    Kudos to our server Erica who made a great dinner even better. What a great personality and timed every thing perfectly. Great recommendations, too. We went Saturday the 14th, right before they closed all the restaurants so it was almost totally empty at prime time on Saturday night. I felt bad for the staff and the owners. But the food was excellent. A warm salad was wonderfully filled with mushrooms. The beignets are unlike anything I’ve had before and so insanely flavorful for the tiny things they are. Yes, overpriced at $15 for 4. Maybe make it 6 or drop the price to $10. But they are delicious. We had flounder which was nicely cooked but the coating it a bit doughy and heavy and was not bad but maybe too heavy for the fish. The scallops were excellent and perfectly prepared. The tuna tartare is insanely good. Sadly there were about 8 people in the whole place and only 2 came in over the course of 90 minutes. If they reopen, I’d be back in a heartbeat.

    Ok I revisited this place a second time because it was just that good.. Jaimie was very attentive while I waited for my guest to arrived this time I enjoyed this lavender drink which is delectably good sweet and strong and tasty . I enjoy the raw tuna tartar l, As my entree I had the flounder .. and my friend had the snapper.. I really enjoyed her snapper.. my flounder, I was not to thrilled about I felt like what ever breading it was coated in I can taste egg batter it was dipped it .. I felt it was a little heavy and thick . I prefer my fish to be on the crispy side. It was my birthday and I found it odd that I listed it on the open table when I made reservations and they did not make note of it. The girl that seated me Wednesday evening wasn't very pleasant she seemed annoyed and agitated.

    Many service issues...relish tray on table but forgot the rolls, Two servers hit our table with food for other guests and our server forgot she’d taken the dessert order, came back and asked again ...took 20min to arrive and then she was nowhere to be found to retrieve the check. Been here many times with better experiences at dinner. Lunch was not up to par.

    Food was amazing .. will be coming back . I had the mussels as an appetizer very flavorful so delish. Had the Brazino with a side of Mac and Cheese .. The Mac and cheese was so rich comfort food. My friends had the the pasta and clams and the Davolia . Everybody enjoyed there food . We especially love the fresh Hawaiian bread they served to us.. The only minor issue is the reservations were for 9;45 and the kitchen closes at 10. That was my only issue . Thank god I was on time. I also enjoyed my cucumber martini which was so refreshing.

    great good, but way.. wayyyy too noisy for me. It was downright unpleasant. They should install noise absorbers in the ceiling. I'll only go back at quieter times, if they exist.

    Our waiter was excellent - knowledgeable about the food, efficient, good service. The food was delicious although the portions could be more generous for the price. Easy to miss this place from the street since it's on the 2d floor, but once you get there, it's great.

    Amazing experience just we cane 10 Mins early and the hostess said we were two early with lots of seats available , maybe because it was Saturday night, Valentine’s Day weekend , and NYC we went to the bar next door and had a drink .. it was worth the wait , great food , even better service , highly recommend:)

    The drinks and apple cider doughnut was great but the food was not the best. I barely ate it and i definitely was not taking it home. On the bright side our waiter was awesome and the ambience was amazing. I just wished for the amount of money i spent, my food should have been good. I wasnt the only table. The table next to us wasn't fond of their food either.

    While Legasea’s food is good, service excellent (ask for Adam) the atmosphere was confusing. It’s brasserie vibe was not consistent with the loud uptempo music-or vice versa. Either way, the two did not seem to work together and it was hard to talk. I had the price fixe meal. The much heralded crab beignets were yummy. The Branzino was dry. But the chocolate pudding was delish. My husband had the flounder, which was good, not great. All in all, a pleasant meal out in a warm and comfortable setting with decent food and really good service.

    We were visiting New York City for the first time. It was Valentines dinner. Our only disappointment was they had offered one dollar oysters during happy hour. When we arrived and sat at our table we were told only the people sitting at the bar could have the one dollar special oysters we would have to pay full price at the table. That was disappointing and we did not understand why they would offer it only to people at the bar when their ad clearly stated it was

    Vibrant scene, comfortable seating and friendly service. The food was delicious too. We had the Happy Hour Oyster, the presentation was nice. The oyster was fresh, just a tad small in size. We tried their NY restaurant week menu and everyone at our table (group of 5) all tried different dishes, we were ALL very happy with our choices. The food was nicely presented and delicious. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Our friend made a complicated request on how he liked his coffee, our server did her best and complied. Overall, it was a positive experience. I was able to make a dinner reservation only 1 day before that Friday night; our table was promptly ready. There was no delay in serving even the restaurant was quite busy. It is a good option for a large group of dinner party in a pinch at the heart of New York city.
