Great place for Greek food. The Mitsos lamb was excellent, as was the Branzino. Local Greek is in our regular rotation for date night.

We have been to Local Greek Multiple times. It never disappoints. The service was impeccable. The server was extremely friendly and helpful. It was nice to see such a lively crowd. I decided to go for stuffed calamari which was amazing. It was extremely fresh. The appetizer, zucchini fritters, were delicious. My wife’s lamb souvlaki was really good as well. We tried the orange cake for dessert and it was wonderful. This place is amazing, a neighborhood gem. We absolutely love this place. Good food good company and vibe

We had brunch in the nice covered outdoor eating area. The menu is extensive. The server was informative and friendly. Everything we had was delicious and generously sized. I want to call out the moussaka. It was the best I have ever had: bursting with flavors, a perfect balance of crispy and creamy;, with outstanding bechamel sauce.

Our first dining out venture since the pandemic. Vaccinations completed we arrived for our 5pm reservation. We were greeted by the owner and staff and immediately seated. The service and food were excellent as always. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning very soon

Ate outside under tents, so open and pleasant on a quiet street. Staff were great. Food was very good, esp. the mitsos lamb, but it could benefit from a bit less salt. Overall, good and worth the price.

Very good food. Restaurant could use some help with staff maybe add 2-3 additional servers to help; they were swamped but the servers tries and did the best they could.

Good was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

We took a chance on Local Greek for Mother's Day and couldn't have been more satisfied. The weather could have cooperated a little better as we chose to sit outside, but that was no fault of the restaurant. Food and service was excellent and we will definitely return.

The portions were small for the high price.
I had brunch, but the dinner menu is highway robbery for a GReek place.
Others nearby are cheapter. The rent isn't that high in that part of Princeton so that's no excuse for the prices. You'd think they were right downtown on the main drag to charge so much...

The food was very good and fresh. We had two appetizers and two entrees. Good size and nice flavors. Desert was where they really shined. I had a dough with custard and cinnamon. It was great and not too sweet. My husband had the baklava and loved it. All in all a great day out.
