We went on Mother’s Day (a Sunday night), and overall, everything was good. The restaurant was surprisingly not-crowded and thus the service was really good and food was prepared the way we wanted it.

Great atmosphere good menu a bit pricey but good. Drinks and made weak or good depends on who makes them. This is my 4th time there and it varies each time. As for service not bad but it takes forever for someone to come to the table or come back. This is not Brazil so let’s train the staff and have the manager make sure everyone gets service. This time we stood at the door no hostess for 5-10min then walked and sat at a table no one came. Then went to the bar and sat to eat and drink. It was a slow night Tuesday but that means pay attention more in my opinion

Love the food, ordered the tuna Tatar for starters....if my eyes had been closed and someone fed me the tuna l would never guessed I was eating fish! Super fresh! Wow, I ordered the octopus, tender, best I tasted in awhile! My husband had the skirt steak with fries....he said it was perfect....guitar playing in the background was also great! Already recommended to friends, see you again with family!

This a great restaurant for any occasion. It works for casual dinner, date night, special occasion you name it. Our service and food was fantastic. The hostess greeted us promptly when we arrived. Our whole party was not there yet, so we went to the bar. The bartender was friendly, attentive and very helpful with suggested menu items. Great first impression from when we walked in that was followed up by a great long lasting impression from the whole experience. Highly recommend this restaurant. The menu is diverse which allows better choices for a mixture of people. We were a party of six and everyone in the party came out of the night with the same impression. Our party ranged in age from 26-84. It was enjoyed by all.

Parking is a bit tight so instead of putting any effort into finding a parking spot we decided to valet . $3 plus a tip. This is in the plaza with Parlour Vegan Bakery and the dry cleaners.

Nicely decorated and the bar opens to the outside.

We were seated at a nice, quiet table for two in the corner and we arrived in time to take advantage of the happy hour prices.

I opted for 3 starters and they were all delish. The fish taco had 2 good size pieces of fish and a creamy green sauce, not much else. The tostada was my favorite. Crusty bread, creamy cheese and fresh, earthy mushrooms. The spinach empanada was good too.

My husband got a calzone.

When we first ordered, the server said our meals would come out at different times because they came from a different part of the kitchen. I'm sure i make a funny face, then asked him to have everything come out together - he was able to accommodate.

Our server was more attentive at the beginning of our meal than when it was served. I wish he had come around when the meal was served because the calzone wasn't hot. Though it looked like it just came out of the oven, my husband was convinced that it had been cooked earlier and just reheated - and it wasn't hot all the way through. He didn't complain when the server did finally came around, it was too late and he had eaten quite a bit of it by then. That was the only negative.

Just as we were getting ready to leave, they were setting up for live music. If we didn't need to get to our next destination, i would have liked to stay a bit longer to enjoy the music.

We'll go back.

The food was very good; however, that's where the positives stop. We waited a long time to be greeted. an even longer time to receive drinks and appetizers. We were there for an entire hour before someone even took our order. We couldn't figure out who our server was (and it was supposed to be 2 people)- we never saw either of them. The server adjacent to us notice we were left hanging, and took our dinner order. The manager came by and asked how things were going- when we told him the service was lacking, he said he would check- and we never saw him again either. They cleared the silverware and gave 3 out of 4 of us fresh, but left the used silverware for one person. When she brought the new silverware she palmed the bottom instead of handle. A very odd experience. In an attempt to make it right, the server offered free dessert. We had a good laugh at how bad the service was... at least the food was good?!?

We had a great experience, our first time having dinner there. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and went there because of the live music, which was really good. We were surprised at how delicious the food was! We had a number of appetizers, including delicious meatballs with a tamarind glaze, and for main courses had the octopus and chicken risotto. Both were amazing. The service was really nice-Andresa was so sweet and helpful.

We will definitely be back to Locale. If you haven’t, you should definitely check it out!

We were taken to. high top table and sled for a regular height table and the hostess said we didn’t request one. We explained it was our first time there and didn’t know we’d need to request one. She gave us a really hard time and the manager came over, gave us a normal table immediately. The hostess said they were all reserved. Food was good, great drinks..but if you make the reservation on open table you need to call if you don’t want a high top

We love the food, never had a bad meal. You need to valet as parking is scarce. There is no outdoor seating, but the bar area is nice and feels outdoorsy. Try the risotto ball appetizer, it is delicious.
The inside area is really nice but the night we were there, there was a young man playing guitar and singing. He was very talented, but we could not have a conversation. It was way too loud.
