The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. Located in the courtyard of the Charles Hotel, our restaurant evokes the simple style of the original Legal Sea Foods that was in nearby Inman Square, Cambridge. In warmer months our outside patio reels in those who choose the fresh seafood and fresh air combo. <br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"we have been several times - always come when we are in town - ordered the special of the day - baked haddock with pasta - was mostly pasta - had to dig to find the haddock and still barely found any."

With a seasonally changing menu and nightly specials, The Red House offers European-style cuisine with the convenience of ordering most items in your choice of appetizer & entree size. The Red House setting is intimate and cozy, tucked into a beautifully renovated historic home in the heart of Harvard Square. Most recently, The Red House has begun collaborating with its very own certified organic local farm to bring you the freshest foods possible throughout the New England growing season.

Trabocco brings something new and exciting to Alameda. Chef-owner, Giuseppe Naccarelli presents a seasonally inspired menu of classic Italian dishes with a modern twist, influenced by the cuisine of his native region of Abruzzo. <br />A Trabocco is a unique fishing pier found along the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. Architect and Designer Lev Weisbach of Weisbach Architecture|Design was inspired by the beautiful Trabocchi of Abruzzo when he created his spectacular design. With its reclaimed wood ceilings, dramatic copper encased fireplace, and modern bar Trabocco is warm and welcoming yet strikingly dramatic and modern.

"We have been to this restaurant 4 times - this was the worst in terms of service ! Lady server only came to take our order for the main course and dessert. It took several attempts to track her down just to get refills of water ! We expected better service - considering we were a large party ! She never even smiled or apologized for not giving us water !
disappointing poor service - have been 4 times to restaurant. This was the WORST SERVICE ! lady waitress gave us minimum service - took order for main course and dessert difficult to track down on water ! would not like to be seated at her table again !
I brought my in-laws from Hong Kong as well as long-time family friends !
