“Fabulous unexpected find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Fresh, organic, well made and quite a delightful selection of food for vegetarians as well as regular meat eaters. Waiters are willing to talk about the food and take time with recommendations. Trust their advice; they are spot on!

“Great downtown dining in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is a fantastic restaurant with an ever changing menu comprised of an interesting mix of classic and contemporary dishes made with high quality ingredients cooked with flare and serves with style.

Last visit I had an excellent duck brest on lentils whilst my collegues swear that the smoke burger was exceptional.

Visit and be impressed by the European bistro vibe.

“On the edge of greatness. (Like only a couple blocks from the Great American Bsllpark.)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Homey stop the car. Good taps and even better "tapas" the Local 127 rocks.

Seriously stocked bar. Wonderful menu. And professional bar staff. This place will put a smile on your game-day or business face.

“Excellent local fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The name indicates their specialty - locally sourced ingredients. The food was great, but the tile floor and higher ceilings make for a rather 'vibrant' atmosphere and when plates hit the tile, it's pretty loud. The kitchen appeared to be pretty busy that night, but the wait staff dealt with it by providing amuse bouche and friendly, attentive service. I would highly recommend this place for the food, especially when you have the time and are not looking for a quiet, intimate conversation.

“Probably one the best restaurants in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Local 127 is definitely top notch. Went on a Saturday evening and it was quite crowded & noisey. However, food a service overshadowed the noise and crowd. We started with the House Smoked Trout, which I would highly recommend. It was so fresh it practically melted in your mouth. Then the 4 of us ordered a different entree which we all got to sample each other's dish. Each bite was an explosion of flavor in your mouth. Scallops were sweet and cooked to perfection. Cobia was light in texture and flavor, with an awesome caper sauce. Both the duck and the chicken were also very tastey. The sauces that went on each entree were fabulous! Our server was very knowledgable on the menu, however, it was very difficult to hear her due to the noise level but that said, I will still make Local 127 one of our favorite hot spot restaurants in Cincinnati!
