The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish.
Virginia is for lovers (of seafood)! Our two-story restaurant is double the fun with entrances on both levels for easy entrée. Choose to make a splash in the downstairs dining room or in the bar upstairs. Our landscaped interior patio is also a popular lure.

Our convenient restaurant location within Tysons Galleria will get you hooked. Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. 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 being named “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” in a nationwide poll by USA Today (2013) and and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

We chose Legal Seafoods because we were looking for quality fresh seafood. We were not disappointed. We also had a great bottle of wine for a surprisingly affordable price. The service was gracious but not attentive. The noise level made conversation difficult.

HI, we were seated promptly and we got off to a good start but food took a while which is ok since it is made to order and it did come piping hot which is an important thing with me. But in between ordering and food arrival our waitress disappeared and so I asked other waiters for water...first drive-by waiter did not get it...the second drive-by waiter said he was aware I needed water....well if everyone is aware of this problem lets fix it....'bring the man some water'....a simple thing. So waiter #2 eventually brought some water and then our own waitress appeared so I asked for more water and some more bread while we waited.... and she asked if there was anything else we needed and my wife said never mind about the beer she'd ordered.

I put in the notes and also let the waitress know when we arrived that this was a very special birthday dinner. The place was pretty empty except for maybe seven tables. There were several waiters or waitresses there. Our waitress continually disappeared and because we had children at the table I had to continually get up to find her to ask for the menus and then for missing items and then for the dessert menu. I spent over $200 and although the food was exceptional and the manager tried to help at the end, it was a very disappointing experience and one I will not repeat.

There were plenty of tables available and was a quiet setting. Because it wasn't that busy I figured we'd have a decent service. The apps were good (soup and calamari) but our dinners were not. We've eaten at the LSF in Crystal City a few weeks before this location and had a great experience. But the same entree I ordered was a very different plate compared to the Crystal City store. The casserole was overcooked and charred on the top. I didn't want to cause a scene, so I didn't make a big deal about it. And it wasn't until the next day did I hear my husbands fish and chips was the worst he'd ever eaten. It was completely lacking seasoning. Will be our last visit to Tysons and we'll stick to our original location, if we choose to go again at all.

We've been to Legal in DC and Crystal City before. First time at Tysons. Good as expected, though there was a little mix-up with our order and not much effort at restitution.

The bloody Marys were good. The special salad was wonderful. I had the cod special with mushrooms and tortellini and it was delicious. My dining companion had the ciopino (spelling?) and while it tasted very good, they said the shrimp, the clams and the calamari were tough. Will give it another try.

We enjoyed the seafood. Rarely have we seen such a discombobulated wait staff. Getting
rolls or water took reminders and the original waitress remembered nothing. She never
checked to see if our meal was satisfactory. When it came time to get the check, she disappeared to the bar area to catch up with her friends.
One would expect a better coordinated staff/should we say professional staff?

Food was pretty good and the service was great, ALTHOUGH, the men’s restroom was gross and disgusting! I had to complain to the manager and he didn’t seem to believe my suggestion to clean the restroom more often was warranted.

Excellent service and attention to food preparation for gluten allergy. Manager personally served those portions and food was prepared separately to avoid contamination. Waiter was very attentive but not pushy. Will continue to return to Legal Tysons Corner.

Dinner at Legal Seafood is always a treat and always consistently good. I tried the special fish of the day instead of one my favorite menu dishes and it did not disappoint. Service was excellent also with great care to ensure my meal did not contain anything I was allergic to.

We have recently rediscovered Legal Seafoods and have really enjoyed our last few meals here. In particular, we have a child with Celiac disease and hands-down Legal Seafoods has been the best eating out experience for accommodating that no-gluten restriction. They go over and beyond our expectations for ensuring that his food order is safe and just have a ton of options for someone with gluten allergy or intolerance. Plus, the seafood is just delicious and very well prepared. Service is always excellent.

The lobster was great. The coconut shrimp not so much. There was an odd powdery texture that we thought at first was raw batter, but may have been curry powder? Not one of the better coconut shrimp dishes we've had, and my husband LOVES coconut shrimp. I asked for dressing on the side for my salad and, of course, it was not.

They seated us at an inside booth, and we were glad we had a comfortable table. After a bit, I realized the other side of the wall, a thin wall with glass for the upper half, was the kitchen or dish washing area? It was loud and I could hear them arguing. Not great for an early Valentines Day dinner - or any dinner for that matter.
