Really pleasant evening—- spectacular food, great waiter. Place was very loud though and it made it hard to hear my SO
Had dinner on New Year’s Eve and it was just lovely! Both the food and service were excellent, will definitely be back.
I had lunch on New Year’s Eve the service was fantastic and the food was delicious
Fresh swordfish special tasted like it was a frozen Patty from the supermarket, and toppings had far too much garlic. Atmosphere homey and service was prompt (food came too fast for a fresh seafood special prep - we ordered both last night).
Loud music playing AC/DC and Ozzy Osbourne wasn’t exactly what I expected for my Saturday night romantic dinner .. My complaint was met with sympathy but justified because a ‘client’ requested that type music .. i wonder if I have asked them to play Nirvana …
Whenever we have dinner at Locale, the food is fantastic and the service is excellent. The dining room has a warm atmosphere. The only thing that could be improved is the noise level, it can get very loud.
The first time we went here we couldn’t wait to come back! This second time did not disappoint! Lovely ambience and the food is wonderful! The salad comes on ice cold plates, and the appetizers and entrées are Visually pleasing as well as delicious.
The menu is pricey but in these trying times what isn’t?! We can’t wait to return and we highly recommend it!
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Helpful and attentive wait staff.
The waiter and staff are very helpful and fun
People were very nice but the food was not great. Salad was doused w vinegar and the fish and greens were drowned in butter. Expensive for what was offered. The key lime pie was delicious.
as always the owner and staff are gracious and helpful/accomodating to a fault.
the food was excellent.
Great food. Great service. Will be back (with friends)
Entrees came out right off the pan. Hot and flavorful.
a lovely restaurant, with a well balanced menu. there are also some very
interesting special dishes , and whether one leans to fish, meet, or vegetarian, there
seems to always be something to suit one's taste.
the owner and staff also make an effort to know you and to make you feel welcome.
i would recommend locale highly.
Everything was delicious entrees served hot
The way we like it
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Looking forward to returning soon.
The entire experience was almost perfect. Our water glasses were never below 1/3rd full. We had 6 in our party. Two folks ordered salads to share, and they both came in split plates. There were more veggies in my vegetable soup than came with the dinners! Main courses from beef to pasta to seafood to chicken were superb, including the gluten free pasta. The only minor criticism was that they added a 25% service charge to the bill because we were a large party. That should have been made clear at the time of reservation or seating, at least. But the service was excellent so we paid without protest. All staff were warm and welcoming.
I am glad that I had dinner here. It was further away than I normally travel but it was worth the trip.
We sat outdoor Great food, great service, and great atmosphere.
Great dining experience. Beautiful outdoor surroundings. Delicious food and wonderful service.
Always delicious and beautiful presentation. Thanks to Chef Carlos, Owner Vinny, and Server/bartender Norman!
First and foremost, the food was very good- the escargot was great as well as the tuna tartare appetizers. The veal chop and the pork chop were also good and properly prepared. The chocolate lava cake was excellent.
Now, the service. There were two parties going on at the restaurant besides the outdoor patio tables. To say that they were understaffed is an understatement. Our waiter was really very nice but they had him waiting about dozen and a half tables at the same time. I would not complain because I understand the difficulties that this and every other restaurant are facing now, getting help and trying to recover from the lost revenues during the pandemic. It was difficult to get the table cleared after courses were done and desert came long after the coffees were finished. Fortunately we were in no rush so there was no real problem with the nearly nonexistent service.
I will definitely return but probably on a weekday, not a Saturday night.
Good food, service and outdoors
Excellent food always consistent and service is always there when you need them. Family type restaurant
Good excellent, service wonderful and ambiance exceptional. The alcohol is pricy though.
Really good food each time I've eaten there. Everyone at ur table was quite satisfied. I recommend the Key Lie Pie
Great neighborhood spot with fantastic food. Loved the stuffed and fried zucchini flowers, salads and the special (lobster ravioli). Desserts were excellent, too!
Good food , good service , reasonably priced.
Casual atmosphere at the outdoor terrace.
Highly recommended.. Beautiful outdoor dining area.
Food was fantastic…. Cocktail was too sweet and (i felt it the next morning.)
We like the interior design but noise from the bar was very oppresive, also noise from other diners in the space. I suggest you install a sound absorbing hung ceiling and wall treatment to reduce reflected noice.
Food and service were good and worth the effort to improve the ambience.
Everything was great! Food and service!
Lovely lunch on the patio. My friend had never been there and was utterly delighted.
I wish I could tell you what our servers name was because he was so nice and so accommodating.
We all had the Chilean sea bass for lunch it was excellent. the outdoor area was full of guests and we were the last ones to leave three hours later.
I have been to locale many times and I’ve never been disappointed.
Excellent food and service
Perfect place for girl night out
Good time. good food .
My husband and I had a delicious meal. We ate outdoors and the setting was very nice. They did a good job in expanding their outdoor seating. People were dressed in shorts or dressy attire. Anything goes.
Good, but took too long to get the check
