Our server was great. The hostess/ check in process was PAINFUL. Please amend this.
Also was not made aware of the EXTREMELY limited menu. 1 vegetarian option...
Great lunch as always. Server was very nice and accommodating. Only surprise is why are the salt n pepper shakes on the table when everything is suppose to be off the table during COVID.
Just wonderful to return to Legals for their food and ambiance. Even though it’s a limited menu at this time, the chowdah and lobstah were primo!
Always a great time and so happy they have reopened.
Limited menu. Nothing without seafood. Went with a friend who likes seafood. Usually I can something else. No options. Service was slow. Nice view and great drinks. Would not recommend right now unless you love limited seafood options
Nice job Legal. You were our first in restaurant dining experience since the pandemic. We picked a late lunch when it was very quiet and you did an excellent job. Thank you.
Quality of food needs improvement. Service is great.
Good central location to Boston
Friendly waitress! Terrific service! Excellent food!
Legal always has good food, but it is a bit pricey. They were offering a significantly reduced menu when we went, but I think they were going to be building it out in early July. Overall, we were very happy with our meal.
Not ready for Co-vid. Very limited menu, poor system. Utensils thrown at you. Did not seem to have thought through the needs of this co-vid world.
Too bad, maybe they will get better in time
Server very helpful with wine we wanted.
We went the second day that the restaurant could have indoor dining. The food as always was very good; disappointed that they ran out of more than a few items on their limited menu.
Our waitress was excellent; came to us when we need something and brought drinks and food as soon as they were ready.
I like the atmosphere at this Legal's Seafood; it's far better than the Legal C in Legacy Place.
Even though we are still dining cautiously with tables moved or occupied only every 6ft, we had a very enjoyable dinner. The menu is quite limited compared to pre-pandemic. But the offerings were good. Unfortunately french fries and cold slaw are the only sides offered, but you eat what you want and not the rest. The service was good and we felt safe the entire time we were at the restaurant. Please use a reservation so that you can eat when you want without having to wait in a line.
Great lunch and happy to be there.Food was fresh and delicious.Waitress was friendly and helpful.
Food was usual high quality. Didn’t have the best server this time.
The often eat at the Logan airport Legals. This was a great test to have the full menu, great service and an amazing view. We will plan to eat at the chestnut Hill location again!
We had the nicest server, she was so patient with us all! Our food was delicious- everyone was happy. And they are always so accommodating to my wanting vegetables, in place of the rice or potato.
Thank you for another great meal and relaxing time!!
Great seafood in a wonderful suburban location. I love the selection of oysters. Had the rainbow trout which was bland, but a little salt did the trick. Spouse had the tuna steak and he really like that.
love this restaurant, staff is very nice and we come here often
One of the worst meals out that I can remember. Scallops were overcooked, as were the vegetables. Too much grease on everything, even on the grilled food.
We were on vacation and we’re looking for a nice place to eat. The food was outstanding the bar was excellent and the service was excellent ! could not of been better
Menu hasn't changed for a long time but the recipes seem to have been changed for the worse. The service was terribly slow, 10-12 minutes to be offered water/rolls and another 10 minutes to receive. Kids meals were overtaken by the spicy breading used (not good for kids). French fries taste like cardboard! What happened to the quality?
Waiter excellent. Food always excellent.
Noise level challenging.
Enjoyed the food service and ambience
Delicious food, excellent service, and comfy booth seating that was great for conversation.
Food over all this time was much better than the last time we were here.we started with the lobster bisque and the Rhode island style calamari. Both were very good. They seem to be changing some of the ingredients a little. The bisque wild quite good did have more flavor reminiscent of a canned bisque. Being in the food industry it's pretty easy to tell when something's no longer made from scratch! There was enough Sherry and also added lobster, but the lobster flavor was not really that evident I think they need to use a better stock rather than buying it elsewhere. The calamari was good. Fresh & crispy just enough.they seem to be using less batter which is a good thing because that tended to get quite soggy and greasy. For our mains we had Gray sole, and Anne's baked cod which was very good. Portions were very decently sized and there just wasn't quite enough room for dessert! Price came out to about $90 which was about right. Overall a very decent meal.
The shrimp taco was served on a grilled, hard tortilla. The texture is unpleasant. I didn't send it back because the portion was large enough for me to just eat around it. Rethink that taco.
I had the cod, squash and spinach and it was outstanding. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Our waitress was attentive and helpful with describing menu.
Lobster dinner 2 for $29 special for leap day great deal but though slaw was a bit oniony and corn over cooked but the place was packed and line at the door
Prefer lobster roll but lobsters were delicious !
Nine of us had a terrific time. Many of us took advantage of the double lobster special and were not disappointed. One member of our party is a vegetarian and needs to be on a gluten-free diet so had a nice salad and veggie sides. Another member of our party does not eat fish so had chicken and roasted vegetables. Those who drank enjoyed our drinks as well. Our server was friendly and very efficient.
The lobster night should become an annual event rather than every four years.
We would like to see the original smoke salmon app return to the menu as not all of us want the avocado.
Thank you for placing us in the back room - it is much quieter and easier to have a conversation.
We came for the extra day/extra lobster special. The advertisement stated a choice of two sides. We were informed by our server that there was no choice—cole slaw and corn on the cob only. Disappointed, we paid extra for fries and onion strings, both of which were lukewarm. The calamari and cauliflower apps were tasty.
Our server was not having a cheery day. He asked if he could bring anything else and then seemed annoyed when we said yes —lemon and mayo. And extra napkins! Nothing difficult or untoward.
Cocktails were good—especially the Tito’s cranberry burst!
We did not stay for coffee and dessert, preferring a more relaxed atmosphere.
Amazing lobster and chowder ... enjoyed the wine flight too!
Our reservation was on 2/29 where we took advantage of the special--2 lobsters for $29.00. As one can imagine, it was pretty crazy! We enjoyed the lobsters and are grateful for the special offer. Legal is consistently good in its offerings.
You excellent deal. 2 lobsters for$29. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the evening. Service a little rocky. Not enough attention when needed but otherwise ok
It was a nice expensive
I love Legal Sea Foods!
It was twin lobster leap year day and fabulous. Service was fabulous. Food delish. Best cocktails.
The bartenders in Chestnut Hill are the best !
We had a great table and came for the lobster specials. All the food served was Luke warm. My friends lobster did not look like the other 3 at the table but the waitress argued with us and didn’t do anything. We had 4 guest and got two butters we had to ask for more it took a while. Fries and rice were on the house but the rice was as old as the day is long and cold. It was mediocre at best.
