Description: Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating.

“Eh, it was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We should have been tipped off that it wasn't anything too special when we walked in at 1pm and got seated right away. The food was okay, service was fine, nice people working there, but it certainly wasn't anything special.

“Very good”

Great lobster with a fair price.
Make reservations because I had to wait 30 minutes for a table on Monday.

“At the Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Jammed, but fun. We hit the front door at prime time but made our way to the bar where we had dinner. Nice.

“Great Spot - food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Group of 5 arrived without reservation. Staff accommodated us and really provided exceptional service throughout evening. Their seafood was excellent. Here are some of the items that were at our table that were great: steamed lobster, oysters on half shell, crab cakes, spicy lobster dish (forget name) and scallops. Good wine and beer options. Definitely worth a try.

“Legal Test Kitchen.. good results!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Generally when you don't find a place in Legal Sea Foods (Harborside) you book LTK. Although the harborside wins in locale, the LTK is quite a place in itself. In the starters the Mussel was amazing, and in the mains Lobster definitely is great. My partner tried fish and chips, and was not very happy with it. The place becomes quite crowded and although not as busy as harborside even here booking early is a good idea!
One more thing the service was excellent!
Definitely a good place to eat. Of course assuming you like or at least don't mind trying sea food!
