    The waiter forgot about us for 30+ minutes. The main course took 45 minutes to get. We got our desert to go because we were there almost 2 hours. Note this is a Valentine’s Day dinner. We could see the waiter laughing and giggle with co workers on the floor while we sat waiting. We ordered the same mane course one well done and one medium rare and they gave us the opposite plates and the only way to tell was buy cutting into it.

    The food was extremely hit or miss. The Wellington was perfect but the chicken was way too dry. The tiramisu was great but the double chocolate cake was again way too dry. Side order pasta was incorrect and when it eventually came it was flavorless/watery. Way too inconsistent, especially for the price.

    3rd time we have been there, usually the food is very good, the service is always bad!!! Do not go on a holiday, the staff have no idea how to run a dining room (I grew up in the restaurant business) Today was Mother's Day, I know it is a busy day but it is is small restaurant and it appeared they had sufficient staff. The menu was disappointing and the service was awful!! My son-in-law ordered the tomato soup and lobster grilled cheese. The soup was cold so he asked if it was supposed to be served cold, NOPE it wasn't. A server took it back and he watched the server hand it to someone else who brought the same cold soup back!! Sent it back again , finally got hot soup. They forgot my daughter's soup and grilled cheese and when they finally brought it out her sandwich was burnt!! The rest of us got our appetizers with or after our Entree!! As a Mother, I ordered the bottomless Mimosas ($11.00 more than their online menu advertised) I requested a 3rd mimosa 4 times and the server had someone else drop the check before my drink came and we had to ask about desert, which we ordered 2 deserts. Finally after desert they dropped the check and a few minutes after we paid she brought my drink!!!

    We decided to give Locale another chance since the first time the food took longer than expected. This time around, we never even got the food. The drinks were served fast and the order was sent to the kitchen.. unfortunately, according to the staff the kitchen could not keep up, so all the orders were behind as it was clear other tables were also upset. No ETA on food arrival. After waiting for an excessive amount of time we just requested to pay for what we had so far which was comp for the inconvenience. It was our date night after paying a babysitter so image the frustration. Hope they can overcome their challenges for future guests.

    We went here on New Years after having been here before. We made a reservation through OpenTable and no where on there did it say “set 4-course meal $125”. We arrived to the restaurant, were seated and handed a menu. It was at this time that we saw at the top of the menu, “Set 4-course meal $125”. No sign, hostess didn’t say anything, nothing. Not until we sat down did we see this. We didn’t want the awkward conversation about leaving as to make the reservation, there was a $50/fee per person if you cancel the reservation. So we decided we’d stay. The quality and taste of food we were offered at this price point did not justify it. Bone-In Ribeye charred and flavorless. Lamb chops ordered medium and overcooked. The best part of the meal was probably the bread rolls. It’s disappointing after how pleasant our first trip here was. Locale is try to be this neighborhood “fine dining” but they missed the mark here.

    I understand they got a new chef. They used to have great Caesar salad and pizza. Neither are as good as they were. Our carrots were burnt, the fish was under cooked and the charcuterie board was terrible. We are close and really liked the restaurant, it’s not the same food anymore. This is the second time we went since the new chef, I couldn’t eat my tomahawk steak because of the layer of salt on it. The service was good but the music was terrible in the back ground.

    Locale WAS my favorite off strip restaurant. It may have still have been had management handled bad service in any manner showing a genuine concern for service. In a nutshell, after being served after 7:15 (we arrived at 6:30 and ordered fairly quickly), my husband’s chicken parm came VISIBLY burnt. It should NEVER have left the kitchen. The replacement was overcooked as well - we didn’t complain. My carrots required 3 requests and came 15 mins into my meal. My med rare hangar steak came cooked blue - ok I didn’t complain. All of the sides were massively peppered or had chili powder or something spicy hot (sugared carrots and fried potatoes?!?!?!). My carrots had no promised pistachios. My son said his rigatoni tasted like chef boyardee. I tried it - amazingly it did. I’ve never been to any restaurant from Denny’s to Craftsteak that charged for a bad entree that was returned (chicken parm). They did. They offered a comped dessert - we said no. They encouraged us to take it home. I ordered 3 desserts for 4 of us. They charged me for 2. My husband and I both heard nothing on comping only one so I ended up paying for 2 desserts I didn’t want. After complaining a second time they took off the chicken parm. I gave them a well used CC - instead of simply asking for another when it had less than needed left - they charged it over and over until they maxed it out and then asked for the difference. Do I look like a deadbeat (I’m an attorney, by the way). After all was said and done I spoke with the GM who offered nothing. I got the parm comped after much ado and paid another 20 bucks for unwanted desserts. Terrible management. Bad food. Bad food would have been forgiven had it been handled properly. Can’t recommend a service that has zero respect for customers. Bad experience after pumping up great food for a week for my visiting son and GF and it was my birthday dinner. (I didn’t mention that during the meal - I wasn’t looking for free food.)

