  • "What a fun and relaxing atmosphere in which to dine after a long week of work. food is excellent and the menu is very varied. should you have any special requests, they are most accommodating. when the weather gets nicer, the patio should be a great place to meet friends for a drink or dinner. I would not hesitate to bring my children there."

  • "We came here for Valentine's Day and we're very disappointed with our experience. The food was just not worth the price we paid. I couldn't believe the poor quality of the dishes. We've had better food at pubs! We started with the calamari which was terribly battered and very chewy to eat. The goat cheese gnocchi was way too overpowering and not enjoyable. Even the lobster ravioli had a strange texture. Truthfully the best dish of the night was the kids' plain buttered pasta. Our cappuccinos even tasted bitter. For the money we paid it was NOT worth it and we wouldn't go back."

  • "Had been here with friends during the summer when dining outside was available. We recently were at a nearby movie with the same friends and decided to try it again. We were not disappointed. Service is excellent as is the food. Pleasant piano music was playing in the background adding to the ambience (not live). We were early but for a dark, rainy winter Tuesday evening, the restaurant filled quickly. As I said, great experience but not cheap ($234 + tip)."

  • "...Saturday night and this was the first time and oh my god was it bad. We waited for 20 minutes before someone even came to give us menu's and didn't even ask for our drink order. I finally had to tell the hostess in order to get help! It was way too loud because there is nothing to lessen the noise level. Considering how much we eat out, I really can't believe how bad this place was and no one seemed to care!"

  • "We had been recommended by several friends. The food was good, not great and the service was very disappointing. It took a long time to get a drink. Our water glasses weren't refilled. Our waiter never asked how our meal was or if we needed anything. He was clueless. We won't be returning to Locale. Our waiter even questioned us about his low gratuity......how rude!"
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food and service were excellent. I would prefer it to be less noisy, but when the smaller dining room is full, this is a problem. I also would like the lighting less bright. Overall though. locale is very special. The food is creative and the servers are attentive. I am not surprised that it has become a popular neighborhood restaurant."

  • "We walked out after waiting 15 minutes without even being acknowledged. Maybe 15 waiters, busboys, and others walked by our table without even a glass of water! When the manager stopped at the table adjacent to us then walked by ours we walked out. Now we see why this restaurant was empty and D'Amore, one mile away, is always packed!!"

  • "Did not feel welcomed, cool and detached staff (hostess & waiters). Food mediocre. Ambiance of the room we dined in was sterile."
