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.

I love Legal Sea Foods, we don't live close to a restaurant so I seek to dine there whenever we are in the Boston area. On this occasion the service was sub par at best. The salad I ordered never arrived, we had to ask for my child's root beer order twice. Everything else entailed a lengthy wait. I felt we were overlooked in favor of other tables nearby ordering more expensive drinks and meals. The food was excellent as always, but our service experience will keep us from returning to this location.

took almost 2 full hours to order and dine. We ordered a basic meal, no appetizers, no deserts. Much of the wait staff was new. Manager intervened and compensated us for part of our meal. The food was excellent but we were rushed to eat and make it to the theatre on time.
I have dined at many Legal locations and had good to great experiences but this is the 2nd time I have had a "pre theatre" issue at "Park Sq". We will need to find another pre-theatre alternative.

Was seated by window but view was of empty street and a side of a building. Service was excellent. Raw bar Seafood appetizer was good, cocktail was good, seafood soup entree was very good.

Gluten free bread was a nice effort but was only ok. Probably 20% more expensive than it should be but is a safe, solid choice to entertain visiting friends.

We stuck to the classics, great salmon dishes, seafood casserole ,and I had a tuna nicoise appetizer which was large enough for my main course.
The staff was very helpful and gracious.
Food was delicious and worth the prices.

Legal is always a good choice when in Boston. They hit the sweet spot with high quality delicious meals and terrific service for "reasonable" price. All their locations are excellent choices. This location has window seating upstairs and a very interesting downstairs seating area. You really can't go wrong with Legal.

The presentation of all the food was very poor. The lobster was good. The ambiance was shabby . The server was lovely and really helpful. The only thing I’d be positive about was the service. This place needs a good clean and a refurb . Wouldn’t recommend it go again.

Legal Seafood is a great option for a gluten free diet. At least three quarters of their menu is gluter free and they even bring you a gluten free roll when the other rolls are served.
The food is always prepared well and delicious.

Was a birthday and restaurant didn’t even acknowledge it even though mentioned it in reservation. Food wasn’t as good as normal. Service wasn’t great! Wine was spilt all over tray and then subsequently all over table.

We were running late for our reservation yet the host kindly welcomed and seated us immediately. Our server Anthony was awesome. We only had time for a quick meal and drink and he rushed everything . I look forward to returning at a time where I can relax and enjoy a leisurely meal!

Staff bragged about their great and very large wine cellar, so, ordered the Stag’s Leap and got “sorry we are out”. Ok, ordered another Napa Cab Sav, 30 min. later still no wine at the table. Food was ok, sadly, not as good as their Boston Airport location, I know sounds odd that the airport food was better than their Boston flagship location… Waitress was fantastic kind'a and made up for the above concerns

Would go back but sorry couldn’t risk a recommendation to my friends and colleges.

Absolutely fabulous.! We had 10 people in our party and could not have had a better experience. Food was fabulous. Server Chris and entire staff was pleasant and fun. My colleagues are still raving about how delicious the food was and a special thanks from my friend who had an allergy and also vegan. The manager was especially helpful with planning out her menu for her. Thanks! We will all be back soon!

Good food- and if you're not up for fried then choose from the Grill menu. I had arctic char and it was very good. Wish there was a little more variety on the side dishes. But overall good value for what you get.

The fish is always perfect, and the mashed potatoes are to die for. Toss in some excellent wine and yummy warm french rolls to start, and you've got the makings of an excellent meal. The service was attentive, but leisurely. The only thing standing in the way of that 5th star was the disappointing bourbon pecan dessert -- really mediocre crust (at least by my standards!) and just barely warm.

We have always had a good dining experience in the many Legal Seafoods locations in the greater Boston area; however we found the food and service in the Park Square location to be truly outstanding! Flawless preparation, excellent, knowledgeable wait staff and a superb wine list made our pre-theater dinner memorable indeed. Within walking distance of most venues in the theater district, this restaurant was perfect in every way. Highly recommended!

Six of us went for dinner after the theatre. Our reserved table was waiting for us without delay. Our server, Jeff, was prompt, polite and attentive. He made us feel comfortable and answered several questions without hesitation and even went back to the chef and returned with the ingredients and recipe for one of our appetizers.
A truly enjoyable experience that topped off our night out.
