Myself and several of my friends went to the Legal Sea Food on Park Plaza. We were on a trip to Boston from Buffalo, and I suggested we eat at one of Legal's locations because of previous recommendations from family and because of my desire for local seafood. It was also very close to our hotel. I was not disappointed.
The place looked nice inside, somewhat more upscale than I had expected. Despite our large group, we were seated on a Friday night between 7 and 8 within 20 minutes.
Our waiter, Justin D., was very knowledgeable about both the drink and food menu, and gave a few of my friends some helpful recommendations and opinions upon ordering. He was very personable and friendly, and did a fantastic job throughout our stay despite the fact that we were somewhat underdressed, perhaps a bit loud, and that we stuck around much longer than we should have.
I had a Cisco Whale's Tale to drink, a cup of New England clam chowder to start, and fried New England clams for dinner. My friends had various things from chowder to bisque, fish and shellfish, and plenty of wine (most of which came as recommendations from our waiter). My friends seemed very satisfied (a few of them who were not accustomed to seafood spoke highly of what they tried), and frankly I was in heaven. It has been four days since we ate there and I'm already pining to go back and have more. Superb food, a decent selection of beer, and a very large selection of wine that varies in price.
Some of my party ordered dessert and appeared to enjoy it. I have little to say as I didn't have anything after dinner.
We requested separate checks when we first sat down, but there was some unfortunate mix-ups in a couple of the checks. Some items were switched around and one or two drinks mysteriously appeared out of nowhere. Justin did his best to rectify the problem, and after a while everyone was paying for exactly what they ordered, I believe.
I'd recommend this Legal location to anyone who finds themselves in downtown Boston who appreciates or would like to try good seafood, or for anyone who wants some good wine from a wide selection in a nice-looking restaurant and bar. It is very conveniently placed near several hotels.
