Local Bistro + Bar
padrn peppers, lemon conserva, calabrian chili aioli
Our group ate on the patio which was quite nicel Décor is vey good and there is a large bar area. This is a local neighborhood find we wish we had tried much sooner. Food was good, menu has some different items that appeal to an upscale population. We will come back.
Sat on the patio on a lovely day and had a good brunch experience with my family. Loved the duo playing live music inside. The food and bottomless mimosas were very good. Highly recommend.
Another great birthday dinner celebration with great service from Q .
I love Local Bistro but the food was not good this time. Marginal shrimp appetizer, dry overcooked pizza.. just not good.
I always love Local Bistro. The food is excellent, reliable, reasonably priced and the service is always excellent. It has a fun and pretty ambiance...especially on the patio where it is less noisy and has a more intimate feel. We will always go back for more!
Great local establishment. Great food and brunch with the live music is great!
Sea scallops had no sear/crust on them whatsoever, so they looked like pale dumplings or scallops anyone could make at home with no culinary skill. The bar was out of the ice spheres used to make the drink I ordered. Overall, this was a disappointing experience.
We were recently in Scottsdale and ate here twice. The food was excellent. A bit loud inside but outside is great. When our check came there was a charged added (don't remember the wording). When we questioned it we were told it was on the menu (it was in small print at the bottom) and it is 2.5% due to the minimum wage going up. Corporate decided to add the charge instead of changing the food prices. From what we understand, very few restaurants are handling the wage change this way.
Lissette was an awesome server! Thanks so much. And we always love seeing Brandon H!!!! Thanks so much.
We love this place. Our waitress Terrie was so attentive and friendly. She made the experience better. The food is great. The ambiance is lovely.
Always great food and service here. Love the decor and ambiance. You will never be disappointed eating here!!
Meeting friends for lunch; promptly greeted by Christine and seated on patio; Pat was our server; very welcoming, pleasant he gave us great tips for menu selection and was very attentive, checking in, refilling water glasses, etc. without being intrusive. Food - as always - was delicious. Out table had the tuna tartare OMG,, the beef carpaccio perfectly excited and plated, and the pizza, also great. Such a pleasant afternoon, ew went back for dinner!
Great food but poor service. Took friends there from out of town. After being seated we had to ask twice for water and then was told the kitchen was backed up. Took too long.
We asked to be seated in a quieter area and they accommodated us.
Excellent service. Very pleasant evening but we invited our friends to join us for this fabulous onion soup that we enjoyed a month or so ago for lunch that was so huge and totally covered the whole bowl with melted cheese. The soup we had was very good but has ordinary cheese & wasn't as spectacular a presentation.
We enjoy every time. However this time, Server wasn’t at her best for whatever reason. Main took longer than normal due to pizza being burnt I apparently. The second attempt wasn’t great.
Kind enough to remove it from the bill. We still enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
Have had dinner here many times and always good, but this was my first time having brunch. What a great brunch menu! Something for everyone including bottomless mimosas and live music. Will definitely be back for brunch
I love this place, they always accommodate!
Love Local Bistro. The food is wonderful and service too. Very reliable though a bit noisy. Wouldn’t stop me from coming back. The outdoor patio is best!
One of my favorite places.
Food and service consistently excellent.
Patio is a great spot this time of year
Everything was great except service this is the third time it was very slow to get water and drinks
It like they are under staffed to bad
A little loud inside but the patio is great!
Had guests for brunch on Sunday.Food was very good but came out one plate at a time. Energetic means every table has to talk louder than its neighbor. Can get very noisy. Been going since opening, just bringing ear plugs.
Local Bistro food was excellent We had angel hair pomodoro and bottle of old world Chianti Classico.
Must try is the Tiramisu desert, different but very good.
Chicken Parmigiana was really good and great service. We also started out with drink at bar for happy hour. Can’t beat the half price speciality drinks and bartender was great. Lived here for three years and finally made it here and will be back !!!
Very good Valantine dinner special 4 courses all very good
Had a wonderful Valentines dinner with my husband. Our waitress was very efficient and attentive. The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent, done to perfection . A real neighborhood gem.
Best Filet in Phoenix!!!!
Local is one of our go to places. Great food and service. Never disappoints.
The outdoor patio is a great place to eat. Less noise
Amazing food, a bit noisy during happy hour but a very nice ambience overall!
Great cocktails, delicious food, fantastic wait staff. We will be back for sure!!!
Good help is hard to find nowadays. I could always count on Local Bistro for great food and ambiance, and usually good service, since we would request specific servers when we went there. But Jonathan is gone now and our newbie was far from good. He didn't know what "vintage" referred to in the wine we ordered and had difficulty opening it. We stated we are in no hurry and asked for slow casual service ... our apps and salad came together!. And later he never came back to ask me if I wanted fresh grated Parm on the Bolognese. In prior years, we would get asked for which fruit we desired in our water... not any more.
Things have changed but still a great place... they just need to train their servers better..
Service was slow and two items never arrived
Great waiter.. She was very positive and pleasant
LB is my favorite however my wife’s chicken was very salty and I hate to complain but service was terrible. Had to ask for water, bread, he never asked if we wanted another drink or how is our food .Must have slept during his training
Food and service were great!
Nice place for a quiet lunch.
It was extremely loud inside so we sat outside. Service was really good but the kitchen was way too slow. It took forever to get food. Beer menu hadn’t been updated so 2 choices were not available. The 3rd choice was finally available. Food was delicious except my husband’s burger was more bun than meat.
I have always loved Local Bistro for dinner. But both times that I’ve been there for Sunday brunch has been disappointing. I understand the desire for music, but it’s too loud to have a conversation. I feel like I have to yell at the person sitting next to me and end up with a headache by the time we leave.
The food was just okay. I ordered a salad and asked for the bacon to be left off. Clearly bacon was accidentally put on the salad and then removed because there were small amounts of bacon through out the salad. The wait staff never returned to see if our meals were okay. My husband’s fry’s were cold.
Also, the endless mimosas were endless after the first few glasses because no one ever returned to fill them up!
If you want a great Sunday experience, this place isn’t on my list.