    Locale Italian Kitchen + Craft CocktailsResponded on June 21, 2020Again Lisa, I wish I had more than 500 characters to share what really happened while dining with us. The amount of energy that you have spent on trying to get a free meal out of your husband not liking a Chicken Parm (which we remade to his specifications and he ate it all) expecting all our desserts for free for when offered one for the original Chicken Parm, and your GIFT CARD declining multiple times until we got it to the amount that was left on the card, is interesting to say the least.

    Food was bland and has no flavor. Our appetizer was forgotten and had to be requested several times before being brought finally and cold. We will never go back

None of the management or servers can recall this experience nor did we have any guest interaction with this experience. Please call our GM Paulo at 702.330.0404 so we can try to make this right.

    When I decided to go out to dinner Sunday, I wasn't looking for a deal. But, when I looked at Locale's profile, it said that they have happy hour all evening in the bar and when you book a lounge table that you're eligible for this promotion. I've been before and enjoyed the food and ambience, so I thought - great! When we got there, we were seated and given a happy hour menu. We ordered a couple glasses of wine from the HH menu and then looked at food options. We decided on some pasta and ordered but decided to change to a different wine. At this time, we were then informed that HH only applies to people seated at the actual bar and that the lounge area doesn't count. It really wasn't about the "deal" of HH. But, the bar only has 6-8 seats and they were all full...so how is that really a HH? And the hostess gave me a HH menu?? Why give me a HH menu when you seat me if it isn't applicable? There were also two very tipsy girls at the table next to us obviously indulging in HH, so not sure why we were excluded. Finally, when we got our bill, we were billed for 2 glasses of a wine we didn't order which was slightly more expensive that the wine we did order. It all felt very awkward and like we were being taken advantage of. My food was fine but not spectacular. The server tried his best, but it felt weird and quite frankly wasn't a pleasant dining experience. I hate to not recommend something local - but I don't feel like they are honest and I certainly felt like we weren't being treated fairly. It'll be awhile if I ever give them another chance.

    I wish I could say this place met our expectations, but it really failed. The food, had no flavor. 3 separate dishes, tasted like Olive Garden. When you’re an Italian Kitchen, I expect more. Vodka sauce had a spice, and more cream that a tomato cream base, chicken was is what tasted like Olive Garden with poor tomato sauce. Braised short ribs really lacked flavor. I should’ve just made a reservation for Bella Vita.

    We recently attended their establishment for Valentines day. Admittedly this wasn't our first choice but we thought it would be nice to eat somewhere familiar and close to home. We typically love eating at the Locale due to the quality customer services they typically provide but this visit changed all our opinions of Locale. I was extremely disappointed. The appetizer and main course tasted great like always but the quality of the food didn't match the value of what we ultimately received. The deserts were absolutely horrible, the chocolate cake tasted like it was sitting out too long and started to harden/dry up. My tiramisu was practically frozen. The amount of time it took for our food to come out was unbelievably long. I understand that they might have a staffing issue like most restaurants but when they have a set menu you'd assume the amount of time it would take to receive your food would be somewhat minimal or at least reduced. There was a lot of staff in the dining area but it appeared that my waiter was hustling to get half the room taken care of. With the amount of people working that night I feel like maybe only 2 or 3 people cared to actually provide great customer service while the others were just lingering around often on their phones. Finally our bill came out to be around 220 before tip. We didn't get any upgraded items but we both received a cocktail. The thing that angered me about the value of this meal is that they do a tomahawk Tuesday for two (still three courses) for $120 before tax, note on valentines day if you wanted to upgrade to the tomahawk steak its was an additional 40 dollar upgrade charge. The whole experience at the locale on valentines day just felt like a giant scam. It really saddens me that our experience that night was so poor. I held the Locale in high regards but after Valentines day, I probably won't ever go there again.

    Food lacked flavor - needed salt. Fresh pasta dough over worked and tough. Wine at room temp, no proper storage. Only table in restaurant, other than ownership/management.

    Happy hour is only in the bar and entrance area, not in the main dining room. Service was ok, but the food came out exceptionally slow and was also lukewarm. We were there 2 hours for dinner and ordered within 15 min, entrees came out an hour after being ordered. We ate a luchador 3 days prior (same ownership) and I would recommend it over Locale 10 times out of 10.

