Great for seafood lovers
The food was very good but menu is limited if you don't love seafood. Only 2 items to chose from. Either steak or chicken. I think that could be expanded.

Relaxing reunion lunch
Wonderful lunch. Ambience was perfect. We were at table for three hours enjoying a reunion lunch. Best things about restaurant -- menu had calories for every item on menu. Thank you! And our single bill was sorted by waiter by each diner. So we easily knew how much each person owed. I'd never seen that before and thought it innovative and thoughtful of diners. Great idea.

All about fresh fish
We started to go to this chain many years ago, in Chestnut Hill. This is not Boston yet it is our go to place whenever we feel like good, fresh, reasonably priced fish. Easily accessible from the parking in the mall, always good service. I have had the ahi tuna appetizer for lunch and with their delicious rolls it is more than enough for me. We all like the plain trout a lot and the french fries are terrific. Their standard baked schrod is also one of our favorites.
And it is a five minute drive from home. What else can one ask.

Great food all the time
The crab cakes are to die for and the rolls -mmmmmm. The fish was so good we went there two nights in a row

What a nice surprise!
The manager presented us with a small appetizer, that he called a MUSE , complimentary for making a reservation!

Nice Mother's Day treat
Very kind, professional, and attentive service. Food was OK. Clams were far from "great" but the kids meals (with real fruit and veggies) were best you'll find eating out. Lunch prices were OK for portion size. O/A a nice place to spend Mother's Day.

All ways the best
My family went or Mother's Day and it was great and all the food was outstanding as always.

We were here with friends on Sunday evening, and had a lovely meal. When I requested grilled (instead of fried) calamari, our server suggested we try a seafood antipasto. This was a green salad with many added veggies, and with generous portions of grilled calamari and shrimp, mussels and clams. As with plain grilled calamari, this is an off-menu item, but it will now be my regular dinner. The other guests were equally satisfied with their selections.

A creditable instance
This is a decently managed version of this chain. The food was as expected -- my fish came out cold the first time but was replaced without a fuss and the 2nd time was good albeit perhaps a little dry. The sides were generous and the value was good. Desserts were weak.

Best service I've ever had
Best service I've ever had out eating, very accomodating and attentive. The seafood food was very good and I would return to try other dishes. Good variety and tasting wine at an affordable price. Those with celiac, the gluten free dinner roles are to die for, going back just for them.

good overall effort
fried oysters - they were small and too crunchy - maybe reduce the time more if small oysters- the flavor just is not there when they are too brown. my son really liked the Hake and all the kids loved the chocolate pudding dessert. the rolls are phenomenal - why is it the only place they are this good? service good. music peculiarly frenetic.

The food was very good, but
The food was very good, but we noticed the prices have been slowly creeping up. It is more expensive than a number of seafood restaurants, and to be honest, the food is not extraordinary. The service was excellent, and we were asked by any number of people if our meal was satisfactory and whether we needed anything further. Clearly they are paying attention from past experiences. While we will return, we may visit less often because of the price hike on some items - e.g. crabcakes.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good, as usual
We had a very enjoyable evening. The waitress was a lot of fun and added to our overall enjoyment. We will continue to return for those periodic "special" dinners as this is a wonderful seafood restaurant. A little towards the high end of the price scale, but worth the money.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Real butter please
We both had the stuffed lobster and it was good. We only wish that they used real butter instead of a substitute for dipping our lobster in. We did enjoy a special treat for making a reservation.

Very good crab cakes
Crab cakes and fries are a good lunch choice. Quiet Restaurant, easy to talk.

We had a great dinner last night at Legals. The wood grilled shrimp were as good as they get. Wonderful night from start to finish.

Great food. Seafood Experts
These people know a thing or two about seafood. Me and my wife chose this place because we went before but it was late and they didn't have some of the things we wanted on the menu. So we decided to give them another fair shot. Great idea. The food was great. I had their crab cakes and mussels and the wife had the seafood casserole. This was an awesome meal. The place was clean and the service was good. Definitely recommend.

Great as usual, but...
LSF is one of my three favorites in the metro area. My disappointment (as with a few others recently) is that it has switched to an ala carte menu presentation. I ordered scallops and was allowed only one side. Given my dietary needs, I ordered broccoli which was delicious; but I would have liked to have been allowed a "house" salad or a potato with my meal so I would have had a vegetable and a starch. My plate LOOKED like I was on a diet. The restaurant was "quiet," and my friend and I wondered if the changes and the accompany additional cost per meal played a role.

All six of us found a favorite seafood dish to select and were pleased with the final product. Our server was attentive throughout the meal. The young folks thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful selection of desserts. The Key Lime Pie was the all around favorite.

Like other members of this chain, the Bethesda outlet provides consistently good food. What it may lack in pizazz, it makes up for in quality.

Delicious food, good service
Always nice to start the visit with a female maitre d' who is genuinely friendly and welcoming and this is the first time an opentable.com reservation warranted a special appetizer from the chef. Five of us enjoyed different seafood entrees that were perfectly prepared. A delightful evening!

Odd chips/crisps with the crab dip that we didn't care for but everything else was great.

The food is always good. I especially appreciate that they have a gluten free menu, you can get Caesar salad with gluten free croutons, and gluten free rolls.

I wish there had been more oyster varieties and dishes during the "oyster festival", but the waiter-recommended Naked Cowboy oysters from NY were really really good.

Improved since the last time
My last review of this restaurant wasn't very good - we found serious problems with both the food and service. This time, things were much more pleasant. The food was fine and service was more attentive, albeit still a little inattentive. Nothing major - just a few minor glitches. All in all, we were pleased.

Another good dinner
My extended family went to dinner. The cioppino is great. The specialsare usually very good. My son likes the steamers.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Overall, I find the food being very good. It can be a bit pricey, but I found it to be acceptable.
Service staff is friendly. The ambience is very nice, considering that the restaurant is attached to a mall.
I certainly recommend this one!

Food was fine. Service with La Toya was fantastic. We three are not easy to satisfy. She listened carefully and brought us exactly what we asked for. Separate dressing on the side, extra ice for the water, hot soup, hot gluten free fried shrimp, great kale.

I find the crabcakes a real disappointment. The rolls, however, are excellent, as is the cream of crab soup. Dessert arrived still a bit frozen, but quite delicious. Our server was wonderful.

After over 20 years of living in Boston, I wanted a walk down memory lane. Boy did I get one. The oysters, chowder, lobster, seafood casserole, etc. were all outstanding.

Too bad they are closing at this location in a month.

I feel like I am in the hands of professionals. I got a table, menu, selection advice, service that was not intrusive or showy, just smooth and efficient. A very easy experience. Staff fades and my friend and food are the features.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Meal & Gluten-Free, too!
Loved that in addition to their regular menu they have fairly extensive gluten-free options as well. Because we booked through Open Table, they served an extra treat (a sampling of lobster bisque for my date and a gluten free melon and feta cheese tidbit for me). A nice dining option when shopping at Montgomery Mall.

I dine at this location at
I dine at this location at least once each month. While the food continues to impress, it's the service that consistently wows and keeps me coming back. One of my favorite places in the area. A great value! Like any restaurant, this one is only as good as the people that work there. The people take their cues from the management. This location is lucky enough to have one of the best managers anywhere!!!!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I like this restaurant as same as the ones in Boston and DC. Good quality of food and service.Plus easier acess, less crowded than other locations.
