Legal Sea Foods - Framingham Ratings and Reviews
I got the haddock imperial which I love at prime bar in wayland. The potato was so big that it was hard and not edible. They brought me a new one that was the same. The fish was way too well done. My wife got salmon and loved it. Maybe I was just unlucky. Let me know what you think. 508-298-3396
Very nice meal and excellent service. Being that it was Valentine's Day, the restaurant was very crowded. In spite of this, the service and food delivery was prompt and attentive and the meals were prepared perfectly. My only small quibble was that knives weren't included as part of the table service. That made buttering the bread a little challenging.
Went to meet an old friend for light lunch and a lot of catching-up. Ordered the Caesar Salad for my entree. The lettuce was “swimming” in dressing, great taste, but way too much.
Table next to us was very loud and we found it difficult to have a conversation.
Crab cakes were tasty and hearty. Scallops were great and waiter explained dry pack which means nothing added to cheat for weight. Boston cream pie was interesting with sauce and toffee crunches on top of a round portion- tasty but not traditional. Maple bread pudding was more like coffee cake
this restaurant manager claims that the state law only allows them to serve one drink per hour which is to true. The claim that because, apparently, they were cited twice because someone was leaving restaurant and driving drunk got caught. We were not driving but they said they can not serve more than one drink per hour. Will not go back.
Legal Seafood of Framingham is never a disappointment. We met friends on a busy Sat. night. We were seated promptly at a table in a side room which was less noisy. The food was delicious. Since we are watching our carb consumption, we were able to make substitutions for potato and pasta. Ample portions allowed for another small meal the next day.
love legal but it was too kaotic this eveving. The kitchen messed up BOTH of our dishes!~
the menu said my faroe island salmon was served with brown rice , but came with white. My guests tuna was ordered medium and came out refrigerator COLD!!!! complained to manager, they apologized. No complementary anything for the mess up!!! I think they have become too busy and not concentrating on quality!!!!
Legal Seafood needs no introduction to their legendary seafood menu. Our group opted for the broiled fish menu which unfortunately continues to get shorter over the years. For me, this is what they do best and should expand on that more.
I ordered artic char which was delicious, a generous portion cook very well. Our other diners ordered similar.
The service was great. Our only disappointment was desert. We ordered a dark chocolate mousse to share. The parfait glass was half filled with whipped cream, leaving only a small portion of chocolate mousse. Unfortunately, the mousse was like runny pudding. Really uneatible. Although I pointed this out to our server, he did not offer to deduct it from our bill. Not a good outcome.
Tom was our server. He was professional, thorough, and very pleasant. I had the fisherman platter with broccoli and butternut squash. My wife had scallops with mashed and broccoli. We finished it off 3 bon-bons each. Great table, friendly staff makes for a nice experience!
My favorite dish is a Caesar salad with fresh Maine crabmeat, but when supplies are low and I cannot get the crabmeat, I'll choose something else similarly healthy and tasty. This time it was the grilled shrimp and sweet potato with kale. I was outstanding. So delicious. I have never had a bad mean at Legal, and we've been going there--Framingham, Cambridge, Boston--for at least 25 years.
