About Legal Sea Foods - Park Square
The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Legal Sea Foods’ flagship location in Boston’s Theater District is surrounded by hotels and nearby Newbury Street, Copley Square and Boston Common. Just inside you’ll see a two-story cascading fountain, the center-piece of the restaurant.
With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker.
We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

Legal Sea Foods - Park Square Ratings and Reviews
I went to catch up with business friends and it was lovely. Since it was a Monday night, it was quiet. They had an excellent wine list and the waitstaff was very knowledgeable and recommended a terrific wine at a good price. I ordered the shrimp pad thai which was very tasty and a healthy portion. I shared a caesar salad which was very good and quite a lot of it. The waitstaff were friendly but not too overbearing.
This is our go to place when we're in Boston. The service is great! Someone at our table had a food allergy and the chef personally brought out something specially made for him. The food is even better from appetizers right through to desserts. We will be back as a group soon.
A waitress who only cared about one table (it was her former mgr) and food that was just ok. I was disappointed with this visit to legal. Not sure how you can mess up shrimp and garlic, but the shrimp was over cooked and the pasta was cold and stuck together.
Service was reflected in the tip.
Hard to go wrong with Legal. Great food - fresh, light and flavorful. Very good service - they bent over backwards to accommodate my companion, who is gluten-free. Close to the Theater District and the Commons. Parking on-site, with validation available. This locations does not have the views that you get on the Seaport and by the aquarium, but otherwise it was a great experience.
Seems tired. The location has a cool design, but it seems to be worn out. The execution of the food is fine, but not remarkable. If you want to go for a business lunch I would suggest it is fine as you will have a good space as the tables are well spaced out and can provide some privacy. But I would not seek out this as a dining experience.
I love Legal Seafood for the quality and consistency of both food and service. The staff is well trained and there’s plenty of beautiful fresh fish to choose from. This is my new neighborhood restaurant and I’m so grateful for assistance with dietary restrictions. Thank you!
My Son & I were going to the Wilbur and decided on Legal Sea foods. We have dined in your Warwick restaurant and enjoyed it. We were not disappointed with our dining experience on Sunday evening. Everything was wonderful from our ability to be seated quickly to your fine wait staff and finally, our great meal. If I am ever near Park Square again, you can be sure that yours will be my first choice to dine.
Although we had a reservation & the restaurant was not busy they placed us in a very crowded area with many groups w small children. Food was ok but not worth the price. Waiter was in a hurry to end our meal. Had to ask for coffee. He brought the check before our dinner was cleared. Place is a little shabby- bench seat was ripped!
Another great meal at Legal Sea Foods - Park Square.
A great location whether you are on a date or with a large party.
The sashimi starter was perfect in size, preparation and presentation.
The halibut, off the grill menu, was excellent. Some of the best halibut I’ve ever had. Presented with a lemon butter sauce (on the side) allowed me to enjoy the fresh taste of the fish alone, or with the sauce. The mahi-mahi, in a light curry sauce with jasmine rice was, likewise very tasty.
Desserts of chocolate mousse and “deconstructed” Boston cream pie we’re a perfect end to a fine meal.
The service was great; timely, with just enough attention, but not too much.
