Service was exceptionally slow, with long wait times from drinks to meals. Bartender was hollering into the kitchen, which was very disturbing and unprofessional. Food was average - not a phenomenal presentation given the price of meals. Not a bad experience - average, at best.

We have spent many an evening dining at Legal C Bar in Hingham. The food is excellent each and every time, the service is professional, courteous and very friendly. A cocktail, a great meal and a delicious coffee followed by a browse in the local bookstore... can't beat it!!!

I would have given a better review if the chairs had not been so uncomfortable. It's almost as if they were selected so the patrons will not be comfortable and the restaurant will be able to turn their tables more quickly. Otherwise, good food. Service could have been faster considering the number of wait staff standing around.

Food was good. Service was a little lacking but in fairness to the waiter the place was packed! People were waiting 1 1/2 hours for a table at 6:00. It was a Saturday.
So glad I made a reservation through Open Table. We (party of 4) were seated within 5 mins of our arrival.

Food was great, service was ok, front door staff was less than friendly, cleanliness could be worked on. The floors were covered in debris and looked like they hadn’t been touched since prior to opening. Cocktail napkins and cloth napkins being stepped over by waitstaff, definitely a distraction while eating as that was something we kept commmenting on and could have been a simple fix with a quick hoky and section maintenance.

You can always get a delicious meal at Legal C. Food is nicely prepared and service is excellent. Entree portions are large, and prices are comparable with other seafood places in the area.

 (Miami)·Dined on December 22, 2017

Prices are rather high for what you get. Brussels sprouts were delicious however the almost $30 truffle Mac n cheese entree I ordered had no truffles or truffle oil and had about 1-1.5 ounces of lobster and about 2 cups of Panko bread crumbs that seemed to be from the bottom of the bag. Also the dish was supposed to have peas in it and I counted 8 peas. It was dry and not creamy. To be fair the manager took it off our bill but I left hungry. The wine was good and salad was as it should be. Restaurant is good for a quick easy bite after shopping with easy access and good location. Convenient.

We had terrible service once again at Legal C in Hingham- we will not be going back. There were two waitresses assigned to our table, but I don't know why, as there was no communication between them. It took forever to get our drinks and appetizers. They then forgot to put in my dinner order, and 40 minutes later when we asked where our meals were, the response was, "Oh you ordered food?" They brought the one order of crab cakes and said my meal hadn't even been started. I said I had to leave to pick up my daughter- no apology or compensation, and the restaurant was 3/4 full at that point. So sub par to Legal Seafood. Never again though!

The food was amazing! The downfall was that all of the guests that were seated around us had small children who were not happy. Some having birthdays. I’m not sure if it’s routine to sit kids towards the back of the restaurant but there were plenty of tables available in front as well. Maybe we were placed in the back mistakenly? I love children and have many of my own along with grandchildren but sometimes a quiet meal is nice. A little disappointing with so much noise.

My wife and I had the Thai-influenced salmon with rice noodles, which were flooded with a very salty Hoisin type sauce. The noodles were very long and too tough to cut up. My granddaughter had the sole with spinach, which she enjoyed. We had the pumpkin cheesecake, which was average at best. Overall, not up to Legal standards.
