The two paellas we had were both excellent and the service was great.
We had a wonderful meal on New Year's Eve and Local 188. Patates Bravas, gnocci and goat cheese gratin were all delicious. Mushroom risotto was tasty but a little heavy on the onions. Service was over the top good. Thanks for a great New Year's meal.
I have been here quite a few times. I like the open kitchen, the lighting, and location. The food was great, especially the risotto! The focaccia bread is always my fav here. My suggestion would be to consider broadening the appeal of the menu to include 1-2 healthy options, and a vegan option (considering that this is a total foodie town). I also missed the flatbread app that used to be on the menu. Keep up the good work!
Fantastic, creative food. Always friendly staff. Loved the New Years' Amuse Bouche!
Exceptional meal. Wait staff was perfect - very attentive yet not intrusive. One of my better dining experiences for some time.
Tapas was a bit pricey and options somewhat limited, but the food and cocktails were delicious. Service and ambiance were perfect as well. Thank you... We will return!
We have been before and we looked forward to going back. Great for a night with the family. Cocktails were good. Our server was great. The food was delicious.
Been to Local 188 many times, but this was the first time for a business meeting where we shared a few small plates versus getting a full meal. The plates all came out at different times which worked well since we were picking and sharing. The Hummus and flatbread was great -- the chicken skewers were moist and flavorful, with a nice sauce, and the roasted beet salad was perfectly dressed. On a regular visit i usually go for the paella, but sharing small plates worked great too... For the first hour our server was great about letting us just chat and take our time with our drinks and plates but during the second hour she kept asking if we were through but we weren't! Like 3 times she asked if we were done but we were still picking. A minor distraction only. Always a good meal at Local 188.
Had a great time and a great meal. The tapas we had were delightful and the paella was delicious. Extensive wine list. Tried a couple of local beers we hadn’t try tasted. Would definitely go back.
We've been fans of Local 188 for many years. The food is authentic Spanish cuisine with New England additions. The flavors are always excellent and this latest visit lived up to our previous experiences. We were on our way to an event nearby and our server was very helpful in getting our order to us in plenty of time to make the show.
