Diner Reviews
  • "Locale is the best kept local in Astoria. Great care is taken with food preparation and the staff was accommodating. The crostini were as good as any I've had in Umbria and the fish dishes were outstanding. Very reasonable corkage fee makes it an outstanding value. We'll be back often."

  • "The food was excellent: the shaved Brussels sprouts appetizer is both brilliant and delicious. The Linguine Nero was just the right amount of spicy. Locale is the kind of restaurant you want to come back to so you can try every single menu item. The space is great with huge windows looking out onto the street. Most of all, we had a great experience with the staff. Even on a busy Saturday night, they were able to accommodate our somewhat-rushed timeline to catch a movie. Couldn't ask for a better night of food and can't to return."

  • "We were not able to make a reservation for 4 with several tables being available once we arrived. When we were seated it was very drafty at our table due to absence of outer door. So every time clients would come in or out - it would be cold to the extend that we had to have our coats on shoulders. Given it was a very warm February day, we were lucky. We asked to be moved - staff did not put any effort to accommodate us. Food was good, but not good enough to get over the discomfort of the chill."

  • "Coming in from Manhattan I know little about Queens and just picked this placed from OpenTable recommendations by Steinway Station. The maître d' was this cool polite hipster guy. The staff was very attentive, salad, pasta, and veal scallopini great, and to top it off cocktails were awesome. If this place was nearby me I'd be a regular."

  • "I love Locale, and since it's right around the corner I always chide myself that I don't come as often as I can. The food is always smartly done, the service helpful and lovely (although sometimes a little slow to start) and it has the ability to be versatile. Anything from a romantic date, to dinner or brunch with friends."

  • "Decided to go for dinner to celebrate my birthday with a few girlfriends who drove in from Nassau County. It had been a few years since I had been there - plans never worked out to go back. Well, the food was very good and service was excellent! The menu has a little bit of everything. We ordered 4 appetizers along with drinks, our main entrees and dessert. It was well presented and good. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful when asked questions and recommendations. It's away from the regular Astoria hangouts - has a bit of a Manhattan vibe to it. Wasn't as crowded as I thought it might be on a Friday night but that could have been due to spring break. I love this place and would definitely go back again."

  • "One of the better choices in Astoria, Locale is relatively small, though quite pleasant. Though the menu is limited, the selections are well conceived. The noise varies between moderate and a bit too much. Parking is generally available within a short distance. By all means, go and enjoy."
