Local 127, in the downtown OTR district, is closed as of summer 2014 though it had a great run in Cincinnati. We all hope another fine restaurant will join the Cincinnati tradition of good food and great staff. SAD

Been coming to this place over the last few years. I think it has changed hands and go a little more downmarket. But the food is very good as is the selection of wines by the glass. Bit noisy for my liking but overall, a nice place to eat and sit for a bit. Will definitely go back there on... More

Had business dinner with 12 people here early in evening. Food was clearly local, well thought out, and the restaurant has a nice casual feel. Card is varied and has unique items, although relatively small. Price was reasonable - neither great value nor overpriced. Service was fine. I had the steak frites - met all expectations. Most others had scallops... More

This place looked nice, so I stopped in for a drink to check it out. Very comfortable atmosphere for me - I was by myself and had a small plate of pasta, roasted cauliflower and sauce - delicious. Very nice bartender and wait staff, who gave a good recommendation as to which small dish would go best with the wine... More

The food is variable with some items, like their Pork Tenderloin in the Porkopolis that are great, but most items missed on my recent visit. I went there for an anniversary with my wife. We started with the Pork Nuggets and Salmon Terrine. The pork nuggets were like saurokraut balls with a little pulled work - I have had better... More

Three of us went to Local 127 tonight because we were in town grading AP exams. Our hotel concierge recommended this place and we were not disappointed. Great service and the food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the beet salad. I'm not a big meat eater, so two of us split the angus burger, plenty without being overstuffed. Fries could... More

Local 127 is Cincinnati's local-food restaurant. The dining room has lots of large and heavy wood tables, and vintage posters decorate the walls. The menu is pretty limited - about a half dozen entrees and a similar number of small plates and appetizers. The steak frites I had were good, but nothing special. Service was good; prices were average.

The food was very good and the service was acceptable. It's a rather limited menu but there were some good choices. I had steak frites and my friend had scallops. So everything isn't local, although all the sides probably were. I would eat there again but there did seem to be many other places in the vicinity that might also... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times already. Food is very good, made with local produce. A bit expensive but very good. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice. I'm sure I'll be returning to this restaurant again in the near future.

I was sent to this restaurant by the concierge of my hotel. Short walk to an amazing restaurant with wonderful food and great service. I would go there again the next time I visit Cincinnati
