This is not your ordinary chain. While it is a little over crowded and noisy, the food is excellent. The almond crusted salmon delightful. The mussels presented in a delectable sauce. This is a winner.

We had legal sea foods as one of the restaurants I always like to return, however the quality of the food today wasn't the best. As starters we ordered the Clam Chowder, fried Calamari, which were okey and a variety of Oysters that were fresh...More

Food and service, just the best. I had the medium size lobster - 2lbs plus. Alexa, the server, recommended the upgrade from 1.25 lbs and it was well worth it. Food and service was terrific .Will be returning as soon as possible

Legal Seafood Copley Place is casually elegant, with excellent service and outstanding fresh seafood. Each dish is beautifully plated. Smoked salmon is sliced thin, superbly flavored, and enough to share. We opted for seafood casserole and grilled halibut steak (a special). The kitchen was happy...More

I've been to a few Legal Seafoods (including another location in Boston), and they were far better than this experience. The seating was comfortable, the service was great, but the food was really lacking. Fish was utterly flavorless, veggies were mushy, and the carrot cake...More

We know shopping induces hunger - and Legal Sea Foods reels in those who want to splash down for a meal or grab-and-go. Our restaurant is located on the upper level of Copley Place, with direct indoor access to both the Westin and Marriott hotels as well as to the Prudential Center. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows overlook Boston's historic South End. Here the views and the seafood are second to none.
