"We took a dozen guests from Hong Kong in the F&B trade. This is a great spot for this. We ate Chinese style, with many different dishes from chicken to pizzas to salads in the center to be shared. They've a good wine list, perhaps a tad pricy. Waiters were pros if a bit over busy."

"This was a terrible experience for our group of 4 celebrating a birthday. The service was exceedingly slow. Really really slow and the waiter and other staff kept forgetting our drinks, cake, the food took so long and the fries were cold. After lunch we all felt so disappointed and didn't feel like even leaving a tip-but obviously did because that's how it is. We actually all agreed to check this place off our lunch restaurant lists rotation. It was just not as good as it used to be."

"I spent close to a year living and working in SF last year and this was my "go-to" place for great food/wine and a great vibe. I've been here several times (lunch, dinner, brunch, drinks) and have never been disappointed. It's a little off the beaten path but worth the travel."

"Cool room. Massive front door. Eclectic fun wine list. Try the chicken nuggets - chewy / crispy and totally flavorful. The mains - branzino good x twice. Duck salad also great. I'm sure I'll be back."

"I've been here about 5 times - it's the closest to home. And a great value - though I do wish the corkage fee was a bit more modest. The Branzino was excellent - a generous portion and perhaps the best dish on the menu! The kale salad was generous as well - a bit underdressed but we both enjoyed sharing the one we ordered. I'll be back."

"We had a group of 8 that became a group of 9, I called ahead to Local Kitchen to ensure it was okay and it was no problem at all. Positive initial interactions were a good sign, and it just went up from there. We had great bottomless mimosas, a variety of delicious food, and excellent service all throughout. And when the bill came, despite the mountain of food and drink it was very affordable and reasonably priced. Tremendous value, would highly recommend."

"We were one of the first to arrive on January 1st for brunch, around 11:10 am. We sat down and were immediately serviced with morning coffee. After another coffee refill, we received our food around 11:45 am with one order slightly above warm, but not hot and another order had just barely warm potatoes. We did noticed one kitchen staff rushing in about 15 minutes after we sat down.
We have always had good experience with Local and hope this was just a one time occurrence."

"One of the few spots in this specific neighborhood... and a decent choice -- plus a Truly Fantastic Value overall. While they feature pizza - I am not a fan of their crust style - a bit thick. However the pasta with a ragout was a fine choice. And the chicken nuggets were ultra potent! Red list always has a least one really interesting new world gem to try."

"The food and service was great. The only disappointing aspect of the restaurant were the tables which even after being moved don't seem to be all that stable. The first table was missing a leg as was the second then the waiter looked at us like we were the problem."

"Local is a great, convenient spot for lunches with colleagues and friends. There aren't too many places in this part of SOMA like it. They have a good menu - a mix of small bites, salads, pizzas and main dishes - really something for everyone. Enjoy!"

"Terrific experience-seated immediately for my lunch reservation, server showed up within 2 minutes to offer drinks and answer any questions-Nice wine menu and good selection of options for lunch, interesting salads -local salad was quite large and very good, but the crab sandwich was so delicately flavored- prepared honoring the crab not covering over it's flavor with mayo, etc - so that it was the best I have ever had. Then Jennifer, the lovely manager, came to the table and suggested the lemon tarte for dessert, which was the best I have ever had, as well. Nice local spot with really good food-parking is a challenge"
