    Dined on the patio on a beautiful summer afternoon. The service was prompt and friendly. We had mussels, tuna poke, grilled scallops with two sides. The food was attractively presented and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Highly recommend Legals.

    Our waitress Amy was wonderful, a kind soul. The food was expensive and simple, probably due to inflation.

    I ordered fried clams which were very expensive. Portion was not good, maybe 6 or 7 clams. And at least two were inedible, very chewy and could not swallow. Clam chowder was excellent. And service was great! Overall disappointing…

    Very delicious "Isle of Skye" ocean salmon with delicious yogurt toping. Never love the "cheek-to-jowell" seating on the sofa along outer wall. Could hear everyone's conversation, so kept our conversation shallow. Then our "sofa-mate" at the next table (5" away") commented on Our topics--which was ok because I purposely kept it light. Friendly, but completely confirms my" anti-sofa " opinion. Please space out some of those tables!!

    The fire alarm went off for over 5 minutes while we were there. It was so loud and really disturbing to my in-laws. They sat there plugging their ears and really struggling. Once it was over, they felt edgy and could hear the ringing still. It was not a good start to our meal and there wasn’t even an apology or anything for the big inconvenience. We were also put in a high traffic spot with wait staff constantly walking around us and stopping at a desk behind my husband. He found it very distracting and difficult. Also, they didn’t have crayons for my kids to use to color with. My kids usually like to draw and color on the menu but didn’t have that ability this go round. Sub-par atmosphere and ambiance for Legal.

    Our server Rachel was just right - attentive without being intrusive, got everything right on order, pleasant and professional. Food was very good. Moroccan swordfish from test menu was tasty if a little bit too spicy for me. Patio was surprisingly noisy for an open space. Our only criticism is that Legal keeps moving pricing up. We hope that it doesn't become a "special occasions only" place.

    My friend and I enjoyed a quiet lunch outside on the patio. Our salmon was cooked to perfection and my companion mentioned that her decaf coffee was excellent and had another cup - very unusual for her. Our server said they were using a new coffee. So good to know! Our server was friendly and efficient.

    Legal C Bar is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is very good, the service is always excellent, and the atmosphere is great. I love the outside dining, even in the winter when the heaters are on, and the plastic shades are down.

    Big difference in food quality from just a few weeks ago. New chef? Smaller portion of grilled salmon, was dry. Two weeks ago, double the size of the filet and done medium as requested. Also, over salted. Service was great.

    We got a reservation fro 6 on a Friday Night easily. Wait staff took great care of us. Spaced our food, so the main course did not come out in the middle of our apps. Good drinks, and food was hot and delicious. You get what you pay for! Highly recommend.

    Our group included several who were coming from different areas- Foxboro, Topsfield, So NH, and NH seacoast. Many arrived later than expected due to travel, late meetings, etc. Restaurant staff were very accommodating even on a busy Friday night. Food was great, atmosphere was comfortable and laid back. We'll definitely be returning!

    I always love coming here! Unfortunatley last night was not what I expected :( We waited 50 minutes for our entrees to come in and were not checked on by our waitress until she noticed and said “I have no idea what is going on with your food but ill double check now” that was after a good 35-40 minutes since we had ordred. We of course understand things can get busy - but would have appreciated some more attention to what was going on with the food we had ordered and foudn out that someone else “stole the burger” that was ordered. So we ended up having dinner at 9:00pm after conming in for our reservation at 8:00pm. We so love coming here, just was very disappointed in the experience we happened to have last night! Everyone can have some off days, but I thought I would express what happened! :)

    We have enjoyed Legal for many years. Service was always good and restaurants are very clean. However, the quality of the crab meat has gone DOWN HILL, plus the price of it has gone up hill. Clam chowder has remained good. Overall, I have no desire to return and eat there again. Very disappointed.
