My boyfriend and I stopped in for a late dinner, seeing as we work odd hours. We were immediately greeted with a smiling face and a warm greeting by the host. We requested to be sat in the bar area, and our server Emilie D. came right over to us and greeted us promptly. She recommended dishes to us that we loved and even recommended a dessert for us that we took home. We will most certainly be requesting her for our future visits to this location! Thank you Emilie!!
Dave and Arlene :)
Good but not an amazing experience
The fried clams, usually excellent, were very small with too much breading.
We always love eating at Legal Seafoods!
The manager, Kevin, is so friendly and always
makes us feel welcome!
The food was excellent, but based on all the options within a 2-mile radius, the prices were high. I suspect our waiter has not been on the job for a very long time. The simple task of filling each water glass seemed to confuse him, and he needed clarification on what was ordered more than 4 times. Two of us ordered the exact same meal. One came with white rice and one came with brown rice (as was on the menu) for no apparent reason. Lunch for 6 without any alcoholic drinks OR lobster, came to $170. Lunch.
Since posting this review, the DM called me and asked a lot of questions about our experience. He was genuinely concerned.
The service was exceptional. From the hostesses at the front door to our waiter and servers, they provided friendly, prompt and very diligent service and attention. It was a very pleasant lunch!
This place is always a first class experience
Great lobster. Weak drinks.
Another great dining experience at Legal Seafoods. This night was just a spur of the moment decision and it was so good. This location is great and the staff is friendly and accommodating. We dine here several times a year and it is always excellent.
My wife loves this restaurant! I highly recommend getting a reservation. If you try to walk in, you will be waiting a fair amount of time.
It was late...waiter more interested in going home than serving a meal at 9:30 PM...I guess he would be more attentive at dinner time..
Carlos is always the best - and is one of the reasons we come to Legals Framingham.
We had another fine meal at Legal Seafood for a family birthday celebration. My only difficulty with this restaurant is, at times, some slow service. I like to come in, be seated, and order drinks to enjoy before eating anything. Sometimes I have noticed that this process takes too long -- too long to get a drink order in, and then too long to get the drink brought to us.
The slow service can also extend to the food delivery, but most times, it is well worth the wait because the food is generally very good/excellent. I had the lobster bake and it was just awesome. So if you love seafood, and don't mind some slowness on the service front, then I definitely recommend this restaurant.
Very good seafood
I have been to Legal Seafoods in Framingham many times. Sadly, this last time was a major disappointment. The host was very accommodating and seated us at a round table for 6. Our waiter was a pleasant young man who took our orders immediately. Then the experience went downhill. He took no notes of our orders and we figured he must have great recall. We were wrong as much of the order was wrong. The service was frenetic -- felt more like a diner than a relatively expensive restaurant. Waitstaff was poorly trained reaching across diners to deliver food; diners having to point to the dish they ordered. Worst of all the seafood we order was poorly cooked (grilled scallops were barely browned and very soggy; fish and chips overly breaded). This has been my "go-to" restaurant for family gatherings. We will have to find another location.
Food was great very consistent, server was one of the best I ever had was on top of everything.
Great time! Good food!
We had lunch after my son’s confirmation ceremony. Our waiter was very nice and professional. We always enjoy coming back to Legal Seafoods!
Loved my Cajun Halibut tonight... moist, perfectly cooked. Shrimp Cocktail, so good, to start. Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay rounded out a great meal.
Food was delicious and our waiter was great.
Food was excellent and also service. The only negative was the a/c was freezing. First semi-warm day and it was so cold in the restaurant. Had to ask couple of times for it to be turned down.
For some reason the front desk service once again was weak, at best. Attempted to seat us in the worst 2 seat option in the entire restaurant, walk in would be fine but with a reservation totally unacceptable. Excellent host then gave us a nice booth. Exceptional server !! Excellent food as always !
My dinner was excellent, but I was disappointed that they have taken Coconut Shrimp off of the menu. I had specifically chosen Legal Seafood for my birthday dinner because I love the Coconut Shrimp. We also ordered an appetizer that we always order, however they had run out of it.
Very good food. Very nice to us. We will be back. The food was cooked just the way it should have been.
Always a great dining experience. Food is fresh and well prepared.
Great as usual! Good quality, always reliable. Service was great!
Legal is a great spot for seafood... especially in this area it stands out. My house salad and grilled shrimp was excellent tonight. Chardonnay, perfect.
Service was excellent, my Halibut was the best I ever had. Server was right there every time my glass was almost empty. Four star at 3 star prices. Highly recommend.
Judy was spectacular as always. I had the salmon with broccoli and coleslaw. My wife Had salmon as well. The service was fantastic!
Wonderful meal! Nutty salmon was so delicious. Perfectly fresh.
Our server Judith was welcoming, courteous, effective and professional. Our food was prepared as we specified and delivered to us efficiently. Manager and a few of the staff came by our table to say hello.
Very busy on Easter... service was fair. Clam chowder very good as usual, but seafood casserole too salty. 1.5lb Lobster good.
The clams in the clam chowder were very chewy and the Jasmine Special shrimp lacked flavor and was dried out. It used to be so good and now it's not.
The food is good but not great. The presentation of the food on the plate is my main complaint, especially when the price is factored in. The main entree fish is piled over the side dish like the rice. To much rice on the plate.
We went for Easter brunch. After being forgotten by servers when we were first seated everyone went above and beyond to apologize for the mistake. As always he food is great.
Food was delicious and prepared exactly how it was ordered with special requests. Ally our server in the bar was wonderful.
We invited our adult grandaughter to join us for a birthday dinner. Unfortunately, we must have hit an off night for the kitchen and serving staff. We all ordered the Cioppino which we've enjoyed many time in the past.
We received our requested "lobster bibs", but we had to find a server to provide us with soup spoons and shell fish forks. When the dishes were served, we saw the lobster claws were not cracked. We eventually found a hostess seating a group near us and requested lobster crackers. Two were delivered and we requested a third for the other diner in our party.
The food and wine were up to the standards we have come to know at Legal Seafoods.
Always good food and great service.
We have been going for 10 years and have never had a bad experience
Awesome chow again tonight. Grilled shrimp with snap peas and a house salad... sesame tuna, cherrystones... all excellent. Sonoma Cutrer, our usual rounded out an excellent meal.
