Tasty and interesting food. We had a couple of the daily specials; the burrata ravioli was lovely. Fun atmosphere, though slightly louder than we like. Service was attentive.

Great food , service is okay but they don’t speak great English lastly it is very tight we felt like we were on a date with the table next to us. However it is hard to find a large menu of Mediterranean styled Israeli food !

I was disappointed with the stuffed grape leaves. They were too hot to eat when they arrived, and were otherwise flavorless. I've had better from a can. The squash-filled ravioli was also only so-so, at best.

This was a terrible experience. I walked in with 2 friends for our reservation and there was 2 people working the entire restaurant. It was busy and tables were not being cleared, there were screaming kids and the 2 employees couldn’t keep up. They didn’t even acknowledge us. We then thought we would just wait at the bar and watch this craziness with hopes of sitting down soon, and then these two girls next to us got their food and they said “this is not what we ordered”. The employee wanted to cry. My friends and I proceeded to leave and not even bother with attempting to sit down.

Came together for a catch up dinner with a girlfriend and came at a perfect time! Restaurant was not overly noisy so we could actually hear each other speaking. The food was delicious and would definitely recommend this place and come back another time perhaps on a date night. It’s got a great intimate vibe.

Have been their twice ow and both times have been great. They seated us soon after we arrived at a niçe large table,drinks came promptly. The hummus was very good, and everyone enjoyed their meals. Stayed for about 2 hours and never felt rushed to leave. Meals are priced according to New York city prices. Will return

The lunch bowls were both fantastic. Squash ravioli left a bit to be desired... The sauce was more like a broth or soup, and was pretty bland. Decor is unique and interesting. Waiter was friendly and attentive but not hovering. Will likely return!

Local92 is our favorite! Food and environment never disappoint. Service was just a little slow this time, and we were not aware of the included gratuity on a party of only 5 people, so we tipped 20% on top of an already included 20%.

Local 92 was perfect for a intimate birthday celebration. Atmosphere was cozy and chic, restaurant staff were professional and friendly, food was very tasty and lots of options and drinks cocktails were well prepared. I look forward to returning especially to check out the outdoor space in warmer weather.

So disappointed. No bottled waters available, only NYC tap (awful). Burger not cooked to MR, delivered MW. Crappy salmon filet over cooked, too. Very long time to order and longer to be served.
NEVER AGAIN, and I tell my 4500 friends too!
Shame on you Local 92.

We ate dinner at David's Cafe on a snowy night, and there was enough activity for the restaurant to feel lively. Though we had a little trouble (quickly corrected) with one order, we were very satisfied with the food. The place is not fancy, but it has some nice touches. Everything worked out more than adequately.
