Absolutely amazing with incredible service. Very celiac safe, and probably the best gluten free experience at a restaurant that I've ever had. The food is delicious, especially the free gluten free rolls. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. The manager brought my food out himself and explained all the ingredients and cooking methods to confirm the safety! This is definitely my new favorite spot.
My new favorite restaurant. I have Celiac and Wish I lived closer. Came here on vacation and it was great to know I would not get sick from eating their food. Waitress was very knowledgeable and the food is fabulous. I would recommend this to everyone. Gluten free beer available, gluten free rolls, and gluten free deserts as well.
GF Menu items are clearly marked. The waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She even made sure to double check with the chef that my order was indeed gluten free.
Love love love legal seafood. My first time at this location but have been to the one in the airport and in tysons. All excellent. When I started to order they had brought out regular rolls and when I mentioned gf the waitress went straight away to order me some yummy warm gf rolls. Gf fish and shrimp and fries and Greek salad shared among us. It was all super yummy. Always recommend legal seafood. Wonderful!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will come here again.
LSF was recommended on a travel Website and was a quick 2 min walk from the Hilton. The server, Meredith, was bright and bubbly, and very passionate about the food and restaurant, especially the Gluten-Free options. On her recommendation I ordered the GF Fish and Chips and their GF beer. Being from NZ, I am always a starter for good F&C. Their attention to the many GF options and to food handling is outstanding. F&C looked great. But lacked flavour (needed salt and 'something' in the batter). Onion straws were dry. Chips the stringy McDonald type and a bit cool. GF beer was great. I will go back, but probably opt for the Snapper, which looked great at next table.
Absolutely fantastic! Everything from the GF buns to the GF fried fish to the GF crispy risotto cake and GF braised greens with bacon was superb. Manager personally checked the food and delivered it to me. Can't wait to eat here again!!
Nice selection of GF. Manager reviews all orders. The GF buns are amazing!
Gluten free options AMAZING! I had fried fish and chips too with fried onion strings and I almost cried! It was really good even for my non gf husband. He said the batter was perfect. 👍🏻. The salad was fresh and tasty and the GM brought over hot gluten free rolls with butter which were the best gf rolls I've ever had. Still a little drier than regular, but with butter on the top you barely notice. He explained that from their point of view many are trying to avoid gluten and desire more healthy eating, so they are doing their best to meet the need. The gf options on the menu were extensive. Each item that could be made gf had a little icon beside it making it very easy to scan the options. My husband said the clam chowder was really good too. The fish and chips were $20 which is a bit high, but when I tasted it, it was amazing. The price might limit me from visiting as often as I'd like, but I'll be back!
One of the best GF restaurant experiences I have ever had. GF rolls were brought out for me and the manager brought out each portion of my meal. They also have separate oil and GF breading if you want anything fried!
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.
Best gf safe meal in long time. Fried seafood platter was great. Manager explained the oil and breading and brought everything out himself.
Great gluten free spot. GF menu; GF bread; GF-trained staff.
Wow!!! I cleaned my plate for the first time in years while out to eat!!!! GF fried scallops, jasmine rice, garlic/onion cauliflower..... Delicious! Also had a "lite clam chowder" that is gf; it was good as well but scallops come first! :) GF beer as well as cider. Highly recommend. Was worth the extra $$
Really enjoy all the gluten free options and love the fact they bring out gf bread!
Huge GF menu. They really do an amazing job! The manager stopped by several times to make sure everything was perfect. Always a favorite spot!
Very good food. Very good service. They really understand how to be gluten free.
Excellent choice for dinner!! Our waiter helped with our GF and DF questions. The only "mess-up" came when we realized that my husband could have requested egg wash prior to frying as opposed to a buttermilk wash. He had the Fisherman's Platter. He was very pleased with the taste!! I had the char-grilled snapper with broccoli and rice which covered my GF and DF needs. The GF rolls are also DF which we had with olive oil brought to the table as opposed to butter. When I asked if the rolls were made in house, they said no, but they wrote down the name of the company from which they were ordered. The rolls are made specifically for the restaurant, but I look forward to checking out the website for other GF possibilities. We will definitely return when back in DC!!!
used to be very good. still good with allergy-friendly dining, but the most recent time we went, with multiple people with different allergies at the table (that's why we chose this place bc they've always handled it well), we waited over an hour for food, and no check in from management. poor waiter got stuck in the middle, fearing that we would leave him no tip. manager emerged only bc we ask for one at the end of the meal, and a small discount was reluctantly offered. not much of a heartfelt apology either. makes it hard to think about returning to this location with that kind of service.
