Enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner. The fish & Chips were delectable. The mushroom salad appetizer was excellent -- just delicious! My friend had the chicken and enjoyed every bite. I ordered the chocolate/pudding, with vanilla ice cream birthday cake for dessert, and except that it took a long time for the waitress to bring it -- it was superb! Our waitress was wonderful. It's a lovely restaurant and we will be returning.

Food was very delicious and this turned out to be the best establishment we’ve tendered after a Tina matinee play and we have been to quite a few. You will definitely draw us back, play or no play. Dinner time again Legasea at its best...!!!

First time here. I had been wanting some fish & chips so that's what I ordered. They were GREAT! The fish was right on and they weren't greasy like some fish and chips are when you get them. Also, I loved the fries that came with them. Our service was also good.

The restaurant was very busy on the Friday night I took friends from New Zealand. But service was attentive and smart and the food was great. Good value for the $$$. Would definitely go there again and it's very conveniently located between Madison Square Garden/Penn Station and the theater district.

While the food was very good for lunch, the service was extremely slow. It wasn’t busy when we initially got there the rest was half full and over time got filled up. The time it took to serve 2 courses, appetizers and main dish was extraordinarily long and it took us a good 1.5 hours from the time we ordered to finish both dishes and pay the bill. The food however was excellent.

My biggest pet peeve is when ALL of the food comes out before your cocktails arrive. Somehow out food came out way too fast and it came with the bread which bread is usually served at the table before your appetizers come out. I was so confused.
I realize this is the kitchens fault not the waiters fault. The chefs need to know not to rush the food. Our waiter was amazing, food was really good

Our lovely server was attentive, informed the fried chicken had a light batter the scallops could’ve been cooked a minute longer. We also liked the buttery potatoes, as well as warm donuts (for dessert). Highly recommend for the food, service, decor & convenient location (to public transportation).

Ordered the Chicken - it was raw in the middle.

The waiter thought that was funny, didnt offer to replace it or something else, and still charged full amount on the bill.

Restaurant should be ashamed to serve raw chicken, but even worse for the server to think it is funny

I had branzino which was served with greed and hot pepper. Initially I mistook it for an asparagus and found it too hot. I had to order dessert to sooth the heat and wash down with water and coffee. Fish was delicious and the waitress was friendly. A waiter forgot to bring me a spoon. I guess they’re too busy.

Wow!! 5 stars all the way!! Wonderful experience. Starting with the warm & welcoming reception we received from the lovely Hostess who seated us at a romantic / relaxing crescent shaped booth, to our incredibly personable attentive waiter Aidan, we’re already planning our return!! The friend chicken was incredible & the linguini, so good! This place is a shining example of hospitality at its best. Keep up the good work. The bar is so high now. Thank you!!

Very, very, noisy place, it is almost impossible to talk. You must shout to be heard. Seafood is fresh, dishes are big, but are very simple, no creativity, dull. Expensive for what you get, bad value.

Since lunch was great, I came back with more friends for dinner. We ordered flounder, salmon, crab, butternut potatoes which were all seasoned & prepared perfectly. The table bread was also delicious. Our attentive waiter was very patient with us, even though it took us “forever” to order. All staff members were gracious & kind. Dessert & coffee were good too. Highly recommend for a relaxing time & superb food.

Dinner for 2. The grilled salmon was done to perfection. The fish & fries were as well. The calamari & zucchini appetizer was very good yet a bit heavy on the old bay seasoning. The 6 bluepoint oysters were excellent. Add one adult beverage and the total was around $125

Fist night in NYC, visiting from CA, here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary
Food and drink were delicious.....only downfall, long wait before meal arrived. The Cesar salad that was ordered never arrived. Waiter made up for the error with complimentary dessert.

I was solo and as a result, I will agree with other reviewers that it adds up quickly. My scallops were super fresh, but the preparation not particularly tasty. Noisy. Best for a crowd and order simple.

Accompanied by a good red wine. The fish (cod) tasted really good.

The food was mostly terrific, with a nice variety of raw and cooked shellfish and fish, even on a smaller menu. The fish and chips was great, not at all greasy, the tuna tartar, listed an opener, was a good size and really flavorful. The vegetable side dishes (asparagus, spinach, fries, quinoa) were all good and could make a meal for those who don't want fish or meat. The only two negatives: when our seabass came and the waiter introduced it as the bass with crispy skin, the fish was tasty but the skin was far from crispy and had to be scraped off. We told the waiter and all he did was say, oh sorry. And the prices are pretty high and add up quickly if you order a variety of items. And I liked the design of the place - comfortable, lively, but not overly noisy. I would return but consider my wallet while ordering.
