The staff were very accommodating to my large group and table request. The waiter wonderful and I would definitely ask for him again!
Great experience! The food was delicious. Loved the fig goat cheese pizza. Great variety in choices. Staff was super helpful and very pleasant.
Great food, cool server, great ambiance. Awesome waterfront view. Loved it.
Arrived early and found a gtreat table in the bar so gave up our reservation to eat in the bar as the waitress was really good.
The clam chowder is my fav!!
Food and service was good but way overpriced. I get that it’s the seaport but still expensive. They were out of crab that day too. I was craving a crab roll and got a lobster roll which was just meh.
Love Legal Harborside...it’s a must when when we are in Boston!! The spreads with pita bread & lobster bisque are delicious. The halibut special Fri. night was amazing!!
Great location and very nice atmosphere. Food was good but service was hit and miss. We did not get offered any specials and had to chase up a missing drink. Would recommend though and go again.
We celebrated our sons 9th birthday
He choose the location
Made many accommodations
God was outstanding hot and fresh
Service was friendly attentive and food was good
Best food best service in Boston hands down
The seafood special was disappointing - tuna encrusted with a wasabi/panko combo. Tuna was overcooked and flavorless. The service was outstanding however and the view from the 1st floor seating area on a cold butclear day was impressive. My business guests liked the ambiance although the dinner entrees were not the caliber I would have expected from Legals...
Excellent meal-from the oysters to dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant. We have never had a bad meal!
Thank you open table! Great reservation , very nice table as requested with a view! Great service! Great Food! Highly recommend if in Boston
Unfortunately we waited over 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. After going up twice, they finally realized they had marked us as “seated” when we were still waiting.
My husband had the fish and chips had no flavor. I ordered a burger (not a seafood fan - was there for the hubby) and could hardly eat the patty - it was entirely too salty.
The view of the bar or was great. Only wish we had ordered something better.
Great date night place! The food was wonderful and we sat by the window overlooking the water. It was perfect!
Fresh seafood, perfect for a casual date night or getting together with friends after work. Service was good.
overall experience was pretty good. Although they cancelled my reservation by mistake causing a bit of a wait, the food was its normal...very good and it's a great environment for dinner with a small group.
Legal's Harborside is always reliably good. Enjoy the menu more than standard Legal Seafoods. Server very attentive. Did not disappoint. I will say though that it was not the best lobster roll in Boston. If that's what you are hankering for, try Yankee Lobster, next door, or Neptune Oyster.
Well, it started out really well and we ordered drinks and our fish dinners .... then the manager came by to apologize profusely and to say the gas line had tripped - assured us it was a false alarm - and we could only order cold food. We ordered salads and lobster rolls (AMAZING!) and half way through, our original meals showed up from a different server. Our original server came over and apologized and said not to worry about it. A few minutes later the manager came over again and REALLY apologized, but told us we had to evacuate because the fire department had arrived. He also told us we didn't have to pay for anything. When we left, there were a bunch of firemen at the entrance and fire trucks outside. All in all, it was a very amusing evening and we'll head back in a couple of weeks to try for a more leisurely dinner.
Very disappointed in the Portuguese Stew. All lobster meat and shrimp formerly part of the stew are now eliminated. Really? Is Legals becoming cheap and cutting corners.? Shame.
Had the tuna special, outstanding. The combo crab cake/scallops/shrimp my wife has was a great value
Some dishes better than others, but overall the food was very good. Service great. It was crowded and so fairly noisy - good atmosphere if that's what you're looking for.
from the minute we walked in the door everything went great. The seat we got was perfect,the waiter was great and the food was delicious.
Very disappointed. The food is OK but overpriced. DO NOT ORDER CRISPY CALAMARI, because half of the basket are fried pickles and lemons that are barely edible. We ordered steamed lobster, lobster bake, crabcake, and they taste ok. Service is cold and not attentive. Our waitress "Jenaya M", didn't give us even one smile, and her service was very rush and unattentive. She treated the other White family that next to us with more respect and paid more attention. Basically a terrible experience at this place. It is not a place that you can relax and enjoy. I've got better food and much better service at the Legal Sea Foods in Framingham.
It’s awesome! Great food as usual 😋
I’ve been here several times before and every time the food is consistently good. This time we dined here for our son’s birthday celebration. The children’s menu has good selections for the young diner. The view of course can’t be beat! Would recommend and return!
We sat on the 2nd floor. Booth seat cushion was ripped. Waiter was slow. Food was excellent. Ambiance and view was terrific.
We had a generally excellent meal here on a weeknight. We have been to other LSF branches, and this was similar but perhaps more casual with some less expensive options and great water views.
FIRST -- A word of caution -- the "validated parking" they offer at the nearby Park Lane garage is useless. You get a couple of dollars off sky-high rates, and the validation is no good if you stay more than 2 hours. Our parking tab was $28 for 2 hours and 3 minutes. The valet parking is $20.
Oysters were fresh and tasty as always. The pan-fried trout was very good (I wanted it plain, but others may prefer some sauce.) Fish tacos were good but maybe not great. One of our party loved the yellowfin tuna, which was perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested.
We had requested a water-side table for 5, and we received one after a 15 minute wait. The benches don't have backs, probably because they don't want parties to linger at these prime spots. Service was good, although I saw our waiter try to bring one of our appetizers to the next table, then return to the kitchen, then brought it back to us after a 5 minute delay. Will return, but won't park at the ripoff garage.
Great view and great service but a vegetable on the side dish menu instead of all starch would be great
Our family's favorite restaurant! Never had a bad meal!! LOT of gluten-free options, including fried fish, fried clams, etc. Kids love that they can eat "regular" food, including french fries, and not worry about getting sick. Not a huge fan of other Legal restaurants but this one is a GEM!!!
This place is so great we came back for a second meal during our stay in Boston. Highly recommend!!
I've been to many Legals before, but this was by far my favorite. What an experience! Everything was fresh and light feeling -- maybe a feeling enhanced by the wonderful views. My friend selected the restaurant because she's Celiac and there were so many delicious options for her. They even brought out special, gluten free rolls for her. I snuck a bite, having never had one, and it was fantastic.
Raw bar was good/great. Only issue was my selection. I got it in my head the their rare grilled tuna would be prepared with a glaze etc. I was wrong (& they don’t advertise it as such so it was on me).
Just a recommendation, miso-glaze maybe..it could have used some more flavor.
Went for dinner with a group of 12. Food was hit or miss depending on the person. Paid $29.99 for a Lobster roll that was chewy and did not have much flavor. Prices were moderate, but with some food not being great, was not satisfied. Ambiance was noisy but tolerable and was not a reason not to go. Service was excellent.
Excellent seafood and a fun atmosphere
My wife and I were attending a professional conference and wanted one evening dedicated to ourselves. We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed the ambience of the lights on the harbor. Perfect evening in Boston even though we're Oriole and Raven fans!
Tight seating and poor service
Went to see the New England flower show at the World Trade Center and then lunch at legal’s. Decent kids menu.
