    Had a bad experience due to service and not paying attention to a reservation or timing in the dining room. I can't rate the food as it took 25 mins to receive a glass of wine and 50 mins to possibly have oysters delivered to the table. I will not return.

    Really thought I'd love this place but there we a few things that prevented better ratings. We were seated upstairs and it was uncomfortably warm up there. Service was pretty slow and my pork chop arrived rare instead of medium. They replaced it but it took forever. They did offer a free dessert and the rest of our food was pretty good.

    The food was extremely overseasoned with salt and pepper and the mac n cheese tasted like it was out of a box. The fried chicken looked like one giant chicken nugget. The fries were good and the poutine was delicious. Drinks were good. Interior is nice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/6/2012
    Our waiter was very accommodating except that he didn't notice when my dinner partner arrived which annoyed her a bit. Food was great! We ended up ordering from the happy hour small plates so it was also very affordable. As to accommodation and the wine list, I asked the waiter when I first got there if they had anything by-the-glass that wasn't on the menu and they did! (I always like it when this happens.)My partner and I have been eating local for over three years now so this place was an instant attraction. Many of the restaurants in Seattle have focused on local sources so Local 360 is not unique but their delivery (and service, in most cases) is excellent. I'd recommend it to almost everyone (except for those "Denny's" fans ;^)!

    Dined on 3/15/2012
    The concept is good--EAT LOCAL. However, the execution could be a lot better. My partner ordered the beef barley soup--like mom makes--nothing special. Then the crispy pig's ears in bleu cheese sauce--good sauce, pig's ears more the consistency of chewing gum. Then we had the mussels. Definitely the highlight-very plump and fresh. However, they only came with butter to dip-definitely boring. I had the "fried chicken". A concoction of a rolled chicken breast with bacon mousse(indistinguishable)-with collards(too vinegary)over cheesy grits(worst I've ever had-Like a McD's chicken patty with sides. Very meat-centric, vegetarians beware. Crowd very young-20-30 something-loud,trendy cocktail scene.

    Excellent food, great prices for what you get. Go for the 3 for $30, you won't be disappointed. Tried the local wine flight, so much ridiculously flavorful wine for only $13. Tough to be such an tasty meal at under $50.

  • At first glance we were worried
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/13/2012
    At first glance we were worried about the experieince. The booths are a little hard, kind of like Catholic church, but the service was terrific. The server was very knowledgeable about the resturant and the food even though he was fairly new. The food was surprisingly great, we worried about a gamey taste to the rabbit, but the spices used were fantastic. The pate was delightful. The homemade meatloaf sandwich was huge and tasted like mom's old fashioned kind. We were concerned about the bread pudding as we have found many establishments just cannot duplicate a family tradition, but 360 did it. A hardy portion, with great taste, correctly seasoned and the ice cream was "to die for." Loved the lunch experience, we will be back.

    It was ok but not great. We were there for brunch on Sunday and the service wasn't very good (it wasn't even busy). There were four of us and most of our food was bland. I'd probably try it again though to give it another chance.

    I loved my meal here. My husband and I ordered a bunch of starters and small plates to share so we could really get a feel for the food. I'm glad we did as everything we ate was pretty awesome. Love the premise of the restaurant and love that even the liquor is sourced locally. Pretty cool to get Whiskey, Gin and Vodka from all local distilleries. I would definitely recommend going here and ordering a bunch of stuff to share you won't regret it.

    This was the restaurant we chose for right after our courthouse wedding. There were a few extras to add on to the group and was not at all a problem for the staff to accommodate. the food was amazing the cocktails were amazing and with appetizers, entrees and drinks the bill was very reasonable. I will definitely be coming back here and with all of the places to eat in this town I don't say that often enough. Thank you for the wonderful and memorable experience!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/4/2012
    I had high hopes for this place - I love the concept and had stopped in for a drink and had a great time a few months ago. The food was good, but the service was awful. We waited nearly 20 minutes for the waitress to take our order for drinks. Once we finally placed our orders it took another 10 minutes for her to come back and tell us one of the entrees we had ordered was not available. Our request for no ice in a specialty soda was ignored. We all ended up ordering the burger, which was good, but served on a very basic bun. For the price, I was expecting nicer bread. The experience overall was very disappointing.

    The evening special (rabbit w/ gnocci & mushrooms) was outstanding. Very lively place. It's pretty loud in the back though- we watched two groups that asked to be moved somewhere else (I am hoping it wasn't to move from us two!). The cheese selections was just ok. First time in- we'll go back!
