“Overindulgence and great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

I have spent many days in this region, due to work and finding this gourmet restaurant was a fantastic discovery. Everything was perfect from start to finish and the flavors are of fresh meat and vegetables supported by fine addition of spices and wine, which I usually don’t expect until I fly back to Europe or take an excursion into New York City. To be honest I think it is worth the drive from Manhattan to Ramsey to overindulge with these amazing dishes full of flavor, prepared and served with dedication to the love of food. We are a group of 5 which have been in the region for a week now and all though we had more than enough to eat we all could not resist in overindulging and ordering a dessert, which was a first on this trip. Do not let yourself be fooled by the outside appearance of the building, you will experience a great interior atmosphere and the perfection to detail (which is reflected in the cooking as well). The staff is super friendly, competent and very observant and match the rest of the experience, there was one small flaw and that was the coffee which was bitter and brought me back to the reality, that I am in America and not in Europe. Believe me, this was the first of many visits when I am in the area and if you love good food, this place is a must.

“Unforgettable Meal”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

My daughter suggested dinner at Local last week and the two of us opted on a tasting menu. We had an amazing meal, each course wowed and delighted. The food was beautiful, the ingredients and preparation superb and the service friendly and attentive. Highly recommend Local it is a foodies dream without the pretense.

“Great FOOD”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This we have been to this restaurant twice for dinner. Both of these times we found the food to be extremely good and the service to be even better. It is clearly evident that the chef knows how to produce extremely good food and has trained his wait staff to be professional and yet endearing to the patrons. We found that the vegetables were specially prepared and very unique manner. We also love the pork belly appetizer. And BYOB !!! Make a reservation and try it. I'm sure you will enjoy

“Phenomenal Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

While this restaurant is not in the greatest location, the food and service were wonderful. We called last minute and were able to get a reservation and are very glad we did. The food was a bit on the pricey side but all worth it. The vegetables were spectacular and the dessert was awesome. Can't wait to go back. Just a side note, not a great place to bring kids, it is small and the menu does not have much that kids would like.