    I go to Locale at least 2 times a month for dinner but, I never had brunch. I don’t think I will ever go there for brunch again. Upon arriving the restaurant was empty. Firstly, I specifically requested Kusshi oysters and the waiter assured me that “ I was in luck” because they in fact had Kusshi oysters. When the oysters hit the table, they were in fact not Kusshi and no resemblance to them. Since the oysters came with a bottle of rose for a dozen oysters, we ended up having to pay for the bottle because the unknown oysters brought to the table were very unsavory. Once I received my entree it was cold. I had also requested a side of hollandaise which was cold and had the consistency of an aoili or Mayo. Another issue that so would like to address is the false advertisement of having porchetta on the breakfast pizza when it was a sprinkle of what looked like commercially purchased bacon bits. Overall my experience was disappointing and subpar. Every time I go to dinner the food is warm and delicious. Locale was one of our favorite neighborhood dining spots. But after this experience I don’t think I will return again.

    I chose Locale since they had sent notice on social media that they were opening while adhearing to the guidelines of the state to ensure the safety of their guest and workers. But upon entering the inside bar area was packed with patrons standing and sitting shoulder to shoulder, the front section where typically they don’t seat was full of 4-top tables and the main dining room looked absolutely packed. There was no socal distancing or tables separated and reduced capacity, it was actually the fullest I’ve ever seen the place since it opened. If it were not for the limited number of people siting in the patio section, which we ended up requesting because we didn’t feel safe sitting inside because they were not practicing the guidelines released, then we would have left. The food and service were fine, but for a restaurant owner to choose profit over their guests safety (yes I understand that restaurants have been suffering, but we all have) makes me uneasy returning to this place, even after the pandemic is over. Unfortunately because of this they have lost a good customer and advocate for their locally owned establishment.

    Locale Italian Kitchen + Craft CocktailsResponded on May 24, 2020This is blatantly false and should be taken down. We have only allowed up to 50% of our capacity per the SNHD and Governor Sisolak's directive. All tables are a minimum 6ft. apart for social distancing. We have taken this directive so seriously that when we first opened although allowed to open at 50% we opened for one week at 25% to ensure our guest and employee safety. We have always taken guest/employee safety past all guidelines. You should be ashamed to try to disparage us like this.

    We made a reservation for the patio that was confirmed and when we arrived the patio was full and we were offered a table for 4 on the sidewalk near the entrance. I did not appreciate the fact that we made a reservation for 4 and were offered something other than what we made the reservation for. The owner/manager obviously didn't reserve anything for us.

    Locale Italian Kitchen + Craft CocktailsResponded on May 25, 2020Hi Joe, I apologize we didn't have enough tables on the patio when you arrived. Our guests are enjoying longer dinners than usual after the lockdown and unfortunately, the only tables we had available were our auxiliary outdoor tables. We offered you the next available table directly on the patio shortly after you sat for dinner, although you chose to stay inside. Please contact our GM Paulo at 702.330.0404 the next time you dine with us so we can ensure that you have the table you desire.

    This was my second time to Locale, this first time was quite enjoyable even though I thought the portions were a little small for the price. The meal I had the first time was quite tasty so I was looking forward to going again. After arriving I was asked if I would like to go to the bar because my table was not ready (even though I had the first reservation and was the second customer in the door) so I did and had a beer. Fifteen minuets latter they came and got me but would not transfer my bar bill to my dinner check, no big deal. The waiter came and I ordered my appetizer and main course, the appetizer came and I still did not have any bread and when I was about done eating my appetizer the waiter came over to me the lobster pasta I ordered would not be ready till latter that night I asked how long that would be and he said he does not know but I should order something else because he did not know when it would be ready. I was very disappointed since I drove all the way from Summerlin for this dish, so I ordered the eggplant parmigiana. Maybe it was that I was disappointed but this dish was just fair, and I still had not received any bread. At no time did my waiter ask me if I would like another drink. At the end of my dinner at no time was I asked if there was anything they could do to rectify the situation. I do not know if I would drive from my side of town to go to this restaurant again, trust me if I enjoy a restaurant I have no problem with the drive but this was amateur on their part.

    Unfortunately the service was very poor. Seemed like opening night, although I know it was not. However, a manager took cocktails off our bill to apologize for the bad service. So I appreciated that. We will wait couple more months and try it again.

    Took my significant other in to celebrate a promotion. We are industry and familiar with the chef owner. We were expecting much more than we got overall. We had a reservation which we waited 20 minutes to be sat for. We were told they were flipping a table for us and asked multiple times if we wanted a bar table which we did not- or I would have come in as a walk in for the open seating. I was by the door the whole time and saw no one walk out so it was interesting that magically our table was ready after waiting to be “flipped” yet no one left. One of the managers walked over a “mistake from the kitchen “ which he was told to give away. We won the prize. I understand misfires but openly admitting it was a mistake you were asked to give away is a big no no. They also sent us a “sorry” dish for waiting which was the crustini with anchovies. Which is a trust dish, being of fish and cheese. I don’t think something like that should ever sent out as an apology to a table you don’t know. Food took a bit of time to come out and came out before the table was even set then bread service after that. Which was interesting. My Prosecco was poured in an average red wine glass which was also interesting that they didn’t seem to have proper stem wares for their decently sized wine menu. The octopus was salty, even for someone who works in the industry and has a higher tolerance for seasoning. The texture was also inconsistent- some parts being tough and under as well. It was recommended to us as a dish they “cook to perfection”.The mint and rabbit ravioli needed a lot of love- it was under seasoned. We were offered dessert but declined. I watched a server from afar open the sparkling water bottle and drop the cap on the floor- I turned away praying they did not put it back on and hopefully gave them a new comped bottle. We also saw a few other tables looking around with the same look of confusion and disappointment we had. Poor celebration which I felt embarrassed about.

