Locale in Closter

A group of 8 mothers had a great time eating in Locale's outdoor space.
The food was honestly really good especially for the price. There were tons of seafood in my pasta with real lumps of crab. All the fish(trout, swordfish and bronzino) were cooked nicely in old fashioned way with lots of butter and lemon and caper. Grilled octopus was one of the best I've tasted and very generous portion too. Eggplant stuffed with cheese was tasty. The desserts too were all delicious. key lime tart was excellent and so were the creme brulee and mango panacotta.
The only thing that bothered me slightly was their waiters. One was plain idiot who had a hard time getting our order where we had to repeat our order at least 3-4 times to get it right. Another was plain rude and irritated when we asked for things like another plate of spreads for bread as they only brought one for the entire group and when we complained that the ice coffee was too hot and too watery.
Despite some of these minor problems, we really enjoyed the time and the food and I plan to go back very soon.
