Great dinner. My boyfriend and I went in on a date looking for some healthy options . Our server was kind and very knowledgeable . He was a great balance of personable and professional which allowed us a great meal. The chefs prepare our meals expertly and even modified them slightly to keep in our strict eating plan. Very great experience. Thank the chefs for me

We usually go to the Legal in Boston, but decided to frequent this location because of "Restaurant Week". The meal was okay, but not really up to the quality of previous visits to other locations. With so many great restaurants out there, do yourself a favor and go explore other establishments.

We had dinner on 1/14/18. Service was excellent- attentive but not overbearing. Food was very good - calamari was cooked perfectly. Fish & chips was a generous portion and cooked well. Swordfish piccata was tasty, but pasta was a little gloppy and stuck together. Maple bread pudding was a great ending.

Easy to book a reservation and very quick to be seated once I arrived. The food was fresh, authentic, and delivered promptly. Wait staff was average - no complaints, but nothing out of the ordinary.

We visited the Warwick Legal Seafood on Sunday New Year's eve. It was crowded, but we were not rushed at all. Service was excellent, as was the food.

One of our guests has a shellfish allergy and they were very careful with our food. Each time they explained how it was prepared when brought to the table. A great experience for that first time guest.

My husband and I have spent every Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter at Legal Seafood for the past 6 years. We are retired, have had a lifetime of cooking for families and it’s a wonderful tradition we started. Sometimes we invite family members and sometimes not. We usually have a few additional dinners at Legal during the course of the year when people are visiting or just to get out.
Thank you for your wonderfully consistent sea food!

Haven’t been here in 10 years until Christmas Day.

Best server I have had at any restaurant...ever! Food was great, and they did not try to rush us out even though they were busy.

My family chose to dine at Legal's on Christmas Eve. We chose this restaurant because of the quality of the menu and we could be assured of a somewhat special meal. The waiter's banter diminished our experience. It was clear that he wanted us to pace the meal according to his schedule, either to turn the table or so that he could leave. We felt rushed when we would have liked to have lingered over a leisurely meal. We will not return to this location any time soon and will not recommend it.

An excellent choice for a special occasion. Service was fast and efficient. We doubled-down on appetizers. The lobster bisque was rich and creamy and the jumbo shrimp cocktail was--as the name indicates--jumbo and plentiful. I thought their cocktail sauce could have had more tang. The shishami tuna was excellent and they offered a warm and sweet butternut squash side that melted in your mouth. All in all, an excellent dining experience!

Excellent food. My salmon was fresh and very tasty. I started out with a chowder for an appetizer. This was one of the best chowder's I have ever eaten. Our waiter, Keith was very helpful in our selections for dinner and was very attentative to our needs. Can't wait to go back for dinner real soon.

This was our first time at a Legal seafood restaurant and we really enjoyed it.
We both had diferent Salmon dishes that were amazing and our waiter was excellent. He kept on top of things and was always attentive to our needs.
Would highly recommend this seafood restaurant and will definitely return.

We were very disappointed with the Warwick RI location compared to other LegalSeafood restaurants. The meals were bland and expensive for what we got. We had previously fined her and it was always better but this was truly disappointing!

We won't be stopping in again!
