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.

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.

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

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!

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

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

Thank You

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!

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.

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.

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.
