"Three of us came here for dinner after seeing a movie at the mall. The walk down from Bellevue Square was a perfect distance before dining. We had heard that the pizza was great and it didn't disappoint. The three of us shared two pizzas and a salad, which was perfect. Nice to be able to order a glass of house wine without taking out a second mortgage.
My only negative is that the room is very small, and on this evening it was quite warm and fairly noisy. The same food, service, and overall quality in a larger space would have been perfect. We'll definitely be back.

Local 360 is a sustainable modern American restaurant based in the heart of downtown at the corner of 1st and Bell. Our emphasis is on local sourcing, with the majority of it falling within a 360 mile radius of Seattle.<br /><br />Our products are sourced from the most humane farms we can find. Ideally, 90% of our raw ingredients come from within 360 miles of Seattle. Nothing we are doing is innovative or new — on the contrary, we are returning to a simpler way of functioning as a business while supporting our community.<br /><br />Local 360's bar is fully stocked with the largest selection of NW distilled spirits, wines and beer. <br /><br />The two private dining rooms, Chef's Table and Loft, are rustic rooms with their own kitchen, bar, and customized amenities suited for seated parties up to 65 guests and up to 75 guests in a reception setting.

"My husband and I ate here on Christmas Eve. We had never been to Local 360 before, but had a gift card we decided to use. Overall, we had a great time. I wouldn't say it was the best choice for Christmas Eve -- bustling atmosphere, small tables -- but had it been any other night we would have thought it was quite fun. So I would still recommend it.
Despite having made reservations, we were seated at a small table right next to the door. It was very cold and drafty there, so I kept my coat on my lap. When the table behind us opened up, we requested to move and being just one table further in made a significant difference.
The menu was interesting, so we decided to share an entrée and several small plates. The wood-grilled sourdough ($4) was delicious. We had heard that the PB&J Bon Bons were not to be missed, so we gave them a try. Yummy, yes! We also really enjoyed the Panzella salad. Our entrée was the fried chicken. Although our waitress had described it to us (it's not your typical on-the-bone piece of fried chicken) we were disappointed. The roulade was dense and uninteresting. Fortunately the accompanying grits and collard greens helped out in the flavor category. We were satisfied but wouldn't order the fried chicken again.
For dessert we decided to order ice cream and espresso so that we could make our own affogato. Our waitress said that although affogato wasn't on their menu, they would be happy to make it up for us. That was a nice touch that we appreciated."

Trellis is a wine country style restaurant featuring innovative farm to table cuisine – much of it grown in Chef Brian Scheehser’s 10 acre farm in Woodinville. Trellis offers a farm-fresh, robust menu that evolves with the seasons in providing only food and drink that celebrate small scale, artisan products at the height of their seasonal quality. Trellis has an enviable Kirkland downtown location at The Heathman Hotel. <br /><br /><br /><br />3 for 33: JOIN US AT TRELLIS SUNDAY & MONDAY NIGHTS FOR A 3 COURSE SEASONAL MENU FOR $33. <br /><br /><br /><br />SUNDAY & MONDAY NIGHTS- Any bottle of wine on our list at 1/2 price.

"Three of us went to Trellis for breakfast on Christmas Eve. We had checked out the menu online, so we knew that it was a standard breakfast menu, not a special one for the holidays. We were fine with that. But when we got there, we were surprised to see that the menu we were offered was missing at least three items, specifically everything that was offered with salmon.
They had a Build Your Own Scramble option. I asked if I could build my own omelet, and was told that it had to be a scramble. Then I asked for one of their omelets, without the salsa, but with spinach, mushrooms, and onions added. Oddly, that seemed to be no problem.
Before we had even ordered, the waitress came to our table and asked us if we had requested our check, which we had not. It was a strange encounter. The restaurant was not busy, so we had no idea why there was a mixup.
When Trellis first opened, they had a great selection of teas which they would bring to your table in little sample jars. You would get a thermos of hot water with the loose leaves in a strainer. Now you get a choice of about five basic flavors, and the waitress brings a single bag in a small ceramic pot.
So, sadly, we felt that Trellis still offers good food with local ingredients, but the service and atmosphere has gone downhill. It's too bad, because it used to be a neighborhood gem."

"We came here from out of town, not knowing where to find good Mexican food. Las Casuelas Nuevas was a good pick. We ate on the patio, near the "adobe" wall that is closest to the street. So, it's important to realize that you can definitely hear the street noise. Nonetheless, we didn't find it distracting, and enjoyed the ambiance inside the courtyard area.
Our food was generous portions. We ordered the tableside guacamole which we thought was a little bland (but I enjoyed since it wasn't too spicy). Then we split an order of pork fajitas with a side salad. They split the salad for us -- we thought perhaps it was two servings -- and there was plenty of food for. The fajitas were off the menu ... the "spicy" preparation (with pineapple) done with the not-so-spicy pork and it was perfect.
Service was friendly and reasonably attentive. We felt the margaritas were fine, but not great. We enjoyed the musicians that strolled throughout the patio, and had a good time.
The only detraction was the family that allowed their boys to play in the rock area. Fortunately they finished up quickly and left. Not really the restaurant's fault, but unfortunate for the rest of us.
So all in all, we'd go again and recommend it to others. It was a nice dinner for us.
