Not the best food or service from the three Legal Seafood restaurants I visited during my stay in NY.

Legal Seafood is consistently excellent. The menu is classic, and offers everything a good seafood restaurant should. Fish is fresh and expertly prepared. The service is attentive but relaxed. All these things combine to create an excellent dining experience. I don't often write reviews on OT, but Legal is such a great place to eat that I had to review it.

I like to eat healthy, so I come here for fresh, delicious grilled fish. The sides are very good. I particularly enjoyed the wine tastings they have, and the dessert was good as well. I've been to this restaurant about 4-5 times, and I expect to return.

One of the best sea food restaurants in the area..The food is always fresh and the service staff is attentive. Reservations are honored and suggested on week-ends. I would like to see different varity of potato which has been eliminated from the menu.

I was part of a group of 10 people. Overall the experience was nice. We were seated on time and an attentive server. The only issue was our food was not timed properly. My dish clearly sat for awhile. Half of it was barely lukewarm and the cheese had congealed. Stick with the fish on a wood plank. Those dishes came out perfectly.

Food and service were very good. Have been there many times as we like seafood and have never been disappointed. We will continue to go there, we so go ion Sundays as the mall is closed and parking is easier.

Although we like the restaurant, their lobsters were much more expensive than we had the previous night at the Palm in NYC, thus we ate stuffed shrimp. and crab cakes, both of which were very good. Restaurants in a New Jersey shopping center should be less expensive than NYC.

Our server Belle was outstanding! She gave fantastic recommendations and was very accommodating.

Fresh fish, expert preparation, and great staff! I must say that each time we have eaten here has been enjoyable. The wood grill makes that beautiful fish taste so great. The staff is friendly, knowledgable about the menu and very accomodating.

First time here and we came for fathers day. The place was packed but we got served on time and they were ok with the kids. We had a wonderful meal everything was cooked to perfection. Would definetely come again.
6/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice comfortable place, kids friendly. The dishes were very good, fish was fresh. Nice kids menu with grilled or fried fresh fish.
I can't wait to go back again!

I have worked in customer
I have worked in customer service for nearly 15 years, and this restaurant's staff is exemplary at it. The staff is quite knowledgeable on the various wines (which they have quite a selection) and the right pairing with the foods. Also, they are very sympathetic to any dietary needs. I have been there before, and will continue to guest there.

We went here on a Wednesday around noon for my daughter's graduation. They were very helpful and the food was great. My one daughter has celiac disease and they have a great gluten free menu.
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
we recently took a friend out to dinner here for her birthday and everything was excellent. the service was superb and the food was delicious! i don't eat seafood and got the chicken dish. normally, seafood places have it on the menu just to have it and its not really that great but this chicken dish was so delicious! perfectly cooked with great flavor. i definitely recommend this restaurant - the prices are fair and the food is great.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
we loved the restaurant, food was great, never rushed, service was wonderful.
but the location in the mall was horrible, parking took 15min to find a space.....
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
A gem at the mall
Both food and service consistently excellent. We go there on a regular basis.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent gluten free menu!
As my daughter and husband both have Celiac, it is hard to find quality restaurants that totally understand how to safely prepare gluten free options. We were very impressed with the large selection, so many gluten free things to choose from and everything was absolutely delicious! They even brought fresh baked Gluten free rolls to the table, nice touch! We will be back again for sure! Thanks!

This restaurant never failed me, always excellent food and service. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends.

Good food, great service!
Not too busy a night so we had impeccable service. Food was very good too. A little loud even though not totally full. Good for a family meal and we had shopping to do at the mall. Very accommodating when asking for veggies instead of pasta or any other concerns. Gluten free menu available.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every dish was delicious... The fish was fresh, full of flavor and very eye pleasing!
Service was absolutely top notch, Carmelo in particular! From the hostess, the intermezzo compliments of the chef, to the low key birthday candle in the dessert (thanks for not singing). My wife, 2 daughters (6 and 1 years old), and I never once felt rushed nor needed to rush the staff.

