All four of us were extremely disappointed in our meals. We went to celebrate Mother’s Day and my son steak tips were barely edible, everyone else is was fair at best. Would never visit again.

One good thing here is the Legal C is nor Legal Test Kitchen and the menu expanded which was needed based on the prior shorter menu. The food is always good to very good here and this is our most visited restaurant through out the year. This past Saturday night the food was very good as well as the servie.

One of our rolls was stale but quickly replaced with 2 more. Vegetables were a little undercooked. Everything else was delicious.

A very disappointing dining experience. Mediocre service, a gin and tonic with flat tonic, and bland entrees. The appetizers were winners though - a fantastic salad for my wife and tuna tataki for me.

The waitress was inattentive and was observed spending more time talking with other staff as compared to checking her tables.

One of the Test Kitchen entrees was poorly conceived and was oddly plated (and had little taste). This item was taken off the bill which was appreciated. The other entree was bland with breading thicker than the fish itself. The side of green beans was forgotten and brought out mid-meal (and wasn’t very hot).

Legal is pricey and given the quality of the entrees, it was not a good value. In the past, we had great experiences at Legal C; however, the prior visit was poor and this most recent visit continued the downward slide.

We won’t be back anytime soon.

Our waiter Daryl was awesome took great care of us. We started with oysters. My wife had the the tuna with a salad. I had the baked Anna’s haddock with rice and asparagus. I do not think I would get the haddock again.

Delicious and good service. We liked that it was not crowded and we were protected by a petition. Noise was fine. Perhaps a few more choices in the sandwich/salad area would be nice.

First let me say that my family are long time Legal customers. We've hung in w them during the pandemic and through the sale. However the relationship is over, at least for now. The prices have rose ridiculously recently with no identifiable value added. They have lost their niche price to value relationship and directs us to other options on the south shore.

Sorry Legal...its over.

Food and service were great. When I made reservation on OpenTable, it asked if this was special occasion, and I checked Birthday (my wife’s). At dinner, there was no mention of the birthday, so I told the server, and he brought over a birthday napkin. Very disappointing. My son was in town for her birthday and was at the dinner.

Food was ok, not really impressed, menu was limited, the ambient is very poor and basic, tables are small and not very comfortable. The service wasn't very good either, waitress offered the side bread multiple times but never served it. I tipped well just because but for the amount of money these places charge I'm not really satisfied.

Sadly, dinner took awhile to come out. Our server apologized several times. Once it did arrive at the table, the crumbs in the fish dish were burnt which ruined the meal. I had never experienced a bad meal at Legal until this one, and I’m not in a hurry to return. They didn’t charge for that dish but it was an overall disappointing experience.

Stopped in for lunch to celebrate a special occasion. Service was excellent, food also.

Tables appropriately spaced and felt all health protocols were followed. Only second time for indoor dining since the lockdown so was a little nervous going in.

Our visit was during the pandemic and I felt very safe at Legal. It was so clean, the entire staff wore masks, and everything was spread out as needed. The food was absolutely fantastic. Legal has hands down the best clam chowder ever. Everything else was absolutely fantastic too - even the warm bread rolls to start! The waiter was courteous and friendly and checked in the perfect amount. I’d highly recommend!

A very pleasant dining experience. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Beverages appropriately chilled. I ordered the lobster roll. The lobster roll may appear to be pricey but it was well worth the market price. The roll was packed with a full half pound of lobster meat and presented on a foot long hot dog roll. Came with fries and cole slaw which were very good. My dining companion enjoyed fish and chips which he deemed very good. We were seated promptly and it was evident that the restaurant was in full compliance with Covid-19 restrictions.

Legals is always a good choice. The seafood is wonderful - and still is. It wasn't hard to get a seat and we were spread out at a decent distance. We enjoyed the night. We had good service but I think our wait staff had too many table to work with. It was a bit slow but it wasn't his fault - he wasn't slow it was just that he served many tables. Overall, great as usual.

Friends 50th bday. I had requested in the reservation to bring over 3 glasses of champagne when we got seated and acknowledged that it was my friend’s 50th. Nothing was mentioned and champagne was not delivered, which was a little bit of a bummer.

Always love going here! Sat at the “bar” table was really awkward for us, sat three side by side and one on the end, would have been better to do 2x2. It was freezing!!! The door was propped open so every time someone came into the corridor from outside we got slapped with cold air. The service was a little slow on drinks but the food was AMAZING. Sushi was so incredibly fresh! Calamari was outstanding, cauliflower too. Just so so so so yuuumy. We will definitely be back.

Sushi was top notch as usual. The ambience is not the best but that is mainly due to the pandemic and my wife and I like to sit at bars while we dine. Well done overall.

Sadly 2 of our 3 lunches were over cooked dry fish and we sent them-back.
Manager was apologetic and kind and tried to offer others , but we declined.
