We had raw oysters on half shell, calamari, Maryland crab soup, and the crab combination entree. Everything was top notch. The restaurant is not large so reservations are needed. We lucked out by arriving really early (before 6) , thus didn’t need to wait to be seated. The prices are not cheap but definitely worth every penny.

We always like to stop at a Legal Seafood when we are traveling near one. As usual, we got a wonderful seafood meal. We shared the crab cake appetizer and loved it. My wife ordered her favorite, the Everything Tuna and it met her expectations. I had the 1 1/4 lobster and it was good, but not as good as ones I have eaten in Maine. The service was perfect! And validated parking at a nearby garage was great.

We always stop in at Legal Sea Foods when we are in DC. They need a larger restaurant though. There is usually a long line/wait to be seated. The layout of the restaurant is not great, but even remodeling to improve the layout wouldn't be adaquate. They need to increase the size of the restaurant.

Good service, excellent dishes, and big servings. Glad to see that the quality of food is consistent with their branches in Boston and Cambridge.

Our family enjoyed all our food, but the server was the impressive part. Definitely on the pricey side, but that works for a once in a while kind of choice.
