Diner Reviews
  • "The good - easy street parking, open fairly early. The bad - chipped cup, beverages arrived at different times, cream came after coffee was cold, had to request spoon. Refills not forthcoming. Pancakes needed salt in batter, orange flavor missing. Overall mediocre."

  • "This is a was a great find. It was recommended by a friend and lived up to my expectations. Our eyes were definitely bigger than our stomach but we seemed to finish everything put in front of us. The cocktails were also amazing. My date had a great citrus Cosmo and I had a vodka on the rocks made with Corbin Sweet Potato Vodka. I will frequent this new treasure."

  • "Attentive friendly service, nice varied wine list, our entrees were cooked perfectly; save room for the chocolate dessert."

  • "Everything was great except for the fact that we had to wait 45 minutes after our reservation to get our table. There were 3 other birthday parties of people that weren't leaving their tables so instead of asking them to leave they made us an hour later. Would return, but not with a group."

  • "The food was very good. Was a little surprised with the Burratta being flavored with a spicy oil (I have always had it with sweet balsamic), but the fungi pizza was amazing. The noise level, however, is a real challenge. Even with a 6:30 seating time, by the time the main course came, you can't carry on a conversation with the person next to you without yelling."

  • "The evening could have been a disaster. I booked a business dinner for five but the reservation only reflected two. The hostess on a very busy night found seats for us to wait, gave us a complimentary drink and fries and treated us not as a problem but with sincere concern and desire to keep us happy. We were seated and the experience with both the food and service continued to be excellent. I highly recommend the restaurant."

  • "large communal tables; great service or small 2-tops for date night my wife and I live around the corner - this is our go-to spot in SOMA"

  • "And a great wine list. Have never been disappointed here."

  • "Food is always great. Brussel sprouts and truffle fries are must haves. My first Fungi pizza was burnt and they remade it immediately. Took some time, but it was worth the wait!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Pros - The food and the wait staff were outstanding. Cons - The hostess was rude, lunch was overpriced and we received an unpleasant surprise at the end of our meal: A 4% surcharge was added to our already-expensive check "to meet San Francisco mandates.""

  • "The food was great, especially the special: steck sandwich with blue cheeses and caramelized onions. And, of course, a heap of fries! Our waiter made a wonderful recommendation."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We have been to Local several times but this last visit was the best. Their bolognese was wonderful! The pasta was velvety smooth and the sauce was a traditional sauce with ca hint of heat. Pork chop was extremely moist, which is difficult from my experience. Wait staff was attentive and very friendly."

  • "I have been coming here for years when I am in SF....and I love it! The food is great, the atmosphere is relaxed, and the wine selection is always outstanding. And with rare exception, the service is tops."

  • "Their meat order had not arrived by lunchtime, so the choice of entres was quite limited. Left hungry."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "We waited for too long to be attended to by a server. Then our order was also delayed. The host comped our first glass of wine and apologized."

  • "Our family spend Mothers Day here - mom, grandmother, grandfather, and 2 school age boys. The ambiance was great, the service excellent, and the staff was incredibly warm and receptive. The menu had choices for everyone - even the 5 year old. Bottomless mimosas, too. For our family, the option for an early reservation (9am) was also great. We will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had two of their pizza's and both were excellent. My favority was the funghi which is served with Truffle oil and argula. The place is small, and quite noisy. You really had to talk loud to be heard by people at your own table. Even though it was loud I would go back for the pizza. "

  • "I can always count on a great meal. The food is delicious and plentiful and I love the communal table. "

  • "This was my second time dining at Local Kitchen. The first time it was early and a chilly, foggy SF night. The harvest pasta and red wine were great and I really enjoyed it. The second time was just at the end of happy hour on a warm evening. There was confusion about our reservation, the service was haphazard although well meaning. The biggest problem is the noise level. Cement floor, metal stools and an open kitchen combine to make it far too noisy to hear the person across the table. I won't go back because i am tired of restaurants where the din is so loud I end up with a headache and a sore throat at the end of the meal. "

  • "I came for lunch with a friend who had never been before. The service was off the charts amazing, super friendly and attentive. I had the tuna and salmon salad which was very generous with the fish and the salad was really fresh. My friend had the burger w/ bacon and fries and said it was one of the better burgers he has had in a while. Food and service is always amazing here, one of my favorite spots!"
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "This is a good place for a quick dinner or brunch if you live in the neighborhood. The decor is simple and the food is really good, especially the pizza and cocktails! Service could be improved a but (i.e. hostess seems stressed and doesn't smile), but it wasn't bad service either."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Had an awesome brunch before heading to the Giants game. The food was delish, the waiter super attendant and friendly. Will definitely be back for more....."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Food has been always great when I've gone there. Lunch and dinners have very attentive servers. Brunch service needs a little work but generally the food is great. Portions are decent to large. Servers are friendly. Never felt rushed. Also have a wine bar area and it's very relaxing. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Amazing, food was great, ambiance amazing as usual, love the burata, roast chicken was to die for, and David, as always, WAS beyond a wealth of knowledge on what GREAT wine is all about. i love this place and when in SF, anywhere in SF, head over to LK&WM, it is what great dining is all about."

  • "Convenient to SOHO, and the staff were very friendly and nice. The food, however, was simply passable."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The food was definitely not as good as it used to be. The scallops were large and perfectly cooked but bland. The lentils accompanying it were undercooked. Nothing on the plate woke up the taste buds. The calzone was also so so. The wine list is very good. Not great value. Too bad because the place is very attractive and has great potential."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Brunch is one of my favorite things in life and this has now become my favorite brunch spot. The bottomless mimosas are truly bottomless and I never had to ask for more. The breakfast potatoes are literally the best ever. I ordered classic eggs Benedict, which were absolutely phenomenal, but looking around at everyone else's dishes I don't think you could order anything bad! I highly recommend this spot for brunch!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "It was utterly delicious. Amazing service from the waiter. Very funny, likeable, and attentive! Qualm would be the scallop dish...3 scallops for 28 dollars? Really?"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Service is spectacular. Salads great. The pizza was good but not as good as I've had there in the past. Nonetheless, I'll go back and give it another whirl."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The kitchen is quite good, serving solid and occasionally innovative dishes consistently. The décor is a must for concrete enthusiasts and is quintessential "urban chic", by which I mean "appeals to self-absorbed tech types who wouldn't know good taste if it hit them on the head." Service is a bit slow, but well-meaning. Worth a lunch if you are in the area."

  • "Loved the bottomless mimosas! Food was great. We had the oatmeal and the ribeye with eggs and salad! Our server that day was Didie and he was great!"