Done it again!
Once again the staple to Boston culture does nothing short of excel past its predecessors ! I've tried legalseafoods in Boston at several different variations to their original concept, Nj takes it a step further. The most personable and welcoming service in Bergen and certainly at the mall, legalseafoods showed me once again what upper echelon service and pinpoint accurate cuisine really is about! Fantastic and a joyous time from every angle! Our server Raquel is nothing short of perfection!

great for a first date
great staff that knows when to leave you alone to get to know one another.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Fabulous Group Experience!
Apps, calamari & Ahi tuna a MUST! Wonderful for a group. Scallops and the wild salmon were wonderful dishes. Other faves included stuffed shrimp & shrimp casserole. This is the place for seafood dining. Wait staff very attentive and professional. Never kept us waiting! We were seated immediately and the hostess couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating! A great place to go for special occasions!

Great family dinner!
We stopped here for dinner on our way home from the shore. I booked a table on my smartphone,which was super convenient! The waitress was a pleasure and checked on us frequently. We have three kids under ten and each of them was very happy with the experience. My 8 year old ordered chicken fingers which were the only negative in an otherwise great meal. They smelled and tasted of maple syrup which the chef told our waitresses due to celery root! Not a typical kid-menu ingredient. Other than that, all the food was delicious and we had a fabulous time!

Excellent fresh oysters! VERY good trout and swordfish. Tried the new upgraded veggies -1) very good root veggies, 2) kale good but needs smaller pieces, 3) chard OK but needs work. Excellent Blood orange sorbet. Good coffee.

Best LSF ever been to. Menu was as expected but service was amazing. Our server was delightful. Was attentive without hovering. She had a smile at all times even when we asked to speak to the manager. We complimented the manager on his staff, their teamwork and awareness. (One server noticed my husband's hand in the air and asked if he could help. Realizing the phone was up there he sent him to the best place to shazam in the restaurant.) The food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. My lobster bake was tender and "just caught" My husbands's filet mignon was the most tender he ever had and he just loved the roasted root vegetables. The beer (Sam Octoberfest) was so fresh and perfectly cold. Only correction was it was a bit dark in the room.

Service, Food Keeps LSF Afloat
Welcoming, witty, and wonderful hostess gave us a great first impression of this Boston-based restaurant. We have never been to the Paramus location, but the waiter wowed us with his knowledge, his personality, and his attentive service. From the appetizer to the dessert, the food was fit for foodies and beyond, with a menu that's more than seafood.

Excellent service and good food
We had excellent service during this visit and the food was very good.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
my server was a lovely young lady i believe her name was Raquel. she was very friendly and made some great recommendations and suggestions. i was not sure what i wanted but she suggested some apps i got and ended up loving!! the managers were great as well, they came and checked on me and my guest to make sure everything came out good and we were satisfied. it was a bit pricey but worth it. cant wait to go back!
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Had a waitress that knew how to accommodate patrons; very friendly, knowledgeable and familiar with menu items. Atmosphere was suitable for a casual lunch and did not notice any distracting noise or conversations from other patrons or staff. Food was satisfactory and would definitely recommend to others. Also liked the bonus of the taste of butternut soup, complimentary for booking online!

Went here for a 7 year anniversary. A little pricey but totally worth it!

The restaurant manager personally
The restaurant manager personally delivered a special, free course of delicious Butternut Squash soup, which he said was a perk for people who book on Open Table.

my wife's birthday
It was one of the best birthday dinners we've had in a long time. Our waitress was delightful and caring.
We went home in a very happy mood.

Great food and service
They simply do not get it wrong. Superb fish just as you ordered it. The manager was very attentive to our nut allergy and the waitress was perfect. Wish there was more parking but that is the hazard of the mall. Love this restaurant.

It is good seafood served well and reasonably priced. Enjoyed the fresh clams and the New England chowder is very good, I have it every time I go there. Also enjoy whole steamed lobster.

Awesome experience. I live 70 miles away and always make a point to eat there when I am in the area. This was probably my 6th visit and it never disappoints!
