booths where the server has about 2 inches between us and the table next to us and she managed to get to us without putting her back-end on the table next to us or leaning awkwardly over my husband - I'm not sure how, but she made it work. The food was perfect, the service was great, and it made for a nice, relaxing start to an all-to-rare datenight with the husband.

Most enjoyable lunch
I had cod filet/fish and chips which was delicious and cooked just right. I also had the lobster bisque which was excellent, very nicely seasoned. The clam/fish chowder which my husband had was also excellent. Service was excellent as well. I would definitely return. The online reservation service was easy to use and it was a comfort to see that all the information had been received and our table was waiting for us when we arrived.
