Food was delicious. Waitress brought me the breaded haddock instead of grilled. It was delicious but would have preferred grilled. She also forgot to bring an espresso and coffee so we reminded her when she brought the bill. Overall, we love legal seafood.
Excellent customer service and the food was delicious. Well prepared and temperature was just right. Thank you
Chowder Day so $1 cups of Chowder on top of great food and service made it perfect day at Legal Seafood!
Legals has always been very consistent for us. Some of the best appetizers around
Fish is always fresh and well prepared! Our wait staff was delightful and attentive.
Food superb, waiter Jeffrey and bartender (forgot his name, but from Croatia) beyond outstanding. A wonderful date night for me and my wife.
Came hungry straight from the doctors! Glad we stopped at Legal. Double glad we asked for Judy! Great serve and food as usual. Grilled salmon and crispy fish sandwich were our choices. Started with Legal’s world famous chowder. Ended with a delicious slice of pumpkin cheesecake! Nice quiet table with plenty of “Covid” space. Can’t beat Legal in Framingham!
Always high quality food & service- love this location.
There were bones in the baked haddock, but our server fixed the situation right away. Overall great experience, our server was wonderful.
Great service. Fish tacos were tasty. Will visit again.
Smaller portions and bread was stale. Value has deteriorated.
We ate in the bar area. The ambience was just meh. Food was delicious.
Lovely lunch of fresh seafood.
Great atmosphere, great waiter, food was very good!
The food was very good as usual. One of our favorite restaurants.
NYE dinner with family. Legal never disappoints. The food is always good and the service is consistently good.
We were concerned with COVID but we were presented with a large booth, far enough from other diners.
Food was very good ! Jeff, our waiter was there from another location and was excellent !!
Great food and awesome host. Would recommend without no doubt.
This is not the Legal Seafoods from the past . Since it was sold I say stay away!
I was so disappointed. This isn’t my first time at Legal and usually it’s great, especially for someone with gluten allergies.
We walked in, got our drinks, and when we went to order they were out of gluten free bread, calamari, and steak tips. At the end we weren’t offered dessert or another drink.
Our waitress barely came over to us. It took 20 minutes of get our check and then another 20 for her to run my credit card.
Not a very pleasurable experience this time.
Lunch is overpriced and not always good. Scallops tasted bitter and bread stale. Lobster macaroni and cheese however was great.
Foods great, customer service is quick and efficient
We hadn't been since June 2021 and we had a wonderful experience on December 2021. The waiter and staff were all very attentive. Also glad to see that they have sole back on the menu!
Holiday night, restaurant not full so service was excellent and noise level low. Excellent food
Went on Christmas eve for an early dinner. Place wasn't packed at all. Food came out hot and fresh. Server was very attentive. Defiantly recommend this location.
Well, you asked. Are you sure you want to hear this?
While the overall experience was ok, but wasn't comeasurant with the cost, I feel I can only express my visit as somewhat of a letdown. The last time we dined with you I said to myself, the heck with the long drive and the pricy menu, the experience will be well worth it, I confess was some time ago, maybe a few plus years.
With that said, let me describe that previous visit. We ordered two 2lb baked stuffed lobsters, because we've had them before and you made them the best by far. The wait staff bought them out and they looked so fabulous that they should have had armed guards as everybody eyed them as they passed by. The stuffing was piled with more seafood bulging from the inside begging to be eaten. Everthing was perfect.
Skipping to the end of the meal, you served us some black tea that was so fantastic that we had to ask where iff came from. You staff promptly wrote down the source of this delightful beverage. It was served with a fancy steaming tea pot and a tea infusers loaded with fresh tea leaves brewing right in front of us. Delightful. Complemented with a fantasticly presented dessert. It was the most memorable evening well worth cost to which I never even remembered how much it cost.
I didn't care!
Now last night's description of the evening wasn't quite t he same. We had asked for nice spot in a booth somewhere and with plenty available got put in the corner next to the back side entrance to the restrooms, with the brooms and what i asumed was little kids high chairs staked up. No big deal, we got up and moved closer to the center of the room and informed the waitress, no big deal. All was fine again.
We ordered the Oysters Rockefeller and the Mussels for and appetizers and while they we're ok, we were expecting something always a step up from the Legal Seafood kitchen. They were quite ordinary, or even just plain like you would get from much lesser establishments. (cont)
The scallops are too small. The place is just dated. It hasn’t changed since it opened. Scrimping. No longer a fish place but a nouveau cuisine Establishment with sharks hanging from the ceiling.
Still the best clam chowder and fried clams.
The menu has changed and is too limited. No steamers or other old favorites.
Always a great dining experience- food was great and service was excellent
Great food, excellent service. Would definitely recommend it.
Everything was perfect, ease in making reservation and food was as usual, delicious.
Server was beyond amazing!
Dinner was out of this world!
Birthday treat was a special surprise!! Loved every minute!
Always a treat coming here for dinner. Excellent cocktails to start, the Tuna Tataki, followed by Fried Shrimp w Fries and Broccoli. Great service. Love it!!
Legal is still Legal: good service and excellent food in a big room with reasonable, but high, prices.
We went with another couple for a Friday night dinner. The host staff and the service staff were all wearing masks, but of course, no patrons were. It felt like a risk.
We were served quickly, drinks were large and well made and the food was great, especially the scallops. Sides were also good - the Sichuan string beans were particularly appreciated.
No room for dessert.
We'll probably wait a while before coming back. Even a great dinner isn't worth getting sick...
The food is always hot and delicious. The staff is friendly and service is quick.
Great meal and service! My only suggestion is to provide better instructions to the food runner who delivered our bonbons. You really need a fork and knife to open these little frozen treats. The chocolate sauce is a nice visual touch, but it’s like handling a greased bowling ball. Save the sauce for your regular ice cream deserts.
Waiter Jeffrey was Outstanding
Very personable and educated us on the restaurant and company
Also very attentive and anticipated all our needs
Legal is so reliable for excellent service and top-notch sea food. We went for a lunch and it was an excellent meal.
