Gluten free fish and chips ! Yes it's true! I have missed this delicious treat! Tastes great with a gluten free beer too! Service was excellent
Great place! All flour used in the fryer is gluten free - so all fried food is safe! I had the fried fish and chips which came with onion straws and French fries. All delicious and no side effects! Also offer a few gluten free desserts.
Excellent! ! Very knowledgeable and caring staff. They have dedicated fryers so you can have fried fish here and fries but the onion straws are amazing! All of it was light and crispy. They also serve you gf bread rolls before your meal so you aren't left out watching non celiacs enjoy their bread. The portions are large too and the price is good. I would definitely go back and highly recommend to anyone needing a gf diet.
Lots of gluten-free options. There was a little miscommunication between my waiter and the chef, but the manager went out of his way to make it right for me. Gluten-free protocols are clearly in place. I visited in Nov. 2015. Read my full review over on the blog: http://www.eatingoutwithout.com/2015/11/legal-sea-foods-review.html
Delicious. The boys loved the gluten free rolls and it was a novelty to be able to eat the bread!
My son has celiac disease, we were extremely impressed with the staff's knowledge and handling of food. GF food was bought out separately by another waiter, each time it was placed in front of my son it was identified as gluten free. He was able to get gluten free dinner rolls, which were warm and delicious. Had option of anything fried since they use a gf breading and separate fryer. This is a rare treat for him. He ordered fired clams and enjoyed!
I can't say enough about this place! Gf rolls were amazing. Fish and chips were the best I have ever eaten. They even have onion rings. Waiter was excellent and very knowledgable.
Absolutely awesome! Just came back second day in a row, highly recommended!
The first time I've had fish n chips or onion rings since getting diagnosed years ago. So yummy! Staff are very knowledgable and like others who reviewed, the manager carried out my plate separately. The gluten free rolls were also delicious. Highly recommend :)
What a wonderful GF DF experience. My son had clams and shrimp and I had the platter where everything is fried in their dedicated fryers (fish, scallops, calamari, fries, etc.). What a treat! Eating fried food that is GF and DF in a restaurant is almost unheard of. They were very careful and really understood cross-contamination. Liked how they brought our plates out separate too. Delicious!!
How great is it to be able to eat gluten-free, fried food without cross-contamination? I went for my birthday and it couldn't have been better. I had coconut shrimp and fries. Heavenly! The gluten-free rolls were also great. Entire staff was knowledgeable, all the way up to the manager who brought us our food and checked with us after the meal.
Great menu, super friendly and accommodating, highly recommended. As a person with Celiac I felt safe dining here. They are really on top of everything. And the gluten free clam chowder is great.
Fantastic service, great atmosphere, and wonderful food! GF dinner rolls were the best I've had! Many menu choices, and they even had a dedicated gf fryer. The manager served each of my courses, confirming my allergens each time he put something down on the table. We will definitely be back!
Very celiac-friendly! Huge GF selection (marked on the menu) with GF rolls and even a dedicated GF fryer. We were very impressed!
Excellent waiters!! Very sensitive! Most of menu is marked gluten free and they brought me gluten free bread! They also have separate fryer! The food is wonderful and atmosphere is great!! A must go to if you are gluten free in DC!!
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.
My family was so excited to eat fried seafood out. They also served fresh from the oven gf dinner rolls that were a hit. I have additional food intolerances and they were accommodating of those as well. We tried many places in DC this week on vacation and this was the best place for me!
One of the best gf menus I have seen. Grilled seafood and lava cake dessert was great. Also, the wine ladder was fun for $10. My experience was consistent with other 5 star ratings .
they have a celiac menu listing all the g free options and wait staff were all very aware. I ordered the seafood platter that included calamari, whitefish, scallops and French fries. it was all deep fat fried and way over any person's recommended caloric intake for the day, but since I NEVER get the option for these things normally, I went for it. yum, yum, yum! it was so worth it. it comes with tartar sauce but I also asked for cocktail sauce to dip it in. good thing our vacation including lots of walking ;-) I disagree with the $$$ rating, it was very affordable, especially for the amount of food!
AMAZING! Best gluten free restaurant I have ever been too, they were very knowledgable. The sous chef brought me my food personally and said he took the extra precautions necessary and if I needed anything to ask for him personally. I was VERY impressed with their and their food! Highly recommended for a gluten free option!!
