The wine was good, the staff agreeable, the food very ordinary. We had choice between a crab cake that was good but not a Wooahoo! and an overcooked filet mignon (two of my neighbors' had them). For what I have seen of the rest of...More

The menu was large, but just nothing that I would crave and feel like I have to go back. I would recommend doing some of the smaller independent restaurants instead.

The restaurant was just around the block from the Boston Plaza. Our waitress was fabulous and took excellent care of us. While this is a chain restaurant, it was nice and provided lots of options for things to eat. Can't miss with Legal Sea Foods.

Great service and good food. Not the most cosy place. But all adequate. Reasonably priced. The lady serving us was a charm and giving us excellent advice and recommendations on food as well as wine.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I had steamed clams and a salad with gluten free bread. There are other options, but I don't eat crab, lobster, shrimp, or steak.

Calling all gormands and oenophiles! This Legal Sea Foods' location in Boston's Theater District, surrounded by hotels and nearby Newbury Street, Copley Square and Boston Common, offers an expanded wine menu - 40 pages in all. Just inside you'll see a two-story cascading fountain, the center-piece of the restaurant. Splash down in our dining room or make waves in our comfortable lounge three fathoms below. Our award-winning Wine Cellar, which holds over 10,000 bottles and 800 different labels, is also downstairs. Call ahead and ask our wine steward for a tour. Those who like to 'wine and dine' are in luck because our working Cellar doubles as private dining space for social and corporate functions.
