Legal on the Mystic
Legal on the Mystic takes its design direction from the early industrial development that occurred at Assembly Square. By using materials such as steel pipes, metal mesh, steel, concrete and brick, the space takes on an industrial feel reminiscent of the history. The expo kitchen serves as a backdrop to the restaurant, while the bar is the focus. Large garage doors allow for open air dining and entry to a riverside patio that’s topped by a 20’ tulip umbrella.
Our server David was the best!! Extremely friendly, helpful and ready to answer any questions we had. He is a great asset to your establishment.
As always, Legal delivered. Jeanette was wonderful and the food and drink were perfect.
Quality if food was completely disappointing. Ceasar salad was wilted. No fresh shaved parmesan. Didn't come with lemon wedges. No tall ground pepper option. FLAT.
Bouillabaisse- several of the mussels were closed. The others, small and overcooked. Almost no white fish. Two small scallops. Lobster so overcooked you could not tear from shell wall. Martini was just Terrible. No th nearly chilled enough. Dirty was basically clean.
Super overpriced for poor value. You guys need to step it up if you want more sophisticated patrons (ie., not tourists). Problem, you already know this, so why make better?
We had a lovely evening at Legal on the Mystic. Food always done just right. Great salmon! Very pleasant server.
We loved the food! Definitely recommend the crab cakes and lobster roll! I also had the tuna steak and it was pretty good!
Ive been here three times and have had wonderful experiences with the drinks, food and staff. Highly recommend it.
The starter (fried clams) were fantastic. They were fresh but it was a small portion. The lobster roll was acceptable but again, probably slightly overpriced. The salad with lobster was just OK. The salad itself was disappointing with a good sized portion of lobster but again, the quality was just decent.
However, the service was great. My son has a good allergy and the server was beyond helpful. For that, I would go back again and I would recommend this location after a good morning / day of shopping.
The server was very argumentative and rude. Even with the bad experience We had with him I left him a 20% tip and he didn’t even thank me when i was leaving
Food was fair
Service was good
Amazing waitress Jeanette! She is a must have! She is so friendly and sweet, and really helps make your meal so enjoyable! Every experience at this legal has been great. The meal was fantastic too!
Food and service was wonderful! Beautiful environment and there is outdoor seating which would be perfect on a nice night. Scallops are amazing and the special of the night was delicious too! Would highly recommend.
Our server, David, was outstanding. He even suggested and offered to serve something that wasn’t on he menu. It was great.
Everything was great. Truly enjoyed the Mediterranean Salad!
Service was great! Food always good. It's the only restaurant we go to when we are at Assembly.
Steamed lobster was overcooked and dry. Dishes arrived after a very long wait. Server was unfriendly.
I think I'm one of the few that is never impressed with any of the "Legal" restaurants. On a moderately busy, beautiful Sunday afternoon there were 5 of us for dinner. I split a salad and fried clams with my daughter. The server was kind enough to split the order into two plates, which we appreciated. However, the clams were very fragrant and fishy smelling. I left most of mine. At $32 for this dinner, it should be perfect. The other diners had varying opinions of their meals from "it was ok", to "I liked it." No one raved about the food, though, except for the Mud pie. That was pretty good! I'll be thinking long and hard before going to any Legal restaurants.
Our favorite Legal location. Food is high quality. (Should add Hot Crab Lump dip to the Starter menu for this location-not the Spinach Feta Crab dip).
Service was good. Table was already set when we arrived. Server was attentive to our needs. Easy genuine conversation with server (Nicole). Server also paid special attention to the reservation notes about the special occasion.
We had an excellent meal at Legal...the view was pretty by the open window and all of us were very satisfied with our soups and entrees. Would definitely go again.
Great place great service amazing food. Love everything about this restaurant
We sat outside. Service was too slow, it took over 10 minutes for the server to come to the table.
Good as usually at this location..been to other locations before, we still love this location.....
Food was awesome and our waitress was fantastic. Even on a busy Father’s Day it was still excellent quality and outstanding service.
