Had a good time. The food was fine however, a bit pricey for the amount that you get.

Legal C Bar is a great neighborhood restaurant.
This was our first post-COVID visit and we were very happy to be back.
Great food as always at Legal.

Fried fish and chips and fisherman’s platter were very oily and not well-seasoned. The appetizers and other food was good and service was great.

My St. Louis ribs were not hot when served. Onion strings which I used to go there for are no longer on the menu. Very disappointing experience. First time there since the Berkowitz family sold the place. No plans to go back now.

Our server was great, and went above and beyond because our entrees took awhile to come out, but we didn’t mind anyhow. We always enjoy this particular location and will be back soon.

The service here is terrible. Took so long for the waiter to even come and greet us, we had to leave. Definitely unacceptable from a restaurant like Legals.

Everything was superb: service and food. I forget our waitress's name. We were a party of 6 (including todler) with a 7pm reservation. So, Legal please note she was very good, personable, attentive.

Hi, The folks were very nice the manager made sure to greet us. Server was very good came to our table many times. The clams were OVER cooked, too bad.
And leaving the young girls didn't even notice us, too bad. I said Good Night to them they didn't even say anything.

it's very nice, the indoor seating got a nice breeze from the open windows. however, there are very limited options for vegetarians (no fish) like myself. that was my fault, and I'll happily make that mistake again

Legal is keeping up their standards with new ownership. The quality of the seafood was excellent. Service very good as always. Unfortunately they were out of littleneck clams/cherrystones. The oysters were yummie though!

Clam chowder was excellent! Got seafood platter, was good, only thing is was dark due to the fact that the oil needs to be changed. Service was excellent.

Go there is you are planning to eat shellfish as it won’t need much culinary skill to prepare. Other than that the food was really of bad quality, especially for the price you pay.

Surprised by the service from this Legal Team. I was served a few weeks ago by the Dedham Team and was floored by the indifference I experienced while being served by this one. I’m not quibbling about not being asked for a refill or anything, but I simply asked for help with parking validation and was treated like I was asking for a free meal. I’m new to this area and probably will think twice about eating here as there are so many options at Assembly Row.

Took my elderly aunt and her caretaker out for lunch. Everything was perfect, and the server could not have been more attentive. Two managers checked with us to ensure all was going well.

Would have preferred to sit outside, but the benches were extremely dirty/stained and unappealing. Maybe they should think about replacing the cushions. I would recommend to a friend, but only inside seating, unfortunately with the weather being nice and social distancing...
