Only drawback was the fries that came with the burger: mostly black, soggy and dripping in oil: oil temp too low perhaps, left in too long perhaps, and certainly not drained. But good meal overall, and very good service.

This Christmas week, perhaps due to the myriad staff/supply/COVID issues I've observed elsewhere, my experience was not quite up to par. Prices are up, ingredients are down, and our server was missing in action for most of my meal. I won't write off The Local just yet, but hope that they bring their game back up in the months to come.

Seven of us and no one thought their meal was good. The brussels sprouts were the best thing any of us had, and the burger is solid but steer away from the Korean tacos (meh) and the bowls which sound great in theory but are one note. We paid a lot for a really mediocre experience. Go elsewhere.

Wanted to grab something to eat. All three of us ordered various brunch items and it was exceptional. My daughter had the bacon/cheese omelette. Wouldn’t stop raving about how good it was and how the home fries were the best she’s ever had. My son had chocolate chip pancakes and loved them (also gave a shoutout to the home fries) and I got the short rib hash and eggs skillet. The short ribs were amazing. Go for brunch. Not the biggest brunch menu but what they do have is A+. You won’t be disappointed.

Started with Truffle Fries (addictive) and ordered the Blackened Tuna appetizer as an entree. Lightly seasoned fresh tuna on a bed of farro grains with arugula, avocado bits, and a roasted tomato. Very generous portion and delicious flavor.

Please rethink your choice of music. It made conversation difficult, especially when the restaurant was busy.

Had to send back tuna because it was bad. Had to make several requests two or three times and even then not honored. Service uneven. Seems like every other visit here is like this one. Management does not appear to care.

The booth was very private and the noise level was minimal. I was pleased that there were choices for my guest who is vegan.

It was nice to see the restaurant busy and we enjoyed our food. Wait staff was on top of things...maybe more people on staff than a couple of months ago when we were there, outdoors. Our orders came out quickly which was also not the case a couple of months ago. Seems almost back to normal!

People in the outside seating started leaving as no service in +20 min. Could result in damage to your reputation. Also please train your new hires. One of our servers was scratching food residue of a side plate with his finger nails and gave it to us afterwards. Gross!

I waited 25 minutes after being seated and no one came to take drink orders. Crickets. The table behind me was also annoyed trying to get service. I took my business else where. Yes, I actually had to leave and let greeter know who seated us as a courtesy. I will give the Local another try in six months maybe.

Our server was good once we had one.

Details were missed: We had to go get a soup spoon from the bar; we asked for a bottle of hot sauce twice which never arrived; and then our server mixed up our bill with another table and charged their meal on our card (I still don’t know if we were charged correctly because the slip didn’t have our itemized order, but we were running late so I paid just to get out of there). Food was okay because it’s hard to mess up two salads and chips with salsa. However the so-called crispy Brussel sprouts were not at all and weren’t really edible. We left the plate of that full. I’ve eaten here often with good experience but today was poor.

The vibe is low-key and the pace is relaxed, which is always a plus. I do wish the short ribs, mashed potatoes and beans had a bit more flavor to them.

It was a small cup with little detectable fish. When she asked the server for bread because she thought her meal would be larger, she was told there wasn't any bread. Our server never asked us if we wanted coffee or dessert following lunch. My Caesar salad with shrimp was fine. We were able to sit and chat, which we appreciated, but the whole experience was only fair.
