    Service was excellent - we did not like the wine chosen so without loosing a beat the server made suggestions and said, "let's get something you like. May I recommend..." She the brought 2 tastings to choose from and if we didn't like those, there were plenty more. She was wonderful. Food was very good. spacing of tables excellent but the noise level made me uncomfortable.

    This was our third visit to MT Local. As with previous visits the food was excellent. The lamb special I had was outstanding. Perfectly cooked and very creative and delicious combination of seasonal flavors. Our server was outstanding. She was our server all three visits and is so gracious and knowledgable of the menu and wine pairing. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    We were promptly seated at our reservation time and server Corinna immediately greeted us. Throughout the evening she made appropriate recommendations, was attentive, and her cheerfulness added to the occasion. Food was delicious; from cheese platter app to monkfish stew, eggplant ravioli, and a grilled pizza - all was well prepared and nicely plated. That being said, I do think the prices are on the high side for the quantity of food received; for two of four plates I was surprised at the very small portions. While I am not one who needs massive quantities of food, they were quite small. It was our daughter's birthday and our server surprised her at the end with a special little dessert; very nice touch!

    MTs provided me with the same wonderful food and service I've experienced during several prior visits over the past couple of years. For the first time I dined alone and I was just as pleased. It was a bit noisy due to a group celebrating a birthday sitting nearby which is the only reason I did not rate it 5 stars across the board. I had perfectly grilled scallops for my entrée. I look forward to returning on my next trip to Nashua.

    We have dined here several times in the past and had a really poor experience back in the spring and we decided to try it again because I got a nice email from the manager after posting a rather frank review. I must say we were completely turned around from our previoous visit. Service was excellent, appropriate stemware for the different wines selected, and just the right amount of attention. The food was superb. Lamb special, just that: SPECIAL! My wife's scallop entre was outstanding and the crab cake salad and mediteranian salad were both excellent. I feel that if you write a frank and specific review that isn't positive and you give the place another shot, it is appropriate to provide a positive review when things are great. Nice Job!

    MT's Local -- and before it Michael Timothy's -- has been our go-to restaurant for find dining in Nashua. Fortunately for me, we dined during the two week Oktoberfest special week, so I had the opportunity to sample Michael Buckley's take on Bavarian cooking. Michael trained in Europe under a German chef and his Schnitzel and Sauerbraten were write-about-it-delicious. My wife's fish special -- non-Oktoberfest -- was similarly delicious overall it was a delightfully flavorful evening.

    MT's Local Kitchen and Wine Bar was the first restaurant we tried when we're looking to moving here. Overall, the staff were welcoming and friendly. The noise level was little to moderate noise, which makes diners able to hold their own conversations among their guests. It's a great place for a date and among friends! They also have a really nice wine bar! We are always satisfied with what we order. The food came out in a timely manner. The bread was served with a sweet creamy butter. We enjoyed the Harvest Greens Salad, Roasted Pumpkin Bisque, Wood Fired Swordfish, Cinnamon Creme Caramel, and Flourless Chocolate Toffee Cake. Although, I expected the salad and soup to be bigger in size, the 3-course meal was the perfect size for my stomach.

    The food and the service were excellent. The Vegetarian Onion Soup was INCREDIBLE - and the entrees were very good. My guest had the swordfish and said it was excellent, I had the special Bone In Pork chop and is was good but not great as it was a bit tough, though the root veggies were perfect. The server was great - she was at the table the right amount of times, without being over bearing. The place has a great vibe and I look forward to my next visit. I reserved through Open Table via Trip Advisor (Open Table could not get me a seat, but Trip Advisor did - which mean I get ZERO points - as a side note, this is the third time this has happened, and it is beyond frustrating). If this keeps happening, there is no value to Open Table

    Highly recommended for food and wine. Took clients for dinner. We were there for 3 hours and never once felt rushed. Service was outstanding. Our waitress was informative, polite, and knew when to ask us if we needed anything else since we were talking business. The wine list was reasonable with good California selections by the glass or bottle. I would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

    Cocktails were well prepared, my swordfish was cooked very nicely. Michael, our server, was excellent. He was very attentive and polite but gave my friend and I lots of time to chat and catch up. We shared a key lime mousse for dessert which we both thought was great, tart and sweet and the perfect end to the meal.

    The duck ragout had the perfect storm of ingredients and phenomenal flavors. It was plated beautifully. Loads of water boys regularly circulating. The spinach dip was like non other....a gourmet version with fried pita triangles alone were amazing. Service was fast, and very mindful of us. Loved the whole place. Casual dress for very upscale food. Worth every dime.

    We had lunch here with a friend. Our three selections were delicious, and the service was attentive yet unobtrusive. We were seated in the bar area; with only one other table occupied, the room was quiet, which made for easy conversation. Outside seating is also available. MT's is aesthetically pleasing and not pretentious, with what I would call a French country charm. It's a great place for a relaxing lunch.

    From the warm, inviting service, to the expertly prepared courses, a first rate experience from start to finish. The only negative was the hostess who didn't greet me at the door or ask about my meal as she'd done with other tables. My server was knowledgable about the menu, friendly, and attentive. The food was beyond delicious; fresh and carefully attended to. Overall, a great find.

    No actually, our first experience at MT's Local was great and this was even better. Same wonderful waitress who was just the right amount of attentive. We were in a side dining room which was more private and the ambiance was "date night" perfect. lovely cocktails that were just off the beaten track enough to be memorable without being weird. The food was perfect. Do check out this Nashua NH gem!

    The food was really good and the service was even better. Their "Bacon and Eggs" appetizer was a standout star. The Duck Ragout was also really good. My issue (with restaurants once again) is with their use of generic and low quality stemware. If you're going to charge me a 300% markup on wine, you BETTER provide proper stemware that is grape specific. It's hard to fully enjoy the wine when it's not in the correct glass.
