We split the grilled octopus and it was excellent. Other appetizers shrimp wellington, oysters on the 1/2 shell, beef carpaccio, fried calamari and crab cakes. Soups include lobster bisque and mushroom brie. Entree's include several pasta dishes, steaks, seafood, lamb shank and a pork chop. There were other entree's that I do not remember. The entree's were paired with a side. I had the best filet mignon I have ever eaten. It was topped with foie gras and had an excellent wine sauce. The filet was paired with truffle oil mas potatoes. My husband had the rib eye with marble salted potatoes. There are additional sides to order including lobster mac and cheese. We did not order dessert. They had key lime pie and chocolate cake. This was the soft opening menu. I asked to see the lunch menu and it has not been finalized. They are concentrating on the dinner menu. George was our server and one of my favorite servers in TV. Everything was top shelf. ambience, food and service. We will definitely return. Owners and mangers were visiting each table.

Right now it is a soft opening.
Great dining review. Thanks. It sounds like a wishlist for all looking for upscale dining within the confines.

Two quick thoughts after reading the comments. First is about the inspection and app. As someone that thru my life has worked in the food industry, inspections catch some but not all issues and never will. So a clean inspection can mean very little. As far as an app to tell you what restaurant is clean, as with any info from the internet how do you know where the info came from and who put it out there and for what reason. We all know that everything you read on the internet is gospel, with sound investigation and infallible.

I’ve pretty much moved on from this subject, but will clarify once and definitely move on from this issue.
The What the Health app is an electronic version of the state’s health inspection. I recognize that one must be cautious about the source of information, but direct info from the Health Department seems solid.

Looking forward to dinner at Legacy Resturant at 6! Lopez was always my favorite place, and feel sure that the Suileiman family will keep it my favorite place. Loved Amerikanos when the Suileman family owned it. (Still great with new owners).

Look, the inspectors are simply following a prepared script. So, an employee has a fountain drink in a cup without a lid. That's a violation. Eggs in their shell are sitting above other food in the cooler. That's a violation because who knows, the eggs could just crack all of a sudden. My point is, many of the Code violations you read on line in general amount to nothing. Case in point, if the Legacy violations were that bad, no way would they have been given a clean bill one day after. As to the mouse droppings, mice are EXTREMELY hard to get rid of, especially when they have established a home over a long period of time. Take a look at the previous inspections BEFORE the current owners took over. I fully expect the new owners to do whatever is necessary to make sure the mice are encouraged to relocate elsewhere. As for me, I'm looking forward to returning to the "new" Lopez for a great dining experience!

While I am always suspect of reviews on public sites, your app is probably about as legit...as can be found.

Thanks for the tip.

I think this family does a great job with all of their restaurants.

I too had a great experience at Legacy. The food was fabulous. The price reflex a fine dinning experience, but so did the food. I had the Pork Shank and I can't tell you how good it was. The Shrimp Wellington as an appetizer was also my favorite. Our server was very attentive and the drinks were made correctly. The decor is very modern, and you can tell the owners want this restaurant to be a great dinning experience for special occasions. I will defiantly be back! It's difficult to start restaurants in The Villages, so please go there and then form an opinion.
