Solid dinner. No acknowledgement of birthday occasion despite letting them know ahead of time. Good food but very pricey. Overall a good night out.

Food and service were very good. Everyone in our group was served at the same time and the food was at the right temperature.
Atmosphere was welcoming and warm. Prices were reasonable. Very good wine selection.
The noise level was low enough that we were able to hear one another easily.

My wife's any my first dinner out in Nashua after moving here from NY was a great success. MT''s Local was an excellent choice with great food and drink. Lively atmosphere and great service to boot. Lots of well deserved positive online reviews led us here and we enjoyed ourselves.

Overall I really liked our first experience. The deviled eggs appetizer was definitely the highlight of the meal. Our server was very attentive. It took quite a bit of time for our entrees to be served; it wasn’t due to the server though I think the kitchen got a little backed up with orders although I saw a few empty tables in my area. My boyfriend was a little underwhelmed by his entree (haddock) but I enjoyed my meatloaf. I would like to give it another try in the future.

We just recently moved back to Nashua and was very pleased to find Michael Timothy’s still here.
Our food was delicious and our waitress, Racquel, suberb. We try to go at least twice a month and have never been disappointed. Tom & Jackie O’Hare

Relaxed dining in spite of the fact that it was busy, we never felt rushed and the service was refreshingly very poised and professional compared to other restaurants where we dined locally.

Great food, well prepared and well presented in an intimate, cozy atmosphere. Loved the creative preparations and the emphasis on local products where available. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. We've been going here since it was Michael Timothy's and hadn't been back in some time since we moved out of the area. Very happy to say that with all the changes, they haven't missed a step! Looking forward to our next visit.

We all enjoyed our meals and our waitress was very pleasant and efficient. We waited a while for. Our drinks, but the restaurant was very busy. It is not a place to go to enjoy a quiet conversation but few restraints are on a Saturday evening. We have never been disappointed with our food on any of our visits.

We've been here several times. We're never disappointed when we visit. Food and service are wonderful. It can be a bit loud, but you have to know that and be ready for it when you go. Very warm and welcoming. Will continue to be a frequent visitor.

We come back every October to celebrate our anniversary specifically for the Octoberfest dinner. As far as I know there are no German restaurants in the area and MT's does a fantastic job with this meal. They only do it for 2 weeks but it is worth the trek. The wine selection is great as are the cocktails. The autumn sangria is quite unique and delicious. MT's deserts are fantastic. So much so that it is the only time I will have desert for a meal.

MTs is Nashua's best restaurant. The food is always good and the service is outstanding. We've been eating here four or five times a year for many years, it's our go-to place when we go to Symphony NH.

We enjoyed our most recent dinner at MT's, and we usually do enjoy it. However, the front of house management can be a mixed bag, and that's what we got last night. We were initially seated next to a very loud table, and didn't get the most gracious response when we asked to move. They seemed to think that we were the nuisance, not the very loud (and presumably very drunk) people we had been placed next to. They did move us in the end, but let us know it was inconvenient. Too bad, because our food was great, and so was our server (thanks, Stephen). We would go more often if it were not for this kind of thing.

One of our favorite places however this time, had it been our 1st, may have the last.

I specially asked for seating on the Right side as I know the center section is too loud. Needless to say they couldn’t accommodate my request yet I reserved well in advance.

The waiter seemed to have the bar area and then got our table and service lacked.

Positive was the food which is always 4 star. The person at reservation desk did comp a couple drinks which was nice but the evening I hoped for wasn’t.

As always at Michael Buckley's restaurants, dinner was delicious. Part of the reason I chose to go there for a celebration was that I love the Mediterranean salad. I hadn't had it for a while so I am not sure if it is different from the last time I had it or not, but it could have used more than one piece of artichoke, and more than one piece of zucchini, and could do without the couscous. The next time I will ask to not have that on it. Obviously some people like it but to me, it was added carbs that I did not want or need.
I had the Bistro Tournedos for my entree -- very yummy. I wouldn't change a thing.
My husband started with the French onion soup and said it was one of the best he has had, and he pretty much always orders it so that's saying a lot. He ordered the beef stew which was a special for his entree. It was actually an appetizer size which he knew ahead of time. He didn't care for it because it had some seasoning in it that he didn't like. That was a personal preference though. I tasted it and thought it was very good.
As always, the restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere.

This is one of our favorite places in downtown Nashua. The food is very good. I had the scallop pasta and my husband had the rack of lamb. Both were excellent. We’ve had other very tasty dishes here before and appreciate the changes to the menu. The last few times we’ve gone it seems to take a while to get your food and large gaps between courses. We don’t mind much as we are not in a rush but something to consider if you are looking for a faster serve.

Food as always was wonderful. We dine at MTs several times per month and the staff is usually great; however, not this time. She was not personable at all, she never mentioned the specials (we had to go inside to find out), didn't bring a wine glass for my wine flight for several minutes, we had to ask for bread several times, etc. As we sat there we saw all the other wait staff interacting with their tables but ours did not.

i will start by saying this is my favorite restaurant. the meals of late have been inconsistent. I had the scallop with black pepper pasta and the scallops were not seared on both sides. it was an inconsistent dish; the ham and peas were one dish and the scallops another; they didn't go together and were under seasoned (i actually used salt, which i never do). the pork belly waffles were excellent. also the server was very pleasant, but not very attentive. we had to ask for bread and he never came back for a wine order with the dinner.
