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.

Great waiter
Great mac and cheese

Very expensive for small portions
Pretty place but won’t be back because I don’t think the salmon dish was worth the price not the Brussels sprouts ... I dine out frequently so was disappointed in cost

We enjoy eating at Legasea. It’s especially nice for a special occasion, and the service is generally very good. On Friday when we were there, the food was delicious and served well, and there our wait person was a little bit less attentive than we’d hoped. It was also pretty loud. Altogether, a fine experience and we’ll be back!

Good atmosphere and setting. It was a business luncheon and we had the fixed prix fixe menu which was well balanced. I had the mussels appetizer and it was excellent. It was quiet which is essential for a business meeting and the tables well spaced. Only negative was the lack of a cloakroom or place to put heavy coats in winter.

My second visit and this by far was the best. Dining with family and not during restaurant week makes the difference. My sis had maole bourbon pecan ice cream for dessert and a divine lost treasure it was for her.

Food here is top notch. Have been here a few times now and food always seems to be on point. The prefix lunch is the best in the area at only $29 for a 3 course.
The Tuna Tatar I would say is the best thing on the menu.

Grabbed a quick meal here after meeting my son at Penn Station. This is a very good option for the Penn Area. Staff was friendly and attentive and food was good. Menu is a bit limited but wide ranging enough so that most will find something to eat. The octopus app was very good as was the chicken francaise but it was a bit different, being in a cream based sauce rather than straight butter and wine.

We had a horrible experience. Worse than some mediocre restaurant. The fish was horrible and lacked flavor. Same for the fried chicken. KFC can make better chicken than this. It was so dry and unflavorful. We asked for some ketchup for our fries 3 times and it arrived once we were done with our meal. The worst part was that we went to celebrate a birthday and found a long black hair cooked into the birthday cake as I ate a spoonful. Horrible horrible HORRIBLE. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

Everything was great till the entree arrived. We ordered the Great Big Lobster Bake. The broth was flavorless. The clams were not cleaned properly. There was still sand in my dish

From start to finish, my table felt rushed by the waitstaff. It does not make a pleasant experience when the moment we have picked up our last oyster, with oyster in hand, the staff is asking if they can clear the plates away. We received the menus and could barely open the page before being asked if we were ready to order. At one point I asked if they would resist coming to our table for a solid five minutes while we chewed. The food was okay, I had the Black Shell Diavola, my mom ordered the Chatham Cod Fish n’ Chips, my sister ordered the Diver Sea Scallops with Brussels Sprouts and Mac & Cheese. We had a dozen oysters (super tiny) and the Spicy Crab Beignets. The spice is almost nonexistent in their dishes. The drinks were tasty.

We made a reservations at Legasea, for our party of 4, based on an article we’d read which highly recommended the restaurant. Based on our experience this recommendations was well off the mark.
The most significant reason to not eat at Legasea is the noise emanating from the HVAC system that serves the dinning room. We arrived for dinner at 6:45 PM for our 7:00 PM dinner and were seated at a table located at the end of the dinning room closest to host stand. Once seated it was apparent that the level and frequency of the background noise coming from above the ceiling was going to be a significant problem. We asked if it was going to be remedied and were told that they had been aware of it for some time but it was a building issue that had been ongoing and there was no way for them to deal with it. They offered to relocate us to a table as far away from the noisy HVAC equipment as possible, which we did. It was better, but not fully resolved. We watched as many other groups that were seated after us all ended up being moved as well. I would not recommend anyone go to this restaurant until this noise problem is fully resolved.
The service was good and attentive to our needs. The food however was average at best.
We will not be returning to Legasea given all the other restaurant of much higher quality in the immediate area.
