    Sadly, having had previous good experiences at 360, I must call it quits as a patron of this restaurant. The service was lacking, the attention was non existent, and sadly, the food quality was not nearly what it use to be. The underseasoned and overcooked food lacked creativity and punctuation. For the first time in my life, I sent back an item I could not stomach. The others in my party shared the same experience. The only glimmer of quality was in our server who was pleasant. Alas, the glory days of local 360 seemed to have come and went. So sad

    My daughter and I ate here for Father's Day. We were seated promptly, and the server was friendly enough. The menu was interesting and the food was prepared quickly and served. For all the rave reviews I've read about this place, I don't think it lives up to the hype. It's good food prepared well, but for the Farm-to-Table restaurant model, Clyde Common in Portland does it a lot better. The mistake I made was assuming the bartender knew how to make a Ramos Fizz (I order them at Toulouse Petit all the time). I placed my drink order shortly after we were seated, but it wasn't until I was halfway through the meal that the drink finally showed up, and it was obvious all that time was spent reading on how to make it, and it was a first effort.

    If you're in town for the weekend, or if you live in Seattle, Local 360 is one of those places that you should consider stopping into. The service is good, if not a little tiny bit aloof, and they are on top of their game. But, it's the fact that they deliver some REALLY tasty food more than makes up for any of that Seattle 20-something attitude you might detect. I can't eat them, but more than a couple of my dining buddies have sung praises for their chicken and waffles. The house hot sauce, you should request it if you like a little spice. Also, if you're a beet eater, the beet salad is perfection. Oh! And the coffee is strong and delicious. Local and sustainable ingredients make up some reliably solid food in a bright atmosphere.

    We took my parents here on their first visit to Seattle based on a recommendation by a friend. We made a reservation for 9 am, it was not needed that early but by 10 am it was full and people were waiting. It was worth their wait. The food was excellent and the coffee wonderfully strong. The real highlight was the service. Our waiter was fantastic. He engaged with our group and was attentive to our needs. His easy manor made us feel like we made a new friend. The other staff we talked to were also fantastic.

    I have been there a half dozen times now. Simply does not disappoint. Service is great food is fantastic and i feel like i am supporting my local market because of where they source their food and supplies. You cant go wrong here. Also, their hostess is amazing (really). I know no one ever talks about the hostess but the time before last we were there i screwed up our reservation date and they were packed but she told us to hang tight and go us in anyway about 15 minutes later.

    I really like this place and love the setting and concept. But the food has been overly flavored each time I've been here. The pot pie was too creamy, I couldn't taste/see the vegetables. The pulled pork was so sweet it was hard to taste the rest of the ingredients. Apart from that, a lovely place to have snacks? Maybe not a main meal for me.

    We go here often and love the food. They have excellent lunch but normally we are there for a date night after walking around down town. This visit it was disappointing to find that they were out of 3 of the things we wanted to order. Maybe it is because they just opened the patio and were very busy that day but between the 86's and the food taking longer than normal it was not our best visit.

    Locovores, rejoice! Local 360 is a treasure of a restaurant. Everything served in the restaurant comes from within a 360 mile radius of Seattle. The two small plates we shared were particular standouts: chilled Yakima asparagus served with creamy blue cheese and slivers of pickled onions, and a bowl of briney, garlicky steamed mussels. Our waiter steered us to a rich, elegant, Washington Viogner to go with the mussels. Our shared main course, steak frites, consisted of flavorful, perfectly cooked beef and near-perfect pommes frites, served with aioli. Since we love our veggies, we had a side of sautéed greens (mostly Tuscan kale), with plenty of garlic. Another plus: plenty of gluten-free options on the menu.

    Ended up eating here twice on a recent trip to Seattle. I love the concept that 90% of the food and beverage are sourced within 360 miles. Makes for some excellent craft cocktails and fantastic seasonal food. I also enjoyed the passion that everyone had for the food and service. From the host to the bartender, waitstaff... everyone was passionate about the food they were serving and the service they provided. Highly recommend.

