Description: Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating.

“Wicked loud noise detracts from excellent food and service”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Food and service are exceptional, as expected in Legal Seafood restaurants. But the interior architects of the first floor dining room never thought of noise. On top of the diners' shouting to be heard and the open kitchen noise, the management had background "music" going at full blast.. Quiet relaxed onservation was impossible. Too bad, since the place is brand new, and has fantastic views.

“An average quality restaurant”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This is part of the famed Boston Legal Sea food place. It was O.K., but not more than that, and somewhat overpriced. It is one of those many restaurants that you leave without any special feeling, - not that they've made you angry and you regret going there, but not that you want to go there again and recommend it to your friends.

“ooo that's why it is called Test Kitchen”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

The food and the drinks are just below average, and the atmosphere is boring. It looks like a lounge but without the lounge vibe.

“Go to the Legal Harborside Spots”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

This place is too cramped. For a better Legal experience, go to the new Legal a block away at the Harborside. The first floor is typical Legal chow... and the 2nd floor is more like fine dining. Both much better (2nd floor is more expensive).
