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.

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.

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.

Unfortunately, this business seems to have gone downhill. For the price, service and food is subpar. In addition to servers repeatedly bringing us other diners’ food, the chicken breast in our salads were over cooked and really dry, the end pieces were inedible. For the price, you can do much better elsewhere.

Awesome food and ambiance. My only disappointment is that every time I visit, I want my favorite pizza so badly that I am unable to venture out to other awesome dishes on the menu. My wife has the same issue as she consistently makes a meal out of the Drunk Bread with added prosciutto

They dropped the ball on an Anniversary surprise for our daughter and son in law. They also didn’t tell us they were part of restaurant week. When we told the general manager he just blew it off. Very disappointed !! Food was fine.

We get to enjoy Local on a regular basis, but tonight they seemed to up their game. Everyone loved their meal, I had the Big Eye Tuna, it was outstanding. Our server, I believe his name was Ronaldo, was perfect. Can’t wait to go back for more.

The food here is good, but service has never been consistent. This visit was very bad. Our server had a hard time prioritizing, so we ended up constantly looking for him. Our order consisted of a bottle of wine, 1 appetizer, a side salad and tuna tartare and a pizza. The appetizer came out in a reasonable amount of time, but we waited a very long time for the tuna & pizza. The pizza doesn't cook that long and the tuna isn't cooked at all, so I don't know why the delay. After finally getting our food and eating it, we were ready to go and our server was everywhere but at our table. When we finally flagged him down and ask for our leftovers boxed and the check, he kept waiting on other tables and took care of us last. We waited a half hour to finally pay the bill and leave. We arrived at 6:05 and walked out the door at 7:45. The place was not even at full capacity either. Now I remember why we haven't been here for over a year. So if you want decent food and have a lot of time on your hands, then this place is for you.

This restaurant has the most fantastic food. The bouillabaisse on Friday nights is better than any we had in France! But, honestly, everything on the menu - including the gluten free options - is terrific!

Wonderful food and good variety to pick from. The seafood pasta with squid-ink black pasta was excellent. I would licked the sauce off the plate if no one was watching! Wait staff is very helpful and attentive (thank you Brooklin). It’s a tad on the noisy side, so turn your hearing aids up. One wall has a chock board with the wine specials. Makes sure you take note before ordering.
