It was great!
Excellent service and very good fish and chips severed very hot the way they should be
predictably good: great server, fresh seafood, modern setting. parking situation stinks, but we got there early enough.
Brian was the best waiter ever made my girl friends birthday dinner really special!
Picked up family at Logan Express and had dinner. We arrived slightly earlier than the time reserved and were accomodated shortly after our arrival.
Great food and great service, as always! The two top tables are a bit small especially when ordering multiple appetizers, drinks, etc. This was easily overlooked by the great meals we enjoyed.
It was very good. Just what we expected from Legal.
My husband and I love Legal Seafood. We go to the one in Braintree most often since it is close to home. The food is consistently delicious and fresh. The service is excellent from the front desk staff to the wait staff. Our waiter was excellent.
Very pleased this time; had bowl of clam chowder while my mom had the spicy fish and chips. Fish and chips portion were enough for 2 people to share. Everything was on point. Thank you Legal's.
As usual food was delicious. Waitress and staff were on point and courteous. Had a great bday date
The worst piece of Halibut my 87 yo father ever had!!
Visiting town get together with family. Great place. Great service!
we really like it here and come about once per week. if it's the weekend definitely make a reservation.
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and was lucky enough to to have Brian as our waitstaff for our special occasion!
He made our dining experience the best with his suggestions and his energy and rapport he must have with his customers. We will definitely ask for Brian on our next visit to Legal’s in Braintree
I’m a fan of Legal Seafoods but this time my dinner wasn’t on point; sent my dinner back to fix one of the ingredients and came back worse; would I go back - yes. Would I order what I had - probably not. Our waiter was fantastic!
This Legal Seafood is consistently excellent. We always come back! Great food, great service, nice bar for dining at.
My husband and I came in for a pre-planned lunch. We were very pleased with our booth which we had requested. We wete further pleased with Jennifer who was very knowledgeable about the menu. Her recommendations were top notch. Her knowledge and her nice demenor made our dining experience that much nicer. Please commend her for that and acknowledge her for the professionalism that she conveyed to us. P.S. The bathroom was emaculate.
I usually enjoy Legal for dinner. This time, the kitchen left a lot to be desired. It was Easter Sunday and our dinner took over 50 minutes to be served. I give the bartender credit. My sister and I were sitting at the bar and inquired if she could check on our meals. She left and after almost 10 minutes came back saying, "I hovered over them to get your food." She went out of her way to get our orders. I have no idea why it took so long.
As with all prior experiences with Legal Sea Foods, the food was wonderful. For our Easter Sunday meal the service was exceptional!
The seafood choices were plentiful. We had several questions on some of the specials and our server was able to answer without hesitation. We had tuna tartar and crab dip. They were both flavorful and presented very nicely. All of our choices for the main course were excellent. No item was overcooked or bland. Scallops, salmon, swordfish and a bouillabaisse like dish were all delicious.
Everything was excellent.
The table was ready on time and allowed us all to socialize with each other. The server was wonderful. He was attentive and did not rush us in the least. The food, as always, was delicious.
The usual high level of service and food quality — as expected. Fast attentive, but not intrusive service.
Delicious food and an impeccable, professional staff.
This was my first time dining at this legals location and we enjoyed it! I was late for my reservation and they had us seated within 5 minutes (it was very busy!) So this is good. Food and drinks were great, and the birthday desert was amazing! We will dine here again.
Rebecca was our terrific server! She went above and beyond to help with my dietary needs and to make sure we were happy. I would ask for her again. The managers on staff were phenomenal, as well. Very attentive. Look forward to our next visit.
Busy but it did not affect service. Food was outstanding.
Up until this last dining experience, I have found the service, etc. at the Forbes Road Legal Sea Foods very good to outstanding. This time was a disappointing exception. I had made reservations and asked for a booth in the reservation request. The reservations person at the restaurant told me it would be a few minutes, which was understandable considering the crowded restaurant. However, the wait was more than a few minutes, and it seemed that the reservations person had forgotten us. When I checked in again, he said that there was no booth, and if I didn't want to wait any more, I could have a table in the quiet part of the restaurant, and he would give me one of the best waiters. This turned out to be simply lip service. The room in the back was populated with a few tables where children (not quiet) were present, the waiter checked in with us very few times, neglected to fill water glasses, etc.
The food was fine, except the calamari appetizer looked like bits and pieces of indistinguishable origin, not recognizable rings and bodies, and tasted burnt. I did not complain about this at the restaurant, because my two dining companions seemed okay with it.
As always, the food was outstanding. The fried clam app was a bit overpriced at $17. I had trout that was cooked perfectly. A little disappointed the double veg was two green items.
Our only complaint was being seated in the bar in a booth for 2. With an advanced reservation, in the future, I would request to NOT be in the bar...way too noisy.
Legal Seafood is fantastic at what they do. Fresh fish, cooked well. Our server was pleasant and attentive. It was a busy Saturday night. We got a table in a high traffic area. One person in our party was being banged into a bit. Next time I need to remember to request a booth.
My wife loves Legal’s. She loves seafood. I ate the lemon chicken. Chicken was burnt on one side and pretty close to being burnt on the other side. My wife’s food was perfect she said.
Ordered Arctic Char with baked potato and broccoli. Fish and potato served, but took 10 minutes for broccoli to be served. Would prefer potato without salt on skin. Fish was done perfectly. Unusual for Legal, but plated with out greens or anything but fish and potato on the plate.
We made a reservation for 6:30, arrived at 6:15 and we're seated right away. The server was great. She checked in on us regularly without being intrusive. The food was delicious. We both had the Crab Cake Combo.
Enjoyed my salmon lunch while my sister had crab. Our friendly server, Emily, was attentive. This new Braintree location is an improvement over the prior site at the South Shore plaza. Always consistent food at this chain.
Vanessa was excellent! The Nutty salmon was very good. I also like the light clam chowder made with a clear broth. My husband loves the shrimp wontons with seaweed salad.
Reunion with family.
My wife and I always choose Legal Seafood in Braintree, because of the great customer service and consistently great food! It is also a great place for kids, the kids menu has lots of choices.
We recently celebrated a family members birthday (4 adults and 2 children). We had a wonderful meal, food came out quickly, our server was very attentive.
Family dinner for six. Everyone was happy with their appetizer and entree. Delish!
This location has been there for about 5 years. The atmosphere is not as intimate as the prior location. Booths are available but limited. The lighting is dim and it's very noisy. The food is excellent and a nice variety of seafood. The meal portion is large and usually enough to take home. I split a Cesar Salad with my husband and it was just enough. The service was excellent and we were not rushed.