Took my Dad for Fathers Day. We were taken directly to our table. Next to the cooking area. A little hot. He ordered the salmon. Delicious. Sides should come with the meal and not be extra! I ordered the trout. Also, delicious with mashed potatoes and jasmine rice! Enjoyed with a glass of Moscato. Yummy! Server was great. Not to obtrusive, but there when needed! Too filled for dessert!
We had a wonderful Father's Day dinner with our children who live in the Boston area. The service was good and the food was yummy! It was very important to have gluten free offerings with careful attention to not have any cross contamination. We were happy they could deliver. Will definitely return.
My mom and I went to Legal for a quick dinner since we were staying at a hotel in Assembly. It was great. We sat in an area next to an open window which was great. Quick service, delicious food!
Too much time to get food, I have waited for an hour to get food
Have enjoyed Legal on the Mystic for many years - pretty location, tall ceilings, tables not jammed together, service as always professional, and food consistently well prepared.
I love Legals, my only complaint is that we initially wanted to sit outside and wrote that in our open table reservation but it is seat yourself out there so all the tables with coverings were taken. We sat inside and had a great meal. Always love the sangria!
They have the best gluten free menu anywhere including their fried foods. There are plenty of choices to eat or drink. It's always worth asking for the specials, because they are often good value for money. The service is always courteous, knowledgeable, and friendly. It is truly our favorite chain. The only downside is that it's noisy when crowded, but the food, drinks, and service are so good that I'm willing to suffer the noise.
The place was pretty noisy and we had some trouble hearing our server if she was on the far side of the table. Other than that everything was excellent especially the food itself
Always a great meal @ Legal on the Mystic...lively location and fun team.
Was very happy with my experience. The atmosphere and food was lovely. It was perfect for my birthday! I will defiantly recommend this place to anyone who asks where to go for a birthday dinner. Was very happy with the food and service... my server was amazing and very sweet too. Overall 5 stars for me
We eat at Legal on Mystic at least once a month. The reception and waitstaff are terrific. Food is always a joy, whether it be a salad or a full meal. Especially love the crab cakes. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.
Wine by glass overpriced. Food ok service good. Same ole same ole
My favorite place. The steamers are so delicious and I love the risotto cake and rainbow trout. The manager of this restaurant is outstanding- his eyes are everywhere and restaurant is well run.
Thank you for a very nice visit. Friend, sister! Lol, however we have been best buds for over 30+years. And we like to eat out! We do want our food of choice to be good.
Legal Seafood 🦞 did, not disappoint!
It was so good we didn’t even take pictures! I just have a pic of my nice, mixed greens 🥬 🥗 salad!
I had the seafood casserole, mashed potatoes.
Our appetizer was bacon 🥓 wrapped scallops. Even the sesame seeds, cucumbers and feta cheese was awesome!
Rita had the Fisherman platter. 😮 wow, great!
I also ordered a plate to go for my hubby. Shrimp 🍤 platter. He enjoyed it! Even a couple hours later. 👍🏽
My BFF will be here in July and wants to go to Legal Seafood. Legal was our place to go when we graduated high school in 1982! We would get our hair done like we was on top, like the rice & famous! Lol
We will be going to the Legal on the Wharf since she’s visiting from Florida I want her to enjoy the view on the water!
Thanks again Legal for making part of our afternoon enjoyable!
Our experience at Legal on the Mystic was quite enjoyable, and we have Carson to thank for that. She was one of the best servers I’ve ever had, and she made our night one to remember. She was so incredibly polite, friendly, funny, timely, attentive—everything you could ask for! I never had to ask for more water, Carson was always on deck with a pitcher in hand. She sold us on one of the feature dishes, the mahi mahi. Though I was a bit cautious to try something new, she convinced me it was worth it, and oh boy, it sure was! I will definitely be returning and requesting to sit with Ms. Carson, an A+ woman.
For a chain, great quality service and food!
Food was good, service good, ambiance drab
