Wonderful Food Experience!

We just celebrated two birthdays with friends at the Legacy Restaurant. The food was by far the very best. Everyone enjoyed their varied entres and the deserts were wonderful. This is one of the finest restaurants in The Villages, Florida.

The servers are professional. The food is outstanding. Their frequent diner rewards program always seems to qualify for free food & substantial discounts quickly. And, with a membership, you can make reservation for five. Well worth a visit!

We stopped by this restaurant based on the trip advisor reports. It was outstanding. One of us had the 5 oz filet and the other had trout. The filet came with two sauces - one demi glaze and one peppercorn. A starch and vegetable accompanied the meal. Both dishes were perfectly prepared. Bread sticks are served Salads and soups are...

Always upper class atmosphere and service. Group of 30. Slow on getting entrees as dome ordered appetizers. Food always very good and dependable but now dated. May need some new and exciting entrees and combos. Chicken Marsala good but missing a kick, my wife's Legacy Chop ordered medium, a bit too rare near bone. Took it back and returned perfect... More

Atmosphere is refined and quiet,service is prompt and complete. The servers actually anticipate your needs. The menu has something for all tastes with food prepared and served in an elegant fashion. When we really want to treat our guests this is the place we go.

It is rare that I ever give a 5 star review, but the Legacy Restaurant is deserving of a perfect score. The menu was diverse, offering something for everyone. Our Brie appetizer was outstanding. Our entrees of the Legacy Chop and the Salmon Mateo were over the top. We couldn't remember the last time we had such a perfect meal.... More

There were four of us and all the meals temperature wise were hot the way we like it. Excellent food, our server Mercedes was very nice and thoughtful. We had tilapia with risotto, (2) stuffed sole, and the ribeye steak was great. We will always go back.

Whilst very understated on the outside (not even a sign), very grand, jet set trendy eatery with a real feel good factor on the inside. The 'place to be seen at' type of establishment. The very attentive waiting on staff couldn't seem to do enough for us (I was hoping they might even take care of the bill while they... More

Arrived about 1:20PM and was seated quickly. Our table was in the sunroom overlooking the golf course. George, our waiter, was efficient and pleasant. We ordered drinks first and then were left alone to converse awhile. Our orders were taken and promptly served. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. We celebrated a neighbor's new citizenship with fun and laughter.
