Still my favorite Valley restaurant. Love to bring friends here so that they can experience Local Bistro
This is our go-to place when we want great food, be it steak or seafood or pasta or Sunday breakfast brunch! You just can't go wrong if you're looking for outstanding food and meticulous service.
Always good. The roasted chicken is outstanding. It’s a it noisy.
We have frequently dined here and has always been a pleasant experience. Food has been consistently good over the years
Local neighborhood gem for residents of North Scottsdale. Food is very good, diverse menu backed by solid cocktail and wine list. Good value, good service. Will definitely plan on going back.
The only negative to this restaurant is the noise level.
food real good service was real good - like it will go back
Food is always delicious! It’s our favorite local restaurant!
My sisters and I were visiting from out of town and stumble across the local bistro... The first time we dined there are service was impeccable as was the food. We enjoyed our meal so much but we decided to die in there a few days later. Both times amazing! We will definitely recommend to her friends and family and come back next time we’re in town.
Local Bistro's food is always consistently great! The service we received was exceptional and we love the patio with misters.
Great atmosphere with amazing food! Josh was one of the best waiters I’ve had! The chicken and artichoke dinner was amazing as was the drunken bread!!
The food was all delicious, as always. Local Bistro typically has a busy, upbeat vibe inside, but outdoor seating (with the cooling misters) was quiet and comfortable.
We really thought our server, Lynnae, did a terrific job.
We love this place but if you are eating inside it is way to loud to carry on a conversation.
Consistent food, great steak and pasta.
Variety in the menu . Inside is very noisy but great quiet seating outside
Local Bistro is one of our favorite restaurants. We always bring our out-of-town guests here. Great service, wonderful food, and a nice indoor or outdoor ambiance.
Very trendy. Very tasty. Perhaps a tad over salty - too much Worcestershire in the onion soup. Tad too much salt in the Pancetta /Pea pasta (pancetta is already so salty to begin with). Extremely noisy ambiance. Extremely attentive server (Jeff-excellent). Nice variety on menu.
Price // quality good
Good local spot. Interesting reasonable wine list. i would have liked more vegetarian options. That said the seafood was really good and I enjoyed the pasta.
I would have given them 5 overall and food because my food was all amazing. But my friend had the 16oz. NY Strip Steak and while it had good flavor, it was not tender. But in general food is great there!
Disappointing. Been here many times. Always loved the onion soup. This time it was loaded with salt. Rest of the meal was just fair, as well. Too bad!
I ALWAYS give 5 stars to my favorite restaurant in the Valley however Friday night we had a waitress who was fairly new and she was terrible. Very inattentive, poorly trained and really took away from the special occassion
Local Bistro is a rearguard stop for us and friends. Good food. Good service and great patio when weather permits!
1st visit. Loved the look, menu had wonderful new twists, tasted delicious, staff is excellent! Will be back often.
Everything was great! From the food to the service. Thank you Amanda for being so wonderful!
Very noisy. Hard to hold a conversation. Service was ok, not especially good. Food was ok but not great. V
Impromptu decision to go for dinner.
Did not want to stuff ourselves (3 of us), ended up eating family style starting with a signature appetizer, Drunken bread, followed by a beautiful bowl of Cioppino and arugula salad complemented by a bottle of Paso Robbles Cabernet Savignon, Tiramisu and the only initial disappointment of lukewarm Cappuccino, which upon notifying our server was immediately corrected.
All in all again an excellent meal, service and ambiance in our back yard.
This could be a great restaurant except that the noise inside is deafening. We were able to be seated outside on the patio to avoid the noise inside the restaurant, but with no mist system, it was sweltering. Plus, we had to ask a few times to have the outdoor piped music turned down. We're tired of restaurants where you can't enjoy the conversation.
On my initial visit to Local Bistro several years ago, I was really disappointed with service. However, it has become a favorite! Service is always really good and food consistently good.
We met for breakfast with family and friends. Everyone raved about the food and John our server did an outstanding job of making certain that all was top notch. My wife and I shared a Tuscan Omelette as the portions are quite large. It all made for a very pleasant morning.
Insufficient misters to eat outside comfotably.
Noise level unbearable to eat in.
Great dinner for my husband’s birthday!
Love Local Bistro! We went for brunch on Sunday and it was fantastic. Great options on the menu for everyone - short rib omelette was incredible.
Fantastic waiter and incredibly excellent food for dinner. Can’t wait to go back and try their brunch!
Josh our server was great!
It was our first time there and it was awesome ! Our waitress was awesome also very impressed. We will be back
Food is consistently delicious
Great place for creative yet approachable food and a terrific wine list at reasonable prices! Look at this place as an alternative to the pricier "steak and fish" houses fro better value and frankly more imaginative food dishes. The only negative is the noise level especially when there are kids.
Fabulous! Favorite dining spot. The food is amazing, service great and the atmosphere is upbeat but very comfortable.
Just moved into the area and this is becoming one of our favorites
Very energetic loud atmosphere but great food you don't want to miss
Great atmosphere inside or on the patio. Amazing food with lots of selections from comfort food to elegant cuisine. Service is decent but could be more consistent. Some visits it is phenominal and others average at best. Still our favorite restaurant.
