New England Clam Chowder
Great meal, and appreciated the pandemic precautions instituted!
We live in Texas now so don't get to dine at Legal Seafood very often. It never fails to be a pleasurable experience, with great food and friendly wait staff. We will take advantage of our time here and return again before heading home.
We loved getting another patio dinner out on the harbor before the cooler temps kick in. Would love to see Legal go with the patio heaters to extend that a bit longer.
As always the food and drink were great. Service was prompt but never rushed.
I wish I knew the name of my server because she was so amazing!!! I was also so pleasantly surprised to get outdoor seating!
Our food was so delicious and fresh and the chef and staff made careful consideration for my friend’s siliac disease . Tons of Gluten free options !!
Go there for the best Seafood in Boston and 5 star service !!
Management and servers went out of their way! Outdoor heaters on patio and beautiful view! Food was amazing- got the sushi boat. Please give them business during these hard times!
Perfect date night by the water with all the precautions of the pandemic perfectly implemented to make you feel safe and enjoy your time. Tuna sashimi was a 10/10. Salmon cooked perfectly and the jumbo crab cake is a must have. Also the waitstaff was so great.
We were seated below the service counter where they were wrapping utensils and performing other service duties. We had a view of the Harbor which was quite nice. The furnishings seemed very aged and worn. Our waiter, James was very attentive and gave great suggestions. The staff was very busy cleaning in according to Covid guidelines.
We would recommend and return to dine again!
Nice place on the harbor with reasonable priced foof.
Once the waiter got busy service was very slow. Got the salad with shrimp on it and the shrimp were small and tasted awful. The salad was a bunch of lettuce.
We had a wonderful time, thanks to great food, ambience, and Hattie, our server. She made the evening unforgettable.
Great care. Considering COVID-19 with outside dining we were quite pleased. Legals good always v. Good.
a great experience. couldn't have asked for more. one of us even asked to customize a dish, and Legal was happy to do it
Fabulous service and great food!
Made a reservation through open table, and glad I did! We were seated outside overlooking Boston harbor and it was a summer day in October. Our server was great and the food was perfection. A great spot and setting to enjoy some deliciousness!🦞
They did a great job as always with multiple food allergies.
Food and service was excellent. We had the RI style calamari, chowder, crab cake combo entree, crab roll, kids fish and chips and Boston Cream Pie. Seafood was all very fresh, kids entree was a generous size. Service was fast and many safety measures put in place made us feel very comfortable dining at Legal Harborside.
Not like previous experiences over there.
We went for our anniversary dinner. They were very accommodating with my gluten allergy. Everything was tasty.
We had a great spot outside in the sun; it was a gorgeous view of the ocean on a sunny 60 degree day! Food was excellent and waiter gets extra points for suggesting a great Malbac! Perfect for the day!
It was so great to be back at Legal Harborside. The view is spectacular, the servce was attentive and warm, and the food was better than ever. Even my New York colleague was impressed!
Thanks so much Legal!
The table surface was clean but the finish felt very sticky and distracting. Paper place setting would have helped if table cloth is not an option. Coffee was cold and sent back.
We always have a great meal at this restaurant, but we were disappointed that two of our most our favorite dishes (tempura green beans and crab avocado salad) were no longer in the menu. hopefullly they bring those back!
We love this restaurant - always good food and good service.
Food was pretty good. Service was a little slow and not very attentive at first. Cant beat the view. Also great location with shops around.
Last Sunday we celebrated birthdays & a confirmation. Not only was the weather perfect but the whole dinner beginning to end was excellent. But we were not surprised we have always celebrated milestone celebrations there & have never been let down. It’s always excellent food & flawless service !!!
We enjoyed the beautiful view. Our waitress was terrific.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience. It was a beautiful night right around sunset. The waiter was wonderful and the food was delicious! Would highly recommend
Had to look for the server many times.
Food was wonderful
Everyone was super. Best anniversary ever. Meredith was great and server excellent (I don't remember his name).
We sat outside, great table. Something that happened and of course I don't blame Legal but it wasn't nice. A girl came at our table selling flowers and she said her name is Trina and needed money for her kids. It was a little awkward and I was hoping for the manager to come and tell her to go away. Other than that everything was great!!!!
Perfect outside dining on the water. Legal never disappoints with the food and drinks. The service was wonderful. We never felt rushed.
Service and food were great, with a beautiful view included. Awesome wine list, too!
Hair in food. Disgusting.
Our waiter Jake was phenomenal. Seriously a great worker and was always around to help when needed. The food was great and the chef also named Jake that day made sure my birthday was as good as possible. Wonderful experience with both of them.
Since fist visiting Boston many, many years ago, Legal Seafood has always been a favorite eating place. However, this visit was a disappointment. Although my crab dish was very good and our tuna appetizer was also well done, my friend’s swordfish dish was just awful. The swordfish steak was first microscopic and the plate was covered with a pile of Luke warm French fries. The swordfish was also really tough and bland. Since it was his birthday dinner, it was especially disappointing. On the positive side, the service was excellent, the view is lovely and the drinks were good. Legal’s was my favorite fish restaurant in Boston, but I think it may be best to try some others.
Great way to celebrate a birthday on a gorgeous evening! The outside space is wonderful. Service was very good!
It’s probably a sign of the times but my Husband and I both felt the restaurant had lost its edge a little.
We got a great table so that was awesome! But no oysters, gluten free breads (which Legal normally rocks at and why I booked) and we felt the waiter had just had enough and wanted to go home! We’ll return at some point because we know how good it normally is, but we won’t be rushing.
It was a great dinner, despite the coronavirus situation. The menu is smaller than usual, which is not their fault but a consequence of the regulations. The person that served us (our apologies for not asking for his name) was really nice. Would love to come back and try their calamari!
Lovely server and everything we ordered was really good!! Loved the openness of the restaurant as it was such a good weather day.
Always enjoy Legal Harborside for the water views, great service and great food. Saturday we had a phenomenal waiter as well! A step above!!
