Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "I'm looking for a place to host my sisters first baby shower and spoke with john who I believe is the owner and was so helpful friendly and informative about hosting her shower at his restaurant. Our waiter Tyrell was also very nice and attentive, I hope I spelled his name correctly."

  • "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."

  • "My best friend and I went for brunch while she was in town this weekend. She loved the portabello mushroom benedict and I REALLY loved the cheddar grits I had with poached eggs and an English Muffin. Just lovely! And the owner, Johnny, was very welcoming. Will definitely be back! I am curious about dinner!"
