If you have food allergies, this is a great place to go
Delicious meals - crab cake/ grilled fish/ Cajun shrimp- all excellent
Ordered littlenecks.. took forever to get them and service was okay .. had to ask for bread. Every other legals brings bread right away and never have to wait so long for an appetizer. Not impressed at all.
Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. I especially liked the crab cake and salad entree, which was delicious and full of flavor. Blackened salmon taco and salmon burger were also big hits. The service was excellent; our server was friendly and attentive to our needs.
Food was excellent — as always. The menu changes periodically, but the quality level stays high.
Uninspired seafood with unoriginal side dishes. Not a fine dining experience although paid as much. Boiled lobster well, that's about it.
crispy calamar was not crispy, in fact swimming in oil! grilled salmon was not better than ok. i ll not come again. other legal restaurants i ve tried , are better than this i think
We had been to the Copley Legal several years ago and decided not to go back because it was mediocre. Over the holidays we met relatives there who had particular dietary needs. It was wonderful - the food was terrific (well cooked, hot, adapted to the needs of our family member), service was good, we were seated at our reservation time, etc. So last weekend we decided to go back with friends. It was back to its old mediocre food again (overcooked, oily vegetables, etc)! It was eatable, but not good - certainly not the quality we would expect from Legal Seafood. We were very disappointed, will not go back again and will not recommend it to others.
We were out in Boston for my birthday, and I've always loved legal, but tonight was bad all around. No one came to our table for almost 20 minutes when we first sat down, I don't think any one knew who was supposed to take care of us. So no one brought water, greeted us, etc. we had 3 small, hungry children and normally we go to legal for good food quickly, it didn't feel like that tonight. Also, because of the abnormally warm weather the table/restaurant was uncomfortably warm. My baby was so hot his cheeks were bright red and he was sitting in his tank top onesie. I spent the entire dinner walking him to the front of the restaurant where it was cooler. When we asked someone about the heat, they offered to move us, but we had two kids, three adults and already had our food- that was way too much work. We just wanted to get out at that point. Just a tip for next time- if it's hot in the restaurant turn on the AC even if it is February.
Great food. Service was a little slow though . The food is amazing and the portions are large.
Great service! We had a large group and they were very accommodating.
If you've been to any of Legals newer locations and enjoyed them then I wouldn't suggest going to Copley. Stuck in time -not only the decor but also with their food. Mostly fried and not what I have come to expect at all for Legals. Very disappointing.
I was skeptical of the location of this restaurant as it was i a mall. However, I found the interior to be intimate and relaxed. Our server was extremely helpful and attentive. The food was great! Lobsters were perfectly steamed and the chowder was fantastic.
Excellent food. Tasteful seafood and a comfortable place to enjoy it. A must visit in Boston for real seafood!!
Visiting Boston from AZ, we wanted fresh seafood. The lobster we ordered & received was very rubbery. Advised our server but she was uninterested. Thank clams had a “tail” on them that I had never seen before. Very unappetizing to see.
