Excellent Service and Meal. We had dinner before attending a show at the Opera House. It was perfect.
Food was great but our drinks took a long time to be delivered.
Super sweet waitress. Very attentive!
Scallops were rubbery and fried fish was dry. Not up to the standards we expected from Legal
excellent service. only comment- no anchovies in the Ceaser salad was very disappointing
Server was excellent. Friendly, attentive, and helpful. When I ordered a ginger ale, he suggested a ginger beer, which was outstanding. I ordered the scallop crudo, half Caesar salad, and Lemon Grey Sole, The sole wasn’t as good as it normally is. It was shriveled up along with the capers. Green beans and potatoes were perfectly cooked, as usual. Also. the salad and entree arrived at the same time, which is a kitchen issue.
Very few diners so wait staff and management were very attentive. Every dish was delicious.
We had the best experience. Our food and cocktails were delicious and perfectly executed. The service was great as was the ambiance.
This place was absolutely great! The ambience was terrific - very relaxing, mood lighting and the restaurant has a very nice, high-end feel to it. The service is absolutely excellent! I have no complaints about this restaurant and I would highly recommend it especially for a really nice evening out. The food is fairly priced - not outrageous, but not less than what you would expect for this type of atmosphere. I enjoyed it.
Food was not cooked well. Felt bad for servers who were running around - not enough staff. Not the same quality of food - not worth the price.
I had dinner with my daughter after the Nutcracker show. Super convenient, clean and delightful. Our waiter was super nice and attentive. Would recommend anyone to eat there. Great food and service.
Everything was great; delicious lunch and we loved our server, she was fabulous!
We were seated early! The serving size was generous. I had sesame coated tuna: it was cooked to my liking, tender, not dry, and delicious. The server has a sense of humor, which made our visit fun.
Delicious Christmas Eve dinner, very nice server
Very good seafood. Would go again.
Amazing food and service. Everything was spectacular. I would highly recommend this place!
Our waiter was perfect!! So nice and efficient. He gets a 10!
Taryn is the best server at Legal Crossing. Personable, filled my beverage glasses promptly, great sense of timing, and cleared away all plates. I tried the Cioppino for the first time at Legal’s and it was delicious. There was a delay in the hostess stand. There was no one there initially, then there were two people helping with a gift card for one customer, but one person was looking on. I miss Maura or the gentleman who is usually there.
Thank you for great food, service, and especially for the excellent drink service!
Great all around!
Service was awful. No hostess when we first arrived. Took 15 minutes for server to come to table, did not offer water or bread. Server only came back to check on us once. Food was dry and cold. Not great at all.
Our meal was excellent our waiter Nicholas was excellent too. He provided attentive and friendly service. The manager and all the staff we dealt with were wonderful too.
Great place to go after the show! Convenient and accessible! Great drinks, food and desserts!
Excellent service and food. Lovely staff. Fresh fish and veggies superbly prepared.
Service was slow, but it was a busy night. The house manager took good care of us while we waited and got us out in time for our show. Overall, great option for dinner before a show.
Fantastic, and menu updated with more choices.. very impressed.
Food and drinks were great! Service was not the best. We were clearly ready to order, waiter walked by looking at us several times before taking order. Asked for a glass of water before apps were served and had to ask again, finally with check got my water.
Excellent food and service! Having a reservation makes a difference. We were in and out in a reasonable amount of time on a Sunday for lunch.
I was looking for a restaurant to attend with my families and found the Legat C food in downtown had tables open and we made reservations, so far the service was great.
We were early and still seated right away. Service was great and food portion were plenty as we had to take what we couldn't eat home.
Excellent and fast service
It was great and we always dine here while attending the theatre but we missed the Korean rice bowl.
The food is just fair
Absolutely perfect. Felt so COVID-19 safe! Food was better than ever. Service was attentive in all the best ways. We got to ballet in plenty of time. Gotta say again that this was a perfect restaurant experience. We are loyal and longterm customers and simple love Legal!!!
a wonderful place to meet out of town friends staying nearby. The food was very good and the service was exemplary.
The beginning of a great night. We enjoyed a very accommodating dinner before the ballet, located conveniently right across the street from the opera house. The host was pleasant and seated us promptly upon arrival (per our reservations) and the server was just as personable as he was efficient! Everyone at the table was pleased with their entrees. I would recommend Legal seafood to anyone coming into the city for a reasonably priced, great evening!
Patrick, the server, was outstanding. He refilled my water, gave great recommendations on entrees, cleared away the dishes, and even offered extra bread to soak up the mussel broth. I dined on the half Caesar Salad, mussels, and grey sole with finger potatoes, capers, and green beans. Every dish was prepared magnificently. If you like Dover sole, definitely try the grey sole. Excellent value at Legal Crossing. I would ask the restaurant to kindly bring back anchovies for diners who like them their salads. Thanks.
