We were never seated. They took us to three different tables each with people in them. They passed by many open tables but told us we would have to wait 15-20 min for another table to open. We left.
The waiter did not “hear” our order for mussels and did not apologize and was in fact defensive. We waited a long tine for the meal to arrive.
Delicious dinner with great service on a busy Saturday night. Bang Bang Cauliflower was a great meal starter.
Steamed lobsters were as good as always. That’s why we keep going back - it is consistently high quality seafood.
We were not surprised by either the quality of food or the great service we have come to expect from Legal Seafood.
Overall good experience. Food is always fresh.
Always consistent and delicious. They are happy to make items from the lunch menu at dinner time!
I always get a great meal at all the Legals
Even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait 15 mins
Food was great as usual. However we had to wait over 20 minutes past our reservation time for a table. Moreover the host was rude about the delay, and not at all apologetic. The restaurant clearly over-booked itself for Mothers Day.
We were seated next to the noisy bathroom next to the only other African-American family in the restaurant. It seems like we are seated next the bathroom by default unless we object. The food and waiter was top notch.
This is always a great go to for a guaranteed good food and good time
This is a good restaurant for sea food: it appears to be fresh and tasty. However, I have learned from prior experiences there that one MUST order specifically what is wanted, in order to avoid what is NOT wanted. I can see where the expertise is not in desserts: I ordered key lime pie, thinking that there would be a wedge of pie on a plate, and not some sort of fluted crumb container of something tasting nowhere close to key lime pie.
Great food, great service, best seafood around and for non seafood eaters alternatives were very good, not just fillin.
We come here frequently for special occasions. Birthdays, Mother's Day etc.. This time was for Mother's Day and we were pleasantly surprised. We knew it would be busy but the restaurant was very well staffed. We were seated on time and received excellent service. The food, as usual, was very good. Everyone had some form of seafood and we all enjoyed our meal. Again, the staff should be complimented for their service. They were attentive without being intrusive.
This was actually one of our better trips to legal! Went for Mother’s Day and the food was fantastic!
Disappointing menu for Mother’s Day Brunch (nothing!)
We went for Mother’s Day. In general it was a good experience, other than 2 things. We had a before-noon reservation and they can’t serve alcohol before noon. We had to ask for a kids menu several times before getting one. The service was very attentive otherwise. The food was very good. I had a crab cake entree that was terrific, with lump crab. My wife had a baked shrimp dish that she really enjoyed as well. Our little guy had popcorn shrimp that he actually ate, which is an accomplishment. Legal’s is great for safe, above average seafood for slightly inflated prices. This visit was no different.
Wonderful service and delicious food. Kids and grandparents were all very satisfied!
Great Place. My "shrimp"/broccoli dish was a bit stuffed with rice Vs expected shrimp portion. But overall it was great.
the usual good food, not superb, i convenient setting.
Very good as always but a bit noisy.
Always delicious! Always consistent in all areas, food, service, and comfort.
I have been to several Legal Seafood restaurants and my experience at Chestnut Hill was similar to the others. Their seafood is overpriced and nothing special. The service was fine and the ambiance was okay but if you want good seafood at a reasonable price, look elsewhere.
Legal Chestnut Hill - a tradition that is as great today as it was 40+ years ago (when grandparents took us).
Fish is freshest. Continue to cycle in new dishes to highlight the fish. Provide lots of flex on preparation of food including sides.
Legal has something for everyone (provided you want fish - cant speak to non-fish related main courses).
Happy got here one last time before they move to their new space across the parking lot.
Great service, food and ambience! It's always a good time when I visit Legal Seafood. The food is fresh and tasty.
We had a reservation but sat at the bar instead as we had the most impeccable bar tender. Jackson anticipated our needs, treated us extremely well, and was all around enjoyable. Legal Seafood has always been my favorite restaurant, but the Chestnut Hill location always gets it right.
Tasty dinner with great service, even considering it was a busy Saturday night.
The staff was most attentive and friendly. Great experience!
Our server was more than Accommodating and professional the mai tai was delicious and the fried clams were perfect.
Wanted to have dinner before going to a concert downtown. We didn't have a lot of time, but we alerted our server to our schedule. Meal was delicious, served very speedily. Just what we needed.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Good for all types of occasions!
This place continues to disappoint. The locale makes no difference. The menu hasn’t changed in years and the offerings lack imagination. Went on a Saturday night with two friends. The scallops special was ok but sides were cold and rice undercooked. The seafood casserole was dry and too salty. The wood grilled haddock was the worst of the 3 entrees. It was not only overcooked but not fresh. What ever happened to “ if it’s not fresh it’s not Legal” ?? Save your money and your palate.
Our server Katherine L. was excellent - personable, efficient and attentive
Fun Saturday night dinner with friends. Food and service were great, especially given a busy night in the dining room.
We can always count on Legal for delicious, fresh fish. Service was not particularly gracious.
Never disappointed with the food. The service is always good too.
The atmosphere was good. the food was very good as well. It was prepared well. The staff was very nice and welcoming. The restaurant was very accommodating, because I could confirm how many people were going to show up for the dinner. They still seated us with extra chairs just in case.
