While our outside table was very nice, our food was good and our service was very good, we were taken aback by a woman seated alone at a next table. She fed her small yelping dog from a dog dish that she had set on her table. We don’t mind dog-friendly and giving a dog water in a bowl on the ground, but this was not billed as a dog café for dog dining. This was off-putting to our dining experience.

Great service and food in a chill adult restaurant just two blocks from the Ocean Drive above 5th madness. We enjoyed cocktails, mussels, burgers and a huge portion of key lime pie in a jar. It was the mellowest place to watch the Super Bowl. We will be back.

best meal I had while in Miami. I went on a Monday morning with a Friend. we sat outside in the morning sun because it was a bit cool in the shade that morning. It was peaceful and not much traffic going by. We both had the egg and chorizo with potatoes and shared the banana pancakes. everything was amazing! will def come here again, will probably be my 1st day breakfast spot when I arrive in Miami!

Great night, good service and great food: steak a bit disappointing but everything else top shelf . Only weird thing hotel guests walking thru restaurant at dinner In bathing suits takes away from the $$$ dining experience.

I LOVED everything about this place. It was adorable location-wise, the drinks were so good. This location participated in Miami Spice and its a very good deal. I got the lobster Mac and cheese and it’s probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever eaten. My sister got the lobster roll which was also phenomenal. Both had tons of flavor, tons of lobster, very unique. I will definitely be coming back here.

In a word, overpriced. I know this is Miami and restaurants are typically very expensive, but this was surprising even by those standards. My seafood pasta dish was less impressive than something I could have thrown together at home. The fried chicken was good, but that was the only dish any of the four of us liked.

I tried the Miami Spice lunch menu when my mom visited because we wanted a casual, light, and nice beachy meal. I've actually stayed at the Sense Beach House (the hotel in which this restaurant sits) before, and I never tire of the chill, relaxed energy this hotel exudes. The drinks were fantastic--I have a "crush" on the beautiful, bright green "kiwi crush" cocktail, and the "tropical garden" with watermelon, gin, and rosemary did not disappoint either. The seared tuna salad and key lime pie were great! I was also in love with the spicy edamame hummus (only available during happy hour) and the goat cheese croquettes. I highly recommend going for a solid lunch after a day on the beach or for happy hour; the vibe here is positively delightful!

We ordered some Appetizers to start with, those were really good. As an entree I had the mussels and my boyfriend thr seafood pasta! Both was not very flavorable and also small portions. the lady who seated us was very unfriendly! Didn’t feel very welcomed at this place.

We ate here on a Tuesday night and it was extremely quiet with quick service. I had the salmon roast, which was good, but not great. The salmon was extremely tender, but the potatoes and carrots were undercooked. I also did not enjoy the sauce on the salmon. My partner had the Seafood pasta, which was good, but bland. The shrimp appetizer was amazing. The menu did lack a bit of variety; however, so I probably wouldn’t go back. Nice meal for a one-off, but not good enough to become a regular.

Thanks to Yelp, Google and Open Table I knew the food would be EXCELLENT! The truffle Mac & cheese is officially my favorite from anywhere here in Miami, still drooling. The food is extremely fresh, we were very happy with our meals.

Will be more than happy to return for Brunch!

Service was fast, easy, friendly. Our server wasn’t much of a talker but was very courteous. Was kind enough to bring us a little dessert with a birthday candle for my Mother In Law at no additional charge.

Can’t wait to come back and try the pancakes and eggs bennies!

Anytime I’m in Miami, we stop at The Local House. Amazing food and small space makes it such a lovely dining experience! Worth every bite (and penny)! The prices are actually much more reasonable than other restaurants on South Beach.