Great gf fried shrimp and gf bread, if you ask.
the best dining experience I have ever had...fried calamari amazing chocolate mousse and everything was all taken out by a manager! also gluten free rolls!
The GF menu was wonderful, many options for appetizers, sides and dinner. My wood grilled shrimp were good but if i based this review on my husbands GF fried clams would've earned it 5 stars! Wait staff was knowledgable, no bread and crazy on a Sunday night.... But I felt safe and that's all that matters!
Awesome! Great GF menu! Had GF dinner rolls and took extra nut/dairy allergies very seriously! Food was delicious.
Gluten free rolls are great!
Great experience. They've actually made their entire trying operation gluten free now to streamline their kitchen. So the menu of options is extensive including fries, fish and chips, etc. very knowledgeable and conscientious staff.
Excellent service. Very careful with allergies when preparing your order. Ellery J. Is very friendly and checks on you often.
This place is fantastic! Everything fried is gluten free and they use canola oil (no soy!!!)!!! This was the first time my son was able to order French fries or onion rings at a restaurant! The gluten free dinner rolls are from "somethingsweetwithoutwheat.com" and they were fabulous! This place took note of all of our many, many allergies, and cooked our food to order. We will be returning!
The staff was extremely knowledgable. The menu indicated what could be made gluten free which was the majority of the menu. We had the crab cakes, risotto cakes, and French fries.
Great selection and great food.
Food was incredible and I made sure to specify that I had celiac disease. The manager (rather than my server) brought my food out just to acknowledge that it was GF, which was very nice. The GF rolls (free of charge) were warm and absolutely delicious! I got the fish and chips and my meal was huge and just wonderful. Will be coming back next time I'm in Boston.
Serve delicious GF rolls from Rosie's bakery. Manager delivered my food.
Gf? No problem! They really have it figured out. Gf rolls to start, gf clam chowder (ok- not quite as good as the regular I remember from years past), many gf entrees, including fried items that I'm told are all gf and fried in a dedicated fryer. Didn't try the fried food, but the baked scrod was moist and delicious. Felt very well cared for and did not have any problems later. Isn't that what we all want? To feel safe and enjoy a meal with friends/family. This was even better- it was really delicious, too!!
The service was acceptable, despite the waitress forgetting to bring out my fries then blaming it on the other server. But, the gluten free bun for my sandwich smelled funny and had a strange taste. Initially, I thought it was the broccoli I ordered, however, after finishing it, the smell continued. I checked the bread to see if it was molded, but it looked fine. The smell made me nauseated! I'm going to stick to the seafood from now on!
I have reviewed them in the past after a major disappointment. Yesterday's visit was phenomenal though. The GF rolls were warm and soft, almost like my husband's non GF rolls. The GF fried calamari was delicious with consistent breading and chewy squid. The fried Fisherman's Platter was delicious and the clams were tender and yummy. The waitress really seemed to understand my needs and the manager brought out my meals. We went back hesitantly after a bad experience there this past spring, but now this restaurant is back on the top of my list!
Great service!! The chef came out and assured us they took every precaution they could! The fryer does not have gluten items Fried in it so you can have the French fries or the onion strings! I had the grilled shrimp, French fries and polenta no problems! (And some of my husbands onion strings - they made his meal gf too so that I could have some of his!)
This is a dream for a celiac. 100% dedicated gluten free fryers, manager oversees preparation and delivers gluten free food in different colored plates. Huge selection of gluten free items and the kitchen is committed to keeping everything separate and safe. Best place in Boston for a Celiac go dine. And delicious to boot!!
I don't usually even like seafood, but I find that anything I have ordered is quite good at Legal Seafood. They have a dedicated gf fryer, and they take you seriously when you say you're celiac. I didn't get poisoned when I ate there, and I tend to react to very small amounts. You can eat here with confidence.
Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25).
I was informed by the chef that the Portuguese Seafood Stew is not gluten free and that it's a "typo" on the menu. It's not specific to this restaurant it's also listed as gluten free on their website. None of their wait staff was aware that it wasn't gluten free and at least one of their other chefs was unaware. The issue is their stock is not gluten free and neither is the chourico they use. They have no intention of changing their menu (or the ingredients they use) and they haven't even bothered informing their staff, it makes me wonder what exactly is safe to eat from their gluten free option. I would be very cautious eating here if you have CD or a gluten allergy.
