A word from Local 360 Cafe & Bar
Local 360 is a sustainable modern American restaurant based in the heart of downtown at the corner of 1st and Bell. Our emphasis is on local sourcing, with the majority of it falling within a 360 mile radius of Seattle.

Our products are sourced from the most humane farms we can find. Ideally, 90% of our raw ingredients come from within 360 miles of Seattle. Nothing we are doing is innovative or new — on the contrary, we are returning to a simpler way of functioning as a business while supporting our community.

Local 360's bar is fully stocked with the largest selection of NW distilled spirits, wines and beer.

The two private dining rooms, Chef's Table and Loft, are rustic rooms with their own kitchen, bar, and customized amenities suited for seated parties up to 65 guests and up to 75 guests in a reception setting.

  • The atmostphere at Local360
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/16/2012
    The atmostphere at Local360 is more laid back than your usual Belltown restaurant. The concept is very trendy, serving food made from ingredients that are sourced within 360 miles of Seattle. All the dishes we had were quite good, although most were pretty rich. The service could have been better. There was no one at the host stand when we arrived and it took several minutes for anyone to greet us. Even the waitress who was returning menus to the fron didn't give the usual, "Someone will be with you shortly" line. Once seated our waitress took her time coming around to our table. The drinks we ordered, while very tasty, took at least ten minutes to get to our table. They were basically very busy without the staff to accomodate.

    Dined on 6/16/2012
    Some items seemed reasonably priced while others, for instance the 1/4 baguette for $4 seemed overpriced. The entire menu is not meant for anyone watching calories or fat intake. Our group of 6 shared all the dishes and found the $50 steak to be the best value. The downside was that it took 45 min. to prepare, but we were fully warned. Our waitperson was relatively new but knowledgeable and well trained.

    Great for Happy Hour... However, don't plan on having many drinks... I would take a full 15 -20 once I ordered one to have it brought to my table... Food was hit and miss... we ordered approx 6 different items and 3 were really good and the others were not worth eating. Bright side is the waiter comped, one of our not so great dishes and replaced it with the muscles, that were wonderful.

    I love this place! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is delicious. On my last visit, my friends and I shared a beet salad, poutine with braised short rib, and oysters on the half shell. The beet salad was served with greens, feta, walnuts and orange slices. I could have done without the oranges, but overall, it was very enjoyable. The poutine with braised short rib was a grest dish to share. Lots of thick-cut fries drenched in a light cheddar gravy, served with a few ounces of tender short rib. We finished the entire dish. The oysters had an amazing mignonette and were definitely the highlight, fresh and delicious! Our server recommended the perfect white wine. Give this place a try!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/19/2012
    Local 360 is an amazing find. With everything served being sourced from within a 360 mile radius it feels very special. This will be a perfect place to bring out of town guests. The food is robust, full-flavored and delicious. The cocktails taste fresh & are made with real ingredients (no syrupy or artificial tasting drinks). We rarely order deserts at restaurants because they're typically very generic (regardless of what description they have) but the Local 360 changed our mind on that. Wow! We'll definitely be back!

  • We had Mother's Day brunch
    Lolly1
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    We had Mother's Day brunch reservations for 1:30 PM - on the late side of the advertised Mother's Day Mimosa Brunch. Our table was not ready when we arrived, but was shortly after. The waitress seemed surprised when we ordered the brunch and was slow to get our mimosas going. They then told us that "a lot of orders are going in now" and asked if they could deliver our courses when they were ready, rather than waiting a long time between courses - which I took to mean they might deliver the entree before we'd finished our salad - but actually meant that dessert came first, followed by a few of our entrees - and then salad - and soup last. That was really not fun. The food was fine but nothing special. The music was VERY loud.

    Our reservation for 7 people was on time. We were brought to a table in an upatairs room which was too warm on a sunny Seattle day. Our food took and hour and a half on this busy Mom's Day. Drinks took 15 to 20 minutes. Overall, I will give them credit because it was a busy holiday but will not eat there again. Food was fine.

    Service was great. Friendly staff, and nice ambiance. We are vegetarians, and the selection and preparation was ok, but not exceptional. The meat items looked good on the menu, but we obviously didn't try them. The concept of the place earns bonus points with us, however, and we'll be back once the menu has time to rotate some new vegetarian items in.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/28/2012
    Though it is a limited menu, the food at Local 360 is excellent. Unfortunately, we were seated in the back room at a table shared with another group of 4. The back room seems to be for larger groups, but we were only a group of 3. It gets rather cold and noisy in the back, and as we walked back through the front room after our meal, we realized that we felt like we had been delegated to the "kids" room. No, there weren't kids, but it did feel like we had been tucked away a bit and had missed out on a part of what Local 360 offers. In addition, our service was quite slow. We think our server was new, but it took a long time for our orders to be taken, and well over 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive. Not quite what we hoped for

    Really thought I'd love this place but there we a few things that prevented better ratings. We were seated upstairs and it was uncomfortably warm up there. Service was pretty slow and my pork chop arrived rare instead of medium. They replaced it but it took forever. They did offer a free dessert and the rest of our food was pretty good.

    Our waiter was very accommodating except that he didn't notice when my dinner partner arrived which annoyed her a bit. Food was great! We ended up ordering from the happy hour small plates so it was also very affordable. As to accommodation and the wine list, I asked the waiter when I first got there if they had anything by-the-glass that wasn't on the menu and they did! (I always like it when this happens.)My partner and I have been eating local for over three years now so this place was an instant attraction. Many of the restaurants in Seattle have focused on local sources so Local 360 is not unique but their delivery (and service, in most cases) is excellent. I'd recommend it to almost everyone (except for those "Denny's" fans ;^)!
