The customer service we experienced while eating here was exceptional. When we first ordered I guess they had a problem at the bar with a tap so our first drink took 20 minutes to get. We were not exactly happy and said something to our waitress. Not 2 minutes later the manger brought us a free appetizer and my drink but then when the bill came they also gave us our coffee and desert at no charge. Overall we were very impressed with the attentiveness of the staff and the quality of the food.
We had a terrible experience at this place. The worst part was the service which was just completely unacceptable. Everything regarding service was bad. The food was acceptable but when you are not taking care of, it is hard to enjoy any food. I will never spend my money in this place.
Terrible...took an hour to deliver our meal. When my Lobster Roll arrived, it looked like it had baked under a heat lamp for a LONG time. Never again. There are much better choices in Boston for Lobster Rolls.
Pricey but excellent food. No qualifications with the food. Service was fine.
Decent food and good service though slow to clear used items. Overpriced and mediocre seafood
Fresh seafood, good service, nice big booth perfect spot for lunch before a busy afternoon in Boston
Our seafood entrees were fresh and delicious. Our waiter was friendly and super attentive to every detail. The restaurant is nice and bright with large windows, and the tables are spaced reasonably so it doesn't feel crowded at all. We were there for a very early dinner so the restaurant wasn't crowded yet so I don't know if it would be noisy if it were full. Will definitely return to this branch of Legals!
They have the best gluten free options. Not too many places have as much variety including the Fisherman’s Platter (fried fish, scallops, shrimp, calamari) which is awesome!
Excellent food as always, and delighted to have our favorite server Woody who is always a standout for impeccable, attentive service.
Loud, too busy, slow service, tuna overdone - brown - disappointing. Silver lining -slow service allowed for extra time for conversation.
Appetizers and drinks were delicious, but my seafood casserole was incredibly dry and ultimately fairly unappetizing. I asked if some kind of sauce could be provided (normally this dish is full of a wonderful sherry garlic butter sauce), and the only apparent option was to receive a small dish of garlic butter (normally provided for lobster-dipping). The end result wasn't much better. I ended up only eating half of the dish (one of the more expensive options on the menu); our waitress (who was indeed wonderful) brought us a free dessert to compensate for the bad meal, but I would have preferred a choice between that and a comped entree. My friend and I have enjoyed many great meals at this chain in general and this location in particular, but I'll be hesitant to go back and risk another expensive disappointment.
We enjoyed the food a lot. Clam chowdah!
Service was spotty. Drinks came late. Apps came out at different times.
But overall, when in the mood for seafood, this hit the spot.
Whenever we visit from PA with our college student at MIT we always go to Legal Seafood. Our younger daughter has Celiac and we find their ability to handle gluten free requests quite excellent. They know how to avoid cross contamination, and even bring out GF bread. Delicious and safe!
This has to be one of my most favorite restaurants in Cambridge. I can always expect the food to be perfectly prepared and presented, the staff are professional and appropriately attentive without being intrusive, and management takes an interest in the diner's experience. An all-round very pleasant place to dine.
Some of my all time favorite meals have been at Legal Seafood -- and their quality remains tops.

LSF never fails. Staff was attentive. Anytime I have the opportunity I make sure I get in there.
Food and service was great. We had appetizers, mains and desert - everything was on point. Staff also provided a complimentary appetizer for booking through OpenTable which was a nice welcome touch.
Good food, decent service (food took a while to come out)
We had a wonderful dinner. Five is us dined. Everyone loved their dinners. The oysters were very fresh we ordered and tasted just as described. Our waitress was superb. Very attentive. We overall loved our experience. We stay at the Kendall Hotel often and will definitely be back to Legal Seafood.
Suuuuper slow service and food was mega greasy. Orders didn’t come out correctly either.
The waitress made a series of mistakes. She seemed more focused on expediency than customer service. When she poured the beer into my glass, instead of tilting the glass to pour the beer, she filled it as if pouring water and 2/3 of the glass was foam. She hardly refilled our glasses and didn’t check on us after the first five minutes. She fell while serving the table next to us and then never returned. As a matter of fact, after waiting for 30 minutes, we then called a random waiter who took care of our check and cleaned our table. Nobody seemed to know what happened to her. Also the time difference between our appetizer and dinner was literally 3 minutes which I thought was poorly timed. The food was great but too bad the service made dinner seem much longer than it needed to be.
Woody is the best server ever!
The crab cake is one of the best around here. Our server was very good.
Great food, attentive service, will be coming back to try more of the menu.
Legal is a good place for a business luncheon. The lunch menu is reasonable and food is good.
A(nother) great lunch at Legals! I had the blackened salmon tacos. They were really, really good, and very nicely spiced - not heavily salted, as I have found elsewhere. All 3 in our party thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Our server was extremely inattentive. It took us more than 1 hour and 20 minutes to get our dinners and another servers delivered it. Our server never stopped by to check on us. I’m a regular customer and have never experienced such poor service. It was disappointing. Thank you
The Apple sangria was very good.
Good food and atmospheres
Excellent food and wine, oysters were excellent, shrimp week rocks!
Good for business meetings, service fast and unobtrusive..
Solid outing at Legal for sure. My wife’s swordfish was overdone, but that’s my only complaint. Shrimp dishes and child’s half-lobster were delicious
Great food and drinks and great atmosphere. Service was a bit slow (especially at the end of the meal), but that was my only complaint!
They don't do a good job of respecting the "lunch hour" despite working next to a university with thousands of staff. We waited over a half hour for our food. Also, why did my boyfriend find olive pits in his rice pilaf when there were no onions to begin with? Never again.
Attentive and professional wait staff, great cocktails & food all well presented and served accommodating special requests. We enjoyed crab cake combo, grilled shrimp, salmon, cioppino, chowder of course, desserts and coffee. Dark chocolate mousse was perfection.
Great as always.
This time, my son got sick with a fish and chips meal that he ordered. I was surprised because the quality of food in this Resturant is excellent but unfortunatelly this time it was not the case. I used to go to the Restaurant in the Boston Harbor which offers a totally different experience than their unit in Cambridge. I'll go to the harbor Legal Sea Foods next time and do not risk again.
Always good at Legal. Staff was great
My mum and I visited Boston for the weekend of New Years and chose to go to Legal Sea Foods for dinner on the 31st as it was so close to our hotel and we love seafood.
Our food was amazing. Best meal we had in Boston. Service was fantastic! I wish I could remember our servers name as she deserves to be recognized.
Cocktails were delicious, food came quickly and everything was served with a smile.
We only wish there were a Legal Seafoods in Bermuda!
