Went to Legal C Bar on the spur of the moment (needed dinner but were so done with the same old restaurants)... then I recalled this location. I’m glad we went - the restaurant is lovely, pleasing atmosphere and the hostess was super nice & professional. The food was delicious, and the waitstaff great. We will definitely be going again in the near future!
Very good food and service! Extensive menu so difficult to decide, but we both ended up with fried clams. Clams and fries were nicely cooked. Only complaint was that portion sizes were very different - a lot more clams on one plate than on the other. Easy to find, plenty of parking - nice place to meet!
We frequent Legal about once a month or so. Very consistent quality and service. This time they had leap day special. 2 for 1 lobster. Great deal
Always great service and food. You need more big cherrystones.
The food is consistently good at this restaurant. We have eaten there many times. Try the shrimp tempura if u like sushi and their claim chowder is the best.
Girls night out!
Great food, quick and friendly service .
Upon arrival the older male managing seating assignments at the hostess station was rather rude. We made a reservation a week prior w/ a request for a booth. The restaurant called to confirm our appointment days before, at which point they confirmed booth seating would be given. Instead they sat us at the closest table to the doors that was very drafty and cold. There were two booths open when our party of 4 arrived but they instead were given to a couple 15 minutes after we were seated.
This was our first time at the Derby restaurant location. We booked this appointment based on the last meal we had at the Legacy Place location. We actually ordered the same meal as our last visit, but this time the preparedness and quality of food was half as good.
Underwhelmed by this locations hostess mgr and food quality.
Hostess was rude and not accommodating. Food and drinks good but overpriced for quantity. Front section of restaurant drafty from front entrance.
Service was great and fast! Enjoyed a delicious meal here. High top seating area felt private and not too loud, which was a good find for a last minute Valentine’s Day reservation.
We eat here more than any other restaurant. Food is always good to very good. On 2/8/20, the food was very good with exceptional service from our waitress, Michele, I think was her name. The Open Table rewards once again did not work as the redeemed rewards I have show as invalid when the waitress enters the card number. The rewards on Open Table are worthless when they can/t be redeemed.
Food was over cooked and was saturated in oil. Had the butternut squash ravioli and scallops
quickly seated when we arrived with our reservation. fast arrival of our waitress once seated. food was delicious as always. we loved the drinks as well as the bottle of wine. allowed plenty of time to chat with our friends and enjoy a leisurely dinner. however, despite writing on our booking that the dinner was for a birthday, no one mentioned it again at the restaurant.
their salmon with pad Thai is the best
always a great experience
Made a reservation for 4, they reserved a high top table. In my opinion they should have reserved a regular table. We had our 80 year old mother-in-law with us, this did not work. Had to wait for a booth to open up. Then when seating us they were still in the process of cleaning the table. The previous guests spilled a drink everywhere and they were going to seat us in a booth that the seats and floor were wet. Moved to another booth. Service was very slow waited a long time to just get rolls. Ended up asking hostess for some as couldn't find server. My daughter got sushi but had to ask for chop sticks and soy sauce. They forget my mother-in-laws side of sauce. The hostess came over to check on us after table mess up. Told her about the service being slow. She offered us free apps or desserts for all of us. My husband had ordered clam chowder, so we figured this was going to be on the house. When we got the bill the chowder was charged. Turns out the server was never told by hostess about the comp. She ended up sending over bon bons for free I guess to make up for it and took the chowder off the bill. Overall the Employees were pleasant thru all the mishaps but the experience was disappointing.
It was great using open table to make a reservation and having our preferred seating available when we arrived. The server was friendly and helpful. The food was good, as usual. Though the price of alcoholic beverages can be higher than other places.
Worst waitress. Did not pay attention to anything the entire time.
Our server was very good but the food was a little below the quality we have come to expect. I would write this off to everyone has a bad day now and then.
Entrees were poorly cooked. Very slow service for an off peak time
The food was outstanding as usual. A little glitch with our order...had my son waiting extra time for his meal.
But the newish waitress was very apologetic and we got a free dessert. But the 2nd half bottle of wine should have also been on them.
Best crab cakes ever. Red sangria is awesome. Highly recommended.
Outstanding in all areas; the Wellfleet oysters, the Lobster roll, truly amazing and worth every cent. The service was excellent from front entrance to the care for my displaced credit card which was found after we left the restaurant.
Everything was great, but the seating was very cramped and right next to other people. We couldn’t have a private conversation.
We had a reservation for New Year’s Eve. We arrived early but were seated right away. Our server was outstanding. We were not rushed and she was very attentive.
The food as always was terrific.
The wait staff was amazing and the food was terrific as usual! One of my favorite restaurants. The only down side is it is a little loud but overall great experience
I was disappointed that the two choices on the menu I wanted were both gone and the fish that I ordered wasn't very tender and fact it was kind of tough. However the sauce it was in was delicious but the meat itself was overcooked. Our appetizers were yummy our cocktails were fabulous but the food was not up to par.
Awesome food even on a holiday
Appetizers were delicious. Main courses, big disappointment. Not up to Legal standards.
Also, we made very specific request that steak tips for 12 year old boy come with absolutely no sauces, flavoring, etc. Yet, they were marinated. He was disappointed.
Waitress was very good—helpful, organized, friendly.
Very good service from ashlie, food was great noise level is pretty high hard to have conversation!
Always great. Sean is an excellent Chef and Cassidy takes great care of her tables.
Nice place to meet up with friends for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. I had the sole which was very good
The standards have declined . Red wine served too cold. Vegetables cold. Fish barely warm. Bread overheated and chewy. Main courses served before starters finished and men served before the women. No fish specials . Quite pricey all this considered . Very disappointing. Won’t be back I’m afraid .
Very crowded and noisy. Great food and service.
Christmas with girl friends
Best crab cakes anywhere!
We eat here more than any other restaurant, usually at the bar when it is just the 2 of us. This night there was 4 and all of us enjoyed the food. Never have had just an average meal here. It was fairly crowded but the service was still very good. The Crab Cake Combo and Flounder Filet Florentine are just 2 excellent meals.
Probably won’t be back for a while. I am a FT working money and don’t want to spend money on a bad experience. The food was very sloppy, we waited an hour to eat and the waiter wasn’t so good. I know this will go unanswered but wanted to pass it along. Thanks
Excellent food and service! Improvement over the past.
First time at this Legal Seafood. Everyone of the staff was so pleasant. The whole experience (food, service, ambiance) was just great. Jess who waited our table was outstanding. For sure we will be back.
