Local Bistro + Bar
My brother-in-law and his friend were in town and wanted to go to brunch. We looked up branches in north Scottsdale and local bistro was listed. We looked at the menu it was quite nice and we were not disappointed. Food was fresh service was good ambience was very nice.
first time here, and very impressed. Great spot for lunch, although some of the items seemed a little pricy for a lunch menu. Not too worry, many solid selections for a decent price, and the service was top notch!
Great food and amazing service.
We love this restaurant, the waiter wasn’t good and had an attitude. Besides that this place is a go to
Our waiter was outstanding for our tAble of 7.
The last 3 times I have been there the service is poor. You can sit at the table for 20 minutes before anyone even comes over to ask if you want water.
Local Bistro never disappoints. Great selection of food options and superbly prepared.
Was really loud so hard to have meaningful dialog. The cauliflower rice was amazing but my colleague wasn't impressed with the prosciutto pizza.
was lloking for some French Onion Soup and it was just fabulous. The Service was friendly , timely and very attentive to our needs. The meal was also great
The noise level was higher than we like, making it hard to share a conversation. Next time we'll try the patio, which looked quite inviting. I don't like a patio "in the parking lot" but they've done a nice job of camouflaging that. The food was excellent and the wine list very nice.
We made a reservation for Saturday night. Our waitress was Alina, all I can say is Awesome!! I had the Margarita pizza, the best I have had in a long time.
We liked it so much when a friend ask us to dinner on Sunday we wanted to go to the same place. Sunday night our waiter was Matthew! He was so tuned into our needs. Actually, he was above and beyond. I had the pasta! I can't wait to eat the leftovers. Brandon, the manager was nice to stop by and see how we were doing!! We'll be back.
I haven’t been there in awhile and I’m glad I went back. The food was awesome and they have a great wine selection.
Salmon Avocado Toast is my new favorite food! The grilled salmon was purported to be excellent! This is my boss's favorite place to take people to lunch and now I know why!
It’s consistently great food
The noise level is very loud when it’s crowded
Sit outside is a much better option
A favorite for lunch...
Attentive service and excellent food
Service was slow, it took 10 min after we sat and after I asked for a server that we had someone come to the table!
Great food and very good service. The bar noise was not to bad.
We always enjoy Local Bistro and find the food and service to be consistently excellent. Father's Day brunch was no exception. It was lovely sitting outside on the patio. My husband and daughter had different variations of french toast and I had the pineapple upside down pancake. Everything was outstanding and the Mimosas weren't bad either.
Our server was so knowledgable and sunny. 2 of the 5 of us were celiacs and she was able to help us with great modifications to our meals. Great menu, great service!
Bad experience at Local Bistro, usually reliable and consistent, but not last night! Very poor, slow service in spite of waiter being personable but not particularly efficient. Long long waits for drinks, order taking and forever for entrees to arrive.Food was sub par for the usual “go to” items on menu, pasta saturated with sauce and chicken just average.
The service and food were horrible
Great spot in every way. Looking forward to our next visit there.
The food is always good here but they changed the calamari and it just isn’t good. The seafood with black linguini was delicious. The green beans and eggplant parmigiana was excellent. The skirt steak with sauce was moderate. Stick with the pasta. If you like eggplant try the barrata appetizer.
This was our first visit to Local Bistro at a recommendation of a friend. We enjoyed it, however, the only downside was it took a long time (25+ minutes to get our appetizer). After that, it took 35-40 minutes to get our entrees. It just seemed like it took unusually long to get our food. Service was good and the food was good. Just didn't enjoy being there for almost an hour and a half. Would go back and give it another try. Thinking maybe it was just an off night for them.
Very good overall
There were swarms of bugs in the indoor dining room fly around our heads. Food was great as usual but they had a bad night with bugs☹️
they opened the doors to the outdoor patio too early which resulted in a not so pleasant experience as it really heated up. Made the last part of our meal very uncomfortable.
ALways a pleasure. Our waiter gave us space and time to have our business conversation. Greatly appreciated. Food was tasty and service was timely. Thanks.
A true favorite! Best food in Scottsdale, and incredible service as well.
This was our first time but definitely won’t be our last!
Very nice evening, excellent food and a great setting. The price was reasonable for the quality of the food. Our server was a little bit robotic and disinterested but overall a good experience.
Local Bistro has never let us down. Great food and fantastic service. We have had Casey for a couple of times. One of the best servers in the Valley.
Our server Amanda was so kind and friendly and had some great suggestions! Get the drunk bread...HOLY MOLY! Mike the manager stopped by our table and truly made us feel welcome. It was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time. An absolutely MUST see!! Thank you for such an incredible evening.
Amanda was amazing, great service and food
The Happy Hour Bar seems to take over the whole atmosphere of the restaurant. Way too loud!
We have been here before and had a great experience, so we came back for Mother’s Day. Several things were wrong - we walked in 10 min early and hostess says they’d seat us closer to our reservation time even though there were many open tables. Bar tender was difficult to flag down - it wasn’t busy. After sitting ten min ( abs discovering glass on the floor under my seat) our waitress took our order and then brought drinks, we had to ask for bread and when it came we had to ask for utensils. When our food came 2 of the plates were missing the sauce. After check came, waitress disappeared for around 15 min, and we just wanted to pay and leave. Food was good but such poor service and attention to detail. Disappointing on Mother’s Day.
Very nice place, vibrant bar scene, patio seating.
Service was good & food outstanding. Highly recommend!!
I gave a 5 star review because we love Local Bistro, however - we came for a birthday brunch on Saturday at 11:15. On open table, it says that brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 3pm. When we arrived, we were given their regular menu and when we asked for the brunch menu, we were told they only do brunch on Sunday. We ended up leaving because the birthday girl wanted brunch. Please correct this information so there is no more confusion! ❤️
Went for Saturday brunch. When we got there, we were informed that they were not serving brunch today. We were the first to arrive, but many were getting their food and we were still waiting. When I finally asked the waiter why we had not been served yet, he admitted that he had screwed up our order, but food would be coming soon. I felt that he should have told us before we had to ask. Finally my sandwich had so much horseradish/mustard , it was close to uneatable.
