Local Bistro + Bar
We stopped in here to have a birthday dinner for my husband last minute. We got in before the rush and had an outstanding dinner. My husband had a pizza which was huge, think crust and very tasty. I had the seabass which needed a little more seasoning but was still very good. We both had salads, Caesar and a garden which were huge for side salads. I would ask for the dressing on the side, they put a little too much on the salads. We would definitely return!
If you are disturbed by high noise levels, you will want to eat here either early or late and sit on the perimeter in one of the cushioned seats. The food is very good as is the friendly, timely service.
Nice menu selection, our food was excellent. Great service, nice comfortable atmosphere.
Pizza was super! Cooked the way you like it -
A long time customer of Local Bistro, we brought some friends who had not been here before. , we had a table of 6 out on the patio , and unfortunatel,y it took over an hour for our food to be served. Our server was great and friendly and apologetic as was Taylor, but if we were new customers we probably would not have come back. Not sure what was going on that day, but the kitchen was off it's mark. Food was good and mgmt sent out several deserts to 'make up' for issue.
Saturday , brunch in their patio is wonderful!
Everything was very good
Always a good dinning experience. Nice menu at moderate pricing with good service.
Food and service were excellent. On a side note, access to restrooms was very awkward.
Such a fun place for brunch! Love the bottomless mimosas! Will definitely be going again.
When our bill was given to us we stayed to enjoy the company and our server never came back to see if we needed anything. It was a struggle to get anything more from her. She picked up our tabs and walked away. She brought our bill before we were ready for it
Good restaurant and the vibe is very good. I enjoyed sitting at the bar with the TV's, eating and watching a football game.
Four of us went to dinner and we each had something different and everyone thought it was outstanding food! Service was excellent and prices were very reasonable. The only thing we didn’t care for was the noise level. We can hardly wait to go back!
Way too noisy inside. Patio was better and comfortable with heaters.
New Years Eve - they sat us between two doors that led to the outside and it was rather brisk. Because the doors were constantly being opened, our food got cold rather quickly.
They were trying to move the tables along quickly in order to accommodate the people coming in. Our original waitress was upset because we asked to be seated elsewhere and then passed us on to another waitress who was very nice.
All in All, we will not be going bac
Love this restaurant! Great food with a casual vibe. Great service with good knowledge on wines!
Mathew was a fabulous server
So were his “helpers”
You should also know not to put babies near kitchen doors
Not safe and no need to hide them
Especially at 5:00pm
Dinners were delicious
Always enjoy dining at the Local Bistro
Fantastic food and service!! We were surprised by a free dessert too!
Nice casual chic restaurant, good food, good service, with well stocked wine selection and professionally designed decor. I recommend for dinner or brunch.
The risotto topped with filet (as a special) was OFF THE CHARTS
Delicious food & fabulous service!
This was our first time, but not our last (!!) at Local Bistro. Nice ambiance, lovely decor and a very nice menu. Our server, Ashley, was just adorable, accommodating and helpful. We’ll be back!
Service was very slow. And we gave up on a couple things we asked for.
KC was a great waiter... aside from appetizers not showing up in a timely fashion all went pretty well
Was decent when they first opened then quality went down over time. Used to get the strip steak that included sides and sauces for the steak which was ok but that dish was $34.00. Last time we went back steak was still $34 but everything was ala cart hence that same meal would now be around $45 for a mediocre steak. Also the presentation changed, before steak served on a hot skillet now it just comes out on a plate. My wife just had an appetizer and whole meal came to over $70. Sorry, that food is not worth it, it’s fair at best. I suspect that restaurant will not be around much longer which is too bad since there are very few restaurants in north Scottsdale.
Great with exception even with reservation and many empty tables we had to stand and wait for 15 min because there were not enough menus. Very young hostesses.
Always delicious and fun! Great cocktails, wine, and people watching. All food is yummy and the service is thoughtful.
The food at this restaurant is always consistent. Unfortunately, the service on this visit left a little to be desired. Three requests for a side order from three different employees, no drink refills. This is not typical for this restaurant. Perhaps it was an off night. It’s still a great place overall.
We ate outside on their covered patio which is like a grotto—cozy, with heaters and quieter than inside. The food and service were outstanding. The four of us each ordered different things and loved them all.
Always a good place to meetup; good food, wine, service, and atmosphere
Outstanding service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟. Lizette is beyond the best server in Scottsdale. Food always top notch. We ate inside due to possible rain and I did not realize how loud it was. Maybe because it was hard to hear our party of 7 due to the noise level. All in all it was a great meal with good friends. We will be back time & time again. Thank you.
Always reliable excellent food! Love it!
Outstanding in every way: food, drinks, service, and very reasonable pricing on menu!! I bought a gift card to give to friends for their first visit.
SLOW SERVICE - FOOD WAS GOOD - WAIT PERSON DID NOT HAVE A GREAT ATTITUDE.
Seriously, the best!
Excellent meal as always, enjoyed the skillet pasta with sausage and two margherita pizzas and a mule. The server took care of wrapping up leftovers with individual containers and a bag. Thank you. Will definitely return!
Love Local Bistro and frequent it often!
You want to charge like a steak 44 your not in there league Run out of bread and take out bags not acceptable for your prices .
Wonderful place.. great service .. great menu!
Food not as good as it usually is
