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.

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
