    Food and value were high quality and service was excellent, indeed extraordinary. Noise level impossible to carry out conversation, especially aa one guest was hard of hearing. To compound noise, background music grating. This would be 5-star for moderate priced meal if ambience was better. Restaurant design caters to people who want high noise high buzz? Not for people who dine to converse with friends instead of having to shout at each other.

    It was 15 minutes before anyone came to our table then took another 15 before our drinks came! The food took a really long time and my daughter needed another utensil to eat and it took 10 mins before she got one! The bill also took a good 10 mins after we asked for it. Oh and we ordered a side of fries and they never came even after I reminded the waitress. The food was good but I don’t think I will go back anytime soon after that really bad service!

    Excellent meal - sesame crusted tuna with ponzu sauce. Delicious. The salad was good too but the tomato balsamic was tasteless or missing altogether.

    From being my most favorite food franchise to now sweating off it. This is the third Legal C Bar/Legal Seafood facility in the past year that I have been to that has been an utter disappointment. Not sure what happened but after this latest visit I am done. The air quality was so bad that I had to rush my friend to finish up so we can leave. Over 12 hours later my clothes still stink of fried food and I had to take a shower to get the smell off of my hair and body. The best part was the burnt calamari that even though clearly looked burned were served with enthusiasm by the waitress… at least the Sushi we ordered was up to par. With all that, unfortunately will strongly recommend to avoid the place. Not just in Dedham but also the Braintree and Hingham locations. Saturday evening not spent well at all…

    My scallops were over cooked. They were "dark brown" fried rather than "golden fried" very disappointing given the price and amount they gave. They also forgot to give me my Cole slaw.

    Our server had to be reminded 2x about our orders, the French fries were disgusting filled with oil so obviously the oil in the fryers was old. The drinks took forever and came out at separate times. We were not offered dessert just the check being placed on the table and she walked away so we couldn’t order anything else.

    Enjoyed lunch here with my husband. We both had the barbecue steak tips which came with rice and green beans. We both enjoyed our meal. The steak tips were very tasty, just a small portion though. The rice and green beans were also good. Our server was pleasant and provided excellent service. This atmosphere is more bar like and could use a touch of elegance on the tables in my opinion. The prices reflect a more elegant place than what it actually is.

    We were seated in a booth across from the cooking station. All We listened to were crashing dishes the whole night. By the time I left I was shaking inside. It was very rude, uncaring, and unsettling. You really need to get that corrected I have always loved Legal C but the digestive system can’t handle that kind of racket again !!

    Legals is pretty consistent + my GF’s and I have been to this location before. The food + service were decent enough though we were ‘stuck’ in a back room without much atmosphere + I had made a reservation at least a week ahead. Walk ins were being sat at better tables. Just saying. Also my fellow diners paid $40.00 for a lobster roll, which is absolutely ridiculous. Not sure this luncheon felt ‘special’ enough for the $255.00 tab.

    You cannot go wrong with any of the dishes at Legal C Bar. I had just grilled organic salmon, steamed broccoli and well done French fries. My companion had baked cod and we had fried calamari as an appetizer. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
