    I have always had a great dining experience at Legal Seafood. Their GF rolls are fantastic! The servers are knowledge about the GF choices on the menu and the manager brings the GF meal separately. They now have the GF items identified on the regular menu, so no need to ask for a separate menu anymore.

    I always feel safe here. GF dinner rolls are too delicious, though. Nice to eat chowder and calamari. GF dishes are always delivered by the manager, too. They do it right!

    one of the best chain gf places. a manager reviews every gf order. the gf options are actually broader than the gf menu suggests: the can make gf fries (pan fried), they can gf bread and fry any fish as well as make gf fried fish bites for kids. they have fresh baked gf dinner rolls and even gf croutons for salads. only caveat is the fried fish all contain dairy due to the breading process.

    Loved it!!!!! The staff were so helpful and is the server didn't know an answer to a GF question they would consult with the chef. They had delicious GF rolls so I wasn't just sitting there watching everyone eat their delicious bread. A lot of options and the food was excellent!!!

    Amazing! Tons of gf fried fish, gf dinner rolls (which they warm up for you), and a gf dessert option. They assured me everything was completely gf when they brought it out so I knew they were paying attention when I told them about the allergy. Everything was delicious! Felt great afterword too.

    Good food and excellent gf bread for the table. I had the surf and turf which was good but somewhat plain. The surf was shrimps and scallops which were very high quality but didn't have a sauce... so again it was very plain. maybe the sauces had gluten in them and that's why? Otherwise good place that was very considerate of gluten free food which I appreciate greatly.

    Hands down the best gluten free menu ever. The staff is so knowledgable. They have switched to all gluten free fryers except for 1 for a specialty item. I travel almost every week and if I could et at legal every week I would never get glutened! Food is delicious!

    BEST PLACE EVER!!! It's expensive but so worth it! I had French fries, onion rings, and fried fish for the first time since my diagnosis 3 years ago. I literally almost cried eating because I was so happy. Their rolls are incredible. I made the server check 3 times that they were the gluten-free ones and actually had a manager come over and assure me. Never had such good gluten-free bread in my life!

Gf dinner rolls too!!!!!!! I almost cried. So good! No stomachs problems or rashes. The staff was super nice and knowledgeable too! I will for sure be going back whenever I'm near one again! Thanks Legal Seafood!

    My experience here was phenomenal! GF dinner rolls to start (also dairy-free) courtesy of 'Something Sweet without Wheat' bakery in Woburn (an awesome bakery if you haven't checked it out!) I love that Legal branches out in the community to bring in fresh GF products versus frozen breads! Staff is knowledgable and overall would recommend!

    This restaurant understands Celiac. There are many GF options and they even had GF rolls. They have fries that they make in a separate pan. Jeff, our waiter, was well educated on proper GF preparation and was very happy to accommodate us! It was a pleasure to dine here. Food was absolutely delicious!

    This restaurant is amazing! I went with a group of friends and we got a table on the rooftop. I told the manager that I have celiac and everything I was served was handled in such a special way. Its all a raw bar on the rooftop, but the sushi was amazing. They did bring one dish for our group to share that wasn't gluten free and were very clear to warn me about it, but also brought me a small plate of my own food so I could eat with my friends. Service like that is rare. I would definitely eat there again!

    The BEST gluten free meal I have ever had! They can modify most of their dishes to be GF. They use chick pea breading to make any of the fried or breaded items. They have dedicated fryers for GF meals. I had the buffalo shrimp appetizer. Absolutely delicious! For dinner I had breaded sea scallops and French fries. Also very delicious. The scallops were so tender and the breading very light. They also have the most delicious, soft, GF rolls they buy from a local bakery. My husband who is not GF liked my rolls better than the regular rolls. If you're celiac and in Boston DO NOT miss this restaurant!

    Yep, made the mistake of coming here with my boss thinking it was just like all the other Legal Seafood restaurants. If you are used to Legal's Celiac friendly service in their regular restaurants, then do not come here. I wish they had just posted something on the door to alert people with Celiac and direct us to go elsewhere. Not a good experience at all.

    While they were very accommodating of both our dairy and gluten intolerances, the food was overpriced for what we got and the taste was average. It was really great to have fried calamari and fried shrimp since I never get those, but the taste was pretty dry. They also did not mention the dinner rolls-- that would have really made my hubby happy to have. All in all, safe eating but I won't be returning.

    We enjoyed several appetizers, freshly baked gf dinner rolls, a delicious meal, and even dessert. The rolls and desserts weren't listed on their celiac menu, so I'm glad our server mentioned them.... can't remember the last time I got dinner rolls out! The food was delicious and service was great. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
