    Lobster ravioli came out over cooked and basically a plate of mush. However, the manager recognized this and immediately took it off the bill and offered to get me anything else I wanted. They handled it quite professionally. My wife and daughter really enjoyed their meals. Overall, not bad. I will go back.

    Everything was great especially the food, until the close to the end when 2-3 waiters sprayed chemicals and vacuumed 3-4 tables all around us which created lots dust and lots of noise and a chemical smell and was very disturbing for 10-15 minutes. We are allergic to chemicals and dust, which one of the waiters doing this operation knew and he should have waited. But they were making a racket and interrupted our conversations. When we had asked him to stop before he refused, so we did not want to make a scene as this was a special family occasion. We come here often, so this was very disappointing. They never do this in Dedham and other places we go as we love Legal and have been a patron for years. We hope you can alert your staff that their behavior is disrespectful, even for people without allergies. My husband had to leave the table until they finished while he was still eating.

    Haddock for the Anna’s Way was sent back. Clearly precooked then microwaved. Rice was undercooked, I picked out 3 large bay leaves, serious chocking hazard. Pointed it out to waitress who said it can’t be helped because it’s made in big batches. Use a satchel! Crab cake combo, crab cake was great, scallops, tiny and overcooked. Shrimp, flavorless. Staff was ok. Tap water tasted like it came from a garden hose. Very disappointed. Legal has gone downhill.

    Legal C in Hingham has gone south. Service was mediocre. Food was swimming in oil. Prices have gone up, significantly. Chowder was good and the same. Still a good place for apps.

    As usual, Legal does its seafood well. The chowder was very good and the fish sandwich was a hit at our table. The table for 6 was crammed on a real "table for 4" and seemed a terrible way to spend lunch. Server was taking care of too many tables to give excellent service, but she did her best (considering).

    Quality of food wasn’t good. Got the lobster Mac & cheese for $50 and it was so breaded and there was little to no cheese. Husband had the salmon which was okay but the rice was undercooked and crunchy

    The food was all undercooked and cool, not hot. The baked stuffed lobster was scrawny, tough, and hardly had any stuffing at all. Flavorless. The broccoli Au gratin was just boiled broccoli covered with globs of lukewarm cheese and a few cracker crumbs. The chowder was thin and bland. I think it was just a super busy night so the kitchen was struggling to keep up. We waited for 15 minutes at our table before our server even came to bring water.

    We ended up with a party of four. Perhaps it was due to our late arrival, but the food was not up to the usual standards or expectations from Legal C or Legal Seafoods in general. We are long time customers and were met with dishes (baked haddock specifically) that seemed pre-plated and that it sat around before being served. We had guests with us from out of town that love seafood. We chose Legal because we have never been disappointed before........let's hope tonight was an exception, but it will take some time before we return. After our experience (including a small bug in our friend's wine), it will be a while until we can recommend this location to friends.

    It’s my mothers 98th birthday (!), and she loves oysters, so we went to c bar for late lunch of clams and various oysters on the half shell (oysters only $2@ 2-5 during October). Food was really terrific, the raw items perfectly fresh and flavorful, sauces really tasty. I also had oyster slider appetizer (yum), and she had appetizer steamed mussels, also lovely. It would have been a 5 star overall experience except for really lousy service. We waited at least 30 mins for raw bar items, in a not busy at all place. Our waitress forgot about refilling my water glass, and she was nowhere around when we needed her. Too bad, cuz otherwise it was an excellent experience.

    The food was mostly inedible. We live close by and hoped it had improved but we will not go again. Horrible, slow service despite very few customers in restaurant and horrible food, especially the lobster. It was not fresh and had a horrible, almost chemical flavor. Other locations are better. This company needs to pay attention to its Hingham store. This is an active dining community.

    Overall experience was very good and the food has always been consistently good. We just wished the wait staff checked in a bit more. At only one point, my sister had to get up and get the waitress’ attention. I did notice the portion of fried clams seemed smaller than the last time I ordered but I also understand the struggles the businesses are facing with the economy.

    It was my birthday and we decided to go there as a family (my husband, 12 yr old & 10 yr old). Our waitress Neliza was Fantastic!! She was so kind and accommodating. Got us whatever we needed, helped us decide what we wanted to eat and placed our order perfectly. We all loved our choices on the menu and we’re extremely satisfied with the meals.

    I have many allergies. I gave our very nice waitress my list. When my order was brought to the table item was on my dish that I was allergic to. The manager even brought out my dish and said this is safe. I said to our waitress the sis not safe. I also had a cocktail there was no presence of alcohol, it also took very long to arrive at our table.

    This was not a good meal …. I do believe there is an issue with this particular location as I have enjoyed other locations of Legal Seafood restaurants. Full disclosure … I am from New Bedford with full access to incredibly high quality seafood markets I know how to prepare my fish. When I asked the waiter about certain dishes I was disappointed to know they were using pollock instead of cod or haddock. ( price point did not justify that choice of fish) . With that knowledge, I ordered the baked haddock ( something I make frequently at home) The piece of fish was mostly the thin tail end, and served warm, not hot. The rice and broccoli was an even cooler temperature. I ordered a white sangria that tasted mostly like a lemon drop with a whole lot of ice in a wine glass.. My last visit to this location I ordered a crab cake , something I have ordered at other locations and thoroughly enjoyed. This location presented a crab cake that was loaded with mayonnaise and pretty gross. Sorry, two strikes and your out on this one.

    The food was excellent. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Lovely fresh fish. The restaurant inside is pretty bland, lacking any charm. It’s just a big room with a bar in the middle. We ate outside at a sidewalk table.
