Food is fantastic. The wait staff is very cordial and awesome. I recommend this place to everyone. It's nice to sit outside when the wealthier is nice.

Came here with my family. Has a nice outside seating area but we ate inside. Service was very good. Has the pork chop special. Very tasty and moist. Salads were good as well. Place is a bit pricey.

You can never re-do a first impression. This one? DISASTER. As a preface, I'm used to NYC restaurants where you can expect elevated service from courteous professionals. Well, I had passed by Locale a whole bunch of times while in the area and thought: "This looks nice- let me peek at the menu." So, on a Friday around 4pm, I... More

Still making up my mind here on how I would rate this experience. The shrimp avocado salad was fresh , the tortufo was good as well as were a couple of pasta dishes but all the additional items that were ordered during the business lunch - wine, tea, coffee etc inflated the final bill a bit too much where one...

The roasted free range chicken is simply prepared and flavorful and truly outstanding. We were a party of 6 and sampled many dishes when we were done. From fried calamari to delicious salads. From pasta to ossobuco. All were happy with their choices.
