We made a reservation, was sat in a small cramped corner, and no one waited on us for 30 minutes. When someone finally saw us we had to ask for plates, silverware, water, etc.

The food at Local 149 was great as always, however, the service was very poor. It seemed like we had multiple servers which caused our drink orders to get lost and it took a very long time to put in orders in general.

We usually love the service but not this time. We were one of the first tables to sit w 2 kids and got our food last. We had to ask for several things.

We come here all the time, but tonight they wouldn’t honor our reservation. We didn’t receive any service, and were turned away at the door. The restaurant overbooked, and that’s on them. Super disappointed.

Our reservation was for 7:15 and we showed up at 7:21. It’s the summer and the restaurant wasn’t even full to capacity. The host, who I was later told was a manager immediately just said to us “you’re late” with an attitude. That really rubbed us the wrong way considering we were only 6 minutes late. They should be happy we are supporting their business during times when other restaurants have had to close their doors for good.

Really terrible service. Took a half an hour for the waiter to bring us water let alone our appetizers and glasses of wine. 2 tables around us asked for items to be taken off their bills because of the terrible service received.

The host seemed confused about our reservations, blond bartender was the surliest, least friendly bartender I've ever come across. Our waitress (young, perky brunette) on the other hand was super friendly. Food was just OK, far more rich and heavy than what I am used to.

Host is unprofessional and rude. Used to love coming to this place because the food is awesome and so is the staff but the host turns away business during COVID and treats you incredibly poorly.

They were short staffed on a Holiday and no one came to our table after 20 mins. We decided to take the open seats at the bar to get service. Although the beginning of the dinner was less than ideal, we really appreciated that the manager asked the bartender to give us a free round and apps for free off the bill. We weren’t going to say anything about the initial bad service so it said a lot that they took notice and were accommodating!

What a great neighborhood joint for the area! It is way east in South Boston, far from the restaurant row of E great vegetarian options for my daughter and lots of creative food options overall. My cola braised short rib was perfect comfort food for a cold night with loads of light pillowy gnocchi in a garlic cream sauce, with a bit of fresh spinach to make you feel at least a little virtuous :-) That and a nice big glass of red wine had me really happy, and my daughters roasted mushroom and burrata pasta was amazing as well. We will definitely be back!
