Legal C Bar - Lynnfield Ratings and Reviews
This is a preferred restaurant of ours that we visit frequently. They usually have the best oysters around including the top Boston restaurants. This past visit they were extremely disappointing and did not taste right. We should have sent them back. Luckily the fried clams were very good as was the tuna sashimi and the firecracker sushi. The mahi-mahi tacos were also not up to par this time either.
Came for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend. The Thai wings we got for an app we're absolutely delicious. I got a grilled scallop dinner which was really good and came with a really good size portion. My boyfriend didn't care for his patty melt but it was removed from the bill. Our waitesss was great but I did not get her name
We made a reservation and we were seated within 5 mins of the reservation time. I thought the food was excellent and the service was very good. Our server explained all of the meals and was very helpful with the selections of sides and toppings.
I would definitely go there again. The food was a little pricey, but I think the quality was worth it. Pomegranate and Espresso Martinis were good hits for the night.
Went here for Valentines Day. I made reservations two weeks in advance but still got stuck in the overflow make shift dining room on the heated porch. Food was good but some items on menu not available like the halibut which is what everyone in my party wanted.
Really need to get new menu items.
Food was ok. We frequently visit and enjoy but tonight was odd. The waitress wasn't very responsive and then this strange thing happened where they suddenly couldn't accept gift cards because the Internet was down. My wife and I had to come up with ideas for the manager to figure out a way to do it. Eventually, the manager accepted our original idea of leaving the gift card with them for them to charge tomorrow. Strange behavior.
We love this restaurant! Food is delicious and always perfect and how you ordered it. And the service is outstanding. I have to give a special mention to Ryan! He is fantastic. Always professional, knowledgeable of the menu and always helps you make the make perfect choice from app, dinner and drinks.
The food and service were perfect. We had a reservation and the table was ready on time despite it being a busy Saturday night. The only problem we encountered was that a large group that was at the bar kept backing up into our table area. The staff got them to keep their distance once I pointed out the issue but it was not long before they started drifting back.
We love coming here and are so happy it's here in our hometown! Katie M is our favorite waitress and she's seriously the best you have there! We love going to eat at the C bar and even more when Katie is working. Great eats at Legals - this continues to be our go to!
After a rocky start, we had a great dinner. We made a 6:45 reservation but weren't seated until about 7:20. They ran out of pagers so they texted when your table was ready. It was so noisy that I didn't hear the text so when I saw it less than 5 minutes later at about 7, I think they had given away our table. We were standing right next to the hostess so we were a little perplexed/annoyed. Once we sat, our waiter was over immediately taking drink orders. The wait service was great and the food was good as well.
A good local restaurant - good food and the service is generally great. The only issue we have had twice now is that it takes a long time for the server to pick up and return the check/credit card. The first time it took over 10 minutes and this past weekend, it took over 15.
Our party of 4 were at Legal C Bar for a birthday celebration; we had a 6:15 pm reservation, arrived about 15 min early but were thinking we would have a long wait since the restaurant was packed for an early Saturday night! We were barely able to order a drink at the bar when our buzzer went off and we were seated. As usual, the menu options were extensive (and a little overwhelming!!) but we had great recommendations from our server. Oysters on the half-shell, shrimp tacos and bang-bang cauliflower were delicious and just the right amount. From the scallops to the grilled seafood salad to the dover sole, the entrees did not disappoint - our server even accommodated one diner's request to have the tuna sashimi appetizer turn into an entree-sized dish which was outstanding! We had just the right amount of attention, and our server did not even flinch when we were surprised by a 5th person who joined us for an after-dinner drink - just scooted over another chair and took his order. As always, our go-to choice for a great dining experience!
Legals is always dependable for good food. I highly recommend the lobster avocado bacon wrap. It was delicious. I thought the lobster might not stand out next to the bacon but it certainly did. We also had the lobster mac and cheese, cod and seafood paella. Eveything was delicious.
My husband and I have enjoyed eating at legal C, Lynnfield since they opened. Unfortunately since this summer our experience has not always been the best. This weekend our experience to date has been the worst. We made reservations via OpenTable, arrived a little bit early checked in and went to the bar for some drinks. They did not call us until a half hour after our reservation time. Our waitress was nice enough not overly friendly. We ordered appetizers and dinner, appetizers came out fairly quickly. And then our waitress disappeared never came back to clean up the appetizers never came back to ask us if we wanted drinks while waiting for dinner. When dinner finally came most of the sides were wrong and one meal was completely wrong. she went back to correct the order no apologies still never cleaned our appetizer dishes. Needed to let her know we wanted to order more drinks. After that, was the last time we saw our waitress was when she left us the bill. Ended up flagging down another waitress so that we could pay and leave. We ended up having dessert at another restaurant at Market Street and had a great night after that. Sorry to say we will no longer be going to legal C Market Street.
Dinner with friends on Saturday evening. We arrived at 7 PM with a reservation and were seated immediately. Restaurant was packed. Service was excellent. We ordered fried clams and filet of sole and they were out of both!!! Everyone enjoyed their dinner except me. I ordered crab cake and grilled shrimp and my meal was barely warm when served. Everyone else's was fine so I didn't send mine back. I will be back again and hope for a hot meal!!!
Busy Friday night - we had a reservation but still wound up waiting around for a table. The food was good but slightly less special than what we would have had at Legal Seafood, which always nails the food. My "Old Fashioned Old Fashioned" tasted good but seemed very watery for an $11 cocktail... that was a disappointment.
I've been here many times and always enjoyed the food. Their sangria is amazing and the freshness of the fish can't be beat. I had crabmeat and avocado, outstanding. My lunch partner had the salmon and said it was great.
The only reason it didn't get 5 was because it was an extremely busy day and we had a little bit of trouble getting service. The couple around us and the family on our other side, both of whom arrived after us, were serviced ahead of two women! The couple was offered a free dessert, we were not!
We go to Legal C Bar quite often and this was the only time we were disappointed. The food was good but not as good as usual. My son had the cod which he really liked but my green dragon roll wasn't as good as in the past. It didn't seem quite up to Legal standards. We ordered two appetizers that were never delivered and since we didn't see our server again until well after receiving our entrees, we didn't have a chance to tell him. We had enough food so it wasn't a big deal. I just missed having my bang bang cauliflower which I order every time. We'll go back again because we are usually quite happy.
Our kitchen was being remodeled over Christmas, so we booked this last-minute. It ended up being a wonderful experience with great service and friendly staff. We have a 4yo and a 1.5yo and they were very understanding/accommodating. We really appreciate them making our Christmas dinner comfortable... and the food was excellent!
Restaurant was crowded when we arrived, but because we had a reservation we were seated promptly. Waitress was very pleasant, took our drink order and when she arrived with the drinks, she took our order. And that was the last time we saw her. People from the kitchen delivered our soup/salad, which were wonderful. And our food. Another waiter brought our bread, when we asked. Another waiter got us additional drinks and cleared our dishes and brought coffee. Asked him where our waitress went, and he said it was the end of her shift! Strange, but all in all, the food was wonderful and the other waiters provided very good service. We would definitely return...food was worth it!
It was Christmas Day so it could have gone either way. Our waiter was nice. The food and drinks were timed well. They only complaint was never received the extra sauce requested. It was asked of the person who delivered food (maybe a manager) not the waiter. Also the special was a little overpriced for the amount of food (
