One of the best fish dinners I’ve had recently. Haddock was so fresh and baked perfectly, topped with crispy buttery crumbs and fresh roasted tomato slices. It arrived to our table hot from the oven. Love the fact that I could substitute my two sides. The roasted baby potatoes and grilled asparagus were delicious. Plus, hot crispy rolls are still complimentary here, whereas other spots now charge for bread since Covid. It wasn’t inexpensive—- $73 pp including the tip. But we did each have two glasses of wine and shared a calamari appetizer.

Shrimp in sushi was over cooked and hard. Ceasar salad dressing seemed like a oil based dressing and did not have a lot of taste. Not much dressing to boot.

Grant and Deanna our Server took amazing care of us - we had an amazing dinner and outside on the patio. I miss the Legal Burlington team but C Bar did a great job thanks to these two, highly recommended!

Very loud, food was average, tables are to close to each other, can hear neighbors conversation which was very uncomfortable and annoying.

Service was attentive despite restaurant being full.

Meals were excellent...mine in particular was tremendous. Piece of haddock was huge...rice well done and broccoli nice and crisp.

The Cioppino was flavorful and plentiful.

Service & food were great. There were two separate parties with young children that thought it was appropriate for children to be running in the restaurant. It was distracting and annoying. I know the staff is not responsible for co-parenting, but someone could have asked the parties to ask their children to sit.

The sushi was very good, as was the baked haddock. The restaurant felt a little bit disorganized compared to past experiences. Since the change of ownership, the menu is also different. That said, the quality of the food was high, and we did have a very nice server who was attentive and professional. The restaurant was very crowded (and noisy) by the time we left at 7:30 PM, and this made me wish I had been seated outside.

Great food and service. However, no oysters even though they were on menu. I know that happens, but a year ago to the day (our anniversary), the same issue. Oysters on menu, not available. You’d think they’d update menu or let it be known beforehand online or before seating.

Food was good, server was great. Unfortunately seated at a table in the back corner of restaurant- should have asked for a different table - this was back corner against wall near restroom entrance. Next time will ask for a different table.

Overall, great as usual. I asked for quiet table and great server and got both. Food was very good. They just need to get Gluten Free rolls back since they are able to do so much that is GF.

Special call out to the hostess team. Saw a gentleman arguing repeatedly about wanting to sit on patio even though it was full. Hostess could not have been nicer even though she had to tell him repeatedly that there was not a table available.

Mngr popped over to check in. You won’t see that too often.

Thx Legal C!

We made reservations but we didn’t have a good table. We were offered another but not any better. The restaurant has some bad table spots. Food good. Service good for pandemic short staff. Polite.

We were celebrating our anniversary and were super excited to got to Legals, since we got engaged at the aquarium in Boston and went to Legal there. So we decided to keep the tradition and go to the one near us. We were received by very flustered staff that seem to be annoyed at dinners that were outside and asked to be moved inside because of the heat. The whole situation was very uncomfortable while waiters were complaining to the host as we were standing right there waiting to be seated. We requested to seat outside if possible and prompted a whole explanation on why we wouldn’t be able to be moved in if we chose outside. Everyone seemed on edge and annoyed. The food came in quick and it was delirious. The service at our table was not bad at all. Towards the end she even smiled and made a few jokes. But honestly, the whole situation in the beginning spoiled the whole night. We were extremely uncomfortable to see staff complaining about outside guests right after we had just requested to be seated outside.

I was very disappointed in service. Food was delivered with utensils and sauces missing. Lobster juice was mixing with side dishes changing taste and texture. The waitress didn’t deliver food and the bus person didn’t tell waitress what more was needed. It was over 5 minutes before we could get the waitress’s attention, therefore lobster and tuna was getting cold.

Sadly even though we had reservation for a party of 2 and there were quite a few open tables we were seated next to the bathrooms- disappointing. Went back to the 3 hostesses and pointed out all the open tables so they moved us…

Dinner was great. Service was amazing- promote Brian A HE WAS AWESOME!!
