Description: 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.

Every time I come to Boston I have to go to a Legal Seafood. This one didn't disappoint. If you are in Boston and you like seafood, look no further! Food and service outstanding.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The food is very mediocre. My husband's fish and chips tasted a bit off, and my scallops were mushy. My daughter's vegetarian dish, while cleverly presented, was overly greasy.

“Yum!!!”

This was our best meal during our three day trip to Boston! Sole with capers, rice and sautéed spinach was fabulous. Good service and atmosphere, too!
