The food and drinks were wonderful. We split the hummus and artichokes and then each had a main. I had the paella which was delicious and the smoky mezcal drink. The service was great and attentive. Would highly reccomend!

Food was good but not excellent - drinks were very expensive (they discontinued their bottomless brunch which is usually $14 and instead have $50 mimosa pitchers). They appeared to have forgotten about our reservation and pulled another table outside but it was not within the dividers of the outdoor dining space. The service,however, was very nice and quick.

Great food. Waiter was very pushy coming around every two minutes and then when we asked for a dessert menu, he told us that there was no coffee or dessert service that evening even though I saw another table get cake!

We were seated as soon as we arrived. There was good energy in the dining room, a little loud but could still have a conversation. I had a draft beer which was fine and my date ordered an old fashion that she was pleased with it. Aa for the food, we ordered the fried artichokes with a tangy saffron aioli. Loved the sauce! Thought artichokes could've been fried more, fried kale was flavorless and greasy. We loved the meatballs with the pepper & tomato fondue, great flavors all around. The best by far was the grilled calamari. Nicely charred, very tender, spicy chick pea salad bursting with great flavor. We had friendly swift service, noticed lights with kitchen strainers used as coverings. Cool idea! I look forward to returning and trying other dishes..

Heat was not working enough to sustain a pleasant dining experience. We had our coats on for the meal. Why??

Food was good, though unbelievably slow. We were the only puppies table when we ordered, so the kitchen could not have been backed up. Hard to imagine why it took so long.

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.

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.