    Glad we had reservations, line was out the door at 1:30 pm on a Sunday. Upscale comfort food, generous but not too big portions. We looked at other people's food as it went by and it all looked really good. Saw several items on the menu that I'm looking forward to trying. I'm planning to go back with co-workers for a birthday lunch.

    Shared a plate of Poutine with red wine braised beef which was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend then ordered the tagliatelle with mushrooms, nettle pesto and duck egg - also very delicious, the egg was poached to the point and the nettles weren't overpowering. I was disappointed with my choice though - the smoked pork shank which came with a sweet potato salad and mustard demi. The pork shank was too cold already which makes it hard to cut off the meat, it wasn't exactly falling off the bone either. I am from Bavaria so I know pork shanks. The sweet potatos were undercooked and bland. But the bread pudding was excellent again and the beer selection was, too. Service was good overall but I wasn't asked once whether the food was fine.

    I've been to Local 360 three or four times over the past few years and have never been very satisfied with my meal experience. Just this last weekend my wife and I went for breakfast/lunch and she had a bowl of the chicken dumpling soup and I had the chicken fried steak. Her soup consisted mostly of a very large piece of chicken skin. The chicken skin's existence in the soup was gross. Maybe we should have told the waiter, but we don't really do that, we'd just rather not return again. My chicken fried steak, while I liked the coating, the meat was sinewy chewiness. Also, they charge for ice tea refills and didn't refill my coffee. I'd like to like this restaurant, but it feels like they need better direction and consistency.

    Wow, with all the beautiful fruits and veg available in the Northwest our waitress actually told us they had no tomatoes because they weren't in season....really? yet their vegetable pot pie had green beans...which are not in season either...? There were 3 unoriginal vegetarian options: mac n cheese, grilled cheese and the pot pie, the pot pie's crust was a hard disk of puff pastry that never rose in the oven, we got to listen to an entire album of the rolling stones over brunch, our napkins were frayed and old... Our waitress was lovely and so were the cocktails...we'd go back for drinks.

    We visited this restaurant because we enjoy the concept of eating well and locally. We made reservations and were placed in the back of the restaurant next to a distracting window looking into the fridge. Basically, we had dinner next to your 30 gallons of milk. The service was slow at best. The food arrived even slower. The food was good, but didn't stand out from other good restaurants in the area. Faster service, getting rid of the table by the fridge, and addressing everyone at the table when offering samples of drinks (the server asked my date what he wanted, offered a sample, and then left without addressing me) would all improve the dining experience.

    Had close friends and family visiting from out of town - they are all food folk - down to the 11 yr old! Wanted to take them somewhere fun for the younger crows and yet unique to Seattle. Local 360 never disappoints. From the moment our waiter appeared he was fun and knowledgeable. We ended up ordering WAY too much food just so we could try a little bit of most of the menu. The pork shank fell off the bone and was tender, flavorful and gone in a flash. The mussels were lovely and juicy and yummy. All the veggie sides were excellent - tasty and perfectly cooked, not overdone. So much food on the table and I'm leaving out several specifics but all were fantastic. Large portions, good service - everyone enjoyed the entire experience1

    Dined on 3/30/2014
    Loved this place for a Sunday brunch, just the two of us. I can see where you'd need a rez for a larger group. Cool, northwest-y ambiance (casual, but with that reclaimed-wood-sustainable factor). Not super fast service, but it's all worth the wait. I really loved the biscuits and gravy--tall, crispy-on-the-outside biscuits were delicious ,, although I could only eat one, they were so huge. The gravy was delicious, but spicy--my hubby said he would not have enjoyed it (he would've been expecting a more traditional take). He did enjoy his corned beef hash, however, served in a cast iron skillet, with chucks (not tiny pieces) of savory corned beef, onion, and potato. Loved the Swedish Snapper--a bloody mary version with dill and aquavit.

    We went here for Sunday brunch. We wanted to like it as we appreciate the concept, but sadly were disappointed. I have never had bad Stumptown coffee. I did here. It tasted burnt and old. The food was okay, but nothing really stood out and there are better brunch places. Hostess did not seem particularly thrilled to be there, but our waiter was great. Regardless, we won't be back.
