Legal Sea Foods, not only the Framingham restaurant, but Hill Chestnut, Dedham and Copley locations are all marvelous choices. The sea food and side dishes are all fresh and delicious, the best I've ever had, anywhere! Some favorites are: artic char, lobster roll, steamed lobster, shrimp cocktail, steamed mussels, shrimp with garlic and mushrooms. As for side dishes, all the... More

We had article excellent char and salmon. Service was very good. Room is large and open with tables close together. Noise level was a bit high.

I've been to this restaurant many times and mostly, the food has been good as evidenced by the fact that it is often crowded. Occasionally there is an off night for the chef, but generally one can count on standard fare, decent seafood. It's not gourmet, but good, basic seafood. Today I was there again and my arctic char was... More

Legal Seafood is a top notch place to eat. The extensive menu and the preparation of the meals has consistently been good. We had drinks, shared an appetizer, dinner and desserts and we were all pleased with our meals. We have eaten at this location a number of times over the years. The only part that is hard to swallow... More

The Berkowitz's are awesome at getting things right. My last dinner in the Framingham location was spectacular and very enjoyable due to a wonderful waitress and restaurant manager. Went with our grandchildren for lobster and it was a fun evening watching them enjoy lobster that is removed from the shell and put back in so everyone enjoys their meal. It... More

When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted with happy welcomes and led to our table. Our waiter, Sergey, greeted us asked about any special needs, my daughter has gluten issues and my granddaughter has some nut issues. The waiter got us a gluten free menu which was expansive and the children's menu was great. The gluten meal and even... More

Went for lunch yesterday, I ordered baked lobster with scallops and shrimp. They asked me if I wanted the lobster cracked open before it was brought out, I said yes. When they brought it, the presentation seemed nice, with the lobster head on one side of the plate, and a smaller dish with what seemed the rest of the lobster,... More

Sat at the bar. Had no problem with drinks, but ordering food took forever. Once I ordered dinner, it took at least 20 minutes. BAD!!!

We enjoyed a delicious lobster bisque, with plenty of lobster in it, clam chowder, crab cakes, lobster, and salmon. Excellent, professional wait staff gave good wine recommendations. I don't recommend the mousse--it's somewhat grainy (like ricotta cheese) and not sweet. Everything else was to our satisfaction. Crowded, but not terribly noisy. We were able to have a conversation.
