We visited Legal Seafoods on a very busy Saturday nite and the restaurant was packed with many people waiting. It’s a lovely restaurant. They even have a fish tank in the floor ! That being said, the front staff where you come in and leave your name are as an inept bunch as I’ve ever experienced. After leaving our name on the wait list we were told 45 minute wait. After an hour and checking back we were told 6 ahead of us. Another half hour later still 2 ahead of us. Finally we were called but left to stand there while this inept bunch called the next party and seated them leaving us to stand there. Finally one woke up and found us a table. We told the waiter the story which he conveyed to the manager and he treated us to an appetizer which was great. The waiter Brandon was great-couldn’t have had a better server. The food and the dessert were nothing short of delicious. If you can get into this place I recommend eating there, especially if you’re in the Short Hills Mall. Just keep bothering the front staff if you have to wait or you’ll never get seated promptly. I suggest reservations for sure ! Also the prices of their dinner choices were great !
