    Shrimp Arancini, Sweet Potato Gnocchi and Vegetable Fettucine were all great -- service was very quick and our server Justin was fantastic. Dragontini cocktail was also delicious. Would highly recommend!

    Service was slow even though the dining room was empty. Sterile atmosphere similar to a cafeteria. Salad was ok. Chicken was tough.

    Went on Valentine's Day and made it in time for our reservation. It took us 2 HOURS to get our food. Our waiter was noticeably stressed because it seemed like they were understaffed. Felt bad for the guy, but at the end of the day, it seemed poorly managed. Not sure why, but they need to get it under control. They comped our drinks, but it really put a crimp in my V-Day plans. Everyone was nice, but again, we still had to wait 2 hours before the food was actually on our table, and 45 minutes to get our order taken. We were comped a round of drinks, though. I wish I could say that would be enough to consider going back.

    My friend and I chose to eat at Local Motives because it is so conveniently located to the Marta station. We ordered a round of Palomas and the deviled eggs to start. The drinks were by far the best part of the meal. The eggs, however, were nothing to write home about. There wasn't anything wrong with them; they just fell flat. I ordered the special, a BBQ wing dish, for my dinner. It was only okay as well. The food was definitely overpriced for the lackluster flavor and the service. If I end up there again I would probably just stick to the bar.

    The staff was so genuinely kind, knowledgeable and welcoming. Helped us with dietary restrictions, helped us celebrate a special occasion and made sure we had everything needed. Food was delicious!

    This is in the W Hotel. It feels like an upscale cafeteria. Completely empty. No ambiance. Bright lights. Half of the tome there was no music playing so you just hear forks hitting the plate. It was billed as a vegetarian restaurant or vegetable forward but there was only one vegetarian entree. The food was decent but it just felt really awkward and uncomfortable

    Local motives is a really cute place that accommodated our party of 8 very well! The wait staff was very attentive and the food was fantastic! I had the orange waffles which were good. I’ll try the avocado toast next time, though! It was difficult to find any information about price or menu items online, but it was mostly reasonably priced. They also validate the valet parking, just remember to ask!!
