I'm a generally a huge fan of Legals and have had many wonderful experiences here, apparently I was due for my not so great one. Favorite things about Legals: accommodating for food allergies (I am allergic to dairy and peanuts) and the tuna steak. Tonights experience: I was with a party of 7, only three types of dishes were ordered (fried fisherman's platter, blue fish, and wood grilled assortment) I ordered the wood grilled assortment after hearing from the server as an answer to my brother next to me that it was salmon, tuna, and swordfish - my favorites. I ordered it with everything spice and no butter. Issues with the meal. It was coated in triple the amount of the everything spice than I would ever need, so much so that I couldn't distinguish fish underneath. The fish did not end up being what the server had said, when I asked they told me since I hadn't specified what fish I had wanted, which is what the other 2 at my table had done, the chef had decided to switch it up (I ended up with no tuna which is the reason I eat a Legals) and the fish was well done, I generally go with chef's choice to be honest but I was expecting a medium rare tuna. What I learned from my experience: confirm or specify your fish for the wood grilled assortment or you may end up with an unexpected fish or not the fish you want, ask how much sauce or spices is going to be put on your fish so you don't end up with a spice dominating your multi-fish experience, and specify how you want your fish cooked. Most important, remember to say all of the above even when your server forgets to ask you. My sides and my drink were fabulous. The rest of the table had lovely meals and a good experience was had over all.

The tuna sashimi was terrible. Portions of soup were miniscule and the service was awful.

I had been to Legal Seafoods before but not for years. I didn't expect too much, it being a chain and all, but was pleasantly surprised. The lunch menu portions were actually too large for any of us to finish. I didn't feel like a sloth after eating one of the "healthy" options on the menu. It actually seemed healthy, with steamed shrimp, brown rice and vegetables. And while the place was very crowded with the lunch scene, our waiter was extremely attentive and didn't go too long without stopping by our table to check on us. I'd go back for lunch anytime.

The service can be very slow and the food is fair. It doesn't really stand up to the many surrounding local seafood eateries.

I am writing two reviews because I have two very different opinions about two different aspects of my recent experience with Legal in Chestnut Hill. I hosted a company dinner there last night. This four star review is based primarily on the service we received there at the event. I arrived early, thankfully, to make sure everything was all set. The room was not set up as I'd wanted. The waiters were extremely accommodating, took everything off the tables and moved them around, then set the tables up to accommodate our group more appropriately. The service from that point on was great. The food was great.. although, the Treasures of Reef appetizer at $120 was not nearly as plentiful as I'd have expected and the presentation left a lot to be desired. We've previously held these dinners at the Capital Grille and for $99 they do an overflowing tower of cold seafood (lobster tails, shrimp, oysters, etc).. much nicer presentation and much more generous amounts of food. So, that was a bit disappointing. But overall the food was great, the service was great. The low points were the room itself (looks rather tired and old), there is a big flat screen tv but it doesn't get cable (our event was held on the night of Bruins game 7 vs. the Canadiens, so we had a lot of disappointed guests!). The only complaint I have about the service was that we had a select/limited menu and they just brought everything out without asking anyone if they needed a vegetarian alternative, which, some of our group did. If I hadn't overheard and stepped in, the vegetarians would have missed out on a couple of courses. I feel that the waiters should make it known, before they start placing plates or bowls down in front of people, that there is another option if anyone needs it. Other than that - great night, due mostly to the great food, the great staff, and the very helpful and accommodating manager.
