Fodor's Review

Paying homage both to the waterfront legend it replaces—Jimmy's Harborside—and its own family-owned roots, Legal Harborside is an intentional one-off, three-floor, 20,000-square-foot facility unlike any other restaurant in the chain. Level 3 is a rooftop bar and lounge with a sushi menu and copper-fronted fireplace, three walls of windows, and two patios overlooking the waterfront. Level 1 has a fish market, picnic-like tables overlooking the marina, and a New England seafood menu. However, it's Level 2, open only for dinner, which tries something different with its experimental menu and fine-dining setting not offered at any other Legal Sea Food. Apps range from the traditional (lobster soup) to the more unusual octopus terrine with chorizo; filet mignon with Alaskan king crab goes beyond your standard surf and turf dinner entrée, while seasonal vegetables add a fresh touch to the butter-poached lobster. The wine list has 50 varieties carefully selected from vintners who, like Legal Sea Food, are committed to keeping it all in the family.
