We’ve come to Locale many times and our favourite items weren’t on the valentines day menu. It was very disappointing. We had 1 round of drinks and didn’t stay for dinner. It really ruined Valentines for my girlfriend and I.

Quick, delicious food. The bartender/our server was very knowledgeable and quick and to help. Guitarist playing was great. It was perfect!

Service was terrible. It was a valentine day set menu and we waited almost an hour just for our apps. Then we got served our dessert and didn’t even get asked if we wanted coffee. Not impressed

Valentines. Food was excellent. We are a repeat customer. We had a new / different waiter this time. Too pushy - we felt rushed. We had to tell him to slow down more than once. Other than that, excellent as usual. We will be back.

Love the Calamari! Can't go wrong with the any of the pizzas! Looking for a good bottle of wine on the menu...try the Primitivo di Manduria Zolla.

I love the ambiance and the food was fantastic!!
I am a creature of habit and usually order the same food but this time I decided to try all new menu items (for app., entree and dessert). I'm so glad I did. Everything was delicious!!

Went out for dinner with a friend and everything was so good! Shared a pasta, Brussels, rapini and octopus and everything was so fresh. They had some healthy options, gluten free, and Plant-based which was nice to see and have options. A bit on the pricier side but good portions and well worth it! Service was good. Definitely will be back again :)

Another excellent dinner. Interesting menu, good cocktails, very good service. The cooking here is more consistent than the King City location, we've found. Third time here, so far every meal has been very good.

As usual, food was excellent. Problem was 3 main courses were brought to the table as either the waiter didn’t order or the kitchen didn’t prepare the fourth order. Three of us ate while the fourth waited 10 minutes for her meal. Disappointed in the lack of concern for the delay.

Matt was a wonderful server! I’ve had the pleasure of being seated in his section many times, so he knew exactly which drink I wanted and took very good care of us! I visit Locale at least one a month, by far the best and my favourite restaurant in the area. Always have amazing food and service and would 100% recommended it to anyone.

Christine is amazing! Our son recently graduated from law school and she was so interested and complimentary on our son’s accomplishment. Thank you for adding such sincerity to our celebration!
Food was incredible, as was my Morgan Bay. Please advise Christine how much we appreciated her interest and fine service.
Many thanks,

I found out during my visit last week when I arrived to a full restaurant, (there weren’t any tables available but was offered bar seating) that Mondays at Locale offered “Meatless Monday” kitchen specials. We both ordered from the regular dinner menu and found the food delicious and bar service really enjoyable.

So we returned last night, (with a reservation made), and while my boyfriend ordered from the regular menu, (and loved the lamb shank) I was excited to give the vegan and gluten free Panissa dish a try. I’m neither vegan nor GF but truly enjoyed this dish!!!

I love that I work downtown just to travel back to my own neighborhood for an excellent dinner where portions and prices are pretty fair for what you’re getting!!

See you next Monday Locale!
