It was my father’s birthday and it was a great night
Our food was delicious, I had grilled blackened salmon.
My husband had fried shrimp.
We enjoyed the bang bang cauliflower.
Our waitress was outstanding!
We went for our anniversary (don't ask how many) 2 days before Thanksgiving and expected a crush so went early. Instead, it was not terribly busy and therefore quiet. The food was as usual, extremely fresh and excellent. They have a somewhat limited menu which means they have polished all their choices to perfection. Our server was outstanding, with 13 years working them, and a real professional. We'll go back again for sure!
Good food and good value. Excellent service.
Food was very good, prices are a bit high though. Service was solid as well.
Legals used to be my favorite place to go for a good dinner. Since you changed your menu I find the choices to be very limited and uncreative and the prices exorbitant. I have returned several times hoping that the menu will change back or change again in a positive way, but it is likely to be quite a while before I return to any of the Legals again.
Wonderful place for lunch with friends. Service was excellent and waiter was very helpful with selections. Meals are well prepared and very appetizing. Parking is no problem and restaurant is across the street from the Braintree Mall if you want to shop afterwards.
Great experience. Everyone’s meal was great! Had the mussels and super garlicky delicious!!!
Excellent service and meal. Looking forward to our next Legal Seafood visit.
Sever was really good
Professional and nice
Rare these days !
Luis was AWESOME! And the food was great. Anytime I come home to Boston I always need my Legal fix! I can’t get over how large the portions were too. Great food and great service
It was just okay…not the same as pre-pandemic and pre-sale. Limited menu…very sad..I go,back to,the original in Cambridge. This sure isn’t what it used to be.
Lunch menu was a bit limited, but everything was well prepared.
Great food. Everything was excellent. The service was also great. The main course wasn’t rushed. The atmosphere was lovely and fun but upscale. If you want fresh seafood this is an excellent option.
The service was oaky. The food was fresh and prepared very well, but the price is fairly high.
The menu selection is just fair, but the selection was items I was familiar with and above the basics.
The lobster bisque and yellow fin tuna were fabulous. Very pleasant and professional waitress. Bar martinis were great too!
If I could give it zero stars I would. We dine out at legal seafood many times and have never had it be this bad. It was a little busy but I was a waiter before. The waiter was good at first got us our drinks and appetizers after that it went downhill . The waiter walked by us several times before taking our order . When our food came out my fries were cold and his fries were cold as well. Waited 15 minutes for a refill on our drinks even though she walked by us ignoring us for 15 minutes. Giving her attention to other tables and putting her back to us.She didn’t even ask how our food was because I would’ve told her the fries were cold. We waited for boxes for another 15 minutes and for the check for 30 minutes. We spent an hour and a half their which we could’ve been out in an hour if she payed attention to us or gave us good customer service. We spent our anniversary dinner at legal which we shouldn’t have because it was ruined. I will not be returning to legal seafood .Such a waste of money. Never again..
I was a party of 1, so they sat me at the tables in the bar area, which was fine. I had a couple of loud patrons at the bar that were using some pretty offensive language. I am not bothered by that at all, however I would recommend keeping children and maybe sensitive adults out of that environment.
Leian P. took great care of us. Food was Legal Seafoods quality. We will be back.
Great chowder, steamers and butter lobster roll. Also great seafood and the server was excellent and made our meal special
We vacationed in New England and had dinner here on our last night before flying out. It took a long time for the waiter to acknowledge us but then he was ok. I had salmon which was great but the plate was ice cold and so was the farro and kale (which was supposed to be kale but was spinach). My daughter got the lobster bisque which took some time. The waiter said they were waiting for lobster. It was good once she got it but the chunks of lobster looked and tasted more like crab. We were disappointed in this dinner.
We expect wait staff to be masked which they were, but between the noise level & the masks it was hard to hear.
The food was nicely done - one salmon, one shrimp scampi & one scallops were all well prepared, served hot in in good sized portions.

Fabulous food and service! Brian’s the best!
One of the party ordered the Swordfish steak with the olives; olives turned out to be the star. Swordfish reported to be very low on taste. The other dishes were very good. In looking at the bill when we got home, I think we were charged for a glass of wine we didn't order. There were three of us in the party, and I was the driver and had none. I should have caught it there.
Unfortunately Legal has gone downhill and is jut not the same. they finally brought back he lobster bisque and it was not good; instead of being a rich reddish color it was brown and watery. It was quite peppery and if there was sherry in it we couldn't taste it. I ordered the simply grilled scallops and they had no taste. Very disappointed in the meal overall.
Meeting an old friend for a reunion of sorts.
Good food, good service.
Restaurants used to be a treat and a pleasure to go to, not anymore.
The service was terrible, felt rushed and not taken care of......I work too hard for my money and it was not worth the trip, time or money. Will not be back.
Bartender are always the best
As usual the quality of the food and service were excellent!
Waitress was awesome! We were disappointed that the menu had changed. We came in for the trout and baked potato and both were removed from the menu.
we sat at the bar and got excellent service!!!! food was great as usual.
Great food great service
Everything was great as usual. The one thing we would say is that having the dessert menu on the kids menu was a bit odd. Also the desserts didn’t have any description with them. The presentation of the dessert menu was just lacking. Just a thought. Great food and service as always.
Absolutely the best restaurant, it’s my favorite. Friendly and courteous staff all the time. The food is always delicious
Our server was very attentive and friendly. We always have a great time when we go to Legals Braintree.
Late lunch with friends on a Tuesday. We three enjoyed tuna burgers and tuna steak entrees with service by Brian who was superb. He really knows people and has a great sense of humor. Legal Sea Foods is convenient, consistent, with a good menu and wine list.
