    This was a siblings’ lunch and dining at Legal Seafood at many locations has been a family tradition over the last few decades. This was our first visit to the Lynnfield location where food and service were the same high quality we have become used to. We had lots of catching up to do and our server timed ordering and check-ins perfectly.

    Food and service wore fantastic, noisy level, was a little much even in the corner of the restaurant specially, for my elder parents, but the main issue, was the very bright outdoor light shining directly into our faces, somewhat blinding us, since windows had no covers since the windows had no covers.

    Our server was great the food came out late so she comped us our appetizer. She was pleasant and social. The Salmon was delicious. The Shrimp scampi was just so so. I was hoping for more of a garlic flavor and it was skimpy on the shrimp

    not sure this was one of the best meals I have had at Legal Husband and I had lunch at Legal I had the sauteed scallops-they were not particularly good over cooked-perhaps the grill was not clean? They just were not juicy and didn't taste all that fresh. Not worth the high price the Legal at Chestnut Hill and Kendall and Copley are better, I would say.

    Had a late afternoon luncheon seated at the high tops. Our favorite spot Carol was our server and this is the second time she has been our waitress. Both times we have had outstanding service by her and want to acknowledge her commitment to helping her customers!

    Not worth the price to eat here. Food was so so. You would expect top notch seafood but my scallops were tasteless. The food took way too long to come out and obviously sat under the warmer for a long time . Plate was hot but food wasn’t. So disappointed.

    We have been going to Legals on Christmas Eve since it opened in Lynnfield. I understand that it was Christmas Eve, things might not be perfect. First, we were sat at a table that was incomplete - no silverware or napkins - had to ask for them. Then we ordered appetizers - dozen oysters, the condiments had no silverware. Its hard to use the mignonette without a spoon, had to ask for those also. Food took forever to come out after we ordered. Filets were dry. We didn't get any steak knives even though we asked for them. One of us had pasta, and we asked for grated cheese, and we never got that either. Tristan, our server, was pleasant enough, but he took care of new tables, before trying to take care of the ones that needed things once we got our food. We had to proceed to eat, before our food got cold. We had ordered drinks prior to getting our dinner, and they weren't brought over until we were almost done with dinner. Definitely not up to Legal's standard for service. The chain has lost a lot since Berkowitz sold it.

    Our server was great, spot on with drink, appetizers and main meal suggestions. She checked in with us about every ten minutes, made sure everything was OK, kept our water filled, and let us enjoy visiting with friends and enjoying our meals. We're not given the attitude to "eat it fast and hit the road. We were not rushed, just the oposite.

    Legal C bar has become extremely expensive and at level of fine dining and thats way too much. Food is excellent but the value is gone. Overpriced and $42 for basically fish and chips (fisherman’s platter) is outrageously expensive. A swordfish for $38 is 20-25% overpriced for a place like Legal C bar

    A very pleasant lunch on the “porch.” The heaters keep it warm and it is the quietest spot in the restaurant. Food, as usual, is terrific. My first choice for seafood.

    If you haven't been to Legal C is awhile you should go back. We had stopped going after the restaurants had been sold as we felt the quality had really gone down. We tried it again and were happy we did.

    A friend and I went to the Legal C Bar for lunch on a Saturday. My friend enjoyed her Salmon dish and liked it. I ordered the grilled scallops. They were overcooked, rubbery, and tasted fishy, not fresh. I complained to the server and she offered me to choose something else, so I ordered the shrimp gumbo, which I had a couple of years ago at the Natick Legal Seafood and enjoyed very much. That was not my opinion with this order. The shrimp were fresh tasting and were not over cooked, but the sauce was overly salted and lacked the nice seasoning of the dish that I have had in the past. I did not want to complain a second time, but will not be returning to this restaurant again, especially with the higher prices than a couple of years ago.
