Rita our server was Outstanding!! Truly cared about our food, service, and overall amazing human.
Expensive. Good quality just average. Paying for the name. Other options that are more affordable are just as good
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
Unmatched seafood. Attentive staff, great service. Perfect location.
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
Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. Three had lobster rolls and one had choppino. The food was excellent.
Excellent food and cocktails and excellent service!
We tried two of the meals under the heading that the chefs were testing these. They were very, very, very good. Fantastic portions of Maine scallops and swordfish and so well prepared!
Great waiter, hostess, and great meals & drinks.
Indifferent bartender was miffed we only ordered clams and bisque and that we took up his valuable real estate at the bar.
Forgot request for extra cocktail sauce and was steamed he had to actually walk to the kitchen when politely reminded him again.
At $70 for some apps and 1 glass of wine we really don’t need a rude tude on the side. Management needs to have a meaningful chat with this detrimental server.
Bartenders are the best!
Great food at a fair price as always. Service is quality and consistent
We had a terrific lunch after a Duck Tour and before heading to the aquarium! Food was absolutely delicious and our waitress was so nice. Group of 7 had a great round table booth!
Kinda funny that our kids love to go-to Legal Seafood, but the kids love their food too!
Visiting in Boston for the weekend and was told to hit up Legal Sea Foods while I was in town. It DID NOT disappoint. Peter, our server, was fantastic. Great personality and VERY attentive. Started with a hibiscus mule,the clam chowder, and fish tacos, big hits. Delicious. Hubby got the lobster roll which he thoroughly enjoyed, and I got the sole on the test kitchen menu. Portions were HUGE and well worth the value. Not to mention the food was OUTSTANDING. Finished by taking a piece of Boston cream pie to the hotel room, and devoured it. Would 10000% dine here again.
The food was great, location in Boston at Long Wharf is awesome; however, the service was appalling. The waitress was rude and literally needed to be loudly flagged down for service…for a party of six!!! I will be heading to other seafood restaurants when in Boston the next time. Shame on Legal Seafood for such HORRIBLE staff and service.
Dinner at Legal Sea Food was excellent. The cup of New England Clam Chowder exceeded my expectations. However, because the restaurant closes at 9pm, we felt a little rushed to finish dinner and leave.
We had a great dinner and the food was really good. We were prepared for longer waits but it was very long at times…..20-30 minutes before we got a drink and over an hour for dinners. But, we did enjoy the dinner and the waiter was very nice. I would go again.
Waited 15 minutes past reservation time. Then waited 10 minutes at the table just to get water. Staff was not helpful. When I asked to see my waiter, I was told I’d only waited for 8 minutes.
Excellent server, great food and drinks. We were satisfied
The food was amazing... We got calamari as an appetizer and it tasted awesome.. I got shrimp scampi and it was very good. I've had better but it wasn't bad either.. Husband got steak tips and he loved it. The drinks was also very good.
Lobster Rolls are to die for! Was so good came back the next night
We haven’t had dinner here in quite awhile. Tonight’s dinner experience was everything we could have wanted. The service was outstanding, the food great! Our waiter made suggestions for our meal that made our dinner even better. Thanks!
The food was fast, delicious and the staff was great. Will be going back on next trip.
A great experience, as always.
Our waitress, Jocelyn, was beyond phenomenal. She gave a couple recommendations that were spot on. The seafood was very fresh and good. Had a dish off the test kitchen menu; OMG. When I return to Boston, I will definitely visit again.
We made a reservation so we were seated quickly at a high top great table. Our waiter was attentive and always had water refills coming. He got busier at the end of our dinner and check out was a tiny bit slow. Dinner was delicious. We had-Lobster Mac (1-10 solid 10), Filet & Scallops (10 as well), Crusted Salmon (Another 10!!!).
Great family weekend spot for lunch or dinner!
My wife had crab cakes and they were excellent! I had grilled haddock and not to impressed with it. Very oily plate. Nothing like I usually have with that meal when we go. Kids meal was grilled cheese and looked really good. Till the next time we go back!
The food is excellent. I recommend the Oysters Rockefeller. The scallops and lobster were excellent! The service at the bar and our waitress were excellent and made sure we had a great experience. Can’t wait to go back.
So disappointed in our dining experience. Fish tacos were soggy and cold, taco shell burnt. Half chicken was overcooked, tasted like it had been sitting for hours, green beans limp and cold.
‘Blah’ Nothing ‘Special’, certainly ‘Forgetable’
The food was good overall. Meets the Legal standards over the years. The place has gotten pretty run down given the high traffic it gets. Service was friendly but not that attentive.
We have to eat here when we are in town. Never disappoints. Food delicious. Staff attentive. Lively ambiance!