Flying through Boston's Logan airport today for a late night flight to Canada. Needed to find some dinner during my 90 minute layover and was lucky enough to find this across from my gate. It's a bit pricey like any other airport restaurant, but worth it. So the majority of the menu is or can be GF. What a find. So since I'm in Boston I had to have clam chowder and legals fried clams. It's been years since I've had fried clams in a restaurant so had to do it. Chowder was great. The fried clams were good. So per server all their fryers in all locations are GF.
I have to change my initial rating. While I don't think I was glutened with this meal, I did get violent food poisoning. I ate grilled trout and coleslaw (& some fries). Not sure what happened. It was bad. I'm sad to cross this one off my list of choices. Initial Response: Great meal. It was a relief to eat here. They knew what they were doing. My first French fries since being diagnosed with celiac.
They were great! The manager brought out my food, showed me the ticket, which was marked celiac, and assured they took all the right measures to keep me safe and I felt fine after eating a salad and mussels. The restaurant trains staff in celiac and cross contamination and started a gluten free/celiac friendly food program on in 2005. I'm amazed and pleasantly surprised
This place is fantastic! I mentioned to the server that I needed GF options. She was knowledgeable and friendly. And I finally got to have something GF and fried! The buffalo fried shrimp was fantastic! They brought warm GF buns to the table, so I was able to enjoy while the folks I dined with has their own buns (served separately). Absolutely great food, no reactions. The only problem was I ate waaaaay more than I should have!
I usually stay away from chain restaurants, but not in this case. I love this place. Sometimes I crave comfort foods and they have an extensive menu of things to choose from. Their fried shrimp and calamari is delicious. I've eaten here many times while traveling and is has always been safe.
Amazing menu for gluten free! Sitting here now and thrilled... so hard to eat in airports usually!
Whenever I am in DC or Boston, I must go to Legal Seafoods! I have Celiac Disease and they are very careful. Their warm gluten free rolls are delicious. Even my gluten eating friends were surprised by how good they were. One time in DC I had fried oysters. Oh my goodness! After my diagnosis, I didn't think I would ever be able to have fried oysters again. I was thrilled. I thought they were delicious.
Manager brought all my food personally. Everything was delicious including the gluten free rolls. I had scallops over a bacon hash wonderful. Lobster And a chocolate pudding cake for desert. Everything was delicious!!
Thank god for legals! No one has tried harder to push the gluten free/celiac cause than these guys. While some say it taste like chain food I think they have managed to stay ahead of other chains and their stale menus or bland food. Legals uses GF ingredients and fryers for all of their fried food and is very careful with cross contamination. Where else can you get fried fish, bread and clam chowder that is GF!? I would love it if they had lobster rolls with GF bread or hot dog bun, others have mastered this and it wouldn't take much (yes they will make with their GF rolls but its just not the same). Please don't criticize Legals even if you don't love the food because they have done so much to advance GF/Celiac causes and it's not just for the diet fad, they have real allergic sufferers in mind.
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). Some reviewer said the whole kitchen is GF. That's not true.
Menu lists gf sandwiches without any reference to no gluten free buns or rolls. So basically it's a pile of food on a plate. The manager, Juan, was cordial in telling us we should have known. Again, they are sold as gluten free Sandwiches but the menu says nothing about no gluten free bread or rolls for the sandwich to come on. What a shitty experience, LS used to be outstanding with gf.
Was really wowed by attention to detail on cross contamination. Server asked if the grill was ok or if I needed a clean skillet. Despite being quite busy, the manager was alerted and delivered my meal personally. Delicious food and great cocktail menu.
Love love love!!! Lots of great options, me and my mom swear by this place. I am allergic to dairy and gluten so eating out at a place I can enjoy safely can be fairly daunting. I let them know and they told me if they could do certain dishes. Gluten free dishes are clearly marked with a little leaf. I cannot eat the fried foods as the batter has dairy, but i can appreciate gluten free fried food even if I can't eat it! I had the snapper verde with fries and spinach and it was AMAZING. Food is pricey so be mindful, but if you can swing it then it is very worth it!
The fried items marked GF on the menu are cooked in a shared fryer. Our server made us aware of this prior to our order, so we were able to avoid these items. I wish they would mark this on the menu. Beyond this issue, my experiences at the Legal Test Kitchen in South Boston have been overwhelmingly positive. The servers are very knowledgeable, the restaurant offers good gluten free rolls, and GF items are delivered separately to the table by the manager. Lots of good menu options.
This is the only place in the Metrowest area that I know that has gluten free baked stuffed lobster and it is truly delicious!! Gluten free calamari is awesome and the sides available are excellent. This may be pricey to some but it's worth every dime if you want to really enjoy a tasty gluten free meal.
A very nice experience. The newly remodeled interior & some interesting additions to the gluten free options makes it worth another visit. Now the regular menu is marked with an icon to help you make selections.
