Great service and food!
Lunch date with a friend! Excellent service and my crab cake was perfect!!
Great service and recommendations
Great food - very professional service until the check is thrown on the table and the service person disappears. Maybe our business meeting lasted too long??
This Legal has the same staff for a very long time. The staff is amazing and Always pleasant. The food was very good. Good selections. Amazing oysters!
after changing hands, so far the new owners have maintained the magic of Legal SF.
Had to keep finding our server. He was not very attentive.
Great waiter and the food was great too
Everything was delicious, especially the crab cakes. The crab cakes are the best around.
We also started with Oysters great selection, and quite tasty.
Previous visit the portion of food (haddock) was below my expectation. This visit it met my expectation. To be honest we only went this time because we got a gift card. The clam chowder was very good. My wife thought the stuffed jumbo shirmp were very good - a little pricey however. We will give them another try.
The menu has gotten limited and more expensive. But the food remains good and the servers are always friendly.
I was looking forward to eating at Legal since I had memories of excellent meals. This was very disappointing. My haddock was over cooked and dry. I used to work in a kitchen and understand. It may have been the waiter’s fault by not picking up the food and letting it sit under the hot lamps too long. My friends swordfish was also over cooked. The service was terrible in that everything took too long. Worst mistake was another round of beers was ordered during the meal and they finally arrived AFTER the meal was WAY over.
Patio was great!
On the down side, the strawberry shortcake biscuit had an odd, fried, slightly burnt quality to it. HOWEVER, everything else was truly delicious, the service was personable, efficient, and professional, and the outdoor seating was comfortable and pleasant. This was a graduation celebration, and we had a wonderful time!
Had a great time!
food quality has gone way down since pre pandemic times.
I have always been a frequent Legal's customer very disappointed in the food quality.
I have always loved this spot. I’m just so sad all the food items I loved are no longer on the menu now that new ownership took over. The food quality has declined severely :(
The highlight of our girls lunch was our server, Andrew! We all work in the industry and had such a good time chatting with him throughout our visit. He provided awesome recommendations and his service was on point every step of the way. We will be back and hope to see him!!
We had a wonderful birthday dinner here last night! Staff super helpful and accommodating. Nice light on the patio at sunset.
My daughter’s 21st birthday was so fun thanks to Meghan and staff!
Excellent service and great food. Nice spot outside to meet with friends after a long year apart.
Outstanding and positive night to spend with friends
We were shorted on our takeout order. At the end of our dinner we ordered a shrimp cocktail, a crab app and 4 servings of clam chowder to go. The chowder cups were all half empty. We will not be ordering takeout from this restaurant again.
Great service. Food is good but pretty expensive for what it is. The entrees are fresh and large portions but the price doesn’t fit the neighbourhood of Assembly Row…
When my Dad and I arrived for our outdoor table meeting our family, we were shocked that a leashed dog barked viciously and attempted to attack my Dad as we walked by. We noticed three dogs outside, none of whom were service dogs. If conventional dogs are not allowed inside of restaurants, they should not be allowed on outside patios either. I understand management is trying to solicit patrons by allowing their dogs, but I feel this is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
I ordered the lump crab cake combo at $36. I received one lump crab cake, two over grilled shrimp and three scallops. I would have received a greater value splitting the seafood platter for four with my father. I felt this dish was overpriced and should have been listed as an appetizer.
While your food is consistently delicious, the value has decreased through the years. My family eats at Legal Seafood only once a year when a special gathering mandates it. Legal Seafood has lost it's appeal with the locals and now exists as the proverbial tourist trap. Being a local, I've found greater value with equal-better food quality at Turner's Seafood as well as other independently owned seafood establishments.
I know I am but one customer and you will surely not go out of business (right now). I applaud your extraordinary marketing efforts, but it's only a matter of time before Legal Seafood's reputation declines.
The food was really good, met our expectations. Fun place to go and walk around.
Best service at this restaurant
Great food and good service. I actually prefer their Lynnfield location’s food and service
Met a girlfriend for dinner and we had a terrific time. Food was fab and the service was amazing!
I think other locations do a better job all around.
The service was slow, the food was was not hot when served.
Just needs some improvement to last.
Mother’s Day - just what she wanted and expected!
Everything was excellent! Food delicious, server thoughtful and very nice. Food perfect time ready. Will definitely return and refer friends.
Ate outside on the patio with my mom for Mother's Day. Wellfleet oysters, amazing crab, gluten-free fried clams. Delicious and great, friendly service!
Great experience! Food and service was wonderful.
Always a great dinner for us. We go almost once a month.
Services was great and very professional. Food was amazing well recommended
Delicious food, for the meals for all three persons at our table. Great service.
Very good lunch food (mussels and crab cake entree), drink and service!
Fresh and delicious salmon and lobster. Great service by Brittany.
So nice to see Legal bustling again, and to see so many people on streets in Assembly Square. It felt very post-COVID.
