    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!

    Went to MT Local for dinner Friday evening. The service was great, the waitress was knowledgeable, the food was well presented and excellent overall, and the wine choices we good, but not extensive. While a bit noisy, we could still converse well. Overall we got exactly what we expect when we go to MT Local, an excellent meal with excellent service.

    I some times wonder why I even go to other restaurants. MT Local has been consistently great since it first opened. It's in a more casual format than when it opened as Michael Timothy's. I preferred it a bit more formal but it's still great. I highly recommend it.

    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.

    Food was really great, and our waitress was attentive. Only complaints were a very limited menu (although everything was excellent), and it took almost an hour after appetizers for our meals to arrive. But it was a packed house.

    I took the Mrs. for brunch. For Mother's Day MT's did a buffet. Selections were all tasty, with the Chef out front, making sure there was proper quality and service. Due to the occasion it was really full, but we did not feel pressured to rush. Service was stellar. Some of the best item were the home fries, chicken marsala, and the breads. Chef had a duel carving station, with ham and roast beef, both of which were tasty. We did not try desserts as we were full from the other offerings. Cocktails and coffee were both excellent.

    Having been to MT's many times before I wanted to take my wife and a frend for dinner. My friend used to be a chef owner of a restauraunt in Chicago so I was looking for something I thought would be appropriate. Unfortunately MT's didn't deliver. The food, while creative in description was bland and uninspiring. Calamari app was undercooked (tough to send back when it is a fried dish). The swordfish entre was overcooked and the Gen Tao lobster was overly sweet (yes, sweet) from a sause that was over the top with Hoisin. The service, while pleasant, needs additional training. Having always liked MT's I hope that improvements can be made to this local gem.

    I stumbled across MT Local on my way through Nashua and decided to give it a try. What a delightful dining experience. It's not fancy- special occasion place, but rather a nice bistro- style atmosphere. The food was excellent- My dinner companion had the beef tournedos and ceasar salad- I had the scallops with zucchini pasta- and black bean soup. Several gluten free dishes on the menus. Nice options for smaller appetites on the menu. The pear martinis were excellent. Our waitress was amazing.

    One of our favorite local restaurants! Reservations are definitely needed, or plan on a long wait at the crowded bar area. Love that they will custom make whatever you want. Ingredients are seasonal and local whenever possible, so sometimes you can't get something if it's not in season ~ that's ok, even fresher! Consistently good meals and drinks, service is usually very good as well. Highly recommend!

    I was looking for a new dining experience not all that far from home without city hassle. I found MT's Local Kitchen & Wine bar on Open Table. We arrived a bit early, which was good because parking was a challenge on Main St., Nashua, NH. Our table was ready at the designated time. Meghan was our waitress and was able to provide good information to every question we asked. Service was excellent and she followed our lead for timing. The restaurant was a good bit more casual than I expected, however there was a dining room side with white table cloths. Would definitely return.

    This is my favorite restaurant outside of Boston. We can always expect the food to be delicious. From the wine, to the appetizers, our favorite pizza (carmelized onion, bacon and chicken) to the entrees and finally the dessert! It is always impeccable! Our service usually matches the food. We had our first bad service there ever. He was perfectly nice, but very inattentive. It took approximately 20 minutes from when we ordered our wine to when we received it. The bartender had to actually bring the wine to our server. Our pizza, usually hot when we get it was warm and completely cool by the time we started on our second piece. Once we got our dessert it was another 30 minutes before we had to get his attention so we could get the check.

    I was looking for a special place to bring my wife for Valentine's Day. After some searching via OpenTable I came across MT's Local Kitchen and Wine Bar. The reviews were very positive so I took a chance. We were seated immediately. We waited a few minutes for our waitress to come by and take our drink order and then a few more minutes for our dinner order. The place was very busy but it was upbeat and manageable. Our appetizer of a crab cake was good, but not great. The middle was barely warm and it was generally bland. Our dinners, however, were excellent. Beef tournedos were excellent as well as my wife's scallops. We were in no rush and the waitress sensed this so we weren't rushed out which was nice. Overall an excellent experience.
