Bang Bang Cauliflower
warm butter-poached or traditional with mayo
regular or rhode island style (hot peppers and garlic)
Outstanding and Jonathan runs a great operation
excellent meal and waitress food and drinks were excellent
The hostess was extremely accommodating when we wanted to choose our outside table.
The experience went downhill from there.
Our waitress was not very friendly. Forgot our request for extra Napkins and for more bread.
The salmon was barely edible/ broccoli was fine.
My friend ordered the linguine and clam sauce. There were no clams - looks Ike it was from a can.
The coffee was too strong / bitter to drink.
I have never had a bad experience at any legal. I just had lunch in 9/26/2020 and loved it.
Sorry to report. Was Really disappointed- will opt from Davios next time.
Nice outdoor dining with heating
First time back out to restaurants. We've been very good patrons pre-covid but it's different and not in a good way. The waitress was carrying on conversations with the next table while we waited and waited. Extremely slow service. Had a couple of lobster rolls. The wife took part of hers home and 15 hrs later it wasn't edible ... It will be a while before we venture back!
Everything was as good as could be expected “during these trying times”. Server was very sweet and food was very good as always but through no fault of the establishment- the ambiance was lousy- bare tables-plastic plates - no accoutrements on the table all just a sign of the times. So one can’t give it 5 stars! Hopefully we’ll all be back to normal soon...
Legal C in Lynnfield is mediocre at best. The food was not good and the pour was (as it always is) weak. Too much garlic on the vegetables.
If your food is not that good at least make a strong cocktail.
Excellent service and food, with the safety measures legal has taken we were confident we were in a safe environment
Had bang, bang cauliflower as an appetizer, lunch salad with Grilled salmon and bon bons for dessert. All were delicious. Ate outside, service was excellent.
It appeared that the restaurant has gone to great lengths to have all seating spaced in accordance with COVID rules and that cleanliness was a priority. Also, service was “top notch” and the food was delicious, per usual! I had made a reservation for lunch and called to inform the hostess that we were stuck in traffic due to an accident and would be late. She was very understanding and assured me that our table would be held. The vibe in the restaurant was lively since a football game was on and many customers took advantage of the outside dining since it was a beautiful fall day! I highly recommend Legal C!
We sat at the bar and had great service! I recommend a barstool over a table here because the bartenders are pros.
Crab cakes were spectacular and the Cajun salmon on Caesar salad was knock your socks off good !
Great outside patio area. Felt safe and comfortable regarding spacing and contact issues for Covid 19 .
As always delicious food and attentive staff. So happy Legal C at MarketStreet Lynnfield is open again.
Good place to meet friends and dine locally in Lynnfield
Was able to sit out on patio , lobster roll was good and meaty.
The food and service were both outstanding. Great meal,
Excellent time at the Legal C Bar. The food and service were top notch. I took my daughter and son-in-law for their anniversary dinner and can't wait to go back.
Also, hats off to the manager on the selection of bourbon for an after dinner drink. Thank you all for a great evening!
Every entree ordered: (6 of us) fried clams, salmon, salmon Berger, even the butternut squash was too spicy. I like spicy food, but this was over the top. Unfortunately, we won’t be returning.
Adult night out
No raw bar
That was one of the reason we went there
I like the new limited menu,😊
There were six of us so we had to be seated indoors. We were seated at a long table right in front of an outside door, which to accommodate us they left open. Each of us enjoys a different kind of wine and they had all of them available. I am GF and there were plenty of options. Everyone was able to find something they liked and everyone enjoyed their meal. Everyone with whom we dealt were kind and anxious to please.
Everything was satisfactory with the exception of what seemed to be a limited menu compared to what we're used to. Perhaps this is directly related to the times we're currently living in? Supply and demand. Fewer diners.
The first server we had was an incredibly rude guy that expected us to know what we wanted the moment we sat down. We had never been there before, so that didn't happen. Thankfully, he pawned us off and the rest our visit was handled by a very nice server who we made sure to tip well.
Ate outside with enclosure. Noisy, perhaps because of high ceiling. Changeover of servers made for a longer wait for drinks and bread. Food was excellent.
Sat at the bar with friend, great service, clean and distancing was perfect.
As always good food and service was great. However I was there for a lunch patio seating , and it was clear that none of the tables and chairs were cleaned from the previous days evening dinners. Given the current situation sanitation between each guest must be job one.
Excellent food, as always! Very attentive wait staff. Great dining experience!
Great service, great food. We went to celebrate a birthday and our server did a great job making the birthday girl feel special.
It was good seeing people sitting around the bar hope for the future
Clean off tables and chairs better!
We all sat on food debris...duh.
The service a the Lynnfield location is always outstanding. They are very personable, friendly and professional.
Getting together with old friends! Great food and company! Good time had by all!
Outstanding and Danielle does a great job
Our waiter was very good. Food was delicious & we enjoyed sitting outside under the covered patio
Great lunch with Mum! The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. Legals C in Lynnfield is a SUPER dog-friendly spot. We enjoyed lunch on the patio with Mum and our dog. The staff was great made sure everyone had what they needed and liked. They were great at finding a table that was partially shaded.
The food was excellent as always. Crab cake dinner, and bonbons . Always have good service and a great meal. Highly recommend!
We were seated outside as requested with terrific service and good food — a win, win!
The food was very good, however the service was not. Our waiter behaved as if it was a huge inconvenience to him to be serving us. Not impressed with the service at all.
We planned to sit outside, where the tables are well spaced. The waitress was personable and knew the menu. All of us enjoyed our food!
I saw more lax Covid standards than other restaurants.
It was concerning.
