Our entrees were very good, deserts were below par, American coffee, after waiting twenty minutes for it to be ready, was terrible, sorry to say, no taste at all. We might give Locale another try.

The place is really cool looking and our server was good, but the food was seriously bad. How do you mess up a brick oven pizza? The sauce was horrible, the crust thick and doughy and there was barely any cheese on it. The fried zucchini was flavorless and the veal saltimbica was tough. Get a new chef!

It was our first time at Locale and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had one of their salads with Salmon on top as I am not currently eating carbs BUT the pizza looked AMAZING!! Next time I will eat the pizza instead!

Usually very good. This time very slow service and slower kitchen even though it was not busy. We were disappointed. Did not measure up to usual professionalism.

Everything was great. Excellant food and service. We had a 5:30 reservation for 8 people and a couple of people ran late, but we never felt rushed. Staff was great about it. Definitely will be coming back, and hopefully everyone is on time next time. :) Thank you for an enjoyable experience.

Our table was in the corner nice and private. Sounds good until the AC started to drop on me and the funny thing the staff knew there was an issue and still sat people there. The pasta dish was dry and starchy and 10 minutes to provide additional sauce to correct the problem. By that time the dish was cold with warm sauce put on it. We probably would not go back since there is numerous restaurants in the area.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant. The waitress service was terrible, but can’t blame her for the restaurant failing to provide us with what we asked for. She asked us for our food order before we had any drinks. Also, she bought out two bread trays with three small slices of skinny bread in each tray. There were seven people eating. We asked for more bread and they bought out another tray, again with three small slices of bread. We asked again for more bread and she said they did not have anymore. When our food came, she failed to take our appetizer plates away. My husband ordered lasagna, after about fifteen minutes, the waitress came and told him they did not have lasagna. No grated cheese was offered with our meal. Overall, food was ok. Our bill was $300 and we just expected better service.

We waited over an hour to get our dinner. We only saw our waitress to take out order. We had to ask several different staff members what was taking so long for our food.

We went in order to get to a show at the Patchogue Theater. The staff was most accommodating, even switching out a side after the order was served. Highly recommend

My husbands drink tasted strange (supposed to be Kettle and cranberry) - the waitress disappeared and nobody around to change it. We ordered an appetizer and it came out very quickly, it was really good. Thank goodness we had that to eat because our dinner never came out! The table next to us waited 45 minutes to get a cold dinner. That table asked to see a manager, I think the hostess brought over the bus boy. The next table to us got their appetizer and entree and we were still waiting. We left our table and went to the hostess to settle up what we ate and drank and to speak to a manager (our waitress was still no where to be found). We actually got the manager - not the bus boy. We shared with him our experience and he offered to give us a $75.00 gift card for another visit, we declined and told him we would not be coming back. I did appreciate that he tried to do the right thing but it was just so bad.

Our second visit here and we do love the atmosphere, it is quieter than other establishments which we like. The food is very good, wish there was a bit more of vegetarian options. Suggesting to always have an IPA beer on tap. The service was good but hope with more experience our server will be a little more on top of it. We will definitely be back again.

Locale is a great place to meet friends for drinks and dinner. This time we went at a later hour, so the crowds were a bit louder than another experience there. We absolutely enjoyed our food and service, but conversation was a bit difficult given the large weekend crowds. We will go back for sure! PS--the pizza choices are huge---they are separated by red or white on the menu with lots to pick from. The main dishes were large so we all had something to take home for lunch the next day.

We had a great time at Locale this past Friday evening! First time there, and will absolutely be returning! Our server Stephani was very friendly and approachable, open for the few questions we had about the menu and specials. We really enjoyed that we could actually have a conversation yet still enjoy the atmosphere, not too loud but still fun. The food was quite delicious, sort of traditional with a little extra attention to creating special dishes. With an app, entres, drinks and dessert, very happy with the total cost for the two of us, a deal for what you find in Patchogue or surrounding areas. Best wishes for sticking around!

We definitely enjoyed our first visit to Locale and will return soon. The pizza appetizer was cooked perfectly and was super tasty. Try the spinach and artichoke pizza—you will love it!!! Our entrees were just as impressive. Going early in the evening made for quiet conversation. I could see how it would be a hopping place later on.
