    Never disappoints. Started with the arugula radicchio salad with roasted veggie. Ricotta tortellini with mushrooms, Swiss chard & leeks & Peruvian meatballs over orzo. Everything was delicious! Nice selection of craft cocktails.

    Superb food, incredible cocktails, friendliest wait staff, and great ambiance (oh also superb playlist). It was a very last-minute reservation for our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have been happier if we had planned it months in advance--fabulous to have this quality locally. Gabby, the chefs, and the bartender at Local Wine & Kitchen, thanks for a memorable evening!

    We sat at the bar. We had reservations for a table but were unimpressed by the atmosphere. Plus we like the bar anyway. Servers were friendly and informative. The food was very good. It was the ambience that causes the overall three star rating. It was our first time there and it says the dress code is “smart casual” or something like that. The way it was worded , and some of the pictures had elevated my expectations. So, go wearing whatever you want, and expect a casual, tired place that has great good and good service. With that frame of mind I think you’ll have a four or a five star time.

    The menu is somewhat difficult to navigate, as not all items seem truly "shareable." Portion sizes range from tiny to good-sized entree. With a shortage of servers, the pre-dinner drinks did not arrive until we were eating, so we had no wine with the meal. Still, the lamb lollipops with roasted cauliflower were very good, as was the eggplant parmesan. Friends were not so keen on the gorgonzola-flavored mac & cheese. The server was apologetic for the delays and very personable.

    My wife and I agree on rating — was good but not great. We had the 3 cheese and 2 meat board and it was good and enough for two. The server was very good and brought extra bread upon request. BTW - they make their own breads and they are very good. I ordered a beer and it came in a. Title without a glass - would have expected a glass without request. Ambience is OK and bar seemed busy, especially considering that it was a rainy Tuesday evening. So, overall, worth a visit but not on the top of our area restaurants.

    Service was a little slow. The waiter waited until he came for our order to let us know that many items on the menu were unavailable. We would have appreciated knowing this when we sat down vs an hour later so we could properly make decisions on what to order. Food and drink were overall very good. I would go back but probably not on a weekend.

    Love this place. Been dining here for yearsm and not only have they made it through the pandemic, but they've done so while making the food at least as good as ever, if not better. I ordered the lamb lollipops, which were scrumptious; they came with tzatziki sauce in a pool underneath, which meant that I could spoon on as much or as little as I wanted. The roasted cauliflower that came with it was also superb! We got a cheese plate as an appetizer, and it was both generous and tasty. And my cocktail was also delicious. Thumbs up on this place. Will be happy to keep coming here regularly.

    Had an awesome time tonight at Local Wine and Kitchen for my wife’s birthday. Charcuterie board and wine flights to start. Risotto was fresh and light. Peruvian meatballs on a bed of orzo was to die for. They brought out a sea salt cheesecake for dessert with a candle in it for my wife. The best experience we could have asked for please do try them out ASAP.

    I want to applaud the quality and creativity of the menu items. It is always a challenge to find a restaurant that please both of us. As a vegan in the suburbs, I struggle. The arugula and radicchio salad was exceptional, as was the tofu dish with pesto and puréed carrots. And I also appreciated the variety of “zero proof” cocktails. Very considerate for non drinkers. This place is a hidden gem.
