The food is always delicious and the service is very warm and attentive!
Our favorite family dinner place. Great staff, food, and drinks!
I will preface this review by saying I have been to this restaurant before, but my last visit was at least 3 years ago. This past visit was one of the WORST dining experiences I ever had. The other couple arrived prior to us and I mentioned to the server I had a reservation for four and provided details but she seemed not to hear me. Well, that inattentive, casual appointment continued throughout our stay. We arrived at 7:30 and ordered a few minutes later, but our food did NIT arrive until 9:10 PN, a full hundred minutes after we arrived. We called for the waitress now attending others but the noise level was sky high. Soon, she vanished and did not re appear until
I physically got up to search the restaurant to inquire about the delay. “ it’s a slow night in the kitchen,” she replied flatly and then returned with a plate of olives and cheese to placate us. When the entrees arrived at last, the duck, which we asked to prepare extra crispy, was not prepared as a whole duck at all but sliced. I am not sure why she didn’t tell the two of us ordering it it was not prepared in this manner and it may be best to select another entree. We soon discovered it was ice cold. I tried to flag her down. One frustrated guest ate his cold. When she arrived, she took it back while I waited yet another 10 minutes for her to return with it. My husband’s striped bass smothered in sauce and tasting bland. The real horror is when he discovered an olive pit from eaten olive. He was horrified. We tried to find the manager. I flagged down a gentleman at the front since the waitress was missing in action and non responsive. I told him if this vile food experience. Since he seemed almost comatose, I asked again to speak to the manager who he clarified was the owner. He replied he was busy in the back and not unavailable. We have defined it as our worst dining experience in years, and were horrified we subjected our friends to this experience. DON’T G9!
We love this restaurant and eat here often. The food is great and they will do anything to accomodate special requests that are often difficult since my husband has a garlic allergy. The service is always good and they have a wonderful outside patio for the good weather.
This is a reliable, upscale restaurant with a very nice interior and enjoyable outdoor dining in pleasant weather . The food is excellent, as is the service. It's my go-to place for a Sunday lunch or a celebratory occasion.
Renalto is great a Waiter and everyone is very nice
For the most part we had a good experience, but my scallops only came with a giant scoop of steamed greens and white beans. No side of pasta and I had to ask for some bread. Otherwise it would've been a mostly mushy textured meal.
Our server seemed to be knowledgeable and liked joking with my wife, but was all business with me...
Prices were definitely high for what we got, so not so great on the value ladder. Was the food good? Yes, it was good but I believe they could do better.
This is my favorite place to go. Food always amazing! And Vinnie, the owner, is always aiming to please. 5 stars!!
Very good food overall. Service was excellent. My pasta special, spinach papardelle with muscles and a large prawn in a saffron sauce didn't quite come together, and at $34 it was expensive. However, the other 3 pasta dishes served to my family were delicious. Good wine list. Would definately return.
food was fresh and delish
Excellent food, great service. Would definitely recommend
i was disappointed there was no brunch menu, so we had a rather delicious lunch. food was really really good. service was excellent until it was time for the check. then we had to track someone down to give it to us, and to take our money.
love this restaurant in my town. The food and service are great! Love seating outside in the nice weather.
As usual, both the service and food were incredible. Perfect for a cold winter’s night.
Delicious food and attentive service! Nothing suffered due to the restaurant being crowded for New Year’s Eve. Full menu and specials offered. Great experience.
Unfortunately, there was a party going on, so we were, not in the room that I prefer, but everything else was good
Food was pretty good, but the service was very bad. The waiters, especially the one who hosted us was very unprofessional. He brought a dish and almost threw it on the table, not asking who's dish it was.
Awesome as usual
As a first time diner here, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service.
We had Veal Piccata, Mushroom Risotto, and a Clam dish. All were excellent.
Definitely worth the trip. Excellent food and service
Must have been off night, but the overall experiance was medoccurre. We brought them a large party, and the synergy wasn't there.
on a nice nite the outdoor patio is gr-8.
food was good quality,and well presented.server was attentive.fair pricing
Food is consistently good. Baked clams are above average. Great service. Outdoor seating is a plus.
We have been eating here for the last 7 years. It is always consistent--high quality food, great service, the best outdoor dining in the area. Vinny, the owner, is a personable guy who always says hello, and makes sure his diners are happy. Also love Renato--we always request him as our waiter especially since he makes sure my gluten and dairy allergies are managed.
For a guaranteed excellent meal, in a beautiful restaurant, look no further. Cannot say enough positive things about Locale.
Overall we enjoyed the restaurant and service!! All four of our meals were fantastic! We will definitely be back!
Prices were a tad on the high side as were the bar prices!
Came here for my friends birthday! Sat out in the gardens! Great ambiance, delicious food and wonderful service! Oh, and I loved the vanilla apple martini!
Delicious dinner with perfect portion sizes. Can't wait to go back!
Service was terrible. We waited an hiurnand a half for our food. When we asked they said it was coming. We waited another 15 mins with no food. We asked for the manager. We were told he is busy. The restaurant was not busy that night. We ultimately left without eating.
We had been there for lunch and enjoyed it. Food was good. Very nice restaurant. We will give it another try. Anyone can have an off night. But the service and attitudes was not nice. No one even apologized for the delays.
Always have a good time at Locale! Great place fir all occasions dinner, lunch or brunch.
We had the good fortune to be able to sit outside on their patio. The evening was great the food was very good and the service too is very good. Be prepared though, this place is a bit on the pricier side.
Try one you will love it
Will be returning to this restaurant fir their excellent service delicious food and drink
Second time there. The Grilled octopus appetizer was really good. We weren't thrilled with our server. Very rushed for a restaurant that was 3/4 empty. Would probably go again and make sure someone else waited on our table.
We had a great time! It was my dads bday and it was a great experience from start to finish.Food was great and dessert slection awesome! I have to say the server ( I forgot his name unfortunately) was the best! Will def go back!!
Brought a group of ladies to celebrate a birthday. We ate outside. Lovely setting and requested table honored.
Great place. Very good service and ambiance.
Short Ribs the best I ever had
I will be back soon. Thank you
This was our first visit, will NOT be last. Everything, ambiance, wait service food was above expectations. We eat out often and Locale will now be on nour favorite list.
One of my favorite places. Food is always perfect, great service and friendly staff. On this occasion, had reserved a table on the patio, but an unexpected rain storm shutdown the patio. Staff quickly made adjustments and we didn't have to scrap our plans. Excellent!
We had a fabulous meal on the patio Friday night. Black linguini with seafood, zuppa de pesch, seared tuna, oysters , wonderful salads and don't forget the tartuffo!
The service started out slow . No plate for bread . Had to ask for butter several times . This should not be for this type of restaurant .
