You can always count on a Legal Seafoods meal never being a disappointment. The quality of the food and the service have remained impeccable since its beginning.
It is sad to see how this iconic restaurant chain has handled the pandemic. The simplification of the menu and paper napkins and cups for condiments made me feel more like I was on a picnic instead of a fine restaurant. I was a Legal Sea Food regular. and many times would get the swordfish. Since the reopening the cut of swordfish has notably changed. I am sure it is the same weight but instead of a thick cut it has gone to a thinner and bigger looking on a plate. Would you order a filet mignon if it was wide and thin? On a positive note the service staff at this restaurant was top notch!
Never disappoints! Sat in the Lounge at the bar. Service was great, food was excellent. This is our go to spot for great food, service and drinks.
List menu not the usual menu and same e pensive prices
Food and service were excellent. Partitions were up between booths, so it felt safe.
The food and the overall ambience was awesome. Legals is a regular spot for me for a special occasion, and they never disappoint. The quality of the seafood is delicious, and it's always a good time.
Many thanks for such a relaxing birthday dinner for Dad on Wednesday Evening, Chestnut Hill! In such a safe environment with attention to detail: spaced out table arrangement, simple menus, delicious fresh scrod, and swordfish. You always manage to have the best served in a simple way, the flavors of "just caught" enhanced with a nice salad, veggies and rice. And, for our son, a Burger with perfect shoestring fries on the side. Of course, we had dessert, a Boston Creme Pie, shared, and a strawberry cheesecake slice just for Mom.
All of this a few minutes ride from our home in nearby Webster Woods. With Thanksgiving on its way next week, we are so grateful for all your staff support!

Tremendous service from everyone
The food and the service were all outstanding. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. I will come back frequently.
Dinner is always great. Clifton our server is always wonderful!
The food was really yummy and came out fast! However, the hostess gave me a bit of a fuss when I asked to be seated outside. I had called ahead to make sure I could and there was no one even out there. With this pandemic I think they should be a little more considerate to people’s wishes. Other than that it was great and we’ll be back!!
The perfect place to feel distant enough from other diners during these times. Food was perfectly prepared. Service was friendly and efficient.
Rude staff, slim food selection, overpriced. Wobt be back
We love Legal! What a big plus to be able to eat outside! We have been eating here since 1975!
The food was awesome and great service. The only negative issue is, I asked for outdoor dining, but it was unavailable. That was too bad.
We’ve been eating at Legals for the past 35 years because we knew everything was over the top. The food, of course, was ALWAYS delicious. The wait staff and Joanne felt like part of our family. The chefs were excellent, and would prepare the food as we asked for. We were there 2 days ago and the meals were inedible. The wait person was as always the best. We didn’t complain about the food because it’s not worth it. I can tell you that after 35 years we will never go there again.
The staff were very conscientious and consistent with their observance of coronavirus protocols, the food was excellent - we had oysters, scallops, crabcakes, RI calamari, and shrimp, and we enjoyed them all. We will definitely return to enjoy more fresh seafood soon!
Chi is always attentive and enjoyable to talk with! He knows about the menu and beverages quite well!
The host staff and runner staff were personable too!
Food choices are limited, but understand because of the pandemic. Always love sitting at the bar and relaxing. We never feel rushed to leave. Thank you for making a dining experience feel real during these chaotic times!
Outdoor dining was pleasant. Food was very good. Waitstaff was efficient.
Due to Covid, dining has been non existent. This opportunity was a warm afternoon and lunch was spectacular. Thank you
Our waitress tonight was great, very upbeat and helpful. It made our date night fun and relaxing, and the food was amazing as well.
Service was implacable thanks for caring while this world is going through tough times.
Excellent service and food
Wonderful service, delicious and felt really safe!
We sat outside and I can’t for the life of me understand why this place wouldn’t have heat lamps in light of the COVID situation.
If Manager/Corporate wants to DM me I have some info to share that I don't want to leave on line.
I need to stop getting crab cakes elsewhere. Every time I do, I always regret it. Legal has the best crab cake , full of lump meat
My friend and i were thrilled with the setting on the balcony. It was a perfect fall afternoon for enjoying the food and service in a safe, socially distanced setting.
Spent a wonderful evening on Legal’s spectacular outdoor patio. Food was delicious and the service fantastic. Will come again!
very limited menu,No oysters or little necks. Will not go back until the menu is expanded.
Our waiter was very nice
I liked the food at Legal Seafood. Very fresh. Nice ambiance and good service.
The food is excellent and the staff do an amazing job.
Great food! Great service!
We had specifically come for my birthday for oysters, which were posted as available on the menu online. When we arrived we were told by at least two staff that they hadn't had any oysters for "months" and didn't know when they would have any again. The Raw Bar was completely free of ice and any shellfish. When I asked to have Oysters Rockefeller, they also said they had no oysters for this dish. Since it was my birthday we had wanted a little cupcake with a candle. Our server confirmed that they no longer do this either. I view this as false advertising and I have posted my view on Hungry Onion, and will be posting them today on Chowhound.
Besides the excellent food and service, I felt very comfortable with their Covid related precautions and dined indoors. Windows could be opened and tables were appropriately distanced.
Polite and efficient wait staff managed to provide better than average service even though a bit understaffed. Kitchen was in good form with everything we ordered being cooked with care and delivered hot to our table. All was well with our group of diners throughout the entire experience.
This is a great spot for outside dining. The patio is set up for distancing and the view is lovely.
Service and food were both great! Wished we could have sat out on the patio.
It was too cold!
Both my friend and I ordered the grilled scallops which were cooked to perfection (not overcooked). Onion strings were not on the menu but we were able to order.
We sat at a high top with nice open window. Glad to have such a table near fresh air in pandemic dining.
