Immediately seated upon arrival (five minutes before reservation) and received great service from John. The food was delivered fast and hot and was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Not a great experience. They were not busy at 6:30 pm reservation time. We have not been here for a couple of years. We could not get a reservation at our usual 2 favorite local restaurants.

Food was just fair and not worth their higher prices.

We started with the bang bang shrimp appetizer, which was fine, yet half the size they used to serve.

My husband had a gastrointestinal issue after he ate his crab cakes. Something must have been wrong. They did not smell fishy, but must have been off. He also found many shell fragments in them ( which means the crab was not cleaned/picked through properly) and the spicy aioli all over the plate, was not necessary. I had the Steak Frites ( asked our server if it was a tender strip steak and he said yes) it was chewy and had sinew running through it, but was cooked medium rare as requested. I asked to substitute mashed potatoes for the fries and our server did it with hesitation.

The band was setting up in their corner front area by the bar, we like music, but this was way too loud for such a small area. We could not hear each other talk after the band started playing. Our server was so busy that we actually wanted our check and had to wait for him to come over and he asked if we were okay. We said yes ( since we had been done for awhile) and requested the check.

Also they had a couple dancing around in front of the band and we had to navigate around them to leave through the front door. Not enough room for dancing.

We did not ask for dessert.

Very friendly and responsive staff. Food was fresh and had many fun flavors. I had the salmon caesar salad. The fish was cooked to perfection. The cheesecake empanada for dessert was incredible!

The onion or mushroom soup which ever is being served that day is my absolute favorite. Today the duck soup was fantastic. The specials were the fish sandwich with coleslaw and fries and the pasta with steak and mushrooms. Had them both and were amazing.
Absolutely love this place. The manager Rick is always the best!! Love it!!!!

We were early for our reservation and the only table we were offered was down in the basement. We decided to sit at the bar, but we weren't even given the option of waiting at the bar until our table was available however, we decided to eat there. My meal was very good except it didn't match the description on the menu. The bartender explained there was a only a small side of pickled cabbage that accompanied the pan seared trout however, there was a very large portion of it sitting underneath the trout (I didn't want it in the first place, but the bartender explained it was just a very small amount). It also came with potatoes...there were 4 small cubes of potatoes - very disappointed that even after the bartender told the manager, he didn't even come over to see us. Overall very disappointed in the service and lack of "taking care" of us.

Our dinner was outstanding. Our server was knowledgeable and personable and made sure we had everything we needed. The General Manager greeted us and inquired about our meal. There was live music which was a terrific background while we had dinner. Thanks to Local on North for a lovely anniversary evening.

Great food. My daughter's food took several tries. Meat and taco shell only seemed pretty straightforward. Then remade, and they added onions. Food was excellent.

Food was delicious and our server was very nice and helpful. We went to downstairs which was relatively empty and felt like we were sitting in a basement. Lighting, decorations, soft music, etc. would have helped. I definitely would come back but would not want to sit in basement again. Wondering what the upstairs looks like???

The reservation was just as we had asked. We wanted a round table for five so we could all have good conversation together.
The menu had a nice variety and a few delicious “specials of the day”.
Our waiter was Alex. He did an excellent job. He was very efficient and never interrupted conversation. Everything we ordered was exactly as we had requested.
We never felt rushed. We were there a little over an hour, enjoying our lunch and our conversation.
It was a very good experience!

The charcuterie plate only comes with blue cheese and Brie and no substitutions. Not worth $25. The pizza is nice. The trout and the Bronzino special was also good.

Alex, server very polite, however brought our soup with pizza instead of prior. He was quite busy, but
When he brought bill and I complained that i didn’t eat soup because it came out with meal & asked to remove from our bill, he replied we said it was fine to bring out soup & meal at same time, which he never asked- or we would have said absolutely no. He did remove from hill and apologize.
Again, the restaurant was quite busy.

As always, the food is amazing. We had the steak tacos, spicy and flavorful, and the ahi tuna, fresh, perfectly seasoned and prepared. Our service was outstanding, and totally love The Geek Squad house band. It was a perfect Saturday night!

Love eating at Local bc it’s got a laid back yet stylish vibe, servers are friendly and knowledgeable, and they always have a fabulous daily special. The regular menu has never let me down with tasty and dependable favorites. I always take my friends here and wherever I get the chance to lock for lunch out with friends, Local is my go to option 😊

This was our second visit to Local on North and both were very good experiences. The food quality was very good and the service was attentive. The restaurant is a wide open space so is not an intimate environment. Other diners may well be sitting very close to you especially along the bench seating. This was not a problem for us but might not make this the best location for some occasions. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and will plan to be back
