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.

I'm Usually not the one to leave negative reviews or comments, but what a horrible experience I had tonight. Since today is Valentine's Day My girlfriend and I decided to go out for dinner and give this branch a try since the one in Braintree was no longer excepting reservations. We both ordered cocktails and filet mignon, both well done and my girlfriends came to the table under cooked with blood coming out. We sent it back, when it came back to the table it looked like a burnt hockey puck. She then asked the Manager if she can change her plate to shrimp scampi, The manager kindly said yes then came back to the table and said sorry the kitchen is closed best I can do is take this off the bill and give you a gift card‍‍‍ so basically my valentine dinner was ruined and my girlfriend left the restaurant hungry never again will I return to this branch!

Over priced food that isn't even very good. My wife ordered the swordfish $35.00, and it came with boiled potatoes only. The first piece was way overcooked and inedible. The second one they brought was marginally better but drowned in butter and definately not fresh. You would think highend prices would come with food that matched. I will definately stay away.

The Galentine’s day with my sister, and 2 best friends, who haven’t been out at a restaurant in 12+ months, let alone without their children. Thomas’s service was exceptional. He was very entertaining, and extremely attentive to each of my girlfriends who deserved to be treated like royalty for the year they’ve had. It was clear that this was not Thomas’s first time making a Galentine’s day perfect for some lovely ladies. We’ve decided to make it a yearly tradition.

I cannot remember the last time I rated any Legal dining experience less than 5 stars. I ordered my “go to” dish which is the lemon caper grey sole. I’ve had it many times so I feel qualified to give an honest review of the dish. The sole was dry and crisp around the edges, cooked ok in the center. Needed a knife to cut the fish which is unusual. Bland steamed white rice similar to what comes out of a Chinese restaurant. There was not enough sauce on the fish to moisten the rice. I like my veggies cooked al dente. The broccoli was bordering on raw and again had no taste. I could have used a steak knife to cut the broccoli. My dining partner ordered the Anna’s Boston scrod. He deemed it non memorable and also had an issue with the dry bland steamed white rice. Our server Thomas G provided very good service. Restaurant is Covid compliant which is important to me. I hope that this experience was not a sign of things to come under the new management.

The manager/reception person Mark was definitely not taking covid social distancing policy into consideration when seating people. In spite of the entire place being empty, he was seating people on top of each other at adjacent tables. When asked about this, he was quite belligerent and his reasoning was that the other patrons seated right next to us had “requested that particular table” and he stated “ I’m not going to refuse them the table they want”. Well Sir, all I can say is maybe you don’t realize we are dealing with a very serious pandemic with cases in our area rising - over 7 thousand per day. So Mark, if you are not willing to do the right thing for ALL your restaurant patrons, not just the ones who “want” a certain table then I would ask that the board of health take a visit to discuss with you your seating policies and we will just not be returning here - and this has been one of my favorite, most frequented restaurants in this area — until it’s under new management.

My understanding is that the Legal Seafoods chain has been sold to a new restaurant company and I hope this sale happens soon because the Legal brand has been going down hill for the last 5 years.

Bottom line is if you are concerned about safety and appropriate social distancing at an indoor eating establishment - do not choose this location.
