A little loud upon our arrival at 7pm, but quieted down as the evening went on. Our server and the hostesses were very helpful and accommodating- they found a good seat for my elderly grandmother and our server (can't remember her name, but she was GREAT!) was able to counsel me on good, non-steak entree options as I was on a limited diet (partially-wired jaw, so soft food only). Wild mushroom rotollo was apparently a new dish that was being tested and MAN was it good. Never had a bad experience here, and I'd recommend this place to anyone who will listen long enough!

Simplicity on a plate: a tarragon compound butter garnished with a steak. If you love tarragon, and have been waiting for a dining experience where you can pay $40 for a plate featuring a luxurious, redolent exploration of Tarragon and nothing else, you, my friend, have finally found your restaurant.

Very romantic date night. We were seated near the bar and just loved the energetic atmosphere but yet felt that we had a romantic night. He had a rare steak (very pink and perfect) and I had the halibut. We ordered 3 side orders. Everything was cooked to perfection. The waitress was a bit standoffish and rolled her eyes at me (can't help if I'm a bit specific when I order). But the dinner was well worth it so we left her a great tip.

Started with the wedge. Great version using smoked grape tomatoes and fried pork belly. Excellent dressing. Had the Filet Mignon and truffle mashed potato. Filet was seasoned perfectly but cooked a bit longer than expected. The mash potato was marvelous. Would have to say the best I have ever tried. Service was great and enjoyed the experience.

Foodies have to love this place! Artistry in menu and dish preparation! Such unique spices and flavors in all dishes. Loved the Idaho trout and the duck breast was served to perfection. Espresso at the end of the meal made this a fabulous restaurant.

We were celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary. On the reservation we requested a quiet booth. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were promptly seated at a quiet corner booth by the window - just what we'd asked for. The food was delicious - Oysters Rockefeller for a starter; salads and then entrees - buffalo medallions, elk chop, and trout. All were delicious. We concluded the meal with a small sweet treat for my parents, brought over compliments of the manager. Lovely evening.

We went to Local when it first opened and had elk medallions with huckleberry sauce. They were absolutely worth writing home about. However, when we went back this year on our anniversary, we were both disappointed in the meal. It was far from bad, but it was also far from anything to write home about :-(. Disappointing, but good ambiance and decent service.

I had never been to Jackson Hole. This restaurant was recommended to us and all 4 of us loved it. From the French onion soup to the wedge salad to the steaks and fish........everything was wonderful! The restaurant itself is very nice, the staff friendly and the service excellent.

One of the best meals we had in Jackson. After reading reviews we gave it a try and it far exceeded our meal at Snake River Grill the previous night. I had the buffalo medallions and they were expertly prepared -- melted in my mouth. The coffee rub added a unique flavor and paired with the sweet potato puree and huckleberry glaze, it was a taste sensation not to be forgotten. My husband had a steak, and again this was perfectly cooked and packed with flavor. Our appetizers were amazing as well. A definite must when in Jackson!

My wife and I had a reservation on a Saturday night. Upon arrival we were assigned a table, but we asked to get another one that we liked better. The hostess gave us the other table. Thank you.
Service and food were outstanding. We loved our dinner and we will return during our next stay in the Jackson Hole area.

Outstanding experience all around, as usual!
Gets better every time.
Only issue was we had a 5:30 reservations as we had plans after and the hostess has no help getting people seated which was disappointing. Lots of wait staff and other staff running by- they all should have helped out to get the 5:30 reservations seated right away - not 10-15 minutes later.

The seats were too close together. We were touching arms with the people next to us and it was very uncomfortable. The food was ok but I do not think you get what you pay for. Drinks were not the best either. No pleased

Enjoyed the evening. Food and service was good except my husbands steak had to be sent back as too rare and came back a little too charred. The small dining area is intimate and away from noise of the bar. Bar was busy and also enjoyable while we waited for our table.

This is our second visit to Local. The first was 3 years ago and it ranked as one of the most memorable meals. When we knew we would be back in Jackson, we booked a reservation. It didn't disappoint. The food was exceptional. The cocktails were delicious. The ambiance was perfect for a get-together or for a special occasion (which this visit was). Try the brussel sprouts, they are absolutely delicious. And if you're a meat eater you can't go wrong with the burger. But, honestly, everything our table got was top notch. Worth every penny!

We were ready for some "finer" dining after three weeks in the State Parks; we were not disappointed. This restaurant is a cut above; it deserves its good reputation in Jackson. The menu is varied and it has some creative twists.

Earlier this week four of us visited Local and had a disappointing experience. We had bison, a ribeye steak, a New York steak, and a burger. The ribeye and the burger were good. The bison as rare instead of medium rare and was somewhat tough. The New York steak was very tough. My wife described it as the toughest steak she had ever had, and I had to help her cut her meat. We told the server about this, and she replied that New York steak is not the most tender cut (no surprise to us). We have had more than a few New York steaks in our live and know that a Filet is a more tender cut. However, I've never had to cut my wife's meat for her. This was a very disappointing response from the server.
For dessert two of us had the flourless chocolate cake and enjoyed it. Another person had the peanut butter pie and described it as good but rich.
This was not a satisfactory dinner for $200 before including any alcoholic beverages. We won't be back.

I had the Lockhart Beef Ragu and my husband had the Seared Buffalo Medallions. It definitely wasn't worth the price. The food lacked flavor. I felt like the staff were trying to rush us out as soon as we sat down. With that being said, the service was fast.

We were on vacation and I remember having a great meal here a few years ago. This time I was there with my husband and knew he would enjoy Local. We had the filet mignon with wild mushrooms and it was probably the best cut of beef we could remember eating. We went again the following night and ordered the same thing and the potato gratin. Amazing again.

A great place for a very tasty meal with plenty of options. Nice ambiance, modern with warmth. Service was very attentive. The Elk chop cooked perfectly had no gamy flavor. Sides were interesting and tasteful. Wine list was adequate. A very pleasant place to go in Jackson.

The food and the service was great.
The interiour sound level was much greater than I would expect for a fine dining experience.
I will have to say this, during our week in Jackson Hole, "Local" is where we had the best meal and service during our entire vacation.
