The restaurant Local review

Analisas mom | Sep 3, 200904:06 PM

My husband and I along with another couple went to Local last night for dinner. This was our first visit so we had a very hard time locating the place. We actually drove by it 3 times slowly and completely missed it. We finally had to call them for direction We sort of felt like they don't want you to find it. Odd in my opinion. Anyway once we arrived we were warmly greeted by the hostess and taken to our reserved table. We really loved the over all feel of the place it was very urban & hip

Once we were seated menu's arrived and the print was so small we all had a hard time reading it. The presentation of the menu was very cool but very hard to read. I was really dissappointed on the quite small selection of things offered and had a hard time making a decision on what to order as nothing really spoke to me. My companions felt the same. We did order a beautiful bottle of red wine. It was $ 80.00 and normally retails for around $ 40.00 so I thought that was a very fair price. The sevice was also very good.

We felt like most of the starters were very over priced. We all ordered the Caesar I beleive it was $ 12.00 so we decided to split it. Thinking at $ 12.00 it should be big enough to split between 2 people. Wrong when it arrived it was a very small caesar. It was a very good Caesar but very small. Again for the price point it should have been larger. The main Meal my friends ordered the pork chop, and seabass. Both dishes were very good. The pork chop was a nice portion and the seabass probably 7oz served on Risotto it was very nice. My husband had another fish I think the red snapper it was very good as well but pretty small. maybe 6oz and I think about $29.00 I thought a little over priced.. I ended up going with the $ 23.00 burger good but not worth $ 23.00 bucks. The french fries however were fantastic but only had 6 of them. All and all it was a good experience. Would we go back. No. When we arrived home there was 1/2 of a left over cheese pizza from the baby sitter and my husband set down and ate it as he was still really hungry. We spent a total of $ 275.00 tip included and My husband came home and had a leftover cold cheese pizza. What can I say.
