One of the best restaurants around. Comfortable, welcoming service with attention to so many details. Creative and fun, as well as refined and comforting. More restaurants should strive to be this good.

I was happy that I’d made a reservation for brunch. We were seated immediately when we arrived. Very nice experience.

It was a great brunch experience. No crazy long buffet lines, very clean and attentive staff. Food was in point. Great options for vegan, keto and plant based diets. Definitely will come back.

I’ve been to Local Three many times and greatly enjoyed it. Our dinner last night though was just not very good. The service was still wonderful, but their BBQ menu was disappointing. All 7 of us got something different and only 1 person enjoyed their meal. Everything else was average at best. For the price, it wasn’t worth it. I think I’ll stick to brunch here.

I enjoyed Local Three. The food was great. The service was excellent. The staff were very attentive and courteous and I felt they went above and beyond. It is a place that I would recommend.

This was our second time at Local Three. We loved it before and just as much this time. The cheese tasting is wonderful and I highly recommend it. They have a fun theme of Coming to America right now and the menu and cocktail names reflect this. This is a great place for a date night.

Great brunch, except for charging $3 extra for hot tea!! Coffee, iced tea, and soft drinks are included in the brunch price. Why discriminate against hot tea drinkers?!

I had eaten at Local Three before, liked it enough to return, and found it an attractive restaurant in good proximity to the Atlanta opera. This time, I regret to say, the food was mediocre at best, the overall experience was not one I would aspire to repeat.

When we lived in midtown, we dined at Local Three for dinner or brunch at least 3 times a month. We moved away and haven't been back in almost a year. Our dinner was just as good as any other time. Our server was attentive without hovering. It was early on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was fairly busy so the sound level was pretty high. Overall, an excellent dining experience for my wife and I and our guests.

We have been back many times and have yet to have a bad experience. Setting isn't formal. Food is the absolute highlight. Service is always very good. Highlight was Schnitzel. Low mark was fries (meh). We will go back and we often recommend

I usually like L3, but did not enjoy my most recent experience. A bug crawled across our table while we were eating and gnats were flying around us.

Everything we had was great. ATL cheese steak was messy but good. Tacos we're good and the hot catfish was great in my book, as we're the fries and brussel sprouts. Definitely a great lunch spot

Sunday brunch. Food was sitting under heat lamps getting dry. Unappetizing. Not enough healthy fresh choices.

When we arrived, exactly on time for our reservation, the restaurant was practically empty. So, it was difficult to understand why the hostess made us wait so long while she was entering a whole bunch of stuff onto her iPad. The wait was just long enough to get us annoyed. Then, without asking for our preferences, she assigned us to a high top, which we definitely do not prefer. Fortunately, everything after we were seated at a standard table went perfect. The food and the beverages we chose were simply great. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. Overall, with the sole exception of the minor hitch at the beginning, we were very pleased with our dining experience.

Love this place! Everything is always delicious and the service is always wonderful but I think the brunch buffet might be my favorite because I have so much trouble deciding what to order! This way I get to try everything and of course I did! Brought three friends who had never been to Local Three and didn’t have to worry about “overselling!” They were all very impressed!

One of the best, if not the best, brunch in Atlanta. So much fun walking “down the line” filling your plate while you talk to the professionals that cooked the dishes. Love the sense of humor in the kitchen and the music!

The food wasn’t as spectacular as advertised. Burgers came out dry as did the fries. May have been under the lamp too long. The drinks were okay. I do have to commend the Brussel sprouts - they were amazing. Will try the place again - can’t discredit after just one visit

Everything at Local 3 is perfect except the lighting, which is horrible, we all felt like we were eating under spotlights (and all other tables, excluding the bar area, had the same out-of-balance light)

I ordered the trout. When the waiter served me, I was stunned by the size of the piece of trout on top of the greens. It was so small, I looked around for the candid camera. The waiter never came back to ask me how the food was, and when he removed my plate, he didn't ask if I had enjoyed it. I was prepared to question him about the portion size but just let it go when he never asked.

The truth is, the flavor of what little fish there was, was superb. The greens were particularly fresh and delightful. But I'm a small eater, and I actually left there hungry. That's never happened in my life before.

We visited for Saturday brunch all you can eat. No chicken, no beef, no seafood. Only shrimp fried rice and bacon. The food was good but over priced. Service was good.

Unfortunately, I find myself writing a bad review of a previously favorite local restaurant. It took 30 minutes after being seated to finally get our waiters attention and ask to place a drink order. We had had plenty of time to peruse the menu by that point, so put in our entire order. About 15 minutes later, my glass of rose came and it was warm. The Caprese salad was delicious, but although we had ordered it to be shared by 2 of us, we had to ask for (and wait for) share plates. I thought we might be on course to salvage the evening, but then came the king crab Cacio E Pepe, which tasted purely of salt. The dishes were cleared along with our silverware after that course, and when our mains arrived, we had to call the server back to ask for something to eat it with. The scallops were good, but all in all the terrible service spoiled our evening. Ignored, neglected..these are the words that come to mind about our service. What happened to you Local Three?

Service was great for drinks and appetizers and then dropped off a cliff when we ordered dinner. Waited over an hour for our meal with servers continuing to tell us “five more minutes”. Food was excellent and worth going to check out but just know you may be waiting a while for it to make it to your table.