    I was excited to eat at Locale Italian Kitchen. I need another Italian restaurant other than North Italia that is close to home to add to my list. The vibe in the restaurant when we walked in was great. Love the indoor and outdoor dining. Staff and service was excellent. Very responsive and fun to interact with. My wife and I ordered drinks and Mary’s Meatballs as an appetizer. My wife’s Dirty Martini was spot on. I started with some Prosecco. The wine list is good if you are looking at buying a bottle. I was a little bummed to see a very limited selection of Italian red wines by the glass. It’s an Italian restaurant. Probably 2/3’s of the red wine by the glass were non-Italian reds. I later had a glass of the Montepulciano with my dinner. It went perfect with my rigatoni. The meatballs were awesome !! The sauce was well balanced with acidity and sweetness. The meatballs were perfectly cooked and had the right amount of garlic. You could taste it, but not feel it. Being raised in an Italian family, I am one who appreciates good pasta dishes. Locale has my three favorite pastas…rigatoni, pappardelle, and bucatini. I am not a white cream sauce person, so the pappardelle was out for me. And tonight, I was not feeling pesto, so the bucatini was out as well. But, the king of pastas…rigatoni…was being prepared as it should…with a bolognese. The bolognese was done with braised beef and pork. The sauce was outstanding !! Unfortunately, my pasta was overcooked. I could tell as it arrived that it was not done al dente because many of the noodles were split and some easily tore when I picked them up with my fork. The texture was off, but the sauce was spot on. I was disappointed. My wife had the prosciutto and arugula pizza. It had a balsamic drizzle on it. She loved it. This is not the end for me with Locale. I will be coming back to give them another shot at the rigatoni. It’s not uncommon to get overcooked pasta. A busy kitchen or chef can easily slip up here.

    Very nice waiter who tried to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. Unfortunately the food just wasn't for us. We didn't like our meals and left them most uneaten. They partially comped us but we wouldn't go back.

    excellent service from host upon arrival to table service. Pasta dishes were tasty and pasta cooked al dente which many restaurants fail at. The mussels was delicious, but the octopus was feeble at best. It was more of a potato dish than octopus with not only very little octopus, but the most undesired thin tentacle ends as if they ran out if octopus to prepare the dish. In addition, it was overcooked and chewy

    Four of us dined at Locale and we all agreed that the food and service were fine, but it wasn't great. That's not to say there was anything inherently wrong, but all-in-all it was average at best. After the meal, we were too full to have dessert so the server brought each of us a pineapple chili after dinner drink. We all agreed, it was the worst! It was so hot from the chili that even a small sip to taste it put all of our mouths on fire. We are no stranger to heat; in fact, we all like hot and spicy, but this was over the top and totally detracted from the meal. Thumbs down.

    We went here for a pre fixed valentines dinner. You would think if the menu was fixed the service would be great. Well 2 hours later we were still waiting. It was way over priced for what you got. The food was ok but very noisy. Pop music in an Italian restaurant. Maybe just a bad day for them but don’t think we will be back any time soon. However, our waiter was great and tried to do whatever he could to make our 2 hour visit more pleasurable.

    We came here to celebrate my for my friends birthday. Appetizer we ordered was unavailable as three of the entrees. So kinda annoying. The pizza and octopus apps we did get were good. The red snapper was beyond salty and barely edible. Server was nice and tried hard but just wasn’t really a good experience overall.

    First time dining here. The service was excellent however the noise level was not the best. Music level could have been softer and perhaps a more sophisticated type of music. The salad was excellent and I had the chicken parmigiana which was not tender. The sauce was heavy and a bit tart. Restaurant got excellent reviews so I wanted to try. Perhaps it was just the meal I chose. I will likely not go back since it was a 35 minute drive and the meal was not to my standard. Must admit the bartender made an excellent cosmopolitan.

    The whole thing was just "average'. Food, service and noise level we're nothing special. We had read some really good reviews but we were dissapointed. There are really plenty of better Italian restaurants in town.

    The food was mediocre , overcooked meat and tasteless spaghetti & meatballs. I do not recommend this place. The best thing there was the bread & butter :/
