Seafood
Legasea combines a top-tier seafood menu with a fun-casual atmosphere for an entertaining dining experience that is to be expected from TAO Group. Executive Chef Jason Hall (formerly of Craft and Gotham Bar & Grill) and TAO Group Partner/Chef Ralph Scamardella have transformed classic seafood favorites, like the Clam Bake, into unique and shareable dishes designed for groups. Legasea is focused on its food offerings, serving up local, sustainable seafood of the highest quality, as well as delicious options for those not so marine-inclined, like the aptly named Steak Night. A lively, nautically-inspired setting brings the restaurant together to provide guests with an unforgettable evening full of good food and good company.

Legasea was a nice “find” on Opentable. The restaurant was lively and upbeat but not overly loud so as not to carry on a normal conversation. Service was Great! Allison our server was very friendly well versed in all the offerings as well as their signature cocktails. All the food was excellent from appetizer to entree. My Tuna tartare was very good.
The entree of diver scallops was ver well prepared, tasty and did done to perfection. All in all , it was an enjoyable evening.

There was nothing bad about Legasea and also nothing great. There were three of us, we each ordered appetizers, mains and one dessert and nothing stood out. Everything was ok. The one thing that did stand out was a waitress who spoke so softly we had to frequently ask her to repeat herself.

I expected more from the Tao Group. The food, although the server raved about the crab beignets and the entrees we chose, were little more than just ok. I initially chose the Seafood Marinara with lobster, shrimp, and scallops, and was presented instead with a dish loaded with tough calamari and octopus (NOT on the menu). If there was any lobster or scallops or shrimp, they simply had been marched past the pot on their way to somewhere else. I ordered mussels instead, and they were fine., nothing more. Awkwardly served in a pot that came almost to my chin, and with two small pieces of soggy bread, it was ok but nothing special or even close. My friend's pasta dish was also fine, but nothing more. It was a Saturday night, early enough not to be too crowded, so no excuse there for slapdash entrees.

It’s ok for a quick meal. But I was expecting more variety of seafood dishes from a seafood restaurant. Also I’m used to a big pile when I order fried calamari. This was mostly fried veggies with some calamari. But the food was very good tasting.

Honestly I enjoyed my experience at Legasea very much. The only thing that I would say is that they didn’t suggest us to get dessert when we finished our meal, or offer us wine to taster like the tables around us. But they did give us free cookies for my mothers birthday. I would recommend this restaurant especially because the food portions are large and the food is cooked perfectly.

I was really disappointed with my experience at Legasea. I was hoping for much better since it came highly recommended. The dish described on the menu was not what I received. There were two tables that were extremely loud behind us. The waiter did her best to accommodate the mistakes but there’s only so much she can do. It really wasn’t her fault.

I was so excited to dine on Friday and brought along my executive chef for dinner. It was upsetting that the one thing I was so excited to have was not great. I ordered the $75 seafood tower and it was so disappointing.. the Lobster tail was overcooked as were the mussels. We then ordered the bronzino as our main course with a few sides.. the only part of the dinner that was nice was the bronzino. Our server was just okay, she didn't really talk about the menu at all especially since we were never there before. After dinner we went over to the lounge in the Moxy Hotel and it was really nice. Ambience was soft and cozy and I wished we went there first, then headed to dinner. As we were exiting the door by the hostess stand, we didn't even get a goodbye. The hostess was busy playing with her hair. Sad to say we will never be back

The food was not worth the price. The oysters were probably the best part of the experience. Overall the food was extremely salty and not worth the hefty price tag. My boyfriend told the host we were celebrating a birthday and they did not acknowledge it when we ordered the dessert. The chocolate cake was one of the worst I've ever had. Save your money or go to a place like Catch where the food is at least good for the price.
