Great seafood dinner. Sophia bartender was a pleasure talk with and gave great tips. Thank you
They had a new menu which is much improved. More lunch choices. I had a wedge salad which was very substantial and had salmon bacon instead of the usual meat bacon. It was excellent. Also brought a piece of cheesecake home with me and that was delicious too. The food is always good, as is the service.
It was a bit of a squeeze getting to the ladies room with my walker because there were a lot of chairs stacked outside. I think they should be stored somewhere else.
Great service and food.
my friend and I had time to catch up and enjoy a wonderful lunch. The stuffies (stuffed quohogs) were out of this world
Ive happily eaten here several times before but this time the lobster was lacking flavor or spice and the lobster bisque soup was also lacking seasoning and only contained two tiny pieces of lobster in it.
Kitchen could do a lot better
Excellent service and excellent food. I had the lobster roll and my Dad had the fried clams. Would highly recommend if you are in Boston and want seafood!
Best seafood in Boston!! Favorite dinner ever NYE right on waterfront
Good food. Great service. Would be nice to have a little bit of decoration for New Year.
Food was good, but had issues when we tried to order drinks. We showed our id and even our passports but the waiter kept saying he thought they were fake so didn’t let us buy drinks.
This was our New Years Eve celebratory dinner. We had never eaten at Legal Seafood before and didn’t know what to expect. I’m pleasantly surprised to be immediately seated and our server came right away. She was so pleasant and our meals were delivered in a timely manner. The food was superb. Couldn’t ask for a better experience on this New Years Eve!
The lobster is never a bad bet, you can't go wrong!! Out Tuna Tatimaki and Burrata appetizers were outstanding as well!
Very nice table for 9. Jolly front desk people, waiter was great and enjoyed his job which made our experience better. Great food!
The food was amazing as always. Seemed to take a little longer than normal but that might be due to inpatient children.
The swordfish is fantastic and my girls love their meals (salmon and chicken).
Bathroom was extremely dirty
Our server was AMAZING
with Covid 19 we were very fortunate to get a table in the corner away from others. The food was exceptional. Our waiter was very personable and was very attentive to us as we ate.
It was delicious! The food was fresh and well seasoned. Server was really good. Overall experience excellent! The sangria was DELICIOUS!
I chose to come here on a date with my partner as the last time I was in Boston I had a wonderful experience at Legal Sea Food and wanted to share another wonderful experience. We were seated in the noisy bar area, even though we had a table reservation. Upon seating a serve did not arrive to the table to greet us or provide water for at least 30 minutes. It took another 30 minutes to receive our wine that we ordered after asking another server and manager why it was still missing. The server forgot to ask my partner the sides they wanted for their dish so they were not placed with the initial order. Even after asking for bread and water, our server never brought it to us and I had to ask another server who was working a different section to bring us bread and water. Our appetizer was brought out with our entrees an hour and a half after we had already been waiting. We did not ask for our appetizer to be brought alongside our main meal. My entree was luke warm and not very flavorful compared to my previous experience at Legal Sea Foods. After dinner was completed the server started clearing plates without asking if we were even finished. I asked to speak to the manager and he blamed the poor service on it being his first day. He never apologized directly however. He asked me what he should do instead of proactively doing the right thing and taking care of customers. I told him to do the right thing and clearly that to him meant do nothing. We continued to wait 20 more minutes for our check to be brought. My partner walked over to the host stand and they rudely said to him that our server would bring it. Meanwhile our server was hiding in a corner of the restaurant to avoid helping us. Finally after 30 minutes of waiting for our check, I was able to pay. This is the most unprofessional and disorganized restaurant experience I have ever experienced. Normally I give restaurants second and even third chances, but this experience was so bad, that I will never return.
Portions have got much smaller than they used to be with prices that have gone up. Service was also not great. Waited 5+ minutes for our waitress to come over after our food came out because we needed condiments, water, and our appetizer dishes cleared. Definitely has gone downhill over the last few years.
Really nice. Gotta go
Loved this place. Great food and very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend
Consistent and perfect. Really nice to be able to count on timeliness and quality of food before an event.
Our waiter was great and the food was fine but I had hoped for a more varied menu. If you don’t want anything outside of your basic grilled or fried seafood options, you’re basically hosed. I could have sworn they used to have more creative twists on salads and some tofu stir fry options. No longer an option here, I guess. Too bad.
Waiter Rick was excellent!!! Great food, service, will return soon!! Fresh crisp delicious seafood
Legal is always a dependable choice for seafood when dinning in Boston. Food was mostly great. Only complaint was the scallops that were in our dishes were a little over cooked and chewy and not served hot. Other items were delicious, cooked properly and served hot. Our waiter did a decent job, he was noticeably busy. Only disappointment with service would be he did not ask us if we needed anything else when he dropped our mains. We did need something and had to wait 5 minutes into the meal for him to return. All in all for a busy Friday night, the meal and experience was very good.
Delicious as always! Great service, food cooked to perfection.
Rita our server was Outstanding!! Truly cared about our food, service, and overall amazing human.
Great place to eat. Delicious food.
Expensive. Good quality just average. Paying for the name. Other options that are more affordable are just as good
Unmatched seafood. Attentive staff, great service. Perfect location.
fresh well prepared sea food. my whole lobster was perfectly steamed and the shell pre-cracked at strategic points that really helped at getting at all the delicious lobster meat. our waitress was terrific: we were on limited time because we were going to a Bruins game and she managed the food delivery so we were able to get to the game on time. she was also very friendly and energetic and checked in efficiently with us without intruding
A Boston staple.
Waiter spilled a full glass of wine on someone on our table. Accidents happen that’s all good but the manager didn’t seem to c
Absolutely delicious! All of their fried options are gluten-free!!!! Chickpea flour used in the calamari and french fries. My people on Long Wharf!!!!
One of my favorite places in Boston, love the seafood and the location!
Food was way under par for the price.
Always a great time. Food is top notch.
The server was great. The food was ok, expensive for what we had. The bathroom had no paper towels and needed service. I would not go back
