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.

Food is very good, however, the prices are much to high for our blood. Golly, a glass of wine is $10.00 - that surely killed our thoughts of coming here again. We ate at the bar and our lunch was over $40.00 - the tip.

For years we have gone to Legals. No, for our whole lives we have gone to Legals. Food is excellent but recent price increases is putting it out of reach for a retired couple who eats out three times a week.

My wife and I have been to Legal many times and always have had a great dining experience. I feel very assured that the food is always fresh and well prepared. On my recent visit this week with my grandson, I was particularly impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of our young waiter in his early 20s. He was particularly... More

For $17 I received a piece of swordfish maybe 3 oz. on a good day. On a bed of a smattering of arugula with about 3 cherry tomatoes and maybe 10 kernels of roasted corn. Hardly a meal. The atmosphere was nice, the waiter good but the meal was so skimpy. I was a guest of a friend but if... More

Wonderful as always! The freshest food, great service, not loud at all. I had my team with me and our guest from Mexico City enjoyed his tuna steak very much. My swordfish steak was just perfect. As always, Legal is the best and the food is worth the price you pay. Yes, and it is plenty of free parking.

Service is pretty good, depending on what kind of food you're ordering, sometimes good and sometimes average. We usually bring friends from out of town and experience the New England clam chowdah. It's an okay restaurant once in a while.

I have been visiting Legal Seafoods already for over 24 years but this is my first review on Trip advisor for this restaurant since it has been a while since I visited last time. This site at Framingham was a good experience. I think the major difference with the past is that you have to choose well nowadays otherwise you... More

Although Legal Sea Foods came highly recommended, I found that the food was mediocre at best, with rubbery shrimp amid an insipid casserole. The wait staff and manager tried to accommodate me, but there was no point. I shall not return.
