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

The Strawberry Sangria is extremely refreshing and tastes fantastic! I had a cup of the New England Clam Chowder (first time I have had Clam Chowder), it was so yummy. Then the Portuguese Fisherman's Stew was so flavourful, I will definitely go back again

Almost missed the restaurant as we thought our reservation was in the Prudential Center but went to the second floor in Copley Plaza after checking our reservation. Turns out the other Legal Seafoods closed 1-2 years ago. Service (Emily?) was very good. Main fish entrees...More

Reliably the best seafood! We always take a crowd and all are pleased. The location in Copley Center is perfect. The Fisherman's Sampler platter is generous and easily shared. Everyone loved their dinners. The staff is delightful and work hard to make sure you enjoy...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.
