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.

Nothing special by any means. A bit of arrogance from the hostess. A few desparate housewives from Jersey and mediocore cocktails.

For a special occassion, find someplace different that is genuinely more special.

I was here once before and food was outstanding. Most of it was great again this time, though not everyone in my party enjoyed their meals equally. The end of our evening was very nice with our server enthusiastically bringing a birthday dessert w candle to my Mother. But the overall service was sub par; we felt well attended to in the first few minutes and asked for a few minutes to settle in and decide on drinks. After that it just seemed to take an extremely long time for anyone to come by in terms of ordering, checking in on how the food is, ordering dessert. I or someone in my family has to actively flag a server down three different times during a meal in order to get attention after waiting a while which is not a good sign. It also was not so busy in your restaurant compared to other times. especially toward the end of our meal which lasted 3 hours. Every server and employee is entitled to an off day or be tired or have other things on their mind so I have no desire to see anyone affected directly by this review. Management of a large restaurant such as yours should ensure that all patrons and in my view, esp large parties are being well taken care of. Our restaurant week desserts arrived well before the others at the table who were ordering off that menu and timing was just off. Someone cleared the salt and pepper shakers and happy hour flyer off our table before we were done, as if we were overstaying our welcome. We were ready to go for sure at that point as it has been 3 hours due to the slow service. something was just off frankly.

We arrived very early for our reservation and they were most accommodating. The restaurant week menu was really a bargain. The tuna tartare was especially outstanding.

The service was amazing. I had a reservation so I didn’t have to wait. The food was amazing, we went for my fiancé’s birthday and got the seafood bake, Mac and cheese, and a Caesar salad to share. It was PLENTY of food! I was looking for something a bit up scale but not too snooty. This place was perfect! Highly recommend

It was a fabulous find whose only fault is its silly name. $1 oysters and half price happy hour wine only made the experience even better. Very indulgent waitstaff, food fresh and delicious, interesting. Loved the sharable sides/vegetables. Everything exceeded expectations and I'll be there again this week!

Great place for after work in midtown. Food is great. Sometimes you have to stay on top of your waiter if you're on a tighter schedule. Great $7 happy hour, with decent wines to choose from!

The food and service were great. We had oysters as appetizers, my husband had the lamb special and I had the mussels appetizer as entree. We both loved our meals. The wine glasses were good but extremely expensive.

For an area of town with a dearth of dining options this is a good find. It’s convenient to the theater district and a solid option of fresh and flavorful food. The menu is made of over priced basics and the service is very slow. For the price you’d expect better attention.

Food is fresh and well prepared (just had salad with chicken but nicely done with tasty dressing).
Place is relaxed with no pressure to eat and leave, especially considering it was a business lunch.

Service was bad - unhelpful and unfriendly. And they overcharged us, and their reaction when we pointed it out was: ‘we didn’t do it on purpose’. Not good enough - I would not go back or recommend it.

The ambiance and scene were the standouts for our visit to Legasea Seafood. As well, the happy hour and oysters were of great value. Food was good but nothing to knock you socks off. Nothing to complain about either. We had the salmon and the flounder. House wine, both the red and the white were better than expected selections. We would go back.

A little bit on the expensive side, but the food and service was really great. Slightly noisy, but not to an offensive level; you can have a conversation without raising your voice. Recommend the spicy crab beignets, I could have eaten those all night... I would definitely come here again, complimentary coat check (make sure to tip!) and excellent service and food all around :)

The food was good but we had an unfortunate table as it was right beside one of the waitstaff areas so we all we could hear was staff complaining about other members of staff. Plus they got our order wrong. My salmon was delicious though

Waitress was outstanding! We were quite late for our reservation (traffic coming into the city...) & they still sat us in 5 minutes. Ordered off theater menu to get to a show on time -food was ok. Hoping to go back & check out other options.
