I and my wife enjoyed spending our anniversary dinner at the Legal Harbor on the 2nd floor. A "State of the Art" service combined with the exquisite kitchen and the extra-attention to our special occasion made the difference. An unforgettable evening, Thank You!
Oysters were fresh and wonderful. Main course "Dover sole" was nothing special and for $50 per plate not worth it, somewhat rubbery. Service was excellent and the view is special.
Great place for a date with great views on the water
not good！dont go
I had been looking forward to this visit as I had never been to the “infamous” 2nd floor for a few years. I was so happy when they called and confirmed the reservation and asked me if there were any dietary restrictions. I said yes “chocolate”. What showed up as the surprise birthday dessert? Chocolate. I was assured a substitution would be made.
The food is just ok. They miss not having some Legal standards like chowder on the menu. The high light is the bar. The bartender is talented and the drinks really unique.
The service was slow. We ordered wine that showed up after our entrees which is unacceptable at these prices.
My husband had the filet that measured about 3 oz. I had the braised short rib and lobster. I was accompanied by a strange mouse that ruined and overpowered the dish.
Advice is stay on the first floor if your looking for the great seafood Legal is known for.
This was not our first time dining here. It has become our favorite place to go. And the food was the best ever. The Swordfish Chop was perfect for sharing and it was delcious. Our server was outstanding and helped make it a memorable evening
The view was great , service too . Crab starter outstanding and the shrimp platter on ice all good . The Halibut was over salted , and the Steak was just average .
Roger Berkowitz never ceases to get it just right. Above and beyond service, atmosphere, and the best waterfront location of any other restaurant in the greater Boston area, bar none.
If you like wine, you'll LOVE the depth and breadth in a wine cellar stocked with well-known Wall St. guys' greatest hits as well as lesser-known butoften as good-or-better than the pricey bottles.
Raw bar selections still avaiable on 2nd floor, and a bit more sytlized seafood dishes (although some are hits/some are misses). Freshest seafood served by a highly professional staff. We will keep coming back, either upstairs or downstairs (esp. when there isn't a big bar scene on the 3 floor harbor-facing level - better know as "the cougar lounge". Stay away from late-night reservaitons in July and August, or you'll likely encounter a 20 something, hanging on the stairwell railing for dear life!
Food was consistent with legal sea foods high standard. Well prepared. The night fell down in every other way. Dining room looked tired. Wait staff was disinterested and hurried. Not as good as previous
The setting was very nice. Our service was ok. People that came in after were served every course before we were.
The food was good but nothing I would rave about. We had to wait a long time for our check. I would go back but I wouldn’t rush back.
They told us to quiet down, as a party of 10 noise should be expected.
Great views and service
Had a reservation and no table was available. We sat at a high booth which was adequate.
My experience at Legal Harborside is always fantastic. Food is very good, service is attentive but not intrusive. The wine selection is amazing and the wait staff is always helpful in picking a great wine.
We sat at the bar before we were taken to our table. The bartender Jack made a killer old fashioned for me and a great drink for my date.
Overall I would absolutely recommend Legal Seafood to anyone, but particularly Legal Harborside second floor takes it to the next level of service and food.
Our waiter was Daniel and he did an excellent job. He was knowledgeable of the menu and wine choices and very pleasant. His "assistant" was attentive to any needs such as topping off waters or getting dishes cleared when appropriate. Daniel and the assistant both were very professional and you didn't really know they were there unless you were looking for them to help. The food, as always was great. Everyone in our business group of four enjoyed their meal and Daniel suggested the peach and jalapeno vanilla yogurt and it sounded so wild we of course had to try it. It was delicious and split 4 ways so we didn't pork out on it.
