Tight seating and poor service
We had a late reservation for a group of 14 and they were able to accommodate us with no problem. The location was great and their small plates menu had some delicious options (short rib bruchetta, I'm looking at you!) Beware, parking is limited and valet is 20 with validation.
The crab cake and lobster roll were outstanding l, as I would expect them to be. The clams and sushi were average and I sent back my lobster bisque. It had virtually no lobster flavor. I was extremely disappointed. And our waitress was abysmal. The view was amazing. I expected more from Legal!
Every course came out quickly and was delicious! Our waitress was helpful and fun
Food always suburb at this location no matter which floor you dine on!
Great food but the waitress was rude. Not great social skills.
Wonderful evening with a group of four of us. Excellent service, wine, cocktails, and food. We are never disappointed at Legal Seafood!
Had the Portuguese Seafood Stew, full of shrimp and fish and came piping hot, excellent.
Server was friendly and professional, no waiting for anything.
Prices were more than fair, would definitely come back here, one of Boston's best!
Terrible quality and experience
Oysters exceptional!!! Ate far too much food, should have more direction from the waiter when ordering!!!! Being from UK.
Legal's is not always on my list of favorite restaurants as I have tired of their menu over the years. This time I was most pleasantly surprised. The experience was exceptional from chowder, raw bar, and sushi to baked scrod, scallops, and salmon they did a fantastic job! And you can't beat the view! My faith is this Boston institution has been restored.
Had a very nice dinner date at the Legal Harborside. It was cold out miserable outside so the typical most attractive parts of this restaurant (outdoor seating and views of waterfront) were not even in the equation. Even still between the food being excellent, the service being extremely prompt and professional the overall experience was exceptional. We will definitely return.
Fried shrimp were over cooked. Our waitress forgot one of our appteziers Very quick taking our order. When she left told my family this not be correct. It wasn't!
The food was good, as it usually it at Legal. I had oysters that were great, then scallops for dinner. It's a great location being right on the water and we had a seat right by the window. It was a bit more casual than I expected from Legal, but apparently the first floor is casual the second floor is a bit more formal. Had I known when I booked the reservation, I would have opted for the second floor. That wasn't really a problem though. The service, on the other hand, left something to be desired. We waited an inordinate amount of time to get our bill, as the waitress was preoccupied with a large table of people in their early 20's. Tough to handle a large group like that I understand, but I think she could have done much better even if she just stopped by briefly.
Great views, fresh good food, friendly staff, and a fun relaxed ambiance.
I was recently very critical of Legal's 2nd floor dining room (2 stars on Trip Advisor!) but the 1st floor is Legal at it's very best. A simple and interesting menu with variety - all executed perfectly. My favorites are the lobster roll, clam chowder and fried clams!! Classic fare done very, very well - and a very nice setting with a great bar!!
Loved the food, service and decor, but when all the tables filled in, it was too crowded between tables, and noisy. Ambiance was better before the rush - glad I was finishing up by then.
Amazing place! The location right on the water to the terrific food & service. Market prices may be a little high for some people but it is worth every penny!!!
The food was great and the service was awesome.
Came with my husband, sister, infant and grandparents. I have been and so has my husband but I take the opportunity to bring whoever I can when I am in the neighborhood. We started out our day at the Seaport Convention Center and ended at Legals. Food was amazing as always, drinks were perfectly made. Everyone was patient with us as we asked questions about everything and while my 9 month old had her way with the paper place mat. We had a beautiful view of the harbor and our entire party enjoyed themselves tremendously.
The food never disappoints and the service was great. We were in town for my birthday and had a great lunch at Legal Harborside. We showed up early and they were able to accommodate is, which was great. We love it there and will return.
Always a great lunch at Harborside. Tough to choose between the lobster roll and the fried clams!
We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. We had the Dover sole special and while pricey it was very good and a strong experience
My fiance and I love Legal Harborside, it's our go to place whenever we are in Boston. The food is always amazing, the service is always great, and we just love the vibe of the restaurant. I would recommend this place over and over again to everyone.
Amazing food and a great value! The food was quite good, and great ambiance. Book in advance because then you can get yourself a table by the water view!!
Legal Harborside delights with delicious food and competent service!
Good Food. Had (12)Oysters(3.00-3.50 each)(all yummy)but not shucked well/gritty. Bacon Wrap scallops(3)for $16 . Scallops were Average Size on a bed of grits.. too pricey for 3 lil scallops. Wife Ate Sushi (she loved). I had Shrimp Scampi with asparagus(yummy). Had a tasty Bottle of Riesling for $35(reasonable price)(forget name). I request a table by a Window for Vday,
I ask why we wasn’t seat by window when another couple right behind us was seat by window. Hostess said you can but you will have to wait 1hr but I clearly requested it through open table/when the restaurant called to confirm reservation . I was upset that a walk in got a better seat than someone that made reservations
Valet Parking has to paid in Cash Only and must be paid before/not after. So you need to bring cash only for $20 valet plus Tip. This is needs to be shown on website.
Overall I would revisit because of the Wait Staff and yummy food. No Valet again...and will not choose to make reservations for special occasions.
Visited the restaurant for Valentine's dinner. I definitely don't recommend it. The tables were too close to each other, so we had no intimacy at all. The waitress was slow and careless. Perhaps she had too many clients to attend.
The overall quality of the food was good, but quite overpriced given the size of the dishes.
To start the night off, our 8:30 reservation didn’t get sat for over 20 minutes. It was Valentine’s Day so this was somewhat expected, however not even an apology was offered. We get to our table and unroll our silverware, which was disgusting. Food was literally caked on both our sets with disgusting spots all over. We were fine with eating with our fingers. Our server was awkward and quiet and seemed upset with us at one point for asking for one of our drinks to get more mixer because it was so strong, it wasn’t a complaint just a preference. The food was decent. The atmosphere was nice minus the filthy silverware. Maybe legals harborside is more in their game in the summer months.
Great food, server was a little slow.
Service was excellent. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was excellent. I have been to this location numerous times and never disappointed.
A fine splurge in the Seaport District with great harbor views.
great place to grab some great seafood. Atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly, not rushed. Great views of the harbor and of course, wonderful lobster.
Love legals beautiful spot
Nice wait staff eager to please
Food was delicious
We've had better experiences here but I think I'm done. The food has gone downhill and it's too mediocre for the price. Our server to top it off wasn't up to par.
They really do seafood well. The salmon was cooked perfectly. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
