    You WILL NOT get a deal at restaurant week any year (same price if you order off the menu), it's the same every year. The food is really good. The mussels selection is good and they are all great.

    AWESOME restaurant for gluten sensitive people! Bread and a whole menu! Fried fish was great! It had been years since I had gotten to eat fried calamari--this was just as good as I remember!

    Make reservations on the weekends and weekdays for dinner. Located across from the verizon center so anytime something is going on they will be booked and a reservation will be gold! i.e.: NBA NHL

    The Anna's Boston Baked Schrod was delicious. Pro tip: swap one of your sides for a salad (that will come out before) as there's only a slight up-charge for doing so.

    Go somewhere else. The food is mediocre and priced high. No "sampler" type items on the menu so you have to order an appetizer, soup, salad and entree if you'd like more than one type of seafood.

    The wait says was very friendly. The food was disappointing. The steak tasted metallic and and bitter, the shrimp was way overcooked and the scallops and mashed potatoes has no flavor. Yummy fries.

    GO FOR THE CRAB CAKES! I'm really fussy, they normally taste like bad salmon patties. The waitress talked me into them and they are amazing, best I have ever tasted!

    Avoid! This place is a mismanaged trainwreck. 35 minutes to get a table, 45 minutes after that - still no food. As a topper, the people standing in the bar started sitting at our table uninvited.

    Definitely go to this Legal Seafoods where you will see Tenille, former contestant on Hell's Kitchen. Taste her sweet potato pie. It's out of this world!

    Yellow curry mahi mahi was GREAT! Service was fast and friendly. Ask for a table, we were crammed in next to the most irritating young woman.

    Great place for gluten-free dining, they even have GF bread rolls! Really smart place that cares about health and safety--I'm a huge fan.

    Unbelievable. LS just discontinued ALL sliders. The salmon and tuna were best, and they all were only available at happy hour.

    The arctic char special with mozzarella and tomato, while a an odd combination, is very very good. I also recommend the old fashioned.

    Spicy fish and chips is an excellent choice but substitute Cole Slaw for seaweed salad

    The salmon and tuna happy hour sliders are unbelievably seasoned. The tuna burger from the full menu is excellent also.

    Go to the Bar side and have lunch at the bar. Ask for the crab soup, presentation is impressive and taste is to die for.

    The Sriracha popcorn shrimp is literally kettle corn (popcorn) and pieces of fried shrimp with 2 dipping sauces.

    Rethink the bar policy of not taking to-go orders. You missed out on 2 sure drinks + tip I would have had while I waited. #fail

    Definitely try the tuna sashimi. To add a little kick ask for a side of graded (green paste) wasabi!

    Sit by the kitchen when Martin's on -- he runs a tight kitchen and the show is worth the price of admission itself.

    Overpriced food. Fish is not good despite being a seafood place. Bar is excellent. Happy hour drinks good.

    Not very good! They need to clear table before bringing entree. Food mediocre. New England clams, not even close! Don't waste your $.
