I really love Local 16. The food is great, especially the brunch. They offer a great brunch menu selection that includes unlimited mimosas and bellinis. Local 16 offers a sophisticated vibe minus some of the snobbish DC attitudes I've experienced at some other area brunch spots. If available, request seating on the rooftop. Its such a great atmosphere. You have... More

I have been to Local 16 in the past, mostly due to the great brunch deal they have. Unfortunately the price of brunch has risen and the quality of service has declined. I made a reservation for 10 on a Sunday at 11 am. We were sat outside at the absolute only table in the sun on a very hot... More

The rooftop dining deck is top notch for a Sunday brunch hangout for parties of two or ten! Excellent selection of brunch entrees (eggs, french toast, burgers and unique pizzas) and an option for bottomless adult beverages! Try the lox pizza for a change!

We just flew in to Washington and needed a quick bite to eat. In our hotel they recommended Local 16, because it was nearby and good. We were welcomed by a hostess. She showed us the table and brought some complementary water. We ordered beer (local Bohemian) and burgers. All came quick and was of good quality the staff was... More

We had dinner there on a Saturday evening and were pressed for time. We explained our situation to the maitre d' and she passed that along to our server. The food came in a very timely manner and was superb. The portions were large and the three dishes we had were all quite good.

This place is really a coin toss. The food is pretty consistantly good, and not excellent, but good, and the prices are ok for what you get. The atmosphere is nice and intimate whne you're having dinner and the roof top desk is great when you're having a drink or too. I wouldn't go out of my way for this... More

I go to Local 16 at least once a week. The service is awesome, especially Juan & Edwin, the best bartenders who work on the second floor. You can't beat the music or the atmosphere with a chill rooftop bar area and outdoor chandeliers. This place also has great food. My favorites are the hand tossed pizza & calamari. I... More

We chose this restaurant because their website looked good, and we liked their farm to table philosophy. We were able to make a reservation which seemed like a good idea in a Thursday night in busy dc... When we got there there was one other table. The atmosphere was great; a very cool old space. At first the waiter was... More

Ok I am being biased- this is my brother's restaurant but it is a fantastic place. It has a great deck with flowers all around and the food is really good. I should know since my brother is a huge foodie! The menu is close to his heart and I have had the pleasure of tasting the various items!

I liked the ambiance, although it was a bit dark for 7:30 p.m. Happy hour prices were good, snacks were inventive - e.g. deviled eggs, shrimp croquettes. Dinner pizza was great, especially the crust. Yum.
